California dumping precious stored water to fatten stream water for environmental causes

“Incredibly, during a drought the appointed California Water Board is dumping precious stored water from reservoirs to fatten stream water for a variety of environmental causes, including increasing fish production—while farmers lose billions in lost crops even as food shortages for humans increase.” Joel Skousen

Scientism: the Progressive religion — Treating Fauci’s every utterance as if it emanated from a burning bush

“The Scientism surrounding the Wuhan panic has turned reasonable people into fanatics – from the “Karens” who call the police on anyone who is not religiously following Dr. Fauci’s edicts to the politicians and journalists who treat Fauci’s every utterance as if it emanated from a burning bush.

“Believing in science, like believing all women, has become a mark of cultural virtue. Yet the people most likely to say that they believe in science are the least likely to value objectivity and healthy skepticism. Science, for such people, has taken the place of religion in providing certainty in an uncertain world. When science is used to signal virtue and provide certainty, it’s not science, but a hollow religion.

Liberal Policies Fueling Catastrophic Wildfires – Clinton & environmentalists outlawed logging and prescribed burns, creating a ticking time bomb!

Wildfires to get worse thanks to Clinton policies, says fire expert who predicted uptick in blazes

’30 years later, they are still ignoring it’

September 13, 2020

Former President Bill Clinton made a significant change to federal land management nearly 30 years ago that created the conditions necessary for massive wildfires to consume portions of the West Coast, according to one fire expert who predicted the problem years ago.

Shortly before leaving office in 2001, Clinton limited the ability of the United States Forest Service to thin out a dense thicket of foliage and downed trees on federal land to bring the West into a pristine state, Bob Zybach, an experienced forester with a PhD in environmental science, told the Daily Caller News Foundation. The former president’s decision created a ticking time bomb, Zybach argues.

“If you don’t start managing these forests, then they are going to start burning up. Thirty years later, they are still ignoring it,” said Zybach, who spent more than 20 years as a reforestation contractor. He was referring to warnings he made years ago, telling officials that warding off prescribed burns in Oregon and California creates kindling fuelling fires.

Such rules make it more difficult to deploy prescribed burns, which are controlled burns designed to cull all of the underbrush in forests to lessen the chance of massive fires, Zybach noted. Years of keeping these areas in their natural state result in dead trees and dried organic material settling on the forest floor, which become like matchsticks soaked in jet fuel during dry seasons, he said. … Continue reading “Liberal Policies Fueling Catastrophic Wildfires – Clinton & environmentalists outlawed logging and prescribed burns, creating a ticking time bomb!”

(vid) Corbett w/ Joanne Nova: What Were the Australian Bushfires Really About?

Like California, the main undiscussed problem is fuel load due to forest mismanagement.

In this conversation (recorded before the recent record rainfall in New South Wales), Joanne Nova of JoanneNova.com.au joins us to analyze the recent Australian bushfires and debunk the notion that they were caused by climate change. We discuss the historical patterns, the lack of drought trends in the long-term data, and the reality that this type of mega-fire could be prevented with simple and well-known land management techniques like controlled burns.

Australian Brush Fires Caused Mostly by Arson

Although the media is pushing the global warming agenda as the cause of the rash of bush fires in Australia, the Police say hundreds of fires were caused deliberately by arson: The Epoch Times reported that,

In [New South Wales (NSW)], 24 were apprehended and charged with deliberately lighting bushfires. A further 53 people are facing legal action for allegedly failing to comply with a total fire ban, while 47 others are accused of improperly discarding a lit cigarette or match outdoors, according to the state’s police force.

In Queensland, police concluded that 103 fires had been deliberately lit, with 98 people—67 of them juveniles—having been identified as the culprits. Continue reading “Australian Brush Fires Caused Mostly by Arson”

2019 Record Warm Year for Anchorage, Alaska – 5 warmest years occurred in last 6 years

I remember the cold ’81-82 winter well, working the planes outside at Anchorage International in a string of below -20°F nights. One night was -33°F. But the previous winter, my first in Alaska, had a melting spell, like ours yesterday, but longer.

