Climate change is one of the most pressing issues of our time. It affects everyone on the planet, and it requires collective action to mitigate its impacts and adapt to its consequences. Here are some frequently asked questions about climate change and what you can do to help.

Climate change is the long-term alteration of the Earth's climate system, including changes in temperature, precipitation, wind patterns, and extreme weather events. The main cause of climate change is the increase in greenhouse gases (GHGs) in the atmosphere, which trap heat and warm the planet. The most important GHG is carbon dioxide (CO2), which comes from burning fossil fuels, deforestation, and land use changes.
