Hello ATS. Here's a little Doom-Porn for ya. The Vermillion River in Ohio is seriously flooding and residents are preparing to flee. Here's a short video:

I got the embed code for the video so hopefully, it works.

Doom Porn! Gotta love it!

I grew up on the banks of the Brazos. I've seen a couple of destructive floods.
Cars underwater. Houses destroyed.
Water always finds the level.

Destruction of property = Doom

Mostly doom porn for the sorry folks living along that river. I suppose with the massive amounts of snow in the northeast, they should probably see a lot of this as well.

Hearing this from anyone else besides you, Phage and I'd be offended. However, since it's you I'll just say that the Doom is in what this means in relation to the current impact(s) of Global Warming/Climate Change: Ice caps melting, islands being swallowed by the ocean coupled with the weirdness in the oceans and situations such as this raise alarm bells. Well, maybe not that extreme yet but it's all related.

Your comments in your OP do not command any respect.


I second that. OP, ever hear of inapproprate affect?

Canadians too are facing flooding as snows melt. Here's hoping no homes are lost and no lives ruined. It can sometimes take years to recover.

Perhaps. But in this case, perhaps not.
I know the planet is warming. Whether this is related...no way to know. Rivers are known to do that. Forever.

Yes Rez, but you of all people know that this probably isn't an isolated event in relation to our warming environment. There's weirdness in the oceans........what's with all of the giant fish being caught in recent times? Sea Lions beaching themselves in record numbers and such? Viruses on the attack? We should watch this carefully.

Why? I'm not making light of the people's misfortune.

Sure you are...you even said (with gleeful exclamation point)..."Gotta love it!".
Finding "fun" in the misfortunes of others is sick, insensitive, delusional, crass and a whole other buncha' words that are inappropriate for me as a member to call your OP.

Most of us aren't like you. I hope you friend... find that "LOSTBOOK"....and READ it. Your "glee" at posting this is appalling.

Haven't people been catching giant fish for....thousands of years, catching viruses for thousands of years, witnessing strange events like mass die offs for thousands of years? I don't see how this is more "weird" than any other time in history.

It's melting snow pack causing the rise in the river, we had an exceptional amount of snow lately. We're plenty high enough above sea levels not to have to worry about rising seas. However, like most over-developed river systems in the US, the 'flood plains' which routinely allowed excess water to be dissipated in the Spring have been eliminated, or developed, with embankments raised to keep the river contained. This causes greater chances of flooding, especially down river. Last week we were at negative temperatures, now we're looking at mid-50's. All that snows melting real fast.

My apologies if I offended you. My comment was meant to throw sarcasm at the naysayers who don't think climate change/global warming is real. I see that it had the opposite effect. It's not funny and it concerns me very much, otherwise, I wouldn't have this post to begin with.

I can sympathize with these folks. I know that in 2011, and 2013 our local river flooded. The occurrence in 2011 they called a "200 year flood". No one in living memory had ever seen anything like it. Our house was alright but many of our neighbors were not so lucky. We evacuated three times in two months that year. It was awful. The second time was due to ice jams.

I do think that the OP is a bit quick to attribute these flooding events to global warming. Rivers flood. There is a cycle. Even the first local flood that surprised so many people had occurred at that level before, many times even. People hadn't seen or at least, recorded it, but it was in the local geological record. It was a wet year; a lot of snow pack that melted coupled with a lot of spring rain. It was catastrophic locally in the end. Maybe global warming... Maybe not.

The second flood in 2013 was due directly to environmentally driven new policies. They used to break up those ice jams when the river froze hard but environmentalists lobbied to stop that. So... The river flooded, hundreds of thousands of dollars in property damage and human lives risked just to save a few hundred fish (if that).

Sometimes environmentalists make these problems and than blame other people for "climate change" and say that is causing it. It doesn't look like that is what is going on in Ohio, but for one of these floods that is what happened here.

Understood. Thank you for clarifying that. Best MS

I seriously think for threads specifically like this there aught to be in place a no brainer one line answer.
STATING THE BLOODY OBVIOUS.
If you live by a river sooner or later you WILL be flooded. It's sure unfortunate for those it happens to but they chose to live by a river. They are full of gushing praise of living by a river in the summertime. Go figure.
Now a question would be, would you build your house on the flanks of an active volcano and then complain about the lava?
