United States At War With Virus, Trump. New Updates Globally
Green Transportation: Citroën
Citroën has launched a new electric vehicle that's a tiny car and an enclosed scooter at the same time. It's called the ‘Ami’, a two-seater vehicle made for city transportation that's so small, it doesn't even require a license. Citroën's new EV is a tiny two-seater that only costs $22 a month.  Green Transportation: Citroën's EV That is, so long as you're at least 14 years old in France or 16 in other European countries. The automaker seems to have based it on the Ami One Concept it unveiled in 2019 with a few changes to its final design. Where is Citroen founded? Citroën is car manufacturer based in France. It was founded by André-Gustave Citroën in 1919 and it became the first mass-production car company outside the USA and pioneered the modern concept of creating a sales and services network that complements the motor car. Recommended:  Electric Car 2020: Solar Powered, Never Needs Charging Citroën's Ami One EV: Range It has a 5.5kWh battery under the floor that can run for 44 miles or 70 km on a single charge. You can simply plug the EV into any standard 220v outlet and wait three hours to fill its battery. You can also only drive up to 28 mph or 45 kmh. Yes, you can't replicate Fast and Furious stunts with it, and it doesn't have a lot of range, but the Ami was designed for city driving and narrow streets anyway. When did Citroën start developing electric vehicles? Citroën's history of electric production began in 1989 with the C15 C25 trucks. These formed the base of the inspiration for the first mass produced electric car AX Electrique in 1993. Since then a number of models including Saxo Electric, C-Zero and Berlingo Electric Van have been developed. Citroën has various purchasing options to choose from if you're interested. You can pay €20 (US$22) per month for a long-term rental of two years if you make an initial payment of €2,644 ($2,900), though you can also buy one outright for €6,000 ($6,600). In case you want to try it out first before buying, you'd also be able to rent one from the Free2Move car-sharing service in Europe for €0.26 (29 cents) per minute. {youtube}                                                  Green Transportation: Citroën's EV. Rent & Buy If You Dare Green Transportation: Citroën's EV Emi One Ready To Go Citroën will start accepting orders for the Ami on March 30th 2020 in France, followed by Spain, Italy, Belgium, Portugal and Germany a few months later.

Citroën has launched a new electric vehicle that's a tiny car and an enclosed scooter at the same time. It's called the ‘Ami’, a two-seater vehicle made for city transportation that's so small, it doesn't even require a license. Citroën's new EV is a tiny two-seater that only costs $22 a month.  Green Transportation: Citroën's EV That is, so long as you're at least 14 years old in France or 16 in other European countries. The automaker seems to have based it on the Ami One Concept it unveiled in 2019 with a few changes to its final design. Where is Citroen founded? Citroën is car manufacturer based in France. It was founded by André-Gustave Citroën in 1919 and it became the first mass-production car company outside the USA and pioneered the modern concept of creating a sales and services network that complements the motor car. Recommended:  Electric Car 2020: Solar Powered, Never Needs Charging Citroën's Ami One EV: Range It has a 5.5kWh battery under the floor that can run for 44 miles or 70 km on a single charge. You can simply plug the EV into any standard 220v outlet and wait three hours to fill its battery. You can also only drive up to 28 mph or 45 kmh. Yes, you can't replicate Fast and Furious stunts with it, and it doesn't have a lot of range, but the Ami was designed for city driving and narrow streets anyway. When did Citroën start developing electric vehicles? Citroën's history of electric production began in 1989 with the C15 C25 trucks. These formed the base of the inspiration for the first mass produced electric car AX Electrique in 1993. Since then a number of models including Saxo Electric, C-Zero and Berlingo Electric Van have been developed. Citroën has various purchasing options to choose from if you're interested. You can pay €20 (US$22) per month for a long-term rental of two years if you make an initial payment of €2,644 ($2,900), though you can also buy one outright for €6,000 ($6,600). In case you want to try it out first before buying, you'd also be able to rent one from the Free2Move car-sharing service in Europe for €0.26 (29 cents) per minute. {youtube}                                                  Green Transportation: Citroën's EV.

Ciara Monster Storm Hits The Netherlands: Climate Change?
