Scientists warn California could be struck by winter ‘superstorm’ – Yahoo! News
“The risk is gathering momentum now, scientists say, due to rising temperatures in the atmosphere, which has generally made weather patterns more volatile.”
I hate to keep harping here, but our poisoning of the environment is the only reasonable cause of each and every mega natural disaster that has been coming down the road. Our biggest threat continues to be the destabilizing pockets of methane in the ever warming tundra and waters of the arctic circle. If these pockets should ever reach the critical point to where they ignite, scientist predict that the resulting explosion will create a world wide “thermocolypse”, which will result in an instant global mass extinction.
I can’t preach this enough; we need to drastically reduce our ecological foot print, and fast.
