Natural Disasters in the United States
What’s up with all of the natural disasters going on throughout the country? The Midwest has a huge drought and probably one of the hottest summers on record. Largest wildfires on record in Colorado. Huge storms throughout the Midwest and Northeast. Huge drought followed by massive rainfall in Southeast. Water shortages as usual in Southwest. I haven’t heard of anything from the Northwest. But seriously WTF is going on, I don’t remember any summers being this messed up in my life. I am only 19 so it could just be I don’t have a long memory bank to draw on.

The government has the ability to alter weather patterns…They have been playing with mother nature for decades. They do this by spraying chemicals into the atmosphere which leave behind “Chem-trails” not to be mistaken by contrails (condensed water vapors which left by planes that quickly evaporate).
The government runs a very expensive and under the radar program called HAARP. High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program. Google that and/or chemtrails to see for yourself
@thomaschong, I don’t know what you saw in Bangladesh 50 years ago, or how you can even remember what was in the sky at the time… Clouds? Smoke? Smog? Fog? Chem-trails? Contrails? Drug fumes? I am not even sure what you are trying to get at. Just because Bangladesh was dirt poor at that time, doesn’t mean every country in Asia was without an air force…Jet air crafts were invented and flying high in the sky prior to the 60′s.
@mercurial, No, I have not read/hear about that, but it definitely sounds plausible…I shall give the document a gander.
It’s not just in the U.S. Here in the uk the last few years have been a bit crazy, we’ve had extremely harsh winters followed by no summer, and in this last year we haven’t really had a proper season at all. Winter was extremely mild, with some hot weather in march, and then cold weather and snow in April. I have also experienced random days of 80mph winds…boy does that make a mess. Over the last few weeks as well there has been some pretty bad flooding.
Now although most of us haven’t seen weather like this before in mass there is no doubt in my mind that it is probably pretty normal. After all our records of weather only go back a hundred years or so. That’s a pretty tiny fraction of time in the grand scheme of things.
However I have read about a few theories and the one I lean toward most is the idea that the poles shifting could be behind it. Or the even more simple explanation that every once in a while the temperature of the earth does change by a few degrees, which does make a big difference over all.
@siantastic, Ya I forgot about the winter over here too. I go to college in a place were we normally get around 80 inches of snow, we only got 20. And in March we had 3 80 degree days in a row when the normal temperature was in the 30′s. Something is up and I was just wondering if anyone else noticed it. Apparently others have :0
@thegouj, just today my teenage son and I were talking about this. Either my eyes are getting more sensitive, or the sun is absolutely piercingly bright. Sunglasses don’t help much at all, especially when the sun reflects off the rear window of cars while driving. My childhood summers were never this bright or this hot.
Well i live in Virginia and the weather for the past 4 days has been horrible. I was out of power for 2 days with the temperature being well over 100 degrees. This is odd for living in a mountain community. Strong winds, hail, and severe thunderstorms made me feel like i was living in Oklahoma again.
