Shills for "The Future We Choose" - round up #2.

Not a coincidence. The majority of those promoting this book are both white & wealthy. #Ecological crisis will never be resolved by the ruling classes. It cannot be resolved within the same economic system that created it.
The Guardian rolls out the red carpet for "The Future We Choose". Par for the capitalist course.

As the former CEO of #WeMeanBusiness, recently appointed by the UK Govt as the High Level Climate Action Champion for UN climate talks, #COP26, of course Nigel Topping is excited.
"It's about human lives"

This anthropocentric ideology appears to be an infectious disease amongst the "enlightened eco-capitalists". It demonstrates that they are absolutely disconnected from the natural world.

#TheFutureTheyChoose will reboot the system destroying Earth.

My previous threads on #qualitative #interviewing referred mainly to one-to-one, semi-structured interviews. Research interviews, however, can be conducted in more than one way. #1 @AcademicChatter #phdchat #QualitativeResearch
@AcademicChatter In this thread, some different ways to conduct interviews are discussed, so have a look and see whether a different format could help answer your research question better. #2
@AcademicChatter The social research literature categorises research interviews roughly into #structured, semi-structured, and unstructured interviews based on the degree of #planning or preparation from the interviewer’s side and the #leeway available for participants in their responses. #3

2. #Sealamprey population control is critical for maintaining #ecological integrity of the #GreatLakes, as one lamprey can kill up to 40lb of lake trout during its parasitic life-stage.
3. #Lampricides are applied by @LampreyControl as part of an intergrated #pest management program, to target the larval stage of the #lamprey, residing in rivers and tributaries of the #GreatLakes.

Not a rocket science. Plain and simple.

Do not encroach natural way of #rivers. Go for river flood zoning. Do not hamper #ecological flow.

#River will provide all you need, Otherwise it will be a disaster !!
What is river flood zoning ?
Here land use planning is done according to the potential of a river for flooding. Prohibited zone and Regulated zone are demarcated. Infra development is done according to risk assessment floods can cause.
- In prohibited zone no infra is created.
- in regulated zone infra like playground, parks etc can be created, which needs less intervention. Can be vacated immediately.
- no habitation in flood zones.

2019 is the 50th edition of the #SIPRIYearbook. Join SIPRI as we celebrate the occasion with a 50-day countdown and share the history of the Yearbook over the past 50 years. Watch the introductory video with SIPRI Director @dansmith2020:
The first #SIPRIYearbook was published in 1969 with the aim ‘to produce a factual and balanced account of a controversial subject—the arms race and attempts to stop it’. The rise in world military spending and disarmament efforts, including the #NPT, take central focus.
'In whatever way the nuclear situation is examined, the inescapable feature is what enormous quantities of weapons have been amassed' – Movement towards a first-strike capability by the #US and #USSR, the #SALT talks and European security were a focus of the 1970 #SIPRIYearbook.

"If I were to write a textbook on #complexity, it would be structured like this..."

"If you talk about #intelligence and #stupidity, you talk about #communication and #policy. That is the natural place to start."

"If you've ever written a Lokta-Volterra #equation, you've drawn a perpetual motion machine. There's no #dissipation."

- SFI President David Krakauer
"Why #God is a bad #theory: it's not because it's not true; it's because it uses an infinite-dimensional process to explain low-dimensional phenomena."

The #progressive #policy #paradox: a thread for the day that’s in it

Or: why #popular #power comes from below

In honour of our “#left and progressive unity” friends and GP voters
Full disclosure: I was once in the Green Party.

In another century, I hasten to add.

I represented the Irish party at the European Federation of GPs and edited what we laughingly called its theoretical journal.
I also spent a year in the French party and, more interestingly, on the far left of the German party. I thought the Irish party had the potential to become a party of and for #SocialMovements. I found I was wrong, and left.

What did it take for Robin Amer (@rsamer) to create an award-winning investigative #podcast on #environmental justice? Three years, more than 65 interviews, and one lawsuit against the @FBI. @thecitypod talks trash — and listeners love it. #Grist50
