Green Wise – Earthquakes Are Now Extreme Weather Events
War ravaged Afghanistan is to spend US $6 million on the country’s first ever Climate Change programme.
The programme will be managed by Afghanistans National Environmental Protection Agency and the United Nations Environment Programme, with funding coming from the Global Environment Facility.
The UN has identified Afghanistan as one of the countries most at risk from Anthropogenic Global Warming:
UNEP has identified Afghanistan as one of the countries most vulnerable to climate change. Since 1998, more than 6.7 million Afghans have been affected by disasters and extreme weather events such as drought and earthquakes.
NASA describe earthquakes as “the Earth’s natural means of releasing stress. When the Earth’s plates move against each other, stress is put on the lithosphere. When this stress is great enough, the lithosphere breaks or shifts”
Not much of a weather connection there, extreme or otherwise, possibly Green Wise retain Hollywood Champange environmentalist and climate fool Danny Glover as a consultant meterologist.
