Extinction Rebellion Podcast Episode 7 - "The Future We Choose", with Christiana Figueres & Tom Rivett-Carnac

In this episode we’re talking to a world leader in the climate movement, Christiana Figueres. Christiana was the Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change from 2010 to 2016 and is credited with securing the Paris Agreement in 2015. She is joined by her co-author Tom Rivett-Carnac, who was her Senior Political Adviser at the UN and now works with her on a podcast called "Outrage and Optimism". Together they wrote 'The Future We Choose". *The Extinction Rebellion Podcast would like to apologise for mistakenly referring to Christiana and Tom's podcast as Global Optimism. The podcast is called "Outrage and Optimism" but can be found on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram @GlobalOptimism.* Extinction Rebellion has three demands. 1) Tell the Truth - Government must tell the truth by declaring a climate and ecological emergency, working with other institutions to communicate the urgency for change. 2) Act Now - Government must act now to halt biodiversi...

Extinction Rebellion Podcast Episode 7 - "The Future We Choose", with Christiana Figueres & Tom Rivett-Carnac

Amitav Ghosh: The Great Derangement - Rebel Book Club (1)

This is the first of a brand new series by the Extinction Rebellion Podcast, with Writers Rebel, looking at iconic green books that shape our understanding of the new world we find ourselves in: after climate change, the sixth mass extinction, and the Ecological Crisis. We are thrilled to begin with "The Great Derangement", which questions the cultural silence around the Climate & Ecological Emergency but also looks at issues of colonialism, and its modern day influence, on the Climate Crisis and beyond. It is a seminal work, though it is better known in the USA; published in 2015 before Extinction Rebellion and the Youth Strikes. Author Amitav Ghosh was born in India but lives in New York, where he is a professor at City University of New York (CUNY). He has written nine novels, the most famous of which is "The Glass Palace". Featuring an interview with Amitav Ghosh and a discussion with Mothiur Rahman (XR Muslims, Guardianship and Visioning Circles); Ami Amlani (XR Walthamstow); M...

Episode 6 - Writers Rebel, with Margaret Atwood

XR & the Police – Extinction Rebellion Podcast Special 2.7

Extinction Rebellion have always had a controversial relationship with the police. During the April Rebellion, there were chants of "we love you" and a practice of liaising with the police before actions. During the October rebellion, this relationship became much more conflictual. This episode tracks those changes and is a prelude to a more in depth podcast, coming this winter. Speakers include Sian Berry (Co-Leader of the Green Party), George Monbiot (The Guardian Columnist), Rupert Read (Extinction Rebellion Spokesperson), XR lawyers, and XR disabled rebels. Extinction Rebellion has three demands. 1) Tell the Truth - Government must tell the truth by declaring a climate and ecological emergency, working with other institutions to communicate the urgency for change. 2) Act Now - Government must act now to halt biodiversity loss and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2025. 3) Beyond Politics - Government must create and be led by the decision of a Citizens' Assembly on climate and ecological justice.

Doctors for XR - Extinction Rebellion Podcast Special 2.6

700 health professionals have joined Doctors for Extinction Rebellion. Why are these pillars of the community willing to take part in civil disobedience, risk arrest, and, for some, glue themselves to government departments? Because, as the GPs in this episode of the Extinction Rebellion Podcast make clear, the climate and ecological emergency is also an impending public health catastrophe. Extinction Rebellion has three demands. 1) Tell the Truth - Government must tell the truth by declaring a climate and ecological emergency, working with other institutions to communicate the urgency for change. 2) Act Now - Government must act now to halt biodiversity loss and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2025. 3) Beyond Politics - Government must create and be led by the decision of a Citizens' Assembly on climate and ecological justice.

Changing the curriculum - Extinction Rebellion Podcast Special 2.5

At the heart of October 2019's International Rebellion in London, as with any other rebellion, are Extinction Rebellion's (XR) Youth. Listen to the day they marched to the Department of Education and demanded a curriculum that meets the unique challenges of this Planetary Emergency. We then speak to Ruth Shallcross, from XR educators, about why she thinks the curriculum needs changing and what those changes might look like. There is strong language in this episode. Extinction Rebellion has three demands. 1) Tell the Truth - Government must tell the truth by declaring a climate and ecological emergency, working with other institutions to communicate the urgency for change. 2) Act Now - Government must act now to halt biodiversity loss and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2025. 3) Beyond Politics - Government must create and be led by the decision of a Citizens' Assembly on climate and ecological justice.

BBC Tell the Truth - Extinction Rebellion Podcast Special 2.4

Extinction Rebellion’s (XR) first demand is that the government and media ‘tell the truth’ about the climate and ecological emergency. In pursuit of this, on Friday the 11th of October 2019, hundreds of XR activists descended on the BBC’s HQ at Broadcasting House in London. In this episode, the Extinction Rebellion Podcast explores the motives of those activists and why pressure is growing on the BBC and all broadcasters and media outlets to radically improve their coverage of what the IPCC declares is an emergency. It also features testimony from an ex BBC Radio 4 Producer, now XR activist. Extinction Rebellion has three demands. 1) Tell the Truth - Government must tell the truth by declaring a climate and ecological emergency, working with other institutions to communicate the urgency for change. 2) Act Now - Government must act now to halt biodiversity loss and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2025. 3) Beyond Politics - Government must create and be led by the decision of a Citizens' Assembly on climate and ecological justice.
