GLOBAL ACTION ON CLIMATE CHANGE THROUGH EDUCATION
The planet's climate is changing faster than at any time in the history of modern civilization due to human activity. Rising temperatures, desertification, drought, melting glaciers, floods, floods, are just some of the effects: climate change also generates migration and conflicts for natural resources. Every corner of the planet is hit by this phenomenon with more or less dramatic consequences, while national governments continue to pursue economic interests without proposing any courageous solution. That's why we propose the course: GLOBAL ACTION AGAINST CLIMATE CHANGE THROUGH EDUCATION.
The climate crisis cannot and must not leave us indifferent. We only have 10 years left to try to keep the temperature increase within the 1.5 ° threshold compared to pre-industrial levels. To overcome it even by half a degree, according to the IPCC report, would mean condemning the whole world to floods, drought, extinction of entire species and widespread poverty.
The planet's average surface temperature has risen about 1.62 degrees Fahrenheit (0.9 degrees Celsius) since the late 19th century, a change driven largely by increased carbon dioxide and other human-made emissions into the atmosphere. Most of the warming occurred in the past 35 years, with the five warmest years on record taking place since 2010. Not only was 2016 the warmest year on record, but eight of the 12 months that make up the year — from January through September, with the exception of June — were the warmest on record for those respective months.
Greta Thunberg has done an excellent job by striking with many other students against climate change, but we can also act through education. People need to be aware of climate change and its effects, as well as practical ways to stem and adapt to it. If we want to make a difference in the environmental emergency that our world is experiencing, we must know it and understand it fully, in order not to believe in climate denial, the lies of the institutions and the apologies of the governments.
