1/ Dear all, many among you have asked me about my opinion on #oil, #logistics, #pipelines, price movements and a reality check on the #german #embargo plans. So I decided to make another explanatory thread. Grab a beer, this may take a while to read.
2/ It has often been said that oil is a global #commodity that travels on the seas. That view is not wrong, but incomplete. In fact, much oil is shipped by pipelines, on all continents. For an imcomplete but illustrative overview, see
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_o…
3/ Most pipelines either distribute incoming seaborne supplies to inland consumers (e.g., refineries), or they route domestically produced oil to seaports where it is loaded on #tankers.

Quindi, ad oggi, la strategia economica dell’Italia si basa su

1) #PNRR con moltiplicatore 0.9, minore di 1 = debito senza crescita. Come dice lo stesso #Draghi, debito cattivo, senza alcun progetto di rilancio sistemico del Paese
2) Minacciamo #Sanzioni sul #gas #Russia senza avere alternative immediate, quindi facciamo aumentare il prezzo e continuiamo a pagare ed, indirettamente, finanziamo la guerra in #Ucraina
3) Nessuna strategia per rafforzare #Export, unica componente dell economia che tiene a galla il #PIL. Ne, nel dettaglio, una strategia di penetrazione di #Asia e #Africa, uniche aree che cresceranno nei prossimi anni

In risposta alle affermazioni del segretario generale Alleanza Jens Stoltenberg, secondo cui #Pechino pone "una sfida sistemica" alla sicurezza delle "#democrazie", il portavoce Ministero Esteri #ZhaoLijian ha dichiarato:
"Da tempo, il capo della #NATO ha ignorato i fatti e confuso il nero con il bianco lanciando accuse, diffamazioni e attacchi infondati contro la #Cina. Condanniamo duramente queste critiche.
La #NATO ha aderito da tempo ad un concetto di sicurezza obsoleto, impegnata in uno scontro a blocchi secondo un manuale da vecchia #GuerraFredda. Pur affermando di essere un'organizzazione difensiva ha costantemente creato problemi e scontri.

“The #UnitedStates tried to encircle #Russia from the west and south: starting from the #Baltic region, descending from Eastern #Europe to the western #BlackSea coast, from there along the Black Sea through #Georgia to the #Caucasus.
It was assumed that this line would reach #Kazakhstan and Central #Asia when certain conditions for this would arise,” #MehmetAliGüller said in an article published by the #Turkish edition of #Cumhuriyet.

The 1st #US objective to impoverish the population of #Russia failed: The ruble firmed up from 150 to around 76 per 1$ after gaining nearly 20% in the past two sessions. In #Ukraine, #Russia said it wld scale down military ops in #Kyiv. Ukraine proposed adopting a neutral status.
The evolution of the Rouble is so fast, regaining its position back from 150 when the #US (followed by the west vassals) imposed harsh sanctions on the people of #Russia.
Today is the last day of ultimatum to all 40 unfriendly states to pay their gas bill in Ruble or face the cut
Wait until the Ruble becomes an official currency worldwide and see how the #US, unintentionally, helped #Russia to drop the dollar in business exchange and offer this option to the rest of the World, willing to challenge the US hegemony.

1. Most interesting presentation by a prominent Russian academic of the economic and geopolitical rationale behind a #ChinaRussia strategic alliance. This is a key piece of the puzzle of "how we got #Putin wrong when we thought he wouldn't invade."
globalaffairs.ru/articles/rossi…
2. All evidence coming from Russian independent journalists and American intelligence sources point to the same story: In Putin's mind #UkraineInvasion remained a possibility rather than a certainty until his summit with #XiJinping
Xi was key!

3. The meeting 4 February #Beijing summit was a turning point in Chinese-Russian relations and also a milestone in the development of post-Soviet Russian foreign policy.

1/n 📢🧵: The @IPCC_CH launched their new report (WG2-AR6) this week, exploring the impacts of #climate risks, #adaptation & vulnerability. Here are some insights on the key takeaways for #India.🇮🇳🌏♻️
#ClimateReport #IPCC #IPCCReport

2/n #India🇮🇳 is at risk of multiple #climaticrisks, many of which are accelerating in frequency & intensity. Rising temp.🌡️are likely to cause severe heat stress in summer, esp. in cities where temp.🌡️can be more than 2℃ warmer than the surroundings due to heat island effects. Image
3/n Extreme rainfall events are projected to lead to more frequent #flooding in settlements near vulnerable rivers & flood risks across the country will become more frequent & severe. Higher than 🌏 mean sea level rise for #Asia’s coasts exposes 🇮🇳’s large coastal population. Image

#RussianUkrainianWar These days, the Western countries are no longer disguised, exposed their true face. If you understand the history of Western colonies will know that only the colonists have the so-called democratic and freedom, the other races can only be used as animals.
This colonial hegemony thought continues to date, it‘s still the dominant subconscious in the West. Even most of the Asia, Africa, Latin American countries are liberated, they will still be in the colonial-designed framework, play the role as farm, factory, mine, dumping market…
Sanctions on each field of Russia ——Economic, Sports, Art, Technology... This invisible frame has been appeared, as you see now.

I just published What is our interest in #Ukraine? link.medium.com/wJJXJfBD2nb

I’d like to begin this by saying something important: the attack on Ukraine is immoral and wicked, and deserves all the uproar that has accompanied it from wherever.
Sadly, that is about where it will get.

The world of geopolitics is not a moral place, and to quote the Athenians when they sent an ultimatum to the Melians during the Siege of Melios, “the strong do what they can, and the weak suffer what they must.
Herein lies the meat of the matter from my POV: in the end, the world of international geopolitics is about might being right, not about anything else.

This is why @CondoleezzaRice could pontificate about what @KremlinRussia_E has done without irony despite her role in #Iraq.

1/ Strict new rules on the use of #antibiotics and other #antimicrobials in pigs, chickens and other #farm animals come into force today across the #EU. What do the changes mean - and are they good for animals and consumers? A thread//
2/ In 2019 alone 5m deaths were connected to #AntimicrobialResistance (#AMR), according to a recent @TheLancet report. The deadly, drug-resistant infections behind these deaths come about because of the over- and misuse of antimicrobials, which makes bacteria resistant to them
3/ When drug-resistant bugs develop in animals because of antibiotic overuse they can easily spread to humans - often through #food. For example, rates of drug-resistant #salmonella have risen - & infections mainly come from #chicken & other #poultry. imperial.ac.uk/news/170889/an…