It looks like the Dutch weather has decided to give us storms instead of snow this winter, something we are not happy about. Storm Ciara Battered The Netherlands: Gale Force 11 Recorded At The Coast February 9, 2020 Jump quickly to subject by clicking on: Storm Dennis, 15, 16 February 2020 Forecast Ciara, 10-02-2020 Ciara Effects On 09-02-2020 Ciara Monster Storm Hits The Netherlands   Forecast Ciara 10-02-2020 The aftermath of storm Ciara caused problems for morning commuters on Monday as strong winds continued to buffet the Netherlands. The KNMI weather bureau issued a code yellow weather warning for the entire country as the strong winds continued. Some flights using Rotterdam and Eindhoven airport have also been cancelled While rail services have largely returned to normal, there are still some problems and high speed train services remain disrupted because the track has been closed until after the winds have subsided The NS says travellers should check the website for details. The KNMI says the strong winds will continue throughout Monday and there will some heavy showers at times. Some 220 flights to and from Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport have been cancelled,. On Sunday some 200 flights did not go ahead because of the storm   Recommended: Storm Dennis, 15, 16 February 2020 Morning, 10-02-2020 Sun, showers and strong gusts of wind The aftermath of storm Ciara causes problems for morning commuters today as strong winds continued to buffet the Netherlands. Storm Ciara is over, but it is very turbulent today. At the sea there is a chance of gusts of wind up to 100 km / hour and there is a strong wind. Heavy gusts also occur inland. There is a mix of sun, clouds and showers. It will be 8-9 degrees. Tonight, heavy showers are on the program with heavy gusts of wind and a chance of winter precipitation. It is still turbulent tomorrow Rainfall is moving rapidly from west to east across the country. However, the showers this morning gradually decrease in number. The interior has to do with a lot of cloud fields. The sun can shine in the west. It is turbulent with a strong western wind in the interior and a strong to stormy wind in the coastal areas (7-8 Bft.). Inland there is a chance of heavy gusts of 75-90 km / hour, in the coastal areas of 85-100 km / hour. Afternoon, 10-02-2020 It is dry in many places. It is cloudy with more sunshine in the western provinces than in the interior. It will be 8-9 degrees. In the course of the afternoon it gets more cloudy from the southwest and showers enter the country. With these showers there is a chance of hail and thunder he west to southwest wind remains emphatically present and is often stormy at the sea (8 Bft.). In the interior, the wind is usually (fairly) strong, 5-6 Bft. The gusts of wind are temporarily less bright than in the morning, but can already increase to 90 km / hour in the southwest in the afternoon Tonight there are heavy showers over the country with thunderstorms, hail and later tonight inland also possibly wet snow. There is also a chance of heavy gusts of wind up to around 90 km / hour. Gusts of up to 100 km / h are possible on the west coast and in the Limburg hills Tonight, 10-02-2020 The number of showers is gradually decreasing and there are more clearings. Hail, thunderstorms and wet snow are still possible at the last showers in the interior. The minimum temperature is around 3 degrees. The westerly wind is mostly (fairly) powerful inland, 5-6 Bft. and stormy by the sea, 8 Bft. On the Wadden it can sometimes storm for a while (9 Bft.).   Ciara Effects On The 9th Of February 2020 The pier at IJmuiden was closed to walkers The Netherlands closes all five storm surge barriers as winds reach up to 110kph Some 252 flights to and from Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport were cancelled because of the strong winds The Netherlands closes all five storm surge barriers as winds reach up to 110kph Winds gusting at up to gale force 11 hit parts of the Dutch coast on Sunday afternoon as storm Ciara moved in from the Atlantic The KNMI issued a code orange weather warning for the entire country and the ANWB motoring organisation warned drivers not to use the roads unless necessary ‘We are getting a lot of reports about trees or branches that have been blown down,’ a spokesman said. The storm is due to reached its height between 6pm and midnight (09-02-2020) as it moves over the country from the coast Dozens of flights have been cancelled at Schiphol airport because of the strong winds. Dozens of people have gone to the airfield to watch the planes coming in to land, and local television station NH Nieuws has set up a webcam to record the landings KLM has also cancelled 178 flights scheduled for Monday There have also been problems on the railways. A train travelling from Eindhoven and Helmond ploughed into a tree which had fallen onto the track. No-one was injured and the passengers were all safely evacuated Fallen trees have caused problems on other tracks and the NS is urging passengers to check online for details. High speed services to Rotterdam and Breda have also been cancelled. The NS has also set up a live blog following incidents as they come in.   