El Nino and La Nina: The Controls on Rainfall and Drought in the Western USA

Have you ever wondered why weather-related news stories from the western USA seem to go from hot, dry weather, droughts, extensive wildfires, and forest fires to the other extreme: heavy rainfall seemingly for days on end, often with cliffside houses washing from their perches into the Pacific Ocean? On-line stories are often accompanied with illustrative video. There is a seemingly never-ending string of weather-related stories carrying western datelines, seemingly varying from dry to drenching, from one extreme to another.

Sometimes climate alarmists claim this is an artifact of our use of fossil fuels, and we are causing these wild excursions because of the increasing amounts of the trace gas CO2 in the atmosphere.

The Questions

“Are we causing these excursions?”

“What is going on here?”

Answers. Starting with some History

Clues come from the history of the Spanish-speaking fishermen who plied Continue reading “El Nino and La Nina: The Controls on Rainfall and Drought in the Western USA”

Facebook Censorship of CASF

Robert W. Endlich

 [So, it appears as if the Facebook part of Big Tech is dredging newspapers’ opinion pages, looking for people who criticize the polemic of human-caused CO2-fueled global warming catastrophe.]

This post contains a series of four documents, starting with a 3 May 2019 Letter to the Editor of the Las Cruces Sun-News by CASF member, Fran Lavery, and ends with Facebook censoring my views.

Intermediate steps include a 12 May 2019 Letter to the Editor of the Sun News from Climate Activist Peter Kuntz of Northglenn, Colorado, and my Comment, taking Kuntz to task, and now, recently discovered (June 2021) Facebook actions to prevent my Comment from achieving widespread notice.

Today’s post shows Facebook is censoring views it does not like.

The sequence below brings directly to CASF, our members and friends, and other curious individuals, proof that Big Tech, rather than fostering Continue reading “Facebook Censorship of CASF”

The many follies of Biden’s Climate Plan and his Earth Day Anniversary Climate Summit

Robert W. Endlich

The notion that the USA can cut in half its CO2 emissions from the peak emissions that occurred here in 2005 is fantasy.

President Joe Biden held a virtual climate summit on the fifty-first anniversary of the first Earth Day, originally held 22 April 1970.  When confronted with facts, measurements, observations, and data concerning
climate history, Biden’s climate plan is based on trying to prevent temperature increases which have occurred naturally many times in the recent past.  This post will explore some of the most ill-informed and ignorant statements, plans, and actions, which all together will have no measurable impact on the climate, and will only cause economic harm to us, Earth’s human residents.

EARTH DAY ORIGINS

Let’s start with the fact that since that first Earth Day, not a single Continue reading “The many follies of Biden’s Climate Plan and his Earth Day Anniversary Climate Summit”

Human-Caused Climate Change? Possible Lessons from Weather Modification Operations During the Vietnam War

Robert W. Endlich

On 20 March 2021, I presented “Human-Caused Climate Change? Possible Lessons from Weather Modification Operations During the Vietnam War;” graphics are posted on the web site at this link.

The presentation delved into these subject areas: a personal timeline, geography of Southeast Asia, A History, from of the loss of French Indochina to the disclosure and declassification of US weather modification efforts, climatology and the monsoons, cloud physics and cloud seeding, cloud seeding history—mostly from newspapers, sensational stories and wild speculation, and serious research especially that led by the late Dr. Joanne Simpson.

[Whenever the author mentions SECRET and/or TOP SECRET missions, activities, or code words, he is referring to the classification at that time.  Everything in this post has since been declassified.  Ed]

I spoke on weather modification efforts by the military in Southeast Asia: Operation Popeye, 1966, Operation Compatriot/Intermediary, 1967-72, my 1969 in-flight observations over the Ho Chi Minh Trail, disclosure of the project, US Senate hearings, and declassification of this formerly TOP SECRET effort.

In doing my research, several unresolved items resulted in puzzlement for me including the now declassified early 1967 State Department memo which recommended pursuing cloud seeding, internet-available literature which is all over the place on details, and a popular, but seriously in error, post in Gizmodo.

My presentation graphics contain the above subject areas; those interested in my references and my thoughts can see both in the graphics; both are evident. Continue reading “Human-Caused Climate Change? Possible Lessons from Weather Modification Operations During the Vietnam War”

Blatant Examples: Massive Vote Fraud in the 2020 Presidential Election

Robert W. Endlich
Introduction:

While I was watching the returns on Election Night, 3 November 2020, and into the early morning hours of 4 November, I saw extremely suspicious activity—vote counting was suspended in the swing states; the suspensions of vote counting were reported on live TV as they happened.

One report from Fulton County (Atlanta Metro), Georgia, said they suspended counting because of a “massive water leak.”

How convenient.

Later reports were that a single urinal had overflowed in the morning, was promptly fixed, and the area was summarily cleaned up.

But we could see on live TV that counting was halted also in Michigan, Continue reading “Blatant Examples: Massive Vote Fraud in the 2020 Presidential Election”
