We need a global transformation across the world to respond to the climate crisis. In the words of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change: “Human influence on the climate system is clear and recent anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gasses are the highest in history. Recent climate changes have had widespread impacts on human and natural systems.”
The science cannot be clearer. Climate change impacts are worsening, and we are responsible. More and more people are demonstrating a willingness to change their lifestyles in order to be part of the solution, and governments are also responding to the need for transformation by taking climate action. But we are still far from where we need to be, and actions being undertaken globally are still inadequate compared to the demands of science.
