Global warming has potentially devastating consequences for birds, other wildlife, and the environment, as well as public health and economic prosperity. Fortunately, the world’s scientists have made it clear that people and governments have it within their power to curb global warming, but that time is running short. Humans caused the problem, and it’s up to humans to fix it. There is reason for optimism if we listen to the warning and heed the call to action. The report confirms that many of the technologies we need to address the problem already exist and simply need to be deployed in a serious way. The U.S. can start filling the scientists’ prescription by rapidly adopting emissions caps, renewable electricity standards, energy conservation measures, and improving fuel efficiency. Audubon is activating the entire Audubon network, from our national and state offices to our chapters and activists.
