[🧵A DEROULER] Nous avons voulu savoir : quels seraient les bénéfices que la Russie tirerait de la #EUtaxonomy si le gaz et le nucléaire y étaient considérés comme “verts” ? #StopFakeGreen
(Pour rappel, on vous expliquait en novembre dernier, ce qu’est la taxonomie verte européenne ici ⬇️)
Même avec des estimations prudentes, les résultats sont choquants

La 🇷🇺 pourrait gagner 4 milliards d'€ /an supplémentaires via de nouveaux projets gaziers qui pourraient être financés grâce à la taxonomie pour un total de 32 milliards d'euros d'ici 2030…

As we remember the #Chornobyl nuclear disaster, we remain gravely concerned at the risk of another nuclear catastrophe due to the war in Ukraine, and we call on @vonderleyen and @McGuinnessEU to withdraw the #EUTaxonomy plan for nuclear & gas

When Russian forces shelled the #Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant in Ukraine in early March, it set off a blaze that was only just brought under control, and shocked the world…
Greenpeace condemned the Russian attack on the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant in the strongest possible terms at the time. We #StandWithUkraine and we abhor all nuclear threats

🧵 THREAD on #uranium investing 2022 (1/n):

To say that this 2022 has been eventful is an understatement. This is true for general investors, but perhaps it’s truer for uranium investors.
2. I’ll run through a quick and simplified list of events (inaccuracies possible) that have shaken, for good or bad, some more than others, the uranium sector in the less than 3 months of 2022.
3. The year began with a BANG! Nuclear inclusion in the #EUtaxonomy. Oh whoa, that’s gonna open the gates of institutional, ESG-focused capital, which will flood the sector and cause stock prices of uranium equities to skyrocket....

Anlässlich der heutigen Präsentation des absurden Taxonomie-Entwurfs ein friendly reminder warum Atomkraft NICHT die Lösung für die Klimakrise ist #EUTaxonomy - Thread 👇 1/9
Atomkraft ist LANGSAM. Vom Plan bis zur Baugenehmigung vergehen Jahrzehnte. Termine werden immer weiter nach hinten verschoben. Beispiel #Flamanville Frankreich - sollte 2008 ans Netz gehen, läuft immer noch nicht. Die #Klimakrise müssen wir aber JETZT bekämpfen 2/9
Selbst die EU-Kommission stolpert über ihre eigene Argumentation Atomkraft sei eine "Übergangslösungen": Gefördert soll alles werden, dass bis 2045 eine Baugenehmigung bekommt... obwohl wollten wir nicht schon 2050 klimaneutral sein? Das geht sich nicht aus. 3/9

(1/8) A few thoughts on the current debate about the #EUTaxonomy on sustainable energy finance, especially the classification of #gaspower and #nuclear.
(2/8) #Nuclear power has a very peculiar risk profile. It certainly is climate-friendly, with small life-cycle CO2 emissions (like wind and PV). But its waste problem and nuclear accident risks are unique. Ultimately a value judgement whether or not these eco-risks are acceptable
(3/8) The true risk about #nuclear for climate change mitigation: Its track record of delays and cost overruns. New nuclear power makes for a very risky and costly bet for reaching climate targets. Just look at #Olkiluoto, #Flamanville, #HinkleyPoint. #FalsePromise?

Breakthrough! Sweden says in @EUCouncil that conditions for #nuclear power should be safeguarded in the #EUtaxonomy. Full quote below👇
"A significant fraction of the Swedish parliament has stated that all fossil free energy solutions, including nuclear, play an important part in achieving climate targets.
And that Sweden, together with other member states, actively should work to safeguard the conditions and future of nuclear power within the taxonomy."

The greenwashing of gas, a fossil fuel, as a sustainable investment has been kicked to long grass⚠️

Why does this spell trouble?🚨It creates new political alliance:

🇫🇷 Gov batting for nuclear industry
🇩🇪Gov fighting for gas lobby

#EUTaxonomy THREAD👇…
Now gas advocates🇩🇪 and pro-nuclear🇫🇷 have the opportunity to join forces and classify their preferred energy source as sustainable🧐

Gas is a fossil fuel🚨

Labelling it a 'sustainable' investment will syphon funds meant to support the green transition and #EUGreenDeal
On TRANSPORT the EU wants to classify...

Dirty cargo ships🚢burning bunker fuel 😷
Fossil gas buses🚐🔥 as sustainable investments🚨

Holding back decarbonisation of European transport, our biggest source of GHG emissions
