Feverish Earth - additions

The eight storm, Harvey, approaches Bermuda «as we speak». The National Hurricane Center in Miami will be using the Greek alphabet to extend the number of names this year, as the latest projection says the number of storms is expected to exceed the names on the list. The new data totally blows away this year’s storm forecast.

And Global Warming is fueling these numerous and nastier storms, according to more and more new reports.

The tropical Atlantic Ocean temperature is currently 3 degrees above normal, stressing the truth about the current and upcoming global cataclysm.

In Portugal 1500 firemen are fighting against twenty forest fires, «the worst in memory». Those words are also being used to describe the drought. Warm winds from Spain makes the temperature rise to 45 degrees Celsius in the shade. The water supplies are dwindling rapidly. 53000 people are dependent on water from trucks. According to the Portuguese agricultural department there have been 4353 forest fires so far this year.

The Hurricane Ivan generated a wave more than 27 meters high - the tallest and most intense wave ever measured. It would have dwarfed a ten-story building and had the power to snap a ship in half, but it never reached land. Sensors on the ocean floor recorded the wave, as Hurricane Ivan passed over the Gulf of Mexico last September. The observations prove that prior estimates for extreme waves are too low, scientists warn in the magazine Science.

Civilization got ten years left, tops. Good riddance. It's time to prepare, to begin training in earnest for its collapse, and our glorious return to nature.
