You are invited to attend a Digital "New Day" Rally on February 24th at 3pm (EST), hosted by Interfaith Power and Light.
The climate community across the nation will (virtually) rally together to tell legislators its #TimeToAct on Climate. During the New Day rally we will discuss upcoming opportunities to address the existing crisis on the economic recession, environmental injustices, COVID recovery and climate emergency. Register here for the digital rally on 2/24.
A report released last month at the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) World Conservation Congress concluded that oceans have taken up 93 percent of the warming created by humans since the 1970s. To put that in perspective, if the heat generated between 1955 and 2010 had gone into the Earth’s atmosphere instead of the oceans, temperatures would have jumped by nearly 97 degrees Fahrenheit.
“We erred, though understandably, when we named our planet
‘Ocean’ would have been more apt, as 70% of the surface is covered with water.”
-- Bill McKibben, Falter (p. 46)
