Hautes pressions atmosphériques, peu voire pas de pluie et de vent... La France est concernée depuis plusieurs jours par un "blocage anticyclonique", sorte de "bouclier qui empêche toute perturbation d’entrer" et accentue les épisodes de #pollution.

Les très hautes pressions bloquent l’air au sol, et donc les polluants qu’il contient. L'absence ou la quasi absence de pluie et de vent fait que les particules de pollution ne sont pas "captées" par les gouttes d'eau ni balayées, en quelque sorte.

S’ajoute à cela la saison hivernale, qui constitue un facteur aggravant. "On a davantage de nuits froides, ce qui incite les gens à vouloir se chauffer chez eux". Or, le chauffage au bois génère beaucoup de particules fines PM2,5 et de PM10.

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…

Good morning #medtwitter! Today #scientissimum would like to show you a #publichealth case of poor working conditions. Did you know that according to @WHO almost 2million people die from work-related causes each year? 450,000 deaths were related to workplace air #pollution 💨
(particulate matter, gases, and fumes). Any #job in the world has a meaning, whether you are a #doctor, #constructionworker or #janitor - each plays a very important role in the #society. However, no money in the world can ever buy the #health you need to continue #living and
and enjoying your #life. #Work smart and don’t expose yourselves to the dangerous situations, that may lead to the tragic outcomes!🦺

#Forests are a common good, and they benefit everyone.

Healthy, intact forests are essential for #Biodiversity, the climate, and Indigenous Peoples and forest-dependent communities around the world who rely on them for their lives, livelihoods, and cultural survival. Image
Protecting forests is essential if governments and institutions want to truly address the triple planetary crisis — #ClimateChange, #Biodiversity loss, & #Pollution — and achieve their global climate & environmental goals.
The onslaught of illegal logging, together with agricultural deforestation and climate-fueled wildfires, is destroying forests, affecting biodiversity, and turning forests from carbon sinks into carbon bombs.

Fourth post in the #WildlifeWeek series. Today’s post is more of a #reviving one than #reintroduction.

Day 4 – Return of the #bandits to #Chambal !

The Red Crowned Roofed #turtle is a #species of #freshwater turtle endemic to South #Asia.
Historically the species was widespread in the #Ganga River, both in #India and #Bangladesh. Extirpated from most of its former range but currently it has dwindled a last surviving population of less than 500 adult individuals in the #wild.
Their population reduced drastically due to depredation of eggs and hatchlings by Golden #jackals, #habitat degradation due to #pollution and illegal sand mining in the floodplains. They are also extensively #poached for their meat and shell.
