Temperatures are about to reach 30°C in the whole Siberian permafrost-area during the next 2 weeks.
Unprecedented for such a long period, this early in the summer.

Some fragments from today's media discourse:

UK: It is far too expensive to save the planet

USA: Mass existential threat is a political "single issue"

NL: Everyone is going to pay the same carbon tax

Five reasons ‘green growth’ won’t save the planet

theconversation.com/five-reaso

1) Growth trumps efficiency

2) Overstated technology

3) No profit, no action

4) Green consumption is still consumption

5) The danger of guesswork

To change everything, we need everyone. It is time for all of us to unleash mass resistance – we urge the adults to join us. On September 20th we call for a global general strike. #FridaysForFuture #ClimateStrike theguardian.com/commentisfree/

Mobilizon, the upcoming open federated alternative to Facebook Events, has reached its first crowdfunding goal of €20k:

This covers development of the events software itself.

The next goal, €35k, adds federation through ActivityPub, which will let people on the Fediverse share and join events. This could be crucial to helping many more people leave Facebook 👍

France's largest free software organisation @Framasoft has just launched a crowdfunding campaign for an open federated events tool, Mobilizon:

Mobilizon would replace Facebook Events and similar closed services.

It would use ActivityPub, so people would be able to organise events on the Fediverse.

You can also follow its Mastodon account here:

“The EU uses up almost 20% of the Earth's bio-capacity although it comprises only 7% of the world population.
This means 2.8 planets would be needed if everyone consumed at the rate of the average EU resident.”

Yes, there's a sudden drop in temp and snow/hail in May, after an almost summer like April in Sweden. But look at the bigger picture.

Large warm areas in the Arctic pushing cold air southward.

And still, lowest sea ice record ever.

NEW STUDY: Researchers find that "permafrost collapse" in the Arctic is accelerating and could release 50% more carbon than previously thought, making "massive cuts" from human emissions "even more urgent".

It's official: Cyclone Kenneth is now the strongest storm to make landfall in recorded history in Mozambique -- and in the entire African continent.

DO NOT allow this disaster to go unseen.

Happy #EarthDay !
This is what’s needed to stay below 1,5°C of warming.

Note that this doesn’t include the aspect of equity, feedback loops or additional warming hidden by toxic air pollution.

Sorry to bother but it’s time to act.
