Drigung Monastery, #Tibetan monastery famous for performing sky burials

Photographed by 📸Mark Evans in November 2005
Sky burial (Tibetan: བྱ་གཏོར་,"bird-scattered") is a funeral practice in which a human corpse is placed on a mountaintop to decompose while exposed to the elements or to be eaten by scavenging animals, especially carrion birds.
It is a specific type of the general practice of excarnation. It is practiced in the Chinese provinces and autonomous regions of #Tibet, Qinghai, Sichuan, and Inner Mongolia, as well as in Mongolia, Bhutan, and parts of India such as Sikkim and Zanskar.

4 Tage nach den #Erdbeben in der #Türkei und in #Syrien liegt die Zahl der Todesopfer derzeit bei 21.500 (orangene Linie).

4 Tage nach dem #Erdbeben 2008 in #Sichuan (M7.9) in #China lag die Zahl der gemeldeten Todesopfer in etwa genauso hoch (blaue Linie).

Das #Erdbeben 2008 in #Sichuan (M7.9) in #China tötete insgesamt 88.000 Menschen (69,2k Tote/18,8k Vermisste).

Beide Ereignisse weisen mehrere Ähnlichkeiten auf:
- Die meisten Todesopfer sind/waren auf den Einsturz mehrstöckiger Gebäude zurückzuführen.

- Magnituden und Erschütterungsausmaß ähnlich
- Hohe Bevölkerungsdichten
- Menschliche Entwicklung
- Beide Länder verfügen über erdbebensichere Bauvorschriften und haben aufgrund zahlreicher Ereignisse in der Vergangenheit ein Bewusstsein für die Erdbebengefahr

In 2022, #coal use for power & #steel production in #China has dropped. The target to peak #CO2emissions means it must fall more, yet investments in coal power & coal-based steel plants have increased.

Our new report w/@GlobalEnergyMon looks at what's happening. Image
In the first half of 2022, China’s local governments approved 28 new coal-power units, with 15 gigawatts of capacity, while Chinese steel firms announced 16 new coal-based steelmaking projects in the same period, the most since 2019, with a capacity of 30 million tonnes/year.
Steel emissions are due to peak by 2025. Emissions are falling now & there is little scope for them to increase before the peaking deadline. The steel emission peak target also means China can't use the infrastructure & construction push it used for previous economic slowdowns.

The images coming out of #Chongqing are apocalyptic. Mass #coronavirus PCR tests being carried out as bushfires rage following months of heatwave with a record drought threatening crops and severely limiting much needed hydroelectricity. #China
Some more info on the vast drought across southern #China
Large queues with what appear to be hundreds of fire fighters lining up for #coronavirus PCR tests in #Chongqing. This shows the priority being placed on zero #Covid in #China. Even as fires rage through forests, emergency teams must participate in mass testing.

This weekend, @NishiDholakia @AntiokhosE and I explored the largest & most confounding #Neolithic site in China: #Shimao. A massive fortified stone city in an unexpected place, w/ objects from far afield, and grizzly human sacrifices. Vibrant until abandoned around 1800BCE 1/
This first mystery of #Shimao was the location: the city was built on the Northern Loess Plateau, relatively dry and far from the lush Yellow River “cradle of Chinese civilisation”. What might attract a large #Neolithic population to create a major city in such a place? 2/
The second mystery was the building material. #Archaeologists associated this period in #China with rammed earth structures. But this #Neolithic city - built in 2300 BCE - was made of #stone, dominated by a 20 tiered oblong stepped #pyramid structure on the highest hill 3/

Not sure how on the radar this is for you but the #Chinaflooding season starts in 13 days and it’s already a catastrophe.

An interesting analysis of the situation.
