Climate Change Simplified
Climate has always changed, but since the beginning of the industrial revolution, we have more than doubled the amount of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere. This blanket of gas is trapping heat on our planet which is melting ice caps, and changing earths climate in drastic ways.
Too much CO2 is a huge problem. We are already above the safe levels of CO2 and it’s rising. Oceans are acidifying, glaciers are melting, floods, droughts, and food shortages are intensifying. 9 of the 10 hottest years on record have occured in this past decade with 2016 being the hottest year ever.
2 Ways to Address the Carbon Situation:
Stop Burning New Carbon
‘Do the Math’ is a short documentary that breaks down the fossil fuel situation in an easy to digest way. Fossil Fuel (oil) is the #1 Contributor… getting off fossil fuels is the most important task of our time. The transition needs to happen ASAP. It’s not happening fast enough. The two biggest emmiters, the U.S. and China, have not even signed Paris Climate Agreement.
Sequester New Carbon
Trees are the best/cost effective technology for carbon sequestration. Rainforests are the biggest carbon sink. The more trees we have on the planet, the more time we have to make the transition.
Why trees are the key to addressing
TREES ARE THE BEST CARBON TECHNOLOGY
Currently the most affordable and effective
way to sequester carbon from our atmosphere.
