Climate change x health x built environment thread: This is the intersection our lab is working in and are always interested in sharing stories of how damaging this intersection can be if we don't move towards adaptation. For this thread we will also add environmental racism
and inequality. To not understand climate change from the race/inequality perspective is to not understand its impact with the rigour it needs. Jacqueline Keeler has done a great job of bringing forward the plight of the Sioux Reservation @jfkeeler. newsmaven.io/indiancountryt…
1. Reservations have a long history of built environment decay. Many don't have clean water/running water/insulated homes/heating/cooling/or homes that livable. Also many live in overcrowded homes. This has to do w/racists policies stemming back 400 years.

One of the most frustrating things about the climate debate is trying to get it through to the disciples of St Greta that the science does NOT support their alarmism fabiusmaximus.com/2019/10/16/ipc… #auspol #ClimateChange
There are grounds for concern and action, yes, but not the hysterical doom-laden expectation of a climate apocalypse sometime soon.
#auspol #ClimateChange
"Summary: The IPCC’s Special Report “Global Warming of 1.5°C” is cited as the basis for climate activists’ predictions of doom. Look at the report. There is nothing in it justifying such apocalyptic forecasts."

I'm also trying 2 make plain that what even Mattis was trying 2 push that "both sides do that" is GOP trying 2 survive but if we buy that BS out of repetition we're doomed. DNC did NOT side w/Russia, or try 73+ times 2 repeal Obamacare, or give #TaxScamForRich, or protect 45
aka #TraitorInChief come Hell or high water, did NOT insert judges on USC whose main qualification was being right-wing zealots, did NOT condone conspiracy theories pushed by WH on all media leading to hatred & violence, did NOT block Muller Investigation & the appoint Barr to
complete the process, did NOT keep in power an unfit, deranged man who betrayed allies fm @NATO to #Kurds to SoKo/Japan, EU, Ukraine; did NOT use quid pro quo to blackmail a weak ally 2 get dirt & help Russia in the process, did NOT say they were going to block ANYTHING Obama put

@JayInslee Anyone who thinks #ClimateChange is a crisis & CO2 the cause hasn’t done the research & is proving their ignorance:

3.1 mm/yr sea level rise 1993-2017 (10 in. by 2100): sealevel.nasa.gov/understanding-…

Why is this constant if things are worsening? Bc they aren’t:
@JayInslee Of the atmosphere concentration:

CO2=0.03-0.04%
H2Ov=0.2-4%

answers.com/Q/How_much_in_…

sciencing.com/percentage-wat…

Water has much more effect on temperature. CO2 has little effect on anything. Its part of the cycle & concentration in the atmosphere is way too small.
@JayInslee Even NOAA says temps may only rise 2-10 F: climate.gov/news-features/…

But it can do 30 F swings on a daily basis in the Spring/Fall (45-75 F) from low-high. And models (and that site) say an increase closer to 2 F is more likely than 10 F.

Thread 1/ #Typhoon Hagibis made landfall in #Japan and has caused widespread flooding with human lives lost. Spare a thought for those in Japan who need help at present. #Fukushima Daiichi. But some are using this storm to promote scientific misinformation
2/ I am seeing posts that link the #radioactive contamination/decay heat from #Fukushima Daiichi & the development of tropical cyclones like #Hagibis and going so far as to say the human caused global warming is not like to #CO2 but nuclear fallout/contamination
3/ The argument goes something like this and is summarized in a blog I posted some time ago @dailykos dailykos.com/stories/2016/1…:
1. Fukushima released radionuclides to the environment with much of the contamination ending up in the Pacific Ocean
2. Isotopes generate heat on decay

[Thread] 1/ This one's for @GretaThunberg . I was interested in the overlap of pro-Trump and right-wing accounts with climate denial #climatechange denial. Given Trump's obvious steer & tweet against Greta, I was curious to see how ppl spoke her on Twitter #climatestrike
2/ Disclaimer: Greta has 2.8 million followers, and will be inundated with tweets. Indeed the number of people mentioning her on Twitter is huge. In a 12 hour period yesterday there were around 51,000 people interacting with her. See below >
3/ This was from around 16,000 unique accounts. Given that climate denial should be a fringe belief, it makes sense that Trump's hue and cry to attack Greta awoke the MAGA trolls. In this sample of 16,000 accounts, there are a few points worth highlighting...

