Thread: Blatant #ClimateDenial has lost. The new conflict is whether #ClimateChange is a crisis requiring urgent social and #economic transformation, or something we can adapt to incrementally while carrying on with business as usual. 1/40
2/ A recent opinion piece by Bjorn Lomborg in the @globeandmail is representative of the 'business as usual argument'. Let's deconstruct it to see how this gets passed off as the pragmatic point of view, and why it's false. theglobeandmail.com/opinion/articl…
3/ The basic tactic is this: provide a few common-sense truths to gain the air of pragmatism and then feed us the story we're desperate to hear: that everything will be fine, that growth will outpace #ClimateDamages and life can carry on as usual.

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.

good morning! This thread is brought to you from the shores of Awaba on unceded lands of the Awabakal.
#Insiders host Fran Kelly opens with truly nauseating US sycophancy. Howard was a man of steel; Morison is a man of titanium. This toxic masculinity is topped with some toxic mateship. The US is still locked and loaded, says Fran🤮
the #Insiders montage is audio tracked by Kids in America. Clips of Trump telling Iran “you’re a joke” like the immature bully he is. Morrison saying thanks mate to uncertain chuckles. That’s the best punch line he’s delivered in a lifetime: “thanks mate”.

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 science.sciencemag.org/content/347/62…
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.
