Alaska to be the next Florida?

Professor Camilo Mora predicts 5 BILLION deaths through global warming by 2050

Professor Mora – nothing to smile about

Climate change will make the most desirable places to live currently, uninhabitable by the middle of this Century – according to a scientific paper in Nature magazine last year, and recently picked up by the New York Times snoozepaper.

California and the Southwest will be hit by drought and wildfire. The East Coast and Southeast will suffer appalling heat waves, hurricanes, and rising sea levels.

Policy makers and city planners are calculating when the future climate will depart from its normal variability. How much time do we have to act? A decade? A century?

“If you do not like it hot and do not want to be hit by a hurricane, the options of where to go are very limited,” said Camilo Mora, a geography professor at the University of Hawaii and lead author of the paper in Nature predicting that unprecedented high temperatures will become the norm worldwide by 2047.

“The best place really is Alaska,” he added. “Alaska is going to be the next Florida by the end of the century.” (more…)

Invisible Woman re-elected

Media conspiracy  - or are the Green just so boring they send everyone to sleep

Green gathering – Natalie who?

They just don’t get it do they?

The Green Party, once the repository for the hopes and dreams of UK environmentalists, continues to do everything it can to make itself unelectable.

The party conference currently being held somewhere in the UK just announced they re-elected the existing leader to be leader again. In a tacit recognition that nobody had noticed, the press release reminds us that the Invisible Woman is named Natalie Bennet and she has two other equally invisible deputies.

Ms Bennet has the added feature of speaking in an Australian accent – which most voters find incredibly confusing. To lead a British political party is to apply to lead the British nation. On the Today programme this morning listeners were asking – “why is some Ozzie lecturing us about the environment? – They can’t even keep their own country clean.” (more…)

Building a tiny homeRyan Lapinski always wanted to be MacGyver, the TV character solving problems with a bit of candle wax and a plastic bag.

“I watched that show religiously … that pretty much got me interested in outdoors. Blame it all on MacGyver, I guess,” he said.

The 26 June show in the new series “America Unplugged,” on the Sportsman Channel, will feature. Lapinski and his wife, Adda Lamon, as they build an off-grid home in East Brady, Pennsylvania.

“Ever since I was a little kid, I just preferred camping over being in a structure,” said Lapinski, 38, a native of the South. (“Pick a Southern state and chances are, I’ve lived there for a little bit.”) (more…)

Solar Flares set to strike Friday
by AMY SUAREZ on JUNE 1, 2014 - 1 Comment in land

Three solar flares in the past 48 hours let forth a giant spray of particles from Earth’s sun. There is a risk that the particles will KO a large number of the planet’s satellites and communication systems.

A ‘coronal mass ejection’ (CME), a huge cloud of irradiated particles and a magnetic shockwave, could strike on Friday.
The flares already caused brief disruptions to high frequency communications, such as radio broadcasts and aircraft communications, disrupting military radio and aircraft control towers.

The X-grade solar flares were on Tuesday morning at 7.42am and 8.52am – X being the most powerful kind of solar flare – and a third X-class flare early yesterday. (more…)
