WEATHER WAR - WEATHER NOD!F!CAT!

ON


What has been seen worldwide in the last decades is a tremendous increase in severe,
damaging and massively abnormal weather. This recent increase in abnormal weather
is occurring after environmental research and experimentation has led to the
development of the capabilities needed to create severe and abnormal weather. !t
appears that the current severe weather might be the result of weather assault through
means of weather modification being practiced by nations against other nations. What
has been seen the last number of years in the United States is an increase in severe
weather including drought, floods and hurricanes. Foreign countries have been
increasingly involved in the technical research and experimentation that is associated
with weather modification in the United States. These same countries have increased
their economic investment in, and purchase of land and assets in areas of the United
States that have been devastated by drought, floods and hurricanes. This same pattern
has been seen in other nations.The hurricane seasons for the last number of years have
been particularly devastating for the United States. This follows a period of years in
which the number of hurricanes, their severity and their affect on land and people
increased starting in 133S.This severity increased after the implementation of two
different measures and technological advancements that greatly increased the
information about the topography and coastal areas of the United States and greatly
increased technological capabilities to gather information, monitor, and remote sensor
information about hurricanes.The first measure, which served to provide a great deal of
information on U.S. coasts, waterways near coasts, and structures on and near U.S.
coasts was a program called SLOSH.The program SLOSH, as described in the book,
¨Hurricane Watch - Forecasting the Deadliest Storms on Earth" by Dr. Bob Sheets, the
former director of the National Hurricane Center and ]ack Williams, is a program that
calculates how far inland the surge from a particular storm might go and also measures
and monitors near coastal bodies of water to monitor the water levels.The book notes
that, ¨!n a cooperative effort with the Federal Emergency Nanagement Agency, the
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, local and state governments, and other components of
the Weather Service, Hurricane Center personnel ran the SLOSH model for the entire
US coastline from Texas to Naine. The basic information came from U.S. Ceological
Survey contour maps. Naps with accurate elevations were essential, but so was
information about man·made features such as railroad embankments that raise the
tracks a few feet above the ground and gated communities near the shoreline. These
residential enclaves are often surrounded by walls, a six·foot brick wall will be an
obstacle to an incoming storm surge, and openings within the wall will be outlets for
the surge.SLOSH (an acronym for ¨Sea, Lake, and Overland Surges from Hurricanes"),
indicated what gated communities, which homes, strip malls, highways, roads, and
farms were likely to be underwater, and which potential shelters should be out of the
reach of a storm surge. As director of the National Hurricane Center, Neil Franks started
using the SLOSH model to determine how the size, strength, direction, and speed of
approach of a hurricane affects the impact of the storm surge on a given basin.A series
of model runs were made for each basin along the coastline. SLOSH would make a
surge forecast for a particular storm path and speed, and then an additional run would
put landfall for the same storm a few miles up the coast, and then another variation,
then another, then another - hundreds of runs for each basin (in some cases more than
1,000) with each requiring from half a billion to one billion calculations. Then all of
these runs were ¨composited", and the highest value from any of the runs for every
location was plotted on a map, which became the Naximum Envelope of Water (NEOW)
for that particular coastline for a specific storm's strength, size, speed, and direction of
motion, pinpointing potentially dangerous areas."SLOSH, which was done in the 1380's
and early 1330's, provided a great deal of very detailed information on the coasts of the
United States, and the near coastal bodies of water. !t also provided a great deal of
information about where the impact of a hurricane and storm would be most
destructive, including the mapping of manmade structures along the coast.!n 1334,
improved satellite and sensor technology capabilities were introduced with the newest
generation of Ceostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (COES), which had
improved capabilities in both satellite and sensor technology. This technology allowed
for more frequent and detailed views of the weather.A description of the increased
capabilities attendant with COES, and what was newly enhanced and available for use
at that point was described in regard to ¨Tropical RANSD!S" (RANN Advanced
Neteorological Demonstration Satellite Demonstration and !nterpretation System)
Tropical RANSD!S employs global coverage of the tropics with geostationary automated
real·time satellite display images. The high resolution satellite ingest is moved to follow
individual hurricanes, typhoons and tropical storms throughout their entire lifetime.
With access to five geostationary satellites, it provides excellent coverage of all tropical
weather systems around the world."What occurred after the introduction of
Ceostationary Operational Environmental Satellites, in 1334, was a tremendous increase
in the number of hurricanes, their severity, and their damage. There was also a
tremendous increase in hurricanes tending to hit land, making landfall numerous times,
and often hitting the same region, and sometimes the same place, over and over again
both in the same year and subsequent years.With the earlier measuring and mapping of
the coast and near coastal bodies of water of the U.S., from Texas to Naine with the
SLOSH program, what occurred was a tremendous increase in hurricanes and their
severity and frequency after 1334, in the areas that had been mapped, measured and
were being sensored with the SLOSH program.Although the reason for the new
technology was said to be to give forecasters more information by which to make better
forecasts, that has not changed appreciably. However, what has changed since the
introduction of this new technology is a large increase in the number of hurricanes, and
a large increase in both the severity of hurricanes and their effects on people and land.
This is true for both Atlantic Ocean hurricanes and Pacific Ocean typhoons.!n looking at
records and storm tracks of hurricanes in the past, what was seen before 133S, were
hurricanes that often didn't affect land or people at all. They all originated from Africa
and the Atlantic Ocean, and often stayed fully out in the ocean for the duration of the
hurricane, not hitting land.All that changed after the introduction of COES which came
into operation in 133S. This is exemplified by the differences between the Atlantic
Ocean hurricanes from 1331 to 1334, before the introduction of COES, and those that
have occurred since.
!n 1331 there were four hurricanes and four tropical storms, none hit near the same
place, or near where they had hit in previous years. !n 1332, there were four
hurricanes, two tropical storms, and one subtropical storm, none near each other. !n
1333, there were four hurricanes and four tropical storms, none in the same place. And
in 1334, there were three hurricanes and four tropical storms, none in the same
place.!n 133S, there was a massive increase in the number of hurricanes, their severity
and the similarity of their routes. !n 133S, there were 12 hurricanes and 3 tropical
storms, a massive jump in number from the years before. Another difference was the
route of these hurricanes. Unlike hurricanes in previous years, where a large number
formed and dissipated as hurricanes without hitting land, from 133S on, these
hurricanes tended to almost all hit land, and cause damage. !n looking at the storm
tracks of hurricanes prior to 133S, the hurricane routes tended to meander and drift,
often over open ocean, nowhere near land before dissipating. !n looking at the storm
tracks of hurricanes after 133S, what were seen were often close to straight lines that
tended to occur predominantly over land, incurring a great deal of damage.Although it
is unusual for a hurricane to naturally make landfall more than once due to the natural
dissipation of the hurricane after making landfall, many of these hurricanes, unlike
earlier hurricanes, made landfall a number of times, and some of them raked along
coastlines, some hundreds of miles inland, as hurricanes on land.What also increased
after 133S in the Atlantic Ocean hurricanes, were hurricanes that affected and were
clustered around the United States. With what could be described as very long ¨tracks",
these hurricanes, that naturally before had formed and dissipated in short periods of
time, usually in the Atlantic Ocean, now, in 133S ran along very straightened and like
one another ¨paths" or 'tracks", affecting large areas of coastline in the United States.
!n 133S, five hurricanes and one tropical storm followed a very similar track, moving up
the entire coast of the U.S. Atlantic coast. Three hurricanes and two tropical storms hit
the Culf Coast of the U.S. !n 133S, eight hurricanes and three tropical storms hit the
U.S. and most of them, including in the Culf of Nexico, moved hundreds and in some
cases thousands of miles inland. This is in contrast to earlier hurricane seasons, where
in many cases, in numerous years, few hurricanes even caused much impact in the
United States at all.!n 1336, there were nine hurricanes and four tropical storms. As in
133S, a number hit the United States. Six hurricanes and tropical storms raked along
the entire coast of the United States Atlantic Coast. Of these 13 hurricanes and tropical
storms, 12 hit land in the U.S., Nexico and the islands in the Caribbean. A number of
these storms hit land numerous times, unlike years prior to 133S, when the majority of
hurricanes didn't affect land at all.!n 1337, there were three hurricanes, four tropical
storms and 1 subtropical storm. Four of these storms also tracked the Atlantic coast of
the United States. Five hit the United States and two of the other storms were close to
the islands.!n 1338, there were ten hurricanes and four tropical storms. The devastating
Hurricane Nitch, killed thousands in Honduras. What was also notable this year as well
as other years after 133S, were the massively long distances in which these hurricanes
and tropical storms held together. Before 133S, most hurricanes were of short distance
and duration before they broke up. What has been seen since 133S are hurricanes
organized as hurricanes for massive distances, and long periods of time. For instance in
1337, some of the hurricanes tracked from the African/European coast of the Atlantic
Ocean, moved all the way across the Atlantic Ocean as hurricanes, ran along the
Atlantic Coast of the United States, and then crossed the Atlantic Ocean all the way
back to Europe, staying organized and together as hurricanes longer than any
hurricanes ever seen before. A large number of these storms also hit the United States,
Nexico and the islands in the Caribbean.!n 1333, there were 8 hurricanes and four
tropical storms. A number of the hurricanes and storms in 1333 hit Nexico and even
Central America, which doesn't naturally get many hurricanes. !n 1338, a number of
hurricanes hit the exact same place in North Carolina's Outer Banks. The worst of these
hurricanes was Hurricane Floyd, which followed earlier hurricanes, Dennis, in 1338, and
hurricanes the year before that had made landfall at the exact same point on the Outer
Banks of North Carolina. This also has been characteristic of the hurricanes and tropical
storms since 133S, a number hitting either in the exact same place or close to it, and
many following the exact same trajectory or close to it, as well. What is also notable is
a ¨clustering of hurricanes and tropical storms" very close in time in the exact same
area, which serves to create a massive amount of damage in one area in a short period
of time, both in the same year and in the subsequent, close in time years. !n 1333, the
storms Lenny and ]ose, both followed the exact same track in the islands. Previous to
133S, what was characteristic of the path of hurricanes were that they were random,
usually not very damaging, and often completely not affecting land. They were storms
that formed and dissipated with no pattern and formed as tropical storms and
hurricanes previously, in places and time very distant from one another. What is striking
about the hurricanes after 133S, is that they tended to be almost uniformly in very
similar paths in both place and time. !n the case of Hurricane Dennis and Hurricane
Floyd, Hurricane Dennis was still affecting the northern part of the U.S. while Hurricane
Dennis had already made landfall and was following in the same path behind it.!n 2000,
there were 8 hurricanes, six tropical storms and one subtropical storm. A number of
these hurricanes again hitting land, including the United States and a number hitting
Nexico, including the Yucatan, as had been the case the year before.!n 2001, there
were nine hurricanes and six tropical storms. Unlike previous years since 133S, there
was only one hurricane along the Atlantic coast of the U.S. That was Tropical Storm
Allison, early in the season, from ]une S through 13th. There were a number of storms
in Nexico and also two that again hit Central America, Tropical Storm Chantal and
Hurricane !ris. Within a few short years, three hurricanes had hit Central America. !n
fact, in terms of unnaturalness, two storms in 2001 were virtually in the same place at
the same time. Hurricane !ris was a hurricane from October 4 through 3th. Tropical
Storm ]erry, a tropical storm from October 6 through October 8th, was virtually in the
same location, within the same time period as Hurricane !ris. Hurricanes and tropical
storms naturally require great distances to form with the requirement of different levels
of clouds rotating in the same direction at the same speed, what was seen with
Hurricane !ris and Tropical Storm ]erry were two storms that were slightly apart from
each other in distance yet formed and held together as a tropical storm and hurricane,
when naturally the forces of the one storm, would not have allowed the second storm
to form.What has also changed and not something naturally seen before 133S have
been hurricanes that have stayed organized as hurricanes for very large periods of time
and eyes that have tended to be very large, like the hurricanes themselves, and well
defined. As well, something is occurring since 133S which are called ¨eye wall
replacements" or ¨eye wall replacement cycles". !n natural hurricanes, the hurricane
may form and unform, but there are not two separate distinct eyewalls, separate from
one another. !n fact this is what is being seen with many of the hurricanes since 133S,
with a new eyewall or center of the hurricane forming in a place separate from where
the hurricane has already formed, yet fairly close to it. What appears to be occurring
are really multiple hurricanes forming and existing at the same time, in very close
proximity to each other, something that doesn't occur naturally, as the forces that
would cause one eyewall and a hurricane to form, would, in close proximity to another,
cause it to dissipate, and in fact, the strong forces of the existing hurricane, would not
allow another eye and hurricane to form in close proximity, due to it's strong winds and
rotational force.This was seen with satellite photos of Hurricane Katrina in 200S, where
over the Culf of Nexico, what was seen were two eyewalls, at the same time, a fair
distance from one another. The second eyewall rotated a distance from the first, and in
competition with it, which would naturally result in the breaking up of the hurricane.
