Climate science can be overwhelming. Here’s your easy-to-share highlight reel.
POINT OF NO RETURN

Scientists have identified systems of ice, sea, and land that are on the verge of a climate ‘tipping point’ — a state that once reached, starts a reinforcing loop of worsening climate conditions.

LEVEL DOWN

CO2 levels have skyrocketed past what we could have ever predicted, jumping more than 1.9ppm from just last year — and it’s not stopping any time soon.

IN THIS ECONOMY?

Private investors continue to fuel the climate crisis and fund the fossil fuel industry, which has led them to lose more than $1 trillion in profit.

SOUTHWEST SCORCH

As the worst fires on record burn in New Mexico, wildfire instances and climate projections are lining up ‘eerily’ well.


Here’s what it looks like when people show up, voices ring loud and leaders act for the sake of the planet.

WAITING FOR GODOT

Democratic lawmakers on both coasts are passing laws to hold fossil fuel companies accountable for their role in the climate crisis as the opportunity for Congress to pass the Build Back Better Act slips away.

WE’RE STUMPED

Planting trees seems like a great solution to rid our atmosphere of CO2. But our canopied companions may hold onto carbon for only so long, rendering many carbon offsets that depend on trees obsolete.

BUILD BACK BLUNDER

There's plenty of blame to go around for the failure to pass Biden's Build Back Better climate agenda. Sen. Joe Manchin is among them. But according to at least one professor, the real problem is the economic models senators like Manchin rely on.

CLIMATE ACTION PUSH BACK

As activists pressure asset managers to divest from the fossil fuel industry, Republican lawmakers are passing legislation that punishes companies who do so.

A PROPER HEIST

In a twist of fate, the Bank of England has now mandated that banks who refuse to treat climate change as ‘first order’ threats will lose out on 10-15% of their annual revenue.

Climate change-fueled drought is drying up the Great Salt Lake, causing toxic and Dust Bowl-level dust to be released into the air and threatening to make Salt Lake City into a ghost town. And that's just the human toll!