Anchorage’s winter temps are much warmer than interior Alaska’s because of the ocean’s warming affect.

ANCHORAGE (KTUU) – 2019 will enter the books as the warmest year on record for Anchorage. The average temperature for the year is 42.5 degrees Fahrenheit. The previous “warmest year” was 2016 with an average temperature of 41.9F. In fact, the five warmest years for Anchorage have occurred in the past six years. The records for Anchorage go back to 1954. …

Anchorage had a record year overall, breaking the all-time record high on July 4 by hitting 90 degrees. The previous record had been 85 degrees set on June 14, 1969. Continue reading “2019 Record Warm Year for Anchorage, Alaska – 5 warmest years occurred in last 6 years”

CIA DIRECTOR ADMITS STRATOSPHERIC AEROSOL INJECTION, CHEMTRAILS

The US Air Force has been doing this since the mid-90s. We’ve had jumbo jets since the ’60s. Contrails used to disappear within a number of seconds. Now it’s hours. Our government won’t publicly admit they’re doing it, but here, Brennan admits what it does and even how much it costs.

He calls it “stratospheric aerosol injection, or SAI, a method of seeding the stratosphere with particles….”

– –

CIA Director Brennan Admits They Are Using Geoengineering around the globe. He admits they are spraying aerosol particles in the atmosphere to allegedly reflect sun light. He then finishes by stating that this technology could cause countries to rise up and oppose one another. This could be the first admission that they have a technology that can manipulate the weather, and even use it as a weapon. He states using the technology could bring good change to some areas, but do the opposite to other countries. Meaning it could devastate certain ares! Pay Attention Folks!

Full text:

Another example is the array of technologies—often referred to collectively as geoengineering—that potentially could help reverse the warming effects of global climate change. One that has gained my personal attention is stratospheric aerosol injection, or SAI, a method of seeding the stratosphere with particles that can help reflect the sun’s heat, in much the same way that volcanic eruptions do.

An SAI program could limit global temperature increases, reducing some risks associated with higher temperatures and providing the world economy additional time to transition from fossil fuels. The process is also relatively inexpensive—the National Research Council (NRC is a private, nonprofit institution in the United States founded in 1916, which produces reports that shape policies, inform public opinion, and advance the pursuit of science, engineering, and medicine.) estimates that a fully deployed SAI program would cost about $10 billion yearly.

As promising as it may be, moving forward on SAI would raise a number of challenges for our government and for the international community. On the technical side, greenhouse gas emission reductions would still have to accompany SAI to address other climate change effects, such as ocean acidification, because SAI alone would not remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere.

On the geopolitical side, the technology’s potential to alter weather patterns and benefit certain regions at the expense of others could trigger sharp opposition by some nations. Others might seize on SAI’s benefits and back away from their commitment to carbon dioxide reductions. And, as with other breakthrough technologies, global norms and standards are lacking to guide the deployment and implementation of SAI.
I could go on, and on, and on, but rather than talk about the things that I find fascinating, let me stop here…

Walker said this is “not an area that we have any need for in the future” and it would not be a good use of Air Force research funds to keep HAARP going. “We’re moving on to other ways of managing the ionosphere, which the HAARP was really designed to do,” he said. “To inject energy into the ionosphere to be able to actually control it. But that work has been completed.” source

‘Chemtrails’ No Longer Conspiracy Theory: CIA Director Admits Plans of Aerosol Spraying for Geoengineering

NO LONGER A CONSPIRACY THEORY: CIA DIRECTOR ADMITS PLANS OF AEROSOL SPRAYING FOR GEOENGINEERING

Last week, the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, John O. Brennan addressed instability and transnational threats to global security at a meeting with the Council on Foreign Relations. During his long-winded talk of threats to US interests and how the largely CIA-created ISIL threat is impacting the world, Brennan brought up the topic of geoengineering.

