An overview of how I made the best prompts for climate change and the environment

Life imitates Art | Art Imitates Life

Every artist has their own way of giving colors to their thoughts. All these thoughts have an inspiration, glimpses of a journey, and the experiences they have gathered throughout. When the time to give these thoughts a meaning arrives, some deliver it through the strokes of a paintbrush, some add music to their imagination, and some scribble down the pages of a dairy.

One can romanticize their life with nature. Like life, nature also has its different stages depicting humans’ journey through time.

I, being an art enthusiast, was excited when I was first assigned this task. I was thinking of a number of things so that I can come up with something new and innovative. But somewhere down the line, I was utterly confused. I was thinking about how to start!

It was at that moment, that a song popped up in my YouTube playlist. A song that was known to all. “Bella Ciao”

The recent Netflix series “La Casa De Papel” or “Money Heist” had a huge impact on the television industry. The robbers in the series have worn the mask of Salvador Dalí. 

There, I finally got the inspiration I needed!

I started looking up some of the artworks of Salvadore Dalí and was mesmerized. Hence, I tried to inculcate nature with painting but in the style of a particular artist, and voila! I came up with new and innovative ways to do that.

The central thought of merging nature with painting was to show how the future can turn out for us if we fail to restore whatever little is left of nature.

Humans are trapped in the vicious cycle of life and they often tend to overlook how nature protects them. But the never-ending want for materialistic life and the upgrowing capitalism has created an imbalance. An imbalance, that is gradually increasing.

Pollution, deforestation, and the emission of greenhouse gases caused the depletion of the atmospheric layers. This, in turn, has led to frequent climate changes with occasional outbreaks of hurricanes and tornadoes. Floods, famine, and diseases are spreading like a wildfire. Human lives are at stake.

Preserving nature or taking up the initiative for a better future is in the hands of humans. A little initiative from our end can create a difference with a more secure and sustainable future.

Let us take a pledge to restore the innumerable gifts that mother nature has offered. Let us be grateful and not take things for granted.

Damage Done by Hurricane Ian & Fiona

Impact of Hurricane Ian on Florida 

Hurricane Ian was a Category 4 Atlantic hurricane that uprooted Florida from the core with winds raging up to 150mph. This catastrophic hurricane hit Florida economically by US$28-63 billion. From electricity outages that lasted for countless hours to 126 fatalities in Florida, the aftermath of Ian is becoming more vivid as the storm slowly regressed.

Satellite image of Hurricane Ian as it slowly gained strength and approached Florida
Flooding and electricity outages caused huge destruction in Florida

Approximately 2.5 million people were forced to take refuge in other places due to extensive flooding and torrid rainfall in parts of Florida. Rescue teams are going from one door to another in search of people that faced the wrath of Ian. Officials are still trying to aid those distressed people who lost their homes during the storm.

Massive rainfall submerged roads and caused flooding in Florida 

Florida is in dire need of support; Rescue missions are being carried out

Rescue missions are carried out via boat and aircraft. Ian shook the whole of Florida and covered the roads with ruins of broken-down buildings and uprooted trees. 

FEMA administrators stated that they are looking at both immediate and long-term needs. Restoration of electricity and safe drinking water is the primary requirement as of now and hence, adequate measures have been taken to meet the needs of the people in Florida. 

Coastal areas got no time to brace themselves

Coastal areas were hugely affected by the stormy winds of Ian

Ian originated initially from the North Atlantic region with an intensity of 70kt as a Category 3 storm. Slowly it progressed to a Category 4 storm with winds sweeping at a speed of 120mph, 140 mph and finally reaching 155mph respectively.

A storm of this magnitude stopped communications, collapsed bridges, and caused the water level to rise up to 18 feet in the coastal areas causing massive flooding. 2,160 flights were canceled, and ports were evacuated for safety reasons. 

Communication ceased as the water level rose due to rainfall and landslides.

Bridges collapsed; Communication stalled

The gradual strengthening of Ian caused landslides and rainfall that measured up to 12-20 inches in Florida. A huge number of people are still trapped in the floodwaters.

Tropical storms were observed at the Key West International Airport which recorded the third-highest storm surge after 1913. About 15 aircraft were damaged in South Florida. 

Ian’s offshore impact led to the gradual pulling out of an extensive amount of water from the Tampa Bay region. Lakes overflowed in certain parts of Central Florida. The anxiety and rush of people to save their lives led to innumerable accidents like getting drowned, and electrocution.

Impacts Of Hurricane Fiona On Florida

Satellite image of hurricane Fiona on the afternoon of September 22, 2022.

Fiona slams; Floridians face the wrath of nature

Hurricane Fiona was a Category 4 Atlantic Hurricane that created havoc in the Puerto Rico region and gradually shifted its way to Turks and Caicos Island. 

Starting as a Category 2 storm and winds raging to 115mph, Fiona later turned into a Category 4 hurricane with rainfall that measured up to 30 inches and caused flooding in the Puerto Rico region.

Collapsed buildings and ruins along the coastal region of Florida

Severe rainfall and stormy winds caused collapsing of buildings and electrical outages in various parts of Puerto Rico, which lasted for more than 48 hours and approximately 3.3 million people were without electricity, by the time Fiona slammed the island. Although electricity was restored, still the overall situation of the island is still bleak.

Destruction causes the downfall of the economy

Fiona, caused the downfall of the economy of the island by $10 billion dollars.
Only a handful of people are getting clean water supplies at the moment. 

Severe rainfall and stormy winds ceased communications in parts of Highway 10 and many people were found trapped inside several buildings in Utuado. 

To support the families affected by Fiona, an EDF grant of $5,000 was issued to provide clean water and other emergency commodities to the communities and churches in the Puerto Rico district. 

Houses were demolished and locals were forced to relocate

After storming through Puerto Rico, Fiona changed its course and continued north-west along the eastern parts of the Dominican Republic causing landslides, destruction of roads buildings, and uprooting of trees. Almost 12,000 people were forced to relocate while 2,500 homes were badly affected. 

Homeless people taking refuge to safeguard themselves from Fiona

Fiona’s winds ranged up to 88mph with waves reaching up to 40-foot. Meteorologists conducted Fiona to be one of the strongest hurricanes ever witnessed with a central pressure of 931.6millibars. 

Fiona vs Ian

The most upgraded forecasting tools considered Fiona to be stronger than Ian. Approximately four days prior to the lasing out of Fiona, it was estimated that Atlantic Canada would record the highest risk. However, before Ian made its way through Florida, the route in which it progressed was still unclear. 

Fiona traversed through the Atlantic with higher pressure and slowly made its way toward Atlantic Canada. The numerical calculation predicted Ian to be more chaotic and distinct.  

Rescue missions are being carried out, all hands at deck

Hurricanes are usually caused by heat waves and depression caused by the ocean bed. The gradual depletion of the atmospheric layers is making them potent with each passing day.
As the rescue mission still continues, it is unclear how many individuals are still missing. Hospitals and other healthcare facilities are facing significant pressure on them as the number of injured people and death toll is rising.

Come and let’s join the affected people by providing them with food, clothes, and other necessary items. Let us all help them for a better future in such hard times.

Hurricane Ian makes Landfall

Hurricane Ian started as a Category 3 storm and soon gained frequency to turn into a Category 4 hurricane with winds raging at 150mph, causing massive damage in Florida. The hurricane gained its strength after crossing the Gulf of Mexico and entered Florida with a speed of 130mph, turning into a Category 4 storm.

Recently, it has further strengthened and is approaching a devastating storm with maximum sustained wind speeds of up to 155 mph before it makes landfall.


The eye of the storm is predicted to make rainfall in parts of Florida later on Wednesday. Storms and winds are expected to be at hurricane force throughout the state. Based on public advisories, about 2.5 million people are requested to evacuate on an urgent basis.

Hurricane researcher, Brian McNoldy of the University of Miami, stated that it was unclear to them as to where Ian would crash aground. So, some of the locals of Tampa Bay and St.Petersburg guarded their windows and doors with sandbags. They have taken all necessary means to protect themselves from the life-threatening Hurricane Ian. 

Speedy winds swept through the entire region causing tremendous damage to innumerable health facilities. This caused power outages and cut off roads in Pinar del Rio region. Stormy winds destroyed Cuba’s world-famous tobacco belt in the La Robaina region. The province is also noted for the production of Finca Robaina cigars.

The whole province including Artemesia and Mayabeque fell victim to the hands of Ian, luckily no deaths were reported.

