Why Reduce Our Carbon

The evidence for rapid climate change is compelling:

The current warming trend is of particular significance because most of it is extremely likely (greater than 95% probability) the be the result of human activity since mid-20th century and proceeding at a rate that is unprecidented over decades to millenia.

Earth-orbiting satellites and other technological advance have enabled scientists to see the big picture, collecting many different types of information about our planet and its climate on a global scale. This body of data, collected over many yearrs, reveals the signals of a changing climate.
