@ArviPalanisamy presents his philosophy on the Future of #OBAnes Research in this final session of #OAA3DC2022: practical, aspirational, inspirational (skipping the queue to catch a train, @noolslucas & @OAAinfo) very accommodating in view of train/tube strikes affecting London)
#OBAnes research has plateaued, advancing in increments. A change in thinking is required. Several low hanging fruit, #MindTheGap between #OBAnes research and practice - implementation science something for future? #OAA3dc2022
One subject ripe for implementation science study is awareness. DREAMY study factors associated are known, awareness common (perhaps we’re losing a skill?) & linked to PTSD. #BridgeTheGap #OAA3DC2022

The Land Gap report reveals that countries’ so called 'climate pledges' are dangerously over reliant on inequitable, and in fact, unsustainable tree planting plans. #MindTheGap

Read the #LandGapReport here:
landgap.org
🧵
In the current plan, 6 630 000* square kilometres would be monocultures of planted conifers (e.g. spruce or pine) or eucalyptus!

*This area is almost as large as all of Australia or the continental United States, and larger than all of Europe outside Russia.
(2/n)
"Current tree planting plans should be scrapped or rather reoriented. Mitigation actions should prioritise protecting and restoring the existing carbon stocks in ecosystems. The most important thing is to protect the remaining natural forests" #Landgapreport

I can’t shake the feeling that we continue to be cheated out of getting through this pandemic safely

A short 🧵 on some of the reasons #CovidIsntOver
💨 #CovidisAirborne yet we don’t monitor or purify our air #BreathBackwash

😷 Education around high quality fitted masks continues to be minimal. Respirators remain inaccessible for many. As a consequence, ineffective (cloth, surgical) masks are being used #MindTheGap
🧪 We use rapid antigen tests with no #PaidSickDays and many can’t isolate for the full duration of contagiousness

💉 Vaccines were made to be a panacea when we needed to layer it with all of the above. This disappointment has stopped people from being uptodate with their C19 💉

How Pegasus spyware is piloted on Palestinians and deployed globally. New visual on #apartheidtech and #pegasusspyware via @visualizingpal, @alhaq_org, @BisanResearch and #MindtheGap Consortium. Image
Pegasus sypware enables the Israeli dirty tech giant NSO full access to targeted devices and data without the user clicking any malware. The rise of dangerous technology like Pegasus spyware marks the exportation of Palestinian mass surveillance to global civil society.
Journalists and rights activists across the globe have all been targeted by Pegasus spyware. In response to the pilot of Pegasus spyware and its subsequent global expansion, Palestinians are calling for a ban on the trade of mass surveillance technology.

気候変動を止めるために「私たちひとりひとりにできることリスト」。
すべて集団でのアクションにつなげられものばかり。再エネに切り替えるとか電気を消すとか個人の生活を変えるのではなく、声をあげる、仲間と行動する、政治に関わるなど、システムを変えるための行動。大事なこと。 #MindTheGap
「私たちひとりひとりにできること」は誰にでもできることじゃないと意味がありません。再エネへの乗り換えも、電気自動車も、菜食への転換も、公共交通機関の利用も、脱プラも、恵まれた人間にしかできません。「変われない自分には声をあげる資格がないんじゃないか」と思わせてはいけないんです。
できることをできる範囲で続けていくのがアクティビズムです。気候アクションは、何十年も続きます。アクティブでいるためには心身を健康に保つことが大事です(資本主義社会ではそれすらも難しいですが)。多くのことができるから偉いわけでも、できることが少ないからダメなわけでもありません。

I 100% endorse this point. It is pure tokenism for the media and politicians to acknowledge the climate and ecological crisis for a few hours, a day, at most a few days. Then to forget about, and to move on to relative trivia.
I see the way the media, politicians, vested interests and PR manipulators create bandwagons and whip up public concern and opinion. They hammer away, keeping an issue in the headlines for weeks, months, years. They produce a deluge of stories and headlines.
We never see them do this with the climate and ecological crisis ever. This is why we know they are insincere and disingenuous. Do they think we never notice this? They insult our intelligence. #MindTheGap

Sel ve yangınların ortaya çıkış sebepleri ne olursa olsun, sonuçlar iklim krizi yüzünden iyice büyüyüp kötüleşiyor. Bu felaketleri iklim krizinin ülkemizde kendini açıkça gösterişi olarak yorumlamak ve iklim politikamızı buna göre değiştirmek zorundayız. +