Another example is the array of technologies—often referred to collectively as geoengineering—that potentially could help reverse the warming effects of global climate change. One that has gained my personal attention is stratospheric aerosol injection, or SAI, a method of seeding the stratosphere with particles that can help reflect the sun’s heat, in much the same way that volcanic eruptions do.

Magma Being Fed To Mt HOOD, An ocean data buoy is alerting to an “event” in the Cascadia Subduction Zone off the west coast of Oregon. This is where a magnitude 9 earthquake hit in 1700.

According to the data buoy, the water column height (depth) fell sharply within minutes off the coast of Oregon, signaling the land beneath the ocean has suddenly “sunk.” Here are the graphs showing what the ocean data buoy recorded: There is a magma tunnel leading directly from the Cascadia Subduction Zone straight up into Mount Hood! As the Juan de Fuca tectonic plate is being crushed (right now) it is melting into magma (lava). Whether or not there is enough magma to cause Mount Hood to erupt is unknown.

Meteorologists Begin To Admit To Climate Engineering – Chemtrails

Real contrails dissipate rapidly. These things just linger, and fill up the sky. Notice, they’re not in movies and TV shows more than 20 years ago, when jets were still all over the sky, but they are now.

The Air Force definitely is involved, an Air Force pilot told me at least 10 years ago. They use jet aircraft, unlike what the meteorologist claims they’re using, here. There is no way the type of plane he shows could spray the giant areas he shows.

Rain overnight in Anchorage pushed the number of consecutive rainy days in the city to 18 — tying a record set in September 1919, the National Weather Service reports.

As of 10 a.m. Friday, the weather service office on Sand Lake Road had measured .19 inches of rain since midnight, the agency reported.

That makes 18 straight days, starting Aug. 27, of measurable rainfall in the city. The earlier record was set in 1919,  from Sept. 7 to Sept. 24. Records in the city go back to 1915.

The jet stream is setting up in a pattern that I have NEVER seen during the summer season. The flow is straight from the Canadian Arctic for the eastern US with the West under this monster hot high pressure with many Western weather stations potentially reaching all-time record high temperatures.

The jet stream map below is a forecast from this evening for this coming Tuesday evening. Note that Colorado is smack under this “highly anomalous” summer pattern.

I’m going to do a video and will post it in the morning. In the meanwhile the following the forecast discussion from the NWS Weather Prediction Center in College Park MD.

…RECORD HEAT IN THE WEST…
…SOAKING RAINS IN THE EAST…

THE EXTREME MERIDIONAL PATTERN AT THE MEDIUM RANGE, AGREED UPON BY ALL THE GLOBAL NUMERICAL MODELS NOW, IS THE VERY ANTITHESIS OF METEOROLOGICAL SUMMER AT THE TEMPERATE LATITUDES–A TIME WHEN THE BAROTROPIC SUBTROPICAL RIDGE NORMALLY HOLDS SWAY. THE HIGHLY ANOMALOUS FLOW WILL LEAD TO HIGHLY ANOMALOUS SENSIBLE WEATHER, WITH SCORCHING HEAT IN THE WEST AND DAYS OF CLOUDBURSTS IN THE EAST.

TRIPLE-DIGIT DAILY MAXIMUM TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED THROUGHOUT THE LOWER ELEVATIONS OF THE INTERIOR WEST, WITH SOME LOCATIONS APPROACHING OR EXCEEDING ALL-TIME HIGHS. THE ANOMALIES–850 TEMPERATURES, 500 HEIGHTS, ET CETERA–WILL BE GREATEST OVER THE NORTHWEST. THE HEAT WAVE OVER WASHINGTON STATE EAST OF THE CASCADES WILL BE OF HISTORIC PROPORTIONS, BOTH IN TERMS OF DAILY MAXIMA AND DURATION OF THE STRING OF TRIPLE-DIGIT DAYS. NORMALLY HOT PLACES LIKE THE CENTRAL VALLEY OF CALIFORNIA, THE GREAT BASIN, AND THE DESERTS OF THE SOUTHWEST MAY EVEN OUTDO THEMSELVES, WITH LOCAL EFFECTS LIKE SOIL MOISTURE AND THERMAL WIND TERRAIN EDDIES DICTATING WHICH AREAS SEE NEW ALL-TIME RECORDS.

