A thread about what’s going on in #louisville right now. I’m going to touch on the “failing school” narrative, structural racism, and reform for our city. I am a dad, a tax payer, and a principal for @JCPSKY

#louisvilleprotests #wearejcps
For my students that read this, think about the points I have here, reflect on them, and balance them with your breasts experiences. You will be in a position soon to do something about it.

I am a principal of a predominately black school. We are among the highest free and reduced lunch count in our state. Our students have many barriers and roadblocks in front of them. I work with good people who actively work to remove them #iroquoisbelieves

What are the implications of excess global financial market volatility on economic growth? Are there threshold effects in the relationship between growth & excess global volatility for individual countries? How should we model the nonlinear effects in a multi-country setting? 1/n
We answer these questions in recent work with Alexander Chudik @DallasFed, M Hashem Pesaran @USCDornsife @TrinCollCam, @mraissi80 @IMFNews & @arebucci1 @JHUCarey @cepr_org @nberpubs:… #TGVAR 2/n
The #Covid19 #pandemic has been a shock like no other, initiating simultaneous demand and supply disruptions. In addition, it led to a sharp tightening in global #financial market conditions during the first quarter of 2020. 3/n Image

These countries have some form of #carbontax since the '90s or 2008 in🇨🇭. 🇸🇪now at €115/t.
If your country is discussing carbon pricing bc narrow-minded economists pray to the God of Voluntarism, stop listening. If at all, it's not working fast…
More on EU countries with carbon pricing and their current price per tonne of CO2:… The range in old EU states is from €23 in Denmark, to, among others, 52€ in Norway, 65€ in Finland, €86 in Switzerland to €115 in Sweden.
Leah has a new thread / article on it:
With tiny global budgets left, how wd we scale up the price fast enough to get an educational effect on consumers and producers? Economists assume abundance, not Paris-compatible budgets for WELL below 2˚and #Equity

Take a look 👀at this thread 👇🏾 to read excerpts my opening remarks at the @sodexoUSA virtual conference on building resilient businesses & communities! #CommunityHealth
(2/9) “We weren’t in the best of shape going into the pandemic. We had high rates of obesity & diabetes, high rates of poverty & income inequality, & though we had low unemployment & a robust economy, not everyone was benefiting…”
(3/9) “When the pandemic hit, it made things that much harder, especially for people who were not thriving to begin with. We need to figure out how to come back stronger from the pandemic and thrive together.” #SDOH #equity #PostCOVID

With 0 socio-political foresight economists sell climate as discount topic...

But by 2045 at 2˚, 500mio people are vulnerable to multiple climate risks; in Levante and N-Africa an exodus begins at 1.5˚ /2030.
The "cost"? Global destabilisation and fascism.
On #Equity:…
Activists and scientists regard it as optional, negligible charity. But fighting poverty via observing Equity is relevant to national security, to civilisation or collapse. Actions in adherence to it grow a sense of global solidarity and hope.
On #Equity:
Rich nations to "lead the way"is no longer enough for WELL below 2˚and Equity. A growing alliance of states, in a NON-profit system hiatus, on rations for everything to alleviate existential fears, must begin to tackle the 6 global revolutions

10 measures proposed by Zhang Xiaohui, former assistant governor of the #PBC, to promote the #dualcirculation in financial services:…
1. Properly position the financial sector against the new backdrop featuring “dual circulation”. China’s financial system needs to step up a new wave of upgrade and reform. It should give direct #financing a bigger play based on technological innovations.
2. Financial supply-side structural reform shall continue to play a core role. China needs to improve twin-pillar regulatory framework (monetary&macroprudential policies) and make monetary policies more flexible; develop multi-tier capital market; boost #RMB internationalization.

New study on Li in several supply/demand scenarios.

They claim this a 1.5˚-compatible path:
3bn cars in 2050 or 0.3🚗/capita. (EU's density today 0.48 🚗/capita)
of which 49% are assumed EV sales by 2030 or 86% by 2050.

