Heading for Extinction

“What we want to do is save humanity from extinction”, Prof. Jeffery, Behavioural Neuroscience

This seminal XR Talk is written and presented by Prof Kate Jeffery, a Behavioural Neuroscientist at UCL. The lecture encapsulates Extinction Rebellion’s raison d’être: the questions of ‘Why? the movement has evolved, based upon compelling scientific evidence that global warming and ecological degradation are advancing, unabated: it is the truth being told of the unfolding trauma of the sixth mass extinction and ecocide as a direct consequence of human activity. Prof Kate Jeffery explains what needs to be done to avert complete and irreversible ecological and societal collapse; Kate touches on the awe, shock and grief of when we, ourselves, are faced with the prospect of our own extinction through the line of future generations. Finally, we are presented with Extinction Rebellion’s 3rd demand: on ‘How?’ this climate and ecological emergency has to be addressed through the collective, fully informed -when the truth -be-told- will of the UK citizenry, in the form of a national citizens’ assembly. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U_gXMofQb0E
