Marek Fire, Angel Island Fire, Gay Marriage Proposition – Is California Burning for a Reason?

October 13, 2008 / 5 Comments

Judgement day comes early for California maybe? California state is burning in the north on Angel Island and in the south at Marek. The fires are different - Angel Island is, well, an island that sit in the Bay near Sodom, um, San Francisco. And we know what happened to Sodom, don't we? Well, those of us who went to Sunday ...

Supernatural Power Creates Crop Circle from 3,000 Trees

September 15, 2008 / No Comments

Locals in Nepal are at a loss to explain how some 3,000 trees in a nearby forest in Banke, mid-western Nepal, collapsed in about 10 minutes. The trees at the Shrikrishna Community Forest, some 360 km west of Kathmandu just started tumbling down. There was no gale, no storm that day. Just falling trees. Not knowing what to think or who ...

September 10, 2008 / No Comments

I can think of two very good reasons to get out of Brazoria County, Texas. First we know where Hurricane Ike is and where it's heading. Yup, Brazoria County Judge Joe King announced a mandatory evacuation for residents of the 77541 zip code (Freeport and other coastal regions) at 10 a.m. today, while the rest of the county is subject ...

Global Cooling in Kenya?

September 5, 2008 / 1 Comment

Global cooling in Kenya? Well, it's definitely not getting warmer everywhere! There was a hailstorm in Kenya, about 220km from Nairobi. The heavy hailstorm fell on a deforested hillside in Gikingi Village. Snow followed to children's delight and snowmen were ... well, nothing about the snowmen. Not enough of the white stuff. But perhaps for the first time ever, Kenyans discovered ...

Spotless Sun Contributes to Climate Change

September 3, 2008 / 4 Comments

The global warming alarmists don't like hearing there might be other causes to climate change ... say, like increased activity from the Sun. A friend, who really is a rocket scientist, sent me a link to the story - Sun Makes History: First Spotless Month in a Century. For the first time in nearly 100 years the Sun passed without a ...

Global Cooling – Snow on Mt. Fuji

August 27, 2008 / No Comments

Mt. Fuji is tall enough to get snow pretty early on in the season. It's something like 3,776 meters. I know, I have been up it three times...despite the old proverb. "He who climbs Fuji once is wise, he who climbs it twice is a fool." What about three times? Anyway, it can get cold up there in late spring, early fall. But, ...

2008 – Coolest Year of the Past Five Years

August 24, 2008 / No Comments

What was the coolest year, in the last 5 years? The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) has the answer and apparently 2008 is. Even though we're above historical averages after the first 6 months, the forecast is clear and temperatures will be the coolest of the past five years. I don't think this is something encouraging, because the Earth is still globally ...

When Creation Fights Back

August 15, 2008 / No Comments

I don't particularly like the word 'nature.' I prefer the word creation. It's all about my convictions. But, that's not the point of this post. The point is when things get out of whack on our home planet, they can really get out of kilter. And, there is not a whole lot we can do about it. A flood in southern ...

Mt. Kilimanjaro Snow Cap Okay

August 15, 2008 / 2 Comments

An Ohio State University researcher claimed that Mt Kilimanjaro will lose its snow cap between 2015-2020. He made is guesstimate based on photos taken in 1912 and 2001. At that time, Mt. Kilimanjaro had lost 82% of its snow cap/ice cover. "The sky is falling in Africa, the sky is falling in Africa!" was the alarmists' cry. Turns out that according to ...
