@badbunnypr, photographed waving a Puerto Rican flag on July 17, joined protesters who gathered outside the Capitol Building in San Juan, #PuertoRico, as calls grew louder for Governor Ricardo Rosselló's resignation in the wake of "chatgate." The trap artist, who encouraged Puerto Ricans to take to the streets on Wednesday, said on Instagram he was postponing part of a European tour to join them in demanding #rickyrenuncia. The 25-year-old—real name Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio—was among several entertainers who showed up to support the demonstrators, including rapper René Pérez Joglar (@residente) and singer @ricky_martin, who was mocked in the chats. #BadBunny said he hoped even those who had never taken part in a #protest would pour onto the streets, without fear.

Today, Puerto Ricans from all walks of life and beliefs will come together to demand change. Puerto Rico will take the streets to demand that the governor and his team resign. They no longer represent the values of our people.
La Factoria will not open today. It is not a day for cocktails and music, it's a day for CHANGE.
If you want to help, make it visible! Share and spread the images of what the people of Puerto Rico will accomplish today. 🇵🇷💪🏽⭐️

Went to the @xrbristol climate change event today and it was amazing to see how many people have come together to call on our government to act now.
Bristol Itself is at risk of regular floods if climate change isn’t urgently addressed. Read more and over at @xrbristol and @extinctionrebellion 💚🌎💚

"ACTION NOW✊🏽 Amazing pic by @oceanic.elizatbeth! « All of us can make a difference. Use your voice, your iphone, your social media, your lifestyle choices, your time and talents. People, communities, cities, businesses and organizations are taking action. We are need to fight like our lives depend on it — because they do😃 » ⠀⠀⠀
Among what you can do, a new study says we all should start planting trees, at least 1 trillion of them, and fast 🌳🌳🌳
That may sound like a lot of trees, but the Earth has room for their gnarled bows and branches. In the new study that excluded cities and agricultural areas, researchers found that the planet has nearly 3.5 million square miles (9 million square kilometers) to spare for trees. Such newly planted trees could cut carbon (a part of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide) in the atmosphere by nearly 25%, bringing it down to levels not seen for nearly 100 years, the scientists said.
The team's calculation shows clearly that forest restoration is the best climate change solution available today. Once these trees have matured, they could store 225 billion tons (205 billion metric tons) of carbon, or about two-thirds of the 330 billion tons (300 billion metric tons) of carbon that humans have released into the atmosphere since the Industrial Revolution began.
The unfolding greenery could help limit Earth's warming climate. The most recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report found that adding an additional 3.8 million square miles (10 million square km) of forestland could limit climate change to 2.5 degrees Fahrenheit (1.5 degrees Celsius) by 2050."

This picture from the @extinctionrebellion Summer Uprising totally captures the pain many of us parents - and grandparents - feel. That feeling that it's all slipping away, that we are giving our children a broken, bruised, furnace of a planet that won't sustain them. We are on track, according to the best available scientific evidence, not for an increase in temperature of 1.5c (the temp the @ipcc says is safe) or 2c but of 3c or 4c by 2100. The arctic ice is melting, heatwaves and forest fires are already more extreme and deadly, and we are only at the start of global heating. We back @extinctionrebellion's call to ACT NOW. This is an emergency and our children's futures are on the line. Governments MUST ACT for the sake of our children. Image from Extinction Rebellion Lewisham (via Twitter).
NEW BLOG POST! Link in bio. "Politicians, activists and the media presumably latched onto the narrative of a 12-year deadline (now 11) to express how quickly we are approaching a climate breakdown and how urgently we need action at speed and scale. But is it a fair characterization of the [..] situation at large? And does a rigid 11-year timetable energize people to act or does it lead to apathy?" #climatechange#climatecrisis#globalwarming#climatecommunication#12years#deadline#protest#ipcc
