Climate Change Alarm Bells
Increasing numbers of the World's citizenry are aware of the dangers posed by climate change. Increasingly erratic and dangerously extreme weather will impact most of us – perhaps only excluding the super rich – in a myriad of ways; ranging from agricultural decline, to flooding, to deadly heat waves. Unfortunately, those with the power in leadership roles that could most do something about climate change are the least inclined to do so. Perhaps the G8 protests – mostly in regards to African poverty, but also climate change – can wake them up.
Alarm Bells to Ring Over Climate Change
Alarm bells will ring out during the Group of Eight (G8) summit next month to wake up world leaders to take action against climate change. The environment group Friends of the Earth International has issued a call for people to ring bells at 13.45 hours (local time) on July 7 at the summit venue in Gleneagles, Scotland, and around the world “to wake the G8 leaders up to the fact that time is running out to tackle climate injustice.”
