1/ With all the talk about France's latest law on mandatory #solar roofing of car parks above 80 spaces, we think it's time to start talking about other symbiotic solar relationships 👇🧵
2/ Although car parks and roof buildings are optimal unused space in urban areas, there is also the need for #offgrid electricity ⚡ in rural areas which often rely on diesel generators when solar 🌞 PV isn't available.
3/ Also, climate change 🌎 is making #farming yields increasingly uncertain, and many farmers want to diversify their earnings to become more resilient

Who wants to be in a business where you can go bust from one year to the other?

The Earth’s climate is in crisis, and we must act now. During #COP27, world leaders are discussing how to address the challenges posed by #climatechange. A new Focus issue by @NatureHumBehav and @NatureClimate highlights the role of human behaviour in adaptation & mitigation. 🧵 Image
In 12 original pieces, our authors discuss some of the aspects that are central for mitigation of and adaptation to #climatechange. We have also curated a collection of research articles from across @NaturePortfolio:…
Our two editorials offer an introduction and an overview of all pieces.

🚨🌍 Global Carbon Budget 2022, out now!🌍🚨

It provides the latest update on how we humans have tampered with Earth's remarkable system of #carbon stocks and flows.

So what are the take-homes from our latest update?

@gcarbonproject @PFriedling
It's a story of persistent high global #CO2 emissions, but with some hints (and some hope!) that *total* human #emissions are levelling off.

(Although with considerable uncertainty in the land use change emissions).
But did anyone mention that we need to get that red line 👆 to hit zero to meet the commitments made in #Paris?

Live from #COP27 on military and conflict-related emissions 🧵

Retrieved from Dr. @AxelMichaelowa's and Mrs. Deborah Burton's (@_TPNS) inspiring interventions.
The #UNFCCC currently allows the exclusion of direct and indirect #military emissions in national #carbon accounting, when they represent an estimated 5% of global GHG emissions.
Although data is too limited to be assertive of such estimates, military and conflict-related emissions would account for more emissions than international civil aviation and shipping combined. Yet, the topic remains overwhelmingly ignored in international climate negotiations.

The precise composition of biogas depends on the type of feedstock and the technology used to produce it. The main technologies applied are:
- Biodigesters
- Landfill gas recovery systems

[1/16] Noch ungefähr ~16 Stunden bis das #XRPL #Amendment "NonFungibleTokensV1_1" (XLS-20) aktiviert wird und somit L-1-native #NFTs auf dem öffentlichen #XRPL das Licht der Welt erblicken.

Ein Überblick über alles, was für die #XRPCommunity jetzt wichtig ist.

Ein Thread 🧵👇 XRPL Amendments registry - vote ETA for "NonFungibleTok
[2/16] Jedes Asset, außer #XRP selbst, kann auf dem #XRPL als Token aus-/dargestellt und gehandelt werden. Zu den "austauschbaren"/"fungiblen" Tokens gehören:

• Stablecoins
• Gemeinschaftskredite
• [I]nitial [C]oin [O]fferings
• Utility Tokens
• Eigenkapital-Tokens
• usw..
[3/16] Im Gegensatz zu den fungiblen Tokens, können [N]on [F]ungible [T]okens nicht durch andere Tokens ersetzt werden. Sie sind demnach nicht einfach nur einzigartig und daher meist sehr wertvoll, sondern auch in ihrer Eigenschaft auf dem #XRPL als #NFToken Objekt unteilbar. NFT pictures

1. Tuesday 🧵PART 2. Before we talk about #ClimateChange, we might have a look at what happens to all the #Carbon coming off the bogs and into the rivers and lakes, i.e. the transport of terrestrials stores of Carbon to the sea. This is a great infographic from the @c_cascades Infographic showing how car...
2. Current estimates put this at about 5.1 Pg of C per year, although most people expect this to rise, considering the high uncertainty, ongoing anthropogenic impacts, and continual refinement of the science…
3. One of the parts of this carbon is Dissolved Organic Carbon (DOC) which is the brown colour that you see in bog streams – those of you with water supplies coming off bogs will be familiar with this kind of change

1. Good morning 👋
Tuesdays 🧵Given that most of #Mayo has #Peat soil, it should come as no surprise that the water flowing through the Burrishoole catchment is full of #Carbon, giving the rivers and lakes their typical brown, dark colour

2. There’s nothing particularly special about Lough Feeagh. It’s a fairly typical, deep, #Humic lake (45m deep), similar to many lakes that you find in all the mountainous regions along the west coast. It’s a pretty nice place to work
3. The impacts of #ClimateChange & #LandUse that we measure in Feeagh, therefore, are likely to be replicated in lakes in any of Ireland’s blanket bog catchments (to varying degrees). We'll look at #LandUse change 1st, and how it impacts rivers and downstream aquatic ecosystems

#PwC's latest #NetZero #Economy Index finds that the world needs to reduce the #carbon intensity of #economic activity by 15.2% a year - 11 times faster than the global average achieved over the past 2 decades.

