The Time For More Civilized Talk, Conferences, Petitions And So On Is Over. WE MUST TAKE ACTION NOW. WE MUST PROTEST BY THE BILLIONS ALL OVER THE WORLD To Shake Up The Established Way Of Doing Business. NON-VIOLENT CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE OFTEN DOES MORE Than More Civilized Talk, particularly with people who don’t want to change. . ... ... “We have collectively written tens of thousands of peer-reviewed papers, and shared our findings with policymakers and the public... But while we’re now well informed, we haven’t actually changed course. It was this realisation that incited us both to embrace activism, and to take to the streets and engage in non-violent civil disobedience as members of Extinction Rebellion. The refusal to obey certain laws has a long and glorious history: from the suffragettes to Rosa Parks and Gandhi, many of the 20th century’s greatest heroes engaged in non-violent civil disobedience to win their rights.” . https://amp.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/sep/06/scientists-climate-crisis-activism-extinction-rebellion #FridaysForFuture #schoolstrike4climate #climatestrike #resist #greennewdeal #climatechange #extinctionrebellion #climatecrisis #climateactionnow #climateemergency #wedonthavetime #gretathunberg #climatebreakdown #unitedforclimate #fashion #teenvogue #climatebreakdown #actnow #thisiszerohour #quotestoliveby #wisdom #girlsrule #thefutureisfemale #joebiden2020 #elizabethwarren2020 #berniesanders2020 #stem #climatescience

🌿 Australia cuts 80% of plastic bag use in 3 short months! 🌿 ___________________________ Since Australia’s two largest supermarkets stopped the supply of free single-use plastic bags, an estimated 1.5 billion shopping bags have been saved from use! ___________________________ It's a fantastic win for the environment and really shows the power of small changes. Since then, many other retailers have stopped supplying single-use plastic bags, with some reporting a drop in plastic bag use of up to 90%! We're thrilled at the result and shows that when we work together, we CAN drive change! . But this is only a start. The next thing we have to do is stop single use plastics for packaging products. We have to stop abusing our planet with plastic and greenhouse gas pollution. Try to avoid any product that is packaged in plastic. And what else can you do? Here are a few things : Reduce your own carbon footprint by wasting less, eating less red meat and switching to renewable energy where possible. Talk to your friends, collegues and family about climate change. Tag someone and use climate change messages in your feed. Like and comment on climate change messages to increase their reach. Join a local group like #schoolstrike #extinctionrebellion #stopadani #fridaysforfuture #parentsforfuture And most importantly, #votefortheclimate ! Do you care about the planet? 🌏 Tag someone who should see this! 🔊 Help us grow the community by following 👉 #icaremovement and 👉 @icaremvt. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- 🌏 The biggest threat to the planet is the fact that most people (voters) don't realise yet how urgent the climate emergency has become. We have started a Patreon page to raise funds to help us to reach as many of these people as possible.

Reading recommendation published today! On Fire: The (Burning) Case for a Green New Deal. . . Naomi Klein’s latest book is a collection of her essays explaining how the paradigm of ceaseless economic growth has led to the climate crisis and how we can create a more just and sustainable world if we gather enough collective courage and act. . “Only mass social movements can save us now. Because we know where the current system, left unchecked, is headed. We also know, I would add, how that system will deal with the reality of serial climate-related disasters: with profiteering, and escalating barbarism to segregate the losers from the winners. To arrive at that dystopia, all we need to do is keep barreling down the road we are on. The only remaining variable is whether some countervailing power will emerge to block the road, and simultaneously clear some alternate pathways to destinations that are safer. If that happens, well, it changes everything.” -Naomi Klein, excerpt from her last book This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs The Climate. . . . #climatecrisis #sustainabletransformation #greennewdeal #gnd #naomiklein #allefürsklima #fridaysforfuture #climateaction #climatechange #ClimateStrike #accionclimatica #collectiveaction #climatejustice #strikeforclimate #sustainability

