  • 'Our Lungs Are on Fire': Climate Campaigners Rally at Brazilian Embassies to Protest Destruction of Amazon Rainforest

    Climate campaigners demonstrated outside the Brazilian embassies in London, Paris, and Madrid on Friday to protest what they say is the Bolsonaro regime's role in dozens of fires that have ravaged large swathes of the Amazon rainforest over the past three weeks.

    The Extinction Rebellion movement, which helped organize the demonstrations, said "every inch that continues to burn takes us further away from any hope of sustaining life on this earth."

    "The Amazon is fundamental to the life support systems of this planet and for us as humans," Extinction Rebellion wrote in an Instagram post ahead of the protests. "We cannot sit in silence while life on Earth is being destroyed. ⁣⁣⁣We need governments around the world to speak up against Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro—and put pressure on him to stop these devastating fires and protect the Amazon."

    The protests came amid growing global outrage over the Bolsonaro government's support for deforestation and refusal to take action to combat the fires, many of which were intentionally and illegally set to clear land, according to the New York Times.

    Carlos Nobre, a senior researcher with the Institute of Advanced Studies at the University of São Paulo, blamed Bolsonaro for encouraging the destruction of the Amazon rainforest, which is often called "the lungs of the world" for its capacity to absorb carbon dioxide.

    "The situation is very bad. It will be terrible," Nobre told the Guardian. "A very large number of these fires are due to the cultural push that ministers are giving. They are pushing deforestation because it is good for the economy. Those who do illegal deforestation are feeling empowered."

    Demonstrators on Friday echoed that assessment. Peter McCall, a pub owner based in London who attended the embassy protest, said he decided to take part because "the Amazon is so vital to all life on Earth, including ours."

    "I'm scared that if we lose it then there won't be any hope for our survival," said McCall, "and yet the Brazilian government [is] actively encouraging its deforestation and exploitation."

    The fires, which have been burning for nearly a month, forced the Brazilian state of Amazonas to declare an emergency last week.

    As the Guardian reported Friday, the fires have "sparked international concerns about the destruction of an essential carbon sink" and increased pressure on France, the U.K., and other countries to cut off trade relations with the Bolsonaro government.

    António Guterres, secretary general of the United Nations, said Thursday he is "deeply concerned by the fires in the Amazon rainforest."

    "In the midst of the global climate crisis, we cannot afford more damage to a major source of oxygen and biodiversity," Guterres tweeted. "The Amazon must be protected."

    Bolsonaro, who campaigned in part on opening the Amazon to corporate exploitation, has not taken action to stop the fires. As Common Dreams reported Wednesday, the Brazilian president suggested without evidence that non-governmental organizations may have started the fires to embarrass him.

    In a statement on Friday, the Indigenous Environmental Network and Rainforest Action Network said the fires devastating the Amazon are "not only a global emergency, they are a testament to Bolonsaro's racism, ignorance, and greed."

    "His words and deeds have paved the way for these man-made fires," the groups said. "We know that protecting tropical rainforests, stopping fossil fuel emissions, and upholding the rights of Indigenous Peoples are some of the most important ways to address the global impacts of the growing climate crisis. That's true in the Amazon. That's true in the Indonesia rainforests. That's true at Standing Rock."

  • 'The Climate Crisis Doesn't Go on Summer Holiday, And Neither Will We,' Says Greta Thunberg as #FridaysForFuture Returns to the Streets
    https://www.commondreams.org/news/2019/07/05/climate-crisis-doesnt-go-summer-holiday-and-neither-will-we-says-greta-thunberg

    For many children around the world, school is out for summer—but that hasn't stopped youth activists from taking to the streets to demand governments pursue bold solutions to battle the global climate emergency.

    "The climate crisis doesn't go on summer holiday, and neither will we. We go on," tweeted Greta Thunberg, the Swedish teenager who sparked the global climate student strike movement by protesting alone outside her country's parliament last year.

    As experts continue to sound the alarm over record-breaking temperatures worldwide, youth strikers from across the globe posted photos of their demonstrations Friday on social media with the hashtags #FridaysForFuture, #SchoolStrike4Climate, and #ClimateStrike.

    "As days passes by, so does our future draw nearer. It doesn't matter the course you study nor your age, we need you to join climate justice," said organizer Oladosu Adenike, sharing a photo of schoolchildren in Nigeria.

    Youth in Dhaka, Bangladesh held signs that read "save the Earth, save yourself" and "come forward to save our tomorrow."

    Tweeting from Turkey, 11-year-old Deniz Çevikus reported from a popular spot beside the Bosporus that "people are interested but shy."

    Others shared photos from Germany, Uganda, and Switzerland:

    The climate action group Extinction Rebellion tweeted Friday that "the millions of children striking from school will become millions of adults striking from work if our governments continue to fail to #ActNow on the climate and ecological emergencies."

    In May, as Common Dreams reported, "well-known adult climate activists answered a call to action from school strikers with a pledge to join global protests." The adults announced in an op-ed that on Sept. 20, "we're walking out of our workplaces and homes to spend the day demanding action on the climate crisis, the greatest existential threat that all of us face."

    Penn State University climate scientist Michael E. Mann was among those who signed on to the op-ed. In an interview with Hill[dot]TV that aired earlier this week, Mann said that to combat the climate crisis, "we do need a world-war type mobilization and that means putting in place incentives to move our economy as quickly as we can away from fossil fuels to renewable energy."

    "There's a legitimate policy debate to be had about how we do that, but there isn't a legitimate debate to be had anymore about the need to do that," added Mann, who also argued that electing any Democratic 2020 candidate would be better than re-electing President Donald Trump.

    "There's a world of difference of between where the Trump administration is and all of the Democrats, and I would hate to see too much infighting at this point," Mann said. "Let's make sure that we elect a president who's not going to continue to lead us backward and defy the rest of the world as we try to act on this existential threat."
