Colorado flood

Colorado flood
The post in this blog is being posted to remind us that there are too many events of extreme climate changes that happen in the world today more often, and therefore we should be concerned and at the same time we should be looking, if there is anything that we could do to minimize these events, for this reason we are also posting this in blogger so that we could keep a record of these events; now these events have been reported in the Yahoo! News, and here under we post a full copy as it was reported.
LOS ANGELES (AFP) - The water-soaked US state of Colorado saw more rainfall Sunday that threatened to slow the search for the 500 people unaccounted for after several days of massive flooding.
Among the hundreds missing, officials suggested many may simply not be able to call loved ones because of damage to cell phone towers or power outages.
"But we're still bracing," Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper said.
"There are many, many homes that have been destroyed. A number have been collapsed and we haven't been in them yet," he told CNN.
Some 500 people are unaccounted for, Hickenlooper added.
In addition, thousands have been evacuated after torrential downpours washed away roads and inundated communities, claiming at least six lives.
Rain began pelting the western state earlier this week, with Boulder especially hard hit, seeing 7.2 inches (18.3 centimeters) of precipitation in about 15 hours starting Wednesday night.
And with more downpours affecting already flood-ravaged areas, the situation could get even worse, Hickenlooper warned.
It was raining in Boulder, a university town, by early afternoon and a flash flood warning was in effect, The Weather Channel predicted. The same was true for Denver, it said.
With the ground already saturated, "that's going to just really magnify the problems we've had so far," Hickenlooper said in reference to Boulder County.
"We're still trying to evacuate people," he added, noting that almost 2,000 residents had been moved out of Boulder alone.
Liz Donaghey, a spokeswoman for the Boulder Office of Emergency Management, said poor visibility had grounded several US National Guard helicopters deployed to the area to help people get out of danger.
"At this point it is a big concern with the weather," she told CNN in a separate interview.
On Saturday, hail the size of peas or even marbles pummeled parts of the city of Aurora, according to local weather reports. A series of thunderstorms also struck the area.
Raging floodwaters, already presumed to have killed at least five people, apparently claimed the life of a sixth.
The latest apparent victim is an 80-year-old woman who was injured and couldn't get out of her home, the Denver Post quoted John Schulz, spokesman for the Larimer County sheriff's department, as saying.
"There might be further loss of life," Boulder County Sheriff Joe Pelle told reporters earlier. "It's certainly a high probability ... We're hoping to reach everyone as soon as possible."
But some additional help was on the way, with President Barack Obama declaring a major disaster in Colorado and ordering federal aid to support state and local efforts.
"Assistance can include grants for temporary housing and home repairs, low-cost loans to cover uninsured property losses, and other programs to help individuals and business owners recover from the effects of the disaster," the White House said.
Hickenlooper welcomed the assistance, saying the Federal Emergency Management Agency "has been terrific."
The Wyoming National Guard was helping the evacuation effort after Governor Matt Mead activated five UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters and 20 crew members, the state's military department said.
Some 1,200 residents were pulled out of the Pinewood Springs area by the National Guard and Fort Carson personnel, state authorities said on Twitter.
But many others were still awaiting rescue, which authorities said could take days for some.
Officials said there were widespread power outages as streets became raging rivers after the state received months' worth of rain in just a few days.
Pictures from helicopter cameras showed heavy rain had reduced the towns of Jamestown, Lyons and Longmont to little more than islands, with ready-to-eat meals being dropped to stranded, anxious residents below.
Residents' furry friends were also stranded by the torrential rains.
"Our victims' advocates told me tonight there were almost as many pets as people getting off the evacuation helicopters today," the Larimer County Sheriff's Office tweeted.
Weld County Commissioner Sean Conway called the widespread flooding an "epic event."
"It is a once in 500 years or 1,000 years situation," he told the Denver Post.
Hickenlooper concurred. "This is a heck of a storm," he said.

This is the end of the report, we hope that one day by keeping these records in blogger we can find something that might help understand better what is really happening.

Global warming reminder

THIS BLOG HAS BEEN OPENED TO HOUSE ALL SORTS OF ISSUES ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGES, IT IS OPEN ALSO FOR DISCUSSION TO THE PUBLIC, SO ANYBODY CAN COMMENT ON IT, IF AND WHEN THEY HAVE SOMETHING USEFUL TO SAY.

