Courageous #HumanRights lawyer @SDonziger is finally free today, after 6 months of confinement — punishment for winning a $9 billion judgment against Chevron. gregpalast.com/steven-donzige… #FreeDonziger #StevenDonziger #BigOil #Pollution #Environment #Amazon ImageImage
I hope it’s final, because Judge Lewis A. Kaplan, the petroleum industry's black robed Putin, is on a crusade to muzzle the man who exposed Chevron's poisoning of the Amazon.
Let’s get some heat on New York’s corporate senators Gillibrand & Schumer to block the nomination of Chevron Consigliere Jennifer Rearden to the federal bench. And let's flood the White House with the demand that @SDonziger be given the Medal of Freedom.

Current research on microplastics is the stuff of nightmares-

They’re dangerous, they’re spread through our food, they're in the air... they’re everywhere

Thread 1/x
#health #ClimateCrisis #PlasticPollution #food
Much of the research is trapped behind paywalls, and only reported on in a limited, fragmented pattern

-like so much else when large corporations cause environmental damage and impose widespread health impacts on the public

2/x
#health #ClimateCrisis #PlasticPollution #food
The growing risks of microplastics are a direct function of an ongoing push by the same sociopathic corporations that are driving the climate crisis

With relatively little research available on the impact of #AirPollution on women’s reproductive health, or the different ways in which men and women are exposed, the issue has mostly slipped under their radar.

#AirPollution | Evidence is clear that air pollution is linked to higher rates of miscarriages, pregnancy complications and stillbirths, affecting women’s reproductive health. scroll.in/article/1020952

#Pollution levels are significantly higher in much of the developing world. scroll.in/article/1020952

It is worst in South Asia, where in 2021, 18 of the world’s 20 most polluted cities were spread across the Indo-Gangetic plain in India and Pakistan.

🧵 THREAD N°17 : #blockchain et #environnement

La blockchain est régulièrement pointée du doigt pour son impact environnemental, certains allant jusqu'à dire qu'il faut bannir les cryptos.

Mais qu'en est-il vraiment ? Peut-on trouver d'autres solutions ? Une intro au débat 👇 Image
1/ Il faut d'abord comprendre ce qui pollue dans l'utilisation des #cryptos.

Comme vous le savez, au sein d'une #blockchain, les blocs doivent être validés. Pour cela, des mineurs doivent résoudre un problème cryptographique qui permet de s'assurer de l'inviolabilité des données
2/ La plupart du temps, le problème à résoudre est un problème de #ProofOfWork avec lequel les mineurs doivent essayer des millions de combinaisons en quelques minutes jusqu'à trouver la bonne (pour faire simple).

Le premier à résoudre le problème reçoit une récompense.

I was live on @BBCNews last night talking about the language of #climate change. Here's a thread of short clips. First, I was asked to address what we call it: #ClimateChange #ClimateCrisis #ClimateEmergency #GlobalWarming Great to talk with @bbcdavideades!
Then we discussed a great term: #GlobalWeirding. Because human-caused #climate disruption is so much more than warming. It's the increased frequency & intensity of #extremeweather #heavyrain #Heatwaves #Wildfires #drought #flooding and more.
I explained why #greenhouse gases or #GHGs are not a great term for the public and why I prefer heat-trapping #pollution - it explains the mechanism.

And we're live - our ZW Live! #webinar "Should the #EU ban all exports of its #waste?" is now in full swing!

Watch it live on our Youtube channel if you couldn't register via Zoom:

@PierreCondamine @msaraswati @FokusNexus3 @Europarl_EN @EU_ENV @RethinkPlastic @brkfreeplastic @CLEAR_Lab_ All systems produce #waste - but how can we "waste well"?

Even with proximity principles in place, waste get side to the populations with the lowest incomes and from whose the biggest efforts are required - food for thought from our speaker @MaxLiboiron.

“Waste exports means creating further impacts on 'sacrifice zones' and communities which are already vulnerable; it is a presumed entitlement.” – @MaxLiboiron

1. The world's oldest known wild bird is a Laysan Albatros.

She is called Wisdom, because of her age and surviving many current threads like fish-lines, climate change, and plastic pollution. 

This is her. Isn’t she beautiful?

3. Wisdom was probably born around 1951. Five years later, in 1956, the young albatross, got a red ankle band with the number Z333.

By now, that albatross, Wisdom, has become famous as the world's oldest known wild bird.

Drax claims to have reduced its emissions by 90% since replacing coal with sustainable biomass, calling Ember's interpretation of the figures "completely at odds with what... UN IPCC say about sustainable biomass being crucial to delivering global climate targets"