Ian Strengthens: Landfall in Florida

Ian is said to be the second most powerful hurricane ever recorded in the United States as per the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. Winds blowing at a speed of 150mph swarmed through the southwestern coast of Florida and caused landslides in the Cayo Costa region and knocked out power in more than 1.8 million homes.

Later on Wednesday, Ian was gradually losing its strength and became a Category 3 storm with a maximum speed of 95mph with a torrential downpour. The hurricane center warned the locals of storm surges and also mentioned that water may rise up to 18 feet in certain coastal areas. Certain parts of Florida are projected to see rainfall of 12 to 20 inches.

Hurricanes are usually characterized by low-pressure and tropical cyclones rotating within a closed atmosphere. Hurricane Ian originated from the North Atlantic(current basin) with an intensity of 70kt.

A certain section of the Florida Power & Light Co. was destroyed by the stormy winds. Approximately 2,160 flights were canceled and the seaports of Jacksonville, Port Canaveral, and Tampa regions have been evacuated.

People residing in Florida pay the highest amount of home insurance in the Nation. The hurricane could cost the insurance industry claims of $20-$40 billion resulting in a huge loss in the economy.

Tornado Alert: Ian, now a Category 4 storm caused havoc in Florida

Records stated the hurricane is expected to spread inwards, towards the center of the Florida Peninsula, and will persist throughout Thursday.

Ian has gained strength and is now a Category 4 storm. Winds were blowing at a speed of 120mph at 4 am, which increased to 140mph at 5 am. The current speed of Ian is 155 mph and the center of the storm is still onshore. Chances of heavy rainfall and even flooding can be predicted over the next several hours in the southern part of the Florida Peninsula.

Strong winds are drawing in water. A storm of this magnitude can cause massive destruction in Fort Myers which is situated on the right, beside the center of the storm.

Tornado alerts have been issued by the Government, people are hereby requested to stay indoors and guard themselves.

National Weather Service of Florida Issues Safety Protocols

The National Weather Service of Florida requested everyone to keep an eye on the forecast updates and monitor the local media for any upcoming news. They also issued a number of safety protocols for the residents to safeguard themselves when the storm hits. Some of the protocols include:

  1. Use the FEMA app to receive alerts and warnings.
  2. An emergency medicine kit should be kept handy for urgent use.
  3. Stock up on groceries and other essentials.
  4. Avoid stagnant water and down power lines. Avoid driving.
  5. Keep a backup of an alternative power source in case of an electricity outage. People who are using generators as a substitute for electricity, please operate them outside your homes and safeguard yourself.

President Joe Biden Stands By Florida

President Joe Biden approved the Florida government’s Ron DeSantis’s request for an emergency declaration. This declaration includes FEMA taking advanced precautions by the state in case the situation worsens. 4,000 Florida National Guards are supporting his cause. 

FEMA is aiding people in Georgia, Florida, and Alabama with 52 ambulances, 100 paratransit seats, 117 generators, and 128,000 gallons of fuel.

A base camp has been set up in Maxwell Airforce Base to help the locals with 3.5 million liters of water, 3.7 million meals, and almost 6,380 cots. 

Apart from this, Surge Capacity Force members are rostered for additional support. Incident Management Teams are deployed to Atlanta and Tallahassee. Three Mobile Communications Operation vehicles are there to provide any assistance the State needs. 

Along with that, a team of U.S Army Corps of Engineers is progressing toward Craig Field as advanced precautionary measures.


The gradual depletion of the atmospheric layers is causing hurricanes to become more potent in the coming decades. Hurricane Ian is a stark reminder of this impact and the gradual strengthening of this storm at breakneck speed is giving the coastal areas little or no time to take preventative measures.

A small initiative from your end can help innumerable distressed people. Come and stand by the affected people by providing them with food, clothes, and other amenities. You can also help them emotionally, mentally, or financially with the very little you have.

Flooding, Climate Change, & Pathogens in Pakistan

Flooding in Pakistan: Death Toll Rises

Severe rainfall triggered the most devastating flood in Pakistan’s history. It swept through the villages, collapsed homes, and killed approximately 1,500 people out of which 552 were children. The loss of land and life is incomparable. 

Recent news declared almost 8 million people were forced to relocate for the damage caused. Massive rainfall resulted in a sudden rise in the water level of many rivers. This caused dams to overflow and destroyed homes, buildings, schools, hospitals, and other healthcare facilities. 

