Saturday, 24 July 2021 Unliveable Series! Climate chaos continues: A week of record-breaking rainfall around the globe continued yesterday when an incredible "600 mm, 24 inches" of rain-drenched Maharashtra India in just 24 hours killing at least 110 people and more rain is forecast
A week of record-breaking rainfall around the globe continued yesterday when an incredible 600 mm, 24 inches of rain drenched Maharashtra India in just 24 hours killing at least 110 people with many more people missing.
Most of the deaths came from landslides, hundreds of villages were overwhelmed, sweeping away houses and leaving residents stranded according to the BBC.
The incredible deluge was the heaviest spell of rain in the area for decades. India is enduring its monsoon season but this amount of rain has not been witnessed by a generation.
Thursday, 22 July 2021 Frost and snow in Australia South Africa, and Brazil: After China's record-busting floods, a Typhoon and Tropical Storm are next: Dubai "seeding" the clouds desperate for rain: Extreme weather continues to wreak havoc across the planet as climate change becomes, "CLIMATE CHANGED!"
Extreme weather continues to wreak havoc across the planet with farmers, agriculture, wildlife, and humans all taking a hit on the chin from the unusually bad weather.
Unusual and unseasonal cold, record-breaking heat and droughts, wildfires, and killer floods are creating absolute havoc in the summer of 2021 as climate change becomes, "CLIMATE CHANGED!"
Unusual freezing temperatures and frost have harmed and damaged trees which will affect next year's coffee crops in many parts of Brazil. The country has suffered all year with drought and flooding and the cold snap is the final slap in the face for coffee producers.
Last week it was Europe when almost 200 people died from record-breaking rainfall after record amounts of rain burst river banks in the areas and it was the speed of the rising water which caught many people unprepared. Governments and authorities are failing to warn and prepare people beforehand, that's because these extreme events are happening too rapidly for governments to react. This week it's China when a year's rainfall fell in a couple of hours.
Zhengzhou saw 624mm of rainfall on Tuesday, with a third of that amount falling between 16:00 and 17:00 alone, which "smashed historical records". It forecasted that parts of the region would continue to see "severe or extremely severe storms" and that the heavy rain would likely only end on Thursday. Many factors contribute to flooding, but a warming atmosphere caused by climate change makes extreme rainfall more likely.
Tuesday, 20 July 2021 July 2021 will be a month to remember! Oregon is on the verge of suffering its biggest wildfire ever: Nearly 100 wildfires raging across 13 states in the US: Wildlife taking the brunt: 2 million acres burning across the Siberian Tundra!
It is early summer in the US and already Oregon is on the verge of suffering its biggest wildfire ever. The Bootleg Fire has been raging for two weeks and has become so intense it is creating its own weather, a phenomenon we have seen in California and Australia recently. So far the fire has ravaged nearly 400,000 acres and is approaching the biggest ever recorded wildfire in Oregon, which was the Long Haul Fire in 2012 which destroyed almost 560,000 acres. The fire is only 30% contained and has already destroyed an area the size of Los Angeles.
Upwards of nearly 100 wildfires are raging across 13 states in the US at this moment according to The National Interagency Fire Centre. The hot tinder-dry conditions will remain for the next two days with 3.5 million people under red flag warnings in the West for more wildfire outbreaks.
More than 100 people have been killed and hundreds more missing in Germany, Belgium, and southern Holland after record amounts of rain have burst river banks in the areas but it was the speed of the rising water which caught many people unprepared. The UK was hit by a similar deluge at the beginning of this week and the government's advisory climate change committee told ministers the nation was even worse prepared for extreme weather events than it was five years ago, that's because these extreme events are increasing too rapidly for governments to react.
While heatwaves have been crippling parts of the US and Canada and southern and eastern Europe with many suffering temperatures approaching 50 deg C, 122 deg F the UK and Western Europe have endured terrible, record-breaking downpours, and more rain is on the way.
At least 33 people have died in Germany with the death count expected to rise as many more are missing because of freak weather bringing unprecedented flooding in western Germany.
Wednesday, 14 July 2021 Unliveable! Record-breaking drought, heatwaves, wildfires, melting permafrost, and plagues promises to be a worrying summer for the United States! What is happening to our planet's weather recently is astonishing but hey, it's summer!
As June 2021 has just been announced as the hottest ever in the U.S. by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and Tropical Storm Elsa was announced as the earliest 5th named storm in the Atlantic season ever, (typically the 5th named storm of a season usually arrives at about the end of August) the nation has been hit with a more than 30 billion-dollar disaster bill for 2021 in just over six-months.
