US Disasters in 2011 Set New Record

September 27th, 2011 | by Zachary Shahan

Yep, that's a graph of U.S. disasters according to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Looks a bit like the graphs of greenhouse gas emissions, doesn't it? Looks completely opposite the trend of Arctic sea ice. Strange


Flooding in Pakistan

September 21st, 2011 | by Kate Follot

Heavy monsoon rains over the course of August 2011 have caused widespread flood damage in Pakistan. The southern province of Sindh was hit especially hard. The horrendous flooding has effected close to 5 million people, destroyed millions of homes, killed at least 361 people and displaced 600,000 who are currently living in refugee camps because of the continually rising waters


From New York to Maryland, 100,000 Ordered to Evacuate their Homes because of Flooding

September 9th, 2011 | by Kate Follot

Still recovering from Hurricane Irene, the East Coast is being hit again by remnants of Tropical Storm Lee. Rain comes on and off for the East Coast, sometimes only drizzling, but the rivers and streams continue to rise. Among many of the areas flooded are the many towns along the Susquehanna River. Rural towns are nestled along 444 miles of water that lead down into the Chesapeake Bay. As water surged over flood walls built decades ago to protect residences from potential flooding from the Susquehanna River, 20,000 people were ordered to head for higher ground. This is said to be the worst flooding in the history of Binghamton, at least since the flood walls were built in the 1930s and '40s. Besides the town of Binghamton, nearly 100,000 people from New York to Maryland were ordered to flee the rising Susquehanna River on Thursday

Arizona Dust Storms Follow Tremendous Arizona Fires {Pictures}

The United States is getting its share of "natural" disasters this year, and the Southwest U.S. especially. Unprecedented drought, wildfires, and now dust storms. Just what the climate scientists have predicted and been warning us about for years. (Of course, expected to get much worse though if we don't change course soon.)


Montana Floods Kill One, Leave One Missing — More Extreme Weather to Come

May 24th, 2011 | by Zachary Shahan

Yes, it's not rainy season anymore, it's flooding season (unless you live in areas of the country experiencing "exceptional drought" -- the highest level of drought -- and wild fires). Montana is the latest to get extreme floods and they are now moving on towards neighboring states such as Wyoming and Utah. Let me reiterate yet again, global warming (aka global weirding) = extreme floods AND extreme drought
