"Capital is back because low growth is back" @PikettyLeMonde said, stating that decreasing growth leads to increasing #inequality. If that would be true, we have a social-ecological dilemma #degrowth. I wrote my BA about it and got the #GSÖBW price for it yesterday. Thread. 1/14
Yesterday was #GlobalClimateStrike. Many studies show: The #ClimateCrisis can only be solved if economic growth rates in the North decrease rapidly. @timparrique, @g_kallis, @jasonhickel. If decreasing growth necessarily leads to increasing inequality, we have a problem. 2/14
True,since the 1980s economic growth has decreased in Germany, while income and wealth inequality have increased @CharlyBartels @MiriamRehm. But is it a correlation or causality? I argue, political decisions led to increasing inequality, not declining growth. Four arguments: 3/14

Zur Zeit gibt es rege Diskussionen über die Rolle der Medien in der #Klimakrise. Zeitgleich gibt es eine neue #Greenwashing-Kampagne, mit der #RWE zeigen will, wie nachhaltig sie sind.🤡
Was das miteinander zu tun hat?
Ein Journalismus-Klimakrise-#Thread 👇#WirSindEuerGegenwind
Der Hauptanteil der Stromerzeugung von RWE kommt immer noch von fossilen Energieträgern. Die folgende Abbildung zeigt den RWE-Energiemix von 2019:…
Wobei der hohe Anteil fossiler Energien RWE selber peinlich zu sein scheint. Zumindest schönen sie in ihrem Social-Media-Auftritt die eigenen Zahlen. (Man beachte das Tortendiagramm und die realen Zahlen 🤯)…

Today, I will be joining the #GlobalClimateStrike in Santiago de Chile with @FFFSantiago

Since many parents are rightly worried about the police violence, which has cost the lives of several people and left 200 blinded since September, they may not allow their kids to join.

I will be staying in Santiago for the time of the climate conference #COP25 during which activist groups (who can't just easily travel to Madrid) will be organising as

1. Civil Society for Climate Action @SCAC_Chile and 2. People's Summit

/2 Image
My reasons to travel to Chile:

Voices from the Global South need to be heard and highlighted, particularly because they can't attend in Madrid. (pic is a feminist march on 25th)

The movements in Chile want int. attention for their demands and on the political situation!

THREAD: Wow. Just: wow. What an incredible day this was!

Just a week after a record 4 million people joined the #ClimateStrike on Sep 20, millions more took to the streets today.

The #GlobalClimateStrike now ranks as one of the largest coordinated protests in human history.
It really feels like we’ve entered a new era.

Today we were bold, rebellious, beautiful, strong & funny.

We wove together visions of climate, gender, social, migrant, racial & economic justice.

We were fearlessly clear: we're going to fold the status quo into a better world.
Here's how some of it went down:

Italy made people-powered history - from huge cities like Rome & Milan, to small towns & villages, market squares filled with TONS of people.

Op deze dag van de #GlobalClimateStrike vraag ik graag ook uw aandacht voor een ander mondiaal milieuprobleem: de overmaat aan reactief stikstof. Een draadje. /1
Het stikstofprobleem is - naast klimaatverandering en biodiversiteitsverlies - een van de meest prangende wereldwijde milieuproblemen. /2…
Zowel koolstof (C) als stikstof (N) volgen een natuurlijke cyclus die omwille van menselijke ingrepen grondig is verstoord. /3

Is this the moment the world wakes up? The #GlobalClimateStrike could mark a momentous shift, begun by #FridaysForFuture and @ExtinctionR, and now spreading around the world.
I sense that history will be made today. We could look back on the first #GlobalClimateStrike as an inflection point. I wouldn't miss it for anything.
I'll be at the Oxford Climate Strike (@OxYouthStrike), and talking at the rally. If you're local, hope to see you there.
