I looked up Equity #ETFs with #ESG in their description using the Bloomberg function, "ETF"

$334bn in total AUM

Wow, investors are hungry for this

so took a “deep dive” into the largest - $22bn iShares ESG Aware MSCI USA
“composed of U.S. companies that have positive environmental, social & governance characteristics as identified by the index provider”

“.. that applies the following business involvement screens:

civilian firearms, controversial weapons, tobacco, thermal coal and oil sands”
Seems clear

First up, Tobacco

WHO says it kills 8m / yr

And I detest smoking – this is easy

I also hate guns, will never own one

But how many people do firearms kill?

Amnesty Intl, - 1.4m firearm-related deaths globally between 2012 & 2016

Can I tell you about a company that grew Adjusted EBITDA 8x in H1 & is below 3x earnings?

Grew? I thought you were a Value guy

I am

And we want growth

we just don’t want to pay too much for it

What’s with the EBITDA reference, I thought you don’t like that metric?
I don’t really

Because companies with a huge & unaffordable interest bill can look great with Earnings BEFORE Interest…

They just look shoddy afterwards

But I look at EBITDA because it shows me a different angle

Like looking at yourself in the mirror at various angles
although I do that less these days..

I just don’t STOP at EBITDA

Because it's like stopping at a good looking Cash Flow number

but not noticing it’s due to lower inventory – you can’t cut inventory forever

Or stopping at the Cash on the Balance Sheet

but not spotting

[Documentary] Seaspiracy -2021

சிலர் சுற்றுச்சூழலை பாதுகாப்பா வைக்கனும்னு நினைப்பார்கள். அதுக்காக ரொம்ப மெனக்கெடுவார்கள். வாட்டர் பாட்டில் , துணிப்பை கொண்டு போவார்கள்.

அது போல கடல் உயிரினங்கள் மற்றும் கடல் மேல் மிகவும் ஆர்வம் கொண்டவர் Ali Tabrizi

#tamilhollywoodreviews #Tamil Image
அதிலும் குறிப்பாக திமிங்கிலங்கள் மேல் மிகவும் ஆர்வம் கொண்டவர். 

திமிங்கிலங்கள் எண்ணிக்கை குறைய முக்கிய காரணம் நாம் உபயோகிக்கும் பிளாஸ்டிக் பொருட்கள் என்பதால் ப்ளாஸ்டிக்கை கூட உபயோகப் படுத்தாத மனுஷன். ஹோட்டல் போன கூட மரத்தால் செஞ்ச கரண்டிய எடுத்துக் கொண்டு போகிறார்.
இவருக்கு ஜப்பான் நாட்டில் திமிங்கிலங்கள் மற்றும் டால்பின்கள் கொல்லப்படுவதாக கேள்விப்பட்டு வீடியோ எடுக்க போகிறார்.
அங்கு நடப்பது கொடூரமாக உள்ளது
டால்பின்களை கொல்கிறார்கள்.  அதுக்கு அவர்கள் சொல்லும் காரணம் டால்பின்கள் நிறைய மீன்களை சாப்பிடுவதால் எங்களுக்கு மீன்கள் கிடைப்பதில்லை.

#Whales & #dolphins are facing many manmade existential threats: depletion of food by overfishing, drop in birthrates due to industrial pollution, killing by discarded fishnets & plastics etc
#Watch #Seaspiracy. It’s #seas #piracy. It’s #conspirasea
Over 300,000 #whales and #dolphins are killed as bycatch in #fishnets every year. People eating #seafood is the reason that fishing trawlers go to sea & cause these deaths of whales & dolphins. #Boycott #seafood. It’s #seas #piracy
Watch #Seaspiracy
3/6 🦈
Every year at least 50 million #sharks are killed as #bycatch in commercial #fishing. 90% of sharks have been lost in the last few decades. Eating seafood contributes to the bykill of sharks and other #sealife.

Hoy toca desmontar otros tres puntos de #Seaspiracy:
1. La pesca es la mayor responsable del plástico del océano
2. No habrá peces en los océanos en 2048
3. La mayor amenaza para los arrecifes de coral es la pesca, ya que los peces aportan nutrientes Image
Antes que nada, les recuerdo que existe una parte 1 de este hilo en la que se analizan estos tres mitos:
1. Cetáceos fertilizando fitoplancton
2. Caza de delfines en Taiji
3. Caza de tiburones y finning

Dicho esto, da comienzo Conspirasea parte 2

1. El documental coge un dato real que señala que el 46% de la isla de plástico del pacífico está compuesta por redes de pesca y lo generaliza, asumiendo que esta proporción funciona de igual manera en el resto del océano. ImageImageImageImage

Sind die Aussagen innerhalb der Doku #Seaspiracy über den industriellen Fischfang & die damit verbundenen Auswirkungen korrekt? Ein #BBC-Team nahm sich einigen Behauptungen an und unterzog sie einem #Faktencheck. #BlueWashing

You've probably heard about the new documentary on Netflix, @seaspiracy, which is about the environmental impacts of commercial fishing.

I am going to watch it now and tweet some highlights. This is going to be important.

a thread 🧵
The oceans are home to up to 80% of *all life* on earth.

