A groundbreaking climate study was just being released.

For the first time, a major study said that a 2°C temperature rise was the point beyond which the world would be irretrievably committed to disastrous changes.

Ominously, the study said: the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere after which the 2°C rise will become inevitable will be 400 parts per million(ppm).  The 2005 CO2 level was 379ppm.

The corporate media has failed us. For the last 20 years they have staged a fake debate: whether or not climate change even exists!

For 20 years, Common Dreams has reported the truth about climate change.

Earlier this week, Common Dreams reported: Planet Breaches 410ppm as Back-to-Back Protests Demand Trump Wake Up.

Tomorrow we will cover the People's Climate March. And we will join with the millions who haven't given up and are willing to fight for our future.

We intend to be here at least another 20 years.  But we won't survive unless our readers are still there for us. We depend on you to keep us moving forward.

Our critical Spring fundraising campaign is going very slowly. Can you make a donation today?
