Extinction Rebellion said in their announcement:

‘What can we do to help safeguard our climate, wildlife, soil and water for the next generations?

‘This is a question troubling many of us at the moment and we often feel too small and insignificant to think that we can even try to tackle the planetary crisis.

‘We have heard from David Attenborough, Greta Thunberg and others that humans simply cannot continue with lifestyles based on burning fossil fuels. We are deeply troubled by the knowledge that our children will have to suffer the consequences of a damaged planet.

‘Many of us are making changes in our personal lifestyles in order to consume less and recycle more, but scientists are warning that we aren’t changing deeply enough or fast enough.

‘That’s where Extinction Rebellion comes in. The movement, which was established only 15 months ago, is growing fast and spreading all over the world. Supporters come from many different walks of life but are united in our awareness that the climate and ecological crises have become such a dangerous problem that change is urgent and essential.

‘Several of Nottingham Extinction Rebellion’s most committed activists live in West Bridgford, and we are hosting a public talk this Tuesday. The talk, “Heading for Extinction and What to do about it?” aims to provide local people with information about the crisis itself and about how Extinction Rebellion operates.

‘We will be looking at questions such as “Is there a safe amount of Global Warming?”; “What is likely to happen if we do nothing?”; “Are we heading for runaway climate change?” and last, but not least, “What can we do?”. This talk is aimed at an adult audience as we will be discussing analysis from climate scientists, including what could happen if urgent action is not taken.’
