California’s Central Valley is as important to eaters as Hollywood is to moviegoers and Silicon Valley is to smartphone users. This jewel of the USA farm system produces almost all US almonds, walnuts, and pistachios; over 90% of broccoli, carrots, garlic, celery, grapes, ...
...tangerines, and artichokes; over 75% of cauliflower, apricots, lemons, strawberries, and raspberries; over 40% of lettuce, cabbage, oranges, peaches, and peppers; as well as more than 20% of milk production.

'Why don't they dredge the rivers?!', a comment I keep seeing on social media in response to recent #flooding. A thread:
1) Dredging is often not effective against floods. It is only useful if sediment has built up around a structure that cannot be modified or sediment is damaging a river which is currently undergoing work to return to a natural state (see reversing channel straightening).
2) The volume of water the past few days hugely exceeds any additional storage a dredged channel would have provided. Any unstable sediment from dredging would then be moved downriver and cause additional issues

Not sure how on the radar this is for you but the #Chinaflooding season starts in 13 days and it’s already a catastrophe.

An interesting analysis of the situation.

#msm not covering this.

Dealing with #covid19UK should be govt’s top priority.

I’ve called on #Johnson to pause Brexit trade talks and extend transition period so Ministers can focus.

Failure to prioritise is a recipe for disaster.

UK faces a gathering storm of managing #Coronavirus, dealing with ongoing #FloodingCrisis, whilst attempting most complicated negotiations and supply chain restructure for generations.

Govt couldn’t manage #floods crisis on its own, so how can they tackle all 3 massive threats?
#Johnson has been conspicuous by his absence during #flooding crisis and failed to show the leadership required over a threat as serious as #Coronavirus.

He’s out of his depth.
And we’re out of time.

Need a quick overview of our new report assessing progress in preparing for the impacts of climate change in #England? Look no further! Read the full report theccc.org.uk/publication/pr…, take a look at our new infographic theccc.org.uk/wp-content/upl… or check out the following #thread
[1/10] Ministers must strengthen policy on adaptation & put resources in place to drive action to prepare for climate impacts in #England. Our report finds that support services/funding have been eroded over past 10yrs & latest National Adaptation Programme is not strong enough.
[2/10] There are many examples of dedicated officials+organisations doing great work to try to build resilience to #climate impacts. But a better, strategic national framework to underpin and drive action on the ground is needed. Piecemeal action does not match the scale of risk.

There's a seriously big turnout for climatologist David Phillips tonight at @NLGEOCENTRE. Let's hope he does some real talk on #climatechange. He's already given a pitch for #yyt + #windpower
Plenty of chuckles from the crowd about our crummy weather (wettest... windiest... etc) stats #nlwx
David talks about the transition
1) global warming
2) climate change
What's next? 3) atmospheric terrorism

Well. This looks like confirmation of the existence of a positive feedback loop that may make it even harder to prevent extreme sea level rise, and all the other #climatechange extremes.

Not surprised, but very concerned. (Thread) unenvironment.org/news-and-stori…
...the thing about this new Arctic study is, it’s a clear example of how #climatechange can be worse than what we’ve been told.

Most studies show it is likely to be worse, as we continue to do this puzzle- putting the complex pieces together, with an ever uglier result. 2/3
In my own area of research, it turns out that including #groundwater in coastal #flooding projections can drastically expand the amount of area affected.

Not just by emergent flooding, but by remobilizing soil pollution we capped decades ago but didn’t line from below. 3/4

#NSPNsymposium18 @yfortiss starts off the session on Rebuilding Sustainable & Resilient #PuertoRico thru #Science @scipolnetwork
@SEPANYC

w/ @Sefini @sloan_kettering, Juan Ramirez @aaas @nahjUPRRP, and @fcoloninFL of Jasperi Consulting and former advisor to US Dept of State
Ramirez shows #NSPNsymposium18 the striking and dramatic impact of the #PuertoRico hurricane, and the impact on services and #infrastructure. Power was a prominent lasting impact. Cellphone signal was out for days, but once back the people got to work 💪
Pix of the student centre & research building at the university @nahjUPRRP soon after the hurricane in #PuertoRico, taken by Ramirez. Just over a year later, the regular semester and the natural beauty of the campus has returned 👏 #NSPNsymposium18

Last night, the @starbucks location on 107th Ave & Grand in Sun City, AZ kicked out a group of mamas (& a baby!) during the intense #monsoon storm. Us BEGGING them to give us a few mins to compose a safe plan for alternative shelter as it was unsafe to be out.
The store was 2 hours from closing time but had lost power due to the severity of the storm. Interior lights were on and we were a small-ish group of paying customers. All mamas and even one baby, very quietly discussing things over drinks we had just purchased.
Just before the power went out, we had checked the radar and saw that the storm was huge and the eye was above us. Trees were down, lighting was striking & started fires in the area, 75mps winds, sideways rain, little visibility. It was tornado-like.
