Message from performers from #OceanRebellion wearing ‘Fish Heads’ & pinstripe suits made a last minute plea to the UK Government to use their power & influence to end the war on fish

READ, share🐟 🧵⬇️ #WorldFisheriesDay

📸 Guy Reece
The ‘Fish Heads’ stood in pools of blood, dead fish & entrails outside the front entrance of DEFRA. The ‘Fish Heads’ carried briefcases with WAR ON FISH, ECOCIDE and END OVERFISHING emblazoned on the side. It’s time to take action to #EndOverfishing #OceanRebellion #Ocean
Background ‘NO MORE FISH IN THE SEA’ highlighting the fate of the UK seas if the UK government turns against nature & doesn’t make a commitment to a better planet #WorldFisheriesDay

🚨🌍 Global Carbon Budget 2022, out now!🌍🚨

It provides the latest update on how we humans have tampered with Earth's remarkable system of #carbon stocks and flows.

So what are the take-homes from our latest update?

@gcarbonproject @PFriedling
It's a story of persistent high global #CO2 emissions, but with some hints (and some hope!) that *total* human #emissions are levelling off.

(Although with considerable uncertainty in the land use change emissions).
But did anyone mention that we need to get that red line 👆 to hit zero to meet the commitments made in #Paris?

🚨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.

🙈Spoiler alert🙉

#FullyProtected #MPAs can can significantly enhance:

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

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.

🚀 We are live! Here is the correct streaming link for all of today's discussions and performances, starting with a panel on complex time with David Krakauer, James Gleick, Ted Chiang, and David Wolpert in a few moments (measured linearly...):

"One of the ideas we had with #InterPlanetary was, 'What would it take to make science hedonistic? And instead of telling people to do it, you'd have to tell people to STOP doing it?"

David Krakauer: "Do you have a favorite model or metaphor for #time?"

@JamesGleick: "You've already mentioned a river; that's everybody's favorite. Borges said time is a tiger. People talk about it as a thread. We ONLY talk about time in metaphors." Image

Oct 12 2022: "Deep-sea miner stock jumps after first seafloor collection since 1970s"

The "#greatreset" (#Commonwealth w/ WEF as secretariat) includes deep sea #mining. The annihilation of #oceans carried out under guise of sustainability.

#UN #SDGs…
"The fields in the CCZ represent the largest known, undeveloped #nickel resource on the planet & is estimated to contain over 3 times the amount of #cobalt, almost 2 x the amount of nickel & as much #manganese as all global land-based reserves, combined."

#Privatization of the #oceans will allow for ocean exploration & deep sea #mining - both essential for the fourth industrial revolution infrastructure desired by the ruling class technocrats. #4IR #EVs #Salesforce

THREAD - You're likely to see the hashtag #BBNJ pop up on yr screen in the next 2 weeks. It refers to Biodiversity Beyond National Jurisdiction - the #HighSeas, the portion of ocean that lies beyond the Exclusive Economic Zone of coastal States - 200 nautical miles. Boring? Wait!
THREAD CONTINUES 2/2 - The term #BBNJ used by #ocean policy nerds may sound boring or complicated to laypersons, but you'll realize it's a very big deal when you know that the #highseas represent 64% of the global ocean, less than 45% of our entire planet! [To follow...]
THREAD CONTINUES (3) - Humankind has been interacting with the #HighSeas for a long time, but our impact has increased in recent times. We've been sailing and shipping stuff across the high seas since time immemorial.

The Arctic is warming faster than anywhere else on the planet, and its wildlife is being slowly poisoned by industrial toxins brought over by the wind and currents.

Scientists around the world are trying to figure out why 🧵
🇳🇴 The town of Longyearbyen in Svalbard, a Norwegian archipelago in the Arctic Ocean, is known as one of the best places to see the Northern Lights.

But it’s also the fastest warming town on Earth.
Founded as a mining town in the early 1900s, Longyearbyen still has a mine and a coal-fired power station - the last in Norway 🏭

But things are about to change as the town prepares to fully shift to renewables in the coming years.

June 8 marks #WorldOceanDay.

We honor this day by highlighting the need to protect marine life from human #fishing activities—a step that has the potential to both tackle biodiversity loss and the ongoing climate crisis. @WorldOceansDay👇 1/10
Ocean ecosystems are vital since oceans:

🗺️ make up 70% of Earth’s surface
🫁 produce 80% of the oxygen we breathe
🐠 house 80% of all life on Earth

At the same time:
🎣98.5% of the #ocean is open to fishing fleets

Human activity is the number one threat to #ocean health.

An initiative led by @aquaticlifeins urges consumers to protect oceans by choosing #PlantBased seafood alternatives and improving the legal protection of marine animals, @matthewzampa reports. 3/10…

A thread about #whales🐳 in the latest @IPCC_CH report on climate.
1) We are already seeing, with a high level of confidence, reproductive failures and declining abundances due to warmer polar oceans and reduced sea ice.
2) North Atlantic Right and Gray whales are the two most vulnerable marine mammal species, both of whom are already critically endangered. #NARW
3) The extinction of the these #whale species (and reduction in others) will disproportionately eliminate unique and important evolutionary lineages as well as functional diversity, with consequent impacts THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE MARINE ECOSYSTEM.

#Web3 Nedir?
'İnternet Kültüründe bir değişimdir! Tek cümle ile internetin bir sonra ki çağı. Web3, demokratikleştirilmiş ve Merkeziyetsizleştirilmiş bir İnternete doğru bir paradigma kaymasıdır'

Web3 hizmet eden Projeler⬇️
1-)Web3 teknolojisini algılayabilmek için öncelikle daha önceki sürümleri Web-1 sonrasında Web-2 teknolojilerini hakim olmak gerekir.
2-)Web-1 İnternetin ilk aşaması ve kullanıcıların başlangıçta web ile etkileşime girme şekli ile karakterize edilebilir. Web 1.0’da çoğu kullanıcı, içeriğin pasif tüketicileriydi. Bir başka deyişle, Web 1.0 yazmakla değil; okumakla ilgiliydi. Dinamik değil, statikti.

Models project that #ocean #phytoplankton will become increasingly starved of #nitrogen as #climatechange progresses.

If realised, this has implications for #fisheries.

But how can we monitor this change in the real ocean?

Nitrogen isotopes!
What are nitrogen (N) isotopes?

There is a heavy isotope (15-N) and a light isotope (14-N).

Some processes prefer to use 14-N more than 15-N. When phytoplankton use nitrogen, they prefer 14-N.

This increases the ratio of 15-N to 14-N in seawater.
But when N is scarce, phytoplankton have less preference.

Like if there was only one kind of pizza at a party, you don't have the option of being picky (you have to have the pineapple).

In this case, phytoplankton no longer increase the ratio of 15-N to 14-N in seawater.

1. Both predators and prey animals use camouflage to their advantage.

Prey animals blend in with the background, so hungry predators pass right by them.

🧵 Start of a thread with some amazing videos on #Camouflage.

I like this one. 🙂

#cats #pets

2. But predators use camouflage too.

The striated frogfish (Antennarius striatus) walks the seafloor right up to its unsuspecting prey.

It has a prognathous mouth that launches an attack on prey in as fast as 6 milliseconds.
