The inconvenient truth and you

Topics: ,
This week, as Al Gore and his blockbuster documentary, ‘An Inconvenient Truth’, arrive in Europe, climate change is again making waves around the world. The film, essentially a multimedia, whistle-stop tour of the likely causes and impacts of climate change, concludes that the issue is no longer simply an environmental or political issue. Rather, Gore says, it is the biggest single challenge facing our global civilization. So what can we do?

“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.

For extensive background information on climate change and advice on what you can do to make a difference, please visit the EEA Climate Change website:
