Climate Change: “If we lose the Arctic, we lose the whole world” (w/ Guy McPherson) – YouTube

Published on May 3, 2019
Climate change may have already done enough damage to the earth that whatever we do now to stop it, may be too little, according to Guy McPherson.

Do you think he is right?

Is there time to fix the damaging climate change effects or has the Artic melted too much for us to stop it?

“If We Don’t Protect Nature We Can’t Protect Ourselves” Harrison Ford | Extinction Rebellion

Published on Jul 26, 2019
We are facing an emergency resulting from our toxic economic and political system. The way we relate to each other and to nature is destroying Earth’s capacity to sustain life. Unending economic growth and profits drawn from a planet with limited resources is causing gross inequality, poverty, mass misery, and species extinction. We are sold an illusion that consumption will bring purpose and happiness into our lives, yet this systemic consumption is threatening our very existence. It is based on unjust and unethical land use and ownership, unsustainable and increasing amounts of debt and enslavement of individuals. Power and money is concentrated in the hands of the few, while the masses struggle to simply survive. It is causing climate breakdown and biodiversity collapse. As Greta Thunberg has been saying since the ‘Declaration of Rebellion’ last October 31: ‘We can no longer save the world by playing by the rules. Because the rules have to be changed. Everything needs to change. And it has to start today. So, everyone out there, it is now time for civil disobedience. It is time to rebel.’ Edited by Lindford Lowe
