Climate experts have now confirmed that 2018 was Australia’s third-warmest year on record, with every state and territory recording above average temperatures. “When we look across all of Australia in 2018, we can see that every single state and territory had above average day and night-time temperatures,” the Bureau’s senior climatologist said in a statement on Thursday. BOM also said rainfall totals in Australia in 2018 were the lowest since 2005. Globally, 2018 was the fourth-warmest year on record, according to the European Union’s Copernicus Climate Change Service. The last 4 years have seen the highest average temperatures globally since records began in the 1800's. #ZeroHourAustralia #ThisIsZeroHour #Australia #ClimateChange #ClimateAction

Package waste is a huge issue, which is why I typically avoid too much of these types of boxed packages. Can we find an alternative inner packaging or avoid it all together? #ThisIsZeroHour I can reuse or compost the box if necessary and might look into a cleaver reuse of the plastic, as there is zero recycling options locally. Doubtful any of the local recycling centers would even take this.

NO JOBS ON A DEAD PLANET ⠀⠀⠀⠀ Make no mistake: climate catastrophes and extreme weather conditions, including cyclones, floods, drought, fires, melting glaciers, season changes, threats to agriculture and more, are increasing and impacting working people everywhere, says the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). ⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📌In the United States, Hurricane Sandy left 150 000 workers displaced and employment was overall reduced by 11 000 workers in New Jersey alone in 2012. ⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📌In Bangladesh, Cyclone Sidr disrupted several thousand small businesses and adversely affected 567 000 jobs in 2007. ⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📌Typhoon Haiyan that hit the Philippines in November 2013 affected around 800 000 workers, with their source of livelihood damaged or displaced overnight. ⠀⠀⠀⠀ Over the next 10-15 years, we will face ever more serious impacts across the board, which will destroy whole communities and their jobs, if not their lives. That’s what catastrophic climate change means, and unless we prevent it, then decent work, social protection and rights for all will remain an illusion, particularly for the most vulnerable. ⠀⠀⠀⠀ A structural shift to a low-carbon economy will entail gains in jobs. We will certainly see jobs created in renewable energy, energy efficiency, public transport and organic agriculture among others, and they may even outnumber those which might be lost in sectors that are not compatible with fighting climate change. Because there will of course also be job losses. And if there is something we can learn from past economic transitions since the Industrial Revolution, it is that they have been far from fair in terms of social justice. Some might think: then there is no need to do things differently and all should just stay the same. This is a false and dangerous assumption. ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ➡️A just energy transition will be needed. Workers must be fully involved in shaping that “just transition”, in which their rights and prosperity are paramount and where they are able to build and decide their own future. Workers need strong policies on climate. Low climate ambitions would be a social progress killer.

In 2018 I gave up so much plastic waste, including through grating block cheese at home and freezing it until needed. In 2019, that will carry over to sliced cheese. I believe waiting on government to regulate is waiting too long. #ThisIsZeroHour

Coral reefs are the biodiversity hotspots of the ocean. They account for less than 1% of the total area of the oceans yet 25% of all marine species has some part of their life cycle in coral reefs. With 1.5 degrees C of warming, 70-90% of all coral reefs will die. With 2 degree C of warming, 99% of all coral reefs die. The current Paris Climate Accord has us on a warming target of 3.5 degree C. 🌎✊❤️ * * * @climatebriefings

My brain 🧠 is still stuffed and spinning from last weeks @thisiszerohour team directors training. What you see on TV, in the news and on social media is not what community organizing and running an organization is really like. #Activism isn’t flashy - it’s spending 8 hours in a tiny cramped room with large note pads and questioning everything you thought you knew while looking your own mistakes right in the eye. It’s labor and long grueling conversations that feel like they’re going nowhere and building power with the people you love — it’s the work that makes the world go round and no matter how much I complain or how tired I get, I fucking love it 💪🏼😭😤. #ThisIsZeroHour #YouthtoPower

