Computer resources more polluting than air travel

One for the activists to mull over.

I'm expecting to see push back from all the tech giants.

2 how can we change these at individual scale (quantitative approach)

Pleased to see a change in emphasis in the news on this morning. 10am bulletin reported warmest September in UK with no mention of followed by report of disrupting performance (again with no connection between the two items). 11am bulletin had a much more in-depth report on the warmest September with recognition of climate change.

The PM has a reputation for being good with numbers and as a Goldman Sachs investment specialist seeing where they are pointing.

This is not difficult from this chart - and many others. That this points to needing immediate action and not kicking into the the net 2050 long grass.

Pardon! My frustration is with the situation, *not with you.*

We keep hearing the call for action, but the experts do not mention Dr. Hansen's policy solution.

If they disagree with the need for fees AND dividends -- they should at least explain why.

Scientists looked at nearly every known amphibian type. They're not doing great

"Discovered or not, the study found that the status of amphibians globally is 'deteriorating rapidly,' earning them the unenviable title of being the planet's most threatened class of vertebrates."

Pontifex today on denial

"The ethical decadence of real power is disguised thanks to marketing and false information, useful tools in the hands of those with greater resources to employ them to shape public opinion."

"To the powerful, I can only repeat this question: What would induce anyone, at this stage, to hold on to power, only to be remembered for their inability to take action when it was urgent and necessary to do so"

Gobsmackingly bananas: scientists stunned by planets record September heat
The carbon emissions driving the climate crisis and rapid arrival of an El Nio event are to blame, researchers say
Global temperatures soared to a new record in September by a huge margin, stunning scientists and leading one to describe it as absolutely gobsmackingly bananas.

Copernicus: September 2023 unprecedented temperature anomalies 2023 on track to be the warmest year on record

September-2023 temperatures above average in France.

It was country wide, from 1.4c to 5.2c above the norms.

(Stats : Meteo France)

After a summer of record-breaking heat, the abnormally hot weather continued into September setting a new mark for the level above a normal temperature for the time of year, the EU's climate change agency reported Thursday.

The Copernicus Climate Change Service said the global average temperature for September broke records by such an absurd margin that climate experts are struggling to describe the phenomenon.

By mikehudema "This is the new extinction & we are half way through it."

"We are in terrible, terrible trouble and the longer we wait to do something about it, the worse it is going to get." Sir Correct

No time to wait.

Growing up up, the first frosts of the year were usually late September with snows on and off from November. Nowadays it's unusual to see a frost at all, with snow a rarity.

This is mind boggling

September 2023 unprecedented anomalies.

2023 on track to be the warmest year on record.

September was around 1.75C warmer than the September average for 1850-1900, the preindustrial reference period.

The global temperature for January-September 2023 was 0.52C higher than average, and 0.05C higher than the equivalent period in the warmest calendar year (2016).

2023 on track to be the hottest year as September shatters heat records

"2023 (...) on track to be the warmest year and around 1.4 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial average temperatures"

New data shows average global temperatures in September were not just the hottest ever recorded, but 0.5C above the previous record for the month. They were about 1.8C above temperatures in pre-industrial times, before humans started pumping vast amounts of heat-trapping greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.

Gobsmackingly bananas

apparently that is now a scientific expression

Everyone posting this title, and it's excellent, but alas we especially need to heed the last paragraph of the article.

Gobsmackingly bananas: scientists stunned by planets record September heat

We are forecast to get hot rain on Monday & Tuesday. That's unusual for California, period, but in October!

The unprecedented temperatures for the time of year observed in September have broken records by an extraordinary amount. 2023 is on track to be the warmest year and about 1.4C above pre-industrial average temperatures. Two months out from the UN climate conference Cop28, the sense of urgency for ambitious climate action has never been more critical.
