GRACE-FO Shows the Weight of Midwestern Floods

So all those #ClimateChangeDeniers in the US #Government right now who are using #Jesus to justify making #ClimateChange worse for personal #Profits, they did this.

Arctic News: The changing face of planet Earth

The inhabitants of planet Earth are in the process of destroying the habitability of their world through the perpetration of the largest mass extinction of species since 66 million years ago, when a large asteroid impacted Earth, and 55 million years since the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM) reaching 5–8°C. The late Holocene-Anthropocene climate change represents an unprecedented event, triggering a fast shift in climate

That’s why #FridayForFuture is important and why we should support @GretaThunberg and all the others as much as we can.

Imagine what SLR does to poorer countries.
Two amazing and inspiring women making a difference for the good of the planet and everyone who calls it their home 🌍💚✌️ We hope to make it over to Plymouth tomorrow to wish @gretathunberg a safe voyage across the Atlantic Ocean to New York.
She is embarking on a 2 week sailing trip on a 60ft racing yacht to travel using clean energy ... What a mission and isn't she living with such conviction!
If Greta does so can we... Everyday we all have to make choices, let's make time to really think over those carefully and become aware of what we choose and how that impacts the Earth and everything on it.
Take it seriously...we can work together to make a change 🌈

AS A dairy #cow, I feel much maligned by misconceptions concerning my contribution to climate change. Plants and trees are nature’s way of dealing with carbon emissions, but this process produces #cellulose, a #carbohydrate you humans are unable to digest. However, I love to eat it and I convert it into #milk and beef, which you enjoy as part of your balanced diet. I do apologise for the methane I produce, but have your scientists told you that this breaks down naturally and is reabsorbed by plants, thus completing a natural cycle? Because of better breeding, I produce more milk and meat than my grandparents did, so fewer cows are needed, hence our #carbonfootprint has actually decreased. I do wish you humans would acknowledge that 80 per cent of greenhouse gasses come from the fossil fuel-consuming industries, which include factories producing processed #soya, almond and other somewhat artificial drinks masquerading as milk!

Greenland’s ice sheet shrunk more in past month than in average year, experts warn

The frozen extremities of the northern hemisphere are melting at a near-record rate as heatwaves buffet the Arctic, forest fires tear through Siberia and glaciers retreat on Greenland fjords and Alpine peaks.

Unusually high temperatures are eating into ice sheets that used to be solid throughout the year, according to glaciologists, who warn this is both an amplifying cause and effect of man-made climate disruption across the globe.

A year after Greece’s deadliest wildfire tore through coastal towns near Athens, killing 102 people, the road to normality for survivors is long and scarred by scorched homes and barren land. The resort of Mati, a wooded area overlooking sparkling sea east of the capital, was popular with children at summer camps. On the first anniversary of the disaster, it resembles a ghost town

Wildfires Ravaging The Arctic Right Now Are So Intense, You Can See Them From Space

"The Arctic is warming twice as fast as the rest of the planet, and after the hottest June ever recorded on Earth, the region is literally on fire."

"From Greenland to Siberia to Alaska, huge swathes of flame and smoke are wrapping themselves around the upper Northern Hemisphere of our planet, like a suffocating scarf."

Party calls for Hitzefrei - heat-free - leave for workers to cope with high temperatures

Germany’s Green party has proposed stay-at-home working to help the nation cope with record temperatures.

Just as other Europeans have found themselves struggling to deal with unprecedented heat levels, Germans have also been trying to find ways to cool off. “Heat-free home office days” are the latest suggestion.

Heat building from central France as Paris predicted to reach all-time high of 42C

All-time temperature records are set to be broken in major cities across Europe on Thursday as the second extreme heatwave in consecutive months to be linked by scientists to the climate emergency grips the continent.

“The most extreme heat will build from central and northern France into Belgium, the Netherlands and far-western Germany” from Wednesday, said Eric Leister of the forecasting group AccuWeather.

Scientists Unveil Memorial to Iceland's 'First' Dead Glacier Lost to Climate Change

‘Letter to the future’ warns that all glaciers will share fate of Okjökull without urgent action

The first of Iceland’s 400 glaciers to be lost to the climate crisis will be remembered with a memorial plaque – and a sombre warning for the future – to be unveiled by scientists and local people next month.

The former Okjökull glacier, which a century ago covered 15 sq km (5.8 sq miles) of mountainside in western Iceland and measured 50 metres thick, has shrunk to barely 1 sq km of ice less than 15 metres deep and lost its status as a glacier.
