Green New Deal is technologically possible, experts say. But it will cost trillions of dollars, require expansive new taxes and federal programs, and could not be accomplished within the 10-year timeframe that supporters say is necessary. https://nyti.ms/2SN9aEe
Preventing the Earth from descending into a lifeless husk of a planet in a geological blink of an eye is technologically possible, experts say. But it will require confiscating unearned wealth from billionaires and ending the pointless wars we've been fighting for generations.
"If you’ve snoozed through or turned away from climate change news, this book will waken and update you. If you’re steeped in the unfolding climate drama, the voice and perspective will be stimulating... This is part of his aim: to startle and shake us."
El Niño is back. Extreme weather is about to get a surge worldwide, and there’s a 1-in-3 chance that 2019 will be the warmest year in recorded history. Buckle up.

Dr James Hansen et al: "The 2018 global temperature was + 1.1°C (~2°F) warmer than in the 1880-1920 base period ... The four warmest years in the GISS record all occur in the past four years, and the 10 warmest years are all in the 21st century." #climate http://www.columbia.edu/~jeh1/mailings/2019/20190206_Temperature2018.pdf …

We scientists sound like a broken record Every year we present the science & plead for action Not nearly enough is being done We can still tackle climate change but we must act immediately We have the means to make a difference we lack only the will
A mere 100 companies are responsible for 71 percent of global climate emissions. These people are locking you and everything you love into a tomb. You have every right to be pissed all the way off. And we have to make them hear about it. #ClimateChange
La "grève du climat" a rassemblé près de 22'000 jeunes vendredi en Suisse. Découvrez les images des principaux rassemblements en Suisse romande. #Greveduclimat #climatestrike #Youth4Climate #youthforclimate #FridaysForFuture
22000 on schoolstrike in Switzerland today. And way over 30000 in Germany. The people are rising. The world is at a tipping point. Now we have to continue pushing hard! Everyone is needed. This is just the beginning. #FridaysForFuture #schoolstrike4climate #ClimateStrike
“It was decided in the summer that forestry would be a major part of Iceland’s climate change mitigation and that we have to plant many more trees in the coming years than we have been doing. It’s a slow-starter...”

Over 12,000 Belgian students skip school for protest to demand action on climate change http://hill.cm/l9Vyvda
This is a masterpiece of climate journalism, and @jeffgoodell gets it exactly right. If you want to know how quickly our planet is changing, you have to look to the oceans. Oceans Are Warming Much Faster Than We Thought. Here’s What It Means:
If you've got some old fruit, I'm giving a seminar at the Oxford Climate Society @OxClimateSoc on Jan 24, "Climate’s holy trinity: how cogency, tenacity & courage could yet deliver on our Paris 2°C commitment" Abstract and venue attached.

This is what it means to be a 'world leader' in decarbonisation. Countries like the UK, which reduced its carbon emissions by around 10% over the last several decades, are nowhere. Time for some fast bowling, not spin, in UK politics. @beisgovuk @claireperrymp @KevinClimate https://twitter.com/BFNagy/status/1080975798134161408 …
Denmark has certainly led the way on electricity, but its total CO2 has barely changed since 1990 once aviation, shipping, imports & exports are taken into account. Just shows how far we have to go & how consumptions levels & distribution are pivotal to addressing climate change.
2018 has been yet another year of records and alarming developments as runaway climate change continues apace. Here are ten significant climate-related phenomena from 2018.
Twenty years ago in @Nature we concluded that recent warming was unprecedented in at least six centuries (https://www.nature.com/articles/33859 ). This year in @Nature, scientists concluded it's unprecedented in at least eleven millennia (https://www.nature.com/articles/nature25464 …). Guess we were wrong...
