EXTREME WEATHER 2021

I read somewhere that to really understand something is to be liberated from it. Yet, how can we liberate ourselves from our vain attempt at global progress which is, in all intents and purposes, destroying the very place in which we live? Our world is collapsing, an implosion on a scale unimaginable just a few years ago. Without a doubt, if we continue on our current path we will lose our home and everything in it. Mankind’s environment is collapsing just as fast as its society. Planet Earth’s resources are dwindling at an alarming rate. Animals, plants, fossil fuels, minerals, water, air and soil are all diminishing at an unsustainable speed while the world’s population is increasing.

Alaska's Aleutian Islands hit with another "Bomb Cycle" Hurricane winds creating chaos from North Dakota to Kansas with another mammoth storm system developing in the North-East of the US bringing with it heavy snow affecting millions as North Dakota smashes heat record
The GOES-West satellite captured this stunning GeoColor imagery of a strengthening mid-latitude cyclone near the Aleutian Islands as it approached the Gulf of Alaska.

This low-pressure system reached a low of 961 mbar with wind speeds of 74 mph and wave heights in excess of 40 feet, according to the National Weather Service Ocean Prediction CenterAlaska is set for another monster "Bomb Cycle" storm, the 2nd in just 15 days of 2021 as the US and Canada are battered by Hurricane-force winds yesterday and Thursday.

Thursday, 14 January 2021 "Unlike anything they're accustomed to seeing!" An intense winter storm is rapidly developing over southern Canada, forecast to move into the Midwest of the United States and reach the Southeast states by Friday with another waiting in the wings and set to follow

The most intensive storm ever recorded smashed into Alaska’s Aleutian Islands chain on Thursday with a ferocity seen only in the blockbuster movie, "The Day After Tomorrow."

“It’s the most intense storm ever recorded in the North Pacific, excluding typhoons,” said Brian Brettschneider, an NOAA research scientist with the National Weather Service. The centre of what forecasters refer to as “bomb cyclone” was measured at a record-low barometric pressure of 921 millibars, equivalent to the eye of a Category 4 hurricane and the lowest documented over the Aleutians as far back as the 1950s, Brettschneider said.
