Scoop Images: Hurricanes Jeanne, Karl And Lisa

Following close in the wake of hurricanes Charley, Frances and Ivan, three new hurricanes - Jeanne, Karl and Lisa - are now meandering around the Atlantic Ocean and bringing a sense of unease to those living in coastal areas of the United States.

Of the three Jeanne is clearly the most dangerous at present having already killed an estimated 600 people in Haiti. The tropical storm that struck Haiti has since moved north, strengthened, and travelled in a tight loop and now looks to be headed once again back towards the United States coast.

Further out in the Atlantic the biggest of the three Hurricanes Karl is arguably the least threatening as its forecast path keeps it near the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.

The most recently named Atlantic storm, Lisa, can be considered Karl and Ivan's little sister as she formed in the same area of the Atlantic that spawned both Karl and Ivan. And Lisa, like Ivan appears to be headed in a roughly due westerly direction. Depending on whether she maintains strength and/or course she could in time come to threaten the Carribean and/or South and East coasts of the US mainland.

While reading the forecasts below it is worth recalling that the National Hurricane Center has a 400+ nautical mile average error in the location of hurricanes after five days, meaning it very hard to predict the paths that these storms over a period greater than about 24 hours. All that can be said at present about these three storms is that 2004 remains a very active Atlantic hurricane season.

Keith Rankin: Science, Scientists, And Scientism
Science, in the not-so-recent-past, has often had a bad press. It's been personified, particularly by the political left, as Frankenstein, as agents of capitalism, classical liberalism, colonialism, sexism (yang over yin), eugenics, and god-like pretension. More recently though, in the zeitgeists of climate change awareness and covid, it's had an unusually good press; although we retain this persistent worry that viruses such as SARS-Cov2 may be the unwitting or witting result of the work of careless or evil scientists...

Dunne Speaks: Can ACT's Dream Run Continue?

By most reckonings the ACT Party has had a very successful political year. Not only has its expanded Parliamentary team settled in well to its work, without controversy or scandal, but its leader has gained in community respect, and the party’s support, at least according to the public opinion polls, has increased sharply...

India may be to the 'Revolution of the twenty-first century' that Russia was to the 'Revolution of the twentieth century'... More>>



Gasbagging In Glasgow: COP26 And Phasing Down Coal

Words can provide sharp traps, fettering language and caging definitions. They can also speak to freedom of action and permissiveness. At COP26, that permissiveness was all the more present in the haggling ahead of what would become the Glasgow Climate Pact... More>>

Globetrotter: Why Julian Assange’s Inhumane Prosecution Imperils Justice For Us All

When I first saw Julian Assange in Belmarsh prison, in 2019, shortly after he had been dragged from his refuge in the Ecuadorean embassy, he said, “I think I am losing my mind.”
He was gaunt and emaciated, his eyes hollow and the thinness of his arms was emphasized by a yellow identifying cloth tied around his left arm... More>>

Dunne Speaks: Labour's High Water Mark
If I were still a member of the Labour Party I would be feeling a little concerned after this week’s Colmar Brunton public opinion poll. Not because the poll suggested Labour is going to lose office any time soon – it did not – nor because it showed other parties doing better – they are not... More>>
