2018 was the hottest year in Italy for over two centuries and global warming will continue its inexorable march if we do nothing to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Our Earth is in bad shape, it has reached a degree of warming and it is as if it had a fever of 38. It is certain that it will soon reach 39 degrees (2 degrees of warming) and only if we act seriously today can we prevent its fever from rising further. If the situation worsens, we will reach 5 degrees of overheating. A disastrous and irreparable situation that will penalise our children and grandchildren.

When it comes to understanding the whys and wherefores of the climate, there is an infinite number of things to learn, but life only gives us a limited amount of time to do so.
