Climate scientists have warned us again and again during the last weeks: If the international community does not take robust action now, the famous two-degree target will be unattainable. If the average global temperature raises more than two degrees, this will have uncontrollable consequences.
However, governments alone won’t save the planet. The Warsaw UN Climate Change Conference showed once again how difficult it is to agree on political measures to be taken.
But we can take action already today and thus contribute to climate protection. We can take responsibility by keeping our own climate-damaging emissions as low as possible. We can also delete as many CO2 allowances as possible so that they cannot be used anymore by anyone else.
With this year’s Advent Calendar, TheCompensators* want to share some wonderful impressions of nature’s beauty and show what is at stake. All of the species in the pictures are in danger of losing their habitat as a consequence of climate change. We think they deserve our protection and immediate action.
We will therefore delete pollution permits for each day until Christmas: On December 1st we will delete one tonne, on December 2nd we will delete 2 tonnes and so on … Until Christmas will have deleted 300 CO2 allowances.