For those vested in beauty, there’s a sunset video (the sound is the 6 lane highway adjacent). Ice is the poor man’s boat and winter’s the only season I have access to the middle of our urban lakes (for those who care, I have some stuff on my site about how Minneapolis’ logo is problematic/unrepresentative). _____________ I studied geography in college, an accidental major, love at first class (biogeography). It was learning the language of processes and patterns I knew intimately, the workings of a fascinating world. Part of that naming of what I already loved happened in learning about the landscape formation, the flow of water and the movement of tectonic plates. I knew it from Minneapolis’ freeze-thaw, from watching the same processes that play out across a continent in their microcosm of the hill down to the sewer each spring. How could this state not produce a million geographers (and seismologists and hydrologists and geologists)? Beyond the terror I feel at our climate breakdown, there are other levels of emotional response. Part of geography’s draw was understanding global warming, and I still feel a strong intellectual fascination in what I study. There’s something particularly poignant about cataloging our own daily push towards our collective demise. It also makes for a special kind of fear, to watch one’s literal nightmares, the most dire predictions of studies one read a dozen plus years ago, come to pass. Cause and effect. I hear people talking about the jarring feeling of walking across the lake in a sweater in January, shirtless hockey players practicing nearby. I don’t know how to process it. I remember birch trees beginning to bud one January in the early 2000s and the terror that welled up in me, exacerbated each time the meteorologists called it “nice.” This isn’t “nice,” what we face, made tangibly worse by our destructive daily choices (flight, meat/dairy, cars/low density sprawl, buying new stuff). This is nightmarish, the breakdown of everything we know. We cannot keep living how we are now; we will change, either because we choose to stop hurting one another or because we hold the status quo close like the weapon it is.

Sea level rose 3.4mm a year since 1990. Since 2010, this has increased to 4.6mm per year. Most of this increase is due to the collapse of the West Antarctica ice sheet and the increase melt of the Greenland ice sheet. This is expected to increase to over 10mm per year in the next decade and further increase thereafter. But a border wall is the most pressing issue today... 😑🌎✊❤️ * * * @climatebriefings

The burning of fossil fuels and the resulting buildup of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere have created huge impacts on our warming world. Ice is changing EVERYWHERE on Earth. It is important to remember that everything is connected. As temperatures continue to rise and ice continues to melt, more water flows in to the sea, resulting in the oceans water warming and expanding its volume. You can help reduce your carbon footprint by planting a garden; using less plastic; carpooling/walking/biking. #beetheirvoice #climatereality #environment #nomoreplastic #protectwhatyoulove #thisiszerohour #climatechange #nextgeneration #thinkofthefuture #theresnoplanetb #meltingicecaps #glacier #savetheworld #playyourpart #stopfossilfuels #cleanenergy #protecttheearth #environmentalism #picoftheday #breakfreefromplastic #nationalparks #defendtheenvironment #awareness #climateawareness #youthenvironmentalist

"This is not a place for man but a place to be studied, documented, protected." - Javier Bardem ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For @bardemantarctic , visiting the Antarctic was an eye-opening experience. Exposed to icebergs the size of skyscrapers, he understood the true relationship of man to Earth. Like the penguins he encountered, man is just another creature on this planet at the mercy of Mother Nature. #EarthToday is driven by those who are willing to challenge their preconceived notions about our planet. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #santuarioantártico #protectantarctic

Along with his brother @carlosbardemoficial and @greenpeace , @bardemantarctic is on a mission to preserve the Antarctic. Industrial fishing increasingly deprives the region's natives of their feed, and the warming of the atmosphere further endangers the sustenance of the area. @bardemantarctic recognises the scale of the issue and encourages us to join forces to establish the Antarctic Ocean Sanctuary: the largest protected area on Earth. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #santuarioantártico #protectantarctic

(3/3) Regram from @iris.fen Extract from “Meet the teenagers organizing a climate change movement”, A. Yoon-Hendricks for @nytimes ‘We are on the verge of something amazing’, Jamie Margolin, 16 “I’ve always planned my future in ifs,” Ms. Margolin said. If climate change hasn’t destroyed this, if the environment hasn’t become that. So for the last few years, Ms. Margolin has worked to raise awareness about climate justice issues. A passionate writer, she went through an “op-ed phase,” submitting essays to publications, like one titled “An Open Letter to Climate Change Deniers” published in the monthly magazine Teen Ink. Still, Ms. Margolin thought that she and other young people could — and should — be doing more. “I had had this idea building up since January, since the Women’s March” last year, Ms. Margolin said. “The kind of idea that was nagging me and you try to ignore, but it’s an idea poking you.” At a Princeton University summer program last year, she met other teenagers interested in taking action on climate change and created Zero Hour. They began to plan a huge protest in the nation’s capital. On social media, Ms. Margolin espoused factoids and reached out to other young activists. A professed climate justice advocate, Ms. Margolin has kept the movement inclusive, putting the stories and concerns of those most directly affected by environmental issues at the heart of Zero Hour’s mission. Youths from in and around the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation spoke on Saturday, and others repeatedly called attention to those killed during Hurricane Maria and threatened by rising sea levels in the Marshall Islands. Since starting Zero Hour, Ms. Margolin said she had been overwhelmed by the response from people of all ages. Dozens of environmental advocacy groups and nonprofits have approached the coalition, looking to donate to or sponsor it. “We flipped the scenario as the underdog. We’ve proven ourselves,” she said. “We are on the verge of something amazing. We’re going to change history.” Spread the awareness tagging someone in the comments.👇🏻 @thisiszerohour @jamie_s_margolin #thisiszerohour #climatechange #youthclimatemarch #climatejustice #girlpower

