Get Over the Global Climate Talks (But Why We Shouldn’t Give Up on Stabilising the Climate)

Truth: The climate movement is in an unhealthy relationship with the international climate talks, known as COP.

So do we give up on the COP climate talks? No, despair is a luxury we cannot afford.

The trick is not to invest all our activist energy, or our hope, in the international climate talks.

Governments aren’t leading the way for large-scale change; grassroots activists are.

Speaking as a climate activist of 15 long years, I can confidently say that while we are woefully short of time, the wind has never been more at our backs.
