A new study has shown that the planet is heading towards a temperature rise tipping point of ‘Hothouse Earth’.
Boiling hot temperatures and “towering seas” which could bring destruction worldwide.
This is the biggest issue facing all of us today.
“We need a fundamental re-adjustment of our relationship with the planet. A total re-orientation of human values, equity, behaviour and technologies”. Being Green changes everything - and only the Green Party is saying it. https://t.co/NTDlIepdwS
‘Hothouse Earth’ — a concept that could bring boiling hot temperatures and “towering seas” — could bring widespread destruction worldwide. Why are we discussing a roll back of fuel economy standards again?
The Hothouse Earth report just out is deeply worrying and a wake up call that is simply being ignored by our current decision makers.When you hear Michael Gove talk about the supposed upsides of climate change It's pretty clear he doesn't get it at all https://t.co/tYKbB0WZaa
It's not good enough that @BorisJohnson can peddle hate towards Muslim women and then simply encouraged to apologise. The consequences of his words can't be undone with a simple sorry (if he'll even say it) https://t.co/WRcw4Nx0XT
6 men have been found guilty of trying to smuggle Albanian migrants in overcrowded boats across the English Channel.
They were caught in a boat built for 6 people with 18 Albanians onboard. The migrants were charged £6,000 each for the journey from Calais
Despicable that fellow countrymen would want to partake in this kind of illicit activity. Though what is just as curious is that so called "poor migrants" would be able to afford the £5500 cost of the trip. #Kent #FortressBritannia https://t.co/D62FTEFAmK
My take on the #HotHouseEarth paper is it is a call to action not a reason for despair. It reinforces that less global warming (1.5°C) is safer for people & nature & to stop the dominoes falling needs deeper emissions cuts & enhanced sinks. https://t.co/ASkGz8p6D9 #ClimateChange
We need a #blueplanet2 moment for the climate. Can we look face-on at the reality of what's happening & change - get ourselves off #fossilfuels, plant #trees (lots of them) & fundamentally do life differently? #climatechange #poverty #lovetheworld

No surprise a six year period with no expected pension will do that. #WASPI women
told you so. Time to change the record and give 50s born women recompense. Already too late for many. 🖤🐝 #notgoingaway #onevoice https://t.co/0N8QqUgWth
“In these remarks @jeremycorbyn uses another appearance on Iranian TV to engage in further conspiracy theories about Israel,he also questions the Jewish state's right to exist
Is it any wonder he has resisted adopting the IHRA definition of antisemitism?"https://t.co/AuORo4lNEI
This is interesting re the pill - continued trend of women opting for coils and implants (LARCs) over oral contraceptives. Lots of reasons for this, Drs pushing LARCs and dissatisfaction with the pill being the main ones https://t.co/gZLGsEkLa5
@Tinkys_Winky US trade priority is with EU, with whom theyre negotiating a zero tariff deal. China is also more interested in EU because it is the largest trade bloc in human history.
As for stockpiling:
Could austerity be contributing to slowdown in UK life expectancy improvements? Would like to see LA breakdown for this. Bet slowdown more pronounced in Tottenham than Chelsea (for e.g.).
