The USA Military linked the climate crisis and global unrest a long time ago. It is true.

December 21, 2015By Bob Koigi

Behind towering acacia trees (click here) that provide much sought after shade in the sunbaked landscape of southern Ethiopia lies the story of a long quest for lasting peace by communities at the Kenya-Ethiopia border, led most recently by a group of community elders. The region has suffered from decades of longstanding conflict over limited resources that have claimed thousands of lives and displaced tens of thousands of families, and which have recently been exacerbated by drought and changing weather patterns...

...But the conflict has taken a new and complex twist in recent years as rains have failed and weather vagaries have taken a toll on pastoralists’ way of life. The 2011 and 2012 drought in the Horn of Africa, for example, impacted more than 13 million people, particularly pastoralist communities, and contributed to an intense food crisis in the region. Dwindling land for pasture, coupled with lack of water, is pushing pastoralists from their homes to new frontiers perceived to be resource rich. Climate change is likely to continue exacerbating challenges in the region — in East Africa, global warming is predicted to cause more severe and frequent droughts, increased desertification, and more intense extreme weather events....

It is obvious airport delays lie along the storm's path.

The delays are related to incoming and outgoing jets in the area of the storm.

...But some (click here) weren't as lucky. Across the country, long delays and cancellations many of which were due to severe weather in several parts of the United States. In Mississippi and Alabama, rivers flooded. And in Texas, tornadoes tore through towns, while others were hit by some unexpected snow. That weather system caused a ripple effect, delaying flights across the country, including at Tampa International Airport. 
Kyle Duvall was flying out of Tennessee and had multiple delays on several legs of his trip, all due to weather. He ended up missing the cruise he was supposed to be on.
"Yesterday was an absolute travel nightmare," said Duvall. "Today I'm staying positive. I'm looking at it as a Christmas vacation adventure," he added with a chuckle. 

The worst flooding in seventy years in Great Britain.

London: Climate change (click here for video as well) is forcing England to re-assess its flood defences in the face of unprecedented river level surges, one of the United Kingdom government's most senior environment officials says.
"We are moving from a period of known extremes into a period of unknown extremes," said David Rooke, deputy chief executive of the UK government's Environment Agency, which manages the country's rivers.
"We will need to re-assess all the defences right across the country."...

This surprises me, because, Europe did a in depth study conducted in Europe within the past few years. The reason was because of flooding it received. The study resulted in building walls to keep water contained. The study and the wall was a very big expense. Europe is alarmed by it's current problems and they will again address the climate crisis and what needs to be done to eliminate the flooding.

Not even Great Britain is experiencing the problems of the USA and it has been second in the amounts of historic greenhouse gas emissions..

Great Britain is a country that has taken responsibility for it's greenhouse gas emissions and the need for it's population's safety. 

This was mid-November in Saudi Arabia and the middle east.

Severe Weather Risk Eyes Saudi Arabia, Iraq Through Tuesday (blowing sand explains somewhat the cultural dress of women in this region of the world)

November 18, 2015
By Eric Leister

The risk for severe weather (click here) will dip unusually far south into the Middle East early this week.
Residents across northern Saudi Arabia and southwestern Iraq should remain on alert for potentially violent thunderstorms.
The danger will shift northwest to southeast across the risk zone into Tuesday. Hail and Medina, Saudi Arabia, and Najaf, Iraq, are among the cities at risk for violent thunderstorms.
Areas from Tabuk and Sakaka to Baghdad could still experience a shower or thunderstorm, though the worst weather will be farther south and east.
"Damaging wind and flooding rain will be the main threats from any severe thunderstorm," stated AccuWeather Meteorologist Rob Richards. Hail cannot be ruled out. Gusty wind from thunderstorms can also produce blinding sand and dust storms.
A second threat area will be across Israel, Lebanon, southern Syria and western Jordan. These areas will be at risk for showers and thunderstorms with strong winds, hail and downpours.

The severe winds around New Zealand dictated the winner.

