Climate Change

With snow on the ground in all 50 states and Russian temperatures of -84F ( -64.4°C) NOAA announce 2017 was 3rd warmest year on record
 This week was the first time the US had snow on the ground in all 50 states at the same time since Feb 2010
Crippling winds and record-breaking low temperatures were recorded in New Orleans and other cities in the US deep south this week.
The blast of cold air shattered records early Wednesday in Louisiana and Mississippi.
It's the second time already in 2018 freeze warnings for deep south and the Gulf Coast have been recorded.


"Day Zero" April 29, 2018 is the day Cape Town population 3.75 million becomes the first major city in the world to run out of drinking water!
At the current rate of consumption, officials warn April 29, 2018, will become Day Zero, the day the city’s taps will be turned off, becoming the first major city in the world to run out of water.
On January the 1st 2018 residents of South Africa's bustling city of Cape Town, home of nearly 4 million people celebrated the start of a new year with stringent new water regulations.




Weather wars! We are all doomed as establishment claim's record warming and anti-establishment warns of a mini-ice-age
It's the kind of temperatures human beings shouldn't have to endure!
Most of the US will be plunged into Arctic conditions on New Year's Eve with some parts plummeting to minus 36.6 deg C (minus 34 deg F) with meteorologists warning of frostbite to exposed skin.
With parts of the US colder than Mars and the North Pole and record snowfall in Pennsylvania at the moment, it's hard to imagine NOAA scientists recently claimed November was the 395th consecutive month with temperatures above the 20th-century average and 2017, 2016 and 2015 the three warmest years ever.





November was the 395th consecutive month with temperatures above the 20th-century average and 2017 set to be the third warmest ever: NOAA
It has been an incredible year for major wildfires and hurricanes both blamed on climate change, in my part of the world, Holland, it has been a warm year but...It started raining in August and it hasn't stopped, well that's an exaggeration but it has been unusually wet for the last 5 months.





As California tackles, one of it's biggest wildfires in history reports claim nearly 1 billion (963 million) dead trees in California and Colorada alone
The U.S. Forest Service announced Monday that an additional 27 million trees, mostly conifers, died throughout California since November 2016, see here, bringing the total number of trees that have died due to drought and bark beetles to a historic 129 million on 8.9 million acres.
The dead trees continue to pose a hazard to people and critical infrastructure, mostly centred in the central and southern Sierra Nevada region of the state.