Stagnant Water: A Breeding Hub for Pathogens

Life-threatening diseases are spreading like wildfire throughout the whole of Pakistan. Some of these diseases include Cerebral Malaria and there is no option for treatment or cure. Other than this, stagnant water has become the breeding place for pathogenic diseases like typhoid, leishmaniasis, respiratory infections, scabies, cholera, diarrhea, dengue, and a variety of eye and skin diseases. 

The situation all over Pakistan is bleak. The hard-hitting areas are the ones where children were already suffering from malnourishment. They live an unhealthy lifestyle with limited access to clean water, food, and sanitation. 

Parts of the Country are Still Submerged Underwater; Government Reluctant 

Certain parts of the country still remain to be underwater including Eastern Balochistan and the southern province of Sindh. A huge number of people affected by this devastating flood are seeking refuge in the constituency of foreign minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.

The Government, the National Disaster Management Authority is not playing an active role in this situation. Hence, the flood-affected victims are not getting adequate support in this time of distress. The locals stated that if the Government fails to aid them now, the future will witness a series of life-threatening diseases. The flood water may take up to 6 months to recede, a recent survey stated.  

Refugees in the Hard-Hitting Areas

Pakistan serves as the refugee ground for approximately 1.3 million Afghans. 800,000 were residing in more than 45 majorly hit districts out of 80 severely affected locations.

The UNHCR conducted that the majorly affected districts included certain parts of Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and Sindh provinces. The UNHCR has also arranged immediate funding and assistance with medical supplies and commodities to help the victims in this crucial time. 

Sherry Rahman, Pakistan’s climate change minister told in an interview that richer countries should stand by poor countries that face the vagaries of nature due to climate change. 

Massive Aid Operations Required 

According to BBC news, Rahman said that richer countries burn fossil fuels to establish a “kingdom come”.  

The flood has highlighted a stark contrast between countries that are the largest contributors to climate change to the countries that bear the impact. Pakistan is the producer of 1% of global greenhouse gas, but its geographical location makes it vulnerable to sudden climate change. 

Rahman admitted that the country lacks appropriate technology and money. She is seeking flood aid from the US, Turkey, and Qatar. Rahman also stated that in order to make the infrastructure of Pakistan resilient to sudden weather changes, a lot of international support is required. 


When a certain country or province faces the wrath of nature, along with the downfall in the economy, apart from humans, local flora and fauna suffer great loss. The devastation of houses and communities results in the scarcity of food, shelter, and clean water supply. Malnourishment and death spur up the scale cutting off proper medical supply.

Come and support the flood-affected victims in Pakistan by donating food, clothes, and other commodities. Or you can support them financially, emotionally, or mentally with the little you have in this hard time.

Hurricane Fiona Slams: Devastation Increases

Hurricane Fiona Slams: Devastation Increases

Hurricane Fiona has shifted its course to Turks and Caicos islands after devastating Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. Records highlight that there was a downpour of approximately 30 inches in Puerto Rico, courtesy of Fiona.

It began as a Category 2 storm followed by torrid rainfall and turbulent winds that raised up to 115mph. The hurricane is expected to change course by Thursday and hit areas around Bermuda. It is categorized as a life-threatening Category 3 or 4 hurricane. 

Power Outage Still Continues in Puerto Rico

Official records declared almost five fatalities. Hence, the locals are advised to stay indoors and avoid travel. The flooding is expected to rise. The majority of the damage and landslides were caused by local buildings and trees collapsing. It led to massive power outages in various parts of Puerto Rico for more than 48 hours.

PowerOutage.US stated that more than 1.1 million customers were without any power supply for a long time. Electricity was restored in many places by 6:30 am Tuesday. Nevertheless, almost 80% of the island still remains in the dark. 

President Biden Announces Disaster Declaration

The lashing out of Fiona is estimated to bring down the economy of the island by $10 billion. The Governor of Puerto Rico, Pedro Pierluisi said that President Joe Biden has declared to supply additional federal funds and support to the devastated territories in this hour of emergency.  

The landslides, flooding, and power outages have damaged the filtration plants. Only a handful of locals are getting clear water supply at the moment. 

Puerto Rico National Guard To The Rescue

The Puerto Rico National Guard rescued many people from an old-age home in Cayey. Nearly 21 bedridden and aged people were removed to safety. 450 active national guard members are working day and night. Additionally, 59 other people and 13 pets were rescued from a community in Mayaguez. 

