WEF coverage on #COVID19 is like a lesson learned of the #TheLeft championing #Globalist ideals thru the lens of COVID19 (catalyst) climate (destination)

#GlobalistLeft view the pandemic as a stepping stone to change policies on health, social, economics

Finally got a chance to listen to @emorwee's Heated podcast with @AliVelshi.

Velshi was awesome—smart, honorable, and remarkably forthright—freely admitting that "our [mainstream] media is not built actually to acknowledge" the #ClimateEmergency.

Some takeaways in a thread...
Velshi sees the #ClimateSilence of TV news, rightly, as a symptom of the systemic power of the fossil-fuel industry, which makes its message simply what passes for news & information.

"You may not know you're getting [its message] all the time, but you're getting it."

Compounding that, the punchy, visual, crisis-driven aesthetic of broadcast news has also seemed to constrain its capacity to cover climate.

"We have [ways] of doing things, and they don't lend themselves to large conceptual discussion."

Welcome world tyrant Larry Fink.
US Fed. Reserve appoints BlackRock to manage its massive corporate debt purchase program in response to the Covid-19 crisis…
EU EC appoints BR to advise… on environmental, social & governance factors
Look at the graph The impoverishment of Emerging Marktes, EM, is now 5x harder than in the crisis 2008 bc non-residents, ie foreign "investors" like Larry Fink pull money from them to put it where 4% dividend is still possible - during the pandemic.
>1.5yrs of Covid dance around PPE until a vacc is ready, paired with acute crop loss due to climate change, is the tipping point on which the Anthroposphere will now slide into ruin if we don't stop Larry.
The $ crisis is too massive and bc of climate, no relief is on the horizon

Wise analogy: "The curve is flattening; we can start lifting restrictions now = The parachute has slowed our rate of descent; we can take it off now."
@Helmholtz_HZI model: a very strict lockdown for 2 months is the end of Covid.
I suggest: make it a global synchronous lockdown

We can secure🌍food & home guarantees by going non-profit. It also stops the threat to the world order where obscene profiteers shift "investments" from poor and shaken nations to locations which still promise 4% dividend.

Covid will prove to be THE tipping point in the Anthroposphere:

*If nations are too poor to even feed their ppl they won't get rid of FF energy

*Existential fears makes people susceptible to rightwing nationalists -who don't act on the #ClimateEmergency

"If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention."

On the HEATED podcast, @emorwee is showing how the fossil fuel industry is using coronavirus relief packages as a way to achieve their policy objectives.
As oil & gas execs meet with the President looking for bailouts, Congressional Republicans hoot down the inclusion of measures that would improve the lives of <every living human being.> #COVID19 isn't partisan, neither is the climate crisis.
“I’m not going to allow this to be an opportunity for the Democrats to achieve unrelated policy items that they would not otherwise be able to pass.” - Mitch McConnell
That's why the EPA used the cover of #COVID19 to stop enforcing health regulations.…

Thread | While some people enjoyed #hailstorm in #Delhi with their children, a 10-year-old in Uttar Pradesh feared what his father (farmer) will do when he will see the destroyed crops in the morning.
#weather #India #ClimateChange @PARInetwork @hridayeshjoshi
This fear-stricken child assures his father that he will study hard and bring him out of the vicious cycle of farm loans. This child’s father – a landless farmer lost all his crops.

#hailstorm #rains #DelhiRains #weather #India #ClimateChange #ClimateCrisis #ClimateEmergency
Now he has to pay rent for the land, arrange money from a private lender to buy the seeds again and restart his life.

Droughts are currently having widespread impacts around the world.

E.g. in Thailand

“Many rice mills are refusing to sell due to uncertainty over supply during this dry season" ..."Many parts of the country’s rice growing area have been hit by drought"

Whanganui farmer worries about drought, not coronavirus

"The world needs to eat - coronavirus or not - and farmers can take heart from that"

Drought in Africa, Southern Europe Threatens Durum Crops

"deterioration of rainfall in late January and February and exceptionally high temperatures in February have caused low planted areas and low crop performance”

The Government has made an ad about the Coronavirus and its surprisingly honest and informative 🌍🦠

👉 Spread the message not the virus: #FlattenTheCurve
I wasn't planning on making an Honest Government Ad about the Corona virus, I was already working on something else, but a few days ago it became glaringly obvious that we needed to make this video.

Because it's a shitshow...
It's an unusual HGA: we take a break from counting the ways our Government is shit*, in order to *help* Govts communicate a vital public health announcement: #FlattenTheCurve

* (We made an exception for the US Govt whose shitfuckery is going to get a lot of people killed)...

Social distancing was made possible for me today in large part thanks to the King Street Bike Lane, @LdnOntBikeCafe and @Wine_Vinyl and #ldnont biking community. I rode my bike in to work instead of riding a bus. It also helps I have a secure place to keep my bike
Without the King Street Bike Lane I probably would never have felt comfortable biking, without @Wine_Vinyl patience riding with me the first few rides and without the biking community and especially @LdnOntBikeCafe showing how it can be done it wouldn't have happened.
I know lots of ppl are keeping an entire SUV bubble around themselves but doing that is contributing to the #climateemergency which will have a HUGE negative effect on health and safety for everyone not to mention the economy in the future.

I have an idea. Let's not bail out unconventional oil companies. Instead, let's use those spare billions to support workers across America staying home for a couple weeks and stop this virus in its tracks. Let's rest and look after one another. It will be worth it.
Let's empty the jail and camps and nursing homes and come up with something healthier, and figure out housing for those without it. As opposed to propping up an uneconomical industry, at the end we'd have real physical useful infrastructure at the very least.
Next, while our collective fragility is still fresh in mind, let's stay home a couple more weeks since everything is all disrupted anyway and have family and neighborhood and national conversations about #ClimateEmergency and our options to respond.

Great to see draft #HeatNetworksBill laid in @ScotParl by @ScotGovEnergy today 👏

Heat networks can grow our use of #renewable heat & cut emissions on the path to #NetZero

Here's a rundown of the key policies in the Bill (THREAD) @ScotRenew 🔥…
The Bill will introduce a Scottish Heat Networks License, to technical standards & customer service (within devolved powers). Important to ensure we build high-quality #HeatNetworks in future (2/9)
A ‘Network Wayleave Right’: license will confer powers to lay pipes to the edge of a building, inspired by the Danish obligation to connect. Won’t solve the anchor load problem but will address issues around if/where pipes can go. Who pays is key question #climatechange (3/9)

Climate change will likely lead to:
1. Food and water shortages
2. Pandemic disease
3. Disputes over refugees
4. Disputes over resources
5. Destruction by natural disaster.

So wrote @DeptofDefense in 2014.

This is Australia in 2020.

A most critical issue about global heating, mostly missed most of the time, is that destruction can be (and often is) larger than climate models predict

Latest evidence: 21% of Australia’s TOTAL forested area burnt this fire season. No climate model ever predicted that

Note the 21% figure is also understated: It does not include Tasmania (yet), and Australia's 2019-2020 fire season is still going

The proportion of forest burnt in any season on any other continent in that timeframe was 4-5%

"The faster [the planet] warms, the more likely we are to be taken by surprise"

The less we want to be taken by surprise, the more we have to consider outcomes beyond our current ability to predict them. Wretched. Terrible. Previously completely avoidable. But reality today
