1) I have added this traitor to our BLACK HAT list. Abuse his timeline severely.

No dirt needed since he's fleeing DC b4 2020. Crooks like @SenAlexander can't survive without a swamp structure.

She's considering a 2020 run. @SenatorCollins is a BribeHag. So we simply follow the money (through the usual buffers) for her.

#BritishGas has been throwing their consumers money into the #moneypit by propping up failing #fracking company #Cuadrilla. Yesterday once again their shares took a tumble continuing an ongoing trend.

@BoycottCentrica #referral #uswitch #energy
Here's how #BritishGas consumers are paying for the UK #fracking industry whilst raising their consumers energy bills in spite of the #pricecap in #energyprice bills are due to go up again 10% on the 01/04/219.

There is also very poor confidence in A J Lucas the parent company of Cuadrilla. Read the report from Simply Wall Street. 👇

Where do you put your effort as a human being in a rapidly destabilising world?

Peace? Development? Women's rights? Public health?

Or building a social movement large enough to counterbalance the #fossilfuel industry?

Thread /
@mayboeve @350 @Strike4Youth @sunrisemvmt We start by centering the fact that some people have more skin in the game than others. Climate action is always intertwined with inequality.

@presidencymv faces an existential crisis from climate change. Now we're talking extinction, refugees, rights, in ways we can't imagine.
@mayboeve @350 @Strike4Youth @sunrisemvmt @presidencymv @OoredooMaldives @visitmaldives @maldivescricket @350Australia @350action @billmckibben So in this context, facing the vested interest of the most powerful industry in the history of mankind, that thinks nothing of deceit, when do we stop being polite? When do we turn to confrontation?

If you were a journo or opinion editor trying to get better at reporting on #climate & #energy, what questions would you be asking?

Thread

@KetanJ0 @TennantReed @simonahac @dylanjmcconnell @craigmemery @SimonCorbell @OBenPotter @1MarijaPetkovic @miriamlyons
1/ If the article/writer claims a certain cost of acting on climate, does it also make claims about the cost of not acting on climate?
2/ If there are claims made about industry moving off shore, where will the industry go (since the majority of the world is acting on climate)?

I can’t wait for y’all to get to know @BetoORourke. Those of us here at Veterans for Beto were grassroots organizers for his Senate campaign last summer and fall. Those of us in our group know Beto as well as anyone, and our support for Beto has not wavered since the mid-term.
We’re #Texas #veterans, y’all. All of us wore the uniform (or were close to someone who did), we’re patriots, and we love Texas and our country. We’re also mostly pretty cynical about politics and politicians, which is why it’s remarkable how much we support @BetoORourke.
This veteran had never gotten off the couch to support any politician. But there I am, putting up road signs in September Texas heat. I personally knocked probably over 1,500 doors, and Vets for Beto thousands more. For @BetoORourke, I, and my colleagues, showed the fuck up.

I have found some amazing, surprising, and shocking things in my most recent installment of US patent searching.
This thread contains some of the most notable entries I've found so far.
#science #Tech #Medicine #Energy
#GreatAwakening
Artificial Gills for human beings.
No air, no tanks. Just a backpack sized device that filters available oxygen from surrounding seawater, and is connected directly to the diver's arterial and venous blood vessels. (Pic and description from actual patent filing)
Upon further inspection, I found that there is not only no information available on artificial gills of this type, but that the available info is quite insistent that artificial gill tech is unproven and unfeasible- even up to current times.
Patent filed in 2008.

Aboriginal communities powered by #solar. That's Unkle Ike's vision starting in his community in NSW.
Will you chip in a $100 tax deductible donation to the #re4bre crowdfunding campaign? bit.ly/2RVGgk6 Every dollar donated will go to installing solar and batteries.
Congratulations Uncle Ike, The Valley Centre, @pingala_sydney @MEFLnews @DICE for such a great initiative. These guys are creating a revolving fund so every $ donated, becomes the gift that keeps giving, enabling more and more Aboriginal communities to access #solar. #fairdinkum

If your #body becomes very pleasant we call it a #pleasure

If your #mind becomes pleasant, we call it peace; if it becomes very pleasant we call it a #joy

If your #emotions become pleasant we call it a #love; if they become very pleasant we call it #compassion
If your life #energies become pleasant we call it #bliss, and if they become very pleasant we call it #ecstasy

If your surroundings become pleasant, you call it #success
A #seeker on the path of #awareness knows that #Pleasure, #Peace, #Joy, #Love, #Compassion, #Bliss and #Ecstasy are all different states of #Body, #Mind and #Energy, not the achievement milestones you can #conquer in an external world.

Hi guys! @AtteHarjanne and me just published a paper "Abandoning the concept of #renewable #energy" at Energy Policy. In it, we argue that the concept of #renewableenergy (RE) is outdated. 1/

First, a link to the paper that should work until Feb 14:

sciencedirect.com/science/articl…
What we argue here is that using what is basically a 1970s-era definition of renewable energy, and conflating "renewable" with "sustainable" or even "clean," is becoming more a hindrance than a help in meeting the main challenge of the early 2000s - #climatechange . 2/
We argue that the concept of RE was largely set in stone well before the magnitude of #climate challenge, and actual problems with some sources that are technically renewable, was understood. This has resulted to, e.g., using the "renewable" label to cover all bioenergy. 3/

@RyanMKellogg Emissions of CO2 lead to global heating and therefore to untold damages bourne by future generations. Some economists, e.g. William Nordhaus, have used cost-benefit analysis to estimate a social cost of carbon, which then becomes a recommended carbon tax. /1

@GrumpyDaddd @Futureworldxxl Reality-Check: #Germany has 1% of the global population & wants to safe the #earth by charging among the higest #energy-prices on earth? Sounds more like a bunch of idiots allowing themselves to be ripped off big time!
#GreenEnergy #ClimateChange #Klimawandel - Part 1
@GrumpyDaddd @Futureworldxxl 2. At the same time Germans happily use their #iPhones, produced in #China by near slave-labour under conditions that are far from green.

German #Chemical companies happily produce in #Shaoxing, #China with a pollution (I have seen it) which takes your breath away! #Bayer #BASF
@GrumpyDaddd @Futureworldxxl 3. And the missionaries of #ClimateChange & #GreenEnergy, like @LeoDiCaprio, are the biggest jokes: Talking about climate change, but leaving a carbon foot-print the size of a village, with their #yachts, private #jets & several #villas with several servants! #ABigCon!

France presented today its #energy and #climate strategy. It has four goals:
1 - To cut #energy consumption
2 - To turn away from #fossilfuels
3 - To diversify its #energy mix
4 - To keep things affordable, increase jobs and innovate medias.businessimmo.com/default/0002/3…
The overall target of France's strategy for #energy and #climate is to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 through cutting GHG emissions down significantly and also increasing carbon sinks
France wants to cut #CO2 emissions down to 227 Mt in 10 years by cutting final #energy consumption 14% and primary #energy from #fossilfuels by 35%. Also, increasing #renewable heating and doubling the #electricity from renewables. Note: transport emissions vanish by 2050.

0/ Investors breathed easier today as the price of large-cap digital assets like #bitcoin [ $BTC ] and #ether [ $ETH ] managed to hold steady.

Whilst many were glued to the charts, I was trawling through the interwebs for the latest from the world of #crypto. You're welcome 😉
1/ 📣 Fresh from launching v1.1.3 of its #mainnet, @NULSservice [ $NULS ] detailed the design architecture of NULS 2.0 in the below 23-page paper.

Allows #NULS to be more than just the underlying infrastructure of the #blockchain. Many more uses to come! nuls.io/api/v1/downloa…
2/ ⛏️ @UbiqSmart [ $UBQ ] has successfully hard-forked to #Ubqhash.

Having done so, Ubiq is now decoupled from #Ethash and, thus, is no longer vulnerable to rental hash attacks. This marks the first time an #Ethereum fork has forked to a PoW mining algorithm.

0/ The #crypto and #blockchain space can get awfully noisy. Below, the bits that caught my eye over the past 24 hours or so.

21 events compressed into a humble #Twitter thread. Enjoy!
1/ 🙋‍♂️ @IOTAtoken [ $IOTA ] made hires #52 and #53 for 2018 via Andreas Penzkofer and William Sanders.

