If you can’t scientifically disprove that the atmosphere contains CO2; that atmospheric CO2 raises global temperature; that pumping more CO2 into the atmosphere will increase this effect; and anthropogenic activities have led to increased CO2 emissions, then you’re in agreement with the vast majority of world’s scientists who believe we’re f*cking up the environment to the extent that we are causing – before our very eyes – catastrophes, which will only get worse.
You might be part of the tiny percentage of people who believe what petrochemical companies have paid for you to believe, mainly that it is nothing to worry about or part of some crazy world government conspiracy. (If it is, it isn’t a very good one.)
So for UK readers, I just wanted to mention the Big Climate Connection, which hopes, with the help of UK citizens, to pressure our governments into doing something about it.
The Stop Climate Chaos Coalition is calling for people across the UK to connect with others in their communities and lobby their MPs on climate change on 5th-6th November.
With supporters coming together in their communities from more than 100 organisations for the Big Climate Connection, we’ll show MPs that people from all walks of life – from environment to development groups, from unions to local community and health groups – are calling for action on climate change.
You can follow the debate, or even join it, here.
