One Delegate's First Day of COP

Our delegation got a bright and early start for the first day the 20th Conference of Parties (COP20) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). I was especially quick to get out the door because I was fasting from sunrise to sundown as part of the #FastForTheClimate campaign. We were on our way to the shuttle to the conference center by 6:30am. Upon arrival we split up to explore. There’s a space NGOs, a media center building, a space for official country booths, and plenaries, where the meetings that impact all parties take place.

I spent most of my day in the NGO space. At 8am I attended the YOUNGO (Youth NGO) daily meeting. There were several components of this meeting that I really appreciated.

People Power Will Stop This Pipeline

There is a spirit of pipeline resistance spreading across our continent. Ranchers in Nebraska have united to protect their land from the Keystone XL pipeline, while college kids a thousand miles away pulled together XL Dissent, the largest act of youth civil disobedience since the Civil Rights movement to defend their future. Texas Tar Sands Blockade fiercely resisted pipeline construction to the South and, currently, in British Columbia, First Nations communities have formed an unbroken wall of resistance to bitumen bound for the Pacific. Last month, when police arrested five protesters and dismantled a blockade of Enbridge’s Line 9 pipeline in Innerkip, Ontario, another blockade went up in North York that same day. Climate Justice is our movement, and pipeline resistance is the battle that unites movement frontlines across our continent.

Stop accepting climate change, get active.

We’ve probably all heard of the Five Stages of Climate Grief. It has its roots in the Five Stages of Grief, and refers to the emotional processing our society uses to cope with climate change.

First you are in denial. You deny that the earth is warming, you deny the severity of climate change, and you deny that current human activities could cause it.

Next, you become angry that corporations and government have allowed for and financed such reckless exploitation, creating climate chaos; or you are angry that environmentalists are demanding that people change their habits and give up their comforts for the polar bears.

Next, you bargain. We trade scientific fact for political gain, trade carbon credits for a few more years of uncontrolled burning, and trade our logical minds for a monopolized media that will tell us that the science isn’t that serious and we will all be ok.
