.@amitabhk87: The financial architecture wasn’t designed for #climatechange. There is a vast amount of capital available for climate change, but it will flow in when the risks are mitigated. For risks to be mitigated the financial architecture needs to be altered.

.@amitabhk87: If the developing world wishes to have #green, #resilient and #inclusive growth, it will only happen with concessional financing which would enable technology leapfrogging.

This was what I worried would happen with @Booker4KY. Not be on the offensive with @RandPaul, who's an abysmal, but only on the defensive when need to. Just like the @KyDems always do, which is a losing strategy. But Booker's running on policies that are materially popular!!!
Here's a fun fact about running in an election... If you run as an Aggressive & Offensive Candidate with Policies that help the People & their Material Well-being, then you win.
Here's how I know; In the 2015 Midterms, @AlanGrayson of the @FlaDems, he won with no problem. He was unapologetic when being a "#Progressive", stands up with his Principles & goes for the Jugular in Political Ads at his Opponents on how their Policies are Wrong, Evil & Bad &...

1. Suppose an alien spaceship will land on earth next week.

After many light-years of travel through space, some friendly little green creatures decide to get out and stretch their legs on our planet.

What would they report home?

2. I guess their first description would be ecstatic.

Hidden in the fast, cold, and dark universe, they discovered a blue planet that brims with an incredible diversity of life, aided by ideal living conditions.

3. But:

Since the dawn of civilization, humanity has lost 83% of all wild mammals and half of all plants.

Of all the mammals on earth, 96% are livestock and humans, while only 4% are wild mammals.

1. Yesterday, the UN Secretary-General warned: "We face the greatest cascade of crises in our lifetime."

World leaders gathered at the U.N. General Assembly, where the climate crisis and other 'Great Divides' are on the agenda.

2. Unlike just five or ten years ago, it's now only the odd one out who is not alarmed about the climate crisis.

Especially the younger generation doesn't need to be convinced of the seriousness of our global challenges.

#youth #schoolstrike…

3. Being alarmed doesn't always lead to concrete action.

Nobody can ignore the daily news about extreme weather disasters or the latest scientific report about the climate crisis.

But our leaders still don't treat the new reality as a crisis.

A thread on #ClimateCrisis:
Melting Boundaries
Nature Knows No Nation and No Nation Knows Nature
In the global fora, the issue of #climate change has been a game of ‘passing the parcel’ where the parcel is global in all proportions – global threat, global impact, global mitigation.
#Climate is the varying weather conditions experienced annually aggregated over a long period of time. Unfortunately, politically, climate change has had much less traction than the climate itself in the last 30 years. Efforts have been debated, litigated and even acted upon.

Ho ripreso la mia pic e scrivo un thread sulla #legalizzazione
1▶Proibizionismo e censura sul tema #cannabis, evidenziano che siamo un paese triste con uno stato CRIMINALE perché non c'è motivo evidente e sensato per non #legalizzare la #marijuana
2▶L'abuso di alcool è letale, ma sul vino il nostro paese ha creato una cultura identitaria dimenticando la sua pericolosità. Nessuno si preoccupa però che un consumatore di #cannabis che non ha MAI provocato morti, deve rivolgersi al mercato illegale gestito da organizzazioni
3▶ criminali che non rispettano né regole del mercato né regole sociali per avere un prodotto di cui non conosce la provenienza e di cui non c'è nessuna tracciabilità.

Even Achilles had his heel, so too #TRUDEAU like everyone has his weak spot.

What one can see here sustained during an interminable 5 seconds of silence (0:16 - 0:21) is the expression of dominance and bold defiance.

Sue Grafton, an American author, made this observation:
In the coming weeks, @JustinTrudeau @liberal_party will (desperately) attempt to 'flip the script' and lay the groundwork for a major reset. #TRUDEAU #LPC are gambling that CDNs «DON'T» and «WON'T» care about #Ethics #Corruption, and in particular, #WEscandal.

We'll see. Image
The "NEW and AMBITIOUS plan" | "BOLD NEW direction for Canada" must be so over-the top as to pull away any and all oxygen from the still smouldering embers of #WEscam.

non salverà il pianeta dall’inquinamento, ne cambierà solo le apparenze.
Nata a Davos vi torna per raccogliere il proprio trionfo.

3 la svolta green maschererà aiuti pubblici che finora erano incompatibili con le politiche UE.

#ILO100, "Il futuro del #lavoro", Roma, 31/5/2019. Importante intervento di @GuyRyder, DG @ILO. A seguire un estratto.
Temi toccati: il ruolo di #ILO, il ruolo dell'Italia nel dialogo e nell'azione internazionale sul #lavoro, il lavoro della commissione mondiale sul #FuturoDelLavoro, le sfide da affrontare.
I cambiamenti in corso inducono insicurezza e anche paura. In tutto il mondo le persone vogliono sapere se il loro #lavoro esisterà domani e se le loro #competenze saranno rilevanti.
