Extinction Rebellion is a global environmental movement with the stated aim of using nonviolent civil disobedience to compel governments to act to avoid triggering tipping points in the climate system, biodiversity loss, and the risk of social and ecological collapse. We are facing an unprecedented global emergency. Life on Earth is in crisis: scientists agree we have entered a period of abrupt climate breakdown, and we are in the midst of a mass extinction of our own making. We are unprepared for the danger our future holds. We face floods, wildfires, extreme weather, crop failure, mass population displacement and the breakdown of society.
The time for denial is over. It is time to act: https://rebellion.earth
