(1) Today's story was the destruction caused by Hurricane Ian in Florida. It is one of the strongest hurricanes ever to strike Florida, and in the coming days, we will learn more about the damage and victims.

🧵 Beginning of a thread

(2) Expect lots of shocking photos and heartbreaking videos on social media that will remind us of the power of nature, specifically when boosted by the additional energy we have trapped in the system.

🧵 #IanHurricane #Hurricane_Ian

(3) Man-made climate change has raised sea levels and warmed the oceans, which fueled Ian to a hurricane that, at a certain point, was just two mph shy of a Category 5.

@catabreu_ @cjmcgowne Reliance on wind and solar energy means freezing in the dark on windless winter nights.

Even Bill Gates understands that.
@catabreu_ @cjmcgowne The other main "renewable" energy is biofuels. Vast swaths of Indonesia & Malaysia have been converted from forests and food production into monoculture palm plantations, to make biodiesel, to "fight climate change." It is environmentally catastrophic.
@catabreu_ @cjmcgowne #ClimateChange is not an environmental problem. On the contrary, it is highly beneficial. It is greening the Earth:…

Please encourage newcomers to #WesternU to consider voting in the upcoming #ldnont municipal election. Student turnout for these elections is historically low, yet students will be affected by many decisions to be made by the next local government. Also……
If you wanna get informed about the election, check out accounts like @ThrivingLdnOnt & @london_votes. Watch online recordings of debates hosted by @ULLdn to find out how local candidates stack up on issues. There are good summaries available to make your research really simple!
Electing representatives who follow science and base decisions on evidence is an impactful #climateaction we can easily undertake. @CityofLdnOnt declared a climate emergency, but it’s up to the next municipal council to oversee implementation of the Climate Emergency Action Plan

You know what's wrong with #ClimateAction ?
Because - the climate disaster is caused by action. What we need is #ClimateLessAction. #ClimateSlowDown. #ClimateDoLess. #ClimateLocalize
A long time Twitter friend sent me this today, and it's truer than anything else.
We are dying of flash floods in low places nationwide and we ABSOLUTELY REFUSE to adapt to a landscape with beavers. Farmers hate them, road districts hate them, most yard owners hate them - we need
3. beavers *desperately*.
All the bugs are going extinct. #ClimateOutlawInsecticides.
There is absolutely no industrial activity underway on Planet Earth that is not degrading the ecosystem.
The ecosystem created us, not the other way around. We weren't inevitable, we just fit.

Q2: What’s the role of #renewables in Germany’s #powermix?

Wind & PV are the #Energiewende's backbone & the cheapest form of #electricity.

Power generation mix in 2021 (vs. 2000):
Renewables 40% (6.5%)
Lignite/hard coal 28% (48%)
Nuclear 12% (27%)
Natural gas 15% (9%). Image
In 2022, the share of coal has increased from 28 to 33%, compensating for the disruption of Russian gas imports.
However, the German government has stressed that this shift is temporary and will not adversely affect Germany’s #climatetargets.
You can explore why #renewables in the power mix are important for #climateaction and energy security on our dashboard:

We're in a #ClimateEmergency that is being fuelled by our addiction to private cars.

Although we appreciate that @GalwayCityCo are trying to make changes, this plan simply isn't good enough.

We need a paradigm shift towards active and public transport INSTEAD of private cars.
@IrishCycle have brilliantly highlighted some of the many flaws with this plan.

Galway's geography and small size lends itself perfectly to walking and cycling, but this plan will largely preserve the congested car addicted Galway we know today.
The news coverage of this plan isn't great either, as @rtenews and @patmcgrath headline is "Plans aim to limit private cars in parts of Galway" as opposed to "Plans to (somewhat) improve public transport in Galway"

BREAKING: The 2022 Climate Bill has passed the Senate.

It is heartening to see Australia’s legislators finally taking the climate crisis seriously.

Quotes below to be attributed to Climate program manager @gavan_mcfadzean

“For too long Australia has been a laggard and a laughing stock. This is no longer the case.

“ACF commends parliamentarians – in the House of Representatives and the Senate – who have strengthened this bill on its passage through the parliament."

“Amendments to this legislation, introduced by Senator @DavidPocock and supported by a majority of Senators, have improved the transparency of this bill.

“It’s good to see parliamentarians working together for stronger action on climate change."

Heat stress already poses an "extreme risk" to agriculture in 20 countries, including agricultural giant India

But by 2045, 64 nations representing 71% of current global food production will be impacted

Including China, India, Brazil & the U.S.

