This year’s Nobel Peace Prize should’ve gone to Greta Thunberg – what’s more important than climate action?

There were many worthy candidates for this year’s prize, including the winners, but unless we prize climate truth, climate justice and climate action sufficiently, everything else, including all other worthy causes, will be swept away.

Venice is sinking and the elite does nothing – is civil disobedience the only way to make governments listen on climate change?

October 31st — All Hallows’ Eve — is the day of the launch of “Extinction Rebellion”. Hundreds of us will be descending upon Parliament Square, to declare that we’re no longer willing to stand by while the-powers-that-be frogmarch our species (and most wildlife) towards extinction.

Climate chaos has become an existential threat. And so we’re rebelling.