What this really amounts to are what could be called ¨double or multiple hurricanes".
This cannot occur naturally, and has not been seen before this time period. !t has been
seen in numerous hurricanes since 133S, and has resulted in absolutely massive
hurricanes, beyond a size ever before seen naturally which affects large areas of land
all at once. ]ust in 200S, this was true of Hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Wilma.With
Hurricane !ris and Tropical Storm ]erry in 2001, both unnaturally virtually in the same
place at the same time, this resulted in a much larger degree of damage with what
could be called ¨double or even larger hurricanes" with what is notable in some of these
hurricanes, the eye dissolving, as a new one is forming further along the route, while
the effects of the earlier eye and hurricane still exist, creating what could be called fully
unnatural ¨megahurricanes".Satellite photos of Hurricane Katrina, in the Culf of Nexico,
showed an eyewall that had formed south of New Orleans, with the hurricane winds
whirling around the center. Within the outer bands of this hurricane, it showed another
eyewall, further east of New Orleans, south of the coast of Nississippi existing at the
same time. This ¨multiple hurricane mass" affected a massive region in the Culf of
Nexico itself. !t then headed north with what could best be termed ¨multiple hurricanes
forming a megahurricane per effect" hitting the Culf Coast of the United States. This
resulted in massive damage along virtually the entire coast of the U.S. Culf Coast of
Nexico from Alabama to the Louisiana border with Texas, moving a very long distance
inland as a ¨megahurricane" as well.With Katrina, although the official track of the
hurricane showed Hurricane Katrina and the eyewall, hitting just west of New Orleans
at the mouth of the Nississippi River, the actual effect of Hurricane Katrina on the Culf
Coast showed evidence of multiple eyes of multiple hurricanes hitting the Culf Coast at
once. One of the effects of Hurricane Katrina was the eyewall of the hurricane, hitting
the mouth of the Nississippi River with massive force, backflowing the Nississippi River
into Lake Pontchartrain, which flooded New Orleans. Eyewalls of hurricanes also hit at
the mouths of the Pearl River and the Biloxi River hundreds of miles away. The eyewalls
of these hurricanes also hit with such force that they backflowed both the Biloxi River
for miles and the Pearl River for miles. The Pearl River backflowed into Lake Borgne
which massively flooded the region connected all the way to the Nississippi River
backflow into Lake Pontchartrain. !t created a massive degree of flooding, damage and
inundation in an area the size of Creat Britain.What is fully unnatural with the
hurricanes since 133S is both the stability of the hurricanes themselves in duration and
size, and large, well formed eyewalls as well.!n looking at hurricane satellite photos
since 133S what is seen with the tracking of the hurricanes are what appear to be at
the same time ¨dissolving eyewalls and reforming eyewalls further along a ¨route" or
track" where the hurricane moves next. So that the hurricane either doesn't diminish in
strength at all, or diminishes in many cases, over ocean or water then intensifies as it
nears land or in some cases, is actually on land. This is fully unnatural. Hurricanes gain
their energy from the interaction with the ocean and intensify more naturally in the
ocean and not near land, something which has not been seen recently.What has also
changed since 133S, is the, in some cases doubling or tripling of the number of
hurricanes over average numbers before 133S.There was no reason for the number of
hurricanes to massively jump in 133S, and to a number far beyond what had been seen
before. This is indicative of larger numbers of formed hurricanes, and in fact, there is
hurricane research being done that has been done specifically on tropical storm
genesis. There was a research study done in the summer of 2007, done specifically just
on tropical storm genesis in or near the Culf of Nexico. This research was conducted
through the C!NSS center at the University of Wisconsin at Nadison.What is notable
about the hurricanes since 133S is they appear to be actually a number of hurricanes,
forming, then dissipating in what would be more normal hurricane time periods but with
another ¨hurricane forming" nearby, to give the impression of one hurricane, when in
actuality, it appears to be several different hurricanes, with as one is dissipating,
another one with a completely separate eye and hurricane forming not far from the
hurricane that is dissipating.Naturally, hurricanes or tropical storms are found nowhere
near each other at the same time. Hurricanes form over oceans because they need the
vast space of oceans to organize as hurricanes which requires that three atmospheric
layers be moving rotationally together in the exact same direction, at the same speed at
the same time. These events naturally occur randomly, they occur naturally only in
oceans and they occasionally make landfall naturally. !t is extremely rare historically
naturally for hurricanes to hit land more than once, as hitting land and the resistance on
hitting land in and of itself always naturally breaks up hurricanes.!t is often reported in
reporting on these hurricanes since 133S that there is an ¨eyewall replacement cycle".
The inference is that the eyewall strengthens and weakens within the same spot in the
center of the hurricane as that is the center around which the hurricane moves. !n
looking at satellite photos of these hurricanes and tropical storms since 133S, this is not
seen to be the case at all. The what are being called ¨replacement eyewalls" are
forming in a separate area from the preexisting hurricane, yet close to it, yet resulting
in the destruction of neither. These ¨replacement eyewalls and the hurricane winds
around them, might be called ¨new hurricanes", which is seen outright with Hurricane
!ris and Tropical Storm ]erry in 2001 with two hurricanes existing side by side,
something that can't happen naturally.These new ¨megahurricane events" appear to be
what could be called ¨tracked hurricanes" where instead of one hurricane that has for
instance moved from Florida all the way up the Atlantic Coast, what is seen is, as one
hurricane and it's eyewall fades, it is immediately subsumed into and pulled along by a
new eyewall and hence a new hurricane, that has formed just north of it, and serves to
keep the effects of the storm going and on very specific and what appear to be directed
¨tracks". These are not single hurricanes, these are hurricane after hurricane after
hurricane along specific ¨tracks or routes". As soon as one starts dimunition of effect, it
is ¨picked up" by the start of another hurricane forming with a new eyewall further
along the ¨hurricane track". This also accounts for the very precise and exact landfalls
and paths that have been seen again and again with completely different hurricanes
since 133S. These hurricanes give the appearance of being fully directed per movement
and force.!n 2002, there were four hurricanes and eight tropical storms. What is
notable about the storms in this year, is that a number of them didn't form in the
Atlantic, but formed in the islands or quite close to land. Tropical Storm Fay and
Tropical Storm Hanna, formed right next to land. !n the case of Tropical Storm Arthur
and Tropical Storm Bertha, they strengthened into tropical storms on land, not in the
ocean at all. This is another massively abnormal phenomenon which has been seen
with hurricanes since 133S.An example is Hurricane Wilma in 200S, where upon
approaching Florida, instead of diminishing and weakening upon hitting land, which
always happens naturally as the hurricanes lose their ocean source of energy and run
into resistance on land, which naturally breaks up the hurricanes. !n the case of
Hurricane Wilma in 200S, it strengthened from a category 2 hurricane over water, to a
category 3 hurricane in strength, after hitting land. Hurricane Wilma not only
strengthened but widened upon hitting land in Florida. !n fact, fully unnaturally, there
was no weakening of Hurricane Wilma over land at all in Florida, remaining a category
three hurricane per measurements all the way across Florida and on the Atlantic
coast.As well, what was notable with Hurricane Wilma was that the winds and effects of
Hurricane Wilma were the same on both the Atlantic and the Culf Coasts, as Hurricane
Wilma started moving onto the Culf side of the state and moving across the state.Hours
later, the hurricane and it's effects ended at the same time in both places, having done
as much, if not more damage on the Atlantic Coast, at the exact same time as on the
Culf Coast. !t appeared that in fact, these were two different hurricanes both in
opposition to each other naturally on both sides of Florida at the same time. Although
the ocean is needed as a source of water and the existence of hurricanes themselves, in
the case of Wilma, the hurricane strengthened over land. !n the cases of Tropical
Storms Arthur in Bertha, in 2002 they hadn't even strengthened into tropical storms in
the ocean, but over land.!n 2003, there were seven hurricanes and nine tropical storms.
What is notable about the hurricane season in 2003, was the large number of storms in
the Culf of Nexico. Six of the storms were in the Culf of Nexico. The Culf of Nexico is
not a place that naturally experiences many hurricanes. With hurricanes naturally
forming in the Atlantic Ocean, the Caribbean islands form a natural barrier to there
being much hurricane activity in the Culf of Nexico. What was also seen in this and the
subsequent two years, were not only large numbers of hurricanes hitting the Culf of
Nexico itself and the coasts and land on the Culf of Nexico, but hurricanes forming in
the Culf of Nexico itself, instead of the Atlantic Ocean. This is not something that
naturally happens. Hurricanes have always naturally formed in the oceans. !n fact,
hurricanes do not naturally form nor strengthen, in smaller bodies of water, such as the
Culf of Nexico.Civen the smaller body of water in the Culf of Nexico, the category
strength of the hurricane and the winds and waves are naturally less than would be
seen in the ocean, due to the smaller size of the body of water. Fully unnaturally, with
Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, they massively strengthened in the Culf of Nexico, with
tremendous force winds and waves.What occurred with the massively high wind and
wave speeds with Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, was specifically a tremendous amount of
damage to the oil rigs and oil infrastructure sited in the Culf of Nexico itself. These
force winds and waves have never been seen in the Culf of Nexico before, and they
don't naturally occur there. This damage occurred in the same year that massive
destruction was done to a large part of the Culf Coast as well. And destruction that also
served to damage the oil and gas industry and infrastructure, for instance, on land oil
and gas facilities and refining and production facilities. And like the other changes in
hurricanes seen since 133S, they served to do a tremendous amount of damage.!n
2004, there were nine hurricanes, five tropical storms and one subtropical storm. The
2004 hurricane season was massively destructive in both the United States and in the
Caribbean. A large number of the hurricanes and storms tracked up the full coast of the
United States. A number of these storms moved along the same route, following one
another. For example, Tropical Storm Bonnie ran along the Atlantic coast of the United
States, with Hurricane Charley following the same track close behind. A number were
clustered in the state of Florida and did massive damage. Hurricane Charley hit the
center of Florida before moving north, and Hurricane Frances impacted almost the
exact same place in Florida. !t wreaked enormous destruction on the northwest Culf of
Nexico coast in Florida, before crossing and moving up the Atlantic coast of the United
States. Hurricane !van hit an enormous number of areas. !n the U.S., it hit the Culf of
Nexico coast, moved halfway up the interior of the United States, moved to the Atlantic
Coast, and instead of moving north, headed straight south along the Atlantic Coast,
slicing through the state of Florida, before exiting on the Culf coast of Florida, and then
heading back up to make another landfall on the Culf of Nexico coast.. Hurricane !van,
and it's route is one of the most representative storms seen since 133S, where it almost
appears as if these are a number of separate hurricanes ¨stitched together" and called a
single hurricane" with the hurricane track making inexplicable stops and turns in
direction, the result of which serves to do a massive amount of damage to a large
number of places. With these hurricanes, what has been seen is no dimunition with
landfall, even with these storms hitting land over and over, and in a number of cases,
moving along inland as tropical storms and hurricanes with no weakening of effect.
