We’re experiencing the most deadly heat waves in recorded history. Ice caps are melting, and permafrost is thawing, releasing catastrophic amounts of global warming methane into the atmosphere. Sea levels are rising, and drinkable water supplies are being endangered, while other areas are gripped in record breaking drought. The resulting migrations are stressing infrastructures and economies, and are resulting in bloodshed.
And this is only going to get worse if we don’t do something, now.
Thanks so much for anything you can do, today.
