From the Ted Talk by Ilissa Ocko: The fastest way to slow climate change now

Unscramble the Blue Letters

For example, my colleagues and I found that we could slow down the rate of warming by as much as 30 pnrceet before mid-century. This would help communities and ecosystems adapt to a changing climate and hit the bakres on worsening etxrmee events, like wildfires in the Americas and Australia, and flooding in Europe and Asia. It would also help calen up our air, saving lives and crops, because methane contributes to ozone pollution. And because some of the people most vulnerable to the impacts of ctmiale cahgne are on the front lines of methane emissions. These solutions can also help rduece the inequity of climate change, for example, by job creation.

Original Text

For example, my colleagues and I found that we could slow down the rate of warming by as much as 30 percent before mid-century. This would help communities and ecosystems adapt to a changing climate and hit the brakes on worsening extreme events, like wildfires in the Americas and Australia, and flooding in Europe and Asia. It would also help clean up our air, saving lives and crops, because methane contributes to ozone pollution. And because some of the people most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change are on the front lines of methane emissions. These solutions can also help reduce the inequity of climate change, for example, by job creation.
