1. I’m fascinated by the beauty of nature and enjoy learning more every day. Look for instance at these mushrooms realising millions of microscopic spores to propagate.

🧵 A thread about the beauty of planet earth, our only home.

2. That’s right, it’s our only home. That means we have to be extra careful, we don’t have a spare.

When it heats up, or loses it’s complex ecosystems, we will all be in trouble.

NASA took this photo of the dark side of the moon from 1 million miles away.

Today is #Halfearthday2021, a plan to protect 50% of the earth, to stop #biodiversity loss & prevent #climate change. Wow, a plan to #restore the planet: that's hopeful!? Unfortunately, not. There is good science showing this is the wrong direction... 🧵 (1/5) #COP26 #COP15
2/5. Every funder should know that if a Half Earth proposal lands on their desk, there will be social risks. Despite the cosy rhetoric, Fortress Conservation leads to #humanrights abuses. Protecting 50% of the globe could affect >1 billion ppl, per Schleicher et al., 2019
3/5. Ecologists, none the wiser, might consider this a price worth paying if species are protected from #extinction. It's a mistake made by Kim Stanley Robinson. The great myth is that people are bad for biodiversity, as shown by Ellis et al., 2021 👇

We've now talked to over 100 #climate #startup #founders for @enduring_planet and we're seeing a pattern. A 🧵
(1) First and foremost, there is incredible innovation happening in the space. The pace at which new #climatetech is entering the market and getting validation is staggering. We are truly at the early days of a New Climate Economy. I AM SO EXCITED 🍿🚀
(2) unfortunately, most #founders in #climatetech don't think holistically about the capital they're raising to finance their businesses. The vast majority (over 90%) are going exclusively after VC, without considering non-dilutive options

1. Brazil and Argentina lobby against evidence in the draft scientific UN/IPCC report on the need to reduce meat consumption to cut greenhouse gas emissions.

@BBCNews reports this, based on leaked documents obtained by @UE (follow them).

➡️ RT

🧵

2. The leaked documents also reveal how Australia pushed back against the need to phase out coal power plants to tackle climate change.

That is like removing references to quit smoking in a scientific report on preventing lung cancer.

3. Australia is not alone: it is also revealed how OPEC and Saudi Arabia are lobbying the UN's climate change experts to delete the finding that the world needs to rapidly phase out fossil fuels.

Is it more effective to reduce your personal carbon footprint or focus on collective action?

There might not be a question that divides the #climate community more.

Let's talk about why that's the wrong question and ultimately a distraction.

🧵
In the last few years there have been some great stories about Big Oil's "carbon footprint sham"

Like this story by @SkepticalRanger - mashable.com/feature/carbon…

And this one by @katemyoder - grist.org/energy/footpri…
The takeaway: fossil fuel companies like BP invented and promoted the concept of a carbon footprint.

Why?

To distract the public and shift the blame away from them and towards the individual.

I recently finished a report ”One Billion Tons – CO2 emissions and a Faster Coal Exit for Germany.” onebilliontons.org. This is a thread of the key points and findings. Report was commissioned by @oekomoderne and done by our non-profit think tank @think_atom 1/n
The study explores the CO2 emissions that could be avoided if Germany kept their #nuclear fleet (#GER6) open and closed coal/lignite, and later fossil gas, production instead. The result is in the name of the report: #onebilliontons 2/n
The remaining nuclear reactors, or #GER6, avoid roughly 60 million tons of CO2 per year. To date, the early, political closures since 2011 have released an extra 500 million tons of CO2 (and much more in the future) as fossil fuel production has been kept running instead. 3/n

1/ This is a thread on concerns I have with #ESG investing and the role of #markets in a functional, #capitalist #democracy. Warning: it’s long and nothing in here is necessarily original on its own, but I wanted to tie together some thoughts.
2/ At the outset, I want to make clear that the following is my analysis, not my firm’s. If ESG factors matter to you, by all means invest accordingly. I also care about environmental, social and governance issues. My guess is almost everyone does to varying degrees.
3/ Additionally, over the last 5+ years I have invested in firms benefitting from cost declines in renewable power, advised clients to do so and at one point was trying to raise an energy transition fund.

