New Movement Arises To Force Action On Climate Change

| Podcast

The United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a conservative body, estimates that humans have twelve years to take effective action to mitigate and adapt to climate change. Given the lack of response by most governments to do what is necessary, a new movement has arisen in the United Kingdom targeting the House of Parliament to force significant policy changes. Called the Extinction Rebellion, this movement needs to go global. We spoke with Marijn Van de Geer about what the Extinction Rebellion is doing, their model of change and how to get involved.

    I’m a member of Extinction Rebellion here in the USA. The group has only recently formed here while it’s been well underway in the UK awhile now, just getting ramped up for worldwide climate protests and other actions. If you want a vehicle to act up against the powers that be who are destroying all life on earth, join Extinction Rebellion. Glad to see it being discussed here finally.
