We're fighting for our Future
We can’t turn our backs on the facts:
The earth is getting warmer… fast. In fact, the past four years were the hottest ever on record. We must support the UN’s climate action priorities and join the global fight against climate change.
Documentary Screening From Paris to Pittsburgh
We finished the UN’s 74th celebration at the University Club with a special UCSB guest speaker Rose Strauss
who enthusiastically invited us to help save our Environment. Following the film "Paris to Pittsburgh” a lively discussion was led by Nancy and Dr. Karl Hutterer and we all had the opportunity to sign the Paris Agreement.
Thanks for all your help and for joining us.
- Barbara Gaughen-Muller, President.
The numbers don't lie.
We’ve already warmed the Earth by 1°C, and are on track to reach more than 3°C of warming unless we make significant changes. Already, glaciers are melting, sea levels are rising, heat waves are intensifying, and weather is becoming more unpredictable and extreme — so 3° could mean huge problems.
When Washington stands back, we step up.
While the White House has stepped back from the climate crisis governors are stepping in. Data indicates that all countries need to triple their commitments made under the Paris Agreement if we are to limit climate change from causing even greater global catastrophe. That’s why passionate citizens and forward thinking state leaders are taking matters into their own hands.
“Today, I am asking for your help in sounding the alarm and highlighting the solutions.”
At the 2019 Global Engagement Summit, UN Secretary-General António Guterres issued a call-to-action for UNA-USA members and citizens of the world: We must all be local leaders in the fight against climate change. Learn more about the UN’s work on climate.
