The extreme arctic heatwave continues...
Last week the temperature reached 38°C in Verkhoyansk, Siberia, north of the arctic circle.
And +34°C was just recorded at a latitude of 73 °N (high above the Arctic circle...) today in Russia. That is about +20-25 °C warmer than normal.
But equally worrying is the fact that our societies fail to grasp the full meaning of this.
The longer the climate crisis is being ignored or downplayed - the longer people will remain unaware. And the political inaction is allowed to continue.

The climate- and ecological crisis can no longer be solved within today’s political and economic systems. That’s not an opinion. It’s just simple maths.

“The emperors are naked. Every single one. It turns out our whole society is just one big nudist party.” I’ve spent a lot of the lockdown writing a script for a radio show/podcast. The last edits were made tonight around 4am...
I talk about some of my experiences, reflections and meetings during the last year, the importance of listening to the science and above all why the climate- and ecological crisis can not be solved within today’s systems.
It is now available in both English and Swedish at sr.se and spotify (link in bio).
Programmet sänds kl 13 idag i P1. #sommarip1

The SOS Amazônia campaign is an initiative coming from us, Brazilian and international activists, created with the goal of helping traditional communities of the Amazonian territory battle Covid-19. Through collective international funding, we hope to raise 1 million Reais (about 195000 USD) to purchase of basic hygiene, food and health items. This action plans to benefit regions such as the city of Manaus and its surroundings and rural parts of the Amazonas state.
The health system in Manaus, the capital of the state of Amazonas and the main reference health center for most of the Amazon Rainforest's traditional peoples, has collapsed. As a consequence, millions of peoples' lives were put at risk. The city's press officers have announced over 100 deaths per day due to Covid-19, and this number can be higher with the addition of non-confirmed cases. We need to help both the rural and urban populations to contain the spread of the virus and therefore avoid the destruction of the heart of the Amazon.
The climate emergency is our generation's biggest challenge. If we do not act now the consequences will be devastating. The deaths of the Amazon's native peoples will be a loss with global consequences.
The contributions can be made by people from any country through the sosamazonia.fund website. The raised resources will be managed by a committee composed by us and FAS representatives. Throughout the routing of funds, we will inform everyone what is being purchased and which communities will benefit, maintaining transparency.
Help us to act NOW!
Save the Amazon.
If you have the possibility to help, please make a donation through sosamazonia.fund/en (link in bio!) @fffamazonia@fridaysforfuturebrasil
Devastating to see the development taking place in the USA.
Centuries of structural and systematic racism and social injustice won’t go away by itself.
We need a global structural change.
The injustices must come to an end. #BlackLivesMatter #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd
