After access to finance, another big obstacle to agroecology is *ACCESS TO #LAND & #WATER* 🌳🚰

📰This month we published 'The Added Value(s) of #Agroecology: Unlocking the potential for transition in West #Africa'

🔎 The research shows why land & water are fundamental 👇🏿

/1 Image
Rapid #population growth, urban sprawl, and land grabbing have created unprecedented pressures on #land and #water resources in West #Africa. Moreover, land laws, often rooted in the colonial era, have generally failed to protect customary tenure and land use.

In fact, between 2000 & 2012, some 3 million hectares of land were subject to large-scale #land acquisitions across nine West African countries.

🔎In #Senegal alone, 650,000+ ha were granted to investors between 2007 & 2016 – equivalent to 16% of the country's arable land❗️

[How #Beiing treats #ClimateStrike at home]

1. While #China claims to reach carbon neutrality by 2060, it is better for the world to draw attention to how this world’s biggest carbon emitter actually treats green activists at home.…
2. Brave teen activist @howey_ou told @VICE, she was once taken to #police station after calling for #ClimateAction outside local gov offices. During interrogation, cops asked her about how she knew about #ClimateChange, why she protests every day and all ppl who had talked to me Image
3. She described green activism isn’t welcome at home when public criticism is viewed as acts of defiance and harshly punished, "It’s all about authority. They weren’t concerned about science or the planet at all.” Image

#ClimateChange Increases Frequency of #Wildfires Globally: Study…

(📸: IANS)
New research adds to the growing body of evidence that #climatechange increases the frequency and severity of fires in many regions of the world.
#Fire weather refers to periods with a high fire risk due to a combination of high temperatures, low humidity, low rainfall, and often high winds.

The West is committing #Ecocide (of which #ClimateChange is just one symptom) & #WhiteSelfGenocide, which have a common cause in that civilisation itself perverts & corrupts evolved human nature.
If academics were to recognise & quickly develop an understanding of this, we could still save ourselves, but they are blinded by their own dependency on the state.
Academics play such a decisive role because they are the ones others look to as authorities. They teach our university-educated elites. Most importantly, social scientists fail to understand the true nature of society & the state, which is their employer.

My piece in @canberratimes today shows how #biodiversity loss is catching up to #climatechange as being recognised as a systemic financial risk (a thread 🧵👇)
Remember how last year's #BlackSummer fires started in spring? That was 12 months ago, in September. It's a pretty major example of how biodiversity loss, climate change, our health & the economy are intertwined.…
I know we've been focussed on the federal government's "low emission technology" roadmap and self-selecting gas lately, so I want to highlight some other fairly important news you might have missed:…

A new report by the #WWF shows that humans are overusing earth’s biocapacity by over 50%, rendering over 68% of all the world’s animal life extinct.

Research has shown that the people most responsible for a warming planet were disproportionately the same people attending the summit and an increasing number of observers see #ClimateChange, #inequality and #capitalism as bound together.
by @AlanRMacLeod…
If the wealthiest ten percent of society continue to live as they do, the world’s entire carbon budget will be blown by 2033, even if all other emissions drop to zero.

1/ Governments are largely not making #ClimateChange action central to their COVID-19 recovery packages, despite some signs of good intentions - our new briefing for #CWNY, released today
2/ We've analysed the post-#COVID_19 #recovery packages of 5 countries: #China, #EU27, #India, #SouthKorea and the #USA. Only two lean towards using the pandemic recovery to address the global #climate crisis: the EU27, and South Korea. First, we looked at overarching packages.
3/ We assessed 106 domestic measures across the 5 countries, differentiating between overarching packages & individual interventions, and rated them. The picture is not the most encouraging.

Let's be clear: voters lack of climate urgency is not the fault of the climate movement. Ultimately the fault lies with our education system and the news media.

According to @EndClimtSilence polling, the majority of Americans learn about #ClimateChange from the news.

1/n Image
And we know that the vast majority of the news media, broadcast news media in particular, never even mentions climate change—and when they do they fail to convey the urgency of the problem or the scope and timing of the solutions.

The fact that American voters haven't put #ClimateChange in the top three of their list for voting is due to the news media failing to tell the climate story. It speaks all the more to the need to force them to #EndClimateSilence.

Guys, this is really, really bad. Our message is not getting through.

In a new @YaleClimateComm @ClimateNexus poll, #ClimateChange came in 13th out of 18 issues "most important" to respondents' votes in November.

People STILL don't understand the urgency.

If we are not half-way to zero emissions in the next ten years, we are fucked. (Not doomed, of course, but fucked—important distinction.)

Half-way to 0 emissions means we must start NOW.

This is the most consequential election in human history due to THE #CLIMATECRISIS.

Everyone who follows me on Twitter knows this, of course.

But voters still don't.

We are failing.

