Started the morning off with a speech about climate change and the future for youth, plus a stellar performance, ended the day with an arts and culture engagement at the MET. Just BTS things you know
This summer alone, over 100 million Americans and the communities they call home have been affected by extreme weather. We can’t just rebuild, we have to build back better. We have to invest in climate resilience to protect our communities and work to cut carbon emissions.
I’ve been to many protests—against war, against deaths in custody, Israeli apartheid, police brutality, climate inaction etc—and none have been like these lockdown protests. There is a clear difference between what is bound in love of community, and the reckless rage of assholes.
Waiting for Kerri-Anne Kennerley to tell us that anti-lockdown protestors should be used as "speed bumps" like she did during climate protests.
The Daily Mail has, predictably, cleared its pages today for a climate sceptic. Funny, though, that it doesn't find space to mention the author has made £££ from coal mining on his land. Or – talking of "devastating audits" – remind readers he was chair of, er, Northern Rock pic.twitter.com/6NcTFghcYQ
"I believe that every choice we make is the beginning of change, not the end," said Kim Nam-joon of BTS. BTS's seven members used their UN speech to promote vaccines and praise young people's resilience in the face of the pandemic and climate change. https://nyti.ms/3zsUTwX pic.twitter.com/EpL0NZTlER
Resilient transit is an environmental justice issue. When water floods subways that weren't built to deal with climate change, it's often people of color, the elderly, and essential workers who are left without a way home. We must build the transit our communities deserve.
BTS speaking at the UN & Blackpink appointed as official advocates for UN Climate Change Conference (COP26). i cannot stress how important it is to mobilise K-POP & their huge fanbase in building awareness for climate change, children’s rights, COVID-19 etc.
Paid leave, child care, climate action, health care, and affordable housing are ALL infrastructure.
love how CBC's election night coverage includes quips like "if climate's your thing" as if it's an ice cream flavour and not the biggest crisis humanity's every faced
This morning, after a very long worknight and a very intense work-month, I sent the last major edit of Fossil Future to my publisher. I honestly believe it will change the world by making an irrefutable case for growing fossil fuel use and against climate catastrophism.
Six weeks out from the UN climate summit and we're looking at a situation where delegates could arrive to find a city with empty supermarket shelves struggling to stay warm.
