A new thread as #COP25 begins.
I am totally fed up with the messages about 1.5C or 2 C warming
And fed up with the "Lalaland" way of thinking that "we are about to cut emissions"
So i decided to sum up the data i have..to call this BULLSHIT
It's time for all to WAKE UP

On Thursday, the @EIB board (Member States, @EU_Commission) decides whether funding #gas infrastructure is still in the public interest.

I shuffled through the extraordinary amount of voices saying "no, we've got better things to fund" and put them in this THREAD.

Economist Prof. @CKemfert clearly tells us that we're setting us up for another badly managed transition with #strandedassets if we use public funding for #fossilfuels as renewables and efficiency will undercut the market for gas. euractiv.de/section/energi… @OlafScholz

Court win blocking #Colorado #coal mine expansion a victory for #climate, #publiclands. @WildEarthGuard's @JeremyJNichols1:

"it’s a resounding rebuke of the Trump administration’s attempts to sidestep our environmental laws to appease the coal industry,"

wildearthguardians.org/press-releases…
It comes on heels of longstanding efforts to defend #NationalForest lands, #climate from Arch Coal's attempts to expand West Elk mine.

Not only does mine's #coal fuel #climatecrisis, mine vents massive amounts of #methane, as we explain in this video.

Read on for full saga!
We first filed suit in 2008 challenging #methane venting at West Elk mine. We were represented by @TedZukoski, a long-time defender of #publiclands and #climate.

Mine is largest single industrial source of methane emissions in #Colorado,

For weeks and months, i have been tracking the arctic temperatures and the decline of the icecap.
Wondering why it was so warm , and for so long.
What is happening there? Icecap is down over 50%.
Albedo effect will be massively impacted by this.

We learned a few days ago, that scientific expedition in the east siberian arctic just found methane fountains bubbling on the sea surface , in the middle of the east siberian sea.
Some of the implications :

#ClimateCrisis #climatestrike #ClimateAction

telegraph.co.uk/news/2019/10/0…
Here is the theory:
1/ Increasing periods of open water implies an increasing number of storm events.. Such events have the potential to rapidly ventilate bubble-transported and dissolved CH4 from the water column, producing high emission rates to the atmosphere

"WE ABSOLUTELY DO NOT LIKE WHAT WE SEE THERE"

Natalia Shakhova doesn't agree with the #ipcc, which doesn't take the ESAS risk into account for calculating the various #RCP ..or any feedback loops including #CH4

Agricultural methane and its role as a greenhouse gas - new Building Block by John Lynch of @oxfutureoffood explains how #methane and carbon dioxide affect the #climate differently and addresses some common areas of confusion. foodsource.org.uk/building-block…
Here are some key points from our new #methane explainer. Methane is a stronger greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide, molecule for molecule. Methane is an important greenhouse gas, second only to carbon dioxide in terms of its overall contribution to human-driven climate change.
44% of methane emissions from human activity are from agriculture. Of that 44%, roughly one third comes from enteric fermentation, i.e. the digestive processes of ruminant livestock.

Today we'd like to share some fun facts about #Mars and our discoveries so far with #ESA Mars Express & @ESA_TGO. But first let's take a look at the @esa @NASA @isro @roscosmos spacecraft currently investigating the Red Planet:
📷Hi-res: esa.int/spaceinimages/… #ExploreFarther
@ESA_TGO @esa @NASA @isro @roscosmos Did you know there is a telecommunications network at #Mars? Orbiters relay commands and send #science data from landers & rovers back to #Earth. Our #ExoMars @ESA_TGO is a key provider of data relay services!🔴〰️🛰〰️🌍 #ExploreFarther

We weren't allowed to tweet from the #BPAGM so I've summarised my highlights below 👇
The AGM started off with protesters disrupting the meeting by calling BP a climate criminal & gluing themselves to the board - full video here 👇in response, BP CEO said everybody likes a good Shakespeare
The Q&A of the #BPAGM kicked off w @MsJoAlexander making a pledge to BP to make opportunities for its employees to work on low-carbon solutions & make their jobs more meaningful. #JustTransition The response from the chair was vague & disappointing.

#oilandgas flimflam men are lying! Journalists should not repeat the lies!

They want the public to believe that natural gas is a solution for #climatechange.

IT IS THE PROBLEM.

U.S. GHG emissions are rising not decreasing as flimflammers claim. 1/4

cicero.oslo.no/en/posts/clima…
Natural gas is #methane or CH4 and it's a super pollutant that is over 86 X more potent at warming the planet than CO2. But, it doesn't stay in the atmosphere for very long and that's where the HOPE for STOPPING #climatechange is. 2/4
Because #methane is short-lived, if we STOP #fracking and #KeepItInTheGround our planet will have an immediate response and the rapid warming will slow giving us time to solve CO2 which stays in the atmosphere for a very long time. 3/4

Leticia: @airallianceHOU has their own purple air monitors for #ITCDisaster. @HarvardU also has monitors. #ITCfire is why we cannot afford rollbacks. Study by @EnvironmentTex show companies like ITC don't incur problems from air quality violations. EPA & TCEQ not protecting us
.@HighTechAztec @SierraClub: Experiencing symptoms of exposure and high levels of distress.

