In the thumbnail, the picture on the right. The white streak in the pyroclastic blast is the steam from Spirit Lake after it was vaporized. Those pictures were taken from the top of Mt. Adams, another volcano.

Do you think you'll ever realize that using "evidence" from an oil industry climate denialism channel is like tobacco companies paying doctors to say smoking is good for you and believing in it?

It's people like you who killed all the dragons and unicorns!

 

Did you ever stop long enough to think about all the harm, statements like yours might cause?

Sure the entire western half of the USA is about to run out of fresh water.

But did you ever consider the well being of those of us up north, those who are going to sell the USA all the fresh water they need, at a very reasonable price? I think a starting price point of WTI is fair price and we can go from there.

Or those of us who are going to grow crops to sell to the USA when their native crops fail?

 

Please stop considering the so-called "greater good" when pointing out the obvious errors in an average American citizens logic.

Sure the results of such an omission might be bad for any people living below the 45th parallel, but have you considered how important climate change denial might be for those of us living above the 45th parallel?

 

Who cares if it's "real" or not, all that matters is that Canada will own the USA in 20 years.

Much of the American Southwest does not get much rain. That is why much of the American Southwest was (and still is) a desert when Europeans arrived in that area. Drought in the American West is not uncommon and we had a bad one in the 1970s.

The West without Water: What Can Past Droughts Tell Us About Tomorrow?


As bad and worrisome as these more recent historical droughts in California and the West were, they pale in comparison to events uncovered in the geological record.


A glance into the history of the Southwest reminds us that the climate and rainfall patterns have varied tremendously over time, with stretches of drought many decades longer than the one we are experiencing now. Long dry stretches during the Medieval centuries (especially between 900 and 1350 CE) had dramatic effects on the native peoples of the Southwest (the ancestral Pueblo, Hohokam, and Sinagua), including civilizational collapse, violence, malnutrition, and forced social dislocation. These earlier Americans are a warning to us.


The past 150 years, which we have used as our baseline for assumptions about rainfall patterns, water availability for agriculture, water laws, and infrastructure planning, may in fact be an unusually wet period.


Powell published Report On The Lands Of The Arid Regions of the United States [1879], a careful assessment of the region’s capacity to be developed. In it, Powell argued that very little of the West could sustain agriculture. In fact, his calculations suggested that even if all the water in western streams were harnessed, only a tiny fraction of the land could be irrigated.


When Powell presented his findings to Congress, politicians howled. Powell found himself denounced by pro-development forces, including railroads and agricultural interests. Prescient as Powell’s study has proved to be, it was almost entirely ignored at the time.


In the 20th century, the single driest year (rivaling the 2013-2014 water year) was the drought of 1976-1977, extending across the entire state of California and into the Northwest, the Midwest, and the Canadian Prairie region north of Montana.

 

As bad and worrisome as these more recent historical droughts in California and the West were, they pale in comparison to events uncovered in the geological record.

With the second year of cooling in the Pacific Ocean we can expect more drought in the SW in the near future.

La Niña is back. What does that mean for California’s drought?
Sept. 11, 2020


A La Niña climate pattern has been slowly building over the summer, and now we’re in “strengthening La Niña territory,” climatologist Bill Patzert said Thursday.  What does that mean for California and the Southwest?


“Typically speaking, La Niñas turn out dry for Southern California,” Patzert said.  La Niña is the cool phase of a climate phenomenon called the El Niño-Southern Oscillation, often referred to as ENSO.

ENSO: Recent Evolution, Current Status and Predictions
October 11, 2021


A transition from ENSO-neutral to La Niña is favored in the next couple of months, with a 70-80% chance of La Niña during the Northern Hemisphere winter 2021-22.


The latest weekly SST departures are:
Niño 4       -0.7ºC
Niño 3.4    -0.6ºC
Niño 3       -0.3ºC
Niño 1+2    0.1ºC

New Study Ties Solar Variability To The Onset Of Decadal La Nina Events:
April 5, 2021
The scientific community has been unclear on the role that solar variability plays in influencing weather and climate events here on Earth. This study shows there's reason to believe it absolutely does and why the connection may have been missed in the past. The research was funded by the National Science Foundation, which is the National Center for Atmospheric Research's sponsor, and the NASA Living With a Star program.

The footprint of the 11‐year solar cycle in Northeastern Pacific SSTs and its influence on the Central Pacific El Niño:
It is found that more CP El Niño events occur during the active phase of the solar cycle, while more CP La Niña events occur during the inactive phase.

Solar cycle 24 ended and we are now in cycle 25. Cycle 24 saw the lowest solar activity in 100 years. What can we expect with cycle 25?

 

 

Block Quote

 NASA (June 12, 2019)  - The forecast for the next solar cycle [cycle 25] says it will be the weakest of the last 200 years. The maximum of this next cycle – measured in terms of sunspot number, a standard measure of solar activity level – could be 30 to 50% lower than the most recent one. The results show that the next cycle will start in 2020 and reach its maximum in 2025.

Shush Klaatu!

 

All anyone living below the 45th parallel needs to know is that Canada will support them with enough food and water to survive (as long as you do what we say).

Who cares if things died or went extinct 1,000's or millions of years ago because of draught?

All that matters is that we will have everything America needs to survive and that we won't ask too much for it (in the grand scheme of things).

 

Canada looks forward to controlling our American minion puppets!

And lets be honest here, you want us to control all of your actions anyways. Am I right? Or am I right?

So it's win-win for everyone!

Stop overreacting, mankind will live on for more centuries, maybe even for many more millenniums to come.

All that will change is how we exist, but that's not any different then how we exist now as compared to 2,000 or even 10,000 years ago.

 

Change will happen, accept it.
