The evidence of rapid climate change is compelling. In short, there is no “safe” level of global warming.
Climate change is not something bad that might happen, it’s something bad that’s happening. As climate scientist Kate Marvel put it, “Climate change isn’t a cliff we fall off, but a slope we slide down.” Every bit makes it worse. No matter how far down the slope we go, there’s never reason to give up on lowering our emissions.
Exceeding 1.5˚C, is likely to happen in our lifetimes, but it doesn’t mean anyone should feel apathetic. It means there is no practical danger of anyone, at any level, doing too much or acting too quickly to better manage their carbon footprint.
epar has released its December Team Stand UP Talk for supervisors and managers to share important climate change facts and information with their teams. The document will be arriving in epar customers emails this afternoon.
