What is the story behind the famous #Bangalore weather?

It goes back 3400 million years...🧵
Around 3,400 million years ago, the peninsular ‘gneiss’ came out and was cooled from volcanic activity.

This is what formed the city’s bedrock today. But the rock itself weathered and stored water in shallow aquifers.
Bengaluru as we know it today, settled at the fag end of the Deccan plateau, 900 metres above sea level.

This gave it the #pleasant climate that Bengaluru is famous for.

Let’s now skip to 88 million years ago. >>

🇫🇷 #France's high school reform in 2021 had an unexpected side effect: a significant portion of girl students dropped math.

In 2020, 44% chose advanced math—the following year, this number fell to 24%.

@ShirliSitbon has more on the phenomenon for the #DayoftheGirl ⤵️
@ShirliSitbon 🇲🇬 Child marriage is a daily reality for tens of thousands of young girls in #Madagascar.

"When a girl turns 12 or 13, she becomes a new source of income for the family", explains @Galaelle for #DayoftheGirl.

"She is sacrificed to allow the family to survive" ⤵️
@ShirliSitbon @Galaelle 🇲🇬 The consequences for young girls promised into marriage are "irreversible".

"It's impossible to build a stable, healthy, developed society if young girls' fundamental rights are not guaranteed," reports @Galaelle on #DayoftheGirl ⤵️

How a mispronounced word re-named a country:
Marco Polo was an Italian explorer known for helping the Mongol emperor of China, Kublai Khan on expanding his realm.
He became the most important explorer in the court of Kublai Khan. Today, he is credited for being one of the most influential explorers of all time.
When Marco Polo visited the Island of Mogadishu, Somalia, he mispronounced Mogadishu as 'Madagascar'.

You know that France lost her French West African possessions, Belgium lost the Congo 🇨🇩, England lost Nigeria 🇳🇬 and Ghana 🇬🇭 and some of the other English-speaking areas; France also lost Algeria, or the Algerians took Algeria 🇩🇿
As soon as these European powers lost their African possessions, Belgium had an economic crisis, the same year she turned the Congo loose.

Update Thread:

#ExtremeWeather #Madagascar #Batsirai #CycloneBatsirai

Intense Cyclone Batsirai has strengthened rapidly and grown significantly larger. It has now passed Mauritius and its outer bands are now over Reunion.
Madagascar is 1000kms long top to bottom and #BatsiraiCyclone's outer bands are roughly the same size. With sustained winds of over 113 knots the storm is now the equivalent of a Category 4 Major Hurricane.
The JTWC's latest forecast track update #13 shows the storm maintaining very intense cyclone intensity up to landfall (of the eyewall - maximum strength winds) in the morning on Saturday. Rain and high winds will arrive on Friday.

The world is on fire. I've been warning about the perfect storm brewing due to Covid, conflict, climate shocks & now, rising supply chain costs. IT IS HERE. 45M lives are at stake—and increasing daily. If you don’t feed people, you feed conflict, destabilization & mass migration.

Ci sono argomenti che non so come trattare.

Che sono proprio difficili da elaborare emotivamente. Il blackhumor in questi casi non ti viene in aiuto.

Vabbè, la schianto facile: ci sono, ad oggi, paesi che stanno morendo di fame a causa della grave siccità, come il #Madagascar
Qui non piove da 4 anni (circa) e gli abitanti sono costretti a mangiare quei pochi insetti che trovano e foglie di cactus.

Viene da sé che è una dieta pessima per la sopravvivenza.
Bisogna usare con cautela anche "Colpa del surriscaldamento globale" perché non tutti ancora son disposti a capire il concatenamento di eventi che questo crea.

Ma soprattutto, molti non vogliono pensare al cambiamento climatico e alla morte allo stesso tempo.
