@COP25CL @UN @UNFCCC @thecliniccl @FESChile Llevan 24 horas de alargue y las críticas a la gestión de @CarolaSchmidtZ como presidenta de la COP25, hoy se largaron con todo!

At #COP25Madrid rich countries are literally pouring oil on to the climate fire. They have known about the urgency to act, they know the science & that the clock is ticking on 1.5c with less than a decade to act. They refused to act in the previous decade & now they are demanding
thaf they can use discredited carbon markets to shift the burden to the global South. They are calling for solutions that will displace food production in the poorest countries so they can offset their failure to act.
Because they want to lock in even more fossil fuel extraction. Their target is an expansion of fossil fuels by 150% beyond what is compatible for 1.5c. The majority of that expansion is in rich countries like the USA & Canada.

URGENT: INTERNATIONAL STRIKE THIS FRIDAY, DECEMBER 13TH, IN RESPONSE TO COP25 EVENTS

IMPORTANT THREAD: /1

Please read all of it!
On Wednesday, December 11th, over 300 climate activists, including many young climate strikers from around the world, were kicked out of COP25 in Madrid after protesting for women’s and indigenous people’s rights and calling for ambitious actions from rich countries. /2
The voices of millions of people are silenced at the climate change conference in Madrid. While civil society was kicked out from the COP25, fossil fuel lobbyists remained inside. This cannot be tolerated! /3

Hola, como sabeis el otro día en mi articulo expuse un poco de como se financia Greenpeace. Lo hace sobretodo a través de donaciones de Fundaciones.

Reconozco que no tengo ni idea sobre dichas fundaciones, solo se que mueven ingentes cantidades de dinero...así que hilo va.
@andrei_kononov @desamparadosb @janayaish @chirigotero74 @LaVozDeEuropa @eleritzo @Guayomedo @GoOutTheBox1 @_humanIam_ @kimikante El tema es que una persona @soymikos a la que Greenpeace sigue me dijo que no se fiaba de los datos que yo estaba aportando...
@andrei_kononov @desamparadosb @janayaish @chirigotero74 @LaVozDeEuropa @eleritzo @Guayomedo @GoOutTheBox1 @_humanIam_ @kimikante @soymikos No fiarse de lo primero que lee uno es una aptitud muy acertada y obviamente yo la comparto.

El caso es que se iba por los cerros de Úbeda y me preguntaba a mi quien había fundado Greepeace.

¡Como si me importase a mi eso! Sigamos...

It's time to #UniteBehindTheScience!

@GretaThunberg and @Luisamneubauer are hosting a panel at #COP25 to shine a spotlight on the latest #climate science.

So let's get scientific! Here's the latest from the world's top scientists 👉
“Mine and @Luisamneubauer’s voice have been heard many times, but we also need to listen to the scientists and the experts,” @GretaThunberg, kicking off a science panel at #COP25.
"The sad side of the story is that people seem to have forgotten that talking won't solve the problem: we need real action," @Luisamneubauer #COP25

This quote, from @jrockstrom, is a vast understatement of the situation we’re currently in.

The world has now wasted a quarter-century on the formal UN negotiating process on climate.

That is not only a disappointment, it is a death sentence.

@jrockstrom If we do not recognize this process as fundamentally flawed in its current state, we cannot imagine&demand the necessary changes that could bring about emissions reductions we need in the time we have left.

#COP25 must be the last business-as-usual COP.

thecorrespondent.com/161/the-great-…
@jrockstrom The UN negotiating process is useful for some things, but the UN climate process has been captured by the fossil fuel industry and high-emitting countries who have no intention of radical change.

That change will only come via outside pressure.

This is a life & death situation.

🌎The Week In Climate 2nd -8th Dec🌍

From #COP25Madrid to new climate forecasting models being analysed, as well as lots in the realm of politics, we have a lot of ground to cover.

Let's start with ...
🏢THE SOCIETY🏡

1 - @GretaThunberg & other activists have had an overwhelming presence at #COP25Madrid. Also, African countries - lowest historical emissions, but most vulnerable to climate change - have sent 4 of the largest 10 delegations

Pretty much had it with the climatistas at #COP25 dogmatically insisting on sticking to a strategy that is plainly failing. For those of us who care about solving #climate within meaningful timescales we must be rigorously evidence-based and intellectually honest.
I have very little patience for renewables advocates telling me that nuclear energy is too slow and expensive when the evidence does not support that.
It’s a dismissive excuse for making aesthetic technology choices rather than engage in hard choices. This leaves me with the impression that they are not taking seriously the lack of progress to date, nor the major challenges ahead in decarbonising fuels & heat. #COP25Madrid

#COP25Madrid

El otro día hice un hilo sobre algunos aspectos no técnicos sobre el Cambio Climático, puede servir como introducción.



Pero hoy quería hacer un homenaje a "los negacionistas", para defenderlos de la catarata de estupideces que les endosan.
Viniendo de un sector (ahora los llaman expertos) en el que físicos, geólogos, biólogos e ingenieros cooperábamos para hacer estudios marinos y medioambientales, el mismísimo concepto de cambio climático nos producía risa y/o aburrimiento. Otros tiempos (a caballo entre siglos).
Cuando dejé el campo y empecé a mirar el tema tropecé con tres personas únicas que sintonizaban con mi entonces holística visión, salvo que ellos ya llevaban años analizándolo en profundidad, eran Antón Uriarte (QEPD), @Luis_I_Gomez, y @loiscareaga.

1/3 Another key topic at the #COP25 is the push for #NatureBasedSolutions. These are projects to protect or restore natural ecosystems, which in itself is good. The issue is that most often these projects are financed by offset mechanisms and foster natural capital approaches
2/3 = putting a price on some parts of nature and trading them. Even though it has been shown that it is not possible to comprehensively measure, let alone meaningfully value biodiversity and ecosystems. greenfinanceobservatory.org/2019/05/23/sec…
3/3 As long as #NatureBasedSolutions are financed by offset mechanisms and foster natural capital, they should not be considered part of the solution. #COP25Madrid #NatureNow #biodiversity2020

👇THREAD on @ScottMorrisonMP and #climate

no doubt the prime minister will have noticed the shift in the public mood, and the media, around climate change.

“climate and the environment” is literally top of mind.

afr.com/politics/feder…
morrison can implore us not to discuss climate change while the country is on fire, but as the fire chiefs have tried to tell him, we have months of fires ahead of us — this is the new normal.

unless australia gets a lucky break, this fire season is morrison’s "port arthur".
if @ScottMorrisonMP seeks to be a great PM, he needs to rapidly pivot to real #climate leadership — meaningful words and meaningful deeds.

to be meaningful:
