A paper published last Monday, which authors belong to the Institute of Integrative Biology of the Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule Zürich; (École polytechnique fédérale) ETH-Zürich, published in the peer reviewed PLOS.

Understanding climate change from a global analysis of city analogues

According to the paper, the present climate of 520 cities with more than one million inhabitants will become by 2050 similar to the current climate of different cities. Some examples:

London ---> Barcelona
Guadalajara ---> Lahore (Pakistan)
Los Angeles ---> Hargeisa (Somalia)
Buenos Aires/Montevideo ---> Sidney
New York ---> Virginia Beach (Virginia, USA)
Madrid ---> Marrakesh

It's to be taken with a pinch of salt, but it's interesting to think that if I lived and dwell in the same city by 2050 (the odds are against me) I would've moved climatically from a cold year in Melbourne to an average year in Sidney.

Sad.

Bolsinaro's elevation to President of Brazil really isn't helping: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-latin-america-49052360

I could be mistake but my recollection is that the Amazon gone at 2 Deg C warming. If so, deforestation may not matter much. The again, without detestation maybe > 2 Deg C wouldn’t be inevitable.

This is what we're up against: as Amazon logging is up 88% on June last year, Bolsonaro comes up with the genius plan that we can combat warming by crapping only every second day.
