“Climate change is real, it is the defining issue of our time and we are at a defining moment where urgent action is required.”

Climate Change is often politicised or used to create division within the community.

Paying.Green’s primary objective is to unify communities and is therefore non-activist. We do however believe that the power and process of science is important for all of us. The following well-known organisations provide valued and measured information on climate change matters.

In a sea of different voices, science is our universal language.

UN’s Position on Climate Change

Key Take Outs:

Climate Change is the defining issue of our time and we are at a defining moment.

From shifting weather patterns that threaten food production, to rising sea levels that increase the risk of catastrophic flooding, the impacts of climate change are global in scope and unprecedented in scale.

Without drastic action today, adapting to these impacts in the future will be more difficult and costly.

Nasa: Link to 18 Scientific Associations Making Clear Statements of Climate Change

Key Take Outs:

Scientific Consensus: Earth’s Climate is Warming

Multiple studies published in peer-reviewed scientific journals show that 97 percent or more of actively publishing climate scientists agree: Climate-warming trends over the past century are extremely likely due to human activities.

In addition, most of the leading scientific organizations worldwide have issued public statements endorsing this position.

U.S. Global Change Research Program

Key Take Outs:

13 U.S. government departments and agencies (2018)

“Earth’s climate is now changing faster than at any point in the history of modern civilization, primarily as a result of human activities.

CSIRO and the Bureau of Meteorology

Key Take Outs:

CSIRO, The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation is an Australian federal government agency responsible for scientific research. CSIRO works with leading organisations around the world. Key take outs: Climate change is real. Our observations clearly demonstrate that climate change is real. CSIRO and the Bureau of Meteorology will continue to provide observations and research so that Australia’s responses are underpinned by science of the highest quality.

It is very likely that human activities have caused most of the global warming observed since 1950. There is greater than 90% certainty that increases in greenhouse gas emissions have caused most of the global warming since the mid-20th century. International research shows that it is extremely unlikely that the observed warming could be explained by natural causes alone. Evidence of human influence has been detected in ocean warming, sea-level rise, continental-average temperatures, temperature extremes and wind patterns.

SSA Statement on Climate Change and the Urgent Need for Action

Key Take Outs:

While the precise future costs of climate change are uncertain, they are expected to be considerable.

We are currently estimated to be on a path towards 3 °C warming since industrialisation, even after accounting for commitments at the 2015 Paris Agreement, when even 1.5 °C warming poses a serious danger to food security, water supply, biodiversity, and beyond.

The slower the efforts to mitigate climate change, the stronger the effects will be. Given that the future cost of climate change is likely to be very large, compared to the costs of taking action to address it, the rational approach to this problem is to take strong climate action now.

Intergovernmental Bodies: The National Academies of Science Engineering Medicine

Key Take Outs:

Climate change is happening today. Scientists have known for some time, from multiple lines of evidence, that humans are changing Earth’s climate, primarily through greenhouse gas emissions.

The evidence is clear and compelling. Earth’s atmosphere and oceans are warming, the magnitude and frequency of extreme climate and weather events are increasing, and sea level is rising along our coasts.

Climate change is increasingly affecting people’s lives. It is having significant effects on infrastructure, agriculture, fisheries, public health, and the ecosystems that support society. It is also changing the environment in ways that affect the distribution, diversity, and long-term survival of species of plants, animals, and other forms of life on Earth

IPCC: Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change

Key Take Outs:

The warming of the climate system is unequivocal.

Most of the observed increase in global average temperatures since the mid-20th century is very likely due to the observed increase in anthropogenic greenhouse gas concentrations.

Joint science academies’ statement: Global response to climate change

Key Take Outs:

Climate change is real. There will always be uncertainty in understanding a system as complex as the world’s climate. However, there is now strong evidence that significant global warming is occurring.

‘We urge all nations, in the line with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) principles, to take prompt action to reduce the causes of climate change, adapt to its impacts and ensure that the issue is included in all relevant national and international strategies. As national science academies, we commit to working with governments to help develop and implement the national and international response to the challenge of climate change’.
