Climate change can feel overwhelming – especially when we see headlines about another heat wave or experience extreme weather events ourselves. And sometimes it can feel like too big an issue us to tackle. But there is hope. It’s not too late to prevent its worst effects. And we can make a difference, both locally and nationally – especially in advance of the crucial COP26 climate summit in November, which the UK is hosting.
This global summit is a critical moment for our planet. World leaders will meet in Glasgow to decide how countries can work together to stop the earth’s atmosphere heating up too much. And how more developed countries like the UK – who are historically far more responsible for global warming – can help poorer nations tackle the impact of the climate emergency, and transition to a green future.
As the host nation the UK has a great opportunity to make it a success. But only if Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Chancellor Rishi Sunak seriously step up their game over the next two months to ensure that they and other global leaders commit to doing what needs to be done.
The problem? Right now many think they’re missing in action. Boris Johnson isn’t showing the international leadership that’s needed, and Chancellor Rishi Sunak doesn’t appear to want to invest in a green future. If that turns out to be the case, it’s a recipe for failure – and we simply cannot allow it to happen.
38 Degrees, the not-for-profit political-activism organisation, is starting a campaign to ensure Boris Johnson and co don’t let this critical moment for our planet slip away. Will you sign up to be a part of it?
