N95 masks help protect people from wildfire smoke & poor air quality, as well as Covid & other airborne viruses. N95 masks should be free for everyone, & at the very least, there should be mask mandates in healthcare settings. Are there any politicians who understand this?

Recent research analyzed "future wildfires burned areas & C emissions under #SolarGeoengineering & Shared Socioeconomic pathways (SSPs) scenarios & assessed how the different geoengineering approaches impact #fires."

Results are discussed in a 🧵 below ⬇️:
1/13 Image
The major conclusions and implications drawn from this study are as follows:
1️⃣ "The global total #wildfire burned A is projected to rise under the unmitigated scenario (SSP5-8.5) & drop under the 2 #geoengineering scenarios (#SolarIrradianceReduction & #StratosphericSulfateAerosols) based on a comparison of the averages of 2091–2100 as to 2021–2030."

Over 100 #Wildfires Burn Across #Trudeau-#UNfriendly Province, #Alberta | May 7
- A reminder that an #election approaches in this province, and that Danielle #Smith, the relatively new premier, has been a major #critic of the Trudeau government.… Image

I know, it’s just pure coincidence the province with 1.7 trillion barrels of #oil, with a premier who said they would get rid of the #carbontax, who said no to the fed #gun grab and who said no to the Fed interfering with resource devt
cc: @ WhiteCrkLumber
The forest #fires in #Alberta are serious, all the jibber jabber from the left blaming #Smith or the Forestry is just that, J-j. In Modern history never have so many fires started at all once so close to so many communities.

Very proud of this team effort "A regional integrated assessment of the impacts of #climatechange and of the potential #adaptation avenues for #Quebec’s #forests" is now published

A (very long) thread. Buckle up!…

@cflscf @NRCan

First, I would like to acknowledge the work of all my colleagues including Jesus, Annie Claude, Yves, @mariehbrice, @DominicCyr, Louis, Daniel, @GauthierSylvie9 , Pierre, @Guillemette_L , Mathieu, Maryse, Tadeusz, Martin-Hugues, @ethiffault , @Tremblay_Jun and Stephen
Quebec’s #forests goes from northern hardwood with sugar #maple, beech, hemlock in the south, to pure boreal black #spruce forests up north. Natural #disturbances, go from single-tree windthrow or mortality in the south, to large stand-replacing #fires in the north.

Excited to be sharing lessons learned from #American #wildfires and #disasters @imperialcollege.

Our friends in #Britain face some of the same #resilience challenges with #fire, #infrastructure, & #publichealth.

CAGB building, room 765
11.00 GMT

@NSF @WaterResearch @EPA
Thanks to Prof. @GuillermoRein @ImperialHazelab and everyone for organizing and participating in the seminar. I truly learned a lot. Some really brilliant and insightful researchers here in working on global building #fire and #wildfire challenges.
I even got to see aluminum composite burn, a material examined after the #GrenfellTowerFire.

I also learned about smoldering.

The large #wildfires in #Chile are spreading quickly across large areas of non-native plantations of radiata pine and eucalyptus, many of them planted by foreigners during a dictatorship. These maps show recent MODIS heat detections on top of mapping of plantations (purple). 1/x
Over 3 million acres of plantations were established in this region in the 80s and 90s. As seen in the American West, during severe weather, conifer tree farms burn like the sun. Even-aged forestry is turning out to be an ecological disaster, all over the globe. 2/x Source: Patagon Journal
The @FSC_IC has certified over 3M acres of Chilean plantations as being 'sustainably managed'. But as in the USA, they failed to imagine the potential scale of wildfire losses in managed forests. Wildfire is a structural problem in tree farms, not easily mitigated. 3/x

1/29. 📜NEW BRIEF: Today we launch “PASSED THE POINT OF NO RETURN: A Non-Economic #LossAndDamage (#NELD) Explainer” covering what #NELD is, why and how it happens, where it happens, who is most affected, and importantly, how we can respond.

🔗Get it here:…
2/29. The brief begins with a foreword by @UNFCCC NELs Expert Group Member @IrfanUllahCDO, who highlights that Non-Economic #LossAndDamage has been largely overlooked in climate negotiations and that urgent action is needed to address #NELD happening now e.g. The #PakistanFloods.
3/29. Then @DLodry of @LossDamageYouth shares the powerful story of his lived experience of Non-Economic #LossAndDamage in #Cameroon called "The Tears Of A Village River And Its Population" which tells how climate-intensified #Drought can lead to a loss of #Culture and #Identity.