The NYC school district's decision lends even greater legitimacy to the youth climate action movement currently sweeping the globe once more. September 20th's strike is intended to demonstrate strong feelings among young people around the world ahead of the U.N. Climate Action Summit. Greta Thunberg, the young activist credited with launching this movement, will march with student protesters and will attend the summit, both of which will take place in New York. Thanks to the pass to skip school in NYC, U.N. delegates will have front row seats to a demonstration that accurately represents the demand among young people for climate action. #environment #environmentalism #ecocentric #plasticfree #nomoreplasticpollution #nomoreplastic #ocean #activism #climateaction #plasticsucks #nature #savetheearth #earth #sustainable #eco #sustainability #ecofriendly #environmentallyfriendly #news #education #greennewdeal #trump #oildrilling #offshoredrilling #arctic #climatechange

Stand United in Science! Listen to the Scientists! Reposted from @unenvironment - “What means the most to me personally is when just one person tells me sincerely that they had never cared about climate change before, or even thought that it was real: but now, because of something they heard me say, they’ve changed their mind. That’s what makes it all worthwhile.” Canadian climate scientist Katharine Hayhoe has been chosen as a Champion of the Earth for her stalwart commitment to quantifying the effects of #climatechange & her tireless efforts to transform attitudes. #EarthChamps #ClimateAction #ActNow - #fridaysforfuture #fffindia #greenland #meltdown #gretathunberg #youthstrike4climate #youthgoals #delhi #india #extinctionrebellion #globalwarming #greennewdeal #election2019 #climatestrike #climateaction #climatechange #makeearthgreatagain #noplanetb #climatejusticenow #schoolstrike #glacial #fridays4future #youthclimatestrike #elections2019 # #whateverittakes

Day 5 at the White House. Please feel free to save and share this foto. People seemed to like this one as much as the impeach. Lots of people took pictures of it/with it. I figure it cuts out the middle woman (Pelosi) if we just demand their resignations instead of having to deal with impeachment. I don’t know about y’all but I am unwilling to tolerate politicians who pretend the climate crisis is a hoax or cage immigrant families, torture refugees and ban asylum. We are seeing the wild fires we are seeing the ice melting we are seeing the super storms we are seeing the reefs bleaching. We need immediate climate action. We need a #GreenNewDeal Those who are fleeing climate chaos, or violence/persecution shall be welcomed with open arms to my United States. #TrumpResign #PenceResign #KavanaughResign #McConnellResign #CloseTheCamps #NoBanNoWall

Yoga in action. Most of my posts are related to me doing some crazy pose with my body, but the reality is that yoga is much more than breathing and making shapes. I watched a @ted talk by @rachel.cargle and though there was so much that resonated with me I’m gonna leave you all with this small piece. Being an ally to any marginalized group is more than just putting on a name tag, but requires that we dig deeper and do the work. The first step is to gaining knowledge of the experiences of those who are suffering. It’s not enough just to turn on the TV but really about digging deep to learn that our experience in this world may be quite different from another. It’s a hard pill to swallow. The next step is to have empathy for those who are suffering. It’s easy to say “well if I were them, I would do this, “ or “If they worked hard they could do this.” The reality is that we’re not all born into the same circumstances. The last one is about action. As Angela Davis has said, “ In a racist society it is not enough to be non-racist, we must be anti-racist.” We are called to stand up against Injustice in our world!

Reposting @freedom_faction 🤪😳 Thoughts? #AlexandriaOcasioCortez levels a veiled threat against #Miami , #Florida if leaders don’t implement her #GreenNewDeal ; namely, that #globalwarming will sink the city into oblivion.

Such is the case with global warming hysterics who have recently begun to make headway among concerned citizens. When Rep.

That is, if we don’t do something in 12 years, warming will be out of control and we’ll be unable to avert catastrophe.

Recently, activists from Sunrise Movement PDX challenged me to sign the #NoFossilFuelMoney pledge to send a signal to others and to help provide leadership and incentive to reinforce the work they are doing. A little background...I have a personal rule that I don’t sign pledges - instead, I let my actions speak for themselves. However, I thought a lot about their request and realized that they were right. You can have rigid practices that make sense for the operation and the chaos of congressional offices, but you have to be prepared to step up when the circumstances warrant. These circumstances warrant breaking my policy and joining these young and passionate activists. Thank you, @sunrisepdx Last night, I signed the No Fossil Fuel Money Pledge. When it comes to protecting the planet and our future for our children and grandchildren, there are no small actions.

Update Seattle Green New Deal phase ll victory! Today, the Seattle city council voted unanimously to approve our Seattle GND ordinance to establish a GND oversite board. This board will oversee the city and ensure that it meets its goal of being fossil fuel free by 2030 and on 100% renewable energy. The board will be comprised of front line communities facing the climate crisis, labor, tribal reps, and youth. The committee will not only oversee that the city meet the green house gas free by 2030 goal, but will both review and propose future legislation. Our SeattleGND phase lll, to end natural (fracked) gas will be brought back tp council in Nov. Wopila tanka to our awesome advisory committee and CM O'Brien and his staff #SeattleGND #greennewdeal

Started the project in Washington D.C. to gauge the national picture of environmental policy before looking at different city-level happenings. Today brought super meetings with the legislative teams of Congressman Carbajal @repcarbajal and Congresswoman Dingell @repdingell on their proactive approaches to decarbonisation & work with district communities. THEN had a chat with the head of policy at @climatereality (founded by my orig hero @algore ) about their mass scale outreach work, with an increasing focus on climate justice. Living in a dream world!! Bonus material: yesterday went from the height of hipsterism (see last post) to folk dancing with retired Americans in an art deco ballroom in sunny DC suburbia??? Strangely proved a great networking opportunity- met fab feminist environmental scientist (/talented fiddle player) and ex EPA officer both offering exciting connections. Brought about by current hosts Bob & Tali who I could write a whole essay about despite knowing for approx 24 hrs (keywords- energetic, kind vegan whacky legalaidvolunteer) #washingtondc #dc #capitol #capitolhill #usa #sustainability #decarbonisation #carbonneutral #netzero #greennewdeal #greencities #smartcities #fdr #roosevelt #nottingham #nottinghamshire @nottsroosevelt

Trees combat global warming by absorbing carbon dioxide and producing oxygen, contribute to soil health, retain water, and cool overheated urban areas. One large tree can supply a day's supply of oxygen for four people. A healthy tree can store 13 pounds of carbon each year ----for an acre of trees that equals to 2.6 tons of carbon dioxide. For every 10,000 miles you drive, it takes 7 trees to remove the amount of carbon dioxide produce. Among highly populous countries, India (population, 1.267 billion) has a tree population of only 35 billion, leading to just 28 trees per person. Compared to Brazil which has 301 billion trees (1,494 per person), Canada 318 billion (8,953 per person), and China 139 billion (102 trees per person). The Forest Survey of India (FSI) puts Delhi’s per capita tree availability at 0.3, or less than one tree per person. Trees are giving us a lot but what we are giving them in back? NOTHING. We are even not able to give them anything we are only capable to take from them. What the only thing they want from us is friendly and hospitable environment where they can flourish and we are destroying them at a large scale. THIS PLANET DON'T NEED HUMAN BEINGS.

We generally use lot of stationery items in our daily life. But would you like to know how it’s journey ends? After a research on this, I was disappointed in myself; how less thoughtful I was when I bought hundreds of disposable pens and other stationary only to dump them like my actions won’t have any consequences. Actions do have consequences. I made a change and I would like to share an idea. IDEA: Pruchase 3-4 pens with durable penbody.A good refillable pen can last a lifetime, metallic refills can be recycled . Plantable and cardboard pens are also available. Once a pen has finished it doesn’t simply disappear into the air . Usually we don't care and throw it away. These disposable pens ultimately wind up in landfills and in waterways. 50,000 years , that's how long a plastic pen is estimated to be in landfill. Plastic never decomposes. It will eventually break down into tiny fragments of plastic. The number of disposable pens used each year in the USA is a staggering 106 billion. 100 billion pens laid end to end would circle the earth 348 times. Just think about the number of disposable pens used by entire world. SMALL THINGHS DO HAVE BIGGER CONSEQUENCES. BIG REASON TO THINK. *AVOID SINGLE USE PLASTIC* #environmental #environment #ecofriendly #recycle #green #sustainability #environmentallyfriendly #zerowaste #greens #resist #revolution #greatergood #greaterevil #greenparty #progressive #progressives #votegreen #imwithjill #greenenter #ajamubaraka #demexit #greennewdeal #jillstein #makeindiagreen #wearegreen #assange #plasticfree #bhfyp #earthisfirsthome
