Climate change is no longer a topic up for debate. It is an undeniable real threat to our entire civilization. The effects are currently visible and will be extreme if no appropriate and sustainable actions are taken. Through education, innovation and staying true to the commitments we have made, we can take steps towards protecting our planet.

CLIMATE STATISTICS

As of April 2018, 10 developing countries had successfully completed and submitted their first iteration of their national adaptation plans for responding to climate change.

Since 1950, the number of record high temperature events in the United States has been increasing, while the number of record low temperature events has been decreasing.

Atmospheric carbon dioxide levels reached a record high of 400 parts per million.

Arctic ice sheets are melting at 413 gigatonnes per year. Ocean levels are rising due to ice melting from the rising heat, ultimately increasing water’s temperature by 0.309 degrees.

The amount of spring snow cover in the Northern Hemisphere has decreased over the past five decades – snow is melting earlier

From 1880 to 2012, average global temperature increased by 0.85°C.

From 1901 to 2010, the global average sea level rose by 19cm as oceans expanded due to warming and ice melted.

Given current concentrations and on-going emissions of greenhouse gases, it is likely that by the end of this century, the increase in global temperature will exceed 1.5°C compared to 1850 to 1900 for all but one scenario.

Global emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) have increased by almost 50% since 1990.

Emissions grew more quickly between 2000 and 2010 than in each of the three previous decades.

It is still possible, using a wide array of technological measures and changes in behavior, to limit the increase in global mean temperature to two degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels.

Major institutional and technological change will give a better than even chance that global warming will not exceed this threshold.

THE CLIMATE CHALLENGE

It’s imperative that we make the changes necessary to protect our planet. Discovering new, innovative ways to sustain the planet will also provide huge opportunities to modernize infrastructure, create new jobs and ultimately promote global prosperity. We have a unique opportunity to show how tackling climate change can go together with a healthy economy and an improved quality of life. Get started with Prepr today and commit to help change the world we live in.
