Solar eclipse to cost American businesses $700 million in lost productivity

SOLAR ELIPSE

Monday’s solar eclipse will cost US companies $694 million in missed output, when employees take a break to watch the moon block the sun, according to outplacement and career transitioning firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas.

The company estimates are based on data from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

Monday’s eclipse will last nearly two-and-a-half minutes.

“There’s very few people who are not going to walk outside when there’s a celestial wonder happening above their heads to go out and view it,” said the firm’s Vice President Andrew Challenger.

He added that some people might take longer than three minutes, as they will need to prepare their telescopes or special viewing glasses or even take off for the day.

The overall figure uses average hourly wage data and the number of full-time employed workers older than 16.

“According to the BLS’ most recent American Time Use Survey in 2016, 82.8 percent of employed people worked on an average weekday. Additionally, according to the most recent data on flexible schedules from the BLS taken in 2004, 14.8 percent of the employed worked a shift other than a day shift,” the statement said.

However, Challenger said that this was still a small sum.

NASA Unveils Risky Plan to Try and Stop Yellowstone Supervolcano Eruption [VIDEO

 

Published on Aug 20, 2017

A NASA plan to stop the Yellowstone supervolcano from erupting, could actually cause it to blow… triggering a nuclear winter that would wipe out humanity.
Yellowstone currently leaks about 60 to 70 percent of its heat into the atmosphere through stream water which seeps into the magma chamber through cracks, while the rest of the heat builds up as magma and dissolves into volatile gasses. The heat and pressure will reach the threshold, meaning an explosion is inevitable. When NASA scientists considered the fact that a super volcano’s eruption would plunge the earth into a volcanic winter, destroying most sources of food, starvation would then become a real possibility. Food reserves would only last about 74 days, according to the UN, after an eruption of a super volcano, like that under Yellowstone. And they have devised a risky plan that could end up blowing up in their faces. Literally.

Wilcox hypothesized that if enough heat was removed, and the temperature of the super volcano dropped, it would never erupt. But he wants to see a 35% decrease in temperature, and how to achieve that, is incredibly risky. One possibility is to simply increase the amount of water in the supervolcano. As it turns to steam. the water would release the heat into the atmosphere, making global warming alarmists tremble.
