Don't shy away from reality. Embrace it, and join others in finding alternative ways to live on Earth. The status quo will become untenable. Adapt early to improve our odds of success.
Expect 20-30 feet of sea level rise (minimum) if we follow our current path.
See the Pliocene coastline:
#Florence 11 pm Tuesday update released.
If on the coast near the cone, EVACUATE.
If in rain blast zone, evacuate or stock up (7+ days) and hunker down on higher ground.
See the 4th picture. Florence is fueled by unprecedented build up of heat along the coast. See it’s path where the heat was sucked up to power the storm.
Get real about this. Learn about it. Talk about #AbruptClimateChange.
NHC Update, 11am:
Hurricane #Florence continues on track for a history-making landfall in North Carolina -- with potential simultaneous new all-time East Coast records for wind, rainfall, and storm surge.
A word on each of those three main threats:
Worth pulling up the birdsite to stay current IMHO.
Hurricane #Florence 11pm Monday update.
This storm is fueled by an unprecedented build up of heat in the water along the coast. This has never happened before to humans.
⚠️ If near the cone on coast, GTFO!
⚠️ If in rain blast zone, hunker down on higher ground. Stock up now. Help each other.
Take this seriously. Reach out to people directly because people need advance warning.

Hot enough yet to take it seriously?
@brianpoe Note: the 2030 ice free timeline given in the article may be overly optimistic. Keep an eye on Arctic cyclone activity, El Nino, and any loss of global dimming upon economic crisis.
"The impact on the climate may mean an influx of permafrost-derived methane into the atmosphere in the mid-21st century, which is *not currently accounted for in climate projections*."
Wake up. Spread awareness. Act.
The bomb that killed 40 children in Yemen was US made. CNN has confirmed it was laser guided MK 82 bomb made by Lockheed Martin.
Wake up. Speak out.
the blessed things about being on a decentralized platform like mastodon are: there isn't one giant corporation accountable only to stockholders running the whole thing; your online presence is not beholden to the whims of moderators — if you don't like the rules, you can go to another instance and take your data with you, and if you get punted from one instance you can always try your hand at another; the network can never be taken down – as long as there's an instance up, there's a network

Climate as casualty of endless war.
Hey do you notice how there isn't a single ad or piece of sponsored content anywhere on this website? Isn't it great? It's great.
Here's the bad news: this website is NOT free. Since we're not paying a corporation with our private information or advertisers with our eyeballs, we need to pay directly the people who are running the servers and banning nazis.
Do what you can, folks.
Climate & eco community: be wary of corporate & neocon manipulations.
"And that’s really all it will take. A tipping point of un-manipulatable & awake people collaborating to create new systems that will surpass the old is all it will take to wrest power from the manipulators"
A thing I am working on building to help fix the Shitty Twitter Archive Export.
The ONLY reason I haven't deleted my account sooner is because the backups don't support twitter threads properly.
I tried making it sooner but I get so sad just thinking about it. Been trying to do it since march.
Finally got enough done that I have a fairly complete backup of my account, at least raw JSON+Images.
Anyone got any docs on practical workplace democracy? I may have a chance to bake it into a small corporation I work for
This implies your time serving the machine is its own reward
As someone who has been working since he was 13, let me just say, no it isn't
A job is just that. A mechanism of self-preservation as part of the infrastructure in the current incarnation of civilization. You are who you are. You can enjoy what you do, but your job is not "you"
I got my first post solar panel electric bill. It's for -56 dollars.
I can leave it as a credit in case we use more power in another billing cycle or if the credit is over 50 dollars I can ask for a check.
