Heatwave Scorches Europe, From London To Siberia

Posted by addisethiopia on June 21, 2017

My Note: The State of Arizona — where SAUD agent canny CAIN McCain rules as a Senatorcould break scorching temperature records this summer.

These four eerie photos were taken by a friend – during the annual Ethiopian Feast of The Cross, Meskel, with its Damera – at a private lighting of torches on the eve, 27 Sep 2016.

Europe sizzled in a continent-wide heatwave on Wednesday, with London bracing for Britain’s hottest June day since 1976 as Portugal battled to stamp out deadly forest fires.

More than 1,000 firefighters were still fighting to control the flames that broke out in central Portugal at the weekend, killing 64 people.

Cooler weather was aiding their efforts, but thermometers were still hovering around 35 degrees Celsius (95 degrees Fahrenheit) — a level matched across oven-like swathes of Europe, including Italy, Austria, the Netherlands and even alpine Switzerland.

Two forest fires have also broken out since Sunday on Croatia’s southern Adriatic coast, prompting the authorities to evacuate 800 tourists, though the blazes have now been brought under control.

We were scared, it’s true,” a Swedish tourist who gave her name only as Karolina told local media. “From the hotel room window it seemed like the fire was at our doors.”

As the northern hemisphere marked the summer solstice, firefighters were on alert in Austria, where revellers were due to celebrate the longest day of the year by lighting bonfires for the festival of Saint John.

In Italy, forecasters say the current heatwave could turn out to be the most intense in 15 years, with temperatures around eight degrees above the seasonal average — 39 degrees Celsius in Milan and up to 30 in the Alps at an altitude of 1,000 metres (3,300 feet).

A study released Monday warned that deadly heatwaves will become more and more common around the world even if the rise in temperatures is capped at 2.0 degrees Celsius as targeted by the Paris Agreement to combat climate change.

Even if we outperform the Paris targets, the population exposed to deadly heat will be about 50 percent by 2100,” Camilo Mora, lead author of the study published in the journal Nature Climate Change, told AFP. 

London sizzles –

Britain was set to see its first five-day stretch of temperatures over 30 degrees in June since 1995. The thermometer was forecast to hit 34 Celsius in west London, a record for the month since 1976.

In Guildford, southwest of the capital, a road surface melted on Tuesday, with motorists likening it to a bar of chocolate left out in the hot sun.

At the prestigious Royal Ascot horse races, organisers said they were considering relaxing the strict dress code for the first time.

And a thunderstorm was looming over the Glastonbury Music Festival, threatening mud just as an expected 200,000 revellers begin pitching their tents. 

Music lovers in France were also braving the heat, as the annual Fete de la Musique — a nationwide celebration with thousands of free street performances — kicked off under an official heatwave declared across many areas of the country.

The national postal service announced that its postmen would be calling on elderly and disabled residents living alone to check they were alright, with temperatures due to hit 37 Celsius in Paris.

A peak in pollution linked to the heat prompted police in the Paris region to reduce speed limits in some areas and divert heavy goods trucks, with the most polluting vehicles banned from the capital on Thursday. 

On Tuesday, the body of a 31-year-old man was pulled out of the Loire river in the central city of Tours after he got dragged down by the current while trying to cool down.

In Russia, Siberia was also suffering a heatwave, with temperatures of up to 37 Celsius in the city of Krasnoyarsk, Channel One television reported.

But at the other extreme, it was just one degree Celsius and snowing in Murmansk in northern Russia, the RIA Novosti news agency reported. Many residents are having to get by with no heating in their flats as centralised systems have been switched off for the summer.

The Source For 70 Per Cent Of The World’s Coffee Consumption Could Be Extinct By The End Of This Century

Posted by addisethiopia on June 21, 2017

A study conducted by scientists in Ethiopia and London, U.K. reports that wild Arabica coffee could be extinct in 70 years due to the effects of climate change

Savoured by coffee drinkers around the world, Coffea arabica is a species of coffee indigenous to the highlands of Ethiopia. It is the source for  70 per cent of global coffee consumption. A new study reports that its very existence is under threat due to the effects of climate change.

Scientists at London’s Kew Gardens, in collaboration with colleagues in Ethiopia, report a grim forecast for the bean if action isn’t taken. In a new study, they say that wild Arabica (Coffea arabica) could be extinct by 2080.

In Ethiopia and all over the world really, if we do nothing there will be less coffee, it will probably taste worse and will cost more,” Dr. Aaron Davis, one of the report’s authors and coffee researcher, told the BBC.

The East African nation is home to many unique varieties of wild coffee. It’s this genetic diversity that is critical to the sustainability of the industry, according to a statement from Kew. The researchers emphasize that the situation is avoidable, recommending actions such as forest conservation and replanting, and the relocation of coffee-producing areas.

There is the potential to mitigate some of the negatives and actually increase the coffee-growing area by four-and-a-half-times compared with maintaining the status quo,” Dr. Davis told the BBC.

Coffee is essential to the livelihoods of 16 per cent of Ethiopia’s population. Parts of the country are already experiencing the effects of climate change; an extended drought in the east that has resulted in crop failure and millions of people requiring emergency food assistance.

A ‘business as usual’ approach would be disastrous for the Ethiopian coffee economy in the long-term,” Kew’s Justin Moat, another of the paper’s authors, told the BBC.

My Note: Covfefe is in the air – and The tribe of SAUD is changing the climate – everything related to the Arabs will be extinct by the end of this Century. So, why not rename the so-called ‘Coffee Arabica’ into Coffee Ethiopica!? Dosen’t it make sense?

— Coffee = ካፊር? | እስካሁን በተለምዶ የምናውቀውን የቡና አመጣጥ ታሪክ ከልሰን በጭንቅላቱ መገልበጥ ሊኖርብን ነው

አl Sharpton’s NAN Calls On Arab Shopkeepers In Charleston To Leave America – He Called On Them To Go Back To The Middle East


James Johnson, the South Carolina president of Al Sharpton’s National Action Network [NAN], held a press conference in front of Andrew’s Discount Market yesterday. This is a convenience store located in North Charleston and run by immigrants.

Johnson referred to the store’s employee as “Arabs” and “foreigners.” He called on them to go back to the Middle East, saying “we want [them] out of our community completely. We want him gone out of the community. They need to go back to their country where their laws are different from our laws.”

Johnson followed up by saying “We sending a message to all the Arab and the foreigner stores in North Charleston and the city of Charleston that we gonna stop you from taking money from our community and putting none back in it.”

He then told the media he would no longer let foreigners “rape our community anymore.” Johnson is an official spokesman for NAN, who speaks on behalf of the group all the time.

Johnson was flanked by family members of Tyrone Deon Mazyck. This is a 38-year-old black male who was arrested at the store for shoplifting on March 29th. Johnson says the men working at the store were too rough in apprehending Mazyck.

The owner of Andrew’s Discount Market says Mazyck pushed the workers and cut them with a knife. Police say they found a pocket knife at the scene.

After Johnson’s press conference, a group of black men and women staged an angry protest in front of Andrew’s Discount Market. The scene was reminiscent of Al Sharpton’s notorious protest of Freddie’s Fashion Mart in Brooklyn, NY. A protest in 1995 where one of the protesters returned to the store, ordered all black customers to leave, then shot eleven people and set the building on fire. Seven victims died. Sharpton accused the Jewish owners of Freddies Fashion Mart of exploiting the black community.
