    2020: a critical year for the climate crisis

    This year began with sobering news:

    Bushfires in Australia, supercharged by record-breaking heat and drought, have scorched more than 10.7 million hectares – that’s larger than the devastating Amazon fires of 2019, and more than 80 times larger than last year’s California wildfires.

    So, we begin this new year with our planet literally on fire.

    As terrifying as the news from Australia has been, we believe 2020 will be the year – and the beginning of a decade – that tells the story of how concerned individuals like yourself deepened your resolve to act and demand real solutions to the climate crisis.

    Will you be a part of that story? When you start a monthly gift today, you will help fuel our plans this year to mobilize millions across the world to press for bold climate solutions.

    Think of your monthly gift as a subscription to a world where our climate finally stops warming, and we protect the natural ecosystems vital to our own survival – and the survival of all living things.

    At the beginning of this fateful decade, we need you now more than ever.
