What will come after the hottest decade on record? With unprecedented heatwaves and an increasing number of extreme weather events during the past ten years, the message of 2021’s Earth Day could not be more urgent. As a manufacturer of environmental monitoring solutions, OTT HydroMet joins the movement and calls out the Earth Day Challenge.
In a recent press release, the World Meteorological Organization leaves no doubt that things are getting worse. Despite the COVID-19-related economic slowdown and the cooling effects of La Niña, 2020 was one of the three warmest years on record. Actions have to be taken, United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres said at the launch of WMO’s recent report on the State of Global Climate 2020, calling 2021 “the make it or break it year”.
Dramatic setting for 2021’s Earth Day
This particularly dramatic setting makes this year’s Earth Day special. Celebrated for the first time in 1970, Earth Day is a global, annual event held on April 22nd to demonstrate support for environmental protection. This event includes a wide range of activities every year to build awareness and drive actions for environmental stewardship.
Following that spirit, OTT HydroMet calls out the Earth Day Challenge. All associates are invited to participate regarding their individual possibilities and to contribute to saving energy, planting trees, or supporting local science projects. To prove that really everybody can do something to treat the Earth with more care, the Earth Day Challenge is open to all people around the world.
