Saving Our Planet and the global protest movements:

We consider the global protest movements - especially Extinction Rebellion and the school strikes inspired by Greta Thunberg - to be among the most promising current initiatives on the planet. Obviously they have understood that we have to stand up and act NOW!

Therefore we have created a page with the latest news, updated hourly, about these protest movements. Please click the button below or the menu item 'Protests' to go there.

The two videos:

George Monbiot, 'What you’re doing there at XR is world changing…' – Extinction Rebellion

Greta Thunberg, 'Together we are making a difference' – Extinction Rebellion

Introducing Extinction Rebellion and Greta Thunberg:
State of the Planet:

Do you want to do something about global warming? We need to stand up now, because very soon it’ll be too late.

Despite umpteen meetings, resolutions and UN Conferences, our planet is on track for over 4°C global warming – which means catastrophe for all life on earth: melting icecaps, heat, drought, famine, floods and tens of millions of climate refugees.

We’re here to inspire you to take action: What you can do yourself? What do we need to do together? How can we each make a difference?

Please join the millions who want the best for our children, our wildlife, and our planet by limiting global warming.

"We all have a choice. We can create transformational action that will safeguard the living conditions for future generations. Or we can continue with our business as usual and fail."
- Greta Thunberg
Understanding Climate Change:

"We are stuck between the impossible and the unthinkable – so for the rest of your life, your job is to make the impossible possible."

- David Roberts


"We have not come here to beg world leaders to care. You have ignored us in the past and you will ignore us again. We have run out of excuses and we are running out of time. We have come here to let you know that change is coming, whether you like it or not. The real power belongs to the people. Thank you.”

- Greta Thunberg. 15 year old Swedish climate activist at UN COP24


The Big Picture in two short videos:

The first video showing the urgency and the need for immediate action in a very direct and compelling way - and the dire consequences of inaction!

The second video showing clearly what we must do, and that solutions are both possible and affordable.

Challenges, Solutions & What You Can Do:
Challenges:

Media and politicians are "underplaying" the gravity of the threats we are facing, because they are afraid to say things in a straight forward manner. Learn why it is important to join the fight against climate change, and why we are in a hurry!

Solutions:

Solutions do exist, and they are well documented. But to implement them, we all have to get involved - intellectually, emotionally and politically. Learn about the many exciting initiatives going on in the world to contribute to the solutions.

What You can do:

The world needs a fast global mobilization to save our planet. Many people give up - they feel powerless. But: “The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it.” Find out why you matter and how you can contribute!

How this website can help you:
A Wake-up call for Climate Change:

It seems many people know that Global Warming is happening and that it is a consequence of human activities.

Still most people go on with “business as usual”.

For many reasons. One of them is the idea that someone else will solve the problems.

Another is the feeling of personal powerlessness, which in turn leads to apathy.

Finally many people obtain a mental distance to the problem by imagining that the problems are far away in time and space.

The reality is, that Climate Change has some very real consequences here and now, and we have only a very short time available for action aiming at preventing the worst thinkable consequences: That the planet becomes uninhabitable for human beings.

We need a mobilization!

Inspiration for Climate Action:

Most of the problems the world is facing are psychological in nature. It has to do with different levels of denial.

The basic form of denial is intellectual. Denying that Climate Change is real and is man made.

The next level of denial is emotional. Accepting that Climate Change is real and manmade, but not being emotionally affected by it. Living life as if it is something remote that will not affect your life seriously.

The third level of denial is political. Accepting Climate Change intellectually, being strongly affected by it emotionally, but not acting accordingly. Not using the knowledge and emotions to inspire political action.

These three kinds of denial are very essential in preventing humanity from stopping Global Warming.

A major purpose of this website is to help YOU to become intellectually, emotionally and politically and practically involved in the battle to save Civilization.

We need you!
