16:55 Phys.orgSharing the lessons learned during the 2013 Colorado flood

Hurricanes and tropical storms on the coasts tend to get countrywide airtime for their intensity and impact, but floods in the central part of the U.S. also cause significant damage and disruption. That is certainly true for the Front Range of Colorado. In 1864, a massive flood from the Poudre River destroyed the Camp Collins military post in LaPorte. In 1997, the Spring Creek flood caused $200M in damages and five deaths, when 10-14 inches of rain fell in a 31-hour period. Most recently, in September 2013, six days of historic levels of rain caused massive flooding in Northern Colorado's Front Range.

17:34 Phys.orgDrones caused havoc at Gatwick, so why are governments still spending billions on tanks and aircraft carriers?

The disruption caused by reports of drones flying over Gatwick airport in December 2018 was a magnificent illustration of the uselessness of the UK's big-ticket defence spending. The United Kingdom is not short of high-end military kit. Apart from its nuclear deterrent (which may or may not be in working order), the nation's £37 billion annual defence spending has allowed it to build, buy and maintain a formidable array of weapons systems. Britain's new aircraft carrier provides a platform for F-35 fighter planes and, according to the UK defence secretary, the power "to strike decisively from the seas anywhere in the world".
