ARE SUFFERING FROM FOREST FIRES, MEXICO HAS HAD A DEVASTATING EARTHQUAKE PEOPLE HAVE BEEN KILLED, BUILDINGS HAVE BEEN TOPPLED, WE WILL SHOW YOU SOME VIDEO SHORTLY, BUT THIS EARTHQUAKE HAS BEEN DEVASTATING — THIS DISASTER PROBABLY NOT TRACEABLE TO CLIMATE CHANGE BUT CERTAINLY HAPPENING AT A PARTICULARLY BAD TIME AS BIG PARTS OF THIS HEMISPHERE ARE DEALING WITH DISASTERS ALREADY YOU SEE SOME OF THE IMMEDIATE AFTERMATH AND ONE OF THE THINGS THAT LED TO SOME OF THE DEATHS THAT COULD HAVE BEEN AVOIDED IS THAT — THOSE ARE GOING TO, OF COURSE — IT MEANS THE BUILDING CODES ARE PROBABLY LESS RIGOROUS AND SUPPORT PERSONNEL AND STAFF WILL BE LESS ABLE TO COPE WITH THE EFFECTS OF A DEADLY EARTHQUAKE I'M GLAD YOU MADE THAT POINT, BECAUSE THOSE COMMUNITIES ARE THE ONES THAT PAY THE GREATEST PRICE IN ALL OF THESE DISASTERS

THIS, TO THE BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE, IS A TOTAL COINCIDENCE IT'S JUST REALLY BAD TIMING AS WE EXPLAINED EARLIER IN THE SHOW, THE HURRICANES AND TREMENDOUS FIRES HAPPENING IN THE WESTERN UNITED STATES ARE NOT A COINCIDENCE, CLIMATE CHANGE MAKES STORMS MORE SEVERE, IT CAUSES THE PRECIPITATION TO GO INTO THE AIR, WHICH WHEN IT COMES FROM THE GROUND CAUSES DROUGHTS AND FIRES, WHEN IT COMES FROM THE OCEAN CAUSES PROLONGED RAIN AND FLOODING AND STORMS, SO WE ARE KIND OF LOOKING AT WHAT APPEARS TO BE END TIMES KIND OF SCENARIOS HERE, HIGHWAYS FILLED WITH CARS FLEEING, DEVASTATION WHERE HURRICANES HAVE HIT, THERE ARE THREE HURRICANES RIGHT NOW — AND MORE COMING BEHIND THEM RIGHT BUT THE EARTHQUAKE IS NOT RELATED TO THAT, IT'S JUST BAD TIMING THAT WE HAPPEN TO HAVE AN 8

1 QUAKE, THE WORST IN MEXICO FOR THE LAST 100 YEARS I WANT TO SHOW YOU TWO MORE VIDEOS, PEOPLE RECORDING AS THERE WAS GOING ON, LET'S ROLL THIS FIRST ONE APPARENTLY THE QUAKE WAS PARTICULARLY SHALLOW, WHICH MAKES IT MORE INTENSE AND WE HAVE ONE MORE VIDEO THAT'S A LONG TIME

THE DURATION OF THAT SHAKING HAS SO MUCH TO DO WITH THE DESTRUCTION YOU SEE AFTERWARD AND NOW UNFORTUNATELY BECAUSE OF THE EARTHQUAKE THEY ARE ALSO GOING TO BE HIT BY SOME TSUNAMIS, THAT WILL HAPPEN IN SOME PARTS OF MEXICO, BUT 3 FOOT WAVES COULD REACH AS FAR AS ECUADOR, NEW ZEALAND, AND VANUATU AND 18 MILLION HOMES HAVE LOST ELECTRICITY IN MEXICO AND ONE MORE CONSEQUENCE IS THAT OF COURSE 38 PEOPLE HAVE DIED, BUT BETTER REGULATIONS AND BUILDING CODES HAVE SAVED A LOT OF LIVES, BECAUSE THE LAST TIME A LESS SEVERE EARTHQUAKE HIT IN 1985, THAT WAS AN 8 INSTEAD OF 8

1, IT KILLED AN ESTIMATED 9500 PEOPLE IN MEXICO CITY THERE ARE DIFFERENT REASONS WHY REGULATIONS AREN'T THE ONLY REASON BUT THAT'S A CONTRIBUTING FACTOR WHEN BUILDINGS DON'T COLLAPSE IN THE KIND OF SHAKING YOU SAW THERE, LIVES ARE SAVED, AND THANK GOD THEY WERE IN THIS CASE RIGHT NOW OBVIOUSLY THERE IS SEARCH AND RESCUE GOING ON, I BELIEVE THERE'S A HOTEL THAT WAS DOWN, THEY THINK PEOPLE MIGHT BE INSIDE, THE DEATH TOLL WILL CONTINUE TO RISE, BUT ALREADY DEVASTATING AND FINALLY HURRICANE KATIA IS ABOUT TO HIT EASTERN MEXICO

SO AS IF THINGS AREN'T BAD ENOUGH, HURRICANES ARE ALSO COMING
