Friends of the Earth. Somewhere to stand.
Climate change is the defining challenge of our age. Right now, the poorest people on the planet, who have done least to cause climate change, are already feeling its impact. Ultimately, the survival of human civilization is at stake. According to the scientists the choices humanity makes in the next five years will decide the outcome. Give me somewhere to stand and I will move the earth, Archimedes said. We need to move the world and its leaders. Nothing less than a transformation of our economy and society will prevent climate chaos. This is our generation's anti-slavery campaign, our generation's suffragette movement, our generation's anti-apartheid movement, all rolled into one. Join the campaign for a safe climate. Join the movement for climate justice. Join Friends of the Earth. Somewhere to stand.
