Save the climate!

Climate change is the greatest threat the world faces. It is already killing hundreds of thousands of people a year and if left unchecked will put hundreds of million others at risk.

Climate change is already wreaking havoc across the world with increased intensity and frequency of extreme weather events such as floods, droughts and storms, sea level rise, water scarcity, decline in agricultural output, proliferation of pests and diseases, and the extinction of species.

The Philippines is already reeling under the impacts of climate change. And although the effects of this catastrophe—stronger typhoons, rising sea levels, and corresponding effects on Filipinos, the national economy and the environment—are not inescapable, they are projected to continue and worsen, unless effective steps for mitigation and adaptation are not implemented immediately.

Catastrophic climate change isn’t inevitable: we know it is caused by human activities, including the burning of fossil fuels and deforestation.
