Weird Cloud Yesterday just before Sunset.

Photo taken July 29, 2016 at 7:30 PM

It's at the middle of the photograph, right above the electric wires. It kind of looks like a cross between a bunch of cigars and a zeppelin!

2016 IS STRANGE Part 22 // JULY

Latest vid from LAST MESSAGES. Includes the SAnd Fire in Sta. Clarita, Calif. which started just this past week.

2016 IS STRANGE // July 18 New Orleans

Right in my neighborhood!

What I don't like about Blogger's software is the fact that they cut off the sides of the vid!

2016 IS STRANGE Part 20 // June-July, and the Reason Why!

First, the latest from Youtuber Last Messages:

Very weird clouds and storms in this video compilation from around the world. What's the
reason? The chemical mess in the air (at 0:35 in) cause by our fossil fuel emissions including chemtrails from all the jet planes' exhausts.

The additional carbon released into the atmosphere as carbon dioxide (CO2) or as methane (natural gas - CH4) increases the insulation of the atmosphere, causing the temperature to increase. With each 1 degree Celsius increase the amount of water vapor in Earth's atmosphere increases by 7%. The increased heat and moisture, of course, makes the atmosphere more energetic in an attempt to cool things down (more cloud cover), but actually makes things even warmer!. We are now about 1.2 degrees Celsius above 1880s levels.

Feedbacks and Peak Fossil Fuel Emissions.

In the above graphic you see all global energy-related emissions staying relatively flat for the past three years while CO2 content continued to increase, with a record jump in carbon dioxide content this past winter and spring. That means one, two or all of three things: the carbon sinks are no longer taking in as much carbon as they used to even just last year, natural "positive" (amplifying) feedbacks are kicking in, or the end of El NiƱo is evicting an enormous amount of carbon from the planet's oceans.

Some More Weird Weather.

I'm busy watching Angel of Apocalypse's latest vid. So far I haven't seen anything weird weather-wise.

So I'm going to blurb-reblog four weird weather blogs by Robertscribbler. He can be alarmist at times, but usually he's a good reporter on the global weirding we're experiencing.

Just as Whitley Strieber predicted in The Coming Global Superstorm -- temps in the mid-eighties Fahrenheit on the shores of the Arctic Ocean: Fahrenheit 85.9 Near Arctic Ocean Shores — Extreme Heatwave Settles in Over North-Central Siberia, Canada’s Northern Tier.

70.8 North, 69.2 East. It’s the Lat, Long coordinate location of a section of the Yamal Peninsula in Siberian Russia. A typically chilly region of frozen but now thawing ground more than 4 degrees of Latitude north of the Arctic Circle. A place that saw the appearance of odd, disturbing (and now controversial) methane blowholes pockmarking the melting permafrost during 2014. Today, the high temperature in a land now being forced to rapidly warm by human-caused climate change spiked to a tropical 80 degrees Fahrenheit (26.4 C)at 0800 UTC. Tomorrow, temperatures are expected to again rise to 80 F (26.5 C). And in the same location on Thursday, the mercury is forecast to strike close to 86 F (30 C).
Across the Arctic Ocean at Latitude 71.4 North and Longitude 111.7 West, Canada’s Victoria Island is today also seeing temperatures spike to near 80 F (26.8 C). It’s a place encircled by sounds of wet crackling and fluid sighs. The mournful songs of melting sea ice. A sad threnody for the end of a much more stable and hospitable climate age. And there, and even further north to Banks Island, readings are expected to range from 80 to 82 F (26.7 to 27.7 C) on Wednesday and into Thursday.

Wednesday Typhoon Nepartak blew up into a Category 5 Super Typhoon -- equal to Category 5 Major Hurricane -- over a Western Pacific Ocean hotspot. The storm came ashore as a Category 4 Super Typhoon after 6:30 a.m. Taiwan local time, Friday morning, It's since crossed Taiwan and weakened to a Category 1 Hurricane Typhoon and is on its way to Southeastern China. Unfortunately, on its projected veering east over China, the storm will rain a lot of rain on parts of China that have already seen really bad -- historic -- flooding.

In Los Estados Unidos Americanos ;^), June was the hottest June on record. For more, click here.

Pyrocumulus cloud near Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada earlier this year.
Previously posted at Robertscribbler.
Remember the Fort McMurray fire? Well that sort of thing, which can threaten cities, is expected to be rather common in the future, including in Russia, where there are lots and lots of fires in Siberia right now. For more, click here.

Now a link to Angel of Apocalypse's latest. I've finished watching it and found it's very light on weird weather, so I figure it's not worth posting the vid.

Crikey, Do I Look Like an Idiot!

Remember this post about the Jet Stream doing something weird by crossing the equator?

It turns out that this sort of thing is not unprecedented and not even unusual. In fact, it is a mechanism, one of a few or several, by which the air of the Northern Hemisphere mixes with the air of the Southern Hemisphere. So it actually is something that would happen in a normal world.

However, The Washington Post interviewed Jennifer Francis, professor of meteorology at Rutgers University who specializes in the relationship between global warming and the jet stream and she said that “cross-equator flow cannot be unprecedented, maybe not even all that unusual.”

This broadsheet also interviewed Sam Lillo, who is working toward his PhD in Meteorology at U of Oklahoma and he replied, “None of this is unusual, There isn’t a wall at the equator separating the two hemispheres, and air is free to flow from one side to the other.”

But of course, I uncriticaly reblogged Robertscribbler's article which stated that this was " Something that would absolutely not happen in a normal world," quoting four paragraphs from it verbatim including the above phrase (in quotes), and made myself look like an idiot when the Washington Post article came out. A closer look at the article's first graphic from Earth Nullschool shows that jet stream that branched out and sent a stream crossing the equator was not the polar one at the 80th North parallel, but the subtropical one further south. Now to his credit, Robert has toned down the content of his blog article, parts somewhat, parts considerably.

Now when the Polar Jet Stream really does jump the Equator and join the other polar stream, that would be really, really weird. Possibly even the end of our regular seasons.

I guess it's back to posting Angel of Apocalypse and LastMessage's YouTube videos and even some of my own.

Some Photos I Took in the Past Few Days.

The photos are of clouds that look weird or put the sun in weird places or both.

Taken June 29, 2016 at 6:38 PM
Sun looks like it's in the north-northwest.

Taken at the same day and time.
The Sun is supposed to be above, inline with the tree. 

Taken same day at 7:55 PM just before Sunset.
Sunlight appears in the northwest to northeast, across the sky. 

Taken same day at 8:18 PM, quarter hour after Sunset.
Note the pink light behind the cloud off to the northeast.

Same day, same time.
The Sun appears to be in the northwest!

Same day, same time.
Here's where the Sun is supposed to have set -- behind the big tree!

Taken July 1, 2016 at 8:27 PM Just after Sunset.
These clouds are weird -- they look like they are formed from passenger jet chemtrails!

Same day, two minutes later.
There's this white and grey cloud in front of a pink sky!
It was very pale blue with grey margins about five minutes before!
(Couldn't get a good photo of that -- iPhone camera and window screen in the way)

2016 is strange.
