    Noah’s Flood, and Then Some

    Noah’s Flood, and Then Some

    Northeastern Australia is currently under a whole lot of water. Nearly 200,000 residents have been forced to leave their home by floods that Queensland State Treasurer Andrew Fraser described as a “disaster of biblical proportions.” Fraser estimated the ultimate cost of the flooding would exceed A$1 billion (USD $980 million). That may not be truly biblical proportions, but it is pretty bad, and the people of Queensland are hurting.

    A bit closer to biblical proportions, the Indo-Asian News Service, via The Hindustan Times, declared last month that, “Noah’s flood began in 6,000 BC Canada, created Persian Gulf.” That’s an interesting headline. It is still not referring to a global flood that covered all the earth’s land, but rather a time after the last ice age when the water levels in the earth’s oceans rose by a significant amount.

    Signs of the Last Days: Historic Weather and Disasters

    Earthquakes, heat waves, floods, volcanoes, super typhoons, blizzards, landslides and droughts killed at least a quarter million people in 2010 — the deadliest year in more than a generation. More people were killed worldwide by natural disasters this year than have been killed in terrorism attacks in the past 40 years combined.

    “It just seemed like it was back-to-back and it came in waves,” said Craig Fugate, who heads the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency. It handled a record number of disasters in 2010.

    “The term `100-year event’ really lost its meaning this year.” And we have ourselves to blame most of the time, scientists and disaster experts say. Even though many catastrophes have the ring of random chance, the hand of man made this a particularly deadly, costly, extreme and weird year for everything from wild weather to earthquakes.

    Signs on the Earth: Global Changes in Weather

    Signs on the Earth: Global Changes in Weather

    A “Super Typhoon” with winds over 160 miles per hour struck the northern part of Luzon in the Philippines yesterday. The soil in large parts of the southern hemisphere of the world have been drying for nearly ten years. Marked increases in global tectonic plate shifts causing massive earthquakes around the world have increased by over 500 percent in the last 50 years.

    In Los Angeles California, a new study has shown that an earthquake in Haiti could mean that similar coastal cities such as Los Angeles are at high risk of deadly Tsunami’s or a Mega Tsunami. When geologists studied the magnitude 7 earthquake that struck Haiti on January 12, 2010, they discovered the increased risk for Los Angeles and other cities such as Kingston Jamaica and Istanbul Turkey.

    An undersea earthquake just off shore in Southern California could trigger a massive underwater landslide, which could in turn cause a massive tsunami to slam into the low lying around Los Angels within just one minute.

    Giant Ice Island Breaks Off Greenland

    Giant Ice Island Breaks Off Greenland

    An ice island four times the size of Manhattan broke off from one of Greenland’s two main glaciers, scientists said Friday, in the biggest such event in the Arctic in nearly 50 years. The new ice island, which broke off on Thursday, will enter a remote place called the Nares Strait, about 620 miles south of the North Pole between Greenland and Canada. The ice island has an area of 100 square miles and a thickness up to half the height of the Empire State Building, said Andreas Muenchow, professor of ocean science and engineering at the University of Delaware. Muenchow said he had expected an ice chunk to break off from the Petermann Glacier, one of the two largest remaining ones in Greenland, because it had been growing in size for seven or eight years. But he did not expect it to be so large.

    Pakistan Flood Kills 1,500

    Pakistan Flood Kills 1,500

    PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AFP) — Fears are growing about outbreaks of disease among 2.5 million people affected by Pakistan’s worst floods in 80 years after monsoon rains killed up to 1,500 people across the northwest. Unprecedented rains triggered floods and landslides, sweeping away thousands of homes and devastating farmland in one of Pakistan’s most impoverished regions, already hard hit by years of Taliban and Al-Qaeda-linked violence. Pakistani officials warn that a lack of drinking water is spreading disease, including cholera, and say they are working to medivac people from affected areas such as Swat, the scene last year of an offensive against the Taliban. The International Committee of the Red Cross announced that up to 2.5 million people across Pakistan have been affected by the flooding. “In the worst-affected areas, entire villages were washed away without warning by walls of flood water,” it said in a statement, noting that thousands of people “have lost everything.” Aid workers and Pakistan’s military conducted what relief efforts they could as officials warned that the death toll was rising. “There are 774 deaths registered with us, but the total number killed in the flood is 1,200 to 1,500,” Mian Iftikhar Hussain, the information minister for northwest province Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, told a news conference in Peshawar.

