EU has voted yes to spending €29 billion on 32 major gas infrastructure projects that “will lock Europe into burning fossil fuels for generations.”
So much for declaring a “climate emergency”.... https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2020/feb/12/eu-accused-of-climate-crisis-hypocrisy-after-backing-32-gas-projects

Fiche n°3 : Le Déclin des Oiseaux.
Les #grèves pour le #climat ont montré que les jeunes placent l’habitabilité de la planète en tête de leurs priorités.
#Extinction #Rebellion croit que l’extension de cette priorité à l’ensemble des citoyens est la condition nécessaire à des prises de décisions à la hauteur des enjeux. Cette conviction passe par la 1ère revendication d’XR : que la vérité soit dite sur l’urgence.

„Climate impacts do not scale in a straight line. The impacts of 2° are not just twice as bad as 1°, they are many times worse. In my view, not meeting the Paris targets would mean a world, tough even for humans to live in.“

• The #Adani coal mine will double Australia’s coal-based carbon emissions.
• There’s no such thing as clean coal. You burn it, you put CO₂ into the atmosphere.

“Australia, with a three degree temperature rise, frightens the hell out of me.”
The captain of a fire service in rural New South Wales says his team are seeing fires on a scale they’ve never seen before - and that the evidence it is due to climate change “is overwhelming”.
Young people had the audacity to ask @RogerFederer (through a non-violent action) to stop supporting @CreditSuisse's investments in fossil fuels. The latter is suing the young people, and a fine of €20,000 is being imposed on them. Is this fair? https://twitter.com/jpvanypersele/status/1214495503813160960
Ecologists at the University of Sydney and WWF Australia estimate that a billion animals has died in Australia’s bushfires.
