Fire Earth

Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

To Prove ‘Fertility,’ NASA Had to Rape Moon

NASA ‘Lacrosse’ Team Confirms Moon Water

When the Scientists Take the Taxpayers to the Cleaners Series

The argument that the moon is a dry, desolate place no longer holds water. —NASA

Well, whoever argued that in the first place, and which one of you thought of that smug opening line?

“Secrets the moon has been holding, for perhaps billions of years, are now being revealed to the delight of scientists and space enthusiasts alike.” [Watch out folks, you’re being included, and that always comes at a price.]

It’s a painful day for science, when NASA Lunar scientists, behaving like lunatic coal-mining engineers with a mountaintop removal company, blow up a mountaintop to find coal. [And how does finding water on the moon help a dying species back here on earth? FEWW]

If finding water on the moon is so important to the evolution of mankind and advancement of his science, and it isn’t by any stretch of imagination, why not sending a probe to look for water.

There’s something inherently violent about NASA ‘Lacrosse’ team and their methods: To prove moon was ‘fertile’ they had to rape her.

“We’re unlocking the mysteries of our nearest neighbor and by extension the solar system. It turns out the moon harbors many secrets, and LCROSS has added a new layer to our understanding,” said Michael Wargo, chief lunar scientist at NASA Headquarters in Washington.

As any high school student could probably tell you, most of celestial objects known to us contain some ice. The comets are half ice. [And that ought to reveal some of the “secrets” of universe… Also try Jupiter, Saturn… It’s believed that water vapor is contained in a jet ejected from a supermassive black hole at the center of MG J0414+0534 galaxy. FEWW]

“We are ecstatic,” said Anthony Colaprete, LCROSS project scientist and principal investigator at NASA’s Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, Calif. “Multiple lines of evidence show water was present in both the high angle vapor plume and the ejecta curtain created by the LCROSS Centaur impact. The concentration and distribution of water and other substances requires further analysis, but it is safe to say Cabeus holds water.”

Don’t forget to take your bathing towel, buster.

To successfully venture into the galaxy, humankind needs a highly refined philosophical approach to the reason, strategy and outcome, the basis of which would determine the right method and appropriate technology. Mountaintop removal ‘science’ is not a valid option.

Further, any attempt that does not satisfy the philosophical criteria would be doomed to failure in the long term.

If this is  the best they’ve got and that’s the route they are taking, don’t hold your breath for NASA lunar missions.

Deadly Weather in Your Area?

Extremes of Weather Wreak Havoc Across the Globe

A for Adelaide heat wave (Australia)

Adelaide’s extreme hot weather has officially entered the record books as the city’s first ever heatwave in November.

Adelaide has experienced a week of soaring temperatures in the 35 – 40 degrees Celsius range.

More bushfire and sandstorms? Lots of it!

“You take one look at the satellite images of Australia and wonder when! Because it looks so imminent!” A reader commenting on the future of Australia as a habitable continent.

B for Beijing’s November Snow [over-seeding the clouds?]

At least 21 people have perished in heavy snow in China including four children who reportedly died when two school canteens collapsed, China’s official news agency Xinhua reported.

“As of 5 p.m. Friday, more than 9,000 buildings collapsed and about 190,400 hectares of crops were affected, causing direct economic losses of around 4.5 billion yuan (about 659 million U.S. dollars), ministry said.”

Nearly 8 million people have been affected by the snow, of whom about 160,000 people had to be evacuated from their homes.

A work shed damaged by heavy snow is seen in Zhengzhou, capital of central China’s Henan Province, Nov. 12, 2009. Six people were killed and 34 others got hurt or sick during the recent heavy snowfall in Henan, according to the provincial government. (Xinhua/Zhao Peng). Image may be subject to copyright.

F for flooded mid-Atlantic coastal areas

Nor’easter fed on remnants of Storm Ida battered  mid-Atlantic coast

The governors of Virginia, Delaware and New York called up the National Guard to help with evacuations of hundreds of people using special trucks that operate in high water, the US Defense Department reported.

A coastal storm fed on remnants of Idea developed into a nor’easter with hurricane strength winds battering the mid-Atlantic coast from northeast North Carolina to New Jersey. It felled trees, flooded vast areas and left at least 5 dead with another three people missing.

M for the most powerful storm of the year to strike Britain

Britain was struck by “the most powerful storm of the year” yesterday as forecasters predicted fierce winds and flooding in many areas.

“For England it is probably likely to be the strongest winds this year,” British Met Office said. “It is not a surprise to see it. It is certainly a feature of weather at this time of year but 80 mph [129 km/h] is certainly getting in to the realms of winds where you are likely to see disruption due to structural damage, for instance trees coming down.”

The Met Office issued 85 flood watches, 20 flood warnings including a severe flood warning for Wales and the south of England last night as the weather system battered Britain. Flooded roads brought traffic to a standstill and forced delays and cancellations of ferry and train services.

In Cornwall gale force winds downed trees and some areas were submerged under 2 feet (60 cm) of water.

According to a weather report the storm is caused by a large  low-pressure system in the North Atlantic, extending from Newfoundland to western Europe.
