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:

It's been good these last few days to read some comradely critiques of #XR coming from various positions.

Here's an excellent thread from @XRLiberation which seems to be a group mostly within UK XR (rebellion.earth/2019/10/05/sta…)

This open letter from experienced #Paris activists who've been trying to work with XR there:

It's the moment you've been waiting for - @bathnes full council. Public speaking is over and now we're onto the main business, starting with a progress report on what the council's been doing to tackle the #ClimateEmergency
somersetlive.co.uk/news/somerset-…
@bathnes Cllr Sarah Warren, cabinet member for climate emergency, says: "I therefore appeal to colleagues, to support [the motion], so that we can continue to move rapidly towards a carbon-neutral future, as a community united around the science and the urgency of the need for transition"
@bathnes Conservative leader Paul Myers is "bitterly disappointed" in the lack of detail and leadership set out in the report.

A dark tweet, sorry about this.
We learned yesterday that scientific expedition in the east siberian arctic just found methane fountains bubbling on the sea surface .

"WE ABSOLUTELY DO NOT LIKE WHAT WE SEE THERE"

Natalia Shakhova doesn't agree with the #ipcc, which doesn't take the ESAS risk into account for calculating the various #RCP ..or any feedback loops including #CH4

Even the best intentions don't excuse the lack of research or reasoning. Where to start? Obvs, motor vehicle licenses barely cover their own plate and admin costs and they are "permissions" to take giant dangerous moving objects through public space, a public trust. 1/n #ldnont
Next, obviously people on bikes are pretty much regular people even if they are BIKE RIDING PINKOS and, although they should get tax breaks for riding a bike some of the time (I mean it, they should), they don't. They pay taxes & pay for roads even if they only use a sliver. 2/n
In fact, it's motoring that is subsidized by the public purse. In ever so many ways that include propping up a failing industry, for example, but also directly. It takes many more of us to pay for roads than actually use them. A simple search tells you about costs of modes. 3/n

Dear .@Cathmckenna yesterday I allowed my rage to take over when I saw both you & .@JustinTrudeau tweeting about #GretaThunberg & #climatestrikecanada #ClimateStrike.

Your work & this moment in history deserves more compassionate & thoughtful response, so here it is: THREAD
@cathmckenna @JustinTrudeau I admire your strength & commitment and as a woman who is attacked & threatened for my work I appreciate what you have been going through.

As a Canadian I also appreciate the coal phase out, the price on pollution & other elements of your climate platform but.../2

@cathmckenna @JustinTrudeau I knocked on doors in the last elxn to help this govt get elected b/c I was so horrified by the lost decade of climate inaction in Canada under the Harper govt & I believed you when you promised prorep, climate test for pipelines, stronger targets science based policy & UNDRIP/3

Thread on India's actions to address the Climate Emergency #FridaysForFuture @GretaThunberg @GeorgeMonbiot
India in its NDC committed to:
(a) Create an additional carbon sink of 2.5 to 3 billion tonnes of CO2 equivalent through additional forest and tree cover by 2030.
(b) Reduce the emissions intensity of its GDP by 33 to 35 percent by 2030 from 2005 level.

#Children

My association with schools brings me many invitations to attend their annual social events. (Annual gathering - Oldspeak)

Since last 15-20 years a constant theme of these events is Pollution, Waste management, Environment Protection
and not cutting trees.

From Kindergarten to Senior schools, children do same orchestrated dramas for adult audience that is only interested in clicking best possible snap of their lovely child.
There is no change in BEHAVIOUR of most children. They leave lights on, waste food and paper, constantly demand more and new stuff, fancy holidays and throw their trash everywhere.
Ideally school should not need sweepers if our children were actually well behaved.

Welcome!
I’m tweeting from the first part of the Southwark Council Planning Committee hearing into the Canada Water Masterplan.
I’m with the local residents objectors group.
Now that the housekeeping is out the way, we’re on to the real business...
We’ve had very little time to digest the 244 page planning report, which (unsurprisingly) recommends approval.
The report is here:

Flyer: docs.wixstatic.com/ugd/9a5b93_73a…
@NewEconomyNYC We begin with a land acknowledgement, recognize the centuries of the Lenape people living on and caring for this land
@NewEconomyNYC We will talk about how the same systems that had a devastating impact on these people are the systems having a devastating impact on the earth.

