TIME IS RUNNING OUT
We must act now. Recycling is not enough. We need to drastically change our lifestyles, today, in order to limit global warming to only 1.5 degrees Centigrade.* We can achieve this by reducing our consumption of animal products (for our health and the planet), planting trees, re-greening and re-wilding whatever space(s) we can, as well as reducing the amount of water, energy and plastic we're using. I hope we can come together and make a difference, before it's too late.
*An increase above 1.5 degrees in global temperature means:
Destabilisation and melting of Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets (causing a several metre increase in sea level)
Increased risk of extinctions, forest fires and transformation of ecosystems
Increased risk to health, livelihoods, food security, water supply and ultimately lives
* Data shown are emissions after 2018
