The Big Blocking Ridge an Existential Threat

Climate scientists see alarming new threat to California,
LA Times, December 5, 2017.

" patterns triggered by global warming block rainfall from reaching the state"..."

The real threat is not in Nature or its weather. The real threat is the greed driving the physical growth and natural destruction.

This new pattern of ridging has already been happening, growing for decades. Now, the only question is, "is this ridging part of the "new" weather of the NE Pac, a part of the "new," pattern, or merely one step towards an even drier future?"
That's the question.

The latter is indicated by the clear manifestation of a strong trend line towards drier and warmer Winters.

And, we have not done one damn thing to stop the criminal & corrupt behaviors that triggered these dire climate changes. We have not only not reduced our pollution effect, but are growing the "production and consumption" driving all these changes as fast as we can.

We just do our manufacturing pollution in China and India, who we've "exempted" from even the pathetic corporate environmentalism of Paris and Koyoto.  The places our corporate leaders moved our manufacturing to, Chin & India, to avoid the costs of decent wages and environmental protections, also happened to be exempted by the corporate greens from their from their already worthless climate treaties.

The fake corporate greens and their program of unlimited "green" growth has failed, as expected. It was designed to serve greed, not the general welfare of our people or our planet.


I've been tracking the NE Pac High for quite some time, and this year too:
