In 2018 I created an ongoing #ClimateEd thread about the #ClimateCrisis.

Five years later, it's time for an update.✅

This #ClimateAction thread has a TON of info to help EVERYONE get #ClimateBrainy about the #science and facts of #climatechange.📊

Save, share and visit often! Image
Here's the old thread, which I'll no longer be updating:

It still contains MANY informative articles and links from reputable sources, so it's worth revisiting, even if some info isn't all that up-to-date.

The old tag was #Climate_Ed.

New: #ClimateEd👍
This NEW thread will contain PLENTY of top-tier posts from MANY solid #climatescience contributors, so come back regularly to see what's been added.

#Climatebrawl folks especially, as you can use these posts to #refute #deniers handily.

Don't argue with any trolls, however! 🧌 Image

It's a fact: The USA has a gun problem & a
#GunViolence problem that NO other developed
western democracy has -- even though they also have the same mental, social, addiction problems.

#DemVoice1 #WisDems…
We can do better! But, the #GOP perpetuate myths about gun violence & gun ownership.

We need to end the myths. #FactsMatter

O embuste da capa falsa da #Playboy francesa q ainda está a ser partilhada nas redes e por alguns media nacionais e internacionais, incluindo impressos, reforça a importância da #verificação do q vem à rede: #factcheck #factosalternativos #MarlèneSchiappa
No jornalismo é fundamental ter espírito crítico e conhecer (e aplicar) técnicas básicas de #verificação. Neste caso, bastava analisar a alegada capa para detectar erros básicos de fotografia/design e incongruências com outras imagens que circulavam. #factcheck
Quem fizesse uma pesquisa em medias franceses perceberia que apenas era conhecido o topo desta edição da revista:…, bem como algumas (alegadas) fotos da sessão:… #factcheck

Anyone claiming the "market is rigged" or blames "naked shorts," "synthetics" or "counterfeit shares" genuinely has no clue what they're talking about.

At no time in history has the stock market ever been freer and fairer to retail investors.
Thanks to competition & PFOF, virtually all online brokerages have done away with commission fees (sans options contracts) and minimum deposit requirements. Anyone has the opportunity to put any amount of money to work on Wall Street.
"But PFOF is hurting retail"

No it's not. Instead of giving up $10-$20 on a round-trip trade, you're potentially losing fractions of a cent. You don't have to be a math genius to realize saving $10 or $20 is greater than a fraction of a penny.

@JennMcClellanVA @VASenateDems you have lost all @reason & disregard #Science Racism is serious, impacting many areas of life for black people. But racism is NOT the cause of EVERY problem, health or other, in black people's lives. That is disempowering victim consciousness.
Actually, though racism impacts access to insurance & care, there are known genetic factors that have direct impact on specific diseases, true for all different racial & ethnic groups. @VASenateDems @JennMcClellanVA

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”
Have you ever really stopped to really analyze this quote by George Santayana? Have you thought about it this way? #SaturdaySocial 🧵
George Santayana wrote this quote in 1905. 1905! Think about this a moment. This quote about the importance of remembering history so as not to repeat the mistakes of the past was written before WWI and WWII. We were slow to learn, but learn we did.
We saw the past and remembered it so it could not be repeated. We called out instances in which it seemed like it was coming back. Nobody wants another Nazi Germany. We must learn, however, that just like a virus that mutates, the danger may look a bit different each time.

Met grote verbazing zag ik vandaag in @destandaard opiniestuk waarbij nucleaire lobby wordt beschuldigd van steun bieden aan Poetin. Niet alleen in die titel, maar ook doorheen het opiniestuk vond ik heel wat onwaarheden.

