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.

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

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.

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.
