Scientists are blindfolded over climate pictures
Statues of blindfolded scientists with concerned citizens. In the Netherlands, there are 27 statues in more than 20 cities. Leverdji in Amsterdam, Queen Wilhelmina in Utrecht and Apeldoorn, and Bonifatius in Dokkum, among others, were blindfolded.
More than a hundred activists were moving around the country at dawn. Political activists demand that they not shy away from science. The latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change last week makes clear once again that the climate crisis and environmental catastrophe threaten our very existence and require immediate action.
This offer is part of a global promotional campaign in more than ten countries. From the US to Switzerland, rebels are blindfolding iconic statues to demand action on the climate crisis. This is the second time activists have ganged up on statues. Last Sunday, scientists in ten countries blindfolded more than two dozen statues like Spinoza, Erasmus, and Rembrandt. Now there are more than a hundred. Statues have requirements such as “tell the truth,” “face the facts,” and “get a statue.” In some places, scientists have also pasted dozens of disturbing graphs over the photos.
Statues of blindfolded scholars on Sunday statue
The Scholars Rebellion started operating last Sunday and is now powered by Extinction Rebellion. They call it “Sunday Statue”. “This is our second Sunday promotion, and many more will follow.” Statues are iconic symbols that you can find all over the world. If world leaders hope to get a statue one day, they must now radically change course and do what is necessary to halt biodiversity loss and achieve zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2025, said Spencer Heijnen, a spokesperson for the measure.
What is the scholars’ rebellion?
Scholars’ Rebellion (SR) It is an international movement of scientists who are deeply concerned about the climate and environmental crisis and believe that the scientific community has a responsibility to act and join the forefront of the climate movement. It is a sister organization to Extinction Rebellion and respects its principles and values.
The SR rebels pressure governments – through peaceful, creative and destructive action – to ensure they take action against the climate and environmental crisis.
Scientists have been sounding the alarm about the climate crisis for decades. They wrote letters, signed petitions, and gave lectures. But governments heeded our warnings, and emissions continued to rise. In the words of United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres: “We are driving down the highway to the climate cell with our feet full on the accelerator.”
Carbon dioxide emissions peak before 2025
Last week, a new report was published by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), a United Nations agency that monitors climate change risks. The report draws very troubling conclusions. At the current cycle, we are putting a livable and sustainable future at stake for all people on Earth, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change wrote. Carbon dioxide emissions must peak before 2025 in order to limit global warming to 1.5 to 2 degrees. The panel concluded that too little is currently being done to reduce emissions.
