Welsh Government's 'deep dive' into #renewables is complete! https://gov.wales/written-statement-outcome-deep-dive-renewable-energy
There are some interesting proposals here:
* Ambition to scale up much more renewable energy 📈
* Develop a National Energy Plan by 2024 📑
* Supporting behaviour change (this is vital!!) ✊👏
* A Wales Energy System Architect 🤔🧐
* A review of the consenting process ✔️
* Using procurement to support the sector 💷
* Support for community energy 🦸
Some health statistics here for the UK, for health policy wonks

A necessary reminder that the #ClimateEmergency is also a #HealthEmergency, #NatureEmergency, a #SocialEmergency, an #EconomicEmergency....it impacts on everything, and should therefore underpin everything we do.
This important blog post by Professor Martin Innes of Cardiff University / Prifysgol Caerdydd for the Institute of Welsh Affairs talks about the susceptibility of #Wales to disinformation (spoiler alert - we are highly susceptible 😲), mirroring the commentary provided over the years by our own @davidoclubb on the risk to Wales' democracy from social media.
Our Partner, David Clubb, is quoted in this BBC Wales News piece about coastal flooding and erosion https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-57852719 🗣️🎙️🗞️
We first blogged about the issue in November 2019 👇👇 https://afallen.cymru/2019/11/13/wales-underwater/
This looks interesting - Welsh Government has set up a blog seeking views on the development of streams of work arising from the WFG legislation
Take a look and submit your comments - we are really pleased that the blog has an RSS feed to streamline keeping up with the news!
Don't forget the plants! 🌹🍂🌿🌵🏵️🍄
As our climate shifts into a more destructive, heat-driven epoch, so plant life will change across the globe. This Yale School of the Environment article uses the fossil record to highlight some likely impacts.
What will be the impact in #Wales?
Come to #CommunityEnergyWales' 'state of the sector' event on Wed 23 June https://tocyn.cymru/en/event/0641abb5-69be-4a52-9a00-a9a4c569d226
Are #Wales' regulators sufficiently resourced to support farmers in stewardship of our land?
An excellent article here by Jane Powell, for the Institute of Welsh Affairs, decrying the UK austerity which has hollowed out much of the capacity to do good in this area.
Climate policy is an integral part in achieving a zero-carbon society, according to this analysis from Carbon Brief.
Let's keep pushing!!
The science is clear. Numerous councils and governments have declared it. So why are so many media outlets reluctant to report on the #ClimateEmergency?
Not got the time to read 227 pages of the International Energy Agency (IEA)'s latest report? 🤔📔
Us neither. That's why we're so glad that Carbon Brief has produced this summary https://www.carbonbrief.org/iea-renewables-should-overtake-coal-within-five-years-to-secure-1-5c-goal (tl;dr: invest in renewables)
It's packed with info on the projections of all aspects of energy, including renewables, coal, gas, hydrogen and transport.
This US article (https://modernfarmer.com/2021/05/opinion-the-case-for-putting-climate-labels-on-meat/) about putting carbon labels on food products is a good read - and it references a peer-reviewed paper (https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0306919221000142) showing that even climate sceptics choose lower-carbon products when provided with information 🙌👏
Croeso i aelod newydd y tim Afallen - Nikira! 🤝🙌🙋
Wind and solar continue to smash global records for installation 🥳🙋💃🕺🎆
We love this. Advertising is a powerful, and often corrosive, force in society. Let's ban advertising the stuff that damages our society the most - fossil fuels for sure, but we can add gambling to that list. We know many of you will have your own suggestions!
