A report by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change showed that there is irrefutable evidence of the causal links between human activity and climate change. Time is running out to make a difference in the future of our planet.
Will you write to your Members of Congress sharing the news about the findings and ask Congress to commit to working with the UN on this important topic?
A recent report by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) confirms that climate change is widespread, rapid, and intensifying. Climate impacts are occurring on scales greater than anything the Earth has experienced in hundreds, possibly thousands of years.
Scientists are in agreement that human activity is unequivocally causing climate change, and that some of the changes are irreversible. Among the most sobering findings is that the 1.5°C target will be out of reach without rapid, dramatic emissions reductions. From droughts, flooding and devastating wildfires, extreme weather events will become more frequent as the planet warms.
The new IPCC report must be the starting point for urgent and ambitious policy decisions because when we understand the facts of climate change we can work together to find solutions.
As we look toward the UN General Assembly next month and the UN Climate Summit this November, I hope I can count on you to support the work of the IPCC and the UN.
