A climate science workshop series by Active Philanthropy: Episode 3

The last decade really stands out: For nine years in a row (2014-2022), we’ve seen the warmest years on record. However, temperatures do not change at the same pace everywhere – the Arctic, for example, is warming 2-3 times faster than the rest of the world.

Our virtual climate science workshop series, led by world-renowned climate scientist and science communicator Dr Twila Moon, takes you through everything you need to know about climate. Each of the 8 episodes is just 5 minutes long and packed with the key facts and figures.

Today’s episode explores the critical relationship between human activity and rising global temperatures and visualises what global warming really looks like. Understanding where all the emissions in our atmosphere, land and ocean systems come from is key to figuring out what each of us can do to reduce them.
