@xrSchweiz @payalclimate @RachaelTreharne @ZedPea @m_sahakian @JulietJFall @DrMoiraFaul @JPvanYpersele @bourg_d @VertsLausannois FYI.
It was too long (and had fewer slides than these) so try to cut down 1/3 if you want to leave time for questions in 45 minutes. It worked, though.
Thanks to @RachaelTreharne and @ZedPea for sharing their immense presentation, video here. Sorry I made your slides less stylish and the whole thing is not as stylish, actually :-(. Esthetics not my forte!

At 9pm - for the first time in 12yrs - BBC One will broadcast a 60-min documentary about climate change presented by Sir David Attenborough.

It covers the science, impacts and potential solutions of climate change, all of which Carbon Brief has covered in depth...
Last October, Carbon Brief exclusively reported the news that the film had been commissioned by the BBC...

Earlier in the year, we tracked down the 2004 lecture that Attenborough personally attended which finally convinced him that he needed to speak out about climate change...

Reporting from SF Youth Climate Strike. Signs speak for themselves. Amazing young people.
Time to get out from the hole and listen to the kids.
Enough said.

There's a conspiracy theory circulating about the #ClimateStrikes: the children can't possibly be organising and thinking for themselves. Someone must be controlling them. 1. Not one shred of evidence has been adduced to support it. Why? Because there isn't any. Thread/
2. The strikes took us veterans by surprise - and they fill me with hope of a kind I thought I'd never feel again. If the young people ask for help, we'll provide it. But they are the leaders now, and we are the followers. They have the moral authority.
3. Have you any idea how patronising and condescending this sounds? Children aren't capable of acting in their own right? The young people organising today are the most inspiring, determined group I've ever come across. They should be honoured, not insulted. #YouthStrike4Climate

So, a bunch of folks want your kids to walk out of school tomorrow. To protest for a #GreenNewDeal

They are using #ClimateStrike #FridaysForFuture #YouthStrike4Climate . This is going to be a long thread, but before your kids skip school tomorrow, you might what to tell them /1
what they are actually marching for. First and foremost they are marching for a bunch of folks whose livelihood depends on not-for-profits. I have researched some of these orgs, and there are board members clear a $500K a year. For example one board member from /2
Climate Works, a major bundler in the space whose funds flow through hundreds of local and national activist organizations, made $485,673 on the last tax filing we found. The organization's total comp was $2,828,022 for 10 board members. Not bad for selling something no one /3

Here are my suggestions for how the #YouthStrike4Climate could win. Please don't judge this by the headline - it's absolutely NOT a manifesto: theguardian.com/commentisfree/…
It would be act of appalling presumption for an old fart like me to write young people's manifesto for them. I've asked for the header to be changed.
I know the text will upset some people, as I've tried to be brutally honest about where I feel previous movements have failed. But I believe we have a duty not to replicate them. If protest is to change the world, we must work out when and why it has succeeded.

Inspiring to hear 9 year old Daphne, there with her mum, tell us how she was protesting to protect our planet. Jo Swinson, Siobhan Benita, 9 yr old Daphne and her 'Make Earth Cool Again' placard
14 year old Alicia and her friends are determined that young people's voices will be heard - they are 100% right. Siobhan Benita and Jo Swinson with teenage climate protesters and We Must Do It placard
