I've been thinking about when a family outside Moscow told us in May they weren't worried their 17-year-old would have to go fight because the war would be over by "the end of summer."
Now it's September, the war's still going & Russia is drafting as many as 1.2 million men
Why do Russians back Putin's bloody & costly war in Ukraine? @VICENews follows the propaganda trail from Victory Day in Moscow to an army widow in Dagestan to the head of RT.

When I was in Volgograd region at the start of the war, an activist told me "we lost a million people in WWII, we can bear a few more."
That attitude may be changing, judging by this man firebombing Kamyshin city hall last night…
"Russian soldiers were found to have committed crimes of sexual or gender-based violence – with victims ranging in age from 4 to 82 years old."

Another revealing video. Scene inside a mustering station in Russia where an officer yells at angry, resentful men who have been mobilized.
“That’s it- playtime’s over. You’re soldiers now!”
50-80% of pilots & staff could be called up to fight in Ukraine, Russian airlines say.
As if it wasn't hard enough to get out of the country already ...…
With poverty rising, more than a million Afghan children are doing heavy labor like this boy at a brick factory just outside Kabul.

Dutch TV launches campaign for a referendum to return Russia to its historical Dutch roots…
Now if you protest the war, you get sent to fight in Ukraine.

Putin's spokesman just said it's not against the law to draft demonstrators.

At 4 Moscow stations, police have been doing exactly that, @OvdInfo says…

447 arrests across 25 cities in Russian protests against mobilisation (ovdinfo). Small numbers in attendance generally, but as these numbers show, the guys who came out are brave as hell. They deserve our respect.

Protesters used to chant, "Send Putin into retirement!" Now they chant, "Send Putin into the trenches!"

A few greatest hits from the Moscow protests. 447+ arrested around Russia today, per @OvdInfo

Arrests on Arbat. Hundreds of Russians protesting the mobilization order chanting “No to War”
Not many Russians want to brave beatings/arrest/prison, but at least 153 have been detained at protests against mobilization, @OvdInfo says. Vid from Yekaterinburg @AvtozakLIVE…

A @navalny activist posing as a military official asks Nikolai Peskov, son of Putin's spokesman, to report to the draft office.
"You should undersand, if I'm Mr Peskov, it's not entirely correct for me to be there," Peskov says. "I'm going to resolve this at a different level" 🤝

The ban on Russians entering some EU countries using tourist visas has this context now: you're effectively driving Russian men into Putin's army.
How are Russians reacting to Putin's mobilization? All Aeroflot & Turkish Airlines flights to Istanbul are sold-out at least until Sunday…

The Arctic ice is the highest priority tipping point. "If we lose the Arctic we lose the globe". Urgent action on mitigation is needed for this region.
To make sure all voices are heard in occupied Zaporizhzhia's referendum to join Russia, every home will be visited by a "brigade" of polling workers & police 👮‍♂️…

A close-door meeting in Sochi. An about-face for Turkey on Syria.

While it's too soon to consider a reconciliation between Erdogan and Assad, hard interests are driving Ankara ever closer into the orbit of Russia, Damascus's patron.

My long read…

Direct air capture (DAC) comparison update - Climeworks existing plant captures ~0.5 tons per hr- meanwhile Drake’s private jet emits 5 (FIVE) tons per hour. The new mammoth plant (2 yrs away) will do~4 tons per hr. Nearly keeping up with him. There is an easier fix here guys.

A "counter-terrorism operation" in downtown Kherson, according to pro-Russian channels. The Ukrainian "counter-offensive" comes to mind, and not just because of the wording

I recently ran into Oxxxymiron in Istanbul & argued about whether there's a Russian resistance.

US climate envoy John Kerry announces financial support for an African Development Bank program to reduce methane emissions in Africa
I’ve been working on this book project over the past few years and it’s finally almost finished!

It tells the full story of the most extraordinary espionage program in history, and is also a shadow history of Russia’s last 100 years from a new angle.

Should be out early 2024.

The bright green trees in this false color infrared image are dead (red highlights infrared, or photosynthetically active trees).

Bark beetle die off is a significant & major #wildfire risk because it leads to standing, dry fuels that can act as ladders for fire to climb up.

I have never seen climate carnage on the scale of the floods here in Pakistan.

As our planet continues to warm, all countries will increasingly suffer losses and damage from climate beyond their capacity to adapt.

This is a global crisis. It demands a global response.

EXPLAINER: Ukraine's threatened nuclear plant shuts down
As Ukraine routs Russian troops from towns in Kharkiv region, Putin is ... forcing a laugh as he opens a ferris wheel in Moscow. "140m tall, there's nothing like it in Europe!" He's hostage to the alternate reality he's created...