Hurricane ]eanne in Florida followed the exact same track in Florida as Hurricane
Frances had just before it, hitting the exact same area over again, creating much more
damage than occurred with one and allowing no chance for recovery from Hurricane
Frances.!n 200S, there were 14 hurricanes, 12 tropical storms and one subtropical
storm. There have never been so many tropical storms and hurricanes in one year and
for the first time, the named storms moved into the Creek alphabet. !n 200S, the
hurricane season, which normally diminishes after October, continued all the way into
2006 with Tropical Storm Zeta.As well as hurricanes moving along what appear to be
directed tracks since 133S, what is occurring are hurricanes remaining stationary for
unnaturally long periods of time. !n the late 1380's, Hurricane Hugo set a record for the
length of time that a hurricane had affected one area, with a large increase over the
previous record, remaining stationary for 12 straight hours.Hurricanes, with their high
wind speeds, are naturally fast moving. They have been described as ¨blowing
through". !n fact, what has been seen since 133S is a massive unnaturalness in this as
well. With hurricanes or severe storms, the wind itself, due to the velocity and speed of
the wind, blows the storm or hurricane and the effects of the hurricane and storm,
through very quickly.Although naturally, non storm related weather which does not
include high winds, can rain for some days on end, with storms and hurricanes, the
characteristic high winds associated with storms, tropical storms and hurricanes, in and
of themselves, mean that these storms are of short duration.What has been seen since
133S, are hurricanes, tropical storms and storms that have high winds that would
naturally blow through very quickly acting at the same time, like what can only be
called ¨stationary fronts", which in and of themselves per action, are the exact opposite
of hurricanes and tropical or other storms.!n 200S, Hurricane Wilma and it's actions
over the Yucatan Peninsula in Nexico, was not at all characteristic of a natural
hurricane. !t was characteristic of a stationary front. Hurricane Wilma formed in the
Caribbean. !t formed very quickly with the lowest barometric pressure ever recorded,
the lower the barometric pressure serving to intensify the storm. !t moved very quickly
directly to the Yucatan Peninsula. Hurricane Wilma sat stationary off the Yucatan
Peninsula of Nexico for two and one half days, or 60 hours, not moving, breaking the
previous record of 12 hours with Hurricane Hugo. During that period of time, it dumped
massive amounts of rain over the Yucatan Peninsula, wreaking a great amount of
damage, including in Cancun and Cozumel at the same time. !t then, with nothing to
account for the increase in speed, picked up speed, sped west into the Culf of Nexico,
did a complete opposite turn to the east toward Florida, with no dimunition in speed,
and sped to the Culf Coast of Florida, where it intensified after making landfall.
Naturally, hurricanes are fast moving, the wind speeds characteristic of hurricanes,
moving the storms along and historically, naturally there is little flooding connected with
hurricanes, as they move too fast for much rain to fall.What has been seen in hurricane
seasons since 133S has been clustering of damage and hurricanes in the same region
or place in the same year and in the few years before and after, serving to massively
damage whole regions in a short period of time. This is fully unlike what has been seen
historically with hurricanes, with very few doing much damage, many not affecting land
and no pattern at all historically with hurricanes of their hitting areas even close to each
other in the same year or in successive years.. What has been seen since 133S, both
with storms generally and hurricanes as well, are storms that hit the same areas and
regions, over and over again, either right after each other or close in time or in the next
couple of years, so that these regions are constantly what could be considered ¨under
assault" and are not able to recover. This too is fully unnatural. Although there are
some areas in which hurricanes occur naturally, no places have been subject to massive
damage from hurricanes in a short period of time. !t has been rare for even those areas
that experience the most effects from hurricanes, the islands in the Atlantic and Pacific
to experience severe hurricanes. !n places like the Culf of Nexico, and the land
surrounding it and the Atlantic coast of the United States, the occurrence is rarer still.
Before 133S, it had been decades since a hurricane had done any substantial damage
at all in the Culf of Nexico.These clustered and ¨same track" hurricanes and storms
hitting the same area, serve to destroy and duress whole regions in very short periods
of time. This was true of North Carolina in the later 1330's, this was true of Florida in
2004 and 200S and this was true of the entire Culf of Nexico region in 200S. !n the
hurricane season of 200S, 14 tropical hurricanes and tropical storms hit the Culf of
Nexico and the surrounding coasts and land masses.Since 2003 what appears to be
occurring is specifically and appears per effect and timing, planned, destruction of the
coasts, cities and communities all along the Culf of Nexico and the waterways leading
into the Culf of Nexico.!n 2004, Hurricanes ]eanne and Frances, occurring one right
after the other, followed the same route on the Northwest Culf Coast of Florida,
decimating the region.!n 200S, both Florida generally, as well as the Culf Coast of
Florida, again experienced devastating hurricanes. The Northwest Culf Coast of Florida
was again hit as well. Hurricane Katrina decimated hundreds of miles along the Culf
Coast of the United States from Alabama to Louisiana and hundreds of miles inland.
The destruction on the coast and inland from Hurricane Rita, which occurred a month
later, ¨dovetailed" with the destruction on the coast from Hurricane Katrina. Hurricane
Rita's path hit exactly where Hurricane Katrina had ended, decimating the Louisiana
coast which had not been decimated in Hurricane Katrina and continuing further west
into Texas, as well as hundreds of miles inland as well.Thus, these hurricanes, occurring
in quick succession in 2004 and 200S, and with destruction beyond anything ever seen
before in scope and damage, served to decimate Florida and the U.S. Culf Coast of
Nexico, from North Florida to Texas.!n 200S, and the few years preceding it, there has
also been massive amounts of destruction due to hurricanes in other areas in the Culf
of Nexico and the areas which adjoin the Culf of Nexico.This has included not only
increases in the destruction caused by hurricanes in the islands in or near the Culf of
Nexico, but in the country of Nexico itself. Nexico has seen a tremendous increase in
hurricanes the last number of years. With just Hurricane Wilma in 200S, it served to
destroy large areas of coast on the Yucatan Peninsula and created a great deal of
destruction in Cozumel and Cancun. What is also notable about the region in the Culf of
Nexico and the areas adjoining it, is that in these recent years, there have been a
number of hurricanes which affected the countries of Central America as well. The
entire region surrounding the Culf of Nexico, has been hit again and again in the last
few years by hurricanes. Cuba as well, has been affected by repeat hurricanes.These
regions too, abut the Culf of Nexico and the waterways moving into the Culf of Nexico.
And these coasts as well are being massively affected.Hurricane Wilma in 200S, also hit
the island of Cuba. !t created a great deal of destruction in the city of Havana. ]ust as
there was a breach in the protective retaining levees in New Orleans, causing massive
damage to the city of New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina, in Cuba, during Hurricane
Wilma, there was a breach in a protective barrier that had had no problems for a
century, serving to create a condition for massive inundation of the city of Havana
itself. Thus, after the end of the hurricane season of 200S, there was massive
destruction in the Culf of Nexico cities of New Orleans, Cancun, Cozumel and Havana.
As well, what was seen in large areas of the Culf Coasts of these countries, was
massive destruction along the coasts, for hundreds and hundreds of miles, serving to in
effect, destroy and clear the coasts of the Culf of Nexico in the United States in the
north, in Nexico, in Central America, in Cuba and in neighboring islands.
What occurred after the mapping and measuring of the coasts with SLOSH and the
implementation of the upgraded technology of COES in 1334, was an increase in the
number, severity and damage connected specifically with those things for which
information was being gathered, and monitored, such as hurricanes.For example, after
the mapping and measuring of the coastline, and modeling done to ascertain where the
more likely areas for flooding and destruction were, subsequent hurricanes made exact
hurricane landfall specifically at points in areas which did serve to create a great deal of
damage. North Carolina's Outer Banks, suffered a tremendous amount of destruction,
when hurricane after hurricane made landfall in the exact same spot culminating in
Hurricane Floyd which made landfall at the exact spot Hurricane Dennis had while
Hurricane Dennis was still moving north on the Atlantic Coast when Hurricane Floyd
made landfall.The mapping, measuring and remote sensoring done for the SLOSH
program required a great deal of work on the part of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
and other national and local governmental bodies, and a great deal of expense.The
reason given for SLOSH, was to map the regions on the coast that were specifically
subject to hurricanes, from Texas to Naine. What happened was an increase in severe
hurricanes after SLOSH had been run, including hurricanes like Hurricane Andrew.
Hurricane Andrew, although not a hurricane that created a great deal of flooding, was
another very large hurricane event, with very high winds that did a tremendous amount
of damage to existing buildings.]ust as was the case with storm surge and flooding and
an increase in hurricanes and destruction that occurred after SLOSH had been run and
COES instituted, there had been earlier significant upgrades in technology and
monitoring capabilities related to other weather phenomenon that had also seen
increases in incidence and severity after the research and upgrades in technological
measuring, modeling and monitoring. These included wind speeds with storms. These
wind speeds have more than doubled from what occurred naturally before the research
and advances in technological and monitoring upgrades, with wind speeds now seen
with tornadoes and other storms having doubled over what was measured with wind
speeds before then. This followed a great deal of research, modeling, information
gathering, and monitoring of wind speeds and cyclonic activities, at, for example, the
National Severe Storms Laboratory, which researched tornadoes, and their genesis and
intensification. There were numerous research projects, including an atmospheric wave
generation research project with the National Severe Storms Laboratory and connected
research into cyclones at several universities, such as the University of Chicago, from
the 1360's on. Nany of these research projects and experimental laboratories, for
example the National Severe Storms Laboratory and the National Hurricane Research
Laboratory had a great deal of input from other countries, both in setting up the
programs, and the areas of study that would be researched.
