Here is a recording of an EDF webinar that discusses a way forward towards sustainability and climate stability. The webinar reviews some of the major highlights from Blueprint 2020, in which the EDF’s scientists, economists, and political and policy experts have created a strategic plan to begin reversing global emissions and arrest some of the worst impacts of climate change.
EDF’s senior climate staff discuss the fact that climate change is the most serious environmental threat humanity has ever faced. The levels of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in the atmosphere we’re seeing today are unprecedented in at least the last 800,000 years.
Rising global temperatures, ocean acidification, rising seas and melting ice sheets all make a compelling case that climate change is already well underway.
