Hurricane Michael: 'Too late to flee' storm set to hit Florida
BBC, 10 Oct 2018 14:27Z
US officials say it is too late to flee from the path of Hurricane Michael -
a category 4 storm - hours before it is due to hit the US mainland.

Patrick Bigbie WDAM @PatrickWDAM 10 Oct 2018 15:14Z
Hurricane Michael is now 7 mph short of Category 5 Status and it's STILL
INTENSIFYING!! Winds are now up to 150mb and the pressure is still falling!!
Now down to 923mb!! This is unlike anything that NW Florida has ever seen!!!

county. We've issued our first ever Extreme Wind Warning. This means wind
gusts in excess of 130 MPH are expected as #HurricaneMichael makes landfall
in the next few hours. Shelter in place IMMEDIATELY. pic.twitter.com/5nHmcKLGm0

Extended out to 5-days ... Note the red tracks on the right of the ensemble
mean (black bubble line) -- those are more intense since they remain over
the Gulf longer & represent stronger scenarios ... But right now, focusing
on Destin area landfall. pic.twitter.com/bv5g3PzBtT

#Hurricane #Michael's pressure continues to drop - now down to 919 hPa. Only
two continental US hurricanes have made landfall with a lower pressure:
Labor Day (1935) - 892 hPa and Camille (1969) - 900 hPa.

It weakened slightly according to the latest flight. Very very very slightly.
I doubt it has enough to make Cat 5. It's going down more than likely as
one heck of a 4.

Hurricane Michael is set to be the Florida Panhandle's worst hurricane on
record. Authorities ordered 1000s of people to shelter, saying there is
no time left to evacuate. ## sea levels could rise 14ft ## potential
flooding up to 9ft ## 10,000 people already without power

Hurricane #Michael just dropped to 919 mb, making it the 3rd strongest
hurricane to hit the continental United States on record. Stronger (by
pressure) than Andrew & Katrina. Only the Keys hurricane and Camille were
stronger. Unreal. pic.twitter.com/V3TqFY1KIh

"Exxon wants a low price on carbon to keep its business afloat and box out
more effective climate mitigation strategies, including holding fossil fuel
companies legally accountable for the damage they've done to our planet"

Five minutes before Exxon started lobbying
for a tax that will benefit the rich an
impoverish the poor you thought they were
evil. But now you can't praise then fast

Geo taxation is always progressive.

Want to destroy yer economy?

Subsidize carbon like Venezuela.

Want to live in a functional democracy like Netherlands w/o any poor people?

Tax the hell out of carbon.
