Auftaktkundgebung: Was steht im 6. Sachstandsbericht?
 
Hoppla.
Zu viel CO2 in der Atmosphäre kann zum großen Artensterben führen.
Wenn wir das nur früher gewusst hätten!!1!!

Ich bin es so leid, dass mein diesbezüglicher Pessimismus immer wieder bestätigt wird.
We're all fucked...
'Bei weiter steigenden Treibhausgas-Emissionen ist die Welt nur noch drei Jahre davon entfernt, selbst das Zwei-Grad-Klimaziel zu verspielen. Diese Gefahr sieht der Weltklimarat laut einem durchgesickerten Berichtsentwurf.'

I’m tired of watching the #world end. It’s time to get radical on the #climate #crisis

Every morning I wake up and watch the world end. I’m aware this seems melodramatic. However, it’s the cold, hard truth. We use the phrases 'climate crisis' and 'climate emergency' not because we wish to ignite fear, but because they are accurate.
...
Too often, the steps we must take to curb the climate crisis are dismissed as too radical, too costly, too inconvenient. Compared to what? Is making ecocide an international #crime more radical than allowing the ocean to catch fire because it’s profitable for Big #Oil? Is stopping fossil fuel subsidies more radical than logging 2,000-year-old cedars on Vancouver Island? Is investing in a just transition to a sustainable economy for all workers more radical than bulldozing sacred sites and forcing oil pipelines through Indigenous burial grounds at gunpoint?

#Fuck! More than 60 mm rain today, half of the garden of the house where I'm living inundated up to 30 cm, water in the basement, we poured it out with buckets and pushed it from the ground with snow shovels. Working like dogs for 2 hours, now it is raining lesser and water is falling...but more rain promised tonight and tomorrow. Worst rain for 50 years or so.

There is no #climate change and it is not man made, remember!

Super #terraX #Doku zum #Artensterben und der menschengemachten Zerstörung der #Biodiversität im zeitgeschichtlichen Kontext der Entstehung der #Erde.

In den letzten drei Katastrophen, die unser Planet vor dem Erscheinen des Menschen hatte, war das "natürliche" Artensterben wesentlich langsamer. " [Dabei]sterben aktuell hundert Mal mehr Arten aus als bei einer natürlichen, evolutionsbedingten Rate zu erwarten wäre."

Bemerkenswert hierbei:
Die Herstellung von #Rindfleisch, #Kakao, #Palmöl und #Kaffee wurden in einer kürzlichen Studie als die Hauptverursacher des Artensterbens ausgemacht.

Today the Fossil free politics campaign and the European Network of Corporate Observatories are publishing their new investigation ‘Hijacking the recovery through #hydrogen: how #fossil fuel lobbying is siphoning #Covid recovery funds’ (also on the #ENCO website here). The report reveals how the fossil fuel industry captured #EU recovery funds through fierce lobbying in #Italy, #France, #Portugal and the Spanish State, as well as the EU level.

Please help spread the word :

EU Covid-19 recovery funds are supposed to drive the ‘green transition’ and move us beyond fossil fuels – but industry lobbying at both national and EU level has ensured #oil and #gas firms and utilities remain some of the biggest beneficiaries in Italy, the Spanish State, Portugal and France.

The European Commission has said it wanted to avoid giving billions in bailouts to the fossil fuel industry. Despite sending mixed signals, it has tried to exclude direct financing for fossil fuel projects. However, the hugely outsized role for #hydrogen and renewable gases in national recovery plans has thrown a lifeline to the fossil fuel firms involved, as well as their main product: fossil gas.

At least €8.3 billion is available for hydrogen and renewable gas projects across the four countries, thanks to a concerted lobbying effort by the fossil fuels industry including a prolific number of lobby meetings, high-profile events with decision makers and actually being invited to draft - and implement - national recovery plans. Not only does it hand public money to an industry notorious for trying to block and delay #climate action, but an over-emphasis on hydrogen could lock Europe into decades of fossil fuels.

