Why a military adviser says climate change is threat to homeland security
Scientists in Colorado are publishing alarming new research about the storms of the future. Computer simulations show bigger, more frequent and more intense storms. These conclusions have now captured the attention of the United States military. A study by scientists at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), details how large, long-lasting storms called mesoscale convective systems -- which can be a cluster of thunderstorms over land or even a hurricane -- are likely to become more intense and more frequent by the end of the 21st century   Read More ...

This Little Girl Can't Contain Her Excitement While Experiencing Her First Snowfall
The cold never bothered her anyway. Parents pulled over in Irondale, Washington, during their drive home so their daughter could have her first experience with snow — and captured the adorable moment on video. While many are dreading impending winter weather, this little girl couldn’t have been more thrilled to wander around the street as the flurries fell down. Although there was just a dusting on the ground — not enough to make a snowman just yet, as neighbors pointed out — that didn’t stop her from jumping up and down as she squealed in delight, “It’s snowing!” The girl, bundled up in a polka-dotted jacket, also spent plenty of time tasting the newly fallen snow from the ground   Read More ...

Deer hunting limited in Colorado, Idaho, Oregon, Utah, Washington, Wyoming after tough winter
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Hunting guide Mike Clark normally has more than 20 clients lined up each fall for trips deep into Wyoming's western wilderness to shoot mule deer, prized by hunters for their size and impressive antlers. But unusually cold weather and heavy snowfall that blanketed much of the Western U.S. last winter killed off many young deer. And that prompted wildlife officials throughout the Rocky Mountain states to take measures such as reducing the number of hunting permits to try to help devastated wildlife populations rebound   Read More ...

Iceland's Largest Volcano Is Getting Restless
For being an island in the North Atlantic, Iceland has a lot of volcanoes. Some of them generate a lot of anxiety when they have the inevitable rumbles. An earthquake swarm at Katla or Hekla causes all sorts of media alarms to go off, which is surprising considering the last three eruptions in Iceland came from Barðarbunga (well, the Holuhraun field, in 2014-15), Grímsvötn (in) and Eyjafjallajökull (in )   Read More ...

Storms Generate Thunder, Lightning and...Antimatter?
In the skies above Japan, scientists have detected lightning triggering nuclear reactions. These new findings are clear evidence that thunderstorms are a natural source of radioactive isotopes on Earth. Thunderstorms are natural particle accelerators, capable of hurling electrons outward at nearly the speed of light. When these electrons strike atoms, they can generate gamma rays, the highest-energy form of light. Previous research suggested that gamma rays from lightning can have a variety of extraordinary effects, such as creating matter and antimatter   Read More ...
