En el "Día del Ambiente", revelamos una información crucial que expone la verdad detrás de YPF y sus planes destructivos para nuestros mares.

Recientemente, obtuvimos acceso a un documento interno filtrado de una agencia de comunicación que fue presentado a YPF. Su título es: 🪡 ImageImageImageImage
"YPF. Exploración offshore con licencia social".

¿Cuál es su objetivo? Pretenden forzar en los medios y redes sociales la supuesta legitimidad social del proceso de exploración sísmica en el Mar Argentino.

@YPFoficial, ¿por qué recurrir a estas tácticas de comunicación si no 🪡
están buscando perpetuar una mentira? ¿Qué intereses ocultos hay detrás de negar la realidad biológica y física de nuestro planeta?

¡Basta de tanta manipulación! Exijimos que digan la verdad y demuestren acciones reales hacia una transición energética.

Our research on the links between climate, environment and conflict in #Somalia focuses on the impact of the devastating drought, compounded by conflict and Al-Shabaab’s harsh policies, on the displacement of millions.

🧵 for #WorldEnvironmentDay.
Deforestation in Somalia for wood burning and charcoal production leads to catastrophic consequences.

It exacerbates the effects of drought and floods and provides funding opportunities to the militant group Al-Shabaab.
According to @UNEP, deforestation threatens drought-tolerant trees like the Acacia.

For @HodderClimate, the regeneration of the environment is important for soil health and also to ease tensions over natural resource competition and reduce displacements.…

This week's #MunicipalistMonday 🧵 weaves the story of Mondeggi Bene Comune. For a decade, in Florence, this communal democratic space has explored how we can produce & live together – living through solidarity, autonomy & participative democracy.
#WorldEnvironmentDay Image
On Florence's outskirts, Mondeggi Bene Comune is a 200 ha former state-owned farm that was going to be sold off in 2013. A movement ( including Terra Bene Comune network & peasant movement Genuino Clandestino) rejected privatisation. They demand everyone has rights to land. Image
Today hundreds of people organise collectively in Mondeggi Bene Comune around cultural events and activities such as olive growing, collective gardening, wine making, baking and brewing. It also participates in local markets and supports popular canteens. Image

On #WorldEnvironmentDay, we've published our UK Environmental Accounts🌍

UK greenhouse gas emissions on a residence basis increased by 3% between 2020 and 2021, to 502 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (Mt Co2e).

➡️… UK Environmental Accounts: ...
Households are the largest single contributor to UK emissions (consumer expenditure e.g. on heating and travelling), up 7% to 26% of the 2021 total 🔥🚗

The energy sector was second highest with 17% of the total. Line chart showing agricult...
Agriculture, forestry and fishing was by far the most emission intensive industry in 2021 🐄🌲🐟

This is largely due to the agriculture industry being the heaviest emitter of the potent greenhouse gas methane (CH4). Line chart showing agricult...

"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:…
"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

#DiaDoMeioAmbiente50Anos #AmazoniaÉAgora…
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.

1 milhão de pessoas na Amazônia Legal só recebem fornecimento em algumas horas do dia com geradores.

Outros 3 milhões são abastecidas por usinas termelétricas a óleo diesel.

Mas será que o desenvolvimento está chegando para essa gente? Foto. Uma moça está numa pl...

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:…
"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🧵

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.
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.… #ClimateEmergency

#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…
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.
