Report shows insufficient #ClimateAction plans

2021 is a make or break year to confront the global #ClimateEmergency. The #science is clear, to limit global temperature rise to 1.5C, we must cut global #emissions by 45% by 2030 from 2010 levels. Today’s interim report from the #UNFCCC is a red alert for our planet.

Ein Klima-Stadtplanungs-Tool für die Öffentlichkeit

Das #EU-Projekt #CLARITY (Integrated Climate Adaptation Service Tools for Improving Resilience Measure Efficiency) hat es sich zum Ziel gesetzt Informationen über den #Klimawandel und dessen Folgen in der Stadt leicht zugänglich und verständlich einer breiten Öffentlichkeit zur Verfügung zu stellen und Anpassungsmaßnahmen aufzuzeigen, um bei Planungen zu unterstützen.


Drier European summers projected under #ClimateChange

...Furthermore, human induced #climate change is expected to increase the frequency of extremely dry conditions across all of #Europe.
“We are expecting to see significant changes in European summers as a result of human-induced climate change. Summers may become a lot drier and this shift is expected to become more prominent as we move through the century.”

Machine learning made easy with Python - Solve real-world machine learning problems with Naïve Bayes classifiers

Naïve Bayes is a classification technique that serves as the basis for implementing several classifier modeling algorithms. Naïve Bayes-based classifiers are considered some of the simplest, fastest, and easiest-to-use machine learning techniques, yet are still effective for real-world applications.
Naïve Bayes is based on Bayes' theorem, formulated by 18th-century statistician Thomas Bayes. This theorem assesses the probability that an event will occur based on conditions related to the event. For example, an individual with Parkinson's disease typically has voice variations; hence such symptoms are considered related to the prediction of a Parkinson's diagnosis. The original Bayes' theorem provides a method to determine the probability of a target event, and the Naïve variant extends and simplifies this method.

Climatology synthesizes its understanding of climate change every 5 to 7 years in a new #IPCC report. A new one is about to be published.

This is a model I wish more sciences would adopt. I would be really curious how the consensus of economists compares to TV economists.

The life sciences have a established very structured systematic peer reviews of well delimited questions: #Cochrane Reviews

This editorial calls on climate science to also make such #SystemicReviews.

Klima-Risiko-Index: Wetterextreme treffen die Ärmsten

#Dürren, #Stürme, #Überflutungen: Die Folgen des #Klimawandel's treffen die Menschen in den ärmsten Ländern am stärksten. Das geht aus dem #KlimaRisikoIndex hervor, den die Denkfabrik Germanwatch heute veröffentlicht hat - am gleichen Tag, an dem sich Staats- und Regierungschefs beim #KlimaAnpassungsGipfel mit diesem Thema beschäftigen.


Report by CARE Denmark & Netherlands: Climate Adaptation Finance: Fact or Fiction?

Some report quotes:

• "large amounts of climate finance [are] for projects that have nothing to do with" .

• "donors routinely exaggerate the adaptation finance component".

"finance only represents about 58% of what donors reported".

-> The table on p.18 shows that donors are different and over-reporting is not evenly distributed.

Step up #ClimateChange adaptation, says #UN report

We need a global commitment to put half of all global climate finance towards adaptation in the next year,” said Inger Andersen, Executive Director of #UNEP. “This will allow a huge step up in #adaptation – in everything from early warning systems to resilient water resources to nature-based solutions.”

20 million people in #Mumbai at risk due to #cyclones, #SeaLevelRise

The study found that the decadal increase in cyclone events had increased six times from two cyclones in 1970-1979 to 12 during 2010-19 that had impact along the Maharashtra coast.
It further warned that coastal cities with high population density and delicate infrastructure were left with no more than 10 years to act against the impacts of #ClimateChange.

Feuer vernichtet immer mehr feuchte Uferwälder

So genannte #Galeriewälder (#Wälder an Ufern von Gewässern) sind in besonderen Maß von #Buschbrände'n bedroht.
Demnach waren 2003 noch rund 90 Prozent der Uferwälder vom Kronendach der Bäume bedeckt. Im Jahr 2017 war die Bedeckung dagegen auf stellenweise 20 Prozent gesunken. Im Schnitt war jeder zweite erwachsene Baum und 88 Prozent der Baumschösslinge abgestorben.
