A major heatwave will hit this week to western Europe.
Temperatures over 40°C are expected in France and widely in Spain.

And this all will happen after a record-warm May in France and the 2nd warmest May in Spain.

Some thoughts in a thread 👇
The heatwave forms when an upper-level ridge strengthens in the downstream of the Azorean cut-off low.

The ridge involves hot airmass from Africa, and perhaps more importantly, descending air parcels adiabatically warming when reaching surface.
The evolution resembles 2019 western European heatwave, but this time the downstream ridge responsible for the heatwave does not grow as strong in amplitude, and also the wave breaking looks more cyclonic (or less anticyclonic) than in 2019.

Hot but not bothered?🧠🔥 Our paper on human brain temperature is out today in Brain! @ONeill_Lab @MRC_LMB @Brain1878 #LMBResearch #BrainTemp #BrainTrauma…

In a prospective analysis of healthy men and women, we found that brain temperature is higher than body temperature; brain temperature ranges from 36.1 to 40.9°C, with an average of 38.5C 🧠🔥.

#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.

#HeatStressMumbai 🔥 A THREAD Image
#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

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

#heatwave communication is an important part of effective adaptation. News media play a key role in shaping how we think and feel.

Whilst there's ++ research on textual media representations, there's far less on visuals. But visuals play a key role in communication!

We examined media coverage (text and visual) from the UK, Netherlands, France and Germany during summer 2019. Importantly, this was for news that mentioned BOTH keywords #heatwave and #ClimateChange.

Our detailed codebook and coder instructions are available in Supp Info

Que dit le 6e rapport du #GIEC sur les vagues de chaleur/canicules (influence humaine + projections futures) alors que le sous-continent #Indien & #Pakistan suffoquent?🥵 #heatwave
Ci-dessous un traduction directe en fil🧵des conclusions du chapitre 11 sur ce sujet!
A dérouler⤵️
Des changements à long terme dans les statistiques des températures extrêmes de courte & de longue durée, notamment l'intensité, la fréquence & la durée, ont été détectés dans les observations & attribués à l'influence humaine à l'échelle mondiale et continentale.
Il est extrêmement probable que l'influence humaine soit le principal facteur contribuant à l'augmentation observée de l'intensité et de la fréquence des extrêmes chauds et à la diminution observée de l'intensité & de la fréquence des extrêmes froids à l'échelle mondiale

BREAKING :: Unfortunately for Indians the extreme heat is not over and it will just get worse in few days:An incoming potentially deadly #heatwave will see the temperatures soaring up to 46-47C in #India. Stay tuned.

#WeDontHaveTime #Planetarysecurity #SupportRewilding Image

The Earth is now in a period of rapid climate change, with global temperatures rising because of human activities, such as the burning of coal, oil and gas.
#PlanetarySecurity #WeDontHaveTime #SupportRewilding Image
The greenhouse gases released by burning fossil fuels trap the Sun's energy, pushing up temperatures.

CO2 levels in the atmosphere have risen by about 50% since the 19th Century and by 12% in the past two decades.

🌡🧵So there you have it. @drbonniehenry misled us again. I asked via #cdnFOI and the @bcndp Ministry of Health under @adriandix says it has no provincial government heat emergency plan. #bcpoli #FOIA @BCLiberalCaucus @BCGreens #heatdome #heatwave
That letter refers to a @CDCofBC 2017 publication, which shifts responsibility to the regional health boards and municipalities. #BCGov has a nuclear emergency response plan (among others), but no top-down plan for a heat emergency. #bcpoli #cdnfoi…

Tragedy like the #LyttonFire is the very reason why we should talk about the impacts of #climatechange on these events and on #wildfires in Canada. A thread. 1/
Obviously, #wildfires are strongly linked to #weather/#climate parameters. The warmer, the windier, the drier is the weather, the more fire ignition probabilities and spread
#temperatures are increasing fast around the globe but way faster in Canada. 1.7C since 1948. Warming in especially important in the west, notably in spring and summer time

1/ A senior ExxonMobil lobbyist has been caught on camera claiming that the oil giant is waging a secret war on climate change legislation. The covert recordings filmed by @GreenpeaceUK & @UE lift the lid on the secretive world of US oil lobbying
2/. Lobbyist Keith McCoy thinks is being interviewed by a headhunter

In reality he is being filmed by @Greenpeace @Channel4News

He claims Exxon “aggressively” fought science to deny climate change action in order to maximise profit & shareholder return & lobbied key senators.
3/. As parts of the US & Canada are gripped by #heatwave, an investigation by @UE reveals how @exxonmobil’s leading lobbyists reveal how America’s biggest oil company undermined climate policy under the Trump admin & is doing the same with the @biden admin

Menacing March: India Endures Third Hottest March Since 1901; Warmest in Last 11 Years, As Per IMD


(📸: IANS)
Did you start experiencing scorching summer heat from the very beginning of March 2021? Did you feel this March was much hotter than it usually is? If so, your instincts were spot on.

Last month, the country recorded an average maximum temperature of 32.65°C, which makes March 2021 the third warmest March India has endured in the past 121 years—since record-keeping began!

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.

Mayor Eric Garcetti says extreme heat and electricity demand has caused outages in parts of Los Angeles for LADWP customers.

People we spoke to near Alvarado and Beverly say power has been off since 6:30. Ppl are trying to stay cool outdoors or in cars. @ABC7

As of 5pm, about 9,000 customers have been without power. Likely more since then, but they are still working to verify others. All HEAT related.

Largest outages are in these neighborhoods…
📍Highland Park
📍Westlake area
📍Sun Valley
Isn’t it a little ironic that lights in many of the offices in the @LADWP building in DTLA are lit up way past business hours, as thousands of their customers are without power... during a #heatwave... because of a power shortage. Do employees work there at 10:30pm?? Image
