Oh sure, there's nothing at all suspicious about the attack on the oil production facility on the (out)House of Saud (and we're already being told that production will be fully restored in a few months) while in the same time frame, Houston, Texas and all the oil facilities there are being flooded, and while there have been explosions at Mexican refining facilities, Russian biotech laboratories, Chinese chemical plants, and so on. It's all just unfortunate coincidence.
Color me skeptical. I think we're watching some sort of covert warfare going on.
And in this strange list, we can add the possibility of "another first," namely, a possibility that California could be hit by a hurricane for the first time in U.S. history, according to the following article shared by B.:
Now, here's the danger (and no, it's not plastic straws, for those of you in Sacramento):
In the entire history of our country, a hurricane has never made landfall in the state of California. So if such a thing actually happened, it would be considered to be an extremely unusual event. Well, right now there are three very dangerous tropical storms swirling in the eastern Pacific Ocean. Tropical Storm Kiko is not expected to be a serious threat to make landfall, but Tropical Storm Lorena and Tropical Storm Mario “are expected to become hurricanes by Friday as they approach the Mexican coast”. Tropical Storm Lorena is the more immediate threat, and the latest forecast is projecting that it will reach Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula by Saturday. If it maintains hurricane strength and continues to ride up the west coast, it is entirely possible that we could see something that we have never seen before. Most forecasters don’t want to talk too much about it yet, because it truly would be an unprecedented event, but there really is a chance that California could get hit by a hurricane for the very first time in U.S. history.
Why are hurricanes unheard of in California? The standard answer is:
The primary reason why hurricanes usually never make landfall in California is because the water off of the California coast is usually quite cold. The following comes from Wikipedia…
Tropical cyclones usually require very warm water to depth, generally above 26.5 °C (80 °F) extending to a depth of 50 meters (160 ft). However, the waters off California are cold even in summer. They rarely rise above 24 °C (75 °F) in near-shore southern California, and usually remain below 17 °C (63 °F) along most of the rest of the coast and outer coastal waters, although El Niño events may warm the waters somewhat. This is due primarily to the extensive upwelling of colder sub-surface waters caused by the prevailing northwesterly winds acting through the Ekman Effect. The winds drive surface water to the right of the wind flow, that is offshore, which draws water up from below to replace it. The upwelling further cools the already cool California Current which runs north to south along coastal California and even much of coastal Baja California.
It is being called “the Pacific marine heatwave of 2019”, and officials are warning that it could have very frightening implications if it does not dissipate soon. Right now, there is a vast expanse of water stretching from northern Alaska all the way to southern California where the water temperatures have rapidly risen to very dangerous levels. In fact, in some spots the water temperature is already “as much as 6 degrees Fahrenheit above normal”, and there is a tremendous amount of concern about what will happen if the water continues to become even warmer. At this point things are already so bad that we are being warned that this strange anomaly could “ravage marine life and decimate commercial fishing” all along the west coast.
This means that conditions along the west coast of the United States are now quite favorable for major storms, and it makes it much less likely that Lorena and Mario will quickly fizzle out once they track farther north.
The trouble is, what is causing that "strange anomaly"? (For a further discussion, see this article:
As this article also points out, the "strange anomaly" has scientists baffled as to what, really, is responsible for the rise in ocean temperatures off the US west coast, though we note that the climate change cult has not yet posited whale flatulence as an explanation. One possible explanation might be volcanic activity on the ocean's floor, which might be indicated by the increase of seismic activity. We could be looking at a long-term cycle that, due to the absence of records of this sort over a prolonged period, may be making this look anomalous, when in fact it might be part of a natural but hitherto unknown cycle.
But while were speculating on the end of the high octane speculation twig, there might be a more sinister one, and though completeness' sake requires its mention, it should be noted that it's a very remote possibility, and that is that this ocean warming might be due to volcanic activity, but that the latter is being triggered or stimulated deliberately. How might that be done? It would be rather like squeezing a toothpaste tube, only in this case, it would be those subterranean tubes of lava, by setting up standing waves within the Earth which would result in (1) seismic activity and (2) a shift of plates that could perhaps squeeze areas prone to volcanic activity. It would require tremendous amounts of energy, a thorough knowledge of the densities of materials inside the planet (a very dubious proposition for our purposes here), and some very careful engineering. So I very much doubt - in this instance - that this is a plausible explanation; it's just remotely possible, but not to my mind, plausible. However, on the contraindicating side, there have been mysterious pulses in Oklahoma - at regular 20 second intervals - that no one seems to know the origin of.
But for the moment, the "strange anomaly" remains just that, a strange anomaly that will remain so until we have more data to think about, and a strange anomaly that might have California in its crosshairs.
See you on the flip side...
