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

Cyclone HUDHUD Batters India’s East Coast

Cyclone HUDHUD is hammering eastern Indian coast, causing widespread damage and prompting the evacuation of about 400,000 people.

The “Very Severe Cyclonic Storm,” packing winds of more than 200km/h, has killed at least14 people in the states of Andhra Pradesh and Orissa, uprooting thousands of trees, knocking down power lines and destroying or damaging thousands of hectares of crops.

The cyclone could severely affect more than 10 million people along its path.

In its latest bulletin issued at 17:00 IST, INDIA METEOROLOGICAL DEPARTMENT (IMD)  said:

The Very Severe Cyclonic Storm ‘HUDHUD’ over westcentral Bay of Bengal moved west- northwestwards, crossed Andhra Pradesh coast over Visakhapatnam between 1200 and 1300 hrs ISTand lay centered at1430 hours IST of 12th October 2014 near latitude 17.8ºN and longitude 83.0ºE, about 30 km west-northwest of Visakhapatnam. It would move northwestwards and weaken gradually.

HUDHUD is forecast to dump up to 245mm of rain on some areas, said IMD, warning that storm surge of about 1 meter above astronomical tide would inundate low lying areas of Visakhapatnam, Vijayanagaram and Srikakulam districts of north coastal Andhra Pradesh by 20:00 IST.

  1. We can’t pump all that carbon into the atmosphere without something eventually happening.

    We may disagree about exactly what will happen (heating Vs cooling), but for sure, something is going to happen.

    And if we don’t know exactly how bad this “something” is going to be, doesn’t it make sense to stop pumping all that carbon into our air?

    It’s a bit like kicking a dog. You know it’s going to do something in response to your unwelcome kicking, but you have absolutely no idea what it will be. So why do it.

    Politicians and those controlling the mega wealth are the only ones who can implement appropriate action, but they won’t. Their agendas and other interests lure them away from listening to advice from the experts.

    This cartoon looks at that aspect . . . .
