We are in trouble and the worst hasn’t started yet.

For those of you who are unaware South East Australia is currently experiencing severe drought conditions. The following image is a little old.



Source

Personally, I’m actually in a white area of that map and we have had no rain for more than 5 weeks. That’s a new record for here.

Worse yet, the 3 month outlook for long term average rainfall, looks grim.



Source

And even worse than that is, remarkably, this is all happening outside of an El Nino event. Currently we are under an El Nino “watch” with one due sometime later this year or early next year.

The impact is already severe with some farmers having to shoot their stock because they can’t afford to feed them, source. Farmers are also now allowed to cull populations of Kangaroos, source. I suspect the culls will continue and, more likely than not, increase.

The drought is obviously going to have an impact on fruit and veggies as well and predictions are for prices to skyrocket should no rain eventuate, source. For the average family I imagine this is going to add a fair amount of financial stress, but, and worse than that, if you’re vegetarian or vegan……just sayin.

Exactly how the upcoming fire season is going to play out is unknown, I can only suspect that it's not going to be good.

And what has caused all of this, well, personally I reckon it’s got little or nothing to do with AGW or CO2.

The culprits that no one seems to talk about;

Weakening Heliosphere.

Down about 25% and probably why the heliopause has been seen recently. Source here.

Weakening Magnetosphere.





Indeed projecting this forward in time would suggest zero dipole moment in about 1500-1600 years time.


LOL

Pole Shift.

Increasing Cosmic Radiation.

Up about 18% in 3 years!

I do realise that people are going to say that this is all accounted for and that CO2 in the long run is going to be by far the worst for our climate. But I’m not so sure about that because none of the above can be modeled accurately with respect to its’ effect on the climate.

Dude we have been getting these readings for maybe 40 years and only 20 of which have been able to take precise measurements.

I know this is hard to believe, but the World has survived much much MUCH worse than anything Humans could ever think to throw at it to mess it up. There is water locked beneath us in rock that is far larger than any of the lakes we know of today.

If you Auzzies invested as much time into Desalination plants as you do on beer, gun control, and racing silly make shift Subaru's around, none of this would be an issue.

interesting...

also, it's been raining the last 2 months like CRAZY during the driest months of the year here what the hell is going on? I was about to build an ark and wait for the floods to start

We have that down here, on occasion, but we have a special name for it.

We call it "weather".

Here in the US in Georgia we go through periods of severe drought all the time (at least during my 6+ decades here)
And each time everyone looks at it like it was the first one ever .

Hmmmm.

The gods must be angry.

I know.
Let's resume throwing virgins into volcanoes.
That'll work !!

Or...we could all move UNDERGROUND!


It's the only way...

The lakes are still full here in Texas and have not even noticed a drop in the water tables. Summer is basically over which means we can expect flooding even here in the North this fall and next as there is nothing to fill up. They were all but gone just a few years ago with a massive drought that lasted for a while. It was so bad the governor actually prayed for rain in public with people at one point. Then some time later a storm basically lasted forever here and filled up the lakes in about a weeks time.

It's called weather, people. We like to think we have our stuff figured out when it comes to it, because the predictability is nice, but we really have no idea what could happen at any given time.

These don't look like Subaru's

You people do realize that there are such things as records and science, so that increases and changes are proven and not just based on feelings??

It's like everyone on this site has only a first grade education.

It's a moisture shift, While you may be experiencing severe droughts, in the East Coast of US, they've been getting severe rainfalls!

Cycles are a changing to new cycles and they don't look good for world peace...

I love weather, its fascinating, however, seeing the shifts like I have, into more rainfall and less cooler winters / less snowfall is interesting and scary...

thanks for the info OP

hoping it's just an anomaly and return to normal soon.

bad droughts in Europe and parts of the US

dry in Vietman/Korea? I know North Korea is suffering.

drought somewhere every year. hard to say if this is exceptional or part of cycle but it's a shame either way.

The Earth is changing and people are not ready to change with it. Hunter-gatherers had a good handle on how to deal with that. Western progress allowed for populations of increasingly unwary, unprepared weaklings (hate to say it) build up. You're right, we haven't seen the worst of anything yet.

Its funny that you mention that. I was just thinking about an Army general at a press conference casually mentioning that we can change the weather in a chosen region, but at the expense of another region.

Just wish I could find that video.

Well, I'm not entirely clear on any cycle.





In comparing the two images above it can clearly be seen that our magnetosphere has not been as low as it is today for around 5000 years. And as it stands it is currently in rapid decline.

This is bad because, for one reason, it allows cosmic radiation to penetrate deeper into our atmosphere. That process and the implications thereof, as far as climate are concerned, are not understood well, if at all.

Additionally, that cosmic radiation propagates, among other things, Gamma & X-Rays. They are clearly bad.

According to Al Gore, the entire state of Florida should be underwater by now. Sharks in the street... that kinda thing.

Weather changes year to year. It always has.
