There are many compelling reasons why we need to clean up the global environment. One of the most pressing is that a polluted environment is a deadly one. Every year, almost 12.6 million people die from diseases associated with environmental hazards, such as air, water or soil pollution, and climate change.

That is one in four deaths worldwide.1 We now know that the single greatest environmental risk to human health is through our most basic need – the air that we breathe. For years, governments have struggled to improve access to energy so they can promote economic development. But the largely unsustainable energy path that the world has followed has come at an unacceptable cost. Air pollution, overwhelmingly resulting from energy production and use, causes heart and lung diseases and cancer, resulting in approximately 6.5 million deaths each year.

Clean air is a human right, the only thing is that it is often quite impossible to get your rights. Politicians do not work for the common good but for those who pay them. Citizens in several countries are looking for legal ways to get their basic rights for clean air, drinkable water etc. 

My impression is that organized civil rights groups are facing the mix of traditional "political"parties and their sponsors; the weapons, fossil fuel, bank-industry. 

Renewal of the political process is needed to deal with enviromental issues, climate change etc. The problem is much bigger then Trump, Clinton, Le Pen or Putin. Calling independent reporting "fake news" is another step towards "totalitarian democracy". 

The idea of "trias politica" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Separation_of_powers that was the basics of both the US and French revolution (1776, 1789) with legisletive, executive and juridical powers seperated has collapsed under the pressure of to much money in to few hands. 

History will provide correction for that-it alwas has.

The new pandemics are man-made and far worse than the 1918 flu-pandemic.
