1st May - Today's News: 3 Dead in Havana Storm







Japanese island residents get seaside surprise as 1,000ft rises above the surface overnight - I recall something similar occurring in Alaska a few years back, though unfortunately can't trace a link to the story.  It's all down to landslides.

Heatwaves 'more likely' in England - good news for some, I suppose, though it was the mild winter that helped make last year a record warm one, moreso than the July heat wave.


Climate change risk to 'one in six species' according to a latest study, though I am not sure climate change alone is the main concern.


Did dinosaur-killing asteroid trigger largest lava flows on Earth? - not a new theory as I heard the suggestion many years ago, though now there may be more evidence to support it.

And a note to be wary about what you read in online media - this story is dated 1st May, but in fact refers to a storm in January 2014.   I bet somewhere on the Net it is being cited as an example of extreme cold weather occuring this spring .....
