Grau de investimento: crucial quesito avaliador na concessão de crédito…
"O #Brasil em 2018 não recuperou o seu grau de investimento perdido em 2015.

Após uma melhora na economia que sucedeu uma grave recessão, as agências justificaram a falta de medidas para conter o déficit fiscal como motivo de não elevar a nota do país."…

(1/22) Our new paper @NatureEnergyJnl ( proposes a solution to break the deadlock in negotiations between #Ethiopia 🇪🇹, #Sudan 🇸🇩 & #Egypt 🇪🇬 on the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (#GERD) on the #BlueNile – with help of #solar and #wind power. Thread👇 Image
(2/22) The #BlueNile (Abay) is highly seasonal, with extreme differences in flow between dry and wet months. #GERD’s reservoir is so large it can store the full annual flow & deliver #hydropower at a stable rate throughout the year - suppressing the river flow #seasonality. Image
(3/22) Delivering hydropower w/o seasonality makes loads of sense from Ethiopian perspective, but overhauls natural timing of water reaching #Sudan & #Egypt. Behind many disagreements on #GERD lies downstream countries’ fear of s/o upstream having control over #BlueNile flow… Image

Our Secretary-General @JimCloos1 is talking ALL THINGS #Strategic Autonomy with @iiea RIGHT NOW💪

@iiea is our Member Institute from 🇮🇪

You can follow the livestream on @YouTube or stay tuned here from some highlights of Jim's intervention

"All recent Euro-crises from the subprime mortgage crisis to the #COVID19 crisis originated outside the European Union, but hit us incredibly hard"

- @JimCloos1, TEPSA Secretary-Ge neral speaks to @iiea

"Firstly the economic crises highlighted the imbalance within the #EMU, the flaws of the 'no bailtout' clause, which meant richer countries could only intervene as a last resort, and that the @ecb was not properly empowered against crises"

How can #NetZero targets be made rigorous, fair and transparent?

We published 10 guidelines that can help

Details are buried in the supplement of our @nature comment.

Here I'll be going through them, one per day

@COP26 @topnigel @PEspinosaC


The supplement contains an overview table (👇) and a detailed set of guidelines for #NetZero targets

They cover:
I. Scope (of target)
II. Adequacy & Fairness
III. Long term roadmap

It's a long list - so let's get through it one day at a time

(2/n)… Image
Point I.1: Define the global climate goal your #NetZero target contributes to

The #ParisAgreement aims to hold warming "well below 2°C" and pursues to limit it to 1.5°C. Rigorous targets should be more specific than that.

what are #NetZero targets?
why do they matter?
and why do vague targets lull the world in missing its climate goals?

A (long) thread with scientific and policy background on our recent @nature commentary

#ClimateScience @NatureNews…
What are #NetZero targets?

#NetZero targets are key benchmarks towards a world where we avoid the worst of climate change. But if defined vaguely, they leave a lot of wiggle room and can compromise achievement of the #ParisAgreement

We provide guidelines to avoid this.

First, why are there #NetZero targets?

Global warming is proportional to the total cumulative amount of CO2 we emit. Halting global warming thus means we have to stop adding CO2 to the atmosphere.
Rigorous net-zero CO2 targets achieve at least that, but also more...

Lasst uns über Verantwortung & #Journalismus reden.

Der @MDRAktuell über einen @DWD_klima-Bericht: "Nach Einschätzung der Organisation ist eine Begrenzung der Klimaerwärmung auf zwei Grad Celsius bis zum Ende des Jahrhunderts nicht mehr möglich."…
So wie es der @MDRAktuell darlegt, scheint sicht Prof. Dr. Gerhard Adrian vom @DWD_klima sicher zu sein: Das #ParisAgreement sei nicht mehr zu schaffen.

Schon gewagt, oder? Da arbeitet der IPCC gerade intensiv am 6. Sachstandsbericht, aber der DWD hat bereits ein Ergebnis. 🤔
Zugegeben, die Lage ist wirklich dramatisch, ich wünsche uns kein einziges Zehntel Grad mehr an Erderhitzung und ich arbeite Nächte durch, um darüber aufzuklären, dass wir sofort handeln müssen!

"Aber wenn es eh schon zu spät ist?", wird sich jede:r MDR-Hörer:in fragen.

📢 Curious about #carbonremoval?
Read my new report @GlobalCCS: "Carbon Removal with #CCS technologies".

