1/Thinking of #trees #peat #carbon and #nature and #fires. When are Victorians (without hysterics @theage ) to be made fully aware of the State #auslaws over fines in State Parks for picking up a rock, walking off track and so on. @DanielAndrewsMP/2
2/As it is now there are hundreds of shooting licensed people walking off track. Hundreds of thousands of feral deer, xrabbits,x pigs (latter two a food, anti #poverty source that cannot be culled by shooters) already damaging #native wildlife.Protecting #Indigenous locations/3
3/ @DanielAndrewsMP is key but to lock up (by fines) large areas is #segregation and discrimination. To lock up but then ok if you pay — is a cynical misuse of power. It would be good to hear from #Indigenous Victoria as we already know the value of the birthing trees was/4

Exposed! The Nature Conservancy falsely promotes logging as a #climate solution. Stop #greenwashing the #forest industry! grist.org/energy/logging…

Follow the thread for details… Image
💰The Nature Conservancy's “mission” is to conserve the lands & waters on which all life depends. IRL, they promote #logging and wood products as a solution to the #ClimateCrisis.
💰TNC aligned with biomass giants - Drax & Enviva via the Forest & Climate Working Group.

"In the fullness of the #Anthropocene, what does a hard look at the relationships between #ecosystems and economic #systems in the broadest sense suggest about our collective #future?"

"Before articulating prescriptions, we first need a comprehensive diagnosis of the patient. In 2019, we are beyond a #piecemeal listing of what’s wrong. A coherent description of the global economy requires a #systems view"

#systemism
"Ecological economics acknowledges that real economies are completely dependent on energy. However, orthodox economic theory remains blind to this reality. As a result, so do our institutions and our citizenry. The disconnect has massive implications for our future."

Current research on microplastics is the stuff of nightmares-

They’re dangerous, they’re spread through our food, they're in the air... they’re everywhere

Thread 1/x
#health #ClimateCrisis #PlasticPollution #food
Much of the research is trapped behind paywalls, and only reported on in a limited, fragmented pattern

-like so much else when large corporations cause environmental damage and impose widespread health impacts on the public

2/x
#health #ClimateCrisis #PlasticPollution #food
The growing risks of microplastics are a direct function of an ongoing push by the same sociopathic corporations that are driving the climate crisis

- #Dengue risk will increase with longer seasons and a wider geographic distribution in #Asia, #Europe, Central and South America and sub-Saharan #Africa, potentially putting additional billions of people at risk by the end of the century
- A billion people projected to be at risk from coastal-specific climate hazards in the mid-term under all scenarios, including in Small Islands. #ClimateCrisis #ClimateEmergency

1/ @avalancheavax is a highly customizable #Layer0 that enables the development of an infinite number of #blockchains on top.

It can support the adoption of #EVM for any custom VM that implements the innovative #AVAX consensus. Image
2/ The #AVAX #protocol has the only #consensus capable of #scaling the active validator list while maintaining high transaction performance, sub-second finality, and unmatched #decentralization.

It is composed of four mechanisms: Slush, Snowflake ❄️, Snowball, and Avalanche
3/ #Avalanche #Consensus uses “repeated random subsampling” to vote: when a validator #node receives a transaction, it randomly queries other validators until the network achieves consensus.

X-Chain, C-Chain, and Platform Chain are 3 #blockchains making the Primary Network Image

Everyone knows the term cryptocurrency

But few understand what blockchain technology is and how it's revolutionizing industries across the globe

A list of information on why you should research blockchain technology

--Thread-- Image
1. Blockchain is the underlying technology that cryptocurrencies are built upon.⛓

Yes, it's more than a digital currency.

Blockchain / DLT (distributed ledger technology) provides an immutable, digital ledger that is always updating with transactions happening in real-time. 📖 ImageImage
2. What are the benefits of using Blockchain or DLT?🤔

Check out the pictures below to see how DLT technology will revolutionize industries. 👇

Shout out to @MikeQuindazzi for his awesome benefits infographic

Who's ready for another jab in March? Roll up your sleeve (again) for #Pfizer 1.1:

CEO Albert Bourla, Jan 10, 2022: "And we know that the 3, the 2-dose[s] of the #vaccine, offer very limited protection, if any."

#4IR #BiotechEconomy #GeneEditing #mRNA #Crispr

Thread 👇
Bourla con't: "The 3 doses w/ the #booster, they offer reasonable protection against hospitalization & deaths... Now, we are working on a new version of our vaccine, the 1.1 [] that will cover #Omicron as well."

Bourla: "... we are waiting to have the final results. The vaccine will be ready in March, & [] we'll be able to produce it massively."

Yahoo: "I want to quickly talk about the #kids... under 5... the company has said that it's going to need to be a 3-dose vaccine..."

📣🚨 New article🚨📣

Do digital #ecosystems render traditional market definition (TMD) obsolete? In our new @EU_ScienceHub empirical WP (bit.ly/3DefTti) we argue that this approach is not obsolete, but needs to be complemented with alternative ones. Here is why 👇🧵
First of all, 𝘄𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗲𝗰𝗼𝘀𝘆𝘀𝘁𝗲𝗺𝘀? “A set of actors with varying degrees of multilateral, 𝘯𝘰𝘯𝘨𝘦𝘯𝘦𝘳𝘪𝘤 complementarities that are not fully hierarchically controlled" (@jacobides, @CarmeloCennamo, & @AnnabelleGawer, 2018, emphasis added). Image
⚠ Vocabulary caveats. In the paper:

a) "nongeneric complementarities in consumption'' = "demand-side linkages"

b) ''traditional market definition'' = ''substitutability approach''

2/3 The 1-acre plot was earlier used only for mangoes. So black gram, a nitrogen-fixer, was sown on the unused ground. This ground crop acted as shelter for several reptiles, amphibians, insects, an #EcologicalBenefit
3/3 The ground crop also prevented #SoilErosion to a certain extent. In addition, the harvested black gram meant a profit. Related video about a farmer who has attempted #agroforestry

@AgroBioCongress @MaximoTorero @PhrangRoy @tania_eulalia @FAO considers #IndigenousPeoples as key allies in eliminating hunger & malnutrition. Indigenous Peoples have unique systemic approaches to food systems, which hold important lessons for sustainability. - Dr. @MaximoTorero #EatGrowSave #Biodiversity
@AgroBioCongress @MaximoTorero @PhrangRoy @tania_eulalia @FAO Why are #IndigenousPeoples' #FoodSystems game changing? Because they are based on:
1. A holistic vision
2. Solidarity
3. Knowledge
4. Complex diets
5. Resilience
I encourage all to join the Coalition on Indigenous Peoples Food Systems

Have you read the @LancetCountdown’s new report on health and climate change? Check out @UHF_groups’ key takeaways 🧵👇 Image
1) Climate change is impacting weather, #ecosystems, and human systems. This poses a threat to human #health. For example, young children, older people, and marginalized communities are more susceptible to health risks associated with high temperatures and #heatwaves. Image
2) High temperatures can reduce the frequency and duration of physical activity. Without #exercise, people are at a higher risk for cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and other #NCDs. Image

1. Suppose an alien spaceship will land on earth next week.

After many light-years of travel through space, some friendly little green creatures decide to get out and stretch their legs on our planet.

What would they report home?

2. I guess their first description would be ecstatic.

Hidden in the fast, cold, and dark universe, they discovered a blue planet that brims with an incredible diversity of life, aided by ideal living conditions.

3. But:

Since the dawn of civilization, humanity has lost 83% of all wild mammals and half of all plants.

Of all the mammals on earth, 96% are livestock and humans, while only 4% are wild mammals.
