While the @bcndp gov’t struggles with the severe impacts of flooding that are a result of the worsening #ClimateCrisis they are diverting critical #RCMP resources into #Wetsuweten territory again to protect the gov’ts #frackedgas pipeline 1/ #bcpoli #LNG
When @geoffmeggs delivered the news to the @bcgreencaucus that the @bcndp were going to support the #CGL #frackedgas pipeline I asked him how they would deal with the long-established blockades on #Wetsuweten territory. He said it was under control. Clearly not! 2/ #bcpoli
The chaos in Crown-Indigenous relations has been created by a @bcndp gov’t whose words and actions are not aligned. Say one thing, do another. @MurrayRankinNDP was on the #Wetsuweten file since early 2020 when he was brought in to mop up the mess gov’t created. #FAIL 3/ #bcpoli

New Fortress Energy put in their planning application recently for #ShannonLNG, which they call STEP. This is a thread about the massive climate threat contained in their plans and the blatant #greenwash plastered all through their application 1/
While NFE say this is "A STEP toward Zero" what they also say is "Direct emissions from the operation of the Proposed Development will equate to approximately 963kt CO2e in 2030, around 2.1% of Ireland’s carbon allowance if Ireland’s carbon reduction targets are met." 2/

The nuclear industry always exploits and harms Indigenous communities.

Dr. Tommy Rock explains that the Navajo Nation contains over 500 abandoned uranium mines, which leads to contaminated water.
Uranium enters people’s bodies through inhalation, ingestion, absorption, and circulation.


The Navajo Nation has a right to clean water and healthy air!
"We need to shift from a Western approach to public health to a holistic, Indigenous approach." - Dr. Tommy Rock
