Thread: Blatant #ClimateDenial has lost. The new conflict is whether #ClimateChange is a crisis requiring urgent social and #economic transformation, or something we can adapt to incrementally while carrying on with business as usual. 1/40
2/ A recent opinion piece by Bjorn Lomborg in the @globeandmail is representative of the 'business as usual argument'. Let's deconstruct it to see how this gets passed off as the pragmatic point of view, and why it's false. theglobeandmail.com/opinion/articl…
3/ The basic tactic is this: provide a few common-sense truths to gain the air of pragmatism and then feed us the story we're desperate to hear: that everything will be fine, that growth will outpace #ClimateDamages and life can carry on as usual.

Ruminant Animal rearing - the foundation to combat climate change

The reality of climate change isn't really a debate anymore, how much of it we believe could differ, and the extent to its impact differs.

#ZeroHunger #foodsecurity
For example, Northern Nigeria suffers from desertification and those in the Southern coastal line have coastal encroachment.
In the past I took time to explain how the waste products of animals especially cows are a major contributor to greenhouse gas emission (GHG)#ZeroHunger
... and how we can resolve this using the feed.
There is still the issue of desertification, this today is our major issue in Nigeria and must be tackled quickly. The herdsmen can be at the forefront of this battle, the herds (animals) are the weapon.

Some key points from the #ClimateChangeAdisoryCouncil working paper on "Climate Change Mitigation and the Irish Agriculture and Land Use Sector"
1. Ireland is not food independent - exports of meat far exceed domestic consumption while a high proportion of cereals, vegetables and fruit are imported. #foodsecurity
2. The "value-added focus" of #FoodWise2025 may have resulted in a #rebound effect, with the re-investment of income into production expansion.

I think we can all agree that food is pretty important for survival.

Climate Change is already impacting food security- it is not a distant, ambiguous concern: 

More than 1 million acres of US cropland ravaged by floods

"A “whiplash” between very dry periods, followed by very wet periods, is exactly what we can expect from climate change"

Here’s a thread that nobody asked for comparing today’s urgent global problems to dim sum.
1/14 Nuclear Weapons v. Xiao Long Bao: Treat with respect or face intense explosion, third degree burns and worse. Experts disagree on how to handle in a never-ending debate. Also, it’s a challenging dish to make. #globalzero #nuclearweapons
2/14 Climate Crisis v. Chicken Feet: Look, you can’t soft sell this. It’s not chicken “change” for chrissakes. It’s the most intimidating item on the table, and there’s no disguising it for what it is. Deniers are vocal. #climatechange #globalwarming

My latest in @sciam: How does #ClimateChange harm our #health today and threaten it tomorrow? Let me count the ways... THREAD (1/n)

#TheFaceOfClimateChangeIsYouAndMe

1. The frequency, intensity, and duration of #ExtremeWeather events (heatwaves, droughts, wildfires, floods, storms) are increasing, with some of the first and worst impacts occurring in least-developed countries, whose people have contributed least to climate change. (2/n)
2. As average temperatures continue to rise, so will heat-related disorders. One shocking thing I've learnt is that an unforeseen example of human #ClimateCanaries has emerged in Central America , where 20,000+ sugarcane workers have died from chronic kidney disease. (3/n)

Dr M #Karunanidhi was a scientists’ scientist. Among his numerous contributions to Tamil Nadu's development are outstanding universities like Anna University as well as the State Biotechnology Council and gender-sensitive institutions like the Women’s Biotechnology Park.
#Karunanidhi was also keen to see Tamil Nadu progress from food security to nutrition security. Long before India's #foodsecurity Act was introduced, he launched in the 1990s a ‘#Hunger -free area programme’ in order to fulfil the dream of Mahakavi Subramania Bharathiyar.
The former Chief Minister also married #science with Tamil #literature. At the World Tamil conference in 2010, Dr #Karunanidhi announced the setting up of genetic heritage gardens based on Sangam literature in five zones representing kurinji, mullai, neithal, palai and marutham.
