Wenn du mir ein großes Geschenk machen willst:
Informiere dich ausführlich über die aktuelle Lage der #Klimakrise und ökologischen Krise durch einen #XR-Talk oder einen #S4F-Talk. Mir bekannte Talk-Termine: cutt.ly/talks
XR-Talks gibt's vlt. auch bald von mir. \1
Warum dieser Wunsch? Je mehr man sich informiert, desto besser versteht man den Ernst der Lage. Fast wöchentlich gibt es neue Einsichten der Wissenschaft über die bisherige Unterschätzung der Lage und Überschätzung der Handlungsspielräume. Leider überhaupt kein schönes Thema. \2
Niemand erzählt gerne ununterbrochen allen Freunden und Bekannten, wie schlecht und traurig alles ist. Scheiß Thema. Und dennoch muss es das höchste Ziel sein, allen in der Bevölkerung das Ausmaß und die Aussichten dieser Krise nahe zu bringen. Schönreden hatten wir 40 Jahre. \3

Sehr geehrter @JoeKaeser,
ich bin Arzt in einer Großpraxis in #Bielefeld. Hier stehen moderne @Siemens-Großgeräte im Wert von mehreren Millionen Euro.
Thread🔽
(1/4)
In der Vergangenheit habe ich mehrfach potenziellen @Siemens-Kunden diese Geräte demonstriert. Wie ich hörte, sowohl zur Zufriedenheit dieser Kunden als auch der Siemens-Verkäufer. (#TellTheTruth.)

Die #Klimakrise ist auch eine Gesundheitskrise (@healthforfuture). Als Arzt und als Vater habe ich die Verantwortung, alles mir mögliche zu tun, um die drohende #Klimakatastrophe abzuwenden.

Tag 12 im #EverydayClimateStrike

Ein Thread:

Heute war es etwas einsam. Das war frustrierend. Es war kalt, obwohl die Sonne schien. Andererseits viel zu warm für den Dezember. Es zeichnet sich ein Muster ab.

Meine Zehen froren und meine Finger kribbelten. (1)
#Klimastreik
Zuvor sagte ich, die Unterstützung wächst und auch diesmal war ich natürlich nicht ganz alleine. Ein paar Leute sprachen mir ihre Solidarität aus und eine Frau brachte mir ein belegtes Brot und einen Kaffee. Ein Pärchen am Hochzeitstag gaben mir warme Worte mit. (2)
Es passierte allerdings noch weit mehr:
Mitarbeiter oder Politiker der #AfD Fraktion im #Landtag pöbelten und beleidigten mich heute. Ein weiterer Mann, den ich nicht zuordnen konnte sprühte eines meiner Schilder an, zum Glück nicht sehr viel, so dass ich es korrigieren kann. (3)

The sun is red and the #sydneysmoke is thick in the sky this morning. Vast areas of the country are ablaze.

So, what should our political leaders do in the crisis?

Here are seven suggestions:
1. Protecting Sydney's kids shouldn’t be a lottery of who happened to get to Bunnings first. The government should be procuring and distributing free face masks to all children.

2. The heat and smoke is a direct threat to the lives and wellbeing of the homeless, aged and sick. There needs to be urgent provision of extra care for the most vulnerable. We must look after our own.

Die Klimakrise und die Angst vor dem Tod.

Oder: Warum Otto die #Klimakrise nicht (bewusst) fürchtet.

Ein Thread.

#Angst #Yalom #NoDenial #TellTheTruth #Klimaschweigen
Otto ist auf Twitter. Dort sieht er diesen Thread von @ClimateBen. Bei der Hälfte hört er auf zu lesen. “Brauch ich nicht, den Quatsch”, denkt er. Oder “völlig übertrieben, was soll das?”. Oder er lässt sich vom nächsten Tweet ablenken. Ein Katzenvideo. 😺
Otto weiß: wenn wir jetzt handeln, dann könnten wir noch etwas gegen die #Klimakrise tun. Dann wären die Folgen vielleicht nicht so schlimm. Trotzdem schaut er weg.

Vielleicht spielt sich für einen sehr kurzen Moment folgendes in ihm ab: ...

💚 Rebels 📢

First weekend of the #InternationalRebellion is here and you may be wondering: “Are our actions on the streets enough to tip the scales?”

Honestly? 🚫 Mass civil disobedience on its own won’t achieve system change.

Intrigued? 👀 Keep reading ⬇️

History (both distant and recent) tells us that we not only need a broad coalition of people, but also of tactics!

