What Is The Climate Crisis?
Since the Industrial Revolution, we have drastically changed our planet by burning fossil fuels. We began changing our global climate. We didn’t know we had that sort of power, but now, people around the world are now feeling the effects of it on a daily basis.
We are currently heading towards a 4⁰C increase in global temperature – we have already reached a 1⁰C increase. If every organisation and individual embraces change, we know we can keep climate change under 2⁰C. It doesn’t sound like a lot, but this graphic from WWF shows the effects of even a 0.5⁰C change. A scientific consensus has told us that if we can significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, we can end the climate crisis. We know that by applying the very best of people, technology and nature, we can build a flourishing society, end the climate crisis, and create a planet fit for life.
