There’s a reason why we call it a “climate emergency”

The scientific evidence is overwhelming. We're seeing the effects of global warming all around us, from more frequent and intense heatwaves, droughts, and wildfires to rising sea levels and more severe storms. The data shows that greenhouse gas emissions are driving this rapid warming, and we're rapidly approaching the point of no return.

Make Sunsets is dedicated to using stratospheric aerosol injection (SAI) to fight climate change, but we can't do it alone. We need other climate policies and technologies to join forces with us for lasting impact.

International agreements

The Paris Agreement, adopted in 2015 by 196 countries, is a global effort to limit global warming to well below 3.6°F (2°C) above pre-industrial levels and pursue efforts to limit it to 2.7°F (1.5°C). Countries have committed to reducing their greenhouse gas emissions and regularly reporting on their progress.

Renewable energy

Governments, businesses, and individuals are investing in renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, and hydro power. This can reduce greenhouse gas emissions and decrease reliance on fossil fuels.

Energy efficiency

Improving energy efficiency in buildings, transportation, and industry can also help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Carbon pricing

Many governments are implementing carbon pricing policies, such as carbon taxes or cap-and-trade systems, which put a price on greenhouse gas emissions and encourage businesses to reduce their emissions.

Reforestation and afforestation

Planting trees and increasing forest cover can help to absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

Research and development

Entrepreneurs and researchers are working to develop new technologies and solutions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to the impacts of climate change.
