Harvey’s Record Rain Due To Nuclear Effects
...Not Carbon Emissions

By Yoichi Shimatsu
Exclusive to Rense

On of the most despicable responses to the Houston flood, besides the ransacking of neighbors’ homes and deliberate releases of toxic chemicals, is how proponents of climate change theory have taken advantage of the calamity to push the notion that global warming caused Hurricane Harvey. The scurrilous unscientific claim follows on the now-discredited prediction from the late 1990s that the turn of the millennium was to surely witness an unprecedented number of evermore powerful hurricanes. That wrong-headed forecast was based on the so-called “Hockey Stick” projection of a steep rise in global average temperatures, starting about 1997.
The predicted surge of super-hurricanes did not happen, and in fact neither did the hockey stick, to the eternal shame of an ethically bankrupt climate scientists. While Katrina, Sandy and Harvey have caused major property damage in dollar value, the destruction was mainly due to greed, the avarice of the real estate industry and mortgage lenders that caused massive construction booms on unsuitable land along low-lying seafront, estuaries, lagoons and flood plains. When a house is built on seaside sand instead of hilly rock, who’s to blame--the storm or the builder?
Weather History Debunks Climate Theory
Historical weather data shows to the contrary that there’s been no increase in the frequency or power of tropical storms and hurricane due to carbon emissions or alleged global warming.
- Prior to Harvey, the past 12 years set a record for the longest period without a major hurricane making landfall on the Atlantic and Gulf coasts.
- Duration is a good measure of storm strength, with the 28-day record set by Hurricane Curiaco in 1899, a whole century before the “hockey stick”.
- Forward speed, or how fast a storm moves across sea and land, is another indicator, that record being set by the New England Hurricane of 1938.
Fudging the Data
The setting of those records survive despite the data-tweaking (otherwise known as skewing or cheating) by the climate scientists. One casualty of skewing is the famous Labor Day Hurricane of 1955, which wrecked the Florida Keys, including Islamorada, which was obliterated, not just from rainfall but by being blown away. Yet recently, a determination was made that the barometric pressure dropped a tad lower during Wilma (2005) on its path through Mexico, barely edging out the legendary Labor Day storm. (Islamorada, which does not have a mosque, is Spanish for “Islands Village” or Isla Morada.)
The history of meteorology overwhelmingly rejects climate change theory, even when data has apparently been fudged by the climate fakers.
The Jet Stream Blocked Harvey
What then accounts for the record rainfall during Harvey? The short answer is a lack of forward speed. Instead of raining over a large area while on the move, Harvey practically stood still, dumping its moisture in a relatively small area. Now that standstill is something to consider: What stopped Harvey?
The long answer is based on what’s I’ve been pointing out since soon after March 2011: The Fukushima reactor meltdowns have seriously altered weather patterns around the Northern Hemisphere by massively expanding the ozone hole over the Arctic and even tilting the Earth’s axis (due to the impact on the planet’s core by the nuclear explosion inside Reactor 3).
In late August through now (early September), the northern jet stream made a very unusual “dip” as far south as Texas and northern Mexico, angling down in reverse direction from the Northeast. The pressure of the Fukushima-altered jet stream blocked the forward progress of Hurricane Harvey, which remained stalled in its tracks. The rain had nowhere else to go except south Texas and later Louisiana.
Nuclear Not Carbon is the Weather Changer
The standstill of Harvey proves once again that radioactivity from nuclear technology, for energy or test blasts, have had a much greater impact on the global climate than has emissions of carbon dioxide and other so-called greenhouse gases.
To clarify two points, since the climate crowd are so unethically eager to denounce critics as “deniers”, let me disclose that I have personally sequestered more carbon than the overwhelming majority of individual climate scientists with my kiln-building projects that have buried charcoal in desert soil and used the smoke to raise algae. There are reasons to reduce carbon in the atmosphere, related to the health of humans and other animal species, quite apart from the climate change mania.
Second, as an editor in Tokyo I wrote some of the publicity for the 1997 Kyoto Summit (where climate change and global warming theory became official UN doctrine under the Kyoto Protocol). That publicity and much of the conference costs were sponsored by two corporations, the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO, owner of Fukushima) and Toyota, which envisioned a global future of electric cars fueled by nuclear power plants. The leading voice at Kyoto was Al Gore, who is the scion and voice of the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), a major federal-affiliated builder, owner and operator of nuclear power plants, including the new Watts Bar.
The conclusion is obvious: Climate-change theory is a propaganda covertly encouraged by the global nuclear industry. Last year, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) gave tentative approval to the Houston NRG nuclear-power company to build new nuclear reactions along the South Texas coast. Does it start make sense now?
Author: Yoichi Shimatsu, science journalist, participated in the 2004 Asian tsunami rescue operation and was lead field researcher for two major universities on flawed architecture design that multiplied the number of drowning victims. He has conducted radioactivity research on 12 sojourns inside the Fukushima exclusion zone and found evidence on the California coast that contributed to the closure of the San Onofre nuclear plant.
