Good Luck Hawkeye! (10 days now since hearing from her, she usually posts every day!)

Still no news from Hawkeye after the catostrophic hurricane, Ian made landfall earlier this week in Hawkeye's vicinity: Hawkeye, if you are able to read this, know you are in our thoughts and prayers not just from me but the readers of TBW too. Take care dear lady!

Climate Change 2022

Former President Lyndon B. Johnson (centre left) and Vice President Spiro Agnew (centre right) witness the liftoff of Apollo 11. Is he the real reason behind climate change and the collapse of the environment?

"Our very future depended on being the ones who first seized ownership of space."Control of space means control of the world,” Johnson declared. “From space, the masters of infinity would have the power to control the earth’s weather, to cause drought and flood, to change the tides and raise the levels of the sea, to divert the gulf stream and change temperate climates to frigid.” Vice President Johnson at Southwest Texas State University (1962).



Friday, 12 August 2022 Nay-sayers, deniers, and sceptics, Our dear Lord gave you your own eyes and ears—USE THEM! Look around and wake up—Observe and take notice, our weather is not acting as it should be! The fires, heat, droughts and even floods are killing people, wildlife, agriculture and the planet!

Europe is on track to suffer its worst drought in hundreds of years, with wildfires raging and some rivers running dry. Several countries have introduced emergency measures to save water, even the UK. 

The Northern Hemisphere is moistureless—With droughts from California to China, I have never known a summer like this. Western Europe is parched as we enter the next heatwave with no rain in sight for August. The drought weather here in Holland started in the middle of Feb! Coincidently after three once-in-a-hundred-year storms in just one week! Ironically at that time many places in Ireland, the UK and many parts of Europe suffered horrendous flooding. Since then there has been no meaningful rainfall in the UK, and many parts of Europe.



In 1958, during the Explorer 1 launch, NASA first observed changes in the solar orbit of the earth, along with alterations to the earth’s axial tilt, suggesting solar activity was responsible for fluctuations in our planet's weather. A scientist at the time, Milutin Milankovitch came up with a startling theory, revealing that Earth's weather is, in fact, changing due to extraneous factors that have absolutely nothing to do with human activity. 

An event had happened a year earlier which had shaken the very foundation of scientists' and astronomers' belief in the causes of climate change here on Earth and it had nothing to do with greenhouse gases. Sixty years ago, on April 1, 1960, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) launched TIROS-1, the world’s first successful meteorological satellite. It was a great success for the fledgeling NASA which had been formed on July the 29th after the former Soviet Union launched Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite to be successfully placed in orbit around Earth on October 4, 1957. The space race between the USA and the Soviet Union had begun.



Wednesday, 13 July 2022 Dangerous Europe heatwaves continue! Europe is lighting up! Heat surge is causing massive crop damage, danger to life, shortage of water, and massive wildfires as a new heatwave is set to break many heat records from Spain to the UK with no end in sight!

Spain

Temperatures were set to soar above 40 degrees Celsius across large parts of Spain and Portugal this week as the Iberian Peninsula faces a second heat wave in less than a month. The mercury was to hit 42 degrees Celsius (107.6 Fahrenheit) in Spain's southeastern region of Extremadura and 41 degrees in Andalusia, Spain's meteorological agency AEMET said.

Temperatures in Spain's normally cooler northwestern region of Galicia were predicted to rise above 35C." This heatwave really has the potential to be exceptional," said AEMET spokesman Ruben del Campo. The heat wave began Sunday and could "last nine or ten days, which would make it one of the three longest heat waves Spain has seen since 1975," he told AFP. Heat waves have become more likely due to climate change, scientists say.



Friday, 20 May 2022 Whatever autumn 2022 has in store for us—Massive food shortages, incredible inflation, un-payable energy bills, poverty, evictions, civil unrest, another Covid variant, and maybe even WWIII—Remember the biggest underlying threat to our survival as a species is climate change!

