Climate change is the defining issue of our day. It is a global problem that demands global action, while we still have time to make a difference. We believe that it is imperative to address climate change, as it would uniquely undermine the Foundation’s priorities—improving the lives of children and families while protecting the earth’s natural systems for future generations.

We know that mitigation efforts over the next 20 to 30 years can play a significant role in stabilizing our climate and protecting the earth’s capacity to support life. Measurable progress is already being made, giving us hope that it is not too late to avoid potentially disastrous human-caused climate change.