France's Macron is denouncing LIVE the #UN Security Council's failure to act on #COVID19 & general paralysis of the system amid the veto powers of the US, China & Russia. He says the world's future "cannot be left to the rivalry between the U.S. & China."
Macron says the #COVID19 crisis has met a "world beset by crises" with "destructing of the modern order."
He calls 4 new global governance.
5 main priorities for France:
- combat weapons mass destruction (ahem Iran)
- no assassinations/violations Euro-security (ahem Russia)
- combat all forms terrorism (ahem ISIS)
- rule-of-law respect for sovereignty (ahem Lebanon)
- peace in Syria with free elections, democracy, reconstruction: Peace in Middle East

For the 75th time the @UN General Assembly opened today, but for the 1st time, world leaders are not in the same physical space. In all the UN mtgs I have attended the speeches were secondary to the back-room meetings, cutting deals between nations.
I can't imagine how difficult this moment is for Secretary-General @antonioguteres2 -- today was supposed to entail grand displays of celebration of the @UN 75th anniversary. Instead, pre-taped speeches are airing, and political leaders are zooming in from 200 nations.
Meanwhile, here's what's on the @unGa @UN list for global action:
- #SDGs
- Global economic disaster
- #COVID19 #pandemic
- Ongoing, massive #refugee crisis
- #ClimateChange
- Syria
- Iran/nuclear
- South China Seas
- Yemen
- Extreme weather/humanitarian relief
- UN survival

I’m listening to the sickening #hypocrisy of the @GOP as they set the stage to poison the well of America’s Democratic Republic by racing to appoint a new Justice to a lifetime position on the @Scotus just days ahead of a presidential election. It’s galling, craven, & nauseating.
Right now, I am sad. Sad for my two young daughters that will most likely now be forced to grow up with the specter of having their personal autonomy and human right to care for their bodies I a way they feel is best stripped away. 2/
Sad for the women in my life that deserve true equality in every measure. Sad for the millions of folks that could lose their healthcare due to pre-existing conditions. Sad for my LGBTQ 🏳️‍🌈 friends that see their natural rights under attack every day. 3/

#ClimateChange is Making Fishes and Reptiles Age Faster; Cutting Their Lives Shorter: Study…

(📸: Adeline Marcos)
The rapidly changing climate is causing #fishes, #reptiles, and #amphibians to age faster while also decreasing their life expectancy, a new study has found.
While alarming, these findings could play a vital role in improving our understanding of how climate change affects the ageing of certain species, which can further be used to devise better conservation plans for these animals.

(1/4) This speaks to the moralistic hypocrisy of the Liberal/Left. One can make the argument that Ruth Bater Ginsburg #RBG was eugenicist to the core. She said it herself, “It makes no sense as a national policy to promote birth only among poor people.”…
(2/4) Leftists cloak their eugenics w/secular scientism Malthusian religion, #RBG Ginsberg shows here: “Frankly I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth & particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of.”
(3/4) @MZHemingway comment on #RBG: "It would be one thing if she were talking about importance of promoting birth among all groups of people as a way of affirming the sacredness of life or what not...

Meta-Post on the Calamitous Consequences of #PopulationControlLaw if Implemented in India: #Thread

GOI & many Indians are mistaken to think that #PopulationControlBill's the magic-wand to solve demographic snag, #ClimateChange & #poverty by reduced #population footprint.

1. The #PopulationRegulationBill:

First the #PopulationControlAct itself. It was introduced in Rajya Sabha in July 2019 with "2-child policy per couple." The Bill's presented with the associated rewards for adherence & also penalties for violation.

2. The Govt's locus-standi on #PopulationControl:

The GOI has already built a narrative regarding #PopulationControlAct. Popular figures speak of it as the need of the hour. Many back it, articles have been written & a perception's created leading to implementation of the Bill.

When did the solution to the #coronavirus crisis become about addressing the grave threat of #climatechange which can only be addressed via big corps focusing on emissions reduction and building electric alternatives as directed by the #UNSDGs?
How did everyone decide within weeks that we are never going back to normal, that we urgently need a whole #newnormal and that this is the time for a #greatreset and to adopt the #newworldorder ? This kind of synchronised messaging is deeply concerning
Why are local decisions about navigating any kind of crisis being dictated by international organisations and #globalelites? What does any outsider know about the challenges that india faces? Why are these blanket policies and guidelines being set for all countries?

‘There should be a price on #carbon,’ says an expert pushing for policies to combat #climatechange - by @preeti_msoni

@ETC_energy @iyer_sriram #LordAdairTurner…
@preeti_msoni @ETC_energy @iyer_sriram A #carbon price is a fee imposed by the #Government on carbon to reduce carbon emissions. The idea behind carbon pricing is to encourage lower-carbon behaviour and to attract investments into renewable energy by making polluting production processes more expensive.

@preeti_msoni @ETC_energy @iyer_sriram With a #carbon pricing policy in place, countries have seen a 2% fall per year between 2007 and 2017. Whereas, countries without carbon pricing have witnessed a 3% increase in carbon emissions, according to a latest study by the World Economic Forum (@Davos).
