The huge strain caused by the climate crisis could cause an economic recession “the likes of which we’ve never seen before,” a US study has warned.

The increase in prevalence of extreme weather, bringing deadly heatwaves, more severe storms, and causing wildfires and floods, is insufficiently accounted for in financial markets, raising the possibility of a sudden correction when serious problems arise, according to new research from University of California.

ANTARCTIC LASER WEAPON Orbit Laser! Can HAARP be used for weather modification, inducing droughts, floods, hurricanes etc.. to affect food production world wide ?

(wetterhampelmann.wordpress.com) This is an interesting film showing what ?? pro Geo-engineering experts can you please explain global warming again. Is it possible to use HAARP tech to micro wave the poles? Can HAARP be used for weather modification, inducing droughts, floods, hurricanes etc.. to affect food production world wide (use food as a weapon- Henry Kissenger- Bilderburg) ?? Lets get to the truth my friends, facts are becoming available so get up and stand up for your right to LIVE.

It looks for all the world like polar sea ice, which has been sliced and diced by some high tech, space-based means, for reasons that I don’t understand but which I could only imagine would result in faster melting of said sea ice…

UK : Floods so devastating they can be seen from space: Before and after satellite images reveal scale of deluge in the West Country

These amazing satellite images reveal the devastating march of floodwater across the Somerset Levels. The snapshots were taken 400 miles above the earth by the UK Space Agency’s disaster monitoring satellite, the UK-DMC2, before and after the region was flooded. The astonishing images show the Rivers Parrett and Tone bursting their banks with thousands of gallons of water drowning low-lying villages. Tiny islands have been formed where meeting waterways have burst their banks – including the tiny village of Muchelney, cut off by the Parrett and Yeo for seven weeks.

The Century of Disasters Meltdowns. Floods. Tornadoes. Oil spills. Grid crashes. Why more and more things seem to be going wrong, and what we can do about it. By Joel Achenbach

EXCERPT
This will be the century of disasters.

In the same way that the 20th century was the century of world wars, genocide, and grinding ideological conflict, the 21st will be the century of natural disasters and technological crises and unholy combinations of the two. It’ll be the century when the things that we count on to go right will, for whatever reason, go wrong.

Late last month, as the Mississippi River rose in what is destined to be the worst flood in decades, and as the residents of Alabama and other states rummaged through the debris of a historic tornado outbreak, physicists at a meeting in Anaheim, Calif., had a discussion about the dangers posed by the sun.

Solar flares, scientists believe, are a disaster waiting to happen. Thus one of the sessions at the American Physical Society’s annual meeting was devoted to discussing the hazard of electromagnetic pulses (EMPs) caused by solar flares or terrorist attacks. Such pulses could fry transformers and knock out the electrical grid over much of the nation. Last year the Oak Ridge National Laboratory released a study saying the damage might take years to fix and cost trillions of dollars.

But maybe even that’s not the disaster people should be worrying about. Maybe they should worry instead about the ARkStorm. That’s the name the U.S. Geological Survey’s Multihazards Demonstration Project gave to a hypothetical storm that would essentially turn much of California’s Central Valley into a bathtub. It has happened before, in 1861-62, when it rained for 45 straight days. The USGS explains: “The ARkStorm draws heat and moisture from the tropical Pacific, forming a series of Atmospheric Rivers (ARs) that approach the ferocity of hurricanes and then slam into the U.S. West Coast over several weeks.” The result, the USGS determined, could be a flood that would cost $725 billion in direct property losses and economic impact.

EXCERPT
BOUT 300 people were evacuated from a flooded and crocodile-infested town in the Northern Territory after the deluge from Cyclone Carlos caused the Daly River to rise to 14.9m.

Authorities estimate nearly every resident of the town of Daly River, located 200km south of Darwin and named after the creek that runs through its centre, had been moved by boat to a school at nearby Woolianna.

The river is expected to remain above 14m for a week. The Northern Territory Emergency Services director, Peter Davies, said buses had started moving people from the school.

“From there, those who don’t have anywhere else to go will be taken to Batchelor College,” Mr Davies said yesterday.

“We offered people the opportunity to evacuate on Saturday and they said no. But this morning, when the same offer went up, pretty much the whole community wanted to leave.”