Ciara Monster Storm Hits The Netherlands According to the weather forecast, on Sunday, February 9, the first storm since August 2019 will plough its way through the Netherlands, with the gusts of wind especially leaving destruction in their path. When and where to expect the storm in the Netherlands Waddeneilandand – between 16:00 and 22:00 Groningen – between 20:00 and 23:00 Friesland – between 16:00 and 22:00 Drendthe – between 20:00 and 23:00 Noord-Holland – between 16:00 and 22:00 Flevoland – between 19:00 and 22:00 Overijssel – between 20:00 and 23:00 Gelderland – between 20:00 and 23:00 Utrecht – between 19:00 and 22:00 Zuid-Holland – between 19:00 and 22:00 Zeeland – between 19:00 and 22:00 Noord-Brabant – between 20:00 and 23:00 Limburg – between 21:00 and 01:00 Storm Hits The Netherlands: Prepare The British and German media are called it a ‘monster storm’ and people are advised to secure their garden ornaments, lawn chairs etc., shut their windows and stay indoors if possible. The storm, at wind force 9, will bluster in from the northwest of the country, bringing with it gusts of wind reaching 120 km/h on the coast. The storm is expected to hit around midday. How are hurricane names chosen? The system works differently depending on where the storm in question occurs. Hurricanes occurring in the Atlantic basin are named based upon six, alphabetized, 21-name lists (Q, U, X, Y and Z are all skipped). The lists cycle on a six-year rotation, so every seventh year, the process reverts back to the first list Ciara could even become a severe storm, meaning the average wind speed over 10 minutes is at least 90km/h, wind force 10. There is also a chance of extremely violent gusts of wind reaching around 130km/h. After hitting the coast, Ciara will travel inland. In the south, middle and east of the country, gusts of wind at speeds of 75km - 100km/h are expected. On the Wadden Islands, large parts of North-Holland and Friesland, in the west of Zeeland and South Holland and the northwestern part of Groningen, extremely strong gusts of wind at 100km to 120km/h are possible. {youtube}                                                                         Storm Ciara Forecast Monster Storm: Extreme Winds The gusts of wind are especially worrying, as these can lead to dangerous situations on the roads. It is quite possible that the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI) will issue a code orange, indicating dangerous or extreme weather. They’ll only do this 24 hours in advance, at the earliest. At the moment, the trees don’t have any leaves, which is lucky, as this will likely lessen the damage done by the storm. It is still possible, however, that trees may topple, branches may break and planes may have trouble taking off or landing. If trees break and fall onto the train tracks, we can expect delays or train cancellations – so be ready for the aftermath of Ciara. Why do storms get given names? Storms are given short, distinctive names to avoid confusion and streamline communications. Hurricane Ike (2008), the third costliest storm in United States history. Until the early 1950s, tropical storms and hurricanes were tracked by year and the order in which they occurred during that year. Recommended:  Coronavirus, Flu And Climate Change: Is There A Connection? The forecast doesn’t look much better for Sunday night, as although average wind speeds will decrease slightly, heavy rain showers, thunderstorms and extreme gusts of wind are expected. These gusts could reach 100km/h inland and possibly 120km - 130km/h locally. Are all storms named after females? Although the World Meteorological Organization now names hurricanes after men and women, storm names weren't always so equally divided by gender. From roughly 1953 to 1979, U.S. hurricanes and tropical storms were actually only named after women. Strong Winds Next Week: It Doesn’t Look Good Monday and Tuesday next week (February 10 & 11) don’t look good. The weather continues to be turbulent on Monday, with showers and heavy gusts of wind around 85km/h. Tuesday doesn’t look any better than Monday - in fact, it could even be worse. Recommended:  Climate Change: Cause Of The Next Global Economic Collapse The weather will continue to be turbulent with gusts reaching 80km/h, but the main difference with Monday is that significantly colder air will flow over the country. You can expect heavy winter showers during which the temperature drops to freezing point - brrr! MonsterStorms And Climate Change What is the largest hurricane ever recorded on Earth? With measured winds of 200 MPH, Hurricane Patricia became the strongest tropical cyclone ever recorded anywhere on Earth. Extreme weather gets a boost from climate change. Scientists