Stephen Fry Gives Support to Climate Activism

30/07/2022

Raconteur, polymath and well loved television actor Stephen Fry has always used his fame and the love he experiences from the British public to advance causes close to his heart. His openness about his own battles with mental distress have helped blow open the awareness of our emotional wellbeing as a society and many people take inspiration from him in talking openly about their experiences. As a gay man, he has also advocated for individual freedom and for the contribution made to society by minority groups. Now, in a new video release, he explains that he has great sympathy for environmental activism, saying ““Reasonable people, I think, understand that something has to be done about fossil fuels, most of all about our insatiable appetite for them. Our dependency on fossil fuels is making us vulnerable. It’s also compromising the future of our civilisation and many other species on this planet. The crisis is already here. In our fields, in our supermarkets, in politics. 

Now is the time to act.” Mr Fry said that he understood why groups like Extinction Rebellion were taking civil disruption and protest to the streets. His words echo that of the United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres who remarked “Climate activists are sometimes depicted by right wing newspapers as dangerous radicals, but the truly dangerous radicals are the countries that are increasing the production of fossil fuels”.
