Avoiding extinction

Today's IPCC report tells us that we are at the tipping point for the climate. A dozen years left. A couple of months ago the Hot House Earth report talked of possible extinction of humans. This really is the brink of catastrophic climate change.

There must be no more debate.

Global carbon emissions continue to grow while here in the UK environmental activists are jailed and fracking is pushed through Parliament on its last day before the summer recess.

This year we have seen wildfires, melting poles, heatwaves across the northern hemisphere and torrential rainfalls. This is just the start. People have failed to take action so the planet is stepping in...

We need urgent concerted leadership by every country in the world, especially those in the west plus China and India.

We need non-violent direct action.

We need people to be brave.

We need action.
