Humanists join climate emergency protest

April 8, 2019

Members of Humanist Society Scotland’s Edinburgh Group joined a Stop Climate Chaos rally at the Scottish Parliament in April 2019.

Les Reid, a member of the Society who attended the rally, said:

Humanists are joining in the campaign to avert Climate Chaos because we know that planet Earth is humanity’s only home. The planet we depend on is heating up due to the greenhouse gases released when fossil fuels are used. Humanists know that no gods are coming to save us. The science is clear – cut emissions urgently, or the whole climate system will run amok. We must all face the challenge to stop wrecking planet Earth before it is too late.

For members interested in our environmental work they can join the Eco-Humanists Scotland group on Facebook, where our activities around Scotland are co-ordinated.
