to play with her on another day
for all the life I will stay
to take a stand to stop the spew
of that climate freaking CO2

The Climate Reality Project::

excerpt:
TAKE CLIMATE ACTION NOW ::
The threat of climate change has never been more urgent. But the way forward has never been clearer. With citizens worldwide united in demanding action and clean energy solutions in our hands, a safe and sustainable future for the planet is finally in sight. And the first step is a global agreement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Paris.

This December, world leaders will meet in Paris to determine the future of our planet. We're uniting voices around the world to deliver one simple message: Take Climate Action Now

Zero global warming pollution. Zero extreme poverty.

Join Climate Reality Project in demanding that world leaders sign a strong agreement at the Paris climate negotiations in December.

Carbon pollution is costing us ::
Rising carbon pollution levels are raising global temperatures and disrupting our natural systems. The result? More extreme weather disasters, higher healthcare bills, and an uncertain future for our children, to name only a few costs.

The good news is that we have a choice. We can keep paying the cost of carbon pollution to our livelihoods, our environment, our health, and to every aspect of our lives. Or we can shift to renewable energy, put a market price on carbon, and make the polluters pay for the damage they do.

The Cost of Carbon ::
It's the number one threat to the future of our planet, and we can no longer afford to pay its staggering costs.

What You Can Do ::
A global challenge needs a global solution. So we’re inviting everyone to join the solution culture that’s taking on the biggest issue humanity has ever faced and to create a sustainable and prosperous future for us all.

To do this, we all need to step up and play our part. And there are many ways you can help. Wherever you are, whatever you do, and whatever time you have, you can do something right now to bring us one step closer to a future without carbon pollution.

Whether it’s watching a video that expands your awareness of the issue, sharing a post, signing a petition, reaching out to your leaders, donating to initiatives, wearing our gear, attending a training, or organizing a climate presentation in your community, the actions you take can have a real impact and help take our movement forward. We can create a better future, but only if we do it together. [more]

Attend a Climate Reality Training with Al Gore ::

The Climate Reality Leadership Corps training brings together a select group of individuals committed to addressing the impacts of climate change and implementing the solutions that will define us to future generations. This training is an opportunity to join a global network of leaders committed to solving the climate crisis.

Over the course of three days, you’ll have the opportunity to hear from experts who will share information about the science behind the climate crisis as well as their experiences educating and engaging diverse networks and communities. You will also have the chance to connect with a group of extraordinary leaders from a variety of sectors and countries around the world.

"Life changing," "re-affirming," and "empowering" are just some of the ways past participants have described their experience. Come as a leader, leave as a Climate Reality Leader. [more]

Overview of Greenhouse Gases ::
www.epa.gov/climatechange/ghgemissions/gases/co2.html
excerpt:
Carbon dioxide (CO2) is the primary greenhouse gas emitted through human activities. In 2013, CO2 accounted for about 82% of all U.S. greenhouse gas emissions from human activities. Carbon dioxide is naturally present in the atmosphere as part of the Earth's carbon cycle (the natural circulation of carbon among the atmosphere, oceans, soil, plants, and animals). Human activities are altering the carbon cycle—both by adding more CO2 to the atmosphere and by influencing the ability of natural sinks, like forests, to remove CO2 from the atmosphere. While CO2 emissions come from a variety of natural sources, human-related emissions are responsible for the increase that has occurred in the atmosphere since the industrial revolution. [1]

U.S. Carbon Dioxide Emissions, By Source
Pie chart that shows emissions by use. 37 percent is electricity, 31 percent is transportation, 15 percent is industry, 10 percent is residential and commercial, and 6 percent is other (non-fossil fuel combustion).
Note: All emission estimates from the Inventory of U.S. Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Sinks: 1990-2013.

The main human activity that emits CO2 is the combustion of fossil fuels (coal, natural gas, and oil) for energy and transportation, although certain industrial processes and land-use changes also emit CO2. The main sources of CO2 emissions in the United States are described below.

• Electricity. Electricity is a significant source of energy in the United States and is used to power homes, business, and industry. The combustion of fossil fuels to generate electricity is the largest single source of CO2 emissions in the nation, accounting for about 37% of total U.S. CO2 emissions and 31% of total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions in 2013. The type of fossil fuel used to generate electricity will emit different amounts of CO2. To produce a given amount of electricity, burning coal will produce more CO2 than oil or natural gas.
• Transportation. The combustion of fossil fuels such as gasoline and diesel to transport people and goods is the second largest source of CO2 emissions, accounting for about 31% of total U.S. CO2 emissions and 26% of total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions in 2013. This category includes transportation sources such as highway vehicles, air travel, marine transportation, and rail.
• Industry. Many industrial processes emit CO2 through fossil fuel combustion. Several processes also produce CO2 emissions through chemical reactions that do not involve combustion, for example, the production and consumption of mineral products such as cement, the production of metals such as iron and steel, and the production of chemicals. Fossil fuel combustion from various industrial processes accounted for about 15% of total U.S. CO2 emissions and 12% of total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions in 2013. Note that many industrial processes also use electricity and therefore indirectly cause the emissions from the electricity production.
Carbon dioxide is constantly being exchanged among the atmosphere, ocean, and land surface as it is both produced and absorbed by many microorganisms, plants, and animals. However, emissions and removal of CO2 by these natural processes tend to balance. Since the Industrial Revolution began around 1750, human activities have contributed substantially to climate change by adding CO2 and other heat-trapping gases to the atmosphere.

In the United States, since 1990, the management of forests and non-agricultural land has acted as a net sink of CO2, which means that more CO2 is removed from the atmosphere, and stored in plants and trees, than is emitted. This sink offset about 13% of total emissions in 2013 and is discussed in more detail in the Land Use, Land-Use Change, and Forestry section.