I care because I live here, too. My mom lives in Deer Park. Friends who are pregnant & vulnerable. Concerned about cumulative impact. Scares me

In April, Alberta, Canada, will elect a new provincial government. Many may be unaware that the current @rachelnotley govt has adopted a globally significant #climate plan. Here is what's in it, what it has done, and what is at stake next month. A THREAD #abvote 1/24
First, where did Alberta’s Climate Leadership Plan plan come from? (George Soros, perhaps? Foreign-funded radicals?) No. It came from Albertans. A volunteer panel led by @andrew_leach spoke w 1K residents in-person and heard from 25K+ online. 2/24
The panel also engaged with 350+ stakeholders and met w Aboriginal Peoples in three cities, and received hundreds of detailed submissions from NGOs, industry groups and others. 3/24

My town #Coonabarabran #Coona sits in NW of #NSW . Just North is the #Pilliga forest, to south & west #WarrumbungleNatPark & #SidingSpringObservatory. Rich farmlands surround it. But it is under threat from #climatebreakdown #schoolstrike4climate
#Coona district is in severe #drought & #waterstress our council Dam is so low that new bores had to be sunk for town’s supply. Farming families are worn down with feeding stock & stress. Paddocks are baked dry #climatebreakdown is reality #SchoolStrike4Climate
In our gardens, forests and farms trees are dying as we face our second #autumn in drought. We are reliant on bore water from the #GreatArtesianBasin to survive #climatebreakdown is a daily reality. #SchoolStrike4climate

1) Today's #DSMedia narrative is #TheNewGreenDeal, a spin off from a 2012 #UK attempt at pushing #ClimateChange.
Long awaited? The only ones that await this drivel, even if it's not in the bill, is those that would benefit from the #CCX.
To end #GreenHouseGas emitters, one must
2) understand that living things emit CO2 which is among the list of #GHGs created for this narrative hoax. All the while conveniently overlooking #Methane which has been responsible for several global mass extinctions & again is completely natural. One can hope, that after this
3) fail, the faux creator of this #Bill will scurry under a rock. However, we all know that #AllOutCrazy never goes away!
To actually deal with #WeatherManagement, the #FutureWeapons R&D agenda would have to be examined. #GeoEngineering, #NEXRAD, #IonosphericHeaters, & more

RT this [THREAD] of articles if you'd like to ask Twitter's most popular UK political commentators - the vast majority of whom seldom or never mention the Ecological Emergency - for analysis of the politics of catastrophic #ClimateBreakdown, #MassExtinction & #EcologicalCollapse.
Dear @jonsnowC4 @peston @bbclaurak @bbcnickrobinson @afneil

'we could be looking at an epic extinction event, caused by ourselves, which could include exterminating our own species, or at least what we call “civilization,” in as little as nine years.'

Hi @OwenJones84 & @paulmasonnews

'We are already facing mass extinction. There is no removing the heat we have introduced into the oceans, nor the 40bn tons of CO2 we pump into the atmosphere every single year. There may be no changing what is happening'

To kick off #Sustainuary then, let's talk about #dairy alternatives like nut juice, oat juice and various other #plantbased drinks. We've never had more choice, but what are the actual #sustainability credentials of these products vs animal milk? #Veganuary
#Dairy production has received widespread criticism for its #carbonfootprint .
The average UK dairy system produces around 1.2Kg Co2eq. per Kg milk . However this varies hugely, mainly depending on the cows' diets and how much fertiliser is used on the pasture. #sustainuary
The most #sustainable #dairy farms in the UK can have carbon footprints as low as 0.5 KgCO2 eq. per Kg milk produced, which are comparable to many dairy alternatives. #Sustainuary #Veganuary

I think the time has come to attempt a thread to explain our GWP* paper. I sense it's going to be long, as the topic is more suited to a 45-min seminar (30 at a push)... If you are keen on #methane and what the Paris Agreement means, this is for you. Otherwise, scroll on! 0/n
#Thread on our new paper about how you can think about tradeoffs between #methane (or other greenhouse gases) and CO2 for the Paris Agreement. The paper is here (free): go.nature.com/2xJFY7d 1/n
CO2 accumulates in the atmosphere, so that is the most important gas to stop emitting to limit warming. We have to take it out of the air if we want to reduce the amount in the atmosphere without waiting 1000s of years. 2/n
