How many crucially important and alarming reports can our federal, state and local governments ignore?  How many political campaign contributions have brought us to this extreme emergency?  How long will governments and people allow fossil fuel businesses to continue killing Mother Earth?  Here is the article about an URGENT report from the United Nations, but very little has been done since the UN issued this report in 2019:


Way back in July 2019 Dahr Jamail was expressing alarm about the climate emergency.  Watch this video:
