Last weekend, I met some other Christian activists discussing the serious threat of climate change, its effects on the poor and what we should do. We will partake in Act Alliance‘s global climate campaign next year that will urge world leaders meeting at the COP 21 in Paris, December 2015, to finally reach a universal, legally binding agreement on the reduction of greenhouse gases, stopping the global warming from reaching more than 2 degrees Celsius. To get some inspiration, we watched an awesome documentary called Disruption, produced by 350.org.

Instead of getting stuck in debates with the skeptics, Disruption simply concludes that the absolute majority of climate scientists agree that this is an enormous threat towards especially the poor and vulnerable. The title refers to “the dangerous environmental tipping points after which the entire climate system could spiral out of control, as well as the need for a mass social movement to disrupt the status quo and business-as-usual approach which is inhibiting the bold actions necessary to protect the planet’s future.” If the current global warming melts the arctic or releases tons of methane in the tundra, climate change may spin out of control. It is urgent to stop this as soon as possible.

Disruption is thankfully not just about the problem, but mainly about the solution. It’s a film by activists for activists, and its main focus is the historic People’s Climate March, the biggest climate manifestation in history. The documentary was released two weeks prior to the actual march, so you may feel a little disappointed after watching it without seeing what is being prepared throughout the film. But fear not, I got the solution: here are some pics from this amazing event that occured on September 21st in New York, Berlin, London, Lagos, Istanbul and many other places:

God bless activists that care about God’s creation! Pray for a climate revolution of simplicity, solidarity and economic equality.

    Christians should not be misled so easily by Minitrue. The worst case scenario for the poor is rich counties squelching development for the poor nations. The only thing a majority of scientists agree on is that the Kyoto goals will have no impact on climate. Dr. Richard Lindzen of MIT: “”One of the things the scientific community is pretty agreed on is those things [CO2 limits] will have virtually no impact on climate no matter what the models say. So the question is do you spend trillions of dollars to have no impact? And that seems like a no brainer.”

    “…Global warming, as a political vehicle, keeps Europeans in the driver’s seat and developing nations walking barefoot.” – Dr. Takeda Kunihiko

    Hi Michael. I wonder if you can justify that statement please (re “the majority”)? I think it is quite wrong. e.g.

    U.S. National Academy of Sciences: “The scientific understanding of climate change is now sufficiently clear to justify taking steps to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.” (2005) (Quoted by NASA)

    US EPA is taking steps to address climate change.

    An Australian Government website says: “In tandem with the Kyoto Protocol, 90 countries covering over 80 per cent of global emissions have made international pledges to limit their emissions under the UNFCCC.”

    The European Union also seems to be committed to working to implement Kyoto.

    So perhaps your quote comes from one person who is out of step with most everyone else?
