    1. Der Europäische Menschenrechtsgerichtshof hat in seinem Urteil zur Klage der Schweizer Klimaseniorinnen zum ersten Mal ein Menschenrecht auf Klimaschutz festgestellt. Der Spruch des Gerichts, der den Schweizer Staat wegen seiner unzureichenden Klimapolitik verurteilt, dürfte Präzedenzcharakter haben. Zwei weitere Klagen wurden aus formalen Gründen abgewiesen. https://www.handelsblatt.com/politik/deutschland/urteil-europaeischver-gerichtshof-staaten-verletzen-mit-klimapolitik-die-menschenrechte/100029553.html

    1. Der Europäische Gerichtshof für Menschenrechte wird heute Entscheidungen in drei Verfahren bekannt geben, bei denen Bürger:innen die Staaten der EU und andere europäische Staaten wegen Untätigkeit gegen die Klimakrise geklagt haben. Die Entscheidungen haben grundsätzliche Bedeutung für die weitere Klimarrechtsprechung. Die Verfahren hatten Kinder aus Portugal, eine Gruppe Schweizer Seniorinnen und der Bürgermeister einer von Überflutung bedrohten französischen Gemeinde angestrengt.https://www.liberation.fr/environnement/climat/rechauffement-climatique-la-justice-premiers-arrets-avant-la-fin-du-monde-20240409_B5HEUIJY6RHS5OLCPV6MRWL2SY/

    1. and that in turn at least presumesthat I can see where there is something to learn for me.

      This might also be understood in the sense that you can't learn anything from a text that you don't have any expectations for. If you don't have some idea about the conclusions that are going to be drawn, there are no concepts in your mind that I improved changed or created.

    2. AnthonyGiddens for example emphasizes: “Action … does not refer to aseries of discrete acts combined together, but to a continuous flow ofconduct”

      as this applies to the learning action as well, an effective digital learning tool would have to tear down the conceptual walls, that divide the different texts that constitute a university lecture

    1. Emanuel macron und die französische Regierung setzen zum Ersatz fossiler Energien auf modulare Atomreaktoren eines neuen Typs. Eine Studie ergibt nun, dass unter dem Aspekt unter den Aspekten der Kosten der Risiko und der technologischen ausgereiftheit diese Reaktoren die in sie gesetzten Erwartungen nicht erfüllt werden. Sie seien technisch, weniger ausgereift, teurer und unsichere als großreaktoren und könnten nicht mit einer und Sonnenenergie konkreten. Der Autor der Studie Antoine, hält die SMR für ein Versprechen der Nuklearindustrie, um den scheitern älterer Prognosen über die Vorteile der Atomenergie abzulenken.

    1. Zum Hintergrund des Rückzugs großer Investoren der Wall Street aus dem Netzwerk Climate Action 100+. Der Rückzug ist vor allem das Ergebnis zunehmenden Drucks aus der Republikanischen Partei. Er hängt auch damit zusammen, dass Climate Action 100+ in einer Phase 2 von seinen MItgliedern nicht nur Informationen über die Klimafolgen von Investitionen verlangte, sondern Aktionen gegen fossile Emissionen. Dem Journalisten David Gelles zufolge werden die Wall Street-Firmen ihre bisherige, auf Redukton von Emissionen ausgerichtete Linie aber nicht völlig aufgeben. Weitgehend ist und bleibt diese Firmenpolitik aber kosmetisch. https://www.nytimes.com/2024/02/20/climate/wall-street-environmental-pledge-retreat.html

    1. Die großen US-Investmentgesellschaften BlackRock, JPMorgan Chase und State Street haben sich zu großen Teilen aus der Koalition Climate Action 100+ zurückgezogen, in der sich Unternehmen zur Dekarbonisierung verpflichten. Damit werden dieser Koalition 14 Billionen (14.000 Millionen) Dollar entzogen. Republikanische Politiker:innen versuchen schon länger zu verhindern, dass Investionen an Dekarbonisierungszusagen gebunden werden. Die Investment-Gesellschaften argumentieren jetzt, dass Climate Action 100+ nicht nur eine Offenlegung fossiler Investionen, sondern eine Steuerung verlangt habe. https://www.nytimes.com/2024/02/16/business/dealbook/wall-streets-climate-retreat.html

