Berserk weather: Russia fires reach Chernobyl, UN warns of 2nd wave of death in Pakistan, Rains threaten China mudslide disaster zone

According to meteorologists monitoring the atmosphere in the northern hemisphere, unusual holding patterns in the jet stream are to blame for the extreme weather in Pakistan and Russia. Sky News' weather presenter Lucy Verasamy said: "Extreme weather in one place will have a knock on effect elsewhere. Duhh!

"High pressure in Russia means low pressure elsewhere as all the systems are interconnected." Gee is that supposed to be earth shattering enlightenment? Experts point the finger of blame towards climate change but say it cannot be proved conclusively. I can! They are all inter related and this has never happened on this scale. "This weather is very unusual but there are always extremes every year," said Professor Andrew Watson from the University of East Anglia. Never like this!

Russia fires reach Chernobyl zoneRussia tackles wildfires it says have reached a region contaminated by Chernobyl nuclear fallout, amid concern they could spread radiation.

The United Nations warned on Wednesday of a second wave of deaths from floods in Pakistan unless help arrives soon as President Asif Ali Zardari defended his decision to travel abroad as the disaster unfolded.

Rescuers racing against a potential new deluge on Wednesday hurried to drain an unstable lake formed by China's worst mudslides in decades, as the death toll surged past 1,100.

Berserk Weather Causes Worldwide Chaos From floods in Pakistan to droughts in Russia, "extreme and very unusual" weather across the world is bringing death and misery to millions of people.

Someone finally realized that global warming doe not exist. Yeah right! What we have is global weather instability it sounds a bit worse that the rather nicer name of global warming. we need to realize global weather instability, has rather nasty habits of creating the worst the worse storms in living memory, the driest weather in living memory, the worst floods, the biggest hail storms, the worst this, the worst that, we need to drop the global warming tag, and tell it how it is, Global weather instability kills, destroys, ruins, it does the opposite of what it should do, and we need to realize we have left it to late, we need now to start to think of what we can do to give our children a chance, as if we Carry on what we will give them is too difficult to contemplate. That said. Global instability = Global warming!

One thing the nay sayers refuse to realize is that Fact: Global instability is due to Global warming whether it is natural, man mad, or a combination of both. Everything else aside, the Pakistan Floods May Rival 3 Recent Disasters Put in perspective Maurizio Giuliano, a spokesman for the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, said Monday if the Pakistan government's calculations are correct, the scale of the disaster could be worse than Haiti's January earthquake, the 2004 tsunami, and the 2005 Pakistan earthquake combined and they are not done. That's 6 years folks getting wider and wider and worse and worse. When are they going to wake up?

But Jim, Britney wasn't wearing pantys again. Don't you know that's the big story. And they wonder why people are so stupid. To find out what's really going on, we have to search it out. Just wait till this Gulf thing starts it's effects. People don't realize it affected the whole Earth.

Tim I would have to see for myself but seriously we have screwed this planet up big time and the Gulf has added to it exponentially. All we need is another world war to finish it off as habitable. They better wake up quick unless they know of another planet we can reach and I doubt it!

The damage to the gulf is already being advertised as a pre-existing condition.

BP pundits are saying the reason it didn't cause much damage is that the Gulf was already mostly dead.

FOX News Viewers will of course, buy this tale, hook line and sinker.

I still have my memories... Last time I was at the Gulf I was working on my laptop on a short dock in a little bay in Tarpon Springs. While a I worked a red tip shark swam by and splashed around in front of me. Later that day I was back on the dock with a six pack. After a while I was dozing and a dolphin came by and splashed me to wake me up. :)

I'm sure that if I posted this story on a Reich wing site these days, folks would be telling I'm full of crap, that there hasn't been dolphins or red tipped sharks in the GOM for years.

You forgot the 100 sq. mile chunk of ice that just broke off of Iceland. And of course all of the glaciers that are now hundreds of yards smaller.

But don't worry and don't forget to buy gold! Beause when the poop hits the fan nothing will taste better than 22 carrots.

There was a period when the Puget Sound here was starting to come back. Seems all that went out the window when GW took office. The Sound is now slowly becoming acidic and not by any natural causes.

Boy are you guys without a clue. Mother Earth will take care of Climate Change just like she healed the Gulf.

an average patriot said...

Wease I am sick that they will get away with destroying the gulf and worse and say it wasn't their fault. We are so screwed. I say it too much but we do not matter only the money makers do. Your wonderful memories are history for that area.

an average patriot said...

Demeur that was last monday! Greenland Iceberg Four Times Bigger Than Manhattan Breaks Off Glacier That's 100 square miles, that is huge. It is not unprecedented but it is happening more often. Natural or man made or both, Global warming can not be denied by the honest observer.

Yeah I know Tom! By self destructing but that is us too.