1) We need to urgently develop a new simple and clear cut way of defining the climate and ecological crisis, and defining what measures are actually necessary to avert catastrophe. I make this request to all working scientists in this field, and indeed all concerned scientists.
2) Currently we have a serious problem where world leaders are playing a deceitful game of pretending they are trying address the climate and ecological crisis, when neither their acknowledgement of what the crisis is, and nor their measures are at all realistic #MindTheGap.
3) This is a convoluted version of the straw man logical fallacy, in which a dishonest person tries to win an argument, by misrepresenting the argument of their opponent and arguing against the misrepresentation as if that were the issue.

1) I want to illustrate the problem here with this article from @RHarrabin who is supposedly the BBC "environment analyst". See the thread below.
2) In an otherwise good article, @RHarrabin bizarrely concludes.

"What do we imagine things will be like with a rise of 2C, which was until recently considered to be a relatively "safe" level of change? "
bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-…
3) If you understand the history of the 2C figure as regards to climate change, and how it was defined and explained, it is impossible to understand how any informed person thought it was a safe figure.

#gendergap #genderpaygap #healthcare
#2: The gaps varied by specialty, where the widest pay gaps were for orthopedic surgery (an average pay gap of $122,677) and otolaryngology (an average pay gap of $108,905)

Emitted CO2 (excluding land use) vs captured CO2.
A must read for anyone with even a remote interest in future living conditions.

#MindTheGap between words and action, rhetoric and reality.

"The IEA report assumes around a 3–4x scale up in the annual addition of renewables, by 2030, compared to 2020. But it assumes a 59x scale up in the annual additions of CCS capture capacity, by 2030."
2/n
"Not only is the gap between promise and reality much, much bigger compared to renewables, there is no evidence that its corporate proponents are much inclined to put effort into filling that gap, and plenty of evidence that they’ll continue stalling for as long as they can." 3/n

1) In this mini thread, in responses to my tweet below, I lay out irrefutable proof, that 50 years ago, world leaders were well aware that our economies and societies had to radically change direction to avoid an ecological crisis in the future.
2) In an Orwellian re-invention of history world leaders, politicians and other establishment figures peddle the lie that we have only recently discovered the depth of the climate and ecological emergency, and that is why we have taken no action until now.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orwellian
3) As the UN documents and conferences I link to in that mini-thread make crystal clear, our state of knowledge about the ecological crisis was well enough established 50 years ago, to understand that we had to radically change direction to avert a future crisis.

What my thread is about here is the reality gap between how the physical and natural world described by science actually operates, and the convenient fiction narrative of the natural environment as imagined by classical economics sees the world. #MindTheGap
@GretaThunberg is accurately and pertinently highlighting the reality gap between the climate action pledged by politicians, and the action the science tells us we need to take to avert dangerous climate change and ecological catastrophe. #MindTheGap
However, the problem goes much, much deeper than this. Politicians, economists, business leaders and a large proportion of the public have a totally false view of the world in which we live. The reality gap is much bigger than just the pledged action. #MindTheGap

1/ You've surely seen constant recent messaging & articles imploring you to improve quality of both #mask fit & filtration, in part b/c of worrying COVID variants.

Good news that the #CDC is catching up w/ those messaging efforts w/ updated guidance today.

Short 🧵 of links.
2/ Another good summary thread of the CDC changes; by @AbraarKaran, who has been among ardent supporters lobbying hard for #bettermasks:
3/ One good example summarizing the new #CDC guidance changes on masks, w/ helpful infographics, interviews, and short video w/ CDC chief Dr. Walensky.

We schalen niet op, dus onvoldoende capaciteit, dus zullen we straks nog meer tests nodig hebben. De logica van neoliberale 'efficiëntie': vooral niets op de plank willen hebben.
#testcapaciteit #neoliberalisme 1/
De aanname dat het leven voorspelbaar zal zijn, en beter zal worden. Zonder daar veel voor te hoeven doen. Wat waarschijnlijk voor een groot deel van de voorstanders ook altijd zo is geweest.

De ironie, degenen die pleiten voor weinig steun & zorg vanuit de overheid vanuit het idee dat mensen consequenties moeten ervaren van eigen handelen, zijn vaak degenen die zelf nooit met die consequenties geconfronteerd worden.
