Yesterday I read a very important thread by @Jasonvj2005 about the #Thwaites glacier in #Antarctica.

The thread was in German, so I took the liberty to translate it. More people need to read it to understand where we stand.

Let's talk about it. And think about what to do. Image
The #Thwaites glacier in Antarctica is larger than #Czechia, #Austria and #Switzerland combined. It's already #melting and accounting for 4% of global sea level rise.

Now, researchers from the #American #Geophysical Union have found huge diagonal cracks across the ice shelf.
They're growing faster than ever before. The prediction: In the next five years, the ice mass could #collapse abruptly. What would that mean?

The ice shelf could disintegrate into countless icebergs, and the rest of the glacier will then flow into the sea 3x faster than before.

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.
70% of Earth's freshwater is frozen, and #Greenland is the 2nd largest block of ice after #Antarctica. If it were to fully melt...

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).

Thanks to @kimbiddulph it’s #Archaeology31 time again! - Starting with prompt number one: #new.

Which in this case is: New year, new journal. Empty pages waiting to be filled with thoughts, notes, sketches ... opportunities. Image
#Archaeology31 day 2, #future, offers a great chance to highlight a topic I found particularly interesting as of late:

How will an #ArchaeologyOfTheFuture look like - What do *we* leave behind for future colleagues?

(Weekend reading recommendations included. 😉) Image
Starting with the question what actually constitutes #CulturalHeritage, #sites, and #monuments of our age ...

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.

#Breaking: @IMOHQ & Arctic States Slammed for Endorsing Continued Arctic Pollution by approving "outrageous" weak heavy fuel oil ban #mepc75 Image
.@CleanArctic slammed the decision by @IMOHQ to approve a ban ridden with of loopholes on the use and carriage of heavy fuel oil in the Arctic (HFO), saying that it would leave the Arctic, its Indigenous communities and its wildlife facing risk of a HFO spill for another decade
The ban was approved during a virtual meeting of the @iMo’s Marine Environment Protection Committee (#MEPC 75), despite widespread opposition from Indigenous groups, NGOs and in a statement release this week, the Catholic Church.

Study Estimates Global Ice Loss of 28 Gigatonnes Since 1994; #Arctic Worst-Hit - by @MrigDixit…

(Image credit: NASA/Joe MacGregor) Image
Melting and refreezing of ice around the globe is an annual natural phenomenon, but owing to the gradual rise in global average temperature, the cycle is no longer marked by just the seasonal variability.

Over the last few decades, the accelerated irreversible melting has been a prime indicator of #globalwarming and is posing a massive threat to the entire world in the form of rising sea-levels.

Earth has lost a 'staggering' 28 trillion tonnes of ice to global warming in the last 23 years, UK scientists find… Image
A "staggering" 28 trillion tonnes of ice has disappeared from the surface of the #Earth since 1994, a group of UK scientists has found.
Scientists from #Leeds and #Edinburgh universities and University College London analyzed satellite surveys of glaciers, mountains, and ice sheets between 1994 and 2017 to identify the impact of global warming.
