Many people in the climate movement wonder why it’s so hard to get our message through. Could part of the problem be buried in the very language we use?

In this episode we’re talking to Jeremy Lent, the author of The Patterning Instinct: A Cultural History of Humanity’s Search for Meaning. His work investigates the patterns of thought that have led our civilization to its current crisis of sustainability. In this conversation we discuss the key metaphors that govern how we think and why we need a paradigm shift.

Extinction Rebellion has three demands.

1) Tell the Truth – Government must tell the truth by declaring a climate and ecological emergency, working with other institutions to communicate the urgency for change.

2) Act Now – Government must act now to halt biodiversity loss and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2025.

3) Beyond Politics – Government must create and be led by the decision of a Citizens’ Assembly on climate and ecological justice.

We live in a society addicted to growth, yet on a planet with finite resources. Something needs to give. The Extinction Rebellion Podcast talks to a star of the degrowth movement, Jason Hickel.

Jason is an academic and the author of The Divide and the upcoming book, Less is More: Why Degrowth Will Save the World.

We need to act now if we want to avoid overwhelming climate and ecological breakdown. So why does the government tell us we’ve got until 2050?

In this episode we’re exploring the government’s 2050 net zero emissions target and why that timeline endangers not only humans, but every other species on the planet.

We’ll talk about the science that shows us we need to act much sooner, and discuss some of the political and economic obstacles to achieving a more ambitious target - like Extinction Rebellion's second demand to halt biodiversity loss & achieve net zero emissions by 2025.

You’ll hear a conversation from the October 2019 Rebellion with Scientists for XR, including Kate Jeffrey, a Professor of Behavioural Neuroscience at University College London; Scott Archer-Nicholls, an Atmospheric Chemist at the University of Cambridge; Peter Spooner, a Paleoclimate Researcher at University College London; and Sven, a project director for climate change adaptation projects.

This episode also features a discussion with Professor Kevin Anderson, a Professor of Energy and Climate Change. He holds a joint chair in the School of Engineering at the University of Manchester and the Centre for Sustainability and the Environment at Uppsala University in Sweden.

Economics is not a side show in our lives. The coronavirus has shown that.

But, what comes next?

This episode is all about empowering you to take on one of the main influencers of our economy, and therefore the planet – the Finance Sector – through education and activism.

We talk to Vince Knowles and Rathbone Greenbank Investments about the investment industry; University of Bristol Professors Alvin Birdi and Chris Preist about the insurance industry; and XR Money Rebellion about what you can do.

This episode was recorded outside an XR Finance learn in, in Bristol, on Saturday March 7th.

In this episode we’re talking to a world leader in the climate movement, Christiana Figueres. Christiana was the Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change from 2010 to 2016 and is credited with securing the Paris Agreement in 2015.

She is joined by her co-author Tom Rivett-Carnac, who was her Senior Political Adviser at the UN and now works with her on a podcast called "Outrage and Optimism". Together they wrote 'The Future We Choose".

*The Extinction Rebellion Podcast would like to apologise for mistakenly referring to Christiana and Tom's podcast as Global Optimism. The podcast is called "Outrage and Optimism" but can be found on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram @GlobalOptimism.*

This is the first of a brand new series by the Extinction Rebellion Podcast, with Writers Rebel, looking at iconic green books that shape our understanding of the new world we find ourselves in: after climate change, the sixth mass extinction, and the Ecological Crisis.

We are thrilled to begin with "The Great Derangement", which questions the cultural silence around the Climate & Ecological Emergency but also looks at issues of colonialism, and its modern day influence, on the Climate Crisis and beyond. It is a seminal work, though it is better known in the USA; published in 2015 before Extinction Rebellion and the Youth Strikes.

Author Amitav Ghosh was born in India but lives in New York, where he is a professor at City University of New York (CUNY). He has written nine novels, the most famous of which is "The Glass Palace".

Featuring an interview with Amitav Ghosh and a discussion with Mothiur Rahman (XR Muslims, Guardianship and Visioning Circles); Ami Amlani (XR Walthamstow); Miles Glyn and Paul John Nelson (XR Arts). Our rebels met in the back room of the Ridley Street social club to discuss the novel over some beers.

Next month’s book will be: David Wallace-Wells' "The Uninhabitable Earth".

Extinction Rebellion have always had a controversial relationship with the police.
During the April Rebellion, there were chants of "we love you" and a practice of liaising with the police before actions.
During the October rebellion, this relationship became much more conflictual.
This episode tracks those changes and is a prelude to a more in depth podcast, coming this winter.

Speakers include Sian Berry (Co-Leader of the Green Party), George Monbiot (The Guardian Columnist), Rupert Read (Extinction Rebellion Spokesperson), XR lawyers, and XR disabled rebels.
