The New Economics Foundation have calculated that we have 100 months left to avoid reaching the tipping point in greenhouse gas emissions beyond which dangerous climate change is irreversible. It’s a dramatic claim developed from some calculations run on existing science. You can read Mark Lynas’s comments on the claim here. The one hundred months campaign highlights the need for both personal action on climate change, but also the fact that we need our “leaders” to actually lead.
Action on climate change is not as simple as just changing your lightbulb – we should do that anyway – it also means the Government taking big decisions such as halting plans to build new runways and massively increase airport expansion. It means much more action on investment in renewables.
It also means taking action to give nature a chance to adapt to climate change. You can read more about this in our publication Adapt or Die
