Over the weekend actions up and down the country and beyond, have targeted dangerous ‘greenwash’ desperately pushed by corporations and politicians. The actions come in the wake of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Report released on Friday which warns of world temperature rises of as much as 6.4C by the end of the century. The reports findings show a 4 degree rise would mean a 10% loss in global food production due to draught, increased flooding, water shortages, and an increased risk of diseases such as malaria. Most frightening of all, we risk run away climate change. While the world wakes up to the magnitude of climate chaos, Shell and Exxon Mobil last week announced record breaking profits. With the figures laid out so clearly the nauseating hypocrisy spouted by corporations and politicians has spurred action from Paris to Aberdeen.
