The Impact of Climate Change
Between 1883-2013, the sea level has steadily risen at 0.06 inches per year. Some small islands in the Pacific are already disappearing.
Storms & Hurricanes
Dangerous storms and hurricanes have already doubled in the past year.
Fires & Droughts
Between 2011-2020, there were 62,805 wildfires in the U.S. In 2020, 58,950 wildfires burned 10.1 million acres. 40% of fires were in California.
8 of the 10 hottest years on record have occurred since 1998. This has resulted in the melting of Arctic ice and Greenland glaciers, causing irreversible impacts on sea level and ocean currents. The addition of freshwater from ice to the ocean’s saltwater has disrupted the Gulf Stream currents creating unpredictable weather patterns. This is expected to result in longer and colder winters in Europe. Globally, 2020 was the second hottest year on record.
This summer, crushing heat waves cooked shellfish alive by the millions in the Pacific Northwest and Canada. North America has lost 3 billion birds since 1970.
The world cannot continue in this direction. The leading cause of biodiversity loss is deforestation, and the leading cause of deforestation is animal agriculture. We need to try a more sustainable and plant-based diet to secure the future of humanity.
The SEE program is centered around creating awareness of the adverse effects of animal agriculture on the climate. Utilizing the power of social media and television, SEE will launch regular and frequent programs and public service announcements to further our cause. Join our movement and spread the word. The opportunity to make a difference is in your hands!
