The rapid growth of global warming and climate change since the mid-20th century is hughely alarming for all life on Earth and the tackling of climate crisis absolutely needs to be the number one priority of all nations to tackle in the 21st-century. 

What the climate crisis is and how it is affecting everyone on the planet is a topic that has taken a number of decades to break through into the mainstream and become common knowledge. 

None the less, that knowledge is complex and can at times appear to be very contradictatory… hence why I have a module devoted to purely understanding the science of the climate crisis and how it will impact the world moving forwards. 

Tackling the climate crisis is the responsibility of every person on this planet and that process begins by understanding the problems that need to be solved.

Exactly 40 years ago, scientists from 50 nations met at the First World Climate Conference (in Geneva 1979) and agreed that alarming trends for climate change made it urgently necessary to act. Since then, similar alarms have been made through the 1992 Rio Summit, the 1997 Kyoto Protocol, and the 2015 Paris Agreement, as well as scores of other global assemblies and scientists’ explicit warnings of insufficient progress. Yet greenhouse gas emissions are still rapidly rising, with increasingly damaging effects on the Earth’s climate. An immense increase of scale in endeavors to conserve our biosphere is needed to avoid untold suffering due to the climate crisis
