Con la legge sulla protezione del #clima accettata ieri con una netta maggioranza dalla popolazione, la🇨🇭darà il suo contributo agli sforzi globali necessari e urgenti per stabilizzare il clima. Un impegno chiaro, ora va attuato in fretta. In che modo? Breve 🧵 (1/n)
In primis: aumentando la produzione elettrica indigena, sebbene la🇨🇭non potrà mai essere autosufficiente in tal senso ma neppure lo era negli obiettivi della legge. Ecco qui sotto gli obiettivi della legge ↙️ e i valori indicativi per settore per raggiungerli ↘️ (2/n) ImageImage
Chiaro: occorrerà aumentare in modo consistente, sebbene graduale e cumulato, il ricorso all'elettricità e perciò, al di là degli scambi transnazionali — siamo pur sempre una batteria, con continui scambi di elettricità attraverso l’Europa —, la sua produzione indigena. (3/n)

In a world of planetary boundaries & substantial inequalities, between & within countries, it will not be possible to meet basic needs of all people without imposing limits on forms of excess. The climate crisis is, first & foremost, a distributional crisis. @Earth4All_ 2/18

🌍🚱Cada vez somos más pero tenemos menos agua.

Un estudio de los últimos 30 años encuentra una disminución significativa del almacenamiento de agua en el 53% de los casi 2,000 mayores cuerpos de agua (lagos artificiales y naturales) estudiados 🧵… Image
Y principalmente NO por el consumo humano.
En los lagos naturales, las pérdidas tienen como causa:
44.4% Menor precipitación y escorrentía.
31.4% Mayores temperaturas (y consecuente mayores necesidades de las plantas).
14.4% Actividades humanas. Image
Aunque también hay lagos naturales que ganan reservas, de nuevo gracias a cambios en el clima: precipitación y temperatura. Image

The ambition from @GovWesMoore: We want Maryland to be the offshore wind capital of the world. In partnership with other sectors, we have a chance to advance climate solutions in a meaningful and sustainable way. Incentivize capital and incentivize movement. Image
"The private sector has led on the study of climate risk impacts. Politics cannot get in the way of this - we can’t interfere with progress on climate action." - @GovWesMoore Image

.@TIME has just named @petrogustavo one of 100 Most Influential People of 2023🇨🇴👏🏽

One of the reasons: the Colombian President's forward-thinking climate policy, which paves the way for building fossil fuel free future 🧵⬇️…
@GabrielBoric 🇨🇱says of his Colombian counterpart:

“Gustavo dares to speak about complex issues [....] and the imperative to care for the environment in the context of a global climate crisis. He’s a leader who makes difficult decisions and learns fast.”…
In Latin American, where the extractivist economy is the rule, @petrogustavo’s proposal to phase-out #FossilFuels is indeed against the tide.

Hey! You forgot about the #IPCC report!

Don't worry - I'm going to do another thread here, this time with highlights from the 'longer report', which is longer than the summary of the synthesis, but shorter than the as-yet unreleased full synthesis (which are all summaries)

The past is here, it's just not evenly (temporally and spatially)

Hello to North America and Europe, responsible for 39% of historical CO2 emissions

(some weird country groupings here....but that's because countries are weird concepts)
The most vulnerable countries also tend to have the lowest emissions per person

It feels old hat now but it's still an important point.

As promised, now more on the topics I was deeply involved in as #IPCC #AR6 Synthesis Report author, both in the Summary for Policymakers & the so-called 'Longer Report':
overhoot, net zero, mitigation pathways (incl. CDR)

Let's start with "Overshoot" (B.7), where I was responsible for drafting and 'negotiating' in plenary, but of course not alone (mainly together with @chrisd_jones, with whom I worked on corresponding section 3.3.4 in underlying report)
To understand the Overshoot SPM section B.7, we need to start with B.1 on "Future Climate Change", led by @JuneYiLee1 & @sorensson_anna

‼️ La noticia climática de este mes es la publicación del sexto informe de revisión de la situación climática del #IPCC, el panel intergubernamental de científicos que estudian la crisis climática.

