Echoing all the canards of the past 100 years, #BorisJohnson will now take Britain down the path of borrowing artificially cheap funds to plough into make-work projects and undertakings of dubious efficiency and elusive real return. Here is a #Conservative government..

#WorldEnvironmentDay2020 we bring you the story of #Mumbai's only #botanicalgarden, one of its most important environmental assets. Read the thread to know more about the founding of this important #green lung which was established together with #BDLMuseum in late 19th century
The Veermata Jijabai Bhonsale Udyan, formerly known as Victoria Gardens, was established with the #BDLMuseum as it's sister institution, enabling each other as "a Hall of Wonder and a Garden of Delight".
#WorldEnvironmentDay2020 @mybmc #botanicalgarden
A group of #Mumbai's eminent citizens- Dr. Bhau Daji Lad, #DavidSassoon, #JamsetjeeJeejeebhoy, and Sir #GeorgeBirdwood, later curator of the #BDLMuseum, decided to establish a botanical garden and a museum to study the #flora, #fauna and #culture of the Bombay Presidency.

Modern politicians match Talleyrand’s jibe that “The Bourbons have forgotten nothing and learned nothing”
Having needlessly crashed the economy, they now presume to rescue it with New Deals, Bridges-to-Nowhere, #Green boondoggles & ‘shovel-ready’ jobs.
Bwah-ha-ha!
#COVID19
So, let’s repeat the errors of the 30s; let’s kowtow to the #Climate lobby; let’s ignore #Japan’s three decades of ‘infrastructure’ failure (#China’s more recent efforts, too); and, risibly, let’s echo #Obama’s corrupted & ineffective ‘shovel-ready’ nonsense of 2008.
If the word’s “collective effort” do not strike fear into your heart and the bland appeal to a “post-#COVID” world do not dismay you, you are sleep-walking through the camp gates - behind whose thin overlay of mock-Pugin wallpaper lies the usual tangle of barbed wire.

Climbing out of the woodwork are all the usual Malthusian birds of ill-omen, seeking to harness today's justifiable pessimism to their #Green bandwagon and so exploit the disorientation of a people too shell-shocked to fully realise the extent of what has been taken from them

"We are at the #tippingpoint," many will intone and so must adapt to their Dystopian visions of a #NewNormal - a permanent State of Fear in which life will henceforth be anything BUT 'normal'.

In truth, the only 'Tipping Point' which gives genuine cause for concern - being a palpable one and not a politically-motivated, computer-modelled phantasm - is that which has cast us into this Kafkaesque Hell of Camp #Corona...

People trying to draw analogies with the #GreatDepression, wartime, or 70s stagflation are missing the point IMHO 1/x
GD was a ‘sudden-stop’ shock which ended the credit-boom lending to Weimar as the Young Plan looked in jeopardy. Made worse by politics (war debts, etc), #protectionism (Smoot-Hawley), Hoover call to maintain wage-rates, #FX chaos (esp. when Brits left #gold standard) 2/x
The initial slump & ‘secondary (financial vicious cycle) depression’ then perpetuated by #NewDeal boondoggle vote-buying, #FDR capriciousness, & Brain Trust cranks. This was much more a post-#GFC parallel than today’s #ContaminoBay #lockdown 3/x

The whole point of the ‘market’ -as we #Asutrians have been telling you for over a century- is that the prices formed by the countless interactions of our teeming humanity convey info of the best possible quality to help co-ordinate the most fruitful use of scarce resources 1/x
- the greater the nodes on that market network; the more individual needs and preferences expressed upon it, the better the solutions: the more enriched the ‘spontaneous order’ it throws up.
The scrambling of price signals by state lever-pullers is one evil we often discuss - 2/x
- what we don’t address often enough in financial markets (theoretically possessed of the densest and most widespread, most rapid, most frictionless networks of all) is the deadening effect of overconcentration and the move to oligopoly under which we are now suffering - 3/x

All of whom seek to SILENCE debate in our democracy.

Freedom for people who disagree with us as well as for our supporters.

Freedom for minorities as well as for majorities."
@ConversationEDU @abcnews @QandA @slpng_giants_oz "All things considered, the worst crime of #Fascism and its twin brother, German National #Socialism, is their suppression of #FreeThought & #FreeSpeech.

It is one of the many proofs that, with all their cleverness, they are primitive & reactionary movements."

