A quick thread on #Algeria's slow embrace of renewable energy investment.

In the midst of the oil boom in the mid-2000s, #Algeria was making a LOT of money.

Sonatrach's 2008 revenue was US$76 billion.

US$76 billion...

There was a lot of pressure on #Algeria to create a sovereign wealth fund (SWF.)

Everyone was doing it. Saudi. Libya. UAE. Etc.

You could take your oil and gas receipts, invest them in diversified assets, and double, triple, quadruple their value!

Oscar Niemeyer, l’Algérie et l’architecture de la Révolution ImageImageImageImage
1) Empêché de travailler suite au coup d’Etat militaire au Brésil, Oscar Niemeyer (communiste) s’exile en Europe en 1967, puis à l’invitation du président Houari #Boumediene, s’installe à #Alger en 1969 où il passera 6 ans de sa vie jusqu’en 1975. ImageImage

#Assad's regime, its supporters & a plethora of uninformed commentators are driving a call for punitive sanctions on the regime to be removed to facilitate aid delivery to #Syria.

This is absolute nonsense.

It has no basis in facts.

It's nothing but a regime talking point.
Let’s start with some facts:

- 90% of the multi-billion dollar aid effort that goes through #Damascus comes from the U.S, U.K, E.U. & #Canada -- who also happen to be the x4 sanctioning entities.

In all cases, humanitarian waivers are in place to ensure the free flow of aid.
The West has consistently funded & backed the free-flow of aid across all of #Syria & its *our* money that's paid for it.

It’s #Assad's regime that has systematically weaponized aid since 2011 -- diverting it away from opposition communities as part of its siege & starve agenda.

The admin of Bab al-Hawa crossing -- the sole route open for UN aid to NW #Syria -- confirms that 3 days in, zero aid has arrived from the international community.

#Assad's regime is getting aid from the @UN + #Russia, #Egypt, #Algeria, #UAE, #Saudi, #Tunisia, #Iraq & #Iran. Image
@UN In NW #Syria, financial donations are coming in from abroad, but nothing in terms of real-world assistance.

They need manpower, fuel, equipment, food, shelter etc.

#Egypt managed to get a team of rescue specialists in to aid @SyriaCivilDefe, but it's unclear how they got there. Image
@UN @SyriaCivilDefe The earthquake + @UN inaction/risk aversion has achieved what #Assad's regime never managed:

-- NW #Syria is now fully under siege; from the south (regime areas) & the north (via disaster-hit #Turkey).

Only concerted international action will see this siege ended.

Northwestern #Syria#Idlib & #Aleppo in particular — have suffered 12yrs of brutal conflict. More than 65% of the basic infrastructure of the area is destroyed or heavily damaged.

Tonight’s earthquake couldn’t have hit a more vulnerable region.

An absolute disaster.
Utterly horrific reports coming from all across NW #Syria - every town I’ve heard from has dozens of buildings flattened. People stuck under the rubble.

Any many, many casualties — including children.

@SyriaCivilDefe will be heroes tonight, working amid heavy rain & sleet.
I’ve heard from x3 hospitals in #Idlib & N. #Aleppo — all are full, every bed taken by emergency cases following tonight’s earthquake.

As rescuers & civilians seek to extract people & belongings from rubble, there’s mass panic about aftershocks.

@SyriaCivilDefe stretched thin.

🧵 With New Year approaching, I thought I'd share some of my favourite moments and photos from my 2022 archaeological travels, which have seen me travel to Egypt, Turkey, Hadrian's Wall and Algeria.

Sailing on Lake Nasser in Egypt between Aswan and Abu Simbel and visiting the temples that used to lie on the banks of the Nile but were moved when the Aswan High Dam flooded the region in the 1960s.

Visiting the relocated Wadi es-Sebua temple with its beautiful avenue of sphinxes. The temple was built during the reign of Ramesses II and was dedicated to the deified pharaoh, Amun-Ra, and Ra-Harakhty.

Between 1948-1972 almost a million Jews indigenous to the Middle East were expelled or forced out of their homes by racist antisemitic Arab rulers. Even prior to 48, Jews faced horrific persecution. To this day no reparations have been made. This is the story of the Jews of MENA.

Per capire i tempi del #Moroccogate e quali sono i Paesi coinvolti, dobbiamo ripercorrere le cronache degli ultimi mesi alla ricerca degli annunci con i quali i vari Stati facevano inattese retromarce sui dossier caldi come il #SaharaOccidentale. 1/n…
La #Germania, ad esempio, è passata in pochi mesi dal non avere rapporti con il #Marocco all’accettazione di fondo nientemeno del piano di annessione di Rabat che contraddice decenni di politica comune della #UE sullo spinoso argomento. 2/n
Ovviamente è un lavoro un po’ lungo e non lo farò tutto in questo thread. La sola #Spagna, la cui posizione sulla ex-colonia è ovviamente cruciale, va studiata con una certa calma. 3/n

Nel fronte #Polisario, rappresentante del popolo #saharawi le cui terre sono invase e occupate dal #Marocco dal 1975, c’è uno scontro politico reso urgente dal fallimento delle scelte portate avanti sinora per sciogliere il nodo del ritorno alle proprie terre. 1/n
Molti ritengono l’attuale leadership troppo legata all’#Algeria, che ospita la maggioranza di questo popolo esule e il suo governo in esilio. Pesa l’inversione a U di molti Paesi #UE sul tema del #SaharaOccidentale, azione camaleontica sospinta dalle mazzette del #Moroccogate 2/n

Time for a🧵on the EU's #CBAM (Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism). Today, EU institutions reached an agreement on the CBAM. It will enter into force on 1 October 2023. What does this mean for #Africa?…
1) What is the logic behind the CBAM? The EU introduced ambitious decarbonization measures for its industry=> risk of carbon leakage (companies shifting production to more tolerant jurisdictions) => industrial exodus from EU with major socio-economic impact & no climate impact.
But what does the evidence say about this assumption? The European Commission's own assessment of the impact of the CBAM is not conclusive but theorizes that more ambition may result in more carbon leakage.…
