Is this our legacy for future generations😠?
Is money more important than conserving nature😡?
🗣️We need the forests to survive.

There is no "ngo" burning the #AmazonRainforest these are Cattle Ranchers, most of whom voted for #Bolsonaro. They're destroying the #Enviroment to steal #Indigenous land for themselves #NativeTwitter!#IndigenousRights #NativeLivesMatter

Today, NSIDC's @MarkSerreze participated in @NOAA_ESRL's seminar series here in Boulder. He presented on "Monthly Variability in Bering Strait Oceanic Volume and Heat Transports and Links to Atmospheric Circulation, Ocean Temperature and Sea Ice Conditions." @CIRESnews #CUBoulder
Some takeaways: "As we lose the #Arctic sea ice cover, Arctic riches become more exposed and easier to get at."
"Bering Strait heat flow is key to predicting the timing of seasonal sea ice retreat."

@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.

@DrDenaGrayson @VP @jaketapper Watch the animated version & see how average global temperatures continually vary and move around erratically with no relationship or response to any nation’s #GlobalWarming prevention policies or actions.

The #Earth has already warmed by more than 1 °C due to #ClimateChange. Looking at our common home from space, we can witness the impacts in real-time. Thread. 1/10 🌎
We see that #wildfires are becoming more frequent and intense, like here in California. 2/10

Y'all, I just need to brag about the students in my Barrier Islands class. While studying for their exam (which they're taking right now), they created a bunch of barrier-island-themed memes that combine #geology concepts, #coastal issues, & #humor. 1/
Almost all semester I've explained how most barrier islands worldwide are geologically "new," having only been made <10,000 years ago, but that the Georgia barrier islands are composite, made by two different shorelines during the Pleistocene & Holocene. #geology 2/
We also recently learned about how humans have interacted with barrier islands during those past <10,000 years, and how it changed from seasonal use to unsustainable over-development. #geology #coastal 3/

Usually at this time of year a sub-freezing tornado-like vortex forms over the North Pole, making the #Arctic super-cold. But in Dec. the #PolarVortex fractured, and part of it is heading southeast -- towards Great Lakes, Boston, NY.

2] There are 2 implications of this: 1.) North Pole could warm, worsening #climate impact on ice melt.
2.) W/in 10 days a wave of bitter cold & storms could overwhelm eastern US & Canada.
If #TrumpShutdown still in place then, many winter storm agencies will be shut down...

FEMA, Air Traffic Controllers, TSA, National Weather Service, US Coast Guard, parts of HHS, etc.
The #TrumpShutdown is literally a matter of national safety & security.

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.'

counterpunch.org/2017/02/10/loo…
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'

Steeling myself with a strong coffee to sit down and read major new report on avoiding dangerous #climatechange (@IPCC_CH #SR15, available here: ipcc.ch/report/sr15/). My takes to follow (1/n)
As always, the #peerreview effort by @IPCC_CH is Herculean. A couple hundred volunteer scientists read & cited 6,000+ studies to support conclusions w/ evidence. Responded to 42,001 comments in 3 rounds of review. The most robust process there is to establish scientific consensus
Now, this #SR15 report title is descriptive, but doesn't exactly roll off the tongue...

On @tagaq's recommendation, I had the chance to watch @Alethea_Aggiuq’s documentary #AngryInuk, It's about how #WhiteSupremacist #vegan lobbyists have decimated Inuit communities with food insecurity. If you care about justice, watch this: nfb.ca/film/angry_inuk
I want to be clear, opposition to the #sealhunt is #WhiteSupremacist and #racist in nature. It is absolutely clear to me that, at best, organizations like @peta ignore their impact on #Inuit. At worst, they're party to an intended programme of starvation.
In the entire course of her documentary, @Alethea_Aggiuq tried meeting with #vegan and #animalrights activists to discuss their impact on #indigenous communities. Every single attempt at communication was met with silence or avoidance.

1/ Nuiqsut is the only town in Alaska's prolific North Slope oil region, which is poised for another drilling boom.

The community has long been concerned about industry air pollution. There is reason to be anxious.

@shankman reports from the #Arctic: insideclimatenews.org/news/01082018/…
2/ "I was really stunned when I was up there in July [2017] to hear the fears that are so pervasive in the community that it even impacts the teenagers," said Barbara Trost of @alaskaDEC.
3/ More than three-quarters of Nuiqsut residents still live a traditional subsistence life, off the fish they catch, the whales they harvest and the caribou they hunt.

And they've found themselves on the frontlines of a modern crisis.

Student perspective panel of the #G7 #G7Academies #ArcticSummit #ArcticSustainability starting! So happy that there is an entire panel dedicated to student / young researcher voice 👏👏👏 @RSCTheAcademies @g7 @DSP_SPE #NextGeneration #NextGenCanScience @Y7Canada
Students are often the ones with boots on the ground, interacting with local communities - this is one of the many reasons why it's important to have early career researchers represented in these discussions - @gwynmac #g7 #g7academies #arcticsustainability #ArcticSummit

#Europe "an increasingly complex & competitive security environment," SACEUR/@US_EUCOM Commander Gen. Curtis Scaparrotti tells #SASC in opening statement
"Our adaptation to the environment has made significant progress...particularly under the European Deterrence Initiative" per Gen Scaparrotti, calling it "the largest reinforcement of Euro-Atlantic Defense in a generation"
Gen Scaparrotti also says @NATO alliance "is strong" and that "European allies & #Canada have turned a corner on defense spending with increases in each of the past 3 years" adding $46 billion to defense spending
