Climate change activism

Extinction Rebellion take over key areas of London
Parts of central London were brought to a standstill earlier this week as thousands of people blocked off roads in protest at the government's lack of action on climate change. The group, Extinction Rebellion, stopped traffic on one of London's busiest bridges and occupied Oxford Circus, the centre of London's busy shopping district.

Bill McKibben is an environmentalist who has been at the forefront of climate activism for much of the last 30 years.  His new book, Falter, paints a rather bleak picture of the effects that humans have had on our natural environment.
