Earth Changes Accelerate: What Is Causing These Record Heatwaves, Massive “Firenadoes”, Giant Dust Storms And Large Earthquakes?
Posted: 06 Aug 2018 Michael Snyder
Major changes are happening to our planet, and the experts are groping for answers. In recent days some have suggested that what we are witnessing is the natural progression of “man-made climate change”, but that explanation has generally been received with a lot of skepticism. Something truly dramatic appears to be happening to the globe, and it isn’t just because the amount of carbon dioxide in the air suddenly reached some sort of magical “tipping point”. But without a doubt, temperatures are getting warmer. In July, Death Valley experienced “the hottest month ever recorded on the planet”. Over in Europe, was being billed as Europe’s “hottest day ever”, and temperatures in Lisbon, Portugal were expected to top 107 degreesboth and . On the other side of the planet, the crippling drought in Australia is devastating farms “like a cancer”, and things are so hot in North Korea that the government has declared “an unprecedented natural disaster”…
This week, the North Korean government called record-high temperatures in the country “an unprecedented natural disaster” and said that country was working together to fight the problem.In California, extreme heat and bone dry conditions continue to fuel some of the worst wildfires in the history of the state…
Crews battling deadly Northern California wildfires prepare for another day of hot and dry conditions that could drive the flames into new areas and threaten more homes.Ultimately, this may turn out to be the worst year for wildfires that California has ever seen.
Of course there have been bad years for wildfires before. But what we haven’t seen before are “firenadoes” that pack 143 mph winds…
When I first heard about this fire tornado, I was absolutely stunned. , NWS researcher combed through the wreckage left behind and determined a fire whirl — commonly known as a fire tornado — roared through the area between on July 26th.
I had never heard of a fire tornado anywhere near that size in the United States, and apparently the experts hadn’t either…
“This is historic in the U.S.,” Craig Clements, director of San Jose State University’s Fire Weather Research Laboratory, told BuzzFeed News. “This might be the strongest fire-induced tornado-like circulation ever recorded.”Elsewhere in the Southwest, drought continues to intensify, and this is starting to produce absolutely enormous dust storms.
For example, check out what just happened to the city of Phoenix…
A huge wall of dust enveloped the Phoenix metro areaCertainly a dust storm is less destructive than a “fire tornado” in the short-term, but as we saw in the 1930s, a consistent pattern of giant dust storms can absolutely cripple a nation. in the second monsoon storm in a four-day span.
And let us not forget all of the shaking that has been happening to the crust of our planet.
, Indonesia was shaken by a magnitude 7.0 earthquake…
So why is all of this happening?
Yes, the amount of carbon dioxide in the air is increasing, and it has been increasing for a very long time. Ultimately, the amount that humans contribute to the overall level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is marginal, and even if we took the most extreme measures possible there is very little that we could do to significantly affect the balance.
And scientists assure us that our planet once had much, much higher levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere in the air then we do today, and our planet appeared to have thrived under those conditions.
But the narrative won’t change. The mainstream media will continue to tell us that the Earth changes that we are witnessing are due to global warming and that if we reverse course that we can go back to how things were before.
No, we can’t go back, because the changes that are happening are way outside of our control.
Fundamental changes are happening to our planet, and this is just the beginning. For now these Earth changes are a minor nuisance to a lot of people, but pretty soon nobody will be able to ignore them.
