California is warm, has drought and fires while other half of nation freezes, very wet: We are having a very cold fall. It is more like winter where I live. I used to live in California during the previous cold cycle of the 1970’s. It was cold and wet back then. This time around, California is still hot and dry but that won’t last much longer. But due to the fires and hysteria, the DNC is screaming that we have to make the world much colder to keep Southern California happy. I have many disputes with ‘climate scientists’ (sic) and one of them is ‘how to interpret weather patterns.’
The count of lost structures in both Southern California fires climbed to nearly 180, authorities said, and that number seemed certain to rise. The large mobile home community of Seminole Springs, in the rugged Santa Monica Mountains north of Malibu, appeared devastated.
Back when vast forests blanketed the Great Lakes states, there were epic, huge forest fires during dry cycles like the 1890’s. This was fixed by cutting down large sections of forest and replacing this with farms.
About 300,000 people statewide were under evacuation orders, most of them in Southern California.
There are only three sources of fires: volcanoes, lightning…and humans. Humans changed the earth’s ecosystems greatly back when humans discovered how to build fires many thousands and thousands of years ago. This ability utterly changed how humans ate, lived, our territory suddenly could expand during Ice Ages and we lived longer.
Gov. Jerry Brown said he is requesting a major-disaster declaration from President Donald Trump that would make victims eligible for crisis counseling, housing and unemployment help, and legal aid.
So, in between screaming that California is going to impeach Trump based on zero charges, they also want Trump to save them.
Drought, warmer weather attributed to climate change, and the building of homes deeper into forests have led to longer and more destructive wildfire seasons in California. While California officially emerged from a five-year drought last year, much of the northern two-thirds of the state is abnormally dry.
Democrats totally run California. They have policies that make forest fires worse. They don’t care. It used to be, people were put into work to create ‘fire breaks’. I remember fire breaks. I knew people who worked to create fire breaks. Fire breaks were of greatest importance especially in dry places like Southern Arizona.
All this was wrecked by ecologists who want raw nature. Well, welcome to Mother Nature: she is very dangerous and powerful! Many humans decided to move deep into the hillsides in California. This is utterly insane! When it rains a lot, these hills turn into massive mudslides. When it is dry, they are infernos.
“Things are not the way they were 10 years ago. … The rate of spread is exponentially more than it used to be,” said Ventura County Fire Chief Mark Lorenzen, urging residents to evacuate rather than stay behind to try to defend their homes.
All California cities expanded into the steep hillsides. I forgot to mention, the other destroyer in California are earthquakes. The most vulnerable in an earthquake are buildings built on basically mud foundations and steep hillsides. Both are very dangerous and the poor live in the flat mud areas and the rich live as high on the hills as possible. Both are building in fatal areas.
This morning, most of the USA is below freezing. Only Florida is warm, even California is cool. The temperatures are deep winter temperatures, not early November. This is ‘global warming’ at its stupidest: it is cold. Very cold.
Here is a map showing temperature departures for today: it is cold, very cold. Spots in Florida and along the West Coast are warmer than usual but only a few places. The super cold band across the entire Midwest all the way down to Mexico City, are very, very below normal.
Alaska never had any Ice Ages, technically speaking. It was never glaciated except for the mountains.
Chumpsky is a linguist, not a climate scientist. Climate Scientists are mostly trained seals who can’t see reality anymore, the few who do see that the wolf is in sheep’s clothing point out the painfully obvious that global warming isn’t global, it is confined mainly to equatorial places that never, ever froze in any Ice Age. The ability to figure out obvious things vanishes when indoctrination is the goal of ‘education’.
No Ice Ages began in South America or Africa. Antarctica always has been in an Ice Age for the last three million years. The places where Ice Ages wax and wane are North America and Europe. Period. So, to determine if we are going into an Ice Age, we look at the epicenter of all Ice Ages: Hudson Bay.
Normal Interglacial ice is over the North Pole and Greenland. Greenland has melting during Interglacials to the point, things grow seasonally there though the massive glacier covering most of Greenland has endured nearly as long as Antarctica’s glaciers.
The DNC is, via offering freebies to lots of people, is determined to impose ‘global warming’ laws on us that will literally kill millions of citizens in colder climate areas like where I live. The phobia that we are roasting to death will be the ax that will chop off millions of lives on the chopping block of ideology just like Mad Madame Mao killed many millions of Chinese.
