Keep climate change crisis on the front burner

The Guyana Government should call on UN Summit for International Corporate Accountability for Climate Crisis. Our national level response to the climate crisis is ambivalent. As individuals, we watch each mega-storm with episodic dread, then get on with daily life without much thought about the climate, until the next one.

As a society, we have a similar response: on one hand we make big gestures—create Iwokrama, protect forests under the REDD+ programme, place two million hectares of land under protected areas, but on a daily basis routinely ignore the consequences of violations of building codes, pesticide use and garbage disposal.
