#Repost@fridaysforfuture.delhi ・・・ Yesterday, our beautiful humans went for a strike in Khan Market, sat at this one place for a couple hours, some people appreciated, while some laughed and walked away. Later walked around the market, stood in front of cafés, restaurants, shops, asking people to take action. The lovely humans later went and stood at Hauz Khas metro station as well, asking people to rise and shine and be because we don't have time. The more we ignore the fact, the serious this situation becomes, every passing day. Every passing minute. Every passing second. So, we urge you to come forward and join us for other strikes, we need people to come in large numbers, we need people to hold the govt and the industries accountable. We need to save the planet. The time is now.
In this video, you can see the smoke traveling across Brazil. The smoke could be seen and felt by people in urban areas of the country, but this is something that people who live near the Amazon and depend on it for their survival have been going through for years.
Companies and the government must stop putting short-term profits over the lives of people and the planet. Head to the link in our bio to demand companies stop forest destruction.
This happened on Independence day and boy are we glad we all are coming together for the Global strike. Near MIC college for engineering, post the flag hoisting ceremony we spent some time talking to the students and understanding where they are at.
An alarmist approach is necessary but it's more needed for people to understand why we are doing what we are doing.
🌳New publication!🌳 The @WWF World Wildlife Fund and @officialszl the ZSL Institute of Zoology have released "Below the Canopy: Plotting Global Trends in Forest Wildlife Populations." It found that we have lost 50% of vertebrate population since 1970.
Looking for some motivation to climate strike this Friday? For those lucky enough to be spared by nature's fury, fight for climate justice while you still can. Remember this is a global crisis. We all are in this together.✊🌏 @gretathunberg
To draw attention to *environmental change.* 😒 🔻 🔻 🔴India is in national air😷 and water crisis🤢.🔴 The climate and ecology are breaking down. For all that matters 'them', even the economy is slowing breakdown. 🔻 🔻 Our PM is busy venturing into the wilderness and suppressing the indigenous people of their land and forest use rights. 🔻 🔻
Champions of the Earth, honestly, that was a sarcasm Mr. Modi. 🔻 🔻
P.S. We are not against any political party, we are against policies that destroy the climate and environment.
Are you still hesitating from talking about climate crisis? * * Better the chants for climate justice than the cries for help in a disaster!! * * Each one of us is indebted to the planet and the future generations. * * So don't you dare live like you don't care about the planet and its earthlings! * * "For those who have the privilege to know have the duty to act. " Albert Einstein
🔴 India's city of Chennai is so dry from sprawl and population growth that it needs trains to bring drinking water. 🔴
21 Indian cities will run out of drinking water by 2020! 🆘️ 600 million people in India will be affected by severe water scarcity!!🚫🚫 Soon those trains will run empty.🌡 Humanitarian crisis is just looming around. 🛑
People's power bring CHANGES when communities come together and rise up for the same cause. Here the cause of fighting for our existence and that of all the earthlings has never been urgent than it is now.
We urge all activists groups, NGOs, civil societies, youth groups, schools and institutions to come together and fight for climate justice. Fridays For Future is a global movement for climate justice. Everyone is needed and everyone is welcome. Let your words speak of your actions, your climate actions!
This is important. Until recently, many environmental movements have made much of the general public AVOID supporting their causes . Recently, this seems to have changed [3, 4]. Why? Here we look at @extinctionrebellion (XR) and @fridaysforfuture (FFF) to identify some of the key aspects we need to maintain: . 📝 DEMANDS: Without clear demands, people fight for different things at the same protest. Extinction Rebellion has 3 clear demands  and FFF asks politicians to do what scientists recommend . This allows for measuring progress. . 🧘♂️ NON-VIOLENCE: Non-Violence is crucial to the reputation of a long-term movement of this type [7, 8, 15]. FFF and XR may obstruct roads , but no one gets hurt . . 👮🏻♂️👨🏿🔬👷♂️ NO STEREOTYPES: Many people don’t want to be associated with militant stereotypes , causing avoidance . But if people from all backgrounds participate, there are no stereotypes. XR is especially successful here [16, 17]. . 👸INSPIRING LEADER: @gretathunberg gives people courage, and someone to follow. Many successful movements had leaders that went down in history, such as Martin Luther King  and Mahatma Gandhi . . 👨👩👧👦 COMMUNITY: XR organises itself in small sub-groups , allowing for a deeper connection between members . This keeps people in the movement, which fuels consistency . . 🙇♂️ KIDS: Kids are not taken seriously by all , but several politicians thank children for their protests [9, 12]! Kids also make their parents concerned about climate change , potentially recruiting them. . 🔬TRUTHFUL CLAIMS: Some movements are guilty of 'blackwashing', whereby wrong claims are made to make the public concerned . This makes movements look less serious. For example, blackwashing of palm oil led many to wrongly believe that palm oil is _always_ bad , although certified palm oil is sustainable [2, 6, 21]. With @climate_science we want to fight misinformation. . . You are “the biggest threat” to the oil industry  and launched a wave of climate emergency declarations [4, 22]. Keep learning and shouting until everyone listens! . Reposted from @climate_science #fridaysforfuture#fffindia
