1. The U.S. sees a vital role for the Security Council to tackle the negative impacts of climate on peace and security.

U.S. Secretary of State Blinken said this when he addressed the U.N. Security Council on the impact of climate change on security.

2. Blinken said climate change is taken into account at every foreign policy decision because of its devastating implications and the cascading effects on virtually every aspect of our lives, like #agriculture, infrastructure, public #health, or food. theplanet.substack.com/p/the-us-sees-…
🌎

3. Blinken said: "The consequences are falling disproportionately on vulnerable and low-income populations. And they're worsening conditions and human suffering in places already afflicted by conflict, high levels of violence, instability".

Excited to see this new paper published in @RCRjournal : doi.org/10.1016/j.resc…
In this piece, I argue that the #CircularEconomy will remain a mere pipe dream as long as the growth imperative drives the economy. Instead, a post-growth approach to circular economy is required.⬇️
1. Circular economy is often heralded as a panacea that will allow green growth. While CE is trending as a topic, empirical evidence shows that, thus far,↗️ in global GDP have been tightly coupled with ↗️in the material footprint and associated ecological impacts of the economy.
2. Is a genuinely circular economy compatible with economic growth? There are, I argue, two main possible paths: persisting in attempting to reconcile the circular economy with economic growth or adopting a post-growth approach to the circular economy.

A few more things about the #MERUK and Oil and Gas Authority Strategy, before the oil and gas bots get onto it... I compared these word for word, and at the face of it there are a few differences. /I
The strategy's "central obligation" remains that "Relevant persons must, in the exercise of their relevant activities, take the steps necessary to: a) secure that the maximum value of economically recoverable petroleum is recovered from the strata beneath relevant UK waters" /II;
“and, in doing so, b) take appropriate steps to assist the Secretary of State in meeting the #NetZero target, including by reducing as far as reasonable in the circumstances GHG emissions (...) and supporting carbon capture and storage projects” /III

To say yes and no in one sentence?
No mention of pollution, water depletion.
Instead praising the god of electrification.
Which doesn't decarbonise at all
This is how #decarbonth looks like

There is real degrowth:

Writing to people working for Billionaires For Future makes sense.

However, keep in mind there are hundreds of them.
Massive greenwashing & decarbonth network of human bodies.

Their goal is simple:
to destroy Thacker Pass and life on Earth for profit.

Thread:
Sorry, couldn't find Chile's or Nevada's version of this song:

"All I wanna say is that, they (Billionaires For Future) don't care about us"

A heavy industry🏭 deep dive into the @IEA Net Zero 2050 report. Industrial emissions fall by 93% by 2050 relying on a mix of material efficiency, energy efficiency, electrification, H2 and CCUS. THREAD 1/n
There’s a welcome focus on #circulareconomy as a key lever for industrial decarbonisation: Material efficiency alone reduces demand for cement and steel by 20% in 2050. The steel pathway foresees a major shift towards scrap-based EAFs 2/n
But there’s little in the way of a concrete call to action on this lever & I’m curious to hear what others @MaterialEcon @bataille_chris think on whether this truly pushes the boundary on reductions in material consumption? 3/n

It was a good to join @TheWorld’s @MarcoWermer and @BTI's Zeke @hausfath to question the compatibility of our relentless #GrowthDependency and achieving carbon targets. A few reflections on the discussion in this thread 1/7
pri.org/file/2021-04-3…
We all agree that rapid absolute #decoupling of emissions (not to mention impacts on #biodiversity etc) is necessary. And possible. By investing in cleaner technology #renewables #efficiency #circulareconomy #greennewdeal @AOC 2/7
Our disagreement arises from whether technology is sufficient to achieve what’s needed – to stay within 1.5 degrees for instance – without challenging @GretaThunberg’s ‘fairytales of eternal economic growth’ #theredqueen 3/7

#RaisinaEdit | If “Data is the New Oil” then our individual data has intrinsic value and, thus, the monetisation of the collective data of millions of our citizens is the proverbial gold mine, says Abdul Hakeem Ajijola: or-f.org/85352
Economic interdependence, imperatives of political geography, and Beijing’s successful elite capture in many societies have made it difficult for many in Asia to contest the unfolding Chinese dominance over the region, points out @MohanCRaja #RaisinaEdit: or-f.org/85281

Lately, I have been very disturbed with the whole #climatecrisis. Every day some new naturally unnatural calamity looms over our head.
The ice caps are turning in cold rocks and I end up in a rabbit hole feeling helpless.
1/n
It just sucks to imagine a #future where the only way people can enjoy nature as you and I did via #hiking etc is to read blogs and watch videos.
That sucks on so many levels.
2/n
And when I think about the reasons for this situation. I can't seem to go any further but to pin it on #consumption.
Not just fashion or lifestyle consumption. But any damn product.
From the smallest sewing pin to the giant #spaceships.

