Indonesia....ground zero for an explosive-gas-induced world of fire. 22 ash-spewing volcanoes...endless torrential rains...numerous
earthquakes...landslides and land subsidence....fires and explosions...extreme weather events producing rare tropical tornadoes and day-after-day of
mass animal die-offs!
I'm sure with all this volcanic and seismic activity in Indonesia, there is an extremely high amount of methane and hydrogen sulfide gases releasing
from land fissures and the volcanoes themselves.
If you froze your ass off in North America this year or got wind-battered in the UK, you can thank Indonesia. The UK Meteorological Office came out
with a report in mid-February with some details on what they believed was the reason they were experiencing some of the most-harsh weather they had
ever seen, which included torrential rains and floods, hurricane-force winds, 30 to 60 foot waves splashing the coastline and intense storms. The
report said that torrential rains in Indonesia and the western tropical Pacific region were behind their winter of 2013-14 weather. The warmer
temperatures in the Indonesian region caused massive amounts of rain which caught up the jet stream throwing it out of whack. The caused the jet
stream to move much higher north in the Pacific well over Alaska bringing extremely warm temperatures there, which then swept down harsh polar
conditions over North America as the jet stream plunged south. As the jet stream moved out over the North Atlantic it surged well north again and
pulled much warmer than usual temperatures up over Greenland, which in turn then pounded the United Kingdom with extreme weather events.
The UK experienced a 50% higher-than-usual wet December and January of 2013-14. The winter before, they experienced several major snow events as well.
Also, earlier in the year 2013, a rare occurrence happened over Greenland called the Greenland Block where a large pocket of warm air came up from the
south in the Atlantic and parked itself over the ice-covered country for months, causing a lot of land ice melt. Greenland is still suffering
warmer-than-usual temperatures causing a dangerously fast-paced ice melt which is all just part of this chain reaction of runaway global warming.
The UK Meteorological Office report states that the reason the jet stream has been deflected so far north is because of the constant heavy rains
caused by the warmer temperatures of Indonesia. The rains pull storms in from the Pacific which deflects the jet stream. Consider that this is also
the region that was home to the most powerful hurricane that ever made landfill (since records have been kept) when Super Typhoon Haiyan blasted into
the Philippines in late 2013 with sustained winds over 200 mph.
The multitude of volcano and earthquake headlines dominated Indonesia as they have raged on for the past couple of years and they continue to increase
in intensity and frequency. But, they're not the only headlines making this island nation a truly frightening place to live. Massive rain amounts due
to the warmer temperatures that continue to warm from the increasing volcanoes has resulted in a wave of killer landslides and mudslides. Despite the
fact that Indonesia regularly suffers from floods due to the high amounts of rain during the wet season, the past couple of years reports much more
flooding. 2013 was one of the worst flooding years and the worst in five years and 2014 was expected to continue to worsen as more and more torrential
rain was predicted.
One other thing to note about Indonesia is that the nation ranks among the top regions of the world to undergo the most mass animal die-offs. It’s
becoming very common for thousands of fish to die-off in the rivers of Indonesia. There were four mass fish die-offs in rivers of this nation over a
two week period on the dates of Feb. 11, Feb. 2, Jan. 29, Jan. 27. Bird flu was also responsible for two massive die-offs of ducks during that two
Another weather phenomenon that swept over the island nation in 2012 was tornadoes. Although they aren’t unheard of in this country, they are rare
and barely ever kill people. Despite the lush tropical nature of the climate here and frequent powerful thunderstorms, tornadoes rarely develop. In
2012 there was a rash of them and they are becoming part of the norm in this country.
Aah yes...Indonesia...ground zero for hell on earth.
