Police say an American tourist drowned after a giant wave swept him and two others away in southern Baja California. The U.S. Embassy confirmed that Richard Harry Barr, 72, from Fort Smith, Arkansas, drowned in Cabo San Lucas on Tuesday. State police investigator Enrique Wilar says the two other people managed to swim to shore. Wilar said the three were taking a walk on a beach when they were swept away. The surf was unusually rough from the effects of Tropical Depression Karina. On the same stretch of beach two years ago, a giant wave swept away and killed an American tourist.)

Oceanographers believe that an undersea earthquake, followed by a mudslide, in the Atlantic caused the mini-tsunami that damaged factory buildings on the South African west coast recently. The South African National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) says hydrographic readings from Cape Town, Port Nolloth, Luederitz and Walvis Bay show evidence of seismic activity on the night of Wednesday, August 20. "All activity had ceased by the following day, indicative of the most likely origin being an undersea earthquake resulting in an undersea mudslide," an NSRI statement reads. "The Port Nolloth hydrographic monitor shows the most extreme variance." The NSRI was alerted to a sudden change in sea level at a number of places along the west coast on August 21. Witness reports indicated three sudden tide changes in a matter of six hours. NSRI's spokesperson Craig Lambinon told The Namibian that the surge was minor, but it dragged a car into the sea and caused damage to factories at St Helena Bay. Oceanographer Professor Geoff Brundrit, Chairman of the Global Ocean Observing System, initially said there could be three causes of the surge - a mid-ocean earthquake, a mid-ocean slump (similar to a mudslide), or extreme thunderstorms. Brundrit later said hydrographic monitoring equipment at Walvis Bay showed considerable activity over three days. This could only point to seismic activity - and earthquake - in the Atlantic Ocean, the NSRI statement said.
This winter, temperatures in Iran were much warmer than in previous years, to the point that people sought out the shade to protect themselves from getting sunburns. It’s really amazing how warm this past winter has been. People have even begun to turn on their air conditioners in some cities, which they had never before used at this time of the year. The warming has been compounded by the drought, which is worse than last year’s. Water flows in some of Iran’s rivers are slowing down, the mountain snow is melting like heated butter, many wells have run dry, and farmers are despondent. Pictures posted on the Mehr News Agency website on February 20 showed that the Zayand-e-Rud River, an important river that passes through the beautiful city of Isfahan, has run dry. The current drought, which is probably due to global warming, has made Iran one of the world’s leading importers of wheat over the past year. Scientists say carbon emissions are responsible for climate change. However, this warning has not been taken seriously by many of the world’s most important decision-makers. )
Signs of global warming in Iran
TEHRAN, Mar. 17 (MNA) -- This winter, temperatures in Iran were much warmer than in previous years, to the point that people sought out the shade to protect themselves from getting sunburns.

These were from our backyard. A little bit later I got a call from my brother. He lives in Schenectady near Central Park. He said they had no hail, yet when they drove up to Mohawk Commons, this is what they saw!
That’s a LOT of hail! At least we didn’t have to shovel, like they did in New Jersey!
As mentioned yesterday, Thursday's record-breaking rainfall for a single June day (2.3 inches) puts NYC within striking distance of breaking 2003's record June rainfall of 10.23 inches—and we've got almost two weeks to go....
While we have that "woe is me and my rainy June" attitude, to be fair, at least we didn't get socked with 4.5 inches of rain yesterday the way Chicago did (crazy video included).
Yesterday's storms were impressive, both visually and statistically. Besides the impressive display for the eyes, the storms smashed the city's single-day rain record for June 19 with 3.97 inches of rain falling at O'Hare, also good enough for the third wettest June day ever and the city's twelfth wettest day ever overall. Of course, that was just at O'Hare. As WGN Weather reports, well over 4.5 inches of rain fell on the Northwest Side.

Hunters from Wainwright first started noticing the stuff sometime probably early last week. It's thick and dark and "gooey" and is drifting for miles in the cold Arctic waters, according to Gordon Brower with the North Slope Borough's Planning and Community Services Department....
Steve Pendlebury AOL News wrote:(July 17) -- Dark blobs are lurking in the sea off Alaska's North Slope.
What sounds like a sci-fi movie was a real mystery. Scientists, initially puzzled, have figured out what the floating goo is. But they still don't know why it's there.
Hunters and fishermen became concerned when they spotted the stuff last week. Gordon Brower was among the local officials who went out to take a look. They all returned baffled. No one had ever seen anything like it....
