Thread. 2020: The Brave New World of (Faux) #Activism

(Financed by the profit generated by the most egregious corporations on the planet that are systematically destroying the very ecosystems supporting all life. $ funneled through tax-exempt foundations into NGOs)
It is quite incredible. Look at the messaging from the institutions set up to monetize nature (#NewDealForNature). Natural Capital Coalition, UNEP, etc. etc.

They are now drenched in emotive images of beautiful animals & our natural world.
Now, in comparison, look at the messaging from the dominant "environmental" NGOs such as Greenpeace, 350, Avaaz, etc. etc.

They are now drenched in images of tech & so-called renewable energies deemed "good" by populace. The natural world has been effectively buried by tech.
A really good example is the Twitter account of Mike Hudema, climate campaigner with #Greenpeace Canada who may as well be tweeting for We Mean Business.

In this "tweet" Hudema gives legitimacy to the term "carbon neutral" - a term that has nothing to do w/ stopping emissions
In this tweet (a #WEF promo), installing solar panels at the rate of "a football pitch every hour of every day" is presented as an amazing & wonderful thing. It is not amazing for the life that existed in these areas prior to the industrial blanketing of solar panels.
Years ago, 350, Klein et al, sold "renewable energies" in package of energy independence, co-operatives, local/small scale, etc. As you can see, this was never the true intention of those that finance/manage the #NPIC.

If I'm w/ We Mean Business, guys like Mike, are gold.
This is not activism, this is lobbying for industry. Industrial energy destroys nature & accelerates climate. Just ask the desert tortoises, cacti & other life being displaced by "clean energy".

#Global100RE is also used by We Mean Business, The Nature Conservancy, etc.
That global institutions & finance NGOS that represent capital & protect the very economic system destroying life, are now the "face" of the natural world, with NGOs such as Greenpeace, now the face of "green" tech, - this is a complete flip, as well as an effective partnership.
I wrote about this process in 2016:

"Environmentalism is dead. Today we bear witness to 21st century anthropocentrism. The goal is no longer to protect nature and all living things.

Since that time, the social engineering has accelerated.…
Need to finish this thought.

If I'm w/ We Mean Business, Davos crowd, etc. "activists" like Mike (#Greenpeace) are my people.

If I'm an animal, insect, plant, living in/dependent upon my surroundings in the natural world, "activists" like Mike (#Greenpeace) are the enemy.
And as a mammal, living in/dependent upon my surroundings in the natural world, "activists" like Mike (#Greenpeace) are also my enemy.
