"We speak with world-renowned environmental leader and ecologist Dr. Vandana Shiva about #ClimateChange, #SeedSovereignty and her new book, “Oneness vs. the 1%.” Shiva is an Indian scholar, physicist, and food sovereignty and seed freedom advocate. She was was born in Doon Valley in the Himalayan foothills."
...but it is facing a harsh realty where human-induced climate change – including #FlashFloods, #droughts, #heatwaves, #typhoons and #landslides– is increasingly #threatening #agriculture, which also provides livelihoods for over 40 per cent of the #global #population.
At the age of 12 she attended the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro along with group members of ECO, Michelle Quigg, Vanessa Suttie, and Morgan Geisler, to present environmental issues from a youth perspective.
THIS WAS 1992.
The difference, this time the youth is putting much more pressure up, and are not trusting politicians making claims whom they can't be hold accountable.
"Wir brauchen eine neue Art zu denken"
Ein gewaltiges Zeichen setzten am vergangenen Freitag über 1,4 Millionen junge Menschen, die sich auf allen Kontinenten an Schulstreiks und Demonstration für Klimaschutz beteiligt haben. Damit hat die Bewegung "#FridaysForFuture" gezeigt, dass sie sich wohl kaum einfach wieder in Luft auflösen wird.

Die ärmsten der Welt sind dem #Klimawandel schutzlos ausgeliefert.
Die Sonne ist ein schwarzer Strahler und leuchtet grün, obwohl ihr Licht eigentlich weiß ist. Für all das gibt es eine Formel, und der #Klimawandel ist auch dabei...
A thunderstorm west of Weipa which formed in an outer rainband of 🌀 Severe Tropical Cyclone Trevor has deeper convection at this time than the core of Trevor, partly because this rainband is over the Gulf of Carpenteria which is between 29-31ºC and Trevor has already made landfall so it is cut off from directly taping its energy source, though the rainband may keep it a bit more fed, it still going to weaken but once out in the gulf it should reintensify.

''People keep asking me ”what is the solution to the #climatecrisis.” And how do we ”fix this problem”. They expect me to know the answer.
That is beyond absurd as there are no ”solutions” within our current systems.
We can’t just lower or heighten some taxes or invest in some ”green” funds and go on like before.''
We need a whole new way of thinking. The political system that you have created is all about competition. You cheat when you can because all that matters is to win. To get power. That must come to an end. We must stop competing with each other. We need to start cooperating and sharing the remaining resources of this planet in a fair way. We need to start living within the planetary boundaries, focus on equity and take a few steps back for the sake of all living species.
We are just passing on the words of the science. Our only demand is that you start listening to it. And then start acting.'' @gretathunberg
Die Stadt und das #Klimarisiko
Wie kann man auf Hitze und Wasser urbanistisch reagieren?
When 90% of a city gets wiped out, you might think it would merit just a little coverage by our news media? Doh! Sorry, it's in Africa. Therefore off the media map, unless it's terrorism. https://www.africanews.com/2019/03/18/90-percent-of-mozambican-city-of-beira-destroyed-by-cyclone-idai-red-cross/
The windspeed measurements at Lockhart River Air Port Weather Observatory are now sharply increasing as they begin to enter the North West Quadrant Eyewall.
Winds now are 100kts [185km/h, 116mph] in the eyewall meaning it is now a Category 3 Tropical Cyclone on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale, making it a Major Hurricane (>Cat 3), it is still Category 3 Severe Tropical Cyclone on the Australian Tropical Cyclone Scale.
Trevor has now become the strongest Storm of the 2018-19 Australian Region Tropical Cyclone Season.
*BOM warns wind gusts at the core of cyclone Trevor may reach 220kph
*Some Lockhart River residents have been #evacuated to temporary shelters
*Parts of Far North Queensland are preparing for days of heavy #rain and possible #flooding
The Bangsamoro Autonomous Regioin in Muslim Mindaao (BARMM) is bracing for typhoon #Chedeng which is expected to affect the island provinces of Basilan, Sulu and Tawi-tawi by Tuesday, March 19.
If done wrong, climate action could threaten water quality and cause increased eutrophication. Luckily, win-win solutions are possible.
Societal decisions about #ClimateMitigation will have dramatic impacts on eutrophication in the 21st century
Impacts of future changes to land use and land management on eutrophication are not well understood. Here, the authors examine these impacts over the 21st century and find that societal choices will have a huge impact on riverine total nitrogen loading for the continental United States and beyond.
We live in/on the same bubble - called earth.
