200 artists and intellectuals signed a manifesto for the Earth

The manifesto, which seeks to raise awareness about the problem of climate change and its effects on the Earth, published on September 4 in the famous French newspaper Le Monde, was signed by celebrities such as filmmakers Win Wenders and Pedro Almodóvar.

Through the French newspaper Le Monde, 200 artists and different personalities among which are Pedro Almodóvar, Isabel Coixet, Juliette Binoche, Jude Law, Isabella Rossellini, Wim Wenders, David Cronenberg, Isabelle Adjani, Alain Delon, Laetitia Casta and John Turturrose , among others, spoke on September 4 to make a global call to save planet Earth. It is "humanity's greatest challenge," they wrote.

“We are experiencing a planetary cataclysm. Climate warming, drastic reduction of living spaces, collapse of biodiversity, deep contamination of the soil, water and air, rapid deforestation ”, are some of the statements with which the artists denounced the serious current state of the planet.

The message was clear and forceful for the current governments of the world that still do not prioritize the problem of climate change in their agendas. “It is a question of survival that, by definition, cannot be secondary. "We believe that a government that does not make the safeguarding of what remains a priority cannot be taken seriously," they assured, "at the current rate, in a few decades there will be hardly anything left" and argue that humans and most of living spaces are in a critical situation. Despite this, they consider that “it is not too late to avoid (…) the sixth mass extinction”, for which it is necessary that “all political action” goes in the direction of “fighting against the cataclysm”.
