3 confessions from #ClimateActivists & #ClimateEconomists seeking to tackle the #ClimateCrisis

We were wrong

-2 promise apple pie & motherhood sans costs
-2 repeat solar PV cheapest form of power sans caveats
-2 dismiss any trade-off between climate & development

Back in the day those, including me, who worked on many different versions of the #greendeal all focused on the win-win scenarios ... #greenjobs #greengrowth #justtransition etc. and tho the context has changed completely this win-win farming remains even in the year 2023
Had we mobilised on a war-footing back then, invested at scale, imposed #carbontaxes, innovated like mad & massively increased financial & technological support 4 developing economies to shun coal & adopt #renewables, the #greendeal may have worked, albeit not without real costs

A sustainable finance taxonomy is a critical policy instrument for identifying if and to what extent economic activities contribute to international goals and national commitments aligned with the #ParisAgreement and/or the #SDGs. 🧵 Image
Taxonomies can increase the #resilience of financial systems by enhancing the management of #sustainability risks and contribute to closing the funding gap for implementing #sustainableactivities.
There has been enormous momentum across the world to systematically integrate sustainability into financial decision making. However, channeling capital into sustainability-aligned investments requires a clear definition and common understanding of what qualifies as #sustainable

Thread: Until republicans figure out that the UN WEF technocrats have taken over every aspect of life (government, civil society, academia, corporations & NGOs), they will never understand what is happening in our country therefore they will continue fighting the wrong fight.
As John Kerry said yesterday, technocrats do not care about a politician or election. Why? Because of private/public partnerships (fascism). The government gives corporations money to change everyone’s behaviors which cuts congress out of the picture (no democracy).
Republicans call democrats Marxists and communists (which there is a wing of) but the Biden/Obama wing, plus Bush/McConnell republicans, are technocrats. This thread is a start to understanding what technocracy is.

According to the African Development Bank @AfDB_Group, good governance should be built on a foundation of (I) effective states, (ii) mobilized civil societies, and (iii) an efficient private sector.
The key elements of good governance globally are accountability, transparency, combating corruption, citizen participation, and an enabling legal/judicial framework.
Youth Inclusiveness in Politics and business will set a Nation on a path of Sustainable Development and National Growth, as youths are inspiration, source of creation and inventions in every society.

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

Too many people are suffering the domino effects of challenges that know no borders. In the face of global crises, global solutions are needed.

Here are 🔟 ways you can take action for a world where no one is left behind on #WorldFoodDay & beyond 🧵👇
1⃣ Be better informed

If you want to do your part, the first step is to know what is happening in the world. You can read newspapers, listen to the radio, or search for news online, but make sure that your sources are #verified & reliable.

2⃣ Write to your representatives

Letters, tweets, posts or emails can be a very effective way of urging decision-makers to act, for example, by asking them to accelerate action towards achieving the #SDGs.

Introducing 🇪🇺 #YouthActionPlan for external action! Its objectives are clear:

🔸empower youth and give them a real voice

🔸provide them with the tools to shape solutions to global challenges

🔸drive change towards a greener, fairer, and more peaceful planet

How? 🧵👇
✨ENGAGE!✨ Youth, especially women, are not adequately represented in decision-making.

I started politics young, so I know the challenges.

Our Youth and Women in Democracy Initiative notably will support youth-led organisations in pushing for electoral and democratic reforms. Image
✨EMPOWER!✨ Young people need hope – and skills and resources to put #SDGs back on track!

🇪🇺 is stepping up #InvestInEducation globally.

And now we launch the Youth Empowerment Fund. It allows youth to access small-scale funding for their projects promoting #SDGs. Image

❌Shallow-water mining undermines global sustainability goals ❌

Happy to share our new article in @Trends_Ecol_Evo with @ea_virtan

Read here #openaccess:…

📜In a nutshell 🧵⬇️
2/ Global infrastructure development & transition to low-carbon technologies call for new solutions to increasing mineral demand. Seabed mining is often framed as a sustainable alternative to traditional terrestrial mining, with hopes for lower environmental & societal risks
3/ You may have heard of plans for #deepseamining, but mineral resources of the near-shore continental shelves around the world have also been suggested to be a low-risk option to satisfy our resource demands due to lower extraction costs and concerns surrounding DSM
