Over the last 12 months, @isabellasaund and I have had the privilege of working with @socprogress to develop Australia's first Social Progress Index.… @CSIsocialimpact
@isabellasaund @socprogress @CSIsocialimpact Why measure #socialprogress? We live in a country that prioritises economic growth and #GDP over pretty much everything else. The logic goes that if economic progress increases, so should social progress.
@isabellasaund @socprogress @CSIsocialimpact But we know that's not the case - we know that the mining boom, while contributing to 28 years of unprecedented economic growth, has also had ongoing impacts on communities and the environment where mining companies have now left.

//Thread// Here’s a snapshot of some of the key ways we are currently supporting people caught up in the fire emergencies in NSW, VIC, SA and WA:

🔥The #bushfirecrisis in #Australia is no joke🔥

#Mallacoota THREAD

These arresting images are from residents of the small town of #Mallacoota at 10.30AM!!!! as they huddled on a wharf and watched flames come towards them from multiple fronts.

@GretaThunberg @AlexandriaV2005 @ClimateKristin @SameeraSavarala @EricHolthaus @MikeHudema @MichaelEMann @ap4ca @350Australia @GeraldKutney @KHayhoe #Mallacoota is a small town of about 4000 people in the state of #Victoria. There's one road in/out of town but no-one could use it to evacuate. Everyone was ordered to the town wharf to wait out the #bushfire, sitting ready in life jackets.

7 months ago Scott Morrison rejected a report warning of these fires because it mentioned climate change as an aggravating factor. Then the Coalition cut $75m from fire prevention and RFS.
The Coalition have blood on their hands. #bushfires #auspol #climatechange #NSWRFS #nsw
Climate change is not political. Saying the sky is blue is not political. Climate change denial IS political. Lying to further the interests of fossil fuel companies is political in the worst way. #ClimateCrisis #ClimateAction #ClimateActionNow
@CDpay73 For what it's worth, I have since read varying figures saying the cuts varied from as low as "$20m per year" to "$40m" and "35% of the total budget". However, these figures were from NSW alone.

My town #Coonabarabran #Coona sits in NW of #NSW . Just North is the #Pilliga forest, to south & west #WarrumbungleNatPark & #SidingSpringObservatory. Rich farmlands surround it. But it is under threat from #climatebreakdown #schoolstrike4climate
#Coona district is in severe #drought & #waterstress our council Dam is so low that new bores had to be sunk for town’s supply. Farming families are worn down with feeding stock & stress. Paddocks are baked dry #climatebreakdown is reality #SchoolStrike4Climate
In our gardens, forests and farms trees are dying as we face our second #autumn in drought. We are reliant on bore water from the #GreatArtesianBasin to survive #climatebreakdown is a daily reality. #SchoolStrike4climate

Vou cometer uma thread aqui que vai muito além talvez do que vi originalmente num tweet que tá circulando [de modo que o problema não é o tweet, mas algo que me parece implícito nele], mas como não é mais #nsw me senti liberado pra fazer ainda assim.
Essa ideia de que não se tem responsabilidade com a realidade, que se tem o direito de ficar emitindo “eu avisei” em repeat pois não se está comprometido com ativismos ou militância me parece apenas uma outra face da disposição neoliberal atual [o empresário-de-si meritocrático].
Eu entendo que responsabilidade é um termo que causa repulsa pela associação com a noção de culpa, de um ~dever~, mas ela pode ser compreendida como o reconhecimento da consequência das nossas ações posturas que segue independentemente dos nossos desejos.
