.@D_LittleproudMP🤥 lied on @InsidersABC this morning.

#CCS has *not* been implemented on a coal power station near him.

last gov't committed $35m to a trial that *might* capture up to 2% of a coal power station's emissions from ~2024 and truck it 100km to injection wells.
this is classic #CCS spin… politicians and industry talk about proposed trials as if they are operational major projects.

some great research @jommy_tee dug up:

the last gov't gave the project $5m in 2021:…

‼️ NEW ‼️

Analysis from @ciel_tweets & @boell_stiftung: "#IPCC Unsummarized: Unmasking Clear Warnings on Overshoot, Techno-fixes, and the Urgency of Climate Justice" ➡️…

Key takeaways in this thread 🧵👇
Early this month, the @IPCC_CH published the Contributions of Working Group III to the Sixth Assessment Report.

The subject? Mitigation of #ClimateChange.

#IPCC #ClimateReport #ActOnClimate
Like previous #IPCC Reports, this one demonstrates:
🚩#ClimateChange is a present emergency
🚩Each increment of warming accelerates the scale & severity of the crisis
🚩Phasing out ALL #FossilFuels is the quickest & most effective way to end #ClimateChaos.…

Der Nirvana-Fehlschluss, das #Pareto-Prinzip, die #Impfgegner, Wohnwagen, GVOs - und was das alles mit der #Klimakrise zu tun hat.
Oder: Warum eine unvollkommene Lösung meist besser ist als gar keine Lösung.
Ein Thread.🧵
#Impfgegner behaupten, das eine Impfung nicht zu 100% gegen #COVID_19 schützt.
Diese Aussage an sich ist völlig korrekt - aber das hat ja auch niemand behauptet, oder?
Die Tatsache, das etwas nicht zu 100 % effektiv ist, bedeutet NICHT, dass wir es nicht dennoch tun sollten!
Sicherheitsgurte, Helme, Kondome, Fallschirme: alles weitere Beispiele für Dinge, die keinen 100%-igen Schutz bieten (die Liste ließe sich verm. beliebig verlängern).
Aber dennoch stellt niemand ernsthaft deren Benutzung in Frage.

Estamos siendo testigos cómo una voracidad financiera sin límites está terminando con los testimonios arquitectónicos de #CCS En Las Mercedes se patentiza esa inicua acción con total irrespeto por el patrimonio cultural: @darwingonzalezp @luisaguilarj @concejo_baruta ⤵️
Susan Sontag en «Bajo el signo de Saturno. Ensayo sobre Walter Benjamin» (1980) observaba que «La modernidad es un mundo cuyo pasado se ha vuelto caduco y cuyo presente produce antigüedades instantáneas.». Las autoridades creen que los edificios que dejan demoler son caducos.⤵️
Pero resulta que esos edificios, además de encontrarse tutelados por ley, constituyen el patrimonio cultural de la ciudad. ¿Cuáles son esos valores? Hablemos un poco de la historia de Las Mercedes y sus expresiones arquitectónicas.⤵️

Guess they're talking about Canada & @liberal_party re #BayduNord #TMX #LNGCanada
#oldgrowrh #clearcut 👇
"Ongoing investments in fossil fuel infrastructure & clearing large swaths of forest for agriculture undermine the massive curbs in emissions needed to meet Paris goal"
Such cuts would be hard to achieve without without drastic, economy-wide measures, the panel acknowledged. It’s more likely that the world will pass 1.5C

#JustinTrudeau never had any INTENTION of meeting 2C much less 1.5C target
Many experts say #CCS is UNFEASIBLE with current technologies, & even if it could be done it would be far costlier than preventing the emissions in the first place."

They need to elaborate what they mean by costlier @MarkJCarney @s_guilbeault

Der letzte #IPCC-Bericht, der uns noch aus der Krise führen kann, ist (in der Langfassung von fast 3000 Seiten, aber auch in der verkürzten Form für Entscheider von 63 Seiten) eine Zumutung, die viele Politiker nicht verstehen und die ein größeres Publikum nicht erreichen wird.
Das "Politikversagen" ist selbstproduziert, dürfen die Wissenschaftler und Wissenschaftlerinnen hernach nicht beklagen. Mein Appell (ausser der ernst gemeinte @maithi_nk!) wäre eine Debatte (durchaus in Deutsch!) zu zwei Fragen.
Wie muss jetzt, nach dem Bericht und in der realen Lage, die Mitigation-Strategie, wie die Adaptation-Strategie angepasst (verbessert) werden?

