The Rockefeller Foundation today will announce a $1 billion, five-year commitment to climate-change programs, Axios' Andrew Freedman reports.

  • Why it matters: The organization, founded with a fortune built by fossil fuel, is one of the biggest players in behind-the-scenes work to prevent climate change from worsening.

Raj Shah — the foundation's president, and former head of USAID during the Obama administration — told Axios in an interview that climate-related giving will go from about 25% of its portfolio during the past five years, to more than 75% of giving during the next five years.

YOU LOVE TO SEE IT: The Kids Are Alright

Good things are happening! The country’s largest private university just divested from fossil fuels — and we scored a behind-the-scenes account of the victory from one of the organizers responsible. And that’s not all: California’s legislature passed historic climate legislation and defended Medicare, plus the taxman is coming for the country’s negligent millionaires.

As climate change and high costs plague Alaska’s fisheries, fewer young people take up the trade

KODIAK, Alaska (AP) — Lane Bolich first came to work in Alaska for the freedom and excitement that comes with being a fisher.

Inside scientists’ mission to save America’s wine industry from climate change

ALPINE, Ore. (AP) — The U.S. West Coast produces over 90% of America’s wine, but the region is also prone to wildfires — a combustible combination that spelled disaster for the industry in 2020 and one that scientists are scrambling to neutralize.

Should We Care About Climate Change?

An Adventist Today reader sent in a summary of a sermon preached recently by an Adventist pastor. The pastor had asserted that climate change is a punishment by God for human sin, and that hope for Adventists is not in preventing the planet from increasing two degrees in temperature, but in Jesus’ taking us away from this planet. Christians should not be concerned, the pastor admonished, about present or future harm and suffering caused to human or nonhuman life on the planet that are a result of climate change. Instead, we should be glad because climate change is a sign that Jesus is coming soon.

Larry Fink’s Big Climate Lie

In early December, Larry Fink, CEO of BlackRock, the world’s largest investment company, announced BlackRock was going all in on crypto currencies, helping revitalize interest in the dwindling, fossil fuel-heavy industry. This otherwise routine business story is noteworthy for one important reason: Three years ago, Fink was heralded by many in business media for ostensibly helping to usher in a new, green, and sustainable brand of capitalism.

White hot Christmas
mail?url=https%3A%2F%2Fimages.axios.com%
NWS forecast temperature departures from average for overnight lows on Christmas Eve. Map: Weatherbell.com

Forget the chance of a white Christmas in the Midwest and much of the East this year. Instead, record warmth is on tap, Axios extreme weather expert Andrew Freedman writes.

  • Why it matters: The warm weather will be extremely noticeable to residents in the far northern reaches of the U.S.

One of the most reliable regions for a white Christmas is northern Minnesota and Wisconsin. But this year, even that part of the U.S. will likely feature bare ground.

  • Temperatures from Dallas to Minneapolis — and north into Canada — are likely to be 20 to 35 degrees above average during Christmas week.
  • Some temperature records could be smashed by 5 to 10 degrees or more, an unusual margin at any time of year.

🔎 Zoom in: Residents of many Midwestern cities will likely wake up to temperatures in the low 40s on Christmas morning, according to current forecasts.

  • For many, rain could be falling as well.

A significant winter storm is set to make travel in the Plains hazardous today. But much of the U.S. can expect unusually mild temperatures and no chance of a white Christmas, Axios' Rebecca Falconer writes.

  • "Temperature-wise, it will not be feeling a lot like Christmas from the Upper Mississippi Valley ... to the Great Lakes and East Coast," the National Weather Service says.

Dense fog hit holiday travel in Illinois, forcing airlines to cancel hundreds of Christmas Eve flights at Chicago Midway.

  • Chicago can expect a wet Christmas, as can Minneapolis, Kansas City and St. Louis.

Interactive map shows Florida areas under water in 2100 due to climate change

Several parts of Florida could be underwater by the year 2100 if climate change leads to a temperature increase of 4.9°, according to this frightening map produced by Climate Central. Coastal areas are most prone to ending up underwater if the sea levels, accelerated by climate change, continue to rise.