Sydney, Australia (December 26, 2015) – Record holding eight time (click here) Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race line honours victor, Wild Oats XI, has retired from the race after reporting a torn mainsail. The Mark Richards skippered crew is returning to Sydney. No further details are available at this stage....

If this tear was unique to the sail of this long standing champion boat and crew I would not bother noting it. But, there were very recent winds that stranded a private sailing in New Zealand waters. The sailing boat had nothing to do with racing or a strategy against powerful winds. A torn mailsail is not what one would expect from this world class boat and crew.

Shortly after 10.10pm, local time, the news was received that Pierre Gal’s CEX Dolce had broken her mast and was also returning to Sydney. All on board both yachts are safe.
The front half of the fleet in the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia’s 628 nautical mile race was feeling the brunt of a stiff southerly, with Ichi Ban’s navigator, Will Oxley, reporting gusts of up to 43 knots . The southerly will filter to the smaller yachts during the night.
Further updates will be made available when more is known.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, the live stream of the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race start was unable to be broadcast internationally. We apologise for any inconvenience and frustration that this has caused international followers.

2013 a school was leveled and all that the people were allowed to do in the national media was be grateful for the children that lived.

A child (click here) is pulled from the rubble of the Plaza Towers Elementary School in Moore, Okla., and passed along to rescuers after Monday's tornado.

Absolutely no political pressure results from the victims of these deadly events. The politicians from Oklahoma's tragedies come out smelling like roses. Why? Because they believe in a benevolent god. Well, the god they believe in sure doesn't seem benevolent to me. No god fearing person ignores the signs of warnings from Earth benevolently allowed to exist.

This is a map of where there have been NO tornadoes in the USA. This is by zip code. Texas hold the record in 150 tornado occurrences. It would seem now the Texas state government can claim the highest number of winter tornadoes with far higher deaths than summer tornadoes.

Jordan Tessler, (click here) a geographer/amateur meteorologist in the Baltimore/Washington, D.C. area, tweeted the interesting map you see above, showing the U.S. ZIP codes without a confirmed tornado from 1950-2013, using data from NOAA's Storm Prediction Center.

Anyone think that is a crackpot analysis? It isn't. The extremist religions are known to be in areas where impoverishment and trauma exist on a day to day basis.

The climate crisis has been made a political issue by the cronyies of the south. They attached election money and religious leanings to their donations. Religion is used on a regular basis in Red States to provide 'a voting base as well as a donor base' to the GOP. 

The USA government has been under the influence of Republicans in the past four dating back to Eisenhower. The USA had rid itself of right wing political extremists beginning in 1992, but, that effort was interrupted by corruption in the 2000 election. The climate crisis should not be attached to politics at all. American scientists are good honest people, many of which go to church. Their work is disrespected in the south to the point where long standing government employees of Florida have been victimized by the current governor.

The reason the GOP uses god as an approach to politics is because it the ONLY way they can claim morality, otherwise, they would not have any basis to their particular type of morality. Any USA government leader in the USA should demonstrate morality to their electorate, however, this particular type of politics by the GOP is corruption pandering to cronies. It is a 'let's pretend' strategy.

The primary focus by the GOP are 'let's pretend' strategies, including, deeply set violence in war and what could be considered 'prayer in vein' when it is not connected to REAL ACTION by governments. No person or governing bodies in the USA can claim that god brings about morality on a day to day basis to avert hardship. God doesn't babysit the USA. Quite the contrary, according to a recent visit by Pope Francis, the USA needs to do more to respect God's Creation.

The fact Texas has the highest incidence of tornadoes in the USA is not a coincidence. I don't believe in coincidence dictating policy. Policy should reflect the concern of protecting citizens.

Pray is about finding God, not about pleading your case for greater profits. That was p-r-o-f-i-t-s, like Wall Street, not prophet as in religion. 

Pray may bring a sincere place for oneself in religious worship, however, praying does not mean God is on your side politically.

