@ai6yr or "when in doubt, remain seated, and keep the belt buckled unless you really need to move". Flying over France from late Spring to lqte Summer is awful because of turbulence, one of the reasons (other than a serious lack of money/time) I haven't gone to the Le Mans 24h race.

So while you & I might think its necessary to speed up the Green Transition & enhance/accelerate measures to reduce emissions, Shell's shareholders disagree.

The firm has just sought & obtained agreement from investors to slow down its measures to mitigate its environmental impact & reduce progress towards its own (already weak) climate targets.

More reason(s) the fossil fuels sector cannot really be central to climate response(s).

We don't have the time to slow down!

The post WW2 Era wasn't a golden age for everyone.

Women made 40% less than men.

PoC made 60% less than whites.

Housing was redlined & government programs excluded huge swathes of the population.

Absolutely, despite the fact that Women + POC powered war time manufacturing.

The idea that that experience fostered women's and civil rights a generation on is not lost on me.

Really irritated with this phrase:

"Scientists have not yet established a direct climate change link with this particular storm."

20 years ago, scientists predicted bigger, wetter, more extreme storms. Now we're getting bigger, wetter, more extreme storms. The only thing that benefits from this pusillanimous "journalism" is fossil fuel companies. And this is from "Inside Climate News"! It's not like it's CNN or something.

First and foremost, we had more than 20 wonderful participants at , ranging from Bachelor- to - level all modelling systems. Everyone had the chance to present their projects and methods and we had vivid question+discussion rounds afterwards. Although seems like a niche group already, we heard about a bandwidth of methods including mechanistic (-evo)-models, , and vegeation models, network models, , and much more.

MSM appears to be on the side of the misogynists, racists, deniers...

AP, CBS News, & CNN failed to post on FB &/or TikTok re TFG's reported promise to reverse Biden's actions on CC as he asked oil execs to raise $1B for his campaign. Days later -same MSM outlets posted re VP Harris’ use of an expletive. TFG met with some of the US' top oil execs & proposed a “deal” -they'd raise $1B for his campaign & he'd -in turn, reverse & stop Biden’s ENVIR rules-.

“The UK and Ireland face a wetter, damper and mouldier future due to Until the world reduces emissions to net zero, the climate will continue to warm, and rainfall in the UK and Ireland will continue to get heavier.”

https://www.theguardian.com/world/article/2024/may/22/never-ending-uk-rain-10-times-more-likely-climate-crisis-study

This is the message we need to get out to combat the populist nonsense like "well if climate change is real at least we'll have nice hot summers"

Monkeys ‘falling out of trees like apples’ in Mexico amid brutal heatwave

https://www.theguardian.com/world/article/2024/may/21/monkeys-mexico-heatwave

>“They were falling out of the trees like apples,” Pozo said. “They were in a state of severe dehydration, and they died within a matter of minutes.” Already weakened, Pozo says the falls from dozens of yards (meters) up inflict additional damage that often finishes the monkeys off.

>By 9 May at least nine cities in Mexico had set temperature records,
