If your #body becomes very pleasant we call it a #pleasure

If your #mind becomes pleasant, we call it peace; if it becomes very pleasant we call it a #joy

If your #emotions become pleasant we call it a #love; if they become very pleasant we call it #compassion
If your life #energies become pleasant we call it #bliss, and if they become very pleasant we call it #ecstasy

If your surroundings become pleasant, you call it #success
A #seeker on the path of #awareness knows that #Pleasure, #Peace, #Joy, #Love, #Compassion, #Bliss and #Ecstasy are all different states of #Body, #Mind and #Energy, not the achievement milestones you can #conquer in an external world.

Hi guys! @AtteHarjanne and me just published a paper "Abandoning the concept of #renewable #energy" at Energy Policy. In it, we argue that the concept of #renewableenergy (RE) is outdated. 1/

First, a link to the paper that should work until Feb 14:

sciencedirect.com/science/articl…
What we argue here is that using what is basically a 1970s-era definition of renewable energy, and conflating "renewable" with "sustainable" or even "clean," is becoming more a hindrance than a help in meeting the main challenge of the early 2000s - #climatechange . 2/
We argue that the concept of RE was largely set in stone well before the magnitude of #climate challenge, and actual problems with some sources that are technically renewable, was understood. This has resulted to, e.g., using the "renewable" label to cover all bioenergy. 3/

@RyanMKellogg Emissions of CO2 lead to global heating and therefore to untold damages bourne by future generations. Some economists, e.g. William Nordhaus, have used cost-benefit analysis to estimate a social cost of carbon, which then becomes a recommended carbon tax. /1

@GrumpyDaddd @Futureworldxxl Reality-Check: #Germany has 1% of the global population & wants to safe the #earth by charging among the higest #energy-prices on earth? Sounds more like a bunch of idiots allowing themselves to be ripped off big time!
#GreenEnergy #ClimateChange #Klimawandel - Part 1
@GrumpyDaddd @Futureworldxxl 2. At the same time Germans happily use their #iPhones, produced in #China by near slave-labour under conditions that are far from green.

German #Chemical companies happily produce in #Shaoxing, #China with a pollution (I have seen it) which takes your breath away! #Bayer #BASF
@GrumpyDaddd @Futureworldxxl 3. And the missionaries of #ClimateChange & #GreenEnergy, like @LeoDiCaprio, are the biggest jokes: Talking about climate change, but leaving a carbon foot-print the size of a village, with their #yachts, private #jets & several #villas with several servants! #ABigCon!

France presented today its #energy and #climate strategy. It has four goals:
1 - To cut #energy consumption
2 - To turn away from #fossilfuels
3 - To diversify its #energy mix
4 - To keep things affordable, increase jobs and innovate medias.businessimmo.com/default/0002/3…
The overall target of France's strategy for #energy and #climate is to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 through cutting GHG emissions down significantly and also increasing carbon sinks
France wants to cut #CO2 emissions down to 227 Mt in 10 years by cutting final #energy consumption 14% and primary #energy from #fossilfuels by 35%. Also, increasing #renewable heating and doubling the #electricity from renewables. Note: transport emissions vanish by 2050.

0/ Investors breathed easier today as the price of large-cap digital assets like #bitcoin [ $BTC ] and #ether [ $ETH ] managed to hold steady.

Whilst many were glued to the charts, I was trawling through the interwebs for the latest from the world of #crypto. You're welcome 😉
1/ 📣 Fresh from launching v1.1.3 of its #mainnet, @NULSservice [ $NULS ] detailed the design architecture of NULS 2.0 in the below 23-page paper.

Allows #NULS to be more than just the underlying infrastructure of the #blockchain. Many more uses to come! nuls.io/api/v1/downloa…
2/ ⛏️ @UbiqSmart [ $UBQ ] has successfully hard-forked to #Ubqhash.

Having done so, Ubiq is now decoupled from #Ethash and, thus, is no longer vulnerable to rental hash attacks. This marks the first time an #Ethereum fork has forked to a PoW mining algorithm.

0/ The #crypto and #blockchain space can get awfully noisy. Below, the bits that caught my eye over the past 24 hours or so.

21 events compressed into a humble #Twitter thread. Enjoy!
1/ 🙋‍♂️ @IOTAtoken [ $IOTA ] made hires #52 and #53 for 2018 via Andreas Penzkofer and William Sanders.

The former is an electrical engineer and physicist specializing in analytical and numerical methods. The latter, an academic focused on commutative algebra and category theory.
2/ 💡 Australian #blockchain startup @PowerLedger_io [ $POWR ] upped its presence in the U.S., announcing the deployment of its P2P renewable #energy trading platform at licensed retail electric provider @APowernet's Pennsylvania HQ.

0/ Such a full-on 24 hours for the #crypto/#blockchain space! When is it not?

Too much to take in? Fear not, I've got you covered, and have put together a thread of 24 events - one for each hour? (🤷‍♂️) - that caught my eye. Let's go!
1/ 🤝 @FantomFDN [ $FTM ] partnered with @Danfoss, a multi-billion-dollar #energy/#IoT manufacturer & service provider.

The Denmark-headquartered company will work w/ #Fantom to "explore the possibilities of accelerating the development of the microgrid." medium.com/fantomfoundati…
2/ 🆕 The @AERGO_io team published the mother of all blog posts. And why not! For it unveiled both the AERGO Chain Alpha & the AERGO pre-testnet.

