"First, we need to acknowledge that our collective failures as humanity to live within planetary boundaries"

No. This is the failure of the capitalist system, & global/industrial civ. Not collective, but Anglo-led.

["our collective failure"] to respect the wisdom of our ancient ancestors, [] & health experts...

Indigenous peoples rep. less than 5% of population, - yet manage 25% land & support approx. 80% all biodiversity. Instead of listening/learning - you turn a blind eye to genocide.
Club of Rome & partners turn a blind eye to ongoing torture, murder, rape, displacement of Indigenous Peoples (#WWF). Now, working w/ the corporations/entities that have plundered the natural world, you push for further displacement of #Indigenous via #NewDealForNature.

On June 13, 2019 The World Economic Forum entered into partnership w/ the United Nations (essentially taking it over in an official capacity). The WEF is now at the helm of the so-called "sustainable" development goals - via the implementing of said "solutions" (markets, etc).
On May 11, 2020, the World Economic Forum, "acting as partner to the World Health Organization", launched an emergency task force to respond to the novel coronavirus outbreak. #Covid_19 #COVID19 #WHO #WEF

The task force is called the "COVID Action Platform" for business & has more than 200 corporate members, including Alphabet (#Google), Nasdaq Inc, KPMG, & HP. It appears that access to the #WEF-#WHO online "COVID Action Platform" is limited to WEF members/partners.

Shills for "The Future We Choose" - round up #2.

Not a coincidence. The majority of those promoting this book are both white & wealthy. #Ecological crisis will never be resolved by the ruling classes. It cannot be resolved within the same economic system that created it.
The Guardian rolls out the red carpet for "The Future We Choose". Par for the capitalist course.

As the former CEO of #WeMeanBusiness, recently appointed by the UK Govt as the High Level Climate Action Champion for UN climate talks, #COP26, of course Nigel Topping is excited.
"It's about human lives"

This anthropocentric ideology appears to be an infectious disease amongst the "enlightened eco-capitalists". It demonstrates that they are absolutely disconnected from the natural world.

#TheFutureTheyChoose will reboot the system destroying Earth.

"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"

I finally got around to watching the Apocalypse Cow documentary (Channel 4, George Monbiot) the other night. Like Monbiot, I do not eat meat/fish or drink milk. I'm still gathering my thoughts on the doc,. however, here are my thoughts thus far.
All nature is now being recognized as an object to be bought/sold, traded on wall street. And this is what perhaps bother me most about the doc. As I can see the intent / purpose behind it. It's not as though Monbiot does not know about the #NewDealForNature. He does.
Consider most, if not all of his "allies" are at the helm or support the #NewDealForNature, led by WEF, WWF, UN, Natural Capital Coalition, Conservation Int., etc. And of course, both Monbiot & Thunberg did the promotional video for CI. #Celebrity is utilized to serve capital.

#Branding

Thread. 2020: The Brave New World of (Faux) #Activism

(Financed by the profit generated by the most egregious corporations on the planet that are systematically destroying the very ecosystems supporting all life. $ funneled through tax-exempt foundations into NGOs)
It is quite incredible. Look at the messaging from the institutions set up to monetize nature (#NewDealForNature). Natural Capital Coalition, UNEP, etc. etc.

They are now drenched in emotive images of beautiful animals & our natural world.
Now, in comparison, look at the messaging from the dominant "environmental" NGOs such as Greenpeace, 350, Avaaz, etc. etc.

They are now drenched in images of tech & so-called renewable energies deemed "good" by populace. The natural world has been effectively buried by tech.

Greta™

In reality, the trademark should be property of those that created the brand. Namely, We Mean Business in partnership with the #UN & partner, World Economic Forum.

Callum Grieve: We Mean Business architect. Thunberg handler. #Branding expert.

theartofannihilation.com/a-100-trillion…
We Mean Business: 1,176 corporations rep. 24.8 trillion market cap.

Aside from how ridiculous it is to feign disapproval that a #brand created by/serving the most powerful institutions/ corporations on the planet is being misused, I want to touch upon a couple of things.
Jan 29 2020, GT: "I apologize to anyone who has been contacted - and even misled - by this kind of behavior."

Sep 25 2019, GT: "...my clothes, my behaviour and my differences. They come up with every thinkable lie and conspiracy theory."

1) behavior
2) behaviour

Thread 1/- So Gretas mum, a WWF (those destroyers of indigenous tribes) Environmental Hero of the Year, tried to interest TV companies in making a documentary series on her daughter. Greta's "spontaneous" original climate strike from school just happened to be filmed by a >>
2/-...Full documentary crew and a network of twitter accounts just happened to be set up to spread the news. Greta's social media has recently been found to have been written by her dad and a guy in India and a huge network of capitalism interacts with everything she does >>
3/-..So what's it all about then? Well, as always, if you want to know, it's best to follow the money. There are a variety of ways in which declaring a "climate emergency" (whether you believe global warming caused by human CO2 exists or not) can do this >>

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."

theguardian.com/commentisfree/…
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.

"Happy 2020. It's going to be a big year"

"Will our government and business leaders act on the triple emergency of climate, nature and poverty, or will business as usual win?...
"What would life be like in 2030 if restoring nature, stabilising our climate & making strides in human development & poverty reduction were daily priorities for all gov'ts & every business for the decade starting in 2020?"

