Le Grand Livre du Climat - sous la direction de @GretaThunberg : le fil de lecture 🧶📖

J'ouvre ce thread de ma lecture de la traduction française de ce recueil d'articles consacrés au #réchauffementclimatique et ses enjeux, édité par les éditions Kero | Calmann-Lévy. (1/n) Le Grand Livre du Climat - ...
Tout d'abord, quelques mots sur le travail de @GretaThunberg sur ce livre. Il ne s'agit pas de sa seule plume, la jeune militante a souhaité constitué un recueil de textes scientifiques couvrant les plus larges thématiques possibles associées au #climat et ses conséquences (2/n)
Greta Thunberg a donc écrit différentes préfaces, au livre comme à ses sections, ainsi qu'une postface concluant l'ouvrage. En lisant sa plume, sommes loin des préjugés médiatiques et punchlines des réseaux sociaux. Le ton est nuancé, les propos renseignés. (3/n)

In coming days the UK and much of Europe is going to suffer DEEP freeze due to a sudden stratospheric warming (SSW) event. Warnings are out all over Europe due to a dramatic shift in atmospheric air moving from the North Pole. MORE…
2/SSWs are tied to #GlobalWarming weakening of the #PolarVortex system that clockwise circles the North Pole, holding subzero air over the #Arctic. Severe SSWs reverse the spin, shift warm ocean currents & slam the No Hemisphere w/deep freeze air.
3/Irish forecasters say that a SSW will slam Ireland next week.
In a SSW stratospheric winds, "reverse frm westerly to easterly & the temps in the stratosphere over polar regions rise significantly in just a few days."
Pole gets hotter; Europe colder.

@TyotoRiffle @DrLoupis You clearly DON'T know what I said

Climate "Scientists" are running a scam

Scientists who know what they are talking about can debunk them

But most daren't as their careers depend on government Carbon Tax funded MMGW & linked "Research" Grants

But if the scammers are...
@TyotoRiffle @DrLoupis But if the scammers are running a scam can a Glaciologist uncover hidden emails admitting it

Can an Atmospheric Physicist establish collusion

A computer scientist isn't an expert on MMGW

But they are experts on what computers can

And CAN'T do

An Engineer isn't either

@TyotoRiffle @DrLoupis An Engineer isn't an expert on MMGW either

But they do know about eg hydraulics & fluid dynamics

In the real world

And they know you still can't accurately model flow in a canal never mind a river or estuary

To model the climate which is average weather you have to model...

#geopolitical tedium is not for me. I like the world of ordinary matter and energy (and physics and chemistry and all of it) far too much. I like tools and instruments and equipment, and knowing how to use them. fretting about #Russia or #China is not my highest priority.

yet American #politics and political #media have completely inundated popular culture—because @jack Dorsey and #MarkZuckerberg permitted the politicization of #Internet #socialmedia. on specious grounds they kicked down the door between "public" and "private" online.

now, both @TheDemocrats and the @GOP, both @UKLabour and the @Conservatives, and political parties and political figures all over the world freely do business in full public view; @elonmusk openly conspires with @mtaibbi and @lhfang and @bariweiss in full public view.

the modern "#conservative" movement, the right wing of American politics, is fundamentally about the primacy of emotions over reason.

of course that's not something that right-wing politicians and pundits will ever admit openly. @MattWalshBlog pretends to be "rational".

Western society exalts itself as the sole embodiment of reason and logic and science on Earth; even mere #Christian bigots like @dalepartridge or @jordanbpeterson have taught themselves to pretend that their bigotries—and indeed their religious assertions—are "logical".

this is an easy trick for human beings to manage.

any human being can be taught to stick, without ever yielding, to an assertion—however absurd the assertion is. "@jordanbpeterson is logical and rational" is an absurd assertion but Mr. Peterson and his fans stick by it.

Lützerath lives! The world is watching and fighting for #climatejustice!

The village of #Lützerath, in Germany has become a crystallization point in the global fight against coal and other #fossilfuels.

🧵 (1/9)
(2/9) It is on the brink of the biggest coal mines in Europe which are owned by the biggest #CO2 emitter in Europe, the fossil fuel megacompany #RWE.
(3/9) The village was occupied by climate activists for 2,5 years to stop RWE from digging the coal under Lützerath in solidarity with the fights of indigenous and most affected people in the #GlobalSouth

@jordanbpeterson a sure sign @jordanbpeterson is really a dunce, is that he *talks* like a dunce about science. this muddled, profoundly ignorant man—who undoubtedly pretends, like all #Christian fanatics do these days, to be a champion and guardian of science—*makes fun* of science.

@jordanbpeterson global warming isn't tough to grasp if you know a few basic things about science. @jordanbpeterson could learn these things, if he weren't dedicated to *remaining* the dunce that he is.

the _carbon cycle_ of the Earth involves the interchange of carbon between physical phases.

💥How to lie with charts.💥There are myriad ways to lie with statistics and graphs, but here is one of the most common tricks.

Look at this chart of CO2 concentration in the atmosphere. Looks startling! Can you identify the trick?

(Now, see next tweet)
It's the manipulation of the Y-Axis! Rather than starting at 0, it starts at 260.

Now, the same data, same chart... with Y-Axis starting at 0.

Not so impressive!

Climate Scam people use this trick a lot.

#ClimateChange #globalwarming
Or, you can make the growth look the LEAST sensational by making the Y-Axis range larger!

