The Right to a Future, with Naomi Klein and Greta Thunberg

Published by The Intercept on September 10, 2019
We are restreaming last night’s event in HD for those who were unable to watch live. The Intercept invites you to watch a special event in New York City hosted by Intercept senior correspondent Naomi Klein, author of the forthcoming book “On Fire: The (Burning) Case for a Green New Deal,” and headlined by trailblazing climate activist Greta Thunberg, author of “No One Is Too Small to Make a Difference.” Together with youth leaders Xiuhtezcatl Martinez, Xiye Bastida, and Vic Barrett, as well as Indigenous Amazon leader Tuntiak Katan, Thunberg and Klein helped us envision a just and sustainable future, confront our climate emergency, and discuss the emerging cross-generational, transnational movement — including people of all races, classes, and backgrounds — that is our best hope for a sustainable planet. Both a celebration of youth activism and a reflection on how to break through the political and economic barriers preventing meaningful climate action, “The Right to a Future” brought together a singular group of environmental leaders who are on the forefront of the battle to secure a thriving future for many generations to come. “The Right to a Future” kicks off a week of climate coverage, starting September 15, by Intercept reporters working across our beats. The effort is part of Covering Climate Now, a project co-founded by The Nation and Columbia Journalism Review, in partnership with The Guardian, that “aims to convene and inform a conversation among journalists about how all news outlets can do justice to the defining story of our time.” This event took place ahead of the Global Climate Strike starting September 20 and the U.N. Climate Action Summit on September 23.

Greta Thunberg urges MEPs to ‘panic like the house is on fire’ – Address to European Parliament, April 16, 2019

Published on Apr 16, 2019

Greta Thunberg, the 16-year-old Swedish climate activist, made an impassioned plea for the planet at the European Parliament on Tuesday (16 April), urging MEPs to “start panicking about climate change” rather than “waste time arguing about Brexit”.
In another impressive speech to EU officials, this time in front of the Parliament’s environment committee, Thunberg told MEPs that “I want you to act like the house is on fire. I want you to panic.”
The activist acknowledged that “some parties don’t want me here today because they so desperately don’t want to talk about climate breakdown” but reiterated that “it’s ok if you ignore me but you can’t ignore the science”.
Drawing parallels with Monday night’s tragic inferno that ripped through the roof of Paris’ Notre-Dame cathedral, Thunberg hoped “that our civilisation’s foundations are even stronger than Notre-Dame’s. I fear that they are not.”
She added that “if the house was falling apart, you wouldn’t waste time arguing about Brexit” and that “permanent and unprecedented changes” are needed, including making sure that emissions are cut by at least 50% by 2030. The current target is 40%.

How a 16-Year-Old Is Leading a Global Climate Movement – Great Big Story

Published on Apr 15, 2019

For hundreds of thousands of young people around the world, Greta Thunberg is an icon. In August 2018, dismayed by adults’ lack of action on the global climate crisis, the teenager sat herself down in front of the Swedish Parliament, pledging to strike from school every Friday until Sweden aligned its policies with the Paris Agreement. Greta’s actions have earned her a Nobel Peace Prize nomination and speaking engagements at the World Economic Forum and COP24—but most importantly, they’ve encouraged students from all over the globe to stand up for Earth and their futures.

CLIMATE JUSTICE TRAINING – Inclusion for a Just Transition, with Catherine Coleman Flowers (ACRE) and Anita Simha (Poor People’s Campaign), Duke University, January 11, 2019

Duke Franklin Humanities Institute

Published on Jan 29, 2019

Catherine Coleman Flowers [jump to 11 min, 5 sec], founder of the Alabama Center for Rural Enterprise (ACRE), joined the Climate Speakers Network, a program of The Climate Reality Project, the Duke Human Rights Center at FHI, and a number of state and local partners to conduct an immersive climate justice training at Duke University.

This initial discussion was about the disproportionate burden borne upon low income and communities of color. For too long, the most vulnerable among us have been the most impacted by environmental injustice. Ms. Flowers was joined by Anita Simha [jump tp 3 min, 45 sec] who works closely with The Poor People’s Campaign as a community organizer.

The event consisted of conversations about the complex relationship between the environmental and justice movements, education on the local impacts of climate change, a climate communications training, and interactive workshops and skills-based training sessions on the steps we can take to address the climate crisis.

The Duke Human Rights Center @ the Franklin Humanities Institute brings together an interdisciplinary group of scholars, staff and students to promote new understandings about global human rights issues.

The Center is dedicated to teaching and practicing human rights both at home and abroad. As a university entity, we encourage our students to think deeply about human dignity and rights at the same time that they understand their history, development and practice.

Greta Thunberg full speech at UN Climate Change COP24 Conference

Published on Dec 15, 2018

See the connect4climate news report.

Transcript of the speech:

“My name is Greta Thunberg. I am 15 years old. I am from Sweden.

