Climate change, a pressing global issue, is characterised by significant global temperature increases. Since 1850, Earth's temperature has risen by approximately 0.11° per decade, but this has alarmingly accelerated to 0.36° per decade since 1982. With the global temperature having tripled, passionate climate change activists have hastened their mission to combat climate change. Today, climate change keynote speakers are hired to educate, inspire and mobilise action. They provide their expertise on environmental impacts, offer solutions and highlight the urgency of the climate crisis. Hire a climate change speaker today to foster a collective response towards a more sustainable and resilient future.

To protect our planet, we must take action – and quickly. Climate change poses a grave health threat, potentially causing an additional 250,000 deaths annually between 2030 and 2050 - widely due to the effect climate change has on nutrition, disease and heat stress. Hire a climate change guest speaker for 2024 events, to promote urgent action and prevent the devastating impact on global health.

What is Climate Change?

Climate change is a long-term alteration in Earth's temperatures and weather patterns. While natural factors like solar activity and volcanic eruptions can contribute, human activities since the 1800s, particularly burning fossil fuels like coal, oil and gas, are the primary drivers. These activities release greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and methane, creating a heat-trapping "blanket" around the planet, leading to temperature rises - with a record high of 37.55 GtCO₂ emitted in 2023. These emissions stem from various sources, including transportation, energy production, industrial processes, deforestation, agriculture, oil extraction and gas operations. Addressing climate change is critical due to its profound impact on the environment, human health, and the future of our planet.