Global warming reminder










Today apart the many problems we the people of this world already face, there is this problem that we are causing ourselves, because we are overusing our resources and we are causing changes in the atmosphere and this is the main cause of global warming, so we would like to remind you to try to do your share for minimizing this effect of global warming.

There are many ways for doing this, but first of all let us see what the experts say, by clicking this link of this article published on the internet,  Effects of Global Warming - practicalaction.org‎; Some of the content of this link is written here under and it reads:    

It is the world’s poorest people who are hardest hit by devastating droughts, floods and other extreme weather events. This is a massive injustice – climate change is caused by the world’s richest countries.
Around the world, Practical Action is working in different ways to tackle both the causes and effects of climate change, including
·         Working with communities to reduce their vulnerability to the disasters made worse and more numerous by climate change, and to help them adapt to the longer term challenges which a changing climate pose.
·         Working with other organisations to share our learning of what works well and what can be done to make programmes of work with poor communities even more effective.
·         Working with national and international bodies around the world to create and strengthen policies which reduce emissions and encourage funding and focus on adaptation to climate change.
·         Working with schools and teachers to encourage the delivery of effective, exciting climate change lessons which engage today's young people in the issues of climate change, creating a generation of global citizens who understand the impact of their actions on the environment and people around the world.
·         Launching and supporting campaigns designed to raise awareness of the impacts of climate change on vulnerable communities, and enabling them to take tangible action to support strong and urgent change at the local, national and international level.
----------------------------------
If we take this problem seriously, we should be doing more than what is being done at the present time, for instance in Australia it is election time soon, but both major parties have not come up with anything urgent that needs to be done, they are happy to go along and look at each other and also at the rest of the world. The great concern here is this; are we going to be able to do enough to stop global warming? Or, are we going to leave it for too late and we will ruin our climate forever? 
This post is being written just to remind people what we need to do, for the future generations of mankind.

Be healthy, wealthy and wise

Be healthy, wealthy and wise

Hi everybody!

This is Menfranco Laws posting this time, to encourage you to be healthy wealthy and wise. We would also like to reintroduce first the reason of these writing posts: These posts are being written to encourage you to help save planet earth; you see every little helps, and if everyone of us does something to help the environment then it is going to be easier to save our planet, after all we need this planet the way it is if we want to survive in the future.
Also, these writings are being created to find ways on how we can discuss and reach consensus about how to find a way which may help the environment. The word key here is to discuss and reconcile ourselves with the environment, since any other ways may well be futile for the future of all humanity.
In these posts we would like to ask people what they think about these climatic issues being discussed in here, while we will present them with what is happening in the world nowadays; but at the same time we intend also to somehow compare the boring old time ways of living to the hectic ways of nowadays living, this may well be interesting to some people.
In a way this will give us a broader base to discuss about public concerns, and also make the subject more interesting. The old writings ways of life that we would be using to compare belong to one of the people that are contributing in these blogs; they have not been published yet at the time that we are writing this the first time, so let us hope that it works out well.
If you are following this blog you know that last post that we have written was about grow your own vegies, I think that is a very good way to go; so, let us see how we can achieve that and at the same time Help Planet Earth a little bit.
Well, as we all know every little thing may help Mother Nature keep the right balance, and if we do the right things, we can be healthy wealthy and wise at the same time. We do not have to grow just vegies; what about growing flowers or fruit trees if you have enough space.
It would be wise to start a small garden, and try not to spend too much money if it is possible, recycle all vegetable matter and try to use whatever can be reused. Perhaps it would help to know what other gardeners do, but above all try to learn as you go; you see every garden is a tiny bit different from other gardens, so you need to observe your own growing garden to know what is better to do.
Some gardeners keep a record so that they know what is better to grow in their own garden, others just try to remember as much as possible, and this helps them decide what to grow next.

Remember this, just staying outside and gardening is a healthy lifestyle.

So, be healthy, wealthy and wise and start gardening; what I you waiting for?

Mother Nature challenge, help Planet Earth
Be healthy wealthy and wise

Next time with another helpful post