I speak on behalf of Climate Justice Now.

Many people say that Sweden is just a small country and it doesn’t matter what we do.

But I’ve learned you are never too small to make a difference.

And if a few children can get headlines all over the world just by not going to school, then imagine what we could all do together if we really wanted to. But to do that, we have to speak clearly, no matter how uncomfortable that may be.

You only speak of green eternal economic growth because you are too scared of being unpopular. You only talk about moving forward with the same bad ideas that got us into this mess, even when the only sensible thing to do is pull the emergency brake.

You are not mature enough to tell it like is. Even that burden you leave to us children. But I don’t care about being popular. I care about climate justice and the living planet.

Our civilization is being sacrificed for the opportunity of a very small number of people to continue making enormous amounts of money.

Our biosphere is being sacrificed so that rich people in countries like mine can live in luxury. It is the sufferings of the many which pay for the luxuries of the few.

The year 2078, I will celebrate my 75th birthday. If I have children maybe they will spend that day with me. Maybe they will ask me about you. Maybe they will ask why you didn’t do anything while there still was time to act.

You say you love your children above all else, and yet you are stealing their future in front of their very eyes.

Until you start focusing on what needs to be done rather than what is politically possible, there is no hope. We cannot solve a crisis without treating it as a crisis.

We need to keep the fossil fuels in the ground, and we need to focus on equity. And if solutions within the system are so impossible to find, maybe we should change the system itself.

We have not come here to beg world leaders to care. You have ignored us in the past and you will ignore us again.

We have run out of excuses and we are running out of time.

We have come here to let you know that change is coming, whether you like it or not. The real power belongs to the people.

Thank you.”

Airport Expansion: The Global Cost of the Carbon Jet Set


Published on Feb 9, 2018

A new global network has been launched to combat and coordinate action against the frightening expansion plans of the aviation industry. The plans are driven by the super rich flying increasingly frequently to their tax havens – and if they go ahead there is no chance of stopping runaway climate change. Fortunately there is growing resistance everywhere from a coalition of local residents, environmentalists and trade unionists, determined to stop the plans while protecting the futures of the workers who work in the industry – from hunger strikes in South Korea to the stunning victory in Notre-Dame-Des-Landes, Nantes.

Activists Condemn Failure of COP23 to Address Interrelated Crises of Climate, Energy & Inequality

Democracy Now!

Published on Nov 17, 2017 – On the last day of the United Nations climate summit in Bonn, Germany, we get a wrap-up on negotiations. This year is the first COP since President Trump vowed to pull the United States out of the landmark 2015 Paris climate deal, a process which takes four years. At this year’s COP, a new coalition of 19 countries has committed to working toward phasing out coal, although many of these countries—including Britain—continue to expand fracking and other extraction projects. Also this week in Bonn, indigenous groups won increased recognition of their rights, autonomy and participation in negotiations. But many say this year’s negotiations do not go nearly far enough to address climate change—especially as new research shows the threat is continuing to accelerate. We speak with Dipti Bhatnagar, the climate justice and energy coordinator at Friends of the Earth International, and Asad Rehman, the executive director of War on Want.

Professor Robert D. Bullard

Distinguished Prof. of Urban Planning and Environmental Policy.

Dean of the Barbara Jordan-Mickey Leland School of Public Affairs at Texas Southern University.

He is often regarded as the “father of environmental justice.”

Keynote Lecture Abstract
For more than three decades Robert D. Bullard has been at the forefront of the environmental justice movement through his teaching, lectures, scholarship, research, service and activism. His lecture at MIT explores how the environment justice framework redefined environmentalism and challenged institutional racism and the dominant environmental protection paradigm. Much of his life’s work has been devoted to uncovering the underlying assumptions that contribute to and produce unequal protection and brings to the surface the ethical and political questions of “who gets what, when, where, why, and how much.” Bullard’s research has documented that some communities have the “wrong complexion for protection” and living on the “wrong side of the tracks” can be hazardous to one’s health.

A presentation from Carbon Visuals CEO Antony Turner at TEDx event in Exeter, UK, April 2012.

In this nine minute video CEO Antony Turner makes the case for visualising greenhouse gases by turning mass, e.g. kilos and tonnes, into volumes. He tells the story of the formation of Carbon Visuals as a business and the creation of simple images that help people ‘get’ the fact that we are changing the atmosphere of the planet.

He then puts the case for using volumetric visualisations to help show multiple data sets and tell more complex stories, and gives examples of the use of ‘real-time’ visualisation. Using Google Earth he shows how we can see the carbon footprints of public buildings in Exeter by ‘flying’ over the landscape – finishing in the very building where the talk is taking place.

He finishes by pointing out that up to now we’ve only been able to understand the primary cause of climate change through numbers. The numbers are important but we also need to incorporate more direct and sensory ways of experiencing the world.
