If You live in these states Be Afraid Be Very Afraid Its Coming

I hope you all understand when I say be afraid I am being sarcastic.There was a time when we thought the world was good nothing would ever change Life was the way it was supposed to be!.There was also a time when we watched movies, such as The Day After Tomorrow, simply for their entertainment value. Although we can still mostly get away with laughing those types of doomsday climate scenarios off, the prospect of climate change doing enormous damage is getting much more real. Hurricanes, droughts, and tornadoes are hitting with increased frequency. People are losing their belongings, livelihoods, and in some cases their lives. It’s a very real and very scary situation — one that should only ramp up as time marches on.

A new study published in the journal Science shows us where in the U.S. the most damage is likely to occur. The researchers measure “damage” from climate change in the resulting drop in GDP. The more afflicted the area, the bigger the economic downturn expected. This would happen for a number of reasons, from businesses being physically destroyed to people simply picking up and moving to other states. For example, if prolonged droughts set in, agricultural firms might need to pick up and settle elsewhere, bringing jobs and opportunities with them.

Using the Science study and a corresponding piece from The New York Times, here are the states (in no particular order) that are going to get hit the hardest in coming years by climate change.

#1 New Mexico

We’ll begin out west, where the arid, dry desert states are in for some hurt. New Mexico, specifically, is likely to experience increased drought, which could in turn fuel more wild and forest fires and hurt agricultural operations across the state. And if things do get wet, the likelihood of dangerous flooding increases, too. The danger in New Mexico is mostly relegated to the southern portion of the state.

And it’s not the only Western state on our list.

#2 Arizona

As you can see in the photo above, the weather in Arizona can be downright otherworldly. Obviously, anyone who’s been to Phoenix can tell you it’s hot. But it could become much hotter as climate change sets in and further exacerbates weather patterns. There are only a couple of counties in Arizona that will be hit in severe fashion, but the state’s economy should brace for disruption.

Moving east, we come to one of the country’s economic powerhouses — one you shouldn’t mess with.

#3 Texas

If there’s one thing that seems primed to mess with Texas, it’s the climate. Texas is an enormous state that is home to millions of people and huge swaths of land, all of which would be impacted by shifting weather patterns. For Texans, that could mean any number of things — worsening droughts, hurricanes, thunderstorms and tornadoes, flooding, and more.

Continuing east, Katrina was just a precursor of what’s to come for folks in Cajun country.

#4 Louisiana

When it comes to climate change, things look bad on the bayou. Louisiana sits in a particularly precarious position on the Gulf Coast — a portion of the state is actually below sea level. And with those levels rising, there’s a chance some of the state might actually sink. In fact, it’s already happening. Add in some increased likelihood of hurricanes and other severe storms, and Louisiana’s clearly in trouble.

The same goes for many other Southern states.

#5 Mississippi

It’s hot, muggy, and in many areas swampy. And climate change will not do the folks living in Mississippi any favors in coming decades. Like neighboring states, Mississippi is in harm’s way when it comes to climatic pattern shifts. The study predicts several counties across the state will see severe hits to their economies — areas already hard-hit by economic strife.

And the same goes for Mississippi’s neighbor Alabama.

#6 Alabama

Alabama is more or less in the same position as Mississippi when it comes to climate change, according to the study. Every county in the state is expected to see damage to local GDP of at least 5%, with a couple of up to 20%. Again, in a part of the country already struggling with economic issues, this could be disastrous. Alabamans could be in for a rough ride.

We continue our eastward march now to Georgia.

#7 Georgia

You don’t often think of blizzards when you hear the word “Atlanta.” But they do happen in Georgia — as do other freak weather events. Those events could become more standard in coming decades as our climate patterns change. The result? Rather devastating effects to the Georgia economy, as laid out by the study in Science. In Georgia specifically, the southern part of the state is predicted to see the worst of it.

The bad news spreads south of the South, too.

#8 Florida

The highest point in Florida is only around 300 feet above sea level. That means even the slightest increase in sea level would be devastating to the state, which could see billions in real estate sink beneath the waves. Local economies would also be effectively sunk. The Science study shows more than 20 counties in Florida could see GDP drops of more than 15%.

Further up the Atlantic coast, the outlook gets a little rosier — but not by much.

