👉Suite à mon travail postdoctoral sur le sujet au @cefemontpellier @twitthair1, un premier petit thread documenté sur un sujet brulant : l’#éolien et ses #impacts sur la #biodiversité. [partie 1/2]
👇🦇
2/24 - Il ne s’agit pas ici d’être « pour » ou « contre » le développement éolien, juste d’apporter des éléments de connaissances scientifiques publiés sur la question.
3/24 - En France, la loi de #transitionenergetique pour la croissance verte, promulguée le 18 août 2015, s’est fixée pour objectif d’atteindre 32 % d’#énergies #renouvelables dans la consommation totale d’énergie à l’horizon 2030.

Indian cities are not typically imagined to be biodiversity hotspots. Aspects of urban ecology often get missed in public conversations about the city.
In a series of illustrations, we explore the different dimensions of Bengaluru's lakes.

@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
