"The Green New Deal" is going to take movement tactics. Bullshit. It's global - sitting in the wings. Your consent is being engineered. Spending billions to have you demand & "fight" for it. They play with you like a cat plays with a mouse before it decapitates it. For fun.
Who else is tasked with building the social license required to implement the Global Green New Deal?

Let's start with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, & May Boeve, Executive Director of 350-DOT-org.

The #NonProfitIndustrialComplex: an extension of the ruling class.

January 23, 2020, World Economic Forum: "Striking a Green New Deal"

Note again, that the UN partnered with WEF on June 13, 2020.

A THREAD (with visuals!) on where the unicorns are around the world:
At #Davos and elsewhere recently, I’ve been in lots of discussions about nat’l competitiveness, innovation policy, etc. as we move deeper into the 4th Ind. Revolution, 2nd Machine Age, or whatever we call it.
There is no shortage of strongly held opinions on these topics, but there’s often a shortage of broad-based evidence. During one discussion, I found myself wondering where the world’s unicorns were and what, if anything, their distribution might tell us.

#SOTU President Trump is looking forward to delivering his third State of the Union Address and his fourth address to a Joint Session of Congress next Tuesday. The theme of the State of the Union is: "The Great American Comeback." In his address, the President will lay out a...
vision of relentless optimism. He will encourage #Congress to work with him to continue to building an inclusive economy where the least well-off are making some of the fastest gains and where people of every background are finding new opportunities.
The President will expand on the themes he developed in his #Davos speech earlier this month and put forward an agenda focused squarely on the needs of working families, addressing issues that affect American's quality of life and laying out solutions with can-do optimism...

[MOJO DAVOS THREAD] Here’s some things I found while smartphone-filming at the #Davos summit. The BBC team took my DSLR kit out too, but I never needed to use it. #wef20 #mojo #videojournalism
[2/] I don’t go to many big international media events like this, but I was pleasantly surprised by the number of people filming live and recorded pieces on their phones - a common sight, maybe 30%?
[3/] One clear benefit was that I was allowed to film without an official chaperone because I was using my phone - a chaperone takes time to organise

Ich möchte, sehr geehrte Leser, Ihre Aufmerksamkeit mit diesem Strang kurz auf das #Davos​sche Merkelwort von den »Transformationen von gigantischem historischen Ausmaß« lenken, das unverdient Gefahr läuft, in der allgemeinen Merkelschwurbelei unterzugehen.
Dieses Wort ist nicht zufällig in d. Merkelschen Phrasenschmiede entstanden. Es bezieht sich auf d. Begriff »Gesellschaftsvertrag f. eine Große Transformation«, den Merkels Klima-Hofschamane H. J. Schellnhuber im Jahr 2011 in einem »Gutachten« geprägt hat.…
Daß der Begriff durch Merkel gerade jetzt wieder ausgegraben wird, ist kein Zufall. Für Schellnhuber ist dieses Jahrzehnt strategisch entscheidend, wie er hier 2017 auf der Bundesdelegiertenkonferenz der Grünen Khmer erklärt:

This morning (11h45 CET) at #wef20 in #Davos: important press briefing with @KenRoth & others about #SaveDotOrg.

The heads of major NGOs are calling on @InternetSociety & @ICANN to stop the sale of the .ORG top-level domain to a private equity firm.…
The risks that civil society organizations face around the world today - surveillance, censorship, legal restrictions & even physical attacks - are bad enough. The proposed sale of .ORG would add an additional danger for non-governmental organizations. #SaveDotOrg
Journalists at #wef20 in #Davos are invited to join the press briefing on the Promenade, under the flags, at the entrance at 11h45.

[thread] Pochi fortunati possiedono più ricchezze di miliardi di poveracci. Anche quest’anno, @Oxfam diffonde il suo rapporto su #povertà e #disuguaglianze nella settimana di #Davos. Ma è davvero così?… 1/n
@Oxfam Il rapporto ripete da diversi anni un mantra: le "crescenti" disuguaglianze sono il frutto di un “sistema economico difettoso e sessista”. Per dimostrarlo, confronta i patrimoni dei miliardari con quelli delle persone normali 2/n
@Oxfam Nel passato, un numero sempre più ampio di economisti ha denunciato la metodologia di @oxfam, che confronta acriticamente grandezze diverse. Qui il rapporto e le note metodologiche: 3/n

This is going to be a very important thread.

