No, I’m not being melodramatic. If you are still creating paper flashcards to study, instead of using Brainscape to create shared web/mobile study resources for you and your classmates, then you are personally increasing the pace of deforestation. This deforestation increases the production of CO2, which shrinks the cooling band of atmosphere that spans the earth along the Equator, which naturally warms the planet, which causes the polar ice caps to melt, which destroys the habitat of arctic wildlife, which consequently causes millions of baby seals to die.
So stop being a murderer, and instead use Brainscape to learn faster. You might just improve your brain power in the process.
