“This alarmist interpretation is characterized by an inflated sense of urgency and cinematic tones. The public become disempowered because it's too big for them; and when it sounds like science fiction, there is an element of the unreal there."

“Just hours after the horrific earthquake and tsunami devastated coastal areas of Japan, global warming alarmists like the BBC are already injecting climate change propaganda into their coverage of the story, hastily exploiting the tragedy as a vehicle through which to push their increasingly desperate and discredited enviro-fascist agenda.
If you thought that climate change alarmists wouldn't be so insensitive as to build their warped argument on the bodies of freshly dead corpses, then think again."
So let’s begin by checking global temperatures. As seen in the above graph, the last two months (January & February) UAH Satellite data indicates that average global temperature anomaly has slipped into the negative band due to the La Niña effect. Temperatures are back to those of the seventies cooling. In Japan, is still in winter. Victims of these recent extreme events in Japan have to face snow and sub-zero temperatures, which is the reason India sent tons of blankets - to make our small relief contribution count! So what global warming are we talking about?

- Weather in April is so condusive and recommended for travel in Kerala.
- It may not be continuously raining for 9 days at a stretch. But evening thunder showers due to convective activity may develop and thunder clouds may give rainfall for 30 minutes to one hours. This may happen for one or two days. But will NOT be not continuous.
- There will be more sun shine and temperature will be HOT & HUMID. So some time you may feel sultry even in beach.

In early March 2011, over a period of just six days, the appearance of Australia’s Channel Country changed dramatically. Rainwater filled typically dry river channels throughout the region, particularly in southwestern Queensland.
The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite captured these images of southwestern Queensland and northeastern South Australia on March 2, 2011 (top), and March 8, 2011 (bottom). Both images use a combination of infrared and visible light to increase the contrast between water and land. Vegetation, even sparse vegetation, appears bright green. Clouds appear sky blue. Water varies in color from electric blue to navy. Bare ground appears pink-beige.
On March 2, water fills just a few channels and basins. Six days later, standing water is apparent throughout southwestern Queensland and northeastern South Australia. The largest expanses of water appear just north of the border between the two states.
Channel Country flooding is a fairly common occurrence at this time of year, but the summer of 2010–2011 proved to be one of Australia’s wettest on record, leading to extensive flooding. Agence France-Presse reported that Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology described average rainfall as 70 percent above normal. Topped only by precipitation received in 1973–1974, rainfall for 2010–2011 was the second-highest since recordkeeping began 111 years earlier. Meteorologists attributed the unusually heavy precipitation to La Niña weather patterns.
