The contributions of women like Rosalind Franklin have been ignored for centuries but thanks to feminist historians their work is being recognised.
There's still far to go but the naming of this Mars rover in Franklin's honour is wonderful #WomenInScience https://t.co/GhfFBa4cr3
To avoid #EnvironmentalBreakdown, we need to see 3 shifts in political understanding, says new @IPPR report:
🐸 on the scale and pace of environmental breakdown
👥 the implications for human societies
💱 the need for transformative change
https://t.co/oZ95Y5NsO3 We agree.
Important report from @IPPR on the environmental crisis - calling for honest debate & action commensurate with the challenge.
Vote Labour - get a Green Transformation. Vote Tory - get a plastic bottle return scheme in 15 years, if you’re lucky... https://t.co/tugeYZ6SMp
The world faces multiple environmental crises:
🌡 Climate change
🐝 Loss of species
🚧 Top soil erosion
🌳 Forest felling
🐠 Acidifying oceans
Threatening to destabilise economies + populations around the world. And we’re letting it happen
“Of all risks, it's in relation to the environment that the world is most clearly sleepwalking into disaster. Damage to land, soil, air, water & animal populations, + climate change is creating catastrophic global risk": major new @IPPR report out today. https://t.co/RcSICoAQts
In the wake of news on global insect decline, today @IPPR reminds us that we face a multi-layered systemic ecological crisis - including climate change, species loss, soil damage & ocean acidification. This is why in 2020 we need a #GlobalDealforNature https://t.co/1dvME2yVs0
"This destabilisation is occurring at speeds unprecedented in human history and, in some cases, over billions of years."
When it all comes down, will you say you did everything you could?
#Climate change, mass loss of species, topsoil erosion, forest felling and acidifying oceans. The signs politicians and policymakers have failed to grasp the gravity of the environmental crisis facing the Earth says @IPPR@RHarrabinhttps://t.co/O44TMBzPAT
Cue the #pesticide industry calling for more poisons to control the pests due to their products killing all the good ones - BBC News - Global insect decline may see 'plague of pests' https://t.co/vb6LiCUaJQ
Environment is in multiple crises
“Since 2005, the number of floods across the world has increased by 15 times, extreme temperature events by 20 times, and wildfires seven-fold.”

A new @IUCN study has identified three tree species that are resilient to #ClimateChange and support threatened East Bornean orangutan populations, recommending their use in #reforestation efforts. https://t.co/PfIw28XWcJ
Environment in focus! Great to see @BBC coverage! Sometimes the climate debate eclipses other environmental risks which are also serious and will certainly make climate impacts worse. https://t.co/SDdCiVH62a
Environment in multiple crises - report https://t.co/mdMKXqYXMl. "We define this as the 'age of environmental breakdown' to better highlight the severity of the scale, pace and implications of environmental destabilisation resulting from aggregate human activity."
‘Human impact on planet has reached a critical point.’ #ClimateChange, deforestation, overfishing, animal agriculture, destruction of habitat, mass extinction of species etc, etc - leading to collapse of society and economy.
-Topsoil is being lost 10 to 40 times faster than it is being replenished by natural processes
- Since the mid-20th Century, 30% of the world's arable land has become unproductive due to erosion
- 95% of the Earth's land areas could become degraded by 2050 https://t.co/fENWeSjgG0
How are environmental orgs still fighting to get column inches and political engagement when the entire planet and the future of our species is irrefutably in crisis? What issue or story can be more pressing?! #OurPlanet #nature #environment https://t.co/j9d3LLag7v
natural solution that requires meat based farmland to go biomeat, which needs less agricultural area to free it up for the trees. Yvette will commit to developing the science of biomeat to achieve this and would not be wasting any time.https://t.co/z5ImmJWodZ
As long as we’re hellbent on mass production and consumer spending as being the benchmark of a successful healthy nation, this will continue. Simple.

Perhaps the most remarkably obtuse aspect of the @sapinker @billgates school of purportedly data-based optimism is its anthropocentrism:
