November 2019: UK floods, Australia scorched, US to freeze

Post by Squire »

Abnormal climate conditions strike across the globe as a portent of chaos likely from the effects of Global warming.

Its already too late because climate change has momentum and it will take decades to reverse the momentum.

Bend over and kiss your anus goodbye.

The USA is expecting some abnormally cold conditions after unusual Autumn heat waves last month.

Next week's Arctic blast will be so cold, forecasters expect it to break 170 records across US
Doyle Rice
USA TODAY

This week's cold snap is only an appetizer compared with the main Arctic blast that's coming next week, meteorologists said. That freeze could be one for the record books.

"The National Weather Service is forecasting 170 potential daily record cold high temperatures Monday to Wednesday,” tweeted Weather Channel meteorologist Jonathan Erdman. "A little taste of January in November."

The temperature nosedive will be a three-day process as a cold front charges across the central and eastern U.S. from Sunday into Tuesday.

The front will plunge quickly through the northern Plains and upper Midwest Sunday, into the southern Plains and Ohio Valley Monday, then through most of the East Coast and Deep South by Tuesday, the Weather Channel said.

High temperatures on Monday may be stuck in the teens and 20s in the Midwest and around the Great Lakes. It could be the coldest Veterans Day on record in cities such as Chicago and Minneapolis, according to the Weather Channel.

By Tuesday, record cold is possible in the Northeast, Ohio Valley and portions of the South. Highs may get only into the 30s as far south as Alabama.

The Florida Panhandle may shiver with lows in the 30s Wednesday and Thursday morning.

Low temperatures may fall below freezing all the way to the Gulf Coast. The most intense cold will be in the northern Plains where temperatures may fall below zero, according to AccuWeather. Gusty winds will make it feel even colder across the region, and time spent outside will need to be limited.

In addition to the cold, a storm system may develop over the central USA, AccuWeather said, bringing icy conditions to the central Plains near the dividing line of warm and cold air next week.

Snow may be in the forecast for portions of the eastern and even southern USA as the storm is likely to track in that direction into the middle of the week.

It is always a question of balance, with our Mother, and what's happening with the climate is just our Mother's efforts to overcome the effects of us, her spawns of evil. So much potential, but UTTER DISASTER.
We will be put down, ruthlessly, and we MUST be put down, if our Mother, Earth, is to continue to enable life in the universe.

Frankly, WE have caused our own doom, and we are going to suffer.

Sadly, many innocent creatures will also be decimated.

This is just the beginning. We cannot turn it around now. It is too late.

Some good things are happening that will not stop because of economics: RE and EVs.

Governments could accelerate that with decent policies. Not here, of course, we hafta get a budjet surplice ya kno?

No MONK.
I am afraid you are among those who think this is retrievable. It isn't. Pretend all you like about what you'll do ..in the future.

But you see, YOU, or I, don't get to choose.

OUR MOTHER EARTH will take all necessary steps to wipe us off the Earth. Pretend all you like.... you're only fooling yourself.

Sorry don't agree with you there Pinky… We will be fine, there is so many people now figuring out better ways to look after our environment and reverse what we are doing to our home, Will the earth stay the same, hell no and unfortunately unless it makes a profit nothing will be changed, a good step would be to get rid of Corporations and bring back accountabily into our globe. I can see lots of good land and water being destroyed and fewer people and lots of death, but as a whole we will survive....My hope is that good change happens sooner than later , or a lot of our family and friends wont be around . :purple

We ain’t dead yet so no crying, wailing and rending of clothes yet.

RE, VE are cheaper than fossil fuel alternatives. Trumpy could not stop mine closures, bankruptcies of coal miners, coal fired powerstations—that is the power of economics. Here the shambles cannot keep coal fired power stations going nor halt stop RE tho stupid “policies” don’t encourage more investment. A pity that uncritical thinking, emoting, stopped nuclear power going ahead here. We have land, we have the uranium (and thorium tho it is no better than uranium) and we have stable land out of reach of tsunamis: should have started on this in the 1990s. We also have deep mines in geologically stable land to store waste. Criminal this did not go ahead, Hazelwood could have closed a decade earlier.

Yes hindsight is wonderful, but for the future Nuke just isn't a viable proposal with True Renewable energy and storage getting Better and Cheaper everyday and Nuke getting harder to build , each new project blowing out trying to make them safer..... just the fact they are trying to say with a Carbon tax they could get economical is silly, Renewable sources now are cheaper than Fossil Fuels with no Carbon Tax and getting cheaper:purple

A carbon price would make nuke competitive to fossil fuels. I want no fossil fuels burned, full stop!

We could build a large offshore windfarm, make SA independent of the east coast coal fired powerstations but, noooo, the idiotic Libs here are concerned with privatising the railways. Won’t do any good, irrelevant to trying to cope with AGW. Libs are really just into neoliberalism, favors for mates.

I am simply saying the way HUMANS have decimated the earth requires a huge payback. Our population is so excessive to our environment we are overall doomed to die lots of horrible deaths. It is what we do. Create our own destruction.

So.….
SOME of us will survive, I have no doubt of that... and I think we may learn something.
I seriously hope PROFIT as a driver ceases to exist. But if, as you suggest, money remains the key to human survival...?? Nah.. don't agree.
THAT only matters when we swarm the face of the earth, competing and destroying every fucking square inch...

With JUST a few people, we might make it.

But we are fecund and we have no guiding principles that educate all of us as to what is important. . BIG FAMILIES in poor places.. it just doesn't work.. and now we are seeing the outcomes of our social policies.

Do you think a miracle is going to save us.?

No.. our culture is doomed, just like all previous civilisations were doomed... we are no different.

We are HUMAN, and as such are the most destructive creatures on earth.