[maxi thread] Prezzi fantastici e come evitarli: cosa sta succedendo ai prezzi dell’#energia? Il governo si sta muovendo nella direzione giusta? Spoiler: no. Il governo sta facendo troppo a favore di troppi troppo tardi. Vediamo perché e cosa bisognerebbe fare 1/n
Intanto, bisogna capire che l’incredibile fiammata dei prezzi delle commodity energetiche ha una componente strutturale. Il perché e il percome ve lo spiega qui Alberto Clò (@rivenergia)… (notare la data) 2/n

Getting the whole world to #netzero #GHGs rapidly is going to be incredibly difficult. But given how strong and organized the #climateopposition is, we must distinguish #thesignalfromthenoise on which pathways are the most likely to succeed. A 🧵 on how I think about this 1/14
2/ First, we cannot rely on social and lifestyle change governed by new paradigms like degrowth to deliver in time for this #climatedecade. But if the movement delivers small reductions in energy or meat consumption, we need it…
3/ #Technologyandpolicy (and politics) need to do the heavy lifting. Can they deliver? Yes, but to effectively channel our efforts and fight off the opposition, we need to distinguish between main courses, side dishes and poison pills (frequently buried in the side dishes)

We have published an English summary of our hydrogen report:…
Key messages:
Hydrogen is necessary for #climateneutrality, but needs to be used in an efficient manner. Only #greenhydrogen produced from #renewable power can be produced sustainably.
Blue hydrogen is currently discussed as a bridging technology. In our opinion, it is not sustainable due to residual GHG emissions, insufficient short-term #CCS capacity and the risk of #fossil infrastructure lock-in. Therefore, it should not receive public subsidies.
Stringent certification is necessary to minimize the environmental footprint and social issues of hydrogen. This is both true for imports and European production.
An additionality criterion for renewables can ensure that green hydrogen does indeed reduce carbon emissions.

So Australia’s official pavilion at #COP26 is sponsored by a gas company (Santos) and its graphics use a font that is almost identical to News Corp’s logo. The graphics use the phrase “the Australian way”, which Morrison only started using last week. Coincidence? Yeah nah
And notice the suited heavy, ominous by his presence behind @JoDodds6
Actually I’m surprised it doesn’t have “the Plan” plastered everywhere!

The Australien Government has made an ad about Carbon Capture and Storage, and it’s surprisingly honest and informative. #CCS
This one’s part of our Climate Shitfuckery series in which we picking off each of our government’s (and many governments’) solutions for taking as little serious action as possible on the climate crisis.
We started with the Kyoto Carryover Credits; then EV policy (FFS); then the infiltration of our science agencies. And in this HGA we look at one of the key pillars in our Government’s “Technology Investment Roadmap” to reach Net Zero: Carbon Capture and Storage aka CCS

Es braucht eine #Bauwende, sagen @Architects4F. Dazu gehört: Weniger bauen & auch: anders bauen. Künftig müssen mehr ökologische Baustoffe eingesetzt werden, um emissionsintensive mineralische Baustoffe zu ersetzen. Was steht dazu in den Bundestagswahlprogrammen der Parteien?
Kontext: Der Gebäudesektor spielt mit einem Endenergieverbrauch von 40% eine wichtige Rolle für das Erreichen der Klimaziele. Es muss in den nächsten Jahren vieles passieren: Steigerung der energetischen Sanierungsrate, Reduktion des Wärmebedarfs im Bestand, neue Heiztechnologien
Während der Fokus hier auf energetischen Aspekten liegt, blieb ein anderer Aspekt bisher oft außen vor: sog. graue Emissionen von Gebäuden, die etwa während der Konstruktion oder der Herstellung der Baustoffe entstehen.

We commissioned @LCPEnergy to look at a cost-effective pathway to decarbonise electricity in GB ⚡️

The report proposes five steps which could save £48bn by 2050 and save an additional 7.5mtCO2 by 2035.

See the full report, published today, here:…

The first step is to ‘go big on offshore wind’ 💚

This will bring a system cost benefit of £7.3bn between 2021 and 2050 due to the reduced CapEx costs of #offshorewind compared to nuclear.

Read more:…

Step two is additional low-carbon thermal generation in the form of gas with #CCS and #hydrogen to complement the high levels of #renewables.

This will provide firm capacity and a system cost benefit of £7.5bn.

