At the Giardini Naxos beach in Taormina, Greenpeace activists unveil a four-meter-high Statue of Liberty replica covered with a life jacket to symbolise the threat that climate change and rising seas pose. In the water, activists in kayaks unfurl flags and banners with the message 'Planet Earth first'. Greenpeace is calling on the G7 leaders to rapidly implement the Paris Climate Agreement, a generation-defining pact signed by nearly 200 countries, and to resolutely move forward despite the threats of US President Trump to abandon the agreement.

Trump just proved that action on climate change is unstoppable

People all across the globe are resisting US President Trump’s attempts to derail action on climate change. Trump’s move to pull the US out of the historic Paris Agreement has been overwhelmingly condemned by government and business leaders the world over. The message to Trump is clear – we will move ahead with or without you.

Climate check in: The counter below shows how long we have left until we will reach 2 C of warming if we continue to pollute as we are now. This is the binding target agreed to by almost 200 countries which we must not exceed if we are to avoid the catastrophic impacts of runaway climate change.

We have even less time (less than five years in fact) to keep the global average temperature rise to below 1.5 C – the level championed by Pacific Island countries on the front-line of climate change impacts (and the inspirational target in the Paris Agreement). This is a constant reminder that there is no time to lose.

The good news is that we have never had more ambition from so many corners of the Earth on the issue of climate change as we do now. This is the first major shock that the Paris Agreement has had to endure, but the global will to fight climate change is stronger than ever. The movement for a safe climate is now unstoppable. And Trump just proved it.

Here’s how the message, #wewillmoveahead, is spreading across the globe:
