What’s the problem?

Over the last 50 years, human activities – particularly the burning of fossil fuels – have released sufficient quantities of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases to trap additional heat in the lower atmosphere and affect the global climate.

Sea levels are rising, glaciers are melting and precipitation patterns are changing. Extreme weather events are becoming more intense and frequent.

What can we do to help?

 

The truth about climate change can be daunting and leave us feeling powerless. This care package empowers you to give confidently to three of the most high-impact organizations in the world.

Coalition for Rainforest Nations

CfRN assists tropical governments, communities and peoples conserve their rainforests. Healthy rainforests protect against a changing climate, generate needed biodiversity and provide safe habitats.


Impact

  • Beginning in 2005, CfRN launched and championed a mechanism known as Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+) in the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Under REDD+, developing countries are provided with results-based compensation for preventing deforestation and degradation, and for conserving and enhancing carbon stocks.

Clean Air Task Force

CATF pushes the change in technologies and policies needed to get to a zero-emissions, high-energy planet at an affordable cost. Imagine a world where the energy needs of all humans are met efficiently without damaging the atmosphere.


Impact

  • Economic pressure from regulation, combined with low renewable and natural gas prices, helped retire more than one third of US coal capacity.

  • CATF convinced the US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit to block EPA from exempting biomass emissions from Clean Air Act regulation, and convinced EPA to remove biomass combustion as a compliance option in the federally administered version of the Clean Power Plan.

  • A $100 donation averts approximately 100 tonnes of CO2e.

Cool Earth

Cool Earth’s vision is a world where tropical deforestation and degradation have no role in climate change. The only way to halt destruction is to align the future of the rainforest with the people best placed to protect it. This means placing forests in the hands of the people who rely on its survival for their survival.

Impact

  • Over 900,000 acres saved of the world’s most at-risk rainforest

  • Over 200 million tonnes of CO2 locked in by keeping trees standing

  • 118 villages empowered and put back in control of the forest and their futures

  • For approximately $400 USD, the Cool Earth saves ~2.5 acres of rainforest.
