‘Climate change’ refers to changes in the earth’s temperature over the last 100 years. Since 1900, the average temperature on the planet has increased by 0.74 degrees Celsius and the UK’s sea level has risen by about 10 centimetres. Further global rises are expected, as well as more extreme weather events like flooding and drought.
There is very strong evidence that people are changing the climate with actions which create emissions of greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide and methane. In the UK, 40 per cent of these emissions are caused by individuals, mostly from energy used in the home, driving and air travel.
So what can we do? Some changes to the climate are inevitable, but there is still time to have a positive influence on the future. You can help minimise further changes and adapt to the new situation through decisions and actions which are often quick and easy to put into practice.
