  • UN: Weather-Related Disasters Occur Almost Daily (Women, children hardest hit)

    Reuters ^ | Nov. 23, 2015 | Tom Miles
    GENEVA, Nov 23 (Reuters) - Weather-related disasters such as floods and heatwaves have occurred almost daily in the past decade, almost twice as often as two decades ago, with Asia being the hardest hit region, a U.N. report said on Monday. While the report authors could not pin the increase wholly on climate change, they did say that the upward trend was likely to continue as extreme weather events increased. Since 1995, weather disasters have killed 606,000 people, left 4.1 billion injured, homeless or in need of aid, and accounted for 90 percent of all disasters, it said. A recent...

    A deep freeze set in across the Midwest on Sunday with low temperatures forecast in the single digits and a few below zero, turning the season's first major snow into ice that made some roads treacherous to travel. After snow on Friday and Saturday across much of the region, temperatures plunged behind the front. The National Weather Service forecast 20 degrees or lower across six states from North Dakota to Illinois. Fargo, North Dakota, could dip to 11 degrees by early Sunday. Madison, Wisconsin, could see 7 degrees and Des Moines 12. Parts of Iowa, northwest Illinois and southern Wisconsin...

They claim that October had the highest temperature anomaly ever recorded for any month....Somehow, they managed to calculate Earth’s temperature within 0.01 degrees – even though they had no temperature data for about half of the land surface, including none in Greenland and very little in Africa or Antarctica.

    CRISFIELD, Md.—Can you have your cake and island too? The folks on Maryland’s Smith Island, tucked offshore in the Chesapeake Bay, have tried mightily to save their dwindling archipelago with a distinctive eight-to-twelve layer cake. The cakes have done great. The island, less so. Smith Islanders have long baked a cake called the Smith Island Cake, with up to a dozen pencil-thin layers of cake and frosting. And for nearly as long, the island’s economy and population have slumped—to 169 citizens at last estimate. So in 2008, state lawmakers hit on a solution: Make the cake the state dessert. On...

    Global warming caused FOURTEEN extreme weather events last year and affected every continent but Antarctica, researchers reveal New scientific analysis shows the fingerprints of man-made climate change on 14 extreme weather events in 2014, hitting every continent but Antarctica. Dozens of scientists from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and across the world examined 28 strange weather conditions last year to see if global warming partly increased their likelihood or their strength. In a series of papers in a 180-page, peer-reviewed report, the scientists spotted some effects of climate change in half of them.

Most of the 1.3 billion pounds of pumpkins produced in the U.S. end up in the trash, says the Energy Department’s website, becoming part of the “more than 254 million tons of municipal solid waste (MSW) produced in the United States every year.”

    ...."We were fortunate as to where it made landfall. It was not a densely populated area," said Dennis Feltgen, a meteorologist and spokesman for the U.S. National Hurricane Center. "You and I would be having a very different conversation if this went over the top of Puerto Vallarta." He said the lack of fatalities was probably the result of the storm's narrow footprint. Category 5 winds extended 15 miles out on either side of the eye, and hurricane-force winds extended for 35 miles from the center of the storm. On Saturday, Patricia's maximum sustained winds had dropped to 30 mph...

    After Hurricane Patricia menaced Mexico as one of the strongest storms to ever make landfall, officials said early reports showed no major damage Saturday as the once-ferocious system deteriorated into a post-tropical cyclone. Howling winds had battered trees, flooded streets and ripped down power lines overnight Friday in coastal areas of southwestern Mexico but the posh tourist resorts, bustling ports and fishing villages dotting the Pacific Coast region appeared largely unscathed as the storm soaked mostly sparsely populated stretches. Rescue workers were still assessing the damage from the record-setting hurricane, and there were no immediate reports of casualties. Mexican...

In the years prior to civil war breaking out in Syria, that country also experienced its worst drought on record, she said during a political speech at Stanford University. Farming families moved en masse into urban centers, increasing political unrest and further priming the country for conflict.

    A "blob" of abnormally cold water in the North Atlantic, located near Greenland, has the potential to put enough drag on the ocean current to impact weather conditions in the years to come. According to data compiled by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), sea surface water temperatures over much of the Atlantic were warmer than average spanning January to August 2015. Waters from the northwestern Caribbean to the central part of the ocean were not only very warm but were record warm. However, very chilly to record cold water has developed near Greenland, the NOAA data revealed. The...

    Science Daily ^ | 10/9/2015 | University of Southampton
    A researcher has produced a scientific study of the climate scenario featured in the disaster movie 'The Day After Tomorrow'. In the 2004 film, climate warming caused an abrupt collapse of the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation (AMOC), leading to catastrophic events such as tornadoes destroying Los Angeles, New York being flooded and the northern hemisphere freezing. Although the scientific credibility of the film drew criticism from climate scientists, the scenario of an abrupt collapse of the AMOC, as a consequence of anthropogenic greenhouse warming, was never assessed with a state-of-the-art climate model.Now scientists have found that, for a period of...

It was a tropical storm that formed out there in the southeastern Caribbean, and it wasn't long before we got official recognition that it was indeed a storm, and then they gave us the models, and the models all had the storm hitting somewhere in Florida.

    The Weather Channel says it is getting rid of its reality TV shows, along with morning shows led by Sam Champion and Al Roker. The struggling network is looking to get back to its roots, with less expensive programming and a lineup that appeals more to weather geeks. An estimated 50 people out of The Weather Channel's staff of 1,400 are losing jobs as a result, the network said on Thursday. The NBC Universal-owned network had lured Champion from ABC's "Good Morning America" to host "AMHQ," a weather-focused morning news program. Starting in early November, Champion will work on weather...

It might seem like summer was only last week in Germany and that's because it was. With blazing sunshine and temperatures topping 30C over the weekend, the onset of winter couldn't have been further from most Germans' minds. But in the Bavarian Alps, autumn has been skipped out altogether. At Zugspitze Germany's highest peak, at 2,962m seven centimetres of snow have already fallen, reports the Mnchner Merkur. "The...

    Climate is complex.This is true both in the conventional “wow, this is hard to figure out!” sense, and in the technical sense that people mean when they talk about “complex systems theory.” It’s so sensitive to the initial assumptions that it’s never feasible to compute exactly how the system will behave. Sometimes this is called “sensitive dependence on initial conditions,” or SDIC.This is basically why we can’t predict if it will rain on Monday, yet we can confidently predict that it’ll be colder in Boulder in December than it was in July.The difference here is between what is exactly true,...

The forecast is scheduled to be announced publicly at 6 a.m. PDT by the National Weather Services Climate Prediction Center. Officials are to hold a conference call at 9 a.m. to discuss it. Experts have said the evidence is growing stronger for a huge El Nio that would dump heavy -- perhaps historic -- rain in Southern...

The snow was piled there following the "Snowvember" storm which occurred 8 months ago. Today, despite it being late July, two snow piles remain, although hidden in plain sight. That's because to anyone unfamiliar with their real composition, the snow piles looks more like a non-descript earthen berms.
