🤓 so, i was looking at the @MineralsCouncil submission to the nuclear inquiry, which includes this nifty little infographic…

…and low and behold, it's the typical misinformation & truthiness we've come to expect from them.

THREAD on just a few things i noticed…
the world does not have 452 operating nuclear reactors…

there are 449 if you include the 28 japanese reactors that are still out of service 7.5 years after #fukushima.

so more like 421 operating reactors. no biggie, but let's get it right!

no, germany is not extending the life of its coal fired stations "to back up the grid".

in fact quite the opposite — germany is _paying_ coal power stations to leave the market early.

Thread on @EIB economic appraisal of energy investment + relationship with monetary climate impact valuation 👇

Consultation: eib.org/en/about/partn…

Literature: floriandierickx.github.io/library/eib/in…

Statement @EIB #UNClimateSummit yesterday:

@AMcDowell #AskEIB
[1] @EIB Energy Lending Policy (ELP) draft (July 2019) - under review - states to include external climate cost estimates associated with GHG emissions [hyp.is/Hxo-3t7VEem0yV…]

🤔What were related comments received? 👇
[2] Emphasis on cost of renewables: @Grupa_PGE @FluxysGroup @eni @Eurogas_Eu @uniper_energy @EDSO_eu]. In reply, @EIB states that all projects need to pass economic assessment of Energy Lending Policy (Annex II)[hyp.is/eGwQ9N7dEemeit…]

🤔 How is this calculated and applied? 👇

“The science is absolutely clear: #ClimateChange is an existential crisis—one that is no longer a distant threat but a clear and present danger.”

"#HurricaneDorian, reported to be one of the most powerful Atlantic hurricanes on record, is stalled out and barely moving as it pummels the #Bahamas. It has flooded neighborhoods, destroyed homes and left several people dead."

"#ClimateChange is moving indeed faster than we are. The #ParisAgreement states we must limit global temperature rise to 1.5 °C. But current national #ClimateAction plans get us nowhere close. Instead, we’re on pace for a 3 °C rise or more.”

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.

We have just published our Review of Energy Policy: 2018!
Check out the thread below for a summary of all our recommendations.
Read the review in full here: bit.ly/2BsqDqf
On #Transport: The target for phasing our conventionally fuelled vehicles is inadequate. The @transportgovuk ‘Road to Zero’ (‘ICE ban 2040’) may neither hit the target nor make the early gains needed for a 1.5°C trajectory. @_chris_brand_ @jillian_anable
On #electricity: policy should build on Electricity Market Reform that has worked well & adapt in the light of technology/cost changes. Change in ‘black start’ incentives & other ancillary services are needed to ensure the system remains resilient @energyukcomms @ngcontrolroom

How Total is integrating #climate into its strategy?
1/6
We are positioned in fast-growing #lowcarbon markets, which means we offer an #energy mix whose carbon intensity is steadily decreasing.
2/6
In support of this change, we have created a tool for measuring the #carbon intensity of the #energy products we make available to our customers. That metric indicates the average of our products’ greenhouse gas emissions.

With legislation committing California to 100% carbon-free electricity sitting on Gov. Brown’s desk, I wanted to share a timely new peer-reviewed article out today in the journal, @Joule_CP: cell.com/joule/fulltext…
In the paper, @nsepulvedam, @FdeSisternes, Prof. Richard Lester and I use detailed power system modeling to identify strategies that lower the costs and increase the odds of reaching a zero-carbon electricity grid. Check out MIT News coverage of the paper: technologyreview.com/s/611987/how-c…
After ~1,000 cases covering possible future tech cost, regional diffs in renewables quality & demand, and different limits on CO2, our study consistently demonstrates the best way to zero out electricity emissions is to deploy a balanced mix of low-carbon electricity sources.

Tweeting this morning from the @GlobalCCS annual #CCS policy forum. The focus this morning is “what’s next” for carbon capture technology and policy.
.@GlobalCCS_Brad mentions a glowing statement released yesterday by @IEA praising Congress' recent extension and reform of 45Q tax credit for #CCS: bit.ly/2GoeCUR
“That’s one of the rare times I’ve seen them put something out that enthusiastic about a policy measure taken by any country in the world,” @GlobalCCS_Brad says of @IEA’s comments on 45Q.
