  • Raw Video: Dozens Of People Loot Dollar Store As Flooding Cuts Wilmington Off From The Rest Of NC

    09/17/2018 12:13:49 PM PDT · by PFW · 45 replies
    A major emergency brings out the best in some people, but in others it brings out the absolute worst. Shocking images of “dozens of people” ransacking a Family Dollar store in Wilmington, North Carolina have stunned the nation. This happened in broad daylight, and many of the looters didn’t even seem to care that a television news crew was filming them. Sadly, this always seems to happen whenever a major disaster takes place. Our established social order is so vulnerable, and so many people out there will gladly take advantage of others if they believe that there is an opportunity...

    North Carolina could find itself more vulnerable to damage from storms like Hurricane Florence due to a state law passed six years ago that banned using recent climate science to plan for the consequences of rising sea levels.
  • MSNBC: How Can ‘Climate Change Deniers’ Respond to Hurricane?

    On her 2:00 p.m. ET hour show on Wednesday, MSNBC anchor Katy Tur predictably exploited Hurricane Florence to push the left’s climate change agenda and condemn “deniers” in the Trump administration. She brought on liberal environmental activist Bill Nye and ex-Clinton administration official Paul Bledsoe to provide even more alarmist rhetoric. “President Trump says FEMA is ready for Hurricane Florence, but mounting evidence suggests it could incredibly difficult to deal with this disaster if climate change deniers are on the front lines of emergency response,” Tur proclaimed at the top of the segment. She then touted a new study “echoing...

    Imagine a world with affordable, clean energy, sustainable cities and communities, and decent work and economic growth for all. That is the world the United Nations imagined when it defined the 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development with “the desire to create a future where there is no poverty, the planet is protected, and all the people enjoy peace and prosperity.” But the reality is, that world can’t exist without the equal participation, and leadership, of women—as business and political leaders, investors, and contributors to the global economy.

    Pictures of the snow covered creatures have swept across social media as viewers marvel at the bizarre scenes. Kitty Viljoen captured elephants enjoying the snow in the Sneeuberg on the Western Cape of South Africa, where snow hit late last week. Sneeuberg translates to Snow Mountain and dustings are not unusual across parts of South Africa in the winter, but this cold snap comes particularly late in the season. She also photographed giraffes in snow in the Karoo semi-desert region.

    Hurricane Florence is a rapidly strengthening major storm with sustained 130 mph winds as it heads toward a potentially devastating landfall in the Southeast U.S. later this week, already prompting evacuation orders on the North Carolina coast. The National Hurricane Center is warning of “life-threatening” storm surge in the Carolinas and Virginia, as well as “a prolonged and exceptionally heavy rainfall event” in the Southeast and mid-Atlantic.

    Florence regained hurricane strength Sunday and is expected to "rapidly intensify" into a major storm in the next few days as it continues its path toward the East Coast where residents are preparing for the worst. Florence could hit the southeastern U.S. coast late this week as a Category 3 or higher and bring upon life-threatening impacts. The hurricane is expected to make landfall between late Thursday and Friday morning. "There is an increasing risk of two life-threatening impacts from Florence: storm surge at the coast and freshwater flooding from a prolonged heavy rainfall event inland," the National Hurricane Center...

    Tropical Storm Florence is quickly approaching the eastern United States, and according to the National Hurricane Center, the storm's threat to the East Coast keeps rising. The storm is traveling over warm water, and is expected to increase its speed and become a hurricane Saturday night. The National Hurricane Center forecasts Florence will be a dangerous major hurricane near the southeast U.S. coast by late next week, "and the risk of direct impacts continues to increase." "However, given the uncertainty in track and intensity forecasts at those time ranges," the National Hurricane Center tweeted, "it's too soon to determine the...

