#HeatWaves are soon to become the new normal for #Mumbai.
While steps are being taken to make the city climate-resilient, impacts of #HeatStress are sprinting ahead threatening Mumbai's food security, public health, ecosystem & economy.

#HeatStress happens when the body heats up excessively leading to dehydration, dizziness, fatigue, etc.
#HeatWaves in #Mumbai has led to an uptick in:
heat-related illnesses & deaths
power outages
crop failure
drinking water shortages
risk to wildlife

Global evidence demonstrates clear causal links b/w heatwave intensity & #ClimateChange tinyurl.com/2p9ftrky

As per @rocksea, data for 70 years shows that “the number of heatwaves is directly in response to #GlobalWarming.”

Once Iraq´s Saddam Hussein said about oil management:
A small thread about oil politics:

🧵🧵🧵🧵🧵🧵🧵🧵

Is the US in the Gulf to "steal" the oil? -> NO!
All the oil ever consumed is LESS that 1/5 of Lake Tahoe: tinyurl.com/5n7fsc9e

Do this:
- Just zoom in and out.
- Think that all this burns at once and creates a cloud/blanket covering whole Earth.
- Tell me, would this little fart make ANY difference to #GlobalWarming ?

How many climate scientists agree with this I wonder? #ClimateCrisis #GlobalWarming #ClimateActionNow #ClimateEmergency ImageImageImage
These diagrams are so completely wrong that they all deserve to be memes.
@pmddomingos, has it ever occurred to you that the greenhouse effect as virtually always taught (and depicted, above) doesn't make any sense from a physics perspective?

Animation showing the strong correlation between recent increases in carbon dioxide and changes in global mean temperature, as well as projected future changes.

#GlobalWarming #ClimateChange
Since the late 19th century, the Earth has warmed about 1.3 °C (2.3 °F), almost half of which has occurred since 1990.

This warming is strongly correlated with the rise in carbon dioxide concentrations in the atmosphere. Image
The recent warming of the Earth has occurred due to a very rapid rise in the concentration of carbon dioxide (and other greenhouse gases) in the atmosphere.

This recent rise in carbon dioxide is a consequence of the industrial revolution and the burning of fossil fuels. Image

Let The Earth Breathe (Deixe a Terra Respirar)

Saiba sobre o protesto que esta sendo falado apenas na gringa, cientistas foram presos para tentar nos alertar!

Em 6 de abril, cerca de 1,000 cientistas de 26 países arriscaram serem presos para nos alertar. Foi um protesto na frente do banco que mais financia projetos de combustíveis fósseis no mundo (JPMorgan chase, 382 bilhões em financiamento). Eles foram presos. ⤵︎
O grupo, chamado Scientist Rebellion, escreve em uma carta que “as ações e planos atuais são inadequados, e mesmo essas obrigações não estão sendo cumpridas”. Seus protestos “destacam a urgência e a injustiça da crise climática e ecológica”, segundo um comunicado da organização.

🌏 We only have three years left to avert the worst consequences of #climate change, a sobering report from the @UN warned on Monday.

Here are the 5️⃣ solutions that scientists say can make a dent in the #ClimateCrisis right now. 👇

1️⃣ Cities and urban areas make up two-thirds of all global emissions, according to the new #IPCCReport.

🚌 Redesigning urban transportation could cut about one-quarter of those emissions by 2050.

2️⃣ In 2019, energy suppliers produced about 34% of all human-driven emissions worldwide, according to the IPCC report.

🔈Climate scientists' core message: We must stop using fossil fuels as quickly as possible.

The rain event that flooded Lismore collapsed landscapes.
It shattered hillsides. Roads broke apart and fell down valleys.
Hillsides fell on houses.

This thread gives a glimpse of the cost of inaction on #ClimateDisruption

1/
For every 1°C of #GlobalWarming, the atmosphere holds an additional 7% water vapour. The extra heat (energy) means more extreme events.

On Tuntable Creek Rd, a neighbour measured 810mm. That’s 32 inches.

This is our road.

These impacts are across the whole Northern Rivers.
This is a landscape collapse event.
The word ‘flood’ does not describe what happened here.

Here is Part-IV of my series on the #RussianUkraine crisis and possible #NuclearWar and use of #NuclearWeapons. Things are still under control but with the passage of each day, they are getting worst. #DigitalIndia #IndiaAt75 #Russia #Ukraine #NATO #RussianUkrainianWar
This thread covers the entire series along with related issues like #COVID19, #ClimateChange, #GlobalWarming, etc . COVID-19, War and Climate Change Narratives are part of a single Narrative meant for Global Hegemony and Totalitarian Control. #DigitalIndia
The @NATO rejects Ukraine's demand for no-fly zones. "We are not part of this conflict, and we have a responsibility to ensure it does not escalate and spread beyond Ukraine," NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg told a news conference. #RussiaUkraine #Russia #Ukraine #NATO

I started following this in December 2020, when this paper was released:

"If fiscal packages are invested in carbon-intensive technologies and traditional fossil fuel-based infrastructure, this will bring huge lock-in effects on emissions."

"Five-year emissions will increase by 15.6% (22.0 Gt) versus decreases of 4.7% (6.6 Gt), if the fiscal packages were invested in clean energy and advanced technologies (scenario SDS)." 3/x
