The science is indisputable: Human activities on Earth have been found to be the fundamental cause of climate change. Over the last century, the burning of fossil fuels has significantly increased the concentration of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) in our atmosphere — and this increase has led to a greater retention of heat, leading to the warming of the Earth’s surface.
Tackling climate change requires everyone to take action: individuals, governments, and businesses. Our individual emissions primarily come from what we eat, what we buy, how we power our homes, and how we travel.
It may feel small, but little changes to our habits have the power to make a significant difference in reducing the greenhouse gases being emitted into the atmosphere — anything from reducing your intake of meat to driving less. And when you take action, you might also inspire friends and family to follow you. By taking responsibility for our individual actions and calling on governments and corporations to do the same, we can make powerful changes to preserve the planet today for the generations of tomorrow.
