The blinding of the #Byzantine Emperor Constantine VI in #Constantinople in August 797 CE and his overthrow by his mother Eirene was used as legitimation for the #coronation of the Frankish King #Charlemagne as emperor of the Romans on 25 December, 800. (2/9)
In #Byzantine sources, Constantine VI´s #blinding was linked with a spectacular #celestialmanifestation of divine disapproval: “The #sun was darkened for seventeen days and did not emit its rays so that ships lost course and drifted about.” (3/9)

🧵Here's a fun thread for Monday! If you like #climatecrisis #ilmastonmuutos, travel, adventure, #Finland 🇫🇮, entitlement, colonialism and not a hint of irony then I guarantee you'll love this story! ⬇️
Meet the cast of a new Finnish reality TV show! Wait, not a TV show, it's just reality. These folks are (mostly) entrepreneurs who went on an expedition to 🇬🇱 #Greenland. How exciting! But why did they go to Greenland, you ask?🤔
Good question! They flew all the way to Greenland not just to kayak, hike & shoot guns y'all. They went to find out about the impact of climate change. The glaciers are melting folks & the only way to learn about it is TO GO THERE IMMEDIATELY!

I was there in 2019 when record heat caused the island to lose more than 530 billion tons from its ice sheet -- the largest annual loss since record-keeping began in 1948.

2/ Two things are happening: old ice is melting, never to be replenished, pushing rising sea levels. And new sea ice is failing to form at historic levels. While eyes have been on Europe's soaring heat, it's been HOT over the North Pole & pts of #Greenland , too.

3/ So far, #Greenland looks on track to see more melting of it's ice sheet than occurred with record-breaker 2019 summer. This is #GlobalWarming planet-wide impact, as fresh water pours into salty seas, altering ocean chemistry & temperatures.

We watched "Don't Look Up" last night -- dumb movie, but convinced me not to hold back inconvenient truths.
So here goes.
#Greenland The Danish Meteorological Institute says huge warming there is linked to #ClimateChange .
How much "warming?"
- The capital Nuuk hit 55 F this week -- average temp for this time = 22.5 F
- Further north in Qaanaaq temp topped 46 F -- normal is -4.2 F.

China Credit Update - Mini Thread (10/6/21) 👇👇
2. #Evergrande made headlines in the US two weeks ago when markets dropped 2%. But the slide was more likely due to gamma "unclenching" after a massive 9/17 options expiration. Since Evergrande has now been deemed "contained", attention has moved elsewhere.
3. The story was never #Evergrande. The story is a decade of unsustainable, unproductive debt fueled growth that is key to Chinese economic growth, holds the countries wealth, and is at risk of imploding as Beijing breaks the implicit debt backstop.

#Greenland’s Melting Glaciers Are Releasing Shocking Amounts of #Mercury in the Nation’s Rivers…

(📸: (Jeremy Harbeck/NASA)
If you thought melting ice sheets only raised environmental red flags in terms of #GlobalWarming and rising sea levels, you are in for an unfortunate surprise.

#Greenland #glacier #Mercury
In a recent discovery, scientists have found a melting ice sheet in the southwestern region of #Greenland that is releasing huge amounts of mercury into the nearby rivers and fjords (narrow, deep inlets created by glaciers).

Which in this case is: New year, new journal. Empty pages waiting to be filled with thoughts, notes, sketches ... opportunities. Image

Meanwhile in #France,
"the peak of this second wave is over"

(according to the President in his Adress to the Nation):
Wait... "the peak is over" doesn´t mean "it´s back to normal"!

Confinement will only fall on December 15,
if there´s less than 5.000 new cases a day.
(today it´s ~9.000).

France is disappointed.🙁

Although they certainly can make it happen.
Meanwhile in #Switzerland:
(excess mortality of the second wave is significant)

Good news: fastest decrease in infections happens in the worst hit areas now.
