This website is designed to collate lots of information on climate change, earthquakes, floods, global radiation levels, food production, debt and recent articles concerning all these things and more. It’s always being updated with helpful information. Enjoy!

Worlds CO2

Climate change is a long-term change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns over periods ranging from decades to millions of years. Climate change may be limited to a specific region or occur across the whole Earth. This site was set up to better monitor these changes.

Global Radiation

San Diego Geiger Counter

The Geiger Counter updates every few minutes with counts-per-minute (CPM). Note that 100 CPM is equivalent to 1 mS microsievert per hour, or 0.001 mSv millisieverts per hour. This is an Unofficial/Non-Government feed and may go offline occasionally for maintenance. Click here for symptoms of radiation

The Global Debt Clock

The Economist has an interesting Global Debt Clock.

The clock is ticking. Every second, it seems, someone in the world takes on more debt. The idea of a debt clock for an individual nation is familiar to anyone who has been to Times Square in New York, where the American public shortfall is revealed. Our clock shows the global figure for all (or almost all) government debts in dollar terms. The graphic to the left is a screen shot of the worlds debt on 09/06/11.

Does it matter? After all, world governments owe the money to their own citizens, not to the Martians. But the rising total is important for two reasons. First, when debt rises faster than economic output (as it has been doing in recent years), higher government debt implies more state interference in the economy and higher taxes in the future. Second, debt must be rolled over at regular intervals.

This creates a recurring popularity test for individual governments, rather as reality TV show contestants face a public phone vote every week. Fail that vote, as the Greek government did in early 2010, and the country can be plunged into imminent crisis. So the higher the global government debt total, the greater the risk of fiscal crisis, and the bigger the economic impact such crises will have.

Moon Phases

From any location on the Earth, the Moon appears to be a circular disk which, at any specific time, is illuminated to some degree by direct sunlight. Like the Earth, the Moon is a sphere which is always half illuminated by the Sun, but as the Moon orbits the Earth we get to see more or less of the illuminated half.

During each lunar orbit (a lunar month), we see the Moon's appearance change from not visibly illuminated through partially illuminated to fully illuminated, then back through partially illuminated to not illuminated again. Although this cycle is a continuous process, there are eight distinct, traditionally recognized stages, called phases. The phases designate both the degree to which the Moon is illuminated and the geometric appearance of the illuminated part.
