Would reducing red meat consumption in Canada do more hard than good? A thread: (1/13)
@epicurious, @FoodSystems, @EATforum – you’ve heard it multiple places: ‘We must reduce meat consumption for climate change, the environment, to reduce our dietary carbon footprints.’ However, what could the implications of this be for #Canada? (2/13)
In a recent @CBCNews article, a researcher suggested that reducing beef consumption by 25% would result in a reduction of livestock related emissions of 10%. Sounds good, but… (3/13)

Today, on #TheMisplacedMenagerie -

We report the exotic (for #India) apple #snail, #Pomacea diffusa, also known as the spike topped apple snail, from the #Mumbai region, as part of our ongoing studies on #urbanwildlife, and the #ecology of introduced species, in #India, Mumbai.
The study was officially published in the 'ELA Journal of Forestry and Wildlife' - a peer reviewed #science journal, which is also the official journal of the #Maharashtra State #Forest Department.

Link to paper:…

Spiked Topped Apple Snails in #Mumbai (and other parts of #India) are the direct result of the #aquarium trade - either as accidental, or deliberate releases from home aquaria.

The definition of #EnvironmentalRacism: (noun) A type of racism perpetrated by the disproportionate location of environmental hazards near economically and socially disadvantaged areas”.
This type of targeted neglect has led to #NeglectedTropicalDiseases that have led to the underlying conditions of #COVID19 in #ADOS✊🏾communities throughout America; specifically the southern states.…
What were once known as #NeglectedInfectiousDiseases in impoverished Third World communities are now know as #NeglectedTropicalDiseases that impact historically neglected #ADOS❤️communities throughout the South and in impoverished areas in America.

THREAD - What happened at the Huanan #seafood market?

The @WHO report is quite clear on this point: #SARSCoV2 might have jumped from a wild animal sold in this market and maybe other markets in #Wuhan. But what do we know exactly? 1/15

#originsofSARSCoV2 Image
After all this time, the Huanan seafood market still remains the main suspect for a simple reason: most of the early cases had visited at least one market in Wuhan city, and several of them visited the Huanan market. 2/15 Image
According to the report, 10,000 people visited this place every day, making it a perfect setting for an #outbreak. One might argue: what about the cases without market exposure? Good question! 3/15

“The United Kingdom has fallen. There has been a right wing coup in this country... . And nobody noticed. We did not notice because it was years in the making. We did not notice because when it came, it came in a blonde wig and a mask of buffoonery.
We did not notice because it lied to us and hid its true intent. We did not notice because the #foreign manipulation was hidden from us and continues to be hidden from us.
We did not notice, because the #lies when they were discovered were hidden by more lies, until lack of #truth became normal acceptable.

In-depth individual interviews of 25 #women #workers at the Ambassador Bridge produced #breastcancer risk understandings & agency narratives.

Kathy said: “put us all together, and pretty soon you have just got lots of stories that all have the same ending.”

A thread

The research captures & explains layered & multifactorial influences on women’s narratives of #breastcancer risks & related agency and to see how #health and health knowledge are constructed in a #nested set of relationships.

Multiple information sources influenced #women’s #breastcancer risk and agency narratives.

Social, cultural & experiential information were all included.

#Workplace & #environmental exposures & socio-cultural aspects of work & environment were critical to the narratives.

#Wonk warning: a #thread on social cost of #carbon (SCC). We at @CVEPLLC expected @JoeBiden not just to reinstate higher SCC in his #dayone #climate order but also to look at incorporating #environmental #justice into it.

He did, and it matters. #OOTT /1
Background: when #federal #agencies write rules, they try to maximize net benefits or minimize net costs.

The goal is that adding up all benefits for (and costs to) society + all costs to (and benefits for) regulated parties should be > 0. /2
In this context, SCC offers a way for agencies to “monetize” societal benefits of #climate rules. Oversimplification version: Benefit = (tons of GHG avoided) * (SCC, in $/ton). There are couple of quirks, tho. /3

The lack of consultation on authorising #neonics is unacceptable🚫

As has been previously evidenced, it will be very hard to prevent these #pesticides making their way into plants & rivers, thereby damaging our #wildlife

WE BELIEVE: Emergency authorisations like the introduction of #neonicotinoids in #farming are a short-term crutch that will stifle innovation and long-term thinking💔

It’s vital we think of #SUSTAINABLE & #ENVIRONMENTAL methods of protecting our crops against pests, instead


A) Look at a long-term strategy for a #sustainable future for sugar beet in the UK - addressing its role in rotations, health issues, farm incomes, jobs & the environment 🚜

"How can non-financial information reporting work for SMEs?" Looking forward to hearing @larawoltersEU keynote speech at the event organised by @AccountancyEU @ACCANews @EACB_News @SMEunited

.@larawoltersEU "Banks and investors are requiring more information on companies' due diligence and non-financial reporting. This can lead to cheaper loans"

#NFR #UNPG #disclosure
.@larawoltersEU at @AccountancyEU event: SMEs should be covered by #humanrights and #environmental due diligence legislation under proportionality principle and using a #risk based approach; guidelines should be produced & if possible supporting funds could be considered

The Epoch Times National Poll was conducted by Big Data Poll and interviewed 2,169 likely #Voters nationwide sourced via voter file-verified online survey panels from Aug. 26 to Aug. 30, 2020.

Here were the findings (Thread👇)…
“Mr. Biden’s edge with seniors has slipped, and the president is outperforming his minority vote share from 2016 by a modest but statistically significant degree.”

#JoeBiden holds a potentially dwindling lead over President Trump, and voters expect the incumbent to win.
#Biden leads among female voters 49% compared to Trump at 35%, while Trump leads with male voters 46% to 41%.

In rural America, where #Voters are currently the most enthusiastic about voting in November, the president leads 52% to 36%.

Over a week ago dry lightning struck my part of California which is something we've never seen before. It caused an unprecedented amount of wildfires that has covered the entire area in smoke. It's been so hard to breathe, I'm just dreaming of the days when I can go outside again Image
This is no doubt all exacerbated by climate change, and the fires in turn will accelerate climate change in a downward spiral. I'm guessing this is something we'll be experiencing a lot more in the future. Image
I hope the people of this shared earth will put aside their differences and protect our planet. We can all vote for green policies and reduce our carbon footprint as much as we can. Our future is in our hands.

1. #COVID19 has overshadowed much of government's policy agenda including the response to #ClimateChange. Now, the green agenda will have to battle for prominence during the economic recovery phase. A short thread on the likelihood of a green recovery by @jbuckland13 and @Gilesyb
2. The impact of #COVID19 on global carbon emissions is one of the few silver linings to the current pandemic. As countries have gone into lockdown, emissions have fallen dramatically with early analysis putting us on course for the biggest fall on record. @IEA
3. However, the impact will be short lived. As measures are relaxed, business & industrial energy use will return and emissions will pick up. Politicians will focus on getting the economy motoring again, superseding #environmental interests in the short term

Tonight I'm going to share highlights from the 2010 "Scenarios for the Future of Technology & Int'l Development" report produced by The Rockefeller Foundation & Global Business Network. Not just the "Lock Step" scenario, but all 4 scenarios. [54 page report]
Following Event 201 (Oct 18 2019), we must concede that the ruling class has been gifted with phenomenal and prophetic intuitions & insights. (They truly are the chosen ones.) Thus it is worthwhile, even mandatory, to study their scenario exercises & simulations.
"We believe that scenario planning has great potential for use in philanthropy to identify unique interventions... scenario planning allows us to achieve impact more effectively." [p 4]
