Climate Emergency

What is Climate Change?

Climate change is the long-term shift in average weather patterns across the world. Since the mid-1800s, humans have contributed to releasing carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the air. This causes global temperatures to rise, resulting in long-term changes to the climate.

Climate change affects everybody and is damaging not only to our planet but also to our health and wellbeing.

Well Aware has put together a list of useful links to find out more about climate change, ranging from calculating your own carbon footprint to finding out what our local councils are doing to combat climate change. You can also visit our ‘Sustainable Living‘ resource page here to find out more.

Please check back here for regular news items and updates on what we are doing here at TCF to do our bit for the environment!
