Why aren’t oil companies producing? They have 9,000 leases? A 🧵:

The average well costs about $10million in financing. Personnel and equipment. Legal. Compliance. EIS. Etc. That’s $10million before 1 drop of oil is even produced. Next:
The average well produces 21 barrels a day. Average- some do produce 10,000. Some produce 0. But we’ll stick with the average

22 x $120 = $2640 per day. Good money, right? Very good.

You’ve got $10 in debt. Next:
$963,600 is the annual gross for that well assuming 22 barrels consistent, no anomalies, etc…

How’s that $10million debt coming along? How many years to pay it off? Next.

Just as the #Ukraine crisis has been a wake-up call for societies that rely heavily on Russian energy exports and #FossilFuels generally, it also highlights another environmentally and geopolitically disastrous addiction: artificial fertilizers. A 🧵... 1/18
As @michaeltanchum notes, Russia is the world’s largest fertilizer exporter, meaning that "fertilizer represents one of the greatest vulnerabilities for both Europe and Africa."…
Modern agriculture is hooked on fertilizers. And not without reason: artificial fertilizers helped send crop yields exploding as the world's human population quadrupled over the past 100 years.

Join our 🇸🇪#Stockholm50 #PreSummit closing plenary:

@alexraf, Global diretor of @fossilfueltreaty and @MaryMoeonoKolio, Pacific Climate Warriors sharing the main ideas on the fossil fuel world we want to build together:
1/ @alexraf: We’ve heard across all of the panels that the risks of the FF industry are not only risks to our climate goals,we’ve heard about the ways that the FF industry risks our reliance with nature from communities in the Amazon facing continuing logic of the colonizers
2/ @alexraf: the risk of climate extraction is not only to the local community, it’s also to the overall structure of our political economy, and our culture.

🇺🇦Svitlana Romanko #StandWithUkraine
🇨🇲Sylvie Ndongmo @WILPF
🇺🇸Joni Seager from Bentley University
🇸🇪@BeaFihn from @nuclearban

1/ Svitlana Romanko #StandWithUkraine: The war in Ukraine is not another war. Russia is a threat with high #FossilFuel resources that could be weaponized & used also against other countries.

The #FossilFuelTreaty provides the missing mechanism to phase-out fossil fuel and HOPE!
2/ Sylvie Ndongmo @WILPF, Cameroon: first of all, i am not in #Stockholm50 in person bec I could not get a visa. I was requested to travel to RDC or Nigeria to get a visa which is another example of inequalities and colonial power.

🇸🇪#Stockholm50 #PreSummit is officially starting!

Today, a diversity of voices from around the world are going to discuss how we can work together to realize a global clean, fair and fast energy transition.

Join our opening plenary:

@Tzeporah: on behalf of the #FossilFuelTreaty, I would like to welcome you to this #PreSummit, co-hosted with the @StanleyConnect & @nordenen.

Support for the #FossilFuelTreaty idea is growing and today, we are going to deepen our strategic discussions with key diverse voices.
2/ @Tzeporah: in the last 50 y there have been significant moments of international cooperation to manage threats to our planet — from a nuclear ban treaty, to global cooperation to save the ozone, and recently, the UN decided to create the world's first global plastics treaty.

Our new modelling report from @DavidSuzukiFDN shows that 100% zero-emissions electricity across Canada by 2035 is possible, reliable and affordable.

Buckle up for a #CleanElectricity thread 🧵…

#Climate #energytwitter #cdnpoli
This is the first modelling report of its kind in Canada. It goes beyond #NetZero to reach #ZeroEmissions by 2035, primarily by relying on:

☀️#Renewables like wind & solar
🌊Existing #Hydropower
🔌More grid connections between regions
Overall, Canada's electricity capacity grows by 2.8x by 2050, and the amount of electrical energy we use grows by 1.8x

All #FossilFuels on the grid are phased out by 2035, including all #NaturalGas. And no nuclear or fossils with #CCUS are needed.

