Hoy conversé con Vozpópuli sobre los incendios forestales, el transporte vertical de sus emisiones y las consecuencias de que éstas alcancen la estratosfera. Aquí la nota:

Global Ocean Circulation Appears To Be Collapsing Due To A Warming Planet
Climate Change and Land
"The world is running out of sand, and people are dying as a result".
Welcome to mastodon everyone! I love seeing all this art posted. But we do have some folks on here who don't see well, and they really appreciate it if you add a description to your images. Just briefly what you're showing people, so that they have some idea what they're looking for.
I know sometimes it seems like too much work, and if you can't you can't. But it does make your work accessible to more people, not least because more of us will boost it.
Protecting coastal cities will cost billions of dollars over the next few decades, but who pays?

Siberian forest fires 🔥 are producing massive amounts of #BlackCarbon that will accelerate ice melting in the Arctic. These fires are a global issue right now.
@jorge Two years ago, the University of Hawai'i published a paper on the future regularity of #HeatWaves. They projected, that by 2100 about a third of the world's population will be exposed to unbearable heat for most of the year (red areas: > 200 days/year with possibly > 40°C). People in these areas are amongst the most vulnerable and the effects on agriculture... the only way to cope with this is by helping nature adapt to it and try making a living of what remains... or #ActNow, of course.
"The World Health Organization predicts that, starting in 2030, there will be an additional 250,000 annual deaths around the world because of climate change, caused by growing malnourishment, malaria, diarrhea and heat stress. Over a half-billion people live in the Middle East and North Africa today, regions that Tanarhte warns could ultimately become uninhabitable".
FAO's report and summary on #biodiversity for food and agriculture 🌾 🦗 🥦
Mansions, superyachts, luxury cars, and private jets produce more carbon emissions than whole countries. Researchers are calling it “green crime.”
Some promotion to one of our studies :)
"By 2050, without an end to human deforestation, the overall area of the #Amazon rainforest was predicted to drop by half".
A comprehensive essay on the degrowth vs. Green New Deal debate.
#ClimateChange is almost too big a problem to study. The solution? Volcanoes. 🌋
"As #CO2 has built up in the atmosphere over the past decades, many tree species have also been growing faster. By taking carbon out of the atmosphere and locking it away in their bodies, trees have partially been making up for the CO2 we continue to spew from our power plants, tailpipes, and factories".
Focus on atmospheric particulate matter.
