As Sandy’s winds finally subside and thousands of people assess their losses, I remember my first experience with climate change. It was 1972 and back then the word climate change didn’t exist. I was taking meteorology and climatology courses at the University of Wisconsin. My mentoring professor was one of the premiere experts on Arctic climate. So he would travel yearly to both poles and collect data for his studies.
In late spring 1972 he came back from an expedition and was quite upset about what he found; it appeared that there was quite a spike in CO2 in the ice cores he had sampled. The cores covered about 150 years prior to 1972. He was quite alarmed but didn’t know what to make of it. We didn’t much talk about it after that initial conversation and I had not thought about it for over 35 years.
There was an increase in interest in global warming and climate change after Al Gore’s movie. Two months ago I read two articles on climate change. The shocking conclusion was its coming and it’s coming very fast. Before I had read the articles I was of the opinion that we had 30 to 50 years until the problem really became apparent. But now the climatologists are saying that we only have 5 to 10 years before heavy impact, such as severe drought, climate temperature extremes, super storms and rising oceans. This will cause famines and possible reduction of 50% of the earth’s population.
Folks, the horses and all the other farm animals are out of the barn and they are not coming back preparation is our only choice. So – it is kind of simple, move to high ground-500 ft above sea level a minimum.
And move to US Pacific Northwest –Oregon and Washington. That will work for awhile and next step if you can, get into Canada, also some of the higher elevations in the Rockies will also work but again for only awhile.
And forget trying to find someone to blame – presently that’s just a waste of time, unless we can find a real way to reverse the problem. It’s coming and it’s coming hard.
MWiz, Life is short, so always enjoy the present.

Most Americans still believe that our weather patterns are 100% natural and that our government has absolutely no control over the weather. Unfortunately, that is not the case at all. What you are about to read is evidence that weather modification is happening right now all over the United States. This is never acknowledged by our politicians and it is never talked about by the mainstream media. But it is very, very real. Weather modification programs in some parts of the country have been going on for many years and evidence of these programs is hidden in plain view. So does this mean that if we don’t like the weather we can just blame the government? Well, yes it does, but it also means that the government has been seriously messing around with our environment and there could be “unintended consequences” that are far more dramatic than any of us ever dared to imagine.
Those that believed that the government was involved in weather modification were once considered to be “kooks”, but the truth is that authorities aren’t even trying to hide it anymore. For example, the following was recently posted in the “Legal Notices” section of the classified ads in a local newspaper called The Tribune in San Luis Obispo, California….
NOTICE OF INTENTION WEATHER MODIFICATION PROGRAM THE SANTA BARBARA COUNTY WATER AGENCY HEREBY GIVES NOTICE OF INTENTION TO CONDUCT A WEATHER MODIFICATION PROGRAM NATURE AND PURPOSE: The purpose of the project is to increase rainfall to help alleviate deficiencies of water supplies in Santa Barbara County. Clouds would be seeded by the dispersal of Silver Iodide (AgI). Two possible modes of seeding, air based and ground based, would be used. LOCATION OF PURPOSE: Project operations could be conducted during the period between November 15 and April 15, for each year, 2011-2012 through 2015-2016. Airborne seeding operations would utilize air space over Santa Barbara County, portions of San Luis Obispo County as well as the Pacific Ocean immediately west of Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties. Ground based seeding operations would be conducted from the Santa Ynez Mountains, the Casmalia Hills and the San Rafael Mountains. The target areas for seeding operations are the watersheds behind Cachuma and Gibraltar reservoirs on the Santa Ynez River as well as Twitchell reservoir on the Cuyama River. LICENSEE: The project would be operated and supervised by a licensed weather modification consultant.
