Impact Insider: Global Warming

According to NASA, NOAA, and Copernicus, 2023 was a scorcher, clinching the title of the hottest year on record. Lets talk global warming.

April 30, 2024


With each passing year, the temperature keeps creeping up, leaving us sweating bullets and wondering if there’s an end in sight. It’s not just a hot streak—it’s a full-blown climate crisis, and we’re right in the middle of it.

So, let’s talk numbers. According to NASA, NOAA, and Copernicus, 2023 was a scorcher, clinching the title of the hottest year on record. And it’s not just a one-off event—this trend of rising temperatures shows no signs of slowing down. 

While many mention this season’s El Nino, the blame cannot be placed there. In the 8 years since the last storm cycle, we have been consistently pumping greenhouse gasses into our atmosphere, making for a much more hostile year. 

From heatwaves to wildfires, the signs are everywhere: our planet is on fire, and we’re the ones holding the matches.

So, how do we start cooling things down?

Carbon neutrality is a big step in the right direction. It’s all about balancing out CO2 emissions by offsetting or removing an equivalent amount from the atmosphere. That can mean reforestation, renewable energy projects, or even capturing methane.

At Karma Wallet, we’ve teamed up with to offer carbon offsets to our users, supporting impactful projects like reforesting elephant habitats in Africa.

Plus, you can access your shopping carbon footprint in the Karma Wallet web app, allowing you to track and offset your daily spending. While carbon neutrality is crucial in the fight against climate change, it’s just one piece of the puzzle. We need to pair it with sustainable practices and collective action to build a greener future.
