#BreakingNews All operations against deforestation in the Amazon will be halted starting on Monday, the Brazilian government has just said. The announcement was made on the same day as #ClimateStrike. We'll tell you more in this thread 🧵
We write a lot about how the Amazon suffers with deforestation and fire. One year ago, there was ‘Fire Day’, against which no one was charged:…
We also revealed how meatpacking companies like @JBS are buying animals from ranchers who invade indigenous lands in the Amazon. Our story showed that there is still no guarantee that meat from any meatpacker is 100% deforestation-free:…

This week I'll be covering youth-led marches in Baltimore inspired by the national protests for #GeorgeFloyd and #blacklivesmatter.

It's important to remember this fight isn't new for for the city's youth 👇🏼(a thread)
Earlier this year youth with the @AlgebraProject and other groups marched in support of an overhaul of the state's education system + increased school funding, which the Gov. later vetoed citing #covid_19

Here's more on the ongoing @NAACP_LDF and @ACLU_MD lawsuit demanding Maryland stop underfunding Baltimore schools:

We can’t solve a crisis without treating it as a crisis and we must unite behind experts and science.
This of course goes for all crises.

Now the experts urge us to avoid big public gatherings for a better chance to #flattenthecurve and slow the spreading of the Coronavirus. 1/4
So I personally recommend that we do as the experts say. Especially in high-risk areas.

We young people are the least affected by this virus but it’s essential that we act in solidarity with the most vulnerable and that we act in the best interest of our common society. 2/4
The climate and ecological crisis is the biggest crisis humanity has ever faced but for now (of course depending on where you live) we’ll have to find new ways to create public awareness & advocate for change that don’t involve too big crowds - listen to local authorities. 3/4

A little thread about today #climatestrike in #brussels
Awfully rainy. Fresh. Virus threat.
Still a few thousand people joining . A mix of old militants and young people.
Talked with a few young people and asked them why so few came.
They answered they either don't care or
think the fight is lost ,or not winnable.
Seems we need to go to #Instagram to reach them.
How to talk about methane on IM? i don't know .
Will #Greta manage to lift the energy of 1 billion young people? it's so much to ask from 1 person.
I fear we are losing the battle.
If politicians don't react soon, the bond between generations will disappear.
There's really a deluge of risks and problems facing us and around us.
If americans pick #trump or #biden, then hope will be gone.
What will be left?
I am heartbroken. We need to turn the tide.

Congressman John Lewis once said “Do not get lost in a sea of despair. Be hopeful, be optimistic.”

What makes you hopeful? Seriously. Share it!

If you’re like me, you could use a few reasons to keep your head up.

Here are 50 reasons to stay hopeful from the past 3+ years.
50. On Jan. 28, 2017, thousands showed up to airports in support of Muslim families impacted by Trump’s unconstitutional #MuslimBan.

That night, a federal judge in NY issued a stay allowing people stranded in airports to temporarily avoid deportation.

49. Much to the dismay of Donald Trump, #Parasite won Best Picture at the Oscars, making it the first non-English language film to win in the 92 years of the Academy Awards.

Winnipeg City Hall adult ally #ClimateStrike

Week 27

So this is my worst Strike selfie yet - accidental shot while struggling to hold the ph for the pic at which point my camera died ;)

Thread incoming, will be pauses while I type
Disclaimer - everything I say here has already said, by better writers (often Indigenous) & by more knowledgable ppl (often Indigenous).

None of this should be taken as my own original thoughts, tho is not the fault or deficiency of the original thinkers if I get anything wrong.
Hello World, we need to talk about Canada.

I'm doing this in the context of my #FridaysForFuture #ClimateStrike, because the Winnipeg youth Climate Strike group, @mbyouth4climate, has been very involved in #WetsuwetenSolidarity #ShutDownCanada actions.

2010: I finished HS and my 1st college term
2019: Fresh PhD, 4 mo. into my new role at @TheBTI.

Underlines for me that 2020s decarbonization + climate science work will be driven by people either *already* in field or *maybe* a lucky few who enter it in next ~5 yrs. (1/2) ImageImage
Our bold climate youth are an inspiration, but they can only do so much. Virtually all of the heavy lifting on climate this decade will be done by those already of age today. Don't burden the next gen with your hope for climate progress in 2020s - that's largely up to us. (2/2)
(All my fierce student activism aside, I felt relegated to the sidelines for the '10s. Youths today can likely relate strongly. We'll see what my impact is in the '20s, but we must work hard on behalf of youths left desperately trying to contribute via mvmts like #ClimateStrike)

So, msg from my 35 yrs of research on Cdn env policy: When officials say they seek to "balance the economy and the environment," here's what they really mean: 1/n #abpoli @EdmontonJournal #cdnpoli…
@edmontonjournal They mean that the private sector will set the limits of the regulation according to the cost they are willing to pay without sacrificing profit. A proposed threshold above this "bottom line" will provoke threats of disinvestment. @JonathanWNV @cathmckenna @JustinTrudeau 2/n
@edmontonjournal @JonathanWNV @cathmckenna @JustinTrudeau Env regulation is almost never consistent with what science tells us we need to do, with the precautionary principle, or with the requirements of social justice. 3/n @350 @Ippc2019 @JonathanWNV #ClimateStrike

