We all need to do our part.

The first step: Talk about climate change with friends and family.

The first step in solving climate change is to talk about it with friends and family.  Let people know you care or are concerned. Comment on social media to show people like you that you worry about climate change. Knowing others share our concerns helps all of us feel connected to each other and feel more confident we can solve problems together. Start today, share this page on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.

According to the world’s leading climate scientists, even global average warming of another half a degree or so puts the world at grave risk of even more extreme changes to our weather. Unfortunately, if we don’t get a handle on our energy and land use, humans and natural system could face additional warming of 3 degrees or more.
