[THREAD] Morning DC, as a 🇪🇺 newly arrived at the @Washinstitute, I’ve been surprised by several things in the current US discussion on #Syria and the fight against #ISIS. I have focused on two in this piece on @thehill: #endlesswars & #burdensharing thehill.com/opinion/intern… 1/
I have indeed heard a lot about the need to stop « #endlesswars » in the #MiddleEast. European can probably see good reasons for this from #Afghanistan to #Iraq, as many of them opposed the war in Iraq. However...2/
Seen from #Europe, #Syria is not one of US #endlesswars, but a low-cost, high-efficiency CT op. It has not been shaped by US intervention, rather by US reluctance to intervene. Europeans who opposed the US-led war in #Iraq consistently called for more U.S. leadership in Syria. 3/

I am more pissed off at this premise from the audience (a teacher!) than with #BernieSanders' response
"Human population growth has more than doubled in the past 50 years. The planet cannot sustain this growth."
washingtonpost.com/politics/2019/…
Of course the population has grown! But,
a. #sustainability in the context of #ClimateChange is NOT about sheer numbers of people
b. the growth rate has slowed down. A LOT!
Therefore, discussing #abortion is awful in this context
Take the important #abortion question (pro or anti) to some other context of the human condition. Don't thread that with population growth and sustainability
Do people even care about evidence anymore?

Today, I will try my hand at live tweeting insights from "A #Home of One's Own", a two-day #researchworkshop on socially & economically #marginalised women's experiences of and negotiations with #genderinequalities in #informalurbanhousing in India.
This workshop has been organised by #JadavpurUniversity (School of Women's Studies), #RabindraBharathiUniversity (Centre for Women's Studies) and #Parichiti, a women's organisation. All three are research partners on a #GCRF project funded by @GoldsmithsUoL.
Since Oct 2018, I have collaborated with Dr. Henrike Donner, who is leading it, to develop #researchcollaborations with #educational and #development organisations in India to implement a pilot study on #genderurbanhousing. This workshop marks the end of the first phase.

Here is how I ruined a fruit for myself. I’m in Nagpur. This is an orange farm and this is an orange tree. India gets its largest supply of oranges from here. National Research Center for Citrus says a mature orange tree on an average consumes 40 liters of water per day.
It takes 4 years for an orange tree to bear fruit. If the water needs are met adequately then each tree produces 20 kilograms of fruit. So each orange that you eat takes about 4300 liters to grow.
There. If Maharashtra is running out of water then maybe, just maybe this could be one of the reasons. If I ever eat an orange again, I’ll know at what cost. #water #crisis

I see John #McDonnell in Sunday Times repeating claim that #renationalisation of water etc will have no net cost because gov't will be acquiring an asset to offset increase in debt. This isn't completely daft, but (you knew they'd be a but)... (1/2)
... it assumes i) renationalised assets keep their value (would they, if water is run by the GMB?), and ii) there is no other collateral damage (John McDonnell's plan to pay far less than market value would hit investor confidence hard). (2/2)
Ps. more on #water specifically here...

Need a quick overview of our new report assessing progress in preparing for the impacts of climate change in #England? Look no further! Read the full report theccc.org.uk/publication/pr…, take a look at our new infographic theccc.org.uk/wp-content/upl… or check out the following #thread
[1/10] Ministers must strengthen policy on adaptation & put resources in place to drive action to prepare for climate impacts in #England. Our report finds that support services/funding have been eroded over past 10yrs & latest National Adaptation Programme is not strong enough.
[2/10] There are many examples of dedicated officials+organisations doing great work to try to build resilience to #climate impacts. But a better, strategic national framework to underpin and drive action on the ground is needed. Piecemeal action does not match the scale of risk.

