Sierra Club Volunteer
The world's scientists agree: Global warming is real, here, and happening faster than anyone predicted. But scientists also say we can curb global warming and its consequences -- if we take bold, comprehensive action now that adds up to an 80 percent cut in carbon emissions by 2050, or 2 percent a year. To build a cleaner, smarter and safer energy future that will meet and overcome the most urgent challenge facing us today — and protect everyone's children — we must all be part of the solution
