We can’t let President Trump’s dangerous executive order undo all the progress we’ve made. Stand up and fight back: climaterealityproject.org/stand (link in bio)

Coal is a dying industry. Sustainable forestry is an industry based on life -- it’s good for the climate and good for rural communities. It is possible to create jobs AND fight climate change and we’re proud to support sustainable forestry projects in the heart of US coal country that are doing exactly that.

Sumatran UNESCO World Heritage Site Facing New Wave of Destruction
Friday 24th March, Press Release

A consortium of NGOs has released a report to the UNESCO World Heritage Centre calling for urgent intervention to prevent impending destruction of the globally renowned Tropical Rainforest Heritage of Sumatra World Heritage Site.
The 2.6 million hectare Leuser Ecosystem, located in the provinces of Aceh and North Sumatra, in Indonesia, is recognised as one of the world’s foremost “irreplaceable protected areas” by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature. It contains a large part of the Tropical Rainforest Heritage of Sumatra (TRHS) World Heritage Site within its borders, a site that has been on UNESCO’s “List of World Heritage in Danger’’ since 2011 due to ongoing destruction of its rainforest ecosystem.

Today, a wave of major new industrial projects being fast tracked for development within the Leuser Ecosystem threaten to destroy the integrity of the site, despite the fact that they will violate Indonesian laws and make a mockery of the World Heritage Site listing. Projects include several new hydropower dams and geothermal energy plants being proposed in critical areas, where a continued lack of law enforcement throughout the region has failed to protect anything. New Aceh Governor-elect, Irwandi Yusuf, has stated publicly that he will cancel the Hitay project; We are alarmed to know the company PT Hitay Panas Energi is still lobbying & pushing the national government to overrule this decision by Aceh’s incoming Governor.
The report submitted to the World Heritage Centre also highlights ongoing failure of law enforcement, and the ‘illegal’ Aceh spatial plan which seeks to remove the protection status of the Leuser Ecosystem, which is still being argued in court.

Climate change is the greatest environmental challenge of our time—now is the time to speed up, not reverse, the progress we've made. The Monterey Bay Aquarium will continue to advocate for science-based public policies to address the threats to society posed by climate change.

Video by Ed Kashi @edkashi/@VIIPhoto for @everydaylimatechange. Nana Acheampong and some of his family work on processing cocoa on their farm in Bonsaaso, Ghana on Oct. 3, 2015. Ghana is among the world’s leading producers of chocolate, but this production is predicted to be greatly impacted by global warming. An article on climate.gov explains cocoa producing countries like Ghana, Cote d’Ivoire, and Indonesia will experience a 3.8°F temperature increase by 2050, reducing suitable cultivation areas by a significant amount. “Rising temperatures alone won’t necessesarily hurt cacao production…the danger to chocolate comes from an increase in evapotranspiration, especially since the higher temperatures projected for West Africa by 2050 are unlikely to be accompanied by an increase in rainfall, according to business-as-usual carbon dioxide emissions scenarios. In other words, as higher temperatures squeeze more water out of soil and plants, it’s unlikely that rainfall will increase enough to offset the moisture loss.” #globalwarming #everydayclimatechange #cocoa #ghana #actonclimate #EarthHour

Twenty-eight years ago, the Exxon Valdez oil spill created one of the most devastating environmental disasters in U.S. history. The Exxon Valdez spill – not to mention BP’s 2010 Deepwater Horizon drill rig explosion, and Shell’s Kulluk drill rig running aground in 2012 – reminds us just how risky fossil fuel production can be, especially in places as unpredictable as the Arctic.

Putting a price on carbon pollution really is THE SOLUTION to climate change. Why? Because when you make polluting more expensive you get less of it. The good news is most people want carbon pricing to happen. Please support carbon pricing initiatives in your area. #PutAPriceOnIt #ClimateFacts #Resist #YEARSproject #PriceOnCarbon #carbonprice #carbonpricing #actonclimate #climateaction #climatesolutions #climatesolution #ourclimate #YearsOfLiving #YearsOfLivingDangerously #CarbonTax

Sustainability was born as a response to the degenerative paradigm that we've been living in for far too long. But imagine if we all replenished the resources that we've taken by incorporating the environmental as part of the economic model. 🌳🌲🌴🌱🌿☘️
Regenerative businesses are doing just that. Follow our conversation this week as we highlight the regenerative design model and feature businesses rebuilding our ecosystems. 📷  source: @Terra_Genesis

The great thing about our country is that individual States can make a huge difference, especially when they band together.

The federal government's dismantling of the Clean Power Plan and other critical climate programs is profoundly misguided and shockingly ignores basic science. In the face of threats from Washington, Governor Jerry Brown and I reaffirm our commitment to exceed the targets of the EPA's Clean Power Plan. #CleanPowerPlan #actonclimate #evironment #renewables #solar #wind #gogreen #cleanair #cpp #jerrybrown #renewableenwegy #climatechangeisreal #collaborate #collaboration #cleanenergy #zeroemission

What a wonderful place! @thefarmatbyronbay teaches people about farming + produce, and has some amazing community give-back initiatives in place.

CarbonSocial credits are an important  part of the WithOneSeed program – a social enterprise to support subsistence farmers in Timor-Leste to re-establish and maintain the forests where they live.

Reforestation is a key response to global climate change. It’s a ‘no regrets’ approach as it provides a highly effective form of carbon capture and storage while reducing soil erosion and degradation, improving the habitat, restoring the water table, and boosting crop yields and nutrition.

Since 2009, WithOneSeed has been working with subsistence farmers in Timor-Leste to generate income through community forestry. The program is improving the natural environment, building local economies, increasing the health of communities and reducing global greenhouse emissions.

With just one simple action, you can join the community of people taking real action on climate change.

You now have the opportunity to purchase from the first release of CarbonSocial credits – the only Gold Standard-certified carbon credits available from Timor-Leste.

Every CarbonSocial credit purchased removes a tonne of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, supports subsistence communities, and helps replenish the planet.

It’s carbon offsetting + ethical, social, environmental and economic impacts.

Two Step Falls, would you care to dance? Your #Spring flow takes my breath away.

I am incredibly grateful for the everyday citizens, leaders, and policy makers that had the vision and did the work to make places like this possible.
