Climate change is real.
Dying coral reefs, disappearing glaciers, severe droughts, catastrophic typhoons, rising sea levels - a quick glance at the news on any given day is all it takes to realize conditions on our planet are rapidly shifting.
Even more troubling is a fact now supported by 97% of the world’s scientists – our behavior is to blame.
If we act quickly and collectively, however, there’s still hope.

About The Climate Reality Project
At The Climate Reality Project, we know solutions to climate change are right in front of us. We can create a healthy, sustainable, and prosperous future by making a global shift from dirty fossil fuels to clean, renewable energies like solar and wind.
Our leaders aren’t going to do it on their own. So we’ve brought together millions to make them, demanding a change with a collective voice so loud and forceful they have no choice but to help shape the clean energy future we need.
This Why? Why Not? campaign is an extension of those goals, aimed at giving members of future generations a voice in one of the world’s most important debates, and providing them with a forum to spread it.
