Hi Bowinn, have a look at my posts from @Lafarge_Canada ‘ribbon cutting’ that @GeorgeHeyman came to today. Because of @jjhorgan investment the #cement plant will reduce coal by 50-70%, as well as #GHGs. Landmark for Canada. Don’t give up hope. Fighting #ClimateChange is hard!
#climatechange is making extreme events like droughts n floods more extreme and affecting livelihoods and the ability of communities to produce food. - @RichardMunang @sakeenat_bello @ToniaUmeh1 @DeaBirkett @GretaThunberg @SustyVibes @BfpmNigeria @adesuwagreen @the_ecofeminist

No single person is immune to #climatechange droughts and dry spells will last longer, floods and hurricanes will be even more destructive. - @RichardMunang @sakeenat_bello @adesuwagreen @the_ecofeminist @Open4leadership @ToniaUmeh1 @Deanumar @SustyVibes @EBAFOSANigeria @svoska
Government can and does do good work - hard to remember that when all we ever hear about is the latest blunder and scandal. Great reminder from @MikeMintrom and colleagues on @ConversationEDU. @billbellew @ellyhowse @croakeyblog https://theconversation.com/from-gun-control-to-hiv-six-ingredients-of-successful-public-policy-117600?utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Latest%20from%20The%20Conversation%20for%20May%2024%202019%20-%201317612302&utm_content=Latest%20from%20The%20Conversation%20for%20May%2024%202019%20-%201317612302+CID_8ebad54207406571752d384f2fda4a81&utm_source=campaign_monitor&utm_term=From%20gun%20control%20to%20HIV%20six%20ingredients%20of%20successful%20public%20policy …
Great to be reminded that govt CAN take powerful and successful action. We need govt to put their minds and hearts to tackling #climatechange and #health. From particle pollution, heat waves, drought, water and food security... we need action now.
After feeling despondent about #ClimateChange, I feel a surge of hope today after watching #NorthVan-Lonsdale MLA Youth Leadership Council prepare for Climate Strike tomorrow & hearing #ClimateAction panel speakers talk about BC Gov's #CleanBC jump-starting critical intiatives.
