Wildfires turning Canada’s boreal forest into source of #carbon

#Wildfires are turning #Canada’s vast #boreal #forest into a significant new source of #ClimateChanging #GreenhouseGas•es.

The shift, which may have already happened, could force firefighters to change how they battle northern blazes, said Merritt Turetsky, an ecologist at the University of Guelph and co-author of a paper that appeared in the science journal Nature on Wednesday

#Indigenous leaders call for #Arctic cooperation against #wildfires

Unusually hot weather along with dry thunderstorms this summer have combined to turn the Arctic Circle into a tinder box. More than 2.4 million acres of forest have burst into flames in #Alaska. 13 million acres – an area bigger than Belgium – have burned in #Siberia, #Russia, unleashing plumes of smoke the size of the #EuropeanUnion.

Are servers from #Facebook #Instagram, #Twitter, #Google #YouTube and #Amazon running with #renewableenergy?

If not, why are most of the green movements using these platforms, while any click could mean they are using fossil energy! I think it's not in their interest!

Maybe they haven't thought about it yet?
Could it be an argument for the #fediverse?
What do you think?

#Jakarta is #polluted, #sinking and #overcrowded, so #Indonesia wants to set up a new #city in #Borneo

The current capital, a mega-city of some 30 million people on the island of Java, is heavily polluted, traffic-clogged and prone to floods and earthquakes.
Much of the city is also sinking at an alarming rate and predicted to face serious water shortages by 2040.

{If they resettle the poor people too?}

#Alaska records warmest month ever in July with coastline barren of sea ice

Average temperature for month amid #Arctic #heatwave was 58.1F (14.5C), nearly 1F above previous high set in July 2004.
There is now no sea ice within 150 miles of Alaskan shores, according to an analysis. The pace of ice loss is “unprecedented” in 40 years of satellite records, scientists said, with the #BeringSea, which separates #Alaska from #Russia, left completely ice-free.

My #ClimateStrike week 17!!

I got a new sign and a new location this week!

Since 1909, my city has warmed 6.4°F (3.6°C), as depicted on my sign. It is past time for our politicians to act on climate.

Yesterday #climatejustice activists have blocked a cruise ship in #Kiel, #Germany.
They've done so by small boats and climbing.

In their cominique they explain their reasons, such as:

We have enough ships and money to travel around for holiday, but not enough to safe refugees. This is unacceptable. Cruise ships consume a lot of ressources incl. fossil fuel and by that spit out toxic gases and greenhouse gases. In times of a #climatecrisis, neither this is acceptable. Workers on the ships are heavily exploited, while very few become rich.

Cruise ships are run on an exploitive system that is destroyn our enviornment.

Let's stop them! #smashcruiseshit

Mother Earth is Mother to all of us.
She is our home and sustenance. We exist only because of her.
In this time of CLIMATE CRISIS the people of Earth are demanding right custodianship of the planet by WORLD GOVERNMENT.
Britain, Scotland, Wales and Ireland have led the way by RECENTLY DECLARING CLIMATE EMERGENCY.
The rest of the world must quickly follow to avert CLIMATE CATASTROPHE.
No more fossil fuels for energy production.
Immediately keep and maintain tropical and other forests.
Embark on a massive tree planting scheme worldwide.
Clean up and reduce plastics everywhere; especially the oceans.
Go to renewable and sustainable life and energy systems.
Reduce flood waste to zero.
Transition to a high plant-based diet.
Endeavour to cap population growth.
Introduce Climate Justice Law to hold big polluters responsible for their environmental destruction and the collateral damage.

We are unstoppable, another world is possible!🌍 Das haben auch heute wieder tausende Menschen in ganz Deutschland gezeigt.
Wir haben erneut die Schule und Uni bestreikt und auf den Straßen und Plätzen mehr Klimaschutz eingefordert.

Während wir jede Woche konsequent beweisen, wie ernst wir es mit unserem Anliegen meinen, beweist die Politik Woche für Woche, dass sie offenbar den Trend der Zeit noch immer nicht verstanden hat.

Wir werden auch weiterhin jeden Freitag überall in Deutschland zu finden sein, um die Politik an diesen Trend zu erinnern. Denn wir dürfen keine Zeit mehr verschwenden!
Unsere Streiks sind inzwischen zu einem Wettlauf gegen die Zeit geworden, den wir unbedingt gewinnen müssen!🌳😊🌍✊

The climate crisis is scary. But we can’t shy away from the facts, and we can’t deny that it isn’t an emergency. Young people know this.

If you don’t already know, I’m co organizer of @climatesavelowermainland with @taleah.marie . We are a chapter of the global @climatesavemovement 💚⁣

Climate Save it a grassroots movement to solve the #climatecrisis by ending animal agriculture and phasing out fossil fuels.⁣

Animal agriculture is a key source of greenhouse gas omissions which can all be eliminated entirely. It is also the leading source of ocean dead zones, deforestation , mass species extinctions, and excessive water use.⁣

Veganism and reforestation are critical parts of climate actions and along with illuminating fossil fuels, are our last hope against catastrophic tipping points for our climate.⁣


We have partnered with Extinction Rebellion Lower Mainland, some members of the BC Greens Party ,#FridaysForFuture strikers & The David Suzuki Foundation. ⁣

Right now our focus is on getting the township of Langley to recognize and declare a #ClimateEmergency as Vancouver City has done. ⁣

The council will re visit our demands in September. Until then we need your support! Please follow @climatesavelowermainland for more info on how you can get involved 💚

@climatesavelowermainland has joined forces with @extinctionrebellion to help bring awareness to our #climatecrisis . ⁣

Extinction Rebellions aims & demands are : ⁣


1. That the government tell the truth about climate change and the wider ecological emergency, Reverse inconsistent policies, and work with media to communicate with citizens. ⁣


2. That the government enacts legally binding policy measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from all sectors to net by 2025,and to reduce consumption levels.⁣

3. That regional national assemblys based upon more robust forms of participatory democracy are created (i.e Set ascends a somebody via sortition) to oversee these changes.

We couldn’t agree more! For more information follow @extinctionrebellion on Facebook : Extinction Rebellion Fraser Valley 💙

"Ireland has become the second country in the world to declare a climate and biodiversity emergency this evening. The move comes after a Fianna Fáil amendment to the Oireachtas report on Climate Change was accepted by both sides of the Oireachtas without a vote. Earlier this week, the Green Party moved a Dáil motion to declare a climate emergency after the UK did the same earlier this month. Green Party Leader Eamon Ryan said tonight’s declaration came under somewhat “unusual circumstances” after he moved the Fianna Fáil motion in the Dáil without any of the party’s TDs being present in the chamber. Ryan added that “it will be of little meaning unless we are now willing to act on the recommendations of the Committee.” Link - https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-48221080

Climate Change “Amplified” Bomb Cyclones, Droughts, Flooding, Heatwaves, Hurricanes And Wildfires Don’t Discriminate Between Democrats And Republicans. Hence, Climate Change Shouldn’t Be A Partisan Issue.

Yet, many republicans paint climate change as a “fake” issue peddled by democrats. Trump and other republicans do this because blocking climate change mitigation benefits coal and oil companies, which make substantial donations to the Republican Party.

Additionally, with climate change treated as a fake issue, republicans can avoid prudent spending on flood control all over the United States. America would have to raise taxes on big business and the wealthy to enhance the flood control areas in America that will be vulnerable to increased flooding over the next few decades.

Please note that rainfall has increased substantially in the Midwest since 1958. Given that human-influenced climate change has been affecting America since 1900, this finding dovetails well with climate change projections.