🌡️ Midwest "lost winter"
mail?url=https%3A%2F%2Fdatawrapper.dwcdn
Data: NOAA; Graphic: Rahul Mukherjee/Axios

Great Lakes ice cover is at a record low for mid-February, with parts of the Great Lakes states headed toward their warmest winters on record, Axios' Andrew Freedman writes.

  • Why it matters: The below-average snow and ice, and unusually mild conditions, are likely tied to climate change and an El Niño climate pattern.

🖼️ The big picture: The absence of ice this winter coincides with record-warm temperatures and a "lost winter" in the Midwest.

  • Lakes Erie and Ontario have ice that's tied with historic lows. Lakes Superior, Michigan and Huron (typically some of the coldest) are at record-low levels of ice, according to NOAA,

😤 Texas' air quality predicted to backslide
 
mail?url=https%3A%2F%2Fdatawrapper.dwcdn
Data: First Street Foundation; Note: Maximum count of days with unhealthy air quality from anywhere within each county; Map: Kavya Beheraj/Axios

After decades of progress in the U.S. toward cleaner air, climate change-related events are expected to set back gains in parts of Texas through 2054.

The big picture: Nearly 70 of Texas' 254 counties are expected, by 2054, to see an increase in days with an average air quality index of 100 or higher under current climate conditions.

Why it matters: Climate change and the increased likelihood of wildfires as far away as Canada stand to reverse improvements the U.S. has made so far in air quality, per new research from the nonprofit First Street Foundation.

Details: Bad air quality days are when pollution is above 100 on the air quality index.

  • North Texas is estimated this year to have the highest number of days with unhealthy air quality compared to other parts of the state.
  • The number of days per year with harmful air quality in the North Texas counties are expected to increase over the next 30 years, per an analysis by Axios' Andrew Freedman.

By the numbers: Based on current climate conditions, Dallas County will see an estimated four days with an air quality index (AQI) of 100 or higher in 2024, compared to five in 2054.

  • Collin and Denton counties are estimated to have six days in 2054, two more than in 2024.

Flashback: Dallas-Fort Worth's overall air quality was worse last summer than in previous years, in part because of Canadian wildfires.

Zoom out: The U.S. population's exposure to "dangerous" days on the air quality index is likely to grow to 11.2 million, a roughly 13% increase, by 2054.

  • States in the West are projected to see some of the worst air quality impacts.

Reality check: Climate action requires global emissions cuts. Even sharp declines in greenhouse gas emissions may not alter trend lines for the next few decades.

Spring showers could delay summer misery
 
Side-by-side comparisons of drought, showing improvements this year compared to last year.
 

A tale of two years. Maps: U.S. Drought Monitor

 

The recent rainfall in North Texas has helped the region steer clear of drought conditions so far this spring, new data from the U.S. Drought Monitor shows.

Why it matters: Firefighters and weather forecasters keep a close eye on rain totals and drought risks heading into the summer, when the brutal heat typically worsens conditions.

State of play: Around this time last year, almost 67% of Texas was in drought.

  • As of the latest data released yesterday, a quarter of the state is experiencing drought conditions.

Threat level: Droughts affect crop production, cattle health and wildfire risks. And they're costly.

The big picture: Central and West Texas are the state's current drought hotspots, per the U.S. Drought Monitor.

  • The drought map bodes well for North Texas, potentially giving the region some reprieve heading into the hotter months.

By the numbers: DFW Airport's month-to-date rainfall as of Wednesday was 5.7 inches, significantly higher than the normal month-to-date rainfall of 2.9 inches, per the National Weather Service.

  • The airport has seen 10.8 inches of rain this year, more than 2 inches ahead of average.
  • The El Niño year likely accounts for the difference, NWS meteorologist Steve Fano tells Axios.

What's next: Normal rainfall is forecast for April, May and June, per the weather service.

The bottom line: "Heading into the summer, we'll pretty much take all the rain we can get," Fano says.

  • "The rainier you are, the greener the vegetation is. As you head into the hotter parts of the year, that helps keep the temperatures from getting exceptionally hot."
