Election eve in Canada. Our choice once again comes down to strategic vs ideological in spite of what was promised. Once again I'm compelled to prevent the worst case scenario: empowering bigotry, racists, denialists/do-nothingers & outright proto-fascists #elxn43 #cdnpoli THREAD
Haven't voted yet. Hard to imagine not voting strategically given the Conservative can lose in my riding. Electoral Reform part hurts. So's a pipeline when AB's Kenney is trashing the climate work that was part of the deal I came to uneasily accept in the first place /2 #elxn43
On top of that in my riding Thana Boonlert is running for the Greens. He's the real deal & will make an excellent leader when this city/province is mature enough to face reality. I want people like Thana in office. We *NEED* folks like Thana in office /3 #elxn43 #cdnpoli

Je viens de finir le cours de @MichaelEMann sur la modélisation du changement climatique et j'ai appris pas mal de choses - résumé ci-dessous! #ClimateCrisis

@MichaelEMann Modéliser le climat, c'est compliqué car il faut modéliser 4 systèmes interdépendants:
- l'atmosphere,
- les océans
- la cryosphere (toute la glace),
- la biosphere

@MichaelEMann Et pour chacun de ces 4 systèmes, il faut
- découper la Terre à une maille la plus fine possible (en 3 dimensions)
- comprendre et modéliser les dynamiques : circulation océanique, jet stream, évolution des forêts, etc.
- faire mouliner le modèle sur 300 ans 🤓

Piffle&Poppycock. A point by point repudiation:
1. Even with Labour’s legally binding climate legislation you’ve bombed on the #climatecrisis
2. Agency-smagency. Phillip Hammond has called you out: this is a camouflaged no-deal
3. You’re Tories. You can also undo any legislation
Tories and their environmental promises: Heathrow expansion; Sold the Green Bank; Gave a green light for fracking; Axed zero carbon homes scheme; Banned onshore wind; ended solar subsidy; U-turned on CCS; Pulled the plug on Swansea Tidal..
Here’s a detailed Tory environmental impact assessment taking place...

Dear London,
You probably didn't know Bristol is a city where disruptive protest is an almost every day occurrence.
You do now.
Let's take stock of what some people of @XRBristol have done in London for @XRebellionUK these last few days....
pls RT...
@XRBristol @XRebellionUK First up, Bristol's pensioners are not happy about climate change.
This was the warning a week ago…
@XRBristol @XRebellionUK That was added to by the warning that 250 activists from Bristol were ready to be arrested.…

What I’m seeing right now is that the Conservative party was serve the interest of giant fossil fuel companies. They doesn’t even care about the environment and the ordinary people’s lives, even their own voters. Seriously, you really want him in charge?…
The autocratic conservative government across the world are moving right now they’re thwart and discredit environment and human rights . Jason Kenney described in glowing terms how harshly Russia . It couldn’t be more apparent what they believes.#cdnpoli…
People are usually extremely had a short memory about the bad things, which is what the conservatives are sellout to voters.Go back to the good old days? When Justin Trudeau believes that Canada should invest for the better future conservatives only want suck more money #cdnpoli

I don’t know if it’s being forced to watch the frequency at which deeper and more widespread saltwater inundation is impacting some neighborhoods in South Florida, or if it’s the inner demons released when teenagers like #Greta admonish adults, but this fall ...

I’ve had an inordinate number of, um, skeptics (I’m trying to be kind) bending themselves into pretzels trying to contradict what we in #miami and Fort Lauderdale are plainly seeing with our own eyes:

the cities are under siege from the surging seas.

They throw around all their expertly-gathered (#sarcasm) alternative facts, like “what do you expect when you build on a swamp?” Let me enlighten you:

For weeks and months, i have been tracking the arctic temperatures and the decline of the icecap.
Wondering why it was so warm , and for so long.
What is happening there? Icecap is down over 50%.
Albedo effect will be massively impacted by this.

We learned a few days ago, that scientific expedition in the east siberian arctic just found methane fountains bubbling on the sea surface , in the middle of the east siberian sea.
Some of the implications :

#ClimateCrisis #climatestrike #ClimateAction…
Here is the theory:
1/ Increasing periods of open water implies an increasing number of storm events.. Such events have the potential to rapidly ventilate bubble-transported and dissolved CH4 from the water column, producing high emission rates to the atmosphere

You're taking a job running a #renewable exports campaign? Renewable exports - what's that? Why is it important?

Last year I came up with a #Renewable Exports typology.

I reckon there are six main types of exports.

1. Direct electricity transfer via undersea cables, like the SunCable proposal to export power to Singapore…
2. Clean hydrogen-based fuel, using #renewable electricity to electrolyze water. Renewable hydrogen can then be turned into other chemicals like ammonia, which can be transported more easily and safely at scale.

I know, I know. Don't engage the trolls. Sorry @GretaThunberg @ScienceNotDogma but that "500 Scientists" story is gaining waaaay too much traction, and I'm feeling fighty. Most of the press are just parroting the PR and that's feeding the trolls. So, prepare to be threaded...
Background: A letter headlined "There is no climate emergency" was delivered to the #UNFCCC on 23 Sept, claiming that the "European Climate Declaration" was signed by 500 scientists and professionals. Of those 500, more than 150 are NOT Europeans. Soooo....
Even more preplexing, a large percentage of the signatories are NOT associated with the natural sciences at all, and many of the "professionals" are in the pocket of the #FossilFuels mafia. We can get a rough idea of this pact's make up by looking at their so-called Ambassadors.