Recently, in 200S, there has been, a number of significant enhancements of capabilities
to gather information, model information, remote·sensor and monitor atmospheric and
ground level conditions that has also coincided with a massive increase in the severe
weather phenomenon that is being measured and monitored. !n recent years, the entire
continental United States, the coast of the United States and coastal regions, and it's
inland bodies of water, such as rivers and lakes, have been mapped and measured, and
remote - sensoring capabilities installed.Not only have the coasts, the land masses and
the inland bodies of water, including rivers and lakes, been minutely mapped, studied
and researched for inundation capabilities, this has also been done for many of the
cities of the United States, including very detailed mapping, measuring and remote
sensoring monitoring of the bodies of water and coasts near cities, nearby rivers and
lakes adjacent to cities, and a massive degree of measuring, mapping, photographing
and remote sensoring for inundation capabilities in cities themselves. This has included
a tremendous amount of research of U.S. city sewer systems, drinking water systems,
retention water facilities, drainage systems, water runoff systems, levees, dams, canals
and bridge and port structures, and the cities modeled in three dimensional form,
including existing buildings, and structures, including subterranean ones, such as sewer
and subway systems and pumping systems.What happened with Hurricane Katrina, was
a massive inundation event that was caused by three eyewalls hitting three different
mouths of rivers and backflowing and inundating and overflowing the rivers, lakes and
canals as well. What also occurred was water that didn't drain from the city of New
Orleans, the failure of a number of pumps and pumping stations, and the inexplicable
destruction of canals that served to hold water from getting into the city of New
Orleans, such as the 17th Street Canal adjoining Lake Pontchartrain, quite far inland,
while canals and levees that served to retain water in the city, that were much closer to
the coast, weren't damaged at all. What also failed was the New Orleans sewer system,
which failed to drain water out of the city. None of these systems had ever failed before
in the history in New Orleans for centuries before.Before Hurricane Katrina struck, the
coasts, rivers, lakes, canals, levees and Nississippi River diversions had been studied
extensively, and mapped, measured and were being monitored with remote
sensors.The city of New Orleans, it's structures, the canals, levees, bridges, pumping
systems, sewer systems and it's inundation capabilities, was also massively and
extensively studied, researched and mapped, and remote sensors installed in the few
years before Hurricane Katrina struck.
The reason given for the SLOSH program and the mapping, measuring, modeling and
remote sensoring was to be able to more accurately monitor hurricanes along the
coast.!nstead what occurred was an increase in intensity and severity of these
hurricanes along the coast of the United States.There has been no reason given for the
massive amount of research, information gathering, mapping, measuring, modeling,
and remote sensoring installation and monitoring of the entire United States and
offshore coastal regions that has occurred in the last number of years. These areas are
not subject to hurricanes, nor is there generally any history of massively abnormal
weather occurring in the continental United States, with any frequency, to make this
massive expenditure in time, tax dollars and effort worthwhile.What was measured and
mapped with SLOSH, was not only geologic and natural features, but also all existing
manmade structures. Walls, buildings, and other man made structures. The
measurements and mapping that was being done with SLOSH, included all manmade
structures existing at that time for a determination of, for instance, where storm surge
from the ocean would go. Naturally, historically, storm surge damage from hurricanes
overall has occurred rarely.As well, given that historically these events that have done
any significant damage are so rare, decades and even centuries apart and in different
parts of the coastline, it would be likely that a great deal would have changed along the
coastline, particularly with manmade structures, before a storm surge or other severe
weather effect occurred, thus making the measuring, mapping and sensoring based on
what existed at any point in time, likely to soon be invalid and erroneous. This is
certainly true for all the coasts that have been measured this way, and certainly the
cities as well that have been recently measured and mapped including their buildings,
walls, streets, diversions and other factors that can change in cities very rapidlyAs well,
historically, there is no history of massive weather related catastrophes affecting cities
at all before this increase in technological capabilities. Cities by virtue of their density,
are naturally destructive of the cyclonic features of both tornadoes and hurricanes, both
tending to break apart with resistance, and hurricanes dissipating over land. Historically,
neither hurricanes nor tornadoes have done much damage at all to U.S. cities.
Once the measurement, mapping, information gathering, modeling and remote
sensoring had being done for the whole continental United States, including coasts,
offshore coasts, land, inland bodies of water, and cities, two programs that served to
pull together all the new and existing technologies in order to cover the entire United
States and offshore areas with advanced radar, satellite, remote sensoring and other
advanced technological capabilities, wer implemented.One of these new enhanced
technologies was an enhanced utilization of the Ceostationary Environmental Satellite
(COES !/N)Some of the new technology and use of the new technology is outlined in
the COES !/N Product Assurance Plan (C!NPAP) for fiscal year 200S on the ¨Enhanced
Utilization of COES !/N" Progress Report: October·December·2004 from the
NOAA/National Severe Storms Laboratory (NSSL) from Robert N. Rabin issued ]anuary
200S.This enhanced utilization was being used with Doppler radar and other data
sources, and focused on a number of areas including enhanced storm tracker
capabilities, which includes greater resolution capabilities for examination of clouds and
cloud layers.One of the primary utilizations of the enhanced COES !/N was to record,
track and analyze those things connected to heat, precipitation and moisture, both with
clouds, and with ground based measuring of the continental United States..There is also
in this new more comprehensive use of both preexisting and new capabilities, an
increased, and in conjunction, monitoring of ground level heat, moisture and water
levels. This includes, as noted in the document, ¨collaboration with the Cooperative
!nstitute for Research in the Atmosphere (C!RA) on the use of skin temperature to
detect surface wetness." !n the document it notes, ¨Comparisons of COES·based
heating rates have been correlated with modeled soil moisture from the NOAA Climate
Prediction and with a vegetation health index for several monthly periods. Correlations
are relatively high for the central and eastern U.S. and suggest the usefulness of the
technique to monitor surface wetness in clear conditions." Also for future research in
analysis capabilities it included, ¨Discussed strategies for collaboration with
NESD!S/RANN on future research including surface air temperature."A number of the
new capabilities being discussed in this document are related specifically to precipitation
and monitoring of precipitation rates. Some of these included: ¨!ncorporation of satellite
rainfall (Hydroestimator and CNSRA) into National grid to be produced at NSSL,
precipitation evaluation, particularly in regions of limited radar coverage in the western
U.S., Enhanced use of satellite data in National Nosaic OPE (NNO). !ncludes testing of
Hydroestimator and CNSRA in complex terrain of the western U.S. (orographic
conditions). - Processing has continued to input the Hydroestimator and Nulti·Spectral
COES Rainfall Algorithm (CNSRA) into a national scale precipitation evaluation system
at the NSSL. !mplementation of the evaluation system is expected in the second
quarter. !n addition, composite images covering the continental United States and
surrounding waters continued to be produced in real·time from COES·12 and COES·10
data for use in the Nulti·sensor rainfall algorithm (and future comparison with the
Hydro·estimator) on the new national grid. This imagery is converted to NetCDF format
and archived for viewing in WDSS·!! for a broad range of applications."This newly
enhanced utilization of COES includes analysis of moisture in the air, noting in the
document what the new capabilities would be used for, ¨Continued research on use of
mesoscale wind analyzes from COES water·vapor winds. Naintain real·time and archive
data (web based)". This capability would supply continual both real time and checking
per the past, analysis of convective clouds for heat and water vapor winds for the
analysis of these patterns over time and access by web for remote monitoring.!n terms
of these capabilities what is seen is vastly increased capabilities and coordination of
sensoring and information gathering related to a number of weather phenomenon, and
as well a great deal specifically related to precipitation and rainfall both in the United
States and in the surrounding waters. What is notable about this as well, is the time
when this was scheduled for implementation for use - the second quarter of 200S.The
enhanced utilization of COES was implemented in the second quarter of 200S. This
enhanced utilization of COES !/N was also part of an upgrading of a larger utilization of
both pre·existing and new technological capabilities in what is called ¨Next Ceneration
Ouantitative Precipitation Estimate (OPE - 2), or (O2).A description of the increased
capabilities of O2 is ¨the scientific and community wide convergence towards high
resolution, accurate quantitative precipitation estimate (OPE) and very short term
quantitative precipitation forecast (vSTOPF). O2 continues the National Severe Storms
Laboratory's departure from radar·centric precipitation estimation and moves towards a
multi·sensor approach focused on high resolution integration of radar, satellite, model
and surface observations to produce very high resolution precipitation estimates.The
purpose of the enhanced capabilities of the O2 project, a joint initiative between the
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association, the NOAA/National Severe Storms
Laboratory, the NOAA/National Weather Service, the NOAA/Office of Hydrological
Development (OHD), the NOAA Office of Climate, Water and Weather Services
(OCWSS) and the university research community, is noted as being to: ¨improve river
forecasts, flood and flash flood watches and warnings as well as to enhance hydrologic
and hydrometeorological services for numerous users and customers."The initial version
running date for the implementation of O2 in the continental United States was ]anuary
of 200S. The phase out of the older system was in December of 2006 and the
implementation of both O2 and short term OPF for the continental United States was
implemented in February, 2007.On ]une 28 and 23 of 200S, a workshop: ¨O2 - ¨next
generation OPE", was held in Norman, Oklahoma. The workshop sponsored by the
NOAA/National Severe Storms Laboratory (NSSL) and the NOAA/NWS and the
NOAA/Hydrologic Development (OHD) noted that they had been collaborating towards
improving OPE in the National Weather Service operations. !t stated, ¨the collaboration
is using the National Nosaic and Nultisensor OPE (NNO) and other projects to support
research and science·to·operations of hydrometeorological applications for monitoring
and prediction of water·related hazards and freshwater resources in the U.S."The
expected outcomes given for the workshop were ¨Ceneration of the science and
science·to·operations plan for NNO as the community platform for OPE and very short·
range OPF, and development of collaborative OPE and very short·range OPF research
and development, and research·to·operations partnerships across NOAA and with
external partners."A number of the external partners listed as both those sponsoring
the workshop and those who would be attending included university connected
researchers, private companies, and all of those who might be interested in O2
research. What is also notable was the reason for the new upgrades. The purpose and
focus was not on forecasting. !t was instead, as noted in regard to this collaboration
and these upgrades were, ¨for the use of OPE (NNO) and other projects to support
research and science to operations of hydrometeorological applications for monitoring
and prediction of water related hazards and freshwater resources in the U.S." The
primary purpose and focus of these upgraded enhancements is for research with the
rationale given that this might be applied operationally in the future for forecasting.
What has been seen with these enhancements are these upgraded capabilities not
being done for use by the U.S. government and forecasting as a primary purpose and
the only legitimate one, but primarily and in many cases, the research being done and
the information and sensoring being used solely for research purposes.
