Global Tipping Points
"The Global Tipping Points Report was launched at COP28 on 6 December 2023. The report is an authoritative assessment of the risks and opportunities of both negative and positive tipping points in the Earth system and society."
Frightening news on PM2.5 pollution https://grist.org/health/climate-change-is-undoing-decades-of-progress-on-air-quality/
Yes #climate change kills, by some estimates as many as 4 million people so far. Not in some major Day After Tomorrow catastrophe, but just via regular ol' air pollution.
"The water cycle that shuttles Earth’s most vital resource around in an unending, life-giving loop is in trouble. Climate change has disrupted that cycle’s delicate balance, upsetting how water circulates between the ground, oceans and atmosphere.
The events of 2023 show how significant these disruptions have become. From extreme precipitation and flooding to drought and contaminated water supplies, almost every part of the U.S. faced some consequence of climate change and the shifting availability of water.
The water cycle controls every aspect of Earth’s climate system, which means that as the climate changes, so too does nearly every step of water’s movement on the planet. In some places, the availability of #water is becoming increasingly scarce, while in others, #climate change is intensifying rainfall, #floods & other extreme weather events.
As the planet continues to warm, this cycle is expected to be increasingly stretched, warped & broken."

Why Planting Forests alone is no Panacea for the Climate Crisis
“The #climatecrisis is the result of greed — of the biggest industrial corporations amassing wealth through destructive ways that continue to hurt the planet and the people living in it. For centuries, drilling fossil fuels have been framed as essential to economic growth, wealth abundance, and prosperity — but this prosperity is only felt by the richest 1%. For the rest of us, everyday is a test for survival.” #climate
Revealed: the 1,200 big #methane leaks from waste dumps trashing the planet
The huge leaks of the potent greenhouse gas will doom #climate targets, experts say, but stemming them would rapidly reduce #globalheating https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2024/feb/12/revealed-the-1200-big-methane-leaks-from-waste-dumps-trashing-the-planet #climatechange #climatecrisis
Researchers at the #Krakow #University of #Technology adapted an internal #combustion #engine to run on #hydrogen
#Poland is really a powerhouse on the subject of hydrogen 😉 Not everyone understands that not only #fuelcells make sense, but also conventional engines that actually burn hydrogen can be a solution to many #climate problems. In addition, hydrogen is #geopolitically independent, because it can be produced (almost) everywhere.
