#climatechange🌍🌡 is the greatest threat to human #health👩⚕️. 
Here are 5 ways climate change is impacting our health and how the future could look like if no action is taken. 
A 🧵. 1/11

1. Extreme Heat🌡: Heat waves are deadly⚰. One study attributed more than 1/3 of heat-related deaths to climate change. Future warming could result in an additional 2K - 10K deaths/year in each of 209 U.S. cities. 2/11
Heart attacks & strokes can result from prolonged exposure to heat. The heart has to work harder to pump blood and minerals are lost through sweat. Extreme heat can also worsen pre-existing conditions such as kidney damage, especially for vulnerable populations such as 👴👵. 3/11

"L'Istituto per gli studi sulla sicurezza nazionale di Tel Aviv ha recentemente pubblicato un rapporto allarmante che avverte delle terribili conseguenze per la Striscia di #Gaza a seguito della crisi climatica. Il rapporto, pubblicato anche da Ynet, ⬇2
espone dati allarmanti sulle miserevoli condizioni della popolazione civile palestinese di #Gaza e suggerisce una serie di possibili misure per fermarne il deterioramento.

"Il #5giugno di ogni anno ricorre la #giornatamondialedellambiente , la giornata delle Nazioni Unite (ONU) che incoraggia la consapevolezza e l'azione a livello mondiale per proteggere l'ambiente. Il tema di quest'anno è "Solo una Terra". ⬇2
In #Palestina, questa giornata arriva in un momento dove l'impatto negativo del regime coloniale e dell'apartheid di Israele sull'ambiente sta diventando sempre più evidente.

Ciò vale in particolare per la Striscia di #Gaza, ⬇3

The world, this beautiful planet, wastes away
while humans, beings of destruction
do nothing.
The sun is setting on our day.
Meanwhile, the Earth shakes with rage.
Time is all we had; time is running out.

1/7
The Earth, this beautiful planet, pushes us out.
Like a bullied child, she's running away
in a fit of rage.
She runs from us, from our destruction.
As day falls to day,
we still do nothing.

#ClimateActionNow #savetheplanet
We’ve all heard scientists and politicians claim that climate change is causing a global crisis. It’s also no secret that humans are guilty of climate change.
Carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (NO), and water vapor are the principal greenhouse gases responsible for the increasing temperature on our planet.

So you've made that critical, brave decision to step up to the greatest challenge in human history. A #ClimateActionHero is always born asking the exact same question as those born before:

"So...what the heck do I do now?"

Take heart.

You're not alone.

This 🧵's for you
Answering a call to action (after first ignoring or refusing it) is textbook superhero origin story material, which means the first steps of your adventure are already taken. But Climate's been in popular culture since 2006. Something specific's compelling you now. What is it? /2
Something drove the point home to you. Activated you. Take a moment and enshrine it because you'll be explaining it time and time again, to allies, detractors, society's gate-keepers and even future #ClimateActionHeroes just like you. It's #TheBigWhy & every hero's got one /3

C'mere #GenZ I be needing you to teach me some #21stCentury colloquial slang language so I can impress my grandsons. The other day my 16 year old complained that his parents were too strict and I said, "It do be like that sometimes, Homie." He said, "You speak my language? Cool!" Image
#DoBeDoBeDo two hundred thousand words in the English language, and more every day, we'll never live long enough to learn them all!
I might use some of this new lingo in tweets too, but only if I'm talking to #GenZ because others may not understand the references. I do want to talk to #GenZ because they are the ones who saved us from a second term for #TheHateYam & they must do it again. We must #PassTheTorch

Trump has done so much to wreck America, it's easy to lose sight of the fact he's destroying the planet, too.

I discuss what it will take to #SaveThePlanet with Charles Alexander, the award-winning journalist who edited TIME's 1989 "Planet of the Year": thedailyedge.substack.com/p/the-planet-a…
In Part 2 of this interview, I ask Charles Alexander about the impact of climate denial in the media, the risk of “climate complacency” in 2020, his thoughts on the global #ClimateAction youth movement—and the kind of planet his grandchildren will inherit. thedailyedge.substack.com/p/the-planet-a…
Trump has made dismantling federal climate policies a centerpiece of his administration. A new analysis finds those rollbacks add up to a lot more planet-warming emissions.

Vote like 7.8 billion lives depend on it. #ClimateCrisis #ClimateVoter nytimes.com/interactive/20…

This is one of the paintings from the ‘Water Lillies’ series with oil on canvas by the French Impressionist painter, Claude Monet. This was painted by him between 1914 - 1917, when the First World War was ravaging ImageImageImageImage
Between 1914 till his death in 1926, Monet completed 200 paintings (mostly large canvases)!!!He apparently painted quickly during summers when the light was good and filled in the details during winters, not letting his failing vision come in the way of such dynamic creativity
When asked how could he continue painting during such devastation, Monet said, “it’s the best way to avoid thinking of these sad times. All the same, I feel ashamed to think about my little researches into form and colour while so many people are suffering and dying for us.”

"WE ABSOLUTELY DO NOT LIKE WHAT WE SEE THERE"

Natalia Shakhova doesn't agree with the #ipcc, which doesn't take the ESAS risk into account for calculating the various #RCP ..or any feedback loops including #CH4

Dangers of the sea: with impending #Monsoons, fishing communities across #India tie up their boats. All along the #Indian #coastline, #boats of different dimensions and #colours, await the #dark #clouds to wreck havoc on their #home - the #sea ImageImage
The #rainyseason recharges #water & #human bodies, but the #fishingcommunities have no #income.They would have had to save enough to tide them through. They spend this time with their families,repairing boats,fishing nets& specialise in #hunting small #crustacean close to #shore ImageImage
No #freshcatch is served in #restaurants on #coastline but no one’s complaining as we care for our fishing communities&this is rare opportunity for expressing that concern.in #Monsoon we stand together,waiting quietly for the storms,the rains - nature’s fury& #beauty

#tesla @Tesla $tsla $tslaq To be pursuasive, we need more than facts!!
