Début à #Modane de la journée de déplacement sur le thème de la sauvegarde publique des barrages hydroélectriques et de l’inutile grand projet Lyon-Turin.
Les barrages hydroélectriques sont un bien commun stratégique essentiel, rien n’oblige la France à les privatiser contrairement à ce que prétend le gouvernement. Pas plus que les autoroutes ou les aéroports il faut les abandonner au secteur concurrentiel #ToutChangerEnsemble
Démonstration éclatante de Philippe André, syndicaliste Sud Énergie spécialiste de l’hydroélectricité, sur le rôle particulier et stratégique des barrages dans le système électrique. S’en priver c’est affaiblir dramatiquement le service public et faire augmenter les factures.

Ten #MMT tips to remember on #TaxDay:
1. Federal #taxes don't fund federal spending, so let's #decouple these two important tools.
2. Taxes offset #Government spending.
3. It's a matter of #logic: #dollars must be spent into existence (by the Gov) first, in order for us to use some of those $ to pay taxes
4. #Taxing for #revenue is for local states/municipalities, not the #sovereign issuer of the #currency.
5. Taxing excessive wealth protects #democracy from #Oligarchy and protects us from abusive market power
6. Taxing #pollution & #speculation to reduce such activities, not to "fund" #healthcare and #education.

Quand #Trump rappelle en 1 tweet que durant ses 4 ans de présidence, il ne fera RIEN pour la transition énergétique US vers moins de CO2 émis par habitant et contre le dérèglement climatique. S'il est réélu, quasi mortel pour la planète. #climat #carbone RT
2) Pour mémoire, les émissions de CO2 par habitant en 2014 dans le monde. On comprend mieux la signification du renoncement de l'administration #Trump à la moindre transition énergétique aux #EtatsUnis. (source: NYTimes- juin 2017) #climat #carbone
3) Car #Trump, ce n'est pas que des tweets... pour l'#environnement, c'est 1 programme méthodique et bien défini de "dérégulation carbone", visant à affranchir la production et la consommation d'#énergie de toute limite d'émissions de GES au nom de la souveraineté US...

Here’s a thread that nobody asked for comparing today’s urgent global problems to dim sum.
1/14 Nuclear Weapons v. Xiao Long Bao: Treat with respect or face intense explosion, third degree burns and worse. Experts disagree on how to handle in a never-ending debate. Also, it’s a challenging dish to make. #globalzero #nuclearweapons
2/14 Climate Crisis v. Chicken Feet: Look, you can’t soft sell this. It’s not chicken “change” for chrissakes. It’s the most intimidating item on the table, and there’s no disguising it for what it is. Deniers are vocal. #climatechange #globalwarming

Cet été, des ONG dont @sdnfr ont déposé plainte contre EDF pour une pollution de l’eau par le tritium rejeté par la centrale nucléaire de @EDFCruasMeysse. 190 Bq/L, contre 10 en temps normal...

Mais le SCANDALE est ailleurs, aux portes de Paris !

bit.ly/2R5GlC0
En 2017, des rejets SCANDALEUX, de tritium ont eu lieu dans la Seine, en amont de #Paris par la centrale #nucléaire de Nogent. Assez de becquerels pour polluer TROIS CENT MILLIARDS DE LITRES #pollution #scandale #COP21 #LaffaireDuSiecle !!!
Et le pire, c’est qu’elle y est AUTORISÉE ! Même par l'@ASN ! Et le tritium, ce n’est que la partie émergée de l'iceberg qui fond ! Carbone 14, iode et gaz rares radioactifs, produits de fission et d’activation…

A taste of how @narendramodi is putting systems into place to ensure a better future for #India & preserve the #environment . #ModiFor2019
Have just come back after taking a round of a large #sewage treatment plant of a facility that's going under live monitoring
1/n
The @PMOIndia ,@moefcc ,@CPCB_OFFICIAL & other statutory bodies have begun work on a massive interconnected net of sensors that will measure & monitor wastewater being generated & treated at all large commercial & industrial units in #India. 2/n
This system is designed to ensure no large #industry or facility can release untreated #sewage & harm the #environment.
The readings from the sensors will be monitored live at 7 locations including the @PMOIndia .

Giving shelter to the homeless finally matters to the rich, gas guzzling, air purifier owning #Delhi people. Because in the winter the homeless will light small bonfires to keep warm and that adds to the #pollution that affects us. So yeah, "where are the shelters?"
It's come down to the farmers, truck drivers and the homeless to change what their actions to save us from #DelhiPollution

All what we have to do is buy masks, purifiers, reduce the use aerosols and nail polish removers and what not so that our families are protected..
Forget cars, can we stop using just diesel cars everyday in the city, or car pool more? NO. Public transport is so hard. Our apartment/bungalow gates don't open into metro stations. Unless there is an app for it, with a virtual wallet promising doorstep pick up and drop, NO.

At a packed Exeter HATOC for @ExeterCycling to stand witness to what Councillors & Officers say about cycle safety & speed compliance.
There's plenty of time to discuss the minutiae of bus/taxi issues.
Jamie Hulland (DCC) updating on Exeter Transport Steering Group, making reference to @ExeterCycling 8 point plan (which he states will be replied to in the January HATOC)

How bad off is the #US after electing #Trump? ...even senators who think that the #US is just fine without an effective #healthcare system for all interc.pt/2xgJtOA⚠️#freethbear #IndyCalifornia /1
...are finding faults with #Trump's idea of what makes a fit judiciary yahoo.com/news/trump-jud… /2
Mostly those with deep pockets can get access to federal court now - not much different for access adequate #healthcare for the most part; but @JohnKennedyLA doesn't see that ➡️ he thinks that #justice and healthcare for some is 🆗 /3
