    In just a few days, on 2 August, Earth Overshoot Day is taking place. By that date, we will have used more from nature than our planet can renew in the whole year. Once we pass Earth Overshoot Day we are borrowing resources from 2018 - and yes, that means we are literally consuming our children's resources. And Earth Overshoot Day happens earlier every year. In 2007, just ten years ago, Earth Overshoot Day took place on the 6th of October. Our ecological footprint, especially in the West, is extreme and unsustainable at our current pace. Our natural resources, like trees and fish, continues to shrink, while our waste, primarily carbon dioxide, accumulates. We really must understand the importance of climate action and focus on using renewable and sustainable resources before we wreck our only home.

    Besides being extremely racist, this is also historical negationism. Macron just ignores centuries of Western colonialism, slave trade, etc.

    I think it's very much possible to live within the means of our planet. We have the technology and the knowledge to create sustainable cities and production systems. What we lack is the awareness and political will to transform our societies. We really must understand the importance of global and local climate action and the de-carbonisation of our economies, while we also focus on using our renewable resources more sustainable than we currently do. That means we need to change our lifestyle and reduce our wasteful consumption levels - and yes, that means we need to make some drastic changes (almost revolutionary changes) to our way of life. Becoming a vegetarian or a vegan is a good start. Earth Overshoot Day marks the day when we will have used more resources from nature than what our planet can renew in the whole year.

    DSA, Democratic Socialists of America, have announced that they are now 25,000 members strong, making them the biggest socialist organization in the U.S. since the Second World War. And even more impressive is the fact that they went from 8000 members to 25,000 members in just a year.

    If you want to share funny pictures I think it's better to start a Club about this subject. This way you can easily create specific categories and photo galleries inside the Club.

    Be sure to read this interesting article from Jacobin on the election in Venezuela. Venezuelans will go to the polls today to elect a Constituent Assembly - which will include 364 regional representatives, 8 indigenous representatives, and 173 additional sectoral representatives including workers, farmers, disabled people, students, retirees, business owners, communes, and communal councils - that will be tasked with revising the nation's Constitution. Read it: Which Way Out of the Venezuelan Crisis?

    Sverigedemokraternas partisekreterare Richard Jomshof skriver både på Facebook och Twitter att den moderata politikern Kahin Ahmed inte är välkommen i Sverige. Aftonbladet: SD-partisekreteraren till M-politiker: ”Du är inte välkommen i Sverige” Dagens Nyheter: Jomshof (SD) till M-politiker: Du är inte välkommen i Sverige SVT Nyheter: Richard Jomshof till M-politiker: ”Du är inte välkommen i Sverige” Detta är kort och gott fascism. Inget annat. Och det är en central del i Sverigedemokraternas politik. Det handlar inte heller om någon obskyr kommun- eller fritidspolitiker. Det är Sverigedemokraternas partisekreterare som säger detta. Det som är skrämmande är att dessa SD-höjdare numera vågar vara så här öppet rasistiska. Det här rasistiska uttalandet lär tyvärr inte få några allvarliga följder för Richard Jomshof eller SD då normaliseringen av rasism och nazism har gått alldeles för långt i Sverige. Nästa gång någon frågar varför Sverigedemokraterna är ett rasistiskt parti så är det bara att länka till detta. Det behövs inte någon längre förklaring. Sverigedemokraterna är ett vidrigt parti med en rasistisk politik. Det som är extra anmärkningsvärt är hur få M-politiker som har gått ut och försvarat Kahin Ahmed. Anna Kinberg Batra har ännu inte uttalat något stöd för sin partikamrat eller riktat någon kritik mot Jomshofs rasistattack. Det är bara när övriga högerpartier normaliserar och börjar samarbeta med rasister som de får verkligt politiskt inflytande.

    It's horrible and heart-breaking what happened in Charlottesville tonight. And the way the MSM is downplaying this attack, blaming it on "both sides", and how they have utterly and completely failed to properly describe it for what it is - a terror attack by a white supremacist against peaceful demonstrators - just makes me so angry and sad. This shouldn't really surprise me any more - but it still does.
