Humanity is getting to the business end of the debate about climate change. The science is well and truly settled, the consequences through rising sea levels and adverse weather events and melting icecaps and glaciers is clearly evident and the right wing corporate strategy of confusion and obfuscation is looking desperate. Humanity is on the edge of a crisis and unless action is taken now Houston we will have a problem. There is no planet B.
The Paris climate talks start soon and this is the opportunity for every human who cares about mother earth to make a contribution. Right wing politicians like Stephen Harper need to be removed from office (well done Canada) and we need a new generation of leaders to start talking honestly about the problem, and about the change that each of us need to make with our lifestyles to address that problem.
I blogged earlier about young Green Renee Rose Annan’s attempt to get to Paris so that she could represent young people. Because they have the most to lose I think it is perfectly appropriate for them to be there, hell I am sure they are better placed to make the tough decisions than the current generation of leaders is. I am pleased to say that thanks to many generous donations including those from Standarnistas she is able to to get to Paris.
She has prepared this video:
The event she is talking about is the People’s Climate March. On November 28, 2015, the week before the Paris talks people will be mobilised throughout the world to persuade our leaders that they are expected to make the tough decisions that are urgently required.
The day of the marches in New Zealand is November 28, 2015. Be sure to be there.
