This must be the year of climate action—we've wasted so many
The climate issue has grown too large and devastating to ignore and, over the last few years, we’ve seen a significant increase in media attention and climate activism, the latter led most effectively by youth, Indigenous peoples and vulnerable communities who are demanding a new climate politics. We need a massive civic mobilization, on an unprecedented scale, to join this new hard-nosed activism of groups like Sunrise Movement and Extinction Rebellion. We need the demand for action raised to the highest decibel our civil society can generate.
