One Climate SOS Thing: Floating A House Down the River Thames.
The Extinction Rebellion launched another high profile protest, this time floating down the River Thames in London a “model” of a suburban home that is literally partially under water as a way to raise awareness about rising sea levels that will leave many homes under water. The group said that, “[w]e are watching, in real-time, as people’s lives are destroyed around the world and in the UK. Unless action is taken to halt biodiversity loss and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net-zero these tragedies are set to worsen.” Berlin also saw a major climate protest on Sunday, as a group of activists many of whom were dressed as penguins called for a stop to all domestic and short-haul flights, arguing that they are disproportionately responsible for CO2 emissions and other gases blamed on global warming. Got our attention! Mission accomplished.
