In a speech at #COP26, @jokowi positioned Indonesia as a nation already on the right path to conserve its forests. But the government is moving ahead quickly with plans for more plantations in the rainforests of Papua. Read our editor's analysis: thejakartapost.com/paper/2021/11/…

If the fossil fuel energy was a country, it would be the most represented country at #COP26. More than 500 fossil fuel delegates are at the conference— two dozen more than the largest country's delegation, and twice as many as the indigenous constituency.

"None of this is anywhere near enough for the poorest, most climate-vulnerable nations—those who did nothing to create the climate crisis, but now face literal extermination because of it." @emorwee writes on #COP26. discontents.substack.com/p/the-whitest-…

1. Last night, the Post published a major story of mine -- authored with 5 colleagues, aided by many others still -- that has been in the works for months. It was intense but I am so happy with the result washingtonpost.com/climate-enviro…

One key to arguing that the Critical Race Theory discussion is on the level is pretending these tweets never happened

Last but not least, @emorwee of the newsletter HEATED talks about why the Glasgow climate summit “should’ve been covered like insurrection, but it’s super-not.” trib.al/VEfUZfE

I got the J&J shot in April so yesterday, per CDC recommendations, I got the Moderna booster. First and foremost, I want to say how thankful I am for scientists and medical professionals who made this possible. Second, I want to say, 😩😩😩😩 owwwww my army hurtyyy 😩😩😩
Wow. Huge. Yesterday for 1st time ever, 2 major analyses showed the world’s climate pledges, if enacted, would put us on track for <2°C warming—a critical threshold. Major caveats: these are pledges, not actual policies in place, & 1.5°C is the goal But…maybe we can do this?

The world cannot afford any new fossil fuel development anywhere in the world. Countries ceasing capital subsidies is a huge step forward, says @TimBuckleyIEEFA. It’s an avalanche building. via @jholz__ eenews.net/articles/green… #cop26 #energy #investing

in my defense, i was stoned
…in retrospect I realize i did not choose the more stoner-friendly profession
You gotta take a lotttt of math for that though and I was deeply committed to being a stoner. so journalism it was
Fun fact: before I found journalism, the only career path I felt passionate about pursuing was astronomy, mostly because of stuff like this (also, planetariums) twitter.com/themadstone/st…
At #COP26, the United States & 24 other countries and institutions have committed to end all public finance of fossil fuels in just one year. An extremely significant step taken to assist developing countries "leap frog" the fossil fuel stage of development.

just got a Paperless Post invite to a random D.C. networking happy hour event like it was 2019 or something, holy pre-pandemic whiplash
So if you're an NPR person who is pissed at me, I get it. But your employer is aiding in the spread of climate disinformation. That disinformation harms people, so I'm not going to stop talking about it. If you want me to stop, maybe take it up with your boss.
I've felt that same fierce loyalty. When I worked at ThinkProgress (RIP), I took any attack on its relationship with CAP as a personal attack on my journalistic integrity. But the attacks weren't personal. The relationship was shit. And that's why it's dead.
I get, though, why some NPR reporters are annoyed with me. Some folks who read my criticism of NPR's fossil fuel sponsorship *are* starting to distrust NPR. And it's much easier to shoot the messenger than it is to take a hard look at the company you love and work for.
But I have never said NPR’s fossil fuel sponsorships affect NPR reporting. That’s never been my criticism. My criticism is actually that NPR’s reporting is very good — and chronic disinformation profiteers shouldn’t be allowed to use it to boost their own credibility.
BTW -- I am well aware that some NPR reporters/editors are annoyed with me over my criticism of NPR’s fossil fuel sponsorships. I'm aware they believe I’m unfairly making people distrust NPR, and driving folks away from their journalism.
Correction on this tweet via an NPR reporter: hosts don't read sponsorship language, NPR gets a "separate voice" to do it. Still, that voice airs on the country's most trusted radio news network, so Exxon is still buying its credibility. twitter.com/emorwee/status…

And if you want to learn more about why The @guardian banned fossil fuel advertising, read my interview with the paper's interim chief executive heated.world/p/everything-y…
If you want to learn more about why Exxon's climate pledges are B.S., read this investigation in The @guardian (which happens to be one of the only major news outlets that doesn't accept fossil fuel advertising) theguardian.com/environment/20…
These NPR sponsorships are an example of how Exxon spreads disinformation to delay climate policy today. Exxon is not advancing real climate solutions. Its emissions reductions plans are BS. NPR's own reporting shows this. Yet it continues to willingly participate in the lie.
Exxon buys NPR sponsorships for a reason: So its hosts, some of the most trusted names in journalism, will repeat their climate propaganda. "NPR is supported by Exxon. Exxon is committed to reducing emissions and advancing climate solutions. Learn more at.." You get the idea.
For those confused - this tweet is not a criticism of NPR's reporting, nor NPR's practice of disclosing sponsors. It's a criticism of NPR's Exxon's sponsorship itself, in light of NPR's own reporting that Exxon uses such sponsorships to spread disinformation.
Incredible self-own, @npratc
This essential reporting comes from @FloodlightNews, a non-profit news collective investigates the corporate interests holding back climate action. You can support their work here--donations are being doubled through Dec. 31: floodlightnews.org
You've probably been seeing A LOT of Facebook ads lately about oil companies and banks having strong plans to fight climate change. They are lies, new reporting from @mirandacgreen and @schilukuri1 shows. theguardian.com/environment/20…
Wow -- Patagonia's CEO says the company supports a higher corporate tax rate to pay for climate investments, and says other companies should too "The price of climate change is only going to increase. It will cost less if we pay now." linkedin.com/pulse/corporat…
"@patagonia is willing to pay a higher corporate tax rate to fund the climate investments included in the Build Back Better framework Patagonia can afford a tax increase. The companies that make up the Chamber of Commerce & Business Roundtable can, too" linkedin.com/pulse/corporat…

Why do media companies ban ads for burning tobacco but allow ads for burning fossil fuel? Isn't burning fossil fuels also an acute threat to public health?

Watching that six-hour hearing on climate disinformation last week, it felt like Republicans had all received the same memo from Big Oil telling them what to say. Here's what I imagine the memo probably said: heated.world/p/a-strategy-m…

Wow -- this could be a very big deal, depending on the countries. Keep a very close eye on this. twitter.com/rachjuramirez/…

I love the @nytimes (21 years of my life). But if the parent company is flush enough to hold this plush event at #cop26 nytimes.com/live/2021/11/0…, it can afford to stop getting paid by fossil giants to make @TBrandStudio ads like these: revkin.bulletin.com/558174395365552 1/2

I have officially signed subpoenas to @exxonmobil, @bp_America, @Chevron, @Shell, @APIenergy, and the @USChamber. For far too long, Big Oil has escaped accountability for its central role in bringing our planet to the brink of a climate catastrophe. That ends today.
