In the Year 2050

Post by Rogue on Tue Sep 02, 2014 8:01 am

Weather reporters predict devastating typhoons, mega-drought and hurricanes for 2050
SEPTEMBER 02, 2014 7:32PM

“MIAMI South Beach is underwater”, says the forecaster, before scenes of typhoon devastation fill the screen.

Another weather reporter announces that Arizona’s mega-drought has claimed another casualty.

Shots of an approaching hurricane flash up as we see families fleeing floods.

Meanwhile, we learn, towns in South Africa and Bulgaria are suffering through searing 50C heat.

This is the United Nations’ terrifying vision for 2050, the first in its series of “weather reports from the future”.

The stark videos, produced with national broadcasters from Japan to Iceland, are being released ahead of the UN’s Climate Summit 2014.

They warn of a year’s rainfall in a month, destruction of ocean life and plagues of pests — just 36 years from now.

The World Meteorological Organization invited TV presenter from around the globe to prepare weather reports for 2050, depicting likely local impacts of climate change.

The year was chosen because it is halfway to the end of the 21st century, by which time it’s thought average global temperatures could rise by more than 4C, if greenhouse gas emissions continue to increase at the current rate.

WMO will release the videos throughout September to support UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon’s call for ambitious action at the UN Climate Summit on September 23 to prevent these worst-case scenarios.

“Climate change is affecting the weather everywhere,” said Ban. “It makes it more extreme and disturbs established patterns. That means more disasters; more uncertainty.

“We can reduce the risks by cutting global greenhouse gas emissions and building low-carbon economies.

“Let’s work together to make our societies safer and more resilient.”

WMO Secretary-General Michel Jarraud said: “Climate change is already leading to more extreme weather such as intense heat and rain. The ‘abnormal’ risks becoming the norm. We need to act now.”

This is what is expected to happen if we keep on putting more CO2 into the atmosphere.

VM, to predict the weather is one of the most difficult things.....but, no matter what's causing it, we can all see with our own eyes that the climate has changed and it keeps on changing.

Razz  nonsense........

I, for one, do believe they made them that way and for that reason. They've found tools and followed instructions and showed how it could be done. I posted something about it at the Stream awhile back. At any rate, that's got nothing to do with religion... it would be easier to have a discussion if you'd stop changing the subject willy nilly.

Climate change has to take into account the ENTIRE planet VM, not just one place for one season or even ten seasons. It's happening and being recorded/noticed whether you like it or not. I can't see why anyone would want to lie or pretend about it anyway.

Yes, the pyramids were built with chisels and stones, I still have the pictures I posted at the stream....and the instructions the Egyptians left.

VM, the weather where I live is not 'normal'; the local elderly tell me they used to have snow and very long harsh winters all the time, and not so much rain. Now there's never snow, it rains all the time and the overall temperature has been increasing.

August 2014

August was an often unsettled month with some large daily rainfall totals in some areas. Ex-Hurricane 'Bertha' passed over the UK on 10th to 11th bringing some unseasonably windy and wet weather, before moving into the North Sea and maintaining a cool and showery regime. The second half of the month saw some notably cool days and nights with some early ground frosts, and remained unsettled resulting in a cool and wet month overall.

The provisional UK mean temperature was 13.9 °C, 1.0 °C below the 1981-2010 long-term average. This was the coolest August for the UK since 1993, ending a sequence of eight warmer than average months. Rainfall was above average, particularly across northern Scotland which had its wettest August in a series from 1910. The UK overall received 156% of average rainfall and this was equal-seventh wettest in the series. It was a slightly sunnier than average month in the north and west with 107% of average sunshine hours for the UK overall.

A maximum temperature of 27.2 °C was recorded at St James Park (Greater London) on the 7th. A minimum temperature of -2.1 °C was recorded at Braemar (Aberdeenshire) on the 25th. In the 24 hours ending at 0900 GMT on the 10th, 132.6 mm of rain fell at Fair Isle (Northern Isles). A wind gust of 64 mph was recorded at Needles Old Battery (Isle of Wight) on the 10th.

