COP26 Stop killing us - Climate justice now
Join us for a die-in on the Boston common to demand from COP26 to make the necessary radical changes that we need to avoid the worst of the climate crisis. Time is running out, we have to act on climate justice now
In August, Rebels associated with Scientists Rebellion Spain leaked a portion of the 2022 IPCC report. We are warned that greenhouse gas emissions must peak within 4 years to prevent climate breakdown. High-income countries are producing 10 times the amount of emissions as the poorest countries.
The entire world needs to halve emissions by 2030 and reach net-zero by 2050 if we want to stay at 1.5 C. We are told, "Delayed action increases challenges to both economic and societal feasibility after 2030". Our current Paris Climate Agreement targets will not prevent this breakdown.
GHG emissions will increase by 11% with respect to 2010 levels even if every country makes their Paris Climate Agreement targets. COP26 will set the next 5 years of emissions targets, but we know it won't be the radical change needed to halt runaway global heating. Large chunks of Boston will be underwater even if we cap global heating at 1.5 C, never mind at 3 C (where the Paris Climate Agreement is likely to take us if all signers make their targets). The seas are rising and so are we. The political and electoral process cannot save us.
Weather permitting. Please sign up below to stay in the loop.
