Climate change – “We’re not done yet” say Greenpeace
Browse main article categories
I’ve just had an email from Greenpeace. They’ve worded it so well I’m going to take the liberty of copying and pasting it here; I’m just too pooped, disappointed and sad to try and even get my head around how I feel right now. I’m not even angry yet, I just feel let down and defeated.
Let me know what you think in the comments and what you think we should do to demand a change for our future.
No treaty to protect the climate
It’s been a long and heart-breaking night. The climate summit in Copenhagen has finished without a treaty to protect the climate. It’s not fair, not ambitious and not legally binding. It’s not done yet. Neither are we.
But first I need your help to spread the truth about the climate summit and help change the future.
Rise in global warming
World leaders left the climate summit last night without agreeing to the cuts in greenhouse gas emissions that science demands. That means we could see average global temperature rises above 2 degrees Centigrade and the worst impacts of climate change. They’re putting our future at risk.
We cannot let political leaders forsake the future of the planet.
Not fair, ambitious or legally binding
They will try to spin this as a success – together we can make sure that doesn’t happen and force them to finish the job they started. If the world knows that leaders have not finished the job, there is still a chance to get a treaty that is fair, ambitious and legally binding.
Together we can change the future.
PS. Next week we will need your help again to put pressure on the key countries that blocked progress at the climate summit, but for now please help spread the truth – job not done.
