The Climate Orb shows stories collected by Greenpeace and many other organisations that are collaborating this year as part of the TckTckTck campaign. If climate change is affecting you or your region - please submit a story to go on this Orb! If you're witnessing unusual changes in your environment - whether it's flooding, droughts or simply noticing the birds that don't come to your garden anymore - we want to hear about it.

The secret to securing a safe future for everyone is a strong, fair, and binding international deal to limit greenhouse gas emissions. Our leaders will make decisions this December at the UN Climate Summit in Copenhagen (COP15). It might seem like the future is in their hands. But really, it's in ours: If we all speak loudly enough, with one voice, they will know we care about this issue and they will listen. YoU-Turn the Earth!
