With #Covid19 as the ultimate catalyst, the push is on to implement the financialization of nature.

The Natural Capital Coalition is made up of approx. 300 orgs/corps while working w/ thousands. Partners include #CocaCola, #Shell, #Walmart.

Those with money will own #nature.
Those w/ $ will own #nature.

The very corporations that have brought us to the precipice of #ecological #collapse - will now be appointed as the new stewards of nature. This has been dubbed (#XR Business - Elkington/Volans) as the new biosphere economy.

#NewDealForNature
Let's take a look at how #Covid19 has been successfully leveraged (both fear & distraction) in order to aid the largest transformation of the global economic system in modern history. Assigning monetary value to nature ("natural capital") will replace #GDP.

Thread.

No longer is it necessary to pay attention to my 2019-2020 ramblings/warnings of a global economic reset. Instead, as of June 3, 2020, you can now hear it directly from the source: the World Economic Forum (#WEF).

The World Economic Forum: home of the #FourthIndustrialRevolution as designed and desired by the ruling classes in tandem with the world's most powerful and ruthless corporations and institutions.

Leveraging #COVID19 (& global #protest) for all it's worth, the virus is indeed the new war on terror.

"The Great Reset" - "A better #capitalism and a better world—to help shape the recovery from COVID-19, the Forum has launched the Great Reset Initiative"

I finally got around to watching the Apocalypse Cow documentary (Channel 4, George Monbiot) the other night. Like Monbiot, I do not eat meat/fish or drink milk. I'm still gathering my thoughts on the doc,. however, here are my thoughts thus far.
All nature is now being recognized as an object to be bought/sold, traded on wall street. And this is what perhaps bother me most about the doc. As I can see the intent / purpose behind it. It's not as though Monbiot does not know about the #NewDealForNature. He does.
Consider most, if not all of his "allies" are at the helm or support the #NewDealForNature, led by WEF, WWF, UN, Natural Capital Coalition, Conservation Int., etc. And of course, both Monbiot & Thunberg did the promotional video for CI. #Celebrity is utilized to serve capital.

Goal of @wim_carton talk on #negativeemissions is for everyone to understand twitter joke about #beccs by @DoctorVive & why it’s funny. Great meta #scicomm!
Paris Agreement aims to stabilize climate thru “balance of sources and sinks”. @wim_carton gives overview of various negative emissions tech - all aim to prevent/remove carbon from atmosphere and transfer to land/geology/oceans.
Here’s what bioenergy with carbon capture and storage #BECCS looks like. Burn vegetation for energy, capture carbon. @wim_carton

1. After the 2018 @IPCC_CH report spelled out the difference between a 2 Degree and 1.5 Degree world, here's a few thoughts on tomorrow's #SRCCL report that will put the spotlight on how the way we use our land will affect our odds of hitting 1.5 degree and what this means for EU
2. Firstup, despite the deeply worrying state of land use, the existence of the report itself, ahead of the @UNClimateSummit this September and two crucial COP's next year on climate and biodiversity is an important step forward
3. Secondly, it represents a growing consensus on where the solutions are; restoring ecosystems (in particular peatlands), reducing meat consumption and production, securing indigenous land rights

I interrupt a terribly exhausting writing exercise to share a valuable lesson in how media serves capital.

A lesson in #Spectacle

Feb 21, 2019: 'Kicking Ass for Her Generation': Applause for 16-Year-Old Greta Thunberg as EU Chief Pledges Billions to Curb Climate Threat"...
"...—after weeks of climate strikes around the world inspired by the Swedish teenager—that the European Union has heard the demands of young people..."

#Spectacle

btw - here is the link:
commondreams.org/news/2019/02/2…
"In the financial period beginning in 2021, Juncker said, the EU will devote a quarter of its budget to solving the crisis."

Win! Victory! "Greta Thunberg, literally changing the world"

As we peel back the layers of an orchestrated movement that serves to protect the ruling classes & the suicidal capitalist system itself, we need to look at Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy. This will be a long & important thread. #FridaysForFinance
The Compact of Mayors officially merged w/ the Covenant of Mayors in 2016. The Global Covenant of Mayors [for Climate and Energy] unites more than 9209 cities (already committed) in 132 countries across 6 continents. This represents the world's largest coalition.
The Board is co-chaired by European Commission Vice-President Maroš Šefčovič and former New York City Mayor and U.N. Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for Climate Action Michael Bloomberg. Former UNFCCC Executive Secretary Christiana Figueres serves as Vice-Chair.

Steeling myself with a strong coffee to sit down and read major new report on avoiding dangerous #climatechange (@IPCC_CH #SR15, available here: ipcc.ch/report/sr15/). My takes to follow (1/n)
As always, the #peerreview effort by @IPCC_CH is Herculean. A couple hundred volunteer scientists read & cited 6,000+ studies to support conclusions w/ evidence. Responded to 42,001 comments in 3 rounds of review. The most robust process there is to establish scientific consensus
Now, this #SR15 report title is descriptive, but doesn't exactly roll off the tongue...
