Tackling global warming is a fight for the survival of humanity. That is the stark warning from the International Socialists meeting in Greece this week. There were numerous speeches listing possible apocalyptic consequences and a call to action from the President of the International Socialists, George Papandreou.
“We Socialists and Democrats know deep in our hearts that there is another choice. There is another way. We have viable and better alternatives. We can solve global warming. We can find renewable energy sources. We can make poverty history. We can educate all our citizens,” he said.
More than 150 international parties and organisations are represented at the meeting.