Now, CO2 looks like a joke! 😆

incidentally, this issue to which I allude in my little analysis of one of Jordan Peterson's diagrams—this issue of where Daughters are supposed to come from, if there's only one Father who only wants a Son—is central to the fundamental *absurdity* of #Christian monism.

the scheme is oversimplified to the point of inanity—so fixedly insistent upon the primacy of masculinity to the point that there's *no room* for more than token representation of femininity, as one sees with reactionary expulsion of the Blessed Mary from #Christian canon.

even the #Catholic Church, the Church of the @Pontifex, would rather not that Catholics talked too loudly about the Blessed Mary. they've guiltily permitted some folk worship of Mary, in various aspects—otherwise their dour, manly faith would have had little mass appeal.

#capitalism optimizes for bad engineering. I don't think there's any good reason to doubt that.

capitalism—thanks to the authoritarian methods of capitalist leadership, and the extreme fixation on profiteering and wealth-hoarding, *cannot* and will not build to last.

the easiest way for corporate #management and #executive persons to increase profits, instantaneously, is by *increasing their skim*. they shave more and more and more off every budgetary item they can possibly think of—capitalists *especially* begrudge paying workers.

the ideal worker, in #capitalism, pays the capitalist to have a job.

this is essentially what "company scrip" is about—and capitalists have been attempting to reintroduce the idea of paying workers with false money via the magic of @jack's favorite thing, #cryptocurrency.

🧵Aside from death/public health, & the great wealth transfer, a major cost of the #plandemic may be a breaking of the social contract, resulting from the distortions to morality it has caused, in tandem with an institutionalisation of #WokeAgenda & #postmodernism
Politicians on both sides, captured by lobbyists from #bigpharma & #bigtech have divided society by attacking science whilst turning a blind eye to reason. There’s a feeling of dread that we no longer have anywhere left to turn. @WAPFLondon

You never hear of #animalrights activists having empathy with their counterparts in India, even when those animal rights activists are kileld for their efforts at protecting cows…
In India doing the exact same animal rights activism as in the western nations earns the tag of being right-wing Hindu fascists. In this upside-down situation #AnimalCruelty is lauded as #secularism
The same anti-Hindu media which support cow slaughter in India then warn how eating beef is contributing to #globalwarming and #climatechange…

Vous avez sûrement vu passer des observations de Pingouins, et vous manquez d'explications sur ce phénomène exceptionnel ? Des ornithologues réfléchissent sur des explications probables, MAIS pas forcément confirmées. Donc #Thread #globalwarming #birdwatching #birds
Je cite : "L'afflux de pingouins n'est probablement pas sans lien avec celui des mouettes tridactyles qui commencent à atteindre la région, et celui d'autres oiseaux pélagiques sur le littoral atlantique. En cause, vraisemblablement les dépressions, et vents violents, qui...
...touchent l'Atlantique Nord depuis plusieurs semaines, notamment l'épisode du 17 novembre qui précède l'afflux des différentes espèces concernées. On aurait donc affaire à des oiseaux épuisés, ce qui expliquerait également la mortalité non négligeable signalée...

☀️My first PhD paper is out today! We investigated the extraordinary 2021 PNW heatwave🔥(+ Kai Kornhuber @KKornhuber & Mingfang Ting @mfting), identifying processes that supercharged it and their relations to climate change. @NatureClimate Link:… Image
Here’s a free access link to the pdf:
We found that atmospheric dynamics played a key role in the PNW #heatwave: leading up to it, the jet stream bent into a huge hemisphere-wide wave—forming a heat dome in the PNW that was likely boosted by a smaller atmospheric wave coming off the Pacific. Image

Europe had a richer nature during the warm postglacial climatic optimum than today.

The landscape of northern Europe, including Scandinavia, looked very different during the postglacial climatic optimum.

The nature in southern and central Scandinavia did not look like what we are now used to. Both the climate and nature instead reminded of present-day northern and central France.
All the way up in Norrland dominated forests with elm, ash, oak, linden and hazel mixed with pine and birch. The fir had not yet come further than the far north.

Last month, @WMO reported that methane emissions are rising faster than ever.

Today, we explore how governments fail to tackle methane emissions from animal agriculture—and why we need to slash methane emissions now to tackle #GlobalWarming and ensure a livable future. 1/13 Image
2020 and 2021 saw the largest increases in methane emissions since records began, according to @WMO.

Their data indicates that biological sources, such as agriculture, are responsible, rather than #methane from gas leaks. @ConservationOrg reports. 2/13…
Animal agriculture contributes to global warming through GHG emissions, including methane and nitrous oxide.

Millions of ruminant animals raised for food globally, such as cows and sheep, emit #methane through a process called enteric fermentation. 3/13…

@mattyglesias let's count crises, shall we? @dick_nixon might have done the same. @mattyglesias isn't good at recognizing crises (or much else), so let's *help*.

1. #capitalism has wrecked the usual equilibrium of the Earth's carbon cycle, causing a growing excess in atmospheric CO2.

@mattyglesias @dick_nixon 1a. #capitalism profits from turning solid forms of carbon (fuels) into gaseous CO2, and the ordinary mechanisms of Earth's climate and geology are not able to "fix" enough gaseous carbon in order to correct for the man-made imbalance. hence, #GlobalWarming is occurring.

@mattyglesias @dick_nixon 2. #capitalism is addicted to #debt and unearned income made from collection of perpetually accruing interest payments. capitalists like one thing: bank accounts whizzing ever upwards. infinitely accruing interest gives the *appearance* of infinitely increasing #money.