When unprecedented rainfall hit a small village in Mali in late August, it brought devastation.

Now, thanks to Dlonguebougou villagers & @camillatoulmin, we can show you the impact. And how #ClimateChange has affected weather patterns over the last 40 years.

Thread begins⬇️ 1/
The WhatsApp message from Makono Dembélé was urgent & alarming.

"The rain! It's reached over 160mm [6.5 inches] in less than 24 hours. It's extraordinary – there’s water everywhere!"

The rain started on 25 August: a deluge no one had ever seen or heard of before in the area. 2/
"The rain is causing a lot of damage; houses are falling down," continued Makono's message.

"But thanks be to God, no one has been hurt.”

Nevertheless, the consequences for Dlonguebougou and its villagers were immense... 3/

If one of the world's most respected climate scientists has to explain the impacts of the #ClimateCrisis in just 2 minutes, it sounds like that.👇That's the essence.

#TellTheTruth #WeDontHaveTime

[THREAD 1/2]
This was Prof. Will Steffen in Canberra, May 2016.

If you can take a few more minutes, you should really have a look at this longer presentation by Will Steffen. This is one of the clearest illustrations of the climate crisis that I know.👇

To all of you who think, we might have time to stop global warming at 2.5°C: Main message here is, that tipping cascades could turn #ClimateChange into an express lift. If we miss our stop at somewhat about 2°C, we might be rushing straight towards 4°C, 5°C or more. #TellTheTruth

Bernie is going to be live soon at Plymouth State University, and I need a BERNIE BOOST, so I'm going to be drinking more Kentucky Bourbon and tuning in.

"Power to the People," is playing now. Are you tuning in?

The first speaker is up.

She woke up in terrible pain, diagnosed with a kidney infection. Pain continued. Misdiagnosed. Had a kidney stone. Got $6000 bill. For kidney stone. On top of 1000s in student loans. "This was with good health insurance." Her mother lost her job.
Instead of a simple prescription being $12, it will cost her her entire paycheck. This is why she believes we need Bernie Sanders elected as the next POTUS. Healthcare should be a human right, not just a privilege. She introduces Bernie!

I hear it was the largest individual #climateCrisis protest in history. Any city wish to challenge that? Regardless, 500,000+ people in #Montreal today for #ClimateStrike makes a POWERFUL statement that we’ve reached a real turning point toward #ClimateAction! Via @GretaThunberg
This makes me happy of many levels — including that #Vancouver showed up 100K+ strong for the @ClimateStrike, AND that citizens did it by showing how streets, bridges & our FUTURE are about people, not cars. #ClimateCrisis
Hat tip to @SimiHeer, great video!

THREAD: Chair @RepRaulGrijalva and @RepHuffman just published an op-ed on today’s @IPCC_CH report on #ClimateChange destroying our oceans.

It tells us our planet won’t support human life the way it does now if we don’t make serious changes.…
The @IPCC_CH report has to be read to be understood. 👇
The #ClimateCrisis is a national emergency.

We need to transition to a clean energy economy and end reliance on fossil fuels.

This isn’t about politics. This is about saving our own lives. 97 percent of Earth’s water comes from our oceans.

There’s no backup.

now that we all, including @IMFNews, do virtue signalling on #ClimateCrisis and Amazon, let's talk about Ecuador.

Ecuador has a long standing legal dispute Chevron (owner of Texaco) over environmental damage to Amazonian indigenous populations and environment.
30,000 locals, including five Amazonian tribes, began lawsuit against Texaco in 1993. Plaintiffs say that Texaco knowingly dumped 18bn gallons (68bn litres) of toxic waste water and spilled 17m gallons of crude oil into north-east Ecuador rainforest…
A local court, and then the Ecuadorian Supreme Court in 2015, dictated heavy fines against Chevron.
But International Tribunal in the Hague found that Ecuador had denied Chevron fair access to justice (???) while leaving the door open for plaintiffs to bring case to the Hague

A video thread about Roger Hallam, one of the founders of #ExtinctionRebellion.👇

Maybe it’s time for other forms of peaceful protest.

First few videos cover the #ClimateCrisis. Climate scientist Prof. Jason Box supports Hallam's claims.👇

THREAD [1/19]
Roger Hallam claims that the #ClimateCrisis is not too complicated overall. Just focus on the killer facts:
"Like going to the doctor. You got something with your foot and something complicated with your arm but you’ve also got lung cancer. That’s the killer fact."

[THREAD 2/19]
Roger Hallam, Co-founder of @ExtinctionR, calls the #ParisAgreement "the biggest mass delusion in the history of humanity because it’s got this lie, that we have to stay below 2°C. The simple scientific fact of the matter is: 2°C is already locked in."

You can literally see how @GretaThunberg can’t understand how the chairman of the committee on climate change can ask her such a stupid question:

“Why should we listen to the science?”

This is from today’s testimony in Congress by four young climate activists.

[THREAD 1/11]
This is @Jamie_Margolin with one of her many great statements today:

"Right now it’s like members of government and some corporations are actively pointing a gun at children’s futures. And this is horrifying and it feels like a betrayal.”

[THREAD 2/11]
This is @BenjiBacker speaking in front of the committee on climate change of the US Congress:

“There is actually a lot of opportunity here, that we have time. Science says so.”

To all: Don’t be mistaken here. He is wrong. We don’t have time!
