Getting the whole world to #netzero #GHGs rapidly is going to be incredibly difficult. But given how strong and organized the #climateopposition is, we must distinguish #thesignalfromthenoise on which pathways are the most likely to succeed. A 🧵 on how I think about this 1/14
2/ First, we cannot rely on social and lifestyle change governed by new paradigms like degrowth to deliver in time for this #climatedecade. But if the movement delivers small reductions in energy or meat consumption, we need it…
3/ #Technologyandpolicy (and politics) need to do the heavy lifting. Can they deliver? Yes, but to effectively channel our efforts and fight off the opposition, we need to distinguish between main courses, side dishes and poison pills (frequently buried in the side dishes)

Last week, @RenaultIndia launched a refreshed version of its entry level model Kwid. There are a number of added features but what caught my eye was the starting price of Rs 4.06 lakh. It's significantly more than when the Kwid was first launched at Rs 2.57 lakh just 6 yrs ago.
It prompted the idea to put out this thread on how car prices have changed over the last few yrs. A lot of it is logical--safety & emission norms are tighter & raw materials have also generally increased. Yet, as this thread will illustrate, its more a matter of market realities.
To start with let's look at the current bestselling car in India--the #Swift. Launched in the summer of 2005 at Rs 3.87 lakh subsequent new models have seen prices go up to Rs 4.22 lakh in 2011 & Rs 5.73 lakh 2day. It's a 48% increase over 16 yrs. This is more or less the median.

"Toyota supports candidates based on their position on issues that are important to the auto industry and the company," Toyota

"We do not believe it is appropriate to judge members of Congress solely based on their votes on the electoral certification”
Health insurer #Cigna said in January it would pause contributions to lawmakers "who encouraged or supported violence…

Yet the company still gave money to at least six of the lawmakers who voted against Biden's certification, Forbes reported.

#Pakistan set to export car part to #Toyota #Vietnam

#AuVitronics Limited, is set to export a car part to Toyota Motor Vietnam Co, Ltd. (TMV), making it a member of Toyota’s global supply chain. Image
The move comes after #IndusMotor Company (#IMC) requested Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) to let AuVitronics Limited supply absorber bumpers to TMV since TMV is adopting the same Toyota Corolla model that is sold in Pakistan.
IMC along with the local supplier reduced the development lead time to half in order to meet the TMV’s tough timelines .

In reality, the trademark should be property of those that created the brand. Namely, We Mean Business in partnership with the #UN & partner, World Economic Forum.

Callum Grieve: We Mean Business architect. Thunberg handler. #Branding expert.…
We Mean Business: 1,176 corporations rep. 24.8 trillion market cap.

Aside from how ridiculous it is to feign disapproval that a #brand created by/serving the most powerful institutions/ corporations on the planet is being misused, I want to touch upon a couple of things.
Jan 29 2020, GT: "I apologize to anyone who has been contacted - and even misled - by this kind of behavior."

Sep 25 2019, GT: " clothes, my behaviour and my differences. They come up with every thinkable lie and conspiracy theory."

1) behavior

The #Sony surprise is just the beginning. I expect many more surprise winners in #electricvehicle space. @Sony #CES2020 1/n
@Sony The traditional #auto behemoths with their fully depreciated plants & highly profitable operations don’t seem to have the ability or the appetite to look beyond their guzzling #ICE cars. #electricvehicles 2/n
@Sony Similar statements have emerged from #toyota and other biggies too. They don't seem to see the tsunami coming their way. #ElectricVehicles 3/n

1/9 I have purchased a car very recently. So, I went through the usual motions of a large and involved purchase at the time of my decision. This might also give you an insight into the auto sector slowdown #AutoSector #SlowDown #Economyslowdown #economy
2/9 Clean fuel vehicles are coming: Hydrogen fuel cell, & #ElectricVehicles (#BEV & #PHEV) are coming sooner than we thought. Govt envisions an electric mobility future for us & is taking a lot of steps to push EVs under #FAME2 scheme. To reduce pollution & fuel import bill.
3/9 If I buy a regular petrol/diesel car, it may get obsolete sooner than I imagined. Eg: NCR banned 10yr old #diesel vehicles to improve air quality, push towards electric. All this affects resale value of the #cars. Hence, I considered pushing the life of my current car

For everyone in the international community, a quick word picture about what happend in #sudan:
⭕Imagine your contry was ruled by a military man(#Albashir) that came via coup for 30 years.
⭕Drove your economy into the ground and put almost your entire ppl in poverty.
⭕Whilst doing so this ruler violently cracks down on any whiff of opposition
⭕Systematically dismantles your constitution and institutions
⭕Replaces any decent govt figureheads with gutless yes men
⭕Starts a genocide/ethnic cleansing in an entire state of your country #darfur
⭕to carry out said genocide this military man decides to employ a militia(#janjaweed) of Chadian origins(who were originally bandits, and donkey/camel thieves) lead by a nomadic man (#hemidty) and arms them to the teeth and directs them at their target.
