    UK's Extinction Rebellion Disrupts

    Extinction Rebellion, the climate protesters disrupting London, explained; Activists want the UK to commit to zero net emissions by 2025. Is that possible?

    Eliza Barclay and Umair Irfan, April 25, 2019 (VOX)

    “Thousands of activists have been unleashing strategic disorder in London over the past 10 days to draw attention to the accelerating climate crisis. In costume and in tents, they’ve barricaded roads and bridges at major city landmarks, with more than 1,000 peacefully submitting to arrest…The coordinated direct actions across the city have been organized by Extinction Rebellion, a movement founded last year to demand a more aggressive climate target from the British government: net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2025…With a core message that climate change is an “emergency” that threatens the survival of the human species, Extinction Rebellion is sounding a shriller alarm than past climate protests. Members are also deploying ostentatious, nonviolent tactics…

    Extinction Rebellion’s urgency and energy on climate change is aligned with a wave of youth climate activism bubbling up in Europe, the United States, and beyond…[like the student strikes] led by the riveting Greta Thunberg, a 16-year-old from Sweden…If a protest is measured by how much attention and irritation it stirs up, then Extinction Rebellion has been wildly successful…Extinction Rebellion protesters in London have three key demands…For climate change to be treated as an emergency…A commitment to net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2025…The creation of a citizen assembly for climate action…The UK’s use of coal has declined dramatically…But the hardest work lies ahead: the country now must tackle… emissions from aviation, agriculture, biomass, and above all transportation…[Can the UK reach] net-zero emissions by 2025? Why not try?” click here for more
