Weather movies are making a come back - can you say BALDWIN! Hehehe...premiering this Saturday, Dark Storm takes us to an all new low for weather sci-fi movies.
On a secret military base a group of scientists have made a discovery unequaled since the invention of the A-bomb; code-named Eruptor, it's a device that supercharges Dark Matter and uses it to change the molecular structure of its target, thereby eradicating it. But when the Eruptor malfunctions and a leading scientist on the project is blasted with Dark Matter, he receives incredible abilities that allow him to control the weather, as the same device now threatens the world!

There's a common misconception that Greenhouse gases are bad and that if we got rid of them - we'd stop global warming. Well - not true. We need greenhouse gases to survive and warm the planet, but we don't need as many as we're producing now.
Here's a common misconception:
The greenhouse effect is caused when gases in the atmosphere behave as a blanket and trap radiation which is then reradiated to the Earth.
Read Bad Greenhouse to get set straight on greenhouse gases.

Did you know that rain is not tear dropped shaped? Well - we did, but we see it represented in teardrop form so much, we forget sometimes it isn't.
The artistic representation of raindrop as presented by popular culture is that of a teardrop. Actually, real raindrops bear scant resemblance to this popular fantasy (except after they have ceased to be raindrops by splattering on a window, say). It may seem too easy a target to single out the Weather Channel for criticism for their shoddy representation when virtually everyone from advertisers to illustrators of children's books do likewise. Yet, I would like to think they could be held to a higher standard as they attempt to convey the image of purveyors of accurate information.
