Rising sea levels, retreating glaciers, changing growing seasons, record temperatures, droughts and record rainfalls all demonstrate that our climate is changing. And this is only down to a 0.8 degree increase to the average global temperate We are trying to limit the rise to 2 degrees but at the current rate of carbon emissions it is more likely to be 6 degrees. Civilization at this point would be very different with some countries unable to operate.
Our aim by 2020 is to:
- Reduce our carbon emissions by 40% by 2020 and 80% by 2050 to help to limit the temperature increase to 2 degrees
- Create a ‘Transition Team’ who will coordinate and take forward how we will need to adapt to the changing climate. You can view discussions on how to adapt here
