Warum die #Grünen jetzt unbedingt gewinnen müssen: Die #Klimapanik ist nicht mehr steigerungsfähig. Mehr als den Untergang beschwören geht nicht. Nutzen sie jetzt den Trend nicht, platzt die Blase und das wars dann.
Forsa, der #ÖRR und die #MSN wissen das.
Darum das alles.
Die Propagandamaschinerie läuft auf Hochtouren. Neuwahlen werden herbeigeredet. Die Machtübernahme muss jetzt gelingen. In spätestens 1/2 Jahr ist die #Klimakrise vergessen. Der Winter eignet sich nicht, Panik vor Hitze zu schüren.
Jetzt muss das Ermächtigungsgesetz gelingen!
Da #Klima fragt nicht nach #Demokratie, nach Recht und Gesetz. Der Hype ist heute. Heute, den heißesten #Dürresommer aller Zeiten vor Augen, sind die Deutschen bereit, Wohlstand und Demokratie für das Linsengericht #Klimaschutz zu verkaufen und die #Ökodiktatur zu wählen.

Food for thought for Washington policymakers regarding a U turn in Mexican relations with the US. In a new poll conducted by Mexico City newspaper @ElFinanciero_Mx over this past weekend, 54% of those polled do not support #Mexico bending the knee to Trump’s ultimatum... 1/3
..regarding Central American #migration. 57% want #Mexico to retaliate with tariffs and 59% think Mexico should walk away from the trade relationship with the US and seek other partners like China. Only 16% of those polled have a favorable view of Mexico-US ties. 2/3
Regardless of how this story ends, Trump could scupper US-Mexico relations and lose #Mexico as a strategic partner and ally. Here’s the poll published today (in Spa)… 3/3

Wie die #Europawahl2019 zeigt reicht das für einen harten Kern (um die 10%, größer im Osten), aber auf dauer reicht das nicht!

Die #AfD hat viele Arbeiter, Polizisten und Protestwähler, die vorher soziale Parteien gewählt haben.

Die #AfD scheint aber Angst zu habe soziale Themen wirklich ernsthaft anzugehen.

Warum? Weil man einen Clash fürchtet zwischen "rechten Liberalen"(#Meuthen, #VonStorch) und "rechten Sozialen"(vorallem im Osten).

It’s often said that Scotland’s greatest export has been her people.

The term "New Scots" was primarily used to describe people of any background who have immigrated to Scotland since the 1945 as modern immigrants. #migration #history
According to a study that was conducted in Scotland back in 2014, ethnic diversity was growing, with the report finding that one in six Scottish households contained two or more multi-ethnic nationalities. #diversity
There has also been a rise in international cuisine in Scotland with more and more varieties of different restaurants serving up Middle Eastern, Polish, Spanish, Chinese, Italian, Thai, Greek, Japanese, Iranian and Turkish foods.

Stoked to announce @ZooKeys_Journal published our @BatumiRaptors data paper! It explains how our #citizenscience project monitors the autumn #migration of >1.000.000 #raptors in the Eastern Black Sea Flyway, and how to use our #openaccess data @GBIF/@NLBIF! - 1/n

Many #raptors migrate primarily by thermal #soaring. To do so they travel by day and avoid high mtns and open sea. This leads to spectacular raptor aggregations in overland #flyways. One of the world´s largest raptor flyways occurs along the eastern Black Sea coast in SW Georgia.
The Eastern Black Sea Flyway has its narrowest point just north of #Batumi, where the coast and Lesser Caucasus form a clear "bottleneck". The mtns are not extremely high but present a significant barrier for #raptors on #migration due to low and dense cloud cover. @BatumiRaptors

I think we can all agree that food is pretty important for survival.

