#2020SuperYear: "We're working to secure an ambitious #NewDealForNature and People in the year 2020."

2017: 1 #WWF retweet on Dec 18

Created/managed by Bernadette Fischler Hooper - works at WWF-UK as Head of Advocacy – Our Planet / 2020 Project.
April 2019, Friends of the Earth:

"Happy 2020. It's going to be a big year"

"Will our government and business leaders act on the triple emergency of climate, nature and poverty, or will business as usual win?...
"What would life be like in 2030 if restoring nature, stabilising our climate & making strides in human development & poverty reduction were daily priorities for all gov'ts & every business for the decade starting in 2020?"
"I'm looking forward to 2020. It’s a big year & will test whether our gov'ts & business leaders have the 20:20 vision needed to change how they operate & make future life on Earth viable"

Let's test them-because there is no path of destruction up to this point. Ignore reality
"The window is closing but isn’t locked and bolted yet. There are ways out, while we’re still in control. 2020 will test the ability of gov't's & businesses to lead & to

Asking the citizenry to "give them another chance" is grotesque - but it's also why they are funded
"while we’re still in control."

The anthropocentric/Eurocentric lie that never dies. We are certainly not in control - and we never were. This lack of understanding & respect for nature has literally cost us the Earth.
FoE lays out the emergency, then states:

"Now, millions of people are marching in climate strikes to demand that their leaders and the powerful change their direction. Expect more in 2020 because this is not going away.

It’s everyone’s business, especially business"
... "There are signs that some business leaders know that a business-as-usual approach is running out of road. Their practices are coming under greater scrutiny, not least from
public opinion & consumer expectations of brands."

#NewDealForNature #NatureForSale

"Having begun as a way to boost global business growth w/ exclusive winter business bashes in Davos, the World Economic Forum now routinely reports that the main risks facing business & society are inaction on climate change..."


"Human life is on the line, but we do have time in the decade to 2030 to fix this. People are acting & want governments & business to step up in 2020 & change their ways."

"HUMAN life is on the line..."

Man & his arrogance.
Craig Bennett is CEO of Friends of the Earth. Bennett also served as director of The Prince of Wales's Corporate Leaders Group on Climate Change (a co-founder of We Mean Business). Bennett will take the reins of of The Wildlife Trusts in April 2020.

"Let’s make 2020 the start of a decade of action to make life on earth safer & more secure for everyone, not just the wealthy & powerful. This is the time of our lives."

Leading people to believe that climate strikes organized by NGOs in servitude to capital, have taught gov'ts & corps the lesson they needed to "change their ways" is outrageous. Not only must they believe the citizenry are fools, they distract from #capitalism & root causes.

#NewDealForNature #NatureForSale
#2020SuperYear Dec 2 2019, retweeting Nature4Climate

#NewDealForNature #NatureForSale
Let's take a look at the first accounts chosen to follow by #2020SuperYear .

The #NewDealForNature campaign is heavy in its importance of #Indigenous Peoples rhetoric - count how many they follow.

#WWF, United Nations #Biodiversity & media; Grist & Huff Post
Next batch:

The B Team, We Mean Business, Christiana Figueres, Paul Polman, #WWF accounts

#NewDealForNature is the #CorporateTheftofNature

#EmergingMarkets to #SaveCapitalism
Next batch:

IEA & We Mean Business co-founders.

#NewDealForNature is supported by all those who betray nature.
Next batch.

#WWF, IPBES, UN #Biodiversity. Natural Capital Project, etc.

More "green collar executives".
Next batch. Highlights: #Monbiot, Caroline Lucas, Tony Juniper, World Bank, Gore's Climate Reality Project, #Avaaz, #WWF...

Question: Did you spot the #Indigenous Peoples they admire & tell us we must listen to?

Did you spot the independent groups from the Global South?
Next batch. Lots & lots of #WWF accounts.

The very organization responsible for displacements, torture, rapes, murders of Indigenous Peoples - are now at the helm of monetizing/privatizing nature, global in scale.

Follow @StephenCorrySvl to learn the truth about the WWF.
Next batch. More, more more WWF.

#2020SuperYear is to be the super year for the very corporations destroying the biosphere. WWF - aiding and abetting the corporate capture of nature, global in scale.
@Boycott_WWF Next batch.

One may be surprised that the baton was handed to FoE in the final remaining lap to monetize the commons.

Don't be. #FoE has held representation on the board of #Ceres as far back as 2001 (Ceres a co-founder of We Mean Business).

@Boycott_WWF So many shiny white people but where are the #Indigenous People's being utilized/marketed for the #WWF et al #NewDealForNature campaign?

The #racism that hums quietly beneath the "movement", normalizes the very things that should be glaring & obvious.
@Boycott_WWF The exploitation of #Indigenous Peoples for marketing market-based "solutions" is par for the curse. To market Indigenous Peoples & cultures - in order to literally steal what remains of the Earth from beneath their feet - is as vile as it gets. @TomBWarren @StephenCorrySvl
@Boycott_WWF @TomBWarren @StephenCorrySvl #Activism is a commodity. Built on a Western foundation of #racism, #imperialism & #colonialism, "activism" in the year 2019, is as critical to maintaining industrial capitalism, as oil itself.

Money can buy you nature.

Green is the colour of money.
