“Climate change is real.
It is happening right now, it is the most urgent threat facing our entire
species and we need to work collectively together and stop procrastinating.”
- Leonardo Di Caprio
(In his acceptance speech at the Oscars 2016)
WHAT IS CLIMATE CHANGE?
Climate change is a change in weather patterns over a sustained period of time largely attributed to increased CO2 emissions due to the burning of fossil fuels.
According to a report released by HSBC in association with The Thomson Reuters Foundation Trust.org in March 2018* India is the most vulnerable country to climate change with agricultural incomes being hit hardest by rising temperatures and declines in rainfall.
With every year, India receives more proof that the effects of climate change are already here, and they’re deadly. This year, over 200 Indians died in a single month because of storms and many states have been swept by unrelenting heatwaves with temperatures soaring up to 47 degrees Celsius.
Our choices, based on the food we eat, to the transport we use are compounding the problem.
