Connection Between Nuke Testing And Weather

By Jay Mayer

Part 1 Of A Series

Extreme weather, that is what to look for, weather out of the ordinary, that is what you'll find. I've noticed one thing about weapons of mass destruction when they are deployed, (nuclear weapons tests), there is a high price that the elements, and the insurance companies, and humanity must pay.

Many years ago, I first began to notice the effects of Nuclear testing, when a week after a deployment a killer earthquake would become the story of the day, or a hurricane would be the breaking news, floods, droughts in Texas, Tsunami Tidal waves, you name it.

So do you think there is a connection between 10 nuclear tests conducted in May and record heat waves in the south? Twenty-nine days of triple digits in Texas, God help us. I have all the research, but unfortunately in it's most condensed form, there would be no room left in this article for any commentary.

Commentary is important, because we live in the Bay Area, and are extremely vulnerable to earthquakes here in California. Like the one that occurred in Afghanistan on May 31, where 5,000 people were killed.

It was not that long ago that the French government deployed six tests in the S. Pacific, (Fall/winter 1995-Jan. 1996). Isn't it more than possible that those tests heated up the water creating the phenomenon called El Nino? It is more than probable it is history. Hundreds of millions of amperes of heat will do just that. El Nino is a man made event. "The climate disturbances caused by El Nino occur when sea surface temperatures in the Southeastern Tropical Pacific are unusually high." That's is where the tests took place.

I remember calling up media, major media, leading media across our nation trying to warn US in advance of the great danger we were being subjected to.

December 27th, 1995 the French conducted their 5th test.

Ten days later the E. Coast blizzards effectively closed the Eastern Seaboard. Zero visibility for days, everything shut down. The Government, Congress, the airports, businesses. This was a man made event and cost US billions.

One year later at the exact same time and I quote the SF Chronicle headline, January 4th, 1997, "100,000 Homeless in Floods." More than 100,000 people, fleeing in trucks, boats and cars, have been evacuated from communities up and down the Central Valley in what state emergency officials said yesterday is the largest flood in California history-and a lot more water is on the way.

The headline in the Chronicle on January 5th read State Declared Disaster Area. President Clinton declared California "a major disaster" Saturday. Hardest hit were Sutter and Yuba counties, North of Sacramento where levees broke under the pressure of high water, leaving only the roofs of dozens of homes visible amid the murky brown water that stretched as far as the eye could see.

January 9th Yosemite surveys worst flood Damage on record. Park Closed at least through month. This is history ladies and gentlemen. And there's more, one year later we have the weather event called El Nino. Coincidence, I am most inclined not to think so.

I remember calling and faxing KATU in Portland Oregon repeatedly before the 6th test on January 27,1996. Ten days later they had the worst floods in 48 years. Another coincidence I think not.

Check out what happened on February 4th, 1996: Record low temperatures were set in at least 19 states Saturday morning. Thirty-six degrees below zero at La Crosse, WI (110 year record broken),

In Chicago at least seven people died in fires while trying to keep warm. Houston police said a 53-year-old man died on Friday when his clothes caught fire from burning coals he was using to keep warm in his apartment

TOWER, Minn, -- The temperature sank to 60 below the coldest ever recorded in the state.

If it's too dangerous to test weapons of mass destruction in the atmosphere, don't you think in the bowels of the earth might reap similar consequences.

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 nuclear in the Chagai Region of Pakistan's desolate southwestern Baluchistan Province. The following are just a few notable entries from my database. Since I began tracking these events, there has not been one day that extreme weather has not occurred.

May 20, 1998 -- Heavy rains swamped several areas of Australia's New South Wales State on Tuesday, causing a train derailment which killed two people. Emergency services were swamped with hundreds of calls for help as high winds and flooding caused havoc in the region

May 22, 1998 LA PAZ, Bolivia (CNN) -- Rescue workers are battling landslides and aftershocks to reach a remote area of Bolivia heavily damaged by two powerful earthquakes. The first quake had a magnitude of 5.9; the second registered at 6.8.

May 21, 1998 -- Temperatures soaring to 120 degrees Fahrenheit for the past few days in parts of India and Pakistan have claimed at least 34 lives.

May 29, 1998 -- Torrential rains have unleashed severe flooding across eight provinces in China this week, killing at least 128. It has become the worst flooding to strike the country in 100 years.

May 31, 1998 -- As many as 5,000 people are feared dead after a powerful earthquake, (6.9-7.1) struck remote northern Afghanistan, destroying numerous villages and leaving thousands of residents homeless. At least eight villages were completely wiped out. United Nations officials estimate that more than 50,000 people have been made homeless by the disaster.

NEW YORK -- Severe windstorms, hail and tornadoes across 12 states between May 30 and June 1 cost U.S. property and casualty insurance companies an estimated $650 million in insured losses, research firm Insurance Services Office Inc. said Wednesday. Hardest hit was Minnesota, reporting an estimated $200 million in insured losses for the period.

June 8, 1998 -- The most powerful earthquake to be felt in Iceland's capital in 30 years shook the southern half of the island nation last Thursday evening.

June 9, 1998 NEW DELHI, India (AP) -- The official death toll from a cyclone in western India's Gujarat state has reached 1,126, United News of India reported today. Since the storm hit land, the toll has been climbing steadily as bodies are pulled from debris or float back to shore after they were swept away by a tidal wave. Aid agencies have said the number of missing is probably many times that. Most of the missing, were salt workers.

August 2nd Saturday marked the 28th day in a row that Dallas had triple digit heat when the temperature rose to a record high 107 degrees, beating out the previous record of 104 set back in 1949.

August 10 China -- More than 2,000 people have died this summer in floods caused by seasonal rains that came a month early and fell much harder than usual. . 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. Economic damage was estimated at $4.8 billion weeks ago, the last time the Chinese government released figures.
