Gestern Nacht hat das Klimapaket #fitfor55 als Teil des #GreenDeal der EU die entscheidende Hürde im Rat der Mitgliedsländer genommen. Das Verbrenner-Aus war nur eines, und nicht mal das wichtigste Element des Klimadeals. Eine Einordnung:
1⃣ Das Paket an beschlossenen Klimagesetzen liefert nun die konkreten Maßnahmen in Energieerzeugung, Verkehr, Landnutzung, Gebäuden, usw., um die beschlossenen -55% Treibhausgasminderung europaweit tatsächlich und verbindlich zu erreichen. Es ist das größte EU-Klimapaket ever!
2⃣ Gegenüber den bisherigen Klimabeschlüssen der EU erreichen wir fast eine Verdoppelung der jährlichen Klimaschutzanstrengung bis 2030. Und das nicht nur in vagen Absichtserklärungen sondern unterfüttert mit konkreten Maßnahmen. Die Arbeit am 2040er Klimaziel kommt dann!

"Put it simple, this treaty is a major threat to the EU energy sovereignty, #GreenDeal, and #ClimateJustice goals. This timely comic is of high importance to ensure the French Presidency will end the participation of EU countries to this ecocide treaty.” @ysaheb #ExitECT #NoECT Image
"The Energy Charter Treaty is the arguably the largest and most arcane obstacle to climate action. This comic will help you figure out what is going on through thoroughly researched cases. Read, share and convince your politicians to stop the ECT!" @JKSteinberger #ExitECT Image

The original thread on what you are not being told about #EU sanctions on #oil has led many people to address many useful questions. The main questions are : tehnical (why is it so hard to make the transition ) , geopolitical (what we can expect) & operational (what other /1
solutions are possible). Assuming the #EU sanctions against #Russia will be maintained here is what we will happen technically, geopolitically, operationally. 1) technically speaking it is very complicated to change The original thread is here. /2
the #EU reffineries to accept non #Russian oil.There are many different types of refinery and no two refineries are exactly the same.This reflects the type of crude oil which the refinery is designed to process and the demand for specific products in particular markets.Refining/3

Why the #oil embargo #sanctions is a disaster for #Europe & what you are not being told. A thread. Inflation of energy prices are is at all time high. In #USA which is a large producer #fuel #gasoline are up 48 % & 100 % over a year. Situation is much worse in #EU
In fact #EU is pumping more #oil from #Russia than before the #WarInUkraine. The #sanctions decided by the #EuropeanUnion are going to be imposed gradually & touch only #oil transported by sea. But you are not being told the truth . #Energy prices are hitting hard the consumers/2
will continue to grow while #Russia will make more money off gas & exports this year by exporting less, yes you read that right, because when you reduce the offer, the prices go up. But surely our leaders know what they do & have a long term strategy./3…

This excellent investigative report by @corporateeurope, @foeeurope & @bund_net traces the influence of @EU_Commission‘s (De-)’Regulatory Scrutiny Board‘ in weakening the proposed Sustainability Due Diligence Directive.

Key take-aways: 🧵

(2/16) Corporate lobbying of the RSB left its fingerprint on final rules on (1.) companies covered; (2.) tiers of the supply chain covered; (3.) industry self-regulation; (4.) limited victim rights; (5.) weakening of directors’ duties & (6.) weak climate-related obligations.
(3/16) Mechanisms of modern lobbying: While in public perception, EU-level action was seen by most as progressive, business lobby groups saw an EU-wide harmonization as preferable to divergent national rules, especially where (weak) national legislation would serve as blueprint.

🤔 How does the @Europarl_EN decide which committee is responsible for a file? Why were the #DataAct allocated to @EP_Industry while #EHDS went to @EP_Justice? As requested by many, my new #EP thread will explain the opaque steps before #MEPs can finally start to work (🧵👇)
After its adoption by the College of Commissioners and its successive public presentation by the @EU_Commission, the proposal is - in line with the ordinary legislative procedure - transmitted to @Europarl_EN and @EUCouncil in order for the co-legislators to make a co-decision.
Step 1️⃣ the Referral Unit in DG Presidency checks the legislative proposal mainly on the basis of the @Europarl_EN's ANNEX VI in the 'Rules of Procedures', makes a referral to a lead committee and appoint opinion giving committees. This decision is then announced in plenary.

Das größte 🇪🇺-Klimapaket ever steht Mittwoch zur Abstimmung!

Es geht um:
➡️ 🇪🇺-CO2-Handel
➡️ CO2-Grenzausgleich
➡️ CO2-Flottengrenzwerte für 🚗
➡️ Ausbau der Erneuerbaren
➡️ Klima-Sozialfonds

Kurz: Um das 1,5-Grad-Klimaziel & die sozial-gerechte Transformation.

