Is climate rebellion the future?


Scientists are among the protesters ready for radical action.

Peter Kalmus is a US climate scientist who’s fed up with inaction. Back in April, he chained himself to a bank in protest with a group called Scientist Rebellion. Now, during yet another hot summer in the Northern Hemisphere, with Russia’s war in Ukraine and the ensuing global energy crisis, are growing protests like Peter’s the future? We hear from people demanding – and taking – radical action from around the globe.
