After coronavirus, focus on the climate emergency

May 13, 2020

A group of IPCC AR5 contributors, including Prof Rik Leemans, published a letter to the editor in the Guardian in which they beg to differ.

“It is game over for preventing dangerous climate change now that governments are planning the cheapest and quickest return to consumption. Riding on the wave of cheap oil and fossil-fuel bailouts is incompatible with keeping the average global temperature rise below 2C, let alone 1.5C.”

Read the letter to the editor in the Guardian.

This letter was inspired by a short article of one of the extinction rebellion volunteers: Marc Lopatin.
