Wow! Today's global strike is supported by scientists in both the Arctic (left: 📸L. Nixon) and the Antarctic (right: 📸W. Almeida) where the ice is melting dramatically. Let's start listen to the science and #FightClimateInjustice. In which part of the world do you strike today?

Time is running out. The Arctic is melting, and could be gone by the time I’m in my 30s, and we need our leaders to make a decision now.

I did the most northerly climate strike ever in the Arctic to convey my desperation and the urgency of the issue.

"All told, the series of advances will yield a 54 percent increase in range, a 56 percent decrease in the dollar per kilowatt-hour pack price, and a decrease in capital investment required for manufacturing."

"Three years ago, the British government introduced a ban on the sale of new cars with combustion engines from 2040. The British government now has concrete plans to bring this deadline forward by ten years to 2030."

“In the next 15 years, we will eliminate in California the sales of internal combustion engine” vehicles, Newsom said at a press conference in Sacramento.

"These gains will be worth celebrating whether they are delivered by Tesla or another company. We're now pretty close to the point where battery-electric vehicles can be cheaper than equivalent gasoline-powered cars even before you factor in lower fuel and maintenance costs. When that point is reached, we can expect public adoption of electric vehicles to accelerate."

My carbon footprint on carbonfootprint.com was 10.98 metric tons. The portion for food was 4.7 ... almost half of my emissions. From the choices to enter into the calculation, I chose 'medium meat eater' (even though I've probably cut my meat consumption in half). What made me think of this? I just saw the trailer for a documentary movie called 'Dominion' (2018).

"this report...contains a catalogue of on-farm measures and government policies that can, as a package, reduce GHG emissions from Canadian farms by approximately 30% by 2030 and perhaps by 50% by 2050"

" The solution to the farm crisis and the solution to the climate crisis are, to a large degree, the same: a decreased dependence on high-emission petro-industrial farm inputs and an increasing reliance on ecological cycles, biology, energy from the sun, and the knowledge, wisdom, and judgment of farm families on the land."

"So, where’s the good news? It begins with the knowledge that a focus on high-output, high-input agriculture is the primary cause of the farm crisis and the primary cause of the increasing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from our farms and food-production systems."

“But private industry wants all kinds of things before they develop varieties — mostly guaranteed massive profits.”

"The search for those profits has put significant strain on Canadian farmers over the past several decades."

@Gargron Radical self-care, combined with radical care for others.

Activists often are self-sacrificing to a fault, which is understandable given the stakes, but holding civilization together will be a marathon, not a sprint. We'll be dealing with climate change, racism, fascism, etc. for the rest of our lives. We need to make sure our contributions are sustainable, and avoid burnout. People who are already overwhelmed and burned out need to start by putting their oxygen mask on

"...for new-construction homes, installing a standard heat pump was cheaper than going with natural gas and a new air conditioning system on a 15-year net present value basis."

Sea ice extent in the middle of the #Arctic Ocean is currently the lowest on record (e.g., high Arctic ~80°N+ latitude). This is a pretty impressive statistic.
