Facts about climate change

  1. The concentration of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere, as of 2018, is the highest it has been in 3 million years
  2. NASA and NOAA data show that global averages in 2016 were 1.78 degrees F (0.99 degrees C) warmer than the mid-20th century average. Seventeen of the 18 warmest years have occurred since 2000
  3. Eleven percent of all global greenhouse gas emissions caused by humans are caused by deforestation — comparable to the emissions from all of the cars and trucks on the planet
  4. In the Amazon, 1% of tree species sequester 50% of the region’s carbon
  5. Eleven percent of the world’s population is currently vulnerable to climate change impacts such as droughts, floods, heat waves, extreme weather events and sea-level rise
