Climate change is one of the biggest problems facing humanity and life on Earth today, and one of the most fundamentally misunderstood scientific theories is evolution. You’ve probably heard about climate change and evolution in the news and on social media, but what are these concepts, and how do we know they are ‘real’? We’ve made the site to help you understand more about both of these concepts and answer some questions, such as:

  • How do we know the Earth is warming, and where does the data come from?
  • What are the implications of a rapidly changing climate?
  • What is evolution?
  • How do we know evolution took place, and where does the data come from?
  • Why is it important to understand climate change and evolution?
