With the big picture top of mind it’s hard to just think about things like changing light bulbs.
I will, as part of the community, create an action plan to reduce my personal carbon footprint and I will reach out to my municipal, provincial, and federal representatives to demand Climate Action at every level of government.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report in 2018 found rapidly escalating risks as global warming increases between 1.5℃ and 2℃.
The report found getting on a 1.5℃ track is feasible but would require halving global emissions by 2030.
Climate scientists say it is still physically, technically, and economically do-able, considering the physics of earth’s systems and possible rates of societal change.
Success will depend on the ambition of governments and the effectiveness of campaigning by non-government organizations and individuals – like you. We can do this!
