I think you are perceptive to note the current climatic fluctuation. Starting last fall out hear near the south left coast, things have really
changed. It began with major T-storm activity, way above normal, in mid-August (energy peak), and then it snowed at low elevation in mid-November,
which never happens. Subsequently, the region has seen the wettest winter on record, and still hasn't dried out.
There may be many factors involved, including the ones you've mentioned, and the phenomena is global. It could be linked to magnetic pole migration,
and the solar cycle, as well. Europe has had scorching summers and major flooding in the last couple years. The snow has disappeared from the summit
of Kilimanjaro in Africa for the first time in recorded history. Massive wildfires have blazed across Australia. A giant iceberg has broken loose
from Antartica and collided with a humongous glacier sticking out into the ocean, breaking off several miles of it.
The big question is, what does this current activity signify? Is it just a bump in the normal weather cycle, or are we seeing a fundamental shift in
weather patterns that will have far reaching consequences for mankind. I think we better fill up our granaries and larders and batten down the
hatches, it might get worse before it gets better.