How can it be 1.5˚compatible?!…
1.5˚with 3bn cars on additional global roads?

Repeat – 3-fold, and in 30yrs
our 100yr ecocide in EU and US
in pristine Africa, Asia & S-America?

*🏠sprawl, material and⚡️use
*destruction of biomes, habitat, carbon sinks,
*tyre ruboff
*construction material + machinery
I should expand the list of destruction but
to call that 1.5˚-compatible is ....

TBH, the narrow field of view smacks of the car AND construction industry justifying their existence and growth!
No surprise then that acc to that study, Lithium supply until 2050 for 3bn EV is ✅ Image

Da Altmaier Klima nich kapiert, ist klar, was das ganze soll: bloß ne weitere Hinhaltetaktik zum Machterhalt. Auch Wählerfang morgen zB.

EU-Ratssitzungen sind nich öffentlich; er, Merkel, Scheuer, Seehofer, Schulze, Scholz, werden wie immer mit dem 👉auf andre zeigen, dh lügen.
Dt. Medien erklären #Equity und Restbudget nich. Es wird in seiner Dringlichkeit bez. national security unterschätzt. Merkel/EU brechen Paris/Equity UND Physik mit ihrem 2050 für DE/EU

SRUs Pro-Kopf-Idee reicht nich. Hier ist EU-Budget für 2˚in 2027 alle👇

Im Thread steht auch das Paper, aus dem die Zahlen sind (Abstract auch als Clip!): ne Analyse wieviel Arme bis 2050 von wievielen u welchen KlimaRisiken betroffen sind.

"Wie geht es weiter? Diese Vorlage des Umweltausschuss wird im Plenum des EP im Oktober abgestimmt. Danach müssen wir das Gesetz mit den nationalen Umweltminister*innen verhandeln."

Q: wie können wir vorhersehbare Sabotage verhindern? Wie gehen die vor? Was setzen wir dagegen?✊
Vonderleyen + Union werden verhindern wollen, dass EU-Kommission @TimmermansEU 2021 ein EU-Restbudget noch vor der Bt-Wahl vorlegt.

Bisher arbeiteten CDU CSU mit Hinhaltetaktik, mit wiederholtem inFragestellen von Beschlüssen, mit gelenkten KleinKlein-Debatten, mit Geheimnissen
Das Restbudget in Gt muss VOR der BT-Wahl mindestens im öffentlichen Raum diskutiert werden, damit klar wird, wie weit entfernt davon die Sabotage-Koalition seit 2016 war. So werden jene Boomer sie nicht mehr wählen, denen die Schöpfung und Mitmenschlichkeit wirklich wichtig war.

A tremendous amount of ink has been spilled discussing the supposed quandary of the #equity market’s robust recovery since March, while at the same time #economic improvement has been more uneven and uncertain.
At the heart of this misunderstanding is an apples-to-oranges comparison: the fact is that the #stock #market and the #economy, while connected, are two meaningfully distinct entities.
As a case in point, the correlation between domestic corporate #profits and #GDP #growth collapsed in the 1990s and has hovered near zero for the past three decades. Image

🙏 @ShreyaTrivediMD! Fascinating questions. My answers:
1. #Hesitations - Two things...
A. Already distracted by phone (email, texts, etc.). Will Twitter make it worse? Answer, yes. However, I try to limit my interactions to specific times, and turn off notifications.
B. I work for the Federal Gov. Outspoken for #Equity #Inclusion #HumanRights #HeForShe #BLM #LGBTQIA.

I worried about violations of #HatchAct.

However, can speak about issues, just not parties or candidates.

However, #45 doesn't care about Hatch Act. Should I?
2. My most meaningful collaboration in my career has come via #MedTwitter. @JenniferSpicer4 and I noticed similar ideas and content from each other, then set up 1 meeting, and @MedEdTwagTeam was born. We have never met in person, but have collaborated weekly for months now!

