There’s a gaping (loop)hole in #climate reporting, calculations & countermeasures—#BlueCarbon!

Must finally put #Seabed #CarbonSink on agenda for #COP26...

Here too #China leads world in #carbon damage—by far.

Time for accountability on #RoadToGlasgow!

#Ocean covers 71% of world’s surface..<10% mapped w/ modern sonar.

Salt marshes, mangroves, seagrass beds & ultra-deep abyssal #seabed absorb large quantities of #CO2 from atmosphere & balancing critical #climate systems.

Disrupting risks grave & potentially irreversible harms
.@Nature: “#marine sediments are the largest pool of organic #carbon on the planet.”

Est. vol. ~7 trillion metric tons—>3X cumulative anthropogenic #CO2 emissions since 1750.

Bottom trawl #fishing & #seabed mining—both #PRC-led—risk damaging disruption.

There's a new #maritime incident off the #UAE coast. Appears to be related to the #GoldenBrilliant, a #Singapore-flagged chemical tanker signaling it's unable to maneuver due to exceptional circumstances.
A drone last week attacked a #Japan-owned, #Israel-managed tanker off the coast of #Oman, killing two crew members. #Iran is blamed for the attack.

#YEMEN U.S. Support of Saudi-led Aggression Aims at Gaining Control of #BabAl_Mandab Strait (#report).

The Turkish news channel, TRT World, presented a report by journalist and researcher specializing in Middle East crises, Jonathan Harvey, Wednesday, on #America's ambitions

to control #Babal_Mandeb in #Yemen.

The report said: Despite #US President Joe @POTUS 's firm promises to end the war in #Yemen, Washington's geopolitical concerns could negate its willingness to support these pledges.

The White House confirmed last week that

a "small number" of US forces remain in #Yemen claiming that their presence is to fight #AQAP and ISIS, as well as continuing to provide intelligence to the #Saudi-led coalition in Yemen, where 2,742 soldiers remain in ##Riyadh.

But don't take my word for it, read #ChinaDaily:
"As the People's Liberation Army upgrades its navy, commissioning dozens of new ships under a watchful global eye,a less noticed force,China's maritime militia, is also improving its operational capability."

TR and GR will have the 61th round of #exploratorytalks tomorrow. Let’s start by remembering some facts: Exploratory talks are not #negotiation. They aim to explore and understand the problems and prepare the ground for negotiations, and bring suggestions to decision makers
TR and GR had 60 rounds of talks between 2002 and 2016. During this period, differences between parties have only grown, with no real sign of reconciliation. So, talks did not really help until today. Tomorrow’s talks will be the first after a 5 year suspension of talks in 2016
Greece is insisting to talk only about #maritime #delimitation dispute, while Turkey would like meetings to be unconditional and include topics such as #sovereignty of certain islets and rocks, #minorityrights, #demilitarization of Greek Islands

Our #GlobalTrade Outlook Series webinar, a joint event between #MerseyMaritime @WUBusiness @MaritimeUK and @NBSOmanchester is underway. We are focusing on opportunities between the #UK and #Netherlands today. Follow this #thread for more information.
We are delighted to be joined by the Ambassador of the Kingdom of the #Netherlands to the #UnitedKingdom @KvanOosterom as our keynote speaker this morning. His Excellency will focus on #Brexit matters: the current state of play, the reality on the ground and future opportunities.
"The #Netherlands will continue to invest in our friendship with the UK, our family ties, our cultural links, our business connections, including in the #maritime industry and our strong naval co-operation." A positive message from @KvanOosterom to our #GlobalTrade webinar event.

TR and GR held 60 rounds of #exploratory talks over the course of 14 years. During this time, we have only seen a growing difference in parties’ claims, instead of a sign of reconciliation. Let’s hope, this new round of talks will be different and bring the peace the region needs
If TR gives up Libya deal, we might see a compromise. If not, no one should expect something useful from this new round of talks. Those who blindly support the #TR-Libya deal should understand how arbitrarily the Libya #map was evolved by only looking at the historic developments
With a Diplomatic Note on March 2, 2004, Turkey first time declared its continental shelf areas in the west of meridian 32°16’18”E. There was no hint on the Eastern and Western terminus of the boundary by then.

#Subex is setting the market abuzz with many brokers talking of relisting above 20 Rs - which is across a major 8 year breakout level of around 18.50

Libyan oil fields and terminals had been stopped since January 2020 as the fight for the control of the oil revenue prevented any agreement between rival factions. 2/5
On September 18, a member of the GNA and the son of warlord Khalifa Haftar announced that the exports would resume. This announcement was quickly rejected by other GNA members and state institutions, raising doubt as to the feasibility of the agreement. 3/5

"Today we are strengthening U.S. policy in a vital, contentious part of that region — the #SouthChinaSea. We are making clear: #Beijing’s claims to offshore resources across most of the South China Sea are completely unlawful, as is its campaign of bullying to control them."
"In the #SouthChinaSea, we seek to preserve peace and stability, uphold #freedom of the #seas in a manner consistent with international #law, maintain the unimpeded flow of #commerce, and oppose any attempt to use coercion or force to settle disputes."

So, @RWE is trying to gain public support for its #LNG terminals in Germany by leading us to believe there is a #hydrogen future. Let us unpack this a little (THREAD):

germanlng.com/wp-content/upl…

@peteraltmaier @SvenjaSchulze68 @GheorghiuAndy @ConstZerger
1/ The #LNG infrastructure planned is not ready for H2. @TUHamburg explains that you need a temperature of <-250C for liquified H2, vs <-100C for liquified gas, we are yet to see plans that show the design can cope. Well explained here in @TspBackgroundEK background.tagesspiegel.de/energie-klima/…
2/ Shipping H2 is something that people working in the #maritime industry are wary of. It is highly flammable and the safety risks associated would drive up insurance premia. Given low energy density, you'd need many more loads for same value --> expensive.

(2/9) Scenarios achieving 50-56% CO2 reduction by 2030 see total #coal use reduce by 70%, #oil by 25-50% and #naturalgas by up to 25%. The use of total #biomass ranges from limited growth to an increase of up to 60%. All compared to 2017.
(3/9) The growth of #wind power generation varies between a factor of 1.5 and 3.5 and the growth of #solar power between 1.5 and 4.5. Between 2017 and 2030.

#Solidarity with the 75 survivors on #Maridive601. After 3 days they are still not allowed to disembark. Although they were in distress in international waters, #Italian and #Maltese authorities ignored them. This is a violation of international law and #maritime conventions! Image
Tunisia is not a safe place for #refugees. Yet, ppl on board need medical attention, food, water and shelter. Due to #EU negligence we have no other option than to ask Tunisian authorities to let them disembark in Zarzis & to guarantee that they will not be deported to #Libya!
We also call on European authorities to respond to distress calls with adequate rescue instead of non-assistance and to re-settle these people to #Europe, where many cities have declared their #solidarity. Full statement here: alarmphone.org/en/2019/06/03/…

"The US navy has been conducting FONOPS..sends warships through disputed waters to prevent a claimant from denying others access in violation of int'l law. Analysts have long pushed for a more effective US response to counter China’s mix of mil, paramil & econ coercive measures."
