Some of the world's top scientists just released a bold new approach to tackle #climatechange. It's called the "#CarbonLaw" and it shows that if governments, businesses and individuals cut our carbon emissions in half every decade, we can stay under the climate danger zone of 2 degrees C in global temperature rise.

#Regram #RG @everydayclimatechange: Image by @sean_gallagher_photo A young boy pushes himself along the shallows of the Ganges River in Kolkata --- Coastal cities in India, such as Kolkata and Mumbai, have been identified as some of the most at risk to climate change effects, such as rising sea levels. In late 2016 however, Kolkata was named as one of the 11 best cities in the world for addressing the effects of climate change at the C40 Mayor's Summit in Mexico City. "Kolkata’s climate change risks have been exacerbated by unsanitary disposal and waste dumping...[The city's] project aims to eradicate open dumping and burning of waste and to limit the concentration of methane gas generated in landfill sites", according to National Geographic News. A promising step for one of the world's most vulnerable cities. --- #asia #india #kolkata #ganges #river #climatechange #water

#Regram #RG @virunganationalpark: In 6 weeks, Virunga's Chief Warden, @emmanueldemerode is running the @londonmarathon with the aim of raising $1 million for the families of fallen rangers. The job of Virunga National Park ranger is one of the most dangerous in conservation, over 150 rangers have been killed in the line of duty. We have an ambitious target to meet, and we will need the support of our amazing #virunga community to do it! Please click the link in our bio to read more and to support Emmanuel's campaign. Every donation is being matched by a generous donor, so this is a fantastic opportunity to contribute to the future of Virunga in an amazing way! #gorillas #wildlifephotography #virunganationalpark #unescoworldheritagesite #conservation #wildife #animals

#Regram #RG @oceana: Yesterday, in light of President Trump's #skinnybudget, Oceana said severe funding cuts could cripple key agencies. We call on Congress to reject President Trump's proposed budget. Jacqueline Savitz, Oceana's Senior Vice President for U.S. Oceans and Global Fishing Watch, said "Funding cuts of this magnitude could cripple key agencies like NOAA and the Coast Guard, which would be devastating to decades of ocean conservation."

#Regram #RG @rainforestalliance: Scott Pruitt’s remarks today are dangerous. Drought. Flood. Economic insecurity. Famine. For farming and forest communities around the world, the impacts of climate change are already very real. Forests capture greenhouse gases, preventing them from accumulating in the atmosphere and warming our planet. Deforestation on its own causes about 10 percent of worldwide emissions. Now more than ever, it is important to protect forests and join us in the fight against climate change. Someone’s got to do their job. #RainforestAlliance #ClimateChangeIsReal #PollutingPruitt #EPA #MarchForScience #ForestsResist

#Regram #RG @natgeoyourshot: [ #MyClimateAction ] Nevada Solar One | Photograph by Jassen T. (@jassensf) . “Spread over 400 acres, Nevada Solar One is a massive project built in the hot, dry desert just south of Las Vegas. The plant uses 760 parabolic trough concentrators with more than 182,000 mirrors that concentrate the sun’s rays onto more than 18,240 receiver tubes. Every year, the projected amount of CO2 emissions this plant avoids putting into the atmosphere is equivalent to taking approximately 20,000 cars off the road,” writes Your Shot photographer Jassen T. “It is a refreshing site to look at — I can’t wait to fly a solar-powered aircraft one day.” -- Join @natgeo in our The People vs. Climate Change initiative and use #MyClimateAction to share a first-person perspective on how we as humans are taking the positive steps we’re taking to protect the Earth.

#Regram #RG @nasaclimatechange: Sea ice helps maintain Earth's temperature, so predicting how the ice extent (a measurement of the area of ocean where there is at least some sea ice) might change helps us understand our warming climate. NASA scientists have developed a new model for better predicting the Arctic’s annual changes. Full story: https://climate.nasa.gov/news/2557/nasa-study-improves-forecasts-of-summer-arctic-sea-ice-coverage/.

#Regram #RG @johanernst: "For 25 years I've been exploring the world's forests and wildlife. Destruction of forests is the second largest contributor to climate change. Every year it produces more green house gas then all of the worlds airplanes, cars, trucks, trains and ships combined. The world's experts agree that stopping illegal logging is the fastest and cheapest way to fight climate change and to stop massive global extinction of endangered species. It is estimated that within 100 years there will be no rainforests left on the planet. One and a half acres of forest is cut down every second. Even the national parks in Africa are threatened. I'm right now in the Amazon jungle and the forests are disappearing faster then ever. During the last 40 years over 20% of the Amazon is being cut down. Help us to support the organizations that are fighting for the worlds forests and jungles. #johanernst #explorerjen #adventureactivist @leonardodicaprio #wildaid @wildaid #wwf #peru🇵🇪 Photo by #filipcederholm"

#Regram #RG @mic: Trump's team may reportedly cut as much as $800 million in EPA funding, which is terrifying.

#Regram #RG @sierraclub: The 1.35 million acres that make up #BearsEars National Monument are sacred to Tribal Nations with ancestral and spiritual ties to these lands. We cannot allow this protection to be undone by new Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke or the Trump administration. Photo is of the Department of the Interior building, home to newly-confirmed Sec. Zinke, was recently lit with messages urging Sec. Zinke to #StandwithBearsEars and protect our public lands. Show your support and go to sc.org/standwithbearsears to take action! #MonumentsForAll
