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.)

Making a list comparing ALL of Bernie's plans to Warren's plans to prove she isn't more "specific and detailed and has more plans" than Bernie.

"I have a plan" is empty sloganeering and libs need to admit it.
Bernie has 31 plans on his site, Warren has 52

But bear in mind Numerical count ≠ More 'specific' or 'policy-focused' ⁠— scope and quality of these plans matter

For e.g. Bernie's #GND (1 comprehensive plan) covered everything in Warren's 'Green' plans (6 separate plans)

So @NaomiAKlein made some important points on the @PitchforkEcon podcast about neoliberalism and the #GND. She said that while the popularity of purist neoliberal doctrine is not as popular pervasive, its success has been in convincingly asserting that #thereisnoalternative /1
This is because neoliberalism has effectively captured the public imagination in two critical ways. 1) Framing debates about Capitalism under the assumption that it is an immutable indivisible totality, while they themselves understand and act on the assumption it is not /2
Considerable energy is spent debating under the premise that the only contributions towards systemic alternatives must clearly guarantee the overcoming of the capitalist totality from the onset. Neoliberals however have spent 40 years shaping institutions to their liking /3

I'm at #ecomodernism2019, and there is a panel about Perspectives on the Green New Deal, with @leahstokes and @jerry_jtaylor and moderated by @emilyhholden

I'll be live tweeting in this thread
@leahstokes @jerry_jtaylor @emilyhholden Holden: we are here to talk about the role of the #GND and whether it is good politically
@leahstokes @jerry_jtaylor @emilyhholden Stokes: in my mind the #GND lives in the Democratic Presidential candidate plans. Inslee plan provided a good base and highlights the scale of the deployment challenge of 8 or more times the historical rate

Surprise!✨I am thrilled to announce the launch of our #GreenNewDeal art series with custom Bronx & Queens GND posters.

The Bronx edition poster will be given for free as a limited release to the public at our Pelham Bay Nature Day & Backpack Giveaway in the Bronx tomorrow.

/1
These posters push us to imagine our future with a Green New Deal in two of our beloved NY-14 parks: Pelham Bay & Flushing Meadows.

All our #GND posters are made in the US, union-printed & will be available for purchase soon, but available at organizing events now.

/2
Bronx & Queens art is where we’re starting, but we aspire to release custom #GreenNewDeal art for local communities across America.

We are also working on a line of GND reusables!

The first 250 prints will be released at Family Nature Day tomorrow, where we’re doing park tours:

People are deliberately starting fires in the #AmazonRainforest to illegally deforest indigenous land for cattle ranching

Pataxó woman:
“These assholes came in and burned down [our reservation]... I want all of the media here to see this”
TRANSLATION:
For 2 years we’ve fought to preserve [our reservation] & these assholes came in & burned it down.

They are killing our rivers, our sources of life, & now they have set our reserve on fire. Tomorrow we are closing the roads & I want all the media here to see this.
🌎The #AmazonFires show there can be no #GreenNewDeal w/out indigenous rights

🌳By safeguarding sovereignty over ancestral lands-- which make up 1/4 of the earth's surface-- we can reverse deforestation

⚖️#GND is our best shot at stabilizing the climate & repairing injustice

Isra Hirsi, daughter of US congresswoman Ilhan Omar, is co-founder of US Youth Climate Strike. When it launched (2019) it essentially mirrored Thunberg's campaign. Today it is a MoveOn for youth.

@JohnStauber can tell you all about MoveOn - a front party for the US democrats.
I can tell you about MoveOn too. It is a co-founder of Avaaz, an NGO that I have researched & written extensively about since 2012.

Avaaz: Imperialist Pimps of Militarism, Protectors of the Oligarchy, Trusted Facilitators of War:

This interview!
Apparently there's no one under 65 on Biden's team with any influence to tell him that 71% of Americans support #M4A among other things.

Exclusive: Biden expresses skepticism of Democrats' leftward tilt and AOC's mass appeal

cnn.com/2019/07/05/pol…
#Biden seems not to have even read the demographics from 2016 or the issues voters prioritized in 2018 (climate, healthcare, immigration, guns). He resorts to referring to AOC as "bright" but "not representative," which is how he famously referred to Obama in 2007.
2/
#Biden also says he wasn't prepared for #KamalaHarris to come after him because she knows him & knew his late son, Beau. (He needs to stop using Beau for sympathy points. He should reference his living son, Hunter, who gave a heart-wrenching interview about his addiction.)

