"Il #5giugno di ogni anno ricorre la #giornatamondialedellambiente , la giornata delle Nazioni Unite (ONU) che incoraggia la consapevolezza e l'azione a livello mondiale per proteggere l'ambiente. Il tema di quest'anno è "Solo una Terra". ⬇2
In #Palestina, questa giornata arriva in un momento dove l'impatto negativo del regime coloniale e dell'apartheid di Israele sull'ambiente sta diventando sempre più evidente.

Ciò vale in particolare per la Striscia di #Gaza, ⬇3

"The livestock sector is currently the single major driver of habitat loss and degradation, which is in its turn a leading cause of species decline and extinction worldwide."

Important study + 🧵thread on this main driver of biodiversity loss:

sciencedirect.com/science/articl…
"The production of livestock alters natural habitats not only via land-use change, but also through its outputs of agrochemicals, nutrients, sediments, antibiotics and hormones into natural environments."
"The multiple, synergetic, and ubiquitous past and present processes by which human carnivory threatens the world's biodiversity makes it arguably the most detrimental aspect of our ecology, from a conservation point-of-view."

🔥🌿Segundo dados do INPE, a Amazônia brasileira teve 2.287 focos de incêndio em Mai/22, o maior número para o mês em 18 anos.

➡️Maioria dos incêndios vem de queimadas agrícolas em áreas desmatadas ilegalmente

O aumento de incêndios florestais e do desmatamento no 🇧🇷, tem sido alvo de inúmeros alertas, ganhando espaço a medida que "são aprovadas medidas do Executivo que fragilizem ainda mais a preservação do meio ambiente" - Mauricio Voivodic, diretor da filial brasileira do WWF
Em outros momentos, fiz alguns fios/conteúdos falando sobre os impactos do desmatamento, queimadas, garimpo e tráfico de animais e as relações que isso tem com o surgimento de novas pandemias

1. One of our toughest & longest battles to save #wildlife started on #WorldEnvironmentDay of 2016, when our team mates Suvrajyoti Chatterjee & Meghna Banerjee came to know about the horrific "ritualistic hunting festivals" of South Bengal.
2. We witnessed thousands of slaughtered wild #animals strewn across the railway platforms of Howrah & East Medinipur districts.
We faced both physical as well as verbal abuse from the hunters before we could even grasp the true extent of devastation inflicted by them.
3. Further inquiries revealed it was an annual affair celebrated on the occasion of Faloharini Kali Puja where thousands of armed mobs descend on the #forests & rivers of these two districts & decimate every #wildanimal they can find.

Since last #WorldEnvironmentDay, we've made progress in tackling the climate crisis in #Brighton & #Hove.

Here's just a small taste of what @BrightonHoveCC has been up to...
🫧 We've installed water refill stations across high footfall areas in the city, so you can get access to water without the plastic
🏫 We're working with schools to help them adapt too, with 10 pilot schools working on our new 'our city, our world' programme

Do not cut down trees that are home to birds.

We utilize the equivalent of 1.6 Earths to maintain our contemporary lifestyle, and ecosystems cannot keep up with our requests.

The gap between what we need to expend to adapt and what we are expending is broadening. Estimated expenses of adaptation continue to climb and could reach US$280-500 billion per year by 2050 for developing nations alone.
Each year, we extract a projected 55 billion tons of fossil energy, minerals, metals, and biomass from the Earth.

Neste #WorldEnvironmentDay #DiaMundialDoMeioAmbiente gostaríamos de lembrar isso, que é fundamental. Para citar apenas um: basta ouvir o que Ailton Krenak diz, escreve, questiona. Leia essa entrevista que fizemos com ele em 2019 e comprove: observatoriodamineracao.com.br/ailton-krenak-…
"Quando a gente quis criar uma reserva, foi preciso justificar para a Unesco por que era importante que o planeta não fosse devorado pela mineração. Para essa instituição, é como se bastasse manter apenas alguns lugares como amostra grátis da Terra".
"Se sobrevivermos, vamos brigar pelos pedaços de planeta que a gente não comeu. Essas agências foram configuradas e mantidas como estruturas dessa humanidade. E nós legitimamos sua perpetuação, aceitamos suas decisões, que muitas vezes são ruins e nos causam perdas"

🇧🇷📡This week, Brazil broke two more –rather alarming– records:

Historic increases in deforestation, and historic increases in land conflicts. Come with us to untangle the unfortunate record breaking track keeping environmental protectors awake at night🧵

#WorldEnvironmentDay
The Pastoral Land Commission @cptnacional published its 2020 report. Violence in rural areas reached an all time high: 1576 occurrences of conflicts over land, since 1985, when the reporting began. Also a 25% increase to 2019 and 57.6% to 2018.
#ConflictsInTheFieldBrasil2020
On Friday, we've learned that deforestation in the Amazon surpassed 1K km2 in a month for the first time since
@inpe_mct Deter-B started monitoring, in 2016. Also an increase of 41% to the same period in the previous year.

Climate change is an existential crisis for mankind and it’s sad that it gets the most attention on #WorldEnvironmentDay. We believe it’s our collective responsibility to use our resources for the good. (1/12)
We thought we'd share a few things that we at @zerodhaonline and @Rainmatterorg are doing to tackle important issues like ecological restoration, afforestation and helping rural livelihoods. (2/12)
The #1000TreeProject by swayyam.org was one of our first initiatives. The farmers’ collectives are embracing the principles of permaculture and agroecology to regenerate denuded farmlands in Yelachhati village. (3/12)

#WorldEnvironmentDay 2021 is being observed at the most difficult of times with India battling on two fronts - 2nd wave of #COVID19 has caused devastation, and evidence shows that the country has not augured well on environmental norms.

A look at 10 major environmental concerns:
2020 was the 8th warmest year on record, and 2016 was the warmest ever, followed by 2009. 12 of the 15 warmest years were recorded during the past 15 years (2006-2020), and 2011-20 was the warmest decade on record.

This is a warning for India. Here's why hindustantimes.com/india-news/on-…
Environmental degradation is a cause of concern for agriculture, with rising use of insecticides, pesticides, which is contaminating soil, ground water.

GoI has launched a mission for organic farming but only 2% of India’s 140M hectares of farm land is used for organic farming.

It's #WorldEnvironmentDay2021. The time for tokenistic days & further platitudes is well & truly over.
Bad news: We are living in an environmental & extinction crisis.
Good news: We *can* fix it, but it requires accountability from governments right down to individuals. Thread.
So why are we in this terrible mess, nature.com/articles/s4155…, and most importantly, what can we do about it? Well, @DonADriscoll has put together a very handy explainer
What choices and changes can I make as an individual that will help to better care for nature? Well, @M_Selinske et al. have great suggestions here: conbio.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.111… This work is focussed on the Australian state of Victoria, but it has very broad relevance and application.

On this #WorldEnvironmentDay, we’re taking time to reflect on air pollution, environmental inequalities and systemic racism. 🌎🖤

A thread. ⤵️
In Paris 🇫🇷, where we hail from, people living in the city’s poorer neighborhoods have a 5x higher risk of death in the aftermath of NO2 peaks.
