Climate change: facts and figures •  •  •  •  •  • 

Climate change is a dynamic and natural process. exponential demographic growth => Net growth/year: + 60 millions / year More human activity => more Greenhouse gas emissions Volume of GHG emissions is impacting greenhouse effect and global warming global warming is impacting the rate of climate change. Paul R. Ehrlich: “a free choice is leading the civilisation to end. We need urgently global Regulations to be respected” •  Greenland melting: 2x Alps Glaciers every year •  http://youtu.be/9YWX7ChjtxY

Impact of climate change: huge financial costs •  •  •  •  •  • 

damages on infrastructure => massive infrastructures investments requirements => costs & taxes massive increase => military expenses (means add. pollution) => energy and food supply => immigration channeling

Local solutions: what can we do at our level? 1.  2.  3.  4.  5.  6.  7.  8. 

Set up extra financial risk rating in your business Thing about energy use purchase more sustainable eat more organic & local invest more responsible & sustainable (5 years with 5% yield?) decrease chemical impact on a daily level use and promote democratic structures support diversity
