The Rains Came ... And Came

Not by Fire but by Ice

The Rains came … And Came

28 Jun 06 - I hate to say "I told you so" (well, not really - actually I revel in
being a smartass) but quite a while ago I predicted these huge downpours that
have been afflicting the Northeastern U.S. and explained why they are becoming
more or less commonplace.

In the last few days much of the area has been hit by a foot or more of rainfall
and as I write this, it's still going on. I hate to tell you this, but you'd better get used 
to this - it's not only going to continue, it's going to get worse. Much worse.


The answer is quite simple - Mother Earth is belching up red hot magma through
the ocean floor all across the globe. It may come as a surprise to you, but two
thirds of all volcanic activity takes place under the world's seas, and currently that
activity is heating the oceans to the point where they are sending huge amounts of
moisture up into the atmosphere where it comes down as heavy rain in the spring,
summer and fall, and snow in the winter.

As Bob Felix points out in his incredibly informative website, it's
not global warming, but ocean warming.  The non-existent global warming isn't
heating the oceans as poor demented Al Gore would have us believe, but ocean
heating that's warming the globe.

Writes Michael Mandeville in "Since there is such a strong,
close reflection of the X Wave in this  tectonic zone, how can one avoid wondering
if there could be any correlation between El Nino and the motions of the Earth's
crust?" He cites charts that "demonstrate that the great rifts on the ocean bottom in
the South Pacific are the birthing grounds of El Nino, and that collectively the
spreading rifts and hot water plumes which rise from them in many places around
the Earth must be the birthing grounds of the present regime of global warming."

Let's get back to all that moisture that's coming out of the volcanically heated
oceans like steam coming out of the boiling water in a teapot and accept the fact
that unless all that red hot magma now heating the seas suddenly and inexplicably
knocks it off and lets the oceans cool, this regime of monstrous cloudbursts is
going to continue - and get worse.

Over and above the flooding the cloudbursts cause, just how else do they threaten
us? Well, if you take into account that in the winter the oceans will continue to send
moisture up into the atmosphere to come down as precipitation, it will come down
as snowfall.

Last fall parts of New England were drowned by as much as 20 inches of rain in a
matter of days. In the winter, 20 inches of rain amounts to 20   feet of snow. And
that foot or more of rain that's fallen in the northeast in the last few days snow
would amount to 12 or even 13 feet of snow. That means that somebody 6 feet tall
would have snow piled up six or seven feet above his or her head. If you want to
see what 13 feet of snow looks like, go to my website Wednesday on the Web

Japan last January).
