Greta Thunberg Shreds Neoliberal politicians

Jill Stein (via Facebook):

Greta Thunberg shreds neoliberal politicians: “We’re in the beginning of a mass extinction & all you can talk about is money & fairytales of eternal economic growth. How dare you!”

Endless growth is the ideology of cancer. To survive, we need a new system that puts people, planet & peace over profit.

 

Our opportunity to halt global warming was 30+ years ago

Our opportunity to halt global warming was 30+ years ago when Democrats fell all over themselves to tell you how “unrealistic” it was.

How’s that claim looking, now?

Planning on moving to a different planet?

New study: if we stop emissions immediately, Arctic still warms 5C/9F by century’s end. We’re not stopping global warming any more; we’re fighting like hell for a level that civilizations might survive. #ClimateStrike

You Probably Read in High School

…you probably read in your high-school textbooks that these extinctions were the result of asteroids. In fact, all but the one that killed the dinosaurs were caused by climate change produced by greenhouse gas. The most notorious was 252 million years ago; it began when carbon warmed the planet by five degrees, accelerated when that warming triggered the release of methane in the Arctic, and ended with 97 percent of all life on Earth dead. We are currently adding carbon to the atmosphere at a considerably faster rate; by most estimates, at least ten times faster.