The vast majority of the ocean remains unexplored 😯…
Plastics are a prob. Dead animals are often found w/ plastic waste in their stomaches. Plastics also breakdown into invisible micro-particles which we then might consume. Emerging research on the effects of microplastics on our health doesn't look good.….

We need a whole new relationship with our blue planet. This means abandoning micro-consumerist bollocks and confronting the powerful interests trashing it.
My column:…
It’s not just malpractice Seaspiracy exposes, but an entire worldview.

A worldview that describes any fish population not caught to the max as "underfished" or "underexploited".

We need to learn respect and wonder for the ecosystems we currently treat as nothing but seafood.
I've just discovered, via @Unpop_Science, that I made a mistake in this column: #Seaspiracy's figure for illegally caught fish is in fact supported in the scientific literature:…
I confused this paper for another, that has been retracted.

1/ watched the netflix documentary #seaspiracy last night. the journalism is bad, but not abysmal, and I'd still recommend it for hammering home an underreported thesis that the fishing industry wrecks oceans more than plastic

that said...
2/ they get googlable facts wrong. the claim that all fisheries will collapse by 2048 is dumb misinformation.

they cite a headline *from 2006* based on a projection the study authors no longer use and that scientists have rebutted for more than a decade…
3/ they consistently tell half the story. one small example: fish farms have loads of problems, true, but wild catch is becoming less of an issue.

over the last 20 years wild catch has fallen even while production tripled because fish are fed more plants…

Of course some of the people exposed by #Seaspiracy are going ballistic about it. What else can they do but shoot the messenger? The years of collusion, cowardice and failure have come home to roost.
As for the film's other critics: yes, there are details we could quibble over, as with all films. But, you know what? I didn't hear a word from them about the massive falsehoods and misdirections in Blue Planet 2 and Blue Planet Live. Why is it only the radical films they attack?
I don't think I've ever seen a series of such pathetic attempts to knock something down as the criticisms aimed at #Seaspiracy. They're either wrong, or so trivial/irrelevant that they just look like sour grapes. Finally, this issue is properly on the map. We should be cheering.

Something's changed - I was allowed on the Today programme this morning!
I was challenged, among other things, on the #Seaspiracy claim that 46% of plastic in The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is from fishing nets. Here's the source, in case anyone doubts it…
Many of the attacks on Seaspiracy are themselves based on false claims, or false refutations of the statements the film makes. It's a lot more rigorous than Cowspiracy, and stands up well to examination.
The segment started at 0823 this morning. The Today programme gave the subject a fair bit of time, for which I thank them:…

There are shocking examples in #Seaspiracy of "conservation" groups collaborating in the destruction of marine life. But in my view the worst of all is @RSPCA_official. It was founded to defend animals. Instead, it endorses mass slaughter by salmon farms.…
.@RSPCA_official was very lucky not to have been featured in Seaspiracy, because its collusion is even more disgraceful than the examples that were highlighted. It "accredits" the slaughter of 200 million salmon a year, without, imo, effective safeguards.
Like many big groups, the RSPCA is way behind its members. Many people who care about the lives of animals have now gone vegan. But the RSPCA, which is meant to be *leading* on animal welfare, instead gives its seal of approval to the killing of animals on an industrial scale.

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,

#seaspiracy... Here goes
Starts with typical marine biologist backstory, top level statistics, blah blah
Initial obsession with plastics, implicates every dead marine mammal as having been caused by plastics

1. I watched #Seaspiracy on Netflix last night. It’s a brilliant expose of the greatest threat to marine life: fishing.
This thread explores why we have so seldom heard the the truth about what’s happening to our oceans.
2. The BBC and other broadcasters have repeatedly failed to tell the truth. Blue Planet II was a massive exercise in misdirection. It misled us about the main reasons for ecological collapse, emphasising entirely trivial issues like plastic straws instead…
3. I don’t believe it set out to deceive us. But Blue Planet II was typical of the BBC’s cowardice and wilful ignorance when it comes to environmental destruction. Almost reflexively, it avoids conflict with powerful economic interests.

I couldn't sleep, opened twitter, saw @BlahaFrancisco shitting on new Netflix doc #Seaspiracy, so popped it on

4:17 minutes in I had to stop and tweet how ridiculous and made up the science in this film is

He's already told us that if we don't save the whales -- by solving plastic pollution -- we will lose the oxygen we breathe

This should sound familiar to everyone in shark world

Two minute exposition on how straw bans will save whales and turtles

296. #SophieJones (2021) A raw and resonant coming of age story about dealing with grief and overcome pain,it feels very personal. The cinematography is gorgeous and visually stunning with excellent performances by the cast especially the lead who is great.Really good. ⭐⭐⭐1/2 ImageImageImageImage
296. #Moxie (2021) A fun and entertaining coming of age movie that might be a bit flawed, but the performances by the cast is good and it is a bit long however it deals with a lot of important issues and it have a really powerful scene at the end, the direction is strong. ⭐⭐⭐ ImageImageImageImage
297. #TheHitchHiker (1953) A swift thrilling noir film that is visually pleasing with great direction, it is very tense,suspensful and fast paced (yeah it's only 70 min)anchored by a trio of great performances by the cast. The story might not fully fleshed but still fun. ⭐⭐⭐⭐ ImageImageImageImage