(1/3) Regram from @iris.fen Extract from “Meet the teenagers organizing a climate change movement”, A. Yoon-Hendricks for @nytimes ‘Repping the younger generation’, Iris Fen Gillingham, 18 When three floods in the mid-to late 2000s swept through the vegetable farm Iris Fen Gillingham’s family owned in the Catskill Mountains, the topsoil was washed away and their equipment was submerged, eliminating their main source of income. The floods devastated Ms. Gillingham’s family, which has always lived “very consciously with the land and with nature,” she said. Even her name, Iris Fen, like the flower and marshy wetland behind her house, alludes to that attachment. “I have a pair of mittens that are made out of one of our Icelandic sheep, Rosalie,” Ms. Gillingham said. “My brother named her, I remember her being born and I’ve seen her grow up and my mom sheering her and spinning the wool.” So when landsmen came to explore the possibility of hydraulic fracturing — a technique of oil and gas extraction also known as fracking — in their neighborhood when she was about 10, Ms. Gillingham joined her father, an environmental activist, in speaking out at local meetings, often as the youngest in the room. “It was always myself repping the younger generation,” Ms. Gillingham said. “Part of that was my brother and I saying, ‘We don’t want to play on contaminated soil,’” (The Environmental Protection Agency has concluded that fracking can contaminate drinking water in some circumstances.) But part of it was also knowing firsthand how essential a sustainable lifestyle — growing food at home, conscious spending, building greener homes — will be for her generation. “We’re setting aside our differences and we are building a family and a community using our skills and our creativity,” Ms. Gillingham said of the movement. “We’re having fun, we’re laughing with each other, but we’re also talking about some pretty serious issues and injustices happening in this country.” 📸: Erin Schaff Spread the awareness tagging someone in the comments.👇🏻 @thisiszerohour #thisiszerohour #climatechange #youthclimatemarch #climatejustice #youthvoice #globalwarming #fridaysforfuture #girlpower #repost

16 places most affected by Climate Change 9) Philippines The Philippines experienced natural disasters enough to place it among the countries that are most vulnerable to the negative effects of climate change. Latest empirical studies indicated changes in the climate of the country, in terms of temperature increases and occurrences of extreme rainfall and heat. The total cost of extreme events related to climate change is high, around 2% of the country’s GDP. Likewise, climate change is associated with the country’s difficulty in achieving MDGs ( Millennium Development Goals). #climatechange #climateaction #thisiszerohour #reportonclimate #climatereality #ocean #philippines

A story of a lake and the people on it, starring the light. It’s good weather for having a cold; outside, bundled up, there is no reason to get close enough to strangers to cough all over them. They whizz by on skates and bikes and we slip and slide from shore to shore. I have a hard time imagining what it would take to hate winter enough to give up this light, even without snow and ice and every other frozen beauty. All I can think is that perhaps the windshield blocks the senses and daylight savings traps too many people away from chasing this light. Winter is chasing beauty, because winter is danger if we stand still. Indecision has a tangible form and stasis shows its real costs. So I look to the sky and shimmy to this patch of ice to see what refractions there are to see, this way in the sunset glow, that way in last light. We need to move, regardless, and movement always shapes our context; we can detour, veer off, backtrack. But we must move with determination. I’m trying to learn from the ice this year, do a better job of constant motion and spend less time in overthinking that isn’t informed by a continuous action. We’ve got another 12 months to dive into a different world, 12 months to fully embrace our physical reality and reshape our lives towards alignment with our shared survival, with the IPCC report, with the beauty of winter’s like these. Let us move decisively, friends, as if the sting of the status quo were as tangible as the bite of winter nipping at our exposed edges, corralling us into necessary, welcome movement and warmth. [For 0-5°F, I’m wearing my mended patchwork-in-progress down coat out of fabric recycling over two shirts and a wool sweater, various secondhand scarves, a hat, mittens, and three wool overskirts (two visible) over wool longjohns and pants.

Happy New Year Everyone! This past year has been nothing short of amazing for Zero Hour. As we look forward to 2019 we want to acknowledge all the growth 2018 has allowed for. We displayed beautiful artwork from all around the world, we spoke to senators about the urgency of climate change, and we marched on the national mall in order to change the national conversation. Zero Hour was featured on the New York Times and many other publications. Our members were able to speak at panels and summits all across the country. But behind all of this there was shared laughter, tears, and struggle. However, we have continued to persevere and as a result we are stronger together. Zero Hour is excited and ready to continue working on projects that will reflect our platform. So we will be taking this unity with us into 2019 and we hope you will continue to support us! #thisiszerohour
