1 Feb 2013 – Extreme Weather Patterns
The recent fires, floods, mud-slides, smog and FB weather conditions postings between Linn in SC/USA and Kim in Brisbane/Australia have not been good. The extreme temperatures are certain signs for global warming and the weather pattern is and should be a real concern.
And the not so encouraging reality is that as long as we live, we are contributing factors to global warming in one way or another.
Believe it or not! One of China’s richest men is giving away fresh, canned air in polluted Beijing/China. Wow, what such strategic marketing and no wonder he is the richest! The irony is how much is he contributing to the environment by producing these cans, hopefully they can be recycled!! Lorax déjà vu!!! You think that love & fresh-air are FREE, think twice 🙂
On the other hand, there are such beautiful and spectacular sides to this extreme weathers. In Nazaré/Portugal report a 30.5m/100′ possible world record for a wave. HI Garret McNamara surfed this largest wave but claimed that there had to be something wrong with him as the thrill was not as he had hoped!
Watched 3 movies, Elles, Cloud Atlas and Beasts Of The Southern Wild but did not do much for me and will probably be soon forgotten. Perhaps it is unfair to rate movies this week, the mind and focus are more on the environmental issues.
Riding the Tiger again and this time bound for HKG. No posting till I get back middle of next week.
All across the world, in every kind of environment and region known to man, increasingly dangerous weather patterns and devastating storms are abruptly putting an end to the long-running debate over whether or not climate change is real. Not only is it real, it’s here, and its effects are giving rise to a frighteningly new global phenomenon: the man-made natural disaster – Barack Obama
