Happy new year everyone! 🥂
Let’s keep the best out of this difficult year and fight even harder in 2021 🌍 🌱 ✊🏻
"Everything Must Go: Economic growth will destroy everything. There’s no way of greening it"
How Amazon uses social media to track environmental activism & social movements (incl. Greenpeace, FFF), perceived as a threat to its operations. How they track online activity of workers leading organizing efforts.
"53% of the protein is used to feed farm animals. 2/3 of this food is lost in conversion from plant to animal.
UN expects meat consumption to rise by 70% by 2030 (3 times the rate of human population growth). The land required to grow them doesn't exist"
"“Pedestrian infrastructure” is an oxymoron. In a place that’s hospitable to people, pedestrians don’t need separate “infrastructure”, they can use the streets as a place to walk, just as humans have done for several thousand years in cities with no cars."
Remember this when people preach about European ideals/values. A history full of concentration camps, colonialism & racism
It's 47 years since the Polytechnic uprising, that led to the fall of the military junta the year after, in #Greece
Today the government forbid any public gathering. A ruling, that was last time issued in that day of 17.11 of 1973.
"The stories we tell aren’t accurate doosmday scenario predictions. In the real world the natural disasters are almost all man-made. The AI was copied from stackoverflow by the lowest cost bidder." #Solarpunk
#EU "MEPs have signed a death sentence for nature, climate and small farms. For over 60 years, European farm policy has been blind to farming’s impact on nature, rewarding farmers for producing more or expanding their farms.”
“There are way easier places to work, but nobody ever destroyed the world on 40 hours a week.” ~ #ElonMusk
There, I fixed it for you.
The Earth Is on Fire
I’m 23 years old, and I’m not alone. My entire generation has come of age in a world so defined by #ClimateChange and human destruction—by forests burning and glaciers melting, by extinguished species and rising seas—that it’s sometimes been hard to fathom what an even more dismal future might look like.
From 1990 to 2015:
"The richest 10% of the world’s population (c.630 million people) were responsible for 52% of the cumulative carbon emissions"
"The poorest 50% (c. 3.1 billion people) were responsible for just 7%"
