Climate is usually defined as the 'average weather' in a place. It includes patterns of temperature, precipitation (rain or snow), humidity, wind and seasons. Climate patterns play a fundamental role in shaping natural ecosystems, and the human economies and cultures that depend on them. But the climate we’ve come to expect is not what it used to be, because the past is no longer a reliable predictor of the future. Our climate is rapidly changing with disruptive impacts, and that change is progressing faster than any seen in the last 2,000 years.Scientists have closed the case: Human activity is causing the Earth to get hotter. To learn more, check out this video by one of our favorite scientists, Bill Nye.
As Bill Nye points out in the video above, we [humans] are part of the PROBLEM. The good news...we can be part of the SOLUTION. Our mission at Warming World is simple: to create a global coalition of climate change champions who bring awareness about the problem and act together to be a part of the solution.
There are many people that have dedicated their time and even life to learn, document and share discovered facts and impacts around climate change. However, this information is not being proliferated, consumed and prioritized for our immediate attention. Facebook alone has over one billion users, yet videos that educate the impact of climate change have only been seen by a tiny percent of this population. Warming World is using technology and the power of the crowd to virally distribute climate change information to as many people as possible. Your individual voice will allow others to learn about climate change and join the mission to do something about it.
Your individual act to do your part can be as simple as reducing your carbon footprint, by recycling, adopting clean energies, eating local, eating less meat, carpooling with a colleague, and so on. Warming World informs and promotes acts of change like these that can be driven individually through the community to create a domino effect towards sustainability. Warming World promotes sustainable acts at the individual level all the way to the corporate and political level.
Giving Warming World permission to post to your Twitter or Facebook is safe and this mechanism of providing 3rd party access is widely adopted by many applications you use every day. You can always revoke our access to any of your applications at any given point in time.
By providing access to post on your behalf, we do the work of sharing for you. We understand life can get in the way of sharing even though you are passionate about the cause. Additionally, by creating a global coordination of posts, we are able to be a lot more effective in a message’s reach so that it can go viral. We allow you to opt-out of sharing each post before it goes out.
We work with the broader community of advocates, influencers, non-profits, and specialists to source meaningful content that brings awareness to climate change or includes actionable steps towards reducing our carbon footprint. Here are some examples of content we can use as a reference:
Our long term goal is to build the largest global community of climate change champions, who bring climate change related awareness by distributing high-impact facts and news to as many people possible. We hope this will enable change that leads to the sustainability of climate change. In the words of Ghandi, 'Be the change you wish to see in the world.'
#WarmingWorld is a non-partisan global coalition of individuals who use their social voices to make the world aware of climate change. Learn more
