We’re already seeing the effects of man-made climate change — but nature can help.
To confront climate change — a threat facing our entire planet — people everywhere must take part in practical, affordable solutions. We’re already seeing the effects of climate change, but thankfully, we’re equipped with the most effective tool to mitigate and adapt to it: nature. Protecting nature today means a better planet for future generations. Share these facts about climate change and help make a difference:
- 400 parts per million. The concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2)in our atmosphere, as of 2016, is the highest in 3 million years.
- 2016 was the warmest year on record. NASA and NOAA data show that global averages were 1.78 degrees F (0.99 degrees C) warmer than the mid-20th century average, making 2016 the third year in a row with record-setting surface temperatures.
- 11% of emissions. Eleven percent of all global greenhouse gas emissions caused by humans can be blamed on deforestation – comparable to the emissions from all of the cars and trucks on the planet.
- The Amazon is a carbon-storing powerhouse. In the Amazon, 1% of tree species sequester 50% of the region’s carbon.
- 11% of the world’s population. Some 800 million people are currently vulnerable to climate change impacts such as droughts, floods, heat waves, extreme weather events and sea-level rise.
- Coastal ‘blue carbon’ Eco-systems are critical. Just 0.7% of the world’s forests are coastal mangroves, yet they store up to 5 times as much carbon per hectare as tropical forest.
- Nearly 1 million hectares — lost. An area of coastal ecosystems larger than New York City is destroyed every year, removing an important buffer from extreme weather for coastal communities and releasing carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
- Save nature. It’s cheaper. Saving ecosystems is often more cost-effective than human-made interventions. In the Maldives, building a sea wall for coastal protection cost about US$ 2.2 billion. Even after 10 years of maintenance costs, it is still four times cheaper to preserve the natural reef.
- Nature is an untapped solution. Tropical forests are incredibly effective at storing carbon – providing up to 30% of the solution towards climate change. Despite this, nature-based solutions only receive 2% of all funding devoted to climate solutions.
- 194 nations, on board. In 2016, 194 countries signed the Paris Agreement, agreeing to limit global warming and adapt to climate change, in part through the use of nature-based solutions.
- Price tag: US$ 140 billion per year. This is what it would take to make the changes humanity needs to adapt to a warming world. It may sound like a lot, but it’s less than 0.1% of global GDP.
