Activists urge #tobacco-style curbs on oil and gas #lobbying in EU

politico.eu/article/tobacc


A thread 👇
Some NGOs, emboldened by a @WHO approach towards meetings with #tobacco lobbyists (@FCTCofficial art. 5.3), now want the #EU to shut the door to legitimate #lobbying by coal, #oil and gas lobbyists, too. What’s next? Every corporate lobbyist? #SlipperySlope?
Several reasons why this nonsensical: first, very few #NGOs or public officials have the deep expertise in energy markets that energy companies do. Excluding them from the process would sideline relevant legal #stakeholders who are affected by the proposed legislative changes.

Tout sur la bio publie une liste dans laquelle on retrouve en vrac
- la chlorophylle et la cellulose
- des vitamines
- des acides aminés
- le magnésium, le sel & le sucre...
Bref, des constituants tout ce qu'il y a de plus naturels présents, heureusement, dans l'#Alimentation
Manipuler la peur de la chimie c'est devenu un sport pour le #lobby bio, malgré son ineptie ! Car tout est chimique !
Dresser une liste de produits chimiques est donc facile
Voici par exemple la liste des constituants des fraises, grains de cafĂ©, cerises & pĂȘches, 100% naturels

What if I told you that #BigTech and #SocialMedia platforms are manipulating you, steering you toward #Health information that they think is right, rather than letting you evaluate content for yourself?

Commentary by @MaryamHenein (Thread 👇) theepochtimes.com/google-censors

Accredited professionals, meanwhile, who stand for #Health freedom and who criticize Big Anything, are losing posting privileges, getting banned, being buried, finding themselves deranked, and getting digitally assassinated.
Content is literally disappearing from the Internet along with our #Health choices.

It sounds conspiratorial because it is. Independent #Journalists and health experts are blowing the whistle. But it’s become a silent one.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who finds @joswinson an irritating and entirely disingenuous politician. Her attack lines make a *lot more sense when you review who funds her... independence.ws/who-funds-jo-s
 #NeoliberalDemocrats #KPMG
@joswinson Let's take Melissa Geiger of #KPMG who donates to @joswinson's office

Melissa is a Partner and Head of International Tax and Tax Policy for KPMG in the UK home.kpmg/uk/en/home/con

@joswinson @atulkshah @premnsikka @rbrooks45 @RichardJMurphy @PeoplesAudit Then there's @joswinson donor - Michelle Quest, also of #KPMG - a corp tax kingpin of the global 'tax planning' [read #taxavoidance] industry. These people clearly have a *lot to lose if a Labour Govt crack down on London's pinstripe accounting mafia...

Fin de la pause twitter, ça fait du bien un petit moment
sans #fakenews. Donc pour résumer :
1 - Ă©valuation des #dangers
2 - caractérisation des #dangers
3 – Ă©valuation des exposition(on en est lĂ )
4 – Ă©valuation des risques.

Une pétition a été lancée pour demander que l'@AssembleeNat retire une oeuvre du peintre Hervé Di Rosa car elle serait "#raciste".

Le nombre de signatures est pour le moment anecdotique.
L'histoire de cette Ă©niĂšme indignation sur commande l'est beaucoup moins.

#Thread —
L'oeuvre en question fait partie d'une commande publique de 1991 qui en comprend 13, collectivement intitulées "Histoire en peinture de l'Assemblée Nationale".
En total, 40 mÚtres de laque sur toile pour illustrer 13 dates-clés.
On a par exemple le droit syndical de 1884, l'Alsace-Lorraine de 1918 ou la décentralisation de 1981...

Bon je m'y colle. Mais je ne vais pas y passer des heures, j'ai mal dormi 😀 @SciencesPoulet
@AntBerranger @emma_ducros @agritof80 et aux autres. Petit rappels sur le #glyphosate.
Préliminaire : mes tweets n'engagent que mon opinion personnelle. Ceci étant dit, jevais commencer par une petite présentation pour ceux qui auraient la flemme d'aller voir mon profil sur #LinkedIn. Je n'ai pas de pseudo et c'est volontaire.

1/5: EU notification procedure directive is stuck in trilogue because the Commission insists on sweeping new powers to control local decision-making re services. New research reveals Commission's flawed, deeply biased process for preparing the directive corporateeurope.org/power-lobbies/

Ca fait quatre ans que je bosse sur le lobbying (Ă  Bruxelles surtout). Et dĂ©solĂ©, GreenPeace reprĂ©sente des intĂ©rĂȘts, et donc font du lobbying.
Voici la dĂ©finition donnĂ©e de la reprĂ©sentation d'intĂ©rĂȘts selon la Haute AutoritĂ© pour la Transparence de la Vie Publique hatvp.fr/wordpress/wp-c

MĂȘme chose pour le registre de transparence europĂ©en oĂč la reprĂ©sentation d'intĂ©rĂȘts est d'essayer d'influencer directement ou indirectement la dĂ©cision publique. eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/

The #NRA is a powerful functioning arms industry #lobby masquerading as a 501(c)4 #nonprofit membership organization, claiming to educate the public about the interests of its members. Here’s why we need to stop this lie and strip it of nonprofit status:
If you do the math, with 5 million members x $40 annual dues, the #NRA should have an annual budget of about $200 million dollars as a membership organization.
However, the NRA'S total budget was over $400 million in 2016 because more than half of its budget comes from individual and corporate contributions and selling advertising in publications and events.
