Climate Today: Anxiety, Give Us Money, California Recall

Do you have climate anxiety?

If you’re anxious about climate change, here are some ways to feel more empowered

Last week’s report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) sounded the alarm once again on climate change, with the authors calling it a “code red for humanity.”

Over the summer months, many of us have been glued to TV and social media, watching images of B.C. forests burning, turning the sky — thick with smoke — an eerie orange-red. This has been accompanied by heat waves, floods, droughts and other fires around the world flashing across our screens. (snip)

First, there’s a measure of self-care. Cox says it’s important to acknowledge dark feelings and manage them, by taking walks in nature, getting good sleep and eating well. And it’s important to also take in moments of delight to help combat feelings of despair.

And that’s pretty much it. I recommend that they give up all trappings of the modern world.

Developing nations push to define ‘unacceptably vague’ adaptation goal

As scientists warn of worsening climate impacts to come, there is renewed impetus to define what global ambition on adaptation should look like.

The latest report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change underscored that weather extremes will intensify and sea levels rise this century in all emissions scenarios.

Yet six years after the Paris Agreement established a global goal to help people cope with these threats, what that means in practice remains “unacceptably vague”, according to vulnerable countries. They want the next UN climate summit, Cop26, in November, to focus political attention on the issue.

South Africa is proposing a quantitative target: to increase the climate resilience of the global population 50% by 2030 and at least 90% by 2050.

Yeah, this is really all about redistributing money from the 1st World to other countries. South Africa has basically become a 3rd world shithole.

Climate change gets leading role in Gavin Newsom recall election in California

Mail-in ballots began arriving this week for the Sept. 14 recall election of California Gov. Gavin Newsom, a contest that Democrats and environmentalists are increasingly framing in terms of its impact on the state’s efforts to fight climate change.

While a group called the California Patriot Coalition began circulating petitions to recall Newsom in early 2020 in protest of his policies on taxes, the state’s ongoing drought, homelessness and immigration, the accumulation of the more than 1.5 million signatures necessary to trigger a new election was aided by frustrations over COVID-19 restrictions.

But with wildfires made worse by climate change continuing to threaten much of the state, Democrats quickly began highlighting that issue, on which Newsom has taken aggressive action.

By “aggressive action”, do them mean allowing the conditions to propagate so when someone or a company makes a mistake, or it’s arson, the dead brush lights up and destroys everything? Anyhow, it would be very interesting if a Republican wins, most likely Larry Elder, and rolls back every initiative he can. And just stops enforcing others, because you know there’s zero chance of getting the majority Democrat controlled general assembly to pass laws.

    The best thing the dimwits could do to stop ‘climate change’ is quit setting CA on fire.

    Got my ballot and had it in the drop box the same day. I will be having a party if that lying greasy P.O.S. is recalled. The list of names for those running to replace him was quite long. To borrow a phrase from the late Rush, It reminded me of the bar scene in Star Wars.