    Record Flooding Hits East a Fulfillment of Prophecy

    Record Flooding Hits East a Fulfillment of Prophecy

    BOSTON (AP) - A second major storm in less than a month continued to drench the East Coast as meteorologists predicted “very dangerous” flooding Tuesday in the Northeast and the wettest March on record in some places.
    The National Weather Service called on commuters to be prepared to travel alternate routes in case of washed-out roads and posted flood warnings and advisories from Maine to the Carolinas, with as much as 5 to 7 inches of rain expected over the coming days.
    The storm hits as the Northeast works to recover from a storm March 13-15 that dropped as much as much as 10 inches of rain, causing several rivers to rise and flooding basements throughout the region.

    Historic Floods Expected This Spring

    Historic Floods Expected This Spring

    A huge snowpack from a harsh winter will cause extensive flooding this spring in the upper Midwest and in the major corn-growing state of Iowa, the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration said on Tuesday.
    “We are looking at potentially historic flooding in some parts of the country this spring,” NOAA administrator Jane Lubchenco told reporters in a briefing while presenting the government’s spring flood risk outlook.
    The snowpack in the Midwest is “more extensive than in 2009,” with precipitation in December up to four times above average, NOAA said.

    Mega Tsunami

    Mega Tsunami

    The biggest recorded tsunami was produced by the Great Kamchatka Earthquake of 17 October 1737. Its peak reached more than 50 m above sea level on the North Kurile Islands. The Kamchatka Peninsula has the greatest frequency of tsunami, about one event every 12 years. The largest death toll recorded for a tsunami was over 50,000 people on the island of Taiwan on 22 May 1782, followed by 36,417 deaths caused by tsunami associated with the eruption of Krakatoa in the Sunda Straits of Indonesia on 27 August 1883. There are probably larger death tolls, but there is no way to be positive.

    Samoan Tsunami was 46 Feet High

    Samoan Tsunami was 46 Feet High

    The tsunami that killed more than 200 people in the Samoan islands and Tonga earlier this year towered up to 46 feet (14 meters) high — more then twice as tall as most of the buildings it slammed into, scientists said Friday.

    New Zealand scientists studying the size, power and reach of the tsunami as part of efforts to guard against future disasters said they found up to three destructive waves were caused by the magnitude 8.0 undersea earthquake in September.

    The massive waves that struck Samoa, American Samoa and Tonga totally destroyed traditional wooden buildings, many of them singly story, along the coast while reinforced concrete buildings sustained only minor damage, said Stefan Reese, a risk engineer with New Zealand’s National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research.

    Rising Sea Levels-Global Warming, the Great Lie

    Rising Sea Levels-Global Warming, the Great Lie

    If one thing more than any other is used to justify proposals that the world must spend tens of trillions of dollars on combating global warming, it is the belief that we face a disastrous rise in sea levels. The Antarctic and Greenland ice caps will melt, we are told, warming oceans will expand, and the result will be catastrophe.

    Although the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) only predicts a sea level rise of 59cm (17 inches) by 2100, Al Gore in his Oscar-winning film An Inconvenient Truth went much further, talking of 20 feet, and showing computer graphics of cities such as Shanghai and San Francisco half under water. We all know the graphic showing central London in similar plight. As for tiny island nations such as the Maldives and Tuvalu, as Prince Charles likes to tell us and the Archbishop of Canterbury was again parroting last week, they are due to vanish.
