This is an unnatural disaster. The situation unfolding on Texas' Gulf Coast is unlike anything else in history, and it is the product of both a hotter planet and this Administration's climate denial, racism and callousness.
Denying climate science makes you unprepared for climate disasters. Here's how Trump's climate denial, racism and callousness are creating a truly unnatural disaster:
- Deregulating Big Oil’s toxic pollution. An environmental justice organizer with TEJAS, Bryan Parras, has reported strong, burning chemical smells coming from the refineries and chemical plants in East Houston. The Trump administration is rolling back regulations on Big Oil's pollution, and wants to eliminate the EPA office of Environmental Justice. These are the rules meant to protect vulnerable communities on the fence-line of huge oil refineries like the ones under siege in Texas right now.
- Cutting off immigrant communities. The Immigration's and Customs Enforcement kept running deportation checkpoints in South Texas in the lead-up to the storm, trapping undocumented immigrants looking for safety from Harvey’s destruction. ICE's aggressive policing in immigrant communities in Texas has created a culture of fear that kept many families from seeking shelter in government facilities.
- Building in the path of the storm. Just last week Trump signed an executive order instructing the federal government to ignore climate change when constructing new infrastructure projects. That means he will be putting more Americans in the path of flooding like what we're seeing now in Texas.
CLIMATE CHANGE: Geoengineering/Weather Modification VooDoo

EARTH'S # 1 PROBLEM - - with NOTHING coming even close - - IS GLOBAL WARMING, CLIMATE CHANGE.
WITH THE CARBON INDUSTRY'S CRIMINAL ACTIONS OF intentionally PLANTING BOGUS ANTI-CLIMATE-CHANGE ARGUMENTS - the major cause of letting the GW blunder of all times (the extreme arctic ice losses) happen - the downhill spiral steepened to a degree that top experts - NASA, IPCC, university research centers - say "THE TIME FOR, FINALLY, TAKING EFFECTIVE COUNTERMEASURES IS NOW OR NEVER".
Years ago, after NASA, confirmed by Global Warming scientists around the world, showed thatGlobal Warming (GW) - Climate Change - along with all the earth-destruction was due to excessive CO2 production - - the world now pumps 40 billion tons of CO2 into the atmosphere each year, which is 24 billion tons in excess of what nature/earth can handle to sustain a healthy balance.
The carbon industry - unwilling to accept profit decreases - started intentionally planting dishonest bogus anti climate change arguments. (click here) AND NOTHING GOT DONE. Possibly because they recognized their own screw-ups they involved Geoengineering/Weather Modification projects that dated back to WW-II when it became possible, with cloud seeding, to unleash ice storms on enemy troupes - - - but apparently WITHOUT checking for risks (now established as EXTREMELY SEVERE) of the spray ingredients. Kept covert (what better way than to call it "A MILITARY PROJECT") - YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO KNOW - the Geoengineering atrocities continue in the form of Chemtrails, high altitude (30,000 to 40,000 ft) spraying of toxic Aluminum, Barium, Strontium, Thallium, aerosols. Aluminum causes Alzheimer's and Autism, and in combination with the other ingredients causes INFLAMMATION (starting point for inflammatory diseases like cancer and heart disease. Besides that it increases wildfires and reduces solar panel output.
As early as 2007 warnings from AMEG (Arctic Methane Emergency Group),and supporting GW researchers alerted world governments about the arctic ice melting at an unprecedented rate, and the need to take effective countermeasures; real (AMEG, NASA, IPCC, leading university) scientists had urged to take swift countermeasures.
Due to slimy/phony carbon industry's intentional planting of bogus anti climate change arguments ($ 543 million spent by carbon interests) nothing got done.
NOW, with the ice literally gone, and only a few (melting) glacier leftovers they, the carbon Frankenstein-type VooDoo apprentices, are still using the weather modification methods. WHY, with what justification?
In the process of trying out this pseudo-scientific VooDoo, awry-gone weather modification attempts decimated the N-Dakota cattle industry by killing (inducing an ice storm) 20,000 cattle within hours, and then, with another artificial ice storm, decimating the Texas cattle industry by killing 30,000 heads of cattle. See ref. (2) Either ignorant about possible risks of the chemtrail ingredients on human health (the ingredients are highly toxic, induce diseases), or totally oblivious - or just give a damn - about safety checks that are required for such large-scale projects, they (whoever THEY are) are releasing these atrocities onto the population at large.
Previous to the ice losses, the sun energy reflected by the pristine arctic ice had been calculated at 10 to the 21st Joules, or (using a metaphor) 4 Hiroshima atomic bombs/second (or 400,000 Hiroshima atomic bombs/day). And now some VooDoo apprentices want to balance this extreme large amount of energy by dumping toxins into the sky that induce Alzheimer's, Autism, increase wildfires, kill trees, and reduce solar panel output by 20% ? COMMITTING SUICIDE WOULD BE JUST A LITTLE FASTER!
BUT IT GETS EVEN BETTER/WORSE: NASA Satellite pictures - from high up there, looking down at earth, caught the Geoengineering apprentices laying large squares (involving 30+ spray planes, flying side by side) of toxic, disease-inducing, solar panel output-reducing Chemtrails.
So, why are these projects kept covert? It actually is a "firewall" against people finding out who is doing this apprentice VooDoo, who authorized it, and (most likely) to discover that special interests - the carbon ElToroPooPoo-ers - are pulling the strings, while ignoring the health- and environment-destructing risks to the population at large, covering up that our own clean energy experts/projects - of which we have numerous, and highly successful ones - have NOT been given a chance to solve the problems, AND ALL THIS TO SUSTAIN THE OBSCENE CARBON PROFITS.
Let's take a look at the greed-based catastrophe - THE WORLDWIDE BLUNDER OF THE CENTURY - allowing the arctic ice losses to happen.
Earth once had two air conditioners (see slideshow below) , the ice masses at the Arctic and Antarctic. The cooled air at these opposite poles, together with earth's rotation and 85% of the sun's energy reflected back into space by the pristine arctic ice, had determined well-defined worldwide temperatures and weather patterns.
Now, with the arctic ice masses gone and only a few (ever decreasing, covered with pollution soot) glacier left-overs, new – devastating – weather patterns (all predicted; from the floods, to the code 4 Hurricanes, droughts, doubling of large wildfires, from 12,000 to 24,000+/year) have ALL started to come true.
AMEG (click here), the arctic methane emergency group – had urged, again and again, world leaders to take countermeasures to prevent the arctic ice losses, and warned the world about the coming risks as early as 2008, presented all their calculations in 2011, and again in 2012, pinpointing the near 100% arctic ice losses to September of 2015, but the Greed Machine of special interest$ planted bogu$ arguments to confuse the issues, and nothing got done to counter this devastation.

