IN CASE YOU HAVEN’T NOTICED
WE ARE NOW IN A CLIMATE EMERGENCY
It’s not something that we need to avoid by 2030.
It’s already here and impacting life on earth.
These aren’t projections, these are catastrophes that are already happening.
Each year, air pollution alone kills 7 million people.
The impact of extreme natural disasters is equivalent to a global loss of $520 billion in annual consumption, and forces some 26 million people into poverty each year.
Warmer temperatures are linked to a 2 percent increase in mental health issues such as stress, anxiety, and even PTSD.
The effects of the climate crisis have cost U.S. taxpayers more than $350 billion over the past decade.
In just the first six months of 2019, 7 million people were displaced due to the effects of extreme weather.
We know. It’s bad… But, we can’t give up.
As you can see, lives across the globe depend on our action. It is essential that we all become a part of the movement and raise our voices together. Here are three global leaders you can join.
An international environmental organization whose mission is to end the use of fossil fuels and transition to renewable energy by building a global, grassroots movement.
A global environmental movement using nonviolent civil disobedience to compel government action and avoid tipping points in the climate system, biodiversity loss, and the risk of social and ecological collapse.
An international movement of school students, started by then 15-year-old Greta Thunberg, who ‘skip’ class on Fridays to participate in demonstrations and demand action to prevent the climate crisis.
