2011 East Coast Earthquake
A fairly minor Earthquake, all things considered, which could have been a lot worse. While it wasn't noticeable up where I live, some of my family members in Pennsylvania could feel it. Personally, I'm more worried about the Hurricane which is hitting us this weekend.

2011 Eruptions of Grímsvötn Volcano in Iceland
So far it's merely causing travel delays. Some 500 flights have been canceled across Europe. Nothing quite major other than inconveniences for now. Hopefully, that's all there is to it! Just lots of smoke!

Supervolcano
The last one erupted some 74,000 years ago at Lake Toba, Sumatra, Indonesia. That's where my childhood playground was! Yellowstone is expected to erupt anytime soon or possibly not in the next few lifetime. It's due for one though.

Yann Arthus-Bertrand
Yann Arthus-Bertrand is a French photographer and an environmentalist. It is through his beautiful photography that we are reminded of the beauty of this world and also how important it is for others to be aware of the beauty of this planet and to exert our utmost effort to keep it a blue (and green) planet! A man who speaks his heart through his images and through his observation. Excellent job!    …

Hurricane on the Bayou
How does hurricane form? This film was made after the last disastrous hurricane, Katrina, hits New Orleans. It attempts to explain the way environment had been changed (more or less manhandled) so significantly that the natural protection being removed over the last 5 decades had left the South (USA) totally naked. The wetlands act as speed bums when the storm surged so much so every foot of …

Alabama Storm
It was only less than 2 months since the last tsunami hitting Japan. We are now seeing extreme weather in the U.S. beginning with the Apr. 25 tornado and storms hitting some 5 states (Mississippi, Alabama, Virginia, Georgia and Tennessee), with Alabama being the worst hit. Death toll totals more than 300 people.      It is grim and it is not over yet. I've just read that …
The Power of the Sea: Tsunamis, Storm Surges,
Occasionally, people ask what drives to me to an author or particular topic. In the case of Bruce Parker's excellent book, The Power of the Sea; Tsunamis, Storm Surges, Rogue Waves, and Our Quest to Predict Disasters, the answer is simple. A while ago, I read a book that had a little to do with rogue waves and a lot to do with extreme surfers. After that disappointment, I wanted to know more about …

IMAX Coral Reef Adventure (Blu-ray)
      To see another world beyond ours, one needs some form of transportation and skill. I believe I need to take up snorkeling and diving immediately! Despite that I’ve had nightmares about being drowned in water the temptation of another world is so great that perhaps I’m willing to tempt death.            Colorful, living corals …

Excellent footage of the sea and the colorful coral reefs. The film explores the reasons for the deaths of the corals by diving around 3 different areas, namely Australia, Fiji and French Polynesia. Stunning landscapes and seascapes. Highly educational and entertaining film. Highly recommended!

Massive Nature
As humans evolved and as intelligent as the world becomes, sometimes we tend to forget the basic instincts of living organisms. We all need food! We in the richer and more advanced countries have the tendency to forget that. Many a time we waste food, don’t we? And the reason behind recent protests in the Middle East? High food prices is clearly one of the main and motivating reasons!   …

2011 Japan Earthquake and Tsunami
Exactly a week after the 9.0 magnitude and tsunami in northern Japan, I found myself landing in Shanghai, a city which is a mere 2 hours flight from Tokyo. Flights, I was told, are full for those trying to get out of Tokyo. It's a hectic exodus for many foreigners who study, live or vacationing in Japan. Foreign companies are chartering flights to get their staff out, no matter what the cost is!   …
