Why no "Climate Hot Map" tracking and tabulating unfolding extreme weather events?

I just mentioned this in another post as a side thought, but I want to make it, it's own thread because it actually been bugging me for decades.

Why is there still no blogs dedicated to tracking and tabulating extreme weather events?  
Seems to me the thing would be getting tens of thousands of visits.
Might even produce some revenue if the group wanted.

HotMap, http://www.climatehotmap.org looks like someone's great idea that got set up, but 2011 is the last up date - and it was all about explaining the situation and I guess a site map.  They started see http://www.climatehotmap.org/global-warming-locations/lake-tanganyika-tanzania-africa.html but then it stopped.

It's good, but it doesn't follow up, record and or tabulate actual events as they unfolded these past years, let alone decades.  
Hotmap looks like it's a great template - something could be built around it fairly easily (seems to me).

It boggles my mind that nothing like that exists.
If one does please let me know.
and why are they so hard to find?

  • Then again, perhaps the proper question would be, why so little interest?
  • Heh, it does get quiet here doesn't it? I think a big reason is that there's so many things people worry about right now, climate seems less in-your-face important compared to everything else. Hell, I'm writing this as a white supremacist is ascending to the throne over on the other side of the Atlantic. Most of the stuff we'd talk about here is bad news, and doing any kind of activism like that gets heavy (and we might eventually run out of stuff to discuss).
    As for me personally, I'd be more active myself, but... well, I don't really know enough about climate to really add a lot of insights to what's going on, I'm better suited for countering antivaccine and alt-med nonsense. I've been thinking about moving my career away from medical biotech and more towards biofuel science, but the job market's pretty crap already... :/
  • Yeah, he's in there now and one of the very first things that happens is that the White House Website on Climate Change comes down.  Bandwidth is a great problem, I got into the health care thing a little this cycle, but it's over my head.  My life has been more about learning Earth's Science and Climate Science and in that field I feel somewhat confident and I know how to find information to supplement all I don't know.  Allocation of limited time and energy - that is the big issue.  Hopefully a lot, lot, lot more people will be join in.

  • Hate to be a tease, but I'm still a bit busy. Just want to say that I've come across sites that track records and extreme events. Next time I find them I'll post links.
