This is just heartbreaking! In a colony of about 40 000 Adélie penguins in East Antarctica only two(!) chicks survived this year's breeding season. The catastrophic breeding event is a result of climate change, as well as overfishing, oil drilling and pollution. The Guardian reports: Penguin disaster as only two chicks survive from colony of 40,000 And it's not just about climate change, as John Sauven notes: Penguins starving to death is a sign that something’s very wrong in the Antarctic Adélie penguins tend to be regarded as as a species that could adapt better than other species to a rapidly changing climate. But coupled with both global warming and overfishing, they are having a hard time to survive - as this catastrophic breeding event so brutally shows.

untilThe summer has just begun with midsummer around the corner, and we hope that you have enjoyed the first few weeks. If you are thinking about how to spend the rest of this summer: why not join Climate Camp Sweden? On August 3-7, Climate Camp Sweden will take place on Hisingen in Gothenburg. The sign up for the camp is open and it would be great to see you there. The camp has been initiated by Fossil Free Sweden, Fossilgasfällan, Nature and Youth Sweden and Friends of the Earth, but it is open for anyone who wants to take action for a sustainable and just society. There will be workshops and seminars around these themes, and how we can organise ourselves to win. The camp will end with an action against the planned fossil gas terminal in Gothenburg harbour. There will be both a demonstration and a boat-action on the river looking forward to, and celebrating, our fossil free future. All in all, it will be a great camp with loads of learning from each other, building of a movement and fantastic, creative actions. Sign up for the camp today, and help us spread it to everyone you know!
Join the Peoples Climate Movement this April 29th in Washington, D.C. and across the country to stand up for our communities and climate. Everything we have struggled to move forward in the United States is in peril. Our loved ones feel under siege, and those in power in Washington are advancing a dark and dangerous vision of America that we know is untrue. To change everything, we need everyone. On the 100th Day of the Trump Administration, we will be in the streets of Washington D.C. to show the world and our leaders that we will resist attacks on our people, our communities and our planet. We will come together from across the United States to strengthen our movement. We will demonstrate our power and resistance at the gates of the White House. We will bring our solutions to the climate crisis and the problems that affect our communities to our leaders in Congress to demand action. We invite you to join the Peoples Climate Movement on Saturday, April 29th as we march to: Advance solutions to the climate crisis [that are] rooted in racial, social and economic justice and committed to protecting front-line communities and workers. Protect our right to clean air, water, land, healthy communities and a world at peace. Immediately stop attacks on immigrants, communities of color, indigenous and tribal people and lands and workers. Ensure public funds and investments create good paying jobs that provide a family-sustaining wage and benefits and preserve workers’ rights, including the right to unionize. Fund investments in our communities, people and environment to transition to a new clean and renewable energy economy that works for all. Protect our basic rights to a free press, protest and free speech. March with us on April 29th as we come together to resist and march for our families, our communities and our planet.
