After 40 years of life, and 20+ in the #DMV riding Metro, @wmata has finally pushed me over the edge. I am officially a car owner! *.... @unsuckdcmetro @dcmetrosucks @HakunaWMATA
Things that I will miss about Metro: Doing my part to combat #ClimateChange
Things I will NOT miss about Metro: 30 minute waits for busses & trains; overcrowding; stations & trains that are 110 degrees; ghost busses on NextBus; dirty trains & stations; single tracking; rail fires; rude & lazy station managers

Can the Green Deal really be considered as Europe's new growth strategy? A super short thread, with some numbers 👇 #ClimateChange #GreenDeal #EUGreenDeal #SOTEU
1. According to the macro-models used by the European Commission itself to assess the new 2030 climate target, the answer is: NO. At best, the EC economy would expand by 0.5% due to increased climate ambition.
2. This is not surprising. Other studies have illustrated that the macroeconomic effect of Green New Deals is likely to be small (around +0.1% of annual GDP growth according the literature review conducted by Gueret et al, 2019)…

Negli ultimi mesi medici, giornalisti e cittadini di tutto il mondo si pongono quotidianamente la stessa domanda: "Quando avremo un vaccino?”

Her cutting edge research has been deployed to win some of the toughest races and move public opinion on some of the toughest issues. She was recently called arguably the most influential woman in her field.

@LanaeErickson is chatting with @celindalake.
.@celindalake: Trump isn't personally well-liked & is carrying a very negative job performance rating.

We see a huge gender gap in the data. Women see him as chaotic, divisive, egotistical, not listening to experts. That's a governing style they don't think fits this time.
What's happening in the heads of suburban women, and what do people get wrong?

📣 These are not your grandma's suburbs. One thing people get wrong about suburbs is how diverse they are. @celindalake points to Prince George's County, MD and Fairfax, VA as examples.

@AT5 Het interessante aan de 'manmade' #ClimateChange en de #COVID19 'crisis' is de extra berg plastic afval vanwege #PPE maatregelen. Ineens maakt niemand zich druk om al dat extra COVID19 plastic. U heeft hopelijk door dat wij zwaar in de maling worden genomen?

Un lien entre le réchauffement climatique et les fortes pluies?

De nos jours, il est de plus en plus manifeste que le #changementclimatique, plus particulièrement le réchauffement climatique, exerce une influence perceptible sur notre #environnement.
#inondations Image
Alors que la désertification et la #secheresse sécheresse affectent particulièrement certaines zones, les #inondations, l’érosion côtière et l’élévation du niveau de la mer sont les principaux dangers ailleurs.
Qu’est-ce qu’une inondation ?

C’est une submersion par des #eau-x liquides d’une zone généralement émergée. Elle peut être causée par une pluie soudaine et intense ou continue et soutenue. Le risque qui lui est associé ne dépend pas uniquement de la quantité de pluie tombée. Image

As @realDonaldTrump prepares to land in California to talk wildfires, here’s a quick refresher:

1. Approx 57% of CA’s 33 million acres of forests are owned and managed by the Feds. Just 3% are owned and managed by the state or local gov’t...
2. Talking about forest management: The US Forest Service’s budget has remained fairly stagnant for the past decade. More and more of the Dept’s budget has gone into firefighting, which means less and less is going into prevention, vegetation management and dead and dying...
... tree removal. AKA “raking the forests” 🙄

This is #California’s big secret: it’s not #ClimateChange that’s burning up the forests, killing people & destroying hundreds of homes; it’s decades of environmental mismanagement that has created a tinderbox of unharvested timber, dead trees & thick underbrush.

Trees grow until they die, burn, or get harvested. If harvesting declines, tree mortality and fires increase. It’s the tyranny of math.
In the early 1990s, a series of restrictions were placed on logging in the West to protect the Spotted Owl... with owl numbers continuing to decline—even after the California timber harvest plummeted—due to predation from other raptors.

Are you in Oregon right now? Have you spent time in Western Oregon prior to this week? Unless the answer to both those questions is “yes,” you can’t know what we’re going through. #OregonWildfires2020

But it’s not your fault. National news outlets, even the reliable ones like @washingtonpost and @nytimes just aren’t capturing the uniquely dire situation in Oregon. Although @cflav and @henryfountain started to scratch the surface #OregonWildfires2020
We are not just an extension of California and Washington. We are not just experiencing the next incremental progression of #ClimateChange. This is a weather/ecological event the likes of which the world has not seen in modern history. #OregonWildfires2020 ImageImage

🌦️ How will #ClimateChange affect future temperature and precipitation in #Europe?

We have collected 8 different methods looking into this question! Check out our new @AMSJCLi paper for a comparison and discussion 👇…

Main takeaway: 🌡️ Under a high emission scenario we have to expect 2-3°C of additional warming in #Europe by the middle of the century.

🌍However, exact numbers across methods vary in several regions (such as Northern Europe)!

Our paper confirms earlier results finding a drying 🌧️☀️ in the Mediterranean but at the same time the divergence between methods is considerable and needs additional research!

“Please move. It’s too scary.”

⁃ Request of a relative in response to a post of mine abt the #wildfire 🔥 situation in CA.

🧵 Here is a thread about why this is a terrible take. (1/)

#naturaldisaster #climatechange
First, is it just my fam who should move away from a scary #wildfire-prone area or everyone else on the entire inflamed US West Coast? Or what abt ppl who live near any of the other 100s of MILLIONS of hectares that burn around the globe annually? (2/)…
And where do all of us on this planet who are afflicted by #wildfire move? Someplace w/ hurricanes? Derechos? Floods? Earthquakes? Volcanoes? Extreme heat? Sea level rise? (3/)

1. Portland almost appears to be in the eye of a hurricane. A short while ago, I went out to take pictures of the wildfire smoke that nearly surrounds the city. What looks like fog over the skyline is all smoke from various fires. #OregonFires #pdxtst #orwx ImageImage
2. On the way home, smoke was billowing up from near the DEQ off Columbia and 33rd. It turned out to be a grass fire next to a parking lot and several businesses. One car in the parking lot was destroyed before Portland Fire and Rescue could arrive. #pdxtst #OregonFires #orwx ImageImageImageImage
3. What happens when you do not #ActOnClimate? Due to #climatechange, #wildfire season has grown longer and more explosive. #OregonFires is one example. This is Portland, Oregon tonight. Smoke covers the city. God calls us to be stewards of Creation. We are failing. ImageImageImageImage
