    WHAT????? W H A T?????

    Is this "Expert Psychotherapist" still in business??? MUAhahahaha (where do they dig up these "experts"?)

    (so, based on this "expert opinion", anyone who now commits rape or sexual offence can blame global warming????? Wow. Love to see that as a defense in a courtroom)

    " It just parked on top of Louisiana "

    Global Warming responsible for Louisiana flood – Conservation biologist



    Published on 15 Aug 2016

    Thousands of Louisiana citizens have been displaced from their homes and businesses
    after massive downpours led to historic levels of flooding in the state. So far, at least
    six people have died; 12 thousand people are staying in shelters and about 40 thousand
    businesses and homes are without power. Conservation biologist Dr.Reece Halter joins
    RT’s Ed Schultz stating that “This is a climate in crisis, it’s overheated from burning fossil
    fuels and we’ve got to have a plan to go forward.” Halter also explains that the massive
    floods also allow create an environment for mosquito carried diseases such as Zika,
    Dengue and chikungunya to thrive.

    ================================================== =




    Published on 15 Aug 2016

    Six people have died, 20,000 have been evacuated and 10,000 are in shelters after
    massive floods ravaged parts of Louisiana. In some areas the water is beginning to
    recede, but the damage has already been done. Kaplan, Louisiana resident Leah
    Richard joins RT America’s Simone Del Rosario and says her grandmother needed
    to be relocated to another nursing home because of the flood waters and that this
    kind of flooding is on a ‘whole different scale,’ with houses affected that haven’t
    seen flooding like this in decades.

    In an excerpt to me from David DuByne (ADAPT 2030):

    The Southern Hemisphere is lagging one season behind the Northern Hemisphere, they are now beginning to have cold spells and crops losses that were experienced in NH 2014-2015. Now we head into this winter 2016-2017 in NH, we can get a gauge of the cold and crop damage as we head into fall. This is the barometer and gauge I need to really get a working model for cooling and intensity. It will cool this winter but how ferocious will determine the speed of the over all cooling.

    Look for blizzards in September and epic snows in November to see the trend.

    Remember the signs you need to look for are:

    1) police state type lock down on populations throughout the globe in preparations for food shortages. More like where isn't there army or police on the streets of which countries.

    2) Financial collapse as the world banking factions try to limit migration globally.

    I have been looking at the reported changes happening around this planet and wondering what's really happening for an increase in the number of powerful earthquakes, storms and hurricanes as well as the considerable increase of plumbing system mishaps called "sink holes."

    Weather storms seem to indicate an increase in the spinning power of their vortex... water damage turning into sinkholes could also indicate an increase in the vortex power of circulating water... but I couldn't fit earthquakes into that model until realizing where these powerful earthquakes are mostly happening: subduction zones.

    What's the engine for subductions and oceanic crusts motion: convection cells in the mantle acting as conveyor belts (like some hydraulic gear shifts work)... VORTEX!

    There is an increase in the strength of vortex spins affecting anything having some "fluidity."

    Where could such an increase in potential be coming from...

    ... and our solar system postulated as a binary system. That's our sun and its postulated dwarf twin acting as the two poles of a charged capacitor.

    When the two poles get closer, the potential difference increases due to the shortening of the distance... up to a maximum when at closest to each other (hopefully not a shorting of the circuit where the system is reset at equipotential for both poles with a big spark).

    That's where I am at, at the moment and it's subject to revision at any time new data show up
    Strange and very interesting corroboration about vortex power increase from unexpected quarters:

    Following the above idea of an increase of the spinning power of vortices/vortexes, there is an increasing up trend of injuries resulting from airplanes running into "invisible" vortex - also known as "Clear-air turbulence":
    '1,000 foot drops': Severe turbulence causes multiple injuries on Houston to London flight

    Ed Carty The Irish News Wed, 31 Aug 2016 23:59 UTC


    The United Airlines flight from Houston, Texas in the US to London Heathrow had to be diverted to Shannon Airport.

    A plane passenger said he feared for his life as a transatlantic jet dropped in severe turbulence injuring 16 people on board before landing at Shannon Airport.

    Gregory Giagnocavo, a telecoms investor and entrepreneur from Colorado in the US, was on the United Airlines flight when it suddenly plummeted four times.

    "These were petrifying, enormous drops. A part of me didn't know if we were going to make it. It was that bad," he said.

    "I gripped the arm rest and thought whether the next sound was going to be hitting the water."

    Flight UA880 from Houston, Texas, to London Heathrow was over the Atlantic at about 3.20am on Wednesday morning when it hit what the airline described as severe and unexpected turbulence.