Draadje 🧵 1/21…
Eerst en vooral: weinig verbazing over de auteurs. Het is een opiniestuk van twee rabiate anti-#kernenergie activisten met een politiek verleden. Ik benadruk dit graag even, omdat de redactie bij @destandaard dit vergat te vermelden. /2
Van Luc Barbé (voormalig politicus Agalev/Groen kabinetschef van Olivier Deleuze, de man achter de Wet op de #kernuitstap uit 2003) en Alex Polfliet (voormalig politicus Agalev en adjunct-kabinetschef van diezelfde Olivier Deleuze) had ik geen pro-nucleair stuk verwacht. /3

When you understand the facts of the #Assange case and the lies and deception; the daily dose of hypocrisy and finger-pointing becomes insufferable. The injustice keeps you up at night. The atrocities turn into nightmares.


A thread. 🧵

The terror and terrible treatment of others, stays with you.

The truth is a burden.

It is hard then to imagine what it must be like for #JulianAssange with all that he knows and no voice or ability to right the wrongs or to defend himself. To be silenced—

— and punished by those committing the crimes. This must already bear heavily upon him.

Assange has had no internet access since it was taken from him (along with other 'privileges') in March 2018, while in the Ecuadorian Embassy. This happened—

So in a few more days, is Sturgeon going to be accused of treason, for allowing another Countries legal system to cancel the independence vote scheduled in the next year? It’s a bit late to turn her back on her own judiciary just to wait for another GE. Make her pay by resigning
Scotland retained her legality in the Act of Union in 1707. It has never changed. Don’t let her make a fool of that. #ResignSturgeon
Does she believe the people of Scotland haven’t seen through her.
The English court does not have supremacy over Scottish legality.
She’d be better off resigning rather than be taken as treasonous by the Scottish people. So many promises has she broken,yet fooling you. #Resign

1/5 In total, seven EU countries don't use the euro: Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Hungary, Poland, Romania, and Sweden. Croatia adopted euro ten years into the EU membership. #EU #EURO

Under what requirements do EU members adopt the euro currency?
2/5 These requirements, agreed by the EU Member States in Maastricht in 1991, are known as the convergence criteria. 

Convergence criteria were put in place to measure progress in countries' preparedness to adopt the euro, and are defined as a set of macroeconomic indicators:
3/5 ✔️Price stability
✔️Sound public finances - sustainability
✔️Exchange-rate stability, to demonstrate that a Member State can manage its economy without recourse to excessive currency fluctuations
✔️Long-term interest rates, to assess the durability of the convergence

Big Oil CEOs, their front groups, and their Republican backers in Congress are already working to undo climate and clean energy progress. 1/7
#ClimateAction #ClimateCrisis #BigOil #RepublicansAreDestroyingAmerica
New York Times reported on how oil and gas lobbyists are plotting with Republicans in Congress to keep costs high by repealing billions of dollars in consumer energy electrification incentives that were part of the Inflation Reduction Act. 2/7
Oil & Gas #Lobbyists and #Republicans in Congress want to gut the $14,000 in rebates people could get for things like electric-powered induction stoves or heat pumps. 3/7 #ClimateEmergency #ClimateAction

Dear Republicans… When was the last time an undocumented migrant took your job? I’ll wait. Were you a teacher, librarian, bus driver, truck driver, pharmacy tech, nurse, doctor, finance director, or a sitting member of congress? I’ll wait..
When was the last time you were passed over for healthcare, SNAP, WIC, housing, or enrollment in school because of an undocumented migrant? I’ll wait.
You know the crop workers, dishwashers, the food prepares, the janitors, house keepers, nannies, nursing home aids. The jobs us spoiled entitled Americans are too good to work. The people who will do anything at a chance at a better life.. I’ll wait.

