We all remember those heady days in Paris back in 2015, when COP21 produced the Paris Agreement and the world felt the stirring of hope again.
Well, we all know what's happened since then. Years of climate breakdown, social breakdown, and broken promises. Right now, we're on track for 3 degrees of warming—way above the 2-degree threshold to catastrophic consequences, and way way above the Paris Agreement's goal of 1.5 degrees.
That changes NOW. This fall's COP26—in three months' time—is when nations get real about meeting the goals outlined in the Paris Agreement. Which means that activists have between now and October to tell our governments: we demand climate action, now. We demand that you uphold the Paris Agreement, now. We will not let you casually kill this planet or its people.
How can you help? Start by supporting global activist movers and shakers Avaaz. Their Five Months to Change the World campaign has been raising funds for months, to radically grow their climate team, amping up the pressure on governments and supercharging protests around the world. DONATE HERE.
