Climate’s on back burner, but advocates see COVID-19 parallels @elvina_nawaguna
"One of the media’s most important tasks today is to cover the climate crisis with integrity and depth. That won’t happen as long as journalists are in BP’s pockets."
Also need to think about what stimulates in a post #COVID19 world. What helps us transition to that world? What will we need most in the aftermath? How will we hedge against pandemic, climate change, other fat tail risks. The only contant is change - we are adaptable. Tap that.
I say to those who are delaying action on climate change: Look at the blood-red sky and unbreathable air in Australia because of raging forest fires. Our futures are all connected. That is why we must bring the world together and enact a Green New Deal.
Greta Thunberg to world leaders at the U.N. climate summit: “You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words”
Donald Trump believes climate change is a hoax. Donald Trump is an idiot.
"You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words," climate activist Greta Thunberg tells the UN. "We are in the beginning of a mass extinction and all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth. How dare you."
Just a thought: Which should be considered more “marginal” - believing in Santa at age 7 or not believing in climate change at age 72?
Italy has banned weddings and funerals for 16 million people. Japan has closed schools for a month. France and Iraq have banned public gatherings. The U.N. has canceled all physical meetings to address climate change. Americans are uncertain what to do about Coachella.
