Make a Change! Rise for the Planet!
Updated: May 1, 2018
Right now, the world is about 2.1 degrees F (1.2 degrees C) warmer than it was during preindustrial times. The 144 countries participating in the 2016 Paris Agreement announced that the world should limit the global increase in this century to 2.7 degrees F (2 degrees C) increase.
A century is a period of 100 years. We are in the 21st century 2001-2100.
So we have 82 years to turn this around! Basically our lifetimes as millennials. We need to take a stand NOW. Lead by example to teach and empower the generations behind us.
"Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over civilized people are beginning to find out going to the mountains is going home; that wilderness is a necessity." - John Muir
