Global Warming and Tornados in America’s South

Egad!  Our President, Rev. Repriestly, has asked me write today’s blog about killer tornados sweeping through our nation’s southland.  Normally, if Jael or other editors aren’t writing about this horror story, it would be Ally I. Feermeno’s assignment.  But she is doing a lot of research on nuclear power, both here and in Japan.  So they have volunteered me to report on this subject––one that no one really wants to talk about at this time. But, indeed, it is necessary to do so!
 First, all of us at Earth End – New Beginning extend our heartfelt condolences to the over 200 families that have lost loved ones as a result of  some 250 ravaging tornados ripping up homes and towns in several states.  Second, it is important to note that we only bring up Global Warming’s contributions to these tornadoes because very few in mass media or the internet news have mentioned it.

 Look!  Weather scientists and government officials know that Global Warming is a major contributor to these killer tornadoes.  In 2010, Kevin Trenberth, head of the Climate Analysis Section of the National Center for Atmospheric Research said:  “I find Climate Change … often gets underplayed . . . But there is a systematic influence on all of these weather events now-a-days because of the fact that there is this extra water vapor lurking around in the atmosphere than there used to be say 30 years ago.”  He added that this extra four percent of water invigorates storms, “and it’s unfortunate that the public is not associating these with the fact that this is one manifestation of climate change. And . . . these kinds of things will only get bigger and worse in the future.”

 In 2007,  Andrea Thompson of Live Science wrote that NASA itself was aware that Global Warming will increase   massive tornados:  “Global warming will make severe thunderstorms and tornadoes a more common feature of U.S. weather, NASA scientists said . . .”  Also she writes:  “Climate models have previously shown that Earth will see more heavy rainstorms as the atmosphere warms, but a new climate model developed by NASA researchers is the first to show the difference in strength between storms that occur over land and those over the ocean and how storm strengths will change in general.”

 So there you have it!  Those who should have known did know!  And those in charge have done little about it, very little indeed of the massive job needed to stop Global Warming.  Some weather analysis predict that in 2012 the nation and the world will see more killer tornados than ever!  In our weekly on-line Bible lessons, Rev. Repriestly often cites a verse from James:  “Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin” (4: 17).  And we all know that when sin is not repented of, to the point of changing directions, only judgment awaits.  How many more Americans must die before government officials change their neglect of Global Warming?  Why do we tempt the final judgment of God?