As the report shows, industry has been aggressively lobbying at the national and EU level not just for ‘green’ hydrogen and #biomethane but also for ‘blue’ hydrogen and #CCS. And despite the Commission appearing to exclude them from EU recovery funds, there are still other European and domestic funds available to support these fossil fuel projects. Expect lobbying at the national level to intensify, with recovery funds being released by the EU from the second half of July.

The only path to a fossil-free recovery that prioritises social and environmental justice, rather than pouring more public funds into polluting corporations’ pockets, is to cut the fossil fuel industry out of public decision-making processes at the national, EU and international level, similar to existing restrictions on the tobacco industry.

The report also marks the launch of the ENCO ‘Recovery Watch’ project, investigating how big business is influencing recovery plans at national and EU level and is seeking to capture the recovery funds for corporate interests.
 
Today, 50 groups from across Europe are releasing a documentary video about a fight over a controversial gas #fracking project, which has until now received little attention.

In the North-East of #Slovenia, close to the border with #Hungary and #Croatia, a UK company, Ascent Resources, wants to frack for gas. The local community is opposed to the project and due to its potential negative effects on the environment. Slovenia’s environmental agency has demanded an environmental impact assessment from the company.

Now, Ascent Resources is threatening to sue Slovenia under the Energy Charter Treaty ( #ECT ), seeking €120 million in compensation for lost future profits from the project (for which it claims to have spent €50 million). It argues that the demand for an environmental impact assessment is “arbitrary and unreasonable” and resulted “in a significant loss” of its revenues. The company has just secured funding for the legal costs of the case, so, it could be filed any moment.

Together with the Slovenian Foundation for Sustainable Development, Umanotera, Corporate Europe Observatory visited the local community, spoke to residents, journalists and anti-fracking activists. Our video brings their voices and this little-known attack on Slovenia’s environmental rules to a wider audience. It also sounds alarm bells on the ECT, which protects investments in climate-wrecking #fossil fuel projects, calling on governments to leave the anti- #climate agreement.

We would appreciate if you could share this message and the video in your networks, particularly amongst anti-fracking and anti- #gas activists who might not yet have the ECT/ISDS and the power it gives the fracking industry on their radar.

Retweeting of the short version of the video would also be much appreciated:

+++ Aufruf Anti-Gas-Camp, 18.-22. August +++

English below

Es klingt wie ein schlechter Witz: Die #Bundesregierung redet von #Klimaneutralität, gleichzeitig fördert sie den Bau von neuen Erdgaskraftwerken. Doch #Erdgas ist genau wie #Kohle ein fossiler #Klimakiller! Schlimmer noch: #Methan ist noch klimawirksamer als CO2 und verschärft die #Klimakrise massiv. Statt den Erdgasausbau mit Milliarden zu subventionieren, müssen wir jetzt aus der Erdgasnutzung aussteigen und die bestehende Gasinfrastruktur zurückbauen. Hierfür brauchen wir Euch!

Um bundesweit gegen den Erdgasausbau zu mobilisieren, gehen wir mit Euch an den Ort, an dem eines der größten Erdgaskraftwerke Deutschlands neu gebaut wird: Die Stadt #Herne im #Ruhrgebiet. In Herne soll ein neues Erdgaskraftwerk das Kohlekraftwerk ersetzen. Damit wird auf Jahrzehnte hinweg weiter fossiler Strom ins Netz und fossile Wärme in die Fernwärmetrasse eingespeist. Die Chance auf eine nachhaltige #Wärmewende zur Versorgung des Ruhrgebiets wird damit auf absehbare Zeit verspielt.

