BREAKING: I'm taking the UK government to court to pull the plug on public payments for big polluters. In recent years companies like @Shell and @bp_plc were actually #PaidToPollute. We think the polluter should pay, not us. Support our case here: paidtopollute.org.uk/

Such an antidote to despair to watch this video. In the words of Rebecca Solnit, ' To hope is to give yourself to the future - and that commitment to the future is what makes the present inhabitable'
260+ groups in the #StopEACOP coalition and @fridaysforfuture demand that the French government put a stop to EACOP. And that banks stop funding this destructive project. #StopEACOP

this hit very close to home. poverty scars you. if you grow up in it, it shapes, moulds + breaks you. unless you've been through it, there's no way of truly knowing what it feels like. v grateful to @BootstrapCook for incredible work highlighting this + impact of govt policies.
If you’ve never nibbled a stock cube to try to ease hunger pains, or drunk the formula milk that the foodbank gave your baby, you really have no business trying to tell people who have experienced real poverty that we ‘just don’t understand economics’. Oh, we really fucking do.

To keep global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees, there must be no new oil, gas or coal projects. So why does the UK have 40 new fossil fuel projects in the pipeline? @CarolineLucas 👏 #StopFundingFossils

NEW: Research finds that past @Conservative gov action to block onshore wind & cut green support has added £140/year onto household energy bills 📈 Customers now face paying £3.9bn more this year than they would have if those policies were still in place. independent.co.uk/climate-ch…

I think every leftist should pass this around once or twice a year just so we're all on the same page: from recently WW-II era CIA "Simple Sabotage Field Manual", guidelines for how to disrupt organizations.

Our court case may have hit a set back this week, but the fight to stop the flow of public money to oil & gas companies is just beginning. Stopping these subsides is an absolutely essential step towards a livable future for all of us. @PaidToPollute independent.co.uk/climate-ch…

While this week's ruling may have been disappointing, @PaidToPollute has succeeded in putting the UK's oil and gas subsidies firmly on the agenda 🚨 To truly enable a green and just transition, these subsidies must stop, says claimant @MikaelaLoach 🌎🤝 independent.co.uk/climate-ch…

What’s that, another climate pod?!: Welcome to Damages. Or as I almost called it “That’s a tort, motherfucker!” It’s Law & Order meets the climate crisis, on the 200+ climate cases around the world. Tell me again it’s hard to find climate stories. Podlink.to/damages

Woke up this morning to the radio talking about the cost of living rising a further 5%. It infuriates me the index that they use for this calculation, which grossly underestimates the real cost of inflation as it happens to people with the least. Allow me to briefly explain.

This is exactly our fight continues 📣 These companies are making millions off of surging gas prices and the UK continues to provide hundreds of millions each year to subsidise more production 📈 🛢️

A key point here - even if fossil fuels, pollution and extractivism weren't causing global warming, they are still destroying ecosystems and our health. Building an economy on endless extraction & production of toxic material is NOT a good idea.
“The total mass of plastics now exceeds the total mass of all living mammals” Another toxic threshold crossed, this one driven by the petrochemical industry. Even if climate wasn’t an issue, we’d still need to end fossil fuels. theguardian.com/environment/…

We will now consider grounds for appeal ⚖️ Regardless of what we decide: the billions the UK government has wasted propping up the oil & gas industry have finally been made public. The fight to stop the flow of public money to oil & gas companies is just getting started 🔥
