The Climate Clock shows two numbers. The first, in red, is a timer, counting down how long it will take, at current rates of emissions, to burn through our “carbon budget” — the amount of CO2 that can still be released into the atmosphere while limiting global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. This is our deadline. The second number is our lifeline. We have to get the second number to 100% before the first one gets to zero.

Welcome to Extinction Rebellion Hammersmith & Fulham; thanks for being here. If you are concerned about the Climate and Ecological Emergency then you’re in the right place. GET IN TOUCH firstname.lastname@example.org or through WhatsApp
Our movement is based on science. The science behind the Climate and Ecological Emergency is unequivocal. There is a disaster looming, and it is of our making. If you want to know more, look at the information here.
You can join in with XR in many different ways – as well as local groups (like Hammersmith & Fulham) there are different community groups and other affiliated organisations. If you are new to XR there is a 'buddy' programme which will explain more and help you meet other people and find a good place to help. Within H&F we organise ourselves into Working Groups and communicate mainly though WhatsApp groups. The easiest way to start this is to join the Announcements WhatsApp group (contact us if you would like to join) which is where messages about various things are posted. You’ll also find plenty of ways you can get support – for example in the Climate Cafe we regularly run. If you want an overview of what XR is all about - have a look at this video.

Government (and media) must tell the truth about the climate and ecological emergency (CEE), must include telling the truth about plant-based food system. Animal Rebellion recognizes that one cannot speak about the CEE without openly talking about the impacts of animal agriculture on the planet, including but not limited to: deforestation, ocean dead-zones, biodiversity loss and air pollution.

🔥 The climate and ecological emergency is still getting worse. Racism and exploitation of poorer nations is still rife. Most of our ‘free’ press is still captive to the will of a few billionaires.
☠️ We cannot halt any of these crises without changing the economic system that fuels them.
There are lots of ways you can help