For weeks and months, i have been tracking the arctic temperatures and the decline of the icecap.
Wondering why it was so warm , and for so long.
What is happening there? Icecap is down over 50%.
Albedo effect will be massively impacted by this.
#climatechange #gretathunberg
We learned a few days ago, that scientific expedition in the east siberian arctic just found methane fountains bubbling on the sea surface , in the middle of the east siberian sea.
Some of the implications :

Here is the theory:
1/ Increasing periods of open water implies an increasing number of storm events.. Such events have the potential to rapidly ventilate bubble-transported and dissolved CH4 from the water column, producing high emission rates to the atmosphere

You're taking a job running a #renewable exports campaign? Renewable exports - what's that? Why is it important?

THREAD
Last year I came up with a #Renewable Exports typology.

I reckon there are six main types of exports.

1. Direct electricity transfer via undersea cables, like the SunCable proposal to export power to Singapore afr.com/companies/ener…
2. Clean hydrogen-based fuel, using #renewable electricity to electrolyze water. Renewable hydrogen can then be turned into other chemicals like ammonia, which can be transported more easily and safely at scale.

1. Hey, Aaron! Why do you care about transit so much?

I’m glad you asked!

What I REALLY care about is what transit does & wow! does it do a lot.

Hop on board - let’s tour few of the amazing things we get from a great transit network & why it matters.

#yeg #yegcc #transit
2. Transit is an economic driver. The 2009 Ottawa transit strike had a negative economic impact of about $400 million over 51 days - that’s est. $2.5 billion a year!

In 2019 #yeg that number will be even higher.

Let that sink in a little.

#economy #yegcc
3. A 2016 Auditor’s report estimated transit saves #Yeg about $700 million a year by reducing congestion/ traffic jams, collisions & decreasing parking demand and environmental impacts.

This is big money, folks.

Let’s unpack that.

[Thread] As i've said. You are not gaining sympathy for your movement with these kind of protests. Look at the replies. 80% is negative towards you. You are doing more harm then good. You are costing people money, and now you are asking for donations as well? This is not the way!
Use your resources, your following, to educate people instead.

Like I teach my children to separate trash, plastics go by plastics, papier goes by paper ect, save empty batteries, and bring them to designated locations once a month. No water tap stays open while brushing
your teeth, no shower has to spill water while soaping in your body. No refrigerator door stays open. Close the doors because the heater is on. We are using our bicycles for small trips to get groceries. We have a small bag with us while on a hike to gather trash till we find a

Please watch the video and focus on what the russian scientist declares (13.20-14-20)
Dr Natalia Shakhova
"WE ABSOLUTELY DO NOT LIKE WHAT WE SEE THERE"

Natalia Shakhova doesn't agree with the #ipcc, which doesn't take the ESAS risk into account for calculating the various #RCP ..or any feedback loops including #CH4

Thread: #XR isnt about climate

Stuart Basden Co-founder Extinction Rebellion says XR not about Climate (that's just a symptom of a toxic system that has infected the ways we relate to each other as humans and to all life)"

XR is about #decolonialism
medium.com/@plaosmos/exti…
/1
XR about #decolonialism: Basden says "how European ‘civilisation’ spread around the globe thru cruelty & violence over the last 600 years of colonialism, where the roots of the infections go much further back"
/2
Basden #XR: "#Europeans spread their toxicity around the world, they brought torture, genocide, carnage & suffering to the ends of the earth. Their cultural myths justified the horrors, idea that indigenous people were animals (not humans)"

Stopping climate change enables us to also solve “systemic racism, white supremacy, and the wounds of the patriarchy”.

Yep. Straight from the mouth of @ExtinctionR’s co founder, Gail Bradbook.

@ExtinctionR Don't be fooled by @ExtinctionR's @gailbradbrook's flowery words and rhetoric, it is a mask to hide a hardleft pro-socialist totalitarian anti-capitalist & anti-economic growth ideology. #ExtinctionRebellion #ClimateChange #auspol.

@ExtinctionR @gailbradbrook While Bradbook is crazy, her compatriot Roger Hallam literally embodies nihilism and sheer dementedness...

#OnThisDay, one year ago, the @IPCC_CH published its Special Report on the #ParisAgreement 1.5ºC temperature target, which has transformed scientific, political and societal discourse on #ClimateChange
Today we're reflecting, courtesy of some graphics from our very own @johnlangab, what the #SR15 report told us about the reduced impacts and reduced risks of keeping global warming to 1.5ºC rather than 2ºC
First up, a reduction in very hot years. Which of course means fewer people exposed to health risks of extreme heat

Let's unpack Republican @RepBrianFitz #NationalChildHealthDay tweet. Let's look at these @GOP policies and rule changes that will affect the health of our children and grandchildren

Note➡ he constantly refers to himself as The #DefenderOfChildren 🙄

#PA01
@RepBrianFitz has remained SILENT as Trump begins to roll back the Obama era #CleanWaterAct

This is especially troublesome as our district #PA01 has a tremendous #PFAS contamination problem.

Our kids deserve clean water

@RepBrianFitz has remained SILENT as babies are ripped from their Mother's at our border and children are seperated.

Children have died in custody

@RepBrianFitz voted against providing humanitarian assistance for detained children. HR-3239

I find this advert troubling. It does not take £3 to feed 12 Mancunians in food poverty. It takes a generous, fair, humane society in which hunger is unacceptable and good food is a right and a priority. @RighttoFoodUK
It takes a change in how we perceive food, so we say, “Hunger is not acceptable,” and – better – “We have systems to prevent this.” @right2fooduk sustainweb.org/righttofood/. It takes @LivingWage incomes and an @DWP social security safety net that meets the actual cost of living.
It takes a culture that can't penalise people for being old or young; being ill; a single parent; having a disability, or with a caring role. It takes regulation of the cost of expensive necessities – water, energy, rent, transport – explicitly to protect household food budgets.

When unprecedented rainfall hit a small village in Mali in late August, it brought devastation.

Now, thanks to Dlonguebougou villagers & @camillatoulmin, we can show you the impact. And how #ClimateChange has affected weather patterns over the last 40 years.

Thread begins⬇️ 1/
The WhatsApp message from Makono Dembélé was urgent & alarming.

"The rain! It's reached over 160mm [6.5 inches] in less than 24 hours. It's extraordinary – there’s water everywhere!"

The rain started on 25 August: a deluge no one had ever seen or heard of before in the area. 2/
"The rain is causing a lot of damage; houses are falling down," continued Makono's message.

"But thanks be to God, no one has been hurt.”

Nevertheless, the consequences for Dlonguebougou and its villagers were immense... 3/

Thread: Blatant #ClimateDenial has lost. The new conflict is whether #ClimateChange is a crisis requiring urgent social and #economic transformation, or something we can adapt to incrementally while carrying on with business as usual. 1/40
2/ A recent opinion piece by Bjorn Lomborg in the @globeandmail is representative of the 'business as usual argument'. Let's deconstruct it to see how this gets passed off as the pragmatic point of view, and why it's false. theglobeandmail.com/opinion/articl…
3/ The basic tactic is this: provide a few common-sense truths to gain the air of pragmatism and then feed us the story we're desperate to hear: that everything will be fine, that growth will outpace #ClimateDamages and life can carry on as usual.
