@ECVC1: Today, #17April2021, International Day of Peasant Struggles, it is important to look to the future, towards our new challenges, but also to look to the past, to see what we have already achieved, such as the UNDROP. Globalize the struggle, globalize hope! @via_campesina https://t.co/hnOoIi2SjE

@jasonhickel: Emissions targets based on % reduction can be quite problematic from a justice perspective. For example, if the US achieves its target of ~50% reduction by 2030, its per capita emissions will still be higher than the EU's today, and more than double the global South average.

@fermatslibrary: 1729 was the number of the cab that G.H. Hardy took when he visited S. Ramanujan in the hospital.

Hardy thought it was a "dull number" and Ramanujan replied "it is a very interesting number. It is the smallest number expressible as the sum of two cubes in two different ways" https://t.co/OFc0UATSXR
