The first thing you can do about climate change is to take an interest in it - learn something!You may be 9 or 99 years old but the basics are easily grasped, even by busy people with little knowledge of science or time for study - you could try 'Climate Change in a Nutshell' below. The bottom line is that just about every expert who knows anything about the world's climate agrees that it is changing far too quickly and that humans are mainly responsible.
The global warming that causes real concern is a direct result of burning coal and other fossil fuels that release greenhouse gases into the air. The effects are becoming only too familiar and can be expected to continue - wildfires, floods, hurricanes, extreme heat waves, longer periods of drought, increase in tropical storms, not to mention the effect on wildlife and the environment.

iBerry is not qualified to debate the details of Climate Change science. Many other websites do this very well and we will link to them but we intend to focus on basic and Open Education by bringing together in one place information and links serving anyone wishing to find readily understandable material on various aspects of Climate Change.
IBerry on Climate Change is a project in the making. Further discussion and plans are ongoing and as always, we welcome comments and suggestions from our visitors. Anyone, anywhere who would like to comment, help us or simply register an interest, is welcome to contact us.

9 or 99? You can still learn about Climate Change!
Alarm bells ringing? - Maybe or maybe not but look at it this way. The science of climate change is complicated and the experts cannot be sure exactly how fast the changes will happen or exactly what the effects will be. But they are convinced that rapid and severe changes in the world's climate are on the way and that in a few years the damage that humans have inflicted on the planet may be impossible to reverse.
In modern life we trust the advice of experts in many things where specialist knowledge of details and procedures is necessary - medical advice is a good example. Let's show the same respect to climate change experts!
Climate Change in a Nutshell
