Just published my thoughts on today's #ExtinctionRebellion disaster.

Maybe the climate emergency doesn't need your approval, it just needs your attention.


@ruta the police have banned from protesting in London. Which hasn’t stopped them, but is a bit off.

And if you don't think this is true, or overblown, you're just not paying attention.

We have suspected anthropogenic climate change since 1938, and we've known it's true for decades. We're NOT DOING ENOUGH to protect our civilisation. It's now or never.

Arctic sea ice is recovering incredibly slowly this year - we're about to cross over the 2012 line, which was the lowest measured so far. nsidc.org/data/seaice_index/im

Protest is never convenient, but we'd be in a very different world without it. Let's not talk about disruption, let's talk about the goddamn climate crisis.

@charlieL@mastodon.social why, exactly? What have they done that makes them terrorists? I'd like to understand.

@shiro I like @tootapp - it works well and has a lovely touch of whimsy.

@BelindaJYV not a clue I’m afraid! But if they are, then good, it’s about time some rich folk grew a conscience.

@HyperV I think there’s someone speaking in the middle of the crowd. Couldn’t hear it over the helicopters though.

A fair few people are looking down on from inside the News Corp building - we can but hope they can inspire some positive change in there.

"Britain often displays a peculiar preference for doing things the way they used to be done then, rather than how they should be done now."

Quote of the day, right there (I was reading about swans: eu.usatoday.com/story/news/wor)

@torgo or through inaction cause a crosswalk to be identified.

@floppy corollary : a robot must not be able to identify a (US) cross walk, traffic light or fire hydrant.

Finally, things seem to start moving in the right direction:
