Currently in Boston — August 29th, 2022

Beautiful weather to close out August but it remains unusually dry

The work week will start on a sunny note and you'll notice the humidity increase. Temperatures will be well into the 80s on Monday a fine day to head to the beach. Nice weather continues Tuesday it's also very warm again. A cold front may bring a small shower Tuesday night or early Wednesday and that's our only chance of rain for the next 10 to 14 days.

What you need to know, currently.

Climate change will not affect everyone equally — both domestically and internationally. Currently fellow Anna Abraham has a story up on how developing nations and small island states are working to bring Loss and Damage finance to the forefront of the conversation.

"In response to climate disasters, vulnerable communities rely on adaptation measures (eg. building flood defenses such as embankments) to survive; but these efforts can only go so far. Based on existing emission trends, climate change has dramatically increased the number of extreme weather events, making many disasters completely unavoidable. The social and fiscal impacts of these unavoidable events are referred to as 'loss and damage.'"

It is well established that countries in the Global South are disproportionately affected by climate change. The Global North is historically responsible for an excess of 92 percent of emissions. Countries in the South, including India and China, are still well within the boundary of their fair share of global emissions."
