We must act faster than before—the clock is ticking
Climate change is already happening. Global temperatures have risen by 1°C. If we continue to emit as much as we do today, it will be incredibly difficult for the world to become carbon neutral in 7 years in order to limit global warming to 1.5 °C (IPCC recommendation). At 1.5°C our ecosystem could remain largely in balance, but we are running out of time.
The future without carbon neutrality
If we don’t manage to reduce our carbon emissions, the earth will warm up more than 4°C by 2100. Such world would be difficult to recognize:
- Cities like London, New York and Mumbai will be flooded
- Entire ecosystems will be lost; half of animal and plant species and coral reefs will be completely extinct
- There will be record-breaking summer temperatures of over 50°C in Europe
- We will see an increase in dangerous tipping points; large parts of the world will become uninhabitable
What can we do?
ForTomorrow was founded in 2019 as a non-profit organization. We want to enable everyone to live a carbon neutral lifestyle. Together, we can transform Europe into the first carbon neutral continent. Each EU citizen emits an average of 9 tonnes of CO2 per year. We help you reduce your carbon emission to less than 1 ton in the long-term. Meanwhile we offset the rest for you. If we manage to reduce the worldwide carbon emissions year by year, we will have a bit more time than the 7 years mentioned earlier. We can then safely reach the 1.5°C goal with carbon neutrality in 2040. But we must act faster.
