Climate Justice Now

The Philippines emits 0.9 metric tons of carbon per capita. The United States emits 17.6. But the people of the Philippines are now enduring the terrible results of the strongest storm ever measured. Evidence shows that climate change is increasing the frequency and intensity of tropical storms.

The Philippines' climate chief Naderev "Yeb" Saño is engaged in a hunger strike at the climate talks now underway in Warsaw, Poland. He's protesting the refusal of the United States and other polluting nations to take serious action.
