People on march for Extinction Rebellion

The Isle of Wight branch of Extinction Rebellion – the group protesting against “climate breakdown, biodiversity loss, and the risk of social and ecological collapse” – is calling on all those who attended the three marches on the Island to get in touch. 

A spokesperson told OnTheWight,

“Wildfires are ripping across the arctic. Ice is melting at speeds never thought possible.

“Deadly heatwaves are crippling countries around the world. Scientists express their panic daily.”

A joining of forces “happening right now”
The spokesperson has asked that those who have attended the marches on the Island, who or those that are involved in environmental protection on the Island, to sign up to their newsletter to ensure they don’t miss out on news of upcoming events.

They say,

“There is a joining of forces happening right now to strengthen the effort to halt pollution and keep global heating to 1.5 degrees as recommended by the IPCC.”

Adding,

“Time is running out and we owe this to future generations to act now.”

Staying informed about our poor pulling power is greatly assisted by The Climate Action Tracker (CAT link to follow), an independent scientific analysis produced by three research organisations tracking climate action since 2009, tracking progress towards the globally agreed aim of holding warming well below 2°C, and pursuing efforts to limit warming to 1.5°C. We are already above 1 degree, already seeing the increasingly huge cost of… Read more »