I do know there are many global warming/climate change sceptics out there, however, instead of me bombarding you with loads of science and graphs, here is my pragmatic take, dealing with things sensibly and realistically in a way that is based on practical rather than theoretical considerations. Over the years, I have noted Holland is getting hotter, below are my honest views on a tricky subject.In early August 2020 temperatures in many parts of Europe for the coming week at the very least, was set to exceed 40 deg C, (104F). Now, for people living in Arizona or North Africa, 40 deg C may seem like a walk in the park but in other countries, such as Belgium, Holland, Germany etc, 40 deg C is extremely uncomfortable, even dangerous. You see, our infrastructure is not built for these types of temperatures, most of us don't have airco for instance. Our homes are built to trap heat, not to reflect it.

There is one thing we all have which no government, no dictator, mad-man or killer can take away from us—Our relationship and conversations with God—And with a healthy dose of the Holy Spirit we can even be happy during these terrible times!

On the very day Ukrainian President Zelensky advised the world to stock up on anti-radiation pils and to quickly construct air raid shelters against Putin's increasing nuclear threat, our sun shoots off yet another X-class flare—And, is another, very good reason to maybe stock up those anti-radiation pils and build a sturdy air raid shelter, but, just a little bit deeper, because if Putin doesn't get you there are other ways. By the way, the X-class flare is not a danger to us—This time!




George Orwell's classic novel, 1984 begins:

It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen. Winston Smith, his chin nuzzled into his breast in an effort to escape the vile wind, slipped quickly through the glass doors of Victory Mansions, though not quickly enough to prevent a swirl of gritty dust from entering along with him.

But if he had written it today, the opening paragraph could have been much worse— Something like this?

It was an incredibly hot, sticky, day in April as the early heatwave intensified. The neural-network gently reminded people it was thirteen-o-clock. Winston Smith, his face protected by a mask, nuzzled his chin into his hungry frame in an effort to escape the hot dusty chemical laden wind. He slipped through the glass doors of "Rainbow Mansions" glancing into the sky and seeing a sickly yellowish haze



Sunday, 20 March 2022 A Letter From Holland! War In Europe Yet Again! Putin is called a world leader by some, rather inappropriately I may add. And an animal by others—Which is extremely unkind to animals: But—What does Bible Prophesy Say About Russia—Britain And—The US In These Terrible Times?

Time and tide wait for no man, in fact, if mankind is still prevalent and living on this planet in 130 years time, which I seriously doubt—All 7.9 billion of us living here at this “moment in time” will all have gone. (Look around. . . Your wife, kids, puppy-dog! They will all be gone) Think about that. So it's kind of ironic I guess, that Europe could be, once again the theatre for another World War! A stroke of incredible arrogance and lunacy has been committed by one single narcissistic psychopath. (Where have we heard that before?) President Putin is the grand master this time around—Who, is called a world leader by some, rather inappropriately I may add. (An oxymoron of staggering hypocrisy! Leading us all backwards. . . ) And an animal by others—Which is extremely unkind to animals, wouldn't you agree? 



Tuesday, 22 February 2022 The Mighty Military-Industrial Complex—1957, the year the space race started, the year our Sun recorded a record number of Sunspots, our planet recorded a record number of major quakes and the year global warming started and natural disasters began increasing—Its all here!

It is perhaps the perfect day to reflect just how f#cked up our planet has declined finds itself in once again just as President Putin orders his troops into the Ukraine. He is the latest megalomaniac in a long list of narcissistic maggots who believe it is their destiny to have people killed in the glory of his name! I ask myself, once again, why-oh-why do we keep on voting for these cruel selfish despots? Below is the reason our planet is on the verge of absolute destruction and—It has nothing to do with factories, airplanes and cars!

Sunday, 16 January 2022 Just another volcano eruption in a catalogue of recent geological disasters! We are not prepared for what is coming and neither are our governments, experts or scientists! The "Day After Tomorrow" is coming–The big question is... Will you be ready? Will you be next?

The eruption of the Hunga Tonga-Hunga Haʻapai volcano sent shockwaves across the South Pacific, yesterday. The underwater volcano erupted off the island of Tonga blasting rocks, ash and steam an incredible 60,000ft, almost 20km into the sky which will have a cooling climate effect for at least the next couple of months and depending on the duration and size of the eruption could cool the planet. The shock wave from the eruption reverberated around the world smashing windows hundreds of 'kms away and causing flooding from a tsunami thousands of 'kms away, Bill Laughing-Bear mailed me saying his cabin rocked from the explosion thousands of miles a way in Alaska!
