OUR PLANET IS BURNING because of climate change. Heatwaves have increased in frequency, intensity and duration across the world. The world is already 1.2°C warmer than pre-industrial times and every fraction of a degree counts. With 2°C of global warming we will have more intense droughts and more devastating floods, more wildfires and more storms (UNEP).

“Our fragile planet is hanging by a thread. We are still knocking on the door of climate catastrophe. It is time to go into emergency mode — or our chance of reaching net-zero will itself be zero.” ~ UN Secretary-General António Guterres at the 2021 UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26)

Eliminating food waste, eating plant-based foods, using renewable energy, rethinking transportation, buying less and recycling are some of the things we can do to fight climate change.