#9 South Carolina

South Carolina, per the study, won’t be hit nearly as hard in coming years as Florida. But it’s still in for a tough time. The data shows there are no counties in South Carolina expected to be hit so hard that GDP is slashed by more than 15%. But 10% is much more likely in a good portion of the state. South Carolinians will need to watch out for stronger hurricanes and more flooding in years to come.

Now we switch gears and move back inland.

#10 Arkansas

Arkansas is yet another state in the South that is in some big trouble, according to the study. Many Arkansans are used to extreme weather in one form or another, but climate change could crank that up to “11.” More than half of the state’s counties are predicted to see their GDPs affected negatively, by anywhere from 5% to 10%. Only one county has hopes of seeing no change at all.

West of Arkansas, the predictions are the same.

#11 Oklahoma

Oklahoma is very flat and lies in the middle of “Tornado Alley.” That makes it a hotbed of severe weather, including intense thunderstorms and, of course, tornadoes. Add in flooding and droughts, and Oklahoma is in a precarious position when it comes to climate change. In the southeastern portion of the state, local economies are expected to suffer the most.

Next up is the home of the Titans and Predators

#12 Tennessee

Tennessee has recently experienced some of the worst wildfires in its history. That might have only been a preview, unfortunately, as Tennessee is another state set to see some big problems as a result of climate change. Though the GDP predictions aren’t as alarming as in other states, most of Tennessee’s counties are expected to bleed in coming decades.

We move a little bit north now to another state that is likely to suffer economic strife.

#13 Missouri

Missouri isn’t near the Gulf Coast or typically considered to be a part of the the South, but for the purposes of this study and list it might as well be. The state — particularly counties in the southeastern part — are predicted to see some serious economic damage due to changing weather patterns. The threat is less severe, but still very much real, in the state’s northern reaches.

Another economically disadvantaged state is also on tap for climate-related troubles.

#14 Kentucky

Like other states we’ve discussed, there are parts of Kentucky that are struggling mightily. And when you add climate change projections into the mix, they look downright doomed. Fortunately, the forecasts for Kentucky aren’t as dire as those in, say, Alabama or Mississippi. But there’s still some real hurt that’s bound to set in. The most severe hits should occur in the western part of the state.

Finally, we have a large and economically vibrant state.

#15 California

You see it every summer. California inexplicably experiences some pretty severe droughts and then half of the state seems to catch on fire. Climate-related disasters like these aren’t going away anytime soon either. Parts of California should fare well. But the center of the state — the drier, more desert-like regions — is set for some economic decline

Hello Again and Thanks for reading it is I David "IT40" Ellenberger with an update on the status of my lawsuit against Alphabet inc case # 4:20-CV-04877-SBA  and the website and life in general. By now if you regularly visit InternetTop40.com you may have read this section "author info" or Bio. So I am adding to it with more bio and more info. I originally liked the idea of voting on the internet 20-25 years ago when I first got online with WebTV (does anyone remember that?).

The technology at that time was not advanced enough to easily be able to vote online or watch videos or much else for that matter but I was hooked and look at what we can do now with videos, IOT, and everything else, but I digress. I started InternetTop40.com about 5 years ago and the user base has been going up steadily ever since. I wanted to be another Facebook, with music and voting and that is all coming together slowly but surely. BTW if you want to help or have any interest please feel free to email me anytime.

Now in my previous Author Info or bio page I made it clear or at least I thought I made it clear, I am personally suing Alphabet inc. in Federal Court for Fraud. I have evidence to prove they are not counting all the pageviews, among other things and defrauding myself and probably millions of other website owners and content creators out of Billions of dollars. So if I wasn't clear or you didn't know it's true I am suing Alphabet inc. in Federal Court for Fraud the case was recently moved from my state of Kentucky to N. California to make it easier for Alphabet inc. to steam roll me or so they think. Needless to say if you are interested and I hope you are you can look the case up online under my name "David Russell Ellenberger" or the case # which is 4:20-CV-04877-SBA.

Now, I want to make it clear to you and everyone that I am not suing Alphabet inc. aka Google for fraud just because I want a million dollars for nothing. I am suing Google for fraud because I think they are committing  a serious crime with worldwide and societal ramifications, it is a  very serious problem.  I am suing Google for fraud because to put it simply the analytics numbers don't add up at least not in my favor or yours, there is something very fishy going on with the Google analytics numbers. Of course Google has an excuse for every one of them but I have reasons and the actual numbers and they don't add up, more about the numbers later.

