Beautiful day to paint for the water! “Standing Rock relit the fight for our water and for the very lives of indigenous people.” -Joye Braun @wellsfargo divest from oil & gas. #mniwiconi#nokxl#nodapl#keepitintheground
The injunction orders a temporary stop to bayou bridge pipeline construction in the Atchafalaya basin, but has no bearing on construction in the rest of the route. ETP has a track record of ignoring such orders and eating whatever fine they face. It’s important that those of us in opposition are vigilant right now about keeping the basin off limits to extraction violence and that we learn and practice monitoring the company in the areas they are still working in. #nobbp#nobayoubridge#keepitintheground#respectcultures#respectourwater#waterislife#mniwiconi#stopetp#repost @nobayoubridge

Did you know that we have already located more fossil fuels in the world than we could ever hope to use? If we burned all the fuels we’ve found so far temperatures would rise to an unsustainable level... and yet the fossil fuel companies keep exploring! In 2015 the @guardian made the most awesome podcast called “The biggest story in the world” that basically changed my life. I’d highly recommend it, it presents such a compelling argument to... #keepitintheground#beaclimatehero#climateheroes
“We can not afford to be fatigued about climate change” David Attenborough. His message to the world at the end of the incredible Blue Planet 2 series was clear and simple. Switch to a green energy provider. ♻️✅ #belikedavid#beaclimatehero#climateheroes 📷@telegraph
For the last couple of years I’ve been trying to influence people to switch to a green energy provider. It’s simple economics, the more people that demand green energy, the more green energy will be supplied and increased demand drives down prices. I joined when prices were still quite high, but I figured if I can justify a latte everyday then I can handle paying a few pounds extra a month to fuel my home, especially if that helps drive the cost down for those who every pound counts. Now prices have started to come down and if your home is electric only you could be in for huge savings. #switch#greenenergy#beaclimatehero#climateheroes
A year ago today, Militarized police entered the Oceti Sakowin or main camp at Standing Rock, removing the last remaining Water Protectors and ending the months long occupation of the land directly in front of the Dakota Access Pipeline’s path. The project has since been completed, and has been pumping oil with mutiple leaks through out Indian Country. Photo by @yaz_like_jaws of police meeting water protectors on the bridge near camp, where one girl nearly lost her arm from a non-lethal police ordinance, and many were sprayed with fire hoses in freezing temperatures. #ocetisakowin#standingrock#indigenous#policestate#militarized#police#nativeamerican#resistance#keepitintheground
