I doubt Peter Dutton could be bothered explaining his climate change "policy".
Does the LNP have a climate change policy (not just one deserving of inverted commas)
I'm certain no one is capable of explaining anything Tony Abbott says. Except that it will be fodder for the RWNJs he cultivates.

My parents live in a coastal province, so I tried to warn them to be careful, only to be met with storm minimizing. Denial sure is the most popular coping strategy, isn't it

A new study led by James Hansen, the scientist who warned about in the 1980s, predicts that the world will reach 1.5C and 2C of warming by the 2020s and 2050s, respectively, due to Earths higher climate sensitivity and energy imbalance.

From the Guardian: Flash droughts are likely to become increasingly common, say researchers

Do you feel the planetary scale of the permacrises we face jars violently with your own cognition Like there's a yawning chasm between reality and our feelings

I do. The dissonance between the personal and the planetary is something that I find despairing, but also its fundamental to understand if we are to progress.

Anyway, I wrote something about it if you want to read.

Dutch article on the Hanssen paper

Looks like today's thermodynamics lecture, which features phase diagrams, falls with appropriate weather. It's going to be a very wet ride in to work.

While going through an old photo album looking for photos from my recently deceased mother's youth, I came across a number from 1929. The harsh winter in February 1929., it says. My grandmother, among others, is standing there on an iceberg at the Scheveningen beach the Netherlands. The old pier is frozen over with ice on the water surface.
Not even 100 years ago...

Bij het doorspitten van een oud foto-album op zoek naar fotos uit de jeugd van mijn pas overleden moeder, stuitte ik op een aantal uit 1929. De strenge winter in Februari 1929., staat er. Daar staat onder anderen mijn grootmoeder op een ijsberg op het stand van Scheveningen. De oude pier is op de waterspiegel aangevroren met ijs.
Nog maar koud 100 jaar geleden.

Today from the base of Mt. Everest, I saw for myself the terrible impact of the climate crisis on the Himalayas.

As temperatures rise, glacier melt increases - threatening the lives and livelihoods of entire communities.

cant wait.

The Earths climate is more sensitive to human-caused changes than scientists have realized until now, meaning that a dangerous burst of heating will be unleashed that will push the world to be 1.5C hotter than it was, on average, in pre-industrial times within the 2020s and 2C hotter by 2050.

I just left Nepal where I saw how glaciers are dramatically retreating.

We cannot retreat.

We need now to end the fossil fuel age.

Alaska is the new California, apparently. (This is not a good thing)

The Earth's climate is much more sensitive to both greenhouse gases and air pollution than the IPCC realises.

A monster eddy current is spinning into existence off the coast of Sydney and it could be trouble

Giant eddy currents in the sea spread heat. But if trapped in place, they can cause marine heatwaves deadly to sea life. And there's a big one shaping up off Sydney right now.

Despite feeling the heat, Indians optimistic about avoiding climate disaster

Although India saw record high temperatures this year, more than three-fourths of its people still remain hopeful about not having to face the dire consequences of climate change during their lifetime. Nearly 77% Indians feel optimistic about averting a climate disaster during their lifetime, well above the global average..

Climates Catch-22: Cutting air pollution heats up the planet

looks to me the typical field where humongous amount of heated discussion about where exactly the dangers lie, either on the short or long term, and tons of research all serves to slow things down endlessly until the dangers materialize. Where any person with vested interests deliberately sows confusion and others make their living on these discussions and research.

When burn scars become roaring earthen rivers
"Wildfires can lessen the soils ability to absorb water, so when thunderstorms, rapid snowmelt, atmospheric rivers or rain falling on snow occur in a burned area, that can create a roaring earthen river. Debris flows can move quickly 30 mph or more sliding from the uplands to the valley floor in a matter of minutes."

"It just goes to show the power that preserving and protecting something has, even if it is by chance."

Zeke Hausfather:
"It is simultaneously true that:

2) There is growing evidence of an acceleration in warming.
3) This year's temperatures are within the range of climate model projections, and models project some acceleration"
