"Baseline scenarios without any new climate policies, and without the implementation of current pledges, lead to a median global warming of 3.3C-5.5C by 2100" says leaked draft of @IPCC_CH WG3 report summary out on Monday.
And, the longer we wait the harder it gets. UpSum - we need to go further, faster, NOW. And that's just looking at the 1.5C-2C range. No more than 1.5 is harder still.
#BuiltEnvironment needs: Fewer new buildings, #RetroFirst, more efficient, fossil free existing buildings, with active energy (renewables & demand flexibility) in green, connected walkable neighbourhoods says report. @ActiveBuildingC @UKGBC @ArchitectsJrnal

Only a few days into @COP26, we’re already hearing global commitments and plans. This will all culminate in a day dedicated to the built environment next week. In the meantime, I’ll share my #COP26 thoughts in this thread.
I encourage you all to explore this wonderful virtual exhibition of the world's greenest buildings at @COP26. These projects serve as examples to all of us in the real estate and building sectors. @wef weforum.org/agenda/2021/11…
As I’ve said many times, @COP26 must be a turning point for the real estate industry. Buildings are responsible for 40% of carbon emissions worldwide. Action from this industry is crucial to meeting climate goals. businessinsider.com/sustainable-co…

@HarvardHealth tells us how #COVID19 is spread. “Aerosols are emitted by a person infected with coronavirus when they talk, breathe, cough, or sneeze. Another person can breathe in these aerosols and become infected with the virus.” #ph260720
health.harvard.edu/diseases-and-c…
Do you know what an aerosol is? Choose the definition below:
1. A substance that is stored in a can
2. Tiny particles or droplets suspended in air
3. A chemical
#ph260720 #aerosoltransmission
Aerosol can be generated from coughing, sneezing, talking, breathing, and other sources (specifically in surgery) like burning of tissue and sawing of bones. #ph260720 #aerosoltransmission

seeing as we can't talk about other things on here today 😬 & given that I've spent the past week poring over the #TeTārukeāTāwhiri: #Auckland's #Climate Plan text again, I thought you might be interested in a few key parts of the Plan that are often overlooked.
1/x
👏👍🎉🌏💪
first off, why Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri?
a gift from the mana whenua of Tāmaki, this cultural narrative is deeply emebedded in this place, but critically "...calls for a change in our response, from a human-centred approach to an ecological-centred approach..." 2/x
Mana Whenua, through the Kaitiki Forum, have played a key role in developing our #ClimateAction response, drawing together wisdom & knowledge of Tāmaki w/ the understanding that living systems & #whakapapa relationships are key to #wellbeing, #sustainability & #resilience. 3/x

1/5 Healthy environments isn’t a new concept in #publichealth. Over the last century, improving sanitation, infrastructure planning, and addressing residential overcrowding reduced infectious disease rates in Canada and elsewhere.
2/5 Even now, in the midst of the #COVID19 pandemic, we see examples of municipal leadership adapting city infrastructure in ways that encourage outdoor social and physical activities. #HealthyCommunities #BuiltEnvironment #BuildUp
3/5 During #COVID19 many communities have closed selected streets to traffic, allowing pedestrians and cyclists to exercise outdoors safely. #HealthyCommunities #BuiltEnvironment #Innovation

1/4 #GOC Canada Healthy Communities Initiative will provide funding to small-scale, local projects that help adapt public spaces and places to the healthy living needs of their communities during these unprecedented times.

2/4 As I noted in my first annual report as Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer, changes to our built environment can help us prevent chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease and also improve our mental wellbeing.

3/4 While specific projects will vary based on community needs and proposals, they will share a common objective: to ensure physical and social environments enable us to easily, and accessibly, follow #publichealth measures...

1/3: I need to add @julia_watson_'s book to my list. Indigenous technologies are often forms of #biomimicry that are already tried and true. Could even view adapting forms of indigenous technologies as a type of biomimicry itself. #builtenvironment

2/3: I bet one could also view contextual applications of Lo-TEK as an outcome of, or partially constrained by, indigenous communities unknowing applications of Elinor #Ostrom's 8 principles in their efforts to protect local "commons" for the long term good of the communities.
3/3: That would be an interesting set of studies, knowing that our contemporary environments often unwittingly work against these principles (also divorcing of from the rest of the natural world in the process).
