Project Report | Aug 9, 2021
Code red for humanity - no time to waste!

By The Iracambi Team | Forest Restorers

IPCC 2021 Report
IPCC 2021 Report

Dear donors,

Today's IPCC report is a Monday morning wake up call.

UN Secretary General, Antonio Gutierrez, describes it as "code red for humanity."

The planet is desperately trying to get our attention, and it’s time to step up.  All of us have experienced the profoundly unsettling effects of the pandemic. All of us have been forced, in one way or another, to adapt our lifestyles. 

And, long before we're through the covid nightmare, we’re faced with a crisis that is even more profound. A climate crisis of wildfire, flooding, rising sea levels and unpredictable and violent weather events. The science is irrefutable. If we don't get real, it will be too late. 

But the good news is that, if we do get real, if we get started right here and right now, we can still do a lot to fix it.

There's no time to waste. 

We know what we need to do: Figure out our carbon footprint and take steps to reduce it. Walk more, drive less. Eat more plant- based foods and less meat. Turn down the thermostat. Buy less stuff, cut out single-use plastics, plant what we can where we can.

These past eighteen months have shown us that we, the people of the earth, are resilient. Covid 19 forced us all to stop, think, and adapt. To understand that we can’t go back to the same old, same old.

The only way through Hell is to move forward. And this is our chance. All of us doing what we can to restore the planet.  

And as the planting season appoaches, we want to thank you, dear donors, for doing your part. Like our hummingbird. 

Together we're restoring the rainforest. As the young trees grow they improve air quality, help replenish the aquifers, absorb greenhouse gases, and generate oxygen. Moving the planet, one tree at a time, from code red towards code green. 

So that everyone, everywhere will breathe a little more easily.

With much love and appreciation
