As scientists, we have been ringing the alarm bell about the climate crisis for decades. But governments did not take our warnings seriously, and year after year, emissions continued to rise. Today governments speak of “keeping 1.5°C alive”, while continuing to subsidize fossil fuels and allowing oil and gas explorations across the world. 1.5°C, then, is not alive. Instead, we are moving into uncharted and terrifying territory. “Any further delay in concerted action”, as the latest IPCC report notes, “will miss a brief and rapidly closing window of opportunity to secure a liveable and sustainable future for all.” It is time for scientists to step up and join the forefront of the climate movement to demand emergency action. We have no time to lose.

Scientist Rebellion is an international movement of scientists 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. It is a sister organization of Extinction Rebellion, and respects its principles and values. You can get in touch by emailing
