A Decade of Drought Monitoring (click title to entry - thank you)

November 14, 2000
US Drought Monitor

The oddly interesting aspect of looking at a decade of drought is that the Climate Crisis impact is so very clear.  In 2005 the profound drought was absent.  That was the year of Katrina.  I believe that is THE YEAR when the ground level water vapor began its vertical movement in altitude.  The hurricane 'cycle' following 2005 would not be repeated and when closely examined the near shore storm came to roost. 

The intensity of the hurricanes diminished over the years and has been replaced with low "Cat Levels" with huge water content.  The most recent is 2011.  Hurricanes are a definite relief fact to drought.  This information of just one decade with the Climate Crisis taking its most profound reality in 2005 along with changes in temperatures and weather patterns not only validates the Climate Crisis, but, ends any arguments to the contrary.  I really need to write.  I need to compile all the information I have accumulated and end this hideous bantering by the USA Right Wing political idiots.

In 2005 the D4 drought area otherwise known as Exceptional was ZERO.

In 2011 is D4 is extensive at nearly 9% of the drought surface area. 

The term is Human Induced GLOBAL warming.  Taking a snapshot of dynamics is not a sincere diagnosis, but, when the entire of Earth's data is realized there is absolutely no doubt about the etiology of the warming or its existence as never before existed on this planet.

 UNISYS Water Vapor Image of North and West Hemisphere of Earth
(click here for 12 hour loop)                                      

The water vapor in these images from UNISYS has become dense over the past decade.  There was not that much water vapor in the upper troposphere as there is today.  There is far less water vapor at the surface of Earth than there was in 2005.  I am confident the blog contains images to that effect.

As the water vapor rises in altitude rather than existing in density on the surface of Earth, there is less water vapor available for hurricanes.  The heat normally transferred into the oceans no longer is transferred and the air mass becomes hotter.  When there is less water vapor on the surface of Earth, that does not mean the tragedy stops.  In examining the tornado records in correlation with surface water vapor density, it increases as the water vapor density increases in altitude.  See, the energy is still there.  Energy is fixed.  As the heat calories increase with the troposphere of Earth, the energy has to do somewhere and if there is no water vapor to accumulate the heat and becomes storms, the energy manifests in tornadoes. 

In 2006 there was a tornado that killed eight people in North Carolina.  Five years ago it happened.  The same year tornadoes increased in number and 'seasonal manifestation' and intensity.  The same year the water vapor at Earth's surface diminished.

GREENVILLE, N.C. - While spring (click here) is North Carolina's primary tornado season, Fall, and particularly the month of November, is a secondary tornado season for our state.
Last night's fatal twister in Davidson County was a tragic reminder of this fact.
And exactly five years ago yesterday, on November 16, 2006, you may recall the devastating Riegelwood tornado, a monstrous 300-yard wide EF3 twister that claimed eight lives in the tiny Columbus County community.
November 20, 2011                    0045 gmt                            Temperature Map of USA        You've got to be joking.  The extremes of the temperature map today is hideous.  The range in temperatures defies historic ranges. 

November 20, 2011                    0007 gmt                                       The change in temperature in 24 hours.  Twenty-four hours of huge shifts in high temperatures.  Oh, one might say that is simply the highs when the solar rays were noted.  Really, so I suppose all is well on the low end of the temperature scale for the  past 24 hours, huh?

I think this is self explanatory.  If not, then I need to explain it anyway as it would be a waste of my time.  I really abhor morons, especially when they don't know they are.  I'll throw in one more map for good measure to 'seal the deal' this evening.

The USA Seasonal Drought Outlook for the time period upto February 29, 2012.  Leap year.  The change in the Climate Crisis is not really manifesting, now is it?  The Climate Crisis is sustaining, isn't it?  The CO2 levels and human abuses are the reason.  Does anyone with half a brain actually believe this can or will go on forever without dire consequences to life?  If there are, that is simply amazing.

Revenue is not a dirty word (click title to entry - thank you)

Mitt Romney appears to be tone deaf when it comes to addressing our nation’s debt and deficits. His only test for federal programs, including Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, seems to be whether or not it’s worth borrowing money from China to pay for it.

I’d like to say this to Mitt and every other candidate for president — revenue is not a dirty word. After years of cutting spending so much that we’ve already hit the bone, it’s time to admit this is a revenue crisis and propose solutions that acknowledge as much.

One such proposal is the Wall Street Traders and Speculation Tax Act. This fraction of a tax on risky Wall Street trades (.03 percent) would raise roughly $40 billion to $50 billion a year in much needed revenue.

Sadly, I doubt Mitt would be willing to do such a thing to his friends on Wall Street.

Mr. Ginter and I agree, this is NOT a spending crisis, it is in fact a REVENUE  CRISIS !

The Petroleum Industry Darling, Issa, is worth nearly One-Half Billion $US.

