Decades of environmental justice work shows that communities facing racist violence are also overrun by fossil fuel extraction, pollution, and health disparities. The status quo is killing us so we have no reason to support ‘business as usual’ https://t.co/rSaLr49T0i

“There is something revealing in the insistence with which a people will question itself during certain periods of its growth. It is a moment of reflective repose before we devote ourselves to action again.” 70 years later, still a remarkable, timely read: https://t.co/JGgLRFHKxk

Our struggles are intertwined. Climate justice is racial justice. I wrote about it for Reuters: https://t.co/4uS4sxKbuh #BlackLivesMatter

The world lost more than 9 million acres of tropical forest in 2019. It was the third-largest total loss of old-growth since 2002. Only 2016 and 2017 were worse, when heat and drought led to record fires and deforestation, especially in Brazil. https://t.co/vAFq0prI4I

So hard to tell whether we’re effecting change or just voicing our helplessness together. But crucial to do it together, to remember that all looks immobile from the vantage point of the fulcrum — the vantage point that is the pivot point, the leverage point, the point of it all. https://t.co/MgUOLd04IM

'Whose money? Whose power?', our 4th Online Covid-19 conversation on wealth inequalities, tax justice and role of civil society. This is relevant more than ever- as wealthy are amassing wealth during pandemic and poor are further pushed to the margins. #changethesocialcontract https://t.co/6cQAC6Q3vw

So instead of preparing & preventing a second wave of infections, prevailing opinion in UK & US seems to be: maybe this virus will go away, let's wait & see. Isn't this the Jan-March mindset that got both countries into the position they are in? Highest death #s in the world.

At what point will the international community feel the need to intervene in human rights abuses in the U.S.? Honestly asking.

I profoundly recommend this book to white people who are ready to open their minds, listen intently, reflect deeply, honestly and painfully - who are ready to do the work and be part of ending racism and changing the world. Thank you Layla F. Saad. https://t.co/DQMttX51RO

I wish this book had not suddenly become more urgently, more violently relevant, but it has. If you are wondering what you, as a white person, can do in the face of racist violence in the US and elsewhere, you can read and learn from this book. https://t.co/v9aSPZeGZS

It's time for the climate movement to be explicitly anti-racist. There is no climate justice without racial justice. https://t.co/BNNtFJ4GKW

Amidst the Corona crisis, let's not forget that crimes against nature by the @hunsencambodia regime continue unabated. This video exposes how far TOO MUCH #sand is being mined from the #Mekong, thus causing widespread river bank collapses, as @unisouthampton recently corroborated https://t.co/cSorI6a0ln

I am a macroeconomist who uses lynching in economic analysis & was a student of George Akerlof, Barry Eichengreen, David Romer & Paul Romer. When I taught at Harvard, I taught 2 fundamental equations for economic analysis: Y = C + I + G + (X-M) (1) and Y = F(K, L, A) (2). 1/N

Mark Zuckerberg is our greatest reminder that we should probably create a future system where being really talented at computer coding shouldn’t give you the economic and social power to completely destroy democracy.

⏳ Why don't we talk about #sand extraction as much as fossil fuels? One of many perceptive talking points in this interview from @nature with research fellow @Mettebendixen08 What can we do to reduce our reliance on sand? https://t.co/lutUhRynkP #sandstories #sandcrisis

Perversely, the Cummings scandal has actually been *helpful* to the UK govt in that it has directed attention away from its deadly incompetent handling of the Covid-19 crisis, as laid out by these Sunday Times and FT stories... https://t.co/GjpjiDkher