1. Morning folks from the village. Many asked about my goat housing. So this is the main goat pen. It has 2 compartments & a big store room. The pregnant females & those with kids stay on 1 side & the non pregnant females stay on the other side. The structure is 40m X 9meters.
2. This is the second goat pen building for the ones that I would have weaned off their mothers. The breeding boer goat males would be ready for sale at 6 months. We sale them at US$500 each.There is a massive shortage in the country at the moment because there are fewer breeders
3. #Water I use a 1.5 hp solar pump which pumps into a 5000 liter tank & then use gravity to distribute to the paddocks which have water pans for the goats. It is advisable to give them clean water to avoid liver fluke disease. I bought my borehole kit for R3000 in SA from DAB.

In response to @AOC’s #idiotic assertion that #US operated #detention facilities are #concentrationcamps, @Liz_Wheller posted a comment that @PPFA abortion businesses are the #concentration #camps we have to worry about.
@EmmaBella212 took exception to her observation. I replied, observing that #blastocysts, #embryos, and #fetuses are #human #beings.
@EricBrown1982 takes exception to my assertion that #science defines the offspring of #human #parents as #human and/or my assertion that #science confirms that the #blastocyst, the #embryo, and the #fetus are all #living #beings.

1/5 A thread:
There is a severe and growing #climate and #water disaster in India.
Delhi just saw its highest ever June temperature of 48C. Churu, Rajasthan saw highs of 50.8C, making it the hottest place on earth.

Hundreds of Indian villages have evacuated as historic drought forces abandonment of homes in search of water. 80% of districts in Karnataka & 72% in Maharashtra are suffering drought & crop failure. Violent conflicts are growing between the two states over shared #water.

In Beed, India clean drinking #water is gone. There’s not have enough water to wash clothes, clean dishes, or flush toilets. Hospitals are filling up with people suffering from dehydration and water-related sickness from drinking contaminated water.

#JhelumFables , a 5 day visual storytelling workshop which I am conducting with youth in #Kashmir kicked off today. There couldn't have been a better classroom than the picturesque houseboat ROOTS situated on river Jhelum.

P.S: The best way to spend holidays in company of ✏️📸
#JHELUMFABLES
On day two of the visual storytelling workshop I interacted with each participant. We did small excercises to enhance imagination. Later they chose quaint corners of Roots houseboat situated on river #Jhelum & scribbled stories in company of wood & water. #Kashmir
Light experiments inside classroom on day 3 of #JhelumFables
A chair placed on the wooden Verandah of the houseboat facing west became a prop for portrait shooting- as participants tried side lighting & back lighting before venturing out on the river banks with their camera & pen

@ESA_TGO @esa @NASA @isro @roscosmos Did you know there is a telecommunications network at #Mars? Orbiters relay commands and send #science data from landers & rovers back to #Earth. Our #ExoMars @ESA_TGO is a key provider of data relay services!🔴〰️🛰〰️🌍 #ExploreFarther
📷Hi-res: esa.int/spaceinimages/…
@ESA_TGO @esa @NASA @isro @roscosmos Did you know that you can find out what the #weather is on #Mars? Landers & rovers report the local weather while orbiters keep an eye on global atmosphere developments including cloud formations and dust storms☁️🌪

Ready for a great discussion: "Beyond #DCP: Long Term #Water #Sustainability for the #ColoradoRiver Basin" thanks to @DCDC_ASU
.@PHXWaterAdvisor says #DCP did nothing to address the structural deficit built into the #ColoradoRiver compact. That needs to be key to next round of negotiations starting next year.
Solutions focusing only on the biggest water consumer in #Arizona - agriculture - are not adequate to solve the bigger issue, according to Chelsea McGuire with the @azfb

Ground report from last village before Indo-Pak border in #Rajasthan

Women stand in the queues, day and night, walk kms everyday for each drop of water.

Raji (26) and her friends celebrate after spotting a water tanker for the first time @DeccanHerald
Children of this village skip their school to help their mothers in carrying water from tanker to home.
Since tanker had arrived for the first time, most of the households here wanted to lift utmost water for their house hold chores #Barmer #Watercrisis #rajasthan @DeccanHerald
#LokSabhaElections2019
72 years after Independence, for sizeable population in #Rajasthan, #Water is a dream!
