1/18.📜NEW BLOG: We have seen quite a few pledges that have been framed as “finance for #LossAndDamage”. But are they really? This blog provides an overview of all the pledges thus far at #COP27 in chronological order.

🔗Read it here: lossanddamagecollaboration.org/pages/festival… Image
2/18. On the 20th of September, #Denmark🇩🇰 pledged €13m for #LossAndDamage, a package which includes finance for the #GlobalShield Against Climate Risk, support for CSOs to do projects on the ground, and some other money that is yet to be allocated for a specific use.
3/18. Crucially, all of this money is new and on top of #Denmark’s 🇩🇰 0.7% commitment to ODA, therefore not a diversion of cash from other vital #ClimateFinance projects.

1/29. 📜NEW BRIEF: Today we launch “PASSED THE POINT OF NO RETURN: A Non-Economic #LossAndDamage (#NELD) Explainer” covering what #NELD is, why and how it happens, where it happens, who is most affected, and importantly, how we can respond.

🔗Get it here: lossanddamagecollaboration.org/publication/pa…
2/29. The brief begins with a foreword by @UNFCCC NELs Expert Group Member @IrfanUllahCDO, who highlights that Non-Economic #LossAndDamage has been largely overlooked in climate negotiations and that urgent action is needed to address #NELD happening now e.g. The #PakistanFloods.
3/29. Then @DLodry of @LossDamageYouth shares the powerful story of his lived experience of Non-Economic #LossAndDamage in #Cameroon called "The Tears Of A Village River And Its Population" which tells how climate-intensified #Drought can lead to a loss of #Culture and #Identity.

🚨Paper Alert🚨

Marine protected areas #MPAs are increasingly promoted as #ocean-based #solution to #ClimateChange, but their contribution to climate change #adaptation and #mitigation remains contentious. Our meta-analysis of 22,403 papers brings clarity. Link below.

🧵(1/17)
🙈Spoiler alert🙉

#FullyProtected #MPAs can can significantly enhance:

©️ carbon sequestration
🌊 coastal protection
🐟 biodiversity
🐡 reproductive capacity of marine organisms
🎣 fishers’ catch
💰 fishers’ income

🧵(2/17)
We identified the potential “climate pathways” through which #MPAs could contribute to #ClimateChange #mitigation and #adaptation. First along mitigation and adaptation dimensions, and then distinguishing among #ecological and #social dimensions of adaptation.

Dear @ClimateEnvoy @JohnKerry,

Here's my 10-point response to your intervention at the @nytimes Climate Forward conference at #UNGA

1. Thank you for acknowledging that #LossAndDamageFinance requires trillions of US$, as experts estimated.

THREAD - 1/6

2. You now agree "in all honesty" that the most important thing to do is to mitigate to prevent #LossAndDamage, and the next most important thing is to help people adapt.

3. But, the graph clearly shows that the US failed to reduce its CO2 emissions, since @UNFCCC in 1992.

2/6 Image
4. US gave 1 of US$3b of #ClimateFinance committed to @theGCF for #mitigation & #adaptation - nowhere close to its fair share.

5. Since 2013, I've seen the US blocking every single discussion on #LossAndDamageFinance, by arm-twisting and threatening developing nations.

#ClimateChange Heads of Delegation are in Cairo to discuss #LossAndDamage.

I made an intervention for @CANIntl in the opening plenary urging them to put L&D Finance on the #COP27 agenda to establish L&D Finance Facility and deliver #ClimateJustice.

Excerpt as a THREAD – 1/11
#We are already in the era of #LossAndDamage!

In the last few months, we have seen unfathomable levels of suffering because of #climate impacts

We've seen #heatwaves #droughts #wildfire and #floodings sweep through the world and the horrific devastation by #PakistanFloods

2/11
Science tells us how much worse this situation is and why that is.

Because #polluters keep polluting and those who are most responsible refuse to do their fair share.

🚨 New paper 🚨

Green #hydrogen and derived #efuels are critical for #climate #mitigation, but when will they be available at scale?

