As long as I can remember I’ve stood up for what I know is right. I’ve spent countless hours, days, years even, trying to be a voice for those without and break free from traditional ways of doing. I’ve coped my fair share of backlash from friends, family and strangers for this.
But there comes a time when enough is enough. There comes a time when you pick up your phone, tap into the internet and stop to ask yourself, is this all worth it? #ExtinctionRebelion

To save human civilization, we need to panic and act NOW!

(A thread with simple explanations on why climate change is happening and its impact on our survival as a species)

1/ Important concepts to understand (that I'll expand in the thread):

- Where does CO2 in atmosphere come from
- Why CO2 in atmosphere makes the climate warmer
- Under which conditions did humans evolve in last 100k years
- What future conditions does warmer climate create

- What feedback loops accelerate warming
- How do scientists predict future warming
- How to interpret the probabilities of catastrophic events
- What's needed to prevent a collapse

It's going to be a LOOONG thread.

Fasten your seat belts, hold your seats. Let's go!

Let me make a few clear points that really need to be made about this #ExtinctionRebelion gibberish. Firstly, it’s a left wing pushed illegal protesting with the ultimate aim of destroying capitalism. The irony in that is most capitalist nations have the lowest carbon footprints
Secondly, the demands placed on the government was to make changes by 2025 - a commitment they’ve already made. These illegal protests are disturbing the lives of people that can’t afford the time and money they are losing because of these individuals actions.
Making huge traffic jams will also make the situation WORSE so the actions taken are actually detrimental to the cause they are trying to promote immediate actions to reverse/resolve. So far there’s just shy of 200 arrests.

"The curious incident of the denialist in the Anthropocene" (with apologies to @mark_haddon & A. Conan Doyle). We are in week 4 since #ExtinctionRebelion's resounding Declaration in London, & the most terrifying is what hasn't happened. Thread (sorry). 1/
The terrifying thing that hasn't happened is that no one has told us we are wrong.
Scientists (myself included) are raising the alarm. Politicians, journalists and the public agree on #ClimateBreakdown is an immense problem, even if some don't agree with tactics or targets. 2/
Just a couple of years ago, the denialists and fossil-fuel lobbies would have been out in full force, denying the urgency of climate change, denying the rapid and radical measures that are necessary to fight it. I am sure they are still out there, inventing new lies. 3/
