Southern China's extreme cold forces evacuation


www.cbc.ca

Freezing temperatures in southern China have forced 58,000 people from their homes and caused about $200 million Cdn in economic losses, the government said Wednesday.

The evacuation came after ice and sleet collapsed the roofs of more than 1,200 homes across the southern regions of Jiangxi, Hunan, Chongqing, Sichuan and Guizhou, the Ministry of Civil Affairs reported.

This has been reported on the Fragile Earth forum... but I'm making a thread in BAN as well..

Here is the reason....

With the Pole Shift going on and pointing more towards Russia, my belief now is that the weather patterns are changing in accordance with this shift... which is responsible for the massive kill of of wild life AND this crazy stuff going on in China....

Let me clarify.. its not that the pole shift is responsible for the weather pattern change.. but both are caused by the Solar activity.. at least that's my hypothesis

Good to know that we (UK) are not the only ones suffering from the cold. Is that selfish?

Well, we are overdue a glacial maximum. Maybe it's catching up with us.

Are you suggesting that a magnetic pole position shift is changing weather patterns, or that you believe the axis of earth's rotation is shifting?

The magnetic poles can move without any real impact on anything, and even a complete reversal of north and south would not really matter, as long as our planet retains its magnetic field.

There is no evidence of ANY change in the tilt of the axis of earth's rotation at all, so that can't be it either.

I think there are two things happening.. the magnetic pole shift.. and the Solar activity going on. Solar activity can have an effect on both the magnetosphere and the weather patterns...

So I think the two are both symptoms of the same thing....

I think China is seeing the results of messing with mother nature by seeding clouds during the Olympics.


Yu is one of 37,000 peasants enlisted by the Chinese government to help produce rain in parched areas. The 45-year-old farmer works with China's other trigger-happy rain men to water the crops, break up damaging hailstorms and put out forest fires. After a sandstorm blew through the capital in May, he lobbed shells and rockets skyward to coax rains that washed sand and grit from city streets.

Now Yu and the other rainmakers face their toughest challenge: making sure it stays dry for the opening ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. The idea is for the peasant gunners to work with meteorologists watching radar in the capital. Together, they will hunt pregnant rain clouds and pound them with rockets containing silver iodide. The hope is that any moisture will fall before the clouds can threaten the parade of athletes and lighting of the Olympic flame at the new National Stadium.

Don't fool with Mother Nature!!!!


"China has the largest rainmaking (operation) in the world," ahead of Russia and Israel, says professor Wang Guanghe, a 20-year rainmaking veteran at China's Meteorological Sciences Academy. "Each province reports results to us of between 10% to 25%" additional rainfall.

The Chinese government rarely shirks nature's challenge. It recently completed the $25 billion Three Gorges Dam, the world's largest, which was built despite the objections of environmentalists at home and abroad. Weather manipulation is an enthusiastic past-time for Beijing, possibly because so many of the country's Communist leaders are engineers.

The forecast calls for more rain. China's five-year plan urges an increase in man-made precipitation. Central planners want an additional 65 billion cubic yards a year — nearly enough to fill the Yellow River, the country's second-largest river.

China began cloud-busting in 1958. Now "it is increasing every year," says Wang, who cites the drought plaguing northern China as the main reason to fire rain-inducing shells or soar into the skies in cloud-seeding airplanes.


China is just messing around in ways that humans were never intended to do!! Perhaps this could be a little Karma payback as well.

That's a plausible explanation as well.

It is really wierd that the south is colder than the north in China, ice rain ,you know it makes daily life so inconvenient , hope the government can help the civilians to resist this disaster ...

Mr. Vukcevic has done a lot of work on the weather patterns and magnetic fields that you might be interested in. He gets into fights with Leif Svalgaard on a routine basis. Unfortunately I do not have the high level math and physics background to completely follow the battles.

Wow.....an interesting 1st week of 2011 indeed.

California is being hit with snow storms and Los Angeles is getting daily rain...

Temps in the mid west are spring like

We're about to have an ice storm this weekend in the south

The birds, the fish

My bet is on a pole shift
