First off I said for years its going to be funny when the cooling comes back and the media and government flips to cooling fear and last year it was the Polar Vortex and then as I predicted ICE AGE hit the mainstream media it all reminded me of how last year the media blamed high food priced on the rise of oil and gas and this year they are blaming the rise of food on low oil and gas stressing the market and governments tax base. PEOPLE YOU ARE NOT THIS STUPID ARE YOU? The difference between your freedom and your enslavement is one word and simply refusing to participate. In Canada we have a constitution its actually a corporate charter but none the less it in of its own is all you need even if you believe your rights come from governments AND THEY DON’T but for the sake of Statism let say they do. in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms
“freedom of conscience and religion; freedom of thought, belief, opinion, and expression, including freedom of the press and other media of communication; freedom of peaceful assembly; and. freedom of association.”
NOW AS I SEE IT… My conscience says to me paying tax supports wars it supports corrupt politicians, supports oil sand, polution, factory farming, soil erosion, murders, war mongering, lying media, erosion of freedoms, abusive police state, indoctrination not education, healthcare that poisons, food that poisons, genetic modification, and the list goes on MY CONSCIENCE says I can not pay tax MY MORAL CODE says paying tax makes me a partner in all these crimes. AND as for freedom of religion I am not a religious man but I believe in love and that if there is a god or a create its one of love and nature and what our tax is being used for is not of God or nature is is evil and inequality it is nations hoarding wealth while others starve its is wars for oil when we could have free energy but the ruling class supresses free competing technology they cant use to keep us enslaved. NOT ONLY IS IT YOUR DUTY TO NOT PAY TAX YOUR LIFE AND YOUR CHILDREN’S LIVES AND THE FUTURE OF MEN KIND not MEN UNKIND depends on you ending your complacency NOW SO STOP LABORING AND PAYING!
OK on with the story
The Dust Bowl, also known as the Dirty Thirties, was a period of severe dust storms that greatly damaged the ecology and agriculture of the US and Canadian prairies during the 1930s; severe drought and a failure to apply dryland farming methods to prevent wind erosion (the Aeolian processes) caused the phenomenon. The drought came in three waves, 1934, 1936, and 1939–40, but some regions of the High Plains experienced drought conditions for as many as eight years. With insufficient understanding of the ecology of the Plains, farmers had conducted extensive deep plowing of the virgin topsoil of the Great Plains during the previous decade; this had displaced the native, deep-rooted grasses that normally trapped soil and moisture even during periods of drought and high winds. The rapid mechanization of farm equipment, especially small gasoline tractors, and widespread use of the combine harvester contributed to farmers’ decisions to convert arid grassland (much of which received no more than 10 inches (250 mm) of precipitation per year) to cultivated cropland.
During the drought of the 1930s, the unanchored soil turned to dust, which the prevailing winds blew away in huge clouds that sometimes blackened the sky. These choking billows of dust – named “black blizzards” or “black rollers” – traveled cross country, reaching as far as such East Coast cities as New York City and Washington, D.C. On the Plains, they often reduced visibility to 1 metre (3.3 ft) or less. Associated Press reporter Robert E. Geiger happened to be in Boise City, Oklahoma to witness the “Black Sunday” black blizzards of April 14, 1935; Edward Stanley, Kansas City news editor of the Associated Press coined the term “Dust Bowl” while rewriting Geiger’s news story.
The drought and erosion of the Dust Bowl affected 100,000,000 acres (400,000 km2) that centered on the panhandles of Texas and Oklahoma and touched adjacent sections of New Mexico, Colorado, and Kansas.
The Dust Bowl forced tens of thousands of families to abandon their farms. Many of these families, who were often known as “Okies” because so many of them came from Oklahoma, migrated to California and other states to find that the Great Depression had rendered economic conditions there little better than those they had left. Author John Steinbeck wrote Of Mice and Men (1937) and The Grapes of Wrath (1939) about migrant workers and farm families displaced by the Dust Bowl.
Little Ice Age
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
For the most recent period much colder than present and with significant glaciation, see Last glacial period.
For the most recent period as warm as present, see Medieval Warm Period.
The reconstructed depth of the Little Ice Age varies between different studies (anomalies shown are from the 1950–80 reference period)
The Hunters in the Snow by Pieter Brueghel the Elder, 1565
The Little Ice Age (LIA) was a period of cooling that occurred after the Medieval Warm Period (Medieval Climate Optimum). While it was not a true ice age, the term was introduced into the scientific literature by François E. Matthes in 1939. It has been conventionally defined as a period extending from the sixteenth to the nineteenth centuries, or alternatively, from about 1350 to about 1850, though climatologists and historians working with local records no longer expect to agree on either the start or end dates of this period, which varied according to local conditions. NASA defines the term as a cold period between AD 1550 and 1850 and notes three particularly cold intervals: one beginning about 1650, another about 1770, and the last in 1850, each separated by intervals of slight warming. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Third Assessment Report considered the timing and areas affected by the LIA suggested largely independent regional climate changes, rather than a globally synchronous increased glaciation. At most there was modest cooling of the Northern Hemisphere during the period.
Several causes have been proposed: cyclical lows in solar radiation, heightened volcanic activity, changes in the ocean circulation, an inherent variability in global climate, or decreases in the human population
