The Blame Game
StormZilla Sandy, what a disappointment to the storm chasers and everybody else in between, trying to take advantage this “unprecedented” event. Food store shelf stockers are happy, as are the bottled water companies, Native American casino owners and the Mafia - what a windfall. It’s a rainstorm with some wind! OK, the surfs up. I am stuck here on the east coast, waiting out the storm as the threat that never showed canceled everything, except closing down the casinos. Realize this fact not fiction, that in many locals where gambling is allowed, casinos are the modern day shelters during a storm. Think about it. Plenty of cheap food, heated with lights due the fact these places have their own power generation facilities to assist never-ending gambling, security un-matched even by our own military bases, on-site medical personnel and entertainment. Wow, even during a big storm the pit bosses see fit to take away your money. Cheaper than a bed-bug ridden hotel mattress, a room with no view and a complimentary “Constipation” breakfast! My computer’s “Review & Edit” function changed the “Continental” as there ain't nothing even close that definition a rotten banana and day old bagel. And now that Sandy has disappeared inland and caused only a smidgen of damage north of New York City, the blame game hits the ring – time to duke it out. See, it started out as a storm to watch. But soon jumped lanes as a possible political game changer, so close to the 2012 presidential election, so the media saw the opportunity to make waves. Remember Katrina, that pathetic response by George Bush, that Mr. Brown had it all under control? Well Brown has already entered his 2-cents over Sandy, telling everybody to chill. I guess that is what causes corpses! About the only thing under control during that storm was harassment upon the under-privileged, those city-dwellers with skin color different. Now with Sandy, it was more of the same – the time to take advantage syndrome tied to American politics. Al Roker appeared on the tube trying to cover the storm, but in reality he was hold up at some industrial wind tunnel with a fake backdrop, at least that is what it looked like. About the only credible premeditated eminent domain declaration came from New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, as he was quick to shutdown all the interstate highways so food trucks could get to his unidentified shelter, to feed his fat face. Talk about a pathetic mouth, as what comes from the upper orifice is Rush Limbaugh hot air on Viagra. “If a hard-on lasts longer then….” And Christie is the poster child of American obesity highlighted by a lifestyle missing exercise, so he was quick to ban surfers’ rights during the storm. Interesting, that this storm was a direct hit on Atlanta City. Nothing lost in my book. OK, maybe my opinion this concern is not fair, tough it out. I live in Alaska, have been there since 76, so I have endured “real” storms. Things are changing, with goofy like weather patterns and hopefully a lesson learned in the aftermath of storm Sandy. Hopefully this can be that “straw” that makes us repent, that there is a correction course from mankind's wicked ways and means, the Gore Hypotheses. And no doubt, half the scientific community is wrong with respect to the effects of global warming. Storms have taken on increasing levels of “mystery” over the years – yet global warming continues to be but a hoax to many seriousness missing in action minded individuals. OK, I meant “dumb” minded. I know something is up with nature’s behavior, one can see it so without doubt in the birds’ feeding habits and in the great migrations – somewhat disrupted the last few years. Just look around you, the heat is on! A few weeks ago I was still engaged in repairing damage following the “big blow” in Anchorage, wind gusts tipped the scale at 20 on the Beaufort scale - or strong enough to send aloft Christie’s loaded underwear. Flying objects become dangerous projectiles, especially underwear on the loose. But with Sandy, blame for a botched prediction can be tied too – drum roll please – the United States Congress! See, over the past 200 years, Congress has wasted away $zillions$ in appropriations to “model” the weather. Since mankind is stupid with respect to an understanding of nature’s ways and means, we cannot even during modern times dream up a credible algorithm that predicts what is on the horizon. So in efforts to come close a prediction, we must collect years and years of weather related data then confiscate that data into super-computers, heavy duty number crunching electron jiving machines wherein maybe someday towards the year 9012, maybe we will have collected enough stuff to justify a prediction worth listening to. But when we have “global warming” trying to raise havoc past weather data, it places all efforts into limbo. Just when the weatherman was so close to unveiling a credible “model”, something ruined the equation and it is like starting all over again. We see it now with this latest botched prediction with Sandy. And that is where the Congress fails the grade. By not taking action to calm the weather, by declaring an all out effort to stabilize the data through legislation that proves this body of government is serious its responsibility, like reducing “our” input to the “warming” trend, the money spent trying to outsmart nature is just an exercise in futility. And for anybody that is still dumb after all these years upon this “warming”, take a trip to Alaska. I have witnessed glaciers disappearing, just down the highway from Anchorage - along with unprecedented wind storms, record breaking snow storms and interior warning trends that makes Fairbanks tame with respect to brutal weather patterns found in other parts on this nation. Yet we continue to believe not, that the weather is changing due in part our “industrialized” influence. And with the weather predictors, unfortunately they are still wrong, after years and years of trying. It has to be a crappy job and will never provide any credible output as long as we continue to do things against the environment, things that change things. And in a recent research report that seems to have been shelved without any consideration due it verdict, that “global” something exists, the fact that this information has found no interest is par for the course, as to change our course and bad habits is something nobody wants to hear about. See, this research report places the blame for the “warming” trend on our bad habits and it calls for a tax upon the American drivers. The research report calculated that there exists today many new “man-made” wind currents contributing to wind storms that are generated by a correction course upon nature’s utopia by nature in itself. It isn’t playing out this take sides game with the “warming”, nature is taking corrective action as we speak. And this research paper finds interest in the fact that it is not “industry” that is the direct perpetrator this warming, that it is our driving habits that finds most of the blame. See, over the years we have designed highways and faster cars. As cars meander around this country by the billions each and every day, this moving heat source creates a current that is now changing the natural currents surrounding the near surface of the earth. Totaling up the individual “car” currents, well in the end it creates an un-natural counter-current, which requires another counter-current by nature to combat the side effects. That is why this research has been conveniently shelved, as it ends with a hypotheses instilling the fact that the American drivers are to blame for the “global warming” trends, and should be taxed, in efforts to find a ways and means to combat this “warming” trend and at the same time act as a deterrent, to restrict the driving freedoms. So what went wrong with the weatherman’s prediction with respect to Sandy, maybe it’s your driving that caused it in the beginning. Maybe it was just nature providing a correction, from “your” driving. Now remember, “you don’t need a weathermen to tell which way the wind blows”. Well, all was on course for Sandy to be one for the history books. The storm was a combination of a Nor’easter and a hurricane. It was massive in size, and heading dead smack on course with Atlanta City, until – another drum roll please – until Chris Christie opened his big fat smacker. Honestly, what else could have averted this storm’s disastrous strength? According to the Phineas J. Whoopee Think Tank, that organization’s time-tested 3DBB computer indicates that something in the N.J. area interfered with Sandy, and what else could it have been, but Christie opening his yap for a dozen Big Macs. Remember, to every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. If science can trump that by pre-dawn attacks, then maybe so we can change the course of mighty storms. An eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth mentality. So maybe we have to thank Christie, for speaking up and out, as it appears he has the power to change the course of a mighty storm, and or is well. Hey, Chris, ever been to Alaska?
