Climate Change Series

Climate change is not a future threat – it’s a present reality

Bill McKibben

Global climate change is the greatest existential threat of our time. Never before in human history have we confronted a problem that threatens the very livability of the planet for both ourselves and other lifeforms.

While human evolution has prepared us to tackle short-term, here-and-now problems needing immediate action, we are ill-prepared to address climate change. Climate change is a slowly evolving phenomenon rooted in our deep attachment to the energy sources, specifically fossil fuels, that have come to define modern society and all its conveniences.

Nothing short of a global revolutionary change in how mankind sources and uses energy is needed, and we have just a handful of years to get the job done.
