Actress Emma Thompson issued a stark warning about the climate crisis, suggesting that conditions may become so dire that people will eat their pets for protein.
The actress delivered a mock weather forecast outside BBC Broadcasting House in England at an Extinction Rebellion protest based in London, where she outlined the “gloomy projections”.
“Climate crisis trends show an increased chance of warmer, wetter winters and hotter, dryer summers, along with an increase of frequency and intensity of extremes,” she said. “Better wrap up warm, stockpile food and remember there is a surprising amount of protein in the average household pet.”
As she stood in front of two maps that showed areas of the U.K. that are at risk of flooding by 2030, the climate activist warned if temperatures continued to rise in the UK there could be a catastrophe.
“Looking ahead, we are on course to sail past our 1.5 degree centigrade target, putting us on track for long-lasting and irreversible change,” the 60 year old actress further stated.
