Join the 1,460,233 supporters of the Stop Global Warming Virtual March, and become part of the movement to demand our leaders freeze and reduce carbon dioxide emissions now. We are all contributors to global warming and we all need to be part of the solution.

The Stop Global Warming Virtual March is a non-political effort to declare that global warming is here now and it’s time to act.
This is a movement about change, as individuals, as a country, and as a global community.

Climate change is considered by many scientists to be the most serious threat facing the world today. The pollutants we pump into our atmosphere are changing its composition and preventing heat from escaping the earth’s surface. Today’s atmosphere contains 32 per cent more carbon dioxide, one of the main greenhouse gases, than at the start of the industrial era.

The result is climate change: altered long-term weather patterns. Global warming, a rise in the average global temperature, is one measure of climate change. And it has already begun – global average temperature has risen by almost 1 degree Celsius since 1900, and the northern hemisphere is substantially warmer than at any point during the past 1000 years. Burning fossil fuels such as coal, oil and gas is largely responsible for climate change. Deforestation and modern intensive farming methods also contribute to the problem. Solutions to climate change include phasing out coal plants, expanding renewable energy sources and public transit, and creating new efficiency standards for vehicles and buildings. Please join us and march.
