El Nino phenomenon unleashes its fury: Millions of families at risk of starvation and cattle perishing in a frightening drought: Pilot's too scared to land aircraft on blazing asphalt: Zimbabwe experiencing the highest temperatures in 60 years


As world leader's in Paris are guilty of navel–gazing over climate change...All over the country, desperate Zimbabweans are gazing forlornly into the cloudless sky and it has dawned on everyone that climate change is no longer a dismissible mantra peddled by fringe scientists but a real danger to livelihoods 

President Robert Mugabe took farms from white farmers and gave them to inexperienced natives adding to the tragedy...

As the El Nino phenomenon unleashes its fury, the Harare-based Meteorological Services Department says Zimbabwe is experiencing the highest temperatures in 60 years.
With millions of families now at risk of starvation and large numbers of cattle perishing in a frightening drought, a sullen-faced President Robert Mugabe told the ongoing Zanu-PF conference: "We continue to pray for more rain."
On November 13, a 50-seater Air Zimbabwe turboprop travelling from Harare to Kariba failed to land as the mercury shot beyond 43°C.
The captain concluded it was too dangerous to touch down, considering the high likelihood of engine malfunction and the aircraft tyres bursting upon contact with the blazing asphalt.
Aborting the landing, the pilots flew instead to Victoria Falls International Airport, 500 kilometres away, where they waited for the temperatures to cool down.
Airline manager Chris Kwenda said climate change could soon force them to change flight schedules. Mike Tapfuma Moyo, a private pilot who flies in Africa and the Middle East, told African Independent that high temperatures make flying tricky.
"At the best of times, landing an aircraft is no easy task.
It takes skill, concentration and often nerves of steel.
In the aviation industry, there's a reason why we say take-off and landing are the most dangerous segments of a flight," Moyo said.
All over the country, desperate Zimbabweans are gazing forlornly into the cloudless sky and it has dawned on everyone that climate change is no longer a dismissible mantra peddled by fringe scientists but a real danger to livelihoods.

The reason for the heat on the planet is the approach of Nibiru, or planet x as some call it. All the planets in the solar system are heating up from the inside out. 2016 will be the year of increasing disasters and weather.

There's still so much lying in the form of the omission.

And why has AGW turned into a recklessly broad term of man-made climate change?! There is no dumb & dumber way to push people away (in the long term) than to just imply that harry joe public is responsible for it.

joe public did not build a giant bloody nuclear power plant on the edge of a large ocean.

joe believes it is suicide to build something like that in a seismically active area.

In Joefornia state this year billions of sea creatures washed up dead on their shores. And as many still dying.. The most used term by scientific authorities is 'unusual'.

What's really unusual is that the 0.001% and their lapdog media & governments are absolutely sure that carbon taxes are the way to solve this. That just makes joe angry and he can't even eat fish out of the Pacific Ocean anymore.

The only reasonable solution is for the 0.001% to grow the frack up in their souls and help us all.

The 0.001% own patents on almost every solution. They choose to ignore their own capabilities and instead, inexplicably, they have set out to blame all of the rest of us! No one is excluded in the Nazi-like shame of being outside the 0.001%.

When the world is so stupid as to watch communists like Mugabe murder white farmers and confiscate their land and equipment, giving the land to his friends and relatives, what else do you expect but starvation? Zimbabwe used to be the bread basket of Africa. Nobody gives a darn about white people, but they support psychotic murderous Black thugs and Muslims.
The Lord Yahweh said that if people repent of their ways and turn back to Him, He will heal their land.
