Good piece (from a former @Middlebury  student, I'm happy to say) on why eating less meat would make a significant climate difference (and also reduce deforestation pressure in the Amazon!)

Yo, @ExtinctionR  has done an awfully good job of heightening climate awareness. If you have a few quid/yuan/dollars/rupees toss them in the hat they're passing

Now that we know that presidents can just order companies to do things, the possibilities for swift climate action post 2020 seem brighter...

You know who's a big Bolsonaro fan? Steve Bannon. There are days when it feels like the dementors are winning

NBC's tech correspondent, @byjacobward , speaks with real passion and power about what's going on in Brazil. It's good to see mainstream media stepping up to the plate on this one

I've never CAPSLOCKED before, but IRELAND JUST VOTED TO BECOME THE FIRST NATION ON EARTH TO FULLY DIVEST FROM FOSSIL FUELS. It's a fine day, begorra!

Good golly! A few minutes ago a Boston judge acquitted 13 pipeline protesters on the grounds that the climate crisis made it necessary for them to commit civil disobedience. This may be a first in America. Details to follow, and go to for some live video

After its hottest month on record, Alaska no longer has any ice within 150 miles of shore. "Alaska's waters are ice free."

As we helplessly watch Florida suffer today, remember that the the fossil fuel companies knew all about climate change in 1980s. And lied.

Huge new Finnish study finds planet could run on 100% renewable energy by 2050 and for less money than we pay now. Or, we could burn up the earth
