Holi, @realmadrid, ¿sabíais que si los chicos vuelan en vuestro A380 al partido de Valladolid el domingo emitiréis el equivalente a 6.400 viajes en tren ida y vuelta? Poca broma. Si dedicáis un minuto a leer este hilo, os explicamos cómo jugar limpio también fuera del campo. 👇🏾
Lo de que llevarais camisetas verdes durante la #COP25 para mostrar vuestro compromiso ante la #EmergenciaClimática fue pintón, pero si luego cogéis un avión entero para desplazar al equipo tan solo 200 kilómetros, como que no cuadra.
Esta semana ya habéis hecho un viaje en avión nada menos que a Salamanca. Siendo muy optimistas, cada jugador del @realmadrid contribuyó al cambio climático con una emisión de 90 kilogramos de GEI. En bus o tren habría sido radicalmente inferior. ecologistasenaccion.org/134441/piden-a…

Australia is likely to be a wrecker on global climate change policy in the 2020s and I don't see that much hope of it changing.

A quick thread on why:
Here's the leader of Australia's opposition yesterday, amidst historic bushfires, refusing to link what's happening to government policy on coal:
If people want to know why Australia's government is trying to skate past this crisis, it's because the opposition is giving them political cover.

Sure, Albanese has *talked* more about the bushfires, but he's not offering anything very different on policy, which is what counts.

My annual carbon removal look back thread for 2019!
tl;dr: 2019 saw lots of encouraging, but incremental advances across a portfolio of carbon removal strategies. 2020 will be an important year for leaders across sectors to up their ambition on carbon removal to put global economy on track for Bton/year scale CO2 removal by 2030.
Research: Having had the opportunity to work w/ academic experts like @CarbonWrangler @RogerAines @jwilceclab @ThoughtEnergy @Dan_L_Sanchez @phil_renforth @klaus_lackner, I think lack of funding is the immediate obstacle holding carbon removal researchers back today.

So. Aus' pm was criticised for leaving on holidays while Aus suffers through a very severe bushfire / heatwave crisis, newly intense due to climate change. He

- Went to Hawaii
- Denied going to Hawaii
- Apologised, said he'd come back ASAP
- Was photographed chilling out later:
This whole thing is just so perfectly characteristic of Scott Morrison as a human being, and his broader approach to dealing with climate change.

It isn't just the lie. It's the fact that telling the truth would be 5,000x easier??
Dig back into the history of times that Australia has released emissions data, and you'll find so many instances where the truth was actually relatively manageable, but his gov't just *had* to spin some curvy, whacky story, throwing out distractions and deception.

1. A passagem da @GretaThunberg pela Alemanha está a causar um verdadeiro vendaval na imprensa germânica, valerá por isso recordar passo-a-passo o que aconteceu. Tudo começou com este tuíte:

@GretaThunberg 2. Nele vemos a jovem Greta com ar de backpacker Europa fora e a constatação de que os comboios que ela usou até àquele momento estavam sobrelotados. Nenhuma queixa, só uma constatação que não é estranha a quem quer que já tenha andado num ICE. #DBfail

@GretaThunberg 3. A primeira reação da DB é dar as boas vindas à Greta e assegurar que trabalha duro para melhor o serviço. Tuíte em alemão e com uma tag em vez de se dirigir diretamente a @GretaThunberg - uma falha da etiqueta nesta rede.

La #COP25 se volvió tema de discusión en Chile (por fin), pero leo y escucho con preocupación muchas críticas que confunden las cosas, cómo funcionan esas instancias y lo que en verdad pasó. No caigamos en difundir información falsa.
Mi pequeño aporte acá
👇👇👇
El resultado es un fracaso, lo dice @antonioguterres y todos los expertos que conocen del tema. Para entender en el máximo detalle lo que se logró y lo que no, recomiendo este artículo de @CarbonBrief

Uno de los conflictos se dio con cómo la Presidencia chilena abordó el tema de la ambición en el borrador del sábado y texto final. Aquí en @ClimateHome explican porqué es relevante y porqué en Madrid se le dio la espalda a la acción climática

