The #COVID19 is the the global transformational reset button for the fourth industrial revolution sought by those World Economic Forum et al. We witness a global consolidation of power, inclusive of UN & WHO as the 4IR rolls out. Data & nature: the post2020 coveted class assets.

THREAD

So, our @NatureClimate paper was released today and the world knows a lot more about the global impacts of #covid-19 #lockdown on daily #CO2 emissions. @clequere @Peters_Glen @PFriedling

But how has lockdown impacted #emissions in individual countries?
2/
The reductions in global emissions during January and February were driven by lockdown in China, the ‘epicentre’ of the virus outbreak.

International expansion of confinement measures led to deeper emissions cuts in March and April.
3/
The total decrease in emissions reached ~25% in China and India. About two-thirds of the peak reductions were caused by retractions in the industry and power sectors.

The current #ColdWave spell in #Pakistan isn't normal!

Dr Ghulam Rasool, Regional Prog. Manager @icimod, M. Riaz, DG @pmdgov and @atsheikh blame #ClimateChange & #Smog for the prolonged #ColdWave spell in #Pakistan.

My latest for @TheNewsonSunday

@icimod @pmdgov @atsheikh @TheNewsonSunday @Ajazaly @deb_comms @MaximShrestha @julienmh @UNDP_Pakistan @hnaqikhan @tahirrasheed92 @SamanIqbal3 @MattSwaine @viewmagazine Muhammad Riaz DG @pmdgov "The impacts of climate change are evident in the current cold wave episode. (&) Smog led to the formation of N02 (which) was converted to ozone (O3), (blocking) the solar radiation, due to which the day temperature was very close to night temperature.”
@icimod @pmdgov @atsheikh @TheNewsonSunday @Ajazaly @deb_comms @MaximShrestha @julienmh @UNDP_Pakistan @hnaqikhan @tahirrasheed92 @SamanIqbal3 @MattSwaine @viewmagazine Dr Ghulam Rasul, Regional Prog. Manager @icimod, “For past few decades, the monsoon season has been starting early or late. The last 2 decades happened to be the warmest stretch & climate variability & change highly affected winter and summer weather patterns.”

🚜🌎💚 Land use, #farming & how this impacts on #ClimateChange is under scrutiny

Today, the Committee on Climate Change (@thecccuk) have launched their new Land Use report

What does it say, does it focus on the right things and is it ambitious enough? ow.ly/HSDC50y2HXK
@theCCCuk @UKSustain @SoilsAlliance @SusFoodTrust @LandworkersUK @FOLUCoalition @GreenerUK_ @GreenAllianceUK @WCL_News @DefraGovUK @NFUtweets The report comes at a time when #farming, #landuse and its impact on #climatechange is under the spotlight like never before.

This @theCCCuk report will be a major influence on what farmers will be rewarded for doing to adapt to climate change. ow.ly/HSDC50y2HXK
Nature must be given equal emphasis in shaping the future of post-#Brexit #farm support, as #farming and #landuse is also the primary driver of global #insect decline and the #biodiversity crash.

HAPPENING NOW: #RFFlive’s “Making Sense of @FERC’s #MOPR Order.” Watch the livestream on our event webpage: buff.ly/2NjS9g3

#EnergyTwitter #FutureOfPower
@FERC 2/ RFF’s Kathryne Cleary is giving a brief primer on @FERC’s #MOPR order. Some context: @pjminterconnect’s capacity market, which we’re here to discuss today, is intended to promote investment and ensure adequate supply is available to meet demand.
@FERC @pjminterconnect 3/ Cleary: PJM has had an existing #MOPR in place since 2006, which was originally intended for new #NatGas plants to prevent them from bidding into the market at low prices. This MOPR order expands upon that to include state-subsidized resources.

As #Australia reels from unprecedented bushfires, the disconnect between its vulnerability to #climate change and the inadequacy of its government's response is coming under international scrutiny.
We have produced a mountain of research on this -
👇👇 thread👇👇
1/ #Australia is on fire due in large part to #climate change yet the government is looking for ways to weaken the Paris Agreement by using 40 y. o. Kyoto protocol credits to meet its 2030 targets. We show there's no legal basis for this 
bit.ly/Aus_KPCO @TheAusInstitute
2/ Our calculations show just how bad using Kyoto carryover units to meet #ParisAgreement commitments would be for #climate action: an extra 0.1˚C of warming that wld not otherwise hv occurred due to delays in energy & economic system transformation

Great read in @nytimes by @NathanielRich, focusing on the decisive decade when humankind first came to a broad understanding of the causes and dangers of #climatechange.

"More carbon has been released into the atmosphere since the final day of the #Noordwijk conference, Nov. 7, 1989, than in the entire history of civilization preceding it."
"By the end of the 21st century, scientists predict that Switzerland could face a temperature increase of five degrees Fahrenheit because of climate change; by then, a majority of central #Switzerland’s glaciers will have disappeared."

* winter drought '17 in FR/ES/PRT
* summer drought '18 lasting from July to December in EU
* '17/4, '18/4 : +- no drought <-> '19/4 : FR/ES/Balkans
Soil drought in @auvergnerhalpes in line with March DREAL analysis [bit.ly/DREAL-3]:

Today @SynapseEnergy released a new report commissed by @NRDC on the opportunities and challenges for decarbonizing heating in #California buildings. Here is a quick summary thread.
CA's buildings are responsible for 25% of the state's #GHG #emissions and more than half of those already come from combusion furnaces and water heaters.
Switching to efficient electric heat & hot water will have a significant impact on reducing gas use in California buildings. As CA’s electric grid shifts toward clean, #renewable energy sources, #emissions from electric heat will continue to drop.
