climate indymedia

The facts speak for themselves.

2005 was the hottest year on record in the northern hemisphere. The ten hottest years on record have all been in the last fifteen.

The Thames Barrier was completed in 1983; it has had to be raised against tidal surge more times in the last five years than in the previous eighteen.

If we're to have any hope of finding a solution to the problems of climate change, we can't wait for those at the top to take the lead nor merely change our own individual lives, we have to co-ordinate info and action.

Taking the successful grassroots Indymedia format and applying it to the most important issue of our time, the new Climate Indymedia site compiles mass-media reports with direct action write-ups and activist inspiration and networking.

Also worthy of a mention, the Rising Tide network of small groups and individuals. The RT site has loads of resources and info as well as ideas and info on doing something about it all.
