If the political class fully grasped the implications and truly had our interests at heart, it would be even more panicked about #climatebreakdown than it is about Brexit.
Here too, we are approaching a cliff edge: action to prevent climate breakdown has been delayed for so long that only massive and immediate cuts in emissions, coupled with carbon drawdown from the atmosphere, can prevent catastrophic levels of heating.
Unlike Brexit, there is no climbing back over this cliff. Climatic tipping points are highly likely to be irreversible. Politics everywhere should be going nuts about this. Instead we hear … next to nothing.
Without drastic and decisive action to prevent climate breakdown, everything else is futile. Everything politicians think they are achieving is a complete waste of time. Their only lasting legacy will be catastrophic failure and collapse.
Thanks to the comprehensive failure by the media, politics and power in general to attend to our existential crisis, it's left to the young people betrayed by this system to take a stand. The rest of us must rise in solidarity with them. #fridaysforfuture #SchoolStrike4Climate
