Reaction to IPCC Climate Report

STOCKHOLM - Commenting on a landmark review of climate change science released today [1], Sarah-Jayne Clifton, Friends of the Earth International Climate Justice and Energy Coordinator said:

“The world’s scientists have spoken, affirming once again and now with absolute certainty that climate change caused by humans is happening and that it poses a severe and immediate threat to our future and that of the planet."

"Communities around the world are already being devastated by extreme weather.  It is untenable for our political leaders to continue their inaction."

"The interests of humanity must be prioritised above the profits of dirty energy corporations through an urgent and dramatic transformation of the world’s corporate-controlled, unsustainable energy system." 


FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
