Crude Awakening - Get Over it

Ten targets One thousand people One crude awakening Floods in Pakistan -- Drought in Russia -- Huge glaciers breaking up in Greenland Our climate system is rapidly sliding into crisis, as oil companies destroy people's lives and the environment to keep sucking up their profits. Oil saturates every aspect of our lives. Oil profits lubricate the financial markets and its sponsorship clings like a bad smell to our cultural institutions. It flows through pipelines to the pumps, airports and factories of our cities. The failure of the UN COP15 process showed us -- if there was ever any doubt -- that government and industry can't tackle climate change. It's up to us and it's time to up the ante. As a movement, our actions against coal and aviation have made a real difference. Now oil's time is up. Together, on October 16, let's give the oil industry a really Crude Awakening. http://crudeawakening.org.uk http://www.youandifilms.com
