70] – UNFOLD ZERO [] on Fri., March 4 at 10 AM is stating it is Time for legal action. "Humanity has a brief and rapidly closing window to avoid a hotter, deadly future", says the U.N. Climate Report released earlier this week (Feb 28, 2022). Business as usual is not good enough. It's time for the International Court of Justice to establish a firm legal responsibility of the global community to prevent a climate disaster and to protect the human rights of current and future generations. Climate chaos does not pause for armed conflict.  The Russian invasion of Ukraine has drained political attention and civil society from the existential threat to humanity of climate change. This is understandable as people's lives are on the line right now in Ukraine. But it is also unfortunate. Climate change continues to get worse. Take a short break from peace and anti-war actions to join the next webinar in the series on taking climate change to the International Court of Justice. Sign up at
