Grandparents are being arrested in London climate protests

Breaking News
Older people joined climate change protests in London on Sept. 2, with hopes to bring a better future for children and their families. The climate activist movement tends to be associated with younger people. But there are indications that an increasing number of older people are getting exercised about what is happening to the planet. During protests in London over the past two weeks, there have been quite a few gray heads in the crowd — the “gray greens,” as one BBC presenter called them. And many of those people said they were willing to go to jail for their beliefs.

The New York Times Debate: We Currently Have All the Tools We Need To Stop Climate Change 🌿

Breaking News
To mark the launch of The New York Times Climate Hub, The New York Times hosted a debate at SXSW to discuss whether - today - we have the tools we need to stop climate change. With 2020 tying the record for the hottest year, we agree we have to combat global warming. Some argue that we don’t have all of the tools. To halt global warming, we must pursue new solutions and technologies to help us to reduce carbon emissions. For others, the tools for creating a sustainable economy already exist. It’s simply a matter of changing behaviour and holding policy-makers and business leaders to their commitments. To learn more about The New York Times Climate Hub, visit: nytclimatehub.com
