CURTAIL CLIMATE CHANGE - BACKGROUND INFO
Climate Change! It’s scary! Stopping it seems impossible but if we really try we can do it. It’s kind of like making a living as a musician - if you listen to the people who say it’s impossible, then you won’t try and it won’t happen. But if you persist, you can do it!
There’s a lot to say about climate change. This short video paints a picture of our current challenge to keep warming to 1.5 C or 2 C at the max.