    1. In the neoliberal era, individuals are forced to assume sole responsibility for navigating “every hardship and every difficulty—from poverty to student debt to home eviction to drug addiction.” When the pandemic exacerbated these hardships, it was an uphill battle to build solidarity and convince people to support collective solutions. After a lifetime of being told they were on their own, “a subset of the population” doubled down on individualism. It does not, now, seem surprising to Klein that they essentially said, “Fuck you: we won’t mask or jab

    1. Conclusion: Supporting our hypotheses, we identify a general trend that social marginalization is associated with less system-justification. Those benefitting from the status quo (e.g., healthier, wealthier, less lonely) were more likely to hold system-justifying beliefs. However, some groups who are disadvantaged within the existing system reported higher system-justification—suggesting that system oppression may be a key moderator of the effect of social position on system justification.

      • Question

        • The question here is this:

    1. Untersuchungen zeigen, dass die COP28 mit dem Emissions Peak für Treibhausgase zusammenfallen könnte. Um das 1,5°-Ziel zu erreichen, müssten allerdings die Emissionen bis 2030 um die Hälfte sinken. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/ng-interactive/2023/nov/29/cop28-what-could-climate-conference-achieve

    1. In den Niederlanden wird mit einem Wahlsieg von Parteien gerechnet, die für klimapolitischen Stillstand oder Rückschritt stehen. Die taz beschreibt den Stand der Auseinandersetzungen. Hervorgehoben wird die Stärke der Klimabewegung und die Klimarechtssprechung. Für die meisten Wähler:innen sei Klimapolitik nicht von Verteilungs- und Gerechtigkeitsfragen zu trennen.https://taz.de/Wahlen-in-den-Niederlanden/!5971214/

    1. Wenn die Länder sich an ihre aktuellen Planungen halten, werden die Emissionen bis 2030 im Verhältnis zu 2010 um 9% wachsen. Für das 1,5°-Ziel müssten sie um fast 50% fallen. Der Global stocktake report der UN zeigt vor der COP28, dass die meisten Nationen bei weiten nicht genug Schritte zur Reduktion der Emissionen unternehmen. Zu ähnlichen Ergebnissen war der Bericht "State of Climate Action 2023" gekommen. https://www.nytimes.com/2023/11/14/climate/united-nations-ndc-report-card.html

    1. Ein neuer Bericht der europäischen Kommission sagt aus, dass die EU dreimal so schnell dekarbonisieren muss wie bisher, um das Ziel zu erreichen, die Emissionen bis 2030 um 55% zu reduzieren. Den Zahlen der European Environment Agency zufolge reicht der gegenwärtige Kurs nur für eine Reduzierung um 43%. Ein Haupthindernis sind die enorm hohen fossilen Subventionen.

Einige der Maßnahmen, z.b Förderung der Telearbeit Carsharing und Unterstützung des Leasing von Elektroautos, sind entschiedener als in vielen anderen Staaten. Insgesamt schätzen Fachleute die Maßnahmen aber als zu vorsichtig und zum Teil sogar als Verwässerung früher angekündigter Schritte ein. https://www.liberation.fr/politique/en-direct-suivez-le-conseil-de-planification-ecologique-et-le-discours-demmanuel-macron-20230925_R24KBBQHMFBNJDH2457O7LDNMU/

        • Kevin Anderson makes a good point. He agrees with Johan that a parliament of 8 billion people is not realistic. However, small vociferous and strategic bottom-up groups are needed to prod the top-down actors into action.
        • He makes the observation that the elite actors, the so called "Davos set" have effectively delayed any real climate action for the past 3 decades and if left to them alone, will do the same thing.
        • Anderson hopes for some kind of partnership between top-down and bottom-up actors to provide guidance to leaders to choose the most appropriate policy.

        • this is a necessary outcome of the self-reflective nature of human cognition.
        • English, and many other languages bake the (object, agent, action) triplet into its very structure, making it problematic to use language in the same way after the foundations of cognition have been so deconstructed.
        • Even though strictly speaking the self can be better interpreted as a psycho-social construct and an epiphenomena, it is still very compelling and practical in day-to-day living, including the use of languages which structurally embed the (object, agent, action) triplet.
    1. Recent work has revealed several new and significant aspects of the dynamics of theory change. First, statistical information, information about the probabilistic contingencies between events, plays a particularly important role in theory-formation both in science and in childhood. In the last fifteen years we’ve discovered the power of early statistical learning.

