Incredibly helpful reporting--Pulitzer quality. And it must have taken a helluva lot of work. twitter.com/eilperin/statu…
In Age, Activism and Tradition, filmed in the Memorial Chapel, renowned activist and author @billmckibben speaks about how the experience of older people, and older spiritual traditions, can contribute to climate change resistance.

Here's @CreeClayton on the CBC making a good point about *why* indigenous communities are so vulnerable to pollution cbc.ca/radio/thecurre…
Who's got a stamp? How about an envelope & a sheet of paper? The world's youth are addressing our #ClimateEmergency & could use a bit of help from us. Go to ThirdAct.org to learn how you can ask banks to stop financing #FossilFuels' contribution to the #ClimateCrisis. twitter.com/billmckibben/s…

The guy literally in charge of the buck is busy passing it. Maybe it's time for a new guy @350_US twitter.com/hannahdlang/st…
Did you know that Glasgow was where carbon dioxide was discovered? And where the engine that filled the air with it was invented? We must be as efficient at repair as we've been at destruction billmckibben.substack.com/p/glasgow-wher…
NYCity may ban gas in new construction--which would be a mighty big deal! Many thanks to groups like @nychange that fight in the trenches for serious shifts! twitter.com/nychange/statu…
Thank to y'all for your excellent work twitter.com/larutadelclima…
So good to see @RevYearwood out at this divestment protest in the streets of Glasgow! #diveststrathclyde
Hundreds of people are disco dancing in downtown Glasgow to force the local pension fund to divest. It takes a bit of explaining but I think it will work! #COP26Glasgow
227 environmental campaigners were killed last year. Yesterday we took some time to remember them. billmckibben.substack.com/p/the-climate-…

Truly wonderful climate news from Boston, where Michelle Wu @wutrain, is the next mayor She's going to show what a truly committed big-city mayor can do!
Too few frontline voices at this COP, which means: pay all the more attention to leaders like @mitzijonelle twitter.com/Avaaz/status/1…

If you're at work on something innovative in the world of energy and climate, apply for the Keeling Curve prize. It's a nifty thing! bit.ly/3jjTC6q
Talked to a bunch of people over here at the Glasgow climate summit today who are staying up late to make sure @wutrain Michelle Wu prevails in Boston's mayoral race. We need a big climate win!
Very glad to see @Third_Act_Org getting great press in Nevada! rgj.com/story/opinion/…
Many thanks to Amy Goodman, Juan Gonzalez and @democracynow for having always covered climate, long before others. It was fun to join them from Glasgow today democracynow.org/2021/11/2/manc…
Manchin is not the first climate saboteur--not even the first West Virginian Senator. Our dysfunctional and corrupt politics have hobbled the global climate fight from day one billmckibben.substack.com/p/our-broken-p…
Many thanks to Ron Turney and @IENearth for continuing to document this travesty. #StopLine3 twitter.com/HonorTheEarth/…
Back to the disco 70s for divestment action here in Glasgow. Can't wait! @Third_Act_Org twitter.com/FoEScot/status…
Big big triumph on Canada's West Coast, where Simon Fraser University divests, after years of work from @sfu350--and just weeks after the administration tried to punish their activism! Thanks thanks thanks for pushing! McFogg the Dog for the win! sfu.ca/pres/the-presi…

Truly important piece from @dwallacewells--to be read and thought about by anyone interested in climate justice. (And it does not remove for a second the imperative of driving emissions down now) nymag.com/intelligencer/…
Huge honor to introduce @vanessa_vash at tonight's @Pathway2Paris concert. She not only gave a gripping speech, she sang a gorgeous Ugandan song. The youth are getting it done! (And her book is out this week--don't miss it)
Incredibly beautiful! @JesseParisSmith has this entire @Pathway2Paris audience waving solar lights against a backdrop of remarkable Tibetan flute. (Lights now being packed up for off grid rural areas)
I wish you could be here to hear Patti Smith, @RebeccaFoon and @JesseParisSmith opening tonight's @Pathway2Paris concert before s totally enthralled house in Glasgow
Such fun to be with old pal @MohamedNasheed backstage before @Pathway2Paris concert in Glasgow. He seems fully recovered from this year's assassination attempt, which is great news for the climate movement.
That exhausts the hurricane alphabet, for the second year in a row. Which has never happened before. twitter.com/NHC_Atlantic/s…
Thinking that the Earth has infinite resources is an illusion. Things are running out, and we’re at a dangerous precipice, says @Melina_MLM of @SacredEarthSOL and @Indigenous_ca:

A blizzard of baseball metaphors as I try to keep score of events in in DC "Having paid off Umpire Manchin, Big Oil got a few calls to go their way yesterday, but the good guys put some runs on the board—maybe enough to send this game into extra innings" billmckibben.substack.com/p/biden-may-no…
Hey hey! @Third_Act_Org was on the march in northern California today too! Nice t-shirts!
Hundreds rallying outside @Chase bank in downtown Boston. And the average age is older than you'd guess! Thirdact.org backing up the youth!
Good to see older people literally backing up youth as we take on the fossil banks! @Third_Act_Org
Fossils against fossil fuels! Third Actors in Boston mobilizing to take on @Chase
"Meta" doesn't sound sinister at all.
The only real backdrop to today's hearing with Big Oil CEOS is: These companies knew all about climate change in the 1980s and chose to lie about it systematically for decades, which is why we're in our current hideous political fix.
We are very excited to announce our next event taking place in Glasgow on Oct 31st at the Theatre Royal. This night marks a crucial moment in history, as it is the first evening of the UN Climate Meetings (COP26). Our time is truly now to ramp up ambitions and action plans.

More big wins in New York State--and more thanks to great organizers! twitter.com/AlexAtFWW/stat…
Worth noting that Canada's power players are beginning to turn their backs on the country's withering dirty energy industry.
Eh! The University of Toronto--Canada's highest ranked university, and one-time home of everyone from @MargaretAtwood to the one and only @NaomiAKlein--DIVESTS From Fossil Fuel. Go Blues!! utoronto.ca/news/u-t-dives…