are detecting a stronger link between the planet's warming and its changing weather patterns. Though it can be hard to pinpoint whether climate change intensified a particular weather event, the trajectory is clear — hotter heat waves, drier droughts, bigger storm surges and greater snowfall. Recommended:  Climate Strangest Weather: Solar, Wind, Water Extremes Climate Change: Heat And Drought The dangerous effects of heat waves, including death, occur as a result of both temperature and humidity — especially if those conditions persist for more than two days. With temperature records being smashed month after month, year after year, it's likely that human-caused global warming is making extreme heat events more frequent. Higher temperatures also boost evaporation, which dries out the soil in summer — intensifying drought over many areas. Storms And Floods As more evaporation leads to more moisture in the atmosphere, rainfall intensifies. For example, we now know that the rainfall from Hurricane Harvey was 15 percent more intense and three times as likely to occur due to human-induced climate change. We expect to see a higher frequency of Category 4 and 5 storms, also, as temperatures continue to rise. Recommended:  Climate Change And Flooding In Vietnam’s UNESCO Town Hoi An While scientists aren't certain about whether climate change has led to more hurricanes, they are confident that rising sea levels are leading to higher storm surges and more floods. Around half of sea-level rise since 1900 comes from the expansion of warming oceans, triggered by human-caused global warming. (Like all liquids, water generally expands as it heats up.) The rest of the rise comes from melting glaciers and ice sheets. Snow And Frigid Weather There is more moisture in a warmer atmosphere, which can lead to record snowfall. It may seem counterintuitive, but the increase in snowfall during winter storms may be linked to climate change. Remember, there is more moisture in the warmer atmosphere. So when the temperatures are below freezing, snowfall can break records. Recommended:  CO2 At Current Levels Will Cause A High Sea Rise: 16 Meters And scientists are studying a possible connection between a warming Arctic and cold spells in the eastern United States. The idea is that a rapidly warming Arctic can weaken the jet stream, allowing frigid polar air to travel farther south. Before you go!

A train travelling from Eindhoven and Helmond ploughed into a tree which had fallen onto the track. No-one was injured and the passengers were all safely evacuated Fallen trees have caused problems on other tracks and the NS is urging passengers to check online for details. High speed services to Rotterdam and Breda have also been cancelled. The NS has also set up a live blog following incidents as they come in.   Ciara Monster Storm Hits The Netherlands According to the weather forecast, on Sunday, February 9, the first storm since August 2019 will plough its way through the Netherlands, with the gusts of wind especially leaving destruction in their path. When and where to expect the storm in the Netherlands Waddeneilandand – between 16:00 and 22:00 Groningen – between 20:00 and 23:00 Friesland – between 16:00 and 22:00 Drendthe – between 20:00 and 23:00 Noord-Holland – between 16:00 and 22:00 Flevoland – between 19:00 and 22:00 Overijssel – between 20:00 and 23:00 Gelderland – between 20:00 and 23:00 Utrecht – between 19:00 and 22:00 Zuid-Holland – between 19:00 and 22:00 Zeeland – between 19:00 and 22:00 Noord-Brabant – between 20:00 and 23:00 Limburg – between 21:00 and 01:00 Storm Hits The Netherlands: Prepare The British and German media are called it a ‘monster storm’ and people are advised to secure their garden ornaments, lawn chairs etc., shut their windows and stay indoors if possible. The storm, at wind force 9, will bluster in from the northwest of the country, bringing with it gusts of wind reaching 120 km/h on the coast. The storm is expected to hit around midday. How are hurricane names chosen? The system works differently depending on where the storm in question occurs. Hurricanes occurring in the Atlantic basin are named based upon six, alphabetized, 21-name lists (Q, U, X, Y and Z are all skipped). The lists cycle on a six-year rotation, so every seventh year, the process reverts back to the first list Ciara could even become a severe storm, meaning the average wind speed over 10 minutes is at least 90km/h, wind force 10. There is also a chance of extremely violent gusts of wind reaching around 130km/h. After hitting the coast, Ciara will travel inland. In the south, middle and east of the country, gusts of wind at speeds of 75km - 100km/h are expected. On the Wadden Islands, large parts of North-Holland and Friesland, in the west of Zeeland and South Holland and the northwestern part of Groningen, extremely strong gusts of wind at 100km to 120km/h are possible. {youtube}                                                                         