These systems affect our ability to feel good about ourselves, to think, to do our work.

Workshop begins on "Backing #Women and #Girls to Lead in #SustainableAgriculture" #ClimateWeekNYC
There were people, particularly women and girls, on this land for 1000s of years. Some are still here, and we thank them for the caring of the land that they have done.
We are glad to have participants from @CAREGlobal, @nature_org, @girlscouts, US State Dept office of Global Food Security, and so many from around the world working on #UNSDGs

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.

People in the Keys are already packing their bags. I have just enough time to go see them while we still have them. #RoadTrip

CHAPTER: The pathway to inclusive, zero-carbon cities.
To hold temperature increases to no more than 1.5°C, science tells us that cities everywhere must reach net-zero CO2 emissions by mid-century. The #UrbanOpportunity report shows how to achieve that.
Deploying proven low-carbon measures in cities could cut emissions from key urban sectors by 90%. These carbon savings equate to the energy-related emissions of China🇨🇳 and the U.S.🇺🇸 combined - more than half the energy-related emission reductions needed to be on a 2°C pathway.

So my husband got a visit this morning, a registered Democrat. We talked politics. He said he liked Bernie, but (he is in his 60s, watches MSM): "Bernie can't win against Trump" "Why am I not voting for a woman." Suffice to say after 30 min we have another BERNIE primary voter!!!
Conclusion: engage EVERYBODY. People over 50 are relying too much on MSM. The MOMENT I pivoted to the issues, he agreed with everything I said. I told him Bernie polls great against Trump and has more dedicated supporters (donors and volunteers).
I recommended Joe Rogan and Killer Mike interviews with Bernie on You Tube, to check his registration as a Democrat to make sure he can vote in NY primary. Surprisingly for a guy his age he was worried most about Climate Change(has kids, grandkids and is SMART).

1. A thread on #Vancouver city-building, politics & bikes:

I’ve still got a lot of optimism about most of our new city council, but I’m still hearing the concern that they are trying too hard to distance themselves from work/directions of the #VisionVancouver terms of Council.
2. This may be particularly true regarding safe bike infrastructure, & the still badly needed work toward getting to the next level in bike mode share, & making our bike infrastructure safe & comfortable for all ages & abilities. See here for more on #AAA: fastcompany.com/90361034/if-on…
3. I’m not here to defend #VisionVancouver, but one thing that’s long been true here in #Vancouver is that new councils have generally built on past successes, rather than undoing or reversing (as we’ve unfortunately seen in many other cities). That’s how we’ve made progress...

.@ewarren attempts to explain away her years as a registered Republican as a time when she "wasn't very political." Don't believe it. She was, as people who knew her at the time attest, a "diehard conservative."
politico.com/magazine/story…
@ewarren A diehard conservative who was, in fact, "surprisingly anti-consumer."
@ewarren So vehement was her conservativsm, in fact, that it provoked some unusual reactions from listeners.

After decades of messaging like this, is it any surprise that many parents are scared to let their kids walk or bike to school (or be judged for doing so)? A thread... #BackToSchool #FreeRangeKids
The reduction in walking & biking among kids has been one of the most effective social engineering initiatives of the past 50 years. Look at that behaviour change!
Powerful messaging combined with car-centric development have radically shifted how children move.

Stark prospect. Oxygen deprivation. Can't be rest assured, w/ inherent risks of lack of Co2. Amassing looters, expunging such a large carbon footprint. Selling land for quick profits. #AmazonFire
2/n In sync with axes at the grind -- leading to inevitable deforestation. Coming dawn of no less, extinction of the planetary ecosystem. This disastrous outcome with many factors have been congregating for many years, now. #ClimateStrike
3/n And, where I helm. Nor in any respect "us" Aussies or elsewhere immune. The die has already been cast, and triggers of misuse — via politician's have ignited by fusion of friction. The vein has already been mined. Global problem besetting the world remains unresolved. #Change