And no, that doesn’t just mean many different ways of shutting down the streets... though we have to give credit for the creativity where credit is due 😉

We’ve gathered some of the 🔑 ingredients necessary for making this moment a truly global movement that is for everyone, everywhere 🌎🌍🌏

(We’re sure to have missed loads of important stuff out, so please add your own examples to the thread!)

IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER 🥁🥁🥁

Being autistic means I don't have a fucking choice in the games the people around me play or the ability to consent in whether or not I want to play those games. I don't. I don't consent.
Being autistic means that people get to pretend I'm crazy and every one else can nod their sweaty heads in agreement when I say things like, "You're attempting to justify abuse for financial gain."
Being autistic means that you can pretend I'm socially inept because I don't care what you think. And I really don't.

#Groupthink

Was die Bundesregierung für die nächsten Gruppengespräche beachten könnte. @cducsubt @spdbt

John F. Kennedy (bzgl. der Entscheidung, die Schweinebucht anzugreifen): “How could we have been so stupid?”

Der Sozialpsychologe Irvin Janis (1918-1990) stellte sich die Frage:

🤔 Wie kann es sein, dass kompetente Menschen in Gruppen immer wieder zu realitätsfernen Entscheidungen kommen?

Die Antwort fasste er unter dem Namen #Groupthink (1971, 1982) zusammen.
In diesem Thread geht es um:

✅ Die Definition von #Groupthink und wann es auftritt,
✅ Die Symptome von #Groupthink, sowie
✅ Vorschläge an @CDU und @spdde, um Vorkehrungen gegen potentielles #Groupthink zu treffen.

If one of the world's most respected climate scientists has to explain the impacts of the #ClimateCrisis in just 2 minutes, it sounds like that.👇That's the essence.

#TellTheTruth #WeDontHaveTime

[THREAD 1/2]
This was Prof. Will Steffen in Canberra, May 2016.

If you can take a few more minutes, you should really have a look at this longer presentation by Will Steffen. This is one of the clearest illustrations of the climate crisis that I know.👇



[THREAD 2/2]
To all of you who think, we might have time to stop global warming at 2.5°C: Main message here is, that tipping cascades could turn #ClimateChange into an express lift. If we miss our stop at somewhat about 2°C, we might be rushing straight towards 4°C, 5°C or more. #TellTheTruth

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/ Dear @ExtinctionR, your #EastLondonUprising leaflet claims that @hackneycouncil's declaration of a #climateemergency has "not led on to
any political action." Firstly, @HackneyLabour had one of the most ambitious decarbonisation programmes in the country before XR existed...
2/ ...so, while we recognise the value in codifying the things we're doing and intend to do in a #climateemergency motion, we were taking a lead without it. If you doubt this, I suggest you engage with our work on decarbonising the energy system...
3/ ...or our work on active travel, from School Streets...

I was arrested on Saturday with my wife Meg. We celebrated our one-year anniversary from jail. Here's Meg being put into a van by four NYPD officers. 1/12
We protested with #ExtinctionRebellion in front of the @nytimes building, to demand that media outlets and journalists update the language they use to describe the climate crisis. #EarthToMedia #TellTheTruth 2/12
"Climate change" is a misleading term for a global disaster this epic. "Climate emergency" and "climate crisis" is more truthful. The crisis is insidious because of how it appears to unfold in slow motion. But on a *generational* timescale, it's a sudden meltdown. 3/12

My name is Elsie Luna.
I am here today in Berlin at the @BBC offices,
standing with #ExtinctionRebellion in London.
No, I am not here to beg the BBC
to let me watch BBC programs outside the UK,
but because I want them to declare a climate emergency on the BBC.
1/11
I care about climate change because I don’t want people to die.
I don’t want to have a future
where the planet I am living on
has seas, acidic and rising,
and an atmosphere
full of pollution and space litter.
I don’t want to see all these species go extinct.
2/11
I won’t let that happen.
People say I shouldn’t be doing this.
Really I kind of agree,
it is not my fault,
and the adults should really be taking responsibility.
But they are not,
so why not protect the planet if no one else is?

Real quick. So some super pervert paid out $400k to settle a sexual harassment claim and that transaction took place under our Attorney General @AGBecerra and then @KamalaHarris hired him and that’s cool with #metoo?
This State is so corrupt. @latimes
This guy made women crawl on the floor and @KamalaHarris brought him to Washington.

Bull s**t you didn’t know Kamala you were the ATTORNEY GENERAL.
