Intense Floods Sweep Through Maryland and Delaware VIDEO

Severe Flash Flood Hits Maryland/Delaware Over the Weekend

Unbelievable video shot by Dave Arditti during Saturday night’s flash flood in Northern Maryland. Watch as he and several other men rescue a woman from her car floating down Main St right in front of  their family business, Still Life Gallery, located in Ellicott City, MD. at about 8:30pm July 30th. Dave was the one at the top of the human chain holding onto the next man’s hand while filming with the other.

“The man who got washed away was incredibly lucky to make it” Said Sara Arditti 

The historic storm struck hardest just north-west of Baltimore County. Very close to home with over 5 inches of rain falling where I live in Salisbury,Md. In other areas thunderstorms dropped 8-9 inches of rain in under 3 hours, resulting in massive flash flooding; “another thousand-year flood.” People from all over the South and South East of America have experienced similar floods recently. A 1.5 °F warmer atmosphere may not sound like much, but it means there’s 6 percent more water overhead, and that is more fuel for extreme summer rains like this one.

Ever heard of a rain bomb? Also known as a microburst? Nope? Nah, me neither! Rain bombs are a rare weather phenomenon where hot, dry air rises and mixes with heavy rain-bearing clouds. The hot air then evaporates the water droplets in the cloud, causing a swift cooling of the air around them, which starts to sink. The descending cool air pulls the remaining raindrops with it, creating the mother of all downpours.


The massive burst of precipitation sent a wave of floodwaters cascading down the hillsides in the historic downtown area where it turned into a wall of water smashing it’s way through Main Street, sweeping cars, trees, signs all downhill, sending restaurant-goers scurrying for higher ground and carving away the road and sidewalks, leaving behind debris and massive sinkholes.

Two people in cars that were swept away died in the floods, according to officials in Baltimore County, where their bodies were found nearly two miles down the Patapsco River.

Records are not kept for rainfall in Ellicott City specifically, though residents used to moderate flooding events said this one was the worst in recent memory. The last major flood to hit Ellicott City was in 2011, and this one was about 3 feet higher, said Jason Elliott, a hydrologist with the National Weather Service’s Baltimore/Washington forecast office. These extreme rain events are way up over the last 50 years across the Northeast U.S. and the fact that the oceans are the warmest on record is not something to over look. The warmer ocean temperatures are “an obvious factor” according to on air meteorologist Dan Satterfield

1 in 1,000 Year Rainfall Event. So says NOAA;  with nearly 6″ of rain falling in 90 minutes, rainfall totals approaching 10″ north and west of Baltimore Saturday night.

Based on records for a gauge five miles away in Woodstock, there is a less than 0.1 percent chance of such intense rainfall happening in any given year, Elliott said — making this a once-in-1,000-years storm.

“We were in an extremely moist air mass leading up to this, and to some extent, still are,” Elliott said. “Every bit of moisture there was to wring out of the atmosphere after this heat wave we’ve had all came out mainly over that one hour.”

The difference for Ellicott City was that it was caught in an area where, as one storm system moved off to the east, another developed right behind it. Other parts of the region saw a single 30- or 45-minute burst of heavy rain, instead, Elliott said.

The storm also stacks up with record-breaking rainfall events around the region in recent years.

Warming Waters. So far we haven’t seen a significant uptick in hurricanes in the Atlantic basin, but the Pacific (bigger and even warmer) has seen record numbers of extreme category 5 hurricanes and typhoons in recent years. Graphics above: Climate Central.

Conditions may be ripe for a future Tropical Storm Earl, currently aimed at Mexico’s Yucatan.

Oregon school board bans books that question climate change

Oregon school-board bans books that question climate change – Nazi-Style Censorship.

 The Portland Public Schools board unanimously approved a resolution this week that bans textbooks and other teaching materials that deny climate change exists or cast doubt on whether humans are to blame.

The resolution, introduced by school board member Mike Rosen, also directs the superintendent and staff to develop a plan for offering “curriculum and educational opportunities that address climate change and climate justice” in all Portland public schools, the Portland Tribune reported.

In a move spearheaded by environmentalists, the Portland Public Schools board unanimously approved a resolution aimed at eliminating doubt of climate change and its causes in schools.

“It is unacceptable that we have textbooks in our schools that spread doubt about the human causes and urgency of the crisis,” said Lincoln High School student Gaby Lemieux in board testimony. “Climate education is not a niche or a specialization, it is the minimum requirement for my generation to be successful in our changing world.”

The resolution passed Tuesday evening calls for the school district to get rid of textbooks or other materials that cast doubt on whether climate change is occurring and that the activity of human beings is responsible. The resolution also directs the superintendent and staff to develop an implementation plan for “curriculum and educational opportunities that address climate change and climate justice in all Portland Public Schools.”

“It is unacceptable that we have textbooks in our schools that spread doubt about the human causes and urgency of the crisis,” Lincoln High School student Gaby Lemieux said during board testimony Tuesday. “Climate education is not a niche or a specialization, it is the minimum requirement for my generation to be successful in our changing world.”


Bill Bigelow, editor of the ReThinking Schools online magazine and co-author of a textbook on environmental education, worked with several environmental groups to present the resolution, the Tribune reported.

“A lot of the text materials are kind of thick with the language of doubt, and obviously the science says otherwise,” Mr. Bigelow said. “We don’t want kids in Portland learning material courtesy of the fossil fuel industry.”

He took particular issue with teaching materials that used iffy language when discussing climate change, like “might,” “may” and “could.”

Asked if the resolution will force the district to buy new textbooks, such as his book, “A People’s Curriculum for the Earth,” Mr. Bigelow said ReThinking Schools is a nonprofit, not a money-maker, the Tribune reported.

“What we’re asking for is not: Buy new stuff,” he said. “What we’re looking for is a whole different model of curriculum development and distribution.”

NASA Says Antarctic Ice Growing – What Does It Mean?

“A new NASA study says that an increase in Antarctic snow accumulation that began 10,000 years ago is currently adding enough ice to the continent to outweigh the increased losses from its thinning glaciers.

The research challenges the conclusions of other studies, including the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) 2013 report, which says that Antarctica is overall losing land ice. (more…)

Mad Scientists: NASA ‘accidentally’ Drains the Van Allen Belts

[This report was put together by the YouTube channel owner, Dutchinse]

It appears that NASA actually DRAINED one of the protective Van Allen Radiation belts surrounding Earth.

This experiment was done, and was successful. No doubt, this could easily cause “climate change” , since the Van Allen Belts protect us from solar radiation , high electron voltage. (more…)
