The Climate Emergency: Why We Are Meeting
2019 was the hottest year on record. An area the size of Britain has been destroyed by the Australian bush-fires. A quarter of a million people have been forced to evacuate their homes. A billion animals have been killed.
Half of global warming since the Industrial Revolution has happened in the last 25 years. Carbon emissions are accelerating, not reducing.
The reason is simple. The system is hard-wired for profit and growth. Capitalism doubles the size of the world economy every quarter century – an economy powered by fossil fuel.
This is the greatest crisis in human history. The survival of the existing planetary eco-system and the human societies based upon it are at stake.
Climate strikes and XR protests have kick-started a global movement for change. But we need much more to save humanity and the planet.
Come and debate the way forward. Join the Mutineers at the Climate Forum.
