Today, ISD and @caadcoalition launched a new flagship report on disinformation and the climate crisis, unpacking the narratives and tactics that emerged around the COP27 summit in Nov. 🌍🔥🚨

A🧵of key findings, and what we can do in response, below.…
@caadcoalition First, we found the increasing centrality of an 'anti-woke agenda' around climate. Accounts following the 50 top climate misinformers on Twitter were engaging w/ a broad conservative agenda, for which climate has become a key talking point, according to mapping by @Graphika_NYC. Image
@caadcoalition @Graphika_NYC Just 12 of these 'misinfo influencers'– known for sharing sceptic/delayist/denialist content on Twitter– garnered more than 343k shares on 388 climate-themed posts around #COP27. Nine of the 12 are verified accounts w/ followers ranging from 65k to 1.9m.…

🧵 @bmngabirano1, de @Afsafrica, la plus grande association africaine qui représente plus de 200 millions de paysans et d’autochtones, appelle à la transition agro-écologique à l’échelle du continent et propose 5 grandes mesures pour l’entamer dès maintenant
1. Avec l’aide des sociétés civiles africaine, faire pression sur les gouvernements africains pour mettre en place des politiques publiques favorisant le système alimentaire agro-écologique, basé sur les petits producteurs locaux, dans le respect de leurs traditions.
2. Sortir du modèle de la « Révolution verte » imposé par la @WorldBank et basé sur la privatisation du vivant et le modèle agro-chimique qui réduit la souveraineté alimentaire, la valeur nutritionnelle des aliments et la résilience à la crise climatique.…

Meet our activists in Colombia! The collective
@ciencia_local is our sister group in Colombia.

In November 2022 they held actions in Bogota and Casanare, calling for the release of our activists imprisoned in Germany and denouncing the lies and deceit of politicians at #COP27. Image
Voice of Colombia: "Politicians have to accept that political power is useless in the face of the climate crisis, only if scientific criteria are taken into account in the decisions of the states, it is possible to improve the future of humanity".
More than 200 environmental activists were murdered in Colombia in 2022. A dramatic reality in the global south: The voices of activists are silenced by threats, persecution and death. But this situation does not stop climate activism, because the emergency transcends generations Image

Did you know that 7% of global carbon emissions come from road #freight transportation? 🚚

And that @Tesla's Semi truck has almost 2x the range of its competitors?

1/ Trucking needs disruption 🚚💥

7% of global carbon emissions come from road freight transportation, aka trucking.

This is comparable to that of the global aviation industry, and arguably much easier to #decarbonise.

2/ Tesla are NOT the first 🥇

Improvements in battery #tech have gone leaps and bounds, to the point where traditional trucking companies like:

Voices from Global South: meet our activists in Tanzania!
SR activists from the Global South are first hand witnesses of the consequences of the criminal policies that produced & keep worsening the #ClimateCrisis, and they are speaking loud against them! (1/7)
Just between October and November 2022, they organized numerous actions and demonstrations to bring Global South voices to the #COP27 table. (2/7)
They protested in the streets of Dar es Salaam with the coalition #UniteAgainstClimateFailure to call out world leaders on their deadly inaction and demand reparation for #LossAndDamage. (3/7)

Here is my take on #COP27 outcome(s) on #climate #mitigation based mostly on fieldnotes from COP, focussing on #FossilFuels, #JustTransition & #equity/ambition dichotomy.@TheIndiaForum @girmanipal @CentreMarcBloch @FU_Berlin @NavrozDubash @ClimateDiplo 1/8…
I argue, "Despite alarming evidence about the pace of cc, #COP27 failed to raise mitigation ambition. While the 1.5°C limit was salvaged in the end, the lack of consensus on fossil fuel phase-down/phase-out scuttled the possibility of meaningful action in the coming years." 2/8
Not only are #industrialized countries' mitigation commitments grossly insufficient to meet the 1.5°C limit, their efforts to sidestep their pre-2020 commitments, Paris decisions & delink developing countries' mitigation efforts from #climatefinance dilute #equity. 3/8

Yesterdays Energy Council tells a depressing story about the EU and energy.

80% of debate dedicated to a solution every expert says doesn't work: gas price cap

And 20% dedicated to a solution that works and then not agree to it: cutting gas demand

But its not the whole story🧵
Simone here sums up rather well why the gas price cap won't solve Europe's energy problems
What makes things worse is that Energy Ministers failed to agree to raise renewables ambition by 2030 to 45% which would have taken another 118 bcm bite out of EU gas consumption by 2030:…

While diplomats in Egypt were negotiating the #COP27 agreement last month to help poor nations cope with the crippling impact of a warmer planet, one of the biggest US climate disasters in recent years was unfolding in a rural corner of #Pennsylvania: 1/11…

A leak from a 1 5/8-inch vent on a natural gas storage well operated by @EquitransMid was discovered on Nov. 6 and lasted for 13 days, during which more than 1 billion cubic feet of the fossil fuel escaped. 2/11
The primary component of natural gas is #methane, which has a devastating impact on the climate if released directly into the atmosphere where it has more than 80 times the warming power of carbon dioxide in its first two decades. 3/11

In my latest cover piece for the @etribune magazine, @ashoswai describes the loss and damage fund, agreed at #COP27, as another hollow promise. There are very few quantitative pledges.

