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?
