There is a global pandemic that has always been there and which #COVID19 is forcing you to see: domestic abuse
- #Tunisia: in the first 5 days after people were ordered to stay in, calls to a hotline for women suffering abuse increased fivefold. google.com/amp/s/www.wash…
- #Greenland; the capital banned sale of alcohol following a surge in reports of violence in homes.
- #France: the government set up centers in grocery stores with secret passwords where victims can seek help in one of the few places they still are allowed to visit.
#COVID19
- #Brazil: the federal government hasn’t issued stay-in orders, a state-run drop-in center has seen a 40 to 50 percent rise in demand.

“Victims of domestic violence, most often women, face a double threat: a deadly virus outside and an abuser at home.”

THE INVISIBLE ENEMY

1. What does @POTUS mean when he says “The world is at war with a HIDDEN ENEMY?”

2. What does he mean when he says “We will defeat an INVISIBLE ENEMY?”

3. What did he mean when he said we're “going to MARS very soon?”

Are they related?

I say yes!
2. HERE IS MY THEORY

I DON'T think he is referring to the #CoronaVirus

I think ... get ready for this ... he's telling us that we're going to War with the Roman Empire which has been hiding in...

Great read in @nytimes by @NathanielRich, focusing on the decisive decade when humankind first came to a broad understanding of the causes and dangers of #climatechange.

"More carbon has been released into the atmosphere since the final day of the #Noordwijk conference, Nov. 7, 1989, than in the entire history of civilization preceding it."
"By the end of the 21st century, scientists predict that Switzerland could face a temperature increase of five degrees Fahrenheit because of climate change; by then, a majority of central #Switzerland’s glaciers will have disappeared."

@Dutchwouter777 Buy the #WashingtonDC swamp — the state of #FUBAR.
It’s always underwater spending TRILLION$ more than it receives in taxes, & is always trying to tell everybody else in the world how to govern themselves while it continually fails to govern itself.
#tRumpism #Penceism #Bidenism
@Dutchwouter777 Some say the #Dutch got the wool pulled over their eyes & bought the land from a group of natives that lived on Long Island & were only traveling through #Manhattan.
They traded away land they had no claim to & continued on home with the Dutch loot.

@Dutchwouter777 In 1867, #WilliamSeward bought #Alaska from the Russians for $125 million in 2019 dollars. It ended Russia’s expansion across the Bering Sea, which had extended the Russian Empire as far south as Fort Ross, California, 90 miles from San Francisco Bay.

1/ .@POTUS remarks on #Greenland, Aug 18th 2019
Q: Is there any U.S. land holding that you would be willing to do in exchange --

THE PRESIDENT: Little louder, Maggie.
@POTUS 2/ Q: In order to get your interest in Greenland, which has been widely reported, is there anything --

THE PRESIDENT: Well, Greenland, I don't know -- it got released somehow. It's just something we talked about. Denmark essentially owns it.
@POTUS 3/ We're very good allies with Denmark. We protect Denmark like we protect large portions of the world. So the concept came up and I said, "Certainly, I'd be. Strategically, it's interesting, and we'd be interested." But we'll talk to them a little bit.

Atlantic Yards, Pacific Park, Barclays Center tour,

“Atlantic Yards, launched in 2003, also symbolizes "the theater of land use," how questionable.....ever-changing plans surround a knotty private-public partnership.”#GreenlandUS,

This is what the #ClimateEmergency looks like in #Greenland right now.

"Enough water has melted in two days to entirely cover Florida in five inches of water."

"Third day in a row with the #Greenland ice sheet losing more than 10 billion tons."

Amazing footage - apropos this and the Watson River flood of 2012, my colleagues and I were inspired to write a paper looking at the potential for high runoff events in the future in this paper researchgate.net/publication/32…
In our future #climate simulations the region in western #Greenland that includes #Kangerlussuaq from the #icesheet to the shores of the #DavisStrait we show how melt + runoff of early 2000s was outpacing mid-century projections*

*Caveat: only one GCM #ECEARTH shown here
The more extreme the scenario - the more extreme the projected melting, but note the very high interannual variability.

#ClimateAlarmists ignore the fact that all of their propaganda efforts to scare people into submitting to expensive CO2 reduction schemes are having less than no restraining effect on the one & a half degrees of #GlobalWarming over the last two centuries.
vox.com/2015/5/15/8612…
Nothing being done now is having any effect on reducing CO2. We could help Nature do it the old fashioned way by planting a trillion trees. But that takes time.
#ClimateAlarmists prefer preventing the poorest people from trying to stay alive during winter.

Scientists are proving that active geothermal sources around the globe are causing most of the glacier melting & ocean warming. And more of that heat should be harnessed to benefit humanity, as has been done throughout human history.

@DrDenaGrayson @VP @jaketapper In the U.S. at least, air pollution is down since 1992 for every single pollutant the EPA measures. And our CO2 emissions are down since the mid-1990s, yet #ClimateCatastrophists claim NONE of that improvement has slowed global, or U.S. #ClimateChange.

@DrDenaGrayson @VP @jaketapper For more than forty-five years the Clean Air Act has cut pollution as the U.S. economy has grown.
Carbon dioxide is not pollution. It’s colorless, odorless, and tasteless.

RT this [THREAD] of articles if you'd like to ask Twitter's most popular UK political commentators - the vast majority of whom seldom or never mention the Ecological Emergency - for analysis of the politics of catastrophic #ClimateBreakdown, #MassExtinction & #EcologicalCollapse.
Dear @jonsnowC4 @peston @bbclaurak @bbcnickrobinson @afneil

'we could be looking at an epic extinction event, caused by ourselves, which could include exterminating our own species, or at least what we call “civilization,” in as little as nine years.'

Hi @OwenJones84 & @paulmasonnews

'We are already facing mass extinction. There is no removing the heat we have introduced into the oceans, nor the 40bn tons of CO2 we pump into the atmosphere every single year. There may be no changing what is happening'

1/8 My favorite #quote by #JosephStalin, which explains the scientific, #DialecticalMaterialist explanation of true freedom in material reality, not just as an abstract ideal. #StalinIsBack #StalinLives #JVStalin #Stalin #StalinQuote #StalinQuotes #Truth #MELS #MarxismLeninism
2/8 Having an #objective, #rational, #ScientificSocialist, #Dialectical, & #Materialist viewpoint allows us to accurately see & evaluate & analyze #Truth & #Reality as they truly materially exist in this universe.
3/8 An idealistic, dogmatic viewpoint, which capitalists have, however, makes one irrational enough to 'see' freedom where freedom stays trapped on a piece of paper while people are oppressed in their actual lived lives.

In 2013 @IPCC_CH concluded “Surface meltwater, although abundant on the #Greenland ice sheet, does not drive significant changes in basal lubrication that impact on ice sheet flow”. Could the opposite be emerging as a new paradigm? Thread 👇 1/12. Read and tweet. #climateclimate
The #IPCC #5AR statement (above) refers to efficient evacuation of meltwater in large channels, which can slow down the #ice flow by removing water that otherwise would lubricate and promote faster sliding over the bed. 2/12
nationalgeographic.org/photo/8iceshee…
Evacuation of meltwater in efficient channels explains why #ice flow in some regions of #Greenland has slowed down despite year-on-year increases in air temperature and surface melting. But how widespread are those observations? 3/12