#SCM plays an important role, but how?
The proper assessment of #Supply #Chains and the #traceability of all processes are key factors in the correct identification of vulnerabilities, inefficiencies and #carbon #hotspots.
But how will this be possible if we still maintain the same siloed centralised data structures which rely upon archaic regulatory standards and current centralised communication & data pipelines?

1/Thinking of #trees #peat #carbon and #nature and #fires. When are Victorians (without hysterics @theage ) to be made fully aware of the State #auslaws over fines in State Parks for picking up a rock, walking off track and so on. @DanielAndrewsMP/2
2/As it is now there are hundreds of shooting licensed people walking off track. Hundreds of thousands of feral deer, xrabbits,x pigs (latter two a food, anti #poverty source that cannot be culled by shooters) already damaging #native wildlife.Protecting #Indigenous locations/3
3/ @DanielAndrewsMP is key but to lock up (by fines) large areas is #segregation and discrimination. To lock up but then ok if you pay — is a cynical misuse of power. It would be good to hear from #Indigenous Victoria as we already know the value of the birthing trees was/4

Desperate response of CEO Drax Will Gardiner ⁦@ddwg⁩ to ⁦@BBC⁩ Panorama “Green scandal exposed” shows great opportunism. But repeating the so-called 'sustainability credo' of energy industry does not make industrial tree burning ‘green’ or ‘clean’ (2-8)

Under current Brussels incentives for biomass in the RED, many Member States fund their energy companies to cut down and burn forests for energy production. Total financing amounted more than €20 billion. But the ability of forests to fulfill their functions as..3

En días pasados nos presumían que México está bajando emisiones de co2; tratando de aminorar el argumento ambiental en el sector energético.

Dos anotaciones:

1. Esto no significa que podamos contaminar más. La apuesta por la generación fósil nos aleja del net zero.
2. La generación eléctrica estimada por CFE, según lo compartieron en el parlamento abierto, subirá aún más la generación con carbón (45.11% para 2024) y por lo tanto, las emisiones.…
Además de ser inconveniente para nuestra matriz energética, para nuestra salud y para nuestro medio ambiente; la generación basada en #carbón sigue fomentando la actividad minera irresponsable y sin rendición de cuentas.

🧵While it’s popular these days for Republicans to bash the #Manchin-Schumer proposal, look closer and there are things that pro-energy conservatives should like in the deal. Specifically:
1. #Drilling: significant increases in onshore and offshore drilling.

2. #Renewables: wind and solar subsidies/tax credits are contingent upon the granting of drilling permits (protecting against a Biden Admin "bait & switch").

3. #Nuclear: funding for nuclear investments.
4. #Carbon: funding & rules for carbon capture—allowing firms to keep current power plants open longer—giving the US a longer runway to reach its "energy transition" goals.

5. #Batteries: requires high levels of local material in production—curbing incentives to build in China.

Yesterday, I was in a #TwitterBeef with this person over #WindEnergy & it being cleaner than producing & burning gasoline. I said that "Windmills don't require #carbon to run." Each post was more frustrating than the last with this guy. So much so, I missed the obvious counter.
His claim was that because windmills require oils for cooling and lubrication, carbon is required for them to run. "To run." To produce energy. I should have shot back with this analogy.
Engines need coolant & oil, but don't require either to run. They require a fuel to produce the energy to force the piston down & create torque. Windmills produce produce energy BY HAVING WIND TURN THEIR BLADES WHICH TURN GENERATORS.

1/ #EUETS #carbon reform gets through Parliament. Now Council‘s 27 members have to reach their views. They tend to sail much closer to the law. And then it goes to Trilogue discussions. So whilst Parliament’s view is important, it is not final. Summary of Parliament view
- 2030 target slightly tighter: c64% instead of EU’s original 61% proposal
- One-off reductions of 70mt in 2024 and 50mt in 2026
- CBAM kicks in 2027 ramping up fully 2032 (prior 2034) with corresponding reduction in free allowances
- Market access getting Commission to -> 3/
produce a report in July 2023 assessing impact of restricting access to physical allowances. Frankly, this just shows a massive naivety: the vast majority of speculative elements happens in the options/derivatives market

1/ The role that yield has played in the rise of #crypto is undeniable. Sustainable yield is a different story. Join us as we deep-dive into earning yield on #Carbon, and how the protocol maximizes your returns in a secure manner.

2/ Don’t let your cryptoassets sit idle. Earn passively (be it a bear or bull market) with Carbon — the DeFi protocol that puts your assets to work, so you don’t have to. There are 2 key ways to earn passively with Carbon:

⚡ Staking
🌊 Liquidity rewards
3/ Staking⚡

Carbon operates on a dPOS mechanism, rewarding stakers for securing the network. As $SWTH emissions inflate at a decreasing rate, the floating supply of SWTH reduces as development ramps up, calibrating a balance between sustainable yields & rewarding early adopters
