BRING UR FRIENDS The Tories' plan for carbon neutrality by 2050 is unreliable and too far away; in the same year the UK government are hosting COP26 they have supported plans for new coal mines in Cumbria as well as scrapping green homes grants. The latest IPCC report is NOT something that should be ignored by worldwide governments: we need extreme government action NOW to prevent any further widespread devastation - this is already seen in the Greek and Turkish wildfires this year, as well as the Australian bushfires last year. Droughts are also becoming more and more rampant around the world, particularly in the global south. Just 100 companies are responsible for 71% of carbon emissions alone, and the world's richest 1% emit double the amount of emissions of the poorest 50% - the climate crisis inherently deepens inequality and in the long term we need a new system which is not focused on bringing short term profits to the elite ruling class.
