JUST IN: #BNNSwitzerland Reports.

According to Swiss Re's @SwissRe estimate on Thursday, Hurricane Ian and other natural disasters have resulted in estimated insured losses of $115 billion so far this year, well above the 10-year average of $81 billion. #Switzerland #Environment Image
According to the report, natural and man-made disasters caused $268 billion in economic damage, of which $122 billion was covered by insurance, making 2022 one of the most expensive years yet for the sector.
Ian, a category-4 hurricane that hit Florida in September, was the year's single largest loss-causing event, with an estimated insured loss of $50-65 billion.

As a follow-up to my article on the #WorldCup2022 for @PillarCatholic, a couple of notes on religious aspects of this tournament.
pillarcatholic.com/world-cup-feve…
1. This is the first time the World Cup is being played in a Muslim country, and only the second outside of the traditionally Christian world. The first was South Korea & Japan in 2002.
2. 2002 also marked the furthest a traditionally Muslim country ever progressed in the World Cup, with #Turkey placing 3rd, after beating South Korea in a very exciting game.

1/25.📜It’s day twelve of #COP27 and here is your daily #LossAndDamage focused thread. The intense negotiations on “funding arrangements" continue today after the release of a new text which contained a set of three options for a decision on a fund to address #LossAndDamage. 🧵
2/25. As summarised by @YebSano of @GreenpeaceSEA during @CANInt press conference these options equate to: “Option 1, we have a fund here. Option 2, we have a fund next year, Option 3, we don't have a fund, let's talk some more.”
3/25. However, it is very important to note — as we did earlier in an extensive thread— that “option number 1” is not in line with the G77 and China’s current proposal for an operating entity (be it a fund or facility) under the financial mechanism of the @UNFCCC.

I‘ve been exploring a public #parc in @MySwitzerland_e.

Relaxation after strenuous medical treatment is very important by my book.

~~~~~~~~~~
2/ The Permanent Mission of the Federal Democratic Republic of #Ethiopia to the United Nations Office at #Geneva and other International Organizations in #Switzerland has come across a statement released by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights on 18 October 2022.
3/ The Permanent Mission would have preferred to meet and brief the new High Commissioner before he opted to start his work with a press release against #Ethiopia.

We hope this does not herald a change of direction for the partnership #Ethiopia enjoyed with the #OHCHR.

🥶 Coupures de courant cet hiver en Europe :

Pourquoi cette situation ?
Quels sont les risques pour vous et vos proches ?
Comment s'y préparer en Belgique, France et Suisse ?
Comment l'éviter ?

🧵 Un fil sur les #blackout cet hiver

⚡ Pourquoi on a une coupure de courant ? Pour plein de raisons ! Je parle des interruptions d'alimentation électrique de plusieurs compteurs au niveau d'un département / région, lié à une trop forte demande en électricité par rapport à la production et aux importations.

2/26
Si vous vous intéressez au monde de l'énergie, vous savez que la situation énergétique est très tendue en Europe depuis la reprise-COVID, l'invasion de l'Ukraine, et dans une moindre mesure les problèmes de corrosion du parc nucléaire français.

I've scheduled my #SARSCoV2 COVID-19 bivalent booster! 🗓️💉How about you?

Even with immune-evasive variants, vaccinations can still help boost your protection, especially from bad outcomes! Every little bit might make the difference this autumn - you can help! 😁✊🏻
If, like me, you live somewhere where only the BA.1 bivalent is currently available, I would still recommend it. We don't know what variant may dominate, (but it's likely Omicron, like BA.1), & given how things are looking, I wouldn't wait for 2023 to get boosted.
Finally, if you recently (~3 months) had SARS-CoV-2 (in most places, likely BA.5), you likely still are still benefiting from the immunity from infection & so most advice is to wait a bit to get boosted!

What should we expect from #SARSCoV2 this autumn?

I think it would be smart to prepare for both an increase in #COVID19 due to seasonal (behavioural) change & a new variant.
As so many others have elegantly illustrated, new lineages of SC2 are sparking interest.

1/17
Up front, I want to give a huge shout-out to @CorneliusRoemer who does a fantastic job keeping an eye on variants, particularly for @nextstrain & #Switzerland. But also for fantastic tireless work by @PeacockFlu @theosanderson @siamosolocani @SolidEvidence & more

2/17
Since the dominance of BA.5 (22B), most of the world hasn't seen much else move in (though in some places BA.4/22A hangs on), with the exception of India & BA.2.75 (22D).

In September, the Fund for the AFG People was established in Geneva with the support of the US& Switzerland. The purpose of the foundation is to receive, protect, preserve for the future& partially disburse part of the Afghan central bank's frozen assets.

Let's talk electricity.

Europe is in danger of rolling electricity shortages from what I call a crisis of confidence.

I will explain why, back it with data & kindly ask YOU to share it as the fix lies in voting for balanced policies. We must adapt, urgently!

For those of you short of time, attached a brief summary of the issue at hand.

I was asked to compare the 1970ies energy crisis with today's for a Turkish newspaper. My answer below.

For those of you with time, please read on.

The European electricity grid is a modern miracle. It is the largest synchronous electrical grid (by connected power) in the world. It interconnects 520 million end-customers in 32 countries, including non-European Union members such as Morocco or Turkey.
