Stars consisting of Madonna and Barbra Streisand are calling for global financial and cultural change to prevent another eco-friendly catastrophe like the Covid-19 pandemic.
Around 200 researchers and artists consisting of Robert De Niro, Joaquin Phoenix, Juliette Binoche, Cate Blanchett, Marion Cotillard, Olivia Wilde, Sting, and Iggy Pop have actually signed an op-ed in French paper Le Monde entitled, “No to a return to normal.”
The post starts: “The Covid-19 pandemic is a catastrophe. This crisis, nevertheless, has the virtue of welcoming us to deal with the necessary concerns. The evaluation is easy: the ‘modifications’ are no longer enough, the problem is systemic.
” The present eco-friendly catastrophe is a ‘meta-crisis’: the enormous termination of life on Earth is no longer in doubt and all signs indicate a direct existential risk. Unlike a pandemic, as major as it is, it is a global collapse whose repercussions will be beyond procedure.
“We therefore solemnly call on leaders and citizens to get out of the untenable logic that still prevails, to finally work on a deep overhaul of objectives, values ??and savings.”
The op-ed went on to declare that consumerism “has led us to deny life in itself” and that contamination, global warming, and environment damage have actually led the world to “breaking point”.
It concluded: “The radical transformation that is required – at all levels – requires audacity and courage. It will not take place without a massive and determined commitment. When are the acts? It is a matter of survival, as much as dignity and consistency.”
Other fans of the op-ed consist of Jane Fonda, Alfonso Cuaron, Vanessa Paradis, Pedro Almodovar, Willem Dafoe, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, Ralph Fiennes, Julianne Moore, and Marianne Faithfull, who has actually fought Covid-19 herself.
