The 1.5°C climate goal will be breached within 10 years or so. Leading climate scientists overwhelmingly believe there is no way back.

@ScientistRebellion as far as I'm aware, politicians make up only a tiny fraction of earth's population. Shouldn't it be the consumer, that's changing habits?
Is it realistic to force companies into compliance, rather than developing viable alternatives, that consumers prefer, for price, health or other reason?
Oh, that triggers me. 😉
Politicians (especially members of national parliaments, governments and other mighty institutions) belong to a tiny fraction of people with enormous power in comparison to billions of people with very, very little power (power to change society). Comsumers should do something, clearly. But they can only change within certain boundaries which are set by... a tiny fraction of people with power. These have by far most responsibility.
It's funny how we're trying to blame the super rich, when we ourselves are terribly wealthy compared to the rest of the world - according to your link, we output the largest chunk of carbon, of all classes.
"Climate activists" want the rich countries to pay for it - exactly those where the majority of people are on the streets; those where people have the luxury to miss school, and take a day off. Those that buy a new phone every year, and want a car when they turn 18.
