The failure of all weather models to identity this storm as dangerous is a wake up call. It was in the same place as the catastrophic flooding last year.

The EU needs meso-scale forecasting systems similar to those in the US.
Here's a picture of a supercell thunderstorm over Germany yesterday evening from @UwBeobachtung - storms similar to this can produce dangerous tornadoes. Europe may well soon face tornadoes - as well as acutely dangerous flooding events.
Improved weather forecasting for the entore planet has been clearly identified by the @WMO as one of the most useful investments that could be made for #ClimateAdaptation and #ClimateResilience it would be a no-brainer to deploy systems world wide like those used now in the US.

"Good intentions and accurate data still aren’t enough. You also need to know that you’ve collected the right data and asked the right questions, and these are both much, much harder than the introductory effective altruist material tends to let on." greeneracresvaluenetwork.wordpress.com/2022/05/28/dai…

Who else attended today's @OECD Development Co-operation Report 2021 launch event on shaping a just #DigitalTransformation?✋

Panelists expanded upon some of the report's key themes, including:

📅 Acting now!
⬆️ More #coordination
🖼️ Strong #frameworks
🧑‍🤝‍🧑 #InclusiveDevelopment
But we also heard a lot about #DigitalPublicGoods (#DPGs). Like... A LOT a lot.

So, what's the connection between #DPGs and a just, #inclusive #DigitalTransformation? Why have so many #donors, national #governments, and #tech experts alike expressed interest in #DPG solutions?
Well, they all agree that #DigitalTransformation is at a tipping point globally, with the divisions between wealthy and developing nations especially stark: 96% of the world's unconnected people live in developing countries.

This is going to be a thread about the #COVIDRecovery #BuildBackBetter #RecoveryPlan and how it's been a total failure through the lens of #emissions #climatechange and #adaptation. #ClimateCrisis #ClimateEmergency #EconomicRecovery 🧵 1/x
I started following this in December 2020, when this paper was released:

"If fiscal packages are invested in carbon-intensive technologies and traditional fossil fuel-based infrastructure, this will bring huge lock-in effects on emissions."

"Five-year emissions will increase by 15.6% (22.0 Gt) versus decreases of 4.7% (6.6 Gt), if the fiscal packages were invested in clean energy and advanced technologies (scenario SDS)." 3/x

#DevelopmentCongress yesterday saw @KVairavamoorthy opening the event with a thought, when we can maintain a town sized community of 750,000 people airborne at any given time with modern water & sanitation amenities, what stops us from providing it to our fellow humans (1/n)
Drawing from his heritage, he noted, "it is the management of water and sanitation that has determined the longevity and exuberance of civilizations". #Resilience #Sanitation #ClimateResilience (2/n)
The tank systems prevalent in Sri Lanka and South of India were drawn as examples, as attempts by decision makers then to maintain an ecological balance while attempting to improve economic prosperity #EcologicalCivilization (3/n)
