Not sure if this is where Florence stuff should go, but...

Does anyone have friends or relatives affected by Hurricane Florence? Hope all are safe. Looks like bad flooding, but not as bad a storm as feared.

in NA- Hurricane Florence@140mph maximum sustained winds
in SEAsia and EAsia- Super Typhoon Mangkhut@180mph maximum sustained winds.

Yeah, Global Warming is not real  ::)

We better start taking care of our environment.

That really doesn't prove anything.  There have been plenty of nasty hurricanes in the past before the Global Warming mantra took off.  Florence was bad because it slowed to a crawl moving along the coast and dumped torrential rains not because of wind speed.  It didn't even reach category 5.

Based on data from about seven decades of storms, Kossin found tropical-cyclone speed had decreased globally by 10 percent from 1949 to 2016, according to a paper published in June in the scientific journal Nature.
The reason is that climate change is warming the Arctic much more than it is heating up the Tropics, easing the pressure difference between the two, he said in an interview on Wednesday.

My aunt and grandfather both live in Wilmington, but luckily were spared.  My aunt's house only sustained minor damage to her roof and my grandfather lives in an apartment in an independent living community on the 3rd floor.  They have generators to keep the common areas going, but he'd doesn't have electricity in his apartment, neither does my aunt.  They have no idea when the power will come back on, it could be days or weeks.

But not everyone was so lucky, and the flooding down there is real.  There are still areas that are completely impassable, including large sections of interstate 40 south of the junction with interstate 95.  Anyone who lives near a river probably lost everything.

You can deny it all you want, living in the Pacific we feel it every year. I don't know what they teach you in school, but Global Warming was already being taught to us when I was in Grade School. That was more than 20 years ago! We had nasty Typhoons then, I remember one in 1995. But none of them came close to these last 5-7 years. None of them did this



Maybe in your concrete home there in Philly you cannot feel it, but these people, they feel the effects of Global Warming. I don't get why people like you do not think it is real.
