Your daily dose of natural disaster and amazing phenomena - January 30, 2021

I am a bit down today...

I don’t know for you, but today I feel down. As if I wasn’t able to hear and or understand my feelings, my rage and my frustration.

I feel as if I was trapped at the bottom of this crater in California:

I am kind of lost in the immensity of the Universe and try to figure out a reason to my quest, starring into the eye of this lonely galaxy:

But, as you know, there are still many different things we still have to understand to live in harmony with our Earth in our little corner of the world.

For example, scientists are always finding incredible ancient building techniques, mysterious objects in the sky or ancient artifacts, they are unable to explain. But why?

And what about these strange monuments discovered underwater around the world. Has each country its own Atlantis?

Here an example for Cuba:

What about dinosaurs and how they lived? Fascinating, isn’t it? This well-preserved dino footprint discovered by a four-year-old girl on a beach at Bendricks Bay, Barry, in the Vale of Glamorgan may help to understand more.

It also breaks my heart to see the numbers of rhinos in Kruger National Park have declined dramatically over the last 10 years. An official count in the park, home to the world's biggest concentration of rhinos, found it had lost two thirds of its animals in less than 10 years.

Moreover, I used to say sequoias are too big to fail. But in the last few years, it’s pretty scary to see how many have been taken out due to always more vicious storms. Just 2 days ago, 100mph winds toppled 15 giant sequoia trees in Yosemite during an extreme weather event that triggered the biggest storm damage to the park since 1997.

The oceans have a mysterious vitamin (thiamine) deficiency, which disrupts some marine ecosystems.

I would like to know when all this Corona-s**t is going to end finally. But when I read the current news we are stucked:

  • New data showing that two COVID-19 vaccines are far less effective in South Africa than in other places they were tested have heightened fears that the coronavirus is quickly finding ways to elude the world’s most powerful tools to contain it.

  • A Corona-related food crisis and shortage is underway: A gauge of global food prices has climbed to a six-year high and may have further to run as a Chinese crop-buying spree and adverse weather bolsters markets.

  • The Rose Hills Memorial Park and Mortuary in Whittier, California, may be the biggest cemetery in North America but the 1,400-acre park is struggling to cope with the number of bodies awaiting funeral services due to an increase in COVID-19 deaths.

Finally, from the Midwest to the Northeast, millions of people are bracing for an apocalyptic snowstorm that'll begin Saturday and end Tuesday. So be ready! Here the forecast
