An amazing journey from a very sick kid, to a world leader:
A couple years ago when the IPCC gave us approximately 12 years to get emissions way down, I started using the hashtag #TwelveYears on stories related to how far we have to go yet now I’ve been using #TenYears, but I’m being too conservative. #EightYears is our presently calculated deadline to have a 50% chance of protecting a survivable planet.
If you want to read something funny about bad people, here it is. Climate activist and hero Greta Thunberg is in Calgary and on her way to Edmonton for a climate strike on Friday, and the Premier is flipping out. He’s one of the hypothetical middle age white guys threatened by a 16 year old girl bearing science data and a powerful message.
The #ClimateStrike was in Regina again this morning, and hundreds of people marched from the RSM to the Legislature to show their displeasure with the government for doing nothing to address the climate crisis.
The Government is doing less than nothing, they’re now actively harming the people providing solutions to the pollution crisis. Yesterday SaskPower shut down wind and solar applications, meaning no one can add renewable energy to the grid, and surpass SaskPower’s negligible plans to green our electricity supply.
Greta Thunberg’s lonely climate strike over a year ago has inspired a global movement, and the SaskParty had better get out of the way. The next generation isn’t going to take kindly to their destruction and obstruction, and neither will anyone else who wants a future in this province.
Dr. Brit Hall addressed the hundred of strikers about the excuse makers we all know.
The global climate strike inspired by Greta Thunberg and other young leaders concerned about their futures, is underway.
