An interesting tactical #adaptation by the Russians in #Ukraine. Packing an old tank full of explosives and remotely driving it at Ukrainian positions. Of course, nothing new here. 1/10 🧵
2/ The German Army developed and used mini-versions of these during WW2 called Goliath 'tracked mines'. Carrying 60kg of explosive, they had over 600m of cable for remote operation. Image
3/ The Germans used them at Normandy, however they were never a very successful capability. They were slow and too easy to target.

1/38. Today is the eighth day of the #BonnClimateConference (#SB58) and it saw the closing plenary of the Technical Dialogue of the #GST, discussions on the #SantiagoNetwork, the continuation of the #NCQG’s 6th Technical Expert Dialogue and the first stocktaking plenary. 🧵 Image
2/38. Today also saw a focus on #HumanRights with a number of side events and an action drawing attention to the key message that “there can be no #ClimateJustice without #HumanRights”.
3/38. Joining "No #ClimateJustice without #CivicSpace and #HumanRights: zooming in on the @UNFCCC process"* with @ciel_tweets, @amnesty and @350, we heard important messages on the need for safe #CivicSpace under the @UNFCCC so that we can make our #LossAndDamage demands heard!

1/30. Today is the seventh day of the #BonnClimateConference (#SB58) and it saw an intense second plenary on the adoption of the agenda, discussions on the #SantiagoNetwork and the start of the New Collective Quantified Goal’s 6th Technical Expert Dialogue on #ClimateFinance.🧵 Image
2/30. This morning kicked of with the event “Linking #LossAndDamage to Conflict Affected and Fragile Settings” held alongside the #BonnClimateConference (#SB58) with @FriEnt_news, @IDOS_research and @BROT_furdiewelt. Key messages included:
3/30. Steffen Bauer of @IDOS_research: “#LossAndDamage has become a reality even only at 1.1°C degree of heating. It puts lives and livelihoods at risk today…Every increment of warming that we can avoid makes a difference.” Image

1/5. “It's the first time that no one is ignoring #LossAndDamage or talking #LossAndDamage under #Adaptation, especially developing countries who want to avoid their historic responsibility.” @SabineMinninger of @BROT_furdiewelt #BonnClimateConference (#SB58).🧵 Image
2/5. “What is needed is a #LossAndDamage Fund under the @UNFCC, with needs based finance, a window for rapid onset events, a window for slow onset and importantly a window for small grants directly accessible to communities.”
3/5. “Developed countries are pointing heavily to existing funding arrangements. But this will not do. We need finance that is additional to Official Development Assistance (ODA), additional to #Mitigation, and additional to #Adaptation.”

Ce graphique laisse sans voix. Le record de température dans l'Atlantique Nord est en train d'être explosé.
Des records sont battus partout dans le monde depuis plusieurs semaines, avec une couverture médiatique absolument pas à la hauteur de la gravité de la situation. Image
Cette semaine c'était vraiment désespérant de constater qu'une fois de plus, une nouvelle qui aura des répercutions mondiales a été une fois plus sous traitée.
"Trop tard pour sauver la glace de mer en été en Arctique".…
Les températures en Inde sont également extrêmement dangereuses, alliant forte chaleur et surtout humidité. On le sait, la combinaison des deux peut-être mortelle.
Cette région du monde souffre, sans couverture médiatique adéquate. Trop loin ?

🧵Jem Bendell's Deep Adaptation framework offers a different perspective on climate change, suggesting that collapse is inevitable, and that we must focus on personal and community #adaptation. This framework is built upon the 4R model: Resilience, Relinquishment, Restoration, 👇 Image
and Reconciliation. Considering the concern of continuing industrialization and its impact on the environment, it is worth examining how the Deep Adaptation framework can guide us in determining the correct course of action.

Resilience:Strengthening Our Communities and Systems👇
#Resilience refers to the capacity of individuals, communities, and systems to withstand the shocks and stresses brought about by climate change and environmental collapse. The emphasis is on local resilience, including the development of self-sufficient food, water, and energy👇

Contrary to the many ‘Russian are stupid’ stereotypes that have developed throughout the war, they have demonstrated an ability in some areas to learn and adapt. This isn’t a statement of admiration. 1/25 🧵 Image
2/ It is however necessary to understand Russian #adaptation. In understanding it, we can ensure Ukrainian forces understand tactical and operational risks, and that they are best prepared for the offensives ahead.…
3/ Several areas of Russian adaptation during this war bear closer examination stand out: strategic adaptation; operational adaptation; and tactical adaptation. In this thread I will explore some areas of tactical adaptation.

Very proud of this team effort "A regional integrated assessment of the impacts of #climatechange and of the potential #adaptation avenues for #Quebec’s #forests" is now published

A (very long) thread. Buckle up!…

@cflscf @NRCan

First, I would like to acknowledge the work of all my colleagues including Jesus, Annie Claude, Yves, @mariehbrice, @DominicCyr, Louis, Daniel, @GauthierSylvie9 , Pierre, @Guillemette_L , Mathieu, Maryse, Tadeusz, Martin-Hugues, @ethiffault , @Tremblay_Jun and Stephen
Quebec’s #forests goes from northern hardwood with sugar #maple, beech, hemlock in the south, to pure boreal black #spruce forests up north. Natural #disturbances, go from single-tree windthrow or mortality in the south, to large stand-replacing #fires in the north.

