We need to talk about nature… 🌿

Please, please don’t be one of those people who watch a show like Wild Isles, think how beautiful nature is and how sad it is that we’re losing it at an alarming rate, but then not do anything about it!


Here’s how... 🧵
There are dozens of things individuals and businesses can do to support nature’s recovery and help tackle ecological collapse and biodiversity loss.

And some of those things are really quick and easy to do.

Here are just a few of them…

A plan created for the people, by the people of the UK – a vision for the future of nature, and the actions we must all take to protect and renew it. Add your voice here, takes 10s:

"That the #Anthropocene, at its core, is a fundamentally bourgeois concept should surprise no one. After all, it tells us that behind the current, disastrous state of world affairs is the #Anthropos. It’sa trick ...… #history #capitalism #ideology
... as old as #modernity – the rich and powerful create #problems for all of us, then tell us we’re all to blame. But are we? And just who, in any case, is ‘#we’?"
"The #Anthropocene concept has graced the cover of The Economist magazine and received the blessing of The New York Times’ editorial board – for the very sound reason that anthropogenic arguments obscure capitalogenic realities." #Science/#Society

Flaco, the escaped Eurasian eagle-owl, perched on the Naumburg Bandshell last Friday night. Extreme opinions have been expressed about him. On this subject and others, perhaps we should behave more like owls: patiently watch and wait. (1/15)

#birds #birdwatching #nature #birdcpp
The question of Flaco’s continuing freedom is moot with the zoo suspending its efforts to capture him again. I was able to observe their efforts to attract him with playback last Thursday night. He was responsive vocally but seemed to fly away from it more than towards it. (2/15)
They tried and it didn’t work. Any continued use of loud, sustained playback could be more harmful to sensitive birds in the park than Flaco would be as a novice hunter. Flaco might one day be a threat to sensitive birds but he isn’t today. (3/15)

"If you want to witness such moments on safari, you have to be patient and willing to sacrifice any other sightings you hear off. 1/4

#africansafari #lion #bigcats #bigfive #safariadventure #wildlifeconservation #magicalkenya #masaimara #nature #wildlifesafari
This particular day we spent almost 7 hours with this #lion called Bob Marley (notice the dreads under his mane). He would get up every 20 minutes or so and dig the burrow deeper. We had to be ready throughout as the warthog in the burrow could dash out any moment. 2/4
It was coming to the end of the day and we were almost losing hope when it started raining heavy. Bob Marley used this to his advantage as the burrow filled with water and he started splashing the water inside the burrow which confused the #warthogs and made them rush out. 3/4

Found on the slopes of aberdare ranges is Trout and About, a trout hatchery and a campsite in the depth of Kiburu Forest.
A great place to isolate, relax, explore and reconnect with yourself ✨
They have amazing picnic spaces ideal for romance, families, teams, or solo relaxation.
The tents are well equipped with an air mattress, Beddings and there is always bonefire to keep you warm
I recently did a solo trip to the camp and I loved every second of it, the disconnect I had from the rest of the world, exploring the forest and reconnecting with myself just amazing. You can go fishing, hiking, village tours and interacting with the community while at the camp.

3 confessions from #ClimateActivists & #ClimateEconomists seeking to tackle the #ClimateCrisis

We were wrong

-2 promise apple pie & motherhood sans costs
-2 repeat solar PV cheapest form of power sans caveats
-2 dismiss any trade-off between climate & development

Back in the day those, including me, who worked on many different versions of the #greendeal all focused on the win-win scenarios ... #greenjobs #greengrowth #justtransition etc. and tho the context has changed completely this win-win farming remains even in the year 2023
Had we mobilised on a war-footing back then, invested at scale, imposed #carbontaxes, innovated like mad & massively increased financial & technological support 4 developing economies to shun coal & adopt #renewables, the #greendeal may have worked, albeit not without real costs

Je suis un humain,
un enfant,
un joueur,
un artiste,
un créateur.

Je suis une machine biologique et je fais pleinement partie de la nature.

Au même titre que toutes les autres créatures, je considère que tout ce que ...
...l'humain modifie ou créé fait indubitablement partie de la nature, mais surtout qu'aucune exception ne peut être faite quand bien même son niveau extrême de complexité.

C'est pourquoi je pense que toute #technologie fait invariablement partie de la #nature.
Je suis conscient.
Je maîtrise le langage.

Je comprends les mots,
j'en ai construit tout un dictionnaire dans ma tête.
Ils sont des symboles renfermant des concepts.

Ok time to talk about getting those #renewables BUILT. 💪

Slow planning and permitting is stopping us from getting on track for net-zero. My colleagues @ETC_energy have set out what the problems are, and how we can try to address them. A 🧵
1. What's the size of the problem? Both solar and wind need to grow much faster to get on-track for net-zero by 2050. Current projections would lead to a power system that emits 2.2 GtCO2 more each year by 2030!

Need to close that gap!
As an aside, the only country that's crushing VRE deployment? China, obviously - and also Spain (nice one!).

