We are currently facing a climate and ecological emergency. It is imperative that all levels of government, business and the community take action to drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions to limit global temperature rise to below 1.5 Degrees Celsius. The Climate Action campaign is an initiative by SCEC focused on broadening Sunshine Coast residents’ awareness of climate change issues, and encouraging them to take action.
There is consensus in the scientific community that as a result of our increasing greenhouse gas emissions (carbon dioxide, methane and other gases), we are on track to cause catastrophic changes in the earth's climate that will affect generations across all nations with the effects being most catastrophic for communities who have contributed the least amount of emissions. We are already experiencing these effects today with increased bushfires, temperatures and a seasonal changes.
