Perceptions of #dog breed temperments are ingrained in our culture. Breed #stereotypes play out in dog parks, show up in city ordinances & leases, are celebrated at dog shows, and infuse Hollywood movies... but what if I told you dog temperment doesn't work like that? 1/n Morpheous from the Matrix "But what if I told you"

TY @innodim for inviting me to speak! My cognitive PEM wouldn’t let me be great but I appreciate her encouragement & summary! Want to be sure my main points are clear in re to Black Maternal #Mental Health, Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders #PMADs, & disparities.#AIMART #BMHW22
I am no expert, so I'll share what I know. Black mothers are more at risk of #PMADs & are less likely to receive treatment b/c the structural social & economic inequities as a result of #antiBlack #racism & #misogynoir in this white supremacist patriarchal society.#BMHW22
“Close to 40% of Black mothers will suffer from postpartum depression [(PPD)]” OR ‘Systemic racism & sexism harm Black mothers which manifest as PPD for a reported ~40%.’ Addressing these risk factors associated w PMAD is key:
Lack of access to high-quality medical care

"The erosion of meaningful culture, the domination of corporate & state media [] the loss of a knowledgable audience. And as one sees w/ the Russophobic response to Ukraine, the entire pandemic only served as a precursor to some complete mental collapse."

"And perhaps the best place (or one of them) to start is with ideas of #autonomy, #AI, and #tech (#media). For #automation and the internet have both, in their own ways, contributed hugely to the layers of mystification surrounding everything in the #capitalist west today."
"#AI seeks to achieve the same control over mental processes that #scientific management sought to achieve over physical #labour [in 2nd industrial revolution] through a process of rationalization, fragmentation, mechanization and routinization."

The global carbon market is booming, it’s expected to reach $22 trillion by 2050.

So where did it all start?

A thread 🧵 of how a Mormon missionary and a future Reiki Master started it all in the 80’s

#CarbonCredits #CarbonOffset #Netzero
👇 (1/9)
In 1987, Applied Energy Services (@TheAESCorp) planned on building a ~180 MW coal-fired power plant in Connecticut.

The #coal plant would produce ~14 million tons of CO2 emissions over its lifetime.

Global warming was already making some waves & AES was concerned

👇 (2/9)
AES' CEO was former missionary & @HarvardAlumni - Roger Sant @santroger

Rogers’ "least-cost energy" strategy was revolutionary at the time.

@TheAESCorp's focus was minimizing the cost AND #environmental impact of #energy services.

So they needed a “green” solution

A thread on Environmental Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) compliance ....
Chapter 1 Introduction:-
* Overview
* ESG criteria
* Strong & Weak ESG Propositions
* Why ESG ?
*Overview -
History :- The concept arose in 2001, following the launch of the "FTSE4Good Index Series," with the goal of encouraging UK pension funds to consider social, ethical, or environmental (SSE) issues.
In 2002, they implemented environmental management criteria, followed by human rights criteria in 2003 and supply chain labor standards in 2005. As a founding signatory, the FTSE4Good then introduced the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) in 2006.

Thank you @IWS_Network for giving me the opportunity to share my #story 💜 ! This a part of Voices Without Frontiers program iwsnetwork.ca/voices-without… #IWS #WomenInSTEM #VoicesIWS #ecology #conservation #biodiversity
I was born in #saopaulo, #Brazil’s largest city, very different from the #Amazon Rainforest & Rio! See me and a #samauma, the most famous Amazon tree 🌳
Also me & @IsabelaHissa in front of Sao Paulo’s #MASP (Modern Art Museum) & me and my mom in #Rio! #VoiceIWS @IWS_Network Image
I can say I lived in a great #rainforest because Sao Paulo & most of the coast of Brazil are in the Atlantic Forest 🌴🌺🐍. It is one of the 34 world’s #hotspots of #biodiversity, with more than 1500 plant species and 90% of original area loss. #VoiceIWS @IWS_Network Source: https://www.e-educa...

The political momentum for reforming the #EU 🇪🇺 #fiscal framework is larger than ever. We are excited to share our freshly published feasibility & impact analysis of the reform proposals with you: zoe-institut.de/en/publication… (1/15)➡️ Image
Recovering from the #pandemic and simultaneously achieving #environmental, #social and #economic goals requires large amounts of public funding and therefore ample #fiscal flexibility for #EU member states. (2/15)
And with all eyes on #COP26 this week, and the discussion about the scale and pace of investment for #ClimateAction high on the agenda, the discussion about how to create the fiscal flexibility for investments such as these has never been more timely (3/15)

Despite the torrential rain ⛈️ the turn out was big, showing how strong the resistance is towards the false solutions to tackle #ClimateChange being proposed at the #IUCNcongress.

The plan to turn 30% of the world into Protected Areas by 2030 (30x30) is a distraction from the real causes of #environmental destruction - instead it puts a price on #nature & allows big business to profit.

Since climate activists, politicians on all sides, and policy makers are more smooth brained than the apes, let me provide a clear solution to the #renewableenergy and #ClimateEmergency situation we face as a nation, and more widely as a planet.
Firstly, it is clear that oil, natural gas, and other fossil fuels damage the environment. This fact is known, and is widely agreed on all sides. Good.
However, a rapid 5-10 year transition to wind and solar alone is not an adequate solution to deal with these issues. They do not yield enough energy to meet the current and future needs of energy production the world's population needs.

- Over the past few years, the #government has proposed to #amend several #environmental #laws and create entirely #new ones.
- The government has also proposed very large #industrial and #developmental projects which would effectively ruin the environment of the areas. [1/10]

This project would drown almost the entirety of the #PannaNationalPark, a richly biodiverse national park, hosting tigers, leopards, and even critically-endangered #vultures.

Western but more importantly #African #conservation biologists and #communities have clearly evidenced the well managed hunting - inc trophy hunting - is a valid utilitarian conservation tool that is need to protect land from converting to agriculture or development /1
This is because the real and present danger for large and charismatic wildlife in #Africa is habitat loss and quality - including human-wildlife conflict - where #people are effected or killed by such #wildlife and retaliation on wildlife occurs - e.g. /2
While stories of #human hardship in living with #wildlife - and the same dynamics of wanting to develop and use land never reaches UK news - what does is dangerous mis-information from a range of sources but mainly western and #celebrity backed #NGOs /3 conbio.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.111…
