"Dimming the Sun to Cool the Planet Is a Desperate Idea, Yet We’re Inching Toward It" | Must-read cautionary essay in the @NewYorker about climate desperation and the dangerous lure of "Geoengineering" by my friend @billmckibben: newyorker.com/news/annals-of…

Good for @TeenVogue which has an excellent Georgia voter guide. The gulf between the candidates is...large. On climate, Walker believes we "have some of the cleanest climate in the world," while Rev Warnock has gotten federal money for a new battery plant teenvogue.com/story/georgia-…
I've always encountered a fair amount of hostility/threats/craziness here, but there's no question that it's amped up considerably in the last week. Now it's just stuff like this all day long, combined with abstruse charts about the Medieval Warm Period twitter.com/Snatchmo1/stat…
Wow. Would it really come to this? @billmckibben asks if we should consider spraying highly reflective particles of a material, such as sulphur, into the stratosphere in order to deflect sunlight and so cool the planet. newyorker.com/news/annals-of…

So, @elonmusk et al paid $44 billion for this website so he could influence world public opinion For 1/10th that price, he could try to adjust earth's temperature--(and he has a fleet of rockets.) I fear it's time to take solar geoengineering seriously newyorker.com/news/annals-of…
If we don't actually build renewables and slash emissions, the day will come when a lot of people will say: let's dim the sun. (And that will be an enormous gift to the fossil fuel industry) newyorker.com/news/annals-of…
The US has a moral and planetary responsibility to partner, not prohibit, on equitable climate finance. We cannot leave countries least responsible for the climate crisis to be sacrifice zones and bear this burden alone. Thanks, ⁦⁦@billmckibben⁩. newyorker.com/news/daily-com…

#COP27 had true accomplishments, thanks mostly to activists from the global South--but it feels like we're falling off the pace billmckibben.substack.com/p/the-tyranny-…
Sen. Manchin and Schumer’s #DirtyDeal would fast track dangerous fossil fuel projects that threaten our climate. We stopped it once and we will stop it again! Call your Senator and Representative at 917-791-2257 to urge them to block the #DirtyDeal using the script below 👇a

“The basic fight is between human beings and physics. And that’s not a fight we are going to win. Physics is immature. It doesn’t compromise. And so we need to respect its limits.” ⁦@billmckibben⁩ ⁦@ezraklein⁩ ⁦@nytimespodcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the…

Powerful and poignant piece from @nytimes on what climate change feels like in Madagascar: droughts, typhoons, and poor people's lives being steadily overcome by impossible conditions nytimes.com/2022/11/17/wor…
Young people often ask me what career offers a chance to help the world and a decent life. As I explained to @ezraklein the best answer might well be: 'electrician' twitter.com/nytopinion/sta…
So @ezraklein is a very smart and interesting guy to talk with. Also, i have a very large forehead in this picture. And perhaps in real life twitter.com/nytopinion/sta…
The climate movement has spent decades fighting for policies to help America reach net-zero emissions. Now that the Inflation Reduction Act has secured these commitments, @ezraklein talks to the climate activist @billmckibben about what’s next. nyti.ms/3GyS30T

After almost two decades working on climate, I was thinking this morning that it finally feels like we are starting to win. Most people now understand how urgent the problem is. @billmckibben, as usual, has his finger on the pulse. billmckibben.substack.com/p/someday-the-…

Someday the climate fight will be dull, and that's how we'll know we're winning. The Georgia runoff is nonsense about gas guzzlers versus dry boilerplate about a battery plant--and that's just the right tactic! billmckibben.substack.com/p/someday-the-…
Everyone should know @SvitlanaRomanko. No one without a gun has done more to stand up for Ukraine this year--she is as brave as they get. Good for her to get in the face of Russian 'diplomats.' twitter.com/SvitlanaRomank…
"We are at a moment when we could make dramatic, rapid change – and boy do we need to." Powerful, hopeful words from @billmckibben about the #ClimateAction we need right now. 🎧Listen!! ⤵️nytimes.com/2022/11/15/opi…0

Future physicists of the human soul may call this paradox 'Elon's Cat...Picture.'
What if Twitter collapses, and we're all happier and saner as a result--but we have no way to share with each other the news of this wonderful development in our lives? Will we then be sad?
Here's Newsweek, explaining some of the factors in the decisive Nevada win. Ignore the part about me--I just want all @ThirdActOrg folks to see the impact you're having, here and around the country. Thanks to all!
I've had a like/hate relationship with Twitter, but it feels as if one of those emotions is growing stronger. So I'm glad that I have a Substack project, free for all to read (and very glad that some people pay the modest, voluntary fee to keep it going) billmckibben.substack.com

Climate “loss and damage” is a great ethical question of our time and place, a little the way that slavery should have seemed in the 19th century: a case so obvious that it almost makes itself for those who can see. But--in both cases--not everyone can. billmckibben.substack.com/p/inconsolable…
“…people from the Horn of Africa [are] now suffering through the 5th straight dry rainy season, with a 6th on the horizon. They…had done nothing to cause what now destroyed them & their culture-the average Somali emits 1/300th as much carbon as the average American.” #COP27 twitter.com/billmckibben/s…

The pyramids have lasted 4,500 years; the effects of our warming will last far longer. A few reflections on 'loss and damage.' billmckibben.substack.com/p/inconsolable…
You know about Raphael Warnock (I hope). You might not know about @davantelewis, but he's in a crucial climate runoff too--and you can support both of them! give.champion.us/page/runoff-fo…
I just saw the exit poll showing that climate tied with abortion as the second most important issue (after 'economy/jobs') facing the country among voters. It beat out 'crime.' Very little punditry seems to reflect this washingtonpost.com/politics/2022/…

And an important note--this march was inside the COP, for the first time ever, not out in the public streets. Because we are having #COP27 in a police state.
Big march snaking through #cop27 right now-- finally some noise and life in this place!
