Take action to stop climate change

CO2: FOSSIL FUELnext >

Carbon dioxide is the largest contributor to global climate change. Burning fossil fuels (coal, gas, and oil) adds carbon dioxide to the atmosphere, and deforestation diminishes the ability of "natural sinks" to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. See Beyond Coal and Beyond Oil to learn how you can fight back.

CO2: DEFORESTATIONnext >

Carbon dioxide is the largest contributor to global climate change. Burning fossil fuels (coal, gas, and oil) adds carbon dioxide to the atmosphere, and deforestation diminishes the ability of "natural sinks" to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. See Resilient Habitats to learn how you can fight back.

Methane is emitted from natural gas systems and the raising of livestock, and pound for pound has 21 times the global warming potential of carbon dioxide See Beyond Natural Gas to learn how you can fight back.
