Global evidence demonstrates clear causal links b/w heatwave intensity & #ClimateChange tinyurl.com/2p9ftrky

As per @rocksea, data for 70 years shows that “the number of heatwaves is directly in response to #GlobalWarming.”

The Indian government has banned #wheat exports.
For the past more than a month, I've been reporting on the possible wheat crisis in India due to low production this year (owing to early heatwaves) and huge exports due to rising global demand for wheat. (1/n)
Rising exports due to #UkraineRussianWar, low procurement of wheat in the sarkari mandis, and a drop in wheat yield due to #heatwaves.
We spoke to experts to explore whether India was headed for a wheat shortage?

Indian wheat market was very volatile. As GoI revised wheat allocation under PMGKAY due to low production & govt procurement, exporters reaped huge profits. @rozi_roti experts warned of a possible wheat shortage in the country. My report: gaonconnection.com/read/wheat-pro…

A summary 🧵:
1/10 Image
#heatwave communication is an important part of effective adaptation. News media play a key role in shaping how we think and feel.

Whilst there's ++ research on textual media representations, there's far less on visuals. But visuals play a key role in communication!

2/10
We examined media coverage (text and visual) from the UK, Netherlands, France and Germany during summer 2019. Importantly, this was for news that mentioned BOTH keywords #heatwave and #ClimateChange.

Our detailed codebook and coder instructions are available in Supp Info

I was live on @BBCNews last night talking about the language of #climate change. Here's a thread of short clips. First, I was asked to address what we call it: #ClimateChange #ClimateCrisis #ClimateEmergency #GlobalWarming Great to talk with @bbcdavideades!
Then we discussed a great term: #GlobalWeirding. Because human-caused #climate disruption is so much more than warming. It's the increased frequency & intensity of #extremeweather #heavyrain #Heatwaves #Wildfires #drought #flooding and more.
I explained why #greenhouse gases or #GHGs are not a great term for the public and why I prefer heat-trapping #pollution - it explains the mechanism.

Have you read the @LancetCountdown’s new report on health and climate change? Check out @UHF_groups’ key takeaways 🧵👇
1) Climate change is impacting weather, #ecosystems, and human systems. This poses a threat to human #health. For example, young children, older people, and marginalized communities are more susceptible to health risks associated with high temperatures and #heatwaves.
2) High temperatures can reduce the frequency and duration of physical activity. Without #exercise, people are at a higher risk for cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and other #NCDs.

This is hard to write but it is true for many. What I’m about to say is a harsh reality of what people go through.

What I am about to say is also the reason why a lot of people don’t ask for help.

People do not ask for help because of the fears and stigmas that exist.

Here Is Something to think about,

What if you were a #singleparent with a #child

You work full time for $15.00/hr

You take home roughly $960.00 per paycheck (bi-weekly after taxes)

#singleparent #parenting #Blessed #grateful #calgary #calgarylife #alberta #yyc

@EveryAlbertan
Your bills per month:

$1,000 or more for rent
$150 or more for cable/internet
$250 or more for utilities
$150 per month for car insurance

So let’s do the math

You bring home about
$1,920.00 a month

Your bills average about $1,500(give or take)

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…

I was grateful for the opportunity to discuss the impact of #ExtremeHeat on behavior & #MentalHealth with @kare11 on behalf of @HennepinHC on Friday.

A brief #tweetorial on some other important details that weren’t able to be included in the segment.🧵

google.com/amp/s/www.kare…
Hotter temperatures are associated with changes in behavior such as increases in violence, aggression, & impulsivity. #ClimateChange is increasing temperatures & it is predicted that we will see more violence & conflict as #HeatWaves increase. 2/9

Regarding mental health, #HeatWaves are also associated with increased #SuicideRisk & psychiatric hospitalizations. 3/9

Did you start experiencing scorching summer heat from the very beginning of March 2021? Did you feel this March was much hotter than it usually is? If so, your instincts were spot on.

#HeatWave
Last month, the country recorded an average maximum temperature of 32.65°C, which makes March 2021 the third warmest March India has endured in the past 121 years—since record-keeping began!

This is critical.

Sea surface temperatures have entered a realm of truly exceptional warmth.

The Arctic has been hammered by extreme warmth for months. The ongoing #heatwaves are adding to the growing problems.

[Yep, another thread]
Maybe things are balanced by colder seas if we look at the other side of northern hemisphere?

Nope.

Just watch this until the end.
This comes at a time where emerging trends show us the Arctic is warming 3.8 times faster than the rest of the globe.

Check out this mesmerising, yet harrowing, representation of reality...
