What is your campaign goal? 

Stop the despair, be climate aware

Why is your campaign important?

This campaign is vitally important as climate change is severely affecting the wellbeing of people on earth. By raising awareness about this we have the potential to change people’s attitudes on polluting, recycling and minimising their use of fossil fuels.

Climate change is the increase of Earth's average surface temperature due to greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels or from deforestation, which trap heat that would otherwise escape from Earth. Fossil fuels generate the most energy for human use in the world. Over a billion means of transport are being used every day which rely on fossil fuels. This huge demand for fuel is resulting in a negative chain of events. Small changes in climate correspond to enormous changes in the environment. The use of fossil fuels affect the climate, it melts polar ice caps which raises sea levels, creates more intense heat waves, more natural disasters, frequent wild fires, longer periods of drought and intense tropical storms.

Climate change is one of the most insignificant problems the world faces and today. It is vital to change the attitude of people and how they treat climate change. Climate change not only affects humans, animals and the environment. It affects every living organism on this planet. It be can’t stressed enough how important a couple of degrees can alter the natural functions of our world. At the end of the last ice age, when the Northeast United States was covered by more than 3,000 feet of ice, average temperatures were only 5 to 9 degrees cooler than today.

As the world evolves, the demand for fossil fuels is becoming unbearable. Fossil fuels take millions of years to form and are considered unrenewable which is why humanity needs to find an alternative energy source or at least reduce the use of fossil fuels dramatically. In order to reduce the dependence on fossil fuels, it takes individuals and communities. There are multiple ways you can save the earth by minimizing your use of fossil fuels.
