Every once a while, a momentous environmental law comes into force. That's the case of the EU Deforestation Regulation

This is the most consequential anti-deforestation law in history

THREAD #deforestation #climate #biodiversity
The EU Deforestation Regulation mandates extensive due diligence for operators and traders dealing with products derived from

> Cattle
> Cocoa
> Coffee
> Oil palm
> Rubber
> Soya
> Wood

Non-compliance is very costly

Fines for companies caught importing, trading or selling banned products will total up to at least 4% of annual EU revenues. Using Nestlé as an example, this could mean a fine of about $800m

Anomalies in #Antarctic sea ice concentration show the monthly variation from the long-term mean. This map from shows more ➖ than ➕ anomalies for June. See the lack of sea ice in Bellingshausen Sea (arrowed), almost at summer ice levels in mid-winter! Image
This map from @NSIDC and @NASAEarth shows sea ice concentration on 17 June. The orange line is the typical extent for that day based on the average from 1981 to 2010. Some coastal regions are now ice-free where that has not been observed before. Image
The last decade has seen increased variability. Sea-ice area reached a record low in Feb 2023 following the previous record low in Feb 2022, and an extremely low summer avg in 2016/17. Is this shift in Antarctic sea ice a response to climate change? We need to find out @IPCC_CH. graph: Will Hobbs, AAPP

Based on current temperatures in the #Arctic & sea surface temps elsewhere, there is a chance of a blue ocean event occurring within the next 5 years. If this happens, it will signify a shift into a totally new #climate paradigm, one that pushes civilization to the brink. #NASA
If you thought the heating of the oceans was accelerated by a lack of Sahara dust or shipping exhaust ain't seen nothing yet.
For those 🤡 🤡 that think this is fake etc - the data is acquired by the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer 2 (AMSR2) instrument aboard the Global Change Observation Mission 1st-Water "SHIZUKU" (GCOM-W1) satellite.

The #BonnClimateConference failed once again to address the key drivers of the #ClimateCrisis [= #FossilFuels]. Delay is the new Denialism.
A 🧵on the #FalseSolutions increasingly being pushed in the @UNFCCC negotiations: #CCS #CDR & #geoengineering are dangerous distractions!
Science is crystal clear, the only way to meaningfully reduce emissions is a rapid, equitable, full & funded phase-out of ALL fossil fuels. In this essential #JustTransition, there's is NO space for dangerous distractions such as #CCS or #CarbonRemoval.…

A disparate cluster of interests -some venal, some ideological, some quasi-religious- have found common expression in the issue of #Climate™️. Too much, intellectually, financially, emotionally, politically has been sunk into it to allow for honest discussion.
Even minor scepticism or attempts at technical or economic discussion start by begging the question of whether ANY of this game is worth the candle; all include the Insh’allah of “...while climate change is accelerated and we must (!) address the problem at once...”
If we start from the false premise that the threat is both pressing and existential, then obviously we narrow the choice to a menu of ‘solutions’ which involve vast expenditure, radical social upheaval, and severe limitations on personal liberty.

When a giant company wrecks your life, what are you gonna do? They can hire more and better lawyers, and they have people whose sole job is fighting off suits - are you gonna beat those people by suing as as a side-hustle? Do you wanna be a full-time, professional litigant?

For some people, the answer is yes: some people are angry enough, or sufficiently morally offended, to make suing a giant company their life's mission. Sometimes, they succeed, and force companies to cough up gigantic sums of money.

Yesterday, @MTAGKnudsen & assistants filed a "writ of supervisory control" - last-minute plea to the MT Supreme Court to stop the case from proceeding in district court (this is their 8th attempt to stop the case)
My Sidenote: This is same AG who inserted himself to dismiss charges against a guy who pulled a gun on people in Helena restaurant - same AG who played doctor by pressuring health care professionals who refused to prescribe ivermectin to covid patients (the list keeps going...) Image
@MTAGKnudsen argues because people are paying attention - it should be dismissed because there "are no relevant facts to find" (again- this is from the same guy who happily played doctor in favor of ivermectin) Image

Currently, about half the world's population relies on synthetic fertilizers produced from fossil fuels. Before you go blocking traffic and glueing yourself to something you better have a solution to ensure that these people won't starve in your plan to save the planet. #climate Image
The Haber-Bosch process is a chemical process that converts nitrogen gas (N₂) from the air and hydrogen gas (H₂) from natural gas or other hydrocarbon sources into ammonia (NH₃). It was developed in the early 20th century and is one of the most important industrial processes. Image

Spain's farms are dying. Their pastures are disappearing. Their livestock is becoming too expensive to even feed. Their ministers resort to calling for the EU crisis mechanism to be triggered. The #Climate crisis is now an EU farming and food supply crisis. Image
Spain and Portugal have requested the activation of the European Food Security Crisis Preparedness and Response Mechanism (EFSCM), which could provide up to 450 million euros. However, other EU nations have been hesitant to initiate the mechanism, it requires unanimous agreement.

Si può parlare di #Climate Change senza isterie e pregiudizi in un senso o nell’altro?
Vorrei fare una considerazione storico-scientifica sul significato dell’espressione “Cambiamento Climatico” e sulla sua evoluzione.

Quando andavo al liceo, tra gli anni ’70 e ’80, studiavamo il cambiamento climatico come qualcosa accaduto nell’intera storia della Terra. Consisteva in processi tettonici, vulcanici, variazioni nella attività solare e alla sua distanza dalla Terra,

cambi su scala millenaria nella circolazione oceanica e molti altri processi di questo tipo.

Nel 20° secolo ci siamo resi conto che gli uomini potevano intervenire sul clima attraverso l’uso del suolo, la deforestazione,

Wood burning can cause cancer, esp lung cancer, respiratory disease, heart disease, dementia, premature death, & other health issues which are devastating. Wood burning emits more CO2 than gas. Inaction and silence on this affects everyone.
No laws to stop residential burning (fireplaces, fire pits, backyard burning, planned burns), & no public campaign on the dangers of residential burning means anyone can burn and emit smoke into your home. No action now, leaves you, the next generation, & environment unprotected