Latest updates declared that the center (eye) of the storm has now shifted from the northern coast of the Dominican Republic, about 130 miles, near the southeast region of Grand Turk.

Winds are now blowing at a speed of 100mph with heavy precipitation. The tail of Fiona is still evident in major parts of Puerto Rico and murky rainfall of 4 to 8 inches still persists in that territory. 

A Flash flood emergency was declared in certain areas due to the sudden rise in the water level of many rivers including The Rio Grande de Arecibo. The water level rose approximately 13 feet in only an hour. 

Bridge Collapses, Communication Ceases In Utuado

A huge number of people were trapped near a collapsed bridge in Utuado. This is a part of Highway 10 and acts as a link to access the University of Puerto Rico and The Utuado Campus. This bridge was reconstructed by the National Guards after Hurricane Maria in September 2017. Nearly $3 million was spent.


Hurricanes are considered to be enormous heat waves. It comprises wind and rain which rise from the ocean due to depression. Depletion of air and environment are making hurricanes more potent and frequent. 

Fiona is supposed to pick up a higher pace in the coming days as it moves further north and north east. Please come forward and stand by those in this moment of distress. Join together to donate food, clothes, and other commodities or help them financially, mentally, and emotionally in such trying times.

Tropical cyclones are the most devastating weather phenomenon and the IPCC’s 2018 “Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5°C” there’s evidence that extreme tropical events are likely to worsen. With machine learning, producing skillful forecasts becomes possible provided the right data. We can create a deep neural network that fully utilizes recurrent and convolutional layers using the IBTrACS database and the NCEP/NCAR Surface Temperature imagery. This artificial intelligence is accompanied by a standard web application that can be used operationally to produce forecasts. The study develops under a permissive license that allows reuse and maintains open source. The study follows the I18n internationalization format to assist with global dissemination. The model produces near-instant track and intensity forecasts for Atlantic, Indian, and Pacific Ocean tropical cyclones and has shown skill over the NHC’s statistical baseline for Atlantic tropical storms. One of the goals of the research is to provide both professional and amateur meteorologists access to extreme tropical cyclone forecasts to assist with emergency scenarios.

A Deep Recurrent Neural Network to Forecast the Intensity and Trajectory of Atlantic Tropical Storms

J1.6A A Deep Recurrent Neural Network to Forecast the Intensity and Trajectory of Atlantic Tropical Storms

More Wednesday, 9 January 2019: 9:45 AM North 124B (Phoenix Convention Center – West and North Buildings) Hammad Usmani, Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA Recorded Presentation The National Hurricane Center (NHC) and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) provide predictions for storms trajectories, intensity, and size. They create these predictions based on models that can be classified into 3 groups: dynamical, statistical, and ensemble. Classifications also include relative compute time required to create an output grouped as either early or late and forecast parameters such as trajectory, intensity, and wind radii. The most accurate models are late models that take upwards of 6 hours to produce an output whereas models that can produce an output in seconds are called early. Early models are crucial for emergency scenarios because of their timeliness. The statistical baseline models such as OCD5 are based on multivariate regressors that can explain a significant amount of variance. The performance for these methods can be augmented by incorporating more advanced statistical methods from deep learning such as recurrent neural networks. In this study, we research and implement the domain of machine learning and deep learning into Atlantic storm forecasting for both trajectory and intensity and evaluate them against the NHC standards. Previous research into machine learning to forecast tropical Atlantic storms includes a sparse recurrent neural network (Kordmahalleh, Sefidmazgi, & Homaifar, 2016) and an artificial neural network (Jung & Das, 2013) which achieved favorable results. Tropical system models created with deep neural networks can be utilized to develop more precise emergency planning. Because of this, there is a necessity for more accurate and timely models that can help reduce the amount of loss caused by tropical storms and hurricanes. The results of this study provide a reproducible bidirectional deep recurrent neural network implementing LSTM cells (BDRNN) forecasting both the trajectory and intensity of Atlantic storms utilizing training and testing data from the Atlantic hurricane database (HURDAT2). The model forecasts were evaluated based on 2017 data and indicated skill by performing better than the statistical baseline of OCD5. The BDRNN model can be used to provide improved decision support for emergency responses because accurate forecasts can be produced on demand. The study provides a promising framework for additional research that can incorporate satellite imagery and different domains such as the North Central Pacific.
