Engineering a City #thread
Having spent my entire childhood in #Kochi (#Cochin ), it feels criminal to not know the story of how the city came to be the #metropolis it is today. Putting together a thread to trace the journey of the city which has been so endearingly mine (1)
Part 1: The #Malabar Mud-Banks
The story of Cochin is not just about how an engineering marvel can change social fabric, but also of many tenets of #British #Colonialism in India which is often taken for granted, passed off lazily as exploitation, missing nuance (2)
As with any coastal town, the cultural and economic history of Kochi is intertwined with maritime trade routes since the time of the Early Romans and Arabs. Thanks to the #biennale , most of us would now be familiar with the term #Muzuris (3)

#tankers #shipping @hkuppy

Today we are calling on @transportgovuk to bring International #Aviation and #Shipping emissions formally within the UK’s #NetZero target.

It will have the very important effect of establishing a comprehensive legal framework for reducing UK emissions for the first time.
We recommend that the aviation and shipping sectors should themselves reach #NetZero, requiring a major effort from Government and industry. These are international challenges, requiring an international response, but bringing them into the UK target will drive the pace of change
#Shipping emissions can be reduced to zero or near zero through the use of alternative fuels. We have considered the use of hydrogen and ammonia for example.
