The nuts & bolts of climate change

The nuts & bolts of climate change

“Don’t listen to me. Listen to the science” – Greta Thunberg

“Don’t listen to me. Listen to the science” – Greta Thunberg

The story of climate change is full of drama, mystery, and intrigue. It begins billions of years ago, involves massive impacts from comets, continents smashing into one another, Earth’s wobbly orbit around the sun, and of course, people—heroes and villains and everyday people of all ages. Who knew what, when? What’s causing it today? Where’s the evidence? How will it affect us here in Aotearoa? And what’s been the reaction?

People have been trying to unravel the mysteries of climate change for more than 150 years. Their journeys from Antarctica to Siberia, the deepest oceans to the upper atmosphere, and the far more treacherous realms of power, corruption, and greed, are quietly embedded in this ‘nuts & bolts’ section of the website, told in four parts set out in the chapters below. Because Earth system are complex and interlinked, some sections are duplicated across several chapters. For example, changing ocean currents are evidence of climate change, contribute to the causes, and have a profound impacts.

This is your story, too. In the coming months under the menu ‘Nature based solutions‘ and ‘News’ we will feature the work being done to restore and protect native ecosystems that will help all Cantabrians to become climate-resilient.