@VA_GOP @PostOpinions @GovernorVA I called out that false narrative in a comment @WashPost did not print. Opinion wasn't written by @DonScott757, a really good guy, but by VA Dem Machine.#FactsMatter Please read this summary of the #Truth @vademocrats @PostOpinions @RTDOpinions @GlennKessler #FactcheckersTeam Image
@VA_GOP @PostOpinions @GovernorVA @WashPost @DonScott757 @vademocrats @RTDOpinions @GlennKessler Here's proof of the #Facts about the VA General Assembly Joint Legislative Accounting Committee JLAC Report that came out Nov 2021. Virginia's economy lagged nation & region. Under 2 yrs of 100% Dem control Virginia lost 9 manufacturing planst, even Aerospace! Analysis below Image
@VA_GOP @PostOpinions @GovernorVA @WashPost @DonScott757 @vademocrats @RTDOpinions @GlennKessler Losing out on aerospace manufacturing was the unkindest cut, since Virginia has @NASA_Langley & @NASA_Wallops Island launch facility. Plus @VTEngineering But Dem legislature & McAuliffe saying he'd sign repeal of Va RTW laws, was too big a risk to invest in capital in the ground

🧵 1/51

This thread has very revealing data showing that mRNA-vaccinations create majority of the covid cases. Largest covid waves come always after the booster rounds. Not before. AFTER.

🧵 2/51

Isn't it weird coincidence that the EU suffered the most largest covid wave right after the boosting started?

Ofcourse this can be coincidence but with
what possibility the very same thing happened also in every EU memeber country? Keep reading...

High power rifle is a loaded term and misinformation about the Highland Park mass shooting.

Read about this made-up term for a gun in #EmilyPosts here:…
There is no such thing as a “high power rifle.”

But when asked by a reporter what gun was used in the horrific mass murder in Highland Park, the sheriff’s spokesman answered, “Right now we’re saying it’s a high power rifle.” 

The liberal media reported this as fact.
Guns bought by Highland Park shooter, per sheriff spokesman :

1. KelTech sub 200 rifle chambered to fire pistol cartridges

2. Remington 700 rifle (didn’t give caliber)

3. Shotgun

4. Glock 43X handgun

I like you @GovRonDeSantis but this shows you're ill informed on America's founders. I'll inform you.
Florida offers new training for teachers that says it was a 'misconception' that 'the Founders desired strict separation of church and state': report…
Virginia was 1st colony of what became the British Empire, named for Protestant English Queen Elizabeth I, preceded by her Catholic sister Mary Tudor, for whom Bloody Mary drink is named, who burned so many protestants who refused to convert back to Catholicism. @GovRonDeSantis
Religious freedom was our First Freedom, encoded in Jefferson's Va statute @GovRonDeSantis James Madison, principle author of the Constitution, viewed established state religion as a denial of the right to exercise his or her own freedom of conscience.

This newscast was on August 8, 2019.

But a little more than a year earlier when DeSantis was trying to win the Republican nomination it was a totally different story. 1/
Keep in mind DeSantis was trailing or tied generally before July 2018 in the Republican primary. Then he pushed ahead in July and never trailed. 2/
And what precipitated his move into the lead?

He made a very specific and public claim in April 2018 that he would have vetoed the red flag laws signed by Scott. Strongly implying he was opposed to them. 3/

This week’s #DirtyDisinfoTrick:
“Do Your Own Research”

Have you ever been in a heated keyboard battle and someone tells you to do your own research?
Well here’s the thing it’s super hard to conduct #research properly. And bad guys know that.

#Thread Image

We sometimes forget #google while awesome is a search engine not a fact checker. You can find an article supporting almost anything just a few keystrokes away. Image
#Academics are guilty of using jargon and hard to understand language. That’s because they are really writing these papers for other people in their field.

It’s hard to just pick up a scientific journal or google a study and know what they are saying.

We all unknowingly share #misinformation sometimes🙈. Some of us more often than others. Here we know a guy who makes people’s phones hot with #fakenews in the friends #WhatsApp groups📱🔥.

His name is 🎤 #Kofi 🎤 Image
#Kofi is your everyday young person who’s very invested in current affairs in Africa & across the world📰📱📺 Image
#WhatsApp is #Kofi’s app of choice. He however shares online news and content from very questionable sources in the friends group. Often without #verifying the content🤦🏿‍♂️🤦🏿‍♂️🤦🏿‍♂️ Image
