Update: 26 April 2019
Since Extinction Rebellion’s London actions in April and the consequent increase in media coverage, attitudes to the Climate Emergency are changing. IPPC deadlines are looking inadequate. Pressure is mounting for even more ambitious aims including UK Carbon zero by 2025. Previously this was dismissed as unachievable but now the means and costs are being widely discussed. Immediate and radical responses are the logical next steps as the reality of the threat becomes clear. Ongoing pressure from health professionals at all levels to meet more exacting targets could help prevent and mitigate potentially dire health consequences.
