Atmosphere is not an open sewer for global warming pollution

BIG-SUquote-AlGore02-OpenSewer

Many of the carbon companies are in danger of losing their public license to operate as more and more people realize that we simply cannot continue to put 100 million tons of global warming pollution into the atmosphere as if it’s an open sewer, every single day.

A threat to human civilisation itself

 

This collision between the power of industrial civilisation and the surprising fragility of the Earth’s ecosystem now poses a great danger that could even threaten the future of human civilisation itself.

Not science fiction

I’ve starred in a lot of science fiction movies and, let me tell you something, climate change is not science fiction, this is a battle in the real world, it is impacting us right now.

Support good leaders

We need to support leaders around the world who do not speak for the big polluters or the big corporations, but who speak for all of humanity; and for the indigenous people of the world; for the billions and billions of underprivileged people who will be most affected by this; for our children’s children; and for all the people out there whose voices have been drowned out by the politics of greed.

Now the challenges before us require each and every one of us to take action. We owe this to ourselves, but more importantly we owe this to future generations who are counting on all of us.

Death by pollution

 

Do you believe it is acceptable that 7 million people die every year from pollution? That’s more than murders, suicides, and car accidents – combined.

Unfair burden on children

Droughts, floods, heatwaves and other severe weather conditions are putting children at an increased risk of disease and malnutrition, as well as destroying their families’ homes and livelihoods. The worst part about this is that some of the youngest and most vulnerable citizens of our world are bearing the most unfair burden of climate change. Let’s encourage our world leaders to take this issue seriously.
