I read this morning about warnings in the United States about a massive winter storm on the East Coast, even as we speak.
“The threat of a huge winter storm has prompted panic and preparations along the East Coast as the head of the National Weather Service said today that tens of millions of people could be effected.
In addition to those impacted by the snow, an additional seven million people could be impacted by ice and other dangerous conditions, NWS director Louis Uccellini said today.
‘You put all the ingredients together, you can get a storm like this and it’s happening in real time,” he said.
Residents in at least a half-dozen states are being warned to keep their travel plans light and prepare for potentially damaging winter weather starting early this weekend.’
While this is taking place in the Northern Hemisphere, in Central America we are heading towards a long, hot and dry drought. Many of our streams and rivers are completely dried up and more are expected to dry up as the dry season progresses. El Niño is covering the whole region under its dry wing.
Climate change is not a hoax anymore. We are seeing its effects around the globe. Yet few serious measures are being taken by our leaders to mitigate the environmental damages that are taking place. Will we ever learn that we live in a very fragile and vulnerable planet?
Please take all measures possible to protect your immediate environment. Good Day!
