Quiz

Do you understand global warming? This quiz from the Guardian is a real challenge. What do you know about climate change? 

According to a new analysis, which country has the most ambitious pledge at COP21? In this Quiz, you will find the answers. Please share in your network.

This is climate change now

We’re just a few hours from Donald Trump being inaugurated as the president of the United States. What we’ve seen, is that regardless of what climate deniers (yes, deniers) like Trump may say about the science, the stark reality is that it is happening now.

Both scientists and people at the front lines of climate change – in low-lying Pacific islands where freshwater supplies are being contaminated by salt; in poor farming Cambodian communities, where “life is a high-wire act with no safety net” – agree: there is no ambiguity.

We are no longer fighting to stop climate change, but fighting to stop a runaway catastrophe.

Action needed

Governments must step up and take action. But in the meantime, we must all do what we can. We’ve heard people fighting climate change all around the world give their advice for what individuals can do, and most of them said similar things: become active on the issue, make your views known to politicians, and become a climate voter.

China

Exactly what the Trump administration means for the world is not yet clear, but even if the Paris Agreement is weakened – even if the work is undone – not all hope is lost. There are signs that China might take a lead on climate change action, and investment in renewable energy around the globe seems unstoppable now.

India

India is a society undergoing enormous changes. Between now and 2040, the population of its cities will swell by an estimated 315m people – roughly the current population of the US. Over the next years, the estimated 240m Indians who currently lack access to electricity will be connected to the grid.

  • The Indian government has started paying rebates to manufacturers who can produce more energy efficient 40-watt fans to reduce the drain during the nation’s sweltering summers.
  • Hundreds of thousands of high rises will spring up across Indian cities in the next 15 years. Building them to capture natural sunlight will reduce dependence on electric light.