Thoughts of a 17-year old on #COP25:

First of all, there is very little international news coverage, which makes it hard for people who were not at COP, or involved in the environmental moment, to know what’s going on at the place that’s is supposed to define climate ambition
So let me break it down for you:

1) Only *one* big polluter, the UK, released a plan to cut carbon emissions by 2050

2) Article 6, which decides whether or not “human rights” are to be included in carbon markets, was inconclusive. Hint: human rights are a *must*
3) Endesa, the biggest polluter in Spain, was a diamond sponsor of COP25. If you ask me, they just wanted to greenwash their pollution.

[HILO] WALK OF SHAME: ¿Quiénes conforman la delegación chilena que preside la #COP25?
Se vivieron horas tensas en la COP25. El borrador presentado por la mesa había sido rechazado y Organizaciones de la Sociedad Civil cómo representantes de los países participantes, ya hablaban de un desastre.

"Black people from the global South heartbroken that rich countries are literally signing their death warrants by the lack of action at the...talks. This bloody white supremacy, colonialism & imperialism is the toxic poison that says our lives don’t matter"

Failed to reflect far greater ambition, failed to formalise and increase loss and damage funding..."

El fracaso de la #COP25 organizada por Chile se debe al gran liderazgo internacional y compromiso por el medio ambiente de este gobierno. A continuación algunos ejemplos:
El rechazo al acuerdo de Escazú, porque permitiría demandas internacionales al estado de Chile por no cumplir estándares medioambientales, lo que significaría una “pérdida de soberanía”, según el ejecutivo (¿Y con el TPP-11 no importaba esa soberanía?):

Wer lesen mag, was ich gestern in Wuppertal zu #Polizeigewalt gesagt habe, kann das im Thread tun. /1
#Polizeigewalt.

Dazu gehören nicht nur die Cops, die auf Menschen schießen, sie verprügeln, mit tödlichem Strom, unter Missbrauch von Hunden & Pferden angreifen sondern auch alle Überwachungsmaßnahmen und andere Maßnahmen der Einschüchterung, die wir immer wieder erleben. /2 Polizei bei Ende Gelände
Diese Gewalt richtet sich sehr häufig gegen marginalisierte Menschen, Geflüchtete und andere, die nicht ins Bild der Mehrheitsgesellschaft passen oder die "öffentliche Ordnung stören". /3 Polizei bei decoalonize europe

Horas preocupantes en esta conferencia climática: Brasil y China están empezando a bloquear fuerte en conjunto, y la presidencia sigue cediendo, ignorando que muchos otros países quieren que el nuevo texto incluya metas más ambiciosas contra el cambio climático > seguir hilo 👇🏼
Ejemplo? Frans Timermans le pide a la presidencia de la conferencia de clima: necesitamos más ambición de lo que ahora está en oferta en la #COP25, no podemos decirle al mundo que estamos reduciendo nuestras ambiciones en la lucha contra el cambio climático
Y el pedido no es solo de países: empresas como Unilever, IKEA, ESF, Acciona o Iberdrola, y cientos de empresas y referentes del sector privado están pidiendo lo mismo, tanto públicamente como en los pasillos de la #COP25 . Qué espera la presidencia chilena, entonces?

Horas de tensión en la @COP25CL. Los textos que fueron presentados por la Presidencia chilena, en manos de @CarolaSchmidtZ, son considerados como "totalmente inaceptables" por la sociedad civil y los expertos presentes en Madrid. (abrimos hilo)
“Estamos en las últimas horas de estas negociaciones y lo que vemos aquí es que los últimos textos son totalmente inaceptables. Adoptar esto sería traicionar a todas las personas del mundo que sufren los efectos de la #CrisisClimática y que piden que se tomen medidas”.

(thread on the *end of climate politics*)

(1/x) With the abject failure of not only #COP25, but the entire COP/UNFCCC-process, traditional, Rio-style climate politics is *over*.

