What is going on?
With every year that passes by, humanity's impact on the world's natural systems is becoming increasingly apparent:
"Warming of the climate system is unequivocal, and since the 1950s, many of the observed changes are unprecedented over decades to millennia. The atmosphere and ocean have warmed, the amounts of snow and ice have diminished, and sea level has risen."
Climate Change 2014 Synthesis Report,
By the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)
“Climate change is no longer some far-off problem. It is happening here. It is happening now.”
Barack Obama, at the GLACIER Conference 2015
Switzerland is not spared from the effects of climate change, as can be observed from the decreasing snow cover of the Alps.
You will probably agree with us if we say these are depressing facts. However, there is good news!
Just by making different choices in your everday life, it is possible to significantly reduce your environmental impact. It's simple and will make you feel good!
