In a country where an even smaller percentage of the population gives a flying fuck about the environment, this is truly poetic justice.

The USA releases about twice as much greenhouse gases per person as Russia. Also since the start of the industrial revolution the USA has released about twice as much greenhouse gases per person in total than Russia.
In terms of contaminating your own (and other) countries with various toxic and radioactive stuff, I dont have any quantitative measure but between dirty mining, oil and gas extraction and refining processes and nuclear testing I'd say both countries get an F.
That's the saddest beach I've ever seen. And I was born in Jersey.
Bradford Beach in Milwaukee, WI might still be the ugliest in my book, but this one's a close second. From the looks of it though, that's pretty tiny hail compared to the pellets we had in the midwest.
I was walking down the street one time and it started to hail and I was like "ooh I better get under an awning.." by this point you couldn't see across the street but that's kind of normal. Then I was like "fuck it I'll stop inside and grab a beer." About 30 seconds later the little pellets turned into tennis and destroyed the awning I was under!
I've been on a couple cruises through the caribbean/Mexico and the area we went to in Columbia had, hands down, the worst beach I'd ever seen. And I live in Canada.
There's beach on both sides of the Tijuana River outlet into the pacific.
Read it as "Flesh hail storm" and expected falling naked people.
Before I was born my parents got caught in a hailstorm in the Oregon desert. The hail stones were the size of golf balls and I still remember seeing the inch-deep dents in the roof of their van when I was little.
This looks pretty bad but at least it's not life threatening.
The tennis ball ones I described above were probably the biggest I've seen, but they were few in a sea of many smaller ones. Maybe a month ago in Oregon I was on my bike and a steady barrage of hail the size of pinballs fell out of nowhere. My helmet had noticeable paint damage, hate to think if I was drinking beer and listening to Bon Iver in a park like every other portlander that day
Anything that is not freezing sub-zero temps is ok for the good ol russians.
"Most effective, Your Majesty. Will you destroy this, uh, Earth?"
"Later. I like to play with things a while... before annihilation."
I love hailstorms. They feel like the end of the world!
Or a really good deal on a hail damaged 2004 Jetta!! :)
