Action must be taken to work on global climate change

Global action

Senior Climate Scientist Science Global warming is happening now. The planet's temperature is rising.

  • UNICEF collaborates with public and private partners to develop innovative approaches and partnerships for children as beneficiaries of green finance Many of the most disadvantaged children do not have access to energy at all, let alone sustainable energy;
  • Future generations will have to live with a changing and more extreme climate;
  • Media pundits, partisan think tanks, and special interest groups raise doubts about the truth of global warming;
  • What we need is a set of smart, practical policies to jump-start this transition without delay and maximize the benefits to our environment and economy;
  • Globally, the average surface temperature has increased more than one degree Fahrenheit since the late 1800s;
  • The trend is clear and unmistakable.

The trend is clear and unmistakable. Every one of the past 40 years has been warmer than the 20th century average. The 12 warmest years on record have all occurred since 1998. Globally, the average surface temperature has increased more than one degree Fahrenheit since the late 1800s.

Global Warming

Most of that increase has occurred over just the past three decades. We are the cause. Where does all this carbon come from? The fossil fuels we burn for energy—coal, natural gas, and oil—plus the loss of forests due to deforestation, especially in the tropics.

The scientific evidence is clear.

Environment and climate change

Within the scientific community, there is no debate. An overwhelming majority of climate scientists agree that global warming is happening and that human activity is the primary cause.

  • Strengthening investment in education on environmental issues will empower children to be stakeholders and agents of change;
  • Media pundits, partisan think tanks, and special interest groups raise doubts about the truth of global warming;
  • Your generous support helps develop science-based solutions for a healthy, safe, and sustainable future;
  • Learn more about these policies — and what you can do to help support them — in these regional pages;
  • But to fully address the threat of global warming, we must demand action from our elected leaders;
  • The resourcefulness and imagination of young people is enhanced by their ability to bring fresh ethical and practical concerns to bear in creating the concrete solutions needed to protect environmental sustainability.

Children need your help

Costly and Growing Health Impacts Climate change has significant implications for our health, including increased air pollution and a longer and more intense allergy season. As individuals, we can help by taking action to reduce our personal carbon emissions. But to fully address the threat of global warming, we must demand action from our elected leaders.

  • Strengthening investment in education on environmental issues will empower children to be stakeholders and agents of change;
  • UNICEF collaborates with public and private partners to develop innovative approaches and partnerships for children as beneficiaries of green finance Many of the most disadvantaged children do not have access to energy at all, let alone sustainable energy;
  • Reducing tropical deforestation can significantly lower global warming emissions and plays an integral role in a comprehensive long-term solution to global warming;
  • Taking climate action can bring significant benefits to the United States , and the economic facts clearly support U.

Reducing tropical deforestation can significantly lower global warming emissions and plays an integral role in a comprehensive long-term solution to global warming. Media pundits, partisan think tanks, and special interest groups raise doubts about the truth of global warming.

This barrage of misinformation misleads and confuses the public — and makes it more difficult to implement effective solutions. Even as we work to reduce global warming emissions, we must also prepare for this dangerous new reality.
