Other than the first one (yours truly), what the many well done videos in the playlist above (click top left icon to view the full list), along with most governments, politicians, media, even science academies, social justice and environmental organizations, fail, refuse or decline to make clear:
Difficult as it is to communicate, absorb, process, accept, and as shrill / alarmist as it may sound, our shared atmosphere is on an accelerating course to reach a state of potentially unsurvivable, global climate extremes during the lives of today’s children and teens.
Clear, present impacts ALREADY displace / KILL millions each year, and compromise the lives of billions RIGHT NOW.
No less than the fate of all generations of all peoples and most species hangs in the balance TODAY. And only emergency international action at emergency (world war-time) speed FAST *may be* proportional enough to confront the scale, scope and urgency of what is ALREADY the greatest crime against humanity, most life and most future life EVER. (Compilation: Betrayal of Life.)
To deny this is to deny reality. But if we take the decision / path to see AND face the true, existential wickedness of our now-shared, undeniable, inescapable predicament, there will at least be possibilities. Perhaps even some we haven’t imagined yet.
climateye is an urgent call to action for each of us to learn the basic science, spread the word, organize and mobilize to effect immediate, responsible, expansive political / social / economic / ecological reform on a massive scale.
