Understanding the causes of climate change and finding global solutions
Climate change is the single biggest challenge currently faced by humanity. Its effects directly or indirectly impact every area of life in all parts of the world, in ways both small and large.
From changes in indigenous flora and fauna to extreme weather events, from consumer choices to national legislation, from individual transportation to international industry, the consequences of man-made climate change are all around us. To slow, stop or even reverse climate change, we have to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere.
Decarbonization is the only way forward. The first step towards a carbon-neutral future is understanding the terminology, solutions and technologies necessary to achieve it. Green up your vocabulary and wise up to humanity’s greatest challenge with our decarbonization glossary.
