What is climate change?

1. Episode: What is climate change and is it real?

Climate Change is the bad news story that isn’t going away
From heatwaves to hurricanes, from droughts to floods
Extreme weather events are becoming more frequent, putting lives at risk
Human activity is causing our climate to change
The CO2 emissions from our cars, our industries and our power plants are heating up the planet
To prevent further dangerous levels of climate change
Countries around the world signed up to the Paris Agreement
The Paris Agreement aims to keep global warming below 2 degrees
To stop the planet getting warmer, we need to reduce the use of fossil fuels
And increase the share of renewable energy, like from wind, solar and low carbon sources
Climate action is everyone‘s responsibility: governments, businesses, communities, individuals
The actions we can take to reduce our carbon footprint, like investing in green technologies can also reduce costs and create jobs
The risks and costs of inaction are too high to ignore.
So what are we waiting for? The time to act is now.
