Netzero announcements ✅
But is the available carbon space being fairly shared?
➡️by 2050, China, the US, & the EU are likely to occupy over 90% of the available 1.5°C #carbonspace.
➡️by 2030, they would consume 45% of the available carbon space.

Read 👇
The study also found that the #netzero commitments made by the 10 big emitters are inadequate and would surpass the 1.5°C #carbon space by 33% by 2050.

We propose that:
➡️the US, China & the EU should consider advancing their #netzero years by a decade & aim to turn net negative by 2050.
✅This would help contain warming within the 1.5°C #carbonbudget threshold suggested by the recent #IPCC report.

#India recently announced the National Hydrogen Mission & there's growing interest among leading industry players in #greenhydrogen.
But why is green H2 significant for India's #energytransition?
#pressrelease: bit.ly/3l3b8fc
In a new study, we examined how #greenhydrogen can help in cleaner steelmaking. We found that:
▶️9% blend of #green H2 in steel making would ⬇️India's emissions footprint by 68%
▶️This #greensteel would be competitive with upper range of conventional steel costs at current rates
If #greenhydrogen costs fell to 1.3-2.2 USD/kg from the current 4-4.5 USD/kg, steelmaking based entirely on #green H2 could break even with #coal-based processes in #India. Globally, electrolyser manufacturers have already committed to a green H2 cost of 1.5 USD/kg by 2025.

THREAD: This draft proposed rule is Orwellian, and goes against our fundamental belief in the dignity of the person and the sanctity of family. It is a 328-page instruction manual for overbroad government data collection and an affront to our democracy.

Even survivors of trafficking and domestic violence, including children, will have to comply or be ineligible for protection. Reading through the draft proposed language is truly chilling. The administration should put the brakes on this proposed rule immediately.
