Whoopi Goldberg and XR call for climate action on Environment Day

Madrid / American actress Whoopi Goldberg and Extinction Rebellion launch a global campaign to call for action and show “how people came together to save the world from the climate crisis,” in an audiovisual piece showing a hypothetical future in 2050.

On the occasion of the celebration of World Environment Day this Friday, the video ‘The Gigantic Change’ has been released live through the social networks of Extinction Rebellion.

“As we begin to plan how to rebuild our world after COVID-19, the film shows that a brighter future is really possible,” the conservation association explains in a press release.

For that future to be possible, “we all must take action today, the need for collective action has never been so great: climate change is an existential threat to people of all ages and origins,” they point out.

The history of the planet

“Once upon a time there was a planet on the brink of destruction, people were killing with greed,” are the words that start the story that a grandmother, to whom Goldberg puts a voice, tells her granddaughter before sleeping, in the video of the Bell.

The story relates how “the planet was dying and nobody cared, the earth was dying and very very scared”, and, sadly, the grandmother asks her granddaughter to finish the story.

This, with the voice of Livia Nelson, takes up the story to imagine that “one day people realized that all those things were really bad, they wanted to change things.”

At first it was not easy, explains the girl, but then “more and more people agreed, and together they planted trees and pretty plants all over the world; they all stopped doing all those horrible things they used to do and started taking care of the planet. ”

After this optimistic outcome, the girl asks the grandmother “if at least people tried all those things”, to which Goldberg responds: “let’s wait”.

According to data from the Extinction Rebellion, “following the current path”, in 2050 “up to a billion people will be displaced, and almost half of the species on Earth will become extinct.”

“This does not have to be our future, you can make a difference by taking action today” is the final message of the campaign. (June 5, 2020, EFE / PracticaEspañol)
