Thailand flooding, October 2011 (part 2)

Here are photos of flooding in Bangkok, Thailand, as of yesterday and today. Photos taken from

Flood map as of October 26, 2011. Not all of Bangkok is in danger of inundation but certain areas like Don Muang and its surrounding districts are under the direct path of huge volume of flood water.

A condo, a gas station, a street under the skyway. People are lucky to be transported by huge trucks.

Improvised elevated walkways have to be constructed to spare the people from getting wet feet for long. Leptospirosis is a common disease among people exposed to dirty flood water.

Flooded runway and airport is clear reason why all flights and landings have to be cancelled.

Monks have to endure walking the flooded streets.

More scenes of flooding.

Before and after the flooding.

Here is the sea surface temperature (SST) anomaly as of today. The Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, have warmer than normal temperature, which probably explains the lack of rain, though at times cloudy sky over Metro Manila and surrounding provinces.

Thailand, China have colder than normal SST. Which should partly or largely explain the heavy rains and flooding in Thailand, the monsoon rain coming from the north.


Again, I hope that people will not argue that "global warming caused this global cooling and flooding in Thailand and many other areas". The sooner that people will realize that man-made warming (AGW) is a scam, the more prepared they are in dealing with global cooling which is projected to last for 2 or more decades.

Then all those endless junkets in global climate meetings and large rent-seeking activities like more climate loans, more renewable energy loans and subsidies, should finally stop.