THE MOST PROLIFIC RAINFALL IN THE EAST IS EXPECTED ALONG THE GULF
COAST OF FLORIDA AND THE SOUTHEAST ATLANTIC COAST, WHERE
PERSISTENT DEEP AND FOCUSED SOUTHERLY FLOW WILL KEEP MOISTURE FLUX AND PRECIPITABLE WATER HIGH. FREQUENT SHOWERS ARE ALSO ANTICIPATED FROM THE OHIO VALLEY TO THE NORTHERN MID ATLANTIC AND EASTERN NEW ENGLAND STATES IN ASSOCIATION WITH STRONG SYNOPTIC-SCALE FORCING.

The Great Alaska Mosquito Invasion of June 2013! — “It was a perfect overwintering blanket for insects”

Anchorage Mosquitoes were HORRENDOUS for about 3 weeks this summer, after about a 3 week late start. Here is a theory why they were so bad, as well as a funny and so true commentary from the Anchorage Daily News:

Mosquito invasion in Southcentral Alaska leads to run on supplies

Published: June 17, 2013

“Mosquito populations are fairly high everywhere,” said Janice Chumley, integrated pest management technician at the Kenai Peninsula District office of Cooperative Extension Service.

Why? Because of weather we had nine months ago. Southcentral Alaska experienced an extremely wet fall followed directly by snow. The snow covered and insulated the ground before it could freeze very deep.

“It was a perfect overwintering blanket for insects,” Chumley said.

How perfect wasn’t immediately apparent because breakup came late this year; much of the state got smacked by a snowstorm a month ago. The extended cool weather delayed the hatchout, Chumley said. “But the minute it warmed up, all of those successfully overwintering sites produced clouds of mosquitoes.” …

What is not anecdotal is the fact that the Anchorage store shelves on which mosquito control products are usually stocked have become bare in the past few days. …

Elise Patkotak: Tropical heat in Anchorage? This isn’t right

Published: June 18, 2013

OK, let’s get one thing straight. If I’d wanted to have bright, hot sunshine for weeks in a row I’d have moved to Fairbanks or Hawaii or Mexico or, if I was really desperate, Florida. If I wanted to devote an hour every morning killing mosquitoes in my office before I could work, I’d have moved to a tropical forest. If I wanted to spend my time outdoors batting wildly at my head while screaming, “Get away from me, you beasts from hell” I’d have done a remake of “Bedlam.”

And I know I’m not alone. There are a lot of us out there in the Anchorage bowl, hiding in our own special closets with netting covering our entire bodies and fans blowing cold air from ice cubes to help us maintain our sanity.

My dogs scurry through the door to go into the yard at top speed because they fear that their tails will be slammed into the door I’m shutting as quickly as possible to keep the next horde of blood suckers out. They eye me fearfully as I stalk through the rooms of my house, bloody magazine in hand, inspecting walls and ceilings for another evil biter to squash beneath my avenging hand. …

Bloodletting worsens during Alaska’s legendary mosquito infestation

June 30, 2013

The insect uprising — courtesy of a swampy spring and late-season snow — has prompted many Alaskans to wonder when relief will come. …

It’s hard to know, because we have over 40 species in Alaska that rely on different habitats. The large mosquitoes are called the snow mosquitoes, and there are six species of those. They’re much slower, and some people call them “training mosquitoes” to get us ready for the next wave. Those are mostly gone. The ones we are seeing now are mostly in the genus ochlerotatus. They’re smaller and faster.