Yes. This is beyond grotesque. Klein references a Bolivian initiative under the Morales gov't - as a lure to promote the GND - without a single acknowledgment to the coup itself.

What Klein does not reference is far more compelling: the 2010 People's Agreement of Cochabamba.
The Cochabamba People's Agreement (April 2010) came out of the Bolivian World People's Conference on Climate Change and the Rights of Mother Earth conference. It was Indigenous-led, with people attending from around the world. #Bolivia

theartofannihilation.com/350-agent-sabo…
#Whiteness and racism played a key role at this conference.

350's (Klein serves on the board) sole purpose for attending the conference in Bolivia was to literally undermine the host country’s official policy position on climate change (300 ppm, 1ºC limit, etc.)

Just like clockwork. World Economic Forum - the movie.

On October 28, 2019, the documentary The Forum, opened the 62nd edition of German documentary festival (DOK Leipzig).

Because "to change everything, we need everyone".

Director Marcus Vetter: "Eventually we have to overcome some of our preconceptions. The elite may not appear as evil as we think they are. There are good and bad people..."
con't: "The film is asking the question, 'Is there not maybe still a middle way, one in which everyone comes together instead of separating from one another?'"

No, this was not co-optation. This was and is PR.

A super short timeline.

May 2018: a teleconference led by a 350/Fossil Free rep. & Climate Reality Project (Al Gore NGO) proposes a large climate march. Greta Thunberg partakes in this call as well as others that transpire.
The idea of a strike came about. Thunberg was receptive.

May 2018: Rentzhog is in contact with Greta's mother (Malena Ernman) at a conference.

June 2018: The Thunberg social media accounts are created.
August 20 2018: Greta sits on a sidewalk. Ingmar Rentzhog, CEO of We Don't Have Time discovers "the lonely girl".

We Don't Have Time is a partner of The Climate Reality Project.

And now a word from those behind the climate strikes. The We Mean Business co-founders et al. They thank you, for without you, there is no saving the ruling classes & the suicidal system killing us.

Let's take a look.

1st up-The co-founder of We Mean Business liked this one
If you are not caught up with We Mean Business, you may find Volume II ACT V worth your time:

Here is another that Grieve appears to like.

Greta: "We don't want to be heard."

I wonder what adult taught @GretaThunberg to hate democracy? Wall Street wants to heard - as does We Mean Business et al. (And today sadly they were).

This Carbon Markets refauxlution has been planned for years by the World Bank, IMF, NGO's and global corporate interests. Get ready for more shilling and praising the global wartime-style economic plunder and global taxing of all life. Big $ eugenics lurks under the green mask
The "4th industrial Revolution" will be sold as the solution - financialization of all resources and "carbon" in a global market where all resources (including us, who are considered human cattle), movement, and action are tracked by global big tech/date for the World Bank/IMF.
This is the reason behind the #climatecrisis war propaganda that's been blasted into our skulls for decades - the "threat" must be met in a global war effort, the consolidation of all economies into Carbon Markets. Guess who stands to benefit from this massive theft?

New Deal For Nature picks up speed. Here we have Global Deal for Nature. All language/marketing leads to Global Deal For Billionaires.

"© Copyright Global Deal for Nature, a project of Sustainable Markets Foundation"

All aboard the Global New Deals for Nature train. #NewDealForNature, Voice for the Planet, Global Deal For Nature. Here we have science is being used as a tool and even a weapon to privatize the commons under the guise of protecting nature, climate & biodiversity.
We are subjected to the branding "United Behind the Science" with a heavy emphasis from the face of the campaign (exploited Thunberg) to "listen to the science". Unite Behind the Science is not meant to protect Earth. It is meant to unleash a new era of privatization & plunder.

I've been finishing the second volume of "The Manufacturing of Greta Thunberg for Consent" series. As soon as I ventured near social media I was inundated with the Amazon fires messaging.
The World Economic Forum (billionaires club): "...the house is clearly on fire - We need to scale solutions now if we have any chance of saving it."

Corporations burning forests for palm oil: not frightening.
Forest fires: frightening.

Only the markets can save us.

Certification schemes. Green Bonds. A "New Deal For Nature". We need momentum. We need that "Paris moment".

Today we are going to play a game. The game is called "Which is more valuable". This is not a parody. This was published as an interactive game on BBC in 2015. It's demonstrating how markets can (& will) value the natural world.

Let's play.

#1
If you said "acre of oyster reef" - you were right.

Next question...
#2

Which is more valuable?

1. At a glance. The real reason for the climate strikes, Green New Deal(s) (as the Trojan horse for the New Deal For Nature) – all being unveiled as the necessary solutions for our collective survival - lies bare for all to see in the links below. #GND #NewDealForNature
2. The aforementioned "solutions", presented in tandem w/ the climate emergency campaign unleashed last fall, swiftly inundating our collective psyches – have been brought to you by the ruling class (World Bank, WEF, European Commission, etc.) & the NGOs that serve capital.
3. This is nothing to do with concern over the climate nor the environment. This is about propelling economic growth (by any and every means necessary) – to save (then expand) the capitalist economic system that is failing - and nothing more.
