Looking forward to giving the 2019 @theRSAorg President's lecture on #climateemergency and responses from government and business later. You can watch it here live here from about 6pm: #RSAclimate
@theRSAorg @EnvAgency @ShareAction @GCAdaptation @WRIClimate @AdaptOurWorld @DefraGovUK @DFID_Climate @PRI_News @GRI_LSE @RSAEvents The #climateemergency needs to be at the heart of everything people do. It should not be given a cursory 10 minutes at the Board meeting before everyone gets back to “the business of business”. The climate crisis IS “the business of business”. #RSAclimate
@theRSAorg @EnvAgency @ShareAction @GCAdaptation @WRIClimate @AdaptOurWorld @DefraGovUK @DFID_Climate @PRI_News @GRI_LSE @RSAEvents The @IPCC_CH’s 1.5°C report is not only momentous because of what it says: it is a towering achievement because it managed to get scientists and government officials from forty different countries to agree on a single document. #RSAclimate

Des milliers & des milliers de watt/m² passent de l’océan à l’atmosphère pendant un cyclone, véritable pompe à chaleur. La preuve avec #lorenzohurricane dans l'Atlantique Nord! Trouvez-vs #Lorenzo sur cette carte d'anomalie de température de surface de la mer ? [THREAD 1/n ⤵️]
Un cyclone tropical extrait son énergie de l’océan de surface sous forme de vapeur d'eau par évaporation [flux de chaleur latente] et la convertit en mouvement d'air ou vent [énergie cinétique]. ==> L’océan perd de la chaleur et se refroidit en surface (2/n)
Petite expérience: humidifiez légèrement le dessus de votre main & soufflez dessus. Vous sentirez du froid qui correspond à l’évaporation [passage de l'eau liquide à vapeur] & perte de chaleur associée. Par analogie, votre peau est la surface de l’océan qui se refroidit (3/n)

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…:
1. Fukushima released radionuclides to the environment with much of the contamination ending up in the Pacific Ocean
2. Isotopes generate heat on decay

In #Tokyo's #Shibuya ward, you notice little of the threatening storm that is approaching

Until you want to get water or cash

None of the stores I visited had large water bottles (even though they bought extra stock), ATM's had people waiting

Apparently there also many stores where far more than water has been sold out

#Tokyo and surrounding areas seem to be getting ready for something serious


Weather warnings by the Japan Meteorological Agency as of 17:39 JST on Oct 11

The typhoon is not expected in Tokyo until Saturday
