Not enough people care enough about climate change. It's too remote, too removed from everyday life. Even those who acknowledge that its enormity often don’t see what it has to do with themselves personally. So maybe this will finally break through: The Weather Channel’s immersive climate change experience, which puts you deep inside an inexorably changed world. The latest in a series of roughly two-minute mixed reality segments that place meteorologists inside extreme weather events—you may remember this gripping look at storm surges from last fall—debuted Tuesday morning. While climate change peppers the channel's regular coverate, this is its most directly direct examination yet of its potential impact. And by far its most tangible. The report starts by placing meteorologist Jen Carfagnoin in the year 2100, where rising sea levels have left the city of Charleston broadly, perpetually flooded. It then cuts to present-day Norfolk, Virginia, home to the largest … [Read more...] about The Weather Channel Flooded Charleston to Make You Give a Damn

BRITAIN is set to bask in the glow of a bright Supermoon tonight - and this one will be called a "Snow Moon". But where in the UK will the Snow Moon be visible tonight and what is a Supermoon? Here's everything you need to know. What is the weather forecast for tonight? A bright start across Britain today will be wiped out by dreary cloud and heavy rain as Tuesday progresses. The latest weather forecasts say sunny spells up and down the country will make way for grey and damp conditions as a rain front sweeps in from the west. Northern Ireland and Western Scotland will be among the first hit by the downpours - before the wet weather makes its way south and eastwards later. Despite the grim weather picture today, temperatures will still widely hold up in the double figures - helping to fend off any wintry showers. The Met Office said of Tuesday's weather: "After a chilly start there will be sunny spells for many. "Dull, wet and windy weather will develop over Northern Ireland though, … [Read more...] about UK Supermoon weather forecast – where can you see the rare ‘snow moon’ tonight?
By Paul VoosenFeb. 14, 2019 , 9:30 AM Last month, as much of the United States shivered in Arctic cold, weather models predicted a seemingly implausible surge of balmy, springlike warmth. A week later, that unlikely forecast came true—testimony to the remarkable march of such models. Since the 1980s, they’ve added a new day of predictive power with each new decade. Today, the best forecasts run out to 10 days with real skill, leading meteorologists to wonder just how much further they can push useful forecasts. A new study suggests a humbling answer: another 4 or 5 days. In the regions of the world where most people live, the midlatitudes, “2 weeks is about right. It’s as close to be the ultimate limit as we can demonstrate,” says Fuqing Zhang, a meteorologist at Pennsylvania State University in State College who led the work, accepted for publication in the Journal of the Atmospheric Sciences. Forecasters must contend with the atmosphere’s … [Read more...] about How far out can we forecast the weather? Scientists have a new answer
Technical issues were enough to hit TSB with a brutal three-week outage in April last year. The damage from that event is well documented – an eightfold increase in customers choosing to bank elsewhere, a bill for compensation and repairs costing roughly £176m, and a chief executive who decided to walk. The events suffered by the bank did a great deal to highlight the potential damage that can be caused by a data outage, although we’ve seen other more malicious factors put companies at major risk. Ransomware has thrived on taking away a company’s ability to access the services it needs most unless the demands of cyber criminals are met – in 2017, WannaCry and NotPetya both halted vital operations for the likes of the NHS and shipping firm Maersk. Insider threats can also be problematic – sometimes employees may sabotage their own companies, as we saw with Tesla in June last year. But sometimes accidental events can be even more significant than this … [Read more...] about Flood, fire, even an earthquake: businesses must protect themselves against the event of a natural disaster
