Article links: drop them here!
« on: August 06, 2016, 02:17:33 AM »
Anything related in anyway to climate change or ice. Need an article pick one up. Got one,drop off a link. It may be a good thing to focus here on mainstream media articles as I believe there are already threads available for deeper scientific papers and direct university studies and so forth. I am sure it would also be appreciated if we avoid sensationalists and their blogs.

I do not remember hurricanes and tropical storms taking the paths they do now and causing damage in the same way by stalling so long. Some think climate change has affected the behavior. I will let everyone decide for themselves, but am posting this along with the other flooding anyway.

At least 40 dead.

Thanks Tigertown. I Live in Florida about half way down the peninsula. This low pressure system was closer to us early this week, then moved a bit west. If the system had stayed in place, we could be dealing with a lot of flooding right now.

Another feedback? Warming in tropics makes thinner low cloud cover. That makes it warmer without the cooling effect of these clouds.Then the clouds (low-level) get even sparser. And, so on.

More flooding in Hainan, China. 300mm of rain and 24,000 evacuated. I guess this was only moderately important to the media as I could only find raw footage and really nothing anywhere else.

Re: India floods

Not so good. Responding to flooding political base in Bihar, the federal government of India has opened the Farakka Barrage, allowing unimpeded floodwater into Bangladesh. If the gates had remained closed Bengal and Calcutta might have flooded as well, which from the point of view of New Delhi, might not have been a bad thing either, since those are opposition dominated. But flooding in Bihar was a current point of pain for New Delhi, so the politically best thing to do was open Farakka, what the hell, Bangladeshis dont vote in Indian elections.

Increased water into Bangladesh is coming from both the Ganges and the Brahmaputra which unite there. The latter has flooded out all those rhinos and elephants in Assam in the news lately. And killed a buncha people.

No good outcomes here. Nor for Louisana. Spare a tear for the flooded people, because for sure, their overseers don't.
