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.
There is, actually: compostable plastics from corn. https://bonniebio.us/
Our planet is on the verge of collapse. We need to quickly change the systems that allow for the exploitation of our ecosystems. Incrementalism will not fix this. We can make personal lifestyle changes, but it’s only by working together that we have the power for real change.
Nature is in more trouble now than at any other time in human history, with extinction looming over one million species of plants and animals, scientists said Monday in the UN’s first comprehensive report on biodiversity.
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 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.
When it comes to paying for things that are the morally right thing to do.