The idea that those who cause & profit from the #climatecrisis would somehow find a consensus...
(2/x) ... on protecting the climate with those who suffer under climate injustice has finally been revealed as precisely the illusionist's trick that they always were: we look towards the UNFCCC, all the while the polluters merrily go on polluting, & we do them the courtesy of...
(3/x) sitting down with them, even cheering them on if they meet their measly, insufficient reduction & financing targets.

Enough of this shit.

Ten years ago, we tried to 'Seattle Copenhagen' (where 'seattling' is a transitive verb - you get the idea ;)) (cf. @NaomiAKlein)...

This was my very last experience of #COP25. As luck would have it I was on my way to the exit just as the #climatestrike inside the venue began. I stashed my suitcase in a corner and sat in the floor with hundreds of others.
And some of the tears that I haven't let flow all week finally did during this song, when all the young voices joined in. They are so young and so beautiful, these children and youth from all over our incredible planet.
All they are asking is to be given something I took for granted at their age, a stable biosphere, the precondition for everything else that I may have made of my life.

Here's what I had to say to countries delaying #climate action at #COP25:

Public mobilizations are swamping the streets. The status quo you are working so stubbornly to protect is not working for people or the planet. Rest assured everything will change.
I live and grew up as a settler in colonial Canada and this is only my fifth COP - my experience pales in comparison to my countless colleagues who have been here fighting for climate justice for decades,
to Indigenous Peoples who have been fighting for their rights and the rights of Mother Earth for centuries, to the millions who are watching the place they have called home for millennia burn up or slip into the sea.

Vou contar aqui uma historinha da #cop25 que ilustra como o Brasil, em quatro anos, abdicou de seu papel de protagonista das negociações internacionais sobre mudanças climáticas. Tá meio longo, desculpem, mas é interessante Segue o fio:
Quando o Brasil se comprometeu a colaborar com os esforços mundiais para combater o aquecimento global, disse ser capaz de reduzir suas emissões de gases de efeito estufa em 43% até 2030 sem necessidade de ajuda externa.
O País, cuja principal fonte do problema é o desmatamento da Amazônia, se comprometeu a zerar o desmatamento ilegal até aquele ano. Isso foi em 2015, quando o Acordo de Paris foi fechado. O governo era de Dilma Rousseff. A ministra do Meio Ambiente era Izabella Teixeira.

URGENT: INTERNATIONAL STRIKE THIS FRIDAY, DECEMBER 13TH, IN RESPONSE TO COP25 EVENTS

IMPORTANT THREAD: /1

Please read all of it!
On Wednesday, December 11th, over 300 climate activists, including many young climate strikers from around the world, were kicked out of COP25 in Madrid after protesting for women’s and indigenous people’s rights and calling for ambitious actions from rich countries. /2
The voices of millions of people are silenced at the climate change conference in Madrid. While civil society was kicked out from the COP25, fossil fuel lobbyists remained inside. This cannot be tolerated! /3

[Thread] ⏱️ Aujourd'hui, les Chefs d'Etats reprennent les négociations sur un objectif de neutralité en gaz à effet de serre pour 2050 en l'Europe #EUCO

En juin, la Pologne🇵🇱, Tchèquie🇨🇿 et Hongrie🇭🇺 s'étaient opposées au deal.

👇Suite (et fin?) de l'affaire
2. Depuis, le Parlement européen a déclaré l'urgence climatique et appelle l'Europe à réduire ses émissions de -55 % d'ici 2030 🚨

La neutralité 2050, c'est bien, mais quand c'est suivi d'actions de court-terme c'est mieux👍

9 Etats soutiennent: 🇩🇰🇸🇪🇪🇸🇱🇻🇱🇺🇳🇱🇵🇹🇫🇷🇫🇮
3. La nouvelle Présidente de la Commission @vonderleyen soutient cet objectif, mais LA priorité est l'objectif de neutralité climatique pour 2050.

Comment y parvenir ? Les autres pays du monde, dont la Chine 🇨🇳, attendent que l'🇪🇺 montre la voie #COP25
