The scientific evidence is clear and irrefutable — human activity is causing our planet to warm at an alarmingly high rate. Not only is this warming climate trend happening right now, it could have serious outcomes on our food supply, lead to mass migration and conflict, and without being alarmist, it may very well threaten the future survival of the human race. It’s time for the “is it real or not?” debate to end. Action needs to be taken right now, not tomorrow. What you can do:
We encourage you to know and add your voice to the issues that are shaping the climate debate as well as emerging, evidence-based data that directly relates to changes in our climate.
Consider climate issues on local, national and global levels, and vote for candidates who will advocate for climate-related legislation and policy improvements. The right climate legislation has the power to move mountains.
Pledge to separate your investments from exposure to fossil fuel assets and increase your stake in clean energy companies. Join a movement of millions of individuals from dozens of countries representing trillions in assets who are avoiding the investment risks of climate change and lightening their carbon footprints. When it comes to climate change, money talks.
Hold yourself accountable
Take a personal inventory of your own personal impact on the planet. With greater awareness comes significant change.
Reduce. Reduce. Reduce.
Make a concerted effort to reduce greenhouse gases in your daily life — at home, in the office or on the road. Eat less meat. Go solar. Change the lightbulbs in your home. All of these are an act of green. Record them here.
From using water efficiently and driving a more fuel efficient vehicle to getting involved in the Earth Day movement, there are so many ways to stand up and act for your planet. You’d be surprised at how much positive change a single person can effect.
