I am shocked (shocked!) about the discrepancy between the urgency to make progress on climate action and the nature of the ongoing @UNFCCC #COP25 negotiations. Take adaptation as an example, countries aren't talking about how to raise ambition. 1/4
@UNFCCC Instead they are fighting about the "registry" for adaptation communications. Basically it's just a webpage. The issue is if and how it is linked to the webpage that lists countries' NDCs. Without a place to submit and access adaptation communications, none will be prepared. 2/4
@UNFCCC In another room, members of the Adaptation Committee won't adopt a report they themselves prepared (or at least were asked to comment on) because the countries for which they negotiate want to change how the Committee operates. 3/4

#ProtectTheWhistleBlower from Trump, @realDonaldTrump.
We The People will lock up your butt, Mr. Trump, if you or your gang does anything to harm the #Whistleblower or corroborating witnesses.
Mob Boss Talk ⬇️ which never give a direct order, all orders are implied
We, The People, are reading the full Whistleblower Complaint minus the redactions released today Sept 26, 2019.
#HowDareYou @realDonaldTrump who today compares a #Whistleblower acting in 'Good Faith' as testified by Trump's own DNI & in accord to Whistleblower Law, to a Spy who was shot in the old days. #ProtectTheWhistleBlower

THREAD: Over the past 24 hours, my pro-Greta/anti-Dinosaur Brigade posts on Facebook have attracted much co-ordinated trolling and tender loveletters, like the attached. Leading me to the personal conclusion that the opposition to Thunberg from the Right has *nothing* to do...
... with climate change. It’s not even that they don’t accept it - these folk cannot even *comprehend* it. The technicalities of the discussion are beyond them. Their ferocious opposition isn’t even about attachment to fossil fuel industries - the man calling me a “mutt”...
... is hardly the CEO of a petrochemical company, much as he may dream about the BMW and cigars at night time. No, the opprobrium is not about climate change, as much as it is a true, distilled terror toward the (inevitable) disruption of the prevailing social order that...

Do you know about Piplantri village, where villagers hv been planting 111 saplings on the birth of a daughter? Once a barren land, it now has 3.5lakh trees & the water level has improved phenomenally, exorcising the curse of drought? No? #HowDareYou ?…
Do you know about Moirangthem Loiya, who single-handedly planted a 300-acre forest with hard work of 17 years? No? #HowDareYou ?
Do you know of Jadav Payeng, 'the forest man of India', who began planting saplings along a dry sandbar in 1979 and raised a 550 hectares of forest all by himself along the Brahmaputra river in Johrat, Assam? No? #HowDareYou ?…

Das eigentlich Bemerkenswerte an vielen Reaktionen auf die #HowDareYou-Rede von #GretaThunberg ist die völlige Ausblendung der Inhaltsebene. Es geht um die Rhetorik, die Emotionen, ihre Tränen. Eine Erwachsenengeneration, die nicht in der Lage ist, sie inhaltlich zu widerlegen.
Für derlei Reaktionen gibt es einige Erklärungen. Zum Einen: Sexistisches Derailing. In einer Situation, in der eine weibliche Protagonistin etwas Inhaltliches zu sagen hat, wird das Thema von Männern auf ein anderes "Gleis" geführt. Aussehen, Körper, Krankheit, Hauptsache (1)
es muss nicht über den gesagten Inhalt diskutiert werden, denn dann könnte der stolze Verteidiger des Patriarchats möglicherweise ins Schlingern geraten, und ein stolzer Verteidiger des Patriarchats unterliegt niemals in einer Auseinandersetzung mit einer Frau, nicht wahr? (2)

Starting now: U.S. Back in Paris: Ending U.S. Greed and Isolationism. Thanks @NewEconomyNYC for sponsoring! We'll be live-tweeting til noon #ClimateWeekNYC

@NewEconomyNYC We begin with a land acknowledgement, recognize the centuries of the Lenape people living on and caring for this land
@NewEconomyNYC We will talk about how the same systems that had a devastating impact on these people are the systems having a devastating impact on the earth.

These systems affect our ability to feel good about ourselves, to think, to do our work.

While the DEVELOPED world thinks that having an Iphone, having the fuel guzzler SUVs, buying new clothes instead of washing the existing ones, having A/C in every nook and corner of their habitats is their BASIC necessity.

They'll ask the POOR 3rd world #HowDareYou

Today the developed world has this luxury to think about environment when million others still think of their next meal !!!

In the words of #IndiraGandhi: "Poverty is the worst polluter" & that "we cannot let our people die of hunger for the sake of Climate"


First pay for the pollution YOU people have generated for the sake of development YOU people are enjoying

WE will not compromise with what's our right that is our development.

Even today you people have per capita carbon emissions far far greater then us. #HowDareYou 😬

"Full" (all of two pages) advice from #CCAC to IE Government, endorsing continuing exploration for offshore natural gas:…
Extraordinarily weak "expert" contribution IMHO:
Explains that know reserves of coal alone, or oil alone would be enough to exceed remaining +1.5C CO2 budget; but natural gas alone would not. On this basis somehow argues that continued NG exploration is warranted...

The #HowDareYou debate is a classic example of behavioural economics & social engineering. While no one is against environmental regulation & our collective duty to do right for the planet, this thread is about the manipulation by ngos that act as fronts designed to serve other
Interests. Appealing to society’s emotional side, this new genre of activists are hardly holier than thou. We have explained how they work extensively in #ClimateGate in our 2016 book #TheNewGlobalOrder @AsianWarrior
Greta Thunberg has suddenly come into the limelight & gained traction ystrdy for locking sights with President Trump. She gained attention initially for sitting in front of Swedish parliament carrying a card saying - We don’t hv time while missing school

Shameful, sexist and just plain dangerous. The Trump Admin’s #GagRule shows that it cares more about political stunts than the 2.7 million Americans who rely on Planned Parenthood for basic, lifesaving healthcare every year. *I* was one of these Americans...
I was only able to pay for college through a heck of a lot of waitressing. But I needed to have a physical to even get that job. So I went to @PPact for that basic care, because that’s all I could afford on a student’s budget.
Donald Trump doesn’t seem to get what’s at stake. He doesn’t seem to care that he’s making it harder for predominantly low-income Americans to access the care they desperately need.

Over the last few weeks, we've heard nothing but #FakeNews and lies from Trump and the @GOP on women's rights and reproductive health care. You know what we've heard nothing from them about? Combating staggering rates of preventable maternal deaths. #HowDareYou
FACT: states with the most anti-choice restrictions also have the worst outcomes for women’s & children’s health:
#HowDareYou call yourselves the "pro-life" party, when you've shown time & again that you don't value our health or lives?
On the same day Trump was spewing lies about doctors and women, an immigrant woman went into premature labor and had a stillbirth four days after being detained by ICE? Their silence, in the wake of such personal and calculated tragedy, speaks volumes. #HowDareYou

Y’all, it’s that time of year: LoveLife is starting their #40weeksofharassment campaign today in Charlotte, Greensboro, and in Raleigh.

Poll time: do I make another weekly update thread like last year?
Alright y’all. You win.

WELCOME TO WEEK ONE OF #40WEEKSOFHARASSENT! I’ll be your Sherpa of Shenanigans through this ordeal. Please keep all hands and feet inside the ride at all times. And don’t forget:
Off the bat, we have some developments from last year. The kickoff event today was not a permitted parade, and it was held primarily on the property next to the admin building.