1. The role of social media in #politics has got to the point that if you log onto your favourite social media site and scroll through your newsfeed for two to five minutes, there is a 93% chance you will see at least one political post. (@JCRED_SJU)

@JCRED_SJU 2. The planet could see a greater temperature increase in the next 50 years than it did in the last 6,000 years combined. This could place 1 of every 3 people alive outside the climate niche where humans can thrive. (@propublica)

Kamu sering buang minyak jelantah ke saluran air?

Minyak jelantah sebaiknya tidak dibuang sembarangan ke saluran air karena dapat menyumbat saluran air dan tentunya mencemari lingkungan baik air dan tanah.

(Thread)
Lapisan minyak di permukaan air dapat menghalangi masuknya sinar matahari & menyebabkan kerusakan ekosistem perairan. Selain itu, minyak jelantah dapat menjadi kontaminan pada limbah lainnya. Sehingga limbah yg terkontaminasi oleh minyak tidak dapat didaur ulang dengan optimal.
Kabar baiknya, kini Waste4Change sudah bisa bantu olah limbah jelantah kamu melalui servis Send Your Waste. Sebelum mengirim, tanyakan dahulu apakah jasa ekspedisi kepercayaan kamu sudah bisa menerima jenis pengiriman liquid/cairan.

1/ For the #industry sector our #ParisAgreement sectoral benchmarks report focuses on #cement & #steel. All countries can reduce #cement #emissions intensity 90% by 2050. The #USA lags behind. Benchmarks don't differ much, huge progress needed. Full report bit.ly/CAT_PSR_full Image
2/ For #steel, all countries can reduce #emissions in this sector to zero by 2050 & aim for 25-30% by 2030. Huge scrap #recycling potential in #EU, #USA, #China. No new conventional steel plants shld be built. #Fuel switch to #hydrogen, #circulareconomy bit.ly/CAT_PSR1 Image
3/ #electrification of #industry combined with decarbonising the #electricity sector is critical. New tech, new materials & material #efficiency needed to decarbonise construction, or risk need for removing #CO2 from #atmosphere. Report bit.ly/CAT_PSR1  #circulareconomy

Seeing that for Equity, the EU GHG budget for near 1.5˚was gone in 2019 tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.10…
and that more than 1.5˚significantly destabilises EU itself, too,

should we go non-profit and on rations for 10yrs with nations we owe GHG to, to transition to RE & #circulareconomy? ImageImageImage
threadreaderapp.com/thread/1286146…
How I calculated the pathway under non-profit and rations: 2021, a few states from EU Africa China begin (US joins last by 2027).
CO2 from 2019-2030 is 300Gt and world CO2 10Gt/a by 2030.

Not within 1.5C budget. But the best we can do AND it instils hope
More on non-profit system hiatus with home guarantees and rations for everything for everybody:
It prevents suffering and unrests and more rightwing powergrabs like after '09. Rightwings ditch climate policy and their nationalism has no DNA for solidarity.

“If we get💰and we keep the supply chains open we can avoid famine. We can stop this if we act now” theguardian.com/global-develop… Their famine is endemic to the Econobscene not yet to climate /Covid. Investors/pirates pull💰out to put into rich/stable states. Moodys downgrades nations.
W/ climate change & w/o solidarity, regional famines from crop losses will pile up. IMO, this decade will be the last where simple food distribution can still alleviate that -IF surreal profit paradigms don't plow under crops bc conserving veggies looks less efficient, ie cheap.
National political fallouts from famines due to Covid/climate or rather due to the unstopped Econobscene and its pirates will be like a sped-up repetition of the spiral after 2008 crisis: Nationalism, more far-right in govt like Bolsonaro, Modi and Trump.
And 0 climate mitigation

Wow!! One of the most outstanding books I’ve ever read.

Sand Talk: How #IndigenousThinking can save the World

A great recommendation for these days!!

Thanks Tyson Yunkaporta. Your book is a gem to be discovered: #wisdom #values

A few years ago, I wrote a post about the #philosophy of Good Living or Living Well from Indigenous People
academia.edu/6528305/_Good_…

I talked about #biomimicry, learning from Nature with humility, and then we could also learn from the wisdom of indigenous people
I've decided to start a month-long project where I'll tweet a “wise” tip about "Sand Talk" every day during April. 30/30

#WiseBoomerang #1 This will be the 1st one.
It's about #humility the antonymous of #hubris. #Communication #DialogicalEthics #Connectedness

We all now eat, drink and breathe microplastics: 1 credit card each week - thanks to "polluter doesn't pay" principle applied to Big Oil: Plastic is from oil and gas but Big Oil pay ZERO for the plastic epidemic. If they did, we would have enormously less plastic around

Act:

Name and shame corporations that churn out the most plastic, especially single-use

Ban fracking

Ban single-use plastic

Mandate reduced production

Champion recycling, reuse and refill
