The impact of 'extreme' is felt by everyone, even those who would not admit to it. The explosion of communication capabilities for infants to those who are at the other end of the life spectrum affect our daily lives in one way or another. There are weather extremes, stock market extremes, housing extremes, population extremes and food issues extremes just to name a few. 'Extreme' weather has been getting a lot of attention for the global warming alarmists and some of the information looks convincing, however, I think the next few years will find the alarmists changing their tune.
Once colder temperatures take over, global warming will be old news and a new song will be sung. What could be strong enough to cause the turnaround? There are several factors moving into place beginning now. Another factor moves into place in late December and a third factor enters the picture in January 2008. By February 8 out of 10 weather factors will be in place to start the new tune.
It won’t be cold everywhere and the variations of temperature from cold to warm will happen also, just as the shifts to warm happened some years ago.
The extremes of media hype will have to calm down when government steps in to regulate one or more forms of our extreme communication abilities. Which one will it be? Free speech is guaranteed in the Constitution but will the press go too far one day soon? Will the wide open spaces of the internet suddenly get fenced in? Could cell phones become a thing of the past? What could possibly replace a cell phone? Ugly thought, I know. Any of this is possible with the upcoming new factors sliding into place.
Tuesday, March 6, 2007, 02:04 PM - ForecastsDear friends,
The ice may be melting and a few polar bears may get caught on a floating iceberg from time to time, but the general public should not fall prey to the hype - yes, hype - of the media and the former would be president to the crisis of 'global warming'.
Think of the word global. Do you know how much global history of warming is available? Not very much. Global warming issues are new and exciting to talk about. Media infusion and confusion is a fairly new phenomenon, designed to make money and to propagandize whatever the bucks will buy - fame, prestige, new grant money and a number of other incentives.
John Naisbitt, a truly international author of books such as Mega Trends and Mind Set offers sane and realistic advice on global warming. It is the simple statement he wrote that has me admiring the way his mind works. He wrote on page 27 of Mind Set "Read a significant number of the 963 books on global warming listed on Amazon.com and, to keep a balance, read from the 1,054 books (July 2006) on global cooling and the coming ice age?".
Naisbitt's advice is very good. I have read a few of the newer books on the subject and I agree with John that there is no absolute consensus, no hard facts to base the global warming issues on. It is a debate that no doubt will continue because it can be made into a panic situation and panic sells and sells and sells.
Naisbitt also concludes on page 31 that "It is in the nature of human beings to bend information in the direction of desired conclusions."
I can recommend another book that gives a good rational to global warming and climate change. It is Why Geography Matters: Three Challenges Facing America: Climate Change, the Rise of China, and Global Terrorism by Harm de Blij (Paperback - Feb 12, 2007)
Another is The Winds of Change: Climate, Weather, and the Destruction of Civilizations by Eugene Linden (Hardcover - Feb 7, 2006).
A thought comes to my mind where global warming issues have accelerated over the past 10-12 years. The planet Pluto has been in the zodiac sign of Sagittarius since 1995. Pluto represents the global consciousness, extremes and threats, rather than any weather value in astrometeorology, but the weather value for the zodiac sign Sagittarius is warm and dry.
In the next few years, Pluto transitions and moves into the zodiac sign of Capricorn. The weather value for Capricorn is cold and dry. It won't be long before the global warming could change into global cooling.
Keep in mind that the proponents of global warming are members of the same group which includes meteorologists - the same meteorologists who cannot develop a long range weather forecast.
Saturday, December 16, 2006, 06:39 AMEvery so often I have a vision of what astrometeorology could provide for the world. In a recent post to my weather list, a global group of people interested in weather and how we can see the future weather events, I mentioned one of my hopes, dreams or wishes, however it might be seen.
Post: I think that we should note also that the Moon in declination has been climbing to maximum degrees of 28+ in 2006. For the next 7 years, the maximum degrees will be reduced to 18+ degrees by the end of the 7 years.
This cycle has not been studied and compared with actual weather events by a number of researchers. In my vision for the future of astrometeorology, this kind of study would be only one in a number of other research studies. There is so much to be done in this area that it boggles my mind. We need a national center for the study of long range forecasting, one that includes the astromet!
