The time for climate action is now. Science is critical in shaping the policies and actions to tackle the global climate change challenge,” said Chair of the IPCC Hoesung Lee.

Scientist Rebellion is an international movement of scientists and scholars who are extremely concerned about the climate and ecological crisis and believe the scientific community has the responsibility to step up and join the forefront of the climate movement.
Unless those who are best placed to understand this crisis behave according to the emergency we live in, we cannot expect the public to do the same.
The latest IPCC report notes “Any further delay in concerted action will miss a brief and rapidly closing window of opportunity to secure a liveable and sustainable future for all.”
We believe that we must expose the reality and severity of the climate and ecological emergency through nonviolent direct actions, including civil disobedience.

In this Splinter meeting we would like to share how we work and what we do. If you want to have a chat with some of us to see if this is a network you would like to join, feel free to stop by at this informative splinter meeting organized by EGU participants who are also member of Scientist Rebellion.
If you would like to participate in a community-wide discussion about different perspectives of climate activism, do not miss the town hall meeting TM12 "Science and Climate activism (part 1): Community debate" on Tuesday at 7 pm in Room L2.
