hosted by       Extinction Rebellion

Our leaders have failed us. This twisted system is killing us. It has us headed for extinction.
It’s time to rebel.

From April 15th we are calling for a full-scale Rebellion to demand decisive action from governments on climate change and ecological collapse.
Join us as we engage in acts of non-violent civil disobedience against governments in capital cities around the world. This is not a one-off march – we will keep going for as long as we have to, shutting down cities day after day until our demands are met.

Independent XR groups, allies and protestors will take to the streets. A small number of brave Conscientious Protectors, activists from XR affinity groups prepared to lose their liberty for this cause, will commit acts of peaceful civil disobedience to disrupt the business-as-usual which is sending our species on a one-way track to extinction.

Under our current system, we are headed for disaster. Catastrophic climate change will kill millions, cause food collapse, and render many more homeless. Mass extinction of wild species will lead to ecological collapse. Destruction of natural habitats will lead to genocide of indigenous peoples and the loss of our planet’s life support systems.

Halloween: Zombies attack Climate Criminals in Australia

Climate change can’t be ignored. We need to live more simply so others can simply live.

Australian ‘Zombies For Climate Apocalypse ’ gathered outside the office Of Warren Entsch Member for Leichhardt in Cairns….,. #auspol #qldpol #Halloween #StopAdani #EndCoal

We’re all walking dead without urgent #ClimateAction #ClimateChange

 

They were there to mark the death and destruction caused by fossil fuel economies.

Carrying signs such as ‘Warren Entsch’s Walking Dead’ and ‘Tony Abbott Bit Me’, the zombie horde drew the link between horror fiction and the fact of climate denialism within the LNP government.

The Zombie Shuffle is in solidarity with a zombie event being held at the International Mining and Resources Conference (IMARC) in Melbourne.

The MASIL Project (Mapuche-Aboriginal Struggles for Indigenous Land) has initiated the Melbourne event to highlight the damaging effects of transnational corporate mining on First Nations peoples.

The Mapuche are a First Nations people from Chile.

They have partnered with Warriors of the Aboriginal Resistance for this event.

Zelda Grimshaw explained, “People often joke about ‘the zombie apocalypse’ but we know it is only half a joke.

Droughts, fires, plagues, floods, epidemics, rising seas, terrible storms and other climate impacts really are the stuff of apocalypse, and we know that this is what is coming unless we end fossil fuel use.

“In Melbourne the global heads of mining companies are meeting to work out how best to profit from the extinction of our species.

 

First Nations peoples in Australia as elsewhere are on the front lines of mining and climate impacts.

Here in Queensland, the negotiation rights of indigenous landholders have been trampled by the State and Federal governments in order to facilitate the Adani mega mine.

So we are shuffling in solidarity today.

“We are a reef electorate.

The Great Barrier Reef is suffering as a result of Australia’s coal-fired power stations, fracking, and coal exports.

Our federal representative, Mr Entsch, has yet to take any meaningful action at all to protect our people, our towns and our reef from continued fossil fuel use.

This needs to change, and quickly.”

Stop Adani Cairns was refused an audience with Mr Entsch to discuss the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report on climate change, which warns that a temperature rise of above 1.5 degrees will have catastrophic consequences for humanity.

Stop Adani Cairns is demanding that Mr Entsch read the report and follow the recommendations to phase out coal and gas immediately from the Australian economy.

Candid Confessions Of 635 Former Climate Change Deniers


Who is the enemy leading us to Climate Catastrophe?

Before beginning, a note is in order. No one is claiming Kirk’s analysis is scientifically or statistically valid. Nevertheless, it is a useful tool for understanding the factors climate change deniers base their beliefs on.

Kirk ends her discussion with perhaps the most cogent and useful advice of all. “Be nice,” she says. “None of the commenters lauded the effectiveness of flaming arguments, shaming, or condescending treatment. Letting go of a long-held belief is hard.We can support people and give them rational, relatable reasons to appreciate the science of climate change. We have the evidence and the credibility on our side. Let’s not squander the high ground.” Amen to that, Karin. Ready to learn more? Let’s go.

Family Values Most Common Source Of Science Resistant Beliefs

This shouldn’t surprise anyone. Most people tend to adopt the worldview of their parents, family, and social group. Children of Democrats tend to be Democrats themselves. The same is true of Republicans. Religious beliefs and ethnic mores tend are transmitted from parents to children. The following comments were typical.

‘Exxon Killed The Reef’..Campaign To Stop Climate Criminals

exxon new

In 2016, the world witnessed the most devastating mass coral bleaching event ever recorded.

These reefs didn’t just die, they were killed. Help us spread the word and hold Exxon and their fossil fuel peers to account.

shared from 350.org with thanks  

The seas of dead coral are a crime scene.

This year, the world witnessed the most devastating mass coral bleaching event ever recorded which left behind dead reefs in at least 38 countries. Many of these reefs will never recover.

The immediate cause is clear: the ongoing rise in global ocean temperatures that comes from climate change. But that’s like saying “he was killed by a bullet.” The important question is: who fired the gun?

We know who the biggest culprits are. For decades Exxon and their fossil fuel industry peers covered up how much they knew about climate change. #ExxonKnew the truth about the damage they were doing, but instead of telling the public, they chose to hide what they knew behind a campaign of lies and denial and robbed the world of a generation’s worth of time to reverse climate change.

Activists covered the city in “Wanted” posters that call out climate criminals.

