The value of vegetation

@HeidiCullen shared
RT @pepcanadell: "Changes in land use account for about 10 percent of the amount of CO2 annually emitted into the atmosphere" (the remaining 90% is from the combustion of fossil fuels). Read Julia Pongratz interview by @physorg_com https://t.co/wWqdPwgbfq https://t.co/6zRJ7rj3yF

The day Brazil's voters chose Jair Bolsonaro as their new President wasn't a good day for efforts to mitigate climate change. During the election campaign, the declared populist and would-be strongman vowed to end the "environmental activism" of his predecessors. ...

The climate change policy with the most potential is the most neglected

On Jul 13, 2019
@CDP shared
To maintain warming to 1.5C, we must actively remove carbon from our atmosphere. That’s why both deployment, and innovation are crucial. The public & private sector alike must deploy tech we already have, while funding R&D into new solutions. https://t.co/tGVjn7jPc8

Public clean energy R&D is overlooked and underfunded.

RT @drvox: Earlier this week I posted about "consumption emissions" -- the GHG emissions embodied in the goods & services you consume. Here's a great post on the @KleinmanEnergy blog on the same subject, with a hyper-local focus. https://t.co/jmlOOaxYo5
Open

Typically, we measure emissions that occur within a geographic boundary. But consumption-based accounting tells a different story: that affluent communities depend heavily on polluting activity that occurs elsewhere.

Hundreds of Colombia’s small coffee growers have stopped cultivating the bean in the face of low prices and reduced harvests linked to a shifting climate. As farmers struggle, the nation’s scientists are seeking to develop new varieties that will flourish in a changing environment.
