About Cool the Climate!

We believe in cooling the climate for the sake of all Earthlings. According to climate scientists, the safe level of atmospheric CO2 (the cause of global warming) is 350 parts per million (ppm). However, due to human activities, the amount of carbon in the air is rising fast – see the effects here.


Did you know…

Two countries, Bhutan and Suriname, are cooling the climate right now through old school technology (trees and jungle) – they’re CHOOSING to develop responsibly. Most of humanity may need a mix of old and new technology, but these small countries offer BIG hope for us as individuals, communities, businesses, nations, and the World!
