COEJL Global Climate Change Campaigns

Global greenhouse gas emissions are projected to increase average temperatures by 2.5 to 10.4 degrees Fahrenheit in this century—bringing rising seas, major weather and agricultural disruptions, environmental refugees, migrating diseases, and other dangers which most harm the planet’s poor and vulnerable. The United States, with less than five percent of the world’s population, contributes 25% of these emissions. Addressing climate change is a clear matter of justice among the various nations of the world and between our and future generations.