1) When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth,
2) the separate and equal station to which the Laws of #Nature and of Nature's #God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
3) We hold these #truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are #Life, #Liberty and the pursuit of #Happiness.

در این رشته توییت به طور خلاصه و ساده توضییح میدم که چرا ما به کشوری #ورشکسته در زمینه آب تبدیل شدیم.
با یک مقاله که حدودا یک ماه پیش در ژورنال Scientific Reports انتشارات #Nature در مورد کمبود آبِ ایران(با تحلیل داده های بیست ساله #NASA و #DLR) چاپ شده شروع میکنم.1/
#مهسا_امینی Image
این مقاله داده های سری زمانی ماهواره ای رو از سال 2001 تا 2019 در کشور ایران بررسی کرده. بعد از تحلیل داده ها متوجه یک گسترش کشاورزی (27000 کیلومتر مربع) و تشدید قابل توجه کشت (48000 کیلومتر مربع) در این سالها شدند.
در این بازه زمانی یک کاهش قابل توجهی در ذخیره کل آب رو مشاهده کردند و متوجه ارتباط مستقیمش با استفاده ناپایدار از آب های زیرزمینی (عمدتاً برای آبیاری کشاورزی) شدند. جالب اینکه این کاهش بسیار زیاد ذخیره آب به کاهش بارندگی، تبخیر...(عکس پایین Meteorological Water) ربطی نداشته.

🧵 of photos and videos of the waterfalls at the Dead Sea after the rains. The flooding creates spectacle, first some flooding of roads on the way Image
Next some photos of rain near Ein Bokek; these areas don’t get a lot of rain over the year. The area needs water though as the Dead Sea is shrinking ImageImage
This waterfall is at the Salvadora stream

3/10. If you see an insect with a triangular head, bulging eyes, sitting upright with arms folded like in prayer, it is likely a ‘praying’ mantis.

Here is an example. It is not praying, but eating a bumblebee.

(1/8)क्या आपने मक्खन का पेड़ देखा है?

चौंकिए मत! इस तरह के पेड़ उत्तराखंड में अक्सर दिखाई पड़ते है। च्यूर नाम का यह पेड़ देवभूमि वासियों को वर्षों से घी उपलब्ध करा रहा है। इसी खासियत के कारण इसे 'इंडियन बटर ट्री' कहा जाता है।
(2/8)जीबी पंत कृषि एवं प्रौद्योगिकी विश्व विद्यालय के डॉ. वीपी डिमरी बताते हैं कि दूध की तरह मीठा और स्वादिष्ट होने के कारण च्यूर के फलों को चाव से खाया जाता है। दुनिया में तेल वाले पेड़ों की सैकड़ों प्रजातियां हैं, लेकिन कुछ ही ऐसी हैं, जिनसे खाद्य तेल प्राप्त किया जा सकता है।
(3/8)डॉ. डिमरी कहते हैं कि यदि च्यूर के व्यावसायिक उत्पादन को बढ़ावा दिया जाए, तो यह राज्य की आर्थिक स्थिति को बदल सकता है।

च्यूर संरक्षित प्रजाति का पेड़ है और इसे काटने की अनुमति नहीं है। इसके बावजूद च्यूरा के पेड़ों की संख्या लगातार घट रही है।

Beware the disingenuous narrative from #biodiversity financiers ahead of #COP15. It goes like this:
1. We need to integrate #nature into our economies to protect it (except no one has ever demonstrated that we do, & history of conservation shows that we don’t) 1/6
2. Markets on nature are happening anyway, we just need to ensure good governance (they are not happening anyway, private lobbies are actively promoting them, and their conceptual issues go way beyond governance) 2/6…
In fact, off the record most financiers, environmental & policy experts agree that they will most probably be an environmental failure and a political success, just like carbon offsets, i.e. they will buy time to continue maximising growth 3/6

🌱For the next couple of weeks, countries are coming together at the @UNBiodiversity #COP15 to adopt the landmark “Global Biodiversity Framework”.

➡️But what are the 7⃣elements that must be included in that framework, for it to be really ambitious & transformative?

A thread⤵️ Image
1⃣ - A clear and ambitious “Mission” for 2030, to halt and reverse the loss of #biodiversity and secure a #NaturePositive world by the end of the decade.

👉It means that in 2030, we have more #Nature than there is now.… Image
2⃣ - 2030 targets to conserve at least 30% of land, freshwater and oceans, and restore degraded ecosystems globally - placing Indigenous Peoples & local communities at the centre of conservation policies.

I'm betting there are maybe two or three people on Twitter that can correctly identify these...and they probably have me blocked lol #nature Image
So they are cuttlefish eggs! I believe they maybe from a common cuttlefish (Sepia officinalis) but I am not really sure. Hopefully a #cephalopod #cuttlefish #teammollusk expert will see this and comment. If all goes well they will hatch and grow out!
One just hatched!! No question they are cuttlefish now! Image
