This week’s au courant links, après Flint le déluge edition:
- Hurricanes Pali and Alex tore it up.
- The above might well be because of the rising amount of
Congressman-made heat trapped in the oceans since the late 90s.
- Meanwhile Canadian ice roads are melting while ice mass loss continues in Greenland.
- Scientists suggest drought caused by climate change will hit developed nations harder.
- The above while the world’s wettest place suffers a drought.
- Back in Cali a lake rises 20 feet in less than a week, though scientists say the state may never recover from the last 4 year drought.
- Meanwhile Mississippi floods and floods and floods and…
- Congressional ReThugs jumped in to help the nation’s water problem and that mean Obama blocked them!
- Which means that folks in the Florida Keys and Miami will just have to learn to love hip-waders and small skiffs.
- Inland scientists have discovered that the Great Lakes are warming twice as fast as the oceans.

And finally, what the sullen, well dressed bulimic will be wearing this Spring:
- Which means the population in Oklahoma, as just one example, may be declining over the next generation. And, of course, the costs of fracking don’t stop there: Wichita, KS, is still trying to figure out how much damage to its public buildings the man-made Oklahoma earthquakes will cost its citizens. Don’t be surprised to see earthquakes-from-fracking lawsuits in the future for damage caused across state lines. ↩
