Listening to Hurricane Sandy: Climate Change is Here

Listening to Hurricane Sandy: Climate Change is Here | Nature Animals humankind | Scoop.it
Hurricane Sandy was a massive and deadly storm, extending more than 1,000 miles, bringing huge waves and more than 13 feet of water to parts of New York City. In Manhattan, floods swept away cars and overflowed subway stations.

The Aftermath of Hurricane Sandy

The Aftermath of Hurricane Sandy | Nature Animals humankind | Scoop.it
After cutting a destructive path through the Caribbean, Hurricane Sandy caused extensive damage along the East Coast this week.

 

While the damage wasn't as bad as many feared it could have been, place and spatial context are especially important in assessing the impacts of a natural disaster.  This is a excellent collection of the many devastating images as a result of Hurricane Sandy.  To see some more local images, Rhode Island Department of Transportation put this collection together.

Lisa Fonseca's comment, November 6, 2012 10:18 PM
I am speechless, these images have just torn my heart. Here in Providence, Rhode Island listened to multiple people say "oh this storm was nothing" they apparently need to view these photos, to understand Sandy was a monster of a storm. Mother nature is powerful and she can do just about anything. I am so mind boggled by the images, roads completely torn apart I never knew this could happen from a hurricane. It really made me appreciate how safe I was but now seeing these images really makes me want to get out there and tell more people to look at what happened in NJ,CT,NYC, and other places around the coast. My next step now is to get a donation bin started to send over to those states in major need. This is sure another natural disaster to go down in history.
Jordan Zemanek's comment, October 3, 2013 11:11 PM
Just with the information given, I can see how much damage the storm actually caused. Flooding and high winds obviously don't go together well. Although some communities weren't hit as bad as previously anticipated, some areas were largely damaged and the money needed to rebuild will be tremendous.
Alaina Rahn's comment, October 4, 2013 10:14 AM
I think it is very sad. I didn't know it was that bad. Now that I see those pictures it makes me feel very bad for those people.

Compare Irene to Sandy

Compare Irene to Sandy | Nature Animals humankind | Scoop.it
Experts say Hurricane Sandy is wider and stronger than Hurricane Irene, which caused more than $15 billion in damage in 2011, and could rival the worst East Coast storm on record.

 

This is a quick visual comparison of remote sensing images that lets you slide to compare the superimposed images.

Live export disaster in Pakistan | Take action | Animals Australia

When they pulled this Australian sheep out of a bloody trench in Pakistan, he was still breathing. His fleece matted with blood and dirt — a reminder of the brutal mass slaughter he had lived through the night before. He was a victim of the largest live export disaster in history. His is a story the industry wishes we wouldn't tell you.

Whether consumers know it or not, a majority of the corn and soy consumed in the United States has been genetically modified. That technology could be soon making its way to animals. And as soon as the Food & Drug Administration signs off on it, that technology will make its way to USA animals.
Chinese scientists currently experimenting with more than 20 genetically engineered animals