Storm Ciara Forecast Monster Storm: Extreme Winds The gusts of wind are especially worrying, as these can lead to dangerous situations on the roads. It is quite possible that the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI) will issue a code orange, indicating dangerous or extreme weather. They’ll only do this 24 hours in advance, at the earliest. At the moment, the trees don’t have any leaves, which is lucky, as this will likely lessen the damage done by the storm. It is still possible, however, that trees may topple, branches may break and planes may have trouble taking off or landing. If trees break and fall onto the train tracks, we can expect delays or train cancellations – so be ready for the aftermath of Ciara. Why do storms get given names? Storms are given short, distinctive names to avoid confusion and streamline communications. Hurricane Ike (2008), the third costliest storm in United States history. Until the early 1950s, tropical storms and hurricanes were tracked by year and the order in which they occurred during that year. Recommended:  Coronavirus, Flu And Climate Change: Is There A Connection? The forecast doesn’t look much better for Sunday night, as although average wind speeds will decrease slightly, heavy rain showers, thunderstorms and extreme gusts of wind are expected. These gusts could reach 100km/h inland and possibly 120km - 130km/h locally. Are all storms named after females? Although the World Meteorological Organization now names hurricanes after men and women, storm names weren't always so equally divided by gender. From roughly 1953 to 1979, U.S. hurricanes and tropical storms were actually only named after women. Strong Winds Next Week: It Doesn’t Look Good Monday and Tuesday next week (February 10 & 11) don’t look good. The weather continues to be turbulent on Monday, with showers and heavy gusts of wind around 85km/h. Tuesday doesn’t look any better than Monday - in fact, it could even be worse. Recommended:  Climate Change: Cause Of The Next Global Economic Collapse The weather will continue to be turbulent with gusts reaching 80km/h, but the main difference with Monday is that significantly colder air will flow over the country. You can expect heavy winter showers during which the temperature drops to freezing point - brrr! MonsterStorms And Climate Change What is the largest hurricane ever recorded on Earth? With measured winds of 200 MPH, Hurricane Patricia became the strongest tropical cyclone ever recorded anywhere on Earth. Extreme weather gets a boost from climate change. Scientists are detecting a stronger link between the planet's warming and its changing weather patterns. Though it can be hard to pinpoint whether climate change intensified a particular weather event, the trajectory is clear — hotter heat waves, drier droughts, bigger storm surges and greater snowfall. Recommended:  Climate Strangest Weather: Solar, Wind, Water Extremes Climate Change: Heat And Drought The dangerous effects of heat waves, including death, occur as a result of both temperature and humidity — especially if those conditions persist for more than two days. With temperature records being smashed month after month, year after year, it's likely that human-caused global warming is making extreme heat events more frequent. Higher temperatures also boost evaporation, which dries out the soil in summer — intensifying drought over many areas. Storms And Floods As more evaporation leads to more moisture in the atmosphere, rainfall intensifies. For example, we now know that the rainfall from Hurricane Harvey was 15 percent more intense and three times as likely to occur due to human-induced climate change. We expect to see a higher frequency of Category 4 and 5 storms, also, as temperatures continue to rise. Recommended:  Climate Change And Flooding In Vietnam’s UNESCO Town Hoi An While scientists aren't certain about whether climate change has led to more hurricanes, they are confident that rising sea levels are leading to higher storm surges and more floods. Around half of sea-level rise since 1900 comes from the expansion of warming oceans, triggered by human-caused global warming. (Like all liquids, water generally expands as it heats up.) The rest of the rise comes from melting glaciers and ice sheets. Snow And Frigid Weather There is more moisture in a warmer atmosphere, which can lead to record snowfall. It may seem counterintuitive, but the increase in snowfall during winter storms may be linked to climate change. Remember, there is more moisture in the warmer atmosphere. So when the temperatures are below freezing, snowfall can break records. Recommended:  CO2 At Current Levels Will Cause A High Sea Rise: 16 Meters And scientists are studying a possible connection between a warming Arctic and cold spells in the eastern United States. The idea is that a rapidly warming Arctic can weaken the jet stream, allowing frigid polar air to travel farther south. Before you go!

