To assimilate, document and present scientific data relating to climate change; including deforestation, disease, drought and global hunger.
To serve as an access-point for information to assist media and concerned parties to engage these topics and to encourage governments, public bodies and other institutions to introduce beneficial legislation and policies resulting in the subsequent mitigation of climate change and minimization of associated human, planetary and economic costs; also safeguarding water supplies, preserving forests, minimizing environmental degradation, improving health and alleviating global food shortages.

Cooling The Planet - Fast Acting Solutions
Our climate is changing. The summer floods of 2010 in Pakistan and fires across Russia already demonstrate society's vulnerability to the current global temperature rise of only 0.8°C.
The latest science tells us that even by meeting our most ambitious emissions reduction targets by 2020, greenhouse gas emissions will be 30% higher than that needed to keep within a 2°C temperature rise.
We now know that reducing CO2 alone will not affect cooling fast enough.
Even with a zero carbon global economy tomorrow, the existing CO2 in the atmosphere will continue to heat the planet for hundreds of years to come, meaning CO2 reductions on their own won't prevent runaway climate change.
We need to cool the planet fast, and here's why.
