#Cumbriacoalmine fact 4:

This mine will pump 9 million tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere *every year*

That's more emissions than Edinburgh, Cardiff & Belfast combined

We're in a climate emergency - we must #keepitintheground

So Nelson Piquet has been in the news. He was bashing Lewis Hamilton in a podcast over his coming together with Max Verstappen at Silverstone last year, but referred to Hamilton twice using the N-word.

Today I learned that Max has been dating Kelly Piquet since October 2020, Nelson's daughter.

The F1 world and media have rallied behind Hamilton to roundly condemn the use of racist language in sport (and wider society) as they should.

Puts Kelly and Max in a very awkward situation though.

Planning for a trip to GB in the summer hols. Have to take the pooch to the vet shortly for a Rabies shot, tapeworm treatment and an EU Vet Passport. Travelling between NI and GB has a few extra wrinkles these days.

The repeal of Roe should be treated as December 7 or 9/11. As a brutal assault by right wing authoritarian religious zealots. It is an all hand on deck moment. Democrats and other voters have to do more than just show up in November in numbers greater than they did in 2020. They have to become civically engaged. They should be fighting as if they were Ukrainians defending themselves against Putin’s Russia. We have seen progress rolled back in other countries like Germany, Iran, Afghanistan.

If Rishi Sunak’s £1.9 billion subsidy for fossil fuels isn’t “technically” a subsidy, does that mean it won’t “technically” produce CO2 emissions…? independent.co.uk/climate-chan

A truly barbaric ruling, and heartbreaking news for women everywhere

Reversing #RoeVsWade won't stop abortions, it just means they'll happen in dangerous, frightening ways - and women will die as a consequence 1/2

Abortion will now be largely illegal in half of the United States - taking us back to the dark ages & bringing the dystopian futures of fiction one more frightening step closer to reality

If you aren’t heart broken & angry & ready to fight back, why the hell not? 2/2

We’re Not Going Back to the Time Before Roe. We’re Going Somewhere Worse

We are entering an era not just of unsafe abortions but of the widespread criminalization of pregnancy.

A reminder for those of you who happen to be unlucky enough to live in the US right now with #RoeVsWade overturned:

Uninstall any proprietary period tracking apps you might have – they *will* snitch on you.

Use drip instead, its fully open source and doesn't include trackers[1].

My father-in-law Maynard Chan passed this morning from late-stage dementia complicated by COVID. He was a remarkable man. 1/?

It's 02.40 and I'm awake waiting for the meds to kick in. Temp is currently 38.2°C and explains why I had lots of body aches earlier. Took a COVID test and that was negative so have picked up a different kind of lurgi from somewhere. Have so much to do tomorrow I just don't need this 🤒

Fedi is the most strange thing in the world.

On normal social media, you write a message and people just ignore it forever.

Here, you write a message, it stays ignored for 1 or 2 years, and then all of a sudden, for no reason, with no explanation, someone finds it somehow, boosts it, and it gets 200 likes and 120 boosts.

What the fuck.

I'm sure someone will boost this message in 2021 or 2022.