Most often it's only when a disaster strikes any developed nation, a crisis alert is spread, especially by the global media. Heatwaves have become an yearly phenomenon in Southeast Asia and Africa since years. Our flawed systems didn't do enough! This year, the heatwaves in Europe has dismantled their lifestyle. Would they adjust and accept as most of the developed nations did? Or would they keep their carbon in the soil? Regions where winters brought snow are now looking towards a heavy rainfalls and wildfires. Alaska and Artic are on fire!! How long until we are too late? 🎞@wmo
Reposted from @justice4earth - PLEASE READ + SHARE ON YOUR STORY: This is a story that may have missed you but it’s one of the most important headlines of this year. Deforestation of the Brazilian Amazon has surged above three football fields a minute, according to the latest government data, pushing the world’s biggest rainforest closer to a tipping point beyond which it cannot recover. The sharp rise – following year-on-year increases in May and June – confirms fears that president Jair Bolsonaro has given a green light to illegal land invasion, logging and burning. Clearance so far in July has hit 1,345 sq km, a third higher than the previous monthly record - with five days remaining, this is on course to be the first month for several years in which Brazil loses an area of forest bigger than Greater London. Illegal loggers, miners and ranchers have become emboldened by Bolsonaro who has destroyed environmental protections on the Amazon and even gone as far as openly criticising Ibama (the Brazilian forest monitoring agency) for fining land grabbers who have illegally deforested land. Brazil is going backwards fast. After an 80% reduction in the rate of deforestation between 2006 and 2012, successive governments have relaxed protections. Clearance has been creeping up. Last year, deforestation rose 13% to the highest level in a decade. This year is on course to be far worse and the trend is back towards the dark days of the early 2000s. — Photo/article via @guardian — #Justice4Earth#JusticeForEarth#Brazil#Amazon#AmazonRainforest#Bolsonaro#JairBolsonaro#Deforestation#ClimateCrisis#ExtinctionRebellion#Rainforest#Forest#Trees#fridaysforfuture
Today we are acknowledging the very difficult emotions of dealing with the idea of #climatebreakdown for all of you who has chosen to follow us. Singing gives #hope and it brings people #together. As our #fridayaction today we would love to propose you all learn this song, we would love to hear you all sing it on the CLIMATE STRIKE the 20th SEPT - ✊🏼✊🏼✊🏼 - Reposted from @parentsforfuture_uk
🚫🚫🚫Humanity has logged a new dismal record today, exhausting nature’s resource budget for the whole year with over five months to go. This is the earliest #EarthOvershootDay ever, and it offers a stark reminder of how human activity is depleting our exhausted planet’s finite resources. #MovetheDate 🎥 @nasa - Reposted from @unenvironment
Deonar is the largest dump yard in Asia. Now you see an image of the same from space, only this time, ON FIRE.
Multiple such fires breakout regularly, only to release chemical smog that blows over the financial capital #Mumbai. If you thought the sea smells bad after a high tide, you haven't seen this.
Marginalised residents, complain regularly of babies continuously crying, with irritated throat, eyes, nostrils due to all the smoke. Respiratory issues found with many there including children. "We are not even the communities who make a living out of scavenging the trash. Those guys are worse off," say the locals.
Well the fires don't break during the rains, but then people live like the rats, with the rats, with the same diseases.
Human life in the world is going to end in the future?
🔴Nearly 4.3 million people have been affected by floods in 30 of the 33 districts in Assam. 🔴The river Brahmaputra has crossed the danger mark and ten other rivers have swollen up. 🔴95% of the Kaziranga National Park, home to the endangered one horned rhino has been flooded due to the torrential rains. 🔴90,000 hectares of agricultural land is flooded, many with standing crops on them.

WE ARE IN CLIMATE CRISIS. FFF INDIA STANDS WITH ASSAM. WE DEMAND CLIMATE JUSTICE!
🚱300 million people have been affected by severe drought due to weak monsoons💦 in the past two years. 🚱21 major cities (Delhi, Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad and others) are racing to reach zero groundwater🛢 levels by 2020, affecting access for 100 million people.👥👥👥 🚱 12 per cent of India’s population is already living the 'Day Zero' scenario, due to ❌excessive groundwater pumping, ❌an inefficient and wasteful water management system and ❌years of deficient rains. We are on an accelerated path towards mass extinction!!!🚫 -CSE Although Niti Aayog warned the government of the severe water crisis. Unfortunately, it took the government over an year to look in that direction. Water is a resource. It's scarcely available in 2019. Use it judiciously.
Creation of mantralays or abhiyans will not solve the ongoing water crisis. We need implementation. We need climate action! How do you suggest we conserve water in dried up wells and ground water table? Stop fooling citizens with another scam, oops scheme! Nal se jal scheme aims to provide piped drinking water to every household by 2024. We don't need new pipes, we need water in our existing pipes and tanks. Get your act together! @narendramodi For those you can conserve, don't be silly, conserve that precious water. Recycle and Reuse wisely.
