I am still and always in awe of the resilience of nature. While we are still on the mend from spring weather chaos, the birds and the spiders are ambivalent, the flowers return, the roof gets fixed, the windshields repaired, the debris cleared, eventually.
But I never want to take this marvelous regeneration of nature for granted, because I actually don’t know for sure how far we can rule nature with an iron fist before we’ve gone beyond the point of no return. I don’t think anyone knows this, and I highly mistrust anyone who says they do.
That’s why it’s so important we as the public are informed on what’s really going on with the weather.
In our case, planning and patience, and saving for the rainy days, have been key when it comes to us mere humans in recovering from weather catastrophe. Three times now we’ve been able to practice, so we’re getting pretty good at it.
Three times, three different locations, good situational training, right? And we didn’t have to deal with injury or serious trauma, just run of the mill damages compared to the tragedies that millions around the world are being subjected to with ‘science’s’ drive to ‘own the weather’.
I am humbled by the resilience of the enemies of these global tyrants, innocent victims not of Mother Nature, but of psychotic, destructive fellow humans who couldn’t care less that another town, city or village has been flooded, droughted, sprayed, poisoned, electrocuted, or whatever other nightmare they can inflict on the world’s populations.
Handy Hubby is by far the number one reason why the wee homestead is making any progress at all in recovering after the spring ‘tornado’ or that I continue to trudge along in my own healing. He is still clearing the topped and uprooted trees from just around our house, in miserable heat. It will be another year, at least, before all the paths can be cleared and the fencing project continued.
I get to ponder and research from the comfort of the couch in the cool air condition those bigger questions, lucky lady that I am: How did this happen, again? What is really going on with the weather? Is this crucial question of our crazy climate really just an argument between Believers and Deniers?
The well-framed climate debate continues on mainstream and ‘alternative’ channels, keeping folks well-honed in on the myth that the weather chaos is either: A. Man-made climate change or B. Mother Nature.
Both sides insist the science data is firmly on their side. Those are the two prescribed swim lanes, to veer from them is to leave yourself vulnerable to every shark in the ocean.
Where’s your data?! NOAA says tornados are drastically reduced in numbers! NOAA says there are no big hurricanes for a decade! NOAA says the climate won’t burn up in 12 years! Don’t believe the United Nations shills—they try to manipulate you with children! Believe US!
Seriously? Is this a game of ping-pong?
70+ years of weather modification never hits the headlines and rarely hits the alternative circuit either?
Yet just a few decades ago it was commonly mentioned in the news, by scientists and politicians. I wonder why now, suddenly, so few are interested in the science of weather modification? Why do the fields of weather science and climate science seem to rarely overlap, though they are clearly exceptionally inter-related?
For this reason too, it’s clear that a homestead without livestock is at a serious disadvantage for several reasons, not just ready fertilizer, but also “food” insurance, because a bad year of crops can turn into two, or more, and animals are less work, less reliant on the weather, and can get by on grass or in the case of pigs, scraps and forage, when required.
Weather Modification Associations around the country are full of ex-military, isn’t that interesting, you’d think this would be a talking point for the media.
Crickets . . . Big surprise.
