Happy that my research on how professional norms of sustainability #expertise are deliberated in online forums is finally published in a wonderful new edited volume by @routledgebooks! Email me if you'd like a PDF copy. 1/start
2. Basically, I examined how sustainability practitioners talk about disciplinary expertise and knowledge among themselves -- or, their #vernacularrhetoric -- in an online discussion thread posted by a @LinkedIn public group.
3. My underlying argument is that professional networking sites like @LinkedIn @Meetup & @XING_de are not just resources for practitioners to network for job opportunities, but also spaces where disciplinary expertise -- basically, what counts as worth knowing -- are deliberated!

From #Mayfair to #Battersea, #Hackney to #Greenwich, we're looking for companies, mosques, synagogues, churches, and anyone with big hearts & sustainability goals to collect bikes for refugees with us.
Info: thebikeproject.co.uk/pages/set-up-a…
#RefugeesWelcome #cycling #sustainability #CSR
It is really easy to become a donation point. You need a tiny bit of space and we'll do the rest -- pick them up, fix them up, and pair them with a refugee or asylum seeker to help them get around their new city and access vital services.
We've partnered with @ecargobikes, @weareberyl, @SpireCafe, @JRSUK and many many others - let us know if you'd like to chat with any of our partners to find out how easy it is!

1/ Organisations need generalist advisers who are not attached to their experience and expertise. Fresh eyes + deep understanding of individuals across cultural divides will mark emerging consulting paradigms. This will put pressure on business schools.
2/ In the words of @davidsrose "All companies designed to succeed in the 20th century are doomed to fail in the 21st century."

Several reasons -

The new world is digital. The new generation is digital. Change is on an accelerating curve. Learning is not. #futureofwork
@davidsrose 3/ Companies are led by people trained on industrial age methods by industrial age academics in industrial age institutions. Leadership is about growing existing portfolios by scaling. #Innovation means disrupting existing mindsets and methods. This is new. #futureofwork

Brought this article by @hillaryrosner in @NatGeoMag w/ me to Surat Thani, Thailand as I pondered this quote: “Palm oil is unavoidable. Can it be sustainable?” Agree? Read. Ponder & Follow this thread for more…

The link: on.natgeo.com/2E8fwW8

#SDGs #Sustainability #PalmOil
In case you ever wondered where #palmoil comes from. Have a look at the #palm oil fruit here. From my visit to Surat Thani, Thailand to learn more about #sustainability in this industry. Read more here via @hillaryrosner on.natgeo.com/2E8fwW8
DYK: The oil palm tree—Elaeis guineensis—is not native to Asia but comes from West & central Africa. At the heart of the “sustainable #palmoil” debate though are #Indonesia & #Malaysia, which account for 85% of all production. 📷: young #palm in Thailand

1) Updated Executive Summary numbers from my #bitcoin cost & #sustainability model

Highlights:
- Avg Cost to Mine: $3,750 (ranging from $3000 to $4000)
- Total CO2e: 0.034Gt (0.06% of global)
- Total Energy: 63TWh/yr (0.04% of global)

2) Changes in #Bitcoin #mining metrics
3) Major Assumption Changes:

- Since my previous report demonstrated that “$/GH is king” due to low electricity prices amongst most large miners, the Antminer T15 will be taken as the proxy benchmark #bitcoin ASIC for this update

To kick off #Sustainuary then, let's talk about #dairy alternatives like nut juice, oat juice and various other #plantbased drinks. We've never had more choice, but what are the actual #sustainability credentials of these products vs animal milk? #Veganuary
#Dairy production has received widespread criticism for its #carbonfootprint .
The average UK dairy system produces around 1.2Kg Co2eq. per Kg milk . However this varies hugely, mainly depending on the cows' diets and how much fertiliser is used on the pasture. #sustainuary
The most #sustainable #dairy farms in the UK can have carbon footprints as low as 0.5 KgCO2 eq. per Kg milk produced, which are comparable to many dairy alternatives. #Sustainuary #Veganuary

Let's have our weekly #GlobalEChats and discuss the topic of #foodtech #delivery.

As #food is a necessity, it is natural that #entrepreneurs are lured into venturing in the F&B business. What more with #IR40, we often think of taking business one step ahead: by involving tech!
Now let's break this down into two types of niche within #fooddelivery and #fnb industry.

1. You own the restaurant and you are providing an additional delivery #service.

2. You don't own any restaurant and you are merely the delivery service.

The two are very different!
To help put points into perspective:

#1 is a classic example of pizza stores such as @DominosMY. Any #eatery can set up its own delivery system.

#2 is a rather new invention. Such examples would be @foodpanda_my and @GrabMY's GrabFood service!

Next panel @sciencepolicy #CSPC2018 on international science and Canada, global agenda for 2030. Gordon McBean starts us off with background on international consortia and meetings on this important topic. Need to bring stakeholders together for a global program
#CSPC2018 @wwatsonwright @OceanFrontier stresses there is only one ocean, where distinct bodies are connected. If we treat them separately and let borders define policy, we limit the impact our policies can have

Steeling myself with a strong coffee to sit down and read major new report on avoiding dangerous #climatechange (@IPCC_CH #SR15, available here: ipcc.ch/report/sr15/). My takes to follow (1/n)
As always, the #peerreview effort by @IPCC_CH is Herculean. A couple hundred volunteer scientists read & cited 6,000+ studies to support conclusions w/ evidence. Responded to 42,001 comments in 3 rounds of review. The most robust process there is to establish scientific consensus
Now, this #SR15 report title is descriptive, but doesn't exactly roll off the tongue...

Kicking off #WalkBikePlaces with an infrastructure tour on @BlueBikesNOLA. Several under way now; I'm on the one that looks at public art, placemaking. #bikeNOLA
First stop: Jackson Square, National Historic Site, named for Andrew J. Led battle that saved NOLA in 1812 but owned enslaved people. Should his statue come down? #WalkBikePlaces
Beautiful murals! Families of Plessy and Ferguson reconciled with art in celebration. Studio BE right across the street--big studio space in covered warehouse. @BlueBikesNOLA station right here at park.

The western US has been on fire for weeks, with unbreathable air confining people to their homes and keeping some from getting out on a bike. In other parts of the world it’s straight-up car pollution doing the same. We’re going to CLEAR THE AIR with #bikeschool #bikes4climate.
We’re heading toward Global #ClimateAction Week so you’ll see that hashtag + #bikes4climate tonight along with #bikeschool.
My hot take: Too many discussions under headlines with words like #sustainability or #climate or #green ignore bikes as clean transport.
****Q1: How have forest fires, pollution, other air quality issues affected your bicycling? Fun fact (h/t @andrealearned): Bikes invented as tool due to volcano eruption pollution. See buff.ly/2LEP6vi by @lloydalter. #bikeschool #bikes4climate #ClimateAction #bikehistory

Just got to Davos. Ready to fill the leadership vacuum with big ideas. My focus will be on privilege and women. Only going to #womanels #methree. Also, my alligator-skin boots got snow on them, anyone have a blow drier or an FT I can use to dry them off?
Thread 1/n: Small ideas feel big when I'm in my Gulfstream, so here it goes: We have to innovate on innovation. The 7th industrial revolution disrupts AND displaces. Artificial intelligence and blockchain can only solve resurgent populism with #compassion.
2/n We elites are critical to making this debate glocalized. Thought leadership also involves thought stewardship. Communities form the core of our economies. Blue collar workers must be re-conceived as #newcollar workers. Code is key.
