London, UK. 4th Feb 2020. Extinction Rebellion Protests continue in London, this was at the launch event for upcoming climate crisis talks, COP26, in the UK in November 2020. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson gave a speech which was much criticised for being an inadequate response to the scale of the crisis and showing a lack of urgency with his carbon neutral by 2050 date, when the vast majority of climate scientists insist we need to act far sooner.

Extinction Rebellion Protests continue in London, this was at the launch event for upcoming climate crisis talks, COP26, in the UK in November 2020. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson gave a speech which was much criticised for being an inadequate response to the scale of the crisis and showing a lack of urgency with his carbon neutral by 2050 date, when the vast majority of climate scientists insist we need to act far sooner. In response, Extinction Rebellion said: “We are here to tell politicians that 2050 is too late, that COP26 has been set up to fail, as have all previous COPs. Listen to the science, we are currently heading for a 4 degree C plus world, which is rapidly showing that it will be hostile to humanity. “Children all around the world are exposed and vulnerable to this climate and ecological emergency. Can you imagine? Children are dependent on us adults for their protection. As people engage with information about the emergency, they imagine what’s going to come in the future. How do we want to be remembered as adults, what legacy do we want to leave for our children?"
