Over a Million Forced to Evacuate as 'Potentially Castrophic' Cyclone Fani Makes Landfall in India

Over a Million Forced to Evacuate as 'Potentially Castrophic' Cyclone Fani Makes Landfall in India

Jake Johnson, staff writer

A storm that meteorologist Eric Holthaus characterized as "one of the strongest" cyclones in India's recorded history made landfall on Friday amid warnings of "potentially catastrophic" wind, rain, and ocean surges.

I was surprised to see a forecast of a 10% chance of tropical storm formation over South Florida, on May 2, last night. Hurricane season has extended itself.

When a wildfire threatens your town, the adults in your town plan on fighting the fire (and/or evacuation warnings). We’re faced with catastrophic climate change that could wipe out most of the world’s agricultural acreage in time. I call for the adults (or anyone willing to grow up fast) to plan to mitigate climate change.

Let’s expect that in the future, public pressure shall create at least some friendly governments willing to provide limited R&D support. What do we develop? What do we hope to ramp up production for? How do we subsidize farmers to sequester carbon? Who sits on the integrity committee?

So, are you going to watch the “Game of Thrones” climate change analogy and huddle in the crypts to be eaten, or are you going to participate in the planning?

Here at home the Pine Ridge Rez is under great stress and is the mid-west all the way down to the gulf. There is flooding everywhere and it isn’t being reported, why? On the Rez they are in talks with FEMA for assistance. They have to talk about about because of Tribal Law and such. The Red Cross is helping out in Davenport Iowa which is under water due to a levee breaking and all this water hasn’t made to the gulf yet. We are starting to get our asses kicked, are you prepared mentally? Don’t be shy in seeking and asking for help, okay?

It’s likely another weekend of golf or mayhem for Trump.

Warmer sea temps means more evaporation.In other words, it will probably rain in New York all summer, like it did last year. Protect yourself from lightning at all costs.
