A recent article published in the journal of “Science” verified my intuition (or gut instinct) that rising sea temperatures provide deadly fuel for hurricanes as they gain strength in the Gulf of Mexico, before hitting the coast line of the southern United States (resulting in a “scene from Hell”–as the locals put it). There is no doubt that green house gas emissions are linked to global warming. Every time we fill up our cars with “over priced” gasoline (sold to us by the robber petrol baron’s), our exhaust fumes add to the syndrome which is now coming back to haunt us in previously unthinkable ways. And these ways are not good at all. First, the idea of global warming was just a theory two decades ago, but now, it is rather obvious that it is a dangerous reality, with deadly effects, and it is no longer just a theory at all! Global warming is eating our lunch, and the problem will only get worse before it gets better, so now is the time to act before our environment gets totally out of control in the future. If we fail to act now (and or in the future), then the universal floods Nostradamus wrote about could easily become a reality in the decades to come. So let’s all “get real” about Global Warming and it’s effect on our world (before its too late to fix)!

The feeling I had on 9-12-01, was that there were a couple of hundred Islamic terrorists inside the USA, who were ready to hit various targets across our nation at anytime. However–we haven’t really seen any terror in the USA since 9-11! So, is Homeland Security doing a good job, or, is the threat overstated? I don’t claim to have the answer. However, I will say that I have an “intuitive feeling” that the months of March and June “might be” months that terrorists could be active around the globe. If I ran the Dept. of Homeland Security–I would increase the security around the outer-perimeter of air force bases, naval air stations, and airports, to guard against the possibility of aircraft being shot down by terrorists with small arms and RPG’s. Nothing appears to be stopping anyone from trying to shoot down a jet on its final approach to the runway! Adding easy to see armed patrols around such airports and bases would seem like a prudent idea, and show of force would help to deter such acts from occurring.
According to NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, they report that 2005 was one of the hottest years on record. If Global Warming is real which obviously it is then I think that we will continue to seem a warming trend for the next several years. It is my feeling that the Gulf of Mexico will continue to produce numerous and large hurricanes, for many more years to come. One psychic friend of mine in Florida believes that New Orleans might be struck by another huge hurricane in 2006. Let’s hope not—but be on guard—in case this becomes reality! All of the nations in the Gulf of Mexico will continue to suffer the Wrath of Mother Nature.
Our point man in the hurricane ravaged coastline of Louisiana has phoned in the following report. The damage looks worse in real life, than it does on TV. There is an awful smell of death and stink in the air. The odor is terrible to smell. Boats have rested in places and ways that only Salvador Dali could have imagined (in a quite surrealistic manner). Snakes and alligators are everywhere, keeping workers on their toes in order avoid being bitten. According to him, it will take many years to fix the damage. We say good luck and God speed to everyone effected by the hurricanes!
Instant Karma A resident of Clovis, New Mexico, recently discovered that its “bad karma” to mess with mice. According to an article by the Associated Press, a man caught a mouse inside of his home, and instead of taking it outside and letting it go, he placed the little mouse inside of a pile of leaves he was burning outside in his yard (wow-what a nice guy). The mouse caught on fire, and ran back to the man’s house–catching it on fire! No one was injured–but the house and all of the man’s possessions perished in the flames. What’s the moral of the story? Be kind to little innocent animals (even mice–when possible), otherwise, it might come back to haunt you!
Terrorism poses a threat to the United States, but not as much of a threat as natural disasters do. Personally, I much more afraid of a tornado, than I am of a terrorist (you can shoot terrorists, but no gun in the world will stop a hurricane, or a tornado, or a flood or an earthquake).
And if global warming makes hurricanes occur more often, and with greater strength, then the United States is really in trouble! I had some "bad weather dreams" recently, which I shared with a local TV weatherman. In the dream, trouble was heading for a major metropolitan area, and the bad weather was heading for it from the southeast. Perhaps the Hurricane Katrina was what I saw. You can blame terrorists for acts of terror, but "who" can you blame for Acts of God?
The H5N1 strain of Bird Flu was recently confirmed in a city 20 miles northeast of Lyon, France’s third largest city. According to the Agricultural Ministry, it was found in a wild duck.
