Forces of Nature or Climate Change?

The increase in global warming must not exceed 2°C above pre-industrial levels, and the world needs to work together to prevent this for our climate, our economy and our communities.

Fires, floods, droughts and cyclones are costing lives and livelihoods and reducing our productivity.

Instead of limiting our consumption of fossil fuels the world, in general, wants more.

We know that clean renewable energy is almost as cheap as fossil fuels, yet the big polluters have the ears of our governments.

We can do something before it is too late.
