In other news.... #TakeASeat or #TakeYourSeat is one hashtag you want to be using this week. Use this to send your personal message to world leaders at this year's COP24 to tell them exactly your thoughts on Climate Change.On 3rd of December 2018 delegates from 200 countries met in Katowice, Poland and will be there for one week. They will outline with business plans for how their individual countries will be able to execute their Paris Agreement commitments set out in 2015 and there is even one chair available for a civilian, The People's Seat. The representative selected for this is no other than Sir David Attenborough.
He can address the UN directly and tell them what climate change means for us, as a people. Watch his video address here, courtesy of WWF UK. There have been tens of thousands of people in Brussels protesting climate change using the hashtag #Claimtheclimate.
I URGE you to do your part. Read an article, write a piece, approach a member of parlament or your local MPs to get active. With Jair Bolsonaro's new victory of taking Brazil's presidency, he plans to effectively torch what remains of the Amazon Rainforest in favour of selling the land to beef farmers. The Amazon is our last remaining sponge, soaking up a large portion of carbon dioxide. Without it, the floodgates open and we descend head first into planet over-heat. With a person like this south of the equator willing to throw away every protective right we have bestowed on the Amazon over the last couple of decades, it is imperative that world leaders step up to balance out this potential hard swing towards total climate catastrophe.
