The Dublin Branch of The Irish Wildlife Trust are hosting a March Green Drinks event on Tuesday the 5th
This month environmental activist John Gibbons will talk about climate change. The world has been trying to tackle climate change for the last three decades. In that time, global emissions have actually risen by 60% and biodiversity collapses are now sweeping across ecosystems. Despite the abundant evidence of current harms and future dangers, governments, including our own, plough ahead regardless as catastrophe looms ever closer.
As thousands of schoolchildren take to the streets to protest this month, maybe it’s time to take on board the words of teenage activist, Greta Thunberg, when she says: “I don’t want you to be hopeful. I want you to panic. I want you to feel the fear I feel every day. And then – I want you to act”
John maintains an environmental blog at http://www.thinkorswim.ie/ He has appeared on RTE, the BBC and has written for the Guardian newspaper among others. As usual, we meet in Sweetman’s on O’Connell Bridge at 7pm.
