TO COME ABOUT: meaning and examples

Good morning everybody. 

A few days ago I received a very interesting email from one of our Daily Vitamin subscribers about the scheduled blackout (apagón) that will take place this evening between 19:55 and 20:00

Even if you are not particulary worried about or interested in the global warming topic, I encourage you to participate anyway. I have included the email (in Spanish) at the end of this message.

Today's expression is: to come about

It means: to happen.

Example 1:
Climate change has come about because humans are burning too many fossil fuels.

Example 2:
George: I don't understand! How has global warming come about?
Al: Well, George. I think it may have to do with all of the pollution we are creating.

We hope you will read the information after my signature, and that you will participate tonight. Let's send a strong message to our leaders.

Make the best of your day!
