Climate Planet Acts
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. Global warming and climate change are often used interchangeably. It is extremely likely that human influence has been the dominant cause of the observed warming since the mid-20th century. The largest human influence has been the emission of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide. The effects of global warming include rising sea levels, regional changes in precipitation, more frequent extreme weather events such as heat waves, and expansion of deserts. All acts that help avoid or reduce greenhouse gas emissions or acts that mitigate climate change are linked to this sub-category.
Taimiteko (i.e. Seedling Deed) is a good deed for the environment and for employing young people.
Choosing renewable electricity (wind, solar, hydro power, biomass, geothermal, wave and tidal energy) in operations is the simplest and most efficient climate act for companies in general to reduce their CO2 footprint.
One of the problems preventing companies from doing more good, is simply the lack of science and sustainability expertise. This can result in decisions, investments and eventually acts that are not as impactful as they could be.
Within us normal folks, it’s difficult to understand which acts are better than the others and which acts truly make a difference. The climate change, among others, is a complex issue hard to comprehend and sometimes so are the solutions.
We decided to bring in the science. As functionally as possible.
