Climate Change

Learn about the Nelson Tasman Climate Forum.

Although the climate changes as a result of natural processes and we have always experienced periods of extreme weather, the increase in greenhouse gases is generating changes in global, national and local climate at unprecedented rates.

No one knows for sure just how much the climate will change in the future, but we know there will be change, and it will have broad environmental, social, economic and cultural impacts. Addressing climate change is everyone’s responsibility.
