Ophelia Will Severely Test “Luck of the Irish”

Ophelia Will Severely Test “Luck of the Irish”: 1 of 2 // Published on Oct 15, 2017

People usually focus on hurricane categories to get an idea as to how severe a storm will be.  This is dangerous thinking, including the case of Ophelia directly hitting Ireland.

Sure, it is possible (even likely) that Ophelia’s rotation speed may drop below Cat 1 (75 mph = 121 km/hr) at landfall, but Ireland is in the right-front-quadrant where speeds relative to the ground are much higher, since the rotation speed and forward speeds add up, and damage is proportional to wind speed to the power 2.7; not good.

Also, storm surge will funnel between Ireland and Great Britain and be greatly amplified.

Hurricane Ophelia Makes a Beeline to Ireland

Hurricane Ophelia Makes a Beeline to Ireland / Published on Oct 13, 2017

Enormous consequences of abrupt climate change are coming home to roost. Here I discuss the latest strangeness in our Climate Casino, namely Hurricane Ophelia that is making a beeline towards Ireland and the UK.

Very high ocean temperatures are allowing hurricanes like Ophelia to move farther northward and maintain their strength.  Slower and wavier jet streams are stalling hurricanes (Harvey), and huge atmospheric energy release are causing very large and powerful superstorms (Irma, Maria). All because of abrupt climate change greatly warming the Arctic.

Withstanding Nature’s Onslaught // Oct 11, 2017

We all lead busy lives trying to earn a living to provide for our families; put food on the table & a shelter over our heads. It is easy for us to lose sight of how our world is changing around us.

Of course that can all change in an instant. We can be wrenched from order & routine into disorder & chaos. A massive hurricane can level or flood our city. Huge, fast moving wildfires can torch thousands of homes in a few hours. How can we become more resilient in the face of this onslaught from nature? Let me explain.

Were The California Wildfires Deliberately Set?

Right image AFTER: Particulates (PM10) in air at 2100 Local time. Note that the particulates have all appeared in multiple locations within the space of 1 hour. This seems suspicious to me, assuming that the data is correct [1].

Were The California Wildfires Deliberately Set? // Published on Oct 10, 2017

About a week before the California wildfires erupted, I wrote a post titled:  ‘Climate Change Magnified MegaFires‘ with a video  called Amplification of MegaFires from Climate Change‘.

In this video I discuss horrendous and ongoing California fires.  These wildfires have killed multiple people (100s are still missing) and destroyed thousands of buildings. In examining Earth Nullschool data on air particulates, it seems that the fires appeared in multiple locations within the space of one hour.  This seems suspicious, if the data is accurate.

A few hours after the uploading of my video to YouTube and this blog post, this link ‘PG&E power lines linked to wine country fires’ (article in full, at link, a selection), to a possible fire cause was posted to my Facebook pages. Perhaps power lines were knocked over in multiple places igniting the fires?

As the first reports came in Sunday night of numerous fires that would grow into one of the most destructive wildfire disasters in California history, emergency dispatchers in Sonoma County received multiple calls of power lines falling down and electrical transformers exploding.

‘In all, according to a review of emergency radio traffic by the Bay Area News Group, Sonoma County dispatchers sent out fire crews to at least 10 different locations across the county over a 90-minute period starting at 9:22 pm to respond to 911 calls and other reports of sparking wires and problems with the county’s electrical system amid high winds‘.

[1].  Please note: Earth Nullschool has the fire starting between 2017-10-09 20:00 and 2017-10-09 21:00. Published reports say the fire started Sunday night which would be 2017-10-08, so I think the Nullschool date is wrong (and is a day behind)?

Hurricane Nate Takes US By Surprise

Hurricane Nate Takes US By Surprise // Published on Oct 6, 2017

Hurricane Nate seemed to pop-up out of nowhere, in contrast to Superstorm Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria that took their time chewing up the Caribbean and Southern USA.

Nate is not to be underestimated, as I explain. It has intensified much faster than expected, and poses a large risk to southern USA states. I give you the tools and know-how to track it for yourself. I will not be surprised if it is a major hurricane when it has landfall in the US.

Arctic Sea Ice: Everything You Need To Know

Arctic Sea Ice: Everything You Need To Know // Published on Oct 5, 2017

Every summer now, there are many people anxiously monitoring the seasonal melt-back of the Sea Ice that covers the Arctic Ocean. One of these summers, likely within the next 5 years we will end up with no sea ice left at the end of the summer. This “blue-ocean” event will change our climate & lives, in numerous ways.

I give you the knowledge and links to see for yourself what is happening to the Arctic Sea Ice over the 2017 melt season, and discuss what happens next.

Climate Change Magnified MegaFires


Amplification of MegaFires from Climate Change // Published on Oct 3, 2017

Wildfires are increasing in frequency of occurrence, severity, and duration around the globe.  There are more fires, they’re consuming larger areas, burning hotter and spreading much faster, burning for much longer times and fire seasons are longer by many months, and they are also occurring in places where they never did before, such as Greenland.

Climate change, with its extreme weather variability from torrential rains to extreme heat waves and droughts are smoking guns.

Jet Stream Crossing North Pole, South Pole, and Equator // Published on Oct 2, 2017

Jet stream behaviour is vitally important to weather patterns and climate around the Earth.  Abrupt climate changed jet streams are doing very crazy things these days, including going directly across the North Pole, also crossing the South Pole, as well as crossing the Equator (as I have shown in previous videos).

I teach you how to use Earth Nullschool to examine examples for yourself for each of these bizarre jet stream behaviours over the last few months.

After the Superstorm: Relief Efforts and Resilience

After the Superstorm: Relief Efforts & Resilience // Published on Sep 27, 2017

It seems like our planet is under siege by extreme weather events that have been increasing in frequency, severity and duration.  Superstorm Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, & Maria have shattered lives and savaged infrastructure in Texas (notably Houston), Florida (especially Key West) and the Caribbean (Puerto Rico, US & British Virgin Islands, Dominica, Barbuda), etc…

For many people, the aftermath (without food, water, medicine, power, communication,..) is far worse and much more dangerous than the actual storm.  We must do better with relief efforts.  And make resilience one of our top priorities as we move forward.
