Rispondere alla leggitima domanda: “Perche’ non possiamo usare solamente rinnovabili in futuro?”

Un thread (lungo, chiedo perdono in anticipo) per dare la mia opinione a riguardo.
1/n
Intanto per "rinnovabili" qui mi riferirò a idrico, solare, e eolico. Escludo geotermico, moto ondoso etc. perche’ le tecnologie adiacenti o le risorse necessarie sono ad una scala troppo piccola per giocare un ruolo rilevante, a livello globale, da qui al 2030/2050.
2/n
E parlero’ con una prospettiva globale, in quanto a livello regionale le cose possono cambiare significativamente (enorme capacita’ idrica in Brasile o di vento in Danimarca), ma il problema della transizione e’ globale e’ come tale va analizzato.

دافغانستان داسلامی امارت لمړۍ کلیزه او دامرییکه شکست دې ټولو افغانانو ته مبارک!
غواړم هاغه خاطرات ولیکمه چې پروسږ کال دطالبانو راتګ سره په کابل کې مونږ کابل میشت څه تاثرات درلود.
پروسږکال جون/جولای زما د ژوند تر ټولو تریخی، دخفګان،زیار او سټړتیا ډکې ورځی وې..

تلویزیون یا خبرونو نه خبر نه ومه، انترنت صحیح سګنال هم نه درلود، خو که انترنت به مې کاروله هم یوازی به می څو دقیقی د ناروغ ضرورت متعلق کله کاروله، خو پوهیدمه چې حالات ښه نه ول، او د یرغلګرو د مخ تورې ورکیدو لپاره مې همدې حالت کې هم ډیرې دعاګانې کولې،

Alyn Smith should have added the IEA is a lobby group masquerading as a thinktank (and an “educational charity”) which is renowned for dangling access to ministers in front of donors. Emily Carver’s “how boring” response was, frankly, pathetic. #bbcqt
Here is footage showing IEA director general Mark Littlewood offering potential donors (actually undercover reporters for @UE) access to government ministers in 2019 (I got his name wrong in the original tweet).
If you’re interested in finding out more about the origins and goals of the Institute of Economic Affairs ⁠— a neoliberal lobbying organisation that masquerades as a “thinktank” ⁠— this blog by Adam Curtis should be your starting point. #IEA bbc.co.uk/blogs/adamcurt…

Influential thinktank the Global Warming Policy Foundation has led the backlash against the UK net zero policy & despite always claiming it is independent of the fossil fuel industry, has received funding from groups with oil & gas interests.
theguardian.com/environment/20…
I understand that Neil Record, Chair of the #IEA - imho the most dangerously destructive of the antidemocratic Tufton St think tanks in Britain today - sits on the board of climate science denial campaign group, the Global Warming Policy Forum.
And the fact that even in the midst of a #CostOfLivingCrisis, 99% of UK voters are blissfully unaware of Tufton Street or 'The Nine Entities' shows how ineffective & biased our so-called 'news' media is at informing audiences about the operation of power.

#Taliban had over 6 months time to prepare "a comprehensive plan", but in my opinion, they are using girls education as bargaining chip for recognition.

As part of the #houseTohouse_search in #Afghanistan 1.5-2 wks ago our house was also searched by #Taliban/the #IEA Sec forces in Kabul (I think ministry of Defense forces). A female police accompanied them as well as our masjid's Imam, area's municipality rep & district rep.1/12
The search took <10 mins.The female police entered first, politely greeted us & requested the females stay n 1 room. She was from republic's time but in full hijab & a mask on her face. She didnt search anything but let her male colleagues know which room the females were at.2/12
So we didn't even see the male security personnel. We had our money, jewelry, electronics (phones, computers, etc) in the rooms (visible to the naked eyes), one or two unused military uniforms in their usual accessible place. But they didn't even touch any of these. 3/12

"If fiscal packages are invested in carbon-intensive technologies and traditional fossil fuel-based infrastructure, this will bring huge lock-in effects on emissions."

In the 386 report on the metal road to the full #digitalization of the global economy & societies, not a single word about data centers. #Electricity for data centers is to increase 15-fold by 2030 representing 8-11% global demand. In one scenario, global demand could reach 20%.
In a worst-case scenario, it is suggested that communication technologies (#CT) could use as much as 51% of global #electricity by 2030. In this scenario, "CT electricity usage could contribute up to 23% of the globally released GHG emissions in 2030". [Anders Andrae] #COP26
