Climate change isn’t a distant threat—it is happening now. The past three years were hotter than any other time in recorded history.
The impacts of climate change include more extreme weather and natural disasters, chronic droughts & economic instability. We’re focusing on innovative, science-based solutions that match the urgency of this crisis, such as restoring forests from Brazil to Indonesia and working to ensure a clean energy future. Together with supporters like you, we can halt the catastrophic impacts of climate change.
How We're Tackling Climate Change
Nature Based Solutions
We’re planting trees, which have enormous potential to store carbon dioxide. Better forest management can be as effective as if we stopped burning oil. Learn about Carbon Capture.
Promote Clean Energy
As global energy demands continue to rise, we’re working with governments to show how renewable energy can grow economies while reducing carbon emissions. Learn about what we're doing to promote clean energy.
We encourage people to talk more frequently and constructively about global warming so we can build a stronger common ground to halt climate change. Learn what you can do.
Working with Governments
We work with government leaders around the world to set aggressive goals for climate solutions that create jobs, protect people and cut pollution. Learn how we impact policy.
We’re helping the most vulnerable communities adapt to climate change by restoring habitats, such as mangroves that reduce the impact of severe storms. Learn about building coastal resilience.
Now Is the Time to Act
The science is clear: climate change is the most serious threat facing our planet today. Be a part of the solution—join our efforts to demand action from U.S. leaders, and determine your own carbon footprint and commit to lowering your impact.
