Investors are increasingly investing in clean energy & putting pressure on companies "to do more to ready themselves for a warmer world that is drastically reducing emissions" - @AmyAHarder https://t.co/5ZC3bnwnsu @ActOnClimate100 https://t.co/SOSuRv3rTr #TheInvestorAgendaOpen
Efforts to curb #airpollution in China, a country already facing dire health impacts from high levels of soot and smog, will likely become increasingly difficult as the planet warms, a new study shows. #climatechange https://t.co/p0t1eX4Eq3Open
A bit like 19th Century London's smog, scientists found that more frequent periods of stagnant air will worsen China's haze and health problems. So will heat waves.
Iraq is offering the rest of the world a glimpse of a future where dangerous high heat is harder and harder to escape. https://t.co/wsfafkVlZb https://t.co/BbSWCFrDAFOpen
In the future, only the rich will be able to escape the unbearable heat from climate change. In Iraq, it’s already happening
Baghdad offers a troubling glimpse into a future where only the wealthy are equipped to escape the effects of climate change, Richard Hall writes
Climate change is the greatest crisis our world faces. So when are we going to make it our next “moonshot” to find a solution? https://t.co/Zygh31RSV8Open
We must create a fully empowered national climate change agency, devoted exclusively to climate change with a mandate to prepare a moonshot.
Way back, we (wrongly) thought that we could reduce carbon emissions by burning wood from forests instead of coal. But recent studies have shown that this will have disastrous effects on the #ClimateCrisis. Learn more from @billmckibben: https://t.co/R9vhe1e2ld via @newyorker. https://t.co/4yw6SdKtf2Open
Countries and public utilities around the world are trying to reduce carbon emissions by burning wood pellets for fuel instead of coal, but recent studies have shown that the practice will ...
RT @Data2X: #Climatechange can affect women and men differently. But to ensure gender-inclusive policy responses to the climate crisis, we need better #genderdata. Read @Data2X's new blog on mainstreaming gender & data in the climate conversation: https://t.co/XXeEucurb8Open
Climate change—and the environment more broadly—isn’t one of Data2X’s core focus areas, but we recognize that it is a critical driver for development progress.
World’s land & water resources are being exploited at “unprecedented rates,” @UN #IPCC #SRCCL #SR15 warns, which combined with #climatechange is putting dire pressure on the ability of humanity to feed itself. But there is still time to act. https://t.co/HXyqAtP0Vu via @nytimes https://t.co/pUitAWoXWxOpen
The world's land is being exploited at an “unprecedented” rate, a United Nations report on climate change warns, putting pressure on food production and amplifying the risk of mass ...

RT @insideclimate: Climate change-related disasters are becoming more tangible and more frequent, said Carmen Nuzzo of the United Nations-supported @PRI_News. "They can no longer be ignored." https://t.co/177v2mg2u5Open
The risk of a ratings downgrade can pressure cities and companies to take steps to mitigate climate risks, such as from sea level rise.

Two-thirds of the largest cities sit on the coast, and a billion people now live no more than ten metres above sea level https://t.co/kzxmrXpVWROpen
The world is not ready for the sea levels it will face
The protest was timed to coincide with a march by indigenous women in Brasilia, highlighting damage to the Amazon rainforest, Extinction Rebellion group said
Happy International #YouthDay! Young #researchers are invested in finding solutions to #climate related #agriculture & #foodsystem issues. Learn how CCAFS & @GRA_GHG support the next generation of scientists: https://t.co/nzGimk7ccM #cliffgrads https://t.co/1fwchsx8E9Open
In order to adapt to a changing climate, the global agriculture sector must tap into the potential of young people.
The reason Antarctica is melting: shifting winds, driven by global warming https://t.co/SbEPYbAyEh (By @aisneed) https://t.co/K5sMQNurGZOpen
A new study helps solve the puzzle of why the continent’s western glaciers are melting so fast
Global warming is driving a shift in regional winds around the edges of Antarctica, and that's speeding up the meltdown of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, new research shows. https://t.co/6rXmWbfZYZOpen
A new study connects the dots between climate change and faster melting of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, which has consequences for sea level rise.
