California Heat Roasts Mussels in Their Shells in Mass Die-Off

 

 
At a Glance
  • Unusual June heat in the California combined with low tides to cause a mass die-off of California mussels.
  • It was the worst die off in at least 15 years in Bodega Head, California, according to researchers.
  • The mussels, completely exposed to the heat, baked in their shells.

 

Unusually warm temperatures combined with seasonal low tides to roast California mussels in their shells in an mass die-off that could have larger implications on the local marine ecosystem.

 

The die-off was first noticed and detailed by Jackie Sones, a research coordinator for UC Davis and the Bodega Marine Reserve, which includes Bodega Head – one of the sites where a die-off was reported – a point of land that juts into the Pacific Ocean 40 miles north of San Francisco.

Well - Actually They Do

 

But Accumulating 3 Feet Of Hail Over A Entire City Is Not Something Anyone Typically Experiences over a Lifetime in Mexico Central & South America 

 

What areas have the most hail?

 

Though Florida has the most thunderstorms, Nebraska, Colorado, and Wyoming usually have the most hail storms. The area where these three states meet – “hail alley,” averages seven to nine hail days per year. The reason why this area gets so much hail is that the freezing levels (the area of the atmosphere at 32 degrees or less) in the high plains are much closer to the ground than they are at sea level, where hail has plenty of time to melt before reaching the ground.

 

Other parts of the world that have damaging hailstorms include China, Russia, India and northern Italy.

Republicans say it was worse in the 1930's, so no worries about climate change.

 

They seem to forget in the 30's there was no A/C so deaths from extreme heat were much higher .

 

GOPers cannot connect dots, so they don't consider what will happen when the over use of A/C triggers more wide ranging blackouts depriving tens of millions of their A/C.

 

The GOPerLords get richer from fossil fuels, and doubtless have already used some of their illgotten profits to install backup generators to spare their families from the blackouts their madness condemns the rest of us to. But why does the GOPerBase not see THEIR very unhappy future?

And Trump still does not believe in science. Let's hope the next president will be able to read.
