Fire Earth

Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

More Dust Storms Plague Arabian Peninsula

Arabian Peninsula Buried Under Sand


Another dust storm sweeps over much of southern Iraq and part of Saudi Arabia in this image from January 25, 2010. The dust appears to be carried on wind blowing from the west ahead of a storm, heralded by the clouds on the left edge of the image. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite captured this image. The red dots are most likely gas flares in oil refineries in the region. Plumes of black smoke from oil fires rise from some of the refineries.