Climate Change is already impacting food security- it is not a distant, ambiguous concern: 

More than 1 million acres of US cropland ravaged by floods

#ClimateActionNow #foodsecurity
Cascading impacts of deadly flooding around the world includes "food supply shocks"

"A “whiplash” between very dry periods, followed by very wet periods, is exactly what we can expect from climate change"

#foodsecurity #ClimateChange #agriculture
...North America is not immune -

Already ‘There’s bleeding going on’ in U.S. farm economy, ag lender says, due in part to extreme weather

A prolonged downturn “has impacted farmers of all ages, experience levels and sizes”

Ah, the #EuropeanParliamentElection knocks at the door! Let’s see who is #campaigning for what…In #Italy, a #rightwingcoalition calls for a #guaranteedincome, #largerpensions, and resistance to the heavy-handed #austerityprograms enforced by the #EuropeanUnion.
In #France, some #rightwinggroups champion #fight against #climatechange, decry #exploitation of #foreignworkers, growing #economicinequality. What about the #centerright and #centerleft parties? #Polls show they will lose their #majority, and the Euroskeptics bag 30+% of seats.
However, #Euroskeptic, like #populist, is a term that obscures more than it reveals. #Spain’s leftist #Podemos isn’t likely to break bread with #Italy’s rightist #NorthernLeague-#M5S, but both are considered #Euroskeptic. Some are really #wolves but wear #sheepskins.

I guess I better speak out on my own thread. @GRamsey_LatAm is gushing over how PAHO/WHO are "intervening" in the disastrous Venezuelan health situation.

Dude: I have been watching #measles and #malaria case numbers here in South America for the past few years.

The deterioration of the health situation in South America is glaringly evident.

A couple of years ago, I watched #malaria case numbers climb over 240,000 in Venezuela, after having been much lower than that for years, and almost eradicated in the 1950s and 1960s.

Soon thereafter, I personally witnessed the #migration out of #Venezuela , which had once been the most prosperous South American nation.

I saw some people so thin they could have been in the horrors of WW2.

UN Human Rights commissioner regarding US immigration policies:

"The thought that any State would seek to deter parents by inflicting such abuse on children is unconscionable."

The @UNHumanRights spoke out early last year about Session, republican GOP and Trump's inhumane policy of separating families..
The Trump administration stopped cooperating with UN investigations into human rights violations in America…

Its official...the next five years of my life will be spent as Director of a new @UKRI_News @GCRF South-South Migration, Inequality and Development Hub focusing on relationships between #migration #inequality and process of #development across 12 countries…
Migration between countries in Global South accounts for nearly half of all international migration, 70% in some places, contributing to delivery of #SDGs by creating opportunities for work and the transfer of resources, knowledge and skills. But... @Tanjabastia and others have shown, there is a relationship between #migration and #inequality. Benefits of #SouthSouthmigration are undermined by inequalities in migration opportunities and by limited and unequal access to rights for migrants and families. Meanwhile...

1. My Predictions For 2019:
- #Macron will find it more & more difficult to hold onto power.
- #Merkel won't last until 2021 & her power will further decrease this year quarter by quarter.
- I expect that the #Brexit-Exit-date will be moved (most likely by 12 months).
2. My Predictions For 2019:
- The issues of mass-#migration (few real #refugees) will continue to haunt #Europe, especially #Germany & continue to put pressure on the GER #Groko-government (#CDU/#CSU & #SPD).
#Predictions2019 #Year2019
3. My Predictions For 2019:
- The trend of right parties gaining more power (2018: #Italy, #Austria, #Brazil) will continue: In #France #LePen (#FN) will benefit from #Macron losing power, in #Germany the #AfD will gain further support in Eastern Germany (tbc).

Wir müssen entschieden gegen #Schlepper vorgehen, um illegale #Migration zu reduzieren und das Sterben im #Mittelmeer zu beenden. Es ist daher wichtig, dass die #EU mehr Druck auf Facebook ausübt, um Aktivitäten von Schleppern dort zu unterbinden.
Gerade soziale Medien wie #Facebook haben eine große Verantwortung. Viele Menschen weltweit fallen auf die Lügen der #Schlepper herein. Sie bezahlen Tausende Euro und riskieren ihr Leben bei gefährlichen Überfahrten. Davor dürfen wir nicht länger die Augen verschließen.
Mehr dazu in meinem gemeinsamen Interview mit Äthiopiens Präsidentin @SahleWorkZewde in der @BILD -Zeitung:

