1/5 Rising temps in the North Atlantic are more than just a climate change indicator - they pose real threats to human life. Let’s talk about why. #ClimateChange #NorthAtlantic
2/5 First, warmer waters can fuel more intense storms and hurricanes, increasing risks for coastal communities globally. This means higher potential for loss of life and property damage. #ExtremeWeather
3/5 Second, thermal expansion from warmer waters contributes to sea level rise. This could lead to increased coastal erosion and flooding, displacing people from their homes and affecting livelihoods. #SeaLevelRise

🧵🌡️🔥 Heat & Heat Safety Twitter Series! 🔥🌡️

As temperatures rise due to climate change, it's vital to understand the impact of heat and prioritize our safety. In this series, we'll explore various aspects of heat and practical tips for safety. Let's dive into 4 info sections:

Learn how heat and humidity work together, the complications of heat, humidity, and direct sunlight, the rise in temperatures caused by climate change, and the significance of wet bulb temperature.
Heat and humidity go hand in hand. Humidity makes it harder for our bodies to cool down through sweat evaporation, making us feel hotter and more uncomfortable. #HeatUnderstanding

For the last few months, students at UBC Climate Justice Research Collaborative worked with us to create a story map that details the major concerns with TMX and charts the fight to stop it.

Ahead of the #CouncilOfEuropeSummit, CIEL, @Greenpeace, @amnesty & @hrw joined forces to call on @coe Member States to recognize the right to a #HealthyEnvironmentForAll through the drafting of a dedicated protocol to the @ECHR_CEDH


A🧵 Image
On May 16-17, @coe nations will gather for a once-in-a-generation Summit in Reykjavik 🇮🇸.

This is an opportunity for European States to reaffirm their commitment to core European values, including the rule of law, democracy, & #HumanRights.
But doing so will require more than a family photo featuring heads of State: States should use this opportunity to fill a yawning gap in the European human rights framework & take a decisive step towards effectively protecting the right to a #HealthyEnvironmentForAll. Image

1/12 Here is our very useful series of cards, we handed out to people at @StanChart - everyone was very keen to collect all 12 . We're looking forward to hearing which one was the most useful #ClimateAction ImageImage
2/12 Could this be a regular excuse often heard inside @StanChart to delay climate action? ImageImage
3/12 We have a feeling this card may have proved very useful inside @StanChart . Let us know 🤔 ImageImage

Today, in England, millions of voters make a choice in their #LocalElections2023. It’s a good time to share some new research that is related to two policy issues that will have touched many people over the last year: the #energycrisis & #crime.
🧵⬇️ Image
In a nutshell, the paper shows that much of the widely reported surge in burglaries & anti-social behaviour could have been avoided, had the government provided more targeted energy price subsidies or had UK invested more in making homes more energy efficient. Last summer, ... ImageImageImageImage
I modelled the impact of the energy price shock down to the property level for millions of homes. More #energyinefficient homes would see a bigger increase. Part of this work was reported in @FT as an interactive story…. This set up a framework to study... Image

1/ Really important new report on climate change and children’s health today from @EPA - it’s not an easy report to read, but it’s a necessary one.…
2/ We know that children are uniquely vulnerable to climate change, because their bodies are still growing and developing. And health impacts during childhood can affect an entire lifetime.
3/ The report anticipates potential climate impacts for children in the US at 2 and 4 degrees of warming - we don’t know exactly when these levels of warming will happen, some estimates suggest we’ll reach 2 degrees of warming by 2040. (My own kids will be 24 in 2040.)

🧵Tens of thousands of people have been out on the streets of London since Friday, calling for #ClimateAction.

@morss_alex has been monitoring media coverage.

If you get your news from TV, broadsheets or tabloids, chances are you won't have heard anything about #TheBigOne.
But although you didn't hear about the tens of thousands of people protesting in London, chances are that you did hear about that one guy who jumped on a #snooker table in Sheffield.

None of this remotely surprising. It's yet another example of the #ActivistsDilemma in action. Image
When non-activists criticise groups like JSO for engaging in disruptive protest it's common for them to say they don't mind protest if it's done in a way that doesn't affect people going about their business. That's what activists have been doing this weekend. It doesn't work.

Genom aktionen vill rörelsen förmedla att det är orimligt att fossilindustrin tillåts fortsätta att bränna ungas chanser till en värdig framtid, trots att samhället har det som krävs för att ställa om.
Trafiken på in- och utfarten till en bränsleterminal i hamnen i Göteborg blockeras nu av tonåringar och personer i tjugoårsåldern. 13 personer är på plats och 6 personer sitter i blockaden, som nu stoppar flera tankbilar. Image

On #ClimateAction.

Africa can lead a revolutionary approach to climate change. One that recognizes Climate Action as the job engine for Africa. James Mwangi and his colleagues at Climate Action Platform Africa have presented this compelling point of view.
They argue that instead of pushing the narrative of Africa as a victim and or insisting on business-as-usual growth which would make Africa a big future emitter...
Africa should instead take the lead in tackling climate change leveraging on its renewable energy potential, young workforce, green technologies, carbon removal and green manufacturing.

