Global Warming in Action:  Unprecedented Events

 

We often  wonder why  human beings refuse to  comprehend the significance of  unprecedented events.   Is it not logical to observe, interpret, apply logic, and finally, act accordingly? Unprecedented events in 2018  such as record temperatures and perhaps  the largest wildfires in history occurred.   Destruction of homes, property, infrastructure,  habitat for animals. A record fire season in western Canada (again) this time in B.C.,   consumed thousands upon thousands of hectares of pristine forest. Thousands of  hectares in single blazes as major fires merged to become horrific beasts from hell.  Heat, smoke, fear, lives lost, major evacuations.  Reminiscent of  Fort MacMurray  a horrific  2016 blaze  that burned subdivisions to the foundations, scorched parts of that city and consumed 5,895 square kilometers of forest     (589,552 hectares or 1, 456,815 acres). The Fort Mac fire took 15 months to extinguish. Wasn't that fire convincing enough for  you?

Further east,  (2018) the Parry Sound wildfire in Ontario threatened to cut off Hwy 17,  Canada's major east-west traffic route.   California had unbelievable heat, major wildfires. with record destruction.   Here's a hint; do excessively-prolonged periods of super-hot, dry weather with no rainfall over vast areas of the continent not suggest change?

Fires were not Enough.

  Fires were not enough. Major rainstorms and floods occurred in Toronto.   Imagine that.  And unprecedented  tornadoes —including  Ottawa of all places. How destructive,  almost  predictable, with weather patterns warming and unstable.  There were no fatalities, but some might suggest ominous warnings for rotten politicians and selfish  "weather deniers" alike. Let us not go there.  Should we generously suggest  pretending such events are only the result of the capricious, playful mind of Mother Nature? Perhaps not.

 

 Unprecedented Events-Not Just in  North America.

More out-of-control wildfires. Heat. In Greece. Spain. Even north of the Arctic circle.   A once-in-a-century drought in Australia.  Record, unbelievably hot scorching  temperatures.  Only 40C, you say?  50C ? How hot can that  be? Very. Without rainfall, without relief,   heat can be fatal to people and animals alike.  So...  100+ days without any rain, not a drop?  Australians necessarily cull  sheep and cattle herds. No rain, no water, no feed, little hope, mate, so dig in.  On massive sheep ranches, survival of prize  breeding stock is essential.   Ensuring recovery, when and if the rains come. The Australian way of surviving difficulty, mate...

 

Hurricanes. Typhoons, Earthquakes...Unprecedented Events.

Now for the hurricane season.  Florence , a deadly  hurricane became a massive tropical storm, sweeping up the eastern seaboard of the USA. Wreaking havoc, flooding, massive  destruction from deadly winds and other nasty hurricane stuff. Awesome to watch. On television.  In real life, not so much.  Unprecedented, massive evacuations of millions.  Dank, dirty, contaminated water already metres deep from the storm surge,   aggravated by record rainfall  . As much as  1.27 metres ( 50 inches) of rain were dumped upon some parts of the Carolinas  —pouring  into rivers already washing away homes , streets, highways and lives, flooding reaching  record levels, water trying to return to the sea.

Harrowing rescues by exhausted rescuers. Deaths. Forty-four fatalities  at the latest count.  And the tally may  not finished yetWhy?  Havoc  and death can remain undiscovered in vast areas of massive flooding. Repairs to homes and businesses are calculated in the billions as waters recede.  Slowly. Repairs to some  flooded homes and infrastructure may be possible; for others, loss is catastrophic, total.  Americans will rebuild. For next time. Repeat.

Do we change our minds when confronted with fact?  No. How about the 'fact' of Florence?  A hurricane that was approximately 600 km. across in size. Unbelievable.

Or how about the simultaneous and gigantic  typhoon  Mangkhut  , much larger than Florence, closer to 900 km. across?   Much bigger 'facts' battering the Philippines on the other side of the world?  Or is that event, like other foreign disasters,  just  'out of sight, out of mind?'  Not for millions of people ill-equipped to deal with the aftermath of flooding, landslides, loss of homes and devastating winds.

Do we 'get it' yet?  

If not, it seems we soon will.  Weather patterns appear to be surreptitiously  creeping northward.  Ask the people of  Ottawa and the surrounding area to Gatineau, Quebec. Ask how they feel about surveying  the shattered remains of their lives,  homes, possessions,  cars, trees, parks, streets and infrastructure. No  fewer than SIX tornadoes struck.  Perhaps shocked residents should be asking themselves if the annual, almost predictable  destruction of  terrifying tornado alley is  moving in from the United States of America. Unwanted imports?  Imagine that possibility.  

*Batten the hatches.  Earthquakes and Tsunamis...right on time... Indonesia was recently  hit by another earthquake, 7.4 magnitude...death tolls in the many hundreds,  and counting...

Connect the dots...will we ever take responsibility for our part in global warming and natural disasters?

Chaos in Canada, a Handy Guide for the Future

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailFacebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail© 2018 by Raymond Alexander Kukkee  
The inverted Maple Leaf flag of Canada --a symbol of distress

Chaos in Canada --or Distress?

Chaos in Canada:  A handy guide for the future?

   

A handy guide to disaster in the future? Would that be more accurate?  Chaos in Canada, observable today — could not only  be a handy, but predictable guide for events in the future.  It will not be necessary to guess where  chaos in Canada is heading.  Predictable. Perhaps the title should be Chaos for Dummies. Chaos for The Apathetic. Chaos for the Foolish.  Chaos for the Remnants of Canadian Civilization. Chaos Directs the Demise of Canada.

