The impacts of climate change are accelerating. Greenhouse gas concentrations drive global temperatures towards increasingly dangerous levels. A warming planet earth means rising sea levels, increased frequency and intensity of weather events, like fires, floods, cyclones, droughts, ocean acidification, and species loss. These are putting our health, livelihoods, food security, freshwater supply and economic growth at risk. It is time to take action on Climate Change and participate.
