@Min_Ecologie @France2tv @le_Parisien @FondationNH La production de #viande consomme-t’elle beaucoup d’#eau ?
@Min_Ecologie @France2tv @le_Parisien @FondationNH @plumedeschamps @MacLesggy @NathalieMarcha4 @ChouetteAgile @MathieuRobert3 @pdelfortrie @agrihs76 Pour produire 1 kg de viande, seuls 50L à 70L d'eau en moyenne suffisent.
L'idée reçue selon laquelle il faudrait 15 000 litres d'eau vient de la méthode Waterfootprint, qui comptabilise en réalité 3 types d’#eau.

Here's a quick & dirty review of the situation in BC's forests - environmentally, job-wise, etc. Forestry issues used to receive a lot of attention in BC, but oddly they have fallen off the radar & that's suspiciously convenient for multinational timber corps & govts too. #bcpoli
A great letter to the editor from Jim Cooperman was read out on CBC this morning. Jim, who once worked in the forest industry, was a key provincial forest activist with the BC Environ'l Network during the 1990s War in the Woods era & now works on forest issues in the Shuswap..
..."As a long-time forest activist who once worked in the forest industry, my message to the province re: the closure of sawmills & loss of jobs is “we told you so.” For years we have been repeating the same message: that the province’s forests are being overcut ...

Pourquoi il faut manger moins de viande

🚨 Encore un article à charge dans @le_Parisien

Avec bien sûr de nombreuses erreurs que je vous propose de détailler dans un #thread #threadagri ⤵️

@InstitutElevage @ChouetteAgile @agrikol @MacLesggy @agritof80…
1⃣ "il faut 16 800 litres d'eau pour produire 1 kg de protéines de boeuf"
Ce chiffre reprend une méthodologie qui prend en compte "différents types d'eau".
@InstitutElevage donne 50 à 70 litres d'eau par kg de viande vive
@Interbev_fr @cniel
Sur le sujet, je vous conseille aussi l'article de @NicolasBDN récemment mis à jour et son infographie ⤵️
Il conclue sur 351 litres d'eau par kg de viande vive mais on peut difficilement le taxer d'être "pro-élévage" 😉

#FalseAlarm, #fakenews, ignorance...2019 #AmazonFires are only 35% more (ok, so far) than the average of the last 8 years.Most are burning on agricultural land where the forest had already been cleared, a common agricultural practice #deforestation #Brazil…

Anthropogenic #CO2 emissions, combined with #deforestation and increased #human-caused ignitions have created the perfect storm for #megafires in the #Amazon #IPCC2014
Warmer temperatures as a result of increased #anthropogenic #CO2, #detorestation and increased #fire activity can cause #positive #feedbacks that push the #Amazon towards a #tippingpoint resulting in a shift from #rainforest to #savanna forests
A shift from #rainforest to #savanna ecosystems will have global consequences. The rainforest creates its own weather by recycling moisture from the jungle. The trees absorb #CO2 and release #oxygen, literally the air we breathe.

Avec le hashtag #PrayforAmazonia, certains découvrent que des incendies font rage en #Amazonie, notamment depuis fin juillet. Il faut évidemment en parler (#déforestation), mais il faut aussi savoir que, malheureusement, cela se produit chaque année de façon + ou - étendue. ⬇️
Pour commencer, d'où vient le chiffre "Les incendies en hausse de 83% en Amazonie" ? Il s'agit du taux d'évolution du nombre de départs de feu au #Brésil sur la période 01 janvier - mi-août 2019, par rapport à la même période de 2018 (et non de l'année complète).
Soit, selon les chiffres de l'INPE, 74.155 départs de feu au #Brésil entre le 1er janvier et le 20 août 2019, contre 40.136 en 2018 (132.872 sur l'année complète).

When I first came to Borneo in 1990, I flew across the whole island looking down on endless perfect forest. Not any more. Making a program on deforestation and palm oil is so frustrating & depressing. Inside the forest the wild orchestra is deafening. cont...

But there MUST be positivity. Buying and protecting forests is one solution World Land Trust Sustainable palm oil is another; strips of forest within the plantations, encouraging epiphytes and other plants beneath the palms. cont..

The #IPCC special report on the land sector is out.

It's the culmination of the hard work of 107 experts from 52 countries.

I've got some big takeaways. Buckle in – it's going to be a long thread.

Some quick background:

Land and ocean warm at different rates (thank you @RARohde) for the great figure.
Land is both a carbon source and sink. The balance between the strength of sources and sinks determines overall impact of land on GHG emissions. Humans already use a LOT of land (almost ¾ of all ice-free terrestrial surface, according to the IPCC graphic below).

#Brésil🇧🇷| Le Président de la République @EmmanuelMacron, qui a eu l’occasion d’une première entrevue avec le Président @jairbolsonaro lors du
#G20 d’Osaka le mois dernier, m’a demandé de porter aujourd’hui un double message à notre partenaire brésilien. — @JY_LeDrian

RT this [THREAD] of articles if you'd like to ask Twitter's most popular UK political commentators - the vast majority of whom seldom or never mention the Ecological Emergency - for analysis of the politics of catastrophic #ClimateBreakdown, #MassExtinction & #EcologicalCollapse.
Dear @jonsnowC4 @peston @bbclaurak @bbcnickrobinson @afneil

Hi @OwenJones84 & @paulmasonnews
