Time to Wake Up to the Climate Emergency - says Christina Figueres
Extinction Rebellion and student climate strike movement civil disobedience actions receive support from Christiana Figueres to wake us up to the climate emergency.
Former Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Christiana Figueres, is an important architect of the Paris Agreement negotiated in 2015. She has released a video statement on the importance of civil disobedience and protests by #ExtinctionRebellion and the Student #climatestrike in waking us up to the #climateemergency and need for political action on climate change.
Australian politicians and #climateelection candidates should all watch, take note, and undertake ambitious action if elected. There is no more time for delay or denial.
Here in Australia the student climate strike has 3 simple basic demands:
* Stop Adani coal mine
* No new coal or gas projects
* 100 percent renewables by 2030 target
Anything less than this does not respect the science and the threat to society from climate breakdown.