“The agreement at #COP27 to create a loss & damage fund is a moral victory for the Global South, but for all practical purposes, it doesn't mean much. We’ve been hearing about similar #climate funds since 2009, says @ashoswai

🧡 19 people are appearing in court today to face charges associated with #M25 and art actions as the group continues to demand that the government halts all new oil and gas licences and consents.

#FossilFuels #ClimateCrisis #COP27 #A22Network #UK #Climate
Amy-Rose, 20, from Bromley, appearing at South Crown Court today said:

“If you feel outraged by the actions of Just Stop Oil supporters, ask yourself how things have got to this point? Imagine how you would feel if it was your son or daughter locked away for doing what's right”
⚖️ Hannah Hunt, 23 and Eben Lazarus, 22, both from Brighton are at Westminster Magistrates Court to face trial.

⏰ At 8am, 15 Just Stop Oil supporters walked onto the road at Bricklayers Arms roundabout in South London demanding the government halt all new oil and gas licences.

Sam Griffiths, 47, a Dad and designer from London said:

"I feel sick seeing how little is happening to address climate breakdown, the biggest crisis humanity has ever faced. And our Government is actively making things worse. Granting over 100 new oil licences is indefensible"
💬 "I started actively supporting Just Stop Oil after we had 40°C in the UK for the first time in recorded history. It scared the shit out of me. I looked at my boy and realised I couldn't just continue to do nothing."

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.

#worldsoilday #soil #soilcarbon #carbonmarkets #climateaction #netzero #climate
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.
@earthbanc is a promoter of reforestation, conservation, protection, and tree planting which restores soil organic carbon and biology, prevents erosion and restores local ecosystems.

A flurry of frenzied MAGA Trumpites are QTing this denying the link between capitalism and climate change. Let's delve into the actual reality deeper.
#COP27 took place in Egypt as the climate crisis worsens. In October, the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) reported that there are now record levels of all three greenhouse gases (carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, methane) in the atmosphere.
Last year saw the biggest year-on-year jump in methane concentration in 40 years. The growth rate for carbon dioxide concentration was greater last year than the average over the last decade.

Seit 25 Jahren versuche ich, die größte Krise der Menschheit zu verstehen und zu einer Lösung durch Wissen beizutragen. In dieser Zeit hat sie sich von Klimawandel zu Klimanotstand radikalisiert. Wie hält man das aus & was hat das mit meinen Erkenntnissen gemacht? Langer 🧵 1/24
Sowohl Klimapolitik als auch meine berufliche Beschäftigung damit haben harmlos begonnen. In den 1990er Jahren dachte man noch, wir haben viel Zeit (bis 2100) den „Klimawandel“ einzudämmen und das werde langsam aber sicher gut gehen, so wie immer bisher... 2/

Interested in what has been happening in the #AU & #EU partnerships since their Feb Summit 9 months ago? Early this week, they met again. Has this brought new life into the partnership, or has any progress been made? A thread 👇
@ECDPM @ettg_eu
1. On peace and security

EU reiterated €600m commitment to AU and Africa-led peace support operations for 2022-2024. But concerns over the sustainability of the EPF are there. 55% of its budget for 2021-2027 has already been pledged to Ukraine.

2. On a positive note the EU announced its support for the AU Human Rights Compliance Framework as part of the EU-AU-UN tripartite cooperation launched in November.

COP27 a "successful" COP. Unique challenge for countries of global South that want to use this as opportunity. Challenging to manage developed countries to steer to consensus outcomes, while preserving Southern solidarity and unity.2/n
Major achievement -- putting L&D funding on agenda, while seeing off putting Article 2.1c also there, to the negotiation rooms. Hopefully it will stay there, while the new finance language (see below) takes over. 3/n

🇪🇬Egypt is doing everything it can to bolster LNG exports to🇪🇺EU and collect additional revenues for its stranded domestic economy.
The targets are to maximise domestic production and rationalise consumption, hitting a new high in LNG exports for 2022.
At what costs?🧵
According to the🇪🇬Minister of Petroleum & Mineral Resources Tarek El-Molla🇪🇬LNG exports will hit a new high of 8 mt/y in 2022.
This means +8% compared to 2021 as🇪🇬tries to gain from the hefty prices of LNG paid by🇪🇺countries.
