    1. Die US-Regierung erlaubt Chevron, in zusätzliche Ölförderungen in Venezuela zu investieren. Die Entscheidung ist Teil einer auch geopolitsch motivierten beginnenden Umorientierung der amerikanischen Venezuela-Politik. Anfallende Lizenzgebühren müssen zur Tilgung von venezolanischen Regierungsschulden verwendet werden. Eine Aufhebung der bestehenden Sanktionen könnte auch zu Investitionen aus anderen Ländern in die venezolanische Fossilindustrie führen.

    1. Der deutsche Finanzminister Lindner weil Übergewinne von fossilen Energieunternehmen nur mit dem von der EU geforderten Minimum besteuern. Die Abschöpfung bei Strom und damit bei erneuerbaren Energien ist wesentlich höher.

    1. Diskussionen innerhalb der französischen Grünen könnten auf eine Neugründung hinauslaufen. Dabei spielt der Begriff einer ökologischen Klasse eine wichtige Rolle, der auf das Buch von Latour und Schulz zurückgehen dürfte. Eine Stellungnahme stellt Degrowth, die decroissance in den Mittelpunkt.

    1. Aufschlussreiches Interview mit Alessandro Bratti, der die italienische Behörde leitet, die für die Administration des Po verantwortlich ist. Er war vorher Vizepräsident der europäischen Umweltbehörde. Der Fluss ist von existenzieller Bedeutung für ein großes Gebiet, in den Millionen von Klimanotstand bedroht sind. Die Behörde wird personell und organisatorisch verstärkt. Der Fluss wird teilweise renaturiert. Zu den Instrumenten der Klima-Anpassung gehören Verträge mit den Fluss, der damit zu einem politischen und rechtlichen Akteur wird.

    1. Ausführlicher Überblick zu den erwarteten Klimaveränderungen auf kroatischem Staatsgebiet bis 2040, mit einem Ausblick auf 2070. Berücksichtigt vor allem RCP4.5, aber auch RCP8.5. Macht (bei sehr oberflächlichem Durchsehen mit mangelnden Sprachkenntnissen) an manchen Stellen einen etwas verharmlosenden Eindruck.

    1. he war in Ukraine remains a major variable in the worldwide supply outlook since Russia normally supplies one of every 10 barrels of the global 100-million-barrel-a-day market

      Umfang des Ölmärkte: 100 Mill. Barrel am Tag.

      Russischer Anteil: 10%

      Verbrauch der USA: Ca ein Drittel

    1. Russian oil production has fallen by less than 3% since the invasion of Ukraine, with a swathe of western energy sanctions having only a “limited” effect, the International Energy Agency has found.
    1. Der Abzweig in die EU heißt Trans-Adria-Pipeline und wurde Ende 2020 in Betrieb genommen. Dem aserbaidschanischen Energieexperten Gubad Ibadoghlu zufolge liegt deren Kapazität derzeit bei zehn Milliarden Kubikmeter Gas pro Jahr und kann fpr die angestrebten 20 Milliarden Kubikmeter ausgebaut werden.
    1. Gas und Öl aus Russland haben die deutsche Wirtschaft, die treibende Kraft der EU, angekurbelt, die ihrerseits zu einem wesentlichen Bestandteil des gesamten Weltmarkts geworden ist.

      Diese Abhängigkeit der deutschen Wirtschaft ist ein entscheidender Punkt, siehe auch den Bericht in Libération über die befürchtete Krise in Deutschland. @bourdoiseauPourAllemagneDopee2022

    1. We discussed it extensively in our bilateral meeting. Today, with our MoU, we are laying the ground for solid cooperation in that area. So gradually, Azerbaijan will evolve from being a fossil fuel supplier to becoming a very reliable and prominent renewable energy partner to the European Union.

      Charakteristisch ist, dass diese Zusammenarbeit nicht quantifiziert wird. Umgekehrt wäre ein fester Fahrplan für Erneuerbare sinnvoll gewesen, mit eventuell provisorischen Erdgaslierferungen als Überbrückungsmaßnahme.

    1. Every morning now brought its regular duties—shops were to be visited; some new part of the town to be looked at; and the pump-room to be attended, where they paraded up and down for an hour, looking at everybody and speaking to no one.

      For a comparative analysis of Northanger Abbey's and Pride and Prejudice's depictions of the city in relation to contemporary ideas of the city "as moral pollution," see Celia Eason's essay, "Austen’s Urban Redemption: Rejecting Richardson’s View of the City." Easton shows us how characters like Isabella Thorpe and Mr. Bennet defy contemporary ideas that women were helpless in the city or that remaining ignorant of the city proved morally useful, respectively. As Catherine's character will prove, knowing how to navigate the city and its traps is essential for any young woman.

    1. Wanta JampijinpaPatrick, a Warlpiri Elder, teaches that north corresponds to ‘Law’,south to ‘ceremony’, west to ‘language’ and east to ‘skin’. ‘Country’lies at the intersection of these directions, at the centre of thecompass: Westerners conceptualise it as ‘here’.

      In Warlpiri, the cardinal directions of north, south, east and west associatively correspond with the ideas of "Law", "ceremony", "skin", and "language" respectively. The idea of "Country" lies at the center of these directions in a space that Westerners would describe as "here".

      This directional set up underlines the value of each of the related concepts and provides pride of place to "Country" and one's being "in Country".


      Compare these with the Japanese pattern of こ (ko), そ (so), あ (a), ど (do) which describe a location with respect to the speaker.


      Western readers should notice here, that the author centers the name and position of the origin of this knowledge at the start of the sentence. While it is associated with him, it is also certainly associated with all his preceding ancestors and Elders who passed this information down.

