The real story of Climate Change – from those most affected

December 10, 2007 at 3:34 am 3 comments

Today at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Bali, Oxfam launched “South Voices”, a video with testimonies from 63 people from developing countries who are already feeling the impacts of climate change.

The people featured in the video are already taking action to adapt to climate change, by making drastic changes to the way that they live their lives, but it is not enough, weather patterns are changing too fast. They need support from the rich countries that contributed most to climate change.

They want you to join them and demand action from world leaders. Take the first step – Sign the Climate Change pledge with Oxfam.

Below are just some of the powerful statements showing at the conference right now.

    After doing a case study on Oxfam and its isues with the external environment, its really opened my eyes to what they non profit organisation is working towards. I always saw Oxfam as the little second hand shop in the town but after spending 13 hours today studying its unbeleiveable the size of the organisation and how influencial Oxfam are.

    I was aware of climate change but after listening to the interviews from various people from where they are from, the scary part of this is climate change is here and is really happening.

    We need to make a difference now.
