The Problem

Global warming is making our climate change. Rising temperatures are causing more extreme and destructive typhoons, hurricanes, floods, heatwaves, droughts and wildfires. These extreme conditions are destroying homes and agriculture, spreading disease and preventing people from accessing clean water. Climate change is making our world uninhabitable and we must act now to limit the damage.

Temperatures are rising

For more about how global warming leads to climate change see the Climate Reality Project’s climate crisis 101 and NRDC’s global warming 101.

We must act before it’s too late

Time is running out. There is a clear consensus that the next few years are critical if we are to stop the worst effects of global warming. The changes we make will take time to take effect so we must act decisively now. (If we stopped emitting greenhouse gases today, it would take several decades, if not centuries, for the earth to respond.)

But is it really for UK ELT, a sector of small and medium businesses, to take on this huge, global problem? If you are not convinced, please read: Why should you care?
