1. I’m fascinated by the beauty of nature and enjoy learning more every day. Look for instance at these mushrooms realising millions of microscopic spores to propagate.

🧵 A thread about the beauty of planet earth, our only home.

2. That’s right, it’s our only home. That means we have to be extra careful, we don’t have a spare.

When it heats up, or loses it’s complex ecosystems, we will all be in trouble.

NASA took this photo of the dark side of the moon from 1 million miles away.

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. 🙂

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.

#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.

Thokozani Ogogo No Mkhulu👏

Indeed there is a difference below stated.

There is Umdawe we #Nhlanga most reverted to Inzunza (Njunju)

There Umdawe Called #Mfukwa in many relevance this is a ndawu spirit that is traded in. Eg one goes to ElMorcambique at Tete, Mamboni, Image
Nyembani or Ngorogouza & attain such spirit to work with it.

There is An Ndawu spirit called #Mdliwa this is a spirit of an Ndawu descendant that was brutally murderd in order to serve a certain purpose or none then returns as a spirit of mdliwa (O wa dliwa)
NB : Mdliwa & Mfukwa most believe it's the same. But it's not, yet have the same side effects.

Lastly Mdashana (An ndawu that died at a young age) this is Similar to Umnono.

సముద్రం ఓ ప్రపంచం. లక్షలాది జీవరాశులకు కన్న తల్లి.

పద్యం రాస్తున్నాను
సముద్రం చూస్తూ ఉంది
స్ర్తిలింగం పుంలింగం ధరించిన జలధి
ఒకరికి తండ్రి సముద్రుడు
ఒకరికి తల్లి సముద్రం!

ఉధృతమై అలలు ముందుకురుకుతుంటే
ప్రమాదాన్ని పసిగట్టి సముద్రుడు
ముక్కుతాడేసి లాగుతుంటాడు
అలల్లో చిక్కిన మానవుడు
అసువులు బాసినపుడు
అలలెంతగా కన్నీరు విరజిమ్ముతాయో
వీక్షకులు ప్రత్యక్ష సాక్షులు
విగత జీవుల్ని వొడ్డుకు చేర్చి
సముద్ర గర్భంలో ఎవరూ దాగిలేరని
శే్వతపత్రం విడుదల చేస్తుంది
నిద్రించే చరాచరాలకు
మేల్కొల్పు చెప్పటానికి
సముద్రం నిత్యం ఘోషిస్తుంది
సూర్యుడు చంద్రుడు తన బిడ్డలని
పగలు రాత్రి తోడుండే అమరులని
మురిపెంగా చెప్పి మురుస్తుంది!
సముద్రుడు అరిస్టాటిల్‌కు
ప్రియాతి ప్రియమిత్రుడు
వొడ్డున నిల్చిన వీక్షకులకు
ఓడను పైనించి కిందికి
అంచెలంచెలుగా చూపి

In the #LongFoodMovement report, we're reminded that the world’s 30 million artisanal #fishers and workers provide nearly half of the #fish we eat (@IPBES, 2019).

But with #climatechange & island/ocean grabbing, small-scale fishers & their communities are in peril.

🧵Thread 👇🏾
Island/#ocean grabbing is likely to intensify as countries seek to solidify their influence, their #food supply chains, & their global sourcing and distribution networks. For example, in the #RedSea region, conflicts over fish & other marine resources threaten rich #biodiversity.
Meanwhile, in the South China Sea, said to
have some of the highest marine #biodiversity on earth, #China has been building airstrips, ports & other facilities on disputed islands & reefs, w/ the apparent aim of establishing military bases (cf. Ives,
2016).

Why I am disgusted by the human species.

Speciesism Part 2: Marine Life

It is estimated that up to 3 trillion fish are caught from the wild & killed globally every year: This doesn’t include the billions of fish that are farmed. Fish account for 40% of animal products consumed
Fish farming is forecast to overtake wild-caught fish production in 2021: For context, farmed fish accounts for 70% of all farmed animals worldwide. This presents a host of problems. For example, shrimp farming has led to the destruction of three million acres of coastal wetlands
Like all captivity of sentient life fish farming is creating disease. This ends up in the wider ecosystem damaging and polluting wildlife.

"Harvesting the oceans under the Blue Economy": "The #OECD suggests that the #ocean economy is likely to outpace the global economy in the next 15 years."

#GreatReset #NewDealForNature #DeepSeaMining
Under guise of protecting #biodiversity:

"Framed as perhaps the last untapped, under-explored & under-exploited region in the world, the Pacific #Ocean is set to be a contested space for resources."

#WorldEconomicForum #SDGs
"The #BlueEconomy heralds a new race to carve up the Pacific, turning the Pacific Ocean, from surface to seafloor, into a crowded/contested space. Pacific state leaders are courted w/ economic gains that are a fraction of the value of the ocean resources that will be #extracted."

"The fourth industrial revolution - it's a fusion of the physical, the digital & the biological world. It's changing not only what we are doing, it's changing who we are."

Schwab: "The speed is mind boggling. What I'm particularly concerned about, is how little the world is prepared."

Satya Nadella, #Mircosoft: "It's really the notion of digital technology pervasively impacting every walk of life & every [] industry, in all parts of the globe."

Let's start w/ the ruling class imperative to rebrand #capitalism (Oct, 23, 2020) - in order to save it.

Schwab: "At the forefront [we need] to create a new model,
a new concept, a new definition of capitalism...

Schwab, continued: "the old definition comprises only financial capital. But actually human & social capital, [] & of course natural capital - is as important as financial capital."

#TIME is owned by Marc Benioff, founder/CEO of #Salesforce. Benioff, member of #WorldEconomicForum Board of Trustees, is the Inaugural Chair of WEF's Forum Center for the #FourthIndustrialRevolution. He is co-founder of Breakthrough Energy w/ Gates et al. (#Nuclear, CCS, etc.).
#COVID19.

Important thread.

Q: What does #Imperial College, the World Economic Forum (#WEF), #Salesforce, #Sinovation Ventures (Chinese technology venture capital), #ABB (#automation technology), global artificial intelligence (#AI), all have in common?

Not enough minerals/ rare Earth metals remain on Earth's terrain, to supply depraved #4IR architecture designed/sought by Benioff, Schwab et al.

Thus, they intend to mine the #oceans under guise of watchdog. Holistic linguistics. #Safe #Responsible