Vom 18.-22. August wollen wir deshalb hier unsere Zelte aufschlagen. Wir schaffen einen Ort der Vernetzung, des Austauschs und der Auseinandersetzung mit dem Thema Erdgas. Dabei stehen wir für einen bewussten Umgang miteinander und mit der #Natur ein. Gleichzeitig wollen wir einen Ausgangspunkt für widerständige Praxis und Aktionen bieten. Lasst uns den Widerstand gegen Erdgaskraftwerke sichtbar machen! Lasst uns gemeinsam Teil einer globalen Anti-Gas Bewegung werden!

+++ Auf dem Camp ist uns ein achtsamer Umgang miteinander sowie ein Hygienekonzept wichtig, um das Camp zu einem möglichst sicheren Ort zu machen. +++

Wofür steht #GasExit?
GasExit tritt ein für einen sofortigen Erdgasausstieg, für ein Ende der fossilen Subventionen und eine nachhaltige und sozial gerechte Wärmewende. Fossile Energieträger müssen im Boden bleiben! Wir sind basisdemokratisch organisiert und Teil einer lebendigen und aktiven #Klimagerechtigkeits­bewegung, die die Kämpfe um #Ressourcenschutz, Klimagerechtigkeit, #Energiesouveränität und #Demokratie verbindet.

Teilt gerne diesen Aufruf!

Solidarische Grüße

GasExit

Und schon mal vormerken, zum Mitplanen und Einsteigen: das nächste Bündnistreffen findet vom 18.-20. Juni statt, Ihr seid herzlich eingeladen!

+++ Call Anti-Gas Camp, August 18-22 +++

It sounds like a bad joke: The German government talks about #climate neutrality and at the same time it promotes the construction of new fossil gas power plants. But natural #gas, just like #coal, is a fossil climate killer! Worse still, #methane has an even greater impact on the climate than #CO2 and is massively exacerbating the climate crisis. Instead of subsidizing the expansion of natural gas with billions of euros, we must now phase out the use of natural gas and dismantle the existing gas infrastructure. And we need your help!

In order to mobilize nationwide against natural gas expansion, we will go with you to the place where one of the largest natural gas power plants in #Germany is being built: The city of Herne in the Ruhr area. In Herne, a new natural gas power plant will to replace the coal-fired power plant. This means that fossil electricity will continue to be fed into the grid and fossil heat into the district heating network for decades to come. The opportunity for a change to provide the Ruhr region with sustainable heating will thus be squandered for the foreseeable future.

From August 18-22, we therefore want to set up our tents here. We will create a place for networking, exchange and discussion on the topic of natural gas. We stand up for a conscious interaction with each other and with #nature. At the same time, we want to offer a starting point for resistant practice and actions. Let us make the resistance against natural gas power plants visible! Let's become part of a global anti-gas movement together!

+++ At the camp, it is important to us to treat each other with respect and to have a hygiene concept in order to make the camp as safe a place as possible. +++

What does GasExit stand for?

GasExit stands for an immediate phase-out of natural gas, an end to fossil fuel subsidies and a sustainable and socially just heat transition. Fossil fuels must stay in the ground! We are grassroots organized and part of a vibrant and active climate justice movement that connects the struggles for resource conservation, climate justice, energy sovereignty and #democracy.

Feel free to share this call!

Solidarity greetings

GasExit

And note in advance, to plan and join in: the next alliance meeting will take place from June 18-20, you are cordially invited!
 
@moagee I agree, I would love to see more transparency, too. In my opinion this is the most beneficial part of a Emission Trading System (ETS): to have some quantitative numbers. This creates transparency and competition. But to really cut emissions, the #CO2 price has to be high enough to show some effect and this is the critical part where I see EU comissions responsibility. Additional to political change, we need #climate action, too. What I mean by this: Greenpeace, GreenWebFoundation, Greenfediverse, You, and everyone else. It should be clear that not opening non-green webpages can make a difference.

Those are just some thoughts. Other than this, there is currently nothing on my mind which could help you or the #greenFediverse.

PS last year, I read a book about Emission Trade System and how it works e.g. in Asia. Since then, I like the system in general. But the author was pretty stupid in many other terms, hence I cannot recommend this book :D
