Some #heatwave news from Europe.
Here in Geneva, tomorrow's end-of-year school parade for schools in the city has been cancelled. A lovely tradition where the children march through the city together. They have been working on their displays for weeks. 1/

In this thread, @giulio_mattioli explained how his child's kindergarten in Dortmund, Germany, is caught between a poisonous invasive species and a massive heatwave - both driven by climate breakdown. 2/
Several colleagues in Germany worried about the schools and kindergartens not being safe for children in 38-39 degree weather, and having to deal with having kids in overheated homes - as well as not being able to do their jobs. 3/
[Aside: I'm sure these types of multiplications of impacts were taken into account in Nordhaus' Nobel-worthy model of the paltry economic costs of climate inaction. Fear not, for the economists have decided all this is worth the temporary profits.] 4/
Meanwhile, my brain is constantly puzzled at the fact that people are still driving cars to work. The only acceptable destination for ICE traffic jams should be the car => electric bicycle factories set up in every city in the world. #climatevision /End

Also on a purely petty basis, I am getting #ClimateWrinkles corresponding to having this range of expression 😡☹️😢😱🙄😬😦😩😖😣😱😭😵🤬😡🤯😥, rather than the laugh/evil smirk wrinkles 😀😆😝🤪😏 I was looking forward to.
Also because of weather succession of unseasonal cold followed by torrential downpour storm hellrain followed by monster heatwave, I haven't been able to take my kid on my favorite hike up the Salève yet this year. Rubbishness.
