This rapid-fire sequence of extreme heat waves is not a trend that is going to end any time soon. A study late last year found that in just the last 10 to 15 years heat waves like this have become 10 times more likely—mostly due to human-caused climate change. the World Meteorological Organization and the World Health Organization, both United Nations organizations, issued their first-ever joint guidelines for dealing with the expected rise in heat waves and their increasing impact on public health. “Heatwaves have emerged as an important hydrometeorological hazard and will remain so, given projected changes in the frequency of extreme heat events associated with human-induced climate change,” the U.N. text warned. @climatechange @globalwarming@climatechangefrance

A Case Against Nuclear Energy as an Answer to Combat Global Warming.
Effectively addressing global warming requires a rapid transformation of the ways in which we produce and consume energy. The scope and impacts of climate change, including rising seas, more damaging extreme weather events, and severe ecological disruption, demand that we consider all possible options for limiting heat-trapping gas emissions, including their respective costs and timelines for implementation.
Nuclear power produces very few lifecycle carbon emissions howeverits role in combating climate change depends on overcoming substantial economic challenges and carries significant human health and environmental risks. Renewable energy technologies and energy efficiency measures can help dramatically cut the sector’s emissions, and are safe, cost-effective, and commercially available today.

Photo by @jbrussell for @everydayclimatechange  Gilets Jaunes (Yellow Vests) protesters are tear gassed by riot police during anti-government demonstrations on the Champs-Elysées in Paris. While the grassroots Gilets Jaunes movement in France has grown to represent a deep-seated discontent among the general population on a wide range of economic and social issues, it began as a protest against a proposed tax increase on diesel and petrol that the government justified as necessary for the transition to a more ecological and sustainable society and economy. Most people, at least those who still take facts and science seriously, know that global warming and climate change represent a severe crisis for humanity and that we must make profound changes in our way of life to avoid disaster, however many of these changes will be complicated, costly and, at least in the short to medium term, difficult. Developing countries who are bearing the brunt of climate change consequences often don’t have the means to adapt to and mitigate against climate change. The way of life and economies of developed nations are profoundly reliant on production, distribution and consumption systems that are the very cause of global warming. The economic disparities of the global economy means that lower and middle class citizens, even in wealthy countries, often struggle to maintain an acceptable standard of living, can not afford to suddenly “go green” in every aspect of their lives and will be hurt by “ecological taxes” and other measures necessary to fighting global warming, climate change and a transition to a sustainable world. Governments and civil society must develop a responsible, comprehensive strategy to deal with climate change because even in the best case scenario, the road ahead will be rough and tumultuous.

Photo by Ashley Crowther @ashleycrowtherorg for @everydayclimatechange: Forest in the clouds in the lower region of the Nepal Himalaya. Nepal has one of Asia’s highest deforestation rates due to an increasing population requiring fuel for basic necessities like cooking. This is especially prevalent in rural mountainous areas where many forests like these have been stripped down to nothing. 
Forests play crucial environmental roles such as sucking carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere and reducing the damaging effects of climate change. Furthermore, forests cool regional temperatures, and prevent soil erosions and landslides, which can both devastate communities nearby.
Forest protection is a crucial for the planets future and our health and safety.

Image by @sean_gallagher_photo A rooster jumps over a small water channel in a community in central Jakarta. Some of the city's poorest residents live just a metre or two above the waterline, often resulting in their communities being the most vulnerable to flooding. ▪▪▪ Located on the northern shores of the island of Java, the Indonesian capital of Jakarta is on the front line of climate change. The city is regularly engulfed by floods, which often submerge over a third of the city, bringing the world’s tenth most populous city to a standstill. With nearly 40% of the city lying beneath sea level, this deluge of water is not a rare event for the millions of Jakartans who live in this sprawling megalopolis. ▪▪▪As well as rising sea levels threatening the capital, the city itself is actually sinking as a result of groundwater extraction, exacerbating the flooding problem. The sinking is so severe that is occurring on average at 10cm per year however in certain parts of the city, the decline has been documented by as much as 30cm per year. ▪▪▪ It is estimated that up to a third of Jakarta could be underwater within the next 20-30 years. ▪▪▪ Images taken Spring, 2013 ▪▪▪ #asia #indonesia #java #jakarta #climatechange #flooding #risingseas #canon5diii

Stagnant, fouled pools of water stand beside a gold camp run by Brazilian "garimpeiros" artisanal miners in the deep Amazon in Suriname.  Bensdorp, Suriname.  Gold has a higher greenhouse gas emission rate per ton than any other metal.  It also leads to deforestation and unregulated artisanal miners, in particular, foul the water with highly toxic mercury which then enters the human food chain.  Industrial gold mining employs massive greenhouse gas-spewing machinery to crush rock - all for a metal feeding human vanity.

