Calls to Declare a Climate Emergency
Greenpeace Australia Pacific is calling Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Opposition leader Bill Shorten to follow the UK’s lead and declare a Climate and Environment Emergency. The UK move comes in the wake of disruptive dissent action led by climate change activist group Extinction Rebellion. Is civil disobedience a new tactic of climate activism or has it always been part of the movement in some way? We were joined on The Daily by Greenpeace Australia Pacific Campaigner, Alix Foster Vander Elst to discuss this.
