“The people in power call themselves ‘climate leaders’, as they open up new oil fields, pipelines and coal power plants, granting new oil licenses to explore future oil drilling sites.

“This is the world they are leaving us.” The young woman accompanied her message by retweeting a video of the fire eye in a Campeche Sonda.

Also the leftist senator Bernie Sanders shared images of the event and claimed: “Please do not tell me that ending our dependence on fossil fuels is too radical, THIS is radical.”
