BBC: Climate change: Impacts ‘accelerating’ as leaders gather for UN talks. “Climate change due to us is accelerating and on a very dangerous course.” “We should listen to the loud cry coming from the schoolchildren. There is an emergency – one for action in both rapidly reducing our greenhouse gas emissions towards zero and adapting to the inevitable changes in climate.”
Time magazine: “Five decades ago Brazil incentivized millions of its people to colonize the Amazon. Today their logging yards, cattle enclosures and soy farms sit on the fringes of a vanishing forest. Powered by murky sources of capital and rising demand for beef, a violent and corrupt frontier is now pushing into indigenous land, national parks and one of the most preserved parts of the jungle. Scientists warn that decades of human activity and a changing climate has brought the jungle near a “tipping point.”
Watch Johannesburg Climate Save’s video: 700 kids sing the CO2 song at a yoga event held by the City Kidz school.
“The rain isn’t falling, I need a drink,
I’m thirsty and very sad,
If you cut me down, we both won’t breathe, And that will be real, real bad.
Ch: Gimme, gimme, gimme your CO2 I’ll breathe it in and give it back to you As oxygen, I’ll help you out
’Cos that’s what giving is all about.”

Animal and climate activists are merging—and for good reason
“Last year, global animal rights group the Save Movement created a new branch—the Climate Save Movement. ‘There was a recognition that the animal rights movement needs to work with environmental groups in a movement of movements,’ says Toronto activist Anita Krajnc. ‘Roger Hallam, the co-founder of Extinction Rebellion, says ‘If we don’t work together, we are going to die together.’”
