Since 2006 , federally declared weather-related disasters in the United States have affected counties housing 242 million people--or roughly four out of five Americans. That's the remarkable finding of Environment America, who last week released a detailed report on extreme weather events in the U.S. The report analyzed FEMA data to study the number of federally declared weather-related disasters. More than 15 million Americans live in counties that have averaged one or more weather-related disasters per year since the beginning of 2006. Ten U.S. counties--six in Oklahoma, two in Nebraska, and one each in Missouri and South Dakota--have each experienced ten or more declared weather-related disasters since 2006. South Carolina was the only state without a weather-related disaster since 2006. The report did a nice job explaining the linkages between extreme weather events and climate change, and concluded, "The increasing evidence linking global warming to certain types of extreme weather events--underscored by the degree to which those events are already both a common and an extremely disruptive fact of life in the United States--suggests that the nation should take the steps needed now to prevent the worst impacts of global warming and to prepare for the changes that are inevitably coming down the road."




Figure 1. County-level map of federally-declared weather-related disasters between 2006 - 2011. Tornadoes and severe thunderstorms in the Midwest, and heavy rains and snows from Nor'easters, hurricanes, and other storms in the Northeast gave those two regions the most disaster declarations. An interactive version of this map that allows one to click and see the individual disasters by county is on the Environment America website.

The radical right has determined that anyone who displays more intelligence than they do is an "intellectual elitist". And that's okay; I'll gladly wear that handle, as it's far better than "unintellectual doofus". ;-)

Quoting Xyrus2000:


I find that to be unrealistic. Tokyo is well to the south of Fukushima. Given the dominant weather patterns in the area I find it hard to believe that that much contamination made it that far south, even if there were a massive plums of radioactive materials.That's not to say that there isn't any contamination. But the story doesn't make a lot of sense.



Quoting Mochizuki San - fukushima-diary.com

It’s just human to think western Japan is safe outside of Fukushima is safe. It’s just an imaginary boarder of human, has nothing to do with radiation. Radiation doesn’t think, oh I’m getting out of Fukushima, shall stop here or should I get to Tokyo by Train or car.
Look at the world map. Japan is such a tiny island. Everywhere is the same. and now they’re distributing the radioactive debris to all over Japan, to share the “pain”, which is so typical for Japanese, and all the food is contaminated. Cars, people, train, they are all contaminated and move around in Japan. There is no safe place in Japan. That’s why I got out of there.
There are 4 main islands, Honshu, Hokkaiso, Shikoku, and Kyushu. but they are so close that you can even drive by car. They are all the same.
Mr. Koide from Kyoto university said, old people have to eat contaminated food because they have responsibility for nuclear, and it’s the responsibility of future generation to accept radiation.
I dare to say no. I won’t accept anything except for completely 0Bq/kg. I have no reason to eat radiation. I completely refuse to be involved in their fantasy world like Kamikaze. I really think all of them should leave Japan soon as possible.


------------------------------------------------- ----

Add to human activity the many unaccounted natural cycles like pollen that propagates by wind and insects, winter snow meltdown waters that go down stream and carry radiation and many other factors that we aren't aware off, not living there....

Well, if you still believe that the Fukushima accident is a light one and trust what TepCo and the government are saying, then all these posts are Sensational stuff...

But you can make your own research from Enenews, fukushima-diary.com, fairewinds.com, province.com, reports from Arnie Gundersen (check out the many videos in Youtube from this engineer). For me, this is not sensational stuff, but just the tip of the iceberg.... and it's going to be news for a long time to come....

Tokyo contaminated as the worst place in Chernobyl

Following up this article..23,300 Bq/Kg of cesium from 4km of filter plant

The contamination level of Mizumoto Park turned out to be the same level of %u201Coff-limits zone%u201D in Chernobyl.
The contamination level of the park was 23,300 Bq/Kg.
According to Nuclear Safety Commission, it is converted to be 1.4 ~1.5 million Bq/m2.

In Chernobyl, if the area is more contaminated than 1.48 million Bq/m2, it was labelled as off-limits zone, which was the worst level of the pollution.
Because cesium doesn%u2019t choose Mizumoto park intentionally, at least some parts are contaminated as the worst area of Chernobyl.


I find that to be unrealistic. Tokyo is well to the south of Fukushima. Given the dominant weather patterns in the area I find it hard to believe that that much contamination made it that far south, even if there were a massive plums of radioactive materials.

If indeed this were the case, then the entire eastern coast of Japan would be heavily contaminated, and anywhere even close to Fukushima should be an irradiated wasteland. In addition, there should be plenty of stories in various cities up and down the coast about the contamination as well (with higher readings), which there doesn't seem to be.

The original story was posted here Link it seems. The measurements were performed by members of the communist party. Their methodology alone is suspect, which only measured 4 locations using a somewhat inaccurate hand-held detector you can get buy from ebay (a real detector is much more accurate, and certified).

So something doesn't add up. Either the numbers are correct and Japan's east coast will soon look like the Chernobyl "Red and Dead" forest with millions dying from spontaneous outbreaks of radiation sickness, or the numbers are wrong and this is a case of a political party trying to gain a leg up on the current government.

