The CLIMATE PORTAL

We have a moral, ethical, and survival imperative to learn about climate change / global warming, and to act appropriately and decisively. This imperative derives from people living today and all those who will follow us. We must not have future generations say, of us: "They refused to learn" or "they knew but did not act."

What's the Climate Problem? What can We Do?

Global warming , the upward climate change trend of average global temperatures notably since 1975 exists, is due to us humans, and in the absence of substantial action will increase . Climate change / global warming impacts are seen now, and will be increasingly harmful to lives, peace, and justice, worldwide - if we do not act sufficiently. Without action there will be no safe haven, not even for the U.S. The preservation of a livable world for all, climate justice (the poor and vulnerable will get hit hardest), and intergenerational equity (our grandchildren will suffer) are at stake. Lasting solutions to issues of great concern, from food to water to health to immigration to women's rights to national security to species extinctions all require climate action, because climate is interconnected with all these issues.

It is not too late to mitigate global warming/climate change. The worst climate impacts can be avoided if we act now , responsibly and vigorously. It is cheaper and more humane to act now, relieving fellow citizens of the earth now and our descendants later by reducing destructive climate impacts. There are many positive opportunities. We can move into a new era transitioning to non-fossil energies , stimulating economies and creating jobs with better technology, reducing harmful climate impacts due to burning fossil fuels. Someadaptation will also be necessary. The framework being increasingly adopted is Climate Risk Management . Success means implementing a portfolio of climate actions. There is no silver bullet.

People of conscience and faith are standing up for climate action.

Climate Action is interconnected with Environmental & Social Justice

Climate change presents the single biggest threat to development, and its widespread, unprecedented impacts disproportionately burden the poorest and most vulnerable. Urgent action to combat climate change and minimize its disruptions is integral to the successful implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals.

CLIMATE CONTRARIAN CORNER

Climate contrarians aka "climate deniers or faux-skeptics" obstruct and/or cancel needed action on climate change, posing substantial risk to humanity. With right-wing think tanks, media and politicians, contrarians attack climate science and climate risk management. Contrarian content is scientifically wrong and generally intellectually bankrupt. Contrarian/denier fake-science fallacies made up by mavericks and charlatans are loudly broadcast using earlier tobacco industry tactics. Many deniers of climate science / climate risk management are funded by right-wing groups and fossil fuel interests afraid of losing wealth due to stranded carbon assets. More on contrarians on the Climate Portal . Contrarian NEWS.
