"Attuning to nature’s rhythm has been associated with reduced neural activity in brain areas linked to risk for mental illness and inspired the attention restoration theory...nature replenishes our ability to concentrate and pay attention." @CuriousCortex greeneracresvaluenetwork.wordpress.com/2022/06/06/dai…

Just like it would be nice to move past all the stale old anti-nuclear objections, articles making the case so poorly, lacking any "convincing power", should be consigned to history.

(Although, considering how much of its length it devotes to challenges besetting developing countries, this sort of snark isn't the best look) Image
This is a bad "But". Ambition by Australia will potentially yield considerable effective influence in our whole region.

Which is precisely why such ambition mustn't be limited in #CleanEnergy options.

It isn't virtue signalling, it's virtue. Image

THREAD: Watching today's @FERC monthly open meeting. Among the highlights: a potential final decision to pursue a $20M enforcement case against Energy Transfer over the Rover #pipeline, and action on #transmission line ratings.
And we're underway.
@RichGlickFERC said public will be able to attend next month's open meeting, provided COVID numbers are encouraging.

"In a nation plagued by hidden poverty, what makes us most vulnerable is the basic moral contradiction of poverty, which we have tried to ignore for the past 40 years. 140 million Americans– 43% of adults and 52% of children–are suffering in plain sight." greeneracresvaluenetwork.wordpress.com/2022/05/17/dai…

Ive been pondering why the US hasnt done even MORE to link our #energy policy with national security and the war against Russian aggression in Ukraine and become the arsenal of clean energy for world’s democracies. thirdway.org/memo/making-th… 1/
This would serve three goals: 1) offset Europe’s reliance on Russia fossil fuels and nuclear fuel 2) accelerate the long-term shift to clean energy 3) stand up to petro-bullies as I wrote in @politico politico.com/news/magazine/… 2/
Its also what Americans want. New @washingtonpost and @ABCNews poll shows 73% support US action or want us to do MORE. washingtonpost.com/politics/2022/… 3/

Our analysis of materials released by @IESO_Tweets in response to our Freedom of Information Request

Summary
1. Thirty-two Ontario municipalities, representing almost 60% of Ontario’s population, have asked @ONgov to phase-out gas-fired electricity generation. 1/

2. According to Ontario’s Independent Electricity System Operator’s (IESO) October 7, 2021 (misleading) report,Decarbonization and Ontario’s Electricity System, phasing-out gas power by 2030 would raise residential electricity bills by 60% [page 1].

So you've made that critical, brave decision to step up to the greatest challenge in human history. A #ClimateActionHero is always born asking the exact same question as those born before:

"So...what the heck do I do now?"

Take heart.

You're not alone.

This 🧵's for you
Answering a call to action (after first ignoring or refusing it) is textbook superhero origin story material, which means the first steps of your adventure are already taken. But Climate's been in popular culture since 2006. Something specific's compelling you now. What is it? /2
Something drove the point home to you. Activated you. Take a moment and enshrine it because you'll be explaining it time and time again, to allies, detractors, society's gate-keepers and even future #ClimateActionHeroes just like you. It's #TheBigWhy & every hero's got one /3

I'll be live tweeting the debate on this motion.

As a third party we haven't been given the opportunity to be on the speakers list for the motion. #bcpoli #ClimateCrisis #LNG #oilandgas
Debate on #LNG motion begins with BC Liberal MLA Mike Bernier suggesting that BC LNG can “help” with the transition away from coal.
LNG is not a transition fuel. The methane emissions from #fracking intensify the #ClimateEmergency
MLA Bernier states “we are losing billions in investment.”

No mention of billions in subsidies to prop up oil and gas industry.

Climate change is already costing billions.

Consider the costs of wildfires, droughts, floods.

Australia was just singled out as a climate "holdout" by UN secretary General @antonioguterres . It's rare to see him single a country out like this. What does he mean? 🧵⬇️
👏 Many G20 developed economies have announced meaningful #emissionsreduction targets for 2030.
👎 Not Australia. Scott Morrison still took Tony Abbott's 26-28% emissions target to COP26. This targets is 6 years old.
🥵The COP26 conference was focussed on improved 2030 targets and a rapid phaseout of coal (by 2030). Australia refused, making us a loner among developed countries & a "holdout" on climate.

“We looked at the price of #coal over 140 years. Mines are much more sophisticated, the technology for locating new deposits is much better. Prices have not come down.”

With a fearsome winter storm expected to hit New England this weekend, you’re probably thinking about how to hunker down and stay warm...🧵 (1/14)
As you plan for this Friday & Saturday, you’re probably also hearing frenzied voices panic about the possibility of rolling energy #Blackouts. (2/14)
In fact, @jonchesto was recently one of those voices, writing in the @BostonGlobe about how New England’s “luck” of avoiding blackouts may come to an end. (3/14)

We've seen exciting progress on 24/7 carbon-free energy this past year @Google and in the marketplace. Much more to come in 2022! Here’s a blog and a 🧵 with our recap: [1/10] #cleanenergy #GoCarbonFree #energytwitter
cloud.google.com/blog/topics/su…
As we enter 2022, we're focused on moving toward our goal along 3 parallel tracks:

1- purchasing carbon-free energy
2- advancing new technologies
3- advocating for better public policy

Through this, we’re also supporting a growing ecosystem w/ solutions+tools to drive change
In 2021, @Google purchased nearly a gigawatt of new carbon-free energy around the world, including first-of-their-kind deals w/ @TheAESCorp in Virginia and @ENGIEgroup in Germany. These deals can provide a #GoCarbonFree 24/7 blueprint for others. blog.google/around-the-glo…

What will it do for our climate and communities? (Thread!) Breaking: The House just passed the Build Back Better Act. W
The #BuildBackBetterAct is the biggest investment in climate action in U.S. history, and the biggest investment in social programs since the New Deal.

The #BuildBackBetterAct will fight the #ClimateCrisis.

It puts us on the path to reducing greenhouse gas emissions to 50% of 2005 levels by 2030. This is essential for protecting us all from climate disasters, especially the BIPOC & frontline communities that are most harmed. The #BuildBackBetterAct will fight the #ClimateCrisis.   It
