CLIMATE EMERGENCY ATLAS WHAT’S HAPPENING-WHAT WE CAN DO
FOREWORD BY JAMIE MARGOLIN
The climate crisis is not an issue that can be overlooked. It is not something that will take care of itself down the road. It is the defining issue of our time, an existential threat that impacts everyone,
and intersects with and affects every other issue on this planet. That’s why it’s crucial that people have an accessible guide to the information about this crisis and what society, and they personally, can to do to tackle it.
与这个星球上的所有其他问题都有交叉和影响。这就是为什么人们有一个关于这场危机的信息，以及社会和他们个人可以做些什么来应对这场危机的无障碍指南是至关重要的。Climate Emergency Atlas is a great start for anyone looking to learn more about the climate crisis and how they can take action on it. Reading this book will help you become awakened on this issue and get motivated to learn more and take action.
It is the perfect guide for anyone who wants to learn about this existential threat and equip themselves with the tools to combat it.
对于任何想了解这一生存威胁并为自己配备打击工具的人来说，这是一本完美的指南。 What is the climate emergency?
All around the world, human activity is causing the emission of greenhouse gases—so called because they trap heat on Earth. This is known as global warming,
and it is affecting both the climate and life on our planet. To have any chance of halting the rise in temperature, and even more dramatic effects in the future, we need to act now.
它正在影响我们星球上的气候和生命。要想有任何机会阻止气温上升，甚至在未来阻止更剧烈的影响，我们需要现在就采取行动。 The carbon cycle Carbon is an element found in all living things. It flows in cycles through the atmosphere, the oceans, plants, animal life, and rocks.
Carbon dioxide (CO2) is exchanged between the air, the ocean, and the ecosystem through a variety of natural processes that balance each other out. Human activities have upset this balance, causing climate change and ocean acidification.
二氧化碳（CO2）通过各种相互平衡的自然过程在空气、海洋和生态系统之间交换。人类活动打破了这种平衡，导致气候变化和海洋酸化。 Road transportation
Cars and trucks rely on burning the gas and diesel that comes from oil, a fossil fuel. Together, road vehicles account for more than 10 percent of global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. After decades behind the wheel, the world’s driving habit is hard to break.
汽车和卡车依靠燃烧来自石油（一种化石燃料）的天然气和柴油。道路车辆总共占全球二氧化碳（CO2）排放量的10%以上。在驾驶几十年后，世界的驾驶习惯很难改变。 A fairer future?
As countries become wealthier, they produce more greenhouse gases (GHGs). Richer countries are also able to spend more money to protect themselves against the effects of climate change.
To tackle the climate emergency, richer countries must support the poorer, who are often the most likely to experience the worst effects of the climate crisis and have done the least to cause it.
