❗️ This is huge: 🇺🇦 Ambassador in 🇩🇪 @MelnykAndrij turns to @Europarl_EN and voices strong concerns about the #EUTaxonomy proposal to label #gas as #green.

👉 He says it's clear #Russia will profit through the Act, and speaks of a "fatal signal" to 🇺🇦. A 🧵 1/6
@MelnykAndrij @Europarl_EN @LudekNie @Urmaspaet @ijabs @nicustefanuta @KGroselj @guyverhofstadt @LeszekMiller @Andi_Glueck @susanasolisp @hildevautmans .@MelnykAndrij has been one of #Germany's most vocal voices to push the 🇩🇪 government towards more help for #Ukraine.

In his letter, he thanks MEP @ViolavonCramon for supporting sanctions on 🇷🇺 #energy, given 🇷🇺 "considerable income through sale of #naturalgas" to the #EU. 2/6
Melnyk cites the #Russian energy minister who said that 🇷🇺 gas industry sees a "range of opportunities" through the #EUTaxonomy, while #LNG terminals are excluded. Its conditions thus "clearly favour #Russian #gas." @ijabs @CiolosDacian 3/6

What a historic vote in the European Parliament! Polluters will pay and citizens are subsidised for climate change mitigation.

This week we’ve decided on the elements of the #climate package that will reduce the burden of the #green transition on the public. 1/7
#FitFor55
With the legislation adopted, we’ve finally managed to reconcile the two key climate policy principles: from now on, the polluter pays and the citizens will receive adequate support for the green transition. 2/7
Under the new system, the public will benefit from direct and indirect financial support from the fees paid by the big polluters.

The EU is supporting people to achieve a #climate-neutral lifestyle in a variety of ways: 3/7

New issue! We have just released an #openaccess collection focused on new urban forestry approaches and concepts for city #planning.

The issue was edited by @Dr_alessiorusso and Francisco J. Escobedo and is available here: bit.ly/3t7xOjg

What has the issue found? 🧵👇
1/ One of the priorities for cities is to provide equal access to healthy #food & lifestyles.#Urban food forests can contribute, but + effort is needed to identify the most effective mosaics of “#green” land uses. bit.ly/3PNrhE3

@FAOForestry @sim1borelli @botanicaUGR
2/ The inclusion of edible species in urban forest stands can enhance nutrition and #wellbeing in the urban landscape, where food deserts are common. bit.ly/3GwWbfC

For all the blithe talk about #EnergyTransition, the blunt truth is that civilisation runs on hydrocarbons. Remove the latter and the former falls, too.

Even the food we eat requires them. We have not improved the living standards of all our teeming billions on the quasi-Neolithic methods of farming so beloved of the ignorant #Green metromarxists.

War, Haunted Pasts, Historical Debts, and Arrogance

A good argument is irresistible. Especially a bitterly-fought one replete with personal attacks, which, although it might be a little uncomfortable to watch at times, . . . a 🧵 1/
#AnneWill #Germany #Ukraine #MelnykAndrij
is much like the proverbial train wreck, impossible not to watch.

What about an argument about life and death, or guilt and obligations, or the fundamental value of human life? An attention-getting event, certainly. More on that in a moment. 2/
The Ukraine war has thrown harsh light on many faulty and dysfunctional notions about how to deal with international conflicts. Nowhere is this more true than Germany, where the “peace through trade with Russia” policy of and yes, Merkel, turned out to be an utter disaster. 3/

🌍 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."

.@amitabhk87: The financial architecture wasn’t designed for #climatechange. There is a vast amount of capital available for climate change, but it will flow in when the risks are mitigated. For risks to be mitigated the financial architecture needs to be altered.

