Is There a Connection Between Nuke Testing and Weather?

Part 2 of 3 in a series

By Jay Mayer

As I mentioned in part 1 on my series on Nuclear testing and the dangers there of. Nuclear testing is an act of war on the environment, the same as chemo therapy is on the immune system. We are the earth and I cannot stress strongly enough the consequences we are to endure and already have, since 10 Nuclear weapons tests occurred last May.

Compton's Definition of nuclear explosions in part: The shock wave, a very high-pressure front, propagates outward at supersonic speed. Its arrival is experienced as a sudden and shattering blow followed by hurricane-force winds. The thermal radiation generated by a nuclear explosion travels at the speed of light and can burn all combustible materials for miles around.

On May 12, 1998 India conducted three secret underground tests in the Thar Desert near their border with Pakistan. May 13, 1998 -- Two more nuclear devices were detonated near Pokaran in the Thar Desert, 330 miles southwest of New Delhi.

On May 28, 1998 -- Pakistan detonated five underground tests in the Chagai Region of Pakistan's desolate southwestern Baluchistan Province.

A little over 3 Months later:

This mornings CNN's internet weather page, reads as follows:

September 10th. "Flooding Rampant Worldwide."

In India: Millions of people in the eastern Indian state of Assam are at risk after the worst floods in 50 years. More than 1,800 people have died. Floodwaters from the Brahmaputra river have submerged some 5,000 villages in the past nine weeks. More than 5 million homeless.

China: The worst floods along the Yangtze River since 1954. More than 3,000 killed and millions homeless this summer, Sudan: Rising Nile leaves many homeless -- Incessant heavy rainfall over the headwaters of the Nile River in Sudan during the past month has unleashed massive flooding that has destroyed 119,000 houses and left more than 200,000 people homeless in nine Sudanese states, the government said.

Mexico: Flooding leaves dozens dead Army brings emergency supplies to tens of thousands of Mexicans stranded by deadly floodwaters in southern Mexico. Six consecutive days of rains have left an estimated 25,000 homeless in more than 50 towns and villages. President Earnesto Zedillo told reporters that only the 1985 Mexico City earthquake, which killed 10,000 people, was a disaster greater in magnitude than last week's flash flooding

And that was just the highlights of today's news.

What makes these headlines of any special importance to you, is that events such as these have been going on for 3 months and on a daily basis. I am not kidding you.

Texas alone had close to 30 days of triple digit heat. That's serious and it ruined their economy, and then, then torrential rains and flooding came, what a mess! I believe it all could have been avoided.

Nuclear testing is bad for business, bad for health, bad for the environment, bad for the future.

July 21 is another example. AITAPE, Papua New Guinea (CNN) -- More than 6,000 villagers were still missing on Tuesday after tidal waves last week swamped the northwestern coast. Nearly 600 people were dead and the toll was expected to rise from a 23-foot tidal wave that crashed into Papua New Guinea's northern coast, crushing villages. The tsunami spawned by a 7.0 magnitude offshore earthquake hit late Friday night.

August 11, 1998 -- National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) reveals that July was the hottest month on record around the world. Severe heat waves during July scorched not only a broad area of the American Midwest, but parts of Asia, southeastern Europe and North Africa

If your still not convinced, then closely examine the following China flood figures.

August 15th China: Summer Floods: 2,000 dead, millions homeless. Damage has been estimated at $24 billion by official Chinese media. The floods have already affected some 240 million people in China, a fifth of the country's population and roughly equal to that of the United States.

Sounds like a war zone rather than a weather report to me. And that's what happens when nuclear weapons are released into the atmosphere or triggered deep within the earth's inner core.

Here's an interesting one:

Heat Wave Causes Old Bombs to Explode in Vietnam July 27, 1998 -- A week-long heat wave in central Vietnam caused four war-era bombs to explode, including a napalm device that destroyed 75 acres of forest, police said Friday. The temperature was 104 degrees when the napalm bomb went off, said police in Quang Tri Province.

August 10, 1998 -- Areas along Australia's southeastern coast experienced some of the heaviest rainfall in recorded history over the weekend. One inland community was submerged under more than 20 feet of water on Sunday. The rainfall received during the three days, was equivalent to what normally falls during a three-month period.

Weapons of mass destruction are good for nothing except destruction, that is their purpose, that is the result.

The fires in Florida as well, yes the rains which usually soak the south were mysteriously pushed North in May, (right around the time of the tests), and then what happens? The Midwest floods, Texas burns up, tornadoes violently strike down, and we watch it on the evening news. Well it's the not the end of the world ladies and gentlemen, but it might as well be for many of these victims have lost everything.

Just look at this flood summary for June 19 1998. Three weeks after the Pakistani tests on May 28, 1998.

Central United States and Northeast remain wet with very extensive flooding in Iowa. Also affected are the Dakotas, Eastern portions of Kansas, Nebraska, Western Minnesota, and parts of Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri and Oklahoma. Localized flooding plagued parts of Southeastern Ohio, Western Pennsylvania. Flooding also occurred in Parts of New York and New England.

That's a lot of water and more than enough to have extinguished the fires in Florida, if the rain had not mysteriously moved Northward.

As I mentioned in my first article, since I began my research on May 20th, there has not been a day when very extreme weather has not occurred. And by extreme I mean record breaking heat waves, historic flooding, drought, you name it WE'VE SEEN IT ON THE NEWS.

Do you ever stop to think that nature might be trying to tell us something?