As well, a great deal of this research and the monitoring and continuing remote·
sensoring of U.S. coasts, inland bodies of water and cities is not being done by the U.S.
government for the U.S. government and the people of the United States.Although a
great deal of this research has been funded by the U.S. government, and U.S.
governmental atmospheric, oceanic and geographic agencies, such as the NOAA, the
National Hurricane Center, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and the U.S. Ceological
Survey, and nationally and state funded U.S. universities, the information being
mapped, measured, researched and monitored, is not going to the U.S. government
and for forecasting purposes primarily, but for research purposes, by U.S. and
internationally connected universities and research projects, and in some cases, by
private companies, a number of them foreign private companies.A large number of the
ressearchers working both in US governmental and U.S. government funded and
connected atmospheric agencies and in U.S. universities to which a large degree of this
research has been outsourced are foreigners as well, though much of the funding is still
U.S. governmental. For example, in the above document, collaboration with the
Cooperative !nstitute for Research in the Atmosphere (C!RA) was noted. This institute is
located at Colorado State University. Although part of Colorado State University and
funded by the university, the national government, atmospheric related agencies of the
U.S. government and the state government of Colorado as well, this research institute is
staffed with researchers who do no teaching and do not call themselves faculty but staff
members. A large percentage of them are non·Americans, including through it's
formation and years following, a number of researchers and administrators. As well, the
current head of C!RA, Thomas vonder Haar, notes in terms of those applying to work
on the staff at C!RA, ¨Senior scientists and qualified scientists from foreign countries are
encouraged to apply."One of the recent projects that C!RA is involved with is CloudSat,
a NASA Earth System Science Pathfinder Nission that was launched in April, 2006. This
project is the world's most sensitive radar system, designed to measure the property of
clouds. The $217 million CloudSat satellite project is predominantly funded by
NASA.Although a NASA project, using NASA spacecraft, one of the mission designs was
that the CloudSat spacecraft flies in orbital formation as part of a constellation of
satellites, including NASA's Aqua and Aura satellites, the French Space Agency (CNES)
Parasol satellite and the NASA·CNES CAL!PSO satellite. This is the first time that five
research satellites have flown together in formation.Although a NASA mission and co·
done with a U.S. university, it is noted by C!RA about CloudSat that ¨the collaborative
mission draws on the expertise of industries, universities and laboratories in the United
States, Canada, ]apan and Europe. The CloudSat satellite will use the first·ever space·
borne millimeter wavelength cloud profiling radar, developed for NASA by ]PL in
partnership with the Canadian Space Agency. This highly advanced radar has the ability
to measure both the altitude and the physical properties of clouds. Existing space·based
systems can observe only the uppermost layer of clouds and cannot reliably detect the
presence of multiple cloud layers or determine the cloud water and ice content."As well
it is noted that, ¨The U.S. Air Force will operate the CloudSat spacecraft in orbit and will
deliver the raw data to the Cooperative !nstitute for Research in the Atmosphere, or
C!RA, located at Colorado State. C!RA will process all CloudSat data and deliver data
products to the scientific community." There is no reason given as to why the CloudSat
data should be analyzed at C!RA and dispersed by C!RA and not by the U.S.
government.!t is also noted that with CloudSat ¨the U.S. Department of Energy will
provide independent verification of the radar performance through its Atmospheric
Radiation Neasurement Program. Scientists from the United States, Cermany, France,
Canada and ]apan are contributing their facilities and expertise to develop science data
products, analyze data and complement the DOE on·orbit verification efforts." There
isn't any reason given as to why the scientists from these foreign countries would need
to develop science data products, analyze data and complement the DOE on·orbit
verification efforts.Some of the things being done with CloudSat as noted by C!RA are,
¨investigating how clouds determine the earth's energy balance, measuring cloud
properties from the top of the atmosphere to the surface of the earth, filling a gap in
existing and planned space observation systems, penetrating into and through thick
cloud systems, and linking climate conditions to hydrological processes that affect
occurrences of drought, incidences of severe weather and availability of water."NASA is
involved in another recently initiated research project that also involves the
measurement of precipitation rates. This is the Tropical Rainfall Neasurement Nission
(TRNN) which measures precipitation rates in the Americas. This research project,
though being done by NASA, is being co·researched and utilized by the United States
and ]apan.The governments of Britain and ]apan and their nationally connected
atmospheric research programs are currently jointly working on a research project
researching hurricanes, floods and drought in the Americas. This research project is not
being done with any of the countries of the Americas, including the United States. Nor
is the research and the information gathered, being shared with the countries of the
Americas, including the United States.There has been a tremendous increase in the
increase, severity and destruction caused by hurricanes, floods and drought in both the
United States and the rest of the Americas, which matches in time both the increase in
enhanced utilization and capabilities of a number of technological upgrades. This also
matches the involvement in time of these countries specifically in doing research in
these specific outcomes that have increased since these newly enhanced capabilities.
The mapping, measuring, modeling and remote sensoring of the United States, it's
coasts, and manmade structures on the coast, the offshore areas, land and inland
bodies of water, including rivers and lakes, had all been completed by 200S.The
mapping, measuring modeling and remote sensoring of a number of U.S. cities, and
their manmade structures, as well as nearby coasts, lakes and rivers, had been
completed by 200S, including New Orleans. A number of others have been completed
since.The upgrades with enhanced Ceostationary Earth Satellites that served to monitor
and in much more detail, the entire U.S., coastal and offshore regions, and the
enhanced O2 capabilities were both implemented by mid 200S.Since these
enhancements and their integration of radar, satellite, modeling, remote sensoring,
surface observations and analysis were implemented, what has occurred after their
implementation is a massive increase in the incidence of severe weather across the
United States, which had been earlier mapped, measured, modeled and is being remote
sensored. This has included severe weather generally and as well, specifically in terms
of severe weather related to precipitation patterns across the U.S.
What occurred soon after this implementation in 200S, was Hurricane Katrina, a storm
absolutely massive in scope and destruction beyond anything ever seen before.
Hurricane Katrina served to flood and inundate a region from Alabama to Texas, and
the damage was to a land mass as large as Creat Britain. Hurricane Rita, a month later,
was just as large and also inundated and flooded a massive region. What happened
with Hurricane Katrina was a massive inundation of the whole region. This was after a
number of earlier hurricanes in 200S, Arlene, Cindy and Dennis had already passed
through the region, serving to saturate the whole area. When Hurricane Katrina hit,
with one of the eyewalls hitting at the mouth of the Nississippi River, the Nississippi
River was 11 feet above normal.What has occurred since the implementation of these
enhanced capabilities in 200S, has been a tremendous increase in the flooding of
massive regions of the United States. Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, served to massively
inundate a vast region along the coast and hundreds of miles inland along the Culf
Coast of the United States. At them same time and in November of 200S, in the
Northeast United States, heavy storms and record rainfall resulted in flooding and
inundation in a large area of the Northeast United States. !n the winter of 200S to
2006, heavy rainfall caused a tremendous degree of flooding in the Southwest Coastal
region of the United States, in California. During this same period, what also occurred
was record rainfall for consecutive days with rain for the Northwest coastal region of
the United States and subsequent flooding.!n the spring and summer of 2006, in the
northeast United States and in the central Atlantic coastal regions of the United States
there were record amounts of rainfall. Records were set in many areas in both the
amounts of rain that fell in a one day period, and for the number of days rain fell in a
row.This resulted, in the spring and summer of 2006, in the Northeast and Central
eastern coastal and inland areas of the United States, was a vast inundated megaflood
from Nassachusetts all the way down to the Carolinas and for hundreds of miles
inland.!n the fall of 2006, with record short term rainfall records and record amounts of
rainfall over time in the Northwest Coastal region of the U.S. what resulted was massive
flooding throughout the region.Since 200S, and the implementation of the enhanced
technologies and capabilities with enhanced COES and O2, what has occurred with the
routes of storms in the continental United States has been a change to very highly
organized and unnatural change in the weather patterns and routes in the United States
to what appear to be ¨tracks or routes" with many staying unnaturally stationary for
very long periods of time. A number of these enhanced capabilities implemented in
200S, are centered on precipitation specifically. What has been seen along with this
very highly tracked pattern of storms across the United States since 200S, are massively
abnormal precipitation patterns. !n looking at satellite photos of normal weather
patterns of decades ago, what was seen was variable weather, with variable
precipitation patterns. This weather constantly shifted and varied from day to day. !n
looking at the weather patterns over time, conditions changed over the country from
day to day and were always variable to one another. What has been seen since 200S in
the continental United States is very little variability in the precipitation patterns in the
United States. !nstead the weather patterns in the continental United States, have
appeared to be very abnormal and the movement of weather and storms across the
United States have shifted to what appear to be highly methodical and patterned paths,
with some very fixed, long term stationary fronts. This has resulted in very high
precipitation rates in some areas for months at a time, with no or little precipitation at
all in nearby regions, again for months at a time. This has served to create massive
destruction in many areas of the U.S., with either flooding or drought conditions
existing in large areas of the country since 200S.What is notable about some of the
enhanced utilization capabilities are what they measure. What has been seen since
200S, are increased capabilities for measuring and monitoring those specific factors that
are related to precipitation, and movement of air masses connected to precipitation. For
instance, one of the enhanced capabilities implemented in 200S, is the monitoring and
information gathering of orographic forced processes, which is the process of
precipitation being caused by the updraft of precipitation potential clouds moving up
quickly from warmer temperatures closer to the ground, to cooler temperatures up in
the atmosphere leading to rainfall.Also in the document in ]anuary 200S, on the
¨Enhanced Utilization of COES !/N", it noted, ¨Progress was made in developing a
convective overshoot product. !mages are produced which show the difference between
cloud top temperature and parcel equilibrium temperature as estimated from the SPC
objective analysis. The idea is to infer the amount of overshoot of the updraft (and
perhaps storm intensity) from the temperature difference rather than from absolute
cloud top temperatures (which vary with the time of year and location). The product
was tested on a few cool season convective events. !t was determined that non·
convective clouds should be masked from the images to prevent false indications of
overshoot. Radar and lightning data will be used for this purpose. Real·time and
archived products are available."What is notable about this ¨convective overshoot
product", is that it had only been tested on a few cool season convective events, as an
experiment, yet based on that, it was going to be implemented to be used as a means
of detecting and analyzing weather data, with no information given as to how this
product was developed or why there would be an assumption that this differential
would be useful in detecting storms, and forecasting precipitation. This product, which
is being developed as part of the enhanced utilization of COES for estimation of
precipitation, calls for a masking of non convective clouds from the images with radar,
and lightning data being used to determine which are convective clouds. !n terms of
forecasting, which is the only valid purpose of this enhancement, it would be important
to have information on all the clouds. Specific clouds may have the potential to cause
rain and storms, but this also occurs in relation to a number of other factors, including
other clouds.Since the 1340's there has been the technology and ability to seed clouds
to cause precipitation. Since then, there have been thousands of research studies,
modeling and simulation experiments and physical experimentation and engineering
projects, connected to weather modification. There has also been research and
information gathering, technological updates, remote·sensoring, modeling, simulation,
experiments and engineering that is applicable to weather modification, being
conducted in governments, universities and organizations around the world, in which
the knowledge and capabilities have far exceeded what was known and able to be done
with just cloud seeding in the 1340's. !t is significant that these changed technological
advances and capabilities have not improved the forecasts appreciably, but that the
weather that is able to be specifically monitored, analyzed, measured and analyzed, has
changed after these particular enhanced capabilities have been implemented.
!n observing the movement of fronts including storm fronts across the United States in
the last few years, what is notable is the abnormality of the movement. One of the
prevailing normal weather patterns over the continental United States is a pattern of
weather moving from the southwest to the northeast. This has rarely been seen since
200S.!n precipitation patterns in the continental United States since 200S, there has
been a predominant pattern of storm fronts and precipitation remaining stationary at
and near U.S. coasts, expelling large amounts of rain, while the interior of the country
has received much lower amounts of precipitation and rainfall than normal. This has
resulted in severe massive floods along the Atlantic Coast of the United States, the
Pacific Coast of the United States and the Culf Coast of the United States since 200S,
with record high temperatures, lack of precipitation and severe drought in much of the
interior United States.The predominant weather pattern seen since 200S, is
precipitation being picked up from the oceans and gulf, moving inland along and near
the coasts, and not moving further inland. !n satellite and weather patterns, what is
seen are lateral either stationary or laterally moving fronts predominantly just along the
coasts, with these fronts usually not moving into the interior of the country.