Ciara Monster Storm Hits The Netherlands: Climate Change?
Climate Change Stop, Store CO2, Add Phytoplankton By Whales?
Saving the whale is more important than planting trees when it comes to climate change, scientists argue. Whales lock carbon in their bodies and encourage the production of phytoplankton, which produce 50 per cent of the world's oxygen. Store CO2, Add Phytoplankton By Whales Saving the whale is more important than planting trees to combat climate change, scientists have found, as they capture vast amounts of carbon in their bodies before sinking to the bottom of the ocean. Environmental scientists have been working against the clock to find the best ways for humans to reduce our carbon footprint by taking measures to allow more greenhouse gases to be absorbed from the atmosphere. Whales And Planting Trees Planting trees has commonly been understood as one of the best ways to save the planet. While trees are important and forests referred to as ‘the lungs of the Earth’, new research from the (IMF) has found that one whale is worth more than thousands of trees when it comes to carbon absorption. What plants absorb the most co2? While oak is the genus with the most carbon-absorbing species, there are other notable deciduous trees that sequester carbon as well. The common horse-chestnut (Aesculus spp.), with its white spike of flowers and spiny fruits, is a good carbon absorber. Whales are currently under significant man-made threat, including ship strikes, entanglement in fishing nets, waterborne plastic waste, and noise pollution. Their population has been decimated over the last century from 5 million to 1.5 million. It is thought that without action, it could take more than 30 years to restore their population as they are still under siege from whalers and choking on plastic pollution. The mammals accumulate carbon in their bodies throughout their long lives, with some species living for up to 90 years, and then when they die they take that carbon to the bottom of the ocean, where it is stored for centuries. {youtube}                                                                        How Whales Change Climate                                             Climate Change Stop, Store CO2, Add Phytoplankton By Whales? Store CO2, Add Phytoplankton By Whales What is the purpose of phytoplankton? Phytoplankton are microscopic marine algae.  Phytoplankton is the base of several aquatic food webs. In a balanced ecosystem, they provide food for a wide range of sea creatures including whales, shrimp, snails, and jellyfish Each whale can lock almost 30,000 kilograms of carbon dioxide on average out of the atmosphere. A tree, meanwhile, absorbs only up to 21 kilograms of  carbon dioxide a year. As well as this, whales also support the production of phytoplankton, which contributes at least 50 per cent of all oxygen to the Earth’s atmosphere and captures as much carbon dioxide as 1.7 trillion trees, or four Amazon forests. Recommended:  Breaking: Did You Know, All You Read About CO2 Rise Is Half The Truth They do this as when they swim up to the surface from deep waters, their large bodies move nutrients up with them. Bringing nutrients to the surface increases the food source for the tiny but crucial organisms. Whales bring minerals up to the ocean surface through their vertical movement, called the 'whale pump', and through their migration across oceans, called the 'whale conveyor belt'. Increasing phytoplankton productivity by just 1 per cent would have the same effect as the sudden appearance of 2 billion mature trees, according to the study. Ralph Chami and Sena Oztosun from the IMF’s Institute for Capacity Development, along with professors from Duke University and the University of Notre Dame said increasing whale populations 'could lead to a breakthrough in the fight against climate change'. Recommended:  Climate Change Efforts On Reducing CO2 Why Not Recycle It? “Coordinating the economics of whale protection must rise to the top of the global community’s climate agenda,” they wrote. “Since the role of whales is irreplaceable in mitigating and building resilience to climate change, their survival should be integrated into the objectives of the 190 countries that in 2015 signed the Paris Agreement for combating climate risk.” What is the Paris agreement and why is it important? The Paris Agreement is a landmark environmental accord that was adopted by nearly every nation in 2015 to address climate change and its negative impacts. ... The agreement includes commitments from all major emitting countries to cut their climate-altering pollution and to strengthen those commitments over time. Recommended:  Climate Agreement Paris And The Denial Of President Trump The authors put the value of one animal at more than $2 million (£1.54m), taking into account the value of carbon sequestered over the whale’s lifetime as well as other economic contributions such as fishery enhancement and ecotourism. They recommended that governments compensate those causing the threats to the whale population if they stop doing so, a group that includes countries, businesses, and individuls. Before you go!
