Thank you Murch for the post and dancedwithwolves for the screenies. Phone not cooperating on the site links. This is really interesting, especially
in light of the fubar weather patterns all over since this past winter.
I don't care what the causes of crazy weather are (whether caused by humans, regular long-cycle, solar system changes, galactic equator effect,
haarp, algae blooms, gmo's, demons from the 13th dimension, the matrix programmers having some fun, etc.) - what ai care about is what I see and have
seen happening, and figuring out where it's leading.
A warm winter in Chicagiland followed by a 3-month absolute drought with typical daytime highs between 95-105. The few rains we've had have been
short and not-much, but accompanied by 80 mph winds, hail, and Texas-style lightning every half second. We've finally gotten a decent amount of rain
the last couple weeks, and today was the first just "normal" rain without all the "end-of-days" stuff to go along with it lol. But young trees are
mostly finished, and many large mature trees have died, or have shed anywhere from 20% to 90% of their leaves.
One year like this - no big deal, weaker trees die, stronger survive, and the next year they're extra healthy because their roots have dug so deep.
However, what if -again, don't care the cause(s)-this is year 1 of a 60 year cycle? Or what if the current patterns are enough to keep tipping the
scales / domino effect?
The more we waste time, thoughts, and resources mindleessly arguing this out as pea-brained left/right political dum-dums, the less we focus on the
effects and what to do to cope with them. Eventually, we'll have cleaner energy, etc., but not soon enough if that's the problem. So let tech
advances come in due time. For now, why not think more about what we're going to do when/ if xyz happens?