What has also occurred in very large regions, and for very abnormally long duration, is
a lack of precipitation, with abnormally low levels of precipitation being seen in much of
the country. Due to the duration of this lack of precipitation, which is in some regions,
constant and of a number of years duration, this continuous lack of precipitation has
accentuated the destruction far beyond what ordinarily would exist with normal
drought. With years with no or little rain, these areas have suffered conditions of
drought never seen before. There have been, in the history of this country, conditions
of drought that have lasted for a year of variable, but generally abnormally dry
weather. The conditions are often called drought when the lack of rainfall presents itself
during periods of time when crops are being planted, grown or reaped, in terms of
effect. What has occurred in recent years is something far different, drought of massive
proportion in terms of overall absolute lack of precipitation and for very, very long
periods of time.The capabilities that have been enhanced since 200S, with increased
satellite, radar and remote·sensoring capabilities are not only useful for sensoring and
monitoring those conditions that are related to high levels of precipitation, but also
those conditions that are related to low levels of precipitation, such as higher
temperatures, drought and fires.These increased data gathering capabilities, monitoring
and analysis that have been enhanced for utilization include the analysis of vegetation
health, ground moisture content, the moisture content of air vapors and the lightning
strikes in convective clouds. These are all monitored for the likelihood of fire conditions
in governmental offices and U.S. university research facilities that research and monitor
for fire. The dryness of the vegetation is monitored and rated as a fuels source to
measure the burning potential given the dryness of the vegetation after months of
drought, all of which is being monitored.!n fact, the fires in the west in the winter of
2006, started all at once, in various locations in western states, and the causative factor
as reported, was dry lightning, with it being reported that the fires started with 2,000
dry lightning strikes in Utah and neighboring states. Lightning potential of clouds is
been monitored with the enhanced COES capabilities. There have been large numbers
of research studies and experiments worldwide in both lightning suppression and
lightning generation. !n 2006, a record amount of forest was burned in the U.S., with
millions of acres being burned.As well, the general pattern of precipitation has been
abnormal. For instance, there has been a great deal of rainfall in the spring and
summer over much of Texas. This follows a period of severe, longstanding drought for
much of Texas. The rain that has been occurring in the spring and summer of 2007 has
been at record level and for quite a long duration. This follows record droughts in the
same region. With the destruction of the earth due to the drought, the heavy record
rainfall resulted in little of the rain being absorbed into the earth that had been
damaged by the drought, increasing the destruction to the earth, the potentialities for
flooding and the lack of capture of the rainfall in the levels of freshwater.What has been
seen as a result of these massively abnormal rainfall patterns is tremendous destruction
to the earth, and very, very low fresh water levels, which have reached a level never
seen before in history. There has also been a massive increase in the monitoring and
measurement of the freshwater levels in the United States and other countries that
matches in time the abnormal weather patterns, the severe flood and drought
conditions and the crisis levels of freshwater loss both in the U.S. and worldwide.
There has been, for many regions of the United States since 200S, heavy rainfall in one
region right next to areas experiencing severe drought conditions. For instance, the
Northwestern United States tends to receive a relatively moderate or higher amount of
rain naturally, given where it is sited and normal rainfall patterns. !nstead, what has
been occurring is, in some cases, record setting rainfall along the coast, with periods of
little rainfall inland. Those areas that usually receive a fair amount of precipitation are
receiving little at all. The result is record longstanding drought and large forest fires.!n
the spring and summer of 2007, there has been heavy massive precipitation and
flooding in the central part of the United States, from Ninnesota down to Texas,
Oklahoma and Louisiana. With a normal precipitation pattern, weather should be
passing through the western states, dropping precipitation moving toward these states.
!nstead, the areas to the west of the states that are receiving record rainfall, are
receiving little rainfall at all. The entire inland western United States is experiencing in
many areas, severe drought.While little or no rain is being seen in regions west of areas
that are getting record rainfall, such as Oklahoma and Texas, the precipitation and
weather patterns that would naturally and normally be continuing past the central
states and bringing precipitation further east have been abnormal as well. The areas
east of the regions that are receiving record rainfall, Alabama and Ceorgia to the east
of Oklahoma and Texas are receiving little rainfall at all, and are experiencing severe,
abnormal drought.!n looking at radar and satellite coverage in this time period, what is
notable is a very heavy concentration of precipitation in one region, with little or no
precipitation in the nearby regions. !t appears that all the available precipitation for a
region that would normally fall variably throughout the whole region is all concentrated
in terms of precipitation and for very long periods of time, with the surrounding areas
receiving little at all.What has also been seen since 200S, is rainfall that is concentrated
over rivers that all feed into the same watershed areas, thus serving to inundate whole
massive regions and affect areas downriver.With the heavy rainfall and flooding in the
central part of the U.S. in the spring and summer of 2007, what has been seen is a
path of storms and rainfall right over rivers, that serve to raise the water levels and
saturate the region, these storms then, again in highly patterned what appear to be
paths or tracks move to the east or west, often raining over other rivers, serving to, in a
very short period of time, with no let up, rain heavily and steadily, serving to inundate
the whole region, resulting in flooding.One of the increased capabilities that was
implemented in 200S was remote sensoring of both rivers and lakes in the continental
United States as well as ground moisture levels. What has increased since this remote
sensoring of rivers and lakes were implemented in 200S, has been massive flooding and
inundation related to extremely high water levels in rivers and lakes, and nearby ground
saturation, that with additional rainfall led to flooding. This was true with Hurricane
Katrina, with the very high water levels of the Nississippi, Pearl, Biloxi and Atchafalaya
Rivers, and Lake Pontchartrain and Lake Borgne. With the implementation of the ability
to remote sensor monitor the water levels in these bodies of water in 200S, and the
moisture content of the ground, what resulted was the capability to tell when and
where the capacity for flooding had been reached. What has resulted from these
increased capabilities has been not specifically an increased ability to forecast flooding,
but an immediate increase in flooding due to heavy precipitation patterns over rivers,
and coasts, all after the capacity to measure these waterways had been
implemented.Like the hurricanes that have hit in the same region again and again in a
short period of time, which serves to massively exponentially increase damage, with no
or little time in between, these abnormal levels of precipitation, either abnormally high
or low and in many cases alternating with each other, with little normal precipitation
occurring at all, has massively accelerated destruction.Heavy rainfall occurring in
concentrated regions for long periods of time has served to greatly exponentially
increase the damage. !f there is rain in an area, that lets up, the water level in the
rivers, lakes, and waterways soon drop, and the ground loses moisture content within a
few days. With these massive stationary, feeding into the same ¨watershed system"
rainfall patterns, with no let up, what are set up are completely abnormal conditions for
massive flooding, due to, in some cases, months of steady, uninterrupted rainfall
concentrated on specific coasts, regions, and river and watershed systems to create
megaflood conditions.As well, these flooding events are very like the hurricanes that
have been seen in the last number of years in the abnormality of their massive scale of
size.Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, in many ways, shared characteristics of the other
massive flooding events in the United States since 200S that were not as a result of
hurricanes.The flooding that occurred in the Atlantic Coastal states in 2006 resulted
from a number of storms in a row, and months of rainfall, some of it record amounts, in
the region. !n fact, this was similar to what had occurred on the Culf Coast before
Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.Hurricane Katrina for example, and it's wind speeds, did
little damage to New Orleans. The damage was done by a massive ¨inundation event",
which was the result not just of what could be called ¨Hurricane Katrina" a single
hurricane that hit New Orleans, but the superstorm called Hurricane Katrina, that had
three separate eyewalls hitting the Nississippi River, the Pearl River and the Biloxi River,
hundreds of miles apart, and backflowing them against the very high levels of water
moving downriver to the ocean from both the region being inundated with earlier
storms and hurricanes that had also tracked north and dumped a great deal of
precipitation before Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. What occurred with the Hurricane
Katrina event might best be described as a massive ¨water inundation bomb event"
with the massive levels of water flowing downriver from earlier heavy rainfall flowing
down very high level waterways into the Culf of Nexico, being hit by the
¨superhurricane Katrina with multiple eyewalls", that hit specifically at the terminuses of
the mouths of the three rivers with enough force to backflow them for miles. With the
force of the water moving upriver hitting against the force of the very high water levels
flowing down the rivers due to earlier storms and hurricanes, the result was a massive
inundation event as the water flowed out of existing waterways which resulted in a
massive destruction of rivers, wetlands, lakes and the surrounding land in the region as
an absolutely massive region was inundated by this event.Although the destruction with
Hurricane Katrina was described as being the result of just Hurricane Katrina, in fact,
what created a large amount of the destruction, the massive flooding, was the result of
not just one storm or hurricane, but a number of storms and hurricanes in a row that
served to already inundate the Culf Coast region before Hurricanes Katrina and Rita hit
the Culf Coast.!n that sense, what appears to be this highly tracked methodical path of
storms which has been occurring with both storms and hurricanes, has served to keep
stationary, storms that expel a lot of rain that both affect certain regions and moving
downriver, affect downriver watershed areas, with rain then often occurring in these
areas downriver at the same time or subsequently. The result is a massive volume of
water flowing through certain areas all at the same time. With regions that had received
almost continuous rainfall for long periods of time, also receiving a large volume of
water moving through the waterways from upriver rain, and an event of massive rainfall
in a short period of time from storms or hurricanes, the result has been to flood and in
these cases, massively inundate regions that had already received large amounts of
almost continuous rainfall for long periods of time before.This was the case with
Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. And it has been the case with a number of massive
flooding events since.
!n the spring and summer of 2007, what has been seen is quite heavy and almost
continuous rain within the central United States Nississippi River and tributary rivers
watershed down to the Culf of Nexico. What has also been seen is fairly continuous
intermittent rain on the Culf of Nexico Coast, serving to keep the whole region
saturated, and leading to massive flooding in a number of places.Throughout the spring
and summer, precipitation and rainfall has been clustered in this region, raining first in
one area, and often over one river system, sometimes for long periods of time, then
moving to another nearby river system and again, often remaining there for long
periods of time, raining for long periods. What has been seen resulting from this is
heavy incidences of flooding throughout the Nidwest in the spring and summer of 2007.
This has included Ninnesota, Wisconsin, !llinois, !ndiana, Ohio, Oklahoma and Texas.
