Climate Week 2015
La Semana del Clima 2015
Sep 21, 2015
September 21-28 marks the 7th annual Climate Week in New York City. Climate Week 2015 aims to bring together an international group of leaders to discuss and promote a global movement in energy, technology, and business towards a more sustainable world. Events will be held throughout the week in NYC and online.
This week, we take an overall, big-picture look at how we really know that climate change is happening, and that our own emissions of greenhouse gases are a big part of the reason. Here are resources and analysis of climate change indicators, as well as additional graphics, videos and projections that help contextualize both the local and global impacts of climate change.