Monday, 5 July 2021 Canadian record-breaking heat! We were warned this would happen by NASA, JFK, and Eisenhower, along with scientists Harry Wexler and Milutin Milankovitch back in the early '60s but the mighty military-industrial complex, Al Gore, NASA, NOAA, have been blaming us ever since
Unliveable Hell-Hole Series!
"Our very future depended on being the ones who first seized ownership of space." “Control of space means control of the world,” Johnson declared. “From space, the masters of infinity would have the power to control the earth’s weather, to cause drought and flood, to change the tides and raise the levels of the sea, to divert the gulf stream and change temperate climates to frigid.” Vice President Johnson at Southwest Texas State University (1962).
If you were drawing up a list of possible locations for hell on Earth before this week, the small mountain village of Lytton in Canada would probably not have entered your mind. Few people outside British Columbia had heard of this community of 250 people. Those who had were more likely to think of it as bucolic. Nestled by a confluence of rivers in the forested foothills of the Lillooet and Botanie mountain ranges, the municipal website boasts: “Lytton is the ideal location for nature lovers to connect with incredible natural beauty and fresh air freedom.” Over the past seven days, however, the village has made headlines around the world for a freakishly prolonged and intense temperature spike that turned the idyll into an inferno.
The temperature continues to rise across the Western US and Canada smashing previous records in places where snow is not unexpected in June. The Mercury later today will break more records with temperatures hitting 47.1 deg C, (117 deg F) along the US Canadian border.
Temperatures previously unknown to Canada and parts of the US-North West are making life extremely unpleasant for millions of people as an intense, prolonged, record-breaking, huge high-pressure zone that has settled over California up to Canada's Arctic territories and stretching inland through Idaho.
The crazy season is up and running ladies and gentlemen. After one of the coldest May's on record on both sides of the pond, the heatwaves and wildfires are back. Massive wildfires are burning in Arizona, California, New Mexico, Utah and Montana. The last three summers have seen record-breaking wildfire seasons in the US with each season beginning earlier and ending later.
The Telegraph fire in southeastern Arizona is currently estimated at 165,740 acres. This fast-moving, dynamic fire has prompted numerous evacuation status alerts.
The Pinnacle Fire, South of Phoenix is estimated at 15,801 acres. Fire weather conditions have been extreme, resulting in active fire behaviour. Night shift crews have been working through the night on improving constructed fire lines. The fire continues to grow due to the availability of fuels and rough terrain that limits safe access by ground forces.
Monday, 5 April 2021 Unlivable! More than 100 people have died after flash floods and landslides hit Indonesia with many more missing: By January the 23rd this year Indonesia had suffered 185 disasters including two major earthquakes, seven volcano eruptions with a further 3 showing activity, tornadoes, landslides and floods killing hundreds
Torrential rain sparked widespread destruction in the South East Asian neighbours, with water from overflowing dams submerging thousands of homes. The affected area stretches from Flores island in eastern Indonesia to East Timor. In Indonesia alone, 80 people have died with dozens still missing. Officials warn the toll could still rise.
"The mud and the extreme weather have become a serious challenge and the debris piling up has hampered the search and rescue team," Indonesian Disaster Mitigation Agency spokesperson Raditya Djati told BBC reporters.
First fires, now flood and plagues from spiders, mice and locusts - it's been a terrible year for Australia's wildlife and livestock that are now trying to survive the rainfall pummelling New South Wales. Reports of spiders swarming by residents' homes to reach higher ground have spread on social media but animals are struggling across eastern Australia. In the worst flooding in decades, close to a metre of rain has fallen in some parts of New South Wales and more is forecast to come, forcing thousands of people to evacuate. From a farm in Kinchela Creek, one man posted an image of thousands of spiders running across a muddy field.
"All the brown you can see is spiders trying to beat the floodwater," Matt Lovenfosse wrote on Facebook, adding that he expected them to soon be inside his house. In Macksville, Melanie Williams watched as "thousands" of spiders scaled the fence of her back yard, she told ABC News
I read somewhere that to really understand something is to be liberated from it. Yet, how can we liberate ourselves from our vain attempt at global progress which is, in all intents and purposes, destroying the very place in which we live? Our world is collapsing, an implosion on a scale unimaginable just a few years ago. Without a doubt, if we continue on our current path we will lose our home and everything in it. Mankind’s environment is collapsing just as fast as its society. Planet Earth’s resources are dwindling at an alarming rate. Animals, plants, fossil fuels, minerals, water, air and soil are all diminishing at an unsustainable speed while the world’s population is increasing.
Thursday, 21 January 2021 "A mixture of anxiety and disbelief!" Almost the whole of England, Wales and Northern Ireland are subject to flooding warnings for rain until Thursday morning: Thousands of people were being evacuated from their homes overnight as Storm Christoph caused widespread flooding across the UK.
