Global warming is too serious for the world any longer to ignore its danger or split into opposing factions on it.

Combat Against Pollution
Air, land, and water pollution caused about 90 million premature deaths in the last decades, or 16% of all deaths worldwide. About 92% of all pollution-related mortality is seen in low-income and middle-income countries, with the poor, marginalized, and young hardest hit by the health effects of the contamination.
Combat Against Deforestation
The world’s forests are our last line of defence in mitigating climate change, stopping the extinction of wildlife and helping prevent the next pandemic. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the world’s forest cover has declined by almost 10 percent since 1990. This loss is due to several factors, including the expansion of agriculture, logging, and urbanization.
Combat Against Food Waste
Currently, at least one-third of all food produced worldwide is wasted. When food is wasted, all the energy and resources used to create that food are wasted too. This is a huge problem for people and the planet. To make matters worse, if that food ends up in landfills it produces methane – a greenhouse gas up to 86 times stronger than carbon dioxide. The evidence is becoming too hard to ignore. Food systems reform is critical to tackling the planetary crisis of climate change, nature and biodiversity loss and pollution and waste.
