Global Climate Change: Record Heatwaves, “Firenadoes”, Giant Dust Storms and Earthquakes Are Just the Beginning

481

USA – August 7, 2018

Major changes are happening to our planet, in the Winter it gets very cold, and in the Summer it gets very hot. The experts are groping for answers and trying to assure us that what we are witnessing is the natural progression of “man-made climate change”. Some blame carbon dioxide levels, which have suddenly reached some sort of magical “tipping point” precipitating disaster. This explanation, however, has been received with a lot of skepticism.  No doubt temperatures are rising globally.  In July, Death Valley experienced “the hottest month ever recorded on the planet”.  In Europe, Saturday was being billed as Europe’s “hottest day ever”, and temperatures in Lisbon, Portugal were expected to top 106 degrees both Saturday and Sunday.  On the other side of the planet, a crippling drought in Australia is devastating farms “like a cancer”, and the weather has gotten so hot in North Korea that the government has declared “an unprecedented natural disaster”

This week, the North Korean government called record-high temperatures in the country “an unprecedented natural disaster” and said that country is working together to fight the problem.

An editorial published Thursday in Rodong Sinmun, the official newspaper of the ruling party, highlighted the difficulties that this long stretch of high temperature would cause in North Korea’s agricultural sector, specifically effecting crops such as rice and maize. The newspaper called for North Koreans to act as one and “display their patriotic zeal in the ongoing campaign for preventing damage by high temperature.”

In California, extreme heat and bone dry conditions continue to fuel some of the worst wildfires in the history of the state. A wildfire burning through Northern California became the state’s largest on record on Monday, scorching more than 283,000 acres, officials said.

It was unclear what caused the blaze, but the fire was one of more than a dozen burning amid record-setting heat waves in the drought-stricken state, according to Cal Fire. Tens of thousands of residents across California have been displaced by wildfires this season, Gov. Jerry Brown told reporters Saturday.

President Donald Trump declared a state of emergency in California on July 27, authorizing the Federal Emergency Management Agency to help firefighters working to respond to the disaster areas.

Of course there have been bad years for wildfires before, but unique to current climate conditions are so called “firenadoes” that pack 143 mph winds

The 143 mph winds turned heavy-duty high tension power line towers into twisted pieces of metal, uprooting and ripping the bark off trees.

 “This is historic in the U.S.,” Craig Clements, director of San Jose State University’s Fire Weather Research Laboratory, told BuzzFeed News. “This might be the strongest fire-induced tornado-like circulation ever recorded.”

Known as a pyrocumulus cloud, the ominous red weather formations usually occur over volcanic eruptions or forest fires when intensely heated air triggers an upward motion that pushes smoke and water vapor to rapidly rise. They can develop their own weather patterns, including thunderstorms with severe winds which then further fan the flames.

Elsewhere in the Southwest, drought continues to intensify, which has created enormous dust storms.

For example, check out what just happened to the city of Phoenix

A huge wall of dust enveloped the Phoenix metro area on Thursday during the second monsoon storm in a four-day span.

Officials at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport said flights were delayed or held until visibility improved.

National Weather Service (NWS) meteorologists said blowing dust in the Phoenix area brought near-zero visibility for drivers Thursday evening.

Certainly a dust storm is less destructive than a “fire tornado” in the short-term, but as we saw in the 1930s, a consistent pattern of giant dust storms can absolutely cripple a nation.

And let us not forget the tremors that have been increasing on the crust of our planet.

On Sunday, Indonesia was shaken by a magnitude 7.0 earthquake just 10km underground, according to the US Geological Survey …

A major earthquake on the Indonesian island of Lombok has killed at least 82 people, injured hundreds, and damaged buildings, sending terrified residents and tourists running into the streets while triggering a brief tsunami warning.

So why is all of this actually happening?

Of course the so-called experts have their explanations: the amount of carbon dioxide in the air is increasing, it’s true. But these scientists assure that our planet once had much higher levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere then we do today, and yet our planet appeared to have thrived under those conditions.

The mainstream media will continue to tell us that the changes to the earth we are witnessing are due to global warming, and that if we reverse course we can go back to how things were before. This is a lie. Large corporations and the government find it profitable to say so because today they have created a huge market for environmental equipment, trying to recoup investments in maximum profit. Although it’s clear for most that these national programs and international efforts in the form in which they exist are useless, this narrative persists. We can’t go back to normal conditions because the changes that are happening are far beyond our control.

Fundamental changes are happening to our planet, and this is just the beginning.  For now these changes are a minor nuisance to the majority of people, but pretty soon nobody will be able to ignore them.

Nowadays almost no one believes the pro-Government experts. Many scientists who disagree with the point of view of official experts have created their own groups and communities that try to understand the issues on their own.

One such group is the Global Earthquake Forecaster’ Ditrianum. The site, run by new age earthquake researcher Frank Hoogerbeets, points to the planetary alignment this week as a cause for concern. He warns that a MEGA-EARTHQUAKE could strike between August 9 as a planetary alignment forms.

According to him Mercury, Earth and the Sun will be perfectly aligned this week, with Mars pulling on our planet from the other side of the galaxy.

Mr Hoogerbeets claims he uses a Solar System Geometry Index (SSGI) which “is the computation of a dataset for a specific time-frame of values given to specific geometric positions of the planets, the Moon and the Sun”.

He added: “After three years of observations, it became clear that some planetary geometry in the Solar System clearly tends to cause a seismic increase, while other geometry does not.”

In a rather outlandish prediction on his website, he states: “From the 7th to the 13th seems more critical with three planetary alignments, including Sun-Mercury-Earth on the 9th, which could trigger a mid 6 to 7 magnitude earthquake from the 9th to the 11th.”

While the researcher has not given an indication of where the tremor might hit, the consequences could be devastating, as a magnitude seven quake would be as powerful as the one which has just hit Lombok, Indonesia, killing at least 141 people.

The quake struck the popular tourist destination at 6.47am local time (2347 BST) and its epicenter 50km north-east of the city of Mataram, which has a population of 319,000.

A tsunami warning has been issued in regards to the quake, which occurred at a depth of 10 km (6.2 miles), the Indonesian Meteorological Agency said.

The latest quake follows a similar disaster exactly one week ago which killed 17 people.

But experts have dismissed Mr Hoogerbeets, saying that there is no way earthquakes can be predicted.

John Bellini, a geophysicist at the US Geological Survey (USGS) has said: “We can't predict or forecast earthquakes.

"Sometimes before a large earthquake you'll have a foreshock or two, but we don't know they're foreshocks until the big one happens.”
