Ugly time in New Orleans....

The pics below are a rainfall estimate for a 24 hr period ending this morning and secondly the current radar signature.   There is a lot more rain coming.  I've also read some news reports that the storm surge has gone over a levee in a disctrict.

A few maps...

Inches of rain are forecast in the heart of the American midwest drought over the next five days.   The orange blob at the bottom right is the precip from Isaac.

Warming up and staying warm for a while.

Speaking of Isaac, here is the current NHC track of Isaac:
Interestingly enough, the Euro is slower, stronger and more west with Isaac, smacking East Texas and Louisiana with it.

Corn and ethanol

Wonder why food and gas prices are still going up?? Corn being used for ethanol additives to gasoline. 40% of the US corn crop is used for ethanol production.   Imagine if that land was used for food production?   Both gasoline and food would be cheaper.   Remember, ethanol additives are done all in the name of Global Warming, err Climate Change, err Climate Disruption...

RPJ has a great analysis.   The killer graph though is this one:
