The 2022 climate date is out -- and scientists call it "terrifying".
The 5th hottest year on record (the top 8 have all been since 2014). Hottest year ever in the UK. Hottest summer ever in Europe. "Rain bombs" in Australia. Hurricanes in the US. Arctic temperatures 40°C above average.
This is not normal. And yes, it is terrifying.
But the worst offenders behind it – a rotten, predatory financial sector that has poured an unbelievable $4.6 trillion into fossil fuels since the Paris agreement – are flying completely under the radar.
We're going to change that. SumOfUs has a plan to build a crack team of campaigners and investigators to expose the financial industry’s responsibility for this emergency, then run massive campaigns in the media and with shareholders to force them to change. These giants should be terrified -- not just us. Will you chip in to hold them to account?
