The science is clear if we pass the 1.5°C global warming mark we will face some devastating consequences as the worlds climate begins to shift in very unpredictable ways, changing jet streams and changing ocean currents, all with massive impacts on the weather systems we rely on for life.
The promises governments have made see us at a temperature increase trajectory of between 2.3°C and 3.7°C (Avg. 2.9°C) This level of global temperature rise will be catastrophic.
2019: Only 2 countries are meeting their climate pledges. Based on this revelation we are currently on a trajectory of a 2.4°C and 4.3°C rise. (Avg. 3.2°C) This will put all life on earth on extinction watch.
So here is what we individually need to do:
🌍 Become Climate Conscious
👩🏻🎓 Become Carbon Literate
🗳️ Vote for change
🌱 Switch to a plant-based diet
🚘 Drive less (switch to EV if you can)
☀️ Switch to renewable energy
✈️ Fly less (the worst transport choice)
At the same time we need to put as much pressure as we can on corporations and governments to mobilize and treat this as the emergency the science says it is.
