United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres speaks out, the latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report “a litany of broken climate promises” showing the world is “on a fast track to climate disaster.” 4th April 2022
The verdict is damming
Broken Climate polices
On track to an unliveable world.
Extinction of a million species.
Current energy policies double 1.5 degrees
Results catastrophic – perilously close to tipping points
Governments are adding fuel to flames by investing in fossil fuels
Main prob growing emission gap
We need to drop emissions by 45% this decade, current pledges lead to 14% increase.
Dangerous radicals are the countries increasing production of fossil fuels – Investments in these are madness.
Hard to hear and take this in. Perhaps we can offer a glimmer of hope at Hockerton Housing Project. Join our Master Class on low energy housing.
I feel that protesting is our duty to get our government to react appropriately to this clear call from the UN chief. See you on the streets from the 9th April.
