It features many transferrable lessons for environmentalists primarily focusing on the climate crisis, especially those in the legal and policy sphere.
Book and Live Event: Nomad Century: How to Survive the Climate Upheaval
Regardless of what we do we have a tough century ahead of us: we have at least 2oc of warming locked in even if we stopped greenhouse gas emissions today. Temperatures in warmer countries will exceed this considerably and their citizens will have no choice but to migrate but migration fuels innovation I just given us almost all things society values today. Migration will be one of our greatest adaptations to global warming but there are many solutions we will have to use to get through this Nomad Century.

Nori podcast: Reversing Climate Change
We have all the technology we need to address climate but we don't have all the technology we are going to use.

Seeing the present
Climate is already impacting on us today; Carbon Brief are gathering all the studies on this interactive map to show you where and what these impacts are. Check to see what has happened in the places you have been and in the UK.
Warming is very different around the world; the UK has warmed by 1.5 degrees already, but not as much as France, or Iraq
Imagining our future
A look at sea level rise
Sea level will increase even if we stay at current temperatures but not the same everywhere, like all things in climate it isn't simple
Firetree has a map where you can look at the impact from different sea levels we may face in future
Carbon Brief: looking at 1.5 degrees and beyond
Interactive page to see the difference between a 1.5 and 2 degree world and why it is so important we keep global heating as low as we can.
The Climate Game: Can you reach net zero by 2050?
Understand the latest United Nations IPCC Reports
Understanding the United Nations climate change reports can be intimidating: each on is produced by hundreds of academics and experts examining thousands of research papers. But they are humanity's best effort at bringing all climate research together so understanding them gives you an amazing head start on productively addressing it and helping others do the same.
