“Either we kill this treaty, or the treaty will kill us!”

"Put it simple, this treaty is a major threat to the EU energy sovereignty, #GreenDeal, and #ClimateJustice goals. This timely comic is of high importance to ensure the French Presidency will end the participation of EU countries to this ecocide treaty.” @ysaheb #ExitECT #NoECT Image
"The Energy Charter Treaty is the arguably the largest and most arcane obstacle to climate action. This comic will help you figure out what is going on through thoroughly researched cases. Read, share and convince your politicians to stop the ECT!" @JKSteinberger #ExitECT Image
"This is the biggest threat to climate policy around the world, and most people don’t even know this shadowy, quasi-legal system exists, let alone how it works. If we have any hope of disarming it, we need folks to be aware of what’s happening!” @amywestervelt #StopISDS #ExitECT Image
🔥💀Dawn Of The ECT 💀🔥 the Comic Book celinekeller.com/dawn-of-the-ect would not have been possible without the work of so many before me. THANK YOU! Next tweet I will share a couple big investigations I read and relied on heavily. #EndFossilFuelProtection #StopISDS #ExitECT Image
What did it take to get a compliment from Margaret Thatcher?
Ruud “Shock” Lubbers the mastermind behind the Energy Charter Treaty knew.

#ExitECT #StopISDS #EndFossilFuelProtection Image
“Lubbers Plan” was conceived at the end of the cold war. When it was realized as the #ECT it had 3 objectives. If they had called it “Ruud Shock” Disaster Plan maybe we wouldn’t be stuck in such a mess now?

The ”modernisation“ process of the Energy Charter Treaty just keeps this toxic treaty alive! It has been going on and failing for ages. #ExitECT #StopISDS Modernisation of the #ECT is a Global Tragedy at a High Cost for Taxpayers @ysaheb tinyurl.com/26zuzyub

"Modernisation"? After 2 years of dialogue, no deadline has emerged to fix #ECT which allows big emitters to sue states for enacting green reforms. @investigate_eu investigate-europe.eu/en/2021/energy… #ExitECT #EndFossilFuelProtection

In what comes as absolutely NO SURPRISE ecomodernism NGO Replanet (funded by #TESCREAL billionaire who also set up think tank 2 influence EU govs on climate + floods money into green parties and FFF) now runs a campaign attacking Greenpeace on nuclear sporting a young woman 🧵

Rutger Bregman: MacAskill's What WE Owe The Future "will mean for the longtermism movement what Peter Singer's 'Animal Liberation' meant for the animal rights movement."

He concluded that in severe cases, such as for children with spina bifida, it might well be morally wrong not to take a baby’s life. For less serious conditions, such as hemophilia, Singer concluded that the decision as to whether or not to kill the infant should depend on whether it would make the parents happy, and whether they intended to “replace” the child with another, non-disabled one: “When the death of a disabled infant will lead to the birth of another infant with better prospects of a happy life, the total amount of happiness will be greater if the disabled infant is killed.

It was devastating when I read this for the first time but it's on a whole new level in 2023, when the racist and eugenicist effective altruist and often called "most influential philosopher of our time" gets a pass as the one warning about longtermism.

Why would an international left-wing mag in 🇩🇪 link #degrowth to a far-right pleasing neoliberal extremist, who has been attacking degrowth since before it was hip? There's an infowar raging pushing fascism into power. Time to reflect on the “self-destruction” on the left?🧵
Long thread on Jacobin from 2018

Disclaimer: I do believe there exist bad-faith actors but also that if your realm has been targeted by such actors, most people involved are not aware of being part of an operation + have disagreements with each other.

Looking into socialist and degrowth critic Matt Huber, who appeared on the Larouche/MAGAcommunist spacecommune pod and now writes for Unherd, I stumbled on something about Jacobin.

Mind-blowing that SAI #SRM is taken seriously.
As is deabte about geoengineering #CDR #BECCS #DAC #CCS to "save" 1.5 right now, while mitigation hasn't even been tried to take seriously/started to be acted upon. Reading this report takes me forever because it makes me furious.
White man from Global North:
"Perhaps Brazilians watching recent television footage of dying children in Ethiopia and Sudan would be glad to have their own rainfall reduced to 2000 mm a year when necessary." or geoengineering is a humanitarian endeavor! 🤡
But evironmentalists are like the people who hated anaesthetics because they wanted to punish women in childbirth for their wicked things done, which they did not do with men! is apparently also possible as a white man's argument for geoengineering. heraldscotland.com/news/15540151.…

“Solar geoengineering not a humanitarian endeavor: it would constitute massive, potentially dangerous, likely centuries-long intervention into the climate system in order to maintain the economic system at the root of the crisis.”🔥
philanthrocapitalism, ecomodernism, longtermism Image
"There appears to be a faction within climate politics willing to push for extreme..technological interventions to alter the climate system so that we can ultimately change…nothing at all. Or, more accurately, to actively save capitalism from a climate crisis of its own making." Image
Connecting the dots between “cost-effective" IPCC #IAMs and what #SRM has to do with large-scale carbon dioxide removal #CDR. Would add plan includes powering CDR with “green” nuclear to finally make nuclear "economical" 🤡

Curiously many Shellenberger nuclear bros & girls claim nuclear is "super safe" but needs deregulation + often appear on climate denial and far right media outlets that propose climate or "energy realism" which just means let's do all we can to help fossil fuels to stay alive.
Guess why for example jobs in renewables in Germany were lost in the last years?
That's right, because the far right gladly supported astro turf anti-wind campaigns while Germany's leading politicians were catering to the demands of Russia's gas lobby and saving coal jobs. 🤡
