As dangers rise, we must slow global warming
We plan our lives around the seasons — and the weather patterns we’ve come to expect.
But a hotter atmosphere is upending those patterns: Air and ocean currents are shifting, while more evaporation fuels disastrous deluges in some areas and drier droughts in others.
That means more intense hurricanes, heat waves, wildfires and floods.
Yet we can still turn this around by slashing carbon and methane pollution and tapping nature’s unsung solutions.
