UNISYS Water Vapor Image of North and West Hemisphere of Earth
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.