This impoverished worship of RELIGION in the south has stunted dialogues necessary to move forward to a better quality of life for the people in the USA in these states. Prayer might help accept hunger as a reality in strength to accept one's fate, however, that imposed political strategy is about money as well. Food stamps, Medicaid and children's health insurance cut while the subsidies to the petroleum industry exists in large amounts. Prayer is about personal strength within faith. It is not about providing a fool proof method of who is moral and who is not. As a matter of fact, the prayerful submissiveness of the southern citizen provides for sheep preyed on by vicious politicians in value to cronyies of the steely handling of constituents.

The lack of dialogue among these 'religious dependent' leaders has caused the lack of action in the US Congress and allowed a political strategy that guarantees their constituent deserved suffering. It makes no sense in a modern civilization as the USA that greenhouse gas emissions have been ignored for decades. That is corruption and nothing short of it. 

The USA cannot continue down this path of destruction facilitated by masquerading politicians of cronyies. These people among the GOP are not moral. That should be plain to their constituents while praying for loved ones that have died unnecessary deaths.

The submissiveness of any constituent to this level of corruption is strongly noted when the 'idea' of subterranean shelters from tornadoes isn't made a reality until President Obama demanded it. That is striking. It is a call to awareness of how these people are taken for granted, quite literally, with lies to  their beautiful souls. 

These constituents don't define themselves according to their personal dangers and/or impoverishment. They respond to rhetoric that is known to work in the face of cronyism. Rhetoric used in this way are lies that kill. The DEFINITION of rhetoric: language designed to have a persuasive or impressive effect on its audience, but often regarded as lacking in sincerity or meaningful content.

There are significant populations within these GOP lands. They need the truth and not rhetoric. These politicians are highly immoral, especially, when constituents are threatened with job closures if companies go out of business because of the CORRECT path for the USA. That is hideous. If the USA cannot direct it's economy to create good paying jobs for people, what good is it. No American should be measuring their employment against their life or death. That is not morality by any measure.

There are reasons the GOP is unable to back the best outcomes for the USA regarding a climate crisis. There is a parallel reason why the former Vice President Gore never realized the presidency in the USA and it revolves around the corruption that accompanies the abuse of power of the quality of life of the USA people. 

The USA will need election monitors again in 2016. Vice President Gore has never been proven wrong.

Garland, Texas

The people of Garland, Texas are not used to dealing with the climate crisis. They are used to normal weather. Earth is a planet. The dynamics of the storms that hit Garland, Texas are planetary forces. This weather did not come because the Jet Stream delivered a normal weather pattern.

Planetary forces are enormous. The people of the USA cannot compensate anymore for the forces delivered by Earth.

The video below was June of last year, 2014. 

I have stated over and over, there is an eruption of climate 'extremes' that are warnings to what is to come. The Nebraska tornadoes were the first sighting of such a global phenomena. This wasn't going to go away. I am quite confident NASA scientists studying Earth's physics know when such a phenomena is manifesting in singular events or events in the minority. They know an extreme has occurred. That extreme cannot be ignored. Humans would consider it a warning, but, in reality when a scientist recognizes it, it means there are very deadly forces at work with Earth that is only beginning.

The weather is an outcome to climate. The weather the USA is experiencing is global dynamics. The only aspect that is local is the density of greenhouse gases. If the USA does not end it's emissions of this density, this trend will not end. THE USA IS EXPERIENCING THESE SEVERE EVENTS BECAUSE OF THE DENSITY OF THE GREENHOUSE GASES. This is not occurring any place else on Earth.

This is occurring within the boundaries of the USA because legislators decided they knew more than the scientists and never protected the American people from the weather occurrences resulting because of changing climate that has been GROWING over the past half century.


The people of the USA that believe there is no such thing as a changing climate that 'can be handled' are putting themselves in the direct path of destruction. Over a half century ago the USA's political climate was suppose to take the warnings with brevity and act upon them. 

A half century was more than enough time to act to change the trajectory of the dangers to Americans. This could have easily been averted. It wasn't. These climate events are premeditated ambitions upon the American people. The American people have been lied to for a political chronyism that involved the petroleum industry. The very resources that are owned by the people of the USA were exploited in the face to this chosen path by legislators. That is unconscionable. My god, when did anyone give the USA government the right to kill kids? When is it going to stop, when every one is dead? 

