Its #ClimateWeekNYC, so its climate🧵week

Yesterday I wrote one⬇️on how the Biden admin can work w/ state & local govts to go further, faster on climate (also lol I called it the Investment Reduction Act)

Today: 3⃣ exciting "force multipliers" in the IRA
Ok so first of all, there are a lot of really great climate investments in the IRA. There's also some bad stuff. But it is really hard to choose the most exciting provisions, imo. These transformational $$ will help build a just and thriving clean energy economy.
Amongst the tax provisions, the clean power tax credits with direct pay for non-profit entities, and the clean manufacturing tax credits, are two of my favorites.

And then, at DOE there is the new $6 billion Advanced Industrial Facilities Deployment Program, and there’s the…

For me, this geeky data table is essential for #ClimateWeekNYC

#IPCC's analysis of climate solutions x all 17 #SDG's - health, education, security, economic stability etc.

Darker the blue, the better the correlation between climate action x wellbeing.

That's a lotta blue.
For those looking for the source - it’s in Chapter 5 of IPCC AR6 Working Group 3 report from April 2022.

Here’s the link… and the graph in context with full references
For a user friendly version- try Futerra’s synthesis report here:…

Let's start w/ the ruling class imperative to rebrand #capitalism (Oct, 23, 2020) - in order to save it.

Schwab: "At the forefront [we need] to create a new model,
a new concept, a new definition of capitalism...

Schwab, continued: "the old definition comprises only financial capital. But actually human & social capital, [] & of course natural capital - is as important as financial capital."

We'll be live tweeting soon: #ClimateWeekNYC workshop on Climate Activism…
We begin with a soulful acknowledgement by workshop leader Cecilia Lim of the land and the original inhabitants of New York City - the Lenape
We have an anti-oppression framework and a practice of deep listening.

We’ve learned to feel better than or worse than other people.

Healing, from our perspective, involves emoting, for example crying and laughing.

The organising, informing, showcasing and commitment making at #ClimateWeekNYC is carrying on and the @ClimateCLG team will be hard at work contributing, but I'm stepping out and heading home and thought I'd jot down a few reflections 1/n
First up, it's worth noting that given a call to do more, raise ambition, face up to the climate challenge, then actors across the world have responded. 2/n
Countries have committed to raising their climate targets, they have pledged more money to fund resilience and the climate transition, they have set exit dates for coal and deadlines for hitting net zero. 3/n

Closing perspective on U.S. Back in Paris: Ending U.S. Greed and Isolationism #ClimateWeekNYC
I grew up loving the US. As I became aware of what we did in Vietnam, and as I learned more about the civil rights movement, I feel conflicted.

On the one hand, a model of press & religious freedoms. But this country was built on stolen land, genocide, enslavement, imperialism.
It's easy to feel shame about being a US-er, but shame can distort and limit us as environmental activists.

I think we should all work to love the US, and the people in this country.

But I'm furious, and we need to be angry.

@NewEconomyNYC We begin with a land acknowledgement, recognize the centuries of the Lenape people living on and caring for this land
@NewEconomyNYC We will talk about how the same systems that had a devastating impact on these people are the systems having a devastating impact on the earth.

These systems affect our ability to feel good about ourselves, to think, to do our work.

Workshop begins on "Backing #Women and #Girls to Lead in #SustainableAgriculture" #ClimateWeekNYC

We are glad to have participants from @CAREGlobal, @nature_org, @girlscouts, US State Dept office of Global Food Security, and so many from around the world working on #UNSDGs

Yesterday, at an interesting #ClimateWeekNYC panel on fighting denial (organized by @ColumbiaClimate, @Sallan_Found, @earthinstitute, & @ClimSciDefense) @jeffnesbit made some excellent points I want to circulate.

First point: Nesbit reported that his research shows that trying to inoculate teenagers against tobacco advertising by telling them that smoking will make them die before their time doesn't work. But....

Telling teenagers that they're being targeted and manipulated by tobacco companies who are shamelessly trying to addict them actually *does* make them much less likely to take up smoking.
