Recent research analyzed "future wildfires burned areas & C emissions under #SolarGeoengineering & Shared Socioeconomic pathways (SSPs) scenarios & assessed how the different geoengineering approaches impact #fires."

Results are discussed in a 🧵 below ⬇️:

The major conclusions and implications drawn from this study are as follows:
1️⃣ "The global total #wildfire burned A is projected to rise under the unmitigated scenario (SSP5-8.5) & drop under the 2 #geoengineering scenarios (#SolarIrradianceReduction & #StratosphericSulfateAerosols) based on a comparison of the averages of 2091–2100 as to 2021–2030."

Over 100 #Wildfires Burn Across #Trudeau-#UNfriendly Province, #Alberta | May 7
- A reminder that an #election approaches in this province, and that Danielle #Smith, the relatively new premier, has been a major #critic of the Trudeau government.… Image

I know, it’s just pure coincidence the province with 1.7 trillion barrels of #oil, with a premier who said they would get rid of the #carbontax, who said no to the fed #gun grab and who said no to the Fed interfering with resource devt
cc: @ WhiteCrkLumber
The forest #fires in #Alberta are serious, all the jibber jabber from the left blaming #Smith or the Forestry is just that, J-j. In Modern history never have so many fires started at all once so close to so many communities.

Very proud of this team effort "A regional integrated assessment of the impacts of #climatechange and of the potential #adaptation avenues for #Quebec’s #forests" is now published

A (very long) thread. Buckle up!…

@cflscf @NRCan

First, I would like to acknowledge the work of all my colleagues including Jesus, Annie Claude, Yves, @mariehbrice, @DominicCyr, Louis, Daniel, @GauthierSylvie9 , Pierre, @Guillemette_L , Mathieu, Maryse, Tadeusz, Martin-Hugues, @ethiffault , @Tremblay_Jun and Stephen
Quebec’s #forests goes from northern hardwood with sugar #maple, beech, hemlock in the south, to pure boreal black #spruce forests up north. Natural #disturbances, go from single-tree windthrow or mortality in the south, to large stand-replacing #fires in the north.

🟢Back to the Area 🟢 to collect follow up samples in & around #EastPalestine #Ohio. This is our team's 4th trip to the area since mid-February. Updates will be posted below.

Also looking forward to the #science & community sharing event in the coming weeks (in the works).

Visited a home today along Sulfur Run.

It’s still contaminated.

After moving rocks, the PID read 2.1 ppm (not ppb) coming off the creek.

Background in air was 0-3 ppb
Contractors (paid by someone) seem to have left garbage in Sulfur Run. They didn’t clean up. You can’t tell me the sorbent pad is going to be used again.

Who is overseeing them?

Today, at 10am EST the U.S. Senate @EPWCmte holds a hearing about the #chemicalspill #fires #disaster caused in #EastPalestine #Ohio in Room SD-406

Will officials by asked why they’re not testing for chemicals we found? Officials lack full transparency.
This isn’t a classic chemical spill. Officials set hazardous chemicals -on fire- likely creating 100s-1000s of other materials.

You have to throw the kitchen sink at the chemical screening /identification problem. They have not done that, yet.

Officials must course correct.
When you review the county drinking water well testing data they didn’t test for a number of the chemicals in the creek.

So, what was the purpose of testing? Spending that $? Telling residents water is safe?

Why did these agencies choose not to be thorough in their approach?

🚨 Field Work, March 3-4, 2023 🚨

This week @PurdueAg @PurdueEngineers Prof. @caitlin_h2o, as well as students Rasul & @aliya_ehde visited the #Ohio and #Pennsylvania to sample creeks and understand "what's changed since last week".

Observations are below.

During the trip, the team collected creek water from creeks upstream of the train derailment site, including in #Pennsylvania.

They also went to several other creeks in Ohio, no "sheens" were observed there.

It was pouring out....

Kudos to Professor @caitlin_h2o for leading the team... the #rain! 🌧️

Today, I asked @OSHA_DOL to deploy #worker safety teams to evaluate past/ongoing chemical exposures to cleanup workers in #EastPalestine #Ohio.

Worker and local air monitoring should be considered.

Review our Twitter thread for images and videos: Image
Unfortunately, there are some typos. I apologize.

I'm running on 4 hours sleep, but felt it was important to get this to OSHA ASAP.

🚨🌍 Global Carbon Budget 2022, out now!🌍🚨

It provides the latest update on how we humans have tampered with Earth's remarkable system of #carbon stocks and flows.

So what are the take-homes from our latest update?

@gcarbonproject @PFriedling
It's a story of persistent high global #CO2 emissions, but with some hints (and some hope!) that *total* human #emissions are levelling off.

