Ex-Nasa scientist: 30 years on, world is failing 'miserably’ to address climate change

Ex-NASA scientist on failure to dedal with climate changeThirty years after a former Nasa scientist sounded the alarm for the general public about climate change and human activity, the expert issued a fresh warning that the world is failing “miserably” to deal with the worsening dangers.

While Donald Trump and many conservatives like to argue that climate change is a hoax, James Hansen, the 77-year-old former Nasa climate scientist, said in an interview at his home in New York that the relevant hoax today is perpetrated by those leaders claiming to be addressing the problem.

Harvard study : Trump's policy will result in 80,000 deaths

A new essay from two Harvard University scientists concluded that the Trump administration’s environmental policies could result in an additional 80,000 deaths per decade.

The research, from public health economist David Cutler and biostatistician Francesca Dominici, pointed specifically to the health impacts of the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) policies on air pollutants and toxic chemicals.

Dangerous mass of hot, humid air triggers heat advisories in Midwest, targets East

High heat and humidityA dangerous combo of high temperatures and high humidity has triggered excessive heat advisories and warnings in Chicago and St. Louis this Fathers' Day weekend as forecasters warn of blistering heat in northern tier states spreading to the East Coast by next week.

The National Weather Service forecasts hot and muggy conditions across much of the Southern and Central Plains, as well as the Midwest, over the next few days, with high humidity and afternoon highs generally ranging from the 90s to low 100s.

"This may increase the risk for heat exhaustion or stroke for susceptible individuals," the weather service warns.

Hundreds Flee Colorado, New Mexico Wildfires

COlorado and New Mexico wildfiresMassive wildfires in Colorado and New Mexico have torched thousands of acres and forced hundreds to evacuate their homes.

A blaze known as the 416 Fire in Colorado's La Plata County has burned 1,100 acres, US Forest Service spokesman Jim Mackensen told CNN on Saturday.
The fire, about 15 miles outside the town of Durango, is 0% contained and has forced the evacuations of 1,500 residents, Mackensen said. No structures have been destroyed, he added.

Hurricane Maria killed more than 4,600 people, not 64. That’s more than 70 times the official estimate.

Hurricane Maria killed 4,600 people, not 64

Hurricane Maria likely killed thousands of people across Puerto Rico last year, more than 70 times the official estimate, a Harvard study released Tuesday says.

Authorities in Puerto Rico placed the death toll at 64 after Maria roared through the island Sept. 20, destroying buildings and knocking out power to virtually the entire U.S. territory of more than 3 million people.

Researchers at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, however, surveyed more than 3,000 households on the battered island. By extrapolating those findings, researchers determined that at least 4,645 "excess deaths" occurred during the storm and the weeks that followed.

What Drove a Man to Set Himself on Fire in Brooklyn?

Why did a man turn himself on fire?

Sometime before dawn on April 14, David Buckel left his small brick house on the edge of Prospect Park in Brooklyn, pulling a shopping cart. He passed the magnolia tree in the garden, the stone sculptures he had made. Then instead of walking to work, as he usually did on Saturdays, he went into the park.

He turned onto the road that loops around the meadows and ball fields, and after less than a quarter of a mile, he veered onto the grass. The place he chose would surprise people later, when they came with flowers: It wasn’t a plaza or a spot where crowds gathered — just a stretch of patchy lawn on the shoulder of the road.

Irish Voters Set To Liberalize Abortion Laws In Landslide, Exit Poll Signals

Irish exit poll suggests abortion rights will pasasIreland’s abortion laws, anchored in the Eighth Amendment to the country’s constitution, are among the most restrictive in Europe, with abortion effectively outlawed in nearly all cases, including rape, incest or crisis pregnancies.

That could change. Irish voters cast ballots on Friday in a referendum to keep or repeal the Eighth Amendment. Repeal will mean that abortion will be made legal throughout the country.
