Thirty years ago modelers created a "business-as-usual" scenario, known as IS92a, to help understand the potential future of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Relative to that prediction, all of our collective efforts have only slightly slowed the accumulation of carbon dioxide.

Hi @Keir_Starmer Here’s a test to find out who you are, if you understand the climate crisis or not, if you’re here for regular people or for the super rich. Call for a ban on private jets right now, today. It’s a drop in the ocean of what’s needed. I bet you won’t.

We are facing a climate meltdown. But where are Friends of the Earth, Greenpeace, WWF, the RSPB and so on? And where are their radical demands? Are they supporting peaceful direct demonstrations? Or is keeping their funds flowing more important as the planet goes to waste?

As the UK experiences its hottest day on record and faces unprecedented temperatures, @GeorgeMonbiot's lead article in his winning submission to The Orwell Prize for Journalism 2022 is a must read: theguardian.com/environment/20…

In Britain's biggest energy price crisis since the 1970s, @beisgovuk SoS @KwasiKwarteng writes to pull out of today's important evidence session, having agreed to it on *13 June*. He gives no explanation nor apology. This is not the way for senior Ministers to treat scrutiny.

As @RishiSunak recommits to Tory ban on onshore wind turbines in England, a reminder that... ...BUILDING onshore wind turbines is around 4x cheaper than RUNNING gas power stations. That makes it one of the very most obvious solutions to twin cost of living and climate crises.

Guys, I think I’ve solved it. Hear me out... We make any day the temperature goes above 32C in the UK an automatic bank holiday And then watch the big corporations scramble to fix climate change ASAP

We hit 40.2 C today – the highest temperature recorded in England. But climate denial, deflection, and minimisation is still rife in the British media.

With astonishing speed, the established environmental and conservation groups have been eclipsed by grassroots movements like @ExtinctionR, @Fridays4future, @GNDRising and @JustStop_Oil. Why? Because most failed to show the courage and leadership we need. theguardian.com/commentisfree/…

Here is why capitalism is fundamentally maladapted for the task of shrinking our footprint. Every time you manage to reduce energy use somewhere in the system, someone else will see this as an opportunity to increase energy use elsewhere. It's called the "rebound effect."

In #Heatwave2022 , many media are not even mentioning the undisputed role of #ClimateEmergency - when in reality their headlines should be that this heat wave is *nothing* compared to what is coming in just a few years if we fail to shut down the fossil fuel industry. 🔥☀️�VK

"The heatwave is more severe due to climate change. This is happening in a world which has warmed by nearly 1.3C so when heatwaves happen they are more severe than they would have been without human influence on climate." Professor Richard Betts University of Exeter, Met Office.
Quite apposite that the highest point of the heatwave is centred almost bang on Drax power station - the UK's single biggest carbon emitter and one of our biggest emitters of greenwash. By 2027 we'll have paid them >£10bn in subsidies for their contribution to frying us.

Those trees that cool down your entire neighborhood? They are suffering from *massive* heat stress too. Try to water them, every bit helps, & call your municipality to let them know that they need to water the trees on their rounds. Leave water out for birds & bugs. #Heatwave2022

Food billionaires have increased their wealth by £321bn since 2020. Two weeks’ worth of these gains is enough to fund the entirety of the £5.2bn UN appeal for East Africa, which is currently woefully funded at a mere 16 per cent. theecologist.org/2022/jul/18/bi…
