Extreme Temperature Diary- Thursday September 22nd, 2022/Main Topic: Climate Week NYC

The main purpose of this ongoing blog will be to track planetary extreme, or record temperatures related to climate change. Any reports I see of ETs will be listed below the main topic of the day. I’ll refer to extreme or record temperatures as ETs (not extraterrestrials).😉

Main Topic: Climate Week NYC

Dear Diary. This week there is yet another big climate conference occurring, this time in New York City. I applause these because they focus attention on the overall problem of the climate crisis, offer some new very inventive solutions, and bring up climate justice for those most harmed by caustic fossil fuels and associated effects, such as sea level rise.

Here are a few details as presented by the Weather Channel’s climate show, Pattrn:

Here is a link to Climate Week New York City’s webpage, with a description of all of the events occurring there this week. Please explore the site to see how extensive this conference and program is for New York as well as the United States. I’m hoping that this overall effort bears real fruit and will lower the temperature of the planet at least a smidgeon for all of our sakes:

This year, we’re back in person, live from New York and we’re putting climate in context on today’s world. We’ll explore global security, climate, and connected challenges. We ask what’s stopping us from getting it done. And how we rebuild a more equitable economy.
