Bollywood called to arms against climate change

Rajendra Pachauri, Chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), addresses a press conference in Berlin on April 13, 2014Bollywood's glitterati on Thursday heard an appeal to use their star power to fight climate change as they opened their first awards ceremony in the United States. Bringing a somber note in the midst of Bollywood's trademark festive dancing, Rajendra Pachauri, the Indian scientist who leads the Nobel Prize-winning UN climate panel, took the stage in Tampa, Florida, to urge stars to channel their influence for the planet. "We are all residents of spaceship Earth and anything we do — anything that happens on that spaceship — has implications for everybody else," said Pachauri, who was invited to Bollywood's annual awards extravaganza as a special guest. "What I would like to urge all the stars who are here is to see that they associate themselves with the larger problems that humanity, and all living species of the world, face," he told Bollywood celebrities assembled in a heavily air conditioned hotel ballroom.

Moving to a tornado-prone area? Five questions to ask to help you reduce risk

While a region of the Great Plains from northern Texas up through South Dakota has earned the moniker “Tornado Alley,” a quick look at National Weather Service tornado-track maps reveals most of the eastern half of the US to be tornado central. Current US model building codes do not include standards for tornadoes or the wind-borne debris they kick up, according to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). These winds can reach speeds of more than 100 miles an hour and can inflict significant damage that sometimes is mistaken for tornado damage. But such wind-resistant features “are not always easy to see,” acknowledges Greg Carbin, warning-coordination meteorologist at the National Weather Service’s Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Okla. But they are important.

Coral Species May Adapt to Warmer Waters (Video)

Coral reefs tend to be vulnerable to damage from warmer waters, but at least one coral species may be able to adapt to the higher ocean temperatures that may come with climate change. This shows that corals that live in warmer waters do develop a better ability than cooler-water corals to survive rising temperatures — a sign that corals can adapt over time to a changing environment, according to the researchers. “We found that [all] these coral colonies can adjust their physiology to become more heat-tolerant,” said study author Stephen Palumbi, a professor at Stanford University. “They [corals] do even better after they adjust their physiology if they have the right genes, but even if they don’t have the right genes, their physiological adjustment gets them a nice bump in heat tolerance,” Palumbi told Live Science.

Losing Another Decade

“We cannot afford to lose another decade.” My God. There’s more darkness in this quote than the New York Times intended. I winced when I read these words of Ottmar Edenhofer, co-chairman of the committee that wrote the latest United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report, which the Times quoted in a recent editorial headlined “Running Out of Time.” Suddenly, ten years felt vital, alive with possibility. …

Forecasters Are Already Predicting a Massive Tornado Outbreak This Weekend

Forecasters Are Already Predicting a Massive Tornado Outbreak This WeekendSpring 2014 has been a quiet tornado season thus far, but that's about to change this weekend, if the predicted forecasts that meteorologists are looking at hold true. Weather experts say conditions are lining up for a series of powerful tornadoes to hit an area ranging between Tennessee and Texas from Saturday through Monday. That will cause the creation of supercell thunderstorms, Slate's Eric Holthaus explains, all kept in place in the South-Southwest by a high-pressure system in Canada. That makes the area ripe for a "big severe threat" this weekend, according to The Weather Channel, an extra level on top of today's "severe threat." That includes the April 26, 1991, stretch of tornadoes from Texas to Iowa that caused a billion dollars in damage and included a rare F5-strength tornado.
