Climate Crisis

The debate about global warming is over | We are the main driver of climate change on earth 

The Climate Science

The AR5, the common name of the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)’s Fifth Assessment Report from 2014, analyzed 9,300 peer-reviewed research papers by scientists worldwide. The results of the analysis were clear: climate change is here, now. Its many forms—floods, superstorms, record-breaking heat waves, wildfires, and droughts, to name a few—are spawning misery, despair, and conflicts worldwide.

We find ourselves in a new era, the Anthropocene, one in which humans are the primary drivers of change on planet Earth because of the excess carbon we release into the atmosphere. WePlant recognizes that any debate about climate change is now over.