Talk about the 1 percent. (click title to entry - thank you)

A new study shows about half the lawmakers in Congress are millionaires, and that their net worth has risen steadily since 2008 despite the financial crash....

...As several previous tallies have shown, Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., came out as the wealthiest member in Congress -- with an average net worth of $448 million....

I remember vividly how a possible First Lady by the name of Teresa Heinz Kerry was attacked viciously for her wealth.  So, ah, what gives?

...Back in December, Darrell Issa (click here) sent his now-infamous letter to corporate lobbyists and industry groups asking them to recommend hearings for the Oversight Committee. Among the recipients were Big Oil groups with benign names representing a wide range of notorious organizations. For example, the Independent Petroleum Association of America. In its response, the IPAA focused on rolling back EPA regulations and streamlining the permitting process for both offshore and onshore drilling. Who is the IPAA?...

A Liar Besides? 

...On Tuesday, Rep. Darrell Issa's (R-CA) (click here) Oversight Committee will hold a hearing attempting to make the case that "policies that suppress domestic production of oil and gas" are causing "pain at the pump." In fact, a wide range of experts, including the former chief economist of the American Petroleum Institute, have concluded that blaming the Obama administration for high gas prices is a fallacy....

There is no 'theme' for Gingrich, he is a Capitalist.

WASHINGTON | Thu Sep 17, 2009 6:11pm EDT
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Nearly 45,000 people die in the United States each year -- one every 12 minutes -- in large part because they lack health insurance and can not get good care, Harvard Medical School researchers found in an analysis released on Thursday.
 The United States of America has profound problems.  People, like Brown and Gingrich are incapable of solving them.  There was a huge financial collapse of financial institutions in 2008 due to deregulation and CEOs that chartered their companies to be driven over the brink of "Too Big To Fail" as an economic strategy.  They failed, the CEOs of Too Big to Fail FAILED to even look beyond their desperation for AIG insurance payouts to realize they would crash AIG in the process....
 There isn't much to say.  There is no MYSTERY to these people.  They are incapable and like to appear to have MYSTERY on their side.  If they can mystify the electorate into believing they are cloaked as responsible when in fact they are Harry Potter seeking the latest potion then they win elections.  That is complete idiocy on the part of the electorate that seems to believe being mystified is where its at.

Gingrich and Brown are incapable of reaching beyond profiteering.  Just that simple.  When people are incapable they are incapable.  Incapable is incapable.

Newt Gingrich is THE REASON why people died in the USA for lack of health care insurance after then First Lady Hillary Clinton tried to bring answers.  What is there to say about a man that likes money and distains citizens lives?  There isn't anything else to say.  He is immoral and incapable.  He and Scott Brown hail from the same mantle. 

Support at GOP debate for letting the uninsured die (click here)

September 13, 2011
By Michael Muskal | Los Angeles Times
The French Revolution had Marie Antoinette reportedly urging the masses starved for bread to eat cake instead. Now progressive circles are jeering over an exchange involving Rep. Ron Paul that they say shows that conservatives are unwilling to use society’s power to treat sick Americans and would rather let them die instead.

Is the American dialogue unable to simply come to CONCLUSIONS without fancy debates where the immoral seek to be 'pheonixed' into the virtuous?  The Republicans LIKE punishment of anyone unable to fend it off.  The increased poverty levels, the increased hardship from forever escalating health care costs, homelessness, joblessness are all the mantle of this party and they are immune to criticism about it.  Their answer is for those vulnerable to die.  DIE.   They believe those that are vulnerable die.  That is capitalism in its purist form.  Capitalism is a self defeating strategy that leaves the vulnerable on the fringes of life to die. 

There is no vurtue here.  They are as they appear and they are immoral capitalists with a thirst for anarchy and death.  Why are people living in denial?  Waiting for the potion?  The Republicans have no answers, Gingrich and Brown are proof. 

There are SHORTAGES of drugs that fight cancer while immoral judges seek to protect the right of the tobacco industry to hide from truth in their advertising.  These capitalists believe dying is the answer to their problem so long as they can protect their profits.  What else has to be said.  Oncological drugs are MISSING from physicians treatment regimes due to capitalism.  People are unable to fight off their disease due to capitalism.  What else is there to understand?

And immoral people such as Brown and Gingrich and their Right Wing Media, such as Charles Krauthammer, scream as loud as they can scream that the USA health care industry is the best in the world.  "W"rong!  Dead wrong.  There aren't even drugs to fight cancer in the USA.  The BEST health care system?  NO.  Absolutely no!

Go die.  The profits have become more important than life.  Just go die.  Death panels?  You betcha.  It is called Wall Street.

Bordering on Poverty (click here)

A fuller measure of poverty by the Census Bureau shows more people living near poverty (not poor, but with incomes below 150% of the poverty line) than the old measure does. The new measure adjusts for cost of living and includes government benefits and income lost to taxes, health care and work expenses....
