Doing something every day will help to change your attitude and create momentum for change.
The Global South and communities of color in Global North countries disproportionately face harms from climate change, writes Ugandan climate activist Vanessa Nakate in her new book, A Bigger Picture.
“The reality is that almost nothing has changed in the Exxon playbook.”
Fossil fuel companies, experts say, “cannot be relied upon to decarbonize at the speed and scale needed” to tackle rising global emissions.
Policies like this, including putting a price on carbon, “allow polluters to keep polluting and pay the tax.”
The recent evolution of the oil industry’s political stance on a carbon tax has raised a few eyebrows, but it represents more greenwashing, according to Holly Burke of Evergreen Action.
“In particular, it is urgent to quickly transition to electric vehicles and building components, because polluting equipment sold today will last for decades.”
Given all this activity in the courts in 2020, the coming year will likely also be a busy one in terms of climate lawsuits.
