Over 1,000 scientists in over 25 countries worldwide took disruptive, non-violent actions and engaged in civil disobedience targeting governmental, scientific and corporate institutions to highlight the urgency and injustice of the climate and ecological crisis. 1/

Yesterday we demonstrated in front of @MinisterieEZK@twitter.com to demand that the government heeds the advice of international organizations such as the @IUCN@twitter.com and refuses the granting of a permit for NAM to drill for gas under the Wadden Sea

This new report finds that 200 land and environmental defenders were killed last year in the global South, by forces repressing resistance at the extractive frontiers of the world capitalist system. A total of 1,073 have been killed over the past 10 years. gwitness.org/defenders

"We really need to communicate clearly with urgency, without the neutral, measured tone that like typically, culturally were told to stick to... now is not the time for that. It's really, it's really an emergency and we need to sort of speak in those terms." @ScientistRebel1@twitter.com

what a surreal time to be alive. sure do hope society manages to shift into soon enough to limit the damage. if this happens it will be in no small part due to the courageous people engaging in civil disobedience to protect Earth and all of us

Calling academics of all disciplines!🎓Empower the public to end climate failure. Sign our letter today: bit.ly/3f4vtBm

Italy has decided to rely on gas for its energy needs. As we demonstrated in our occupation of the @GastechEvent@twitter.com in early September with @milano_xr@twitter.com, natural gas has no less climate-changing effects than coal. Clean gas is a dirty lie. Video👉facebook.com/ScientistRebellio 14/

Government and EU targets are still insufficient and do not guarantee that temperatures will be kept below 1.5°C. As the @TyndallCentre@twitter.com Report says, high-income countries like Italy should decarbonise by 2031. research.manchester.ac.uk/port 11/

This is also due to excessively slow approval times for renewable energy plants: it takes 6 years in Italy, compared to 6 months in other European countries. 180GW of renewable energy by 2030 are still awaiting approval (source: @Legambiente@twitter.com). 10/

According to the Italian government's Energy Transition Plan,renewable energy for electricity is expected to increase from 55.5GW to 171 GW by 2050. This implies an increase of 9% per year, while renewables are actually growing by 2.18% (2019) and 1.30% (2020). 9/

Despite this, the Italian government has not yet approved a climate emergency adaptation plan, unlike, for example, the British government. 👉theccc.org.uk/preparing-for-cl 8/
