For International #WorldHeritageDay, a thread about the threat of climate change to these incredible places. Starting off at the Heart of Neolithic #Orkney World Heritage site in #Scotland at one of the world's oldest stone circles, #StonesOfStenness.
Skara Brae at the edge of Skaill Bay on Mainland, Orkney is, one of the best preserved Stone Age villages in Europe but is increasingly under threat from coastal erosion and worsening storms, & the Ring of Brodgar is vulnerable to extreme rainfall.
You can read the Climate Vulnerability Index (CVI) assessment recently carried out for the #Orkney sites by @UCSUSA, @jcu, @UHIArchaeology, @HistEnvScot, @ICOMOS & @OrkneyCouncil, & @ICOMOS here: historicenvironment.scot/archives-and-r… #CVIheritage

Diary from Italy, 1 April 2020 - on the need for the EU 27 to get their act together before it is too late. Includes English version of @CarloCalenda's letter to @faznet Thread. Full diary: facebook.com/john.mccourt1/…
@IBN_Berlin
Social unrest is growing in #Italy Italy as people are worrying not simply about catching the #coronavirus coronavirus but about running out of food and money particularly in the poorer southern regions of the country.
The 27 countries of the European Union remain split and the European Commission has never seemed less effective. Europe risks a division that will be irreparable. And Italians are rightly exasperated with countries that seem to favour the economic over the human, wealth over life

20 years ago, I was an inveterate traveller, happy to have all my possessions in storage, ready to go anywhere in the world with very little notice.
When 9/11 happened, + planes around the world were grounded, my 1st reaction was selfish: I mourned the fact...
...that I seemed to be about to lose access to the world, and my freedom to travel might be curtailed.
Now in my 50s, with a family, I'm re-experiencing that sense of loss, as #covid19 grounds planes and closes borders.
This weekend, I saw somebody in a park with a cloth bag from a #Dublin bookstore named The Winding Stair, and felt a pang of loss: this shop, unknown to me, was, by the force of things, likely to remain so, for weeks, months, maybe forever...

It's hard to capture the absence of activity. How do you show something that is missing? These wonderful @reuters pictures do just that.

"Restrictions imposed to control the virus — & public panic — have transformed #Italy’s commercial & financial capital in a way some Milanese fear will result in a deep & lasting economic blow."

1/ "Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte this week said the economic blow to Italy could be 'very strong.'”
2/ “'If the virus spreads, and it will spread, I think any local or national politician would have to take very drastic action, and that will virtually halt the economy,' said Roberto Perotti, an economist at #Milan’s Bocconi University, who was #workingfromhome this week."

Venice called itself the Serene Republic, but its sinister institutions provide an unmatched continuity of the most hideous oligarchical rule for more than 15 centuries, from the Roman Empire, through the British Empire until the present.
tarpley.net/online-books/a…
Venice was the centre of efforts to destroy the advanced European civilization of the 11th & 12th centuries & bears a burden of guilt for the ascendancy of the #BlackNobility Guelphs & the black plague.
The Venetians were spies for Ghengis Khan guiding them to sack Baghdad.
Napoleon forced the end of this vile organism during his Italian campaign of 1797, but the cancer had already infected Geneva, Amsterdam, London & elsewhere.
Though the sovereignty of Venice had been extinguished, its methods lived on to the 20th century.
We know it as #Fascism.

This just started off a huge rabbit hole. #Pearson #Bertelsmann #Obama #Vivendi #Bronfman #TimeWarner #BMG #MusicIndustry #Print #NaziPropaganda this is a #DeepState info haven! Just look at the top inv @ Pearson. They hide behind banks & mutual fund fronts. The entire S&P is DS!
Just the top investor is #Dimensional Fund Advisors. This was created by #DavidBooth who had deep ties to #UniversityOfChicago, this is where #Obama taught school. Can you say #DeepState puppet.
#ArnoldSchwarzenegger is a huge investor, which as you know pulls in the Shriver of the #Kennedy family (JFK was her uncle) & #California cesspool which includes #Getty’s, #Newsom, #Pelosi’s, #DAlessandro families I can devote an entire thread to this consortium.
