The three-degree world: cities that will be drowned by global warming

quote [ The UN is warning that we are now on course for 3C of global warming. This will ultimately redraw the map of the world ]


It would seem avoiding the 2C shift is now out of the question.

The Earth's Shrinking Ozone Hole

quote [ The largest the hole became this year was about 7.6 million square miles wide, about two and a half times the size of the United States, in September. But it was still 1.3 million square miles smaller than last year, scientists said, and has shrunk more since September.

Warmer-than-usual weather conditions in the stratosphere are to thank for the shrinkage since 2016, as the warmer air helped fend off chemicals like chlorine and bromine that eat away at the ozone layer, scientists said. But the hole's overall reduction can be traced to global efforts since the mid-1980s to ban the emission of ozone-depleting chemicals. ]

Some rare good news on the environment.

'Victory declared' over monster fatberg

quote [ A 250-metre long fatberg weighing 130 tonnes which was blocking an east London sewer has been cleared after a nine-week "battle".

The solid mass of congealed fat, wet wipes, nappies, oil and condoms was found in the Victorian-era tunnel in Whitechapel in September. ]

Nothing more satisfying then flushing wet wipes, nappies, oil and condoms

A tunnel collapsed at a North Korean nuclear test site, reportedly killing 200 people

quote [ In September, North Korea tested a powerful nuclear weapon that experts say rocked the mountain and made it unstable.

North Korean sources told TV Asahi that a tunnel collapsed on 100 workers and that an additional 100 who went in to rescue them also died under the unstable mountain.

The tunnels in and out of the test site had been damaged, and the workers may have been clearing or repairing them to resume nuclear testing.

If the test site is compromised, hazardous radioactive material left over from the blast may seep out. ]

NK will dismiss this as fake news, but if radiation levels increase in the region, there will be a response from China.

Hurricane Maria batters Puerto Rico with force 'not seen in modern history'

quote [ Hurricane Maria is pummelling Puerto Rico, bringing "catastrophic" 155mph winds and dangerous storm surges, after battering the Virgin Islands.

The "monster" storm is one of the strongest to ever hit the US territory, with warnings that heavy rain could cause landslides and storm surges of up to 9ft that risk swamping low-lying areas. ]

This is a live update storm tracker.
PR is getting its ass kicked right now.

7.1 magnitude quake kills 119 as buildings crumble in Mexico

quote [ A magnitude 7.1 earthquake stunned central Mexico on Tuesday, killing at least 119 people as buildings collapsed in plumes of dust. Thousands fled into the streets in panic, and many stayed to help rescue those trapped. Dozens of buildings tumbled into mounds of rubble or were severely... ]

Damn - 32 years ago today in 1985, a massive earthquake hit Mexico City, and today a massive earthquake just hit Mexico City.
