ECCA2023 conference - Over three days, more than 485 in person and more than 2,000 online viewers participated in June in nearly 70 parallel sessions across three landmark venues in Dublin, Ireland, at the 6th European Climate Change Adaptation (ECCA2023) conference.

If you regularly follow debates about public policy, especially those involving wealthy tech bros, its obvious that theres a strong correlation among the three Cs: climate denial, COVID-19 vaccine denial and cryptocurrency cultism.

Scientists Warn 1 Billion People on Track to Die From Climate Change

The fossil fuels that humanity burns today will be a death sentence for many lives tomorrow.

A recent review of 180 articles on the human death rate of climate change has settled on a deeply distressing number. Over the next century or so, conservative estimates suggest a billion people could die from climate catastrophes, possibly more.

Exxon says world set to fail 2C global warming cap by 2050

The abstract of this paper is the perfect example of why we need good . An important paper, but so much jargon itspainful.
Key messages:
1) mass in the has bloomed later & ended earlier (every year) over the past 25 years = shortening the season
2) less carbon is being taken up each year with serious implications for

Forestry science is owned by the lumber/pulp industry. Its sustainability promise is green flimflam.

There will never be enough big old trees now as are needed to help sequester carbon, and theres not much society can do about it under the runaway circumstances.

As individuals, we can stop chopping down trees for YouTube videos and log homes, avoid exotics, and use fallen and salvaged wood.

Hurricane Idalia intensifies to major Category 4 storm: Live updates

Idalia is now classified as a major hurricane. Storm surge damage from the powerful storm could stretch about 200 miles along Floridas west coast.

Good news, another young climate activist who is in favor of nuclear power and wants Greenpeace to change their attitude about it :

'Oil companies are paying popular influencers to pump their gas on social media, sparking a backlash from some climate-conscious fans for promoting planet-warming fossil fuels among young people. Young online celebrities best known for posting about video games, their dogs or their holidays to millions of followers are also dropping in unexpected plugs for gasoline stations, fuel rewards and club cards.'

Imagine you're person of 16 or 17 and a populist militarist political party, for eg, is campaigning to introduce compulsory military service for all citizens when they turn 18.
You' are denied the right to vote against that party yet be directly affected by the result of the election. That's how I see the effects of and the affecting our children's future. They are denied their right to vote by people who's futures aren't faced with the same dystopia.

Hurricane Idalia strengthened to a dangerous Category 3 storm

: "Exxon Mobil says the global effort to curtail greenhouse-gas emissions isnt on track to keep the planets temperature from rising beyond an increase of 2 degrees Celsius by 2050.
Carbon-dioxide emissions stemming from the worlds burning of fossil fuels and energy consumption will shrink to 25 billion metric tons in 2050, down 26% from a peak of 34 billion sometime in the current decade, the oil company said in an annual outlook on Monday.

Despite the decline, the trajectory would still keep worldwide carbon-dioxide output well above levels that the United Nations climate-science advisory body says would limit climate change and its most dangerous potential effects.

To achieve the targets outlined by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change the world needs emissions to drop to 11 billion metric tons on average by 2050, Exxon said. It added that the worlds current push to curb carbon-dioxide emissions by more than 25% by 2050 is a testament to the significant progress expected to be made, and would occur even as the global economy more than doubles in size."

Does anyone know where to find the data that was produced during the "Old Weather" projects

Me ha gustado mucho este artculo de Geoffrey Deihl sobre cmo pas su juventud en una zona rural y montaosa de EEUU mientras trabajaba en un sitio horrible.

We need to live smaller on the planet, there is no other way. The irony is, smaller makes life better. Thats one of the lessons I learned all those years ago in Columbia County. All I needed was a pond and a bicycle to be happy.

#1) Absolutely- for the good of the , people need to lay off the cow products.

#2) just took a day trip from Seattle to New York. His dumped *44 tons* of into the atmosphere for his day-long roundtrip.

The average human produces about 4 tons *each year* sooo stop eating beef, and start eating . It's BY FAR the most effective way to fight .

"This years coast-to-coast in have already emitted an estimated one-and-a-half billion tonnes of CO2. Thats triple the annual climate pollution from burning fossil fuels in Canada. Its more than the combined emissions from 100 nations. And there are still months of fire season looming ahead."

In this impressive demo of the consequences of rising sea levels by reddit user turbochuffa, he 3D scanned his hometown with a drone. He then used LumaAI and Unreal Engine to simulated the rising sea levels flooding the town.

Its sadly ironic that a state so supportive of regressive politics including anthropogenic climate change denial stands to suffer more than most because of it. Karma bites hard Major Hurricane Idalia set to hit Florida's Big Bend coast as Category 4 storm

Just found s position paper on and it is about as level headed and scientific as it gets.

Recommended reading for nuclear fans and foes alike.

If does turnout that the young climate activists are in fact a front group, Im guessing the financing is coming from a group that includes the government of which is super vested in the nuclear power industry.

Pure speculation on my part, though.
