Our planet is at a tipping point. Climate change is now affecting every country on every continent, altering and destroying marine and terrestrial ecosystems at an accelerating pace. Our new reality is that global ecosystems are under stress or dying. Weather events are shifting and becoming more extreme, threatening livelihoods, food production, and economies everywhere.
According to the United Nations, we have about 11 years to avoid the worst impacts of a warming world. We need to take action now at a scale and pace that matches the severity of the crisis before us, or we risk losing a stable, liveable world.