Quindi, ad oggi, la strategia economica dell’Italia si basa su

1) #PNRR con moltiplicatore 0.9, minore di 1 = debito senza crescita. Come dice lo stesso #Draghi, debito cattivo, senza alcun progetto di rilancio sistemico del Paese
2) Minacciamo #Sanzioni sul #gas #Russia senza avere alternative immediate, quindi facciamo aumentare il prezzo e continuiamo a pagare ed, indirettamente, finanziamo la guerra in #Ucraina
3) Nessuna strategia per rafforzare #Export, unica componente dell economia che tiene a galla il #PIL. Ne, nel dettaglio, una strategia di penetrazione di #Asia e #Africa, uniche aree che cresceranno nei prossimi anni

The German greens, #DieGrune, wanted to abandon #Nuclear power because they were worried about a tiny amount of nuclear waste or unlikely nuclear accidents.

As a result, they have emboldened #Russia and they may well get a very real and serious 750kT Russian warhead ...
Indeed, some European #Green parties may even be funded by Russia. It makes sense: renewable energy sources like wind and solar are not capable of providing enough power consistently, so they require Russian natural gas.

#Uranium and #Thorium are available all over the world: Uranium is in seawater and Thorium is a common element found in rocks all over the world.

Europe could power itself using #Nuclear reactors and using high-temperature reactors we could even make synthetic fossil fuels.

1/ On the "energy transition" and geoeconomics:
My experience, including e.g. lobbying for #electrification of #transport before it was cool, is that govts prefer the path of least resistance, which helps the incumbent #oil and #gas industry.
2/ So what you get is a compromise of #green policy goals (lower CO2, but not too fast, plus nuclear exit), slow-exiting of #oil and increase in #gas (good for incumbent industry), promotion of #hydrogen (helps gas industry survive), and of course #Russia.
3/ Liberal economic principles, and foreign policy idealism, are brought in just in time to prevent heavy geoeconomic measures to cut dependence on Russia. And so, Europe will do a slow energy transition with Russia guaranteed major benefits for the next few decades.

Let's roll the sequence of Event and Why #ShivSena was formed... Who was the brain behind foundation of #ShivSena. From a cartoonist to #HaftaKhori and #HaftaKhori to Political Blackmailing and from Political Blackmailing to Forming a Party..
On 11 Jan 1966, On unfortunate day We lost our PM Lal Bahadur Shashtri Ji in #tashkent ( still not known ). The PM who gave the slogan, "जय जवान जय किसान" and made Pakistan kneel down on Knees in 1965. Think who benefited from his demise...
After the unfortunate demise of #ShashtriJi, on 24 January 1966 #IndiraFerozKhan was sworn in as Prime Minister of India.

Now the political scenario :-

1- Congress as ruling party but popularity declining.

2- Communist as a major opposition but behind the curtain Dating Cong

Nichts ist #green an der #Atomkraft. Vor 21 Jahren haben wir die Debatte darum in einem großen gesellschaftlichen Konsens aufgelöst und den Ausstieg aus dieser brandgefährlichen, weder wirtschaftlichen noch nachhaltigen Technologie beschlossen.

Und das war auch gut so.
In den 80er Jahren habe ich mit vielen anderen gegen #Atomkraft demonstriert. Zu hoch die #Subventionen, zu groß die Gefahr eines #Reaktorunfall|s - und dazu trieb uns vor allem die ungelöste und im Grunde unlösbare #Endlagerung des radioaktiven Mülls um und auf die Straßen.
Nichts davon hat sich geändert. Atomstrom ist immer noch der teuerste Strom. Wenn wir ihn subventionieren, wie in der EU jetzt angedacht, dann schädigt das den Markt für die Erneuerbaren - das haben wir mit dem Atomkraft-Revival der Merkel-Regierung in 2010 doch deutlich gesehen.

#Germany 🇩🇪 is overpaying for #climateprotection by 183 bln USD or 4.5 percent of #GDP. 📉🌍 @BjornLomborg #FalseAlarm #climate #economy /1
How can I argue this? First, I took #Germany's long-term #GDP forecast up to 2060 by the #OECD (2020-2050, in USD, dark blue line). /2
Then I corrected this #GDP #growth forecast with #Germany's expected average annual expenditures for climate protection estimated by the #KfW (ca. 5.2 percent of GDP annually!, green line). /3