Wednesday, November 8, 2006, 05:18 AMWith 5 planets in Scorpio for the election yesterday and with so
much at stake (like a vampire stake ) the party out of power
sucked the life out of the party in power. This morning Tim Russert
commented on the election sweep by the Democrats - 'it was seismic'.
Since Bush was elected I have been watching his progressed Moon
in declination head from the equator when he took the presidency to
today when that same Moon is locked into the south maximum position
for him. When the declination progressed Moon reaches one of the
north or south turning points, significant life changes are evident
In the years that I have observed the progressed declination
technique, I've seen people disappear from personal and from public
life - take Gore for example. At the time of the 2000 election,
Gore's prog dec Moon was entering his south maximum position. Gore
literally disappeared from public life and didn't reappear for a few
years. He came back very briefly sporting a beard and a few more
pounds. He announced that if he had to do the election over again he
would go his own way instead of listening to his 'party
He slipped back into anonymity until the global warming
movie was produced this past summer (2006) without that much fanfare.
The president can't disappear from view for the next two years
unless something drastic happens. Is he now politically dead by
virtue of being surrounded by the Democrats now with so much
power? Time will tell as to what these newly elected people can
bring about in the two years before the next presidential
election. I was thinking that the Tecumseh's curse, well known to most astrologers, could come into play during these last two years - the president could be politically dead, symbolic rather than otherwise.
Tuesday, September 5, 2006, 11:46 AMThe summer long range weather report on the WeatherSage website opens with this statement "The bride asks "what's the weather for my wedding on June 30, 2007?" - that's right, next year. Try and get an answer from a meteorologist and the reply will be that it cannot be done. Ask an astrometeorologist and you will receive the weather report".
In February this year, I had developed a one day wedding forecast for Saturday, September 2, 2006 - the wedding reception was to be held outside in the afternoon about 25 miles away from my home location in Rhode Island. The forecast was that the day would be warm and dry despite the fronts that were gathering all around.
As it turned out, the fronts were bands of rain and wind from tropical storm Ernesto. Stormy Ernesto changed status from a tropical storm to a hurricane, then back again as he made several landfalls traveling up the east coast of the USA over the past week.
After he passed over the Carolinas as a tropical storm, deluging the region (accurately forecast), he began to travel to New England. Naturally, I was very interested as to how Ernesto would affect my forecast - it wasn't looking good according to the tv meteorologists. In fact, listening to the forecasts was a mistake because of the anxiety it caused not only me, but I can imagine the anxiety that was felt by the person who purchased my forecast.
I care very much about forecasting as accurately as possible. Where else can anyone get a 'personal, custom forecast'? Only Astrologers and Astrometeorologists can provide such a service with a good measure of accuracy.
Watching the Weather Channel and local meteorologists on Friday, September 1st, and because the weather was practically 'here', I was ready to write a refund check for a wrong forecast because of their gloomy forecast of impending heavy rains and wind on Saturday, invalidating my forecast of warm and dry.
The tv meteorologists Friday forecast was the probability of rainfall on the wedding day and the percentages ranged from 10, to 60, to 30, and back to 60%. I was sad to think of what the bride and her family must be going through as the day progressed.
On the day of the wedding, Saturday, I watched the radar showing green bands of precipitation in surrounding states, but amazingly, much of Rhode Island was being spared. At about 3pm no rain fell in my location - could it possibly stay this way for the rest of the day?
Before leaving for an evening visiting with friends, I took one last look at the radar loops and just hoped for the best and that it continued to be dry. The time was about 3pm, probably the time of the wedding.
Arriving at our destination about 4:15pm, coincidentally very close to the wedding venue, not one drop of rain fell as we traveled across the state. During the rest of the evening, I would look out the window and find clouds and a few breezes, but no rain. Could this lack of rainfall actually continue through the end of the evening?
Finally, at 10:15pm we prepared to leave our friend's home and the hostess announced that it was just starting to 'mist' a bit. During the hour it took to reach our home there was only intermittent raindrops. I slept well.
The individual custom forecast was validated. It was cooler than I expected but it was almost 100% dry. The forecast was developed more than six months in advance by one person, one computer, no radar, no satellites - except for the Moon's placement.
