- Climate change is the greatest threat to us, our planet and all wildlife.
- Climate change is because we are all emitting way too much CO2 – in the UK we emit around 9 Tonnes of CO2 per person per year. This is around double what can be absorbed naturally by the earth, plants, trees and oceans
- Too much CO2 is in the air because around 80% of our energy comes from coal, gas and oil. We have to shift to energy from other sources. We must also stop deforestation (causes 20% of CO2) and reduce CO2 from agriculture (causes 10% of CO2).
- World leaders agreed to limit global warming to 2° So why is there still no plan for how to achieve 2oC?
- Urgent action to reduce CO2 is essential to avoid catastrophic climate change which wrecks our planet, kills wildlife and destroys our children’s future