🏭 🇪🇺-CO2-Handel
Der wichtigste Baustein des Pakets ist der EU-Emissionshandel für CO2-Zertifikate. Er deckt bisher ca. 43 % aller europäischen CO2-Emissionen ab (Stand 2021) und soll laut Kommission auf 61% steigen.
Der EU-Umweltausschuss des Parlaments hat nach langen Verhandlungen 67% erreicht, was aber jetzt durch eine fossile Allianz von Konservativen, Liberalen und Rechten wieder auf 61% gekürzt wurde. Damit hängen sie das 1,5-Grad-Klimaziel an den Nagel.

🧵 1/ La debacle #UE sulla questione sanzioni al petrolio russo dimostra l'incapacità strategica dell'attuale leadership europea e quanto l'ideologia fine a sé stessa porti a risultati disastrosi, come purtroppo stiamo vedendo troppo spesso a #Bruxelles (vedasi #GreenDeal)
2/ Molti commentatori politici hanno dimostrato ancora una volta, riguardo all'atteggiamento di #Orban in consiglio, di non comprendere alcune dinamiche fondamentali per capire la politica europea. Prima si sono scagliati contro #Orban burattino di #Putin;
3/ Poi si sono accorti con ritardo che l'opposizione di #Orban era principalmente una questione di interesse nazionale per evitare effetti nocivi sull'economia del proprio Paese, un atteggiamento comune in #UE che solo alcuni in Italia deplorano;

Mucha gente cree que quienes apuntamos a los límites de los recursos, la energía o el crecimiento, somos unos quejicas y no aportamos soluciones, en contraposición a quienes investigan hidrógenos verdes o eficiencias eólicas. Nada más lejos de la realidad porque...
...estamos mostrando un camino (geo) lógico y posible, es más, muy probablemente el único capaz de facilitar un decrecimiento controlado en un contexto de equidad y prosperidad en contraposición a uno de exclusión neofeudalista o ecofascista e incluso de colapso...
Y es el resorte social y personal en contraposición al técnico o exclusivamente tecnológico, porque sabemos que es vía muerta, mineralógicamente ya da señales de agotamiento y aún ni siquiera hemos empezado a transitar por ningún #GreenDeal ni lo vamos a hacer. Es pura fantasía.

1/7 How can the #EU and Member States boost energy savings through effective, socially balanced policy measures? Our latest Policy Paper “Demand-side solutions to address energy shortages” is out now…
2/7 Uncertainty about the supply of #Russiangas is challenging the EU to manage without Russian energy sources. The debate, however, lacks consideration of inclusive #demandside measures that can reduce energy consumption while supporting the EU’s long-term #GreenDeal objectives.
3/7 We have set out the potential of demand-side policies to contribute to meeting a possible energy supply deficit in the scenario of an import ban on Russian energy sources. We show that rapid #energysaving measures are possible and they can have lasting effects.

Understanding the #Russia #sanctions debate in brief!

Financial and Economic Sanctions against #Iran cutting it off from global finance and trade rank 9/10

#Russian sanctions only 5/10 for now.

A lot of room to tighten the noose, of which cutting off #SWIFT is only one part
ALL #Russian banks, big and small, need blocking sanctions. This needs to include the Central Bank of Russia, mirroring the case with current sanctions that operate against #Iran, which has also been kicked off #SWIFT. Only humanitarian, medical & food import funds to be allowed!
The ONLY remaining reason the #EU countries are resisting cutting off #SWIFT and going as far as in the case of #Iran, which is what we need to do, is because we fear (know) #Putin will immediately cut off gas supplies.

Our need for #Russian gas and the #SWIFT issue inseperable

"(...) Europe is now its largest export market for solar products, according to a China Photovoltaic Industry Association (CPIA) report on the outlook for the PV industry over the next few years"…
Due to the energy policy failures in the West especially in the last 10 years, whether in the #EU or in the #USA, the urgently needed #energytransition is currently not possible without Chinese products.
In other words: besides the strategic dependencies on #natural gas, #oil and #uranium, which we feel so much right now, we have created with our eyes wide open the next #dependency also on #solar energy.

Thoughts on how we got here in #Ukraine, what is happening, & what we in the #EU & #NATO need 2 do now

#thread 🧵1/n

Bon courage 2 all #Ukrainian friends & citizens

Admiration 4 journalists on the ground - stay safe

Understanding for #Russian citizens who did not want war
First we need to hang our head in shame. The US was explicit in intelligence readouts saying what has happened would happen. So it's not like we were not warned.

