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.

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. 

Why is 1.5º such a big deal

and what does it mean?

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 (do by following this link) 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.

what's happening in H&F ? - some of the things we've been doing recently

H&F meetings

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 external speakers from outside the group. The various Working Groups also have meetings; in person when it's safe.

Save Our Scrubs

The HS2 rail project is now threatening Wormwood Scrubs - one of the biggest wild areas in London and right on our doorstep. There will be plenty of action over the coming weeks to stop this destruction.

Meanwhile ...SIGN THIS PETITION:

Barclays Bank is the biggest funder of fossil fuel exploration in the UK. Last year they invested £160b in exploring and digging up fossil fuels. It has to stop .... we are working with other XR groups around the country try to draw attention to their activities - we have visited their branches, staged football matches and there will be more.....

McKinsey is one of the most influential Management Consultants in the World - they have been operating for almost 100 years advising most of  the major corporations and many   governments. We have been visiting their London offices regularly since the end of 2019 asking them to start giving advice that might help save the planet. A year later, and in spite of some fine words .... nothing's changed.

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.

Check out the Animal Rebellion site and find out more. Animal Rebellion is affiliated to XR

Shipping is one of the biggest polluters and one of our planet's biggest problems. Join Ocean Rebellion to help sort it.

🔥 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
