Polly Higgins believes, when it is right to speak out and shine a light on a dark corner.
“Such are the consequences of our current business practices that we are now on a course that spells disaster for humanity and the Earth. To ignore the warning issued by the OECD last week – that current policy will increase the Earth’s temperature 3 or more degrees by 2100 – is in fact a breach of our human right to life.
“However, I believe we can change our course very fast. This week I have submitted to all governments a concept paper, entitled Closing the door to dangerous industrial activity.”
Polly Higgins is also giving the annual Rachel Carson Memorial lecture in London on 30th March.
