President @JoeBiden is visiting NY and NJ today to talk about #infrastructure in the wake of flooding. Talk that includes more $ for sea walls, levees, stormwater drains. But to solve flooding, we have to consider how #water behaves.
It can come from the sky, from the sea, and even from up from underground due to hydrological pressure. #ClimateCrisis is showing us a quantity of water our #infrastructure is not built to handle. B/c our concrete water infrastructure is inflexible.
Will @JoeBiden talk about natural #infrastructure? #wetlands, floodplains, and marshes are absorbent and flexible -- and also STORE CARBON to reduce climate change. Yet cities including NYC are building new development on filled-in wetlands.

Our #infrastructure bill will bring the funds necessary to build a completely new @CBP port at the Highgate Springs Land Port of Entry on Interstate 89. Vermonters have been asking for improvements to this crossing for years. Image
@USGSA Administrator Carnahan knows, as Vermonters do, that Highgate currently experiences long delays at peak travel times, and the completion of the A35 highway in Canada will only increase traffic in the coming years. Image
Our #infrastructure bill will also make major upgrades to crossings at Alburg Springs, Richford, Norton & Beebe Plain, all ports that have seen little investment since they were constructed in the 1930s. Glad to visit our border today with @USGSA Administrator Carnahan.

#NMP #Financing #infrastructure
In current situation, we run the 'risk of mispricing risk, even for de-risked assets'.
Why: It is not easy to estimate cash flows from infrastructure assets in an uncertain environment with limited clarity about eco policy and potential growth?
I would host these assets in NIIF & do a Public issue for raising finance, so that the Indian public shares the upside, as they are ones who have been bearing the risk all these years. We need Indian HHs to start providing risk cap, if India has to grow.
We can use banking system or the shadow banking systems where we have debt bearing the cost of risk and uncertainty, arising our poor policy choices and business decision.

Tim Driscoll: Rich Trumka's legacy is long & deep; the best way we can pay tribute to that is by moving forward on the PRO Act & the infrastructure bills.
@Tdriscollbac @IUBAC #infrastructure
Tim Driscoll: The $1.2 infrastructure bill was a great down payment. Roads, bridges, water, broadband, ports. These roads are to get us somewhere, like work, school, etc., so we need a lot of broad investment.
@Tdriscollbac @IUBAC #infrastructure
Tim Driscoll: When we put people to work, they put that money right back in the economy by spending it.

Officially, the German federal government wants to save nothing less than the world #climate. In order to achieve this megalomaniac goal, it does not shy away from any expenditure that costs our economy around 50 billion euros annually in the form of high taxes and subsidies. /1
This moralizing #climate activism makes every German citizen poorer by at least 600 euros per year. /2
But among the heads and chief ideologues of large lobby organizations, there is the naive hope that this massive transformation will finally make #Germany the world champion exporter again - through the export of #climate technology. /3

#OffTheBlocks, Vol 129 | Some thoughts on NFTs and the sports and entertainment markets in today's newsletter.…
The #NFTization of the world of sports and entertainment is a major shift away from the fan experiences that we were all accustomed to pre-Covid seem like an ancient world now.
As a #fan there was not much to choose from previously - they went to the game/event, made a beeline through security, showed their tickets, and went in and savored overpriced beverages and hot dogs.

The bipartisan #infrastructure bill (#BIB) just passed the Senate. It would create jobs & take significant, but inadequate, #climateaction. Here are a few major investments–and what must be added in budget reconciliation to meet the scale of the #climatecrisis. [Thread]
Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure: at least $5 billion to create the first-ever national investment in EV charging infrastructure to create thousands of jobs and accelerate the transition to EVs.
Electric School Buses: $2.5 billion to replace diesel-powered school buses w/ electric pollution-free buses
*Another $2.5 billion for “clean” buses, which could be used for polluting “alternative fuel” buses (CNG, propane)(needs fix before final passage)…

THREAD: The Biden admin has been talking a big game about being "tough on Big Tech" and Silicon Valley monopolies. But right now they're quietly defending a provision in the #InfrastructureBill that targets software developers who are trying to build alternatives to Big Tech
Here's what's going on: the administration has been pushing a "pay-for" measure in the bipartisan infrastructure package that would expand US government surveillance of #cryptocurrency projects. @EFF has a good summary of concerns with the provision here:…
The provision has been sold as being about taxes. But it's so poorly written that it would create reporting requirements that would demand people like software developers and even volunteers within decentralized tech projects hand over data or conduct surveillance of their users.

China unveils 600 kph/370 mph High Speed Superfast #maglevtrain prototype makes public #debut, "Fastest Ground #Vehicle Globally": Report
Using electro-magnetic force, #maglev #TRAIN "levitates" above track & no contact between body and rail.
#Thread #tech #technology #Transport
China has been using maglev technology for almost 2 decades on very limited scale. Maglev train could go from Shanghai to #Beijing in 2.5 hours, versus 5.5 hours by high-speed rail. Self-developed by China and manufactured in coastal city of #Qingdao. @CRRC_global new model.
Cutting-edge #scientific and technological achievement in field of #railway transit in world. Train uses electromagnets to suspend itself above rails, and because there's no friction from contact with rail lines, train can run quietly and smoothly. Unveiled in glittery ceremony.

🧵AMA to #Congress:

•Do not extend 2% #Medicare sequester as a spending offset in soon-to-be considered #infrastructure package.

•Do not divert scarce health-related offsets to meet objectives unrelated to healthcare.

Physicians already face steep Medicare fiscal challenges.
2/ AMA expresses “deepening alarm concerning the growing financial instability of the Medicare physician payment system.”

“Not only does Congress seem indifferent to the confluence of fiscal uncertainties confronting physician practices at the end of this year, but…”
3/ “…lawmakers’ pursuit of policies to extend the current Medicare sequester that, in effect, will require physicians and health systems to pay for
hard infrastructure amplifies our ongoing concerns.”
