Strange Weather Indeed in Southern Europe These Days

Black clouds could as well be very welcome in severalSouthern Europe places, where they lack rain and would be happy with some free water (or free whatever, these days), but some fear, that what looks like clouds could be black smoke from fires.

Those who would like to read more about ongoing climates and other changes in Europe (and the rest of the world including usually sunny France) may click on the following pictures to reach a few series of eBooks.

        

Could Global Warming and World’s Changes be Good News for #Europe ?

The good news for Europe, with global warming, climate disorders and other world’s changes, is that they have tourism industry and fashion designers South, tourists and renewable energy Industry North, and Chinese Clothes available everywhere.

So, What Now ?

Memorial Day is delicious in Paris, with enjoyable sunshine after the rain in Cannes. Monday is off (more or less, the French managed to turn the “May Bridges” into some bureaucratic nightmare with a French touch of “dialogue social”).

Finger, Moon and Invisible Hand(s) at Work in Montréal …

Not all who protest for the moon deserve it, not all who ask with fingers raised deserve to be heard, but no invisible hand at work should remain unwatched because winds of change always blow in unexpected places from unexpected directions.

Bad News from the Stars (Star Wars ?) in #Chicago and Bad Weather in #Cannes

Crisis against G8 in Camp David, missiles against NATO in Chicago and cold rain against the Festival in Cannes : windy Monday, and another Bee Gees died, on top of it all. As if it were not enough with Marilyn having gone West to Palm Springs, California …

Facebook stays at IPO pricing $38 (meaning investors value the company over $ 100 billion), G8 leaders drop their tie for an informal dinner at Camp David and a US (private) spaceship should fly in space again. Maybe the world is going back to normal ?

#Avengers and #Cannes Movie #Stars in #France, now. #Normal (Hard)Working Men and Women too.

Many French people enjoy a May Day off, or even another 4-day week-end “à la française”. Cinema lovers may have decided to go to Cannes with a view to see or meet global stars at the “Festival”. Some normal people #InRealLife just work in Paris.

Political Business as usual in #Greece, #France, #Europe

Elections are over, let’s prepare next elections … Politics as usual in Greece and France. Europe should overcome, as usual, whatever the Greeks and French may invent to stimulate democracy, this time. Business as usual, for two centuries, or milleniums.

C’est la #Crise #Fini #Normal ! So What Now in #Paris #France #Europe ?

Crossroads, bloody crossroads … No need to read Freakonomics, IMF reports or the proposals and promises of the previous, current or next election campaign to understand why the French (and their building and civil works companies) prefer roundabouts …
