1/ Thanks for having me to #EUInfluencer to talk about trends emerging from digital communication, corona and the latest EU policies!

Here are a few thoughts 👇
2/ While digital has changed political communication, it is important to remember the communication objectives remain the same:

📰 Media attention
📢 Messaging
🤝 Mobilisation
🙋 reaching people
🌐 Building networks and communities
3/ Digital has changed is the communications environment.

📺 New channels, like blogs and social media influencers
🌀 New conventions, like a 24 hr cycle of content production
💰 Costs of participation down
📊 New measures and metrics
🛠️ New tools for connecting

1/7 Thread: the @EUCouncil proposal for the CAP (…) regarding GAEC 9 bears two conceptual flaws. First, non-production areas were proven valuable for both biodiversity and ecosystem services, while production-oriented areas like catch crops, are ineffective.
2/7 Second, catch crops and N-fixing crops are not landscape features. A proposal for accepting merely 3% “landscape features” is far under current cover of such features, as demonstrated by their rapid and still ongoing declines.
3/7 Evidence also shows that the inclusion of prodution options in Greening has been the key factor leading to the failure of EFAs and, de facto, the end of the Greening attempt, for a simple reason: if farmers can choose production-oriented but ineffective options, they do.

Can the Green Deal really be considered as Europe's new growth strategy? A super short thread, with some numbers 👇 #ClimateChange #GreenDeal #EUGreenDeal #SOTEU
1. According to the macro-models used by the European Commission itself to assess the new 2030 climate target, the answer is: NO. At best, the EC economy would expand by 0.5% due to increased climate ambition.
2. This is not surprising. Other studies have illustrated that the macroeconomic effect of Green New Deals is likely to be small (around +0.1% of annual GDP growth according the literature review conducted by Gueret et al, 2019)…

#KlimaVor8 EU-Rat beschloss schon "Kontrollierte Zentren" für nur 1.5mio syrische Klimakriegsflüchtlinge.

Historisch-empirisch folgt ~2030 offener Faschismus in EU, denn >1.5˚tritt einen KlimaExodus aus N-Afrika und Levante los. Dann endet auch Opposition in KZ.
#EUGreenDeal >3˚
Es passiert ja heute schon so wie 1933-45 in DE: "Die Mitte" guckt weg. Auch aus Hilflosigkeit, weil öffentlich gar keine Alternativen zum Massenertrinken und Lagerhaltung als Abschreckung diskutiert werden.

Wie realisieren wir #Niewieder?
👉Die Debatte kapern MIT Alternativen Image
Die Alternativen, die debattiert werden sollten:
*Willkommenskultur trainieren
*Wohnungsbau beschleunigen –ökologisch und psychologisch nachhaltig mehrstöckig (keine EFH mehr)
*die 6 (!) Revolutionen brauchen Manpower, aber da ist ein Flaschenhals, denn Boomer gehen in Rente

Les travaux reprennent en Commission de l'Agriculture. Aujourd'hui nous votons sur :

🌍 la stratégie UE-Afrique
🌊 la "loi climat"
🌲 la stratégie forestière 🇪🇺

3 textes que j’ai suivi de près comme rapporteur et comme rapporteur fictif. On revient dessus en détail⤵️

I. 1/20. Notre Commission parlementaire vote un Avis sur la «loi climat» : un texte proposé par la Commission 🇪🇺 pour atteindre la «neutralité climatique» en 2050. L’un des textes phares du #EUGreenDeal, ce plan «écologique» proposé par @vonderleyen après les élections 🇪🇺 2019.
Mais la « loi climat » proposée par la Commission européenne n’éclaire pas bien loin. Le texte soumis au Parlement est creux et le chantier vaste pour hausser celui-ci au niveau de l’urgence climatique et environnementale.…

Most pressing global problem?
"Climate change, even now", say most people in UK, France, Finland, Denmark, Germany, Sweden, and the Netherlands. Image
"Yeah, you know, climate is important, but we can't put it front and center, because it's not a priority for voters", the Dutch green party once told me. It is now. Not an excuse anymore, for whatever party.
In fact, it's amazing that voters have it this high on their list, when so few parties and politicians have ever put climate action front and center in their messaging. Go, go, go now!

