We’ve already protected 15% of the Earth’s land and 7% of our oceans. But it’s not enough to achieve a planet in balance. The National Geographic Society is teaming up with the Wyss Campaign for Nature to address our current conservation crisis. Our goal: Protect 30% of the planet in its natural state by 2030

A future of rising global temperatures looks bleak. To stop it, we need to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 2.5% every year, until they reach zero. Here’s how we can do it.
How much do you know about the link between climate change, extreme weather, and health? Learn how it is all connected, the life-changing impacts on our planet and people, and steps you can take to help protect yourself and those you love.
Reducing your carbon footprint just got easier. This video uses animations and humour to teach people how they can personally help prevent global warming. This video was created by the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions (PICS), a collaboration of British Columbia’s four research intensive universities.
What is the true impact of global warming on human health? HMS and its affiliated hospitals recently signed a joint commitment to extensively decarbonize throughout our local medical community and actively contribute to reversing some of the ill effects of climate change. Aaron Bernstein will discuss how reducing greenhouse gas emissions provides health benefits, improves patient care and is quickly becoming critical to the future of health care.
Don’t get climate change? Watch an animation explaining the phenomenon as a 12-year-old. Global warming is the long-term rise in the average temperature of the Earth’s climate system. It is a major aspect of climate change and has been demonstrated by direct temperature measurements and by measurements of various effects of the warming.
