I love the book 1984. It's a great work of art which will outlive everyone who reads these words. However, it can become a millstone for those who read it, the inevitability of it all is bad for morale.

Hence I advocate "Orwell's Oversight".
I've pitched the concept in the broadest possible sense:

Any instance where the official line is publicly contradicted. Orwell suggested a society of citizens, constantly watched and controlled. Instead we live in a world where everyone is watched by everyone else.
1984 is a victim of its own success. A vision so compelling it has enchanted many, including those in positions of power, but to mistake it for reality is to live in an oppressive fiction.

Liberation is in the fact the internet's all-seeing-eye works both ways; we can see them.

@GrumpyDaddd @Futureworldxxl Reality-Check: #Germany has 1% of the global population & wants to safe the #earth by charging among the higest #energy-prices on earth? Sounds more like a bunch of idiots allowing themselves to be ripped off big time!
#GreenEnergy #ClimateChange #Klimawandel - Part 1
@GrumpyDaddd @Futureworldxxl 2. At the same time Germans happily use their #iPhones, produced in #China by near slave-labour under conditions that are far from green.

German #Chemical companies happily produce in #Shaoxing, #China with a pollution (I have seen it) which takes your breath away! #Bayer #BASF
@GrumpyDaddd @Futureworldxxl 3. And the missionaries of #ClimateChange & #GreenEnergy, like @LeoDiCaprio, are the biggest jokes: Talking about climate change, but leaving a carbon foot-print the size of a village, with their #yachts, private #jets & several #villas with several servants! #ABigCon!

This infographic drives me nuts, as it has gone completely viral multiple times and people share it basically uncritically. We need to talk about it.
Firstly, one may argue philosophically whether it makes sense to put the *entirety of a potential human's* emissions on the same dimension as "don't have a car" but let's set that aside and assume it's totally valid. I want to talk about the technical calculation here
Your first question should be "how did they calculate this?" Here we go. Start at the paper: iopscience.iop.org/article/10.108… and find this passage:

I know this is a foreign concept to most folks, but we scientists on university faculties – especially conservation/ecology types – generally do NOT do things "for the money". 1/n #sciencemoney
When I am awarded a grant, that money goes to creating a position for me to hire a grad student or post-doc to manage the project. I could request something like 1 month salary for myself (I'm only paid for 11) but I almost never do. #sciencemoney 2/n
That's the most I *could* do, though, i.e., get paid a full 12 months of my salary. With few exceptions (e.g., 13-month salaries), there's no way for us public scientists to get rich off grants. #sciencemoney 3/n

So all of us in the #resistance are giving ourselves a big pat on the back for the #BlueWave. After all, we took 40 seats and soon @TeamPelosi will be House Speaker

Great job! We think. After two long years we can finally take it easy.

NOT. SO. FAST.

<Thread>
Yes, it was wonderful to see those Democratic candidates win. And nice to see our effort rewarded.

With control of the House, we now have a Constitutional check on the president PLUS we control more governorships and state legislatures

But there’s still a TON of work to do.
As the past few days have shown, we still have a corrupt president: compromised by Russia, beholden to Saudi Arabia, unwilling to acknowledge basic facts about climate change and seemingly unconcerned about the sanctity of human life.

Before we proclaim man made climate change a scientific fact... Perhaps science could explain this first? Or get tomorrow's weather correct before we believe 100 year forecasts...#justSaying #climatechange #ClimateAction today.tamu.edu/2016/11/29/600…
Hey #climatechange alarmists, might wanna take a peek at this too. amnh.org/explore/ology/…
I'll clue you guys in:

WE CANNOT CONTROL THE WEATHER.

Its tweets like this that we have heard time and time again, that shout at the problem and never go the xtra mile to learn the solution. I see friends liking the bridge to oblivion posts & wonder why they stay silent, ignoring solutions. It makes you realize they never paid attn.
When I see upstart 3rd parties and friends staying in the low hanging fruit of pointing and problems and skipping the solutions (#FederalJobGuarantee, #GreenNewDeal, #MedicareForAll) and then realize they never bothered really getting #MMT... it makes you further realize...
The lights aren't on yet.

Low-carbon finance webinar from @CmccClimate with @BjarneSteffen and Tobias S Schmidt from @ETH_EPG started. Some take-aways:
Relevance to look at finance conditions for renewables = specific feature of high capital intensity compared to non-renewables
In this regard, work has been done on 4 topics: analysis of corporate vs. non-recourse project finance, evolution of cost of capital for project-financed RE, state investment bank (SIBs) policies for investment and multilateral bank (MDBs) investment policies.

Short thread on how I got involved in #Activism - I have been an activist since I was 17 (1989) - I campaigned with EarthWatch Ireland about, 'The Greenhouse Effect' (now #ClimateChange) raw sewage / river pollution and recycling.
In 1994, I moved to London for work and joined @GreenpeaceUK as a volunteer working on #StopEsso campaign and #SaveorDelete an Ancient Forests campaign. In 2002, #Banksy worked with us to create a poster and I was in charge of sending them around the UK along with this stencil
First rule of stenciling - Don't have your name printed on it!