"I think what it reinforces is that, even though a lot of us are sort of sitting in sort of Western countries, where we might think we're a bit more insulated from some of these threats, actually we are not necessarily"

Journey started on the @cta blue line from Jeff park. I forgot how many stairs there were at the Clinton stop lol (4 flights!) but there’s a nice bike path for the last couple blocks to union station! ImageImageImage
Arrived early just in case, and got a little ticket for the bike. They announced a delay but then the line started moving and we ended up leaving pretty much right on time anyway! So far so good 😊 ImageImage

There is a lot going on but spare a moment to think about the fact that 1/3 of Pakistan is under water. Like Pakistan, many poor/developing countries will bear the worst of climate disasters. The global #ClimateCrisis is also eco-racism on steroids.…
Why do I say the global #ClimateCrisis is also eco-racism on steroids. ? Because the countries doing the least amount of damage to the global ecosystem will suffer the most from the climate crisis.

As one born on a small island, I have emphasized the disproportionate effect of climate change on small island nations of the Pacific & Caribbean. The fact is, they do the least amount of environmental damage, and they will reap the most deleterious effects of #ClimateChange.

Local food, community supported agriculture, gardening will all play critical roles going forward-

If you aren't already, do learn and pay attention to growing your own food, #permaculture, #savesoil, #regenerativeagriculture & related initiatives

I have found these books (amongst many others) to be particularly helpful on #gardening-……

Epic flooding in #Pakistan has:

⚠️ killed over 1000 people;

⚠️ affected 30 million others;

⚠️ destroyed hundreds of thousands of homes;

⚠️ wrecked millions of acres of crops;

⚠️ caused billions of dollars’ worth of damage.

It confirms the need for #ClimateAction.
🧵 Image
Triggered by unprecedented monsoon rainfall and glacial melting, #Pakistan’s cataclysm is a terrible reminder that, when we talk about climate change, we’re not discussing some future environmental dystopia.

We’re living it now.
As a country particularly vulnerable to climate change, Pakistan is on the frontlines of this reality.

#Pakistan faces rates of warming well above the global average and, with that, extreme climate events are more likely to be more frequent and more intense.

Forests are important. Here’s why🧵 1/n

- make shade & cool the surface
- capture CO2
- purify the air
- make clouds & rain
- prevent drought
- prevent flooding
- prevent erosion

#rewilding #ClimateAction
2/n. Forests act as stabilisers for earth’s climate. They’re essential for our survival. And they’re under extreme threat.


@IrishRainforest @GeorgeMonbiot @GretaThunberg @gringreen @andypic @dwnews
3/n. Our ecosystem, the one we rely on survival for, relies heavily on forests. Our farmers rely on the steady rains forests bring.

Ironically agricultural expansion drives almost 90 percent of global deforestation.

'Very scary': European agriculture hit hard by climate change and drought

⚠️It is *really*, absolutely scary. Please pay attention to this & get it on the radar if your broader community-

This is happening way too soon & only gets worse.

The climate crisis is *already* impacting food supplies in wealthy countries- & look at what is being ignored in Somalia:

'Crops are failing while millions of livestock die, as the drought cripples the main source of income for 80% of the population...'…

Important times in the @AboutTheHouse as we proceed through the consideration in details stage of the Climate Change Bill. #auspol
@Mon4Kooyong has moved an amendment to strengthen the objects of the Climate Change Bill to ensure the goal of the Paris Agreement of keeping warming to +1.5. #climateaction
✅ Amendment moved by @zdaniel to Climate Change Bill to ensure 43% emissions reduction by 2030 is clearly a floor, not a ceiling passed!👍 #auspol

While a severe 2022 #marineheatwave is affecting the #Mediterranean Sea, what are the lessons learnt from past #MHW?

1⃣ Tens of sessile species belonging to diverse groups (corals, sponges, algae...) can be affected by mass mortality events,.... will new ones enlarge the list?
2⃣ Large scale mass mortality events can affect thousands of km of coastline across all Mediterranean ecoregions, probably most of the affected areas have been already impacted by previous events...will new areas will enlarge the list?
3⃣ #Marineheatwave are not only observed in the sea surface, but they propagate down in the water column, correspondingly mass mortality events impacts are visible from surface down to +40m depth...will the events will reach depths never impacted before?

The Inflation Reduction Act has the potential to be a historic turning point. It represents the single largest investment in climate solutions & environmental justice in US history. Decades of tireless work by climate advocates across the country led to this moment. 1/3
No deal is perfect and we need many more actions to solve the climate crisis. Yet, this bill is a long overdue and necessary step to ensure the US takes decisive action on the climate crisis that helps our economy and provides leadership for the world by example. 2/3
It's time to join together in support of this bold #ClimateAction – and then accelerate our efforts to continue our work to move away from the dirty energy economy of the past and toward a sustainable future. 3/3