I was asked to look at a "Billie Eilish Pirate Baird O'Connell" I hadn't ever heard of this celeb before but of course I do notice the 3 six letter names right away. Billie .6. Eilish .6. Pirate .6. A typical "promote me" kind of name comm. #Qanon
Her other names also have comms in there - "O'Connell" - "owe" - Note this pic from the Rothschild that apparantly made her famous. Names can at times be a roadmap to purpose in comms.
That includes the "Connel" part of the name as in "conning"- apparantly she's known for being a massive environmentalist -particuarly propping up Greta Thunberg and the #ClimateStrike - note the money behind Greta is literally the same as Billie #QAnon

Thoughts of a 17-year old on #COP25:

First of all, there is very little international news coverage, which makes it hard for people who were not at COP, or involved in the environmental moment, to know what’s going on at the place that’s is supposed to define climate ambition
So let me break it down for you:

1) Only *one* big polluter, the UK, released a plan to cut carbon emissions by 2050

2) Article 6, which decides whether or not “human rights” are to be included in carbon markets, was inconclusive. Hint: human rights are a *must*
3) Endesa, the biggest polluter in Spain, was a diamond sponsor of COP25. If you ask me, they just wanted to greenwash their pollution.

This was my very last experience of #COP25. As luck would have it I was on my way to the exit just as the #climatestrike inside the venue began. I stashed my suitcase in a corner and sat in the floor with hundreds of others.
And some of the tears that I haven't let flow all week finally did during this song, when all the young voices joined in. They are so young and so beautiful, these children and youth from all over our incredible planet.
All they are asking is to be given something I took for granted at their age, a stable biosphere, the precondition for everything else that I may have made of my life.

🌎The Week In Climate 2nd -8th Dec🌍

From #COP25Madrid to new climate forecasting models being analysed, as well as lots in the realm of politics, we have a lot of ground to cover.

Let's start with ...

1 - @GretaThunberg & other activists have had an overwhelming presence at #COP25Madrid. Also, African countries - lowest historical emissions, but most vulnerable to climate change - have sent 4 of the largest 10 delegations…

A new thread as #COP25 begins.
I am totally fed up with the messages about 1.5C or 2 C warming
And fed up with the "Lalaland" way of thinking that "we are about to cut emissions"
So i decided to sum up the data i call this BULLSHIT
It's time for all to WAKE UP
Please RT
Let's have a look at every sector emitting Co2 or methane

My analysis on potential #runawayclimatechange and the #IPCC goal of 1.5-2C target
And why/how i expect nasty surprises soon
First, a chart with trend lines showing warming speeding up

Why warmer soon? several factors
1/ the SUN
Sun is waking up, with solar spots appearing , and the solar minimum period is ending , with a weak solar maximum expected in 2023 .

Yes. This is beyond grotesque. Klein references a Bolivian initiative under the Morales gov't - as a lure to promote the GND - without a single acknowledgment to the coup itself.

What Klein does not reference is far more compelling: the 2010 People's Agreement of Cochabamba.
The Cochabamba People's Agreement (April 2010) came out of the Bolivian World People's Conference on Climate Change and the Rights of Mother Earth conference. It was Indigenous-led, with people attending from around the world. #Bolivia…
#Whiteness and racism played a key role at this conference.

350's (Klein serves on the board) sole purpose for attending the conference in Bolivia was to literally undermine the host country’s official policy position on climate change (300 ppm, 1ºC limit, etc.)

#ClimateStrike today @GretaThunberg. An old lady told us that we were breaking the law, told us to "to fucking move" and was incredibly aggressive. This was unpleasant, BUT it highlighted how lucky I am. There are strikers who face arrest or attack simply for speaking out (1/...)
@MakichyanA @NlocyJ @howey_ou and SO MANY MORE incredibly brave people from indigenous communities and countries with repressive regimes deal with fear of real consequences every day. It may be unpleasant to be shouted at, but it highlights my privilege and how lucky we are(2/..)
We as climate activists in the west have a duty to amplify the voices of those who aren't being heard and who aren't given the opportunity to even speak. If I'm shaking after a crazy old lady hurls obscenities at me, how must it feel to be to live in fear? #ClimateJustice

An iconic SF film set in the city of Angels, November 2019. The devil winds set a city on fire. A prophet @GretaThunberg from the melting Arctic rallies striking teenagers on the burning Pacific. What could be more #BladeRunner as the Future collides with the Present?
Greta's made it from the Pacific coast to Portugal powered by the sun, wind & sea in just a month! Safe, and fashionably late.#COP25
Greta on Gramscian carbon war of position:"there is no victory coz the only thing we want to see is action & real action hasn't been happening. So of course we have achieved a lot but if you look at it from a certain point of view we have achieved nothing"…