A short thread on the significance of the #CDU election tomorrow in #Germany to determine #Merkel's successor as party leader [1/8]
The two front-runners are Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer (AKK), the continuity candidate, and Friedrich Merz, who wants to take the party back towards the right. Jens Spahn, a younger right-wing contender, stands less of a chance [2/8]
Polls are of limited use in predicting who will win. Most are of CDU supporters, but the party leader will be chosen by a set of 1,001 CDU delegates in Hamburg. #AKK leads among supporters but #Merz may have the edge among the delegates [3/8]

@ArminLaschet @drumheadberlin 1. Oder Herr #Laschet, will man sich keiner Debatte stellen, die die Schwächen des #Migrationspakts aufdecken könnte?
Es ist doch komisch das die #CDU-Fürsprecher einerseits sagen der Pakt sei nicht verbindlich, aber soll Helfen #Migration zu regulieren. Wie, wenn unverbindlich?
@ArminLaschet @drumheadberlin 2. Es wird auch unterschlagen das der #Migrationspakt Migration zum Menschenrecht erklären will - Was das für Staaten in der Ersten Welt bedeutet ist doch klar - Daher werden Staaten wie die #USA, #Australien, #Oesterreich, #Israel und viele mehr, den Pakt nicht unterzeichnen!
@ArminLaschet @drumheadberlin 3. Es ist auch auffällig das schon seit 2 Jahren an dem #Migrationspakt gearbeitet wird, aber die Öffentlichkeit erst jetzt davon erfährt - Echte Demokratie geht anders: Ein Pakt der die #Massenmigration begünstigt gehört öffentlich diskutiert.

Europe's border is not where you think it is. Here's why:
#humanrights #migration #refugees #IDS2018 see @visionscarto #map @CDB_77
1/5. From 2010 to 2014, the number of refugees and migrants coming to Europe increased from 60,000 to 280,000. The EU decided to crack down on migration by paying other countries to deal with migration for them.
2/5. The EU started making financial agreements with African strongmen and #dictators to ramp up #border security, technical aid and data collection. As a result, other countries are actually controlling the EU border, moving the border further south to #NorthAfrica.

1. #Midterms2018 - The Facts:
- To win the #House the #Democrats need 23 more seats: Not easy
- To win the #Senate they need 2 more and successfully defend existing seats (100 seats in total, 2 for each #state): Not easy
- I detect that the #TrumpTrain (#RedWave) runs full speed!
2. #Midterms2018 - #Trump does a lot right:
- "The Base" was well prepared: You see it at all Trump-rallies
- Trump pushes a few emotive topics (illegal #migration): He knows - "Keep it simple, stupid!" #KISS
- The numbers are on his side: #Economy & #JobNumbers great
3. #Midterms2018 - What the #Democrats do wrong:
- Too many damaged goods: #ElizabethWarren (#Fakecahontas), #HillaryClinton despite all the support, over a billion war-chest & #media on her side LOST! But they keep pushing her!
- No single winning face, to win the votes!

@CapitalJon @PaulGambles2 @AlastairWinter @Halsrethink @dlacalle_IA @OBrienSheehan @chloechotv 1. #EU-#Europe before 2000 was OK: Open borders within #EU for EU-citizens, people can live & work (and study) in all EU states (so take great care who joins - went too fast too far East). The seed of destruction came with the #EURO.
@CapitalJon @PaulGambles2 @AlastairWinter @Halsrethink @dlacalle_IA @OBrienSheehan @chloechotv 2. More centralization & #Merkel's #RefugeesWelcome (with the will to enforce mass-#migration on other #EU states) introduce more toxic cancer cells into the #EU!
A common budget (#Macron) & an #EU-army would be the end of true #democracy & #freedom within #Europe!
@CapitalJon @PaulGambles2 @AlastairWinter @Halsrethink @dlacalle_IA @OBrienSheehan @chloechotv 3. The next step would be the likes of #Merkel, #Macron & #Juncker enforcing their will by first witholding money & next send the #EU-army to topple the likes of #Orban in #Hungary.