      The data of the past is congruent with the current psychological trends that face the education system of today. Developmentalists have charted how children construct and revise intuitive theories. In turn, a variety of theories have developed because of the greater use of statistical information that supports probabilistic contingencies that help to better inform us of causal models and their distinctive cognitive functions. These studies investigate the physical, psychological, and social domains. In the case of intuitive psychology, or "theory of mind," developmentalism has traced a progression from an early understanding of emotion and action to an understanding of intentions and simple aspects of perception, to an understanding of knowledge vs. ignorance, and finally to a representational and then an interpretive theory of mind.

      The mechanisms by which life evolved—from chemical beginnings to cognizing human beings—are central to understanding the psychological basis of learning. We are the product of an evolutionary process and it is the mechanisms inherent in this process that offer the most probable explanations to how we think and learn.

Die bisherige Praxis bei Verwaltungsentscheidungen in Montana, das sehr viel Öl und Gas fördert und Kohle verstromt, verstoße gegen die Verfassung. Jugendliche hatten eine Klimaklage angestrengt, die eine Modellwirkung für weitere Gerichtsentscheidungen in den USA haben dürfte.

    1. At best, we will see new forms of collaboration among large numbers of people toward beneficial ends. The most obvious example is the changing nature of responses to largescale natural disasters. Perhaps we will see this spirit of volunteer and entrepreneurial cooperation emerge to address such pressing issues as climate change (e.g., maybe, the Green New Deal will be crowdsourced)

      • Civil society is the sector where the power of We the People ultimately and properly resides.
      • Consequently, in the fully functioning Ecological Civilization,
        • government and business sectors must be
        • creations of and
        • accountable to
        • a civil society of people who embrace
          • the rights and
          • responsibilities
        • of their citizenship at all system levels from - the local to - the global.
      • We can be citizens of only one locality.
        • But we are all citizens of Earth—and the many levels in between.
      • This must be acknowledged by any truly democratic system of self-governance.

        • these beautiful qualities that have no Rhyme or Reason to them but are actually to do with creativity and Imagination
          • are not some kind of special thing that human beings impose from some kind of abstract Heaven onto Earth
          • they are actually heaven on Earth

            • it's just coming from random genetic mutation and the fact that having these feelings doesn't kill you

    1. Sciences told us that if we want to abide by this 1.5 degree Centigrade uh limit of Paris agreement we have to cut our emissions by 50 00:10:35 percent by the end of this decade by 2030 almost 50 percent so but but there is this is a huge ask and you know I cannot um answer your question because a 00:10:47 million dollar question that a world should come together uh somebody like me sitting in a developing country with its economy struggling I can only hope that that 00:10:58 put together do Collective action we need the transformation of our Energy System
      • for: collective action
      • what the world needs it is to cut the emissions to stay below 1.5 degree centigrade and currently we are 1.2 degrees Centigrade warmer than the pre-industrial and the ipcc Sciences told us that if we want to abide by this 1.5 degree Centigrade limit of Paris agreement we have to cut our emissions by 50 percent by 2030 t but there is this is a huge ask and you know I cannot answer your million dollar question
      • a world should come together somebody like me sitting in a developing country with its struggling economy, I can only hope that Collective action will happen
      • we need the transformation of our Energy System
        • and especially when it comes to the use of air conditioner
      • I'm among the haves I can afford but I feel for the street vendor out at home he cannot afford
      • this year we had a record-breaking Heat Wave and then the record Bridges flooding in Pakistan both extreme events tarnish the economy of the country altogether and those were the front lines or the poorest of the poorest who suffer
      • so I'm gonna say it's a big question mark it's a big question for the developed countries to to take the action to bring the world together at one place
    1. Beim Pariser Klima-Finanzgipfel wurden nur wenige Entlastungen für den globalen Süden beschlossen worden. Die Weltbank hat 100 Milliarden Dollar Finanzierung pro Jahr zugesagt. Einige Staaten bemühen sich um internationale Steuern zur Finanzierung von Anpassung und Klimaschutz. Ein Durchbruch bei der Verschuldung wurde nicht erreicht. In Einzelfällen wird auf die Rückzahlung von Schulden verzichtet. Ein Verzicht auf fossile Energien wurde nicht diskutiert.
