An important part of mental health in academia is cultivating a life beyond it. Lately I've been volunteering at the nonprofit bike shop, helping scrap old bikes for parts & helping folks repair their rides. It's really fantastic doing grimey work with my hands!

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.

@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".


is almost too big a problem to study. The solution? Volcanoes. 🌋

"As 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".
