Why do people resist #climateadaptation? Our new paper uses a sociological resistance lens to identify overt and covert #popularresistance in 56 adaptation papers and analyses the Sites, Repertoires and Consequences of resistance to adaptation (1/X)…
Societal responses to risks of #floods, #droughts, or #hurricanes – even those using a language of participation – might follow historical development pathways, strive to maintain the status quo, and directly or indirectly serve elite interests (2/X)
In recent years, we have seen an upsurge of civil society actors who co-produce adaptation solutions directly and mobilise for increased action, compensation, and reparation by those in power, for instance under the banner of #climatejustice (3/X)

For the first time since 1941, the Atlantic has had no named storm (e.g., tropical storm or #hurricane) activity from July 3rd-August 30th.
Since 1950, two Augusts have had no Atlantic named storm formations: 1961 and 1997. It remains to be seen if 2022 will join this list. 1961 ended up a hyperactive #hurricane season with an extremely busy September-November, while 1997 was a below-average season.
This remarkable quiet period is even more impressive given we have a robust #LaNina in the tropical Pacific and anomalously warm tropical Atlantic. Current 30-day-averaged tropical Atlantic sea surface temperatures are 6th warmest since 1982 and typical of a hyperactive season.

Thread: Will the weather support Biden or Putin?

1- Two factors will determine the future of Presidents Biden & Putin: Global economic growth & Weather.

A recession is bad for both Biden & Putin.

A #recession might change the balance of power in the forthcoming US election
2- A recession is not good for Putin: It would reduce the demand for oil & natural gas & allow the EU to rebuild its inventories. It would also lower energy prices, which reduces Putin’s bargaining power. A recession would reduce the cost of building regasification terminals.
3- A recession might help Putin if it leads to increased public anger in Europe and change in governments. After all, Putin's objective is t break the EU and force some of them to deal with him covertly or overtly. Just look at the events in the Netherlands now.

My @EdmontonOilers are playing the @Canes today. I'm predicting a 4-3 #Oilers win. I get a treat every time my team scores and today grade A Alberta beef pieces are on the line. A lot riding on this game. But I have faith in Connor McDavid. He called me cute.

#LetsGoOilers A black cat tan rottweiler ...
The #Hurricanes score and it's now 1-0 over my #Oilers. Zero goaltreats for me so far. And our Captain has taken a stick to the face and has left the ice! Hopefully he'll be back!
It's still early in the game.

#NHLPups A black-and-tan rottweiler ...
Dogdamnit! The #Canes score again. It's now 2-0 over my #Oilers.
We've had a ruff start but there's 2 full periods left.
Lots of time to catch up. But we need to stay out of the penalty kennel.

Reporters: a thread about the links between human-caused #climatechange & hurricanes. As you report on #HurricanIda, help readers understand these links.
For references & details, see the summary.

1. Warmer oceans worsen & accelerate intensification.…
2. Warmer air from climate change holds more moisture, which contributes to increased rainfall from hurricanes.
3. Higher sea levels from #climate change means storm surges and coastal flooding are worse than they would otherwise have been.
4. There's growing evidence large hurricanes are slowing their movements over land, causing longer periods of intense rains over smaller areas, worsening flood risks.

1/ In reflecting on my work this year I have just realized that everything I published concerned climate change: here is a roundup of my 2020 writing on #climate #justice, climate #reparations, climate #debt, climate #displacement, climate #mobilities & #disaster #recovery
2/ My most recent online piece is on #Arctic #Mobilities, #climate #displacement and #Indigenous rights, originating from a great workshop @PennLaw_CERL…
3/ Last month I also wrote about #climate #displacement and the case for #climate #reparations and #open #borders for those fleeing climate disasters…

🚨My first #phd @EarthArXiv #preprint!🚨

"A Storm Hazard Matrix combining coastal flooding and beach erosion"

Consider these two locations. Did they face the same type of coastal storm hazard? A thread 1/7
Coastal #storms and #hurricanes can bring flooding (elevated water levels) and beach #erosion, but how much of each depends the coastal setting and the storm conditions. If we can understand and predict what hazards may threaten a coast, we can better prepare for them. 2/7
Coastal flooding and beach erosion hazards on sandy beaches should be considered separately. We're building off the existing Storm Impact Scale and proposing a new erosion hazard scale which is based on changes to the beach and dune profile. 3/7

#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.

People who refuse to #VoteBlue b/c they're mad about #M4A won't get ANY healthcare bills up for a vote, not even the 3 rx-price bills already passed by the House b/c McConnell blocks them. He's blocking 400+ House bills right NOW.…
People who refuse to #VoteBlue because they're mad about #M4A will deliver unto us a #conservative Supreme Court for decades to come that would OVERTURN #M4A if it passed & were challenged by #Republicans the way Trump is asking them to do RIGHT NOW w/ the #ACA. Image
If you agree with the #democrats that healthcare is a human right, then #VoteBlue. If you want to pressure Congress to pass #M4A, #VoteBlue. The #Republican Party is BLOCKING basics like rx drug prices & challenging the #ACA in court.

It wasn’t an Act of God. It was an Act of Chevron. An Act of Exxon. An Act of Big Oil.… #NewOrleans #Louisiana #HurricaneKatrina #Barry #BigOil #Pollution #Environment #ClimateChange
Take a look at these numbers dug out of #Louisiana state records:

Conoco 3.3 million acres
Exxon Mobil 2.1 million acres
Chevron 2.7 million acres
Shell 1.3 million acres

These are the total acres of wetlands removed by just four oil companies over two decades.
#NewOrleans used be to a long, swampy way from the Gulf of Mexico. #Hurricanes & storm surges had to cross a protective mangrove forest nearly a 100 miles thick. Then Standard Oil, Exxon’s prior alias, began channeling pipelines & tanker routes thu the soft delta prairie grass.

💥Trump’s changing how Govt #Climate Agencies report results!All 4 $$$ 4 BIG OIL🏭

Astonishing article.He’s KILLING THE EARTH 4 GENERATIONS 😢🥀

#TrumpFakeScience #ClimateChange #SaveTheEarth

#Trump Admin #Attacks #ClimateScience-NYT…
This is the thickness of the #EarthsAtmosphere from pictures I took during one of #NASA’s Live Feeds from the #ISS!Trump wants to change how #Climate data is shown to Americans so that releasing CO2 looks less dangerous then it actually is #ClimateChange #ClimateAction is needed!
Here’s one reality, we should be spending more money to stay on Earth than planning to leave to go to Mars because Earth’s Atmosphere is no longer viable to sustain life. Research is important but Mars Doesn’t Have an Atmosphere. Millions of people can’t live there in 125 years‼️

(1) I survived a deadly #earthquake in 2011, so watching #hurricanes & other disasters has become a major interest of mine.

All I want is to help save lives & property.

The CA Democrats' reaction to their #wildfires crisis is very telling.

Many voters will #WalkAway.
(2) It's very simple to understand WHY California's #wildfires have worsened in the last 10 years or so.

Natural & plantation forests have been badly mismanaged. (Something we can change.)

Naturally occurring climate change is also a factor. (Something we can't change,)
(3) Democrats want you to ignore the factors we CAN change, such as the mismanagement of forests, & to focus on the factor we CAN'T change: The sun driving the cycle of warming & cooling that's gone on since the planet formed.
