🇮🇹 ITALY:

Mont Blanc glacier could collapse at any moment, Italy warns cnn.com/travel/article… #ClimateChangeIsReal
⚠️ A staggering 250,000 cubic meters /8.8M cubic ft of ice could break away from the Planpincieux glacier on the Grandes Jorasses mountain in the Mont Blanc massif.
⚠️Observations in August and September showed that the glacier was shifting at a speed of 20-24in /50-60cm per DAY, experts said.

Alpine glaciers are melting as a result of rising global temperatures.

1. When the polar ice is melted, Florida will be erased.

But we could see a 10 meter rise in a century with the help of anti-science #Trump & his #ClimateDenial Republicans pushing a high carbon & methane agenda. What would that look like?

2. When the polar ice is melted, Florida will be erased.

But this is #Florida with only a 10 meter rise in sea level. Be sure to thank the Republicans.

3. When the polar ice is melted, Florida will be erased, but this a Florida our grandkids could see.

Robert H. Goddard (1882-1945). American professor, aerospace engineer, physicist, inventor, best known for having developed the world's first liquid fueled rocket. He met Jimmy Doolittle while in Roswell, NM (1930).

Hold that thought.
Vincent J. Schaefer, while working with G.E. (1946) made the first man made storm by dumping 3lbs of CO2 into a cloud. By 1947 Project Cirrus was born, under the direction of Captain H.T. Orville whom aimed to control hurricanes using silver iodide.
A little about H.T. Orville. Meteorologist, Deputy Chief of Naval Operations (1943). He is known for charting weather in Operation Torch and the Doolittle Raid in WW2. He wrote for Collier's Magazine about weather manipulation in 1954.

#Resistance family: I pretty much dropped off of twitter for a couple weeks, dealing with personal shit and trying to check my rage and restlessness with the status quo. And, of course, everything is worse now, and in a couple more weeks, it will be even more worse. 1/
I'm tired. Of the fact that this Administration continues to defile our country with impunity. Tired of racists (becoming more emboldened by the day). Tired of cops getting away with (literally) murder. Tired of human beings being locked in cages like animals. 2/
I'm tired of the fact that brown Americans are made to feel as though they're not Americans (even those born here). It makes me tired that, as each day brings us closer to school starting, my stomach ties into knots, thinking about what could happen to my children there, 3/

Farmers are going bankrupt left and right here, no exaggeration.

Every few days I hear of another.

Not only have tariffs destroyed their family businesses, climate change is DEVASTATING this state's farmers.

I've included pics below:

While taking these I saw a few fertilizer tractors out, VERY few seeders.

These are corn & soy fields, and we are not low ground here.

Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.

Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH

Liar.

The New York Times has compiled a list of the 84 environmental rules on their way out during your nightmare presidency.
Here are the ones that have been completed so far:
"1. Canceled a requirement for oil and gas companies to report methane emissions. (EPA)"
#LiarInChief
"2. Revised and partially repealed an Obama-era rule limiting methane emissions on public lands, including intentional venting and flaring from drilling operations.
(Interior Department)"
#ClimateChangeIsReal #ThursdayThoughts
"3. Loosened a Clinton-era rule designed to limit toxic emissions from major industrial polluters. (EPA)"

1⃣ In #Uttarakhand, increasingly warmer winters are making #Rhododendrons bloom earlier than usual; during February-March instead of its usual schedule of March-May.

📸 Ssteaj - Own work, CC BY-SA 4.0
The season is not the best time for #Rhododendrons, because late winter rains in February-March wash away the blooms, affecting local population dependent on making juice, jams and jellies from the flowers.

This is the thickness of the #EarthsAtmosphere from pictures I took during one of #NASA’s Live Feeds from the #ISS!Trump wants to change how #Climate data is shown to Americans so that releasing CO2 looks less dangerous then it actually is #ClimateChange #ClimateAction is needed!
Here’s one reality, we should be spending more money to stay on Earth than planning to leave to go to Mars because Earth’s Atmosphere is no longer viable to sustain life. Research is important but Mars Doesn’t Have an Atmosphere. Millions of people can’t live there in 125 years‼️

A few words from @theguessworker on Earth Day 2019 and the overwhelming experience realizing you won't able to save what you love most. #ClimateChangeIsReal

👇👇👇 THREAD 👇👇👇
For the first time in 15 years, I sat down in my car the other day and broke down sobbing. On the side of a dirt road, surrounded by mountains. Waves of sadness, frustration, rage, and despair welling up.
I’d spent the day planting and watering seedlings, which I’ve done for half a decade now. We have 300 acres on the north slope of Volcan Mountain, between Julian and Warner Springs. The property got hit by the Pines Fire in 2002, which killed two-thirds of the conifers.

