The inconvenient truth and you
“Climate change is already affecting many aspects of human society. Farmers, holidaymakers and insurers, to name but a few, are already feeling the impact,” says Professor Jacqueline McGlade, executive director of the European Environment Agency in Copenhagen.
“However, climate change is one of the few global issues that all of us can do something about. In fact, action on an individual basis is what will turn the tide. As with any complex issue, knowledge is power. The EEA provides a wealth of information for citizens on climate change including simple ways to take positive action,” Professor Jacqueline says.
