They’ll tell you that ‘we’ the fishermen and our families are labour activists. They’ll tell you that Labour have brainwashed and coerced us. ‘We’ are forcing an anti-freeport agenda. That they’re using us for their political gains.
Shame on them: exploiting political conflict for their own motives to make themselves sleep better at night.

They haven’t. We are not any one political party and we have our own voice - and their voice does not represent ours.
Their empty requests for financial report are a haphazard launched into the abyss so satisfy the media frenzy, to acknowledge that they were never going to consider anything but their own agenda. As if it ever could…

Good morning #medtwitter! Today #scientissimum would like to show you a #publichealth case of poor working conditions. Did you know that according to @WHO almost 2million people die from work-related causes each year? 450,000 deaths were related to workplace air #pollution 💨
(particulate matter, gases, and fumes). Any #job in the world has a meaning, whether you are a #doctor, #constructionworker or #janitor - each plays a very important role in the #society. However, no money in the world can ever buy the #health you need to continue #living and
and enjoying your #life. #Work smart and don’t expose yourselves to the dangerous situations, that may lead to the tragic outcomes!🦺

#Forests are a common good, and they benefit everyone.

Healthy, intact forests are essential for #Biodiversity, the climate, and Indigenous Peoples and forest-dependent communities around the world who rely on them for their lives, livelihoods, and cultural survival. Image
Protecting forests is essential if governments and institutions want to truly address the triple planetary crisis — #ClimateChange, #Biodiversity loss, & #Pollution — and achieve their global climate & environmental goals.
The onslaught of illegal logging, together with agricultural deforestation and climate-fueled wildfires, is destroying forests, affecting biodiversity, and turning forests from carbon sinks into carbon bombs.

Fourth post in the #WildlifeWeek series. Today’s post is more of a #reviving one than #reintroduction.

Day 4 – Return of the #bandits to #Chambal !

The Red Crowned Roofed #turtle is a #species of #freshwater turtle endemic to South #Asia.
1/9
Historically the species was widespread in the #Ganga River, both in #India and #Bangladesh. Extirpated from most of its former range but currently it has dwindled a last surviving population of less than 500 adult individuals in the #wild.
2/9
Their population reduced drastically due to depredation of eggs and hatchlings by Golden #jackals, #habitat degradation due to #pollution and illegal sand mining in the floodplains. They are also extensively #poached for their meat and shell.

🧵1/7 - THE UTTER MADNESS OF THIS

After 50yrs of 'area-based payments' under EU Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), there are some concerns about #FoodSecurity

The Liz Truss govt seems to be saying that the answer is to carry on with area-based payments?!

theguardian.com/environment/20…
🧵2/7
Their argument is to 'concentrate' on food production, rather than sustainability (exactly what EU CAP did)

And yet, a 2021 @DefraGovUK report concluded that biggest threats to our #FoodSecurity come from the #climate and #nature crisis

Go figure

gov.uk/government/col…
🧵3/7
There is no such thing as #FoodSecurity if our soils are knackered and being washed away, our pollinators are in decline, and our crops facing heat & water stress

We @WildlifeTrusts run 26 working farms, so we do know a thing or two about this..

EU expresses "deep concern" about UK releases of raw sewage into the sea. In the #brexit deal, the UK promised not to regress from existing EU environmental law. The European Commission is monitoring the situation, an official tells MEPs. @EP_Fisheries @VSinkevicius
European Commission is watching for changes to UK environmental law to check there is no "regression" from existing EU marine standards. EU is also gathering evidence from France on the possible impact of UK sewage releases. #brexit #sewage
The EU would also like to remind the UK that, despite #brexit, the UK is still a signatory to the Convention for the Protection of the Marine Environment of the North-East Atlantic

#Technology: "One way to reduce #transport emissions relatively quickly, and potentially globally, is to swap cars for #cycling, e-#biking and #walking – active travel, as it’s called."

theconversation.com/cycling-is-ten… #solutions
"Tackling the #climate and air #pollution #crises requires curbing all motorised #transport, particularly private cars, as quickly as possible. Focusing solely on #ElectricVehicles is slowing down the race to zero emissions."
"We also estimate that urban residents who switched from driving to cycling for just one trip per day reduced their carbon footprint by about half a tonne of CO₂ over the course of a year, and save the equivalent emissions of a one-way flight from London to New York."

Hear our @ERGImperial experts discuss #pollution on @BBCRadio4 🔽

“Are we certain that UK air pollution levels have negative impacts on health? Yes. Are they shortening years of healthy living? Yes. Are they worsening symptoms of vulnerable people? Yes."

bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/m0…
But where does pollution come from? Dr Ian Mudway says: “A small amount comes from the tailpipes of vehicles, but more of it comes from tyre, brake wear, and road dust.

“The reason we have a focus on exhaust emissions is because there is real evidence they matter.”
Air quality expert @AndyGrieveAir explains the @Breathe_London project:

“It provides smaller, cheaper, easier to install air monitors. They’re solar-powered and even fit on lampposts – this opens up air monitoring and means we can get to new places we couldn’t get to before.”
