1/n 📢🧵: The @IPCC_CH launched their new report (WG2-AR6) this week, exploring the impacts of #climate risks, #adaptation & vulnerability. Here are some insights on the key takeaways for #India.🇮🇳🌏♻️

🔗Read Asia Ch. 10 ➡️ Image
2/n #India🇮🇳 is at risk of multiple #climaticrisks, many of which are accelerating in frequency & intensity. Rising temp.🌡️are likely to cause severe heat stress in summer, esp. in cities where temp.🌡️can be more than 2℃ warmer than the surroundings due to heat island effects. Image
3/n Extreme rainfall events are projected to lead to more frequent #flooding in settlements near vulnerable rivers & flood risks across the country will become more frequent & severe. Higher than 🌏 mean sea level rise for #Asia’s coasts exposes 🇮🇳’s large coastal population. Image

Words we don't want to see in a paper on EU climate impact risks in intl. trade, finance and EU society: Nascent or embryonic research area.
Yet here we… So EU piles up trade agreements, thus expanding risks, but won't request & include risk research?!
So what's…?
It's a grainy ultrasound😁of the embryonic research area. Three teams review existing lit. on #climaterisks in EU society, intl. finance and trade and enrich the findings w/ new data.
FYI: search for #climaterisks only gets 29 hits on Twitter🤯 ImageImageImage
Wrt trade they state
"we align the contribution of imported material with EU27 primary production, i.e. removing any processed material production that may itself depend on imported material"
Dangerously simplified. It makes us blind precisely IN the context of globalised trade:

@CFASocietyDC @andytuit @SRI_Natives the real question today is not what is the future of ESG, the question is:

Is there a future w/out the #ESG?, say Catherine Banat @rbcgamnews introducing the panel

(a very good, visionary start! 👍)

Investor Group on Climate Change (over trillion$$): institutional investors “increasingly interested in whether industry associations were supporting or undermining climate action,” because...…
...“climate change is a core financial risk for investors and a systemic risk to the financial system and the economy.” #ClimateRisks
For the record, @USChamber (aka #ChamberofCarbon) & NAM are two industry associations “undermining” worse than anyone in America, per @InfluenceMap. I repeat: the WORST. Could you investors be a little bit more than just “interested”? #ClimateRisks

Last year, Hurricane Florence tore through NC. Hurricane Michael ripped through FL. And floods put Plains states like NE underwater. It will cost US taxpayers billions of dollars just to repair three bases because of those storms. #climatecosts…
The climate crisis poses an existential threat to our country & our planet. We see #climaterisks every day: record floods. Devastating wildfires. Monster storms. It jeopardizes our air, water, homes, businesses, food, infrastructure, economy, & national security. #climatecosts
Even some giant multinational corporations are starting to disclose to their shareholders that climate change will have an enormous effect on their bottom line – & I have a bill to force them all to fess up. #climatecosts…

Even @USATODAY is starting to pay attention to #ClimateRisks. (BTW its editorial page did a great editorial some time ago.) The problem is that forces we set in motion today will have this effect in later years. It’s on us to act.…
A glimmer from the @washingtonpost editorial page, too.…
But the climate-denying @WSJ editorial page can’t resist publishing another crank. Unbelievable. Literally. We need good coverage of the threat sea level rise poses to property values, and our entire economy. #ClimateCosts…

Increasing #ClimateRisks are forcing the insurance industry to recalculate. Climate change may be gradual, but its market effects are volatile. What we are doing currently — nothing—will cost us big.…
Look at Texas. The annual probability of a Texas storm dropping 20 inches of rain is expected to rise from 1% to 18%. When insurance companies get scared, that’s a pretty good sign that we should be too. #ClimateCosts…
Where does this end? For some coastal areas, insurance companies stop offering protection all together. Homeowners will be left on their own to deal with the #ClimateCosts.

We know the consequences of climate inaction:
1⃣#ClimateRisk becomes uninsurable leading to crisis in insurance markets.
2⃣Sudden collapse of coastal property values when markets react to #ClimateRisks of rising sea levels.
