Another heatwave grips Washington, Oregon & British Columbia. Climate change - long predicted + denied - is here.

We know it's time to transition off fossil fuels.

And, all year, @invw's Decarbonizing #Cascadia series is exploring how we can.…
We launched in January explaining how a region w/ official goals to slash emissions and the means to do it just keeps getting dirtier. @invw analyzed the latest data, showing that Washington, Oregon and BC's emissions rose by 5, 6 and 7% b/w 2013 & 2018.…
We also profiled #Cascadia's activists, such as the @youthvgov litigants suing govts for the right to a livable future and campaigners eroding Big Oil, Gas and Coal's political power. @robertmcclure showed how activists bottled up fossil export proposals.…

Climate Crisis: Science failed to predict flood & heat intensity

Top climate scientists have admitted they failed to predict intensity of German #floods & the North American heat dome #cdnpoli #cdnmedia #bcpoli #bcheatwave…
#climatescience former Met Office chief scientist Prof
told BBC News: "We should be alarmed because the IPCC #climatemodels are just not good enough

It’s is IMPOSSIBLE to say how much of an (existential) emergency we are in because we don’t have the tools to answer question🤔
Some scientists argue that it's futile to wait for the @IPCC_CH to say how bad the #climatecrisis will be 👀

Just to show the scale of the massive #floods in western Europe, here you have the confluence of the rives Our and Sauer (which forms the 🇱🇺 🇩🇪 border). Left, the picturesque view in normal times. Right, a picture made by a family member just minutes ago..
The water level in the River Sauer (called Sûre in French) was 608.1cm at 11.30am. To put it into perspective, the vigilance level is 350cm and alert level is 425cm.
Elsewhere in the state of Rhineland-Palatinate the situation seems to be even worse. In Belgium it's also precarious - with even a city as large as Liège now being partially evacuated.

#CycloneAmphan was the most expensive #cyclone of 2020 and the fourth most expensive natural disaster overall…

@pabsgill From the bushfires in Australia and the locust swarms in East Africa, here’s a full list of the top 10 most extreme weather events driven by #climatechange.

(📸: 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.

#Floods and #wildfires are both subject to regression to the tail. The same holds for #droughts, #hurricanes, #landslides, #icemelt, #sealevelchange, and other phenomena closely related to the climate crisis. Image
This tells us that understanding regression to the tail and how to mitigate its specific manifestations for climate will be key to mitigating the climate crisis.
Here it is worth remembering that regression to the tail for the climate crisis will be just as indifferent to human ignorance and folly as regression to the tail is for covid-19.

To soothe the anthropologist and journalist in me, I joined @epw_in’s Engage in 2019, where I got the space to build visual narratives of academic articles & deep-dive into EPW’s Archives to curate exhaustive reading lists.

Here's a #thread of some of the cool work I got to do.
Designed by @lalposter, here's an illustration I curated of @durbakatha & @mrinalsatish’s eye-opening research on how evidencing of rape in S. Asia is embedded in colonial assumptions, and perpetuates stereotypes of women, their character and bodies.
How has the trauma of the Partition been internalised by India's collective conscious? This timeline is based on Gita Viswanath's and Salma Malik's research on how the Partition came to be depicted through Hindi cinema.

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.

"I think my County will be better managed if the Government doesn't have to face Parliamentary scrutiny about any of its 'plans'.

Since it can achieve this simply through #coronavirusuk inaction, it has my support".
Nah. Fear mongering. Obviously, they'd never do that.

OK, Mr/Mrs "Trust the Government so much despite #Floods and #Brexit".

A friend just went to 4 asian countries. He's back now and self isolating. His comment

"In every country we passed through we were strictly monitored at the border for contagion. Including IR fever technology.
Except one.
The UK.
Checks were completely lacking."
@patel4witham is content to play politics at the home office while forgetting her day job is to manage border security.

@BorisJohnson is writing a book in the full knowledge that the day job is protecting the realm.

How countries respond in first days defines viral spread
This is what happens when you elect people who have learned nothing about delivery.

Instead these populist idiots have learned everything about politics, bigotry and rabble rousing...

Just what you don't need in a healthcare crisis.

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.

NEW: @BorisJohnson is finally visiting South Yorkshire this morning - six days after the flooding hit.

He is doing one pooled interview and not talking to regional media.

@itvcalendar | #GE19 | #Floods
WATCH: ‘It’s took you over five days. You should have been there Saturday morning having a meeting... and I’m sorry your announcements yesterday were a pittance.’

Residents in flood-hit Stainforth tell @BorisJohnson what they think of his govt’s response.

@itvcalendar | #Floods
UPDATE: We weren’t invited to the PM’s visit to South Yorkshire. But we turned up to Stainforth on a hunch and doorstepped him. Clip soon.

Aside from us and the pool interview, I am not aware he talked to any other media but happy to be corrected.

Locals here in #Snodland say there’s been nothing like this for at least 40 years - the radar shows massive amounts of rainfall over last 24 hours, spreading from South East across England and Wales. #WeatherWarning #Floods @GMB @metoffice
