Where Are the Hurricanes?

 

Here we are at the beginning of August, and we are only up to Georgette in the Pacific.  This is NOAA’s hurricane prediction for 2022:

 

When I look at those spreads on the right, I see tons of wiggle room (I’m surprised they don’t have 1-26 for named storms).  Nonetheless, I just realized we haven’t had any big storms yet that I know of.  What’s a climate change activist to do?

    On edit, July 22nd, Tropical storm Estelle was off the coast of Mexico, on the Pacific side. This storm system  should have been offering a great deal of relief to people in So California, as rivers of atmospheric moisture may have finally impacted that rain-deprived area. (I think Southern Calif has only been getting 10% of the amount of rainfall that it experienced back during the time frame of 2001 to 2011.)

    Yesterday, my community in No Calif had a wonderful 1/16th of an inch of rain. This event was  a rare summer sprinkling that, due to excessive volcanic activities, would not be rare at all except for the damn weather mod black op programs.

    On July 22nd, 1PacificRedwood put up his usual informative analysis regarding what was happening with Storm Estelle. If you want to witness something interesting, go to the below youtube and scroll to the 9 min mark. Ain’t it interesting that the national weather map people blacked out the info it normally provides on the Western region of our nation?

    I was just thinking about this yesterday.    August is known for big storms, but Sept is the month with the most likely formation.     I was looking for any chance of rain here in Texas, but need to wait for Sept.   The August storms tend towards the eastern Gulf and Atlantic coast.

    My understanding is there is a great deal of concern about a scientific  ability to foresee some massive hurricanes as we move into later in August. This is due to warmer water temps being measured in the Gulf of Mexico.

    But it should be noted that weather modification has occurred whenever our Major National Interests need to determine policies. The 2011 “Spring Revolution” in Syria happened after a major drought affected farmers in that nation… Was it a natural drought?

    I mention this because weather is a most important method by which to control people. Our Deep State is simply  not about to allow the people of Florida to oppose the “need for the USA to follow in California’s footsteps” – a template which  Biden has enthusiastically proclaimed as being the path he will pursue for the sake of our nation. (He made this announcement  within 4 months of being installed in the Oval Office, maybe sooner.)

    I have been told by long-time Texans that the same phenomenon that’s preventing hurricane formation is what’s causing the extreme heat and drought that Texas, Oklahoma, and parts of Nebraska are experiencing (and that leaves the wind not blowing so the many Texas windmills aren’t very helpful for running our air conditioners). I’m sure someone will therefore say that  many hurricanes and no hurricanes are both symptoms of human-caused “climate change. “

    Given how hot it is right now, I’d say they are building up into some whopping storms for September.

    We’re having an earlier and longer monsoon season, very humid for the desert Southwest. The monsoon is the big seasonal weather pattern in the Pacific, delivering rain in anything from a brief cloudburst to torrential storm. I don’t know the degree to which this pattern interacts with cyclones/hurricanes.

    I think where I am, there’s a seasonal shift happening. It’s been cold well into May (for FL), hotter later, and the hurricanes haven’t been showing up til end of season.

    From the “For What it’s Worth Dept.”:

    A cursory reading of the UN IPCC Assessment Report 6 (AR6) released this year suggests that scientists have “low confidence” in their predictions of increased extreme weather events attributable to anthropogenic global warming.

    That won’t stop the news and the activists (but I repeat myself) from jumping on every big storm as an example of the evils of fossil fuel, of course. That’s their schtick. It probably works for them.

    But it isn’t very sciency.

    Homophobe.

    I found it of real  interest when I came across info about Neil Ferguson, of the infamous, pandemic-status-securing Imperial College computer models “proving” a “deadly” Covid virus.

    It  turned out that a short time into COVID restrictions, Ferguson became  enmeshed in an adulterous affair with a woman who serves on a major US foundation. This foundation  happens to  focus on the Global Climate crisis.

    His love for her was so deep (lust for her?) that he ignored the very protocols of the very COVID restrictions that his models flipped Boris Johnson into mandating.

    All twisted paths are inter-twined. The virtuous causes of Diversity, Pandemic Restrictions and Climate Crisis Prevention seem to lead down the same path of Non-Scientific balderdash, designed to enslave everyone living in Western societies!!

    Part of my job is directly tied to responding to hurricanes.  The “season” starts on 1 June but we really don’t start looking for much until mid August through the end of October. 

    Interesting that the only one in the Caribbean so far stayed way south & ended up in Belize.  Still way to soon to write off the season.

    That’s something I’ve noticed in Wisconsin the last several years – the season seem to have shifted by about a month or so.  We don’t seem to get cold and snow until well into November/December.  Spring comes late, June has been cool, and summer stays hot into late September.

    Ya know you are just going to cause stress and anxiety among the Global Warming believers, not to mention you are goading trans people into committing suicide with this good news.

    I read something a few weeks ago about sand/dust from the Sahara blowing into the upper reaches over the Atlantic this season, thus stifling the development of storm cells that come off the African coast.

    You have the causality backwards.   Weather happens and when there is a crisis, the powers that be do not let it go to waste.   If the powers that be want a crisis, they don’t use weather control, they ban fracking and pipelines and the use of fertilizers.

    No I don’t have it backwards. Not at all. because it is not an either/or situation.

    The PTB modify the weather. But they also have not a shred of reluctance to utilize a naturally occurring catastrophe in a manner that expands their power, their profits to selected Mega Corporations, and the control they now desire over every regular every day citizen in Western Societies.

    True.  September is when things really crank up.  Expect to see not only flooding on the coasts, but the MSM flooding the airwaves with climate change discussions . . .
