Happy Halloween! We hope everyone is having a fun and safe night tonight.
What spooks you? We can tell you some things that are scaring us:
- The energy trapped by man-made global warming pollution is now “equivalent to exploding 400,000 Hiroshima atomic bombs per day 365 days of the year.” -James Hansen, Former Director: NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies.
- 17 of the 18 hottest years on record have occurred since the year 2001.
- Global temperatures warming by just 1.5°C could put between 20-30% of all species at risk of extinction.
- In America’s urban centers, where 80% of greenhouse gases are emitted, impoverished citizens live in neighborhoods with the greatest exposure to pollution and the climate.
But don’t be scared stiff! Instead, use this knowledge to take action and inform those around you. And don’t forget to enjoy some candy while you’re at it! 👻