#SavingCapitalism with

Let's start here, with this misleading article shared by the GT account.
To start. From the article:

"The theme of this year’s gathering in #Davos is “#stakeholders for a cohesive and sustainable world”. According to the forum’s website, leaders will meet to discuss ideas and improve our global progress on climate change."…
What is not shared is the primary focus:

"Focus of the meeting will be on renewing the concept of stakeholder #capitalism to overcome income inequality, societal division and the #climate crisis."

This #WEF release is new (Jan 14 2020) - but the focus & theme is not.

Pre-911 I'd not gotten into History or Geopolitics much. I didn't feel like Nations & how they ran themselves would hold many surprises. Expect folks creating a broken/backwards system to themselves be broken/backwards. #911 reminded humans how quickly this stuff can matter /23
End of the day on 911 I felt like I all I knew for sure was America was about to smoke somebody, maybe a whole bunch of somebodies & that it would be nice to know who actually did it & why. What else can you do? You wait for the President to speak. Yeah. *That* guy. /24

#EATLancet is on mission: it wants to impose its Great Food Transformation on the planet (& your plate for that matter). How? By eliminating consumer choice & using “hard policy interventions” – what do they mean, how do they plan to achieve that & should you care?

Enters the @WorldResources Institute: a 'knowledge partner' of the #EAT-Lancet cluster, founded in 1982 & like EAT a close partner of the World Economic Forum (@wef), @UNEnvironment & their industry platform @wbcsd (incl. the major food multinationals) – what is it’s role?

As #EATLancet's partner, @WorldResources is in charge of the social engineering bit, for instance by applying the “Shift Wheel” approach to “#DisguiseTheChange”, make meat “socially unacceptable” & “constrain its display” – 🤨 So, what else do they have in mind?

¿Qué hay tras la adolescente sueca @GretaThunberg, esa "heroína juvenil"que llama a combatir el cambio climático y que recientemente lanzó la convocatoria mundial #FridayForFuture? No es todo tan espontáneo como parece. [Hilo informativo] 👇👇👇
La figura de Thunberg como "activista" se construye mediante una campaña de marketing lanzada en 2018 desde Estocolmo por la fundación privada "We Don't Have Time" (@WeDontHaveTime0), cuya junta está conformada por personas vinculadas al mundo empresarial.
Se trata de una fabricación mediática con un guión planificado: La prensa le da notoriedad mundial difundiendo masivamente sus intervenciones en 2018 en la Cumbre del Clima de Naciones Unidas (#COP24) en #Katowice y en 2019 en el Foro Económico Mundial de #Davos.

It's a very sweet idea but it'll fall on deaf ears. The super wealthy are thinking that either they or their children will escape in spaceships to explore the stars -> 'Our house is on fire': Greta Thunberg, 16, urges leaders to act on climate -…
This is why I left the environmental field back tine mid 90s. We knew the problems heading our way, that the "elite" would fail to act, that they would look for other solutions which didn't damage their economic position and that Government was too weak ...
... a green revolution back in the mid 90s might have worked but today? Well, most people I know in the field haven't been talking about stopping the calamity for years but instead mechanisms for surviving. The only bright light in a dismal field of "leadership" is China.

The point I tried to make on Newsnight is that it's not enough for "influencers" at Davos to ask heads of industry and government if they would kindly do something about climate breakdown. This is about power, and it requires the political fight of our lives.
The idea that all it takes is for the right "influencers" to say the right things to the oligarchs who have been trashing the planet is so naive it is not worth discussing. Unfortunately the BBC seemed to feel it is the most important aspect to discuss.
This is about power. The oligarchs have got it, and all those who believe in both democracy and a future for humanity should seek to wrench it back from them. #Davos is the last place on earth where necessary change will happen. It represents the problem, not the solution.
