Crime writers call for climate change action
Written by centralfmnews on September 19, 2019
A group of crime writers from across the world are calling for action to tackle climate change.
It comes as the Bloody Scotland festival gets underway in Stirling tomorrow.
A number of high-profile authors are gathering in the city centre on Saturday lunchtime – demanding “urgent action” to tackle the crisis.
Lin Anderson said: “Schoolchildren and students have taken to the streets in huge numbers. Now they’re asking adults to join them to demand urgent action on climate change.”
Abir Mukherjee said: “Action on climate change may be inconvenient for some – but for the most vulnerable people across the planet, it’s a life or death emergency.”
Bob McDevitt, Director of Bloody Scotland said: “Crime writing is a powerful way of shining a spotlight on society, and many crime writers are passionate about the fight for social justice and tackling inequalities. Bloody Scotland is proud to support the call for climate justice, in highlighting the impacts on those living in the poorest countries if we take no action.”
