NASA global mean June temperature is out! Guess what - it's been the hottest June on record. Definitely felt like that in Germany... #climatecrisis #FridaysForFuture

Singapore too. Plus unseasonably torrential bouts of rain. Intense heat + rain is probably helping to drive a persistent dengue outbreak. The Aedes mosquitoes love it, and the virus too. All parts of the cycle are shortened + mozzies more aggressive.

Restaurants and bars are replacing their plastic straws with reusable metal variants. But there's a hitch: customers keep taking the metal straws home with them https://bloom.bg/2k2uq8V

THIS - Billions of air pollution nanoparticles found in hearts of city dwellers New research shows associated damage to critical pumping muscles, even in children as young as three Exclusive, by me https://www.theguardian.com/society/2019/jul/12/billions-of-air-pollution-particles-found-in-hearts-of-city-dwellers?CMP=share_btn_tw …

As a friend said, “where do people think they go (when we breathe them in)??” They cross the respiratory-blood barrier and the blood brain barrier. They’re circulating through our systems. ☹️

Wow. This new world is on its way. I wonder what it will all look like, on balance (with effects of emissions + unknowns + tipping pts + all efforts), in 30 years’ time (that’s the 2050 mark), 80 years’ time. Will we win? And who will win?

About #ClimateCrisis anxiety and depression: "It's super painful to be a human being right now at this point in history. We need to translate our concern—our despair, our anger our feelings—into action." https://www.vice.com/amp/en_ca/article/j5w374/climate-despair-is-making-people-give-up-on-life?__twitter_impression=true …

Okay, I know I’ve seen something like this in Black Mirror, but it makes sense. All that work at the gym might as well not be wasted. Could it be combined with batteries, that can also store energy from solar and other renewable sources?

Nine deer have died after swallowing plastic bags in Japan's Nara Park, a wildlife group said , warning that a surge in tourism may be to blame http://u.afp.com/JeCE 

☹️😡 Ugh.

Quoted @LittleNinjaUK

"This more active lifestyle means less obesity, #airpollution and road danger and greater sociability as people meet their neighbours on their way to work." Electric travel is the answer but not cars. #FreeElectricBuses #ebikes #escooters & #cargobikes https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-48875361 …

I think EVs are part of the solution, especially against #airpollution, but I certainly prefer cities that prioritise good, safe, reliable public transport and cycling and pedestrian infrastructure.

Wow. This would take care of at least two concerns simultaneously, if it were to become commercially viable.

Quoted @antonioguterres

The heatwaves reaching Europe are proof that climate change is striking everywhere and it is a serious public health threat. #ClimateAction cannot wait.

Indeed Secretary-General @antonioguterres, the climate crisis is a health crisis. Excessive heat can cause heatstroke, exhaustion, fainting and other health consequences. To protect people’s health we need immediate #ClimateAction.
