“man-induced drought”

Blaming the worldwide drought of 1934 on farmers in the Oklahoma Panhandle.

“The Dustbowl occurred during the 1930s because of a combination of man-induced drought and the (mis)use of relatively new farming practices.

NASA and NOAA had good reason to make the heat of 1934 disappear. The heat and drought was global, the Arctic was dissolving, England was going to drown, and the whole world had “freak weather.”  If people knew about that, it would wreck their global warming scam.

HEAVY CROP LOSSES. (Australian Cable Service.)


A blasting heat wave with the tem-perature around 100 swept the Western Canadian prairies again to-day, extending from Edmonton to Regina, and then southward through the Dakotas to Nebraska, roughly comprising a third of the territory of the United States and Canada.


The Canadian Government has issued a bulletin describing as ex-tremely serious the crop situation. The losses through failed crops in these 18 States are estimated at 1,500,000,000 dollars.

    Is this by the same people who said Genghis Khan started the Little Ice Age? Anyone can google, or rather FreeSpoken, the photos of Solomon Butcher taken in the 1880s of homesteads in Nebraska. These show clearly why the Great Plains were called the Great American Desert. Panoramic views show large patches of open ground, which would have been subject to wind erosion even before they were plowed. If anyone bothers to familiarize themselves with early 1900’s farming, they would learn that much that is done by tractors today, was done by man and horse. My father, who was born in the 1920’s, used a scythe to cut wheat in Oklahoma. In Oklahoma, they weren’t the richest farmers in the nation, so they may have been behind to curve on mechanization. In the early days of mechanization, wheat was cut by hand and thrown into a horse drawn wagon, which took the wheat to a stationary motorized thresher. Because of this, large crews were required at harvest time.
    The purpose of plowing is contrary to the article. Indeed, it was to roll the remaining organic material into the soil, and to CAPTURE any rain fall and hold it in the soil, rather than let the water and topsoil run off into the creeks. On my grandfather’s farm the only place where you could find erosion was in the pasture which had never been plowed and still had buffalo wallows in it. This natural erosion he inhibited through intervention.
    They used to show films of farming prior to the Dust Bowl, where farmers plowed long flat rows, that became subject to erosion from heavy rains or wind when there was no rain. After the Dust Bowl, farmers were taught by a network of county farming agents to plow parallel to the contour of the land, to better catch and hold the rain in the soil and to inhibit erosion. If mechanization were the cause of the Dust Bowl, then why was it not across the entire Great Plains from Saskatchewan to Oklahoma?
    Could the Dust Bowl happen again today? Droughts are not controlled by humans, so they can happen at any time. Would it be as severe as it was, with much more mechanization and probably more land in production? It would depend on how long the drought lasted, but agricultural science and engineering, is continually advancing so we are probably better prepared today than then.
    There is also the issue that humans will always push into marginal lands during good “climate” periods, which may not be sustainable during bad weather, or climate periods. The Vikings farming in Greenland, is an example. Of course, there are those who say, that had it not been for Genghis Khan, the Vikings would still be farming in Greenland today, and that is where their arguments start eating their own tale.

      Climate anomalies happened 100000s of times before the 1st human started to farm,
      but for some odd reason all anomalies since then are man made.

      Experts came to this conclusion shortly after the club of rome was created and a barrage of apocalyptic scenarios appeared out of nothing to destroy humanity.
      ( and it has nothing to do with forcing humanity into submission with guilt and fear)

    In going through the clips that Tony has posted, I had to laugh (then cringe) at the headline “Europe Revives Pagan Rituals”. How thin the veneer of civilization and rational thought is. Unfortunately, civil society is held together by a few intelligent and bold people, and it is always under attack by the random nature of the earthly systems and by the deviousness of evil people and their useful minions. Sometimes you just need someone like Milei to take over and grind the collectivists into dust, so that the people can redirect themselves in useful and meaningful ways.

    1934 and 1936 heatwaves were discretely solar driven. Analogues of 1934 occurred in 1949, 1976, 2003, and 2018, analogues of 1936 occurred in 1540, 1757, and 2006.