These are regions that feed into the tributaries of the Nississippi River and with rain
falling heavily in the northern, central and the southern states, keeping the entire
¨north·south" watershed saturated, the result is that the entire massive watershed
region has been fully saturated, so that heavy rainfall in one region, within a short
period of time, within that watershed, will lead to flooding. As well, what has been seen
is heavy flooding capacity rainfall after saturation levels have been reached in the
northern states within this watershed, then the heavy rainfall pattern shifting south of
there, so that the region south of the area that had just received a tremendous and
flooding amount of rainfall to the north, is receiving not only the rainfall that is falling
heavily and quickly in that already saturated area to the south, but also dealing with a
huge volume of water flowing downriver through that region from the floods north of
there, leading to massive flooding events. This is what has occurred with the record
flooding in Oklahoma and Texas in the summer of 2007. This was the result not only of
record short term rainfall that fell in Texas and Oklahoma, but a fully saturated ground
and high water levels and water rushing downriver in those regions from heavy rainfall
that had occurred north of there, and from multiple river systems feeding into it. This
led to massive flooding, and as a result of what appears to be highly organized rainfall
patterns. While the central regions were receiving massive rainfall, surrounding regions
have received little or none, it appearing as if all the available precipitation was being
centered in these regions, with the rainfall expelled there.What has also been seen in
the summer of 2007, with this heavy rainfall and high river and ground levels of
saturation, in the central Nississippi watershed, with rain both in specific areas and in
watershed regions north of there, is heavy rainfall also coming up from the Culf of
Nexico to again inundate the same region, while heavy rainfall is also falling north of
there to also bring heavy rainfall, so that the rainfall is coming from two different
directions, to again inundate and cause flooding in the region.This is a pattern that has
been seen in the flooding off the coasts of the United States, with rainfall moving along
the rivers, to create high water levels and with heavy massive rainfall off the ocean
onto land, leading to massive flooding along the coasts and inland. This happened in
the Southwest in the winter of 200S·2006, it happened in the Northeast and
Northcentral regions in the spring and summer of 2006. and it happened in the fall of
2006 in the Northwest. !t is also what happened with Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.What
was seen before Hurricanes Katrina and Rita hit the Culf Coast, were earlier hurricanes
that both served to keep the Culf Coast regions saturated and at very high water levels.
These hurricanes then moved far north in very patterned ways along the Nississippi
watershed river system, bringing a great deal of rain in the Nississippi River watershed,
and with this heavy rainfall from previous hurricanes flowing downriver through the
Nississippi and tributaries, it served to keep the Nississippi and other downriver rivers
on the Culf of Nexico at very high water levels so that when Hurricanes Katrina and
Rita hit, it resulted in tremendous flooding.Heavy flooding has been seen with Tropical
Storm Erin and Hurricane Dean, two storms in August 2007. These two storms, as has
been the case for numerous hurricanes and tropical storms in the last four years, have
centered in and around the Culf of Nexico.Although Dean formed as a Tropical Storm
first and in the Atlantic Ocean before Tropical Storm Erin, Erin formed as a tropical
depression on the night of August 14, 2007 in the Central Culf of Nexico. !t
strengthened from a tropical depression to a tropical storm, before making landfall early
August 16 just north of Corpus Christi, Texas adding even more heavy rain to the
region. Corpus Christi had already received over 18 inches of rain in ]uly, a record for
the month.!nstead of weakening over land as tropical storms and hurricanes naturally
do, as was reported in an AP news report, ¨the remnants of Tropical Storm Erin
spawned flooding in Texas and Oklahoma. !nstead of weakening as it moved inland, the
storm produced winds of more than 80 miles per hour and heavy rain."Tropical Storm
Erin brought heavy rainfall further inland across Texas and Oklahoma. !t is noted on a
NASA website which measures precipitation levels, ¨the highest rainfall totals for the
period are around six to eight inches over the central Texas Culf Coast". Rainfall
continued on a northwest path, bringing more rain to already inundated regions in
Central Texas and to Oklahoma, a region that has in the summer of 2007, already
experienced record rainfall and flooding.Tropical Storm Erin served to reinundate
regions that had already experienced record rainfall and flooding with record levels of
rainfall in the spring and summer of 2007. !t also brought heavy rainfall levels to the
Central Culf Coast of Texas, before moving north. !t also brought heavy rainfall to
Ninnesota and Wisconsin.Some of the heavy rain that has been falling in the central
United States, including in Oklahoma and Texas continued moving downriver through
river systems which also affect Nexico to the south. Nexico was heavily affected by
massive flooding from Hurricane Dean.Hurricane Dean formed in the Atlantic and was
upgraded to a hurricane on August 16, 2007. On August 18th, a double eyewall was
noted as Hurricane Dean, a category four hurricane, moved toward land and the island
of ]amaica. Hurricane Dean resulted in a number of deaths in ]amaica and then in Haiti,
and resulted in an estimate 1.4 billion dollars in damage in ]amaica alone.Hurricane
Dean strengthened to a Category five hurricane in the waters off the coast of the
Yucatan Peninsula and slammed into Nexico's Caribbean coast on August 21st, landing
around the cruise ship port of Costa Naya, near the border with Belize. !t passed
through the Yucatan Peninsula, with heavy rainfall in the interior and moved into the
Culf of Nexico. On the Yucatan Peninsula, a number of cities and villages, both in the
interior and on the coasts experienced damage. Coastal villages and cities damaged by
Hurricane Dean on the Yucatan Peninsula included Nahahual and Ciudad del Carmen.!n
looking at the track of Hurricane Dean across the Yucatan, the track and damage
¨dovetailed with the part of the Yucatan that had been damaged with Hurricane Wilma
in 200S. For instance, the coastal regions on the northern tip of the Yucatan Peninsula,
including the cities of Cozumel, Cancun and Playa del Carmen suffered massive damage
with Hurricane Wilma. With Hurricane Dean, what was damaged was a region on the
Yucatan Peninsula just south of the damage and path of Hurricane Wilma in 200S, thus
serving to ¨dovetail with" and continue on further south, the earlier damage on the
Yucatan Peninsula with Hurricane Wilma.After crossing the Culf of Nexico, Hurricane
Dean made a second landfall near Tecolutla, veracruz in Nexico on August 22 as a
Category 2 hurricane, doing a great deal of damage in veracruz.As had been the case
with Tropical Storm Erin, although Hurricane Dean weakened over land, it brought
massive amounts of rain, which did a tremendous amount of damage.!n an AFP news
report on August 23rd, it reported that the remnants of Hurricane Dean triggered
mudslides in Nexico as the driving rain drenched a large part of the country, bringing
the storm's death toll to at least 2S. And with river levels swelling rapidly and pounding
rain hitting unstable mountain flanks, officials warned the crisis was far from over, even
though Hurricane Dean was downgraded to a tropical depression. Several rivers burst
their banks in the central Nexican state of Hidalgo, cutting off electricity and damaging
farmland. Nore than 10,000 people in the state were evacuated to higher ground as
river levels continued to rise."An official in Nexico told Televisa television, ¨we remain
concerned because Dean is covering much of the Republic of Nexico." The flooding
affected large parts of Nexico, with the states of veracruz, Pueblo and Hidalgo being
the most directly affected.These hurricanes are very like the hurricanes seen in the last
decade and particularly in the last few years, with a massive increase in flooding related
to hurricanes. !ndeed most of the damage being seen with hurricanes in the last few
years is related to flooding, which is not naturally, historically, what causes the most
damage with hurricanes, which is wind damage.As well, what is seen with Tropical
Storm Erin and with Hurricane Dean is a massive amount of rainfall falling in one region
and within a very short period of time. With Tropical Storm Erin, this followed record
amounts of rainfall in regions that had just been inundated with record rainfall and
flooding from non·hurricane storms that all served to inundate the same region within a
very short time period.!n fact, severe weather and steady, heavy rainfall has continued
with new storm systems in the same regions that were affected by Hurricanes Dean
and Erin, although both hurricanes had passed.Not long after Hurricane Dean passed
through Nexico, on August 27, 2007, the forecast for the next three days in the same
region affected by Hurricane Dean in Nexico was, ¨showers, thunderstorms and
flooding rain along the central Nexican coast. !t noted, ¨The heavy rain from this
feature will hammer some of the same areas of Nexico affected by Dean for the next 36
to 48 hours. Some of this feature's moisture will also reach parts of deep South
Texas."What is notable about this weather front is that it is hitting exactly the same
place hit by massive rainfall just earlier with Hurricane Dean. !t also is affecting all the
way north to deep South Texas an area affected by both Tropical Storm Erin and
Hurricane Dean and large numbers of other storms to create massive flooding
earlier.On August 23, 2007, there were heavy storms in Belize and in the Nexican state
of Ouintana Roo, just north of Belize that were devastated by Hurricane Dean.On
August 23, 2007, there were storms and rainfall on the U.S. Culf Coast, from Baton
Rouge and New Orleans all the way across the northwest Culf Coast region, including
north of the Culf Coast, in Houston and nearby Lake Charles, and further south, on the
Culf Coast of Texas, all the way down to Corpus Christi and south into Nexico. Thus, in
the U.S. the entire northwest Culf of Nexico region is receiving heavy continuous
rainfall, after it had already received heavy rainfall from earlier storms, and flooding
from high river levels coming down from the northern parts of Texas and Oklahoma and
further north. This is like earlier similar patterns of heavy, continuous rainfall from
various types of storms, all impacting a region in a very short period of time, rain
coming from both inland and other storms, such as hurricanes from the ocean and all
serving to massively saturate a region.Hurricanes Katrina and Rita hit the Culf Coast
when the levels of water at the Culf Coast were already very high and the entire region
saturated from earlier storms and hurricanes.
What is also disturbing is the building of a special meteorological buoy at the Rosenstiel
School of Narine and Atmospheric Science at the University of Niami and it's
deployment in August 2007.U.S. governmental funds were spent on enhanced capability
equipment and technology for research in this new meteorological buoy. This buoy
project, which was supported by almost $1,000,000 of funding from the National
Science Foundation's Ocean Technology and !nterdisciplinary Coordination program was
developed and is being used by researchers at the Rosenstiel School of Narine and
Atmospheric Science at the University of Niami. These researchers, many of whom are
not Americans, designed a buoy with both a rugged hull and instrumentation design for
meteorological measurements in high wind and wave environments. !t incorporates the
latest sensors, some with special modifications to survive the extreme conditions.The
buoy, which has been under design for several years, is being used this year, 2007, by
researchers from the Rosenstiel School. The buoy, which was deployed off of
]acksonville, Florida in early August, 2007, will be deployed for several months.!n
noting the purpose of the buoy, Dr Neil Williams, Rosenstiel School scientist and project
co·investigator said, ¨While the current mission for this platform is hurricane research,
we have plans in place to use it for research in a variety of high sea state conditions
around the world."!t was noted that one of the reasons for the specific rugged hull
design and instrumentation of the buoy was because there were relatively few
examples of data recovered from extreme wind conditions. !n fact, with both Hurricane
Katrina and Hurricane Wilma, the severity of the storms resulted in destruction to buoys
and meteorological sensors, serving to limit the information available both for
forecasting of these storms themselves and later efforts to reconstruct what had
occurred in the storms.During Hurricane Wilma in the Culf of Nexico, which severely
affected the Yucatan Peninsula in Nexico, it was reported during the storm that due to
the severity of the waves, several reporting buoys were unable to send retrievable
information for use in forecasting and information about the storm. With Hurricane
Katrina, when the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers sought to reconstruct what had
occurred after the hurricane, all the remote sensors that transmitted information had
been destroyed on the coast itself and on the rivers. The only remote sensors still intact
were a few in Lake Pontchartrain, as reported by a researcher working for the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers. Thus in Hurricane Katrina as well, critical information needed
to inform people of the severity of the hurricane and to reconstruct events after, was
lost.This buoy, as noted, is to be used for research. The cost was tremendously high,
almost a million dollars, and the question is why U.S. taxpayer money is being spent on
research projects that allow gathering of information, in severe conditions, but are not
being used to forecast these conditions to the National Hurricane Center or the National
Weather Service or the American people. As well, as noted, this buoy is outfitted
specifically for very severe conditions for information gathering and a question is why
would there be an assumption in early August 2007 that in the next months there
would be these very severe conditions that would require the use of this meteorological
buoy in the Culf of Nexico or on the Culf or Atlantic coasts of the United States?