The former is an electrical engineer and physicist specializing in analytical and numerical methods. The latter, an academic focused on commutative algebra and category theory.
2/ 💡 Australian #blockchain startup @PowerLedger_io [ $POWR ] upped its presence in the U.S., announcing the deployment of its P2P renewable #energy trading platform at licensed retail electric provider @APowernet's Pennsylvania HQ.

0/ Such a full-on 24 hours for the #crypto/#blockchain space! When is it not?

Too much to take in? Fear not, I've got you covered, and have put together a thread of 24 events - one for each hour? (🤷‍♂️) - that caught my eye. Let's go!
1/ 🤝 @FantomFDN [ $FTM ] partnered with @Danfoss, a multi-billion-dollar #energy/#IoT manufacturer & service provider.

The Denmark-headquartered company will work w/ #Fantom to "explore the possibilities of accelerating the development of the microgrid." medium.com/fantomfoundati…
2/ 🆕 The @AERGO_io team published the mother of all blog posts. And why not! For it unveiled both the AERGO Chain Alpha & the AERGO pre-testnet.

Click through for more on their consensus algorithm (i.e., BFT-dPOS), Client SDK, and what's next for #AERGO. medium.com/aergo/releasin…

Why do we keep falling short on #carbon pricing? (And what to do about it)

A thread on how policy can accelerate the pace of progress towards a low-carbon #energy system commensurate with the threat posed by #climatechange...
Putting a price on carbon.

The IPCC report on holding global warming to 1.5°C released Sunday calls for it. A share of the Nobel in Economics was awarded to William Nordhaus this week for championing it. It's arguably the most efficient and powerful climate policy available.
So why do governments around the world keep falling short on carbon pricing, and how can break this logjam? I discussed these challenges with the @NYTimes @BradPlumer in an article appearing in yesterday's paper. nytimes.com/2018/10/08/cli…

Today much of the world's population lives safer, more comfortable, healthier, longer, more productive lives than ever before. And yet, around half of the global population currently lacks access to enough electricity, and 1.2bn people have no access at all. #IPCC 1/n
Global electricity access is rising, which is improving the lives of millions. But this means our decarbonisation challenge is even greater, since we not only have to replace our entire fossil fuel infrastructure, but probably double it to meet rising global energy demand. #IPCC
The question is where will this energy to come from? A: Right now, mainly from #coal. #IPCC

How Total is integrating #climate into its strategy?
1/6
We are positioned in fast-growing #lowcarbon markets, which means we offer an #energy mix whose carbon intensity is steadily decreasing.
2/6
In support of this change, we have created a tool for measuring the #carbon intensity of the #energy products we make available to our customers. That metric indicates the average of our products’ greenhouse gas emissions.

1/ Well, it's the first full week of the final month of the quarter. Know what that means? Time for my quarterly U.S. #Energy #Storage tweetstorm! As always, I'll be sharing highlights from WoodMackenzie P&R/ESA's report, the U.S. Energy Storage Monitor.
1a/ To be clear: WoodMackenzie Power & Renewables (P&R) is the new brand of the former GTM Research!
2/ Q2 2018 saw the U.S. market grow 42% QOQ to 61.8 MW! The behind-the-meter market accounted for 75% of MW deployed.

@cjjacobsJacobs @CDU @JuliaKloeckner @annewill 1. Various questions need to be asked:
a) Is the #earth getting warmer? Answer Yes (but was ven warmer in the past)
b) Human impact on climate (CO2)? A: Yes, but science differ on size of impact.
@cjjacobsJacobs @CDU @JuliaKloeckner @annewill 2.
c) #Germany produces 2% of all CO2 - So if we all live in tents tomorrow & only ride bicycles will it make a big difference? A: No, but the Chinese & Americans won't stop laughing!
#AnneWill #Klimawandel #ClimateChange
@cjjacobsJacobs @CDU @JuliaKloeckner @annewill 3.
So I like a debate on points a) to c) purely based on #science (and "a consensus of paid lobbyscientists" is not science, but politics) & come up with workable solutions.
PS: Currently #China produces around 26% of all man-made CO2.