@Bellona_EU @ClimateBonds @andytuit there's a lot of #greenwashing in the financial industry, this is why there's the need for a taxonomy, says @ph_lamberts starting his speech

#fossilgas #fossilfuels #climatecrisis #climatefinance #greenfinance #sustainablefinance @GreensEFA
@Bellona_EU @ClimateBonds @andytuit @ph_lamberts @GreensEFA we need to block the CDA-Climate Delegated Act because we want a label that is reliable, we need reliable market infos, if we include gas and nuclear we're distorting the market, says @ph_lamberts

BLOG: The #EU's scramble to get off #Russian #FossilFuels highlights the perils of a fossil-based economy: fossil gas hardest to eliminate. We debunk the claim that #gas is a ‘bridge fuel’ & show global gas consumption must rapidly decline. 🧵/2
Despite the clear message that gas demand shld already be in rapid decline, its use in many economies continues to increase. Since 2015, a total of 14 G20 countries have seen an upward trend in gas’s share of primary energy supply, w particularly steep rises in North America. /3
Fossil #gas production is largely concentrated in two countries - #Russia and the #US - who together produce about 40% of dry natural gas. Some countries like the US and Australia have increased their production in the last decade. /4

🌍 Our 2022 #Science Board Symposium on "The #Emergent #PoliticalEconomy or #ClimateChange" kicks off with opening remarks from President David Krakauer.

Follow this 🧵 as we provide live coverage of this event all day...
"For those of you who think behavior change can prevent #ClimateChange...behavior WILL change when climate changes. Shutdowns from the pandemic resulted in a reduction of #C02 emissions of about 7.5%."
- SFI/@Harvard Prof Dan Schrag opens our speaker series today
"We *used* to talk about #ClimateChange used to be something that would happen to people in Bangladesh fifty years from now."

Re: #ClimateJustice,
"Children born today are going to deal with climate change they had no role in causing."

‼️ NEW ‼️

Analysis from @ciel_tweets & @boell_stiftung: "#IPCC Unsummarized: Unmasking Clear Warnings on Overshoot, Techno-fixes, and the Urgency of Climate Justice" ➡️…

Key takeaways in this thread 🧵👇
Early this month, the @IPCC_CH published the Contributions of Working Group III to the Sixth Assessment Report.

The subject? Mitigation of #ClimateChange.

#IPCC #ClimateReport #ActOnClimate
Like previous #IPCC Reports, this one demonstrates:
🚩#ClimateChange is a present emergency
🚩Each increment of warming accelerates the scale & severity of the crisis
🚩Phasing out ALL #FossilFuels is the quickest & most effective way to end #ClimateChaos.…

We're in a Climate & Ecological Crisis, Sixth Mass Extinction, a threat to us all. Fossil fuels, though they account for over 80% of carbon emissions produced by humans, continue to be widely used. That's massively destabilising our biosphere, yet our Parliament says/does nothing Image

1) Keep hearing consumers are addicted to fossil fuels. F no we aren't. We've been forced to drive fossil fueled cars for 50 yrs when if we'd stopped oil oligarchs from blocking & undermining new non-fossil fuel technology so that hybrid/elec vehicles would've emerged back then
2) made cheaply & used by everyone & we wouldn’t be
looking at the imminent death of the planet right now. We wouldn’t care how much oil Putin had b/c it would be worthless. No we had to insure that Shell, Arco, BP etc etc kept making their enormous profits. They weren’t EVER
3) going to allow that. Fossil fuels are a symptom of what’s really killing this planet: Fn human greed & selfishness is the underlying problem. #FossilFuels @threadreaderapp unroll

As French citizens get ready to vote this weekend, with polls indicating a tighter-than-expected race, it’s timely to revisit the ongoing 🇫🇷 Presidency of the EU Council #PFUE, Macron’s record, and the toxic background of his far-right opponent...

👀🧵👇 Image
#UndertheInfluence written w/ @transnationales showed how #PFUE was prepared in collaboration w/ 🇫🇷 corporate sector & has policy agenda reflecting business demands.

Privileged access, revolving doors, corporate sponsorship helped give industry upper hand
Macron strategy to use #PFUE quick-wins to help election has not worked, partly due to appalling 🇷🇺 invasion of 🇺🇦

But 🇫🇷 has not played cards well. OECD corporate tax file might have been a win but, despite making file even weaker, 🇵🇱 veto means no deal

The IPCC is crystal clear:

We must end #fossilfuel development and rapidly scale up the low carbon economy. The world’s best scientists have the ‘tools and the know-how’ to safeguard our future. The factor we are missing is political will. 1/ #bcpoli…
Last week in the #BCLeg the @bcndp & @bcliberals MLAs debated a motion on the #LNG industry.

It was a shameful competition as they tried to out-spin one another in their support for fossil fuel subsidies. 2/ #bcpoli #ClimateCrisis
Under the @bcndp BC’s #oilandgas subsidies have gone up year over year.

BC deserves a gov't that recognizes the reality of the #ClimateEmergency. To build a sustainable, resilient economy we must stop subsidizing the industries that work against it. 3/ #bcpoli #ClimateCrisis