The Wife just called.
She's been trapped on a flooded road in NJ for hours.
Never made it to her classes.
Now being towed out, but she says she is safe.
She didn't want me to worry (until now!!!)

But #ClimateChange is a big joke to the #GOP, right?
I'm so anxious, now.
UPDATE: The Wife is now home and showered and recovering from her horrible experience of being trapped in the flash flooding.

Thanks to everyone who offered support. It's always scary being alone and paralyzed and unable to go rescue one's sweetheart.

You know what....I have a idea we should hope for a disease that wipes man out. There fixed (JOKING) besides Ted Turner, founder of CNN already had that idea. Just because the creator of the ‘internet’ Al Gore made ‘Climate Change’ popular doesn’t make it a fact.

#ClimateChange
Ted Turner FOUNDER OF CNN says the way to save the world is with less people. “There is too many people”

#ClimateChange
Remember that time Bill Gates promoted ways of lowering co2 by the effective use of vaccines to lower the population by 10 or 15% “REALLY GREAT JOB”

Wait I thought vaccines saved lives?

This dumb idea to tackle #ClimateChange is based on zero understanding of #FluxTransferEvents… the magnetic connections b/t the Sun’s magnetohydrodynamic core & the #Earth’s ferrous core (the latter of which creates our #magnetosphere), the source of our planet’s internal heat.
… because our magnetosphere is diminishing, we actually have larger, more immediate problems than #ClimateChange: we need to create an artificial magnetosphere w/in the next century to prevent massive genetic mutagenesis, which could possibly be an extinction-level event.
… genetic & metagenetic analyses of @StationCDRKelly & his twin portends extremely dire levels of genetic damage from our declining #magnetosphere. There’s a solution to this planetary problem, but it will require massive international coordination in America’s domain: #space.

No matter how hard they try, the #Trump administration can’t bury the effects of #climatechange in a Black Friday news dump – effects their own federal government scientists have uncovered. nytimes.com/2018/11/23/cli…
This report shows how #climatechange will affect every single one of our communities.

The president says outrageous things like climate change is a hoax engineered by the Chinese and raking forests will prevent catastrophic wildfires.
But serious consequences like collapsing coastal housing prices and trillions of dollars in stranded fossil fuel assets await us if we don’t act.

@Ocasio2018 We keep reading about how the extreme weather of 2017 is the "new normal" thanks to global warming — even if the weather in question is frigid air. But the data don't show any trend in extreme weather events in the U.S. for decades. Science, anyone?
investors.com/politics/edito…
@Ocasio2018 A year ago, thousands of scientists issued a terrifying "second notice" to mankind about how we will destroy the planet unless we take "urgent" action.
If this warning is as reliable as the first notice they issued in 1992, we have nothing to worry about.
investors.com/politics/edito…
@Ocasio2018 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.

Florida Republican Leaders: Here are some things you need to know about the National Climate Assessment issued today. @marcorubio @ScottforFlorida @RonDeSantisFL @mattgaetz @DrNealDunnFL2 @RepTedYoho @michaelgwaltz @MarioDB @VernBuchanan @gregsteube @RossSpano @congbillposey
First, this report was approved by 13 federal agencies, including NOAA and NASA and was prepared to inform decision makers like you about the effects of climate change on the United States 🇺🇸
The report (NCA4) agrees with prior Dept of Defense conclusions that climate change is a threat to national security. You may remember the F-22s that were destroyed in Hurricane Michael.

Magalia had a plan to remove the dead trees but it had to be approved by California environmental agencies. By law only 50 acres a YEAR could be treated with prescribed burning up to 500 acres over 10 years. WTF is wrong with you @JerryBrownGov
What did these plans have to address? AIR QUALITY of course, notice how wildfires affect moonbeams precious air😡 This didn’t have to happen. #CampFire
It didn’t stop there. FROGS needed to be studied 🐸and of course a detailed study of every plant that ever lived. All of them dead now. #CampFire

Things are starting to change. What future do we want?

The political left and alt-right will use technology (incl. #AI/#AGI) & near-certain runaway #climate change. How to turn threats into opportunities? An intro to #ExtinctionRebellion research: vimeo.com/297453366 1/n
This film introduces a political theory on necessary conditions for climate mitigation (a.k.a.: "saving the world"). Let's call this theory "carbon language" until we find a better term. Don't worry, this thread will be short and easy to understand. vimeo.com/297679220 2/n
Indeed, this thread is entirely unscientific because science can tell us only how to save the world, not why. Why preserve life on Earth? Why live good lives? These are ethical questions; their answers depend on our values, and if we want to mitigate climate change, we will 3/n
