Climate Emergency Event Wimborne 12 September 2019

press-release and graphics by Ecotainment! for Extinction Rebellion Wimborne

There’s now no doubt the climate has changed, we are entering a period of extreme weather and uncertainty. After the hottest June ever recorded wild-fires are raging across the globe from the Amazon to the Arctic where sea-ice is also disappearing at alarming rates*. The evidence suggests that this change is only just the beginning.

As species struggle to adapt the resultant bio-diversity loss leads to extinction. The United Nations is warning of food shortages (100 harvests) and societal collapse so how come this is not being pushed up the political agenda? Whilst our government seems paralysed by Brexit concerned citizens, including school children are self-organising to highlight concerns and find possible solutions.

Movements such as Fridays for the Future and Extinction Rebellion are asking for wholesale system change NOW to prepare us for what lies ahead. It seems that the current political and economic models have failed the Earth and it’s inhabitants by polluting our land, oceans and air. In short we have to act-now or face leaving a toxic inhospitable planet for future generations.

Two thirds of Britons agree the planet is in a state of Climate Emergency ** including the new Dorset Council and Corfe Mullen parish council. Join us on the 12th September to find-out how this strategy is working and what comes next. We have to keep the pressure on our local institutions whilst continuing to join-up actions across the globe. There is very little time left to make meaningful change we have to Act Now.