That's not to say that there isn't any contamination. But the story doesn't make a lot of sense.

Good Ash Wednesday to you all..

Pollution goes against God's will, say church leaders in Ash Wednesday message
Leaders of churches in Britain including the Archbishop of Canterbury and the head of Scotland's Roman Catholics have made a Lenten call for repentance and a "change of direction" to combat the dangers of climate change.



Rowan Williams has joined Cardinal Keith O'Brien, Archbishop of St Andrews and Edinburgh, among other church leaders, in signing a declaration which says reducing dependence on fossil fuels is "essential" to Christian discipleship.

The launch declaration comes on Ash Wednesday, the start of Lent, traditionally a period of penitence, prayer and reflection for Christians in the run-up to Easter. The declaration will be marked by a service in central London this evening.

Many Christians receive a mark of ashes on the forehead as a token of penitence and mortality.

"Continuing to pollute the atmosphere when we know the dangers goes against what we know of God's ways and God's will," the declaration said.

"We are failing to love not only the earth, but our neighbours and ourselves, who are made in God's image. God grieves over the destruction of creation and so should we."

Quoting greentortuloni:


Athiests don't claim any of the above necessarily. You are defining atheism as the opposite of whatever you personally believe in (I think).

I've always been curious what other beliefs were in detail more than whether or not they coincided with Atheism or not. For example, I think the Brahmans believe that we are all thoughts in the mind of God and that the Universe is The Mind of God. i don't think it makes sense to ask if that is Atheist or not but I think it is close to what a lot of scientists think.

In the same way, to redicule what scientists believe as Atheist is a bit simplistic.

- but thanks for 'agape'. I thought it was a color somewhere between the color of the desert in the morning and the color of the feeling you get when you see the ocean when you are really thirsty. Macroemotional synesthesia versus christian love... nice swing from arete.. the greek excellence as opposed to the christian 'good'.


Anyone who in a scientific debate falls back on religion, faith, or a deity as the fundamental construct for supporting their arguments has no real logical argument in the first place. It is pointless to argue with them, as no matter what evidence, science, research, or data you bring forth they will always claim they are right.

Fimmvörðuháls eruption in Iceland coincides with display of northern lights
Posted on February 23, 2012
February 23, 2012 – ICELAND – A photographer from Britain, James Appleton, has captured breath-taking pictures from Iceland, reports The Huffington Post. He captured both magma and northern lights in one shot. He stood just a few yards from an erupting volcano in order to take the pictures and they just might be one of nature’s most amazing sights. James was willing to go within a few hundred feet of an erupting volcano after working alongside vulcanologists in Iceland, and found out about Fimmvörðuháls who from his Icelandic friend. “She informed me of the eruption, and I knew immediately I had to try and get out to see it.” Not only did James have to deal with the harsh flames of the volcano, but he also had to face the frozen temperatures of a harsh Icelandic winter in order to take his remarkable pictures. “The closest I got was probably only a few hundred meters away,” said James. -Long Island Press

A tornado may be responsible for storm damage in parts of northwest Georgia.
Wednesday night, Floyd County Emergency Management Agency director Scotty Hancock told WSB's Mark Alewine their 911 center began receiving calls about damage around 9:30 p.m.
Floyd County Police have confirmed one death possibly related to severe weather. An elderly woman in her seventies suffered an apparent heart attack at the same time the roof was blown off her home. Extensive damage hampered efforts to get to the woman, she was "DOA" at a local hospital.
“I think it was possibly a tornado,” Hancock said. “We’ve got several structures with roof damage. Lots of trees down across the roadway.”
Hancock estimates 50 to 100 homes were damaged. Georgia Power says as many as 2,000 customers were in the dark during the storm.
Although it won't be confirmed until a National Weather Service storm assessment team arrives on Thursday, Hancock is confident the damage was caused by a tornado. He said the path of destruction is between a mile and a half and two miles long.
“You’ve got some trees laying one direction and some trees laying the other,” said Hancock. “Usually with straight line winds (the damage) is clearly defined. If it was a microburst, those are generally in a small area.”
The hardest hit areas appear to be along Kingston Highway, Turner Chapel Road and Freeman Ferry Road. There are no reports of any injuries.

Across the highest risk area in the ohio valley, the temperatures are around 45-50 degrees and should rise to 60-70, depending on if you believe NWS Louisville, KY or the ones in Ohio and Indiana.
The sky there is clearing so destabilization should commence shortly.

I like to follow the weather, music, and fishing; keeps my blood pressure calm (unless severe weather is threatening my particular location)and better to play guitar or re-tool my fishing gear at night rather than getting my blood pressure up watching "politics" on the TV............... Whatever happens in the political realm, and it is very important to vote, I try to support candidates who keep NOAA funded, try to fund arts programs in schools, and support clean water issues....... :)

I also try to avoid the politics and the religion.

But this one hit a button.......

Go vote. Go vote for the nutter that wears a boot on his head.

By not voting you show apathy.

By voting for a nutter you show just how displeased you are with the "main stream parties" and there useless candidates.

Always vote!
