"Heading for extinction and what to do about it" by Gail Bradbrook, PhD (50 mins 33 secs)
The film starts out hopeless and hard to hear but ends on a hopeful note. Bradbrook was born in 1972 and grew up in South Elmsall in Yorkshire, England. Her father worked at a mine in South Kirkby. She studied molecular biophysics at the University of Manchester and carried on with a PhD. She carried out post-doctoral work in India and France. In 2015, with George Barda, she set up the group Compassionate Revolution which morphed into Rising Up!, out of which came Extinction Rebellion (XR). She is protesting to raise awareness of the dangers from anthropogenic climate change and believes that only civil disobedience on a large scale can bring about the change that is needed.
