It's a fact: climate change made Hurricane Harvey more deadly | Michael E Mann | Opinion | The Guardian - There is a simple thermodynamic relationship known as the Clausius-Clapeyron equation that tells us there is a roughly 3% increase in average atmospheric moisture content for each 0.5C of warming. Sea surface temperatures in the area where Harvey intensified were 0.5-1C warmer than current-day average temperatures, which translates to 1-1.5C warmer than “average” temperatures a few decades ago. That means 3-5% more moisture in the atmosphere. &!

currently there is no plan b, bc there is no planet b. how do you adapt to rapid change. Hurricane Sandy - was only a tropical storm, 13ft storm surge "Climate Change is here." Storm Surge - 2013/14 UK has been a victim too. >> Climate change deniers are sponsored and supported by the lobby of the Fossil fuel industry. Fossil fuel industry is the strongest most powerful political lobby industry in history, followed by Wall Street and big Pharma. *Christian Parenti // Koch Industries - Koch Brothers have huge interest in keeping the petrochemical industries they own, running. Thus fund climate change denier campaigns massively. + + +

It's Global Warming, Stupid - Businessweek
Rising temperatures. Oceans heating up, more moisture in air. More energy for storms and hurricanes and general extreme weather events like torrential rain, blizzards, and prolonged droughts.


the nature of the thought of the problems is, that not just one making change, making sacrifice etc - is making an impacts - it is when everyone is doing it.
but game theory, capitalism, short-term thinking, nature of our culture is preventing us from doing the long-term good ... just look at the current sovereign debt crisis, pension obligations, public health crisis or obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. just look at the destruction of the planet, of the environment, deforestation, pollution, toxic rain, ...


we need to address the issue, need to start pay for it now, because the damage will be beyond repair.


after sandy, public transport came to a standstill; you have to question - where are the cycling lanes???

[10.15 Uhr] "Unwetter werden häufiger und heftiger"

An extreme Unwetter wie den Sturm "Sandy" werden sich die Bürger nach Ansicht des deutschen Umweltbundesamt-Präsidenten Jochen Flasbarth gewöhnen müssen. "Extreme Wetterereignisse werden häufiger & heftiger",twitterte Flasbarth und fügte an: "Hurikkan Sandy ist kein 'Beweis' für den Klimawandel, aber er liegt im Prognosekorridor."


More energy into the Oceans (Warmer), more vapour, more rain and stronger winds with Storms and Hurricanes.
Physics - energy doesn't get lost.