Click through for more on their consensus algorithm (i.e., BFT-dPOS), Client SDK, and what's next for #AERGO. medium.com/aergo/releasin…

Why do we keep falling short on #carbon pricing? (And what to do about it)

A thread on how policy can accelerate the pace of progress towards a low-carbon #energy system commensurate with the threat posed by #climatechange...
Putting a price on carbon.

The IPCC report on holding global warming to 1.5°C released Sunday calls for it. A share of the Nobel in Economics was awarded to William Nordhaus this week for championing it. It's arguably the most efficient and powerful climate policy available.
So why do governments around the world keep falling short on carbon pricing, and how can break this logjam? I discussed these challenges with the @NYTimes @BradPlumer in an article appearing in yesterday's paper. nytimes.com/2018/10/08/cli…

Trump and Mussolini: 11 Key Lessons from Historical Fascism

Italian fascism provides a better model for our moment than Nazi Germany—and the comparison is not encouraging.

By: @Anis_Shivani for @AlterNet
Thread ✔
1/
Fascism is a religion. The 20th century will be known in history as the century of fascism.
〰️ Benito Mussolini

2/
I’d like to draw some comparisons and contrasts between our present situation and that of #fascist Italy between 1922 and 1945. I choose fascist #Italy rather than #Nazi #Germany because it has always seemed to me a better comparison.

Today much of the world's population lives safer, more comfortable, healthier, longer, more productive lives than ever before. And yet, around half of the global population currently lacks access to enough electricity, and 1.2bn people have no access at all. #IPCC 1/n
Global electricity access is rising, which is improving the lives of millions. But this means our decarbonisation challenge is even greater, since we not only have to replace our entire fossil fuel infrastructure, but probably double it to meet rising global energy demand. #IPCC
The question is where will this energy to come from? A: Right now, mainly from #coal. #IPCC

How Total is integrating #climate into its strategy?
1/6
We are positioned in fast-growing #lowcarbon markets, which means we offer an #energy mix whose carbon intensity is steadily decreasing.
2/6
In support of this change, we have created a tool for measuring the #carbon intensity of the #energy products we make available to our customers. That metric indicates the average of our products’ greenhouse gas emissions.

1/ Well, it's the first full week of the final month of the quarter. Know what that means? Time for my quarterly U.S. #Energy #Storage tweetstorm! As always, I'll be sharing highlights from WoodMackenzie P&R/ESA's report, the U.S. Energy Storage Monitor.
1a/ To be clear: WoodMackenzie Power & Renewables (P&R) is the new brand of the former GTM Research!
2/ Q2 2018 saw the U.S. market grow 42% QOQ to 61.8 MW! The behind-the-meter market accounted for 75% of MW deployed.

@cjjacobsJacobs @CDU @JuliaKloeckner @annewill 1. Various questions need to be asked:
a) Is the #earth getting warmer? Answer Yes (but was ven warmer in the past)
b) Human impact on climate (CO2)? A: Yes, but science differ on size of impact.
@cjjacobsJacobs @CDU @JuliaKloeckner @annewill 2.
c) #Germany produces 2% of all CO2 - So if we all live in tents tomorrow & only ride bicycles will it make a big difference? A: No, but the Chinese & Americans won't stop laughing!
#AnneWill #Klimawandel #ClimateChange
@cjjacobsJacobs @CDU @JuliaKloeckner @annewill 3.
So I like a debate on points a) to c) purely based on #science (and "a consensus of paid lobbyscientists" is not science, but politics) & come up with workable solutions.
PS: Currently #China produces around 26% of all man-made CO2.

Don't give up your freedom of speech. The Media has. They want to herd you like sheep. They are the true Enemy of the people. #Trump is just the vehicle of their control. #FakeNews #FreeThought Be a Leader of your own mind, not a follower of theirs.
They are trying to destroy our #Republic. They want to control you and chances are they already do. Remember how things used to be, before they injected the hate into our #society. "They" profit on #war, your #debt, and #disease.
They have put #US in debt to the tune of 20 trillion+ #China is in debt, #Russia is in debt, #Europe is in Debt, etc. They manipulate countries into #war and then lend them money to fight. (both sides).

1/ NEW EPISODE: As Trump speeds up #oilandgas drilling on #publiclands, Native American artifacts- scattered all over large swaths of land in Utah - are at risk of being destroyed. ow.ly/B9Zn30kYF1x
2/ It all started last spring with Trump’s executive order pushing for America’s energy dominance: bit.ly/2HrsYn1

@jennoldham & @LeighSPaterson traveled to a remote corner of Utah to find out what this policy actually means on the ground.
@jennoldham @LeighSPaterson 3/ #NativeAmerican artifacts are everywhere in SE #Utah. After a long drive down a dirt road, @jennoldham & @LeighSPaterson stumbled across these ancient carvings and the remains of a wall.

Are you #Emotionally #Repressed?

How do the kids say it nowadays? I feel #calledout?
I've gotten much better,but i can still recall a time when I thought the epitome of feeling good, was feeling nothing
Seriously, if you're #reading down the #list going, "That's me, that's me, that's me, and oooooo is that EVER me!"

I'd definitely #recommend getting some #help with the matter.
It's taken years to be #comfortable in my own skin.
Years of breaking the old records in my head

-And as #Ralph would say, Totally worth it!

It's a freakin #relief, to cry a tiny bit in a #movie theatre at a moving point in the film, without having to expend all the extra #energy in "did someone see me?"
#exhausting!

and that's just one tiny perk :)
