The Senate weighed in on the grid & the @PUCTX's proposed market design changes last week. Today, the House State Affairs Cmte meets to ask questions of the PUC, #ERCOT, the Independent Market Monitor & industry. I'll tweet some highlights here. #txlege 1/

Chair Lake starts by saying it was "misinformation" that extremes weren't included in the study. They in fact did not include Uri.

Here's the quote from the study: "The 1980-2019 sample does not include the extreme cold weather event caused by Winter Storm Uri in 2021... (cont.)

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.

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.

P.E.I. needs to create a shoreline management plan that looks at how climate change will impact its shores over the next 100 years, says one coastal engineer. #Canada #Climate
The province's environment minister announced that P.E.I. is placing a moratorium on new development in the Island's shoreline buffer zones until a policy to protect them can be drafted.
That policy needs to examine how the shorelines will change over time, said Michael Davies, president of Coldwater Consulting in Ottawa.

BREAKING: #BNNDenmark Reports.

There are plans in place to build Denmark's first district without electricity, water, or heat. The Funen district will be disconnected from public networks such as the electricity grid. #Climate #ClimateChange #ElectricityGrid #Denmark Image
The Ground Brenderup association, which owns the land, will take on the project. As a result, the district will be designated as an off-grid district, with supply sources such as electricity, water, and heat not being connected in order to achieve climate neutrality.
Small, mobile homes built with sustainable materials and with little excess space will be the norm. Despite the fact that being off-grid in Denmark has been difficult due to several rules, the association believed that long-term ambition was possible.

@RipSullivan48 You wrote the Va Green bill based on as many misperceptions as your piece in @RTDOpinions. You failed to acknowledge the blunder in the offshore wind project negating its cost effectivness, aside from location in defense & commercial shipping & endangering whales 1
@RipSullivan48 @RTDOpinions 2 There is NO EXTANT electric grid infrastructure to bring power from wind inland once built. Not a minor oversight. Exactly how soon do you think these quixotic windmills will be operable? Not in 10 years. The SMRs are not new technologies. They've long been used in research.
@RipSullivan48 @RTDOpinions 3 Light water SMRs are currently in development for commercialization and new coolants are being evaluated. This is much closer to commercialization & deployment than most renewables. Va is already involved in developing SMRs with @doescience at @USNatLabs I did research w @NREL.

Bristol's Clean Air Zone (CAZ) has come into force today. Drivers of vehicles that do not comply with the emissions levels will have to pay a charge ranging from - £9 to £100. #UK #Climate
Residents and those visiting the city centre will have noticed signs and cameras being placed throughout the city centre, in preparation for the big opening day.
The £9 charge is for private cars, taxis and light goods vehicles and £100 for heavy goods vehicles, buses and coaches. Bristol City Council estimates about 70% of vehicles will not be charged.

No matter what the magnitude of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions has on climate (I would argue its overstated by the IPCC) the warming climate has not at all been bad for most of the planet. Yes sea levels are rising slightly (about 1/10th of the rate...
...that they rose after the last glacial) and obviously temperatures have risen (much more in urban areas due to the Urban Heat Island Effect) but people are living longer than ever. Less folks are at risk of famine or malnutrition than ever before. There has been...
...no increase in extreme weather events such as droughts, floods, or hurricanes. The planet is greening and with that crop yields are at record highs. Vast amount of land that was unsuitable for agriculture or livestock due to cold temps is becoming available...

There’s still time to join us – register here: us02web.zoom.us/webinar/regist…
Are Australia's emmissions reducing? @RDNS_TAI responds with a flat "no." @pollyjhemming reminds viewers that Australia's actual emissions have only gone down 1.8% relative 2005. #climate #auspol Image
What is green Wall St.?🤨Polly Hemming says that despite the release of the State of the Environment which showed that Australia's ecosystems are collapsing, the govt. has refused to regulate polluting industries. Instead, they leave it to the markets to find a solution. #auspol

#COP27 ends, our quick take:
-Hopeful: agreement on loss & damage
-Bad: we’re on track to 2.7C
-Significant: 1st agreement to include action on agriculture & #foodsecurity
-Disappointing: #agroecology & #foodsystems deleted
-Dismaying: zero #climatefinance for small-scale farmers Image
It is a significant step to see the UN #climate agreement will officially begin to target greater action on the 1/3rd of carbon emissions from industrial #agriculture and make agriculture more resilient to climate change - @ZGoita Image
We cannot ignore that the world’s small-scale farmers have been shut out & drowned out from this #COP27 says @Million_Belay of @Afsafrica.

They demanded recognition for diverse resilient farming #agroecology, and #climatefinance. But they leave with very little Image

A tale of two COPs in Sharm El Sheikh: On one hand a landmark decision to establish a loss and damage fund to address the devastating consequences of climate change, on the other a major failure to finally name and tackle the cause of the climate crisis: fossil fuels. #COP27
Incredible to see country after country line and call for this COP to be the first in 30 years to finally have the guts to name the roots of the #climate crisis: coal, oil and gas. From major producers to major polluters, developed to developing countries. downtoearth.org.in/news/climate-c…
Wanting ALL fossil fuels to be included:
India
Tuvalu- then all of AOSIS
Colombia- then all of AILAC

Today at #COP27, we @priceofoil released a briefing peeling back the curtain on the oil & gas industry’s expansion plans: the new extraction approved in 2022 & what’s in the queue for 2023-2025ーunless govts put a stop to it ➡️ priceofoil.org/investing-in-d…

A thread 🧵
First, let’s look at the deep hole the fossil fuel industry has already drilled, dug, and fracked us into. 🔥Oil & gas fields already producing or approved PRIOR to 2022 would cause 490 GtCO2, if fully extracted. 🔥

That alone is enough to push the world past 1.5C warming.
Yet, the oil and gas industry keeps digging the hole deeper. We find new fields & fracking wells approved in 2022 + on the brink of approval in the next 3yrs would lock in an extra 70 Gt of CO2. That’s equal to 17% of the world’s remaining 1.5C carbon budget. #InvestingInDisaster