¡Oh, sorpresa!, las cosas no pintan nada bien:…

El informe certifica que nuestro mundo ya está experimentando efectos catastróficos del cambio climático, como sequías prolongadas, lluvias torrenciales y otros fenómenos extremos. #CambioClimatico
Efectos con importantes consecuencias sociales: el informe reconoce que este calentamiento global ha provocado ya muertes, desplazamientos, y la pérdida de cosechas y de pesquerías y, con ello, ha agravado la hambruna en regiones como el cuerno de África.…

Berlin konnte sich nicht zu ambitionierten Klimazielen durchringen. Das ist frustrierend und ein Verlust für alle, die einen intakten Planeten zum Leben brauchen – auch für die, die beim #Klimavolksentscheid mit Nein stimmten. Dass das so viele waren, ist erschreckend. ⬇️
Wie sehr die Regierungen weltweit beim Klimaschutz versagen, und wie unzureichend aktuelle Ziele sind, hat kürzlich erst wieder der #IPCC bestätigt. Momentan steuern wir auf 3,2 Grad Erhitzung zu. @klimaneustart
Dass diese Tatsache zwei Drittel der Wähler*innen nicht zur Wahlurne treibt, ist schon bemerkenswert. Dass 423.418 Berliner*innen sich aber die Mühe machten, wählen zu gehen und mit Nein zu stimmen, zeigt, wie riesig der Gegenwind für ambitionierten Klimaschutz war und ist.

Hace tiempo que quiero hace un hilo sobre el #decrecimiento, el cual vengo estudiando y escribiendo al respecto desde hace 1 década. A luz del último #reporte del #IPCC, se hace más que necesario. 🧵 Image
El decrecimiento tiene sus raíces en diversas corrientes de pensamiento, como la economía ecológica, la crítica al desarrollo y la filosofía de la simplicidad voluntaria🧵 Image
Aunque algunas de sus ideas pueden rastrearse hasta el siglo XVIII, fue en la década de 1960 y 1970 cuando cobró fuerza, gracias a eventos como la publicación del informe "Los límites del crecimiento" por el Club de Roma en 1972 y la crisis del petróleo de 1973.🧵 Image

Our new @NatureClimate paper just out! State-of-the-art estimates of economic impacts of climate change show that benefits of #ClimateAction outweigh the mitigation costs by a factor of 1.5 to 3.9 ➡️strong economic validation of #ParisAgreement 🔗 1/7
We combined climate impacts of
🟠sea-level rise,
🟡river floods,
🟢labour productivity,
🔵energy supply/demand,
🟤forestry and
⚫️road transportation
and transform this in financial costs. But not: ❌biodiversity loss❌health❌tipping points 2/7
For a 3°C scenario (RCP6.0, roughly current trend/baseline), economic impacts are 10-12% of GDP, with high regional differences. Even higher if sea-level rise adaptation is not optimal. 3/7

In recent #IPCC report, developing countries insisted a disclaimer be highlighted in a separate box. That models "do not make explicit assumptions about global equity, environmental justice or intra-regional income distribution." 🧵

For @carboncopyinfo…
So what does this disclaimer mean? What are the assumptions underlying modelled emission reduction pathways & why are they not driven by equity-based considerations like burden of energy transition on poorer countries?
Let's start with how models call for a rapid & drastic decline in only one fossil fuel which is primarily used in the developing world i.e. coal. A recent study by @FuelOnTheFire questioned the socio-political feasibility of such pathways & the leeway they provide for oil & gas

We often talk in terms of future projections, but here's the thing: climate change is already driving major increases in food insecurity and malnutrition. A short #IPCC report🧵
"Increasing weather and climate extreme events have exposed millions of people to acute food insecurity (food insecurity with a severity that threatens lives, livelihoods or both)."
Food production is already constrained by changing weather conditions.

It's fossil profits or life.

Achieving a full phase out of fossil fuels as demanded by the #IPCC means an end to fossil profits.

Yet they are still on the rise. The oil and gas industry has delivered $2.8bn a day in unearned profit for the last 50 years. A total of $52tn.
