1/ Welcome to the bi-weekly #CleanTechEU thread!🧵👇

This week is a dive into the recently adopted #hydrogen delegated act on #additionality, what we asked for, why, and what made it to the final text & what got lost in compromises.🔎
2/ 1st things 1st: making #RenewableHydrogen means needing #RenewableElectricity ⚡️

When connecting an electrolyser to most of #EU’s electricity grids, the #H2 produced will have a very high #CarbonFootprint🏭👣 Image
3/ But, this can be fixed. Here are a few rules that can ensure that #hydrogen produced on the grid has a minimal climate impact:

1/4 Dec 5th is annually celebrated as World Soil Day to observe the importance of soil as a critical component of ecosystem health. It is also a day to advocate for regeneration of soils globally.

#worldsoilday #soil #soilcarbon #carbonmarkets #climateaction #netzero #climate
2/4 One of the biggest concerns is that by degrading soils, humanity is not only reducing crop productivity, but is degrading human and animal health, and particularly the soil-gut biome. This needs to be immediately reversed with better management.
@earthbanc is a promoter of reforestation, conservation, protection, and tree planting which restores soil organic carbon and biology, prevents erosion and restores local ecosystems.

“I stopped eating rice the day I learnt how much water it takes to harvest a kilogram of paddy.” Sunderlal Bahuguna thus spoke of #carbonfootprint decades before we even started using the term. He could see a looming #climatecrisis like no one else of his time did. 1/4 Image
Bahuguna was one of India’s early environmentalists. He walked 4,700 km from #Kashmir in the North to Kohima in the North-East to draw attention to the destruction of his Himalayan homeland by mega development projects. 2/4
He joined the #Chipko (tree-hugging) movement in the 1970s, started by women in #Uttarakhand to save the hills from loggers. Bahuguna drove the movement forward, till it spread to other parts of #India, including the south. 3/4 Image

Wichtiges Thema und richtige Schlussfolgerungen. Aber bitte, bitte, bitte nicht immer wieder die #TragedyOfTheCommons hervorkramen und Menschen als reine Egoisten framen. Ein 🧵zu #Kooperation, #Gemeingütern und #ClimateAction
Zuerst mal zur Idee der Gemeingüter als "Tragödie" von Garrit Hardin: Wie Felix Lobrecht in der Sendung richtig sagt, Hardin "war ein ziemlicher Rassist". Und das ist noch nett ausgedrückt (2/10).
Hardins Argument basiert außerdem auf einem überholten, neo-liberalen Welt- und Menschenbild, das kaum mit der Realität zu tun hat. Wie konstruiert 'homo eoconomicus' eigentlich ist, erklärt z.B. @KateRaworth in ihrem Buch #DoughnutEconomics (3/10)

The strikes are hurting unis, raising solidarity, but the pain is mostly felt by staff/students. Unis lose face (a bit – press coverage sucks), are inconvenienced, but it's abundantly clear *managers don’t care* about HE/HE people.

A 🧵
#UniCivilDisobedience #OneOfUsAllOfUs
Industrial action's impact on unis is watered as limited to specific union members who will/can afford to, ASOS/strike. But unless (and even if) union membership were greater, we’re limited by anti-union legislation and that we care so deeply about our work and students.
There was a great thread (that we can’t find) by @JamesBSumner on the varied personal/political reasons that folks don’t engage with unions locally/nationally. It’s nuanced, not either/or. We need more membership, coordination between unions AND to co-opt non-union peeps.

The Electric Mobility dilemma of Legacy vs New-Age

There is no doubt that Legacy Auto businesses might be able to leverage their scale, capital & experience to roll out EVs faster than EV startups..

But does that make them a better investment?


#Megatrends #investing

Historically, disruptive #innovation has always come from outside the traditional bounds of the industry.

From #Apple's iPhone📱 & #Amazon's AWS☁️ to
#SpaceX's Reusable Rockets🚀, the incumbents have more often than not, failed to innovate and/or spot the disruptors.


In case of Electric Mobility though, there's one critical factor that's keeping incumbents in the race: POLICY📜

Since EVs are now a necessity to reduce global #carbonfootprint & control the #ClimateCrisis, incumbents have no option but to cannibalize their products.

Indian Dietary Guidelines Entail Smallest Carbon Footprint—77% Less Than US: Study…

(📸: Rajesh Mehta/BCCL, Delhi)
Most countries around the world, including India, issue a set of dietary guidelines from time to time to help citizens follow a healthy lifestyle.

Over the past few decades, these dietary guidelines have evolved in line with the emerging scientific evidence with an aim to make people healthier while not compromising nature’s ability to sustain future generations.

#CarbonWatch — India’s first mobile app to calculate your #carbonfootprint. Are you looking forward to using it?

How does it work? Read here:
#CarbonWatch is India’s first mobile application to help users understand their individual #carbonfootprint. It takes in details like water consumption, energy use, waste segregation, and transport to tell you the extent of your #carbonemissions.
The application can be used by anyone across the country, but the data offered up by the residents of #Chandigarh will be used to compile a study assessing consumption.

Carbon capture: is it worth pursuing?

Get the basics in this thread 👇

#cleanenergy #carbonneutral #carbonfootprint #carboncapture #CO2

The global energy demand is growing and so are the associated emissions.

In order to meet goals of Paris agreement, cutting greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) are needed.

Current CO2 concentration in atmosphere: 410 ppm
Target to meet 1.5 deg rise: 350 ppm
2/Carbon Capture
Adopting low carbon and renewable sources of energy along cannot help reach target emissions .

Carbon (CO2) capture at-scale is a bridge as the energy mix shifts.

* CO2 can removed from flue / burnt gases
* Pulling from ambient air, direct air capture

The world is causing #GlobalWarming through excessive #CO2 #emissions: The #CarbonFootprint, which equals CF per person multiplied by #population, of the current (2016) world population of 7.5 billion uses the carbon sequestration capacity of 2.4 Earths. Image
The maximum #sustainable (“#CarbonNeutral”) #population at our current CF per person is only 3.1 billion. The maximum that would give everyone the current #QualityOfLife in the US, as measured by the UN’s #HumanDevelopmentIndex, is only 2 billion. Image
Since the start of CF tracking (1961), 64% of our #growth in CF has been caused by #population growth and only 36% by growth in personal #emissions (CF per person). Image

Things I am over - hypocrisy and inconsistency

1) If peaceful #protest on the steps of government buildings is a right, than it also is on a football field #TakeAKnee, in a park, etc

#Thread #equity #rant (1/8)
2) If we ban #guns from some buildings in the interest of security, that means for all people - not just those that aren't white

3) If #BlueLivesMatter, do not risk our brave protectors’ health by protesting near them without #masks

#MichiganProtest (2/8)
4) If you are not wearing #facemasks given your personal #liberty, than why do women not get extended the same for #Reproductiverights

5) If all life is sacred, than why would we sacrifice 2-3% of our population by #ReopenAmerica too quickly?
