In the heirachy of polluted water, it goes: water, dirty water, water with phosphate in it, stinky and dirty water, polluted water, highly poluted water, The River Thames, The River Cam, the sewer from my house the morning after I went out for a curry.
Was it the Cam where fish were devastated by certain substances that festival goers had been p..ing into the river?
And other substances that might be in it..
Sometimes the fish are so high they swim Above the water! :)
(Of course any suggestion that hormones from 'the pill' might also affect drinking water etc, etc... ;-) )

His book about a blaze so hot it vaporised concrete and turned a Canadian city to ash has just won the Baillie Gifford prize. John Vaillant explains why the world we think we live in no longer exists
Then maybe read about towns that were burnt down to ashes while trees and Tarmac did Not!

"Paradise's (California) recovery had a lot stacked against it from the beginning due to its largely elderly and low-income population. Many were Forced to Leave in Search of Affordable Housing."

Then a town where all the aluminium and glass in cars melted but Tarmac, trees, and posh buildings did Not.
Ooerr, w I l d fire enough?

Lahaina, Hawaii:
"Beneficiaries who take part in the program will have to waive their right to "bring legal action related to associated claims," Green said in a statement."
Suspicious, yet?.
Bear in mind hawaiians had won a decades long case over land rights that was to pay out in September, just After the "wildfire" in August.
Smells to high heaven?

I don't think that can be correct - although I do think 2023 will be a record - this from a source I trust at the end of October

Edited to add - it isn't correct - Bill McKibben is referencing some weird hybrid data set from Eliot Jacobson that looks nothing like any of the other surface or lower troposphere data sets, which all have a remarkable degree of agreement

Floating Offshore 52%..
Geothermal 32%..

Up 6 times higher than long term market averages. :-(

The stratoshere has warmed up even more because the sun is closer at the moment. We are just around the peak, so you should start to see the temperature going down again in the next 10 years. Within the next 40 years, there's a very high probability of a catastrophic volcanic event, which has consistently happened throughout history at this time of the cycle. The event will cause at least 12 months of darkness and destroy most of the plant life on the planet, so climate change will no longer be top of the agenda.

"Polluter pays" isn't it?
Right, 66% tax for the 1%, no "Allowances", no "Trust funds" (Cameron, that means you!), and no fake "it's made by my company, in another tax haven":)

There are unfortunately plans to relocate that line to pass through the local village instead.
.
Put one of these on your Christmas list:
