Dr. Rupert Read is teaching Philosophy at the University of East Anglia. He is a long time Green Party politician.
In October 2018 Read declared himself a supporter of Extinction Rebellion, an environmental direct action group, and became a signatory of their open letters published in The Guardian.
Vandana Shiva, Naomi Klein, Noam Chomsky, Bill McKibben and many more also signed on to that letter in support of Extinction Rebellion.
Acting as one of Extinction Rebellion's spokespersons, Rupert Read gave a number of interviews on national news programs and was part of the Extinction Rebellion group invited to meet with the British Environment Secretary to discuss their demands. The following day the UK Parliament declared a "climate change emergency".

Rupert Read was also one of over 200 academics to sign an open letter of support for the School strike for climate – a movement where children walk out of schools to demand action on climate change.
In this talk Rupert Read explains that the Paris Agreement will fail and that we are facing a societal collapse. He goes through three scenarios.
This radio program is based on Rupert Read's talk: This Civilization is Finished: So what is to be done? Filmed at Churchill College, University of Cambridge, UK, on Nov. 7, 2018.