    The pilots diverted to Shannon Airport in Ireland for the injured to be treated including two flight attendants, one with a suspected broken arm and another who was bleeding from a cut head.

    Three children were also treated in University Hospital Limerick after the plane was met on the runway by ambulance and paramedic crews.

    United Airlines said it provided care and support to customers and crew after the plane touched down in Ireland.

    There were 207 passengers on the Boeing 767-300 and 13 crew including three pilots in the cockpit.

    Another plane was arranged to fly the final stretch of the journey to Heathrow just after midday while the jet remained in Shannon for investigators to assess.

    Mr Giagnocavo, in London to meet developers and technology experts as part of a three-day brainstorming trip across Europe, said many passengers were trying to sleep through the overnight flight and were strapped in.

    "It fell four times in a row," he said.

    "It was a tremendous pull on the body. And on the third or fourth time babies starting waking up and crying, people were waking up disorientated.

    "I thought this is not turbulence. This is what feels like a life-threatening drop. This is not like any feeling I have had. This is immediately like an experience of being fired from a cannon.

    "It pulls you down so hard then it stops for a second and then it does that four times in a row.

    "If you didn't have your seat belt on you would have smashed your head."

    The Irish Aviation Authority (IAA) said the incident would be investigated.

    The alarm was raised with Irish air traffic control staff at 3.20am and the plane landed in Shannon at 5.55am and was met by ambulance and paramedic crews on the runway.

    Mr Giagnocavo, who has flown regularly for 30 years, said a man sitting across an aisle from him had been with one of the flight attendants in the galley when she was injured and he was knocked off his feet by the force of the turbulence.

    He said a retired pilot who was on the flight speculated that the plane plummeted about 1,000 feet in each of the drops.

    Regarding these "Clear-Air-Turbulences" (CAT), from a PPRuNe post:
    11th Sep 2016, 22:35
    #7 (permalink) Genghis the Engineer

    The research is frankly in early days, but I know and work with Paul Williams, and the article is a reasonable explanation of some aspects of his work.

    The basic principle is quite simple - increased energy in the atmosphere (global warming / climate change / call it what you will) is particularly causing increased circulation in the atmosphere, and that is putting more energy into the jetstreams.

    The north polar jetstream is particularly significant because of its importance in transatlantic flight. There's good evidence that the NPJ is becoming more energetic - this has two impacts: one is that the Rossby Waves (the meanders in the jetstream) are getting wider, another is that the core velocity in the NPJ is greater. This we know.

    Because major CAT encounters are particularly associated with the edges of the jetstream, then theoretically this is going to both create more opportunities for CAT encounters (as there will be more intersections of the NPJ) and more severe CAT (because of the greater sheer stresses caused by the greater core velocities).

    Anecdotally, this "seems to be" true, but at the moment, the hard evidence is pretty weak. We're working with one major carrier to mine their flight recorder data, and as we go further will probably be more players we talk to as well.

    But it would not be true to say that we know a lot yet - we're at the start of a research journey here. Nonetheless, if we are right - it's important, and that's why we're working on it.

    There are a load of other effects we're looking at as well - if anybody happened to be at Farnborough Airshow this year, on the Wednesday, you might have heard me give a talk on it.

    Looks like a good time to be near the equator

    In the 4 years I've been here I've noticed that our weather is EXTREMELY predictable.. it's a 10 degree variance .. 95' is the highest it gets in the summer and 85 in the winter (85 is more common than 95).

    if ANYONE will notice climate change first, it will be the tropics; regional climate changes won't be noticed in the tropics...


    So far I haven't noticed any variance in temperature; but my sample is not very large & I haven't been paying close attention.

    Now, if you look at a 20 year temp data set... there's definitely some cooling going on ever since the mid 1990's (this is from the airport on St Thomas, I don't live on that island).

    I think that's too short a period to predict an "ice age" or any massive cooling, but it looks to be a clear trend.

    Huge floods in Johannesburg, South Africa (where my parents and brother live - they are okay though struggling to get around) after a couple of months of water restrictions and drought:

    My kid (12 yrs old) just came home from school and mentioned to his mum that this year has been the hottest year ever. When I asked a few questions - it was his science teacher that told him and there was no specific geographical location mentioned, just that it was the hottest year EVER!.

    So much for teaching science. I showed Alan the figures for England since 1663 and specifically how the last 8 years had shown a drop in mean temperatures each year up to and including this year. I believe he is heading off to school tomorrow to tell his teacher that his Dad says he is wrong.
