To make a real impact in your own carbon dioxide emissions, start here to learn what you carbon footprint is - how much your activities are responsible for emitting.
Global warming is the accumulation of hundreds of years of release of greenhouse gases, resulting from the burning of fossil fuels in industrial and household use. Changing the climate will require changes in daily lifestyle.
Climate Change Science Basics
The science behind global warming has been building a case for human impact for over 50 years. It was observed early on that carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is related to the planet's temperature, and that CO2 was increasing quickly as a result of industrial and household output.
Is Global Warming Real?
It is our position at Climate Action Now that the science is no longer in dispute, and that continued "disagreement" about whether global warming is the result of human activity is not productive. Without significant changes in the next 10-20 years, there will be irreversible climate impact on the Earth that will make it uninhabitable for humans, plants and other animals.
The reports from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IGPCC) was nearly unanimous and conclusive: Human activity is the cause of significant climate change, the scope and speed of which has not been seen on the planet before.
We Are The Cause - And The Solution
Human activity has caused global temperatures to rise, and they will continue to rise if we do not act now. For the future o the planet, and the world our children will have to live in, we urge you to take serious, active steps to change your lifestyle to a sustainable one. Climate Action Now is dedicated to helping you make those changes.