Companies like Google are making Billions of dollars a year in profits telling us data is the most valuable thing and misleading us and misdirecting the media and the world every chance they can.  Now data is valuable and they are making billions in profits seemingly like magic but there is no magic to it just corruption and lies. One thing Alphabet inc. aka Google is really making their money from and that is advertising dollars and they are putting all of this advertising on the websites other people have created.

Websites that I have created and  websites you have created and websites millions of others around the world have created websites or content. For example Just writing a text is creating content and that's where Google puts the billions in advertising they receive and keeping most of it for themselves. Yes content others have created and yet somehow they are keeping almost all of these billions for themselves and not distributing it equitably to the real workers the true content creators who actually deserve the advertising monies. Google has made it's billions on the backs of you and me. Think about that for a minute, how can they continue to justify this? They Can't, it has to change.

For example if I were to prevail in the current lawsuit just half of the monies or $20 billion put into a basic account and compounded at 5% annually we could realistically employ over 80,000 people at $24,000 a year, indefinitely.  Sounds unbelievable but its true and if we only employed 40,000 people we could pay them approx. $48,000 a year indefinitely. Its all true. Its simply a matter of having the money and the will to do it. Now is 40,000 people a lot well yes it would be a lot of employees but with more money simply put into a trust account we could employ more people

I David Russell Ellenberger through my website InternetTop40.com am suing Google to try to help right a wrong. A wrong committed by Google that has simply gotten out of hand. Most people may think they can't do anything about it. Nothing can stop Google, the politicians don't care they use all of Googles data to further their own campaigns and line their own pockets while the rest of us keep on creating the content for Google, nothing can be done, this however is not the case, we can do something.

The politicians and Alphabet inc. aka Google have done nothing to help society at large other than organize it so they can keep more money in secret and pay off all their buddies with their fraudulently obtained money. It's gotten so bad that the politicians and others in control won't even talk about it, they ignore it and hope it goes away, they won't even try to stop google because it is helping them too much and maybe they are scared of Google or who knows what they may be thinking. But it looks like fraud and it's coming to an end.

I'm telling you we can do something and I David Russell Ellenberger an average citizen Content Creator am saying to you, I'm not scared of Google because I have nothing left to loose.  I David Russell Ellenberger am telling you there is something you too can do, if nothing else, tell all your friends to come to InternetTop40.com aka IT40, believe these words and Create your Content.

Further I promise to you and all who read this if we do prevail in the lawsuit against Alphabet Inc. We will use half of any monies we may receive to pay "content creators" a living wage. I pledge to anyone who is reading this, we will use half of any monies we may receive to help those who really do want to work on the internet and create content and tell us what they think. We will use half of any money so you can Get Paid, we want you to get paid for the content you create and get paid everyday and Get Paid to Vote create data and to be able to do this work online and from your home or anywhere in the world you care to be. Because in the words of an ancient scholar Y-O-U are the business Y-O-U are creating all the data, Y-O-U are the content creators and Y-O-U are all that matters.

Now the main thing I want you to take away form this and to know, Alphabet inc. is and has been committing fraud against you, me and everyone who uses the internet. I don't think Google started out to defraud the world it has just degenerated into this endless morass of corruption and fraud and no one seems to care, Well I care and I know you care too.  Sadly Google has been doing this with impunity for years and it is only getting worse. Please don't let them fool you with their lies and obfuscation. Do some research create some content build a website and research the analytics numbers you will find I am right. Google owes you, me and everyone online thousands if not 10's of thousands of dollars for all the data and advertising dollars they have co-opted from you and the rest of the world. So join with me don't use any Google products or file your own lawsuit in federal court against Alphabet inc. I will be glad to help you any way I can and show you how to do it if need be. It will take a sincere effort on your part but it will definitely help your self esteem, society and the world.

Now that's about all I have to say on this subject for now.  I will tell you this if you want more information or you have questions or comments for me, my email is [email protected] Thank you for reading looking and listening and believing in InternetTop40.com Please tell all your friends about us and don't forget to vote Thumbs up or down and refresh your page when your done. One last Thing, I need all the help I can get I am only 1 person but together and with todays technology we can move mountains and reframe society and our world the way we want it to be. One final note let me tell you about a new website coming to the world called IVAMP.org.... Thank you ttyl
