Global Warming To Cause More Floods

After telling us for decades that global warming was going to dry up our rivers, experts say that global warming is going to put too much water in our rivers.

Last week, the Guardian announced the worst drought in 2,000 years.

From August 1 to September 7, 1913 Nebraska was over 100 degrees every day but one.

1913 was a turbulent year of weather in the British Isles. A gale in southern England on March 22 partially destroyed Worthing pier. On May 9, rain fell continuously for 36 hours at Crathes, during which time over 4 inches was recorded. On September 15, an ‘extraordinary hailstorm’ lasting about 20 minutes visited Oundle. Stones lay 9 inches deep. On the same day a waterspout was seen on the Towy River. Three waterspouts were seen at Claypole during a heavy rainstorm on October 5. On May 9, a tornado did considerable damage to trees near Crosshaven, County Cork, Ireland. “Like the tornadoes of the United States it was preceded by remarkable noises, the affected area consisting of a narrow path a few miles long.”

    The current Global Warming claims are double-speak of Orwell fame. James Lindsey wrote an excellent description of what is actually going on as a select portion of the population seeks control over the rest.

    Another good less analytical discussion was written by Eric Hoffer, “The True Believer” in 1951.

    Circa 1890 my grandfather bought his house which was located on the banks of White River here in Arkansas. After 10 years of flooding he had enough and tore his house down board by board in 1901 and rebuilt it high on a hill six miles away which is the first rise of the hill country, just out of the White River flood plain. So all during the great White River floods of the 1920’s and 1930’s his house stayed high and dry. So the moral of the story is when you build in a flood plain expect floods. You can’t depend on droughts to keep you dry.

    Great photos and analysis, Tony! We have to remember these things. And without memory of the past we are doomed to repeat all the old mistakes. So simple, but so hard.