1. Suppose an alien spaceship will land on earth next week.

After many light-years of travel through space, some friendly little green creatures decide to get out and stretch their legs on our planet.

What would they report home?

Since the dawn of civilization, humanity has lost 83% of all wild mammals and half of all plants.

Today the @WhiteHouse released a report explaining how it intends to "properly account for and mitigate #climate change-related financial and economic risks" to account for systemic risk in the US government and across the country...

whitehouse.gov/wp-content/upl…
I applaud this effort - the more we recognize the risks we face, the more we might be willing to take action to mitigate them.

But, I think it also important to recognize that individuals need to be doing this accounting of #climaterisk as much as governments and businesses.
That's one reason we are building @GreenPortfolio_

Everyone should understand their exposure to #climate risk and be empowered to start addressing it.

What do you picture when you think of the impact of climate change on Earth's species? #climate #endangered #ph260720
I'm going to guess that many of you picture something like this when you think climate change. And it's true and it's heartbreaking that climate change is endangering this little guy, but too often the conversation ends there. #polarbears #ph260720
Climate change isn't just threatening exotic species in far-off places. It's hurting human health. When we think of climate change, why don't we think of wildfires polluting our air or climate refugees being forced to leave home? #refugees #ph260720

The IMF just released their updated report into fossil fuel subsidies. It makes for grim reading.

Conclusion: The fossil fuel industry benefits from worldwide subsidies of $11m every minute. So every minute, we pour $11m into making the #ClimateEmergency much worse

THREAD
Globally, fossil fuel subsidies were $5.9 trillion in 2020(about 6.8% of global GDP), and are expected to rise to 7.4% of global GDP by 2025

Everyone is at it: Not one of 191 countries prices its fuels sufficiently to reflect their supply and environmental destruction costs

2/
The IMF study provides a comprehensive global, regional, and country-level update of: (i) efficient fossil fuel prices to reflect their full private and social costs; and (ii) subsidies implied by mispricing fuels

You would think no government reads it

📢New article alert! What does international law say about leaving #fossilfuels in the ground to meet the #ParisAgreement #climate goals? And how could it evolve to do so? I explore these questions in a new #OpenAccess article in @ESG_Journal sciencedirect.com/science/articl…🧵
Some background: as a recent @Nature piece by @st_pye & others shows, if we want to keep below 1.5C, large parts of fossil fuel reserves (oil: 58%, gas: 59%, coal: 89%) are 'unextractable' nature.com/articles/s4158… (2/n)
This message also emerges from the annual #ProductionGap report (heads up: the next one is coming in 2 weeks!) by @SEIclimate @IISD_news @UNEP & others: we need to start winding down production *now* to keep global #climate goals within reach @mlaz_sei @_aploy @SEI_Erickson (3/n)

Exclusive: energy plant paid £800m a yr by taxpayer for generating electricity classed as #renewable is biggest CO2 emitter in UK, 3rd highest in Europe. Analysis may spark debate about classing of #biomass as renewable #ClimateAction #Drax
news.sky.com/story/climate-…
Electricity bill-payers were "in effect paying to increase carbon emissions to the atmosphere" 🌏 said Duncan Brack, a policy analyst who has authored a report questioning #biomass policy #climate
Drax claims to have reduced its emissions by 90% since replacing coal with sustainable biomass, calling Ember's interpretation of the figures "completely at odds with what... UN IPCC say about sustainable biomass being crucial to delivering global climate targets"

1. Both predators and prey animals use camouflage to their advantage.

Prey animals blend in with the background, so hungry predators pass right by them.

🧵 Start of a thread with some amazing videos on #Camouflage.

I like this one. 🙂

2. But predators use camouflage too.

The striated frogfish (Antennarius striatus) walks the seafloor right up to its unsuspecting prey.

It has a prognathous mouth that launches an attack on prey in as fast as 6 milliseconds.
