I truly believe, after thousands of conversations that I’ve had over the past many years and more, that just about every single person in the world already has the values they need to care about a changing climate. They just haven’t connected the dots. And that’s what we can do through our conversation with them.”
Imagine being able to invite some of the leading minds of the climate movement over for dinner. You could pick anyone from anywhere. Who would be sitting around your table?
It’s hard to narrow down when there are so many amazing people out there fighting for solutions. (This must have been how Nick Fury felt while he was assembling the Avengers, right?) But, for us, we would try to pick people who are taking on the climate crisis in totally different – but equally incredible – ways.
There is broad scientific consensus that human activities, most notably the burning of fossil fuels for energy, have led to the rapid buildup in atmospheric greenhouse gases. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) stated in 2007 that CO2 levels in the atmosphere rose from a pre-industrial level of 280 parts per million (ppm) to 379 ppm in 2005. This coincided with an increase in the average global temperature of 0.74°C / 1.33°F between 1906 and 2005. In 2013, the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced that CO2 levels had hit in 400ppm. That same year, the IPCC concluded, “It is extremely likely [95 percent confidence] that human influence has been the dominant cause of the observed warming since the mid-20th century.” In 2012, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) released its analysis that shows that the decade spanning 2001-2010 was the warmest ever recorded in all continents of the globe.
Recently earth has recorded July 2019 as most warm month since beginning.😕
Some of the quote…. Said by dusty minds( understand the sarcasm).
1).The year 2078, I will celebrate my 75th birthday. If I have children or grandchildren, maybe they will spend that day with me. Maybe they will ask me about you, the people who were around, back in 2018. Maybe they will ask why you didn’t do anything while there still was time to act.”
2).We have everything we need. Some still doubt that we have the will to act, but I say the will to act is itself a renewable resource.”
- Your choice is Clear ….act now and it’s definitely never.
