2/“By drilling into sediment cores 100s of feet beneath Antarctica’s sea floor, scientists discovered that during previous periods of global warming—3M & 15M yrs ago—loose sediment layers formed & slipped, sending massive tsunami waves to the shores of S America, NZ & SE Asia.”
3/“Weak layers beneath 3 submarine landslides, consist of…oozes & glaciomarine diamicts. The lithological differences, from glacial to interglacial variations in biological productivity, ice proximity & circulation, caused changes in deposition preconditioning slope failure.”

Highly problematic graphic by @VisualCap .

Blaming Asia for the plastic pollution crisis is a form of #environmentalracism and creates a false narrative about who is responsible for producing #plasticwaste.

Key narratives we need to confront at all times 🧵
♻️ We need drastic, scalable interventions to reduce, reuse and better manage #plastic across ALL economies.

🏭 Burning plastic [#incineration and waste-to-energy] are not acceptable solutions to the plastic crisis.
🚢 Exporting waste from wealthier nations to under-resourced nations is a form of #wastecolonialism and #environmentalracism.

🛍 The biggest #polluters are the corporations producing and marketing plastic which are headquartered in the global north.

They’ll tell you that ‘we’ the fishermen and our families are labour activists. They’ll tell you that Labour have brainwashed and coerced us. ‘We’ are forcing an anti-freeport agenda. That they’re using us for their political gains.
Shame on them: exploiting political conflict for their own motives to make themselves sleep better at night.

They haven’t. We are not any one political party and we have our own voice - and their voice does not represent ours.
Their empty requests for financial report are a haphazard launched into the abyss so satisfy the media frenzy, to acknowledge that they were never going to consider anything but their own agenda. As if it ever could…

Ready for some surf and turf?

Did you know that there are waves which have a square shape?

Here is a thread 🧵 dedicated to some of the unique & fascinating waves found on earth 🌊🏖️

Square waves are periodic waves that have a sharp, abrupt transition between the high and low points of the waveform. They are characterized by their flat, straight tops and are often used in electronic and electrical engineering. #squarewaves #Engineering ImageImage
Point / Reef/ Beach break waves: waves that break at a specific point along the coast. They are formed when the wave direction is perpendicular (point break) or parallel (reef & beach break) to the coastline & can create long, peeling rides for surfers Image

#PuertoRico #Castles #travelphotography #SanJuan: Castillo San Felipe del Morro / El Morro astonishes. It is a massive triangular fortress draped guarding the harbor. It may be the second largest fortress in the entire New World, second only to nearby Castillo San Cristobal. 1/
2/ #UNESCO El Morro five tiers of wedding cake #ramparts must soar up to 100 feet above the #ocean. The Spanish started construction in 1539. To enter, one crosses a splendid multi-acre lawn on the landward approach they deliberately cleared of all obstacles.
3/ El Morro's original pierced windowless guard towers are named "garitas". (I use "margarita" as a mnemonic...). We also saw many 3' long iguanas: one on the giant exterior lawn and at least 10 more in the dry moat. They love eating the weeds/clovers.

🚨🌍 Global Carbon Budget 2022, out now!🌍🚨

It provides the latest update on how we humans have tampered with Earth's remarkable system of #carbon stocks and flows.

So what are the take-homes from our latest update?

@gcarbonproject @PFriedling
It's a story of persistent high global #CO2 emissions, but with some hints (and some hope!) that *total* human #emissions are levelling off.

(Although with considerable uncertainty in the land use change emissions).
But did anyone mention that we need to get that red line 👆 to hit zero to meet the commitments made in #Paris?

🚨Paper Alert🚨

Marine protected areas #MPAs are increasingly promoted as #ocean-based #solution to #ClimateChange, but their contribution to climate change #adaptation and #mitigation remains contentious. Our meta-analysis of 22,403 papers brings clarity. Link below.

🙈Spoiler alert🙉

#FullyProtected #MPAs can can significantly enhance:

©️ carbon sequestration
🌊 coastal protection
🐟 biodiversity
🐡 reproductive capacity of marine organisms
🎣 fishers’ catch
💰 fishers’ income

We identified the potential “climate pathways” through which #MPAs could contribute to #ClimateChange #mitigation and #adaptation. First along mitigation and adaptation dimensions, and then distinguishing among #ecological and #social dimensions of adaptation.

🚀 We are live! Here is the correct streaming link for all of today's discussions and performances, starting with a panel on complex time with David Krakauer, James Gleick, Ted Chiang, and David Wolpert in a few moments (measured linearly...):

"One of the ideas we had with #InterPlanetary was, 'What would it take to make science hedonistic? And instead of telling people to do it, you'd have to tell people to STOP doing it?"

- SFI President David Krakauer sets the tone for this weekend's celebrations
#IPFest Image
David Krakauer: "Do you have a favorite model or metaphor for #time?"

@JamesGleick: "You've already mentioned a river; that's everybody's favorite. Borges said time is a tiger. People talk about it as a thread. We ONLY talk about time in metaphors." Image

Oct 12 2022: "Deep-sea miner stock jumps after first seafloor collection since 1970s"

"The fields in the CCZ represent the largest known, undeveloped #nickel resource on the planet & is estimated to contain over 3 times the amount of #cobalt, almost 2 x the amount of nickel & as much #manganese as all global land-based reserves, combined."

#Privatization of the #oceans will allow for ocean exploration & deep sea #mining - both essential for the fourth industrial revolution infrastructure desired by the ruling class technocrats. #4IR #EVs #Salesforce

THREAD - You're likely to see the hashtag #BBNJ pop up on yr screen in the next 2 weeks. It refers to Biodiversity Beyond National Jurisdiction - the #HighSeas, the portion of ocean that lies beyond the Exclusive Economic Zone of coastal States - 200 nautical miles. Boring? Wait!
THREAD CONTINUES 2/2 - The term #BBNJ used by #ocean policy nerds may sound boring or complicated to laypersons, but you'll realize it's a very big deal when you know that the #highseas represent 64% of the global ocean, less than 45% of our entire planet! [To follow...]
THREAD CONTINUES (3) - Humankind has been interacting with the #HighSeas for a long time, but our impact has increased in recent times. We've been sailing and shipping stuff across the high seas since time immemorial.

The Arctic is warming faster than anywhere else on the planet, and its wildlife is being slowly poisoned by industrial toxins brought over by the wind and currents.

Scientists around the world are trying to figure out why 🧵
🇳🇴 The town of Longyearbyen in Svalbard, a Norwegian archipelago in the Arctic Ocean, is known as one of the best places to see the Northern Lights.

But it’s also the fastest warming town on Earth.
Founded as a mining town in the early 1900s, Longyearbyen still has a mine and a coal-fired power station - the last in Norway 🏭

But things are about to change as the town prepares to fully shift to renewables in the coming years.

Our paper is out!
Current #adaptation projects do not automatically enhance #gender equality | need to be intentionally brought in at planning & implementation stages.

23authors|9sectors|17739 literature|countless meetings

Delighted to have brainstormed👇figure with @Joyashree9
Embedding gender considerations and facilitating #women’s participation in project design and implementation along with #inclusive #policies, training, information access, planning, and monitoring is needed
Additional course correction for #SDG5 is needed.
Our #SDG5plus (SDG5+) approach takes into consideration #intersectionality and gender aspects beyond #women alone, & can help #adaptation actions move towards meeting #genderequality and other #climatejustice goals.
