1/ "But this year, the #rains have been especially intense, a harsh reminder that #climatechange is bringing more extreme weather around the world."
2/ "In #China, where recent #flooding has displaced hundreds of thousands of people, the state-run news media reported this week that water levels had surged beyond flood levels in more than a hundred #rivers."

Pretty disappointed with how #TheBusiness portrayed me. I told a much larger story than this, and though it is well summed up with an angst around affordability that doesn’t go away, including rent, petrol, food, essentials (not mentioned) it was so much more than that. #auspol
There was no mention of the #RoyMorgan #unemployment statistic of 8.5%, nor that the ABS figure of 4% is fanciful in not counting anyone as unemployed who works just one hour a week, or has weeks off having worked in the gig economy, or who is sick, injured, etc. #auspol
That employees are working those #jobs created by the need to clean up after the recent #floods. That right now employment going down - is to be expected - as the #casual labour market has soaked up the extra workers needed and under and unemployed people have stepped up. #auspol

1/n 📢🧵: The @IPCC_CH launched their new report (WG2-AR6) this week, exploring the impacts of #climate risks, #adaptation & vulnerability. Here are some insights on the key takeaways for #India.🇮🇳🌏♻️
#ClimateReport #IPCC #IPCCReport
🔗Read Asia Ch. 10 ➡️ bit.ly/3twyIVI Image
2/n #India🇮🇳 is at risk of multiple #climaticrisks, many of which are accelerating in frequency & intensity. Rising temp.🌡️are likely to cause severe heat stress in summer, esp. in cities where temp.🌡️can be more than 2℃ warmer than the surroundings due to heat island effects. Image
3/n Extreme rainfall events are projected to lead to more frequent #flooding in settlements near vulnerable rivers & flood risks across the country will become more frequent & severe. Higher than 🌏 mean sea level rise for #Asia’s coasts exposes 🇮🇳’s large coastal population. Image

Living and experiencing the #floods in #Mullumbimby was/is the most insane experience of my life.

Still so raw. I lost my home. When it first happened I was trapped in my house and had to break off the door...
Then escaped in my wetsuit w surfboard

This is my experience:
🧵
2/ I live 2 streets from Mullumbimby town centre.
The biggest issue for all of us was no warning.
The only reason I knew this might happen was because I was following Higgins Storm Chasers on Facebook.
Our weather apps and BOM said 40mm and maybe mild to moderate flooding.
3/ I picked up sandbags on the Sunday afternoon but the SES had hardly any sand, we were the only people there and, when I asked what they thought, they just said maybe we might but they always say it and just shrugged their shoulders.

On Nov 15, 2021 an #AtmosphericRiver hit the #Fraser Valley and Canyon. In support of a BC Salmon Restoration Innovation Fund #BCSRIF project and with support from @HakaiInstitute, we flew the Fraser Canyon to document the #floods and #landslides that occurred. 1/18 #BCStorm
Our research examines how the size and frequency of landslides in Fraser Canyon affect river morphology, flow dynamics, #salmon migration, and their genetics. What follows are names, pictures, and coordinates of #landslide events we identified, both big and small. 2/18 #BCStorm
Wahleach Slides (49°14'10.01"N; 121°40'40.35"W). Debris flows tracks that fail every few years on East side of Fraser River near the Wahleach Hydro Plant. They cross the TMX pipeline construction. There are two major deposits on #Highway1 and many smaller failures. 3/18 #BCStorm

Chennai has been worse severely hit & these are lessons learnt from #chennai floods & rains 2021

Nature is the most powerful force in the universe.

Prayers stay with you if you invest in them.

A positivity mindset is key to survive hard times.

People help each other out when there is time of need!

Manual labourers need to be treated with much more respect.

The city requires a lot of work and only depending on the government is totally absurd.

1/New work aimed at resolving the "extreme precipitation-#flood paradox" in warming #climate, led by @ManuelaIBrunner (@UniFreiburg) & including co-authors @Weather_West (@UCLAIoES), @Climate_Done (@C3WE_NCAR), is now out in @CommsEarth (open access!). nature.com/articles/s4324…
2/The "extreme precipitation-flood paradox" arises from fact that despite abundant evidence for increasing rainfall extremes due to #ClimateChange, there is not (yet) a correspondingly clear & systematic increase in flood magnitude. nature.com/articles/s4324…
3/To address this conundrum, we use a high-resolution regional hydrologic model coupled to a high-resolution (single model) regional climate large ensemble (collectively, a "hydroSMILE") centered on hydrologic Bavaria (including parts of Germany, Austria, & Switzerland). Image

Another heatwave grips Washington, Oregon & British Columbia. Climate change - long predicted + denied - is here.

We know it's time to transition off fossil fuels.

And, all year, @invw's Decarbonizing #Cascadia series is exploring how we can. invw.org/getting-to-zer…
We launched in January explaining how a region w/ official goals to slash emissions and the means to do it just keeps getting dirtier. @invw analyzed the latest data, showing that Washington, Oregon and BC's emissions rose by 5, 6 and 7% b/w 2013 & 2018.
invw.org/2021/01/11/how…
We also profiled #Cascadia's activists, such as the @youthvgov litigants suing govts for the right to a livable future and campaigners eroding Big Oil, Gas and Coal's political power. @robertmcclure showed how activists bottled up fossil export proposals. invw.org/2021/01/18/a-t…

#climatescience former Met Office chief scientist Prof
told BBC News: "We should be alarmed because the IPCC #climatemodels are just not good enough

It’s is IMPOSSIBLE to say how much of an (existential) emergency we are in because we don’t have the tools to answer question🤔
Some scientists argue that it's futile to wait for the @IPCC_CH to say how bad the #climatecrisis will be 👀

Just to show the scale of the massive #floods in western Europe, here you have the confluence of the rives Our and Sauer (which forms the 🇱🇺 🇩🇪 border). Left, the picturesque view in normal times. Right, a picture made by a family member just minutes ago..
The water level in the River Sauer (called Sûre in French) was 608.1cm at 11.30am. To put it into perspective, the vigilance level is 350cm and alert level is 425cm.
Elsewhere in the state of Rhineland-Palatinate the situation seems to be even worse. In Belgium it's also precarious - with even a city as large as Liège now being partially evacuated.

Extreme #Weather Events Like Devastating #Floods Cost #India $10 Billion, Finds UK Report

weather.com/en-IN/india/ne…

(📸: C Suresh Kumar/TOI, BCCL, Chennai) Image
Fifteen extreme weather events, influenced by #climatechange, were identified globally this year, including the terrible #floods that struck India cost $10 billion, killing 2,000, a UK charity report said on Monday.

#WhatThe2020
The #London-based Christian Aid's report, 'Counting the cost 2020: A year of climate breakdown', said 10 of those events cost $1.5 billion or more.The #US was hit by the highest costs due to the record-breaking #hurricane season and #fires.

#Floods and #wildfires are both subject to regression to the tail. The same holds for #droughts, #hurricanes, #landslides, #icemelt, #sealevelchange, and other phenomena closely related to the climate crisis. Image
This tells us that understanding regression to the tail and how to mitigate its specific manifestations for climate will be key to mitigating the climate crisis.
Here it is worth remembering that regression to the tail for the climate crisis will be just as indifferent to human ignorance and folly as regression to the tail is for covid-19.
