Climate Change (Man Made Influence?)

Man Controlling the Weather (Collier's Magazine, 1954; Smithsonian Mag)

“After the experiments of G.E.’s Research Laboratory, there was a feeling that humanity might finally be able to control one of the greatest variables of life on earth. And, as Cold War tensions heightened, weather control was seen by the United States as a potential weapon that could be even more devastating than nuclear warfare.

In August of 1953 the United States formed the President’s Advisory Committee on Weather Control. Its stated purpose was to determine the effectiveness of weather modification procedures and the extent to which the government should engage in such activities. Methods that were envisioned by both American and Soviet scientists—and openly discussed in the media during the mid-1950s—” (more)

Doesn’t this stuff just conjure up all manner of conspiratorial possibilities? I mean there it is, the explanation for all that has been happening. Can you imagine when the  ‘Chem Trail‘ conspiracists read this stuff what runs through their government infected minds?

Aurora Borealis History @ Space Weather

INTERESTING HISTORY ON SPACE WEATHER EVENTS

BOREALIS PHOTOGRAPHY GROUP

AURORA BOREALIS OVER KENAI ALASKA (Telegraph.UK)

“Spaceweather.com has an alert service you can subscribe to. I got it about a month ago. It sends you a message when there is magnetic storm event being triggered by a solar storm so you can be on the lookout for northern lights. Pretty cool. These are spectacular events to witness. I’ve seen several good ones and it can be so “other worldy” that you almost have to pinch yourself to make sure it’s not some kind of dream! Hollywood can’t touch this stuff!

We are heading into a solar peak and the next couple years are expected to be very active (hopefully not to active) as we are coming out an inordinately long solar minimum. Keep an eye out, if you catch a good one you will never forget it.” Wayne Mumford @ Will Fish For Work

Santa Ana Winds: An Ill Wind Blows

Over the years, it seems each Winter I hear of the Santa Ana winds blowing in California. I have simply known it to be an East to West wind confined to Southern California. But, this morning I noticed the winds are, in some places, in excess of 70 mph beyond California…like Utah, Nevada, Arizona, and Wyoming. An unfortunate, associated factor are wild fires and the devastation they cause. The attached links provide good information about the forces behind the Santa Ana winds (winds in general) and wildfires.

Fly Fishing Trip to Chile???

A good friend of mine is planning an extensive fly fishing trip to Chile with friends. In light of the recent quakes and volcanic activity, I figured I would add this interesting site to the mix…I did find another site, but it was primarily focused on the UFO’s that have been seen escaping from inner earth via the volcanos, as even they (the aliens) seem to know what calamity lays ahead. So instead I offer up this:

Scientists warn half of Chile’s active volcanoes could erupt in the near future

Fly Fishing: Evening Bite & Space Junk

Dr. Kaku's Universe @ Big Think (Michio Kaku)

Apparently, fly fishers in the Western Hemisphere are probably safe, at least in the Northern half of that hemisphere. But, anywhere else, if you are standing there fishing, you can probably rest assured you are  safe, although that 10-300# chunk of junk may create a noise as it hits the water or trees behind you. Make sure you collect that chunk, if feasible.

————————–

“Since the dawn of the Space Age, no one has been injured by falling space debris. The only confirmed case of a person being hit by space junk was in 1997 when Lottie Williams of Tulsa, Okla., was grazed in the shoulder by a small bit of debris from a discarded piece of a Delta rocket.

The odds of someone somewhere on Earth getting struck by the NASA satellite are one in 3,200. But any one person’s odds are astronomically lower— one in 21 trillion.

“You’re way more likely to be hit by lightning” than by the satellite, Mr. McDowell said.

The U.S. tracks the roughly 22,000 pieces of satellites, rockets and other junk orbiting the Earth”  WSJ
