People need to stop giving fossil fuel companies credit for acknowledging the threat of climate change.
If you acknowledge a poison's a poison but administer it anyway, that's murder.

How much are fossil fuels subsidized? 6% of the world's GDP, according to the IMF, goes to the richest companies in the world. In the US, it's over $650B: more than the Pentagon's budget, 10x what the US spends on education, and orders of magnitude more than goes to clean energy. https://twitter.com/GlobalEcoGuy/status/1231990032598093826

There are more “black issues” than police brutality, stop & frisk and criminal justice. And I’m not talking about that disingenuous conflation of class, race and economics that ignores white supremacy.

Enough of air pollution ruining our lungs
Enough of airport expansion wrecking the climate
Enough of big polluting projects like Silvertown tunnel, locking us into HGV use for decades
Enough of politicians in polluter pockets