What is the role of climate action in the #EUCO deal? 🌍💡A thread 👇
#EUGreenDeal #GreenRecovery
1a. An overall climate target of 30% will apply to the total amount of expenditure from the EU budget and NextGenerationEU. As we have argued before, this target should be handled carefully, as anticipated contributions to climate-related spending are likely to be overstated.
1b. The EUCO faces this issue by: i) Asking the EC to develop an effective methodology for monitoring climate-spending and its performance; ii) Asking the EC to report annually on climate expenditure.…

L’Europe veut mettre notre argent dans les énergies fossiles! Aujourd’hui nous votons sur les investissements dans les infrastructures énergétiques. Techno? Simple: va-t-on mettre notre argent ou pas dans la poche des pollueurs.#THREAD #climat #zerofossile
Fera-t-on bien le #GreenDeal pour protéger le #climat?! Selon deux rapports de Corporate Europe Observatory @corporateeurope , c’est mal parti : les fossiles ont encore toutes leurs entrées au royaume de la Commission européenne! Exemples.
Les principaux commissaires en charge du #EUGreenDeal #GreenDeal les ont rencontré 151 fois, soit 11 rencontres par semaine ! Et seulement 29 fois avec des représentants de l’intérêt général. Où est la #FossilFreePolitics ?!

1/ 🇪🇺 Great discussion with @OpenEUDebate on how coronavirus has and will continue to transform EU communications.

A few takeaways👇
2/ 📡Remote working, remote conferences and remote communication - as people get more comfortable with these formats, its only natural our focus moves more and more online (like @EU_Commission virtual press room!)
3/ 👩‍🔬 Experts are back in fashion. After growing suspicion of experts in 2000s/2010s, we see doctors/scientists/other experts welcomed in the public debate again.

If we want to become the first climate neutral continent by 2050, we need to switch our energy systems from fossil fuels to clean.

#hydrogenstrategy #systemintegration #EUGreenDeal
Scaling up the use and production of clean #hydrogen is key for a strong, competitive, and carbon-free economy. The hydrogen strategy and the investment plan that comes with it will not only bring jobs in the hydrogen sector, but also propel industry into the 21st century.
We want to maintain steel production in Europe. That is in our industrial strategy. And with hydrogen we can make it happen: we can produce green steel in Europe 🌱

Neuer @CoalExit @DIW_Berlin Wochenbericht zeigt die Möglichkeiten eines #EUGreenDeal 🇪🇺 mit 💯% #Erneuerbare bis 2040.
Das impliziert auch eine Anschärfung Deutscher Klimaziele 🇩🇪

Zum Download 👇…

Die wichtigsten Ergebnisse im folgenden Thread [1/n] ⏩

Die Emissionen in den Bereichen Strom, Transport, Gebäude und Industrie können bis 2040 auf 0 reduziert werden. Dafür braucht es einen beschleunigten Ausbau Erneuerbarer Energien.

Im europäischen Stromsektor bedingt eine Einhaltung der Pariser Klimaziele den Austieg aus Kohle, Gas und Öl bis 2040. Windkraft und Photovoltaik werden die Stützpfeiler des neuen Systems.

My first 2 months at @EU_ScienceHub have been fascinating. I’ve begun to explore a rich tradition of scientific excellence spanning nearly 60 years.

Here are some of the things I have discovered so far ⬇️

The core mission of @EU_ScienceHub is to provide science and facts to underpin EU policymaking.

Our researchers work to support EU policymaking, from conception and design to implementation and monitoring. We have 6 different sites:

With #Covid19 as the ultimate catalyst, the push is on to implement the financialization of nature.

The Natural Capital Coalition is made up of approx. 300 orgs/corps while working w/ thousands. Partners include #CocaCola, #Shell, #Walmart.

Those with money will own #nature.
Those w/ $ will own #nature.

The very corporations that have brought us to the precipice of #ecological #collapse - will now be appointed as the new stewards of nature. This has been dubbed (#XR Business - Elkington/Volans) as the new biosphere economy.

Let's take a look at how #Covid19 has been successfully leveraged (both fear & distraction) in order to aid the largest transformation of the global economic system in modern history. Assigning monetary value to nature ("natural capital") will replace #GDP.
