OUR WORK

Global warming is occurring at a pace faster than previously predicted. Human influence on the climate system is increasingly evident. Our actions are creating irreversible impacts on our planet. We are already witnesses to catastrophic events of unpredictable weather patterns which are causing unprecedented cyclone, forest fires, droughts & famines. We are also witness to tectonic shifts in planetary conditions like melting glaciers, polar ice caps and ocean acidification.

ACTIIVITIES CAUSING CLIMATE CHANGE


Fossil

Fuel Consumption

The primary source of man-made greenhouse gas emissions is burning of fossil fuels. Consumption of fossil fuel releases carbon content trapped in fuel that has developed over million of years.

Deforestation & Land

Use Change

The primary source of man-made greenhouse gas emissions is burning of fossil fuels. Consumption of fossil fuel releases carbon content trapped in fuel that has developed over million of years.

Livestock Farming & Agriculture

Livestock farming, especially cattle rearing, is the cause of natural release of GHG emissions. These emission sources are primarily from feed production & processing, digestion and manure decomposition.

Manufacturing

Material Emissions

The primary source of man-made greenhouse gas emissions is burning of fossil fuels. Consumption of fossil fuel releases carbon content trapped in fuel that has developed over million of years.

HOW DOES CLIMATE CHANGE AFFECT YOU?


Extreme

Climate

Increasing droughts, extreme heat waves, unprecedented rainfall causing floods, increasing cyclones and melting glaciers - An ever increasing number of occurrences of extreme climatic events are taking place and we must take note.

Ocean

Acidification

Our oceans act as natural carbon sinks that absorb huge amounts of carbon dioxide, and prevent CO2 from reaching the atmosphere. Increasing water temperatures and CO2 concentrations are making our oceans more acidic.

Resource

Depeletion

Over-population and industrialization have resulted in the scarcity of natural resources through over-exploitation of fuel, food and water resources. Our consumption pattern has exceeded nature's capacity to replenish resources.

Climate

Refugees

The number of climate refugees are on the rise. Sudden climatic changes adversely affect people's lives and living conditions, which has caused them to leave their homes, either temporarily or permanently, and move within their country or abroad.

HOW TO GET INVOLVED


Do you recognise the seriousness of climate change and want to take action? Join the Captain Planet’s #ClimateClub and volunteer for climate action activities. Mobilise people to take action too and contribute their efforts towards offsetting or alleviating climate change.

At Carbon Initiative Forum, we are involved with climate change through:

CLIMATE ACTION


We facilitate awareness and discussions on climate change through people mobilisation and vocalisation. Through this movement, we’re striving to make climate education compulsory in the Indian education system. Show your support and sign our petition on www.change.org.

Sign petition

CLIMATE DISCUSSIONS


We provide a platform for awareness and discussion on everything climate change to inform and encourage dialogue for understanding and action. Get clued in and learn from experts in the field through various in-person or digital events.


CLIMATE CLUB


Let us not forget that all of us are in an inseparable partnership with the planet. We ought to play a bigger role as well as be more assertive in how it is protected. The smallest changes will make a tremendous difference. Join Captain Planet’s Climate Club and step up your role as an active planeteer!
