A #FixTheWEO *THREAD* on how the @IEA is still boosting fossil fuels & acting as an obstacle on #climate with #WEO19.

TL;DR: It fails the biggest test – charting an energy road map to staying within 1.5°C, when that is a key to survival for millions of people. 1/
@IEA First things first: Why care? As Andrew Logan @CeresNews put it: "The @IEA is effectively creating its own reality. They project ever-increasing demand for fossil fuels, which in turn justifies greater investments in supply." 2/

@IEA @CeresNews When the world's 'gold standard' of energy analysis gives central billing to a 3°C scenario, @IEA normalizes a path we can't afford to take rather than focusing attention on the path we urgently need to pursue ➡️ below 1.5°C. 3/ ft.com/content/5c80f1…

The approval of #Adani’s groundwater plans is a disgrace and shows that the whole system is rigged and broken. This is not about any specific allegation of corruption, but the rules of the whole system being unfit for purpose. Here’s a thread on a few ways the system is rigged:
QC @StephenKeim1 has said that: “the default position of mining law in Queensland is that mining should proceed because exploiting the earth is ordained.” The existing system fails to adequately consider the climate damage impacts of a proposed project.
Notoriously there is legal approval that asks directly “given that we are in a state of climate emergency, should this project proceed?” Logically, it is impossible to justify the Adani mine in the face of climate emergency.

1. OK, Hanson lied through her teeth. Ashby & Dickson solicited donations from the NRA & the Koch operation, and discussed how to hide it so voters didn’t know. They KNOW what they’re doing is wrong. They promise potential donors to weaken gun laws. #howtosellamassacre
2. Hanson calls Ashby in the US about what they’re doing. He tells her they must ‘keep everything out of writing’ and use a private email account. She KNEW. Of course she knew. #howtokillamassacre.
3. PH dines with Muller AFTER foreign donations banned, says didn’t go to US b/c ‘not a politically smart thing for me to do.’ She discusses foreign loans & ‘baby steps’ to weaken gun laws. Ashby says he’ll return to USA with her after #ausvotes. SHE KNEW. #howtokillamassacre

So @AdaniAustralia's low quality means they would only receive half the #coal benchmark price, even if they use a huge amount of Townsville's drinking water for washing to make it saleable. A stranded asset the @IPCC_CH says we can't afford. @mattjcan afr.com/business/minin…
Is @ScottMorrisonMP proposing a $200m upgrade of Townsville's water supply to offset the free upstream of Townsville water being gifted by @DrAnthonyLynham to a foreign tax haven based billionaire to export yet more low quality thermal coal the world can't afford to burn?
South Korean Government SOEs rule out any financing nor EPC involvement in @AdaniAustralia's proposed Carmichael #coal mine. thewire.in/business/gauta… by @kabira_tweeting
