Heat Wave

The last time there was a heat wave in the United States as severe as this summer (2012) was in the 1930's, the Dust Bowl years. Science is debating the cause, global warming versus a natural phenomenon.

There is a difference between using technology to measure climate data and actually being there. As climatologists state, clouds play an important part in weather. You can measure, and measure, and measure, but if you leave the human component out, you will only get a partial picture. Talk to older people, they will tell you that the skies are different. They will talk about the bygone days of beautiful skies with fluffy white clouds that were seen all over the sky. They will talk about the soft light even on a sunny day. Now it is bright blues skies with few clouds, and it has been that way for several years.

We have to combine weather patterns and  with human actions. If we examine past droughts, heat waves, hurricanes, tornadoes, and monsoons, and then add human conditions, would we read those disasters in the same way? Would past disasters have been more severe? Man has created billions of reflective surfaces, and chopped down many forests that absorb C02. Man has filled the air with C02 from manufacturing and transportation, and man has filled the oceans, and the world with junk, which affects wildlife and the ecosystem. All these things have to be taken into account, along with atmospheric and space conditions.

 We must look for solutions instead of spending money and time on arguments over cause.

Air conditioners and elevators that do not work are not good for business and the economy. Crops that fail bring problems, especially when we have not saved seven years of grain, as was done in the ancient past.

In destroying many parts of our planet, will we be held captive and destroyed by climate change and pollution? If the fishing grounds outside Somalia were not destroyed by other countries, Somalia may not have resorted to piracy and found it to be more profitable, and economically disastrous for the rest of the world.

The dust bowl had a man-made destructive component, as well as a climatic component, so the blame is not entirely on a cycle of nature.

In the 1930's and 1940's the aspects were extremely difficult, as they are now. Uranus and Pluto were in a malefic aspect then, and they are in a malefic aspect now, (a square). We have several more years of this challenging square aspect; this aspect will not complete until 2017. We have a choice, we can complain about the challenges, or we can try to find solutions globally and personally.