These tornadoes in Nebraska lasted for a half minute or so on the evening news, but, in reality this climate even lasted into the night and the next day before it ended. This was not a tornado, it was a climate event of deadly dynamics.

Southern cities may want the information from the north to handle impasse on roads and highways.

An aerial image taken (click here) Sunday, December 27, 2015 shows the path of a tornado in Rowlett, Texas. Violent storms ripped through the North Texas area late Saturday, spawning tornadoes that killed 11 people. (G.J. McCarthy/The Dallas Morning News)

Updated at 8 p.m. (click here) Sunday: Revised throughout the day to reflect the latest information.
Hundreds huddled in shelters Sunday while trying to add up the damage to their homes, churches and schools caused by deadly storms that blew through North Texas.

How could you? How could you ever deny the death this climate is causing? For the sake of politics. The mental health of men and women has to come into question, when death was known to occur, when there were obvious issues that would result in innocent American deaths.

The Republicans hide behind ancient definitions of weather. They are more than cowards, they are killers.

Eleven people, including an infant, were killed in Dallas and Collin counties, and as many as 11 tornadoes were reported to the National Weather Service.
The National Weather Service confirmed nine tornadoes Sunday night and said that number could rise in the coming days as more areas are surveyed....

When road conditions become ridiculous for snow plows and sand spreaders, "Up North" uses road graders with snow plows. Sand and other ice melters do not work at all in extremely low temperatures. Literally, the ice has to be scraped off the road. The picture to the right is from Wikipedia. They were very smart to place this particular picture within their website.

These are EF4 tornadoes. This is in no way qualified to be considered as 'normal' climate activity and outcomes. The denial is insane. 

Killing has a priority in Republican politics. It would seem a preferable value.

And YES!!!!!, this is THE RESULT of the USA government FAILURE to act to protect lives at the recommendation of American scientists!

UNISYS Water Vapor north and west hemisphere satellite (click here for 12 hour loop - thank you)

There is no other part of the world experiencing twin tornadoes. The United States of America has the densest CO2 accumulation and rightfully is receiving the strongest impact of the climate crisis.

December 28, 2015
UNISYS Water Vapor USA Satellite (click here for 12 hour loop - thank you)

Tornadoes are a result of climate systems driven by heat.

There will be additional deaths in the USA due to the exposure of frigid temperatures where citizens are unfamiliar with such climate.

The impoverished of the southern USA will not have resources to protect them form the freezing temperatures. Additionally, the winds are bringing blizzards that most Americans are unfamiliar with across the entire USA.

This is the wind currently over the USA. The tornadoes are coming directly from high tropospheric dynamics.

Wind Map (click here)

Evacuation routes in blizzards become useless. The velocity of this system is also fueled from heat and water vapor from the Gulf of Mexico. The system is a heat transfer system as it receives heat from the USA southeast and mixes with the frigid air mass from the northeast and northwest.

The Republican Nightmare - Climate denial and negligent homicide.

4 American soldiers among the 43 dead in a week long severe climate outcomes:

Twin tornadoes. This is becoming the normal state of climate. I do believe this is just a little more than sea level rise.

2:30 a.m.
Blizzard-like conditions have led to the closure of most of Interstate 40 from Albuquerque east across the Texas Panhandle.
New Mexico State Police spokeswoman Sgt. Elizabeth Armijo said Sunday night that the stretch of interstate from Albuquerque to the Texas border would be closed through at least Monday afternoon. She urged travelers passing through New Mexico to use Interstate 10 instead.

The interstate highway system is the infrastructure built specifically to move the military during national emergencies.

In Texas, the Texas Department of Public Safety says only a small section of the highway around Amarillo remains open. Texas State Trooper Cindy Barkley says deteriorating conditions forced authorities to indefinitely close the highway for about 100 miles east of Amarillo to Oklahoma.
I-40 is the main east-west highway through the state's Panhandle.
The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard warning until 9 a.m. Monday for the Panhandle and several counties in New Mexico. Authorities say that even in areas where the warning has expired, residual blowing and drifting is expected and will make conditions dangerous....