150 species die daily. The last 5 years were the hottest on record. The UN says we have 12 years left to cut carbon emissions. #ClimateChangeIsReal - we have to act now to save our earth. Smiling in this photo b/c it’s heavy, but we can do this. WE MUST SAVE HER. #EarthDay
Alexandria Villaseñor is a heroine. And she is only 13. Villaseñor is nearly 20 weeks into her own strike. Instead of going to school on Fridays, she protests outside U.N. headquarters in New York City, almost always alone and often in the rain and cold.

💥Old thread re: Matt Gaetz that was broken several times, deserves a read tonight.

Escapades in #Florida...

💥One ex-opponent of Gaetz asserts: "...the people I've met either don't care for Matt Gaetz or are fearful of Matt (his father, former State Senator) and Don Gaetz."
💥Matt Gaetz was arrested in Okaloosa County in 2008 with reasonable suspicion. He refused the breathalyzer.

🌴In Florida, this is usually a mandatory license suspension. Instead, arresting officer Okaloosa County Deputy Chris Anglin resigned. 1/

💥The charges were dropped.

Here is my message to @billshortenmp odds are that you will be the next PM of Australia 🇦🇺 post the next Federal Election. I ask you to focus on the following concerns:
1. #ClimateChangeIsReal we need to treat this as a national emergency. If strategies are not put in place ...
... now then what kind of environment will be the “norm” for your children and grandchildren?
2. Stagnating wage and poor employment conditions for those not earning the “average” wage in Australia. Restoration of penalty rates. We need wage growth. Fairness surrounding .......
... taxation of the rich. I agree with your #FrankingCredits policy and ask you to investigate the #negativegearing corporate welfare provided to those that have multiple investment properties. I am not saying get rid of it altogether but there again needs to be fairness.........

🌎After years of deleterious moves to outright harm the environment, why did Rick Scott take action and on July 9th and declare a STATE OF EMERGENCY because of blue-green algae blooms? 3 Reasons. Money, politics & urgency/necessity.

tampabay.com/news/business/…
👉These 7 counties were affected by the blue-green algae blooms: Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie, Glades, Hendry, Lee and Okeechobee.
⁉️And then on August 13, 2018, why did Rick Scott declare a STATE OF EMERGENCY because of “red tide” in the following counties: Charlotte, Collier, Hillsborough, Lee, Manatee, Pinellas and Sarasota? (Lucky Lee County! Red + Green = Grey—Brown)

💥Steve King U.S. Congress IA-04 (please vote for J.D. Scholten @Scholten4Iowa) is a quadruple threat at the very least on some of the most prominent issues of the 2018 Election.

1⃣▶️He’s a racist, intensifying the pervasive polarization in the country

desmoinesregister.com/story/news/pol…
2⃣▶️Steve King has voted for every repeal or bill to chip away at the Affordable Care Act

3⃣▶️He voted for the #GOPTaxScam, a series of tax breaks for corporations & wealthy passed by Republicans, now used as the excusing for cutting Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid
4⃣▶️King is backed by Charles Koch, who has been funding a hybrid of Republican/Libertarian/"eccentric" billionaire causes & politicians for decades in order to promote his agenda: mainly to abolish EPA/all environmental regulations, bust employee unions & ease corporate taxes.

🍑Lucy McBath @LucyWins2018: Mother, Wife, Businesswoman, Activist for Social Justice.

🗣️You might recognize her from the 2016 #Democratic Convention: she represented Mothers of the Movement, a group of women whose African American children have been killed by gun violence.
🍑She intended to run for the #Georgia Legislature, but after the Parkland #Florida shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, she decided her aspirations weren’t high enough. #NeverAgainMSD #BeAVoter
🍑She’s running for Congress in George’s 6th District and could use your help because she’s in a tight race. She’s running against the SAME NRA-backed, A-rated Republican that Jon Ossoff ran against in a runoff election in June 2017. Ossoff should have won back then.

@KMidterms @AguilarCampaign @clcv You’ve been lied to. Tax is $0.30/gal, up 18 cents from before. Gas was ~$3/gal before Trump. Now it’s > $4/gal. You’re decrying an 18 cent/gal increase while conveniently ignoring the > $0.80/gal increase Trump’s policies have caused?

Glad we talked.

sacbee.com/news/politics-…
@KMidterms @AguilarCampaign @clcv In addition, that tax goes to road repair. Every $1 spent on road work saves $5 in auto repair. After replacing the front end of my car for $700, I was in favor of the increase.
@KMidterms @AguilarCampaign @clcv Per the debate, Flynn agrees with this tweet, though not in terms of policy. But we’ve seen what “market-based” solutions caused in 2008. Banks were allowed to crash the economy. Regulation alone brought us back from the Great Recession. #ClimateChangeIsReal. We need to face it.
