Loved seeing & my report in Vox's this morning. It's true--TP by and large relies on old-school recipes that are terrible for the climate & for forests. The disruption to create a new paradigm that doesn't fuel the tree-to-toilet pipeline is long overdue.

You don't need Silicon Valley tech to suck carbon out of the atmosphere. We already got it--it's called trees. And, as explains, we need to regrow and protect our forests, not turn them into dirty biomass.

Canada's betrayal of its environmental commitments goes far beyond one pipeline. As a steward of one of the last great forests left, Canada could finally claim the green laurels the international community already bestowed–but it needs to earn them first.

Need another reason to fight to protect Canada's boreal forest? It serves as a nursery for many of North America's birds.

California’s AB 936 would protect our coasts, waters, and wildlife from potential disasters by helping make sure that the state has the necessary information and plans in place to contain and clean up hard-to-manage non-floating oil spills 🙌 Learn more:

This is the most nonsensical clean energy plan I have ever heard. It's like an arms manufacturer saying they'll use proceeds to fund peace talks. Tar sands expansion and a clean energy future are irreconcilable, full stop. This is climate denial.

"Pipeline politics get @ a very Canadian conundrum: How do you become a global leader on climate when your economy relies so heavily on the extraction of fossil fuels?" You don't. Expanding tar sands=climate denial. Climate deniers can't be climate leaders

Hey guess what? Burning trees, which store carbon, for fuel isn't actually a climate solution. It's also decimating our forests. We need to keep our trees in the ground every bit as much as our coal and oil.

From shampoo to toilet paper, companies’ reckless pillaging of natural resources has to stop, and we need them to help chart a new way forward if we’re going to avoid a truly cataclysmic future.

The report warned that we're the last generation that can stop mass ecosystem collapse, yet companies like continue profit at the expense of our natural world. Wasteful practices like the tree-to-toilet pipeline have to end.

An undemocratic electoral body shafted a well-qualified woman in favor of a man with no experience.

Here’s an chart from 1982 where they accurately predicted that in the year 2019 we’d be at around 415ppm of CO2 in the atmosphere. They then went on to lie to the public and block action for decades to protect their profits.
