Description

On this week’s edition of Sustainability Now!, your host, Justin Mog, superglues himself behind the microphone for a conversation with Alice Melendez, Extinction Rebellion Kentucky's Lexington-based organizer. XR KY is part of the global movement to take back our future from corporate greed and kamikaze leaders who refuse to take action to tackle the greatest crisis facing humanity. If we don’t take swift action to divorce humanity from fossil fuels, humans will be part of the mass extinction we have already unleashed on planet Earth. Listen as Alice describes her coalition work to resist the proposed Appalachian storage hub for natural gas liquids, to support the people’s agenda and a citizen-based counter-balance to City Hall, and to organize Kentuckians for participation in the Global Climate Strike on September 20th, 2019.

While Extinction Rebellion was launched in London in November 2018, it has spread across the globe. Nationally, a XR groups in half dozen cities have done arrestable actions and there are chapters in over a dozen places around the country.
