In 2018 the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change warned that we have only 12 years at current global greenhouse gas emissions rates before our chances of limiting global warming to 1.5C are seriously at risk. So we have a brief window in which to act, and to do so with enough force, commitment and ambition to achieve a rapid decarbonisation of the global economy. This lecture will examine the role of recent popular movements in contributing to averting climate catastrophe, including in particular, Extinction Rebellion.
