Extinction Rebellion video report from Dublin

category dublin | environment | news report author Wednesday April 24, 2019 23:23author by wsm - Workers Solidarity Movement Report this post to the editors

WSM Report on Extinction Rebellion rally

Saturday 20th saw another #Extinction Rebellion rally take place in Dublin. Our video shows as it marches to block O’Connell bridge.

Several hundred people marched through Dublin this afternoon as part of Extinction Rebellion Ireland. They then moved to block the northbound lane of O'Connell bridge. This is in the context of the UN science report that says we only have until 2030 so that's now getting nearer to 11 than 12 years to reduce greenhouse gas emissions enough to prevent a disastrous climate change of 2 degrees centigrade or higher. We are already seeing devastation in many parts of the world most recently in Mozambique and in Iran where unusual big weather events caused very heavy flooding.

In Mozambique in particular that's leading to serious food shortages both of these events have been connected with the climate change process by scientists. The problem is we live in an economic system capitalism that's promised on continuous growth and in fact goes into crisis if that growth falls much below 3% a year.

3% doesn't sound very much but it basically means every 24 years production doubles and with the doubling of production the emission of greenhouse gases rises by a similar fraction. That's why we're running out of time and we have to look at how we are going to manage to force change the sort of change at scale that's needed to prevent the continued emission and in fact increasing emission of greenhouse gases
