Twitter Web App : Why is there a #ProductionGap? It's because few governments — if any — have evaluated how their fossil fuel production plans are aligned or misaligned with their climate mitigation commitments and ambitions. Read our 2020 report at productiongap.org twitter.com/UNEP/status/13…

Twitter Web App : Mind the #ProductionGap: Prompted by our 2020 report, a coalition of NGOs has called on the UK prime minister to “show climate leadership” by announcing the UK would abandon its policy of maximising the economic recovery of its oil and gas reserves. theguardian.com/environment/20…

Twitter Web App : There is no solution to the climate crisis that does not involve confronting the supply of fossil fuels. Whatever we extract will almost certainly be burnt so we need to turn our attention to how we wind down extraction. Some thoughts about today’s UN Environment Programme's #ProductionGap Report.

Twitter Web App : Even as countries pledge to decrease greenhouse gas *emissions*, they plan to increase fossil fuel *production* by 2% per year.

Its a contradiction in terms, shows a major new #ProductionGap report by SEI Climate, UN Environment Programme, et al. today.

Twitter Web App : New US survey shows how fossil fuel propaganda has successfully rebranded methane as natural gas.

Americans associate methane with global warming but natural gas with clean energy. The word natural substantially increases respondents positive feelings about methane.

Twitter Web App : 'Greentrolling' is Mary Annaïse Heglar's "maniacal" method of calling out Big Oil's climate propaganda, & as I told grist's Kate Yoder, it's a powerful form of digital activism for "debunking disinformation, unmasking systems of power, & driving media scrutiny".grist.org/energy/greentr…

Twitter Web App : Shell 📢: IVE MADE THE FUTURE FAR CLEANER & FAR BETTER FOR OUR CHILDREN.

Low-carbon investments of fossil fuel companies: iamrenew.com/green-energy/t…

Twitter Web App : The temerity & hubris with which Shell is propagandising millions of Brits watching the #GBBO each week is astonishing.

IVE MADE THE FUTURE FAR CLEANER & FAR BETTER FOR OUR CHILDREN says the company that spent 98.7% of its 2010-18 budget producing global heating fossil fuels.

Twitter Web App : UK gov't ministers had *9 times* more meetings with fossil fuel firms than renewable energy ones in April-June (149 vs 17).

Part & parcel, as I told DeSmog UK, of how Big Oil is "successfully exploiting the pandemic to secure taxpayer handouts & bailouts."desmog.co.uk/2020/11/10/bei…

iPhone : They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: 
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

iPhone : Phwoar!

[News Corp] and its friends...like Trump have turned this issue of physics into an issue of values or identity. Saying you believe or disbelieve in global warming is like saying you believe or disbelieve in gravity...And we are paying the price.
