Very informative post via @fff.digital#EnvironmentalRacism is an increasingly important issue. The corruption of power within governments and institutions allows authorities to specifically discriminate against people of color through laws that limit access to environmental resources. The indigenous are especially affected, as their land is being taken away to build pipelines! We must demand #EnvironmentalJustice now to help stand with the indigenous! So #DigitalStrike the #PollutersOut to help #DefendtheDefenders!

Comment 👊 if you’re ready to #DefendtheDefenders

If you haven't read it yet, and have a bit of time on your hand we'd highly recommend @gretathunberg's six month travel diary in the 2020 climate change issue of @time.

She offers such great insight into how to think about solving the climate crisis and how our mindset, and particularly the mindset of world leaders, needs to completely change. There isn't a silver bullet, but so many of us are still wasting our time reaching for one.

Do you have a favorite climate quote?