Cambridge U scientists calculated that delays in taking effective countermeasures would skyrocket costs to $ 60 trillion. WHO WILL PAY FOR IT - a) THE CARBON INTERESTS WITH THE PROFITS THEY MADE, OR b) GOVERNMENTS WITH PEOPLE'S TAX DOLLARS? Naturally, its b), and with this you have the story of money and greed.
THIS WAS THE BIGGEST CLIMATE CHANGE BLUNDER! Why? The 85% of sun energy that used to be reflected by the pristine arctic ice - now warming earth, and thawing permafrost areas, releasing megatons of methane - was calculated to the equivalent of 4 Hiroshima atomic bombs per second, or 400,000 PER DAY. WAS ANYBODY AWARE OF THE FACT THAT THE 5TH EARTH EXTINCTION PERIOD - THE PERMIAN - WAS METHANE-CAUSED?
But there are other- much worse - problems: the steady rise in temperatures enhances the GW effects of CO2 and CH4 by simply picking up moisture; this, in physics, is known as the "Tyndall Effect," and thus ever steepening the GW downhill spiral by the day.
TO SOLVE OUR PROBLEMS WE NEED TO - GREATLY - CUT DOWN ON CO2 PRODUCTION. We have all the solutions, but the greedy bastard special industries - carbon? Oil? - use all their powers not to let it happen ( and with this the special interest enter the realm of criminal action). Because of this alone they should be exposed, taken to court, and held responsible.

Sadly enough, in attempting to find ANY justification for these scientifically brainless, illogical, thermodynamics-violating, Geoengineering blunders, in search of a common denominator, one is stuck with only one possible interpretations: Since nothing that is being done makes ANY sense, that only leaves us with a – actually biblical – interpretation, namely that all of this has boiled down to a simple truth: the battle of the Light against the Dark, i.e. Good versus Evil.
And we are not the only ones coming to this conclusion. Pope Francis, genuinely brilliant, suggested the same.
