Climate change - droughts and floods
Floods are causing a lot of damage + Droughts are causing a lot of damage!
These two extreme weather conditions will occur much more often!
Some scientists say that rapid climate shift, climate disruption,
climate shock, climate breakdown, climate failure, are better explaining words than the word climate change.
Coal fired power plants and nuclear power plants emit radiation + contaminate Earth's air!

The April 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico was the worst disaster Americans and all people on Earth have to deal with - the different evaporation rates, different color of ocean water in the Gulf, oil slick covering miles of sea floor, contamination of sea food.
The Gulf of Mexico has influenced Earth's climate for over 1 million years, but this man-made oil catastrophe has changed Earth's climate and with it the life of millions of humans.
Ongoing droughts in Texas have killed many of our very old oaks at B+S+B Nature Preserve.
But not only our preserve has problems - rising food prices will harm many humans!
We have been warning for over 25 years, that methane ice is a big threat for our climate.
Our research confirms that more and more methane ice is thawing, and is bubbling up in many lakes in Canada, Alaska, Siberia.
Methane was trapped there during the last ice age!!
Methane is 10 times more potent than CO2 in causing global warming -
Imagine ten times stronger isolation of heat inside the Earth's atmosphere!!
If all methane ice on Earth will become gas and goes into our sky, humans will need to invent new scales for storms, hurricanes, typhoons and flood surges.
Billions of living beings will die ....
The last decade was the warmest the Earth's weather stations have seen in 130 years of record-keeping.
The average water temperature worldwide was 62.6 degrees,
according to the National Climatic Data Center, the branch of the U.S. government that keeps world weather records. That was 1.1 degree higher than the 20th century average, and beat the previous high set in 1998 by a couple hundredths of a degree.
The coolest recorded ocean temperature was 59.3 degrees in December 1909.
The warm ocean temperatures are already harming threatened coral reefs, are melting Arctic sea ice and are helping hurricanes to strengthen.
The Gulf of Mexico, where warm water fuels hurricanes, has temperatures dancing far about normal. NASA's sea-sensors show that water in the Northern Hemisphere has been considerably warmer than normal.
The Mediterranean is about three degrees warmer than normal.
Higher temperatures rule in the Pacific and Indian Oceans.
The heat is most noticeable near the Arctic, where water temperatures are as much as 10 degrees above average. The tongues of warm water could help melt sea ice from below and even cause thawing of ice sheets on Greenland.
