Wide Awake Protest

Dubbing the action a ‘Wide Awake’ protest, a Just Stop Oil spokesperson said, “There should be no rest for the wicked. Rishi Sunak has already abandoned the promises he made to his own children on climate – he should have listened to them. New oil and gas is a sealed death warrant for the young and those who have done the least to contribute to this crisis. It’s disgraceful that an unelected Prime Minister should throw our futures away to squeeze out more profit for his fossil fuel lobbyist cronies. Any politician who has the slightest desire to represent the interests of the British people would immediately ban all new licenses for oil and gas in the UK.”

After all the media attention to briefly crossing 2.0°C over the pre-industrial baseline, one might wonder where we're at now. Well, yesterday was only 1.67°C -- there's a real chill in the air. In other news, there is no other news.

“What are our responsibilities at this time? Because of the fossil fuel industry, we are facing horrors of a magnitude never before experienced in our existence. Our government continues to lead us to the edge of no return. We must stand up and defend ourselves. No one else is going to do it. It must be us, if we want to live.
Our methods must be disruptive, and they must be nonviolent. Our actions are evidence-based, credible, and we have a plan. The only thing missing at this point in time is YOU!”