For the third time VM Have you actually been to Egypt? I very much doubt it somehow.

Yes, they left instructions VM in the hieroglyphics which showed the machinery they used along with the tools. And no, they are not copper either, they are bronze. Bronze can be as hard as steel with the right alloy. There are bronze chisels all over the place mate.

The stone used was sandstone and limestone both quite easy to work. Even granite can be cut with a mudsaw, something the Egyptians were very familiar with.

Bronze is Hard and brittle (bronze chisels used on granite would shatter).

Bronze is a metal alloy consisting primarily of copper, usually with tin as the main additive, but sometimes with other elements such as phosphorus, manganese, aluminum, or silicon.

Hard and brittle. Melts at 950 centigrade but depends on amount of tin present. Bronze resists corrosion (especially seawater corrosion) and metal fatigue more than steel and is also a better conductor of heat and electricity than most steels.


http://www.diffen.com/difference/Brass_vs_Bronze

Steel is softer than granite.

Hardened steel is about the same hardness as granite.

Granite is a very hard, crystalline, igneous rock primarily composed of feldspar, quartz, orthoclase or
microcline accompanied by one or more dark minerals. It is visibly homogeneous in texture. It is the most
common plutonic rock of the Earth's crust, forming by the cooling of magma (silicate melt) at depth.

Granite is more than just a pretty face. The stone is second only to diamonds in hardness, which accounts for
the effectiveness of diamonds in facilitating the quarrying of the natural stone.
It is granite's toughness and
durability that make it such a desirable counter top material. It won't break or crack, and it is virtually scratch
and stain resistant.


http://www.volusiagranite.com/HistoryOfGranite.html




The construction of the King's Chamber, the very kernel of the whole building, is quite remarkable. It is a room of 34 feet in length, with a width of 17 feet, and a height of 19, composed wholly of granite blocks of great size, beautifully polished, and fitted together with great care. The construction of the roof is particularly admirable. First, the chamber is covered in with nine huge blocks, each nearly nineteen feet long and four feet wide, which are laid side by side upon the walls so as to form a complete ceiling. Then above these blocks is a low chamber similarly covered in, and this is repeated four times; after which there is a fifth opening, triangular, and roofed in by a set of huge sloping blocks, which meet at the apex and support each other. The object is to relieve the chamber from any weight, and prevent it from being crushed in by the mass of material above it. The entire chamber, with its elaborate roof, remains intact, without crack or settlement of any kind.

We're the same here Ag's, the old blokes I yarn with were telling me about how water used to freeze in the pipes Shocked Nothing even close to that now.

Bronze can be made to be extremely tough, it was made into swords VM. It depends on the alloy of copper, tin and antimony generally. As a Structural Engineer I am well aware of the strengths and weaknesses of bronze alloys.

The bronze tools used in old Egypt had traces of nickel in them too which would have made them very hard and tough.

I have seen the investigation reports on the alloys used. You seem to be of the opinion that there is some sort of grand conspiracy to cover up everything regarding the Pyramids yet apparently you have never been there to see for yourself. I suggest politely that you do so and you will see how it was all done.

Before the Iron Age, Ancient Egyptians had no steel tools to use in consummating such works that can not be made at present without special tools such as power drills. In this context, anthropologists argue that although working methods used by ancient Egyptians were slower and harder, they were no less effective than ours today. Studies of remaining ancient tools and illustrations of sculptors at work show that their working modalities were as follows: The overall design was made, using a global-shaped hammer of more solid stone, then cut with a saw and sanded out. Stone was carved with pointed-end tools and drilled with a tool counterpoised with a bag of pebbles. Cutting devices were made of hammered copper sharpened with an abrasive material like modern sandpaper.
