There are many causes that are important to me, but one that I feel particularly passionate about is Palm Oil. In a nutshell, to grow oil palms, tropical forests need to be cleared. This leads to mass deforestation, particularly of natural old growth forests, which is most productive at storing carbon. The knock-on effect is significant > habitat loss, animal cruelty, human rights abuses, and a material contribution to climate change. Why is this a problem, because 50% of all packaged products contain palm oil, so a lot of forests are being cut down purely to harvest palm oil for products that we consume.
It is easy to point fingers at the obvious culprits, but the real power lies with us, the consumers. It is simple really, if you care about the planet, which I think most of us do, then start becoming curious about the ingredients contained in the products that you purchase. Palm oil is usually contained within processed/ packaged foods, snacks, beauty products, detergents etc. (image shows some of the obvious ones). It becomes easier to avoid when you start eating unprocessed foods and live a more eco-friendly lifestyle. Although still keep an eye out, as many organic products will say that they use sustainable palm oil, but really such a thing does not exist. I don’t have a big social media reach, this post won't make a big splash, but if even just one person reads this and changes their buying habits, then that is a worthwhile cause. I was shocked to see that the nappies that I have used for my kids and even the plaster brand that I still purchase contains palm oil! #saynotopalmoil #palmoil #palmoilfree #nopalmoil #palmoilfreeproducts #tawai_film #deforestation #climatechange #climatechangeisnotahoax #indigenousrights #consumerresponsibility #consumeraccountability

I thought that I would share this story with you to demonstrate why it is necessary to focus on solutions rather than the incessant chatter of denial and misinformation spread about climate change.

Recently, a certain head of state attempted to dismiss concerns about the ravaging wildfires in California by calling out ‘bad environmental policy’ and ‘lack of water’ as the real culprits to these wildfires. Melissa Breyer of Tree Hugger, in the article below, succinctly corrects this “leader” by explaining how California’s water supply for wildfires was never a concern and how the state’s policies are some of the most progressive in the U.S.. Breyer’s take on the on-going situation is poignant and underscores the array of finger pointing arguments for the wildfires— some reasonable arguments, some denial arguments, and overall just unproductive chatter on how to make real change on these wildfires.

So news from the Global Warming front...it’s not a hoax & it was 102 degrees at 7:07pm. 🔥

No filter.
I lived in Southern Oregon for 18 years, PDX area for 9 more. There were NEVER fires like we’re now seeing every year. No ice pack: no mercy. #climatechangeisnotahoax #dryaf #sad #protectnature #redsun #smokey

Cute right? These babes are vulnerable and because of carbon footprint...many are dying. It's a pity to lose these beautiful creatures because of carelessness. Carbon emission causes ocean acidification so by simply adopting a healthy lifestyle as cutting down ur meat intake, eat local fruits n veg (dwindle exports hence less fuel used (u get what I mean) REUSE AND RECYCLE.together we can do It. It's only a matter of choice ♥ #MakeAChange #ClimateChangeisNotAHoax

Due to heat 36C / 97F, we escaped to Cardada 1340m/ 4400ft - 22C/72F

Thinking of those risking their lives to fight the Furgeson Wildfire in Yosemite and all others across the West. #climatechangeisnotahoax

Unusually hot days cause the #suicide rate to rise, according to a study published Monday in Nature Climate Change. If a month is 1 degree Celsius warmer than normal, then its suicide rate will increase by 0.7 percent in the #UnitedStates and 2.1 percent in #Mexico.
🌞
“It’s sort of a brutal finding,” says Marshall Burke, a professor of #earthscience at #StanfordUniversity and one of the authors of the paper.
🌞
The finding has anxious implications for a world whose climate is rapidly changing. The authors project that roughly 14,000 people—and as many as 26,000—could die by suicide in the United States by #2050 if humanity does not reduce its emissions of greenhouse-gas #pollution.

Don’t mind me. Currently fangirl’ing over how woke high schoolers are these days.

I could complain, but I heard LA is close to 115F 😱🔥. #austinheat #climatechangeisnotahoax #summertime

Our guide Danny Stoffel went up to Allalin with this group today. On their way they found this huge block of ice. It came down as one of the Séracs collapsed last night. The block slipped down and nearly reached the @snowparksaasfee and one of the slopes of @saasfee s summer ski resort. As on many places on this planet, the glaciers around Saas-Fee change their face quite a lot. Despite the excellent tour conditions, we are back in the middle of a clearly too warm summer. Every additional degree of warming has a great influence on the sensitive structure in the high alpine terrain.
