So you don't believe that the climate is changing due to global warming. Well, let's take a closer look. Just yesterday, there were two areas of the
United States that experienced tornadoes where they very rarely do. In a suburb of Boston, just five miles from the city, they experienced a
devastating tornado that wiped out two miles of city. How often do they experience tornadoes? Well, they haven't had one since record-keeping began.
Denver saw three tornadoes yesterday as well.
Why did they experience these tornadoes and so late in the season? Because of the Arctic air that is being pulled so far south due to an out-of-whack
jet stream (I'll get into the why of the jet stream later). This is very odd and rare for a cold front of this magnitude to dip this far south in late
July. There is higher than average temperatures to the south of the front, so of course, they are clashing and bringing the extreme weather. But, that
doesn't explain the freak storm that struck a beach in California the other day when one man died and 12 others were injured by none other than a
single lightning bolt! Have you ever heard of such a thing? And in California of all places. They barely get rain, let alone a lightning storm.
Over the past couple of months alone, there have been freak hail storms (Japan, Spain), freak snow storms in June (Estonia, Russia and Scandinavia),
record rainfall throughout the Upper Midwest of US, extreme heat waves in Japan, China, western Europe, Central Asia and Mexico, severe flooding in
Alaska, record 24-hour rain fall totals in Georgia, Florida, and well...I could go on for a while, but you get the point. How can anyone deny that
extreme weather events are happening in a freaky way, much more than usual?
I finished writing a book called Fever Rising a couple of months ago about the problem of methane gas releasing into the atmosphere at dangerous
levels threatening our existence. After nearly two years of studying the issue and discussing it here at ATS, I decided it needed to be written. The
book does feature quite a few of my debates here at ATS and some quotes from members with permissions of course. The book is finally completed and
will be out soon, but after watching the news about the extreme weather events this week, especially the rare and deadly lightning strike in Cali, I
wanted to share some of the book with you. I dedicate a full chapter to the extreme weather events and why this is happening, well, IMO anyways. Here
is a part of that chapter that explains what is happening:
The extreme weather events have been picking up steam over the past few years, literally. It was hard for anyone to not take notice to the crazy
winter weather patterns that struck the United States over the winter of 2013-14. November arrived and so did Old Man Winter, and it never relented
for most of North America. The jet stream dipped far south over the country’s midsection bringing frigid cold temperatures as far south as Atlanta
while causing much warmer than normal temperatures in Alaska. The pattern began and never looked back until the middle of March, when temperatures
finally shot back up to balmy normal temperatures…right around freezing at 32 degrees.
The weather extremes are becoming the new normal, from super storms such as Sandy, to tropical tornadoes, snow in the desert, hurricane-force winds in
the UK, heatwaves shattering records in the southern hemisphere, to freak hail storms that rain down ice boulders. Most parts of the world are
experiencing some type of weather pattern that’s out of the ordinary.
I’m going to provide a brief summary of the why’s because I’ve gone into great detail on the causes of extreme weather in relation to the
dangerous gas theory throughout this book. Here’s a recap, in brief, step-by-step.
The temperatures are increasing due to rising methane levels trapping the sun’s heat;
The rising temperature is causing the moisture content and storm energy to increase;
More moisture results in much heavier rain, snow and flooding events;
The rising temperature has also caused an escalation of volcanic activity;
Rising volcanic activity in Indonesia is causing the jet stream to fluctuate;
The jet stream is causing dangerously warm weather to increase over Arctic ice;
The jet stream has also pulled frigid Arctic air deep into southern climate zones;
These clashing warm and cold fronts are causing extreme storm events;
The warm air over Arctic ice is causing an alarming amount of land ice to melt;
This land ice melting off Greenland is bringing extreme weather to northern Europe.
Here is an article from January of 2013 that talks about the wild weather that was the year 2012. It was extreme throughout that year, the United
States’ hottest year on record, and the severity of events continued to escalate throughout 2013.
Heat, flood or icy cold; extreme weather rages world wide
The New York Times, Jan. 10, 2013
By Sarah Lyall
WORCESTER, England — Britons may remember 2012 as the year the weather spun off its rails in a chaotic concoction of drought, deluge and
flooding, but the unpredictability of it all turns out to have been all too predictable: Around the world, extreme has become the new commonplace.
Especially lately. China is enduring its coldest winter in nearly 30 years. Brazil is in the grip of a dreadful heat spell. Eastern Russia is so
freezing — minus 50 degrees Fahrenheit, and counting — that the traffic lights recently stopped working in the city of Yakutsk.
Bush fires are raging across Australia, fueled by a record-shattering heat wave. Pakistan was inundated by unexpected flooding in September. A vicious
storm bringing rain, snow and floods just struck the Middle East. And in the United States, scientists confirmed this week what people could have
figured out simply by going outside: last year was the hottest since records began.
“Each year we have extreme weather, but it’s unusual to have so many extreme events around the world at once,” said Omar Baddour, chief of the
data management applications division at the World Meteorological Organization, in Geneva. “The heat wave in Australia; the flooding in the U.K.,
and most recently the flooding and extensive snowstorm in the Middle East — it’s already a big year in terms of extreme weather calamity.”
Such events are increasing in intensity as well as frequency, Mr. Baddour said, a sign that climate change is not just about rising temperatures, but
also about intense, unpleasant, anomalous weather of all kinds.
