No One is Immune to Climate Change - Banner Drop

Worthing Extinction Rebellion (XR) performed a thought and action provoking banner drop at 6am this morning on Worthing Pier. XR said "The world is way off track to stop run away climate and ecological breakdown. Worthing is a seaside town and sea rise levels are predicted to flood many areas. We must Act Now."

Link here: https://coastal.climatecentral.org/map/11/-0.3506/51.0052/?theme=sea_level_rise&map_type=coastal_dem_comparison&contiguous=true&elevation_model=best_available&forecast_year=2030&pathway=rcp85&percentile=p95&return_level=return_level_1&slr_model=kopp_2014

Worthing XR state that most Paris Climate Agreement pledges have been broken. "We will pass 1.5' warming in the next five years and the governments own Climate Change Committee report predicts a 4' warming by 2100. A world not fit for habitation by any living species."

They urge that the catastrophic effects on human society and the natural world may spiral out of control if the Climate and Ecological Emergency is not addressed in time, including
⦁ Biodiversity Loss
⦁ Sea level rise
⦁ Desertification
⦁ Wildfires
⦁ Water shortage
⦁ Crop failure
⦁ Extreme weather

The combined result of these destabilising events will be:
⦁ Millions displaced
⦁ Disease
⦁ Increased risk of wars and conflicts
⦁ Impacts on human rights

The aim of the banner drop is to provoke thought and action amongst Worthing people because "We are in a planetary emergency. We must immediately begin improving carbon absorption, reduce emissions and stop the harm we are causing to the natural world." They state that "The task before us is daunting but we have proved big changes can be made during the Covid19 pandemic. We must Act Now."
