I love Rowan Atkinson the comedian and I believe he learned electrical engineering once, but I feel this erroneous article on EVs dupes the readers of the @guardian and that's starting to become a pattern.

Electric vehicles really emit 3x less CO2.
I didn't do something similar in school once. I actually study this specific topic at the @TUeindhoven. So I do actually dive into the facts.

And debunking nonsense like this from people like Atkinson who think or pretend to know better sometimes feels like a full time job.
Please do look up all my studies and debunks in my pinned thread if you would like more in depth info but in essence it's simple:

EVs use around 4x less energy and that energy can come from electricity that is becoming increasingly low carbon.

1. In the face of a fierce backlash, The Guardian has apologised and removed Martin Rowson's drawing posted on its website as it "did not meet our editorial standards".…
2. This was due to its blatant antisemitism. However it is normal for the white elite left-wing Guardian to attackgroups like Jews and Hindus. After all it has never apologised for using Hinduphobia against @pritipatel knowing cattle are venerated…

1. The election of Narendra Modi as the choice for millions in the world’s largest democracy is a bit galling to those whose concept of ‘democratic’ resembles Lenin’s armed force against the elected government of Alexander Kerensky in revolutionary Russia.
2. Yet even before Modi’s election in what proved to be a pivotal moment in Indian democracy the anti-Hindu blood hounds were out in force. Of these Priyamvada Gopal is one the most prominent.
3. Gopal teaches English literature at the University of Cambridge but her true passion is formulating hate speech against Hindu sentiments from the pages of the notorious British anti-Hindu rag, the Guardian on 14 May 2014.

Those of you still laboring under the illusion that Western democracies and their media are "free" need to wake up. Western states decide what can and cannot be talked about - not through forced censorship, but through ownership. (1/n) #ohiotrainderailment #OhioChernobyl A 🧵
The way it works is that politicians are elected via expensive election campaigns requiring huge corporate sponsorship. So they are beholden to big corporates for their survival. The same big corporates own the press. (2/n)
So the big corporates tell politicians (whom they own) what to do and they then tell the press (which they own) to run stories that support the things that the politicians do at their bidding. The system works smoothly and nobody is the wiser. (3/n)

3. il periodo in cui il nostro paese ha vissuto una fase di raro progresso civile è stato quello in cui sono emersi giornali che mettevano in dubbio le "verità ufficiali" delle istituzioni,degli eserciti,dei servizi segreti

This screenshot of today's #Guardian shows headlines & pictures using 6 frames about the environment which suppress radical action. Can you spot them?
@rustyrockets @ClareTotty @peterreason @jongosling @jasonhickel @frucool…
Framing 1: that the environmental crisis is about our children's future. Yes, it is. But the implicit message of focusing on that is that the environmental crisis is not about people's damaged and disrupted present.
Framing 2: that there is time to fix the environment rather than us already being in a situation of disaster management, where there is a lot to do urgently, but which won't fix the situation - just give us more of a chance to be reducing potential impacts.

⚠️#Uncontacted tribe in danger ⚠️

On the Brazil-Peru border, a group of indig ppl have approached a Manchineri village, in the Mamoadate Indig Territory in BR. The Manchineri say the group are members of the uncontacted Mashco Piro tribe.

🏹 Take action:…
As in many such cases, it could be that the #uncontacted Indians are fleeing the pressure of invaders on their land.

"Something must be happening for them to get so close to the 🇧🇷Brazilian side, because in Peru, when [invaders] come across uncontacted Indians, they shoot"

☝️ José Carlos Meirelles, a government agent who specializes in protecting the lands of #UncontactedTribes.

Nasdaq spreading conspiracy theories.


Nasdaq: #2 on list of stock exchanges behind NYSE.

#GreatReset: not a figment of our imagination. Rather, it's the 21st cent. imperative of billionaires to save capitalism.

#Imperative21: 72,000 corporations across 80 countries. 150 different industries.

"An unprecedented coalition of business networks that have come together to raise our ambition. Not just to help our individual CEOs succeed... we'll do that for sure..."

"So that the push-back on the BRT [Business Roundtable] from differ. business publications or other people within the [] community lessens. So there's less of a headwind culturally for this type of leadership"

1. to those objecting that #CambridgeAnalytica scandal revealed by @carolecadwalla is real: I do NOT claim to know the truth about it. As a journalist, I just stick to the facts emerged so far. Let me clarify those facts:
2. while #Cadwalladr-
#Guardian depicted #Assange involved in the #CambridgeAnalytica (CA) scandal,#WashPost revealed #WikiLeaks met CA's #BrittanyKaiser to tell her: leak us all your docs and #WikiLeaks will publish everything[ARCHIVE]:…
3. now, if #CambridgeAnalytica's #BrittanyKaiser and Julian #Assange were actually involved in a conspiracy, as #Cadwalladr-#Guardian claimed, do you think #WikiLeaks would have asked her for all her documents and publish all of them? Absurd

le autorità inglesi stanno cercando di impedirmi di appellare decisione #FOIA dopo che miei avvocati @estelledehon e @suigenerisjen e io abbiamo vinto in Tribunale contro #ScotlandYard. E' un tentativo senza precedenti
in pratica #ScotlandYard ha perso la causa in #Tribunale,prima ha invocato #sicurezzaNazionale contro mio #FOIA,poi visto che avevo soldi per combatterli in Tribunale,invocano il fatto che da italiana non ho diritto di appellare,sebbene abbia fatto già 3 appelli in UK

1. I just finished reading the chapter on #WikiLeaks (59 pages) contained in the #SenateIntelligenceCommittee's Report on "Russian Active Measures Campaigns and Interference in the 2016 US Election"…
2. the description of #WikiLeaks' publishing activities by this #SenateIntelligenceCommittee's Report appears a true #EdgarHoover's disinformation campaign to make a legitimate media org completely radioactive
3. Clearly, to describe #WikiLeaks and its publishing activities the #SenateIntelligenceCommittee's Report completely rely on #US intelligence community+ #MikePompeo's characterisation of #WikiLeaks. There is not even any pretense of an independent approach

This vile post was made by @MonaChalabi - who actually works for the #Guardian. She posted it on both #Twitter and #Instagram. A more abusive post you will rarely see. I want you to look closely at the first two maps.... 1/5
The first map points out where Jews live. Only Jews. It doesn't worry about whether they are immigrants it not. Nor does it point out non-Jewish immigrants or other non Arab populations. To be marked on this map you must be Jewish. Unmarked areas are 'Judenrein'. 2/5
The map also suggests that where Jews don't live is 'Palestinian land' even though most was unpopulated. Can you imagine a map of the UK marked only with towns that have large black communities - with the rest of the UK called 'British land' - it really is Nazi stuff. 3/5