Is  chaos observable in Canada today  —a guide, a template for the future? You decide.  Step by step...a handy guide to chaos... We must wonder who would want a handy guide to chaos in Canada. The prime minister?   Americans? Islamist invaders? The average family-fan-driving mom? Non-thinking think tanks, UN elitists, Hollywood, ANTIFA, globalists,  Justin's 'little friends'?

Chaos Comes in many Forms

Chaos comes in many tangled  forms but let's be brave and attempt to list them.  How many do you recognize? Have you witnessed, participated, or been subjected to these? Would you care to add any?

Environmental changes observable. Climate change, (personally-believed or not).  Extreme weather events. Catastrophes. Economic disasters.  Fallout from insatiable corporate greed, power, and corruption unchallenged.

Inexplicable political events and trends.  Traitorous political activity in government which  is Treason.   Instability of foreign nations, manufactured or otherwise.  Invasion of  western sovereignty by incompatible cultures via internationally manufactured "refugee crises".   Verifiable creeping intrusion into domestic governments by elitist, globalists, Islamists and other elite foreign interests. Rats in the woodpile.

Unwanted social manipulation by bureaucrats and politicians in office. Lunacy and emotional instability (expressed in unprecedented human behaviour and the trend to violence. ) Less than ideal "idealism". Mass populism, violent demonstrations by the so-called 'peaceful'.  Unexpected and unwanted results from elections...manufactured trade wars with allies.  Distrust by historical allies and friendly next-door nations.

Should chaos in Canada be a surprise when politicians are clearly more interested in promoting their own personal agendas? Obsession with gender, of all things. What's in your pants, dearie?  Obsession with "identity". Obsession with 'feelings'. Obsession with drama and ga-ga selfies.  Self-entitlement.  Divisiveness. Intolerance.  M103.  The scam contrived and labeled "Islamophobia". Hate speech. Hate crimes.  ALL encouraged by government. Have no doubt, the removal  of freedom of speech is the goal —to justify "action" and 'clampdowns' by this devious, untrustworthy government. which clearly displays an arrogant tendency to dictatorship.

The handy guide itself.... becomes damning and  hideous. Good grief.

Backlash and Predictability

The backlash to trendyNeoliberal Fascism and questionable ideology is not a surprise, nor should it be. Is chaos predictable as history itself?   Are the forces of evil once again growing as a supreme test of humanity?  Let your faith be your advisor.   How about ...what goes around, comes around?  Reality  and necessity eventually overtake unrealistic, grandiose manipulation of any country by fools. Shall then, the predictability of chaos —actually be what  guides us?

We Remain  Polite even with the onset of Chaos in Canada...But...

All of these factors and others have  inevitably contributed to the onset of chaos and self-doubt  in Canada.  Worth noting and repeating. Canadians may be polite but... we're not immune to upheaval, disaster, or self-inflicted wounds.  We Canadians are quite capable of action should the onset of  civil war,  so common in other countries, becomes  necessary.  Do our 'politicians' not recognize that fact?

We're NOT Different.

We're not different.  With callous, arrogant, careless leadership Canadians  can realistically expect  the eventual coming of the same  calibre of events as those occurring elsewhere on the globe.  With weak and dishonest, distrusted and disliked  leadership which is so offended at being  called out  in Canada, we are  no longer  immune to the  reality, brutality and gob-smacking  instability of  unpredictable tarriffs and economic warfare, much less  historical violence, terrorism, murder and mayhem  so often displayed in Europe and  the Middle East.  Balkanization of Canada itself.   Terrorism. Let that sink in.  Demonstrations, riots.  Violence.  Why?

An epic fail in political  leadership, domestic and social political foolishness has occurred in Canada.    As  if social and domestic policy failure are  not bad enough, an immigration crisis is now full-blown and has already become far too problematic.   At the invitation of the Prime Minister himself,  Muslim and other illegal immigrants walk across uncontrolled border points at will.

ISIS fighters, enemies of Canada, return freely to Canada, recklessly endangering the lives of Canadians and the stability of Canada itself. Unbelievably, at the invitation of Justin Trudeau himself. Why? Divisiveness encouraged. Intolerance, terrorism, a culture of fear are a delight to this 'leader' --and his 'government.

The problems of the middle East and its traditional, stubborn, disagreeable, dominating and incompatible 'cultures' are on the march right into Canada. With the blessing of the UN, the EU, and the  confused,  treasonous and delusional "Prime Minister" Trudeau ,  his personal agenda, and his poisonous appointees, who endlessly prove they will simply thumb their noses at  the traditions, laws,  blessings, inclusiveness  and security of Canada. By destroying it.  Add that to the 'handy guide' and it becomes eminently more clear, more predictable.

Is Chaos in Canada  the new Normal? ...er....um....er...Yes.

The new social confusion trade wars, the potential failure and end of NAFTA brought on by incompetent negotiation and epic failures of trust. Genuine international distrust. Hurt feelings.  Unwanted, uncontrolled immigration. Blossoming cultural domination by an unwanted,  bitter, incompatible, archaic  ideology.  Open bordersBottom line, chaos in Canada courtesy of politicians completely  out of touch with the nation, the people,  the past, the future, all  embellished  with  disastrous economic and unwanted social manipulation.

How handy!

Enjoy.  How handy! A guide to not only Chaos in Canada  but a guide to the Fragmentation of Canada itself.  Two for the price of ONE.
