    Greta Thunberg resurfaced on the world stage Saturday to condemn world leaders over inaction regarding climate change during a desperate plea at the Glastonbury music festival in the UK. The globetrotting 19-year-old climate activist warned of an imminent “total natural catastrophe” and demanded more vigorous action to save the planet as part of her surprise appearance at the festival, according to the BBC. The earth’s ecosystem is “not just changing, it is destabilizing, it is breaking down,” Thunberg told the festival’s audience while an electronic background displayed a graphic of increasing global temperatures. “This is not the new normal, this...

    A climate activist who died after setting himself on fire in front of the Supreme Court on Earth Day is a buddhist who hinted at his future self-immolation with a fire emoji under a Facebook post from 2020. Wynn Bruce, 50, of Boulder, Colorado, lit himself on fire on the court's plaza at around 6.30pm Friday. He suffered critical burns and was pronounced dead at a local hospital on Saturday. On October 30, 2020, he shared a link to an online class on climate change offered by edX, a free online course platform created by Harvard and MIT. Last April,...

    After Kerry laid out some of the administration’s goals, Mitchell wanted to know about concrete steps. While doing so she lamented that world events have caused gas prices to raise and people don’t like high gas prices: You know, let's—let’s-- agree that he has laid out, you know, some extraordinary goals and made some promises and that Congress does hold a lot of this in their hands. But, but there have been big events, like the war and, you know, Russian sanctions, the sanctions on Russian oil and he's had to go to the strategic reserves and put out more...

    Twitter announced on Earth Day that decided to remove any ads on the platform that contain so-called “misinformation” about climate change. The Washington Post reported that the platform said the removed ads “contradict the scientific consensus on climate change.” "We recognize that misleading information about climate change can undermine efforts to protect the planet," Twitter said of the decision. "In the coming months, we’ll have more to share on our work to add reliable, authoritative context to the climate conversations happening on Twitter." The new policy only applies to monetized ads. Twitter is not the only social media platform to...

    BERLIN (AP) — Twitter says it will no longer allow advertisers on its site who deny the scientific consensus on climate change, echoing a policy already in place at Google. “Ads shouldn’t detract from important conversations about the climate crisis,” the company said in a statement outlining its new policy Friday. The announcement coinciding with Earth Day came hours before the European Union agreed upon a deal requiring big tech companies to vet their sites more closely for hate speech, disinformation and other harmful content. Twitter said it would provide more information in the coming months on how it plans...

    John Kerry reiterated his concerns Thursday that the Russian invasion of Ukraine would distract the world from the pressing need to address climate change before it’s too late. “What’s happened in Ukraine has not helped to concentrate people on reducing [emissions],” Kerry, President Joe Biden’s climate envoy, told The Washington Post. “It’s concentrated people on trying to find substitutes for Russian gas and to meet higher levels of production because of low supply.” “But it obviously does interrupt the momentum that we had created coming out of Glasgow,” he added, referencing the United Nations climate summit in Scotland in November....

    Michigan’s effort to end coal production and replace it with solar energy is being aided by a woke public utility that has agreed to stop its use by 2025, this despite the state’s abundant energy resources, including coal, natural gas, and nuclear. Attorney General Dana Nessel announced an agreement between the state and Consumers Energy Company, which says on its website that it provides natural gas and electricity to 6.6 million of Michigan’s 10 million residents.

    SEATTLE (AP) — With a backdrop of flowering trees, it was a setting fit for the signing of major environmental legislation. Even Seattle’s notorious clouds parted as President Joe Biden stepped up to speak Friday. But when he sat down at a small desk with the presidential seal that had been set up for the occasion, there was no new law to sign, just an executive order directing federal officials to keep better track of trees in national forests. The gap between the scale of the global warming crisis and the president’s initiatives seemed wider than ever on Earth Day....

    President Biden on Friday celebrated Earth Day in Seattle with a rambling speech vowing to make “every vehicle” in the military “climate-friendly” while admitting his personal fleet includes a prized Corvette that “does nothing but pollute.” Biden didn’t offer specifics while telling local Democrats in a park that he intends to cut the emissions of war machines like tanks, helicopters and fighter jets. “I’m going to start the process for every vehicle in the United States military — every vehicle — is going to be climate-friendly — every vehicle. No, I mean it. We’re spending billions of dollars to do...

    “Climate change” is the last priority for Americans and has dropped as an issue that must be dealt with immediately, according to a CBS News/YouGov poll on Friday. The poll found that “climate change” was last on the list of most important priorities for Americans. Respondents ranked the economy (76 percent), inflation (73 percent), crime (59 percent), Ukraine (58 percent), immigration (48 percent), and then “climate change” (39 percent) in respective order of importance. Fewer Americans also see “climate change” as a pressing issue last year. Today, only 49 percent of respondents said “climate change” is a pressing issue and...

Leading scientists and Canadian novelist Margaret Atwood are among those contributing the book, that Thunberg hopes will become "an essential tool" in the fight against climate change. The book's...

    March 25 (UPI) -- Friday marked the resumption of worldwide school climate strikes by young activists intent on sparking action to deal with causes of climate change. Hundreds of protests were expected on all seven continents. On its website, Fridays For Future posted a map of planned protest actions.

    Teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg’s group Fridays for Future launched a series of rallies to protest Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The group said it plans to hold events in over 40 cities around the world. Fridays for Future specializes in “youth strikes” that involve students marching out of their classrooms to demand action on their climate change agenda. The same technique will evidently be used for the protests against Russia. “We are running a demonstration at 12 p.m., in the middle of the day, because the lives of the Ukrainian people have been stopped, not by their choice. We also...
