The World Is In
A Climate Emergency
Code Red For Humanity.
Climate Change is the defining issue of our time and we are at a defining moment. From shifting weather patterns that threaten food production to rising sea levels that increase the risk of catastrophic flooding, the impacts of climate change are global in scope and unprecedented in scale.
Our Last Chance.
Reduce Emissions Now.
As populations, economies and standards of living have grown, so has the cumulative level of greenhouse gas (GHGs) emissions. The concentration of GHGs in the earth’s atmosphere is directly linked to the average global temperature on Earth. The concentration has been rising steadily, and mean global temperatures along with it, since the time of the Industrial Revolution. The most abundant GHG, accounting for about two-thirds of GHGs, carbon dioxide (CO2), is largely the product of burning fossil fuels.
When The Well Is Dry, We Know The Worth Of Water.
It’s A Race Against Time.
To preserve a liveable climate, greenhouse-gas emissions must be reduced by half by 2030 and to net zero by 2050. Bold, fast, and wide-ranging action needs to be taken by governments and businesses. But the transition to a low-carbon world also requires the participation of us – the citizens of this world – especially in advanced economies.

"Seaweed Farms" As was discussed in a previous article, the oceans of Earth store greater quantities of carbon than the rainforests. Excess carbon in the sea causes rising acid levels, which in turn proceeds to destroy coral reefs and thereby plunging marine...
"Fossil Fuels" These days, it's basically impossible to go about your day without hearing or reading the phrases, ‘cost of living crisis’, ‘suffering’, ‘fuel poverty’, and so on. The catastrophic inflation that has skyrocketed all of our living costs was driven, in...
