Climate change is the challenge of the century facing people and the planet. Most scientists agree that carbon emissions from our fossil fuel based economy are a significant cause of global warming. Rising temperatures are causing glaciers to melt, sea levels to rise, violent storms, mega-fires, droughts, coral bleaching, and more. These changes are having a major impact on food supply, availability of fresh water, and human health and safety, not to mention the devastating effects to many species and habitats. Through collective political, corporate, and societal action worldwide, we have the opportunity to turn the tide on climate change by investing heavily in renewable energy sources, resource conservation, transportation alternatives, green building technologies, and other carbon emission reducing measures.
