For #EarthDay, a few classic @motherjones pieces that had they been headed, we'd be a lot better off. Here's @billmckibben piece laying out the science for the 350 ppm goal that later became the namesake for @350 motherjones.com/environment/20…
@MotherJones @billmckibben @350 2/ Bill's piece was in 2008. Two years before THAT, Julia Whitty warned us of the interlocking climate tipping points likely to cause a cascade effect if drastic action not headed: motherjones.com/environment/20…
@MotherJones @billmckibben @350 3/ Another great Julia Whitty piece, this one (2006) on all the harm humans are causing to the oceans/food supply/carbon cycle: motherjones.com/politics/2006/…
@MotherJones @billmckibben @350 4/ Here's @kate_sheppard, warning that were were going to see more and more flooding and we need to radically overhaul planning and insurance as a result: motherjones.com/environment/20…
@MotherJones @billmckibben @350 @kate_sheppard 5/ Economists and policy makers still tout "growth" as the solution. What if it's the problem? Here's @pomeranian99 (in 2010) motherjones.com/politics/2010/…
@MotherJones @billmckibben @350 @kate_sheppard @pomeranian99 6/ Here's @tomphilpott on how some simple changes to farming could make a huge impact on carbon emissions and runoff: motherjones.com/environment/20…
@MotherJones @billmckibben @350 @kate_sheppard @pomeranian99 @tomphilpott 7/ Julia Whitty also wrote a gorgeous piece about the mass extinction humans have kicked off and may succumb to. (2007) motherjones.com/environment/20…
