#ClimateBreakdown Archi-Reading: in March I am going to suggest a book a day to prep students & clue up practitioners for the #Anthropocene as a therapeutic exercise. No time to sit back.

Day 1:

Fundamental reading for practising, studying or teaching architecture in 2019 - redefines our relationship not only with carbon but building materials at large. There should be multiple copies of this in every office and university!

For more:…
Day 2:

The few-month-old update of what should be the definitive companion to anyone working in - or around - the built environment; masterfully covering the essentials of sustainable design whilst compiling more precedents than your clients, staff or students could hope for.

Alberta’s coming into a provincial election this May. It's already ugly. Poor & even false information abounds. But it doesn't have to. Not for you. Get your #AlbertaContext here! #THREAD #abpoli #cdnpoli #ABElection #yyc #yeg
Does it all really just come down to #BuildThePipeline or #BooCarbonTax? The answer, as always, is it’s more complicated than that. The world is going through immense changes, #AB as much as anybody. Who we pick for a leader will have to navigate through some critical years /2
CONTEXT 1: AMERICA FLIPS THE TABLES. In 2015 America shifted the whole world’s energy paradigm. We've not yet recovered. We might not ever. America just went from being our prime (SOLE) oil *customer* to one of the world’s top oil *producers* /3…

Today, @AOC & @EdMarkey released a Congressional Resolution calling for a #GreenNewDeal, "a 10-year plan to mobilize every aspect of American society at a scale not seen since World War 2 to achieve net-zero greenhouse emissions and create economic prosperity for all." My take...
You can read the full text of the #GreenNewDeal resolution here:…

And a fact sheet being circulated by @AOC to define her vision of the plan here:…

Both are short, so dig in yourself if you haven't yet.
I commend @AOC, @EdMarkey & #GreenNewDeal co-sponsors for putting the urgent need to confront #climatechange with an ambitious clean energy mobilization on the top of the political agenda. This is an urgent threat. Confronting it is a real opportunity for economic renewal.

@MeetThePress seems to think we can control the weather...
Hey @JerryBrownGov if you leave all the kindling in the forest, expect fire moron.

It's not raking leaves you f*****g moron, it's clearing dead brush, AKA kindling, AKA fire starter.

Why not just start tossing crumpled up news paper into the forest? (same thing) Idiot.

Today I have been following the reports and articles about the @IPCC_CH report.
I am astonished that we are still talking about the 1,5 degree target as a reachable goal, without mentioning the ENORMOUS requirements that would take. -->
We already have at least 1,5 degrees (pollution hides at least 0,5 degrees ) built up in the system. In the future, we might find a way to limit the warming by 1,5 degrees, and that is almost necessary, with solutions that doesn't exist today.But that can't be our priority now.->
We have less than two years left now to bend the emission curve, and we had this chance to try to inform people about the crisis we are in, but instead we take that opportunity to spread false hope.
IPCC plays huge gamble with our future.

This Republican control over all parts of our government defies comparison. On second thought, it feels like a Biblical punishment..Remember the 10 Plagues of Egypt?
#RepublicanPlague #CrimesAgainstHumanity #RiseUp
First, the waters of the land of Egypt were to be turned into blood....
The Clean Water Rule protected smaller bodies of water, like streams and wetlands, from discharges of all kinds of pollutants. But not anymore: #RepublicanPlague #CleanWaterAct
The EPA has delayed implementation for 2 years as the agency “clarifies” (read: eliminates)the rule.The decision is a clear gift to industrial polluters who loudly protested the reg in 2015 & GOP lawmakers who have falsely claimed the rule regulates “puddles on private property.” Large freighter ship spilled red and yellow toxic sludge into waterway. People in small boats float on the spill.
