Extremely Extreme Weather in 2010.. Perhaps Most Extreme on Record

Dr. Jeff Masters, a world-leading meteorologist, just finished a compilation of what he considered 2010’s top 20 extreme weather events. All in all, he considers 2010 to be the most extreme year for weather since records began and, unfortunately, with a good understanding of climate change, he hints at what we could be in for if we don’t turn things around quickly.

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

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.

Could the Japanese Earthquake Affect World Weather?

Much has been made in the news of the shift in the Earth’s axis by half a foot as a result of the Japanese earthquake. The Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University’s Earth Institute has answered that question in a press release. The simply answer, is no.

Scott Mandia on Wild Weather in U.S. {VIDEO}

Tornadoes, floods, wild weather… the world is not the same as it used to be. It’s always seen such “extreme weather events,” but not to the degree that it is seeing them today.
