Two towns, 100 villages and main highway flooded, tens of thousands driven from homes in Myanmar –local reports

Up to 100 villages and two towns of Swar and Yedashe have been flooded in central Myanmar following the collapse if Swar Chaung Dam, which destroyed crops and drove about 70,000 from their homes, according to local reports.

Acres of rice fields have been destroyed by floodwater and a bridge as well as sections of country’s main highway connecting Myanmar’s biggest cities, Yangon and Mandalay, have collapsed.

A series of floods in central and southern Burma [“Myanmar”] displaced about 200,000 from their homes last month.

Air Pollution Makes Earth Dwellers Even Dumber –Study

Posted by feww on August 28, 2018

Submitted by a reader

Let’s face it, you must be cognitively challenged to emit so much pollution in the first place!

Prolonged exposure to polluted air has a significant impact on our cognitive abilities, especially in older men, according to a new study.

Breathing dirty air causes a “steep reduction” in scores on verbal and math tests, says the report.

“Most of the population in developing countries live in places with unsafe air. Utilizing variations in transitory and cumulative air pollution exposures for the same individuals over time in China, we provide evidence that polluted air may impede cognitive ability as people become older, especially for less educated men, the report claims.

“Cutting annual mean concentration of particulate matter smaller than 10 μm (PM10) in China to the Environmental Protection Agency’s standard (50 μg/m3) would move people from the median to the 63rd percentile (verbal test scores) and the 58th percentile (math test scores), respectively. The damage on the aging brain by air pollution likely imposes substantial health and economic costs, considering that cognitive functioning is critical for the elderly for both running daily errands and making high-stake decisions.”

Air pollution linked to diabetes

Researchers found that air pollution contributed to 3.2 million new diabetes cases, or 14% of the global total in 2016. In the US, where 30 million adults have diabetes, air pollution results in over 150,000 new cases of diabetes each year.

The diagnosed cases of diabetes almost quadrupled between 1980 and 2014, jumping from 108 million to 422 million cases, WHO reported.

How many people breathe polluted air?

Nine out of every 10 people on the planet breathe air containing high levels of pollutants, with Africa and Asia being the worst affected areas, WHO reported earlier this year.

Air pollution was responsible for an estimated 9 million deaths in 2015, according to medical research.

“Ambient air pollution alone caused some 4.2 million deaths in 2016, while household air pollution from cooking with polluting fuels and technologies caused an estimated 3.8 million deaths in the same period,” according to WHO.

“Many of the world’s megacities exceed WHO’s guideline levels for air quality by more than 5 times, representing a major risk to people’s health,” says WHO.

Over 41,000 children and adults in the WHO European Region have been infected with measles in the first 6 months of 2018. The total number for this period far exceeds the 12-month totals reported for every other year this decade. So far, the highest annual total for measles cases between 2010 and 2017 was 23,927 for 2017, and the lowest was 5,273 for 2016. Monthly country reports also indicate that at least 37 people have died due to measles so far this year.

HIoN Hits 558

Posted by feww on August 22, 2018

HIoN in terminally high territory

The FIRE-EARTH Index of Human Impact on Nature (HIoN), an index for calculating the human impact on the planetary life support systems, has exploded to a terminally high level of 558 this month. In other words, the anthropogenic impact on the living environment is now 5.58 times the planet’s rapidly diminishing carrying capacity.

Key Findings

  • The index is rising exponentially.
  • HIoN reached 328 in July 2014, skyrocketing to 558 this month (August 2018).
  • HIoN has risen 230 points, or more than 74 percent in two years.
  • The index was less than 80 in 1960, and rose to about 100 in 1980.

RAPID CHANGE IN PROGRESS!

Tidal Surge of Global Change 28 Times Faster in 21st Century: FIRE-EARTH

FIRE-EARTH Models show the rate of global change has intensified by a factor of at least 28 in the last decade compared with the 1960s.

FIRE-EARTH defines ‘global change’ as the deterioration in the planet’s life-support capacity, caused by large-scale anthropogenic impact, which is leading to a total collapse.

HIoN since End June 2012

Strong Quake Strikes Belanting, Indonesia, Fatalities Expected

Posted by feww on August 19, 2018

ER: SHS – In – DHRSWBTY
KMPH – 081902 – 3

M6.9 Strikes near Belanting, Indonesia

Magnitude: 6.9 mww
Location: 8.324°S, 116.626°E [2km S of Belanting, Indonesia]
Depth: 25.6 km
Time: 2018-08-19 14:56:28 (UTC)
Fatalities expected.

Tectonic Summary

The August 19, 2018, 14:56 UTC, M 6.9 earthquake near Belanting, Indonesia, occurred as the result of shallow thrust faulting on or near The Flores Back Arc Thrust. This event occurred 14 days after the August 5, 2018, M6.9 earthquake near Pulau Lombok, Indonesia which killed at least 476 people. Both events have a similar depth and mechanism.

Prior to the August 5, 2018 earthquake two weeks prior to today’s event, there had been six other events of M 6.5 or larger over the previous century. Four of these are likely to have occurred on the back arc thrust system; a M 6.5 in the Bali region to the west of Lombok in July 1976, and three events of M 6.5, M6.5, and M 6.6 in the Sumbawa region to the east of Lombok in November 2007 and November 2009. The Sumbawa earthquakes were associated with several deaths, hundreds of injuries, and hundreds of houses being destroyed. Since the August 5, 2018 earthquake there have been 10 M 5 and greater earthquakes. Four of these have had magnitudes larger than M 6, including an M 6.3 earthquake ~10 hours prior to this August 19, 14:56 UTC earthquake. Both the August 19, 2018 event, and the August 5, 2018 earthquake, were M 6.9. [USGS]