PART TWO
There has been concern in the past that given the continuing weather modification
practices, including cloud seeding, and the massive amount of research specifically
applicable to weather modification that has been done since, including active weather
modification experimentation, by a number of governments around the world, that
weather modification and the information gathering, experimentation, research,
modeling and remote - sensoring is being used to directly modify the weather.Even by
the 1370s, it was understood by the scientific communities around the world that there
was, even at that point, enough information and enough researched use of weather
modification and it's effectiveness that it would be possible that weather could be used
as a means of aggression by some governments against other countries. On December
10, 1376, the U.N. Ceneral Assembly adopted resolution 31/72, and in October, S,
1378, it was entered into force, called the ¨Convention on the Prohibition of Nilitary or
Any Other Hostile Use of Environmental Nodification Techniques" This was after the
U.S. Congress held hearings in 1372 and the U.S. Senate adopted a resolution in 1373
calling for an international agreement ¨prohibiting the use of any environmental or
geophysical modification activity as a weapon of war. As a result of this resolution, the
President ordered the Department of Defense to undertake an in·depth review of the
military aspects of weather and other environmental modification techniques. The result
of this study and a subsequent interagency study led to the U.S. government's decision
to seek agreement with the Soviet Union to explore the possibilities of an international
agreement. !n August 137S, after a number of meetings and negotiations between the
U.S. and the Soviet Union, the chief representatives of the U.S. and Soviet Union
delegations to the Conference of the Committee on Disarmament (CCD) tabled, in
parallel, identical draft texts of a ¨Convention on the Prohibition of Nilitary or any Other
Hostile Use of Environmental Nodification Techniques"The Convention defines
environmental modification techniques as changing - through the deliberate
manipulation of natural processes - the dynamics, composition or structure of the
earth, including its biota, lithosphere, hydro·sphere, and atmosphere, or of outer space.
Changes in weather or climate patterns, in ocean currents, or in the state of the ozone
layer or ionosphere, or an upset in the ecological balance of a region are some of the
effects which might result from the use of environmental modification techniques."!n
fact, what has been occurring for the last number of decades, in the U.S. and in much
of the rest of the world, and particularly to a massively increased degree in the last
number of years, is exactly that, which is noted as the result of environmental
modification techniques, ¨Changes in weather or climate patterns, in ocean currents, or
in the state of the ozone layer or ionosphere, or an upset in the ecological balance of a
region are some of the effects which might result from the use of environmental
modification techniques." Article ! sets forth the basic commitment: ¨Each State Party to
this Convention undertakes not to engage in military or any other hostile use of
environmental modification techniques having widespread, long·lasting or severe effects
as the means of destruction, damage or injury to any other State Party." ¨Widespread"
is defined as ¨encompassing an area on the scale of several hundred square
kilometers", ¨long·lasting" is defined as ¨lasting for a period of months, or
approximately a season", and ¨severe" is defined as ¨involving serious or significant
disruption or harm to human life, natural and economic resources or other assets." One
of the notable features of this passage is what is defined as ¨widespread" in the degree
of environmental impact. ¨Widespread" is defined as ¨encompassing an area on the
scale of several hundred square kilometers." !n fact, naturally any weather related
phenomena in terms of scale of damage would be considered massively large and
widespread if it did impact an area on the scale of several hundred square kilometers,
as was noted in this 1377 document. The area damaged in Hurricane Katrina was
30,000 square miles, the size of the land mass of Britain. There was, with this
resolution, an acknowledgement that weather modification was being done, which has
certainly continued with cloud seeding and other techniques. This resolution, not only
served to acknowledge that use, but to limit the use and purpose and work to ensure
that any of these weather modification techniques would not be used for purposes of
aggression against other countries.Article !!! of the resolution, included a passage
about the sharing of research among countries, including that specific to weather
modification research, experimentation and use in and of itself, and that research, data
gathering, modeling, sensoring, simulation and experimentation that could be applicable
to weather modification and of which there has been a tremendous amount since
1377.Article !!!, section 2 of the resolution says, ¨The States Parties to this Convention
undertake to facilitate, and have the right to participate in, the fullest possible exchange
of scientific and technological information on the use of environmental modification
techniques for peaceful purposes. States Parties in a position to do so shall contribute,
alone or together with other States or international organizations, to international
economic and scientific co·operation in the preservation, improvement, and peaceful
utilization of the environment, with due consideration for the needs of the developing
areas of the world." There was clearly already an understanding that weather
modification could affect change in the weather and this resolution served to
underscore that understanding and sought to limit any use or connected to use to
ensure that it was not used for aggression. !t also served to work to ensure with this
resolution, and understanding among a large number of nations that any shared
information and cooperative ventures would not be used for purposes of aggression.
And it also paved the way for much further increased international sharing and
cooperation of research, data gathering, satellite and radar and remote sensoring
information, and as noted with that as the purpose.What has been seen is with the
increase of these capabilities and with the involvement of a number of countries in this
research being done cooperatively, is, to all apparent with the increase of these
capabilities, not greatly improved forecasting, but a massive increase in severely
abnormal weather, beyond anything ever seen naturally and historically, worldwide, in
scope, occurrence, and severity.The countries listed as working with the United States
in NASA sponsored research are ]apan, Cermany, Britain, France and Canada. The
governments of ]apan and Cermany are working on more than one project with the
United States in environmental research and are heavily involved in environmental
research in their own countries and other countries. !n the case of ]apan, their ¨Earth
Simulator" is the largest supercomputer in the world which has as it's sole function
supercomputing of weather and environmental variables. Although the weather
forecasting worldwide has not improved appreciably with these types of capabilities,
which is the reason given for the Earth Simulator, the earth simulator itself does have
the capacity necessary for weather modification. Weather modification, unlike weather
forecasting, requires massive computational capabilities running numerous weather and
environmental models which are applicable to weather modification but are useless for
weather forecasting. !n fact, as environmental and weather computer simulation
modelers have long known, and described as the ¨Butterfly Effect" by Charney, one of
the early environmental and weather modelers, the kind of weather and environmental
computing being done by ]apan's Earth Simulator, is in and of itself, useless for
weather forecasting as the variables of prospective natural weather are naturally
inexact and the exponential amplitude of these natural variables, make weather
forecasting using these modeling methods fully inexact and useless for weather
forecasting. However, this weather and environmental modeling and these massive
computational capabilities are essential for weather modification.]apan and Cermany
have also notably as nations benefitted economically from the uses that are being made
of the so called ¨global warming" and problems with carbon dioxide that are being
ascribed as the ¨cause" of global warming and abnormal and severe weather. !n reality,
carbon dioxide levels in most countries have decreased, not increased. That is certainly
true of the US where with air pollution controls instituted in the 1370's, the carbon
dioxide levels are far lower than they were in the 13S0's and 1360's when cities like
Pittsburgh were so polluted it was sometimes difficult to see through the smog.
Although there has always been a ¨heat island" effect, with temperatures being
relatively warmer in populated areas where there is higher energy expenditure, it is
directly relatable to that and has no effect on the weather at all, either in terms of
temperatures rising ¨generally" because of carbon dioxide or other pollutants or
weather becoming more severe due to this cause.However, carbon dioxide levels like
the earlier abnormal weather severity have been ascribed to two different causes at two
times that served to benefit ]apan and Cermany financially and detriment other
countries. !n the late 1380's, the severe and abnormal weather, instead of being
ascribed to high CO2 levels was ascribed as being caused by a ¨hole in the ozone
layer". With the use of this described cause, with no evidence to back it up as is the
case now with ascribing the cause as being ¨high CO2 levels", the claim that global
warming was caused by a hole in the ozone layer caused by chemical CFC's resulted in
the banning of products contained CFC's. Nost of these products were made by US
chemical companies, just as ]apan and Cermany were jointly targeting chemical
companies both in the US and worldwide.At the present time, ]apan and Cermany are
both haranguing and pressuring other countries worldwide to ¨cut CO2 emissions in
their countries" due to ¨global warming" and presenting themselves and their products
as ¨earth friendly". However, in their actual actions connected to various treaties and
pacts being used politically, such as the Kyoto Pact, it is quite clear these two countries
are not ¨environmentally friendly" and not interested in cutting emissions in their
countries and with their products, but are interested in doing it in other countries to
work to attack and destroy other country's economies, which they are presently doing
worldwide generallyThe cap and trade system and the emission cuts being prescribed
using international venues and pacts such as the Kyoto Pact, are being used by ]apan
and Cermany to force other countries to massively cut industrial production in their
countries, while ]apan and Cermany are using the same ¨cap and trade system" to,
instead, of cutting emissions of their own products or cutting industrial production in
their own countries, instead are ¨trading" with other countries to be allowed to not cut
industrial and energy production in their countries which would hurt their economies,
but instead be ¨credited" if they sell and produce energy in other countries using
¨cleaner technology" such as gas, instead of coal. !n this way, ]apan and Cermany
worldwide are taking over national energy production in other countries, displacing
domestic producers and gaining control of energy supplying worldwide and destroying
national control of domestic energy production. They are also working to destroy other
country's domestic industrial production ¨overall" and in specific industries, such as
autos and air transport, while also targeting those economic sectors.!n the case of
automobiles, while ]apan and Cermany have jointly been targeting the US auto industry
and the auto industry worldwide, they have been making vehicles that are certainly no
more energy efficient or less polluting, they are using this to attack and destroy other
country's auto industries, including the US. They have pressured and coerced the US to
force US automakers, who tended to make larger vehicles, since the ]apanese and
Cermans had already taken over the US small car market, to destroy their production of
larger vehicles, using the fake rationale of 'cutting emissions" to pressure US companies
aided by the US government being pressured by ]apan and Cermany internationally to
massively cut their production of larger vehicles. This has served to destroy production
of US vehicles overall, since this is what US automakers had a larger share of auto
production in. At the same time, ]apan and Cermany have massively increased their
production of larger vehicles being built and imported into the US, that are no more fuel
efficient than US ones, to target the US auto companies and industry to destroy it, so
they could gain monopoly control. While ]apan now has eight auto companies, centered
in ]apan, and Cermany five, centered in Cermany, the US which had three auto
companies, has two in bankruptcy and the other severely struggling economically. At
the same time ]apan increased it's imports of ]apanese vehicles from approximately 1.S
million a year in 1336 to 2.S million a year in the last couple of years, while only
allowing 14,000 US vehicles into ]apan, serving to massively displace and assault US
automakers while also working to force production cuts using the issue of auto
emissions.The auto industry is a specific industry, however, in other transport industries
such as airlines, the same pressure is being exerted by these two nations and as well
these forced cuts are cutting ¨industrial production ¨overall" to attack other country's
economies generally.
