The fossil fuel industry has spent years propping up Vladamir Putin— now, oil and gas corporations and those profiting off of the industry— are using the Russian invasion of Ukraine to profit. 
This thread and story from Judd Legum and Tesnim Zekeria at Popular Information— breaks down the oil and gas industry’s ties and how they are currently working to exploit the ongoing humanitarian catastrophe in Ukraine.
Eric Holthaus
Today's IPCC report — the latest installment in a 30+ year effort by the world's climate scientists to warn humanity of the climate emergency — comes at a moment when it feels like every aspect of the world is crumbling.

A thread, and a path toward hope:
Here is, our founder, Eric Holthaus’ take on the latest installment of the IPCC report. 
The findings are damning and gut-wrenching, but they also lay out a blueprint for how to work towards solutions and resilience. 
As Eric wrote, “It’s OK to despair. It’s OK to grieve. It’s OK to not engage on days you can’t. And it’s OK to fight like hell with every breath you have. Because what’s at stake? In short, everything. I’m here to tell you, in the words of climate essayist Mary Annaïse Heglar, that home is always worth it.”
That's it! Be sure to follow Currently on Twitter:
