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.

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

” ..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.
