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.
Hi, and welcome to the website of 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.
You’ll find a lot of information here, facts about the Climate and Ecological Emergency, why it’s such a big problem and what you can do about it. You can become a part of XR in many different ways – joining one of the Working Groups is probably the best place to start.
There are WhatsApp groups for new people where you can learn about XR and what we do and also meet other people. The easiest way to do this is to join the Announcements WhatsApp group (do by following this link) which is where messages about various things are posted. Once you are registered on that someone will contact you to explain more about how it all works. You’ll also find plenty of ways you can get support – for example in the Climate Cafe we regularly run.

This film was made by one of our friends in XRHF . There are so many different ways you can act ......
XR H&F has a regular meeting on Tuesday evenings. At the moment these are on ZOOM, but they are an easy way to see what's going on and to find out what you can do if you want to be more involved. We often have speakers from outside the group - recently on Money Rebellion, Share Action and coming up soon on Non-Violence. The various Working Groups also have meetings; in person when it's safe.
LBHF is introducing door collections of composting - our RUBBISH REBELS are supporting this by delivering leaflets to houses in 6 different areas around the borough as a trial. If you'd like more information or can help with some leaflet delivery have a look here.
LOCAL and wider actions
🔥 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.

why is 1.5º such a big deal?
