More Droughts, Fires and Deluges: Why? Simple. CO2's loving water more than
water likes itself.
The following explains why climate change is happening and is happening faster
than expected. The text reflects independent research by an individual who
graduated cum laude from the then largest university in Illinois,
USA, (29,000 students) in just over two years
(transcript). One period
of seven courses was ace'd for 24 credit hours
(Unique qualifications). Behind this summary conclusion
are thousands of downloaded academic, media and government documents. It
is not a gut-reaction opinion.
CO2's Hydrophilia(water-loving): The simple, molecular "how"
of droughts, fires and floods--the smoking gun.
CO2 likes water more than water likes itself whence carbonated beverages
having up to 27% CO2 of volume.
Increased atmospheric carbonation soaks up more ground and atmospheric
(FRQs at 34:1) causing droughts and fires.
"soda bottle shakes" cause destructive deluges and
Hurricanes are more numerous and powerful due to FRQs.
(Oil Droughts) buttressing the CO2 hydrophilia thesis:
Important to note that each barrel of oil on the average has 140 barrels
of natural gas whence blow-outs. Most oil field natural gas has no commercial
value since it cannot be profitably transported so it is burned off. Saudi
Arabia daily burns about 7 billion cubic feet of natural gas.
Horn of Africa: Downwind from Saudi/Kuwait/etc. oilfields,
the drought began and grew in 1965. During the 9-month OPEC oil embargo of
the mid-1970s when Saudi production dropped 95%, normal precipitation returned.
Since then, the social, economic and political chaos has worsened.
Forest: Brazil developed massive oil wells off its east coast:
50,000>100,000 barrels per day. As the wells developed, burned-off natural
gas metastasized a growing downwind drought envelope expanded in Amazon rain
forest reversing its CO2 sequestering into CO2 generation.
US Dustbowl #1: Began late 1920s with upwind massive
East Texas oil fields burning off vast amounts of non-commercial natural
gas. The CO2 traveled as Texas Panhandler across the Mid-West. Ended in 1939
with beginning of World War II when production dropped by 65%. Blaming the
farmers was mis-placed blame.
US Dustbowl #2: Began after WWII with development of
West Texas Permian Basin. Ended in 1956 when cheap Arab oil flooded market
causing massive drop in US production.
Hurrican Katrina and subsequent East Coast creeping drought: Hurricane Katrina
destroyed many Gulf of Mexico oil and gas pipelines from massive GOM wells
(50,000>100,000 barrels perday). Repairing oil lines first and burning
off (illegally) the natural gas, a drought envelope expanded up the US East
Coast. (VaTech almost canceled 2nd semester do to lack of water from extended
Afghanistan Chaos: Upwind Caspian Sea oil field burnoff
reduces downwind Afghani precipitation by 85%, insufficient for wheat but
enough for opium (the main revenue source for the Taliban).
(Fifteen oil drought events are documented in
While the burned-off natural gas can be curtailed, the
CO2 drought>forest fire>more CO2
closed loop is probably unstoppable.
Consistently, CO2's Hydrophilia has caused precipitation changes (too little
or too much) leading to social, economic and political chaos grounded in
universal, acclerating inflation from less food and more mouths, e.g., Syria
is the midst of 900 year drought.

Carbon Dioxide--The Global, Multi-Tasking Killer Molecule.
Western fossil fuel foolishness festers forest fires further fostering farther
floods. This map from New York Times (August 24, 2021) shows the above
sequence and consequences previously documented in the
droughts and deluges. The drought/deluge sequence was originally detailed
Oil Droughts (1982).
Petrophiliacs knew this back in the
1950s. And, the granddaddy of climate change predictors
was the physicist/mathematician Fourier who in 1824 said industrialization
from burning coal would have "greenhouse" effect. Or, maybe Benjamin Franklin
For every dollar of infrastructure lost to forest fires, the downwind deluges
destroy hundreds if not thousands of dollars of past human effort.
Forest fires release monstrous amounts of CO2 that soak up water which further
prevents local rainfall while causing downwind record-breaking downpours,
e.g., Colorado River basin going dry as Pacific moisture is absorbed by
fossil-fuel foolishness for long-distant discharge.
This is a self-sustaining, self-worsening, trans-national,
jetstream-delivered closed loop on Planet Earth. Examples:
California moisture deluges Texas, South, East Coast or New England depending
on prevailing wind pattern (see above map).

Hurricanes for Dummies
Satellite images of hurricanes making landfall show the mid-ocean "donuts"
The lower left quandrant pulls in human-sourced coastal CO2 that strips water
from particulates thereby forming transparent
As the hurricane rotates over the ocean, the CO2-stripped particulates
re-populate with ocean water as the in situ CO2 is saturated.
Satellite video images show the development of "cloud pimples" in the
right quadrants that expand like bacteria in a petri dish until a solid cloud
mass re-appears. (This process also generates
ship tracks[really cool, showing human-generated CO2
on Westcoast FRQing moisture with a distinct boundary, gradated by human
density ... far out!].)
Thus, cubic volume for cubic volume a FRQ'd hurricane contains more moisture
than a non-FRQ'd hurricane, i.e., greater intensity and precipitation.
Hurricane Gaston, 2004, stalled half-way over the mid-Atlantic Coast, showed
this constant merry-go-round of stripping and pimpling.
This visual circularity of stripping/pimpling/dumping has a linear
counterpart in the jetstream causing international and inter-continental

We are witnessing a hockey-stick accelerating, synergistic
meltdown which gives us a few years at most, not decades, to reverse
the CO2 rise: The list of countries increase each week with record numbers
of droughts, fires, deluges and floods .
Possibly, if not probably, we are experiencing de facto global,
atmospheric Chernobyl chain reaction in which we have only months rather
than years or decades. More fires means more droughts which means more fires
ad infinitum. Millions died in the German Holocaust from Zykon-B.

in area than the rest of wildfires on Planet Earth.
What needs to be done
will not be done.
If Europeans understood the molecular how of climate change, they
would demand a termination of Nord Stream 2 pipeline which will worsen the
pendulum of European weather extremes.
Likewise, after climate change disasters, the concrete-dependent rebuilding
speeds up climate worsening inasmuch as concrete production is the second
highest human source of CO2.
The same can be said for Biden's $3.5 trillion infrastructure pork-barrel
project--an unprecedented climate cancer. (Timism's
Project is a climate cure to reverse climate hell.)
In all similar cases, the cure is worse than the disease as politicians win
the battle of re-election while losing the war to save life on Planet Earth,

Based on more many historic droughts (listed in

fires and deluges in a few weeks. This is no time to fight the climate

unemployment, crime, corruption, etc.

Moral Imperative of saving life on Planet Earth from climate hell. You,
the reader, have a duty to open the mind of humanity not only to a better