(Although with considerable uncertainty in the land use change emissions).
But did anyone mention that we need to get that red line 👆 to hit zero to meet the commitments made in #Paris?

1/Thinking of #trees #peat #carbon and #nature and #fires. When are Victorians (without hysterics @theage ) to be made fully aware of the State #auslaws over fines in State Parks for picking up a rock, walking off track and so on. @DanielAndrewsMP/2
2/As it is now there are hundreds of shooting licensed people walking off track. Hundreds of thousands of feral deer, xrabbits,x pigs (latter two a food, anti #poverty source that cannot be culled by shooters) already damaging #native wildlife.Protecting #Indigenous locations/3
3/ @DanielAndrewsMP is key but to lock up (by fines) large areas is #segregation and discrimination. To lock up but then ok if you pay — is a cynical misuse of power. It would be good to hear from #Indigenous Victoria as we already know the value of the birthing trees was/4

#PlausibleWorstCaseScenario #ClimateCrisis
2019, 2020 and 2021 were ominous – but they barely touched the surface.
Expect more heatwaves, storms, floods, droughts. Watch as the Arctic and Antarctic continue to melt.

Coral Reef death escalates.

#PlausibleWorstCaseScenario #ClimateCrisis
Ice caps and glaciers lose cohesion. Water sources evaporate. Heatwaves, droughts and soil loss ratchet up.
Climate famines hit Africa, South Asia, South and Central America. Water is now the primary cause of war.

1. Firefighters in California are in a desperate battle to defend giant sequoias

Like glaciers or coral reefs, it is another example where climate change threatens some of the most beautiful sights on our planet.

Thread 🧵

#Sequoia #wildfires #California #ClimateCrisis

2. The changing climate changes the planet, including some of the most beautiful sights that you may see in your lives.

From the magnificent glaciers in the mountains to the coral reefs in the oceans, we destroy the most iconic examples of nature.…

3. I remember how amazed I was in the 1990s when seeing some of these enormous trees in California.

Standing on the forest floor and looking up, they seemed to grow into infinity.

🇧🇷📡This week, Brazil broke two more –rather alarming– records:

Historic increases in deforestation, and historic increases in land conflicts. Come with us to untangle the unfortunate record breaking track keeping environmental protectors awake at night🧵

The Pastoral Land Commission @cptnacional published its 2020 report. Violence in rural areas reached an all time high: 1576 occurrences of conflicts over land, since 1985, when the reporting began. Also a 25% increase to 2019 and 57.6% to 2018.
On Friday, we've learned that deforestation in the Amazon surpassed 1K km2 in a month for the first time since
@inpe_mct Deter-B started monitoring, in 2016. Also an increase of 41% to the same period in the previous year.… #ClimateEmergency

Not criticising a good deed, but there needs to be better education for drivers on how to respond to a vehicle #fires in road #tunnels. A 🧵

#firesafety #fireengineering #roadsafety #driving
Means of escape & access for the fire & rescue services are part of the design considerations for modern road tunnels.

For a single direction tunnel, the assumption is that drivers will stop before the fire & leave their vehicles, evacuating in the opposite direction.
It’s not a good idea to drive past the fire as smoke control systems will typically be designed to ventilate smoke in the direction of travel & protect the means of escape/firefighter access route.

Passing the fire can lead to you being trapped in hot smoke & unable to breath.

#Fires burn through the summers in most dry #forests of India till monsoon rains quench them. In the hills in Uttarakhand, in the Nilgiri plateau in Bandipur, now in Bandhavgarh #fires are making news in India. (Thread 1 of 4)
Fires can be set by locals for getting fresh grass for their livestock or to collect minor forest produce. They are also set by #foresters to manage grasslands to get fresh grass for wild ungulates or even to reduce dry tinder in forests (pix P Dwivedi) ( Thread 2 of 4).
Fires are also set to manage fires by setting them in opposing lines. In this landscape of fire and forest several species fall prey to the raging flames, especially amphibians, reptiles& ground dwelling birds or their chicks. Others make hay ( 3 of 4)

Extreme #Weather Events Like Devastating #Floods Cost #India $10 Billion, Finds UK Report…

(📸: C Suresh Kumar/TOI, BCCL, Chennai) Image
Fifteen extreme weather events, influenced by #climatechange, were identified globally this year, including the terrible #floods that struck India cost $10 billion, killing 2,000, a UK charity report said on Monday.

The #London-based Christian Aid's report, 'Counting the cost 2020: A year of climate breakdown', said 10 of those events cost $1.5 billion or more.The #US was hit by the highest costs due to the record-breaking #hurricane season and #fires.
