Unpacking the topic of climate change

This video talk initially about what we really need to make climate change awareness more noticeable and how we can achieve it.

Key words to be discussed are: up scaling, sustainable, changing climate and homogeneity.

There are so many different facets to climate change and ensuring a whole understanding of what it involves is what will help it to actually happen. Collaboration is the key term in this discussion and those who can speed up collaboration are communities, decision makers and interests.

People are experiencing the significant impacts of climate change, which include changing weather patterns, rising sea level, and more extreme weather events. The greenhouse gas emissions from human activities are driving climate change and continue to rise. They are now at their highest levels in history. Without action, the world’s average surface temperature is projected to rise over the 21st century and is likely to surpass 3 degrees Celsius this century—with some areas of the world expected to warm even more. The poorest and most vulnerable people are being affected the most.
