Thanks for all you do,
Green Seniors is based on the belief that there are thousands of people in the world who care about the natural environment, have some time to spare, and want to do something to try and fix the problems that we have created.
We know that global warming is real; it has been made far worse by greenhouse gases building up in Earth's atmosphere; and the burning of fossil fuels, the loss of our forests and many other human activities are causing this. Carbon dioxide, the main greenhouse gas, stays in the atmosphere for up to 200 years. Right now the oceans and soil are absorbing much of the excess carbon, but in a couple of decades these "sinks" will be full, and we will still be pumping ever more carbon into the atmosphere. Other gases like methane and nitrous oxide are making the problem even worse, and it will get worse...
The people of Earth must do everything they can, as soon as possible, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and help nature to protect us from the consequences. Every nation. Every state or city. Every village. Every home. Every person.
