Climate Change: Heading for Extinction (and what to do about it)

This talk held by 2 members of Extinction Rebellion Sheffield will share the latest climate science, talk about where our planet is heading if sufficient action is not taken immediately, discuss the current psychology around climate change, and offer solutions through the study of social movements.

The International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) held its first meeting in 1990. In the 29 years since then, carbon dioxide emissions have risen by over 65%, and the global temperature keeps rising. We’re seeing the effects of climate breakdown all around the world: deadly forest fires, devastating cyclones and hurricanes, unprecedented heatwaves and extreme droughts. We’re heading for much worse.

The basic premise of this talk is to tell the truth and ask us all to act accordingly and consistently with the information, including our understanding of what actually enables change to happen in the world. The talk will be taking place on the First floor of Union Street, S1 2JP on Tuesday 9th April. Doors open at 7pm with drinks on the ground floor, the talk will then start at 7.30pm.
