TO ACHIEVE A COLLECTIVE HUMAN WILL. CHOOSING THE PATH OF SYMBIOSIS RATHER THAN THAT OF A MINDLESS PARASITE THAT KILLS ITS HOST.
...and it's not going well Promoting a ZERO IMPACT World
"The challenge is simple enough for a 4th-grader to understand: The same fossil fuels that built the modern world are now destroying it." Bill Weir (1967- )

"Everywhere I look, there are opportunities to address climate change, and everywhere I look, we are not doing it." Bill Nye
Our Mission is to achieve a collective human will, choosing the path of symbiosis rather than that of a mindless parasite that kills its host.
Something further to consider is that unlimited population growth cannot be sustained by the planet's ecosystem, even if the ravages of unregulated capitalism are removed. See OVERPOPULATION

TOGETHER IN A CLOSET by the Ecologist
Imagine that a whole big bunch of us is in a closet together. We can make it a big closet, but it’s a closet: with no windows and only one door. And if we open the door, everyone dies. So we must stick it out and survive until tomorrow in this closet together tomorrow. We’ll always have enough air, but if we allow that guy over there to light his cigar, the air will smell like smoke. For a long time. With just that one cigar. We're going to have to make it past tomorrow.
But no one is willing to tell him to cut it out. He smokes one after another, and now the air is getting worse. Someone needs to tell him to stop. Some folks are being sickened by the smoke. It looks like it will have to come to the point that a group of us will get together and make him stop.
That’s what Extinction Rebellion is all about; that’s why they exist today. Greenpeace exists for the same reason. Whiners and deniers say teen Greta Thunberg hasn’t offered one concrete idea about what we should do or how we should do it. Neither has X Rebellion or Greenpeace. They’re all just trying to get us to STOP what we’re doing and how we’re doing it.
Like that group of us who, sooner or later, will make that guy stop lighting his cigars inside our closet.
So, for yourself, what’s it going to be? Sooner? Or later?
"Now is the time for each of us to decide which side of history we are on." Extinction Rebellion, 4/28/19
So for you, what’s it going to be? And when?
"We can no longer continue feeding our addiction to fossil fuels as if there is no tomorrow. For there will be no tomorrow." Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu
