You shouldn’t take the election too badly. A large section of the planet’s population values well-paying jobs and high incomes more than anything else. Self-interest drives a large percentage of the world. For many people, it’s a big mindset change to value the earth’s ecosystem more than material surplus and wealth. It’s antithetical to capitalism, the driving economic system around most of the world. Until today’s young people reach voting age, and the climate becomes so horrific that it shocks people who only care about maximizing their personal wealth to care about the planet, we need to find ways to convince the world that converting to a clean-energy economy will actually boost their incomes and prosperity. We need to HARNESS THEIR GREED to encourage them to embrace climate change mitigation. For example, America’s Midwest largely isn’t concerned with climate change, thanks to Fox News. Moreover, as a general rule, farmers and manufacturing people only care about things that will boost their incomes in the next two or three years. However, one thing people in manufacturing want more than anything is a lot more well-paying blue-collar jobs. As a result, some climate activists have been trying to help people in the Midwest understand that converting America’s electric grid to renewables and nuclear energy, and replacing America’s 276 million fossil-fuel vehicles and hundreds of millions of furnaces, ovens, stoves and so on with clean-energy equivalents would boost the Midwest’s economy for decades. Perhaps a similar strategy would work with Australia, particularly with the tourist industry. Saving the Great Barrier reef and turning Australia into a model of a clean-energy economy would bring world attention, social status and economic opportunities to Australia. #FridaysForFuture #SchoolsStrike4Climate #ClimateStrike #australia #resist #berniesanders #greennewdeal #climatechange #renewableenergy #progressives #parisagreement #savetheplanet #stopclimatechange #extinctionrebellion #climateaction #thisiszerohour #cleanenergy #earthdayeveryday #climatechangeisreal #climatecrisis #climateactionnow #climateemergency #humanchange

Thoughts? Ashes to ashes, guts to dirt. Gov. Jay Inslee signed legislation Tuesday making #Washington the first state to approve composting as an alternative to burying or cremating human remains. It allows licensed facilities to offer "natural organic reduction," which turns a body, mixed with substances such as wood chips and straw, into about two wheelbarrows' worth of soil in a span of several weeks. Loved ones are allowed to keep the soil to spread, just as they might spread the ashes of someone who has been cremated - or even use it to plant vegetables or a tree. "It gives meaning and use to what happens to our bodies after death," said Nora Menkin, executive director of the #Seattle -based #PeoplesMemorialAssociation , which helps people plan for funerals. Supporters say the method is an environmentally friendly alternative to cremation, which releases carbon dioxide and particulates into the air, and conventional burial, in which people are drained of their blood, pumped full of formaldehyde and other chemicals that can pollute groundwater, and placed in a nearly indestructible coffin, taking up land. "That's a serious weight on the earth and the environment as your final farewell," said Sen. Jamie Pedersen, the Seattle Democrat who sponsored the measure. He said the legislation was inspired by his neighbor: Katrina Spade, who was an architecture graduate student at the #UniversityofMassachusetts , #Amherst , when she began researching the funeral industry. She came up with the idea for human composting, modeling it on a practice farmers have long used to dispose of livestock. She tweaked the process and found that wood chips, alfalfa and straw created a mixture of nitrogen and carbon that accelerates natural decomposition when a body is placed in a temperature- and moisture-controlled vessel and rotated. A pilot project at #WashingtonStateUniversity tested the idea last year on six bodies, all donors who Spade said wanted to be part of the study. 🖐🏾More in comments👇🏾 #SoylentGreen #RecyclingHumanity #ScientificDictatorship #GreenNewDeal #Agenda21 #Agenda2030 @freedom_faction

Atmospheric CO2 levels have topped 415 ppm for the first time in over 2 million years. Such a high amount of carbon is characteristic of a pre-extinction period, but it won’t be a death sentence for today’s ecosystems if action is taken now and on an international scale to curb and capture emissions.

These beautiful people blow my mind!!! I am SO proud of every one of these individuals for taking part in this movement. They help to keep me motivated every day. On May 24 there will be hundreds of SCHOOL WALKOUTS AROUND THE WORLD!! One million plant and animal species are on the verge of extinction, an event that would result in alarming effects on human survival. Maybe this is that key moment in which we should take a non-partisan stance and just do what makes sense by our health? @gretathunberg thanks again for all of your efforts!!

Last night the state of Kentucky held it's gubernatorial race primaries. On the Democratic side, Attorney General Andy Beshear (left) won the nomination by plurality taking home nearly 38% of the vote. On the Republican side, incumbent Matt Bevin limped by carrying just 52% of the vote (that's not a very good sign for incumbents). Bevin is the most unpopular governor in the nation according to the Morning Consult with a 33% approval rating compared to a 52% disapproval rating. Under his leadership he has picked fights with teacher unions, has cut Medicaid and has created a pension crisis. Safe to say, this is a really good chance at a pick up for Dems. However, I will say that Beshear isn't exactly the ideal candidate to run against Bevin. He's a neoliberal however he is still better than Bevin by a long shot. If I was giving advice to either candidate, I'd first tell Bevin to cling to President Trump as much as possible. President Trump has a 56% approval rating compared to a 40% disapproval rating in the state. His key to victory is getting President Trump to rally as much support for him as humanly possible (that's still gonna be a tough task for him). As for Beshear, I'd tell him to hammer away on the pension crisis, the bickering with the teachers unions and the cuts to Medicaid. His key to victory is to just bring up everything that Bevin has done wrong that has made him extremely unpopular at this point. It's gonna be a tight election with polling indicating that Beshear is ahead of Bevin. However, as of today, May 22nd, 2019 I am giving the slight edge to Bevin

#Repost This study done by YPCCC shows that Americans are interested in renewable resources! • @climate.change.communication Americans across the political spectrum think it's important to transition to clean, renewable energy. 80% of Democrats, 73% of Independents, and 58% of Republicans believe that it's important to transition so we have a source of energy that never runs out.

A federal judge was told that the 1.57 billion dollars allotted to Trump for the construction of the border wall has yielded just under 2 miles of fencing. To put that in perspective, thats around 1/1000th of the border being covered. According to Trump, “tremendous work is being done.” If you weren’t questioning this wall at first, you absolutely have to be now. (Source: Bloomberg)
