Charities Environment

Over the next century, millions more people will experience increasing number of intense weather events - flooding, hurricanes, droughts, heat waves - with 30% of species at an increasing risk of extinction. Climate change is affecting and is effected by many parts of the global environment. The loss of half the world's forests is not only causing the destruction of habitats home to diverse species, but also accounts for over 15% of greenhouse gas emissions.