#bced Pro-D. The chair gave me time to explain what this thing was , humming in the middle of our circle of 27 mostly unmasked teachers. I said it was a #science project. We had #wildfires which gave us choking smoke....1/ #covid19bc #CorsiRosenthalBox
...It was built by the #science class. I shared that the #CorsiRosenthalBox can breath in >1000x more air than our lungs so any wildfire smoke, pollution or airborne diseases like flu, or covid is more likely to be caught here before we breathe it in! #bced After I presented 2/
after I presented, a teacher took a pic of it & asked me how to make it. I promised her a link to how to make a #CorsiRosenthalBox so she could make one with her child. Next, the humanities teacher borrowed the #science dept CO2 monitor , &the math teacher borrowed my monitor 3/ aranet4 showing 566ppm

#climatechange🌍🌡 is the greatest threat to human #health👩⚕️. 
Here are 5 ways climate change is impacting our health and how the future could look like if no action is taken. 
A 🧵. 1/11
#climatechange #globalwarming #savetheplanet #climate #climatecrisis #climatechangeisreal
1. Extreme Heat🌡: Heat waves are deadly⚰. One study attributed more than 1/3 of heat-related deaths to climate change. Future warming could result in an additional 2K - 10K deaths/year in each of 209 U.S. cities. 2/11
Heart attacks & strokes can result from prolonged exposure to heat. The heart has to work harder to pump blood and minerals are lost through sweat. Extreme heat can also worsen pre-existing conditions such as kidney damage, especially for vulnerable populations such as 👴👵. 3/11

Ιστοριούλα του παρελθόντος


Πυρκαγιά ξεκινά απ'τη "Δροσιά",λίγο έξω απ'την Ανάβυσσο λόγω εργασιών κατασκευής καγκελόπορτας.
7αρι εκείνη τη μέρα.
Δυστυχώς έλειπα στην Αθήνα, κι επιστρέφω εσπευσμένα στην περιοχή.
Η φωτιά, φτάνει περι τις 5 εδώ, σπάζοντας σε 3 μικρά μέτωπα.
Μαζί με 5 οχήματα, καταφέρνουμε να την ανακόψουμε & να σώσουμε τις επόμενες 2 οικίες και απ'το να πέσει στις υπόλοιπες. Image
Απασχολούμαστε στα 2 μεσαία τόξα και καταφέρνουμε μετά απο 2 ώρες,να τα ανακόψουμε.

Βλάστηση: Πεύκα, είχαν καει το 1985 κι είχαν πια τριπλασιαστεί με φυσική αναδάσωση.
Περνάμε λίγο μετά τον λόφο απέναντι και κάνουμε κατάσβεση αυτό το κομμάτι που απειλούσε τουλάχιστον 3 σπίτια Image

Wow....where is the high elevation smoke moving into the Western United States from? The smoke is the hazy slow moving mass moving in from the W/NW This will be a thread explaining what is happening. #azwx #smoke #wildfires2022Russia
This is an image from April 19th, 2022 of large wildfires/other fires from Siberia/Russia. The red dots show hot spots, with at least one large wildfire on the left side of the image. (courtesy of Fire Info for Resource Management System). #azwx #smoke #wildfires2022Russia
Here is a zoomed in image of one of the larger fires from the same day with significant smoke production moving east. #smoke #weather

The IPCC Climate Change 2022: Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability was released today. I'm going to go through the executive summary and post some "highlights". #IPCC #IPCCReport… 2/
- #Dengue risk will increase with longer seasons and a wider geographic distribution in #Asia, #Europe, Central and South America and sub-Saharan #Africa, potentially putting additional billions of people at risk by the end of the century
- A billion people projected to be at risk from coastal-specific climate hazards in the mid-term under all scenarios, including in Small Islands. #ClimateCrisis #ClimateEmergency

I was live on @BBCNews last night talking about the language of #climate change. Here's a thread of short clips. First, I was asked to address what we call it: #ClimateChange #ClimateCrisis #ClimateEmergency #GlobalWarming Great to talk with @bbcdavideades!
Then we discussed a great term: #GlobalWeirding. Because human-caused #climate disruption is so much more than warming. It's the increased frequency & intensity of #extremeweather #heavyrain #Heatwaves #Wildfires #drought #flooding and more.
I explained why #greenhouse gases or #GHGs are not a great term for the public and why I prefer heat-trapping #pollution - it explains the mechanism.
