The Report Card Every Parent Should Read

Take 3 minutes and read our planet's report card-it's now a slideshow. Our kids may thank us.
Take 3 minutes and read our planet’s report card slideshow. Who knows? Maybe our kids will thank us.

If you have school-aged children, you know that it’s almost report card time. Report cards offer parents a snapshot of your child’s bright spots, but also spell-out those “areas of challenge.”   

Another important report card was quietly posted three years ago by the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). This fifth report card spelled out not if man-made climate change is here, but by how much.

Though most of us have yet to review Planet Earth’s report card – it’s now a readable slideshow – the positive news is that our world’s leaders, major corporations, U.S. federal, state and city governments, have all read the IPCC’s 5th climate report.

And they’re finally acting on it. Climate progress is accelerating. Read this important report card and learn what will be required to make our legacy be one of climate action, not denial.
