Interesting article on #flooding and infrastructure in Orange County, #Florida…
neighbors (want) "answers about what’s being done to prevent another flood, after their homes went underwater for the second time in five years."
"There’s a $10 million plan that was drafted after Hurricane Irma in 2017 to address flooding...", however, the "county says this plan would still be limited and it wouldn’t prevent the kinds of flood Orlo Vista saw during Ian."

#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
#climatechange #globalwarming #savetheplanet #climate #climatecrisis #climatechangeisreal
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

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.🇮🇳🌏♻️
#ClimateReport #IPCC #IPCCReport
🔗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

I was live on @BBCNews last night talking about the language of #climate change. Here's a thread of short clips. First, I was asked to address what we call it: #ClimateChange #ClimateCrisis #ClimateEmergency #GlobalWarming Great to talk with @bbcdavideades!
Then we discussed a great term: #GlobalWeirding. Because human-caused #climate disruption is so much more than warming. It's the increased frequency & intensity of #extremeweather #heavyrain #Heatwaves #Wildfires #drought #flooding and more.
I explained why #greenhouse gases or #GHGs are not a great term for the public and why I prefer heat-trapping #pollution - it explains the mechanism.

The first nor’easter of the season may become the third bomb cyclone in a matter of days to affect the continental U.S., and it will usher in miserable conditions. ⛈💨 Check out our thread below to find out more: ⬇️…
2. The storm has been categorized as a nor'easter since it will be spreading northeasterly winds along the coast and is the first such storm of the season to impact the region. 💨…
3. Like the "bomb cyclones" in the Pacific this week, the nor'easter could undergo a period of rapid intensification known as bombogenesis:…

I’m going go out on a limb here and say someone in this highlighted area is probably going to get a foot plus of rain tomorrow. Not widespread to be clear but isolated totals 12”+ are definitely reasonable. I’ll explain below👇 #pawx #njwx #ida #rain #flooding
As Ida will be undergoing baroclinic process and transitioning from a tropical depression into a extratropical storm we’ll actually see some similarities to a winter storm. Warm air advection will be playing a part in aiding Frontogenesis tomorrow across the Northeast as…
The contrast in temperature as noted in the pictures will create an enhanced area of lift. Along the edge of those juiciest dewpoints and under the FGEN setup that is where a combination of the best forcing along with moisture content will be aiding in producing anomalous…

One of my main contributions to the #IPCCReport was to coordinate the Frequently Asked Questions.
With @nigelhawtin @TomMaycock @connorsSL @MelichatGo and the authors, we've produced 34 1-page explainers + figure on important climate concepts.
👉… Image
In the coming weeks, I'll try to share the main findings from the FAQs.
1/ for the 1st time, #ClimateReport says that human influence on the climate is an established fact. To support this, we show the many consistent lines of evidence showing that the world is warming /FAQ2.2 Image
2/ from FAQ2.2, we know that the climate is changing. The observed warming since 1850 (black) can *only* be explained by human activities (grey: red + blue). Natural causes (green) have had a limited effect
PS: climate simulations are very close to observations /FAQ3.1 Image
