WLT launches new video with Sir David #Attenborough
World Land Trust launches a video, featuring our patron Sir David Attenborough asking:
What can an individual do in the face of #ClimateChange?
Johan Rockström: Safe Future for Humanity on Earth
A safe future for humanity on Earth can only be achieved on a healthy planet. #Climate stability depends on a transition from incremental to transformative change. Science is clear: The world needs to follow exponential pathways in all sectors of society. This requires deep innovation, social transformation and a fundamental policy shift.
"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."

Seit 4,5 Milliarden Jahren gibt es die Erde, den Menschen erst seit 160.000 Jahren. Aber er hinterließ tiefere Spuren als alle anderen Lebewesen. Seit der #Industrialisierung haben #Wissenschaft und #Technik die Erde fest im Griff. Und dabei werden wir immer mehr …
DREI Tage verbleiben zur Mitzeichnung für #Petition94357. Bis zum 23.07.2019 läuft die #ePetition zur Ausrufung eines bundesweiten #Klimanotstand'es innerhalb der nächsten drei Monate zum Erreichen einer effektiven #Klimapolitik.
Die Anzahl der Online-MitzeichnerInnen liegt mit 54206 nur knapp über den für das Quorum notwendigen 50000. Das ist noch kein starkes Zeichen!
Die #Klimakrise sorgt für einen neuen Look der Schienen in #Österreich: Die @unsereOEBB@twitter.com streichen die Gleise jetzt weiß an. Dadurch wird die Gleistemperatur um bis zu acht Grad verringert. Schienenverdrückungen, Gleisverwerfungen und andere Hitzeschäden lassen sich so vermeiden.
The spike in emissions as temperatures rise is a characteristic of the nation’s electric grids. Many of the #dirtiest #coal- and #oil-fired #power #plants sit idle for most of the year, because it doesn’t pay to run them. That changes on hot days.
Still the most accurate *and* evenly contextualized news summary of the IPCC's October 2018 report, 'Global Warming of 1.5 °C'...
...according to researcher review of 2018 news articles...
The actual IPCC SR15 report:
UK mining companies have diverted the Bruno River in La Guajira, Colombia, to extract deadly coal. This is climate violence. Take action in solidarity with indigenous Wayuu and Afro-descendant communities defending their land and water.
Chief Secretary (CS) Sindh Syed Mumtaz Ali Shah has said that Tree plantation is the only way to save the world from the danger of #GlobalWarming.
He said this while inaugurating tree plantation campaign "Sarsabz Sindh" by planting a Neem tree along with provincial administrative secretaries and school children in National Museum, Burns Garden on Thursday said a statement.

It will also create a spike in carbon emissions, as the use of fossil fuels by people seeking to cool down expands.
The reason summer nights have been warming faster than summer days, Arndt says, has to do with the structure of the atmosphere at night. “The layer of air in contact with ground is smaller at night. In the night when the atmosphere is typically less active and doesn’t mix to the depths that it does during the day, that additional warming effect can be amplified at night.
MP Urges Urgent Release of Cyclone Victims' Death Certificates
An MP has called on government to put in place mechanisms that would allow relatives of death victims of #Cyclone #Idai and survivors of the natural disaster to access relevant identity documents in the form of deaths and birth certificates which were destroyed during the storm.
Monsoon rains, drought and landslides are some of the environmental disasters afflicting the lives of #SriLanka•ns
In recent weeks, the countries around the #BayOfBengal have been hit by severe #monsoon rains. #Landslides and bad #weather have affected more than 567,000 people in nine Sri Lankan provinces. The country’s west coast is also on full alert, whilst fishermen have been warned not to venture into the sea.
#Arctic summer melt shows ice is disappearing faster than normal
Ice floes are losing an extra 20,000 km2 of cover per day - about the size of Wales.
Ice covering the Arctic Ocean reached the second-lowest level recorded for this time of year after July temperatures spiked in areas around the #NorthPole.
Even if all fossil fuel production and consumption ended today, the fallout from 50 years of delay caused by industry obfuscation will have ramifications for humans and other species for centuries or even millennia. If disruptive climate change continues unabated, the impacts on the planet may be essentially irreversible, at least as far as any humanly relevant scale
"#Exxon and other #fossil #fuel companies’ own research showed in the 1960s, 70s and 80s that a doubling of #anthropogen•ic atmospheric #CO2 would likely cause “major shifts in rainfall/agriculture,” polar ice melt, coupled with “3°C global average temperature rise and 10°C at poles.”
#Pollution is also a problem here.
Wine output in #France, the world’s second largest producer, may fall by as much as 13% this year after vineyards were hit by adverse #weather including #hail, #frost and a record-breaking #heatwave, the farm ministry said on Friday.
Earth experienced warmest June on record
The US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (#NOAA) has confirmed that the Earth just had the warmest June on record. This is in line with the other major datasets from NASA, the European Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecast Copernicus Climate Change Service and Japan Meteorological Agency.
Both land and sea surface temperatures were the highest on record.
