On March 26 2020 the Club of Rome published an open letter: Call to Action from the Planetary Emergency Partnership*: Emerging from the Planetary Emergency and partnering between People and Nature"…
"#Covid19 has shown us that overnight transformational change is possible. A different world, a different economy is suddenly dawning."

The transformational change consists of a multi-pronged global transformation. The finalization of nature (#NewDealForNature) & reboot to #4IR.
First signatories to the open letter include Christiana Figueres, Sandrine Dixson (Co-President of The Club of Rome) Kate Raworth, Johan Rockström (#CI), & Hunter Lovins.

We are reacting to the #UNFCCC text and stocktake now.
It would be a betrayal of people around the world, suffering from the impacts & those that are calling for action. The 🇨🇱presidency had 1 job, protect the integrity of the Paris agreement & not allow it to be torn apart by cynicism & greed. Right now it is failing. @climatemorgan
@mohadow: At the very least, we want to see revived the enhancements to the NDCs. If that doesn't come through, it will have failed. The second thing that is most important for this process is that we don't undermine the environmental integrity of the deal.

So. We staged an action at #COP25 to call out rich countries for refusing to support people impacted by the climate crisis & lobbying for carbon markets that would allow them to continue business as usual (plus profits). And then #UNFCCC security went berserk. (1/?)
#UNFCCC security literally forced us out a side door into the cold European winter & closed a heavy metal door behind us. We were escorted off the premises by Spanish police w/armored cars. All for telling the truth about the rich countries blocking any real action from #COP25.
We were told we would be de-badged and not let back into #COP25 for the crime of speaking up against the travesty that's happening here: rich countries literally consigning millions of people to die because of their refusal to take responsibility for their actions. #UNFCCC

I know, I know. Don't engage the trolls. Sorry @GretaThunberg @ScienceNotDogma but that "500 Scientists" story is gaining waaaay too much traction, and I'm feeling fighty. Most of the press are just parroting the PR and that's feeding the trolls. So, prepare to be threaded...
Background: A letter headlined "There is no climate emergency" was delivered to the #UNFCCC on 23 Sept, claiming that the "European Climate Declaration" was signed by 500 scientists and professionals. Of those 500, more than 150 are NOT Europeans. Soooo....
Even more preplexing, a large percentage of the signatories are NOT associated with the natural sciences at all, and many of the "professionals" are in the pocket of the #FossilFuels mafia. We can get a rough idea of this pact's make up by looking at their so-called Ambassadors.
