What's in it for me? Learn about what's happening to your planet.

Climate change may completely destroy the world as we know it. If we keep polluting the earth at our current rates, we could face massive social, economic and ecological disaster.

So why are we doing this? Why do industries and corporations continue to pollute, even though the scientific community agrees that such behavior is destructive? And how can certain politicians and people deny that climate change is happening, when the evidence for it is so clear?

In these blinks, you'll hear how the activities of certain groups, particularly the fossil fuel industry, are causing global temperatures to rise, and why such groups aren’t interested in changing their methods. You'll also learn about the movements that are working to curb climate change, and what you can do to help.

In the following blinks, you'll also discover:

  • why efforts by the United Nations to fight climate change have been less than helpful;
  • how a volcanic eruption sparked an idea to combat an increase in global temperatures; and
  • why a powerful, global movement for renewable energy started in a small English town.
