(1) I love forests for their beauty, the peace and calm I feel when I walk on forest trails, and their role in preserving biodiversity and the climate.

Today, I was reminded twice how diverse other people's attitudes toward natural forests may be.

Start of a thread 🧡

(2) First, according to a BBC Panorama investigation, I learned that a firm that has received six billion pounds in green energy subsidies from UK taxpayers is cutting down forests that are essential to the Canadian ecology.

🧡 #forests #nature

(3) Reporters concluded that millions of tons of imported wood pellets, classified as renewable energy, are burned at Drax's largest power plant in Britain. However, part of the wood came from Canada's old-growth forests, which took thousands of years to develop.

(1) Today's story was the destruction caused by Hurricane Ian in Florida. It is one of the strongest hurricanes ever to strike Florida, and in the coming days, we will learn more about the damage and victims.

🧡 Beginning of a thread

(2) Expect lots of shocking photos and heartbreaking videos on social media that will remind us of the power of nature, specifically when boosted by the additional energy we have trapped in the system.

🧡 #IanHurricane #Hurricane_Ian

(3) Man-made climate change has raised sea levels and warmed the oceans, which fueled Ian to a hurricane that, at a certain point, was just two mph shy of a Category 5.

(1/) Pakistan's horror floods are our horror floods too

A thread 🧡

(2/) The Planet newsletter:

The Pakistan floods are not an isolated incident for the back page of your newspaper. The scale, and relevance for all of us, should make this the main headline wherever you live.

(3/) This summer was marked by extreme weather events all over the northern hemisphere. As a reader of this newsletter, you have likely experienced this too. For instance, many European readers will remember the record-breaking drought in Western Europe.

(1/16) For over 1000 years, people from all over Europe have walked through Spain to Santiago de Compostela. This summer, I followed in the footsteps of millions but with an extra challenge:

Spain has been facing the driest conditions for at least 1200 years.

(3/16) I needed a break from my usual focus on the climate and water crises, so I took five weeks to hike more than 800 kilometers (500 miles) from the French Pyrenees to the northwest of Spain.

I wanted to focus on my health, the beauty of nature, and people I would meet.
