Stories from the climate warrior for the first half of July

Half a year after the Cop 26 climate summit drew to a close, action at the scale and pace needed has not materialised, while warnings about record-breaking heatwaves, sea level rising and climate-related food insecurity are near-daily.


Alok Sharma, Cop 26 president, put it this way.


“Leaders have not done enough to deliver on their Glasgow commitments and that must change.”

“We need every nation to pick up the pace.”

A report by the World Meteorological Organization published at the end of May found that alarming new records were set for greenhouse gas concentrations, sea level rise, ocean heat and acidification in 2021, showing that human activities are causing “planetary-scale changes” on land, in the ocean and in the atmosphere.


“Our climate is changing before our eyes,”

said WMO Secretary-General Petteri Taalas.

At the end of May the UK’s Conservative government has been accused of risking Britain’s reputation as a climate leader after announcing a tax relief measure for oil and gas companies who invest in new fossil fuel extraction in the UK.


Climate activists and opposition MPs rebuked Chancellor of the Exchequer, Rishi Sunak, for incentivizing new oil and gas drilling when scientists, the United Nations and the International Energy Agency have plainly stated that the world must halt fossil fuel investment to prevent a runaway climate emergency.

A joint effort of several authors who do find that nobody can keep standing at the side and that “Everyone" must care about what is going on in today’s world. We are a bunch of people who do not mind that somebody has a totally different idea but is willing to share the ideas with others and to be Active and willing to let others understand how "today’s decisions will influence the future”. Therefore we would love to see many others to "Act today".
