@gungasnake,
You are finally seeing the reality of global warming?

This is the first scientific thread where you have made any sense. It is true that we are being hit pretty hard by climate change this winter.

@maxdancona,
I hope you also realize that that picture was not taken in Boston (or in the US for that matter).

@ehBeth,
You're spot on, ehbeth.

The steering wheel appears to be on the correct side of the vehicle, therefore indicating that it also drives on the correct side of the road.

UK, Oz, NZ etc. drive on the left. The list also includes JAPAN.

The other side of that is that the West, South West and Great Plains states are predicted to be in a 1,000 year drought with no relief in sight for a very long time.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/health-science/todays-drought-in-the-west-is-nothing-compared-to-what-may-be-coming/2015/02/12/0041646a-b2d9-11e4-854b-a38d13486ba1_story.html

The long and severe drought in the U.S. Southwest pales in comparison with what’s coming: a “megadrought” that will grip that region and the central Plains later this century and probably stay there for decades, a new study says.

Thirty-five years from now, if the current pace of climate change continues unabated, those areas of the country will experience a weather shift that will linger for as long as three decades, according to the study, released Thursday.

Researchers from NASA and Cornell and Columbia universities warned of major water shortages and conditions that dry out vegetation, which can lead to monster wildfires in southern Arizona and parts of California.

NASA scientists studied past droughts and climate models incorporating soil moisture data to estimate future drought risk. According to NASA's study, "droughts in the U.S. Southwest and Central Plains during the last half of this century could be drier and longer than drought conditions seen in those regions in the last 1,000 years."

We need to be building pipelines to transport water rather than petroleum.

This is what Rte 6 actually looks like as of right now (I just realized this traffic cam link updates every time you refresh the screen... pretty cool eh?) .

@ehBeth,

Murodo-daira of Tateyama has one of the heaviest snows in the world, and the snow reaches about seven meters (23 ft) on average. In particular, the snow mantle at Otani, a five-minute walk from Murodo Station, sometimes gets more than 20 meters (65.6 ft) because of snowdrifts. The famous “Snow Walls” are formed by expelling this heavy snow, and the 500-meter-long area with such snow walls is open to sightseers from mid-April to late May.

In 2015, the full route opening period is from April 16 until November 30. The Yuki-no-Otani Snow Wall Walk 2015's period is from April 16 to June 22nd.


Perhaps the Plymouth & Brockton busses are running there all the other time?

No Walt.

During the summer, gunga's mates use that region for "sightings of Elvis" photoshoots.

@Walter Hinteler,
I never would have guessed that I could take a bus from Cape Cod to Tateyama, Japan.

@gungasnake,
You don't believe in evolution or global warming, but you believe everything you read on facebook. Figures.

You seem to be as smart as your friend, Gungasnake, Lordy. Did you perhaps read the post of the lady before you?

     This picture is from Japan, not from Boston, but the global f'cking up of the climate is a reality. The fossil fuel mafia is f'cking around with the things, and it will become interesting when the things start f'cking up with as ... as it goes.
     The global climate f.u. is at such a level that no measures are enough at present ... and it will become worse, much worse ... and sooner than expected.
