Raining season or flood season? Hope everyone is safe down there

Things are getting from bad to worse! Stay safe everyone…

I wish the residents the best of luck and a safe ending. It is good to see a solid, factual article about weather that did not trot out the global warming theme/hype that seems to be mandatory with any occurrence of heavy weather.

So you want facts but not the type that makes you uncomfortable?

Yeah, wishing and hoping that it will all be okay seems about all some people are prepared to do.

@Droll Quarry climate change make you uncomfortable?

My post was on topic, it was the over use of coal which has led to climate change, and subsequent weather events like this and more to follow.

It is indeed true our burgeoning population, as a result of abundant energy, has significantly changed this Planets weather patterns, with droughts and flooding rains, fires and polar vortex.

More rain in the same region as lives were lost is indeed tragic, are the mudslides also due to tree loss for solar plant ?

Mudslides are not caused by the land being converted to solar farms as they are generally built on flat terrain.

Fast growing cedar trees with poor root hold are one reason and also lack of investment in rural areas with low populations in repairing and upgrading infrastructure is another.

Excessive rainfall ( also droughts and extreme temps) which is being caused by global warming is going to exacerbated these problems.

Why developed country like Japan still has these flood problem. Can't they just build the blockage or strong fence or anything to avoid the flood. Aren't they fed up with these weather problems every year? Why not stop giving aid to other proudy developing countries and make yourself better for your own people?
