Revealed: Google Made Large Contributions to Climate Change Deniers


Google has made “substantial” contributions to some of the most notorious climate deniers in Washington despite its insistence that it supports political action on the climate crisis.

Among hundreds of groups the company has listed on its website as beneficiaries of its political giving are more than a dozen organisations that have campaigned against climate legislation, questioned the need for action, or actively sought to roll back Obama-era environmental protections.

Greta Thunberg to US politicians: 'Sorry, you're not trying hard enough' | BBC News

"Don't invite us here to just tell us how inspiring we are without actually doing anything about it

...[this is] not about youth activism. This is not about us... we don't want to be heard. We want the science to be heard."

Instead of submitting a personal statement... she sent Congress a major report on global warming along with eight sentences of her own.

"I am submitting this report as my testimony because I don't want you to listen to me," she said. "I want you to listen to the scientists. And I want you to unite behind the science. And then I want you to take action."

In some places, like Victoria in Australia, students and public workers are being actively encouraged to walk out of school and work.

"We want our kids to be engaged in the world around them, so we don't think it's fair to criticise students for holding a peaceful protest about an issue as important as this" [government spokesman to Melbourne-based newspaper].

There was worldwide outcry when the Notre Dame cathedral was on fire. Why is there not the same level of outrage for the fires destroying the #AmazonRainforest?

So #Fracking doesn't only require and pollute huge amounts of water, the #methane emissions also accelerate #globalwarming . And the EU just doubled the amount of LNG they want to import from the US. WTF? https://www.nationalgeographic.com/environment/2019/08/fracking-boom-tied-to-methane-spike-in-earths-atmosphere/

 

My question for you: How to motivate yourself to continue with confidence and serenity?


When looking through the stream activity on diaspora I come across some delighting posts about cats, some jokes, nice countryside pictures, wisdom and what ever else makes me enjoying a post. However, what hits mostly my attention are all the bad news shared here.

I grew up in Germany and do have good memories of living with people and remember many beautiful landscapes. Now I am living in Taiwan. Most of the news about Germany I receive via Diaspora. Not being in Germany and reading about what is going on there, I get the feeling that it becomes a no go area. Is it really as bad in Germany? Is there really no chance to change the course towards a different way of living together?
Is it true that the 'American way' is manifesting in Germany more and more? Are prepper, #afd and the like going to dominate the way of live in Germany or are those groups only highlighted in the media as a means of leading people's thinking towards more obedience to and refuge into the hardening rules of the state.

Are there ways to get more positive, inspiring or strengthening posts into one's stream? Can you recommend some tags or something I forgot to think about?

The above was triggered by this post. A post full of arrogance and hate for LGBTQ, African-American, Hispanic, Muslim ...

Iceland to lay a plaque marking it's first glacier to be lost to climate change.
The first of Iceland’s 400 glaciers to be lost to the climate crisis will be remembered with a memorial plaque – and a sombre warning for the future – to be unveiled by scientists and local people next month.

The former Okjökull glacier, which a century ago covered 15 sq km (5.8 sq miles) of mountainside in western Iceland and measured 50 metres thick, has shrunk to barely 1 sq km of ice less than 15 metres deep and lost its status as a glacier.

Researchers from Rice University in Houston, Texas, a leading Icelandic author, Andri Snær Magnason, and the geologist Oddur Sigurðsson will lead the unveiling ceremony at the site in Borgarfjörður on 18 August, local media said.

“In the next 200 years, all our glaciers are expected to follow the same path,” the plaque reads, in Icelandic and English. “This monument is to acknowledge that we know what is happening and what needs to be done. Only you know if we did it.”

The memorial is dated August 2019 and also carries the words “415ppm CO2”, referring to the record-breaking level of 415 parts per million of carbon dioxide recorded in the atmosphere in May this year.

Stop using single use plastics!
Shoppers worldwide are using approximately 500 billion plastic bags a year. That's a 150 bags a year for every person on earth. Over 100,000 marine creatures and over 1 million sea birds die because of plastic yearly. If you conscioulsy use plastic without trying to switch to eco-friendly resources you are responsible for marine life deaths.