From early December onwards the playbook #Russia has followed was clearly laid out and this was brushed off lightly!
The unified stance of #EU member states, #NATO and the #US looked good, but only because we had been pathetic.

#Russia has been very successful in infiltrating western democracies.

Russian footprints all over, especially on the far right, right, and the @GOP especially #Trump

Wer mich kennt, weiß 🇪🇺 liegt mir sehr am Herzen. Deshalb heute zum europäischen #JahrderJugend ein 🧵zum Beitrag den #Jugendverbände für ein friedliches, demokratisches, nachhaltiges, soziales und vor allem jugendgerechteres #Europa leisten. /1
Kein Europa ohne Europäer*innen, keine Europäer*innen ohne Begegnung. Jugendverbände in 🇩🇪 & ganz🇪🇺 sind organisieren seit Jahrzehnten #Jugendbegegnungen. Im Gegensatz zu Schulbegegnungen liegt der Fokus nicht darauf etwa eine Sprache und damit dann seine Noten zu verbessern /2
Vielmehr geht es darum einander auf Augenhöhe zu begegnen. Aus der Neugierde heraus ein neues Land, eine neue Kultur kennenzulernen. Einander zu verstehen. Vertrauen zu schaffen & Freundschaften zu schließen. /3

Sinds wat weken voert een groep alumni van de @tudelft een hetze tegen hun alma mater en diens rector, omdat de universiteit Frans @TimmermansEU een eredoctoraat wil geven. Zoals hier in @ADnl.
Als actieve TU-medewerker kan ik het niet meer aanzien en moet ik wel reageren. 1/19
Allereerst: de TU Delft verleent elk jaar een of meer eredoctoraten (drie in 2022), gekoppeld aan een thema. Soms zijn die voor mensen die hun sporen in de wetenschap hebben verdiend, soms is het eredoctoraat voor iemand die maatschappelijk belangrijke dingen bewerkstelligt. 2/19
Het lustrumthema van de TU Delft (we worden komende week 180 jaar) is energietransitie. Binnen de EU is Frans Timmermans, met aan zijn rechterzijde TU Delft-alumnus en kernfysicus @diederiksamsom, hard bezig om de ingewikkelde verduurzaming van Europa een zet te geven. 3/19

It’s out - the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive recast. We’ve all been waiting with bated breath for the central measure - Minimum #EnergyPerformance Standards - to kick-start the ‘Renovation Wave’.

Can we expect a deluge or a dribble? THREAD 1/11
#EPBD Image
MEPS are essential to increase stubbornly low renovation rate AND one of few measures that can direct renovations to worst-performing buildings, alleviating #energypoverty

MEPS start with worst performing but should not stop there. They set a plan to fully decarbonise by 2050
The MEPS has 2 parts. 2nd is important but may get lost. Requires MSs to set timelines for MEPS for all bldgs to meet higher energy perf. class by 2040 & 2050

Potentially powerful plan for whole stock! Key to an effective framework, esp. given the weakness of 1st part… 3/11 Image

Profitant de passer sur une Radio 🇧🇪 ce matin à 7h10, le député EELV D. Cormand se lache sur la #PAC le #Bio et surtout l' #agribashing

Il pense que ses paroles n'arriveront jamais en 🇫🇷

Petit #thread de mémoire pour @Fragritwittos @emma_ducros le replay auvio pas dispo encore
D'abord à la présentation, il se déclare Paysan et non agriculteur voir pire exploitant agricole.
Question du journaliste :Pourquoi pas exploitant?

Réponse : un exploitant exploite la terre .... (sous entendu, c'est un esclavagiste)
Un paysan c'est le terroir... (pas les autres)
Donc, il explique que la #PAC ne va pas assez loin dans la sanction des "méchants agriculteurs" et pas assez loin dans le don d'argent public pour ces potes #Bio

Il parle beaucoup du concept : "de la ferme à la fourchette"

As part of the #GreenDeal, EU aims at a reduction in greenhouse gases of 55% by 2030 & full climate neutrality by 2050 🍃Will we have enough renewable electricity to meet the decarbonisation objectives? @RonnieBelmans @ReisPiero & @PieterVingerhoe answer📌
📑Studies show there is little room for supplying the additional #RenewableElectricity by 2030.
➡️This policy brief, part of the #EUI4CoFoE campaign, addresses potential priorities to cope with the remaining needs for energy towards carbon neutrality.
The authors suggest 5 policy actions by 2030 and 2050, addressing #cooperation with neighbouring countries, prioritising applications where electrification brings an enormous gain in efficiency such as passenger transport🚄🚃and hydrogen production and more.