In a new Nature Energy study, we look at a key bottleneck: the market ramp-up of #electrolysis capacity.

Summary 🧵⬇️

nature.com/articles/s4156…
2/ #GreenHydrogen, produced from renewable electricity via electrolysis, is vital for the #EnergyTransition. In the #EnergyCrisis hydrogen is also considered an option to limit Europe's fossil fuel imports.

However, scaling up supply is a huge challenge!
3/ There's a lot of momentum in electrolysis project announcements. This is also much needed because global capacity needs to grow a staggering 6,000-8,000-fold from 2021-2050 to meet #NetZero scenarios. Yet, most projects still lack an FID, making them uncertain. Image

It's 44°C in Delhi today 🥵

Yesterday, bad planning + phone blooper meant I was out in the scorching heat from 12-3pm. Tried taking a bus. The only AC one that came was full to the brim (COVID super spreader anyone?). The non AC bus was emptier but so hot. I took it. (1)
No one seems to realise that in extreme heat, COVID protocols take a backseat. This is what compounding risk looks like. At 43-44°C the heat outdoors is suffocating and a mask is the last thing you want to wear. (2)
Across the subcontinent, we have a history of living with heat. There is an almost perverse romanticism around the Indian summer. We keep water cool in earthen pots, water is kept for anyone to drink from in public spaces, vendors splash water on pavements to sit on. (3)

These are our 5 takeaways from the #IPCC report on #mitigation, looking at what it means for the #waste sector. Spoiler: we need to cut emissions as fast and furious as we can, and reducing #waste, #plastic and being more materials efficient can help lots
no-burn.org/ipcc-takeaways…
As the report points out, the #waste sector remains the largest contributor to urban emissions after the energy sector, even in low-carbon #cities. Urban areas themselves represent the lion’s share of global emissions, and it's increasing: from 60% in 2000 to 67% in 2015.
So, the @IPCC_CH #ClimateReport recognises that cities can significantly reduce emissions, but this requires systemic transformation: #circulareconomy, #inclusion, #equity, innovative technologies can make a huge contribution towards low carbon urban devel'mnt

- #Dengue risk will increase with longer seasons and a wider geographic distribution in #Asia, #Europe, Central and South America and sub-Saharan #Africa, potentially putting additional billions of people at risk by the end of the century
- A billion people projected to be at risk from coastal-specific climate hazards in the mid-term under all scenarios, including in Small Islands. #ClimateCrisis #ClimateEmergency

Really, don't blink with this damn variant.

A few striking things I noticed, including a comparison of the #delta & #omicron surges in #Florida.

Nearly 47,000 cases reported today, 7-day avg just under 30,000.

Blows our delta peak out of the water by almost 8000/day.

🧵

1/13
We continue to lead the country in the % increase in average daily cases compared to two weeks prior.

#Florida has had a 991% increase

But the absolute increase is astonishing - we are now averaging nearly 27,000 more cases EACH DAY compared to 2 weeks ago.

2/13
Whereas only a few weeks ago, we had the LOWEST 7-day cases per capita in the country (largely due to the catastrophe that was the #delta surge)...

We're now 4th highest in the country over the last 7 days, behind only NYC, DC, and NJ.

FYI: even with mild #covid people still have to stay home from work/school! This is why schools are closing & businesses scaling back- WE DONT HAVE ENOUGH PEOPLE RESOURCES! Even with #mitigation/#vaccination mass infection isn’t the answer- we want lower RATES of infection
The calls for uncoupling infections & hospitalizations are necessary as we will be living with #COVID19 forever- BUT RIGHT NOW THERE IS A LOT OF CIRCULATING #VIRUS! To address THIS issue we need everyone to use all mitigation measures: #masking, #testing, #stayhome if sick.
Reading piece after piece about why we can’t close schools & how we want no #masks are premature! No one wants to shut it down. But we need tools AT SCALE. That means counties & states need massive influx of #masks & #tests& people to administer tests, #contacttracers too
