THE WORLD IS GOING TO HELL IN A HANDBASKET


2005 was the third worse year for U.S. extreme-weather events, according to the national Climatic Data Center. For 2005’s first 11 months the nation had an extreme-climate index of 35, behind only 1998’s 43 and 1934’s 37.The average annual score is 20. The year began with a record down-pour in the Nevada desert and record warmth in Alaska, and it’s ending with floods in California and wildfires in Texas and Oklahoma that kiled at least 4 people and consumed over 100,000 acres. Along the way, at least 214 climate records were smashed or tied thanks to a slew of hurricanes, 21 straight days of 100-degree plus temperatures in Fresno, Calif,. and firefires tht have burned 8.64 million acres, nearly a quarter-million more than the previous recrod, set in 2000. Extremes were everywhere. Above-normal heat covered twice as much land as usual.Excessive rain and /or snow blanketed three times as much land as normal.Average daily low teperatures were warmer than normal across four times as much U.S. territory as in average years..One form of extreme weather fell short, however:tornadoes.in 2005, there were only half as many killer U.S. tornadoes as recent norms. Scientists argue if global warming is to blame…
well do’h fucking do’h……….
fuck me till a tornado snatches me from the grip of reality…
