1/10 Tomorrow, @EU_Commission President @vonderleyen will make her 1st #SOTEU speech. The #VdLCommission’s been off to a good start with an ambitious #green agenda & the #EUGreenDeal, but the real test of her green credentials is yet to come...
2/10 Our #EU experts @manondf + @Pieter_de_Pous will be live-tweeting highlights during tomorrow’s #SOTEU speech at 9:00AM CEST.

If you’re interested in #euclimate be sure to follow along! In the meantime, here are some major areas we’ll be looking out for 🧐👇
3/10 Pressure by many including @Fridays4future and a #Green wave during last year’s @Europarl_EN elections left @vonderleyen with little alternative than to elevate the #green agenda to unprecedented prominence.… #SOTEU @QuentinGenard

I don't use my real name on twitter because I can't afford to.

I have multiple environmental complaints and disability discrimination challenges lodged with various state or statuatory bodies, and am trying to gather information on others, with the end goal of legal action.
I have also left or turned down jobs due in research due to the mining influence on academic freedom in science, and public service jobs over the politics and suppression of information in Qld.

Then there has been the personal and police intimidation.
Police intimidation at legal protests is sadly not unusual in Qld, under Joh or Dutton.

But I was concerned about the Fixated Persons Unit intimidating environmental whistleblowers here, and the environmental focus of police raids, attempts to change protest laws in Qld

👏@IEA for publishing such a great work on #innovation #energy #climate
Here are my 6 takeways from this 400p document #Thread
Full @IEA document here 👉…
1. We can already cut global emissions by 55% with already commercially available technologies (i.e. early adoption + mature). But we also need to further develop technologies to get to #NetZero
2. Technologies for #buildings renovation and ligh-duty #transport are already largely there

🌦️ How will #ClimateChange affect future temperature and precipitation in #Europe?

We have collected 8 different methods looking into this question! Check out our new @AMSJCLi paper for a comparison and discussion 👇…

Main takeaway: 🌡️ Under a high emission scenario we have to expect 2-3°C of additional warming in #Europe by the middle of the century.

🌍However, exact numbers across methods vary in several regions (such as Northern Europe)!

Our paper confirms earlier results finding a drying 🌧️☀️ in the Mediterranean but at the same time the divergence between methods is considerable and needs additional research!

“Please move. It’s too scary.”

⁃ Request of a relative in response to a post of mine abt the #wildfire 🔥 situation in CA.

🧵 Here is a thread about why this is a terrible take. (1/)

#naturaldisaster #climatechange
First, is it just my fam who should move away from a scary #wildfire-prone area or everyone else on the entire inflamed US West Coast? Or what abt ppl who live near any of the other 100s of MILLIONS of hectares that burn around the globe annually? (2/)…
And where do all of us on this planet who are afflicted by #wildfire move? Someplace w/ hurricanes? Derechos? Floods? Earthquakes? Volcanoes? Extreme heat? Sea level rise? (3/)

Curious week. It's now very clear the world’s top 4 emitters – China, US, India, Russia – are all getting hit hard by #climate impacts which are having huge material & human costs…
This week China’s national climate centre warned the country is heating faster & contending with faster rising sea levels than the rest of the world…
All that while China battles horrendous floods that have affected 63 million people, left 219 people dead or missing & caused at least $26 billion of economic losses.

This morning at NSW energy supply & resources inquiry, we're hearing from MUA, CFMEU Mining & Energy and the AMWU. MUA starts strongly saying they represent workers at coal export terminals and also support efforts to prevent global warming over 1.5 degrees #climate #nswpol
Peter Colley for Mining and Energy is also making a lot of sense about involving workers and the community in consensus-based planning that leaves no one behind
And Chloe Smith for the AMWU is calling for a local transition authority and government investment in diversification: "Workers and community members need to demand a place at the table"

A thread. “Fear” versus “hope” in #climate communications. How about brutal honesty? @richardabetts @hausfath @GreenRupertRead @AlexSteffen @jembendell @RogerHallamCS21 @aubreygci @BreakthroughCCR @ClimatePsych @paulgildingr @ExtinctionR @SafeClimate @ClimateStrike 1/x
2/x On #climate “fear” versus “hope”, David Wallace-Wells says that “fear is what animated me… to go back to the Second World War analogy, we did not mobilise in that way because we were optimistic about the future... “…
3/x “... We mobilised in that way out of fear, because we thought Nazism was an existential threat. And #climate change is obviously an existential threat and it is naive to imagine we could respond to it without some people being scared”, says @dwallacewells.

Canada's #5G rollout

"A larger number of connected devices will result in huge increases in data that need to be stored in energy-intensive #data centres, which are expected to emit more #carbon than the international #aviation industry."

"It also means an exponential increase in the # of wireless networks, which are energy-guzzlers (est. to be 10x less efficient than wired networks). In 2015 alone, the energy used to power wireless networks generated approx. 30 megatonnes of carbon, the same as 4.9 million cars."
"There are no published long-term studies... As one US Senator put it, w/ #5G, “we’re kind of flying blind here, as far as #health & #safety is concerned.” For this reason, 273 #scientists & #doctors in the EU have signed a declaration calling for all 5G [] to be stopped."

Lockdown emissions fell during the pandemic, especially from transport, as we were told to #StayAtHome

We know this from the mobility data that @apple and @google released, using it reflect how emissions from various economic sectors changed for 123 countries #funwithdata

Assalam o Alaikum
Eid Mubarak.
Me and my child are both sick. The other day I reported mistreatment here which led to a person connecting me to a journalist whose offer of help I didn't take up bc first I had to explain that I indeed wasn't making it up. (Got to do a drill.)
Then the journalist was approached by the macabre hound @bernardGrua who is working harder than #Epstein to protect a pedophile named #AlamJanDario who runs the guesthouse #PamirSerai and tour company #PamirTrails in #Chapursan. You can obtain info on him from intel.
This had nothing to do with @BernardGrua and I wasn't about to tell the journalist about this terrifying battle I'm too exhausted, I cannot stand heat since a near-fatal illness in 2012 which is what brought me to mountains. You can check that in my post-mortem. Go for the chest.

"SLOW WATER" is what I'm calling the way we can adapt to avoid the increased flood risk of 48 percent of global land area by 2100, and 52% of the population, per a new study from @nature
I've been reporting on people who are innovating Slow Water solutions for my upcoming book, as they ask a bold question that inverts our control freak tendencies: What does water want? #slowwater #water #climate
#Climate change is amplifying floods and droughts, but our development -- urban sprawl, industrial agriculture -- and the way we’ve tried to control water – dams, levees, channelizing rivers -- are making these disasters worse. #slowwater #water…

This morning @EUCouncil agree on historic 3y spending to kickstart the economy (750Bn€, w/ 390Bn grants & 360Bn loans) + 7y #EUbudget to invest in the long term (1.074Bn€). Before @Europarl_EN decides on this deal, let's see what’s in it: the good, the bad and the ugly. #Thread
Good n°1: Good news: there is a deal, and we are in July. I personally did not expect them to find an agreement before the fall, so having a deal in mid-July is already a positive piece of news in itself.
Good n°2: The overall architecture has not changed. Yes, less money will be invested than what was originally proposed (more👇), but we still get a reasonably sized budget (1.074bn€ over next 7y) + significant input of fresh money (390Bn€ in grants) that is good for #recovery