Activist group Avaaz thinks that climate deniers deserve a more forceful qualifier for their creative interpretations of the atmospheric sciences—it prefers climate criminals. On Monday morning, volunteers plastered more than 1,000 “Wanted” posters, featuring the faces and names of seven prominent fossil fuel lobbyists who have been obstructing the climate movement. The group put the signs up near Paris’s five-star hotels and handed out fliers to passersby at metro stations. Continue reading “climate criminals plastered in Paris”

Climate Criminals Rajoy, Cameron, Modi, Erdogan to face Charges


climate chaos

” ..Biggest climate criminals to be executed. ”

by Anya Keyes.   Indymedia

The destruction of the large Spanish renewables sector, ordered by premier Mariano Rajoy, joins him to the club of top climate criminals, alongside David Cameron of the UK, Narendra Modi of India, and Recep Erdogan of Turkey.

Now that Climate disaster is a proven and accepted scientific reality we can begin to apportion direct blame for crimes being committed. It makes no difference if there is a delay of decades between  a genocidal action and its consequences, if for example someone for personal profit hides a bomb in your house with a timer to go off in 10 years, he is still a killer, as are the club of top climate criminals.

Coaltastrophe Threatens Oakland

The current focus of this campaign is to stop the threat of coal being transported into Oakland by rail for export overseas.  Despite the opposition of the City Council, the Mayor, and numerous other politicians “saying” they don’t want this new threat, the proposal remains on the table

Coal Rally picturesWe need a massive uprising of concerned residents, not only but mainly in Oakland, to “buck up” our political representatives to effectively challenge the coal terminal developer.  If they cannot use their political muscle to stop the coal, then going to court, backed by the overwhelming majority of Oakland residents, will be the inevitable next step.

Divestment fever spreads to Canada as students, doctors launch campaign against fossil-fuel holdings

Calls in the United States for universities to divest their fossil-fuel holdings are starting to spread into Canada, where students and doctors are beginning to speak out.

Students from across the country are taking part Wednesday in what’s being called Fossil Fools Day, described as the first national day of action for the Fossil Free Canada campaign, an initiative being led by the Canadian Youth Climate Coalition.

More than a dozen Canadian university campuses are planning marches and rallies in an effort to urge their university administrations to divest their endowments from fossil fuel and pipeline companies. Many already have active campaigns. Continue reading “Disvestment: Campaign to Boycott the Climate Criminal Fossil Fools!”

Informe Fracking España: el Gran Fracaso del Mister Millonario

hyper-toxic-fracking-waste-water-2

(traducido con ayuda  google del inglés aquí) Cuando el señor Craig Steinke, director general y accionista principal de R2 Energy, llegó a Castellón para convencer a los alcaldes locales y la prensa de los beneficios de la extracción de petróleo y Fracking les dijo una sarta de mentiras. 41 alcaldes de las localidades afectadas por la aplicación de Fracking se reunieron en el Palacio Municipal, con la prensa, la televisión y una concentración de la Plataforma Contra el Fracking en el exterior. Abajo refutamos esas mentiras una por una, e ilustramos el escándalo criminal de la fractura hidráulico. (Ver referencia 1 Craig Steinke.)

Esta fue la gran oportunidad de Craig para conseguir un permiso de perforación , para impulsar sus acciones y hacer otra fortuna. Él ya había ganado $ 20 millones (approx) de la fusión de su compañía anterior, Realm Energy con el  San León, de la que también es director general, después de conseguir 10 permisos para frackear en el norte de España y así multiplicar los precios de las acciones, (era dueño de más del 30% de Realm). (ver Ref. 2 Realm Energy). Continue reading “Informe Fracking España: el Gran Fracaso del Mister Millonario”

Record #Coal Expansion dooming the Planet. Stop them NOW

coal vs bikeThe Road To Climate Disaster Is Paved With Coal: 1,200 New Coal Plants Planned Around The World

By Stephen Lacey  New data from the World Meteorological Organization showed that carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide levels hit record highs in 2011. As of last year, concentrations of CO2 — one of the most abundant heat-trapping gases — hit 390.9 parts per million. (350 ppm is what many scientists say is the upper limit on “safe” levels of CO2).

According to WMO, we’ve seen a 30 percent increase in “radiative forcing” — i.e. the amount of heat trapped on earth — since 1990.

To prevent climate breakdown, coal burning should be in steep decline. Far from it: the International Energy Agency reports that global use of the most carbon-dense fossil fuel is climbing by around 200 million tonnes a year(10). This helps to explain why global emissions are rising so fast.

To stop at +2 degrees most fossil fuels already discovered must stay in the ground. Developing new coal, oil, gas and fracking is plainly climate suicide, and would be banned but for the criminal sabotage by these same Corporations of climate mitigation talks. Prospecting for more fossil fuels is clearly a crime against the planet. In this scenario any citizens action to stop this is morally justified, no matter how ”illegal” it may be.

Houston Community fights #TarSands Criminals

Manchester, Houston: An Environmental Battleground

no Tar Sands31 Dec

On Thursday, December 27th, in Houston, TX, residents of Manchester gathered with allies to issue new demands on Valero. “We demand to know what you are forcing us to breathe!  ¡Exigimos saber lo que nos están obligando a respirar!”

The community came together in a celebration of unity and strength.  Manchester is populated almost completely by Latin@s, and surrounded on all sides by industry.

A massive Valero refinery looms over the community’s only park and its smokestacks poison the people who live there 24 hours a day 365 days a year.  Manchester is plagued by a long list of diseases and ailments including asthma, respiratory disease and inflammation, infertility, birth defects, and a myriad of deadly cancers.  The National Disease Clusters Alliance reports (pg. 2) that children living within two miles of the Houston Ship Channel have a 56% higher likelihood of developing leukemia than those who live more than ten miles away.
