Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Energy (and Other) Events Monthly - September 2023

by gmoke Wed Aug 30th, 2023 at 05:57:51 PM EST

These kinds of events below are happening all over the world every day and most of them, now, are webcast and archived, sometimes even with accurate transcripts. Would be good to have a place that helped people access them.

This is a more global version of the local listings I did for about a decade (what I did and why I did it at http://hubeventsnotes.blogspot.com/2013/11/what-i-do-and-why-i-do-it.html) until September 2020 and earlier for a few years in the 1990s (https:/theworld.com~gmoke/AList.index.html).  

A more comprehensive global listing service could be developed if there were enough people interested in doing it, if it hasn't already been done.  

If anyone knows of such a global listing of open energy, climate, and other events is available, please put me in contact.

Thanks for reading,

Solar IS Civil Defense,
George Mokray

Northern hemisphere breaks record for hottest ever summer | The Guardian |

This article is more than 2 years old

  • Past three months were 1.17C above 20th-century average
  • 2020 on track to be one of five warmest years, Noaa finds
  • June, July and August were 1.17C (2.11F) above the 20th-century average, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (Noaa).

    The new record surpassed the summers of 2016 and 2019. Last month was also the second-hottest August ever recorded for the globe. The numbers put 2020 on track to be one of the five warmest years, according to Noaa.

    United Nations officials have warned that many countries are not prepared to advance climate ambitions, while the US faces a presidential election that will decide whether it will contribute to such global efforts or hinder them.

    With aggressive federal action, the US could cut its climate pollution almost in half by 2030 compared with 2005, according to the latest report from America's Pledge, a group of private- and public-sector leaders. [Mike Bloomberg and Jerry Brown founded in 2017]

    'Smashed': summer of 2023 the hottest ever recorded | The Guardian |

    The summer of 2023 was the hottest ever recorded, as the climate crisis and emerging El Niño pushed up temperatures and drove extreme weather across the world.

    In June, July and August - the northern hemisphere summer - the global average temperature reached 16.77C, which was 0.66C above the 1991 to 2020 average. The new high is 0.29C above the previous record set in 2019, a big jump in climate terms.

    The data, from the EU's Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S), showed that August was about 1.5C warmer than the preindustrial average for 1850 to 1900, although the goal of the world's nations to keep global heating below 1.5C will be considered broken only when this temperature is sustained over months and years.

    Heatwaves, fires and floods have destroyed lives and livelihoods across the globe, from North and South America, to Europe, India, Japan and China.

    "Our planet has just endured a season of simmering - the hottest summer on record. Climate breakdown has begun," said the UN secretary general, António Guterres.
