Global Warming Global Warming

Global warming is the single biggest threat to wildlife today.

Scientists have told us that we must reduce global warming pollution by 80% by 2050 to avoid the worst impacts of global warming. They have set the goal, now we have to set the pace. We can get there by reducing global warming pollution by 2% every year for the next 40 years.

National Wildlife Federation works to reach that goal by demanding climate change legislation that includes a cap-and-trade system and dedicated funding to address the impacts of global warming on America's natural resources. Visit the Climate Action Center today or read our report Investing in America's Natural Resources.

Everybody needs to be part of the 2% solution. Pledge to reduce your energy use by 2% per year and be part of the solution today!

Wildlife and global warming Help wildlife survive global warming
In its 2007 report, the International Panel on Climate Change stated that 20-30% of species worldwide are likely to be at increased risk of extinction if increases in average global temperatures exceed 2.2-4.0° F above current levels. This could happen by the end of the century if global warming pollution is not dramatically reduced.
