#ClimateWarriors

Repost @youthvgov This is happening today, in SF at the 9th Circuit, one of the most important lawsuits of our time. Today #youthvgov plaintiffs urge the court to allow their case to proceed to trial. Stand with these #climatewarriors as they argue for their right to a healthy atmosphere and a government that works to protect instead of pollute. Livestream at 10:00 PST Youthvgov.org #climatechange #ourchildrenstrust #keepitintheground

Deepest thanks to these courageous youth leaders who are suing the government for causing #climatechange and to help prevent worst case climate scenarios. #fossilfuelgovernment Regrann from @youthvgov - #youthvgov “plaintiffs get a pep talk from co-lead counsel Phil Gregory. Tomorrow morning they will stand before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to ask that their lawsuit, #JulianavUS, be allowed to proceed to trial against the Trump administration.”

Our future is bright with young people like Avery fighting for a safe climate! [Story shared from our group with permission.] "Today I am headed out to find this beautiful niece of mine a Pantsuit. Why? Because she has sued the President and is headed to Federal Court in San Francisco on Monday morning, December 11th.

You see my niece Avery is just a regular 12 year old kid. However, even at 12 she knows there are some pretty messed up things going on these days. And even at 12 she has a voice. So Avery (and 20 other youth from around the U.S.) have filed a federal lawsuit claiming that the government has put their future at risk by promoting an energy system powered by fossil fuel. And they were awarded the right to proceed to trial. Sadly, the Trump administration has appealed and now the 9th Circuit Court of appeals will decide.

But here’s the great thing- Avery is fierce. And so are the other kids standing with her to protect this beautiful planet. And she isn’t going to be intimidated. So, I am going to try and find this fabulous girl a Pantsuit as fabulous as she is!!"

Huge shout out to the WWU Students for the Salish Sea who hosted me last night at the Alternative Library for a fundraiser for the Lummi Youth Canoe Family. You are all so badass, and your courage and vulnerability is a gift. It was deeply inspiring be surrounded by your energy and passion. I seriously think I played one of the best and most present shows of my life last night, and it’s because the energy you were sending back to me. I am leaving Bellingham full of light and a heart ready for the work ahead.

Vivienne Westwood posing as Margaret Thatcher for an old Vogue cover shot. Reading her diaries in #getalife is like swift glides across thin ice. Her #politcalactivism is so admirable. @viviennewestwood thanks for the King’s Road days and everything else you do to inspire 🖤 #politicalactivism #climatewarriors #queenofpunk #inspiration

New up! Karin reflects on her experience of #COP23​, & finds that the most meaningful actions are still happening on the fringes - despite a supposed effort to bring marginalised voices to the fore. Read her account at Impolitikal.com

#COP23inBonn Bumped into Christiana Figueres, former Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC) who was instrumental in delivering the Paris Agreement—the most important climate agreement in history. I first met her when I delivered the Manila Call to Action on Climate Change in Malacanan in 2015 where she was part of former French President Francois Hollande’s delegation; was greatly inspired by her leadership in climate action. We both reaffirmed our commitment that we will never stop fighting for climate justice for a better world. I hope we all learn from her and imbibe that firm resolve to preserve our planet earth—our only source of life. #climatewarriors #womenleaders #ClimateAction #Uniting4Climate #Philippines🇵🇭 #Bonn🇩🇪

That's a wrap. My final COP as a Georgetown student. It's been an incredible, educational, and life-changing experience that I'm grateful for and it was a privilege to represent both @mccourtee and @gugsei. Time to do something with what I've learned. Stay tuned for follow up blogs and articles as a start. #ClimateWarriors

A few from the first couple days of #COP23. #ClimateWarriors from Georgetown. But really it's no sleep, pretty good espresso but terrible food, cash only (Germany), blisters on feet from the ridiculously far placed away different meeting room zones.
.
It's my third conference and it's fun and torturous, fast-paced and boring, hope-filled and pessimistic, culturally immersive and insulated all at once. So many different perspectives. Everyone is here for a reason and working round the clock to achieve it. Each day ratchets up the adrenaline higher with so many reminders in every session about what's at stake, the sense of urgency, the impending doom if we do nothing. The pressure builds from civil society.
.
My biggest take away so far is that the next 3 years are actually the most important. What happens now "pre-2020" will determine the climate pathway we are on. We can't wait anymore. If we don't want to geo-engineer this planet back to artificial stability later on this century then we need to fundamentally change the way we do everything, immediately. I went to 7 events today that highlighted new reports and research that scared the hell out of me.
.
The US is isolated in not understanding this. On Saturday the US is hosting an event to highlight fossil fuels -- not kidding. “The Role of Cleaner and More Efficient Fossil Fuels in Climate Mitigation" -- featuring speakers from Peabody Energy, major coal company. It's insane and so out of touch with reality/science/common sense it's mind boggling. But a warring faction of US cities and states have come to COP as well to put on their own events and make their own commitments "on behalf" of the US. #WeAreStillIn coalition are my heroes. More to come...

While the United Nation Climate Conference meets at Bonn, Germany, and there are still discussions about goals and measures, southeastern Asia is hit by another terrible typhoon.
And what looks like a beautiful touristic festival with orange paper lamps swinging under trees is actually a catastrophe that forces ten thousands out of their homes. Which country was devastated this time?