Viel heiße Luft und ein paar wirklich gefährliche Ideen - so könnte man das #Wahlprogramm der #CDU zusammenfassen. Für alle, die wissen wollen, was genau drin steht und warum die #Union die größte Gefahr fürs Klima ist - ein Thread. 👇 #BTW21
Die Union bemüht sich noch nichtmal um Greenwashing: Statt Regeln für #Klimaschutz gibt’s gleich ganz vorne ein "Entfesselungspaket für die Wirtschaft" - dabei wäre die Bevölkerung längst für klare Regeln an Bord
So geht eiliger Klimaschutz bei der #CDUCSU: Für Klimaschutz möchte sich die Union dann erst ab nächstem Jahr dazu Gedanken machen, wie sie die bereits beschlossenen Sektorziele auch umsetzen können. 🤨 ⏰

[1/9] Ahead of #COP26, these @royalsociety policy briefs lay out 12 science & technology areas key for enabling #netzero.
Inadvertently the briefs also lay out clear lack of representation in #STEM and #academia
Reduced inequalities is part of netzero solution #SDG10
✅120+ authors from 30+ countries were included in these briefs, plus another ~40 reviewers. Impressive. ❌Less impressive is the representation within the list of contributors:
🌍the authors are predominantly from the global north
♀️ <25% of the authors are women
[3/9] In fact, 3 out of the 12 briefings are all-male authors (briefing 3: #lowcarbon heating & cooling, 5: #CCS, 12: #ClimateAction).
2 of these (briefings 3 & 5) have all-male reviewers, also.
⁉️Where are the incredible women working in these topics? Their absence is visible.

"So, when we look at that $100 trillion opportunity [], #biotech is pervasive... it’s everywhere & growing. Few industry sectors are not going become dependent on biotec's creations. In the last 10 yrs years, every corp. needed to hire #data #scientists."…
"Since the early 1990s, when we first invented protein #engineering & the mechanisms to edit the #genome, we’ve been increasingly capable of altering life's instruction code — not just in our own bodies, but truly, in all life forms on the #planet."

"literally, all of this biomass,[] is now subject to human design. We can study its instruction code, mimic it, transplant it elsewhere, or edit it directly. Our planetary impact is so great that we humans decide, intentionally or blindly, which species thrive & which go extinct"

Meine Bewertung des nächsten Programmentwurfs für die Bundestagswahl: Hier gehe ich die Vorschläge der @Die_Gruenen zu #Energie und #Klimaschutz durch. Ein Thread (1/x): ⬇️
Zum Einstieg: #Klimaschutz ist das erste und eines der bestimmenden Themen des Programmentwurfs. Das 1,5 Grad-Ziel ist der Maßstab, für @Die_Gruenen zählt „jedes Zehntelgrad“. Gut! Trotzdem ein Spoiler: Dafür fehlen einige wichtige Maßnahmen, dazu später mehr. (2/x)
Deutlich wird, dass #Klimaschutz ein Leitmotiv für viele Politikfelder ist. Die wichtigsten Beispiele: #Lieferkettengesetz, Handelsverträge, Berichtspflichten von Unternehmen, Klimaaußen- und Finanzpolitik, der Vorschlag einer "#CO2-Bremse" für alle Gesetze. (3/x)

Auch @dieLinke hat den Entwurf für ihr Wahlprogramm veröffentlicht. Was steht zu #Klimaschutz und #Energie drin? Und wie ist das zu bewerten? Ein Thread (1/x): ⬇️
Zunächst: Tolle Ziele, zum Beispiel #Klimaneutralität bis 2035. Für alle wichtigen Bereiche werden konkrete Maßnahmen beschrieben. Erkennbar wird, dass @dieLinke die Nähe zur #Klimabewegung sucht. Gut! (2/x)
Bestimmendes Thema ist #Gerechtigkeit. Wer zahlt für den Ausbau #Erneuerbarer? Für die energetische Sanierung von #Gebäuden? Den Aus- und Umbau von #Netzen? Hier möchte @dieLinke Bürger*innen entlasten. Der Staat spielt eine starke Rolle und muss häufig einspringen. (3/x)

This is a learning thread.

A lesson in #language, "purpose" & #NewPower.

From inception, #NetZero was devised as the language to garner uptake/demand from citizenry while simultaneously building a framework to propel #CarbonMarkets, #CCS technology, #NETs, & #nuclear.

📢 Curious about #carbonremoval?
Read my new report @GlobalCCS: "Carbon Removal with #CCS technologies".

@EUCarbonCapture @Bellona_EU
@cleanaircatf @NEP_Brussels

#carboncapture is a unique set of tech because it has a dual role in addressing #climatechange. It can help to reduce emissions from point sources, AND it can remove CO2 from the atmosphere.

Let that sink in.
There are not many solutions out there that do both.

2/10 Image
All #carbonremoval approaches (natural or technological) have their advantages and challenges/limitations, my overview looks into #BECCS and #DACCS.