      One might suspect that this practice isn't as common with base-level cultural knowledge, but that it becomes more important at succeeding levels of intimate area-based restricted knowledge. Placing the origin of the knowledge here at a more basic level of knowledge may help to instruct Western readers slowly and more surely understand how this foreign culture works.

      How closely does this practice generally look like the Western idea of citing one's sources which only evolved slowly over history and became more common with the flood of information in the 1500s?

    1. um kevin anderson 00:12:43 if you can talk more about this issue both you and george assad raymond and so many other climate activists talking about this issue of wealth 00:12:55 you say per capita is a flawed metric as most polluting industries have been moved to developing nations so it's not reflective of the rich nation's emissions take all of this on 00:13:09 yeah i mean that's a really key issue and i think if i focus in here on the uk where i know it's a place obviously i know much better that what we've done in the uk we've closed down a lot of our industry and then we import the manufactured goods from elsewhere in the 00:13:22 world and then we turn around to those parts of the world and then we blame them for the emissions in manufacturing the goods that we are enjoying and that's everything from our electronic goods to parts for our cars as our clothes so you know the uk is 00:13:35 effectively moved to a bar and banking culture and and and offshore virtually everything else and so we when we looking at our total amount of emissions we have to take account of the carbon footprint of our lifestyles and that 00:13:47 does include the emissions that we associated with things that we import and export i mean you take that into account you tend to find that most wealthy countries have a much larger carbon footprint than when you just look at the energy they use within their 00:14:00 boundaries and i think it's really key again when we think about these issues of equity we we that we take this what's often referred to as a consumption-based accounting method we take that into account because it is unfair to be 00:14:12 penalizing poor parts of the world for them making things to help us have a better quality of life over here and when we do that then the challenges get even more striking in terms of what we have to do and it also also brings out 00:14:25 even further the issues of equity the disparity between the richer parts of the world and the poorer parts of the world but i also think on the equity point it's really worth bringing out that it's not as if everyone in the uk is even 00:14:37 there isn't just one public in the uk there are multiple publics there were those of us who are the wealthy ones in our own country that are responsible for the lion's share of missions within the uk that will be true chain for the u.s for germany for japan australia and so 00:14:50 within all of our countries there are large swathes of the country who are the average and below average consumers and for them the response to climate change is very different from those of us who are in our own countries are responsible for the lion's share of 00:15:03 emissions so i think we have to differentiate not just between countries but even within our countries and my concern there is that who are the people that frame the climate dubai debate they're the climate scientists and the academics they're the 00:15:14 entrepreneurs the business leaders the journalists the barristers they're all the people that are in the very high emitting category so we frame the debate and we never ever frame the debate with equity at its core and with regardless 00:15:26 of our maths or our moral sorry regardless of our moral position the maths tell us if we are to deliver on the commitments then equity has to be a key part of our responses but we never talk about that because we are in that 00:15:38 high emitting group

      Kevin points out why a CONSUMPTION-BASED METRIC is more accurate than PER CAPITA metric, as the PER CAPITA metric does not include the embodied carbon emissions of the manufactured goods that consumers purchase. Per Capita metric reflects that the manufacture is responsible, not the consumer, an inaccurate moral indication.

      We have also noticed that wealthy and poor exist in ALL countries of the world and the more nuanced terminology we employ based on a Country-Wealth Sector classification matrix as described here:

      https://medium.com/@gien_SRG/more-nuanced-terminology-for-post-colonialist-inequality-af2f1609635c

      Using this new terminology, Monbiot and Anderson are referring to the North-North and South-North class as all the elites of the world has having the highest personal carbon footprint whilst the North-South and South-South class are the victims.

    1. I would have seen memory palaces as a simplified version of songlines, but my Indigenous colleague has now pointed out that sometimes songlines are taught before the person goes on Country - that’s how they navigated: teach the songlines and you can then travel knowing where food sources and waterholes are. So my theory is falling down already. But the songline always involves movement (not always dance), song, narrative and a mesh of genres of information.

      Verification of the anecdotal evidence I mentioned before. Teaching of songlines without actually being on Country.

    1. Cleophas Pesant is the son of Thadee Pesant also known as the blacksmith, was already in light-coloured summer garments, and sported an American coat with broad padded shoulders. Beside him Egide Simard, and others who had come a long road by sleigh, fastened their long fur coats as they left the church, drawing them in at the waist with scarlet sashes. The young folk of the village, very smart in coats with otter collars, gave deferential greeting to old Nazaire Larouche; a tall man with gray hair and huge bony shoulders who had in no wise altered for the mass his everyday garb: short jacket of brown cloth lined with sheepskin, patched trousers, and thick woollen socks under moose-hide moccasins. Cleophas Pesant waited for Louisa Tremblay who was alone, and they went off together along the wooden sidewalk in the direction of the house. Samuel Chapdelaine and Maria had gone but a little way when a young man halted them. Samuel Chapdelaine and Maria were to dine with their relative Azalma Larouche. There was nothing to look at; in the settlements new houses and barns might go up from year to year, or be deserted and tumble into ruin; but the life of the woods is so unhurried that one must needs have more than the patience of a human being to await and mark its advance. Telesphore busied himself with the dog-harness and made believe not to hear.

    1. Generally, such legislations apply to any service targeting residents of the region, which effectively means that they may apply to your business whether it’s located in the region or not
    2. These rules usually apply to any company selling to EU residents but may vary for international sellers on a case-by-case basis. It is worth noting, however, that in recent cases US courts have chosen to uphold the applicable EU law.
