Very concerned

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Yes . Chatham house report , recent IPCC report , Sir David King amongst others tell us we have about 3 yrs left to radically alter the future our children will inherit. Understanding this fundamentally alters our understanding of what climate action is . No amount of individual behavioural change will make the huge amount of change needed in so short a time . Telling people this truth is vital. Fossil fuel dependency is the thing that has to change . Giving government a radical mandate for this change via civil disobedience is the only moral thing we have left to do . Please read the recent science and please tell the truth to people , the deserve to hear it .
