Activism that gives hope and security that is at risk
As leaders fail to act in a time of crisis, it's easy to doubt the positive effects of activism. But there are many examples of when the climate movement has contributed to meaningful progress. The marches ahead of COP 21 emboldened world leaders to work out the Paris agreement, tireless advocacy for a carbon fee and dividend system has led to the adoption of such policies in Switzerland and Canada, and the school strike movement continues to amplify our sense of emergency.
But as we know progress has been much too slow. We already experience the effects global warming has on our security, well-being, and social stability. Security analysts and military personnel are often among the most forthcoming about the seriousness of our situation, as it is in their DNA to assess systematic risks.
This is a broadcast about hope through activism and the clarity of the security perspective. Welcome!
