We usually don’t call something ‘life threatening.’ But yes, we want people to know that this is very much a life-threatening event.
Ken Simosko, meteorologist from Bismarck, North Dakota • Commenting on the intense so-called “polar vortex” reportedly working its way down through the US, funneling freezing North Pole air as far south as the Gulf Coast. Areas in North Dakota and Minnesota are forecasted to sustain a ghoulish wind chill of around minus 50 degrees Fahrenheit, which is, as Simosko emphasized, a dire condition for public health — such temperatures could, he said, cause the onset of frostbite in a mere five minutes. If you’re in the throes of this awful cold tonight, tomorrow, or going into the future, especially throughout the northeast and midwest, please take every precaution to keep yourself safe from the elements. source (via shortformblog)
this sounds like some fucking “The Day After Tomorrow” shit
Film: Pumzi is a Kenyan science fiction short film written and directed by Wanuri Kahiu. It was screened at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival as part of its New African Cinema program.
Pumzi, imagines a dystopian future 35 years after water wars have torn the world apart. East African survivors of the ecological devastation remain locked away in contained communities, but a young woman in possession of a germinating seed struggles against the governing council to bring the plant to Earth’s ruined surface.
Oh god I need to watch this. I need some non-white dominated scifi like plants need chlorophyll
Oooh, this looks pretty fucking awesome. Also, scifi as a genre especially needs to get the fuck over it’s whitewashing. If it’s set in a utopian (or dystopian) future with a unified planetary society (or even if not), why the fuck is 80% of the cast white and everyone is culturally Anglo except for like the token POC and token ‘ethnickyish’ white people.
So, this looks awesome.
OMGF I need to see this. I need to see this right now.
