Yeah, I agree about the sensationalist title. I didn't believe the first link I saw to it until I saw it in the Independent. Looks more than just the usual monsoon ramifications, though.



"The tragedy is huge and damages tremendous with vast tracts of land still submerged under tonnes of debris. The casualties must run into several hundreds," Vijay Bahuguna, the chief minister of Uttarakhand told reporters. One of his senior officials said the final death toll could be "shockingly huge". Many of those left struggling for their lives were tourists and Hindu pilgrims who flock to the mountains during the summer months to visit numerous shines. Among the worst hit areas were the pilgrimage towns of Kedarnath and Badrinath where homes, roads and even temples were washed away.

I believe that something has been altering the planets weather the last few years.

NOT HARP!

Hurricanes up the eastern seaboard into NYS and the NE in general......its not the norm.
How about Katrina......wow that was big and slow moving and strong.

I've been looking more and more into the actions happening in the deep oceans to suggest tectonic and geological changes happening beneath our feet. Heating of ocean currents...not at the surface water level, but deeper and drifting up. The oceans are the engine that run the entire planetary weather system.

I don't have enough yet to make a thread with coherent facts for everyone. At least not to my standard of it. Pheonix358, a member here, is who turned me this direction and it's been a wild ride, the deeper I get into it. Vast tracts of data are just gone or changed. I'm still trying to hunt down hardcopy on good old fashioned treeware across the nation in libraries to get at the 1980's and 1990's data for a clear picture of trending lines and what's really happening out there....but even that is largely gone now.

Look deep and look down is all I can say. It's a real complex thing ...and God help us all if the engine that is our ocean ecosystem is sputtering. Nothing else on this planet will.

These disasters all over the world are going to be getting more frequent as the years go on. This climate change is not something that is going to be over in a short time. We screwed up worldwide. It will effect all humans around the globe. It is not limited to the countries that are committing the pollution. If you change the chemistry of the sea too much, it lowers it's ability to produce food a long way away. The Ecosystem is delicate but it is big and it does buffer the pollution till the pollution everywhere gets to a certain level. Then our worldwide foodchain is jeopardized.

We messed up royally, I do not see an easy life for anyone in the future, now we have to struggle to survive. Soon everyone will have to work twelve hours a day every day of the year just to survive.

Another fact to think about is the salinity of the ocean. The polar caps are melting faster and faster every day, dropping thousands of gallons of water into the oceans. When you change the balance of salt suspended in the oceans you also change the rates at which heat energy is absorbed and released from the water.

Woah man, that's heavy......you had to go and say that and open my eyes to another fact.

It certainly does explain the slavery.

Everything on this planet is tied together. For every action, an equal and opposite reaction occurs. If we contribute to the climate changing, this can contribute to changes of weight distribution of the planet which can contribute to plate tectonic and volcanic changes. Wrabbit's info above can have possible ties to the actions of mankind. Only a fool would not believe that our actions,with all the technology and equipment and weaponry we have at our disposal, is not geo-effective.

We are in a bubble, whatever happens in the bubble effects everything else in the bubble.

There are a few astonishing videos on YT. Also contact numbers for volunteers.

This is a Himalayan tsunami. A lot of rain and landslides is not a tsunami.

They prolly wrote Tsunami to describe the scale of the flooding in the region..rather than the technical meaning of it

Signalfire was accurate in what they said as the Independant newspaper headline was..

"50,000 trapped by flooding and landslides in 'Himalayan tsunami''

It just goes to show the level of ''poor'' journalist whom create this sensationalist rubbish.

Regarding the actual story.... A terrible situation to all those people in that area, I agree the worlds weather seems a little more fractious with us at the moment..

You could call it Himalyan Girl Scout Retreat, it wouldn't matter. The videos are brutal. Mother Nature wins.

Phage, as much as I usually enjoy you candor and intellect, your response here seemed more like comic relief. 2012 was a great movie, the monk/tsunami was actually visually stunning. I just don't think it was appropriately used here.

I extend no disrespect. Quite the contrary, I'm just used to more finesse from you.
