The planet is in ecological crisis: we are currently experiencing the 6th mass extinction, losing 150-200 species a day. This is a 1000 times the 'natural' rate. Scientists believe we may have entered a period of abrupt climate breakdown. This is an emergency.
In this public talk, members from the local Extinction Rebellion will share the latest climate science on where our planet is heading, discuss some of the current psychology around climate change, and offer solutions through the study of social movements.
Everyone is welcome and there will be time to ask questions and discuss afterwards. Entry is free. Library parking is available.
