To protect our world from climate and ecological collapse, we need a new approach:
Our governments and institutions have failed to protect us. It's up to all of us to take matters into our own hands with a new approach that could actually work.
There is no more time for multi-decade solutions. To have a fighting chance, we need to reach zero emissions and drawdown as fast as possible: and in under a decade. This will take massive, sustained reductions in carbon emissions, and concerted collaborative action on a speed and scale we haven’t seen since the home front mobilization during World War II.
We can't solve a problem we refuse to look at. Climate change is outpacing official predictions, and accelerating due to feedback loops. Accepted targets and timelines that guided climate action for decades are based on bad data. The scary truth is if we don’t dramatically change course, Earth could become uninhabitable in a matter of decades.
A true solution to the climate and ecological emergency must account for all sources of greenhouse gases and overshoot. This means an all-hands-on-deck massive transformation of all sectors of our economy and society. In the process, we can build more resilient, compassionate, and just communities that work for everyone.
Join the Climate Emergency Movement
The Climate Emergency Movement is a network of people doing everything we can to prevent climate and ecological catastrophe. We ask our institutions and communities to respond to climate change and ecological destruction as an emergency. We demand the only response that makes sense: a massive, just mobilization of our cities and nation to protect humanity and the natural world.
