#regram #rg @unitednations: @gretathunberg joined other youth activists calling for urgent #climateaction at the #unitednations Climate Conference #cop25, in Madrid, #spain. "Joined in solidarity we stand. Fight for climate justice!" the young people sang as they gathered. Youth have come together with innovators and influencers to demand that all countries address the climate emergency and equally share the benefits of climate action. They are pushing world leaders to show greater ambition as they discuss the next critical steps to save our planet and our future. 📷: @unfccc / Silvia Pascual
#regram #rg @fridaysforfuture: #weareunstoppable On December 6 more than 500 000 people marched through the streets of Madrid demanding climate action from all the politicians at #cop25. 🌍 Earlier in the day #fridaysforfuture activists staged a silent sit in inside the COP25 building to show solidarity with those who could not attend and make their voices heard. Especially with the people in Chile and South America who could no longer attend after the summit changed host-city. The sit-in resulted in the UNFCC having to ban press from two of its halls from all of the media attention it caused. #activismworks 🌎 #fridaysforfuturespain #activism #climatestrike #schoolstrike4climate #climatechange
#regram #rg @yaleenvironment360: One-third of — or more 7,000 — plant species in tropical Africa could be at risk of extinction due to climate change and human activities like logging, deforestation from agriculture, and mining, according to a new study. Another third are likely rare, meaning they could be threatened with extinction in the near future. According to scientists, the four regions in tropical Africa where plant species are most at risk are Ethiopia, central Tanzania, the southern Democratic Republic of the Congo, and the West African tropical rainforests.

#regram #rg @guardian: The European parliament has declared a global “climate and environmental emergency” ahead of the latest UN global crisis summit. The vote came as scientists warned that the world may have already crossed a series of climate tipping points. In a separate vote on Thursday, MEPs backed a resolution stating that current EU climate targets were “not in line” with the 2015 Paris climate agreement and backed a tougher target of cutting greenhouse gas emissions by 55% by 2030. While this is an improvement on the current 40% target, environmental campaigners said the EU's declaration wasn't backed by sufficient action. The Brexit party voted against both climate resolutions. . . . . . . #stateofemergency #climatecrisis #europe #europeanparliament #environment #climateemergency
#regram #rg @aljazeeraenglish: “This is climate chaos - what it actually looks like.” - Tim Gore, Oxfam’s climate policy leader.⠀ .⠀ Oxfam has found that people were three times more likely to be displaced by cyclones, floods or fires than by conflicts.⠀ .⠀ Here are some facts that show how it's mostly poor nations that are paying the price for climate chaos:⠀ .⠀ 1. In Cuba 🇨🇺, nearly 5% of the population has been displaced annually by extreme weather | 📸: Adalberto Roque, @afpphoto⠀ .⠀ 2. In Guatemala 🇬🇹, a six-year drought has devastated crops, bringing poverty and hunger | 📸: Marvin Recinos, @afpphoto⠀ .⠀ 3. In 2018, 3.6% of Somalia’s 🇸🇴 population were newly displaced by extreme weather events and 3.9% were newly displaced by conflict | 📸: Feisal Omar, @reuters⠀ .⠀ 4. The Philippines 🇵🇭 tops the list of countries where people are most at risk of displacement as a result of conflict and extreme weather disasters | 📸: Erik de Castro, @reuters⠀ .⠀ 5. In Pakistan 🇵🇰, repeated droughts and cyclones between 1999 and 2012 resulted in the forced displacement of entire communities. | 📸: Muhammed Muheisen, @apnews⠀ .⠀ 6. After the cyclone in Mozambique 🇲🇿, displaced women often lacked information on their legal rights | 📸: Zohra Bensemra, @reuters⠀ .⠀ 7. Small island developing states such as Tuvalu 🇹🇻 face the highest risk of internal displacement as a result of extreme weather events | 📸: Dave Hunt-Pool, @gettyimages⠀ .⠀ 8. The vast majority – around 80% – of those displaced live in Asia. A single event, Cyclone Fani, triggered the displacement of nearly 3.5 million people in Bangladesh 🇧🇩 and India 🇮🇳 in May 2019 | 📸: @apnews⠀ .⠀ 9. Storms - regular in Sri Lanka 🇱🇰 - are becoming more destructive as warmer waters contribute to higher maximum wind speeds and more

#regram #rg @cnnclimate: In the past decade, climate-fueled disasters have forced about 20 million people a year to leave their homes — equivalent to one every two seconds — according to a new report from Oxfam. People are seven times more likely to be displaced by floods, cyclones and wildfires than volcanic eruptions and earthquakes, and three times more likely than by conflict, according to the report released Monday. Oxfam, a nonprofit that is working to end poverty, is calling on world leaders to reduce emissions as fast as possible, and asking the international community to do more to fund recovery programs for poorer countries affected by the climate emergency.

#regram #rg @wmo_omm: Levels of heat-trapping greenhouse gases in the atmosphere have reached a new record high. This continuing long-term trend means that future generations will be confronted with increasingly severe impacts of climate change, including rising temperatures, more extreme weather, water stress, sea level rise and disruption to marine and land ecosystems. Today we released the Greenhouse Gas Bulletin which showed that globally averaged concentrations of carbon dioxide (CO2) reached 407.8 parts per million in 2018, up from 405.5 parts per million in 2017.