The latest @BloombergNEF New Energy Outlook dropped Tuesday morning: about.bnef.com/new-energy-out…. My take here and few thoughts follow: bloomberg.com/opinion/articl… via @bopinion 1/11
This time last year, BNEF expected CO2 emissions from the global power sector would peak in 2027. This time around, they think peak emissions has occurred already 2/11
But while BNEF is optimistic about the power sector traveling a <2C path to 2030, much more needs to be done to stay on it past that. BP's latest statistical review of 2018 provided a warning in that regard ... 3/11

We need a #GreenNewDeal and #JG. Most people aren't socialpathic. In their jobs, they don't want to work on making the planet unlivable for their children, they don't want to engage in fraud or corruption, they don't want to stand by while their coworkers are harassed and abused.
Most people don't want to build systems of mass surveillance, psychological manipulation, and autonomous weapons. Most people don't want to work on how to exploit others more and more. But fear, fear of unemployment and loss of livelihood gets people to work rapidly on all these.
This fear is real. Whistleblowers are completely destroyed in this system. This is a system of socialpaths, by socialpaths, for socialpaths. With impending climate catastrophe and massive concentration of autonomous means of violence, we need a new system immediately.

Response to #Biden skipping the California Dems is scathing.

Biden's "refusal to show up only reinforces the idea that he’s an elitist and he is more interested in collecting big checks in CA than being in genuine touch with grassroots activists."

#Buttigieg and #Warren took Biden on.
Buttigieg said that "the riskiest thing we could do is try to play it safe.... In these times, Democrats can no more promise to take us back to the 2000s or 1990s than conservatives can take us back to the 1950s.”

usatoday.com/story/news/pol…
#Warren: “Some Democrats in Washington believe the only changes we can get are tweaks & nudges.If they dream at all, they dream small.Some say if we’d all just calm down, Republicans will come to their senses. Our country is in a time of crisis. The time for small ideas is over.”

Donella Meadows once wrote that you don't cure a fever by taking your temperature...

A thread in honor of the 'milestone' of reaching #415ppm CO2 in the thin layer of gasses that support all life on earth, aka the atmosphere.
415 ppm CO2. It is excellent to know this number, and a testament to scientific excellence and persistence since the 1960s. It's also a measure of our cleverness as a species.
We know we live on a planet (yay for us), we can measure things about that planet with great precision (yay again).

A bazillion times this.
While researching my investigative piece on #ClimateChange for @damemagazine, I interviewed families whose kids had died or nearly died from the impact of environmental racism.
This isn't some future event.
This is r
now.
Half the Midwest is underwater.
I wrote about who is leading on #ClimateChange. Also, every woman running supports the #GND. Biden claiming the working class do not is false--many working-class women are leading #ClimateAction.

There is tons of cash behind this group’s version of the #GND. There is an entire network of bundlers & c3’s whose BOD’s are paid hefty salaries. This is all about money and always has been. See: Al Gore. Sad part is, these kids believe the hype.

They like to yammer about dark money in politics. I promise you, there is a whole network of dark money & directed donations through bundlers in the climate cabal. Two of the leaders I found have investment funds for sustainable businesses. What would jack up the value of /2
those funds? Mandatory government investment in sustainable products businesses. Raise a generation to believe the world is emding in 12 years & they will work their butts off to get you what you want. It’s both disturbing & sad. /end

More of @/karolcummins sowing seeds of doubt and division by amplifying post of fellow #TeamPatriot connection @/Counterchekist, adding her own bits - notice the commenter seems puzzled for good reason - then used the Politico article to round things up.
Remember, Politico recently compared Trump to John F. Kennedy.

And notice how Politico chose to characterize Congresswoman Omar in image two.

Does Politico have a "thing" against Democrats? See image 3.
Framing the @justicedems as EXTREME left and opposite the extreme right GOP on the "horseshoe" is a common theme with @/karolcummins & #TeamPatriot.

Here, Karol is "teaching" us about the big, scary "CONTROLLED OPPOSITION" conspiracy by the "INSURGENTS!" OMG! 😱

1. Climate 'Scientists' still can’t even predict tomorrow's weather yet they want us to keep believing in future doomsday disasters that they claim are being caused by us that somehow have all failed to materialize as they predicted. #GreenNewDeal #GND #qanon #MAGA #ClimateChange
2. The Left & the Democrat party wants everyone to believe the climate is going to kill us and the only way to save ourselves is through socialism. #GreenNewDeal #qanon #MAGA #ClimateChange
3. With Climate Change as the key 2020 issue for the Dems, I've traced the last 50 years of climate change angst from 1970-2019. History PROVES that the climate change narrative is FALSE. #MAGA #qanon #GreenNewDeal #ClimateChange

Thread: Friends, Climate Change is a Global existential crisis. A threat to the very habitability of human and non-human life on Earth. We simply cannot achieve what is necessary to address this urgency at the scale and speed required with something like "low-interest loans" 1
Lending is not going to mobilize our country to transform and revitalize this economy away from fossil fuels in time to avoid catastrophe and ensure a #justransition. Here in the U.S. only the Federal Government and the power of the purse can make this happen as needed 2
Using Direct spending via #FunctionalFinance on millions of new good-paying union Green jobs, renewable infrastructure, renewable technology, and a #jobsguarantee, we can make the kind of shift necessary to overcome the paradox of economic development and eco-sustainability 3