@EUCarbonCapture @Bellona_EU
@cleanaircatf @NEP_Brussels

#carboncapture is a unique set of tech because it has a dual role in addressing #climatechange. It can help to reduce emissions from point sources, AND it can remove CO2 from the atmosphere.

Let that sink in.
There are not many solutions out there that do both.

2/10 Image
All #carbonremoval approaches (natural or technological) have their advantages and challenges/limitations, my overview looks into #BECCS and #DACCS.

The #ParisAgreement will cost the U.S. hundreds of thousands of jobs and result in higher energy prices; it will entrust billions of taxpayer dollars to UN bureaucrats, requires no decrease in emissions from China, and by one estimate would only reduce warming by 0.3°F by 2100.
Instead of sacrificing billions, or even trillions, in GDP to ensure compliance with an agreement that barely moves the needle on global temperatures, the U.S. would be better off continuing with its market-driven efforts for cleaner energy and a cleaner environment.
.@POTUS Biden should not circumvent Congress; he should submit the Paris Agreement to the Senate as a treaty and let the People’s representatives vote on it.
It will fail.

Vice-president under Barack #Obama and a senator for 36 years, #JoeBiden is a political figure familiar to most Americans🇺🇸

To many, he lacks the aura of the last Democratic president, but after a period of turmoil in US politics, is he the steady pair of hands the nation needs?
#US 🇺🇸 President Joe #Biden moved swiftly to dismantle Donald #Trump’s legacy on his first day in office.

The president signed a series of executive actions to reverse course on immigration, climate change, racial equity and handling of the pandemic ✍️

@WassimCornet reports ⤵️
@WassimCornet 🇺🇸 Meanwhile, Donald #Trump has a long way to go to rebuild an image left in tatters by his presidency, particularly the final months.

France 24's @ketgorjestani said that the Republican left the White House "with the lowest rating of his presidency" ⤵️

The Biden-Harris administration has given us one last, best chance to secure a livable climate for the next generation. By rejoining the #ParisAgreement, the US is ready to rejoin the globe and bring some much-needed American leadership to confronting our climate crisis. #OneNYC
For four years, cities like New York have stepped up to fill the void left by the Trump administration. @ClimateMayors @c40cities @usmayors @ICLEI_USA @Mayors4Climate
Now, we stand ready to work with the federal government to invest in the clean energy, resilient infrastructure, and environmental justice that will create jobs, accelerate a green economic recovery, and end the age of fossil fuels for good. #GreenRecovery

#WeAreBackIn! As the United States re-joins the #ParisAgreement, there's no better time to spotlight the central role that culture and heritage can & must play in transformative climate action. A THREAD.
The @ICOMOS #FutureOfOurPasts report outlines the myriad ways cultural heritage supports achieving #ParisAgreement targets, incl heightening the ambition & capacity of communities to act, supporting climate adaptation, contributing to GHG mitigation & addressing loss & damage. /2
Our cultures in all their diversity; the wisdom, memory & identity embedded in our local and planetary heritage, inspires and heightens climate ambition: the will and means to achieve the objectives of the #ParisAgreement and win the #RacetoResilience. /3

THREAD: What the world wants from John Kerry in 2021

Re-joining the #ParisAgreement isn't enough, say 25 climate ministers and advocates we interviewed from six continents. Deeds before words: Legislating a tough 2030 U.S. emissions reduction legislation is 1st serious step
2) But the world wants the words too, hoping Kerry will be world's climate cheerleader: convincing reluctant and developing country governments (also with $) to set aggressive climate goals, which many pinpoint as including carbon neutrality by 2050.
3) World's moved on from Obama era. Jacob Werksman (the EU’s international climate adviser) warned Obama alums on Biden’s team “they can’t expect to be treated the same way” as four or eight years ago

IDK how many feel as I do that the Morrison lead government will not bring out #Budget2021
For all thinking people it appears the we are now in an undeclared Federal election campaign
The impact of the Opposition`s attack on all of Morrison`s failures
has finally cut through
Media cannot find positives to promote this LNP government any further
A further eroding of the Democratic process in shutting down debate in #HoR question time cannot be defended by the #MSM, nor can it be glossed over
Also, the impact of the new US Biden admin with it`s #NetZeroBy2050 & return to the #ParisAgreement will see Morrison not only further sidelined by global powers it will see him totally isolated in #ClimateChangeDenialism