Thanks to @GeoffCutmore & @cnbcKaren for having me on the show this morning.

Here's a short thread of the notes - entitled, "Time to Get Real?" - which I put together in preparation.
They should hopefully be self-explanatory:-

#SquawkBox #CNBC #macro #equities #commodities
You've heard it here before: pay out or pay down is a big part of the #inflation equation:-
Yes, there's a "V" - or at least a flipped square root sign - underway, but will it extend far enough & fast enough?

Indeed. I have seen a side of humanity I wish I did not have to know existed or was that prevalent. Pediatrics is not just handing out stickers and popsicles or looking for purple spotted elephants in ears.
If I am willfully childlike with optimism and naïveté sometimes, it is my survival mechanism to counter the things I have seen done to children. I don’t do cynicism and snarkiness prevalent in the rest of medicine, healthcare #MedTwitter.
And if I am vehemently anti-bully & anti-abuse of trainees/students it is cuz it one space I can assert some control to change culture or enforce protections. Those who use titles of “Professor” or “faculty”, have teaching roles, have power.…

A hopeful 🧵re: improving #globalhealth through #Decolonizingglobalhealth #antiracism efforts—some examples of positive change:

@DGH_LSHTM & #blacklivesmatter groups gathered signatures from 100's of staff, students, & alumni calling for leadership to examine the school's past
...listen to personal accounts of discrimination.

These groups have influenced the hiring of a postdoc to research it’s #colonial history & legacy. We wrote about Her findings & the calls for change from #DGH & #BLM groups & hope the leadership will act.
Other global #publichealth universities like @dukedecolonize @KarolinskaDGH @EdinburghUni @DecolonizeGh (@HarvardChanSPH) have hosted conferences to critically examine & challenge west/white centric curricula

One of my faves is here:

In 2020 ist CO2Steuer /Preis kein viables Tool, außer in Zeitspannen -also in THG-Budgets-, die den Parisrahmen sprengen. Nich mal "well below 2C"ist okay, sieht man sich heute bei 1.2C um.
Man muss die Entwicklung anerkennen, um outside the box zu denken…
Ich meine, dass @greenprofgreen sich nicht an Treibhausgas-Budgets orientiert, die Paris-treu sind 🙄 Aber sie führt doch einiges zusammen, das kulturell aus nordamerikanischer Sicht interessant ist und gegen CO2-Bepreisung spricht. Mir glaubt ja keiner.
Mir glaubt ja noch keiner, aber hier ist trotzdem ein neuer Thread über den Weg, der uns nahe bei 1.5C hält und auch das bisher ignorierte Problem #Equity löst.

Wie klingt das: von 2019-2030 Welt-CO2 300Gt. In 2030 Jahresemission auf 10Gt/a? Cool, oder?

Sharing the #RacialJusticePrime, a tool that help individuals and orgs think more explicitly abt #equity at choice points.

@RaceForward defines choice points as opportunities for leadership to reflect, generate options, and act on decisions that can impact #racialequity. Image
The idea of the choice point is - will be go with the status quo vs a more equitable approach.

And so by regularly considering choice points, cumulative impact will be to create a more equitable culture.
So, the questions to asked in this tool are:

▶️ Who is benefitting from this decision?

▶️How have we equitably included everyone’s voice in this decision? Who are we excluding? How can we be more inclusive in our decision making?

Saw this Harvard document being shared in light of the DES plans for reopening schools. It seems to be getting a lot of praise. Will share some thoughts here as I flick down through it. #edchatie…
Straight away,the Executive Summary is frank&honest. Acknowledges that the return will not be perfect, and there is no perfect plan, only "less bad" options. An absence of waffle is nice. Bear in mind this is for schools in USA, where the government pandemic response is shambolic
Next,this lovely infographic,and it becomes apparent that this document is all about what *could* and *should* be done,as opposed to what we have in Ireland which is a bona fide plan. So comparisons may be harsh. However, it takes into account 3 types of transmission. Ours has 2.