1/6 Anyone still arguing if AI will take jobs or not, does not understand what's already here... and not to mention what is coming! 🤖💼🚀🔜 #AI #jobs #automation
The last time we saw something of this magnitude was during the Industrial Revolution when we invented machines to do work instead of horses, people, and manual labor. #IndustrialRevolution #technology #innovation
3/6 After the Industrial Revolution, people found other jobs to do, but the horses didn't... the horses were left behind. 🐴💔 #history #progress #change

Let's talk about #CognitiveBiases and #denial of reality as a cause of #CivilizationCollapse.

Civilization collapse is a phenomenon that occurs when a complex human society disintegrates and loses its cohesion, identity, and functionality. There are many possible causes of

civilization collapse, such as natural disasters, war, famine, disease, trade disruption, resource depletion, and social inequality. However, one factor that is often overlooked or underestimated is the role of human psychology in shaping our perception and response to these
challenges. In this thread, I will argue that cognitive biases and denial of reality are significant contributors to civilization #collapse because they #impair our ability to recognize, understand, and solve the problems that threaten our existence.

#Climatechange, combined with continued development and urbanization in some areas, has increased the risk of 𝐟𝐥𝐮𝐯𝐢𝐚𝐥 𝐟𝐥𝐨𝐨𝐝𝐢𝐧𝐠 in much of #Europe; and, despite extensive efforts to reduce the #risk, #flood impacts have increased in recent decades. Image
The climate crisis makes it increasingly urgent and necessary to put #adaptation strategies, as well as #mitigation, at the center of policies.
So what type of adaptation? How can we, in the face of different risks, identify the most effective #strategies?
A new study in @NatureClimate, co-authored by our Francesco Dottori and Lorenzo Alfieri, focuses on river flooding: simulating different types of interventions, they present a cost-benefit analysis to identify the best strategies for limiting land vulnerability to #flood #risk. Image

I think this is an interesting article, mainly because it discusses battlefield learning and #adaptation in #Ukraine. There are many skills needed by military institutions to be successful in combat. But fostering a learning culture is vital. 1/15…
2/ It is very likely, in the coming weeks and months, that both Ukrainian and Russian military forces will commence offensive campaigns in different areas of #Ukraine.
3/ As I wrote in a recent article exploring the coming campaigns: "Over winter both sides will have been preparing and shaping the environment for these offensives."…

The uncertainty inherent in military operations is part of the enduring nature of war. It is impossible for a military institution to anticipate everything. Therefore, a key virtue for military organizations in war must be adaptability. Adaptation in #Ukraine - an update 1/25 🧵
2/ As @DWBarno76 & @norabensahel have written, “even if militaries do imagine the next war accurately, the opening battles often unfold in spectacularly unexpected ways—with even well-trained armies often taken by surprise.”
3/ Belligerents constantly seek ways to outthink & out fight the other side. New technologies are introduced, new tactics developed & new organisations are introduced to exploit new ideas and technologies.

1/18.📜#COP27 OUTCOME: Members of the @LossandDamage Collaboration share their thoughts on the outcome of #COP27 on all #LossAndDamage elements.

🔗Read it here:…
2/18. 📢GOOD NEWS: #COP27 has established a #LossAndDamage fund! Following courageous and consistent championing for 30+ years by countries on the frontlines of the #ClimateCrisis. This is a historic moment that sets us on a pathway to #ClimateJustice.
3/18. During this time, climate-vulnerable countries were supported by the tireless efforts of #CivilSociety who have and will continue to demand that polluters #PayUp4LossAndDamage. We’ve put our heart and soul into this for decades now and we are not stopping anytime soon!

.#COP27 will end in hours/days🤔and the new cover text draft did reduce in length.
BUT what we cannot accept is the continued exclusion of priorities of vulnerable countries and the backsliding on the Glasgow Pact - this process must always be moving us forward!
CAN’s reaction⬇️
The #COP27 Cover Decision must include language on the equitable phase-out of ALL fossil fuels - coal, oil, AND gas.
A huge number of countries demanded this and the Egyptian Presidency must stop ignoring it.
Parties must avoid using qualifiers and loopholes such as “(un)abated”, “rationalize”, “inefficient”, “low carbon”, and “diversification of energy” which weaken commitments to the phasing-out of #FossilFuels and fossil fuel subsidies in the cover decision.

1/7 🧵
We’re well into week 2 of #COP27 and the draft cover text has finally dropped: a record-long (8.400 words) COP27 cover decision draft text 36 hours before the official end of COP27. This text lacks a clear structure and vision.

Initial CAN reaction below ⬇️
2/7 Lack of transparency, and progress in the different negotiations is leading to the undermining of a meaningful outcome. It is the responsibility of the Egyptian presidency to urgently start accelerating the work and show leadership for an ambitious cover decision.
3/7 The #COP27 cover decision must not backslide, but rather demonstrate progress from the Glasgow text on #1o5C and ALL fossil fuels.

1/13.📜NEW BLOG: A new blog by members of @LossandDamage explains where the phrase “mosaic of solutions” comes from and how it captures the need to mobilise action and support on all fronts (both inside & outside the @UNFCCC) to address #LossAndDamage.

🔗… Image
2/13. The phrase “mosaic of solutions” was first used by the #Maldives —one of the nations most vulnerable to the impacts of the #ClimateCrisis— in September to capture the need to mobilise action and support on all fronts to address #LossAndDamage that is happening now.
3/13. However, in the #LossAndDamage Finance negotiations at #COP27 the term has been used by developed countries to stress the need to focus on solutions outside the @UNFCCC such as the #GlobalShield Against Climate Risk.
