THIS EARTH HOUR, SHINE A LIGHT ON FORESTS

THIS EARTH HOUR

This Earth Hour will shine a light on forests and bring together three countries – Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia – in united action to protect forests and stop haze pollution.

FOREST & CLIMATE CHANGE

Tropical forests produce more than 40% of the world’s oxygen. Globally forests are the largest store of carbon behind oceans so it is no surprise that when we cut down or burn forests they release huge amounts of carbon emissions that contribute to climate change. During parts of September and October 2015 the average daily emissions from the forest fires in Indonesia were higher than emissions from the whole of the US – an economy 10 times the size of Indonesia. To #changeclimatechange, we need to shine a light on forests.