    September 10 is the statistical peak of the Atlantic Tropical Storm season, and the conga line of storms dancing across the Atlantic is not disappointing historical data. The Governors of NC and SC have declared states of emergency for a potential major hurricane landfall, while Hurricane Florence is slowly creeping westward. Florence is predicted to increase forward motion and intensity Monday. Hurricanes Hazel (1954) and Hugo (1989) are two notorious major hurricanes to make landfall in NC and SC, respectively. North Carolina has prior experience with "F" named hurricanes. Hurricanes Fran (1996) and Floyd (1999) caused widespread flooding and damage...

    Naples Daily News ^ | August 29, 2018 | Doyle Rice,
    The next tropical storm or hurricane in the Atlantic basin will be called Florence. One of the reasons for the predicted uptick in activity is that wind shear, which tends to rip apart developing hurricanes, appears to be decreasing. "There are signs now that wind shear may drop over a significant part of the Atlantic basin over the next couple of weeks," according to AccuWeather meteorologist Bernie Rayno. "When models start suggesting tropical cyclone development many days in advance in multiple parts of the Atlantic basin, while they might not be right about exactly when and where, it does indicate...

    Hello! It's been a few months since my last report about the situation in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria hit on 9/21/17. In my last report (December 2017), my Dad, who lives in Old San Juan, got intermittent power back on December 3rd. In June 2018, he indicated that he got through 2 straight weeks where the power did not go out at all, and last week he indicated that about "95% of the island has power restored". He says that he and others have gone through deep depressions because of continuous months without power. It's been a stressful 11...

    Full header: "Hundreds of Thousands of Californians Almost Lost Everything Thanks to Progressive Politicians and Scientists" How quickly Californians and the media forget. Less than 18 months ago over 200,000 Californians faced the possibility of losing everything--their homes, their belongings, their livelihoods, even the towns they live in – not because of drought but because of rain as the nearby Oroville Dam threatened to collapse. The dam in Northern California is the highest in the United States. It was struggling to cope with the amount of rain and melted snow pouring into the reservoir. A failure would have seen multiple...

    Dane County officials declared a state of emergency Tuesday morning after rain overnight Monday broke a state record for heaviest amount to fall in a 24-hour period, according to Dane County Emergency Management. The National Weather Service estimates that as much as 13 inches of rain has fallen in parts of western Dane County on Monday and Tuesday. The official state record for rainfall in a 24-hour period is 11.72 inches of rain, which occurred northeast of Mellen in northern Wisconsin on June 24, 1946. The National Weather Service has received numerous reports of rainfall from western Dane County that...

    The South China Morning Post ^ | August 12, 2018 | Crystal Tai and Marie Juhyun Lee
    While South Korea may be known as one of the world’s most technologically advanced countries, it is sorely lacking when it comes to air conditioning. For many who live here, this has become painfully obvious as an unprecedented heatwave rages across the peninsula, killing at least 42 people since the end of May. The intense heat – with the mercury rising to a sultry 39.6 degrees Celsius (103 degrees Fahrenheit) – has forced people to seek refuge outside their homes. “I have a friend who has no air conditioning,” said Kim Bum-ju, 29, a musician in Seoul. “Their home gets...

    Can you tell the difference between one degree Celsius? Hurricanes can. At least that’s what Colorado State University researcher Phil Klotzbach is banking on. His team released its last hurricane forecast of the 2018 season on Thursday, and Klotzbach offered encouraging news for those who live in the path of Atlantic storms: HURRICANE GUIDE: Everything you need to be prepared for the 2018 hurricane season. He predicted the season will bring a slightly below-average number of storms. Klotzbach anticipates the rest of the Atlantic storm season will see nine named storms, including three hurricanes and one major hurricane — a...
  • Climate Hysteria Aside, 2018 On Pace for Record Low Spending on Weather Disasters

    Because climate alarmists tell us that, with climate change, instances of extreme weather will definitely increase, the amount of GDP spent on such weather disasters is one good way to tell if the alarmists are correct. Since 1990, the amount of GDP spent on weather disasters is trending downwards. That’s bad news for the climate alarmists. Climate alarmists face a serious challenge. Their predictions and models show disastrous times decades ahead but in order to keep the public both engaged in and afraid of climate change, they are forced to sensationalize current weather events to a, sometimes, ridiculous extent.
