A series of destructive tornadoes ripped through Alabama and Georgia on Sunday, March 3, 2019, killing at least 23 people in Alabama’s Lee County. Unfortunately, the death toll is expected to rise. This is the deadliest Alabama tornado day since 2011 when more than 200 people were killed in Tuscaloosa-Birmingham tornado and the deadliest US tornado day since May 20, 2013 Newcastle-OKC-Moore tornado. During the entire 2018, tornadoes in the United States killed 10 people.

At least 15 structures were destroyed when a tornado hit Talbotton, Georgia on March 3, 2019, injuring at least 6 people. Another tornado hit Cairo, causing heavy damage just south of downtown. The tornadoes were a part of a series of destructive tornadoes across the South on March 3 in which at least 23 people lost their lives.
The slide has been associated with a period of heavy rainfall across the region, which has led to substantial damage, landslides expert Dave Petley said.
“There must be a strong suspicion here that this rockslope failure has been caused by cutting of the slope for the road,” Petley said. “As such, it is yet another example of inadequate highway engineering causing loss of infrastructure and serious, permanent environmental damage.
“It’s completely unnecessary.”
A 5.3 magnitude earthquake centered about 59 miles southwest of Grand Junction, Colo., was felt in communities across southeastern Utah early Monday.
SYLVAN LAKE, Alta. – Natural Resources Canada says there has been a 4.6 magnitude earthquake in central Alberta.

After heavy winter storms, the water level stands just two feet below the new spillway gates – will it work?
When the #CampFire occurred, one of the very best tools out there on the web for tracking progress of the fire came from Peter Hansen, at Chico State University. Now he has a new interactive tool he has shared with me for use in monitoring the level of Lake Oroville as it fills and approaches the top.

Environmental activist Michael Shellenberger explained to Fox News host Tucker Carlson that it’s not possible to shift the country’s grid completely to renewable energy.
“I was one of the founders of, sort of, the first Green New Deal back in 2003, 2007,” Shellenberger, the founder of Environmental Progress, began. “People don’t remember President Obama, we spent about $150 billion on renewables between 2009 and 2015, and we just kept encountering the same kind of problems.”
Move over wind farms. Step aside acres of solar panels. There’s a new renewable energy source coming down the pike, and it has the potential to put the others out of business. And, ironically, it’s the climate alarmists’ biggest demon. It’s carbon dioxide.
Carbon sequestration, as the process is called, removes CO2 from the atmosphere and turns it into a solid form, namely coal, in order to be able to store it safely back in the ground where it came from.

“The term ‘global warming’ confuses people because it triggers thoughts about warmth, and it sort of lends itself to misinterpretation when it also impacts the cold,” said Mike Hulme, a professor of human geography at the University of Cambridge whose work focuses on the way climate change is discussed in public and political conversations.