#ReinventingCities è tra i progetti di #C40cities, network globale di città che fanno della sostenibilità uno strumento di marketing territoriale. Gli esiti delle 5 aree di #Milano interessate stanno uscendo in queste ore e in Comune già si festeggia, diamo uno sguardo?
Prima di procedere è bene ricordare che stiamo parlando di valorizzazione di aree pubbliche: in altre parole dietro #resilienza e sensibilità #green si cela l'apertura di bandi per la #privatizzazione di pezzi di città, parzialmente vincolati.
Un es?
Nel merito per lo #ScaloGreco vince Invesitre SGR, alla guida di una cordata che include uno sponsor di...#C40 (sul tema l'Advisor to Deputy Mayor potrebbe aiutarci a capire). Il tutto con housing sociale su aree demaniali rilevate da sistemi urbani dopo la privatizzazione di fs.

What EXACTLY happened in Newport West?

1. A, in 2016, staunch Leave seat voted in a Labour #PeoplesVote campainer as MP
2. UKIP vote increase was less than the Tory loss
3. Biggest gain was minor anti #Brexit parties - #Green, #Renew, #PC, #LibDems

& thats in a Leave seat....
In other words:

Delay/2nd ref likely to be more dangerous to Tories than Labour.
Danger to Labour is if anti #brexit is concentrated outside of Labour.

Remain thus becomes a vote winner even in Leave constituencies...
...but only if Labour takes lead & doesnt split remain vote.
Its increasingly clear that #Brexit is actually an oppotunity for Labour.
There will (always has been) 10-15% brexit vote, but Labour shouldnt fear this. A tory party obsessed with EU will split/demotivate their vote - Labour just needs to be the remain party & its a home run.

1/8 My favorite #quote by #JosephStalin, which explains the scientific, #DialecticalMaterialist explanation of true freedom in material reality, not just as an abstract ideal. #StalinIsBack #StalinLives #JVStalin #Stalin #StalinQuote #StalinQuotes #Truth #MELS #MarxismLeninism
2/8 Having an #objective, #rational, #ScientificSocialist, #Dialectical, & #Materialist viewpoint allows us to accurately see & evaluate & analyze #Truth & #Reality as they truly materially exist in this universe.
3/8 An idealistic, dogmatic viewpoint, which capitalists have, however, makes one irrational enough to 'see' freedom where freedom stays trapped on a piece of paper while people are oppressed in their actual lived lives.

The western US has been on fire for weeks, with unbreathable air confining people to their homes and keeping some from getting out on a bike. In other parts of the world it’s straight-up car pollution doing the same. We’re going to CLEAR THE AIR with #bikeschool #bikes4climate.
We’re heading toward Global #ClimateAction Week so you’ll see that hashtag + #bikes4climate tonight along with #bikeschool.
My hot take: Too many discussions under headlines with words like #sustainability or #climate or #green ignore bikes as clean transport.
****Q1: How have forest fires, pollution, other air quality issues affected your bicycling? Fun fact (h/t @andrealearned): Bikes invented as tool due to volcano eruption pollution. See buff.ly/2LEP6vi by @lloydalter. #bikeschool #bikes4climate #ClimateAction #bikehistory

#Venus has strong associations with bubbles, because they bring joy, pleasure, and excitement, and are frequently used to mark happy occasions.
They are a literal representation of #effervescence, which is a #Venusian feature, and are often paired with #sugar (ruled by Venus), as in #soda, or used in #alcoholic beverages, which reduce social inhibitions and can stir the libidinal instincts.
For those reasons, #Venus is associated with #champagne, mineral water, and #bubbly drinks of all variety. They, along with #greentea, make great Venus #offerings.

#Hydrogen #FCEV vehicles are very unlikely to become any kind of transport solution because they just don't make environmental or economic sense when compared to battery electric vehicles. #BEV
Hydrogen itself is just another fossil fuel as almost all of it is made from natural gas with carbon emissions as a significant byproduct. So the basic premise of the #FCEV is destroyed right there because it's just another fossil fuel car and not #Green at all.
The only other significant means of production is electrolysis which accounts for only 4% of all commercially available hydrogen fuel. It's used for only this tiny amount of production because it's massively inefficient, throwing away up to 75% of the electrical energy input.

If you want to play along, here is the actual Full Text of Tax Plan aka #GOPTaxScam I am going to start reading and commenting follow if you want thread 1/? docs.house.gov/billsthisweek/…
If you acquire a new home, you can only deduct $750,000 in interest, compared to $1,000,000.00 before. This could impact many homes in California, NY, and in a lot of urban areas that vote Democrat. #TrumpTax Plan 2/?
The #StudentLoan interest deduction will remain. Because they did not repeal all of the #EstateTax they just raised the exemption from 5 million to 10 million. #GOPTaxPlan 3/?
