☀️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

1/29. 📜NEW BRIEF: Today we launch “PASSED THE POINT OF NO RETURN: A Non-Economic #LossAndDamage (#NELD) Explainer” covering what #NELD is, why and how it happens, where it happens, who is most affected, and importantly, how we can respond.

🔗Get it here:…
2/29. The brief begins with a foreword by @UNFCCC NELs Expert Group Member @IrfanUllahCDO, who highlights that Non-Economic #LossAndDamage has been largely overlooked in climate negotiations and that urgent action is needed to address #NELD happening now e.g. The #PakistanFloods.
3/29. Then @DLodry of @LossDamageYouth shares the powerful story of his lived experience of Non-Economic #LossAndDamage in #Cameroon called "The Tears Of A Village River And Its Population" which tells how climate-intensified #Drought can lead to a loss of #Culture and #Identity.

'Global food prices are once again facing upward pressure due to the record cost for shipping grain in the U.S., the source of about 20% of world exports...drought conditions have caused water levels in the Mississippi River to drop' increasing costs…

And not just the Mississippi-

Drought has been a huge problem for shipping across large swaths of the northern hemisphere in 2022, impacting distribution of crops & other commodities.

#ClimateCrisis #drought #heatwave #trade…

"An unsettling drop in water levels in key European waterways has resulted in immensely strained logistics in shipping commodities throughout the continent, with barges only able to carry one-third or one-quarter of their usual cargo."

Any stats nerds out there?🤓🙋

a thread...🧵#CAwx #CAheat

Let's dive deep into Downtown Sac's record book, which goes back to 1877.

Of all days' high temps in the record book (N=53015)
▪️4.0% (n=2114) were ≥100°F
▪️0.9% (n=479) were ≥105°F
▪️0.06% (n=34) were ≥110°F

Downtown Sac's all-time record high is 114°F set in 1925.

This all-time record was most recently jeopardized last year Jul 10, 2021 with 113°F.

Several days Mon-Thu have a reasonable shot of getting added to this table. Exactly where on this table: TBD. #CAwx #CAheat

...2/4 Table showing the Hottest Maximum Temperatures Sacramento Do
Heat of this magnitude AND duration is extremely uncommon in Sacramento.

Downtown Sac has never logged more than 2 consecutive days ≥110°F (i.e., back-to-back days ≥110°F).

There's a chance this streak may be broken. #CAwx #CAheat

1/14. 📜Powerful new report to the #UN General Assembly by the @SRClimateChange Ian Fry makes crystal clear that #LossAndDamage from #ClimateChange is causing a litany of #HumanRights impacts. 🧵
2/14. In its introduction, the report highlights the inequality at the heart of the #ClimateCrisis: "50% of countries are responsible for 86 % of the cumulative global CO2 emissions", #AtmosphericColonization, and why #ClimateReparations are being demanded for #LossAndDamage.
3/14. Chapter three "#LossAndDamage: a litany of #HumanRights impacts" starts by highlighting that from a #HumanRights perspective #LossAndDamage is "closely related to the right to remedy and the principle of #Reparations".

#Mediterranean marine #heatwaves in 2022... Are we finally at the end of these concatenated heat episodes?

However, remember 2003... a brief comparison shows that 2003 was worse in more than one sense🧵
The day-by-day comparison of the evolution for both years shows that MHW in 2003 covered a wider area with a higher mean intensity... At least in the western #Mediterranean

- 4ºC (June 2003) is a HUGE amount of heat stored at the sea.
- The MHW started about 15 days earlier. Image
However, due to the #ClimateCrisis the #Mediterranean is about 0.7ºC hotter now than in 2003 (yes!). This is a mean value! In some eastern places, the sea surface #temperature is more than 1ºC larger now. But the maximum category attained was in general larger in 2003 Image

"My Baby Died Because Of FGM!"

Then, I became pregnant and ImageImage
in the process of delivery, some #women came to help me but when they opened my wrapper and saw my 'uncut private part', they washed their hands and abandoned me that I and the baby were #cursed!
I was in pain but they showed me no mercy and were about to leave the house when my
mother-in-law told me to give my consent to be circumcised or else I will die with the baby and we will both be thrown into the forest.
I have never seen very heartless people like that - my husband came into the room and ordered the circumcision.

As we face yet another #heatwave in MA, let’s talk about this NEW #ClimateLaw that @MassGovernor Baker just signed. This is a major step to help protect our communities from the devastating impacts of #ClimateChange. Here’s why: 1/13…
Why do we need more climate laws & policies on top of our Global Warming Solutions Act and Next Generation Roadmap law? While these two laws set mandatory goals to slash climate damaging pollution, we need other laws and policies to dictate HOW to accomplish these goals. 2/13
The new law sets a target of installing enough #OffshoreWind to power 2.5 million homes by 2027 and various other policies to make #CleanEnergy easier to supply to MA residents. 3/13

What’s happening with the T is more than an inconvenience, it is unacceptable.
Here’s how you can take action during the @MBTA shutdowns: (🧵1/8)…
Mere days after announcing a month-long shutdown of the #OrangeLine, the MBTA announced a closure of the #GreenLineExtension that serves the same area of Somerville, between the new #UnionSquare branch & Govt Center. ( 2/8)
These closures will be disastrous for riders in Greater Boston who rely on the T every day and who may have limited alternatives during this historic #HeatWave. 🌡️ For many, walking or biking is simply not an option. ( 3/8)

1/ What if I told you - with the continent suffering another #heatwave and England in severe #drought conditions - that increasing forest cover in Europe by 20% would result in 8% more summer rain, with negligible effects on winter rain?

You might not believe me, but it's true.
2/ What if I told you that photographs over a 54-year period since the reintroduction of beavers to Alberta, Canada, showed they were associated with a 900% increase in open water and a "damatic influence" on mitigating extreme #drought?

You might not believe me, but it's true.
3/ What if I told you that if every household in the U.K had a water meter, we would reduce household water waste by a billion litres a day within three months and two billion litres a day within two years?

You might not believe me, but it's true.
