Fossil Fools Day - April 1st

Bob | 25.03.2008 20:19 | Climate Chaos

The International Rising Tide network and its allies are calling for a day of action against the fossil fuel industry on April 1st 2008 FOSSIL FOOLS DAY! Meet Market Square Tram Stop 8am, April 1st for a magical mystery tour to a climate clown near you.

Roll up, roll up! The climate circus is in town. Confronted with melting ice caps, unprecedented species extinction, droughts and extreme weather, climate change threatens our very survival. The fools at the head of the fossil fuel empire continue to plunder the earth, with the governments as willing court jesters at their side.

They would have us believe that we can escape climate change with techno-fixes, market mechanisms and offset schemes - all technocratic acrobatics that distract us from the truth: the only real solution to climate change is to keep fossil fuels in the ground.

On April 1st, 2008, we’re going to turn the tables and show them who the real fools are.

Nationaly people will be targeting fossil fools - See the clowns investing in coal - The carbon offset contortionist or the oily strong man? joining with thousands around the world in taking one step closer to dismantling the fossil fuel industry.

In Nottingham we are going to take action on a local Fossil Fool. We are meeting at Market Square Tram Stop at 8am to head off together on a magical mystery tour to a climate clown near us.
