Climate Emergency: No More Business As Usual - september 25, 8am
Bloomberg Global Business Forum, Plaza Hotel, 768 Fifth Avenue, NY, NY
FACEBOOK EVENT HERE
During U.N. Climate Week, corporate leaders and public policy makers will gather at the Bloomberg Global Business Forum on 9/25 to discuss solutions to the climate crisis they helped create.
WHEN YOUR HOUSE IS ON FIRE, YOU DON’T CALL IN THE ARSONISTS.
For too long, attendees at this meeting have ignored climate science. Despite grave warnings, they’ve poured tens of billions into the fossil fuel industry and hundreds of millions more into climate denial. In the pursuit of profit they have created the climate emergency that threatens our continued existence on earth. If power brokers like Jamie Dimon, Gary Cohn, and Henry Kissinger want to be part of the solution they must radically change their thinking, their strategy and their sense of urgency.
It’s Climate Week, the Amazon is burning, and the emergency becomes more dire every day. The eyes of the world will be on the people at this conference, and we will be there too.
Wake up bright and early and join Rise and Resist and allies for a nonviolent demonstration as the forum participants arrive for breakfast, to demand of them that they:
- Get off fossil fuels now
- Stop fracking now
- Halt pipeline projects now
- End forest destruction now.
- Protect vulnerable communities
- Create a just transition to renewable energy
- Stop pouring money into the deadly carbon economy
It is too late for incremental solutions. Our future depends on the courage we show today.
“What a strange world, where we think we can buy or build our way out of a
crisis that has been created by buying and building things.” -Greta Thunberg
