The Arthur Ross Terrace will be closed this morning, Tuesday, October 21, for a private cultural observance. You many observe smoke and/or fire coming from the Terrace at that time. The FDNY has been notified in advance, and all safety precautions are in place. The Terrace will reopen at 1 pm.

Is it Enough?

Everyday actions can reduce CO2 emissions and help curb climate change—is it enough?

When it comes to climate change, there is no easy solution. If we all work together, we can indeed reduce greenhouse gas emissions. But to really make a difference, it will take more than reducing personal consumption and adopting more efficient building methods. Communities and countries need to take bigger steps, including rethinking our policies and priorities. In particular we must transition from the use of fossil fuels to non-polluting forms of energy, as explained later in the exhibition.

Reducing CO2

It's too late to prevent some warming. But some experts think we can avoid the worst problems by reducing emissions.