Brazilian “garimpeiros” handmade sluice box used to separate gold from the soil and river stones at the downstream outlet of an artificial pond of foul water.  Brazilian “garimpeiros” are artisanal miners working independently on Maroon land, scouring out entire watersheds, to extract gold from the riverbed using mercury (quicksilver) to enhance recovery of gold.  Large quantities of toxic, mercury is discharged into the watershed, which contaminates fish stocks, poisoning a primary source of protein for the local Maroon population.  In the end what is left is an inorganic poison wasteland where once stood one of the most diverse ecosystems on the planet.  Bensdorp, Suriname

Photo @ggkenya for @everydayclimatechange: Over half of Zambia’s population live in rural areas and depends on agriculture, forests and wildlife, and these resources are being lost at a fast pace,
Clearing forests for agriculture, charcoal and fuelwood production, are among the country’s main drivers of deforestation. Across Zambia, worsening impacts of climate change including more frequent and intense droughts and floods have led to food, water and energy insecurity, especially among the country's most vulnerable rural communities. To address these urgent challenges, the Government of Zambia, with support from the @worldbank, has launched a $33 million forest landscape program, the Zambia Integrated Forest Landscape Program to improve sustainable land management, diversify livelihoods options available to rural communities, including climate-smart agriculture and forest-based livelihoods, and reduce deforestation in the Zambia’s Eastern Province. An estimated 215,000 people will benefit directly from this program, and of these, at least 30 percent will be women,
“We simply can’t reach our goal of reducing emissions and mitigating climate change if we don’t place communities at the centre of this equation. If we start with improving how communities use and manage their land, we can increase their agriculture productivity while reducing forest loss and land conversion. That is change that is good for all—communities, government and the environment for generations to come,” says Neeta Hooda, the World Bank’s Senior Natural Resources Management Specialist,

Photo by @jbrussell for @everydayclimatechange  Traditional stilt fishermen off the southern coast of Sri Lanka. Scientists are warning that a warming of the Indian Ocean due to climate change could cause an ecological desert in the region. The effects are already being felt by local fishermen who claim that over the past couple of decades fish sticks have been declining. Overfishing could explain part of the decline, but according to Roxy Mathew Koll, a scientist at the Centre for Climate Change Research at the Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology in Pune, "Rapid warming in the Indian Ocean is playing an important role in reducing phytoplankton up to 20 percent.” Phytoplankton – microscopic plants - are the base of the ocean food chain. A decrease in phytoplankton could “cascade through the food chain, potentially turning this biologically productive region into an ecological desert,” Koll said. Such a change would curb food security not only in Indian Ocean rim countries but also global fish markets that buy from the region, he said. Global warming induced sea level rise will also severely affect Sri Lanka’s coastal economy including tourism, land resources, small industry and agriculture such as rice and coconut production. Countries and communities around the Indian Ocean will need comprehensive policies to mitigate and adapt to the affects of global warming and climate change, but often don’t have the means to do so. Koggala, Sri Lanka.

An aerial view over Seminoles Spring Mobile home park in Malibu California, where a 110 homes where lost in the Woolsey fire. The size and the aggressive nature of the Woolsey fire is directly connected to climate change. Thousands of people in California have lost everything, their homes and belongings, and are feeling a huge financial burden,  trauma and loss. The president of America who denies climate change is threatening via Twitter  to withdraw FEMA funding to these fire victims because he blames poor forest management on the state of California.

Most people rely on FEMA  for help to get back on their feet.

Photo by James Whitlow Delano @jameswhitlowdelano for @everydayclimatechange: "Ju-Hyo" (Ice Trees) trees encased in rime ice, high in the Hakkoda Mountains, Aomori Prefecture, Japan.  The area has been buried every winter in up to 5 meters (16.4 ft.) or more of snow.  The Japanese also lovingly call the trees “snow monsters”. The Yomiuri Shimbun Newspaper reported this week that Japan’s ju-hyo are threatened by bark beetles that are threatening alpine forests at the tree line throughout Japan, and in North America as well.  Ju-hyo are created when supercooled water droplets from clouds forming over the Sea of Japan accumulate and freeze on Aomori-todomatsu (Marie’s fir/abies mariesii) trees.  In the past, enough bark beetles’ eggs were killed by extremely cold winter temperatures.  Now, with climate change, more survive eggs survive the winter and infest the forests, killing the trees.  In the case in Japan, the warmer winter is allowing pest, for which the trees have little defense, to move up the mountain and weaken the trees, making them even more susceptible to the bark beetles.

Image by @sean_gallagher_photo A mother leads her child through the shallows of a beach in northern Jakarta, Indonesia. The city has been identified as one of the world's most vulnerable cities to climate change, especially related to rising sea levels. According to the New York Times in 2017, "Jakarta is sinking faster than any other big city on the planet, faster, even, than climate change is causing the sea to rise — so surreally fast that rivers sometimes flow upstream, ordinary rains regularly swamp neighborhoods and buildings slowly disappear underground, swallowed by the earth. The main cause: Jakartans are digging illegal wells, drip by drip draining the underground aquifers on which the city rests — like deflating a giant cushion underneath it. About 40 percent of Jakarta now lies below sea level." --- #everydayclimatechange #everydayeverywhere #asia #indonesia #java #jakarta #climatechange

Our forest guide shows us how he works and lives in the Tapajós National Forest with his community, the Munduruku Tribe. The community are guardians of the forest and serve to protect the lungs of the world from the advance of agribusiness, extractive industries, roads and dams. The world’s rainforests are key to combating deadly climate change by capturing carbon from the atmosphere and keeping it locked away. Concerned scientists agree, that halting deforestation is just as urgent as reducing carbon emissions
On 1 January, Jair Bolsonaro was sworn in as Brazil’s 38th president. He has expressed open disdain for the indigenous peoples of Brazil declaring: "It’s a shame that the Brazilian cavalry wasn’t as efficient as the Americans, who exterminated the Indians". It is no exaggeration to say that some of the world’s most unique and diverse tribes are facing annihilation. 📷 @johnnovis
