Just realized my previous two posts are in the wrong thread - I managed to mix up "Death By Climate" with "Death By Pandemic". Oops.

Interestingly, Dr John Cook, who normally works on the psychology of climate science denial, and the link to right-wing ideology, has been working flat-out the last few months applying his conspiracy theory formulas to 5G and COVID19 in a series of lectures and talks.

It’s all linked!

It’s all about short-termism, isn’t it? No thinking about what’s next, nor even investing in it. Frankly, I’m dumbfounded all of the big energy companies aren’t making a shit-ton of solar panels to ‘loan’ out to individuals or other companies.

Absolutely - the solar panel industry is alive and kicking in the UK, despite the government removing the subsidies. It is currently far cheaper to create a kilowatt of energy from renewable  sources than any other source, particularly fossil.

It's old petro-baron/state money clinging desperately on to their estate is the problem.

An open letter to the #EU urging it to treat the Climate Crisis as an actual emergency, to prevent the worst impact of man-made global warming.

Signed by Greta Thunberg and Professor Michael E Mann amongst many other scientists, communicators, and others persons of repute in the field of climate science.

As we see temperatures in Baghdad soar to 51.7C/125F, bringing the spectre of uninhabitable stretches of the world ever closer, the U.K. Met Office releases an alarming report re how climate is changing in the U.K.

Blimey! Have you seen the New Zealand governments Climate Change Risk assessment?! See link!

It’s a full-on analysis of how climate change will fuck up NZ unless measures are taken, a discussion of what those measures should be, and an enactment plan.

This is the kind of thing we should be seeing in governments around the world!