Today is a BIG day for #ClimateJustice with not one but two critical developments at international institutions advancing efforts to clarify & enforce States’ #HumanRights obligations in the face of #ClimateChange.

Our reaction:…

A thread🧵👇
The 1⃣ critical development is the first-ever public hearings at the @ECHR_CEDH on climate cases addressing the duty of states to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, including a case brought by the @KlimaSeniorin against Switzerland.

The2⃣ development is the historic adoption by the #UNGA of a resolution calling upon the world’s highest court, @CIJ_ICJ, to issue an opinion on State legal responsibilities to protect the climate system for present & future generations & the consequences of failing to do so.

Today is a landmark day for #ClimateLitigation, for #HumanRights & for #ClimateJustice.

For the 1st time, the @ECHR_CEDH is holding two public hearings in #Climate cases.

CIEL's @duycks is in Strasbourg 🇫🇷 attending the hearings, follow him for updates from the ground.

What are these climate cases?

@KlimaSeniorin, @DamienCAREME & @Y4CJ_ are calling on the court to hold States accountable for not doing enough to protect their citizens from the impacts of climate change.
These are unprecedented hearings because the European Court of Human Rights will
👉 Address the duty of states to reduce greenhouse gas emissions,
👉 Clarify the link between #HumanRights and the climate crisis,
👉 Clarify States' obligations to #ActOnClimate.

Voici la centrale nucléaire d'#Emsland 🇩🇪
C'est une des meilleures centrales électriques du monde.
Du type #Konvoi à un réacteur, elle a été construite dans les délais et sous le budget en 5 ans, pour 3500 €/kW, et son exploitation a commencé 3 mois après la 1ère criticité. 🧵⤵️
D'une puissance de 1,4 GW, #Emsland a généré 93% de son maximum théorique sur sa durée de vie de 33 ans à ce jour, 11 TWh d'électricité par an, de quoi alimenter 3,5 millions de foyers, sans rejeter de CO2 ni de pollution.
Et elle pourrait probablement continuer à le faire pendant des décennies, évitant 10 millions de tonnes d'émissions de #CO2 chaque année, si le gouvernement allemand lui en laissait la possibilité.

La centrale d'#Emsland doit pourtant être arrêtée le 15 avril prochain.

Our new @NatureClimate paper just out! State-of-the-art estimates of economic impacts of climate change show that benefits of #ClimateAction outweigh the mitigation costs by a factor of 1.5 to 3.9 ➡️strong economic validation of #ParisAgreement 🔗 1/7
We combined climate impacts of
🟠sea-level rise,
🟡river floods,
🟢labour productivity,
🔵energy supply/demand,
🟤forestry and
⚫️road transportation
and transform this in financial costs. But not: ❌biodiversity loss❌health❌tipping points 2/7
For a 3°C scenario (RCP6.0, roughly current trend/baseline), economic impacts are 10-12% of GDP, with high regional differences. Even higher if sea-level rise adaptation is not optimal. 3/7

1/10 🇪🇹 Let's embark on an imaginative journey and explore how the administration of Eskinder Nega might have looked like if he were elected as the Prime Minister of Ethiopia. Keep in mind this is purely speculative! #EthiopianPolitics #AlternativeHistory
2/10 🕊️ Building Bridges: Nega's commitment to freedom of speech and democracy would likely drive his administration to prioritize national dialogue, bringing together various ethnic and political groups for peaceful discussions. #UnityInDiversity
3/10 🗳️ A New Era of Democracy: Electoral transparency could take center stage under Nega's administration, ensuring fair competition for all political parties. This might involve empowering the National Electoral Board and promoting voter education. #FreeAndFairElections

TODAY @IPCC_CH released its most comprehensive assessment of science of #ClimateChange, impacts & solutions.
This is not the first & won’t be the last wake-up call, but it’s a unique moment.
I was in Interlaken 🇨🇭 for the last 9 days.
Here’s a🧵with my take #ClimateReport👇 Image
Before I start... Let's step back 👣

Here's a @ciel_tweets & @BoellStiftung analysis on the @IPCC_CH's Synthesis Report #ClimateReport

If you missed it, that's a great starting point to understand what #AR6SYR is and why it matters:…
Negotiations of the Summary for Policymaker highlighted the clash between the indisputable #ClimateScience & mainstream economic models underpinning mitigation pathways, perpetuate a business-as-usual approach. Incredible work of CSOs put a spotlight on #FossilFuels. Image

"The pace and scale of what has been done, and current plans, are insufficient to tackle climate change. We are walking when we should be sprinting. Impacts include illness and death, damage global economy, threaten our life support system." H-S Lee, #IPCC #ClimateReport /2
Effective, equitable action now can lead to more sustainable, just world; benefits for people and nature. Many feasible and effective options. Must cut global GHG emissions by almost half by 2030 "if we want a chance to stay at/below 1.5°C" H-S Lee #IPCC #ClimateReport /3
