Can we talk about the global "we"?

"We" is a big word in climate discourse. Just today I've seen a number of responses to #SR15 that use it, as in "we're fucking this up."

I'm here to say that this "we" is a fictional construct: ideological, obfuscatory, and dangerous.

Who is this "we"? Does it include the nearly one billion people who live on less than 2 dollars a day?…

Does it include the +/- 5.5 billion people who live on between 2-10 dollars a day?…

Fredagsrant om flyget: Det internationella flyget ökar kraftigt och kan fördubblas på 20 år. Flygets utsläpp av växthusgaser ökar plus att flyget i sig har negativa effekter genom höghöjdsutsläpp. Och flygets sk “klimatavtal” är fullt med kryphål 1/n…
Samtidigt visar ny forskning från @Stanford och @chalmersuniv att utsläppen från olje- & gasutvinning är mycket större än man trott, dvs det påverkar #klimat redan när fossila bränslen tas upp ur marken, så ännu fler skäl att snabbt bli fossilfria 2/n…
Hur vända på detta? Spelar det nån roll med kampanjer som #jagstannarpåmarken? Ja visar ny forskning, när människor tydligt deklarerar att de slutar flyga så påverkas andra att flyga mindre. “Leading by example” fungerar för att minska flygandet… 3/n

The western US has been on fire for weeks, with unbreathable air confining people to their homes and keeping some from getting out on a bike. In other parts of the world it’s straight-up car pollution doing the same. We’re going to CLEAR THE AIR with #bikeschool #bikes4climate.
We’re heading toward Global #ClimateAction Week so you’ll see that hashtag + #bikes4climate tonight along with #bikeschool.
My hot take: Too many discussions under headlines with words like #sustainability or #climate or #green ignore bikes as clean transport.
****Q1: How have forest fires, pollution, other air quality issues affected your bicycling? Fun fact (h/t @andrealearned): Bikes invented as tool due to volcano eruption pollution. See by @lloydalter. #bikeschool #bikes4climate #ClimateAction #bikehistory

One year ago, Hurricane Harvey had devastating impacts across Texas.

Ali, a rising sophomore at @TAMU, will talk about her experience during the hurricane, and why she’s now a #ClimateVoter on @AM2DM today.

WATCH LIVE: #DefendClimate #ActOnClimate
@TAMU @AM2DM Ali, on why she's a #ClimateVoter:

"I think at one point when we were evacuated and the people that evacuated were constantly watching the news and that point, i thought, how could we let this happen? Why am I sitting here?...I'm going to do everything I can."
"We need to become climate voters for our own health and our kids health and the future." #ClimateVoter

Maybe it’s time we got @SpeakerRyan up to speed then, shall we? (THREAD)
First, there’s the $43,000 soundproof phone booth Pruitt had installed in his office – which btw violates federal spending laws. Maybe @EPAScottPruitt is trying to hide something?
Then we learned that Pruitt was renting DC condo owned by an energy lobbyist with dealings at the EPA - for $50 a night. What does $50 a night in DC usually get you? 👇

Let's start here: Dan Rather does a good job summarizing the Sinclair propaganda facet of Trump's authoritarian regime.
Rump's authoritarian behavior includes subverting democracy, failure to be transparent, failure to be accountable, nepotism, cronyism, and many dimensions of financial corruption.
Trump's authoritarianism includes thwarting the will of congress, obstructing the protection of the environment, and putting property & people & planet at unprecedented risk.
