Sinceramente, me ha chocado tanto esta noticia y que DEIA le dé ese olor a incienso con tan angelical aureola de progreso a bombo y platillo que me he permitido traducir el artículo de Julia Steiberger @JKSteinberger "Los chicos no están bien"
Abro hilo🧵
1 Los chicos no están bien Julia Seteinberger
Hoy fui a dar una charla sobre el clima en mi antigua escuela secundaria en Ginebra, y me dieron una clase magistral sobre nuestros fallos. Esta es la historia de un día que me sacudió:
2 He dado charlas climáticas en escuelas secundarias antes. En 2019, los primeros huelguistas climáticos de Ginebra me invitaron a recorrer las escuelas secundarias la mañana de su primera huelga. Fui, con un amigo, corriendo en nuestras bicicletas de escuela a escuela a escuela

Good morning, friends! It might be snowing, but now reason we cannot deep dive into the history of policing. Join me at 9:30am, cst.

What event would you argue single-handedly changed policing as we know it today?

What would you add to the list? #CRJ201 #HistoryofPolicing

1/. “For two weeks, Scotland has become the centre of the world. Not just a place where we can meet one another, but a place where we can truly recognise one another.” Mindahi Bastida, Mexico

A delegation of 140 indigenous people have come to #Cop26 with a message. #COP26Glasgow
2/. “We came here to #COP26 because we knew world leaders would be here. But these world leaders are not listening to our leaders; to the indigenous leaders”

Uboye Gaba from Mexico (& his 1 year old son, Mene)
#COP26Glasgow @MingaIndigena #IndigenousPeoplesDay #IndigenousPeoples

Bon 🙃

Comme des grognons viennent en masse à propos des émissions cumulées, on va parler de l'affirmation suivante : « Ce qui compte, c'est aujourd'hui, pas le passé, ça ne nous sert à rien pour préparer le futur ! »

C'est beau, mais totalement inaudible à l'internationale.
⏰ On ne va pas trop rentrer dans le détail, mais le "Réchauffement" Climatique n'est pas la résultante des émissions de l'instant T, il est la conséquence d'un cumul d'émissions.

Sur la première infographie, on parle de CO2 qui a une durée de vie plutôt "longue" ⤵️
Et c'est pertinent pour lui, mais ça ne l'aurait pas forcément été si on faisait un "cumul des émissions de CH4 depuis 200 ans" comme le CH4 a une durée de vie de 8 ans, on peut vite voir la limite de ces infographies, ça n'enlève rien leurs utilités ⤵️

It’s out! 🎊
My new @ecfr paper on how #Europe can ride the #climate momentum in the #Gulf deploying its #GreenDeal to meet #NetZero & #geopolitical objectives in the region ➡️ bit.ly/2XOK8bG
Read b4 #COP26 #COP26Glasgow
Few take-aways 1/ Image
Good that #SaudiArabia & #UAE have pledged #NetZero but #GCC total domestic emissions are only 2.4% of world’s. The #EU needs to focus on the emissions they export, mostly to #China, I argue how: bit.ly/2XOK8bG 2/
As shown by the #SaudiGreenInitiative & #MiddleEastGreenInitiative + #UAE willingness to host #COP 28, the #GCC leaders now see a political value in embracing the #climate agenda. This paper described what each #GCC country is actually *doing* about it: bit.ly/2XOK8bG 3/

1/. QUESTION: Would you buy grapes that were individually wrapped in plastic?
#COP26Glasgow #cop26plastics #COP26 #ClimateEmergency #ClimateAction #plasticpollution #ClimateJustice #FridaysForFuture
2/. “Every single grape wrapped in plastic! What the actual f***!”

You would probably be outraged like my friend Diane was! #COP26Glasgow #COP26 #FridaysForFuture #ClimateAction #ClimateEmergency #plasticfree
3/. CONFESSION

The individually wrapped grapes in the video aren’t real

But the passion fruit were

& so is this footage from Sierra Leone

& so was Diane’s reaction

& so too was the outrage you perhaps felt

It’s time to channel the outrage into action

Live-tweeting of the Supreme Court hearing in A Local Authority v JB (by his Litigation Friend, the Official Solicitor) (AP) coming up...

#COP #courtofprotection #capacity #capacitytohavesexualrelations
The Official Solicitor appeals the decision given by the Court of Appeal in this case about the capacity to decide whether or not to have sexual relations. See supremecourt.uk/cases/uksc-202…
Counsel for the OS highlighting inquisitorial nature of the Court of Protection. Acknowledges that P and P's partner's consent to sexual relations is fundamental. Both should have the relevant capacity to provide consent. Non-consensual sex is of course wrong.

Wow!

The sea ablaze for 8 hours in the Gulf of Mexico after a pipeline ruptured.
n 1944, Winston Churchill described Nazi atrocities as "a crime without a name"

Soon after, the term 'genocide' was coined

Is it time to recognise ‘ecocide’ as an int’l crime?

And time for all of us to start getting active to protect our fragile planet?
“Lost somewhere between immensity & eternity is our tiny planetary home

There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world

This pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known.”

On behalf of KAC, the #GSTHR's @GerryStimson gave evidence to the UK @AppgVaping's inquiry into the #FCTC in Feb - see yday's Daily Express featuring @MarkPawsey MP:

express.co.uk/news/uk/142803…

A summary of Prof. Stimson's points can be found here and ⬇️:

kachange.eu/uk-appg-vaping…
Professor Stimson:
"The UK is a world leader in #tobaccoharmreduction – expertise, governmental and institutional support, the data, and evidence that access to safer #nicotine products speeds up the switch away from #smoking."

kachange.eu/uk-appg-vaping…
Professor Stimson:
"The UK’s experience with #THR is being systematically ignored or worse, derided behind the scenes by the
@WHO and #FCTC process, instead of being highlighted as a best practice. Why is this?"

#COP justice veterans: we've never seen such failure before. 🚨⚰️💔

@BBCNews: agreement through compromise wins the day. 🎉👍😎

bbc.com/news/science-e…
"Black people from the global South heartbroken that rich countries are literally signing their death warrants by the lack of action at the...talks. This bloody white supremacy, colonialism & imperialism is the toxic poison that says our lives don’t matter"
"Even according to its own very weak agenda, #COP25 has failed

Failed to reflect far greater ambition, failed to formalise and increase loss and damage funding..."

Não importam Emmanuel Macron nem interesses políticos ocasionais de outros países. Importa a aceleração da #degradação #ambiental na #Amazônia em um governo cuja postura tem sido hostil para com o #ambiente desde seu início. Apontarei exemplos dessa hostilidade
Defender o #ambiente é uma das missões constitucionais e legais do #MinistérioPúblico #MP, instituição a que pertenço. A Constituição define a Floresta Amazônica brasileira como patrimônio nacional (art. 225, § 4.º). Ela precisa ser defendida e nenhum governo pode dispor dela
