1. The climate in 2100: The future is nearer than you think, and that is terrible news.

We are not good at imagining the future, which makes it harder to promote climate action.

2. Many of us fear for a future where climate change and the loss of nature make this planet a tough place to survive.

Long-term climate change projections, like from the IPCC, usually predict the situation in the year 2100. theplanet.substack.com/p/the-climate-…

3. In the IPCC's 'middle of the road' scenario, temperatures will rise to 2.7C by the end of the century.

It assumes that CO2 emissions hover around current levels before starting to fall mid-century.

Is that realistic?

One of my main contributions to the #IPCCReport was to coordinate the Frequently Asked Questions.
With @nigelhawtin @TomMaycock @connorsSL @MelichatGo and the authors, we've produced 34 1-page explainers + figure on important climate concepts.

In the coming weeks, I'll try to share the main findings from the FAQs.
1/ for the 1st time, #ClimateReport says that human influence on the climate is an established fact. To support this, we show the many consistent lines of evidence showing that the world is warming /FAQ2.2 Image
2/ from FAQ2.2, we know that the climate is changing. The observed warming since 1850 (black) can *only* be explained by human activities (grey: red + blue). Natural causes (green) have had a limited effect
PS: climate simulations are very close to observations /FAQ3.1 Image

@ipcc_ch reports that b/w 1971 & 2010, oceans absorbed over 90% of the heat gained by the planet due to #globalwarming. This led to #sealevel rise and has also resulted in higher frequency & intensity of #cyclones worldwide. #ClimateChange #MumbaiMustPrepare @mumbaismagic
Indian Ocean has also warmed but what is worrying is the higher rate of #warming in comparison to other global ocean basins. Data shows that Indian Ocean’s rapid basin-wide warming of ~1degC over the last 60 yrs exceeds that of the global average of ~0.7 degC. #MumbaiMustPrepare
Arabian Sea & Bay of Bengal have also seen consistent warming in past decades. The trend in rise in sea surface temperature for BoB has been 0.16C/decade & 0.18C/decade for AS. Arabian Sea indeed has been warming quite rapidly and impacts are for us to see. #MumbaiMustPrepare

#SeaLevel Rise Due to #Antarctica's Ice Sheet Melting 30% More than Previously Estimated: Study

Amid a #pandemic, the #ClimateCrisis may appear a distant threat. But burgeoning scientific studies have continued to point at a riskier future with cascading impacts.

#Antartica
Among all, research suggests that the melting of the icy continent of the globe, #Antarctica, alone can create widespread devastating impact in the form of rising sea levels around the globe.

New paper ‘The causes of sea-level rise since 1900’ (nature.com/articles/s4158…) just came out! We have shown that we can close the ‘sea-level budget’ since 1900. That means, that we can now explain the causes of the observed #sealevel changes since 1900. (1/n)
That used to be an unsolved problem: global sea-level reconstructions showed more sea-level rise than could be explained by what was known about ice melt and thermal expansion of sea water due to the warming oceans. Now, we finally show that everything sums up well. (2/n)
In the figure you can see that global sea level has risen by about 20 cm since 1900, which has been caused by thermal expansion and ice melt, while there;’s now more liquid water stored on land than in 1900. (3/n)
