What you need to know about climate change
What is climate change? Find out what it is, how it impacts us and what you can do to help.
Climate change refers to our planet getting warmer. Since before the industrial revolution (1850-1900) the earth’s average temperature has risen by 1.1OC. The last five to ten years have seen the greatest increase since records began.1
Now, our attention has shifted to the impact this could have. Scientists believe that an increase in greenhouse gases are the primary cause for climate change. And if the temperature rises by another 1.5 OC it would be devastating to life on earth.
