The Earth needs serious help – not 5% token carbon reductions.
Already the Arctic is melting from too much carbon in the air – we must not only slow the growth of CO2 in the atmosphere – we have to actually reduce it.
This means committing ourselves to drastic carbon reductions – there is no other way. Humans cannot negotiate with an increasingly chaotic climate – it will not listen.
Al Gore has called for 100% renewable energy by 2020 as the only way to avoid climate catastrophe. We repeat this call.
In the 1960s, the US committed itself to putting a human on the moon by the end of the decade. A huge percentage of the national economy was channelled towards this end, and they achieved the “impossible”.
Likewise, we need to build a movement that says to our government: “We are ready to set ourselves an even more important challenge for the next decade.”
“We demand an economy that is channelled towards this essential task.”
“We demand a responsible government that will look after not only this generation, but generations to come.”
Join the thousands on June 13 th calling for this new vision – calling for an uncompromising policy of protection for the Earth and all its inhabitants.
100% renewables by 2020! Green jobs – no job cuts! A strong international agreement with climate justice for all! Climate policies that make the big polluters pay!
